    Do you, like 56 percent of the US population, believe that the US should "not get too involved" in the Ukraine situation? Do you think that the US administration putting us on a war footing with Russia is a bad idea? Are you concerned that the new, US-backed leaders of Ukraine -- not being elected -- might lack democratic legitimacy? Are you tempted to speak out against US policy in Ukraine; are you tempted to criticize the new Ukrainian regime?

    Be careful what you say. Be careful what you write. President Obama has just given himself the authority to seize your assets.

    According to the president's recent Executive Order, "Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine" (first reported by WND's Aaron Klein), the provisions for seizure of property extend to "any United States person." That means "any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States."

    Declaring a "national emergency" over the planned referendum in Crimea to determine whether or not to join Russia, the US president asserts that asset seizure is possible for any US person "determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State":

    (i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following:
    (A) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine;

    (B) actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine; or

    (C) misappropriation of state assets of Ukraine or of an economically significant entity in Ukraine;

    The Executive Order is, as usual, so broadly written that it leaves nearly everything open to interpretation.

    I guess we're not suppose to notice that Obama and the State Dept are guilty of all three.

    lol....hey, man, how ya been ?

    well, Obama's welcome to a rambunctious, stubborn, hard-headed, constantly farting 8 month old chihuahua/jack russell mix who tries to live up to a big name I call him (Rambo) by bullying dogs bigger than himself.
    right now, he's my best asset.
