We are seeing in eleven days (its midnight of day 11) a string of events by one President that will have far reaching effects. Yet one common element in the eleven days so far is how scattershot it is. ACA Executive Order one day, Reproductive Rights another, politicizing National Security another, the WALL another day, Muslim ban other. Later this week it will be on LGBT rights. All Executive Orders.
