    I know I shouldn’t say anything about this but I just can’t help myself. I already debated this with Rebecca a couple of weeks ago so I’m starting to sound like a broken record.

    I’m nit-picking what I feel is nit-picking on your part so I don’t think I’m on higher moral ground here.
    >
    Just to be clear I’m not saying the writers are competent or that they checked their facts properly. I’m not even saying that they are well versed in how the United States government works.
    >
    All I am saying is that writers who are currently writing the show think the Alien Amnesty Act is a Congressional Act.
    >
    Rebecca, you and I disagreed about whether or not it could have become one in the two years since “Welcome to Earth”.
    >
    I’m not even trying to make that point this time. All I am arguing is that either the current writers of this season weren’t the ones who wrote “Welcome to Earth” and they didn’t check their facts properly. Or if they were involved with that episode it’s so long since then that they’ve forgotten it was an Executive Order.
    >
    Simply put the writers think the Alien Amnesty Act is a Congressional Act whether or not it is and are writing the show as if it is a Congressional Act. They even had Kara call it a Congressional Act a few episodes back.
    >
    So Rebecca whilst I agree that the writers of the show are incompetent in this instance and may very well not have the best handle on the inner workings of the US Government I don’t think this is a good example of that.
    >
    If the writers are writing this storyline as though the Alien Amnesty Act is a Congressional Act then I think they are depicting the process of repeal correctly as far as I understand it. You might be able to check me on that though Rebecca. I wasn’t sure if the Senate and the House of Representatives were both required to repeal an Act or not. Hence I wasn’t sure if Ben Lockwood courting a Senator’s vote was technically accurate.

    A minor point about the Metallo they fought. In the dialogue they talked about the technology being used to resurrect Otis and also mentioned that there had been several failed attempts prior to Otis. I think the Metallo they fought was one of those failures. More like a zombie than anything – only half alive. They didn’t say but it’s possible Mercy was one of those failures. If you go by Batman v Superman Lex considers Mercy pretty disposable anyway.

  2. Hi, Sam!

    You wouldn’t just be disagreeing with ME. You’d be disagreeing with two attorneys who have studied Constitutional Law, who have argued that the show has gotten the Alien Amnesty Act business all wrong. If you don’t trust me, trust them.

    There are only two explanations to what has happened. Either 1) they don’t remember that the Alien Amnesty Act was described as an Executive Order or 2) they have no idea how the U.S. government actually works. I think it’s probably both, to be honest.

    You’re probably right about the Metallo experiment gone wrong.

    Lex usually does consider Mercy disposable. He has a long history of killing any given Mercy in a story. It just sucks that we lost the one on Supergirl because she was deliciously evil.

    Hi, Rebecca.
    I don’t think I’ve ever disagreed with your or the two attorneys who wrote into the show about the legal aspect of how to undo an Executive Order. I understand that an Executive Order is not something that is repealed by Congress but rather can be overridden by a new Executive Order.
    >
    I just think the writers forgot that the Alien Amnesty Act was an Executive Order and are treating it as a Congressional Act this season. In the episode “Stand and Deliver” Kara said “tell me Ben Lockwood cannot repeal a Congressional Act” in response to Ben Lockwood’s press conference announcing the repeal process. As far as I’m concerned that is proof that the writers have forgotten it was an Executive Order in season two.
    >
    I feel that criticizing the writers for not knowing how an Executive Order is undone is beside the point if they think that the Alien Amnesty Act is a Congressional Act.
    >
    I think the writers have made a mistake just not the one you believe they have.
    >
    You’re probably right in your belief that the writers don’t have the best handle on how the U.S. government actually works. I’m just not sure the shows depiction of the repeal of the Alien Amnesty Act is the best example of that.
    >
    Let me just ask you this as a hypothetical question. If the Alien Amnesty Act was a Congressional Act was what we were shown of the repeal process in the last few episodes technically correct? Obviously it was not correct if the Act was an Executive Order. However if the Act was a Congressional one did the writers correctly depict the process?
