The unbrella of federal corruption …

August 2, 2010

If Obama’s DOJ prevails in the courts re Obamacare, THEN it will have succeeded in undermining the 10th Amendment irreparably.

If the courts determine the federal government has the constitutional authority to force the citizens of a given state to purchase a product from a private company, THEN it can force our people to buy anything that hypothetically, theoretically, actually, or virtually, crosses a state’s border. It might even, by fiat, “deem” it to have crossed such a line.

How you ask? By default. Following such a decision, name one product which that wouldn’t fall under that umbrella?

You might suggest a product produced exclusively within the borders of a given state. I would counter, only if 100% of the product is produced in the state, not 99 44/100%. If so much as a lubricant came from another state, Then it would fall in the shade. If the plastic wrap on the packaged good came from another state … bingo!

I would really be interested in hearing your thoughts on this one.


The rejected law that wasn’t really rejected …

It’s imperative that conservative patriots not lose heart over the setback re Arizona SB1070. Consider this fight for right as something akin to the making of a cake. It’s a process.

You don’t have a cake when you get the recipe out, you don’t have a cake when you gather all the ingredients, you don’t have a cake just because you mixed the ingredients and now have a batter in the cake tin, you don’t have a cake when you put it in the oven, nor do you don’t have a cake when you take it out of the oven.

You don’t have a cake until you’ve put it on a plate and served it up. In this case your guest has asked for an “iced” cake … when this puppy is finally iced by SCOTUS in the months to come, then you’ll have a cake.

Our hope is that the cake doesn’t fall on the way to the plate.

Don’t spin when you blow it …

Politics is no nap in the shade of a fig tree, those who enter the game should know the rules.

I appreciate candidate Buck’s frustration with those who can’t focus on the big picture [birthers] but there’s no excuse for spin when you blow it. Especially when your error has huge consequences.

Politicians and pundits need to understand – for many Americans the man in the White House is illegitimate … respect that fact and respect them as well.

The question for those of us who are rational, as opposed to emotional, it’s a question of Constitutional Law that needs to be resoved before it’s too late.

It may be too late already.

Cloaked liberal hypocrisy …

‎”For a liberal [country] fanatic about ‘diversity,’ how in the hell can they not see their hypocrisy in supporting three women from New York for the Supreme Court?”

Muddying the waters of liberty …

July 26, 2010

The Federalists were right when they tried to limit additions to our Constitution prior to its ratification; this was based on a fear the efforts of men to explain legally and exhaustively our birth-rights would simply muddy an already difficult apologetic.

Their reservations have proven to be spot on! Recent SCOTUS decisions only point out that as long as we allow politicians, lawyers and courts to tell us what God meant when He gave us our natural rights, we’ll continue to live in a legalistic and debilitating morass. Every case, brought before and decided by a court, only complicates our existence as a free people.

When man is involved he automatically (though mostly unwittingly) acts as a corrupting agent in his own world.
