News That Leaves Me Shaking My Head In Disbelief

Scouring the internet for news items I want to write about leaves this humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in thinking that universal suffrage was a very bad idea. I find myself fantasizing about what our country would be like if we had a minimum IQ require to vote and to hold public office. We wouldn’t want to put the bar too high. I’m thinking a minimum IQ of 80 or 85 would do. My guess is that , if we had such a requirement, the number of qualified voters in the country would go down […]

#TrestinsFast Update: SCOTUS Orders Gay Marriage to Stop Until Appeals Complete, FAST IS OVER!

“God did this.” Trestin Meacham January 6, 2014 #TrestinsFast for traditional marriage, a fast in order to raise awareness regarding a federal judge over-ruling Utah’s Constitution, will end today.  The Supreme Court has placed gay marriages on hold until a federal appeals court rules.  The Washington Times has more… The Supreme Court on Monday put same-sex marriages on hold in Utah, pending a ruling from an federal appeals court regarding a judge’s decision to gut the state’s ban on such unions. The Washington Times reported last month that a federal judge in Utah struck down a voter-passed ban on gay […]

Is Prop 8 Still The Law?

We all thought that Prop 8 went down in flames earlier this week.  however, some are questioning if the media has the story right.  Doug, of the Daily Gator, has this, via Breitbart… Proposition 8 is the amendment to the California Constitution that defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. A federal trial judge – Vaughn Walker – held that Prop 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court held that only the losing defendants in that case – the governor and attorney general of California–had standing to appeal that […]

Some Thoughts on the SCOTUS, DOMA and Prop 8

There are a lot of strong feelings out there today, as the SCOTUS has issued rulings on DOMA and California’s Prop 8.  Both deal with gay marriage, and there are a ton of upset SoCons out there.  The Cultural Marxists won another victory.  I don’t blame the SoCons, and I’m dismayed as well.  However, as a Christian, I know that this type of thing is going to happen.    The world is becoming more and more corrupt.  The Book predicts this, so while it is disappointing, it we’ve know about it for nearly 2000 years.  I trust God, and take him […]

The Dream Is Over: SCOTUS Says You’re No Longer Free

THESE 9 PEOPLE JUST TOLD YOU TO TAKE YOUR MEDICINE This is no longer America. You no longer have the opportunity for the American Dream. You, we, me — we’re all slaves now. The Supreme Court of the United States of America has just made it official. Congress has abandoned you. The executive branch has abandoned you.  SCOTUS has abandoned you. The lapdog media has abandoned you. I had hopes, coming into today, that SCOTUS would uphold the rule of law, that the President of the United States and his Congresscriminal henchmen (and women) would not be allowed to rule you like […]

Forced Union Membership Means Free Speech

OK kids, it’s time to put on your suspension of disbelief, and hold on to your chairs, because this is going to be one crazy ride.  It seems that a union is suing to overturn Indiana’s Right to Work Law.  Their reasoning is typical liberal, and therefore defies all logic.  Here is more from CNBC… INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana’s new right-to-work law should be struck down because it infringes upon unions’ free speech rights by depriving them of the dues that fund their political speech, attorneys for a union challenging the law contend, citing the U.S. Supreme Court’s so-called Citizens United […]

President Obama Darkly Threatens Supreme Court; Does His Behavior Fit Definition of Bullying?

President Obama is a bully. Bullying is a form of aggressive behavior manifested by the use of force or coercion to affect others, and this is exactly what President Obama is attempting to do with his latest speech in which he darkly threatened the Supreme Court regarding their impending decision regarding Obamacare, saying I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress. His behavior, as I have demonstrated on this blog repeatedly, is bullying, especially because it is habitual in nature (done many […]

SCOTUS Candidate Tells the Truth

The Libtards have had a problem lately.  They continue to be caught telling the truth!  Now, it’s not the “truth” that they want you to see and hear, but they won’t let a little thing  like reality interfere with CALLING IT SOMETHING ELSE! Next lucky contestant?  It’s none other than Sonia Sotomayor, the SCOTUS nominee from the messiah SPENDULUS MAXIMUS! The gentlemen at Verum Serum have again broke a big one! They posted this to Youtube on May 2nd! Yeah, I know.  There has been over 9000 bloggers that have run with this in the last two days.  It’s just […]

Constitution is Anything We SAY IT IS!

An alleged “finalist” for nomination to the SCOTUS is one Diane Wood, a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago (what  a coinkydink!).  As discussed here, she has some unusual, and consequently liberal, views on the Constitution. In a 2005 article she wrote for the New York University Law Review, Wood argued that the U.S. Constitution “survives” the test of time through the “evolving” interpretation of its text. “Over the long run, even though it can sometimes be frustrating to wait for the long run, it has been better to allow constitutional understandings to grow with the […]
