It’s my understanding there was another “lost” amendment against “titles of nobility”.
As I recall, it was the original 14th amendment and it was intended to prevent foreign influence (particularly of the British Crown and Bank of England) and dual allegiances and applied mostly to those practicing law. It was passed just before the US Civil War and copies of the Constitution/BOR’s from that era include it – yet, it magically disappears from post Civil War copies.
The original 13th amendment, ratified in 1819 and officially recognized through 1876. The Titles of Nobility Amendment (TONA) barred anyone that accepted an emolument (direct payment from a foreign government ..... like donations to the Clinton Foundation ...... or investments in oil companies from the House of Bin Laden. ....... or an Oxford fellowship ....... It doesn't pick on lawyers unless they do international law.
The archival historic record shows the TONA as officially recognized as the 13th amendment through 1876.

Exactly. Were it to zip radically and rapidly from one location to another, well…. That’d be different.
But, hovering static in the air? Uh-uh. Not buying it!

The fact is, if .gov can get away with this crap, it can ban ANY .223/5.56 ammo because it will ALL pass through a level I vest if fired from a pistol – at least, I’d sure think it would.
Heck! A lowly .22 fired from a carbine will zip through a level I vest like it’s not even there! There can be no doubt this is a move to disarm law-abiding citizens. M855 is cheap – AND relatively inaccurate, too. But it’s inexpensive and abundant – and therein lies the “problem”. As for the effectiveness of M855 on flesh, it’s not even in the same league as JHP ammo, nor does it perform as well as FMJ. That’s why this must be stopped – IMMEDIATELY. If they get away with this, we’re screwed.
Can you help me out in terms of brand name...if m855 gets blocked what if anything would be left on store shelves?

Like so many others, this article is so poorly written that it’s neigh onto impossible to determine which “side” of the global warming argument this “Nobel Prize winning doctor” is on!
The headline assets one thing – the article, the opposite. WTH, Blaze? :-(

I checked out the link, but . . . no cedar?
I loved pulling stuff out of my grandmother’s old cedar trunk. The smell was terrific and it seemed impervious to bugs and mildew (and the like) too – although, it has been a long time, so I may be wrong about that last part! I DO know there was a reason beyond the smell that cedar was so popular, though.
Nonetheless, the trunks look awesome! Good for you! Best of luck in your new endeavor!

Where does the Blaze gets the people it calls “writers”? That’s what I’d like to know!
It’s even more baffling than the (apparent) fact that used cig filters can be singed into superconductors!
Grammatically, this story (like so many others) is practically incoherent. The Blaze editor(s) and staff should be shamed of themselves.
@Former11BRAVO....... From Mad Magazine, perhaps???
Uh, your right. Superconductor research currently does focus itself using ultra low temp of Liquid Helium for collider stuff.
Butt, Bravo do not lead the way. You are not supposed to question. Just use smartphone as you do, Continuing to reveal your locale....NSA Techs continue monitoring, relaxing sipping dew, with ready phone to RPV operator trailer nearby.

The NYT’s may be advocating legal MJ for reasons they share with lefties (using it as an intoxicant and the enormous tax-revenue to be collected from its sale).
However, there are more than enough legitimate, valuable, highly-productive/beneficial reasons for legalizing this remarkably useful and versatile plant. Sadly, the potential uses are so numerous there’s insufficient room here, in this forum, to even begin to list (let alone, explain) them. Nonetheless, they exist and it takes little more than a cursory internet search to find countless sources of valid information regarding industrial hemp use(s).
End prohibition? Yes. But, let’s end the ignorance too – and take advantage of a golden opportunity to revolutionize US industry and, thereby, revitalize our economy. If we don’t someone else will. Of that you can be sure!

Personally, I think it’s beautiful.
But, of course, I still look at Old Glory and see her for what she was – not the corrupt, welfare state she’s come to represent today.

The ONLY way there would have been a First Amendment violation (regarding this principle’s speech) would have been if he’d been prevented from giving it!
I swear, the lies never end!

The list is bogus.
Rob Halford (of Judas Priest) has an unbelievable range and makes Axle Rose look like a chump. And where’s Sebastian Bach?

I think I’d have to go with the biker dude.
He sounds like he’s actually done something worthwhile and, unlike any-other politician I’ve ever heard of, tells it like it is. That dooms him, of course. But, it sure would be refreshing to know there’s a straight-shooter running the show . . . somewhere. :-/

I’ll tell you straight, Glenn. As aggravating as your newfound pacifism has become, it pales next to your (and the majority of your members’) views on religion/matters of Faith. Yeah, I heard you deriding those of us who believe in the evolution of humanity, yesterday – and I’ve really just about had enough. Please, do yourself – and your loyal, long-time listeners – a favor and stick to American history and exposing the extreme danger represented by progressivism!
Seriously, pal. You’re becoming quite the bore and apparently believe you’ve Blaze subscribers to spare.
Trust me: you don’t.

It’s finally becoming accepted scientifically that a diet high in grains is detrimental to overall health. All the grains (and other high-carb foods) we consume are why we’re weaker, have more inflammation, auto-immune disorders and much, much smaller jaws than our forebears (we shouldn’t need to have our wisdom teeth removed – much less, other permanent teeth!). Evidence shows autism, Asperberger’s Syndrome and even Altzeimer’s may very well be related to the crap we put in our mouths too.
Everyone – and I do mean everyone – should check out the Paleo-Diet (aka: the caveman diet) to learn about proper human nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. It’s hardly PC (as it’s high in animal protein), but it’s based on how we lived and evolved and, therefore, lacks all the high-carb poison in the common, modern, western diet. Humans are primarily carnivores and until we go back to eating like our ancestors did, thousands of years ago, we’ll continue to degrade physically AND mentally.

Your stock photo shows .22 caliber ammo. The US military doesn’t use .22′s! No armed forces do!
Not only that, the rounds in the pic are bare lead! ALL military ammo is copper/copper-alloy-jacketed!

Care to expand on that?
Are you referring to the cameras//mics supposedly installed in flat-screens? Or, something else? Cuz those transmit over the power lines, not wireless, a I recall – although I might be FOS (mistaken)! :-O

That crap was federal blackmail – forcibly put in place (under threat) when Nevada solicited to become a state. It is, on its face – to anyone with even half a brain – utterly absurd that a state constitution would, so blatantly, abdicate its own authority to the federal government and consent to tyranny, under any/all circumstances!

Why is it almost never mentioned that TWO SCOTUS cases have determined that police are under NO OBLIGATION to protect ANYONE during an “emergency”? They have a mandate ONLY to protect “the public at large” – not individuals under imminent threat by other individuals!!!!
If cops show up in time and save you . . . great! Give ‘em a medal and buy ‘em a beer! But, understand they are NOT REQUIRED to do so. Only then will you understand the absolute importance of self-reliance and the critical, personal necessity of our 2A Rights (regarding self-defense).

Confederates AND Lincoln!
I’d sure like to know what’s REALLY going on here, too. Could he really be a faux patriot – more concerned with fortune than sacred honor?
April 16, 2014 at 10:22am
I wholeheartedly agree.
However, as of this moment, we haven’t had a Lexington/Concorde-type event (thank Heaven!). Should the BLM/federal law enforcement return to the Bundy’s and become violent (over a civil judgement – wholly unacceptable!), that may be the moment: the modern “shot heard ’round the world”.
Until then (or something similar), we must remain vigilant and hold fast. He who fires first, loses IMHO.

That’s from the Declaration, bro – not the constitution.
