I believe we are on the same page. You are correct and we need pay attention to these important details. When speaking to friends and family about these matters clarity will make all the difference.

Sir, I believe you are right. Sad but true.

There are two ways two propose amendments to the constitution. They can come from congress or from the states. Either way they must still be ratified through the same process. If you think Washington will propose amendments which limit their own power you are seriously misguided. It is about time the states rise up and reclaim some of the power they lost with the 17th amendment.
And under Article V, Congress can change the mode of ratification. And will our out-of-control Congress, and Supreme Court enforce these new amendments?

Damage control could be the reason for his actions. However, knowing Chris Matthews, I am more likely to deduce that he fell in the shower and received a head injury.

If Barry is guilty of high crimes and/or misdemeanors, surely Joe is as well. When Barry is removed from office, Joe should leave simultaneously. When the President and Vice President are no longer qualified to hold office, who takes their place? Remind me of the order of succession. How does that work again? Who is third in line? Hmmmmm?

Wildlife officials propose killing barred owls, which are taking territory from spotted owls.
Northern spotted owls earned a place on the endangered species list due to habitat loss from logging and fire, but their biggest nemesis now is an East Coast cousin.
Larger, more aggressive, more adaptable barred owls moved West in the 1960s, found food and shelter to their liking and have since displaced spotted owls throughout much of British Columbia to Northern California. Spotted owls declined 40 percent over the past 25 years, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says they may go extinct in some parts of their range if something isn’t done about barred owls.
So it means to kill them. Perhaps hundreds of barred owls will be shot — “removed” is the gentler agency word for it — during a 3- to 10-year experiment in tightly defined areas of Northwest forests. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar said the government “can’t ignore the mounting evidence that competition from barred owls is a major factor in the spotted owl’s decline.”
The fate of spotted owls has been at the heart of the “timber wars” since they were listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act in 1990. Killing one species to benefit another, however, is a drastic action that troubles scientists and activists on either side.
A draft environmental impact statement to be released soon includes options for capturing barred owls instead of killing them.

Another example of negative consequence resulting from a decision based not on True Reality. This is pervasive in our society today and the root of our problems. Can you say Metaphysical Justice?
the man is guilty.... he should just be TORTURED, and EXECUTED... he deserves no more than that... WE SHOULD HIRE THE BEST TORTURES WE CAN FIND FROM N KOREA AND SYRIA, and USE THEIR SKILLS TO MAKE THE LAST TWO WEEKS OF THIS MANS LIFE A LIVING HELL..

We need a NEW COMPROMISE. One that REDUCES the size of government. It is time we only pass or sign legislation that accomplishes this. Stand up and defend a new direction!
