Because academics have a certain protected viewpoint – they have a role to play in ideological subversion of the nation, and in flattering those who call themselves learned and wise, into accepting intellectualism as the end all be all – even if self criticism is not to be exercised at any price.

First of all, gridlock is not necessarily a bad thing. Second of all, the states are the buffer between the FEDS and the people. That’s what being a republic is all about.
The logic is strong, and it is true. It would make a GREAT difference if Senators were beholden and accountable to the state legislatures, like they are supposed to be, as opposed to being bought by whomever paid their campaign expenses, INCLUDING out of state interests who fund a lot of senatorial campaigns. The parties have a lot of fun sending money to buy Senators who vote the way the parties want as opposed to the way the people of the states want. So, yeah, it would make a HUGE difference.

All of these comments are good and correct. It is encouraging to see the knowledge spread. I would only add that another item of great importance is that the Supreme Court is not superior to the other branches, and is not the sole interpreter of the Constitution. What a ridiculous idea.
We the people are one side of the contract, the other side being the Federal Government, comprised of the three co-equal branches of government, the President, the Congress, and the Supreme Court, each with a differing role to play, and balancing the power amongst themselves. Marbury v Madison is John Marshall’s personal gift to the progressive movement and should be reconsidered. The people are just as powerful as the FEDS, the power derives from us, and it is not the prerogative of the Supremes, to legislate from the bench and it is not the prerogative of the FEDS in toto to dictate law to us. True government governs BY CONSENT of the governed. It is definitely out of line for one party of the contract to usurp the power given to it, and dictate terms of the contract to the other party.
They serve US, not the other way around. The exist because WE created them. They didn’t create us. Time for the people with the real power to tell the people with the delegated power what they may and may not do.
And if you abolished the 17th Amendment you would gain that power over the supreme court back. Convention of States is our only hope at this point.

Well, I’m glad you like wasting our money and blood in endless wars (on terror, and drugs) , as much as the left likes wasting our money on endless bailouts and welfare.
Tweedledum and Tweedledummer – what a pair!

When are we gonna wake up and realize our parties have been infiltrated, not just political parties, but Hollywood, the schools, the Boy Scouts, the press, the military, the DOJ, the FHA, the EPA, the FDA in short, the international socialists have sown seeds to begin the takeover a long while back and it’s becoming more and more apparent they are not interested in the Constitution but only interested in establishing power and authority over the rest of us.
We are free to trade with whomever we wish. We the people are the masters, our representatives are the servants, and not vice versa.
The bailouts of banks that are too big to fail is simply fascism with a socialist schmear. They should have failed. The bailouts of Chrysler, the TOXIC ASSET RELIEF PROGRAM, all the other **** they use taxpayer money to pay for, is simple theft. They have broken their oath to protect the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. They are the domestic enemy.

Why do we suffer fools?
“He was convicted of kidnapping and sexual battery in Tennessee in 1992 after the woman he was dating broke things off; he was released from prison in 1995.
A year later court records show he kidnapped, raped and held a knife to the throat of his estranged wife after locking their 8-year-old daughter in a closet”
Should have been executed long ago. A life for a life. This is what liberal judges have done to our country.

That happened to me – I rented out my home since I took a job across the country. The guy paid one months rent and then nothing. I was told I couldn’t evict him for 3 months. On the day we served him the papers, he filed bankruptcy. Got another 3 months. I was paying the mortgage and rent in my new place.
When he finally left, I discovered he had deliberately smeared oil and grease on the garage walls, mustard and ketchup on the kitchen walls, left expensive cuts of meat to rot in the refrigerator, had locked cats up in one of the rooms so they could defecate all over it.
It was a horrendous experience, and he was a serial squatter too. He withdrew the bankruptcy after 5 months before it was confirmed.
He took advantage of every law that we (the socialist states of America) had devised out of our “compassion” and “enlightenment”.
Cost me thousands and stole my children’s future. Nearly caused me to bankrupt myself. Those were very dark days.
OUTLAW: I was lucky. I dodged all that. Fortunately I had a background in city code inspections and saw first hand how squatters and assorted other bums live and how it affected the owners. I’ve seen so much I could write a hundred books on it. How about renters who open a big jar of Ragu sauce and pour half on the floor? When the roaches come after it, the renters call the city to complain that the landlord isn’t taking care of the property.
You notice TPTB are in FULL PANIC after Hersh's bombshell that the whole raid was bogus? So now they have to remake and Re vilify everybody involved to keep the Goofy Evangelical / Fox news watching twits inline with their propaganda. So transparent ..its laughable...

What a bunch of BS. They didn’t kill bin Laden, and he didn’t evade the worlds best and brightest intelligence agencies for a decade. This article is a LIE.
Osama & Obama have such similar face structure is what has always struck me as odd. Like the same type of genetics or something really weird.
Please tell me this is sarcasm.
May 21, 2015 at 12:25am
No, but because we’ve been bad guys means we should reflect on the damage we have done and not repeat the same foolhardy pyrrhic victories that grow government at the expense of our own freedom.

No, I am not a poor student of history. And no, I am not a liberal in any way shape or form. And no, I didn’t forget “why” we put those sanctions in the first place. I know exactly why we did it. We did it because we don’t understand the constitutional limits on the federal government, which has NO power in any form to sanction any other nation for anything.
Sorry, but I have to wonder from whom you inherited any conservative credentials. You are as big government as any leftist.
And your idea of justice is to punish and blockade a sovereign foreign nation – where do you get the right to do that? Jefferson and Madison would kick you out of the conservative club fast than you can say, “NEO-CON”.
 May 21, 2015 at 12:19am
Actually, the only thing our legislators should do, rather than creating more and more laws, is actually repeal some. And then safeguard the Constitution. It’s plain our judges won’t. It’s plain our Presidents won’t.
Our Congress must step up to the plate and reassert the Constitution.

Wicked doctrine. What shall they do then, that are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? Why are they then baptized for the dead?

Yep, that’s the sleight of hand government keeps practicing. Raise the wage and dilute the money. Appearances are deceiving. We make more money but we can’t buy anything with it.
Central bankers though, make out like bandits.
 May 19, 2015 at 6:32pm
The reason those Angelenos live in poverty is because the central planners have forced all the employers to go elsewhere. Hello, COOPERATION is the exact opposite of COMPULSION. Why do employers not COOPERATE? Because no one is COOPERATING with them.
Totalitarians think they can snap their fingers and the reality changes. They are CLUELESS when it comes to job creation. They think that they can take take take but the way to wealth is to make make make.
 May 19, 2015 at 6:27pm
The result of a centrally planned economy. That’s where we are heading too. When they can force you to buy “insurance” and call it “health care” then the great doublespeak of government has become doubleplusungood.
Think that’s something, here in California they’re trying to pass laws requiring liability insurance for gun owners.

“When you look the wide body of animals that exist in Earth’s biosphere over time, there is a definite pattern of moving from simple life forms ”
An imaginary pattern, at that. Not a single biologist has shown that any species can transform to any other species over ANY length of time. It’s all hypothetical, and unproven. Wishful thinking isn’t science, and consensus isn’t science either. PEER REVIEW is just another form of PEER PRESSURE. Real scientists want PROOF not OPINION.

Many biological systems must come as a full package, there can be no viable half formed thyroid.
I have no problem with them proposing theories, its when they claim that theories are factual that they go off the deep end. They haven’t done the deep work necessary to prove their hypotheses are viable or historically accurate, and not a one of them can tell us the developmental pathway of any life form, and as mathematician Dembski has shown, the Kosmos is too young to have evolved the simplest parasite. But good luck getting the truth to them. They are using their pseudoscience as a club to browbeat you because it bolsters their insecurity.
