Fortunately We the People have the final vote on what is constitutional or not, same as we did in Dred Scott and Plessy v Ferguson.
Our immediate problem is over coming the effects of the Age of Ignorance which begin with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 brought on by the compulsory education law that exists in every state of the union. That single law is being used to control local public education with federal funds and associated tests to verify meeting federal standards for accepting federal funds.
Today’s high schools students have difficulty adding 9 golf scores in their head to get a total. Test them for yourself and watch them start counting on their fingers.
Those state compulsory education laws and the National Education Association (NEA), the teacher’s union, the largest union in the United States protect teachers and administation while the level of public education plumetts.

Shortly after the end of Reconstruction after the Civil War several southern states, under Democrat political majorities, institued several ways to limit the vote of black American voters.
From early 1800s to the mid 1900s black Americans predominately voted for any political party except the Democrat political party because during that period the Democrat political party had, when in the majority, in congress and the Supreme Court pass legislation or favored laws that disadvantaged black Americans.
President Lydon Johnson (D) with a 99% record of voting against Cival Rights legislation created the Great Society in 1964 which included federal welfare. That fall’s presidential election was the first time black Americans voted in mass for a Democrat politician, LBJ received over 90% of the black American vote.
Passage of the Great Society’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act in 1965 ushered in the Age of Ignorance to the nation’s public school system and we have the declining test scores against international competition to prove it. We also have the high school graduates who can not do simple math or know American history to prove it.
I just witnessed high school students at a state golf tournament who could not sign their score cards, they could only print their name and had to use their fingers to add up the score, which had a 50/50 chance of being the wrong total.
The ancient battle for control of the public mind continues.
In 1965 the Age of Ignorance begin in the United States, a concerted effort to censor public education through control of funding via a central government agency authorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.. Soon public schools banned those time tested books on philosophies for living and governing that were critical to settling the New World and establishing the United States as a nation based on individual rights, a first in world history. The effect of banning books is much the same as when Hitler’s propagandist burned books, to abolish freedom of education.

When people follow a philosophy for living and governing religiously that life style practice is called their religion. The philosophy being religiously followed is still called a philosophy.
Over a period of several thousand years various authors wrote books about philosophies for living and governing. Centuries after the last book was written some scholars collected many of these books into a single book and like so many other authoritative collections of information this book became know as a bible on living and governing.
People who read this collection of books, known as a bible, begin to put the philososphies contained in this bible into their daily life because it helped them in ways they appreciated. Not everyone understood the information in the same way so groups of followers begin to unite regularly, religiously, and share their experiences.
Those followers became known as people of particular religions.
The bible from which each group drew their inspiration is still just a book on philosophies of living and governing.
Our places of education have banned this collection of time tested information from public education libraries in much the same way Hitler’s propagandist burned books to control what the public can learn.
Educated people will fight for individual freedom, the ignorant are easier to control.
Our Pilgrims came here for Freedom of Education. 1965 started the Age of Ignorance.

Going to school and getting an appropriate education are proving to be two different things.
Consider that four of the most prosperous cities in the United States were selected as Model Cities for centralized education in 1965 as part of LBJ’s Great Society. Today who would consider Detroit, Camden, Newark or Oakland centers of education?
The Great Society also addicted us to other utopia idea, federal welfare and Elementary and Secondary Education Act for funding of public schools. Welfare roles have grown. The level of public education has declined as the Age of Ignorance engulfs the nation.

My cousin bragged that he earned an average of 5% anually since 1960 on his savings. He can buy less with that money today than in 1960. He lost buying power by saving his money.
The Federal Reserve is the 4th time central banking has failed in the history of the United States. So far central banking has never succeed in the United States or anywhere else in the world.

Trumps’ consistent. He lashes at anyone who criticizes him. Usually including some remark about lack of intelligence of those who criticize him, Implying he has the supreme intelligence to judge others.

Never allow a crisis go to waste, right Carson?
Pandering for votes has never looked so ugly….”
Since you are a socialist, who told you you could say what you did? Someone runs the government and its not you, Government controls your life, not you. So who authorized you to say think what you thought and say what you said because if your are a socialist it was not you. Might of been your neighbor but it was not you.

I grew up making electronic devices and designed computers in my adult life.
Mike seems naive, the purpose of the electronic device is not to explode, the purpose of the electronic device is to control current (electricity) to a wire. That wire is used to send current to an explosive and cause it to detonate.
Light switches in our homes control current as does the computer your using to view this message and the cell phone you see being used every day. Our world is filled with electronic devices that can control current to a wire.
Each of those devices, when in the control of someone who intends to do harm, can result in someone being fatally injured just as when bullets are released from a gun.
His daughter Ivanka already handles a lot of the family business. She is extremely intelligent & capable like dear ole dad.
Hell, I'd vote for Ivanka for President. She is more qualified than 99.5% of the duds in DC.

“The man also that lieth with the male, as one lieth with a woman, they have both committed abomination: they shall die the death, their blood shall be upon them,” ~ Leviticus 20:13 Geneva Bible 1599
The phrase “shall die the death” is scattered across the Old Testiment.

What behavior will you get more of when that behavior is taxes more?
 September 28, 2015 at 8:53am
When one person decides who pays enough taxes and who doesn’t is that a good situation?
In the unammended Constitution the majority of people in the majority of states said taxes are applied equally. Simple system with no political favors to sell. Repeal the 16th amendment and we will automatically get flat tax.
When someone says we will tax so and so too much, the response is spend less until so and so feels good again.

Name one single candidate who ever won an election by telling people what they didn’t want to hear?
Most candidates say things people don’t want to hear and those people tend to vote for someone else.

Carly’s is easily defending her comments compared to Obama’s not a speck of corruption in the IRS comment or the succession of Hillary’s email server comments or Trump’s comments on the looks of women.
Nice thing about a moral compass that points true north.

The list of people not up to snuff according to Donald Trump grows to include some many of us might agree with.
Most of us are not on that list. Getting on the list seems a simple process, criticize Trump and your fortunes may change.
Isn’t this a familiar pattern with many politicians?
How to help veterens has been a source of corruption since the Revolutionary War. The consistent solution is to have congress pass legislation to finance help. Then create an office to manage the spending.
Next come the buildings and lobbyists for the builders and lobbyists for the government employees occupying the building. The problem is solved, the government agency heads have funding, buildings and employees and an infinite customer base.
Just as after the Revolutionary War and every war since helping veterans is a cash cow for the corrupt.
Just have VA mainly setup for incoming veterinarians needing help. And have the facilitates in selected areas. And they can just use the installations areas. And thin just issue a medical type card for them to go to the private sector. Pick who is best for them.
Because you don't see the real deep problem of being limited where you can even live. Based on their locations. Even though there is more than 30 years ago. The majority of the locations are nothing more than glorified clinics. And the bureaucracy has always been worse than the private sector. It is like playing a crap game every time you go their. Heck even most of the admin doesn't know what is going on. Because of so many rules that change ever day.
Besides. it doesn't make since to have the Tricare, the VA, the Healthcare law, medicare, medicaid, and so on. Just stupid. They just keep creating more and more things that overlap. And one covers one thing. While another doesn't. Like Medicare will cover procedures VA will not. Or will allow a procedure, while the other doesn't. Just stupid.
But it isn't about doing the smartest thing. It is about keep peoples power and jobs in place.

Seems to be an example of how propaganda works. Present some loosely associated information with a good story.
Isn’t this why Thomas Jefferson thought a well educated with high moral standards are the minimum needed for having freedom?

Stand for something or fall for anything.
In lieu of the less principled stance of being against it before being for it.
