Hello world!

Many people have asked me to create a blog. I don’t know why, so I’ve always said no.  It’s not as if I have anything interesting to say.  My passion is the U.S. Constitution and apparently no one cares about that anymore, so I’d expect to have no readers.  I suppose if anything strikes me as something that needs to be said, I’ll write it down and see where it goes from there.

  1. The 14th Amendment is probably the most misinterpreted part of the Constitution. It’s a mess. I have always advocated for its repeal. I would probably go as far as to put it at the top of the list of amendments I would repeal, and there are several.

  2. The very first of the “non-law” gun laws was the nose of the camel. ANY law affecting the 2nd is an INFRINGEMENT. “We the people” have stood by and allowed this to happen.

    Don’t mean to “sound southern” but “the cry for restoring the Union as it was, under the Constitution as it is” never happened. As a matter of fact, that very statement got you jailed and “exiled” in 1863.

    Clement Laird Vallandigham was an Ohio politician, and leader of the Copperhead faction of anti-war Democrats during the American Civil War. He served two terms in the United States House of Representatives. He was tried by a military court on May 6 and 7. Vallandigham’s speech at Mount Vernon, Ohio was cited as the source of the arrest. He was charged by the Military Commission with “Publicly expressing, in violation of General Orders No. 38, from Head-quarters Department of the Ohio, sympathy for those in arms against the Government of the United States, and declaring disloyal sentiments and opinions, with the object and purpose of weakening the power of the Government in its efforts to suppress an unlawful rebellion.”

    This didn’t just start under the current dictator. Once the “bayonet amendments” were ratified (?) all bets were off. Lincoln proved to the world that “Yankees” will stand for anything as long as it ain’t happen’ to them. And ……. now it is!

    But the 14th Amendment was necessary you say? Where on earth would Justice Kennedy , et al, have found all those “new modern rights” See Lawrence v. Texas 539 U.S. 558 (2003). Due process and all that, with full “recognition and endorsement of the “gubmint”. Of course monetary benefits up the gazoo!

    The Supreme Court has become the “Court of Public Opinion” Oh, the humanity!
