I was having a discussion in one of the groups today, and the question of the First Amendment came up. This was after we were talking about how SCOTUS created an unconstitutional law. I was asked how can Scotus create a law. I answered back by ruling on a subject that there are no real current laws on. He asked me how that can be. I brought up the religious freedom stuff. And that by making the ruling they did, they created a precedent that other courts have to follow.
He asked me for specifics, so I gave him the 1948 case of McCollum versus board of ed. and then I explained on how three more cases were based on McCollum. I explained to him, in my opinion, Scotus had overextended the First Amendment and created a law that wasn’t there. The First Amendment is very clear in its language it specifies exactly who it’s talking about. It says Congress shall not, not to state, not the people. I also brought up how the 10th amendment gives the power to the states and the people for anything that is not in the Constitution. There was the usual back-and-forth of very serious discussion, and thankfully none of the two-year-old acting out stuff.
I don’t think he got it, but, that’s okay. It will give him something to think about later.
What about you, what do you think about how the Supreme Court created a law that wasn’t even there, unconstitutionally? This is a serious question and would appreciate serious responses. Thank you.
so, I have been reading a lot of posts from a lot of people responding to my posts and others. I have noticed something. It’s a little something, but something that irks my craw. It seems like the left finds it perfectly ok to break any and all laws and rules, just so long as they can say it’s “for the good of the people”. Isn’t that lovely.
Yup, that’s right, they don’t care about the law. It’s ok If I break in to your store to feed my family. It’s ok to tell a state secret if it shows that you are going against my views. This is the thinking of the left. Lawlessness as long as it benefits them. This saddens me that in this day and age we can have adults displaying this attitude that is seen by our youth and emulated. Where did we go wrong? Was it the participation trophies? I wish I knew. But it is obvious that we can not let it go on. but how to stop it before our society and country goes to hell?
This post is marked group confidential. Do not discuss or release any information in it.
The sky is blue. A fun way to think about this.
Here in a fun way I am going to show you just how bad a confidentiality agreement is. This is just a way to think about things that seems far-fetched, but is the way it is done.
Suppose I get a security clearance, I am shown a confidential memo that says the sky is blue. Now it is in normal conversation somebody asked me what color is the sky, I cannot say that the sky is blue. Why? Well that would be revealing information I got from a confidential document. Now how could you say that it was from the confidential document or could not be from confidential document? That is the question. Now, where it may be common knowledge that the sky is blue. I cannot say that the sky is blue because I am under a confidentiality agreement to not reveal any information I have received from the confidential documents. Sounds silly doesn’t it? But that is what we are left with when we sign or agree to a confidential agreement. So since I have marked this post group confidential, you are not ever able to say that the sky is blue again.
Does this have any national secrets in it? There is no way for you to know. It could be a password it could be a pass phrase, It could be anything. You have no way of knowing why it has been marked confidential. All you can know is it is confidential and you are supposed to respect that the originator has reason for the confidentiality.
Have fun and as always have a great day. PS the sky is gray. LOL.
I want to congratulate Mr Booker, really I do. He is a magician. He has mostly been able to use slight of hand to mostly confuse and redirect the majority of people. You see, He was able to make a grandstand play with that whole sparticus stuff. That threw everyone off of the real facts. Well I did say mostly. there were a few of us that were watching the right hand while the left hand was distracting everyone else. You may be interested in what the right hand was actually doing.
The issue is not the data dump on thurs. that was declassified on thursday at 3 am by Mr Lee’s staff. The issue is ,while questioning the judge on weds. night he read into the public record in open hearing a document marked classified. He was warned about it. for those that want proof I offer this video and the following time marks –
Booker starts at about 10:56, at about 11:02 he reads the classified document, at about 11:18 Senator Lee tells us that that doc was classified.
So to you Mr Booker, I say great performance, but like on the Penn and Teller show, sorry you did not fool us. And for that reason I am calling for your ouster from the senate. You see, we can not afford to have a man that would release trusted information to our enemies. And that sir is exactly what you have shown us you would do. If you have any semblance of honor you would resign right now.
I was watching the news again, (boring), and saw a piece about how Los Angeles is now deploying full body scanners. This bothers me. (not that I will ever be in California). The fact that they are now able to do a search without permission going against our Constitutional rights and get away with it?
4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
How are we allowing a non invasive search with out a warrant? I realize this is in Ca. and they want socialism and damned the constitution, but, this could go other places. Ever since 9/11 and before, we have been complacent and allowed for the slow erosion of our rights under the guise of security.
As any lawsuit that I might bring from my home state will be thrown out for reasons that I don’t live in the state, I am asking somebody in that state that is of thoughtful mind to file suit against this violation of our ConstitutionalRights before it can spread.
What is next? A microphone hooked up to a computer in all public places to gather our private conversations? (who needs a warrant for a cell phone tap, just turn on the mic and listen in?) and then charge us with some inane crime just for saying something that was just a thought and never an action?
hmmm, how fair is this? the NM muslim that was training kids to shoot up schools, that had at least 1 childs body found on the compound, has been released on 20k$ bail. all the while a guy that left a dog to drown gets no bail and has to remain locked up until his trial.
To the leaders of the Church. I ask has the church abandoned God?
I ask this based on recent letters from the heads of the various churches. In their letters they have left us to believe that God has been declared imperfect, and that the teachings of the Bible are false. In the quest to keep the church afloat they have become more interested in the almighty dollar than in the souls of their parish. Yes we want those with sin,(which is all of us) to come to the word of God. It is up to all of us to take in the sinner and show them the way to the Light. But the church is now saying that we should just accept the ways of the sinner and allow for them not to change.
In this world of the politically correct, the Church has given in, instead of being the sturdy foundation. Please remember the tale of the 3 houses and how the house built of stone withstood all. I fear that this version of the Church has been built of straw.
(one who feels that I have not left the Church , but the Church has left me)
Words taken directly from My “great” governor here in NJ on his gun control stance.
“Murphy said of the 485 gun deaths in New Jersey in 2016, 80 percent of those involved a gun that came from out of state.”
Is he actually saying that 80% or approx. 400 gun deaths were due to unlawful weapons? And this is the reason that those of us that are legal gun owners need even more restrictive gun controls? And that will stop the criminals from shooting people? That will stop the trunk loads of unlawful weapons from coming into NJ? REALLY????????????
I think it is time for the gun lobby to do what the left just loves to do, file suit on NJ for disobeying the constitution. Mr Murphy you are going down a path that will lead to your impeachment for failure to follow your oath of office.
I have been seeing a lot of post about ABC’s reboot of Rosanne. I did watch the 1st 2 shows the other day and was disappointed. I came away with the view that it was a veiled attempt by the left to make the right think it was a show for them. This could not be further from the truth.
As I watched I saw all sorts of progressive agendas being pushed. you see a 9 year old cross dressing, a mixed marriage. 2 divorced women, Darleene lost her job (supposedly due to ?Trump?) and moving back in. All the while the “conservative” parents, .Dan and Roseanne, being given no choice but to live with it in their own home.
Though Roseanne does seem to make fun of the left leaning agenda, she still has to acquiesce to everyone else’s wishes. This appears to be a “we are the left and we are here to make a change and there is nothing you can do about it” style show. There are a lot of other symbols of this agenda pervasive thru out the show that are way too numerous to mention. The question most seem to be asking, will you watch ? I can only answer, NO!
This show is on the level of the indoctrination that we received from shows like the west wing and the secretary, that attempt to push the lefts agenda. In the case of the west wing it was to get a dem elected, in the case of the secretary it was to get Hillary elected. All feel good shows that try to program the public to do what the left want’s.
A little further note. the show also made gun owners to be irresponsible people. In it, Dan says he should go find his gun because he forgot where he hid it. next scene it has him finding it in the freezer in a empty tub of ice cream. Never mind the fact that all the gun owners I know of would have put it in a gun safe or lock box. just one more of the digs they made.
The 2nd amendment was not meant for hunters, it had 3 purposes.
#1 to protect your family from attack
#2 to Protect your state from external attack
#3 to protect your state from internal attack
that’s it, plain and simple. now to protect yourself and your sate you require weaponry at least equal to the attacker. No owning an AR-15 is not usually for hunting, it is for the 3 reasons above. You have to remember, when the state takes great pains to take away your right to defend yourself, the state will eventually become a police state.
The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
This gun grab goes on every time some sick individual goes off the reservation. The Dems had their time that they could have enacted all kinds of gun control laws and they didn’t. Now if there is something that is common sense, that would actually do something, that is already not in the laws, I am all ears. Banning and denying are not the answer right now. If they make a law in haste that is based on the moment we are all sure to be worse off then if nothing was done. Sit, think , pray, discuss, and then make sure it is right and not against the constitution, and you may get it right.
a Post script:based on some chat:
Did you know that the state raising the age for gun ownership is against federal law? There is a federal law that says that all forms of the militia are all males aged 17-45. now does this just mean the states militia? nope. it includes all males. its 10 usc 246. now why would they make a law like that? so that you could be called to defend your state from any invasion, both foreign and domestic. they didnt want to take people from their jobs for the militia so there is what is called the unorganized militia. and they also define the national guard as a seperate entity. This made sure that the state would have people with guns available on a moments notice.
