CHARLESTON, W.V. – March 8, 2014.The West Virginia Senate backed down on a bill that would legalize hemp production in the state, instead passing an amended version of the bill allowing only research as permitted by the federal government
“Gold and silver coins issued by the United States government are legal tender in the State of Oklahoma. No person may compel another person to tender or accept gold or silver coins that are issued by the United States government, except as agreed upon by contract.”
Communist theorist Leon Trotsky once said, “The end may justify the means as long as there is something that justifies the end.”
Increasingly, policy in the United States seems to reflect Trotsky’s philosophy, especially when it comes to the Tenth Amendment. Politicians of all stripes seem ever more willing to toss states’ sovereignty aside and trample on the Tenth Amendment for some purported greater good.
Two bills that would nullify the controversial Common Core educational standards have been introduced in the Louisiana State House of Representatives.
HB556 and HB557 would stop all state involvement with Common Core. The bills were introduced on Feb. 27 by Reps. Cameron Henry (R-82) and Jerome Richard (I-55). They were promptly moved to the Education Committee where they will need to pass through a majority before they can be voted upon by the whole house.
