One, two, three,
One, two, three

STOP! STOP! STOP!

Barrack, I swear…  You must have two left feet.

Don’t snicker George, if Barrack has two left feet, you surely must have two right ones.

Again…  From the top…

The Constitutional Three Step…

One, two, three
One, two, three
One, two, three

STOP!  STOP! STOP!

I see with the dunderheads in this class, I will AGAIN have to explain these steps.  Now, Tom and James were such excellent dancers.  Will I ever have students like them again?

The State of Holland?

cross-posted from the Texas Tenth Amendment Center

In 1648, the Dutch earned their freedom from Spain. The amazing thing is that later this tiny country evolved into a major commercial empire. One reason, the Netherlands had for its time a lot of economic freedoms.

One example, the Dutch respected Freedom of Speech and allowed foreigners to come into their country to print books which were banned across Europe in order to keep them in circulation.

Much of that same spirit survives today with their lax rules on issues like drugs and prostitution. However, their membership with the European Union is restricting their freedoms. The EU and other nations are pressuring the Netherlands not to provide these goods and services to foreign guests visiting their country

We are often told while visiting a foreign nation, we should respect their laws and customs. I will never suggest to an individual while traveling to the Netherlands that they should do drugs or pay a prostitute for his/her services.

However, I do wonder where the United States has the authority to tell me that I can’t partake into these activities while legal there. Does a country have the authority to force their own laws on its citizens when they are not within their borders? The last time I checked, I don’t have a “Made In the USA” tattoo on my body
