CT. Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, along with other states, is joining a coalition to invoke state’s rights on restricting access to violent video games to minors. Blumenthal is asking the industry to self-police itself as Connecticut has no such law as of now. He compares it to the motion picture industry not allowing minors to see “R”…Details
I was turned against federalism by two things. First, when I’d walk up to get my first-grader after school in the neighborhood of Duke University in Durham, N.C., I had to keep my hand on my 3-year-old, to keep the students from touching her. They were not bad kids, but they were nervous and erratic because their mothers were addicted to heroin when they were born. The second was the president. Although I had voted for him twice, it appeared to be a mother/child relationship he had with Hillary. Lots of men — especially artists and musicians — have that because it works for them. But when it became approved by a good majority it seemed we had gotten to the end of the difficult work we started back in 1776.
The first was failure on a catastrophic scale. The nervous students had no chance. No doubt many of them are dead already. Except for my kids and maybe three others, the students were all black. The white liberals in the neighborhood, most of whom worked or taught at Duke, would try to get their kids in the “AG” classes in the public school, which contained only two or three students. If they didn’t get in, they’d send them to private schools.Details
The Supreme Court recently ruled that the Second Amendment applies to all states throwing the Chicago gun control ruling back to the Appeals court. See the story here.
If you are an avid believer in the right to bear arms and a gun owner, as I am, you might think this is a brilliant ruling. But on closer examination, it surely is not. Why? The Supremes used the ill conceived Incorporation Doctrine.Details
Well, “proof” is defined by perspective, right? All the proof I need on this one is just one man’s name.
Jack is a “leading constitutional scholar” from Yale. What does that mean? He advocates the living constitution. You know the one – the kind of constitution that morphs and changes based on the whims of politicians, judges, and Jack himself.
I consider him one of the worst of the worst in this field. And, what did he have to say about the DOMA case?Details
One of my highly-esteemed colleagues, Wilton Strickland, who is an author, columnist, attorney in Florida and Montana, magna cum laude graduate of the college of William and Mary law school and a fond friend of liberty accurately described a major problem in America relative to restoring freedom in the States in his recently-released article entitled, Staying Away…Details
From the Heritage foundation, via the WSJ: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act represents more than a federal takeover of health care; it is a direct threat to federalism itself. Never before has Congress exercised its power under Article I, Section 8 of the Federal Constitution to force American citizens to purchase a pri…Details
Former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz remarks at the launch of the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Center for Tenth Amendment Studies.
“There are some things the federal government should do here in Washington…but there are a lot of things that state and local governments and the people can do for themselves. We want to make sure that we empower people so that takes place.”
