Statism

He’s either a Schmuck or is now desperately trying to not to end up like Wily E. Coyote

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof… BLAM!  Here’s what Obama said in a proclamation concerning the National Day of Prayer: “All of us have the freedom to pray and exercise our faiths openly,” Obama said. “Our laws protect these God-given liberties, and rightly so. Today …

The lies at the heart of Leftism….

The political Left—founded as it is upon statism—is based upon so many falsehoods…. It promises peace, but brings conflict and war. It promises safety and security, but brings unease, fear, and danger. It promises plenty, but brings poverty, scarcity, and want.

An Essay: What is “Constitutional”? Who decides?

Yesterday I cited an 1886 Supreme Court decision that ruled that unconstitutional actions or statutes are…inoperative, and of no effect (see it HERE). My long-time buddy and fellow lawyer—I’ll call him Larry—sent me a friendly warning about that post, as follows:
