    So the Farm Bill didn't pass the House. Does that mean Massie will get another chance in the near future for his Raw Milk amendment? What happens next with the Farm Bill?

    I always like watching for when the man who sets up the easel chuckles. If I had that job, I would be laughing a lot harder a lot more often. It's a shame, though, that these "conservatives" keep getting voted back into Congress. At least I can vote starting this September. (In case you were worried, I will not vote for phony big government sneaks)

    The PASPA Bill of 1992 in question is unconstitutional. Congress had no authority to my understanding to pass that bill (Article 1 Section 8 & Amendment 10). The bill technically didn't make sports gambling illegal, instead it terminated the initiation of sports gambling in 1993 and said that any violations of the bill could have a civil action suit filed against them to stop the violation. Fancy way of saying sports gambling started after 1993 is illegal. Interesting to note, PASPA violations rest on the axiom that any activity can be declared illegal (or whatever jargon they use to pretend it's not illegal), simply because a law is made declaring it so. Sports gambling doesn't violate anyone's liberties that I'm aware of, the government has no power to legislate it. (Compare to other illegal things like possession of marijuana, collecting rainwater, and selling things or partaking in recreational activities without a permit) The case yesterday was over New Jersey's ability to repeal its laws banning sports gambling (in the same way some states allow marijuana possession), or essentially, the power of a state to treat a federal law as unconstitutional (nullification, anyone?). The basis for the SC decision is that the PASPA bill 'commandeers' the states' power to repeal laws banning gambling. The decision recognizes the states' sovereignty. Since the activity is not prohibited in Article 1 Section 10, the activity is perfectly fine.

    My brother attends that school. Someone hung a picture (presumably the mugshot) of the superintendent in the bathroom. It was taken down and the school announced that the culprit would be suspended if he was found. The superintendent is currently on paid leave of absence.
