    Agreed, and yet that power had to be in someone's hands... I would have included a fourth branch whose sole purpose was the determination of constitutionality. That, of course, is weak tea, but in the absence of a population fit to their freedoms, which we are not, it's about the best with which I can come up.

    I must disagree. It is the one clear statement about the free nature of men that is appropriately broad and it is absolutely necessary, especially in a world of dullardly sorts, like the Democrats. Let us hearken back to that which defines a "right". To wit: "A valid claim." Note that when I step up to the soapbox and declare the state of North Carolina as my individual property, it does not follow that everyone must then leave the area when I tell them to do so. My claim is invalid, prima facie, and therefore I have no right to North Carolina. Perhaps I should try Utah... The left does that wishing-well crap now, for Pete's sake. Why do you think their panties are in such a twist over the rightful execution of Roe? At some point, people like you and myownself need to step up and put the looters back into their places. But we don't. We allow them to run amok all willy-nilly for decades on end, in ever intensifying fashion, then wonder why the world has turned to feces? If "government" is indeed BY the people, that would include us. Pimping the responsibilities off onto "professionals" gets us what we now so thoroughly enjoy in our lives: bald-faced tyranny of the worst variety - that which is slathered in a rich cocoa coating... only now they're removing the sweet and leaving the moldy, rotten insides and telling us to eat and be glad about it.

    It will be interesting to see whether a challenge makes it to SCOTUS, and if so, what the ruling will be. If they are concerned with credibility, they would have no choice but to strike down the statute. Were I to write an Amendment XXIX, it would eliminate all statute. All bills would have to pass a strict-scrutiny test of sufficiency to qualify as Law. Statutes would no longer hold a whit of authority, as per Marbury. But more relevant to this thread, severability would be banned. If even a single element of a bill is thrown out by a court, the entire statute goes with it.

    They never go far enough where the right thing is concerned. But it is - by implication. 9A protects ALL rights in clear and unmistakable language. IMO, an early 1T termination is regrettable. People should be better in control of their behavior than what we typically see, but shit does happen even for the responsible. All else equal, however, waiting until one is four months in to decide clearly seems outside the metes of one's personal prerogative. That we as humans are so degenerated that we feel the need to have to resort to such measures is the real problem. Fix that and the rest resolves without dangerous outside interferences in the lives of freemen. A couple things. Firstly, what you wrote here underscores and nails shut the lid on Tenth Amendment as cancer. There is NO SUCH THING as "states' rights" because there are no such things as states, in sé. Remove humans and anything that might be deemed "state" disappears as if by magic or high-order thermonuclear detonation. It is a bullshit amendment that represents a pinnacle of pooching by the Framers, and should be stricken. The Ninth is perhaps the preeminent element of the BoR because it shorthands that which is normatively and provably absolute in its correctness: human freedom is absolute with the single restrictive proviso that one respect the equally valid claims of his fellows. In this, the English whom I tend to find otherwise so despicable, had it perfectly right when Commonlaw was codified with but three almost childishly simple seeming tenets:

    If that be the case, and all else equal, then I would deem it a valid standard. But the yammer about "tradition" is idiotic on its face. Were I a justice and had allowed those flying things escape my yap, I'd resign on the spot for sheer shame and wear a paper bag over my head for the rest of my life, even in the house.

    Validity turns on the precise meaning of "textualism". As for tradition, that should have no part of such decisions.

    How is it that SCOTUS decides one case based on principle (Roe), yet another (NYS licensing scheme) on "text and tradition"? What in hell goes on inside those skulls? Principle is all that matters. Lynching used to be tradition for southern Democrats, yet I can no longer gather me up a bunch o'negroes and have me a fine old-timey hangin'. The inconsistency of these people underscores the tenuous nature of our liberties when they are placed in the hands of strangers whose abilities and allegiances all stand in deep question.

    I'm sure I am mistaken, but this sort of tactic has the feel of something that would stand in violation of election statutes along the lines of "undue influence" or "coercion" pursuant to an outcome that otherwise would be unlikely.

    SCOTUS rightly kicks Roe to the curb and the "left" goes apoplectic. Those people seem utterly unwilling to ever give measured responses to any development with which they disagree. It's always exasperated cries of how the sky is falling. When I am alone in the car, I usually listen to NPR because it's good to hear how the enemy thinks. I don't listen with Bibi in the car for fear she will draw her sidearm and put the radio, and possibly some vital system of the car, permanently out of commission. With the overturn, it was the height of cheap amusement to hear the NPR drones going off about how the world was ended. Are they that egregiously ignorant? Dishonest? Both? They claimed it was the end of abortion and contraception. Neither claim is true. All the decision did was to rightly declare that there is no constitutional right to an abortion, which in my thinking strikes more at federal funding, than anything else. They are going off in similar fashion on the 2A ruling. NJ's governor and AG got up before the cameras and waved their hands for all they were worth, declaring how "most New Jerseyans" want strict gun laws and now Joizey has one of the lowest rates of gun violence in the nation, etc. NJ's crime rate is through the ceiling. Murder is high there, but I guess being cut to ribbons, beaten to death, tossed off a precipice, etc., are better than being shot. "...ronka ronka ronka...you still have to have a permit to carry a concealed weapon in NJ... ronka ronka ronka..." Honesty, basic intelligence, and smarts seem alien to these people.

    I sadly exclaim BINGO. One has also to wonder about the "discovery" of prions in the 1980s. Were they discovered or were they "discovered", if you catch my drift (no, I didn't fart)? It seems strange to me that something so basic as a prion could have remained sub rosa in the context of a world lousy with wild and furious research in the lines of study that would be most likely to discover such entities. I suppose it is possible, but my statistical sense is non-trivially chafed by this notion. I will also note that so far as I can tell, the very first case of mad-cow ever discovered was in Britain in 1986. If prions have been a natural phenomenon since some ancient eon, how is it that it had managed to go undetected until so late? That fact leaves me suspicious that prions are a man-made contrivance, whether intentionally synthesized, or arrived upon by accident. But nobody's talking, so the truth may never be publicly released.

    I'm waiting for the reports to start coming in about rising infertility rates. It will be interesting to see how long it takes and how the phenomenon will be couched. Perhaps Theye will even admit to the "vaccine" as culprit. By then, the damage will be done and Theye will be able to frame up the providers as the evildoers... or simply chalk it up to honest errors... big emergency... had to act fast... blah blah... and every guilty soul is off the hook. "We must look forward for solutions to this dire crisis..." It will all be conveniently forgotten as new crises emerge and in a couple of years all talk of "solutions" will have waned to silence. Entire generations will fail to reproduce and in, say 30-50 years Theye will get their precipitous drop in population. Happy happy, joy joy. What will be further interesting will be if per wild chance Theye were to discover in the interim that stepping the population down is a very bad idea. Then what? Imagine the chaos as all the ***** and tranny sorts are then demonized into the oblivion of closeted existence once more, surviving straight people encouraged and perhaps even required to pump out as many children as possible. Sounds absurd, which is precisely why it is plausible.

    Yes, it was clearly done on purpose, and as things currently stand with most people choosing options B or C, engaging in option A constitutes a textbook study in pissing up a rope. Critical mass is required and I do not believe we are even close to it. Three percent was enough in 1776. In 2022, I suspect it is not. I'd be surprised if we would hold a shred of hope at ten or fifteen percent. Tech-enabled tyranny has changed the game in a fundamental way.

    Before rolling your eyes, I fully acknowledge that what I have written here is nothing new. It is, in fact, old hat. And yet, the ideas here appear to be slipping ever farther from the awareness of the average man, the Meaner. And so I have set my personal take to written word with the intention of offering the world yet another expression of the same old thing in the sliver-thin hope that it may cause a soul or two to twig and come around to a new sense of things, for we are now rapidly descending the drain pipe with the deep end of the septic tank wel in sight, impact not so very far away. Read it if you will, and spread it widely if you feel I am not full of something I ought not be so full of. https://freedomisobvious.blogspot.com/2022/06/a-constitutionally-limited-republic.html America was founded as a "constitutionally limited republic". Forgetting the fact that a vast plurality of Americans today do not even know this fact, all too commonly getting things grossly wrong by referring to America as a "democracy", many of even those who know the proper appellation still do not know what it means with any sufficiency. What, then, does it mean to be a constitutionally-limited republic? Let us take a quick look and divine the true meaning of this term which seems to have evaded so many, myself included at a time.

    And yet. If what is alleged is true, every single person involved should be executed, especially those in "government". Just when you think you've seen it all, this. I can hardly find the words, but I thank Ms. Brook Jackson for blowing the whistle on these devils. We should hunt them to extinction - every last one. "Outrage" doesn't begin to cover it. I'm still having a hard time believing it's actually true, even in light of my good experience that tells me this should be eminently believable. But here we are. https://tennesseestar.com/2022/06/01/whisteblowers-lawyer-pfizer-got-away-with-vaccine-fraud-because-government-was-co-conspirator/

    Good on a good mama for giving the Man her finger and getting it done. As for hope, no, not really. Not at these low numbers. We need this sort of defiance going on millions of times per hour. Force Theire hands, either to stand down or escalate. Either way would do, though there is a certain appeal in the thought of sending home a good 100K of Theire useful idiots home in ziplocks.
