    And before you make a snide remark about flintlocks and quill pens, the Framer's original intent was that the right to bear arms extended to the equal armament common to military use, and the original intent of freedom of speech extended to all manner of expression. Whereas the original intent of the Army was a land based combat force, and the Navy a sea based combat force. Original intent is a thing. maybe you should look it up.

    The Constituion clearly authorizes two Departments. Army, and Navy. This covers land and sea. If they want a force for the Air, they need to amend the Constitution. If they want a force for Space, they need to amend the Constitution. Original Intent. The Framers did not originally intend aircraft and spaceships.

    You don't get to wish whatever you want into the Constitution. The Constitution authorized two branches. An Army branch and a Navy branch. Any military force must either reside under one of the two Constitutionally authorized branches, or a Constitutional Amendment must be made to amend the Constitution to authorize a third branch. This isn't rocket science, and I know you are smarter than this. Is this deliberate, or is this just an example of Trumgasming?

    So yeah, you are claiming to understand the Constitution better than the guy who wrote it. James Madison wrote in The Virginia Report, 1800, by the Virginia House of Delegates, that the Sedition Act was unconstitutional.

    You should demand a refund from your history professor. That base in Georgia that James Madison established in 1811 for Marines to operate out of? Yeah, you didn't know anything about that at all, did you?

    LMAO! James Madison wrote the Constitution, but Swordsmyth here understands it better than the guy who...you know...actually wrote it... John Adams signed the Act into law to form the Marines in 1798. James Madison served 1809-1817 and continued to utilize the Marines in 1811. Clearly the guy who wrote the Constitution thought they were Constitutional.... Because they were organized under the Constitutional Department of the Navy. smdh.

    No, the Army and Navy provisions are organizational. The Army Air Corps was organized under the Department of the Army. The same people who wrote the Constitution also created the Marine Corps and put them under the Department of the Navy. Are you claiming that the same people who wrote the Constitution did not know how to understand the words that they, themselves wrote?

    The Marine Corps was raised up by an Act of the Continental Congress on 10 November 1775, and then again in the Constitutional era on 27 March 1794. The Marines were used extensively as an “Army Afloat” for amphibious raids and land marches like the assault on Derna right from the start. Their role did not actually depend on the Navy from the origins of the organization. If what you were claiming was correct, then Congress would have formed the Marines as a “Water Army” branch instead of putting them under the Department of the Navy in order to retain full Constitutionality. The proper method of Constitutional interpretation is Original Intent. The same people who wrote the Constitution had already dealt with the formation of another kind of military branch, and we can see that original intent in that act. Only two military departments are authorized in the Constitution. If you want more than two, amend it. I happen to agree that that we need an Air Force. Until we amend the Constitution, it needs to remain under the Department of the Army.

    Why not have 80 Departments of the Army? You are doing the the exact same bizarre interpretation dance that gave us the FDA, Department of Education, the Drug War, Wickard v Filburn and more. That’s not the way the Constitution is supposed to work. You can’t just retcon whatever you want into the Constitution. That’s how the Swamp operates.

    That sounds like justification for anything you can dream of. After all, the drug war is just a function of interstate commerce, right? Sorry, words have meaning. You don’t get to run around changing the meaning of words in order to shoe-horn whatever the hell you want I to the Constitution. That’s how the left is trying to neuter the Second Amendment. “Regulated” and all that. Article 1 Section 8 authorizes ONE Army and ONE Navy, so even if we took your absurdity as an “Air Army” it still doesn’t work. The provision is organizational, not connotative. When it was the Army Air Corps it was under the Department of the Army and therefore Constitutional. In order to become it’s own organizational branch it requires a Constitutional Amendment. This should be blatant on it’s face. Don’t get carried away by wishful thinking.

    Just because the government does it, doesn’t automagically make it Constitutional. In order to have a US Air Force that is not the Army Air Corps, requires a Constitutional Amendment. If you seriously got an Air Force out of Article 1 Section 8, then I don’t think I’ve got anything to help you.

    The NCLEG just unanimously passed "AN ACT TO REQUIRE RESIDUAL OIL FROM HEMP EXTRACT TO BE DISPOSED AT ESTABLISHED SPECIFIC SECURE COLLECTION BOXES MANAGED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT." CBD oil is legal in NC as long as it contains less than a percent of THC. Now if you use CBD oil you have to dispose of your bottles with the cops. SMDH

    The failed 2010 bill, the successful 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2017 bills, and the currently considered 2018 bill hand that power to local cops. The 2018 bill currently may remove the warrant requirement from local cops and certified diversion investigators, while retaining the warrant requirement for Sheriffs.

    Also worth noting, the bill I killed in 2011, was then implemented piecemeal in 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2017. The current act merely consolidates and expands that existing law.

    Strike that "better," they stuck the Sheriff access in section 11 page 6 line 22. So it's even WORSE than 2011. It looks like it will be heard around 4:30 5pm ish, and there is a committee substitute as well as a number of amendments to consider. Craig Horn's (unsurprisingly) first amendment makes it even worse, adding in access for ALL local law enforcement, and lowers the standards to "good-faith" https://dashboard.ncleg.net/CalendarItem/2017/H/0/2018-06-13/21928

    Long history behind this one. I killed this effort almost single handedly in 2011 by screaming bloody murder and making it too embarrassing to push. I THOUGHT there was an article about the current effort here on RPFs about ... a month or so ago? But after a search it turns out that discussion was on fedbook with some GOP County Chairs, who mostly took my side of the argument. It passed unanimously out of the Senate on 5/11, and it's on the House Calendar for today. https://www2.ncleg.net/BillLookUp/2017/s616 The piece referred to in the headline is section 8, starting on page 3 line 36.

    Stanford's well-known university, in collaboration with the Romana Caps Choir, used all the information available to copy the experience of being in Hagia Sophia 700 (Constantinople) years after the last time the Divine Liturgy was heard inside. They in essence replicated the acoustics of the structure. I think our resident chanters/choir members may appreciate this!
