It Most Certainly IS Constitutional To Withhold Congressional Pay

There are a lot of fools who fancy themselves smart. Sometimes these fools even exist within the Conservative and Libertarian movement. Seriously, if I hear one more of these yo-yos whine about how it is “unconstitutional” for Congressional pay to be withheld pending the passage of an actual budget, I am going to scream. And if I hear one more supposedly Constitutionally literate talking head on the right claim this, I am going to demand that they permanently turn in their membership in the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

The Constitution Isn’t A Black Box

The federal Constitution, according to those who penned it, is a limited set of powers granted by the States and the People to our federal government. Modern liberals disagree, thinking that the document is an unlimited grant of power for them to do whatever they want. Our federal government, infested with do-gooder leftists, believes in this new, rewritten Law of the Land with a fervency that is so nauseating and destructive, that it has brought us to the edge of oblivion with deficits piled on deficits for the sake of funding their doing whatever they want. They treat government as some sort of “black box”, whereby they can pull any club out of it that they so choose and then bludgeon us with it. Continue reading

A Message To Barack Obama From George Washington

President Obama is, despite the claims, about as much of a Constitutional Scholar as my dog is a connoisseur of fine art. Continue reading

Getting Anngry Over The Truth Isn’t Going To Make You Right

Apparently I have touched off a nerve by discussing, and citing facts to back up my discussion, about how the Civil War was really about slavery. In my article this past week, discussing people petitioning the White House for the right of their States to secede from The Union, I also discussed how secession of the Southern States was about their desire to keep blacks enslaved. Continue reading

States Don’t Need To Petition To Leave The Union

You might have heard stories this past week about states that are petitioning the President for permission to secede from The Union. The Union, being The United States of America. But this actually is just sloppy reporting by the main stream media. Continue reading

The Kids Are Revolting

Children across the nation are revolting against First Lady Michelle Obama’s do-gooderism. They are not rolling over and eating the food the federal government is now mandating be served in schools.  Throwing away the food deemed disgusting (such as hummus … Continue reading

When It Comes To Romney, Ryan, Obama, And Biden, Ryan IS The Smartest Guy In The Room

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), now Romney’s VP pick, somewhat understands the problems with big government. His problem is that he doesn’t understand how exactly to tear down said big government. The budget proposals bearing his name over the past few years, which give us deficits as far as the eyes can see, and which keep funding all sorts of unconstitutional things, are exhibit A in that argument. I know many conservatives hate to hear it, but the truth is important to face. Continue reading

Idiots will never learn – the Second Amendment is a good thing!

Salman Rushdie is what one would call a classical moron.  He’s got a lot of company too. In the wake of the tragic shooting in Colorado where a self-centered, obvious liberal of some flavor, identified easily by his lack of … Continue reading

Obama Ineligible For Presidency, Liberals Argue

I do so love the liberals that torture themselves every week by reading my articles. Last week, they got their panties in a bunch over how, by their own “logic”, they are still supporters of race-based slavery. I went through their argument that because the Supreme Court makes a decision, that decision is automatically correct and just (i.e. Obamacare), and pointed out that Dred Scott was a Supreme Court decision that has never been overturned. Conclusion? Liberals must still support such heinous acts because of those facts. They then spent the next several days sending me all the typical vitriol that they can muster in hundreds of angry emails. Continue reading

Thomas Jefferson Denounces Justice Roberts From Beyond The Grave

The Supreme Court, like the Congress or the White House, can say something is Consitutitional. But it is not true unless it actually is Constitutional. Still waiting for anyone to show where under Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution the power to “tax” as a “penalty” for not buying something is actually enumerated. Continue reading

James Madison Tells Justice Roberts Why He Is Wrong

“If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the general welfare, the government is no longer a limited one possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one subject to particular exceptions.” — James Madison, to Edmund Pendleton (letter), January 21, 1792 Continue reading

Roberts Betrays Constitution – Helps Obamacare To Stand

Justice Roberts can no longer claim to be a conservative or a constitutionalist after siding with the far left justices to uphold Obamacare. Roberts proved once and for all he is not competent enough to serve on the Supreme Court … Continue reading

Todays Is The Day We Learn A Lot About The Supreme Court

The Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare is due today. So, therefor, today is the day we learn a lot about our Supreme Court.

There are only three potential outcomes.
1.Obamacare is upheld in full
2.Obamacare is partially tossed and partially kept
3.Obamacare is tossed in full Continue reading

Ooops! More People Who Know And Speak The Truth

Liberals think that the concept that the Constitution is not some nebulous, unlimited grant of power to the federal government is some sort of concoction of evil conservatives like myself. The simple fact is that before liberalism took hold in America, the Constitution was just as conservatives say it actually is and completely contrary to the liberal view. I like to point this out to liberals by actually quoting people from our nation’s history who knew their butts from a hole in the ground on this issue. People like Grover Cleveland who wrote in 1887: Continue reading

It’s Not A New Concept – General Welfare Clause Is Not Unlimited In Scope!

“If Congress can determine what constitutes the general welfare and can appropriate money for its advancement, where is the limitation to carrying into execution whatever can be effected by money?” Continue reading

US Deparment Of Labor Goes Bonkers With Taxpayer Cash

Typical liberal reaction to $4.5 million taxpayer dollars being spent by the Department of Labor, which I posted about yesterday, as “objects of benevolence” has been typical. They whine that it is just a small amount. They whine that it is helping people. They just plain whine. They have to whine because, as I pointed out, the Father of the Constitution, James Madison denounced such things as being not within the power of the federal government. So, you see, these whining liberals who feel the need to email me have no leg to stand on in their support for such things. Continue reading

DoL Distributes More Cash

James Madison, who helped write the Constitution so he would know what it said, opined that, “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.” Continue reading

Obama Cowers As Family Farmers Protest

There is no doubt that President Obama is scared about not being reelecting in November. He’s a liberal after all. And what good is a liberal if he or she is not controlling the levers and switches of government? He might as well become a eunuch and go sit in a corner. Continue reading

Today’s History Lesson

Neither the Federalists nor the Anti-Federalists believed in what are the tenants of modern liberalism. Since neither group believed in such things, it is impossible for the Constitution crafted by consensus between them to have any approvals of modern liberalism. Continue reading

Liberal Sensitivity

Liberals are a sensitive lot. They are sensitive to anyone who calls them the socialists they are. They are sensitive to anyone who calls them the baby killers that they are. They are sensitive to anyone who calls their fiscal policies ruinous. Continue reading
