Darrylene, my long-lost sister! I thought I’d never hear from you after Mama threw you out of the house for selling yourself for a few hits of crack. It’s such a coincidence that you ended up in the small town of Glasgow. There’s this person there that goes by “Lordy,” who keeps trying to engage me in a discussion but it’s like listening to a broken record.

Please try to be more selective in your choice of friends there. If you ever kick the pipe, you’d be welcome to join us at the compound.

The basic rules of logic can be tricky for the uninitiated and require some discipline and exercise to master. Let me explain as concretely as possible. Failure of the constitution to specify that something is legal does not make it illegal. The constitution does not say that it is legal for there to be Republican and Democratic political parties, that a woman, African American or Mormon may serve as president, that states may adopt official state flowers or slogans, etc.
I could do this until I’m orange in the face, but what would be the point? You’re stuck in the attack mode dedicated to espousing only one irrefutable idea ad infinitum in the form of regurgitating without formal analysis most anything and everything that you believe to demonstrate your belief system.
You might want to check out http://www.campbellsville.edu/ .
Wow, that was a really long and drawn out way of saying "you're stupid". No matter how you have couched it, you're still letting your elitism and disdain slip through in overwhelming force.

The 10th Amendment states that "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

So actually, yes the Constitution DOES say that the Republican party and Democrat party are legal. The First Amendment includes the freedom of association. Americans are free to associate with and without whom we wish, for whatever reason we like.(Or at least we should be) Only the government must treat us with “equal justice under law". In Roberts (1984), the Court recognized that the power to determine its own membership is central to the free speech rights of expressive organizations, and what is more expressive of our values and beliefs than the political parties we choose to support financially and with our vote.

The point being, the Constitution sets limits to the powers available to the government, especially the Federal government. There should be SOMETHING that the Federal Government can point to for the laws and regulations it sets forth. Otherwise, there really is no law.
Feel free to make the Constitutional argument concerning the legality of Obamacare, or any of the other departments and spending that I previously mentioned. Unless your whole constitutional argument is that b/c the Constitution doesn't explicitly state we can't have "x", then we can.(of course, that means ignoring the 10th amendment...)

You appear to be what many refer to as "an over educated idiot".

That was an embarrassing presentation, certainly not the best way to define your demeanor. I’ve showered you with meaningful substance and you consistently failed to recognize it. Your agenda is to fail thusly and only react reflexively in direct opposition with an apparently endless stream of ridiculous challenges.

If you want meaningful content, you will need to open your mind to new ideas and think for yourself rather than just being oppositional to those who can and do. Seriously, seek a college education. It will make you more capable. formal education does not tend to people stupid, which is only a myth espoused by people who feel inferior to those who are better educated and equipped to solve problems.

It would be futile to expend further effort for you, WakeUp, but I do wish you well and hope you will choose to elevate yourself.

Assad stays in power in Syria. If you read the body language when Putin sat with Obama, Putin had just whupped theshit out of Obama and didn't have another word to say. Obama was sulking and wanted to continue the discussion, but didn't have anything to say that hadn't already been shoved back into his face.
Putin is in control. Obama is powerless. It was obvious Obama wasn't even in the same class as Putin. Putin plays in the NFL, and Obama is a high school football player.
In the arms limitation negotiations, Russia kicked the everloving shitout of the US.
In the Syria discussion, Russia kicked the everloving shitout of the US.
As long as Obama is the president, Russia the world will kick the everloving shitout of the US.
In reality, the rest of the G20 nations just pretended Obama didn't exist. He's that insignificant.

There is no FEDERAL authority for medicare, social security-though any state could implement those programs if they so chose. The Constitution allows the states to do that which the Federal gov't can not. California is an example of a lefties dream...of course it's bankrupt, but hey, there's plenty of government provided goodies out that way.

Interstate highways could actually fall under the authority to create post roads, which is in the Constitution.

Dams to control flooding, would fall under "public use" and the 5th amendment. Though the eminent domain power has been abused more than most-the term public use has been stretched to justify taking private property from on individual and giving it to another private individual. Such as private homes being taken through eminent domain and given to a private developer, b/c the new mall would generate more tax revenue "for the public good". b/s

Companies that dump pollution into rivers are violating your private property rights since their pollution affects your health, the value of your land, etc, etc. If it crosses state lines, then the Feds have the ability to enforce the laws, if within a single state, then it's the states responsibility to regulate it.

$0.30 an hour wage. Bull, the market would set the wage and benefits based on what the going rate for labor is. There's enough studies out that show that minimum wage laws actually hurt those it's intended to help. Every time minimum wage rises, those who work for minimum wage often find their hours cuts, lost jobs or a reduction in other forms of compensation.

Darryl, you have have said nothing of substance. Just like your quote above. You make assertions about the powers and authority of the government based on the Constitution, and then when asked to actually submit any sort of argument in defense of that position, you revert to an argument along the lines of: "think for yourself" "go to college to be educated" and "open your mind to new ideas".

In a nutshell, you've said I, and those with similar positions, are wrong. When asked to "educate" us on how we're wrong, you hide behind your "education" as that somehow being proof of the superiority of your position w/out having to actually make any argument at all.

Perhaps you should see if they'll give you a refund on your degree? Or maybe take a couple of supplemental summer classes, something that has "critical thinking" in the class title would be a start.

So, attacking the messenger b/c you can't actually defend against what the Washington Times is reporting.

"$2.6 million for the training of "Chinese prostitutes to drink more responsibly on the job," $3.9 million for the SEC to rearrange "desks and offices at its Washington headquarters" and nearly $1 million for the shipping of "two 19-cent washers from South Carolina to Texas," along with the improper use of government credit cards for the purchase of goods including "lingerie, iPods, XBoxes, jewelry, Internet dating services and Hawaiian vacations."

It should be pretty easy to show that this spending never took place, but since they've got the documents...what are you going to do? So that it was all made up? Fabricated? Now you're starting to sound like a birther....

Previous posts questioning education,left out Ky.has quite a few colleges,Like U.of L.,U.of K.,,Sullivan,Spalding,etc.But the fact one has been thru one of these doesn`t make one the only person that can think,have degrees,and sometimes(as in the case of Obama) these institutions create an individual knowledgeable,smart,but with convictions the Constitution is irrelevant.This is also unamerican,and as far as being ashamed to be a Democrat,yes,but for many of us that found out the Democratic Party had left us,we left the Democratic Party!!You should do the same.

So you say you love freedom, but did you protest when George W. Bush repealed habeas corpus and posse comitatus, rights first guaranteed by the Magna Carta in 1215.
You say you’re in favor of smaller government, but you never protested when Gdub expanded it. Or when G. H.W. Bush expanded it. Or when Ronnie Reagan expanded it. Or when Nixon expanded it. Or when Eisenhower expanded it.
You say you’re in favor of democracy, but when Gdub was selected by the five members of the Supreme Court (installed by Republican presidents), one of them Dick Cheney’s close personal friend, you never protested.
You say you’re in favor of openness in government, but you never protested when Dick Cheney set the nation’s energy policy in secret in collaboration with BP, Exxon/Mobil, Halliburton, and the nation’s wealthiest energy companies, or when Cheney and his friends engineered the energy crisis in California and profited hugely.
You say you’re patriots, but you never protested when Cheney ordered the “outing” of a covert CIA agent during a time of war — which U.S. law considers treason. You never protested when the Bush administration tacitly admitted that Gdub was AWOL during a time of war which U.S. law considers a felony.
You never protested when Dubya let Osama escape, when the WMDs turned out to be nonexistent, when the link between Osama and Saddam turned out to be a lie.
You say you believe in human dignity, but you never protested when you found out we were torturing people, some of whom were innocent of any crime.
You say you’re in favor of fiscal restraint, but you never protested when George W. Bush took a budget surplus and a national debt of $5.7 trillion to a gigantic deficit and a national debt of more than $9 trillion.
You say you share the values of the Founders, but you never protested when you found out the Republican government was illegally wiretapping American citizens.
None of this made you angry; none of this frightened you. But you finally got angry when your lawfully elected representatives decided that all Americans deserve the right to see a doctor if they’re sick.
I need to get some of that health care you don’t want me to have – you make me sick!

The Volt only exists thanks to government subsidies. No one wants the thing, and taxpayer money is going much farther than a simple $7,500 a car.
James Hohman at Michigan’s Mackinac Center has added up the numbers at the supply end and found the public subsidy for the Volt amounts to a $3 billion, putting the public subsidy per car at a whopping $250,000 per car. http://www.michigancapitolconfidential.com/16...
The figure looks at total state and federal assistance offered for the development and production of the Chevy Volt. His analysis included 18 government deals that included loans, rebates, grants and tax credits. For example, the Department of Energy awarded a $105.9 million grant to the GM Brownstown plant that assembles the batteries.
The amount of government assistance does not include the fact that General Motors is currently 26 percent owned by the federal government.
Depending on what state, and which other tax incentives, government "loans" that can be used, the Volt is subsidized at roughly $50,000 to $250,000 per car since they've only "sold" approximately 6,000 vehicles.
Oh fur chrissake, just as expected some brainless f-ing wingnuz idiot can’t help himself posting the uber stupid article that has been going around the web for the delight of the right-wingers. Unfortunately it is complete bunk lacking any and all sense of logic. The author of the study, the objective being the rightwing slander of the Volt, added the known state and federal incentives that have been offered and divided by the number of Volts sold – duh! If you divide this $1.5 billion "investment" over 60 million cars over the next 25+ years instead of the 6,000 made over the last year, or the 60,000 to be made next year, the alleged government subsidy comes to $25 per car – some study eh?

Here is the point: Why divide whatever amount --$1.5 billion or otherwise -- by the number of Chevrolet Volts sold to date? If he had done this study one year from now, when we could be looking at 60,000 Volts made, as GM repeatedly has promised, the headline number would be $25,000 per car -- not $250,000. You would divide the $1.5 billion by 60,000 instead of 6,000.
But why stop at a year from now? This investment in automotive propulsion technology is meant to be refined and influence generations of cars for decades. Some part of GM's Voltec architecture and techniques will drive sales of approximately 60 million cars over the next 25 years or so, in any reasonable estimation.
Thus, if you divide this $1.5 billion "investment" over 60 million cars over the next 25+ years instead of the 6,000 made over the last year, or the 60,000 to be made next year, the alleged government subsidy comes to $25 per car, or what you will pay for two movie tickets in Manhattan, popcorn excluded. That's very different from the nasty $250,000 per Volt headline floating all over the Internet.

Executive privilege "CUTS BOTH WAYS".!
Why has executive privilege been such a contentious issue?
Because it is at the fulcrum of a very delicate balancing act — between a president's right to candid advice and Congress' right to information. Also, executive privilege is a power that political parties tend to support when they control the White House, but abhor when they're out of power. For that reason, neither party is eager for a definitive ruling from the Supreme Court. For its part, the high court seems to be in no hurry to wade into such contentious constitutional waters.
BTW...guess who was the first President to invoke EP?
The Father of our nation...George Washington!!!!
