That is why SS and Obamacre are the Big Lie! They are not there for you to be taken care of., They are there to control you! And that is why they sold it to you one way and then argued them from a completely different angle in court. And won both times! And the result is the same. All taxes belong to the general fund and the citizens have no tangible right to them. Therefore the Supreme Court has determined there are no conferred rights to that SS money. The same will hold true with Obamacare!
Not sure what article you are referring to Martha, but from what I have seen in the New Yorker is in false agreement with many on the left that he has power under the 14th amendment. That is false! The 14th amendment gives Congress (not the President) authority under article 5 to enforce article 4 of the same. What Obama can do is make sure the interest on the debt is paid and then allocate the rest to whatever programs he can fund. Not raising the debt ceiling does not create a default as there is plenty of revenue to take care of the debt service. Programs are not debts, but instead the bonds issued to pay for them are!
And another misconception by many is that Congress is obligated to pay SS and Medicare. No they are not as determined by a 1960 Supreme Court decision!
Except your missing my main point here and that is negotiations for which Obama and Reid have refused! So the liability is with them!
There is only debate because there will always be those who love big government and the second amendment gets in the way!
As for solutions, how does an assault on the 2nd amendment provide a solution to the problem? Lanza was not stopped because he had to re-load. He shot himself when the cops finally showed up! So it seems obvious to me he could have been stopped sooner had an armed school official or an armed security guard been on duty. Is that fool-proof? No, and neither is anything else. But I am tired of "feel good" legislation that violates my rights and freedoms and does absolutely nothing to solve the problem.
The Supreme Court did no such thing!
I'll tell you what. You go back to constitutionally authorized government and we will go back to muskets. In the meantime, as long as the government continues to violate the constitution by growing beyond the bounds of the 18 enumerated powers and thereby threatening our freedoms and rights, the more "We the People" need assault weapons. REAL ONES! And stop insulting the intelligence of our Founders as well.
What the amendment proccess is for! Not government fiat.
Intentionally left open? Where on earth did you get that idea? And where are you seeing voters rights limited? And where are birth control choices being limited? As for Gay Marriage, the constitution does not confer power to the Federal Government to re-define marriage or over rule the states as intended by the 10th amendment. In other words it is a state issue.
" Some men look at constitutions with sanctimonious reverence, and deem them like the arc of the covenant, too sacred to be touched." That is why they instituted the amendment proccess!
"Yet, you tea party folks scream about issues that are none of your business while vilifying rape victims and any non-white right wing Christians."
Oh really? Like what? What kind of guns I can own? What kinda of soda I can drink? What kinda of health insurance I should have? You gotta be kidding me! Stop drinking the Kool-aid and stop watching cartoons!
The facts are irrelevant. The constitution does not allow for gun control. If
you want that to be different to reflect the current times, then pass a constitutional amendment!
I meant to say the governments who outgunned their respective citizens lost!
