176 years ago yesterday

Thanks to my Mom, who reminded me that James Madison died on June 28, 1836, at his home in Montpelier, Virginia, only 3.4 miles (as the Whip-poor-will flies) away from the house in which I grew up.

Father of the Constitution

176 years later to the day, the Supreme Court of the United States dealt his beloved foundational achievement a crippling blow.

to my dear friends

To those of you who aren’t already hopelessly in the tank for an avowed hard leftist temporary President/tyrant of this great nation, I pen this tough love plea. In response to this morning’s disastrous, indefensible decision by the Supreme Court, I’ve noticed a theme repeated in several locations. Something to the too little, too late effect of “I don’t usually share my political thoughts online, but…”

…and I ask rhetorically, how’s that approach working out for our dear nation? I’m sorry to point out the obvious, but your politeness and social graces have played out quite conveniently for aggressive leftist ideologues. As an expression of their gratitude towards you, you’re derided as a racist, homophobic, xenophobic, teabagging, women-hating, evil rich hundred-thousandaire bigot hobbit (ah, don’t mention it, you’re most welcome).

Back to those of you in the leftist tank, who permit your “leaders” boundless leeway in these (and endless other) destructive means: start working on that explanation to your grandchildren. Your creative writing skills remain sorely inadequate for the eventuality. Good luck in shouldering that burden. My fellow patriots and I will not carry it for you.

what individual freedom remains?

Today we frittered away the historically sound legacy of true historical greats. We gave away the foundation of individual freedom that our forefathers fought for and died to defend. We surrendered the very essence of this country. For what? To stroke an arrogant, misguided, impossible fool – a small man, a temporary politician unworthy of his post. Welcome to the US, our dying soft (currently hardening) tyranny. To future generations, some of us are immeasurably sorry for the harm we’ve inflicted on you. We fought this, I shed tears this morning – but we failed you.

Liberals want a dead Constitution

Mark Levin has an amazing talent for illustrating simple truths that are plain to see, yet easy to miss. Case in point from one of his recent shows: surely you’ve heard a liberal yearn for their holy grail of a “living, breathing Constitution.” It never struck me this way before Mark said it, but a living, breathing Constitution (i.e. an infinitely, casually changeable one) is actually a dead Constitution, because the words cease to mean anything.

not living or breathing

As Mark eloquently put it, we are a living, breathing people guided by a well conceived, stable, foundational law of the land. A liberal newspeak constitution would never be worthy of such company.

The Heritage Guide to the Constitution

An interactive Constitution from the Heritage Foundation. Way better than Windows 3.1.

if I owned a golf club…

…I’d open membership to everyone except Barack Obama.  My reasoning would be my extreme intolerance of Constitutional dimwits.  On second thought, my only reason would be that I just don’t like him.

I would only exclude Obama from my private Golf Club

CF Party

As a recovered control freak, I fancy myself somewhat of an expert on the subject of control freakdom. Until it mends its ways, I’ll call the Democratic Party what it really is: the CF Party. You know, control freak, charlie foxtrot, clust… well, you get the point.

Humans are mere cost – take Sebelius, for example

Being a radical leftist must be horribly depressing.  Whether one hates all humanity or arrogantly deems himself above the unwashed masses makes little difference.  His pathetic machinations will be quickly forgotten on the ash heap of endless past tyrants.  True greatness requires qualities that he never did, and never will possess.

Secretary of Sunk Cost

According to temporary political hack HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, humans are nothing more than “estimated cost.”  Sebelius must be bitter over her intimate personal knowledge of existing as nothing but sunk cost to tens of millions of greater Americans who carry her dead weight.  May I remind Secretary Superfluous:

the fact is, we don’t need a Hoyer

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D, Maryland) says you don’t need a budget. Oh yes, it’s right there in black and white over at CNSNews.com:

“What does the budget do? The budget does one thing and really only one thing: It sets the parameters of spending and discretionary caps. Other than that, the Appropriations committee are not bound by the Budget committee’s priorities.”

don't wag your finger at me, sir (AP Photo)

“The fact is, you don’t need a budget. We can adopt appropriations bills. We can adopt authorization policies without a budget. We already have an agreed-upon cap on spending.”

Future generations? Hyper-inflation? Hoyer’s honor? Any sense of decency whatsoever? Duty to country? Steny Hoyer has no need for such outdated concerns. (You got something to say about it?  Didn’t think so.)  Brazen impunity is more his style. What a jerk.

I solemnly swear to ignore my oath

According to the Supreme Court website, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg took two oaths on August 10, 1993.  First, the Constitutional Oath:

“I, [Ruth Bader Ginsburg], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.  So help me God.”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
