The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
The Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
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.
When the U.S. government is taxing our grandchildren for the purposes of increasing spending, the rights of the state are trampled. Thank goodness states are fighting back.
Call your state representative. Tell them you want to govern your own state, not Washington. Before we’re all broke.
These states have already passed or have resolutions pending to pass the Tenth Amendment Movement: Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington.
Soon to come: Alaska, Alabama, California, Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Nevada, Maine, Pennsylvania.

Has it really been a week since I posted?
I think the cease-fire between Hezbollah and Israel is a mistake. I think Pat Buchanan’s new book that western civilization is inflammatory but has a lot of truth. I think scientist that predicted a very active hurricane season ought to be brought to prime-time television, admit they really had no idea and they were trying to either increase newspaper sales or make a name for themselves, and then fired. I think there are a lot of holes in John Karr’s story but he’s been given way too much media for his confession of killing Jon Benet Ramsey. I think Time Magazine putting Hillary Clinton’s picture on the front and declaring “She’s Ready to Run” isn’t news and shows their left-wing bias. I think the Democrats are making a serious strategic error by alienating their base in New Hampshire. I think I’m glad I didn’t see “Snakes on a Plane” after the reviews this morning.
Other than that, not a whole lot of opinions on this side of the monitor. How about you? Give me a 1-sentence opinion on any topic you wish and tell me your opinion. Supporting facts aren’t necessary, it’s just your opinion.

This is brilliant. Last week, the Supreme Court trampled the 5th Amendment, saying cities can confiscate private property if it leads to more tax revenue. In other words, anything the government wants to confiscate, it can, as long as it has a slick marketing campaign.
So today, developer Logan Darrow Clements filed a request to the town of Weare, New Hampshire, asking to build a hotel at 34 Cilley Hill Road. The new hotel will generate more taxes and economic benefits than the house that’s currently located there, which happens to be owned by Justice Souter. For now, anyway.
The proposed development, called “The Lost Liberty Hotel” will feature the “Just Desserts CafÃ©” and include a museum, open to the public, featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America. Instead of a Gideon’s Bible each guest will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand’s novel “Atlas Shrugged.”
Clements indicated that the hotel must be built on this particular piece of land because it is a unique site being the home of someone largely responsible for destroying property rights for all Americans.
“This is not a prank” said Clements, “The Towne of Weare has five people on the Board of Selectmen. If three of them vote to use the power of eminent domain to take this land from Mr. Souter we can begin our hotel development.”
Since this law was found to be constitutional, I think confiscating a Supreme Court Justice’s home is a good place to start. Brilliant idea.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 4 so far )
The “October Surprise” by the media about missing explosives didn’t work this year. Why? Obvious: it wasn’t person. Now if CBS could come up with documents that say Bush personally took the explosives, that might stick a little.
Instead, it comes across as criticizing the troops, calling them incompetent. They are not; our troops are over there serving our country and keeping us safe. Not a bad word against them, y’hear?
The Wizbang poll above shows the current projections. Interesting numbers; Al Gore took New Jersey by 16 points, but now it’s a dead heat. And Florida? Bush is up by 8 points. If Bush wins Florida, Kerry must win Ohio, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, New Jersey, Wisconson, Michigan, and New Hampshire. In other words all of the other swing states.
Me, I’ve already voted. Bet you can’t guess who I voted for.
