The Founders Warned Us About Some One Some Time...Could Be Right About Now.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
It serves always to distract the public councils and feeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves with in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

The SCOTUS is looking promising. I wonder why they delay til June for a decision announcement.

It sure seems the forced purchase section is shot down, and they're haggling over killing the whole thing. The Head, the Tail, the Whole Damn Thing :) But we'll see if Jaws can be killed.

Kid, I posted this a post or two back-changed the title.
Isn't it sad that no one will see it, posted this way or that way?
I may get a few lookers-but no one will read it for any true meaning.
I post a lot of strong remedies-that, with out a doubt, are strong enough to hold up. But, sadly no one with a real clear understanding of how to use such --to keep from engaging (in waiting until a tantrum feels like the right action).
That's why I don't post much-not much use in it; No One Cares.
