Amend This

While Congress diddles around with yet another useless amendment to ban flag-burning, and the media obsesses over yet another cute young thing gone missing, the Supreme Court robs you of yet more of your rights.

What is it going to take for Americans to wake up?

Over a year ago, we agreed with Neal Boortz that he had finally found an issue that would resonate with the public and possibly get them to see the wisdom of the Libertarian Party's position on individual rights. (The War On (Some) Drugs just wasn't doing it.)

Since there is the prospect of at least one of the Supremes retiring during the current administration, the opportunity presents itself to add another, more conservative/libertarian voice to the Court. However, as we've pointed out earlier, people voted for Bush Junior to do certain things that would be properly considered "conservative". He's done none of them. What is there to make anyone expect that he will nominate a true conservative to our nation's highest court?

Perhaps the place to burn all those flags would be in front of the Supreme Court bulding.

By the way... is anyone else predicting a drop in real estate values?

UPDATE: Apparently, Neal Boortz not only agrees with us, but also predicts a drop in real estate values. (The entire column is well worth the read, if for nothing else than the links at the end.) His one error, however, is in referring to eminent domain as "right" of the government. The government has no "rights"; the government has powers, delegated to it by the consent of the governed.

Your point is well taken, the "fluff" is consuming energy while the real meat spoils.

Bread and circuses boys, it's the key to controlling the masses. And the oligarchy knows it.

Things haven't progressed much since the days of the ancient Romans. Bread and circuses for the masses, and throw the "heretics" to the lions.
