Colorado Female Senator

At a hearing on the Colorado bill HB 1226, listens to a rape victim say that if she had her gun she could have stopped the rapist. This woman was a martial arts expert, but the rapist was much bigger than she and had a weapon. The Senator has the audacity to say to this woman that, even if she had a gun the attacker probably would have been able to get it from her and use it on her. She says that statistics are against her being able to defend herself against a larger more aggressive male attacker.

There are two obvious wrongs here, one the woman was attacked on a college campus and two this Senator doesn’t know her head from her nether region. There are two things that this woman should have said to this woman, then shut her mouth before her foot reached it. One, I am sorry that you were attacked, and, perhaps we need to step back from taking away your right to protect yourself. I am really amazed at these Democrats in Colorado, they do not want a woman to have the right to protect herself, and they want to make all women on campus fair game for rapists, robbers and other assorted trash, by making sure the campus is a gun free zone.

At one time I thought Colorado would be a nice place to live, now I know it is not. I’ll stay in Texas where common sense prevails. We even have school districts where the teachers and administrators are allowed to carry concealed. I don’t understand the mentality that wants to allow killers, rapists and other scum of the earth to be able to prey on innocent children, women and men teachers, just to keep the campus safe from guns. That Colorado State Senate chamber needs to be cleared of idiots who have no conception of real life, and bring in some folks who have actually done something productive. You know, ranchers, oil field workers, mechanics, send the lawyers packing so that maybe some common sense will prevail. While we are at it would be a good thing to do the same thing in Washington D. C. get rid of the lawyers and bring in working people for a change.

SCOTUS and Original Intent

As I listen to the political rhetoric I find myself becoming more upset with the politicians who claim to support the Constitution, and less sure of their reality. I wonder if these people have even read the Constitution of the United States.

Article III of the Constitution says that “The judicial Power of the United State, shall be vested in one Supremem Court and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.” Under Section 2 we read this: “The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under the Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority; to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls; to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction; to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party; to Controversies between two or more States;” (see 11th Amendment for further case types). Further, “In all cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in whicha a State shall be Party, the Supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction.” According to what this says the Supreme Court has Jurisdiction in Constitutional matters, and the Court must decide whether something before it passes Constitutional muster. There are of course other things that have affect in this, but the Constitution itself gives credence to the reality that the Supreme Court has Jurisdiction to decide the case before it.

I may not be a lawyer (thank heavens), but I can read, I can think things through and don’t need 100 pages of legal mumbo jumbo to tell me what is plain in the original text. So, if the Court decides that something is unconstitutional, then it is, it is not setting some kind of precedent for the Court to decide the case, either for or against the Government, even if the President thinks they don’t have the right. The Original Intent of the founders of this nation meant for the Supreme Court to be the final arbitrator of what is and is not Constitutional. We may not like what the decision is, but the legislature can always repeal or amend a statute, that is their job.

There are many statements in our Constitution that have been debased over the years by politicians and lawyers, it is time for the people of the these United States to read and understand for themselves what is and is not true. I hope that the Constitution will become required reading for all High School students in this nation. The Constitution is what framed our nation, and what keeps it together. Do not allow the politicians to continue to take away from we the People the power we hold by this document.
