I must be on the worst of email lists. I received one today describing how the Kenyon socialist hidden-Muslim Oreo President will use his Chicago thugs to kill Associate Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. He will do so, according to this authoritative source, so that the one term negro President can appoint a "communist activist judge" to replace him. (That is an actual quote). Such a judge will lead the fight to overturn landmark rulings like DC v. Heller and Citizens United v. FEC. ~sigh~
JC has a terrific post up about a ground-up (double entendre totally meant) movement to amend the Constitution, overturning the ridiculous idea of 'corporate personhood'. In truth, that was never part of the Constitution at all. It is hard to know which is more saddening. The idea that corporations are persons, or the notion that we need an amendment to spell the obvious outright, that corporations do not have a voice which speaks as one person.
Strangely, I agree with Dave Budge. This probably isn't an issue that should be tackled at the city level. Tackling it at the Missoula city level is a certain way to garner opposition from most of the rest of the state. I disagree with Dave this much: a city resolution might inspire a state representative to introduce the call for amendment to the Montana Legislature, a much more appropriate venue. Of course, given our current state legislature, that would be as useful as farting in the wind. Still, the call should go forward.
Not that it will matter when the Kenyon's mob kills Justice Kennedy ...
Good afternoon, I say to you as we reside just 6 hours away from a federal government shutdown. In the interest of full disclosure, that shutdown will directly effect 5 people very near and dear to me. Avoidance of the shut down would effect many more, about half our population in fact.
