Friendly Warning: COS before the Virginia General Assembly (Again)!

I dearly wish I did not have to be so negative about the Article V Convention of States issue. It would be nice if the states and people could take back their founding document and restore the Republic through a COS. But the risk is too great. And I see my delegate, Chris Peace, is […]

A Dem Running for President who will Get Some Love at This Blog: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawai’i

The ERA Cannot be “Ratified” by Virginia (or any Other State) Without a Constitutional Crisis

I wondered for a moment or two this week if I had stumbled into a singularity or time warp. I had to ask myself: Is this 2019? I once debated the chair of the Wright State University student government on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in – wait for it – 1979! (Maybe it was […]

A Frightening Article in the Atlantic on the Emergency Powers of the President; Libertarians Need to Add This to Their To Do List!

I am skeptical of the Atlantic; good writing of course. I respect good writing. But they seem too anti-Trump for my liking. This article is both good writing and too anti-Trump.

NOW Is THE Time: Here are the Members of the College Football Playoff Committee – Politely Let ‘Em Know: UCF SHOULD BE FOURTH!

Earlier yesterday afternoon, I thought:  I will not write this post.  UCF Knights were behind (so was Alabama!) 24-7 to a tough Memphis and the Knights did not have their star QB. It looked bleak.  I went to a church Christmas Party.  Found out UCF had made a game of it – 41-35 with Memphis […]

An interesting situation could emerge in college football and if it occurs and if the College Football Playoff fumbles this it will be bad for the game.  It will say the game is rigged in favor of the major conferences.
