Word is they are working feverishly – even into the late afternoons – in hopes of having their revisions ready for President Obama to sign by Ash Wednesday (Nancy being the good Catholic girl she is.)
As we have noted earlier, revisions to the Bill of Rights have been underway for some time. Of particular irritation to Congressional leaders (who are NOT Socialists by the by) is that 10th amendment:
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Various Republican governors are citing this silly provision as cause for them to resist Federal stimulus which they believe potentially deleterious to the economy, human liberty, and core-being of the American ethos. Pish posh!
Thankfully, Democratic Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina has intervened with provisions to override these fools, declaring that refusing the stimulus is a slap in the face to African Americans. Well of course it is. Afterall, for the past 40 years the Democrats (who are NOT Socialists) have demonstrated repeatedly that African Americans are utterly and completely incapable of fending for themselves without the loving and guiding hand of (mostly white and Democrat) government.
Yes, to oppose the Stimulus is racist. Let there be no more debate.
Right then, now that that’s all tidied up, it’s on to the environment!
