House Representative Jose Serrano introduced HJ Res 15 last week which is a proposal to repeal the 22nd Amendment to the US Constitution. Serrano has beentrying to get such legislation passed since the 1990s. Serrano is bringing the proposal back; however it appears he no more wants Obama to extend his presidency than he wanted all the presidents before Obama to have a longer term.
Eric Olson's insight:
I think that this is crap two year terms have been around forever so why try and change it now keep it how it is and try new people as they come along. Like they say if its working perfectly dont try and change it.
() During a recent off-the-record meeting, a senior government official warned that cyber attacks on United States in 2013 will be worse than they were in 2012, a year during which they reached a peak.
When George Washington became President of the United States in 1789, there were no political parties.Political parties first emerged during Washington’s first term in office with the Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist Party in 1791 and in the following year, the formation of the Anti-Federalist Party or Democratic-Republicans under the leadership of Thomas Jefferson.
The two political parties formulated their views of how government ought to operate in the new republic.
At the end of Washington’s first term, as he was preparing to retire and go back to Mt. Vernon to just be a farmer again, the leaders of the opposing parties both wanted him to reconsider with Hamilton and Jefferson pleading with Washington to stay on for a second term.
Jefferson is credited as stating: “North and South will hang together if they have you to hang on.”
Washington finally consented to such sentiments and was again the obvious choice of the Electoral College as they re-elected him in February of 1793.
Whenever a political party finds itself in a self-created crisis, the common diagnosis is that its ills are a product of the public losing trust in that party. This is true of the Conservatives in the 1990s, of Blair’s Labour Party in the aftermath of the Iraq invasion and the Scottish Liberal Democrats following their electoral annihilation in 2011.
Dwayne Giles wanted to reverse his sentence because he was not able to confront the witness against him. He shot and killed her, but his argument will probably hold up in court. His 6th amendment rights are being protected.
I think that they should tell him what changes should be made and do it right away and get it done because it is such a big and important bill. They will have to be a little more leaniant too to get the bill through.
“You’ll understand me very well when you leave here today, and why we’re all still going to have our guns here in Jackson.” Peyman said in his opening address to his people.
“I am responsible for the people inside this county… I couldn’t justify, if Obama passes this, it doesn’t matter what he passes, the sheriff has more power than the federal people.” Peyman urged.
“They need to go back and study that. We are a commonwealth. I can ask federal people to leave, they have to leave. I can ask state people to leave, they have to leave.”
“I am the highest elected official in this county, and this is the only opportunity the people have to speak for themselves and say ‘this is what we want.’” Peyman told the audience.
Referring to interviews he has recently conducted with local journalists, Peyman said “They asked ‘how are you going to pull these guns?’, and I said ‘you are never going to pull a gun from Jackson County.”
In an interview with the Lexington Herald-Leader this past weekend, Peyman also stated “I consider this a moral obligation… My office will not comply with any federal actions which violate the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold.”
In a separate interview with WKYT news, Peyman spoke about what would happen if the federal government attempted to disarm people in Jackson County:
“We’ll see when push comes to shove. It’s going to have to go into the courtrooms. It’s not going to be, I mean we don’t want a bloodbath in our community when they come in to take guns,” he said. “It’s going to have to be taken care of in a court room before it gets to that point.”
“The only thing I’ve ever told people if someone is kicking or coming in their front door, is I only have to listen to one side of the story.” the Sheriff stated at the town hall meeting.
“I can’t get there quick enough to help those people. My best help to them is to let them keep their firearms… There is nobody who doesn’t really need to have one.”
Peyman then referred to the sanctity of the US Constitution, noting “The Second Amendment makes that pretty clear. Our forefathers made that clear, otherwise it would not have been so high [on the Constitution]. It would have been down the list somewhere.”
“This is the part that is emotional to me,” The sheriff said, his voice cracking.
“I would be ashamed if one of them was in this room right now, and having to listen to what we’re having to talk about. I would be ashamed to have them sit here and listen to them talk about all the people that given their rights for this right for us, and we just give it up so flippantly just because somebody says so. If we did everything that somebody says so, we would not be a country today.”
“I talk about what I can do for my county. I can’t stand up for other counties, I can’t do it for them, but I can stand up for my people.” Peyman vowed.
“I was one of the first people to say, I think they need to arm school teachers. Not all of them, but there is somebody that needs to have a weapon.”
The sheriff then spoke about how the media glamorizes mass shootings and makes them appealing to copycat wannabe’s.
“What would happen if the first two or three that tried it got shot coming in the front door?” Peyman said. “They wouldn’t do that anymore, it would be taken from them, there’s no glory in that for them.”
“In Jackson county, as long as I am Sheriff here, I got children, I got family, I got friends, I got everybody here, and I feel a whole lot better coming into a room if I know everybody is packing, than if I’m the only one, because if they take me out first, then they take everybody else out too.” the Sheriff concluded.
Sheriff Denny Peyman should be commended for his fine job in upholding constitutional rights. He is a shining example to other law enforcement officers who should take note of his concerns regarding the ongoing attack on the Second Amendment. Rest assured, Peyman is also not the only Sheriff ready to stand up and defend the rights of his people.
LBN: Women and past co-workers of Mitt Romney speak up and speak out about their experiences working with Mitt Romney and his commitment to restoring America.
It is great to see this post on the popular blogging site for women, Blogher. I hope that these posts will influence women voters to think wisely before they vote in November. So far the Obama administration and campaign has focused on a faux war on women created by the GOP. However, the real war on women is coming from Obama's policies. More women are unemployed or in poverty than they have been in 17 years! Too many are single women, or single moms who do not have a husband to support them and tend to seek welfare to get by. Sadly, they often become govt dependents rather than achieve self-reliance and independence once they become part of the welfare system.
Romney is determined and capable of turning things around, giving women, men and all people in America the chance to become self sufficient and pursue happiness, if they are willing to work hard. Nobody achieves success by depending on the govt to support your needs, whether it is contraception, health care or otherwise....most often the more dependent you become, the less free you become and less capable you become of achieving success. Poverty than becomes a vicious cycle. People living on Indian reservations can attest to this...the govt subsidizes them and gives them land to live on, yet they are unable to come out of poverty.
These women will share their experiences and knowledge of Mitt Romney from a personal, professional and political view. They are women from all political parties including Republican, Democrat and Independents. They believe in America and believe Romney is capable of leading this country out of this economic recession/depression because they have experienced how he leads, makes decisions and how he treats women and cares for others.
It is my hope more women will become involved politically and become more aware of what is really going on in our political system. I used to think politics and the news were boring, until I became more involved and learned more and more about Obama when he was running in 2008. Since then, I have become actively involved and engaged in what is going on in the world, especially nationally and how it will affect my future and that of my children's and their children's future. As women, we must stand up for our children's future, because they can't speak for themselves and can't vote. We have to make wise choices and vote for those who will help Americans prosper by giving them a hand up, not a handout!
Here is an excerpt of the BlogHer post:
Frankly, we were completely, totally, absolutely fed up. That’s what we told a reporter from the Milwaukee Sentinel today who asked us why a group of female executives are traveling the country telling women about our former boss Mitt Romney....
....Amazingly, most women don’t know that Mitt had women at his side helping him turn around the Olympics in Salt Lake and fix the economy in Massachusetts. It doesn’t surprise me because I know how Mitt puts together his team. He hires the strongest talent he can find, so naturally he ends up with a lot of women. Mitt says he hires people who will “go through walls” to get the job done; the women who have worked with him over the years definitely fit that description. I worked with him for nine years and can tell you that my colleagues in Salt Lake and Massachusetts are as talented and incredible as any group of women in America.
Mitt was recognized every year he was Governor for having more women in Cabinet and senior positions than any other Governor in the country. Women made up half Mitt’s cabinet. Women were at the heart of the economic team he put together to create jobs, cut red-tape and streamline regulations and permitting. He personally chose and campaigned for his Lt. Governor – Kerry Healey – a hard-working, gracious, accomplished woman. His Chief of Staff, Beth Myers, was at the table with him giving advice and counsel throughout his administration – and she has continued to do that in the years since, as campaign manager for his 2008 campaign and as senior strategist in the campaign this time.
Analysis- Sunset Strip bookie Charlie Katz suspected the feds had bugged his apartment. The Fourth Amendment states Prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and sets out requirements for search warrants based on probable cause. His court case then ended his conviction because of the Fourth Amendment. This is constituional because FBI agents planted a recording device without a warrant.
I agree with the bookie case he had his rights violated but for the police sargent if you are using a device paid for by the state or company you are working for they should have the right to browse through your messages.
