Drugs, sex and the supreme court

June 28, 2015

P.1In the news today June 19, 2020 the supreme court of the United States ruled that no states could make the sale or use of marijuana illegal. This is based on the 14th amendment that says it would be discriminatory because it is legal in many other states. This ruling harkens back to 2015 when the court ruled that states have no right to deny a marriage license to gay couples when in some states gay marriage is legal.

Yes it seems that another of Pandora’s boxes has been opened and the unintended effects will continue to ripple for decades to come. If you have been following my postings you know that I do not care what lifestyle ‘you’ choose to live just as long as you do not try to have me accept it. This is after all America and the ultimate basis for our nation is ‘freedom’. Freedom to believe in whatever God one chooses, freedom to think and say whatever we want and freedom to not accept what we believe is morally or politically wrong.

Most of us are aware that the supreme court was wrong because in article ten of the Constitution, it states “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 its people.” So if a State like Texas bans marriage to any couple other than a man and a woman it can not be overruled by the supreme court.

Than again the supreme court also ruled that the federal government can force us to buy medical insurance or be penalized, when the Constitution does not state, where it enumerates the duties of the federal government, the establishment of a federal health system.

They say looking back at the good old days

were in reality not as good as we think they were.

But in the good old days

our politicians did not openly lie to us or

our President did not apologize to other nations and

our belief in God and love of country

was more important

than our acceptance of gay marriage.

    i know i’ve said this before, but it’s worth saying again. the obama legacy is going to be that he annihilated state rights and decimated the constitution.

    Hey Pete – why is there no ‘Like’ button on the template you use for your blog? Been meaning to ask this for a while. We finally received rain overnight; 0.28″ and we needed it badly!! Only two days with ‘trace’ amounts – unmeasurably small – in the previous 17 days. Average precip for June in Talkeetna is 2.6″; with last night’s rain we’re at 1.55″ with just one day left in June so once again we’ll be well below ‘normal’ for precipitation. Since January we haven’t seen a single month that hit its ‘normal’ precipitation value and most have been just half to two thirds of the typical number!!
