Now that the Constitution is all the rage and in vogue, please allow me dear readers, to throw my worthless two cents into the mix. And may I add and assure you dear readers that in this day and age of the excessive, statist, liberal progressive, big government devaluation and debasement of our currency; especially so with its current round of devaluation, that my worthless two cents, in fact and indeed, any two cents at all, is now barely worth a fraction of a cent, let alone two whole cents.
Nevertheless, this article is not about the arcane minutiae of currency manipulation or “the Fed” or monetary policy et al, ad nauseam. Which admittedly makes my foregoing comments rather snide, smarmy and gratuitously flippant and facetious and sarcastic too — well, guilty as charged. Just couldn’t help myself cause I just love to annoy the hell out of the editors here. (Some of whom I must surmise will respond with a very stern and severe admonition “we are not amused.”)
Rather, this article is about the Constitution and in particular, Article I, Section 10 and its seeming significance and importance in the Arizona controversy surrounding SB 1070, Judge Bolton’s ruling on it, and the Obama administration’s consequent demonization of the state of Arizona; and even more incredibly, of President Obama and Attorney General Holder, of their waging a legalistic and litigious “war” against that state. I think one proper, apt and accurate word for this is “unprecedented” while yet another might be reasonably offered as simply “lunatic.” But the phrase “it’s so liberal-progressive, intellectually, academically and professorially f...ing smart, it’s f...ing stupid” might also suffice as well.
But why now, why I am addressing this issue at this point in time? Hasn’t it already been decided — sort of? Well yes, but just last night I was perusing the Constitution; I do that from time to time you know (which proves without any doubt whatsoever, reasonable or otherwise, what a true intellectual weirdo/geek/nerd/dweeb/idiot/moron I truly am). At any rate, when I came across Section 10 of Article I, I saw something which aroused and greatly piqued my curiosity (in fact, it hit me like a veritable lightning bolt/ton of bricks).
Eureka I said to myself, because if one goes to its last and third paragraph, one will see that it clearly states:
“That no State shall, without the Consent of Congress,” blah-blah-blah-blah, “...engage in War, UNLESS actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”
