States Rights

It does my good old boy soul wonders for the Left in this country to discover the ninth and tenth Amendments even if what they want doesn't flic my bic. Of course it took them having some skin in the game to get their support.

Enlightened self interest! Now there's a thought!

Colorado voters in November will decide whether limited possession of marijuana for any purpose should be legalized.

If passed, the initiative would make Colorado the only state in the nation to legalize marijuana for recreational use. On Monday, the measure became the first to qualify for the state's November ballot when the Colorado Secretary of State's Office announced its supporters had turned in enough valid signatures

Hat Tip to Talk Left!


"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

“It’s the presumption that Obama knows how all these industries ought to be operating better than people who have spent their lives in those industries, and a general cockiness going back to before he was president, and the fact that he has no experience whatever in managing anything. Only someone who has never had the responsibility for managing anything could believe he could manage just about everything.” - Thomas Sowell in Reason Magazine
Amendment 9 - Construction of Constitution. Ratified 12/15/1791.

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment 10 - Powers of the States and People. Ratified 12/15/1791.

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.
