The federal government is only authorized to do things that are specifically listed in the Constitution. Amendment X of the US Constitution 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.

Can Defamation Suits Be Used To Stifle Free Speech?

The average American can be forgiven for assuming that he or she can freely criticize the government and government personnel without fear of being sued by the government for libel or slander. This is indeed true most of the time. But it doesn’t mean that government agents with hurt feelings won’t sometimes try suing private citizens who have the temerity to […]

Supreme Court Hacks?

The Supreme Court is the highest Court in the land.  The most respected Court in the land.  The most influential Court in the land.   But only if they act in such a manner.  The Court has recently had to defend itself by insisting that the court isn’t as partisan an institution as many outside observers make it out to be. “My goal today is to […]

Education Law Without Needing Education

Oregon’s governor recently signed legislation that allows high school students to graduate without proving they can read, write, or do math.  Oregon Senate Bill 744 (pdf) states that students “may not be required to show proficiency in Essential Learning Skills as a condition of receiving a high school diploma” in the next three school years. “This 2021 Act being necessary for the immediate preservation […]

False Report

In our legal system innocence is presumed.  The concept of believing the accuser creates an impossible task of proving the lack of guilt, because there is always going to be a void of evidence where something did not occur.  It creates the perception of guilt on everyone and begs the verse: He that is without sin among you, let him […]
