nah, my brain seems to keep lots of mostly useless crap, while the important stuff, like where i left my coffee or parked my car, leaks out immediately!  i wish they'd design a panic button for my coffee cup.  then i could find it the same way i find my car in a parking lot  :-D

SR of O = socialist republic of oregon
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

the constitution only restricts what congress can do about religion.  it does not have anything to do with what states can and can not do.  it was unconstitutional for the feds to have gone after the mormons and bigamy.  the supreme court was in error in it's ruling against polygamy.  the territories caved eventually because polygamy was an issue holding up statehood.

there is nothing in the constitution that directs states on how they handle issues of religion.  unfortunately, the courts have bought into the separation argument, and made law that restricts states rights and ignores what the constitution says.

what we need are some federal judges with brass ones.

Those laws were not only unconstitutional as the result was a Federal restriction upon religeon but was applied previous to enactment, another unconstitutional act. 
It has been said that the Supreme Court has.....become not the defender of the constitution but the mirror of the American soul at this time in history. (Paraphrased).  That comment was made prior to 1860.

About Gregoire, she won because the King County (Seattle) elections office kept finding "lost ballots" and then she found a Liberal judge who refused to invalidate ballots not located prior to the day after the election, thereby vaildating ballots located as much as 2 weeks after the election.  She won re-election because of the Bush Hatred, Obama's mezmerization, and Acorn.

Life is a school.  What have you learned?   :brian:      The greatest danger to our society is apathy, vote in every election!
