Federal Judge: U.S. Constitution Is Outdated, Judges Should Stop Studying It

If the Judge holds no allegiance to the Constitution what value do his rulings have? Does he not take an oath to up hold the Constitution?  How does he decide his rulings, whim? Whatever morality or definition of the law that floats through his mind that particular day?

This is a legitimate question to which I am sure some of our readers have the answer. Judge Posner must have a stated philosophy, he is considered by many to be one of the most influential legal thinkers around today.

Kremlin Gets Flashback of Soviet Collapse in Brexit Fallout

As we said in an earlier post, the guys running the show in Eastern Bloc countries weren’t happy when the Berlin Wall came down. Likewise the apparatchiks of various sorts deeply embedded in and often reliant on the European Union system have had heart attacks in the face of Brexit.

Brexit is not on par with the collapse of communism however. The end of the Cold War was more than surprising, or even mind blowing,

Hawaii Becomes First State To Indiscriminately Put All Legal Gun Owners On FBI Criminal Watch List

Hawaii is an odd place. Smack dab in the middle of the world’s largest ocean it has been said that Hawaii is as close to the developing world as one can come (in some respects) and still be in the 50 United States. It has weird politics. (From which our current president politically sprouted it should be noted.) It has a strong Leftward tilt in many ways. The Communist Party of Hawaii of the 1940s and 1950s was arguably the strongest of the communist parties in the USA.

Gary Johnson: UK rejected ‘crony capitalism’ with Brexit

Yep.

(From The Hill)

“The EU has, for some time, been pulling Britain down a path to unsustainable entitlements and away from the opportunities the free market offers. That voters rejected that path is not surprising.”

He also pushed back against experts who claim that the move will lead to disaster for the U.K. economy.

“The sky is not falling, and when the dust settles, Britain’s decision may very well prove to be a pivotal event in the reshaping of global relationships and trade that will,

Of course the establishment is freaking out over Brexit. What did you expect?

On Friday the world changed. Brexit became reality. The old order was dealt a serious and very public blow. The “establishment” defined by the big banks, the big corporations, and big government was shocked. They couldn’t believe it. How could it be that Britons rejected the system they had spent so many years constructing, a system from which they the cronies had greatly profited?

The media likewise continues to howl in an almost existential bay at the great political wheel in the sky.

California’s skyrocketing housing costs, taxes prompt exodus of residents

If it weren’t for the clueless government and traffic why would anyone leave?

The only reasons many people have stuck around as long as they have is because the weather in much of California is fantastic and because one can drive from orange groves to world class or close to world class skiing in 2 hours. (In theory.) One can put up with a lot when it’s 75 degrees, sunny, with low humidity. I know I could.

But there are limits.

Charlie Rangle says he “deserves” to be protected by guns, You do not however (VIDEO)

There are perfectly reasonable reasons why there are well armed people who should be protecting the Capitol. However, Rangle’s statement reflects clearly the 2 tiered (multitiered?) system in this country. Cronies at the top. The great unwashed (and in Rangle’s hope, unarmed) throngs below.

Part of a crony society is such a tiered system. The cronies, the connected, have a certain group of rules they think that they live by. For the rest of the citizenry, those who don’t suffer from Potomac Fever,

Oliver Stone slams tech giants accusing them of “collaborating” with the government, calls it “form of fascism”

Oliver Stone is not my favorite guy in the world. He has said and done a number of things with which I strongly do not not agree. However he is a hell of a director and Wall Street and Platoon rank in my personal all time top 20 movies. And he is absolutely correct about the cozy relationship between some tech companies, particularly Google (which has visited the White House far more than any other company during Obama’s presidency) and the government.

Baby boomers still get their “news” from TV (Infographic)

TV news is terrible. MSNBC, Fox, almost all of it is ridiculous and just feels like propaganda these days. (I mean, Brian Williams is back on TV. ) This is one of the reasons why TV news has been abandoned by so many. I can’t remember for instance the last time I watched a broadcast of a “nightly news” show. (Maybe when I was visiting my mom earlier this year.) However, older folks continue to cling to the boob tube as a legitimate source of news.
