Jkofsky, my point (and Madison's) was that when the Federal government starts using the commerce clause to expand the perview of it's powers beyond the carefully stated intent of the founders, who wrote the Federalist Papers to convince the states to ratify the new constitution, if completely vitiates all of the clauses that were crafted to maintain a balance of power between the states and the Federal Government. The best example I can think of was a case in the 1930's shortly after FDR illegally expanded the power of the Federal Govt. and placed price controls on agricultural products.

In this case a farmer grew some wheat on his own land strictly for his family's use. The Feds decided that they had the power to control even this "personal use" wheat under the guise of interstate commerce because this little patch of grain left unregulated would have the effect of lowering the government mandated price by causing the farmers family not to have to buy the wheat and upsetting the price of grain in other states.



You know what they say about letting the camel put his nose into the tent. VWW

What's so funny? I'd bet you that either Og or Nog would make a better candidate than those you'll see running in 2008!

My motto is "90 at 90". Slamming into a whacking great tree at 90mph on your Supersport at age 90, beer and a .454 in your saddlebags, is the way to go!

The filth, the stench of being alive on this planet of self righteously indignant *****s, thief's and the generally emotionally disturbed control freaks seems to permeate from the air surrounding the bar itself, and it makes me wonder why a supposed intellectual would bring his presence here. HAA ! Damn must be the spirit of the man spinning free, brushing past my last open synaptic cleft. Me thinks I do feel him na ? Just the breeze of the oversized dust incrusted fan as she.....

Why he wouldn´t have done the stuff himself? Moral grounds? Health concerns? Didn´t want to disappoint his parents? Maybe he just wanted to be a good example for the American youth.

Hemingway described a good martini as one part of gin and having an opened bottle of vermouth in the same room.
