The Persecution of Mary Jane

Actually, 'twas during the tenure of the evil Franklin Delano Roosevelt that the decision was made. The decision was to have the Supreme Court that FDR kept in his hip pocket to declare any transaction, whether in any way interstate or not--even the sale of milk, for example, from a Norco dairy farm to a Santa Ana grocery store--subject to Interstate Commerce regulations.

This was all reaffirmed Friday by the Supreme Court that GWB keeps in his hip pocket as they decided that the possession of marijuana for medical purposes, legalized by referenda in California and several other states shall be declared illegal under Interstate Commerce rules.

I don't like the fact that the Supremes, not to mention all the other state and federal appeals courts, can look at questionable decisions made by questionable judges over the over two centuries of the existence of the Republic, and use them as precedents to make all manner of unConstitutional decisions that mainly benefit the government and the politicians. It's pretty clear to me that we'd all be better off if these rattlebrained judges were constrained to simply and only consult the Constitution and its Amendments for guidance in deciding Constitutional questions. If any of you legal eagle knows exactly why judges were ever allowed to make decisions based on the mistakes of other judges, I'd appreciate enlightenment.

Meanwhile, thousands are going to suffer and, perhaps, die because of one erroneous decision of six of nine self-important idiots in black dresses.

Having made an exhaustive search of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, I find no language that allows our Representatives to in any way limit that which we voluntarily ingest. I'm sorry. It just ain't in there. No amount of study will bring such a moronic notion into view.

Even if it did, well, everyone who's paying attention knows that man's rights don't come from the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the courts, the President, our Representatives on any level, nor even from a majority vote. Man's rights exist in his nature as a rational being and cannot be taken away except by means of an initiation of force by another.

Really, it's no more complicated than that.

They've killed Freedom! Those bastards!
