Vox Day
The water-soluble Constitution

Americans have been told that the Constitution which guarantees their unalienable rights is a living document, which changes over time depending on the current meanings of the words it contains. Recently, we have also learned that it is a water-soluble document, which dissolves any time a federal or state official declares a national emergency or even a hypothetical threat to your life. These officials are, of course, interested in nothing but helping you. The mere notion of the concept that such Constitution-overriding declarations might happen to increase their own power has never even begun thinking about entering their petty, bureaucratic little minds.

Katrina pushes Dems to edge of Clift

From Hillary Clinton on down, Democrats, who have rarely met a government program they didn't like, have been crawling out of the woodwork complaining about how the government failed the people. Will their accusations and admissions of massive government failings finally put a bullet through Hillary's utopian dream of national health care? Quite the opposite.

When Hillary and company say the government failed, they have actually stumbled on to a legitimate problem – but even a blind nut finds a squirrel once in a while. Before you think Democrats are finally starting to "get it," consider the reason the problem is being brought to our attention: so they can apply their solution. These programs simply aren't adequately funded, nor are there enough of them.
