Why the Supreme Court’s Arizona ruling, SB 1070, is judicial tyranny ! Make no mistake, our founding fathers have never granted a power to Congress to regulate aliens within the various State borders. What they did grant to Congress is the power to set the requirements by which an alien may become a citizen of the united States. And if there is any dispute concerning the limited power granted to Congress regarding the "Rule of Naturalization", let our founding fathers speak for themselves.

Congress may point out a uniform "Rule of Naturalization",

but cannot say what shall be the effect of that "Naturalization", as it respects the particular States.

Congress cannot say that foreigners,"Naturalized", under a general law, shall be entitled to privileges which the States withhold from native citizens.

Just about everyone in Washington was wrong about what the Supreme Court would do yesterday on the Obamacare case. Well, we were sort of right but in the end we were wrong.

First of all the official title of the case is:


Who knew that? Put your hand down, you didn't know it until today, either.

I, along with everyone else, believed the Court would rule the Individual Mandate to be an Unconstitutional extension...
