Sex, political scandal, and delicious martinis.

And it's only Month 2 of the Obamistration. Sure, the title is a shameless cry for some shallow new readers. Don't forget, I threatened to start blogging about designer purses and mixed drinks in 2009. While I'll have to read up on those things before I post, check this list out. It's off the cuff. Yeah, I know. There's nothing else to do it Alaska at the moment, except get pregnant.

EIGHT STATES NOW DECLARING SOVEREIGNTY!!


Several states have recently appealed to the 10th and/or the 9th Amendments to assert their state rights over federal government.

These amendments state:

Amendment 9 - Construction of Constitution. Ratified 12/15/1791.
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment 10 - Powers of the States and People. Ratified 12/15/1791. Note
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Are we seeing a trend?

I'd like to see Texas and Idaho on this list. Whatchyougot?

Thanks to George Dewey for compiling this info.

Unrelated hysteria: last night I dreamed I was on a crippled Navy boat with an Air Force sergeant and some friendly ghosts. We came under attack by a Chinese submarine launching torpedos at us. Miraculously, the ghosts saved us by helping the boat drift to shore while we were busy trying to inflate our lifevests by mouth. I think this dream has something to do with the stimulus bill being volleyed in the Senate.

In a previous nightmare, I had the sense I was being followed. Every time I turned around, there was Barack Obama not more than three feet away with his hands in his pockets, smiling. He followed me everywhere. I suspect this dream has something to do with our nation's impending fall into Communism. Barry was my "big brother" in this nightmare...always looking out for me--I mean, always watching my every move.

There is the Republic of Texas secession movement, though it's not as strong as it was during the mid-'90s.

President Obama was walking behind you waiting for you to pony up some more money for all the wonderful programs in the "stimulus" bill.

re: Anonymous

Sometimes the best thing to do is to shine a light on what's going on that isn't so great. I find your Old Testament reference interesting given the tone of your comment -- who was more adept at decrying the excesses of the people or their leaders than OT prophets?

I'm not saying that KJ is on par with Isiah (although I'm quite certain she looks better in a cocktail dress), but to criticize her for using her own blog to point out the excesses, hypocrisy, and incompetence of the current administration smacks of the self-righteousness of which you are accusing her.

In my opinion, your criticism would be better directed at those who seek to infringe upon our liberties, not those who oppose them.
