Stop by the office up there and get a free, pro-choice, marriage equality rainbow campaign burkha.
Jones is a character out of the Doyle & Debbie Show.
It reads that Congress can exempt out from the SCOTUS jurisdiction, exceptions of its choosing. But that is just me reading the actual words.
Humpty Dumpty says to Alice in "Through the Looking Glass" said that, words are to mean whatever, "it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.'
CONSTITUTION Article Three, Section Two, Clause Two
In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make."
'The question,' said Humpty Dumpty is, 'which is to be master — that's all.'
Yes, I deliberately violated the law and contributed the enormous amount of $200 and $125 to two separate Stacey Campfield Houses campaigns, both amounts of which he returned to me, so that I could challenge the ethics reform act law on the subject of unpaid volunteer lobbyist contributions. If that is bat shit crazy so be it. But let's not let people like Aubric define the facts, let's Photoshop Campfield's picture so he looks like's some type of closeted gay villain. Whatever criticism you have against Campfield's bills if you continue using those type tactics I can guarantee you he's getting stronger with each occurrence.
Most of you don't have the slightest idea who this guy is, and it is working to his benefit.
I once asked one of my very closest friends, who has always been openly gay, why she chose not to participate in LGBT rights activities. She said, "you know it is widely believed that J. Edgar Hoover was gay, and I am certain I have nothing in common with him." Accusing Campfield of being gay is most the absurd act of self loathing conduct I've ever witnessed.
While it isn't necessary for me to defend Campfield I can assure you that the attention he is getting and the persona he has developed, is entirely the creation of paranoid knee jerk reactions by those of who have nothing better to offer than their feather boas, victim mentality gripes and putting their naked butts in kid's faces to carry out their screech campaign.
I totally disagree that Campfield's bills are idiotic. I might not agree with all of them, but he has a generally decent insight into what's going on, and the sexed up overreaction to everything he does is proof positive of how effective he is. That conduct makes most of his opponents look like bigger idiots than they accuse him of being.
If you're uncertain of the answer when your fifth grade student wants to know if its infanticide to abort the third trimester pregnancy of a surrogate mother contract, breached by a divorcing same-sex couple losing their Families First benefits, …you might be a latent conservative.
Where's the limit?
Collins: Absent fatherhood like hypocrisy has no partisan limitation. Statistically, childhood development failures, of one sort or another, have a nearly one to one correlation to absent fatherhood. If I am angry, it's because the children in Cohen's district, who suffer from the highest absent fatherhood rates in the nation do so because most of the social policies, which incidentally I believe were originally formed with all good intentions, have failed miserably. But any effort to reform them is usually opposed, just like Cohen did, by liberal Democrats, ridiculing people like me who hoped to bring the need for reform to their attention. It is only now that Black leadership, including the President, are beginning to acknowledge that there might be something wrong with the policy designs. But all along people like you Collins, have accused those of like mind with, me of being a deadbeat, misogynist, angry divorcee. When in reality you have no idea what the situation is.
So now, the illustrious Cong. Cohen find himself on the other end of some kind of a paternity issue and low and behold, he needs to use it in order to exculpate himself from appearing to be an Anthony Wiener type pervert.
But you can't handle your hero being characterized as a castrated loser. You have to stand with the people who still cannot admit that their policy positions have failed and that kids in this country are worse off than they ever were, because of them.
Learning that Steve Cohen was a father last week was the best news I could have received, because whether he likes it or not, now he is one of us.
AnglRdr: A man should not be required to have an intuition that he has impregnated a woman. We are not sperm donors, we are fathers. We should have the legal presumption of an equal right to and an equally shared responsibility for, our own children. Perhaps, if Congressman Cohen is ever sued for the back child support he would owe, which he still can be, he'll receive the very same message so many have received loud and clear.
Collins: While I have many personal misgivings and shortcomings in my life, in terms of misdeeds I will have to leave it to you to define them. I'm not certain what you're referring to but if it is the adjudication of an 2006 Ethics Reform Act violation, I purposely violated that law in order test its constitutionality in preventing unpaid issue lobbyists from contributing to candidate campaigns, which the AG declined to pursue as he'd already opined the law to be unconstitutional. I'd do it again. If you are referring to my 1997 arrest for intervening in a police action use of excessive force when I witnessed Metro cops beating an arrested suspect, I'd do that again. If you're referring to my efforts to rein in unaccountable and out of control family law judges, I'd do that all over again too.
I spent many personal hours, attempting to discuss the need for family law reform with then State Senator Steve Cohen. His arrogant and dismissive attitude of other people's challenges, (fathers in particular) was abundantly evident to everyone. All the while, deep down, he must have known he had a child. Because, not even the childless and single lawmakers treated our people with such disrespect.
Cohen has every ability to redeem himself now, by sponsoring remedial legislation in order to repair broken Federal family law policies and to come back to the State's General Assembly and make certain that we have the best that there can be to remediate the absent fatherhood crisis. Few people would be as effective. If he does, I will be the first one there to applaud him.
