Is nullification authorized? The answer is “yes,” but not based on any argument I have seen so far from its proponents or opponents. From what I have seen of both sides of the argument, both sides suffer a flagrant flaw in logic. My purpose is to clear it up.
If you think the Information Age has advanced the world and is leading to the pursuit of happiness, think again. Now in my 50s, I am convinced technology is killing our spirit and setting us up for a big fall. And while I don’t consider myself a Luddite, my three children might disagree.
Recently, I watched a panel of think-tank experts debate how best to solve our country’s fiscal problems. What caught my attention was that no one so much as alluded to the unConstitutionality of any of the myriad government programs that have caused these problems.
“We’re on the verge of a great, great depression. The (Federal Reserve) knows it.” So said Peter Yastrow, market strategist for Yastrow Origer on CNBC Wednesday.

A century and a half later, America helped defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan — two nations bent on world domination and extinguishing individual liberty. The world has changed, and the war at home rages. Geographic borders no longer demarcate the saintly from the sinister.
Just when you thought no one could top John Edwards, the Terminator unveils a 10-year maidcapade that has dramatically increased Pepto-Bismol™ sales nationwide. All of a sudden, Eliot Spitzer and Bill Clinton don’t seem quite as disgusting as they once did.
Today, all across the United States of America, we take time to honor our fallen soldiers. We honor them because they chose to defend us, and they died in that defense.
