Long week

Well with work, I have not had much time to post here.

First thing:
http://www.theneworleanschannel.com/news/4638746/detail.html
As a parishoner of Our Lady of Lourdes I know David and was shocked to read this. If you read further down, in response to Tiffany Gonzales, you don’t know shit.

Not much to report as far as bills in congress go, but the big news is the Supreme Court. Last week, they voided the fifth admendment. “No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property with out due process of law.” Life went out the door in 1973 and property went out the door last week. The Supreme Court ruled that local governments can sieze private land for private development. 10 state government will protect their citizens from this. Hopefully this will be overturned. We are one step closer to communism. One of the requirements for communism to succeed is for private property (as well as government and religion) to be eliminated.

Someone’s response: http://wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=45029 A developer wants to build a hotel on Justice David Souter’s property. Liberty has a verty wide range.

On Monday, the Surpreme Court split two Ten Commandments cases. Could be better, could be worse. In short they said it is ok in a historical purpose but not a religious purpose.

Also on Monday, the Supreme Court sent the MGM vs. Grokster case back to a lower court. The RIAA and MPAA are celebrating. Members of Congress, such as Orin Hatch (Republican – Utah) and Patrick Leahy (Democrat – Vermont) were pleased with the ruling. http://news.zdnet.com/2100-9588_22-5764787.html So was George W. Bush. This will be a big blow to technological innovation and as a information technologist, I don’t think this is good. The EFF said though that this could be worse. Please support the EFF to help protect of digital liberty. http://www.eff.org/

I don’t like the Democrats filibustering the juducial nominees but one of the objections most of them had to some of Bushes nominees (besides the fact they are pro-life) is that they are too pro-corporate which I agree they are. Bush wants to nominate justices like Scalia and Thomas who interpret the Constitution as it was originally written. It was not written to give corporations an advantage over actual persons. However, if John Kerry had won, things would be worse on social issues and about the same on corporate issues. Renquist is probably going to retire soon. Hopefully Bush will make a good pick but I won’t hold my breath.

If you care about your property vote for the Constitution or Libertarian Parties. If you value Life more than Liberty than vote for the Constitution Party; if you value Liberty more, vote for the Libertarian Party. (Hoping for Ron Paul, Roy Moore, or Pat Buchanan to run for President in 2008.)

Well for some good news: Robin and I are planning on getting married on July 15, 2006. However, a lot can change before that (renting a reception hall mainly). LSU is going good. bBlog .7.5 is out, but I have not upgraded yet.
