    Not much here but there may be a warrant out for me in Greenville County, SC. I flipped on the local Fox news (located in Greenville) last night for the usual update while I was dining. The Fox channel is usually pretty good around 4:30 PM and it’s the usual car chase, shooting or stabbing amongst the baboons or the fat white tattooed white trash. But the news Bimbo opened with: “President Trump is going to abolish the 14th amendment with an executive order and the ACLU says he can’t, yada, yada, yada”. OK I did have a few small glasses of white wine before I found a telephone # for the news station. When my call was answered it was by a young female who’s tone was: “Ya, I gotta listen to your bullshit cause it’s my job, but make it quick”. I went off about Trump only enforcing the 14th amendment and kids of illegals were not entitle to automatic citizenship. She go snarky, I got pissed. After a few words were exchanged we departed the conversation with mutual “Fuck-You’s”. I can’t believe how either fucking stupid these news-people are or how fucking outright ballsy they are thinking a large number of Americans actually believe their concocted crap.

    Bogside, don’t let the rhetoric get you down. The solution to this problem will not
    call for a new amendment or the destruction of the 14th Amendment. This is
    all about interpretation, something that can be done with a simple Supreme
    Court decision with a narrow focus on “And subject to the jurisdiction thereof.”

    US v Wong Kim Ark (1898) involving an Asian born in America to parents who were
    living in the United States legally. The court ruled that since the parents were in
    American legally, he was granted birthright citizenship.

    Plyler v Doe (1982) which held that a Texas law denying K-12 funding for children
    of illegal aliens was unconstitutional. This was a case of pure judicial activism.
    Neither of these two cases was on point regarding birthright citizenship. As far
    as I know these are the only two cases that even touched on the 14th Amendment.

    It is time for the 5 constructionists on the Supreme Court to earn their money!

    I hear ya, Leonard. It’s gonna take more time to correct this obvious interpretation however than necessary because of the Liberal university brainwashed under 60 year old asshole Liberals. Wouldn’t it be simpler and quicker to just kill ’em all?

    Got to thinking (kind of scary, but now and then I do think)… While it is my sincere desire that the conservatives retain control of both the house and senate, should they not do so in either or both cases, I actually have no plans to run outside and scream at the sky in some primal fashion. My life will go on as usual, though I may bitch about it awhile. The dimwits, on the other hand, will be screaming so loud, the rest of us will probably go deaf. Kinda like the day Trump won in 2016. Frankly, I expect an armed and violent reaction from those assholes. All that Kavanaugh stuff was child’s play compared to the reaction they’ll all have losing yet again. It may sound like quality entertainment is lurking just around the corner, but these assholes will make the Steve Scalise shooting look like a walk in the park. Hopefully they will tangle with someone who’s armed and prepared for them.
