Morry, You made me laugh again! I'm remodeling my house but I could use some remodeling as well. I have worked too hard & really need some down time. I just turned on my computer for the first time in days. I hope you & yours had a good Thanksgiving. Keep on blogging! :) Pam
Thank you so much for the friend request. It is very nice to meet you and I thank you very much for your comments on my article. And I do agree 200% with your assessment of Levin's book. My article wasn't so much an endorsement of Nullification (although, who am I kidding, it was!) as it was to highlight the futility of following Mr. Levin's advice and add more amendments to the Constitution. Since we have the choice of using nullification instead of amendments, the RIGHTFUL REMEDY is nullification. Since my passion is nullification, I wanted to use the futility of Mr. Levin's plan to further promote it.
I'll be 63 God willing if I live to see Sept. 6 and never in my life time could I envision Congress just handing over it all without a fight. Like yourself, we were raised up in a 'Norman Rockwell' America where you knew your neighbor by name and slept behind unlock doors, and all you needed for a trade or sale was a handshake.
Now, your neighbor is of another dialect so you can't understand a word he says, the doors AND windows are barred, alarm system engaged and your .357 magnum loaded near your pillow(for now) and you better have a contract, witnessed and notorized. God have mercy.
Obama does not like our flag, constitution or anthem so I assume he as dictator in time will rename our once great and proud country.
He must have something on all the RINOs, Speaker of the House looks like he is about to pee on himself shaking in his boots and obviously sold out to His Higness.
I am a minister from south Ms. of 43 yrs and for the last 22 months in Kabul Afghanistan supporting the troops as a civilian chaplain. Thank you Morry for stand as a patriot. My prayers are for men like yourself that some how we can delat this nonsense a little while. Blessings.
Thanks very much for your comment on the piece titled "Taking a Look at the Fed's Latest Round of Quantitative Easing." Sorry for the delay in my response.
You raise a very interesting point, and by your logic I would agree that normal metrics for measuring various components of what was our traditional economic infrastructure may no longer allow us to extrapolate reliable conclusions given the unconventional developments currently present in the broader marketplace. Considering the LDP victory in Japan and the seemingly imminent "unlimited easing" as espoused by Shinzo Abe it seems that it is not just the US economy, but the global economy that will ultimately find itself subjected to abnormal circumstances for which the "digestion" framework is ill-equipped to process. Taking for granted this dynamic, and your statements regarding consumers' resistance to abnormal price changes, it seems likely that we can eventually expect a tiered economic cycle with deflation preeminent in the products/services with relatively elastic demand while consumer staples like food, energy, etc. experience fairly dramatic price rises. This of course assumes that suppliers will eventually raise prices once they realize rising input costs are not a transient anomaly and that consumers resist rising prices on those nonessential goods/services.
Or do you perhaps expect to see deflation across-the-board until the full scope of monetary dilution has been effectively "digested" at which point we experience a 180 degree turn from deflation to inflation?
Morry, is it possible.....possible....for a state to get on a precious metal standard and still conduct business with all the rest of the states who are not? I believe some time ago, that Utah tried that, but not sure if it was only asymbolic gesture or the real deal. You may contact me, if you prefer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Go to The Constitution Study Group. At the top of the page of the left side is "The Discussion Forum". 4 or 5 discussions are listed. At the bottom right of that list it says "View all". Click on that, and you will see that there are only 49 (or 59) discussions listed. And yes! Those do all pertain to the Constitution.
