I Like the 14th Amendment

What is conservative about always wanting to change the constitution?

By the way, why is out-of-state tuition allowed under the 14th amendment?  Any legal scholars out there?

14th Amendment

Amendment XIV

Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


How to Write the Hebrew Letters

The site Byron found has a link on how to write the letters: http://www.ancient-hebrew.org/7_handwriting.html.  See also the link there to the site Hebrew for Christians.  Note the links on “Hebrew for Christians” to the Shema and other Jewish Prayers.  The Amidah or Shemoneh Esrei is historically a very important prayer.  There are audio links for these prayers, along with the Hebrew text, transliteration, and translation.  The transliteration system used in sites like this may not be exactly the same as the system scholars use, but it gives you some idea of the pronunciation.

Pro-Life/Pro-Gun/Anti-Immigrant Primary

So, who should I vote for in this Tuesday’s primary?

The candidate who’s going to “stick it to Pelosi and Obama”? Or the one who is endorsed by Sara Palin.  Or the doctor who is going to repeal health care reform?  Or the one who accuses his opponent of wanting to abolish the constitution by taking away the constitutional right of “our children under the age of 17 to own certain firearms”?

Or the one who is going to balance the budget by cutting taxes and laying off teachers and fire fighters?

Or the one who accuses his opponent of wanting to educate the children of illegal immigrants?

Or the one who is going to eliminate all taxes, all regulations, social security, and medicare?

The one who’s not one of those “weak-kneed Republicans, but a real conservative”?  Or the one who is going to protect us from voter fraud by requiring us all to carry photo ID at all times?

So many interesting choices.
