FOLKS, IF YOU ARE NOT FOLLOWING THIS YOUNG MAN, I ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO SO! HE OBVIOUSLY USES HIS HEAD FOR SOMETHING BESIDES A HAT RACK. I don't agree with EVERYTHING he posts, but I LOVE THESE opinions by Countable member Jamison:
"This is already allowed by the Constitution. Many of you claim to be against this, calling it "court stripping" and "unconstitutional," but in reality it is very constitutional. It's true, we do have the "three branches" for a reason and the "checks and balances" were made to limit all forms of government, but if that's all you can cite as evidence for your case then congratulations, you have the knowledge of any 6th grade history/civics student who paid adequate attention. Article III Section 2 of OUR constitution states "the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make." This means that Congress sets the guidelines that the Supreme Court must follow. To be honest, the only reason that the third branch is allowed to see any cases is because congress allows it. So when you attack this bill or say that this is an over reach, you're the one being unconstitutional."
Jamison, you're smarter than a lot of "adults" using this app! I foresee a great future for you. :-)
Other notable opinions (IMO) by Jamison:
"This is great! Our nation deserves a military that no other country's can compare to. Liberals fail to realize that it is because we have a large military that we are afforded the privileges we have. Without a proper defensive, and God willing offensive force, we wouldn't be able to invest so much interest in the home front. We have the ability to argue over education rather than be scared of North Korea, we have the ability to bicker about taxes instead of running from tyrannical occupation, etc. It is only with a truly great military that we can forward ourselves into the future and secure safety and prosperity for our future generations."
VERY ASTUTE, JAMISON! ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE ONLY 17 YEARS OLD?! I also admire your knowledge and use of proper English grammar and spelling!
"Trump's executive order is not unconstitutional. In fact, it is clearly stated in United States Code Title 8 Chapter 12 sub chapter II part II section 1182 that admission to the United States can be barred to any alien who could be deemed a threat to the United States. We did the same thing to China in 1882 because there were too many Chinese immigrants flowing in. I really wish people would do research on what is legal and what is not before joining the liberal hive mind."
"I live in what used to be a major coal producing area. What the Obama administration has done to our industry is horrific. Our area thrived on producing coal to fuel our nation and the fact that liberals and environmentalists demonize it is gut wrenching. Thousands and thousands of coal miners were laid off due to regulations just like these. How can we expect to "cure" in employment when we're putting our own citizens out of work? I've seen coal miners' children go without presents for Christmas and without a meal for Thanksgiving. Most of you are blind when it comes to this topic. You're more than happy to save the environment, but if you saw the consequences it has you'd think twice. So let me ask you, is it more important to create a job so that a miner can feed his family and stop taking government handouts, or is it more important to save a fish or two in a stream?"
"This politically correct movement has got to stop. I mean, changing laws and altering all of America's vocabulary because getting called a name upsets you? That's just childish. Aren't people supposed to grow up and develop a thicker skin? Plus, oriental is a term referring to somebody who looks as if they are or is from the Orient. The Orient is simply another term for "the East," in relation to Europe. If somebody told me, "You look like a European." Then it wouldn't bother me in the slightest. That's where my family was from and I'm proud of that."
