What Would I Have Done?
A PLRI terrorist attack on a French Train was stopped by three Americans. The terrorist survived the attempt, and now he claims that he is not a terrorist, but a simple robber who just happened to find an AK-47, a pistol and a box cutter knife in a park and decided to flash back to 1880’s and the American Old west to rob a train. He failed in his attempt, but he is dumfounded that anybody would confuse little ‘ol him with an actual Islamic terrorist. The Americans have been awarded the French Legion of Honor, but it also leave all of us with the question: what would I have done?
North Korea has surged some fifty of its submarines, causing a great deal of alarm and unease, even as the Chinese stock market collapses and takes other markets down with it. Over the weekend, Dave finally caught a documentary he’s been waiting to see for some time, and that film, Dennis Rodman’s Big Bang in Pyongyang, leaves him wondering what we might be talking about today instead, if Dennis Rodman didn’t have a drinking problem?
The Birthright Citizenship debate continues. Fine. Some of those who didn’t actually listen to what Dave said about the practice continue to bombard him with the opinion that “under the jurisdiction thereof” means a foreign power. Which is fine. Two Supreme Court Justices agreed with them (Fuller and Harlan). And lost, 7-2. That doesn’t mean that we cannot change the practice, but before we do, we better make sure that we follow the Constitutional Procedure for doing so and we’d better make sure that we fully understand the opinion and what effects it might have to reverse it. But mainly, we need to stop assuming that a dissent is the law. It’s not.
