Loony letter response

From the Brunswick News:

Letters to the editor are opinions that sometimes cross over the line in reason and judgment. This includes mine as well. One such letter recently submitted by Monica Smith of St. Simons Island — who must be a U.S. constitutional authority with her certainty of its interpretation — reaches a new plateau of loony. She as well as many of our black-robed politicians have amended, twisted and distorted our constitution to meet their own agenda of how the world, should be.

The original Constitution had only 4,543 words, counting the signatures. Since the states signing on to be part of the United States, our document has been amended 27 times and now has 7,541 words, making it still the smallest constitution in the world for larger countries. Perhaps many of The News’ readers connect the same dots I do in that many so called constitutional decisions are reached which have no correlation whatsoever to do with our founding document.

Mrs. Smith’s polluted thinking aside, she is more than likely correct that someone will challenge that legal and illegal immigrants — in fact the rest of the world — are protected by the constitution. It matters little to those who think like Mrs. Smith that the results are bankruptcy, loss of sovereignty, etc. It is thoughts such as those expressed by Mrs. Smith that are destroying our country — once the greatest man has ever known. Too bad.

SNAP, etc

Sidney Lanier says:
Sidney Lanier SNAP is a subsidy program for food producers and distributors. A regular subsidy to individual households, as Switzerland is proposing and as both Nixon and McGovern supported in the ’72 election, would be more equitable and efficient. But, that would violare the fundamental prejudice that people have no money because they do not know how to manage it. Which of course is contrary to the reality that all dollars come out of the U.S. Treasury and, if people have none, it is because they were given none from the public purse and have not been clever enough to steal some. See, the problem with paper and electronic dollars is that they are inedible, undrinkable, unwearable and non-protective. Indeed, unlike the gold and silver, of which they used to be made, they cannot even be turned into artifacts or baubles which someone might value more. A cross of gold would be more useful than a pallet of Benjamins. Personally, I think anyone with an eleemosynary impulse should start carrying some Benjamins and hand them out more or less at random to people who will spend them and prime the economic pump. The dollar’s current has been slowing since about 1991. See that graph?

Arrogation, abrogation and abandonment

It seems a pervasive pattern in Glynn County: private citizens use, abuse and otherwise arrogate public lands as if they were their own; public officials such as the local government, school board and sundry authorities abrogate their responsibility to maintain the property and then, when it seems convenient or financially profitable, the usurpers petition for their arrogation to be certified by abandonment.
