… An Amazing Stance [#Brandeis Cowardice]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 21st,2014

.. it appears that the faculty at Brandeis University was among those folks who were part of the movement to disinvite Ayaan Hirsi Ali from her honorary degree and their commencement ceremony …

.. I have made a decision not to reprint any of the drivel on their petition . Yes , I have read it , and in detail . I find it to be offensive , misogynist , anti – women , and anti – historic . Dr. Ali is a woman of courage and accomplishment . First as a survivor of the hell of Somalia , then as an academic and an activist when elected to the parliament in the Netherlands …

.. Now we are lucky to have her here in the United States as a citizen . She is continuing her courageous work of bringing the truth to the forefront , and is very well worthy of the honour …

… What Judge would Do This ? …

This judge has forgotten about pending judicial precedent , such as Heller and McDonald v City of Chicago . So , this activist judge allowed the new law to stand …

.. what is amazing is that these activist judges fail to read the Constitution , specificially the Second Amendment . They also tend to forget that the Bill of Rights , taken as a whole , is a body of law that is desgined to protect Individual rights , not collective rights , such as those of groups of so – called protected classes .

That shoots down actions taken by those who try to interpret the Second Amendment to act a collective right . It is not that at all . It is a protection of the rights of the individual against the government , not the government against the indivual . So act to preserve the rights of the individual , and vacate this idiotic ruling …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,February 2nd,2014

.. these folks , yes I know , they are ex – convicts .

.. but , at least , give them a break , they are trying to make a lawful fresh start of things on the right side . I am still a law and order hardcase , but where folks are trying , we should give them a break or two , maybe ..

.. these folks are supporters of POTUS (Obama) , and they look treally pissed . More than that , they look really disappointed …

.. this one is from earlier this week . FoxNews (Megyn Kelly , the KellyFile) covered this on her show on Friday (01/31/2014) . You have to admire their renewed work ethic and determination , but you can understand their frustration . They expected more , much more out of Obama , and he has been a great disappointment to a great many people . He has been what I expected , to be honest …
