jacqie, did you happen to see the world as it flew by you? Why should my tax dollars go for lap dances, liquor, gambling, etc.? It shouldn't. Except for the truly needy, this program should be eliminated. But that brings up that ugly four letter word, doesn't it? WORK
Talk about not answering a post. Do you think your tax dollar should also go to multinational oil companies to the tune of billion of dollars per year? Compared to that, welfare cheats are peanuts. But do you mention those oil guys and other corporate moochers? Noooooo.

Sure he does. Reminds one of ROGUE SCHOLAR's claim that Obama, certain of electoral defeat on November 6, had bought a $35 million (NOT 3.5 million, nooo, 35 million!) home in Hawaii. I wish Rogue would explain what he posted and favour us with his 'sure-thing" sources.

Rouge has posted so many "sure things" that were off by 180 degrees - makes me want to take him to Vegas. I'll give him $5 to bet on a game and then I'll lay 5 large against the side he chooses. After 2 days I'd be able to keep Mrs LtR in the lifestyle she deserves for much longer than either of us will need to worry about it

And what're YOU watching? Baseball-capped gun nuts, pick-ups parked outside, proudly displaying their rifles stowed in their gun racks, bubble gum packs and chewin' tabacchy on the front seat, and revelling in the sound of gunfire and tin cans flying in the air from these patriots who will repel the enemy invading the homeland with their assault rifles? Or dreaming of a WHITE House without that black guy Obama in it? Not to worry, he'll be out---in January 2017.

You must be consistent in you logic Mr. Liars. If a gun is not the culprit in and of itself then neither are food stamps.
One should be smart enough not to compare apples and oranges. AHEM, not to mention I didn't say food stamps were THE problem. Food stamps aren't the problem, just as guns are not the problem. BTW, in your mind, how do you compare a Gov. program to a private citizen owning something he purchased with his own money? Comical nonsense!

Tell one and all who you sided with in November's presidential election, specially after your famous and oft-repeated "Can you hear us coming?" . Then, find the usual excuse and profanity to show your birther ilk that you are NOT a LOSER.

<quoted text>
No, I got it, it does not matter who badly Romney will lose by in Massachusetts, he will not need Mass. to win the election. All he needs is 271 Electoral College votes and right now he looks like he will win more than 300.
This election comes down to the Independent voters in the Swing States, and nothing else. In 2000, Bush would have lost, if Al "Owl" Gore had won his home state. Sure, Romney was the governor of Mass. but he was also born in Mich. and he may lose both of those states, but in the end, it will mean nother if O'Bummer Boys gets less than 271!!!

Well, why don't you tell us? The facts are that Obama's numbers where way down. Just look at the DNC Convention in Charlotte when they cancelled the stadium event. Oh, I know, that said it was because of the chance of a storm but all the real weather guys said the chances were less than 10%!
We will see how many show up across this nation on Nov. 6th.
Enough showed up on November 6 to have Obama reelected.

<quoted text>
But our laws did not originate in the Magna Charta. Depending on your point of view it could be the Jewish holy books. But all of our current laws are based on our Constitution and had nothing to do with England.
Wrong.

As far back as in 1798, The United State Supreme Court in United States v. Worrall, 2 US 384, 394-395 (1798) recognized that our jurisprudence was based on English common law:

"When the American colonies were first settled by our ancestors, it was held, as well by the settlers, as by the judges and lawyers of England, that they brought hither, as a birth-right and inheritance, so much of the COMMON LAW, as was applicable to their local situation, and change of circumstances. But each colony judged for itself, what parts of the COMMON LAW were applicable to its new condition...."

Similarly, the court in Wheaton v. Peters , 33 US 591, 658-659 (1834)observed:

It is insisted, that our ancestors, when they migrated to this country, brought with them the English common law, as a part of their heritage. That this was the case, to a limited extent, is admitted. No one will contend, that the common law, as it existed in England, has ever been in force in all its provisions, in any state in this union. It was adopted, so far only as its principles were suited to the condition of the colonies: and from this circumstance we see, what is common law in one state, is not so considered in another. The judicial decisions, the usages and customs of the respective states, must determine, how far the common law has been introduced and sanctioned in each.

The court in Duncan v. Louisiana, 391 US 145 , 150 ,fn 14.(1968)noted our common law heritage in criminal proceedings:

The recent cases, on the other hand, have proceeded upon the valid assumption that state criminal processes are not imaginary and theoretical schemes but actual systems bearing virtually every characteristic of the common-law system that has been developing contemporaneously in England and in this country. The question thus is whether given this kind of system a particular procedure is fundamental—whether, that is, a procedure is necessary to an Anglo-American regime of ordered liberty.


The court in Smith v. Alabama, 124 U. S. 465, 478 (1888) stated in clear and concise language the common law's influence on the constitution:

"The interpretation of the Constitution of the United States is necessarily influenced by the fact that its provisions are framed in the language of the English common law, and are to be read in the light of its history."

Finally, as recent as 2000, the court in Carter v. United States, 530 US 255, 266 (2000) stated:

We have not hesitated to turn to the COMMON LAW for guidance when the relevant statutory text does contain a term with an established meaning at common law.
