And, the people of the State of CT, in their ultimate wisdom, have given their legislature unlimited authority--except for those few prohibitions set forth in Article One, the Declaration of Rights.
"ARTICLE THIRD.
OF THE LEGISLATIVE DEPARTMENT.
SEC. 1. The legislative power of the state shall be vested in two distinct houses or branches; the one to be styled the senate, the other the house of representatives, and both together the general assembly."
That's all it says. As I said previously, I was surprised by it's brevity and lack of specificity.
Great and what facts do you rely on that the Constitution as amended in 1818 is it?, is applicable to me?

My favorite:
ARTICLE FIRST
SEC. 2. All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit; and they have at all times an undeniable and indefeasible right to alter their form of government in such manner as they may think expedient.
http://www.cslib.org/constitutionalamends/con...
The constitution is irrelevant anyway, 1) there is no right to abolish government
2) Ct superior court judges routinely ignore the fact that juries have the right to judge the facts AND THE LAW.
3) The right to trial by jury is consistently ignored in ct courts
4) there is no freedom of the press when it comes to a public place like a ct court.

The list goes on.

Have you ever smelled a factory pig farm? It's horrible. You can smell it for miles.

That's why we have zoning and planning laws. So that I can't open a pig farm next to you.

I don't know what you are talking about. You said that the legislature could only act within the state constitution. Your state constitution gives the CT General Assembly unlimited legislative power with the exception of a few prohibition in the declaration of rights.

We live in a society where the people have instituted laws. The people of CT have decided that their legislature should have very few restrictions. You live in CT; The CT Constitution is applicable to you. You, yourself, set forth the parameters under which the CT legislature operates--that they must comply with the state constitution. Well, it doesn't take much in CT for the General Assembly to comply with the state constitution.

A photograph released by the White House appeared to show
President Barack Obama and his aides in the situation room
watching the action as it unfolded. In fact they had little
knowledge of what was happening in the compound.
In an interview with PBS, Mr Panetta said: "Once those teams
went into the compound I can tell you that there was a time
period of almost 20 or 25 minutes where we really didn't know
just exactly what was going on. And there were some very tense
moments as we were waiting for information.
"We had some observation of the approach there, but we did not
have direct flow of information as to the actual conduct of the
operation itself as they were going through the compound."

"The Daily Telegraph is a daily morning broadsheet conservative-leaning newspaper distributed throughout the United Kingdom and internationally."

I don't really get the point. We certainly knew they had no video feed of any kind. They were clearly waiting on pins and needles for information and status updates. Wouldn't you too be anxious waiting to hear what was happening?

Oh but that was the initial claim, the situation room photo.
Clinton Recounts Osama Bin Laden's Death
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton "gave a play-by-play account of
the day Bin Laden was killed" in a speech at the U.S. Naval
Academy and recalled how none of the officials in the room
watching the operation, including President Obama, "could
breathe for 30-35 minutes," ABC News reports.

You must not take everything so literally.

How will Romney pay for his $5 trillion tax cut. I'm much more interested in that fiction.

Brigadier General Marshall "Brad" Webb, assistant commanding general of Joint Special Operations Command who sits in the center of the famous photo, was monitoring the operation on a screen through a laptop computer. Michael Leiter, then director of the National Counterterrorism Center, went into the room to watch the feed that was being relayed from a secret drone. Secretaries Clinton, Gates, and Vice President Biden soon followed. Moments later Bergen reports, the president walked in and said, "I need to watch this," as he seated himself next to Webb.

I know, that perhaps was the funniest quote I have read in a while. Better than "binders full of woman.."

Its like Tony Hayward criticizing an oil spill recovery operation for being too agressive.

We'll give Seaside a chance to retract her reference....

Brown is now doing talk radio in Denver. I think that quote was lifted from his normal daily babble.

If you are going to discuss legal politics with the rest of us, you need to share our framework. Difference of opinion is ok, but there has to be some basic grounding as to what reality is.

Doesn't sound like direct footage but more of link via a drone.

From what I remember at the time, it wasn't a clear picture of what was happening at all.

They were obviously watching something but mostly listening for updates.

This was my understanding and seems to be consistent with accounts.

You have too choices
