Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli of Virginia defends the law suit against the Federal Government and Obamacare.

Cuccinelli and Cline

“ObamaCare and the Constitution,” you seem to assume that Virginia's lawsuit against ObamaCare is an attempt to "nullify" federal law.
This is not the case. Virginia concedes that the Constitution's Supremacy Clause ensures that federal law trumps state law when there is a direct conflict between laws. However, a federal law will only trump when it is constitutionally grounded. In our lawsuit, Virginia is asking the federal courts to declare the federal health-care act unconstitutional based on Congress's use of the Constitution's Commerce Clause to impose an individual health insurance mandate on citizens."
Cuccinelli wrote in the Wall Street Journal.

Not Your Old Man's 'Kegger'...

JMU Party Riot Likened to a 'War Zone.'

The Washington Post [click to read] reported on the block party gone bad at JMU. Phil [click to read] samples the 'phone videos' put up by sudents. One came down pretty fast as the police began scanning them for bottle throwers and arsonists.

The Post calls the event 'uncharacteristic' and JMU's President, Linwood H. Rose issued the following statement to students:

"Your collective behavior was an embarrassment to your university and a discredit to our reputation," he wrote. "No one is opposed to some fun on a beautiful spring weekend, but public drunkenness, destruction of property, and threats to personal safety are unacceptable outcomes."

Agreed, students have always enjoyed high energy weekends and many a beverage distributor has thanked Providence for a territory that includes an institution of 'higher learning.' In the late sixties you could see ugly on campus during the many antiwar demonstrations but the spring kegger was always a relatively low impact event.

But I am thinking now of Robert Bork's writings on the subject. The campus radicals of the sixties are now tenured professors. Bill Ayers actually has a real job! The radicals are in the classroom promoting Marxism, Socialism and Moral Relativity. When riots break out in the streets, why are we even surprised?

Tear gas and police in riot gear... is this Harrisonburg or Watts?

Times Change, Things Get Ugly at JMU Springfest

What Kind of Leadership Are We Preparing for the Future?

"You tell kids in school that there is no absolute right or wrong. You tell them in college that there is no right and wrong. You tell them that people who believe in absolute right and wrong are intolerant and deny them a platform to speak from... then these young people rise to positions of leadership in industry... AND GOVERNMENT... and they believe that there is no absolute right and wrong. What do you get? When a person's own self-actualization becomes the sole moral imperative, how WILL they decide in those instances we have always considered 'making the tough choices?' " [1.]

When I saw Phil's report I had to remember these words. Looking at the videos it is hard to tell if you are in Harrisonburg or Watts? It seems the level of ugly has been raised on campuses.

Times change. Springfest turns ugly at JMU

2010 Springfest
Apparently good times went bad in Harrisonburg. During the annual JMU Springfest, 30 people were arrested and 30 people or more were treated at a local hospital.

Virginia Congressman questioned by Jason Mattera.

Congressman Jim Moran
Congressman Jim Moran represents Virginia's 8th congressional district, an area which is located in Northern Virginia, and includes the cities of Falls Church and Alexandria, as well as a portion of Fairfax County and the entirety of Arlington County.
He was apparently confused about the "12th congressional district" in Virginia. Congressman Jim Moran was questioned by author Jason Mattera about "stimulus" money being spent in the 12th district, a district that does not exist.
Congressman Jim Moran seems to think that it is just a "clerical error"
