One Lump of Stupid or Two, Rep. King?

Xristian Xrazy is as Xristian Xrazy does.

Xristian Xrazy is as Xristian Xrazy does.

The Pride of Iowa, ol’ Cantaloupe Calves hisself, Steve King is proposing legislation that will strip federal courts of the ability to make any ruling on marriage. You know, Article 3 of the Constitution. The bill also prevents any federal monies from being used for any enforcement of any order or any judgment by any federal court.

We guess that King doesn’t want the ‘mos to get married, but is cool with wive-sisters?

Says King:

“For too long, federal courts have overstepped their constitutionally limited duty to interpret the Constitution. Rather, federal courts have perverted the Constitution to make law and create constitutional rights to things such as privacy, birth control, and abortion. These unenumerated, so-called constitutionally-protected rights were not envisioned by our Founding Fathers.”

King essentially just gave Konstitushunonal Konservatives an essential boner, essentially.

    Neither were airplanes. Does that mean that all the laws governing airspace are now null & void? Cause there’s a guy in jail with a gyrocopter who would like to discuss this.

    I bet he’d oppose any limitations on the Feds’ ability to squash states’ legalization of pot.

      Yes, just call them racist. So easy. And worth as much as other easy solutions – absolutely nothing.

    Silly hyperbolic responses so far. Feds can regulate airspace around the White House same as they can build a cordon around the POTUS limo, while having no power to close off roads in general for no known reason. Feds have no legal power over pot – past 80 years have been a fraud. Prohibition, as stupid as it was, at least was done right – constitutionally.

    King is establishment, so he can’t give this a truly constitutional assessment, which, if he could, would be this: The government’s only place in marriage is enforcing the property rights contract that comes with a marriage. If three want to marry as if they wee two, or Nero wants to marry his horse again, then so be it, and the state will eventually give the horse half of the crumbling Roman Empire.

    The state has no place in deciding who can marry, Period.

      Your understanding of marriage, then, apparently involves one of the parties being property. A horse cannot give consent, the pesky “i do” or “I will” in the ceremony, not to mention signing any required documents. So thanks for displaying your ignorance and bias.
