Missouri Is More Interesting than I Believed
Except for the stupid people.

City officials in St. Charles, Missouri seek to invalidate the decision of three out of four residents who voted to ban red light cameras.
St Charles courthouse. Three towns in Missouri joined together to sue the the residents of St. Charles who voted to ban red light cameras. St. Peters, Lake Saint Louis and O'Fallon are asking a county circuit court judge to overturn the charter amendment banning automated enforcement adopted in November with the support of 73 percent of voters. City leaders argue that the 69,469 residents who voted for the measure had no business limiting the right of local politicians to use automated ticketing machines.
"The charter amendment invades the legislative jurisdiction of cities in contravention of state policy, and conflicts with the authority specifically delegated to cities by the state to address their specific needs including traffic and enforcement of traffic regulations," attorney Matthew J. Fairless wrote in the cities' complaint.
The suit alleges the charter amendment will result in "a loss of revenue" and, therefore, each of the cities has standing to sue. The cities also argue that the Missouri General Assembly gave each city government "exclusive control over all streets, alleys, avenues and public highways within the limits of such city" so that the people who live in the county have no say in the decisions made by political leaders.

Is your Political Party Natzi-like?

Here's a checklist to see if your political party is acting like the Natzi party of Germany under Hitler. 

• Obsessed with national power and pride.
• Rule of the few.
• Survival of the fittest.
• Media as a political propaganda machine.
• Obsessed with security and war.
• Indoctrination.
• Re-writing history.
• Hatred of intellectuals.
• Hatred of communists.
• Obsessed with keep women in the home.
• Align yourself strongly with corporations.
• Racial superiority.
• Hatred of unions.
• Election rigging.
• Creating scapegoats to blame problems.
And last but not least…
• Obsessed with Christianity and with creating a Christian state.

Hitler was very much a Christian, which is why the Roman Catholic Church took his side and help his cause through WWII instead of help any other nation, because we were not, nor had we ever been a Christian nation.

Here are some other interesting quotes which seem to apply to today's political party agendas.

“The ultimate purpose of education is to fashion citizen’s conscious of the glory of country and filled with devotion to the national cause.” – Hitler’s view on the purpose of education and the purpose of the Hitler Youth in Nazi Germany.

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
― Adolf Hitler

“I have followed [the Church] in giving our party program the character of unalterable finality, like the Creed. The Church has never allowed the Creed to be interfered with. It is fifteen hundred
years since it was formulated, but every suggestion for its amendment, every logical criticism, or attack on it, has been rejected. The Church has realized that anything and everything can be
built up on a document of that sort, no matter how contradictory or irreconcilable with it. The faithful will swallow it whole, so long as logical reasoning is never allowed to be brought to bear on it.”

[Adolf Hitler, from Rauschning, _The Voice of Destruction_, pp. 239-40]

How to Impeach a Superior Court Judge

After reading this news article this morning, I thought it best to break out the law area and see if we need to get rid of a Supreme Court Judge. Antonin Scalia Says Constitution Permits Court To 'Favor Religion Over Non-Religion'

This guy is off his rocker. He mentions the Pledge, giving it as an example, when the Pledge was changed in the 1950's and the part, "under God" was added. The original pledge did not refer to God at all. I just did a whole article on how much the Founding Fathers were NOT Christian, nor did the Constitution or the Bill or Rights come from the Religious principles these people want to say they did.

The new Texas Senator has declared that he too is going to be pushing to get church "back into state where it belongs". I see very ugly things coming with these men. I see a new age of hate, and persecution. No good has ever come from mixing church and state. Never. Any country run with church has been in war after war and brought down by allied nations.
A Supreme Court Justice may be impeached by the House of Representatives and removed from office if convicted in a Senate trial, but only for the same types of offenses that would trigger impeachment proceedings for any other government official under Articles I and II of the Constitution. 
Article III, Section 1 states that judges of Article III courts shall hold their offices "during good behavior." "The phrase "good behavior" has been interpreted by the courts to equate to the same level of seriousness 'high crimes and misdemeanors" encompasses. 
The Impeachment Process
Impeachment is a two-step process; the impeachment phase is similar to a Grand Jury hearing, where charges (called "articles of impeachment") are presented and the House of Representatives determines whether the evidence is sufficient to warrant a trial. If the House vote passes by a simple majority, the defendant is "impeached," and proceeds to trial in the Senate. 
The House of Representatives indicts the accused on articles of impeachment, and, if impeached, theSenate conducts a trial to determine the party's guilt or innocence. 
The Senate trial, while analogous to a criminal trial, only convenes for the purpose of determining whether a Justice, the President (or another officeholder) should be removed from office on the basis of the evidence presented at impeachment. 
At the trial a committee from the House of Representatives, called "Managers," act as the prosecutors. Per constitutional mandate (Article I, Section 3), the Chief Justice of the United States (Supreme Court) must preside over the Senate trial of the President. If any other official is on trial, an "Impeachment Trial Committee" of Senators act as the presiding judges to hear testimony and evidence against the accused, which is then presented as a report to the remained of the Senate. The full Senate no longer participates in the hearing phase of the removal trial. This procedure came into practice in 1986 when the Senate amended its rules and procedures for impeachment and has been contested by several federal court judges, but the Supreme Court has declined to interfere in the process, calling the issue a political, not legal, matter. 
At the conclusion of the trial, the full Senate votes and must return a two-thirds Super Majority for conviction. Convicted officials are removed from office immediately and barred from holding future office. The Senate trial, while analogous to a criminal trial, only convenes for the purpose of determining whether a Justice, the President (or another officeholder) should be removed from office on the basis of the evidence presented at impeachment.
