In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. I’ve been watching news about the new caravan. I learned Hondurans are allowed to enter Guatemala with only an I.D. No passport or visa is required. Most are able bodied males in their 20s and 30s. These are exactly the ones who ought to stay and fix things in Honduras although Honduras is such a basket case I don’t know if anyone can fix it. Many of these caravan people have no money at all.

    Here is a article about the Honduran’s President’s brother. He was arrested by the US for drug smuggling. No one can convince me that the president did not know what his brother was doing. With corruption running rampant I don’t see have anyone can have a decent life there.

    1. Excellent point.

      If you’re a just young person with little or no power, how can you work to change a corrupt dictatorial state?

  2. OT –

    Ginsburg rumored to have pneumonia — not really concerned about the excitement or fear around this — as a human I only wish the best for her — just want to know from our constitutional scholars out here — whether it was Rehnquist or now Ginsburg (if real) or even McCain near the end– How does a country allow this sort of thing where someone can be absent for so long and still take up a chair or collect a paycheck?

    This is really bothersome to me in that back in the day (before President Wilson) the Senators were supposed to be the advocates of the individual states and Supreme Court justices –given medical conditions and technology in 1787 — were not — I think — apt to hang on just to hang on.

    From a conservative perspective.. (broadly) I know a bunch of 5-3 decisions are the same as 5-4 and a 4-4 then would mean that a flip of Roberts (or other) from an otherwise 4-5 ruling thwarts it as it would be only a 4-4 so I don’t care what happens in the near term….It is this overall piece where people hang on (and in fairness to Ginsburg I don’t think she is really in that category yet)but its on my mind so I share it…..

    I’ve rambled enough… back to the grind. Good day to all and best wishes for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
