Uh-Oh…you know when anyone like Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell speak out, the dems as well as Dear Leader aren’t going to like it one little bit…after-all, what they speak goes counter to what the ‘progressives’ believe and strive for when it comes to their agendas, and what the speak is called the ‘truth’ something the leftist-loons just can’t handle, it’s like a stake in the heart to them…that is, those who have a heart in the first place.
Walter Williams was filling in for El Rushbo yesterday, he spoke volumes. He also had Thomas Sowell on the show too. Both stories come from same site. I’ve had these saved to share with you all today. See what you think of both of their ideas and what they had to say.
First up we have this from Williams this is via TDC:
On Rush Limbaugh’s Thursday program, George Mason University professor Walter E. Williams outlined the case that states can nullify Obamacare, citing Thomas Jefferson’s 1789 Kentucky Resolution, which was a claim that the U. S. Constitution is a compact among the several states, and any power not delegated to the U.S. government is void.
“I think the American citizens ought to press their state governors and legislatures just to nullify the law — just to plain nullify it and say, ‘The citizens of such-and-such-a state don’t have to obey Obamacare because it’s unconstitutional, regardless of what the Supreme Court says,’” Williams said.
Williams cited Marbury v. Madison, which said “all laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void” to further the case for nullification from the states.
Nullification is a doctrine introduced in the infancy of the United States and was what some have suggested led to the Civil War. As far as the legal precedent of nullification and how it led to the Civil War, Williams said he doubted the repercussions would as serious as they were in 1861.
“I think two things are different this time,” he said. “First, most Americans are against Obamacare. And secondly, I don’t believe — and you call me up and tell me if I’m wrong about this — I don’t believe that you could find a United States soldier who would follow a presidential order to descend on a state to round up or shoot fellow Americans because they refuse to follow a congressional order to buy health insurance.”
Here’s the second story with Sowell…this is via TDC:
Thursday on Rush Limbaugh’s radio program, fill-in host Walter E. Williams, a professor at George Mason University, and Hoover Institution scholar in residence Thomas Sowell, author of “Intellectuals and Society: Revised and Expanded Edition,” discussed public education and how it impacts the black community.
Sowell said Americans need to honestly answer some tough questions blacks and the public school system. “It’s very hard to take sometimes, but it has to be done,” he said.
“Wherever blacks or anybody else wants to go in life, they can’t only get there from where they are, which means they have to know where they are — not where they wish they were or for other people to think they are, but where they are in fact. The truth is absolutely the key to any hope of advancement.”
Williams likened that public education system to the Ku Klux Klan.
“I’ve said that, Tom, that if I were the Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan and I wanted to sabotage any opportunity for black academic excellence, I could not think of a better means for doing so than the public education establishment in most of our cities,” Williams said.
Sowell agreed, adding that at this time their “friends” can do much more harm than their enemies.
“Absolutely true,” Sowell said. “I mean, we’ve reached the point where groups like the Ku Klux Klan can’t do very much to stop us. But our friends can do a lot to stop us.”
Sowell was a product of Stuyvesant High School in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City, and went on to study at Howard University, Columbia University and the University of Chicago. But he said the public school education he received in the 1940s isn’t available in 2012.
“People say ‘Isn’t it wonderful’ that I went through the Harlem schools and went on to these big universities,” he explained. “Well, the Harlem schools in those days were different than the Harlem schools today. If you wanted an education, you could get it in the middle of Harlem. That is not true today when we have so much utter nonsense taking up time, and we have so many judicial rulings making it impossible to maintain discipline.”
Friends… we just had unexpected company drop in…so I’m going to post this without much ado. ~
