10th Amendment

“To mollify Alexander Hamilton’s and James Madison’s fears about how a Bill of Rights might be used as a pretext to infringe on human rights, the Ninth Amendment was added that reads: “The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” In essence, the Ninth Amendment says it’s impossible to list all of our God-given or natural rights. Just because a right is not listed doesn’t mean it can be infringed upon or disparaged by the U.S. Congress. The Tenth Amendment is a reinforcement of the Ninth saying, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” That means if a power is not delegated to Congress, it belongs to the states of the people.

The Ninth and Tenth Amendments mean absolutely nothing today as Americans have developed a level of naive trust for Congress, the White House and the U.S. Supreme Court that would have astonished the founders, a trust that will lead to our undoing as a great nation.”

~ Walter E. Williams

The following review of last week’s dENSA location was submitted by J.K.

The Chinese restaurant was great for me, it was like stepping back in time 25 years…the smoke eater still hung from the ceiling in an act of denial/reverence to a time when the West was just a little bit wilder.  Hang in there Szechuan Restaurant…you never know…a repeal may be just around the corner and you can plug that, “MUTHA” back in!

Ratings:

FOOD:   B-

PRICES:  A-

SERVICE & HOSPITALITY:  B+

CLEANLINESS:  C

THE DRINKS WERE JUST LIKE C.S. LIKES HIS MEN…….STIFF AND CHEAP.
