I really hate 9/11 Conspiracy theorists…… they cannot explain everything, and yet they continually hack at facts that cannot be proven, disproven, or are just nonexistent.
In any case, this article below gives new insight on the mechanisms behind the Twin Towers’ collapse. Very interesting.

Rick Perry has experience from being the governor of Texas, allowing for great economic expansion in the midst of recession. With his running in the presidential election of 2012, his views are being renewed and manipulated as he campaigns to a wide range of groups. I see him as a right-wing person who may finally place the government back in conservative hands… but does the news of his altering Constitutional amendments change my perspective? Here are the seven ways Perry is thinking of altering in the Constitution.
1. Abolish lifetime tenure for federal judges by amending Article III, Section I of the Constitution.
This is a conservative choice. The controversy over the choosing Chief Justice Sonia Sotomayor brought this issue to light, as her views of being prejudiced and making liberal court decisions angered many people. This is a harder issue, for it depends upon the time period situation and the president who chooses the federal judges. Many court decisions including Roe v. Wade, Brown v. Board of Education, and Miranda v. Arizona would not have come out as they did because of the values the court justices held.
The point of the Supreme Court is to have people free from the prejudices and influences that other branches are afflicted by. Were we to abolish lifetime appointment and change it to a shorter, regular interval, justices would be influenced to side with the president or select factions that keep them in their position. Without lifetime appointment, the law would not be blind.
2. Congress should have the power to override Supreme Court decisions with a two-thirds vote.
This would also influence the supreme justices for the worse, as they would have to reach compromise with yet another party. Not only would Congress continue to be sidetracked, but they would waste time upon arguing a Supreme Court case among themselves and further distorting it.
3. Scrap the federal income tax by repealing the Sixteenth Amendment.
I personally hate taxes. Congress’s spending of taxpayer money is not helping this issue. I support the scraping of the federal income tax, as it is not directed towards any one state or area that may need support more so than any other group. Federal income tax is also the highest of taxes in the United States.
4. End the direct election of senators by repealing the Seventeenth Amendment.
I am not sure whether or not this is conservative. If the people directly vote for their senators, then they may be influenced by campaigning efforts and the media. Although this gives Americans direct representation, it allows for conflicting values to develop between the elected senator and lower representatives. I do support this course of action, as it will make Americans and their lower representatives to both be accountable for their votes and allow for unified action among government officials.
5. Require the federal government to balance its budget every year.
This is the most reasonable course of action, and it is the most likely to be passed. A balanced budget is supposed to have less spending, and greater GDP than interest rates and debt increases. This has gained the most momentum due to the current administration’s spending craze and push to increase the debt ceiling.
6. The federal Constitution should define marriage as between one man and one woman in all 50 states.
I see this as violating the pursuit of happiness. The government should have no right to violate the love two people have for each other, regardless of either’s gender. I do not want to see two men or two women making out in public, but they do have the right to a domestic partnership and a happy relationship.
7. Abortion should be made illegal throughout the country.
It is unfortunate to see young children and teenagers going through such troubled times, and not having the resources or knowledge to care for a child. However, we should not abandon an option that allows a person such freedom from a past of violence. We can resolve this issue with better education and accessibility to centers that may care for victims. There needs to be more openness on the issue of sex and crime, and this will lead to greater knowledge in the event of such an issue. Technology might allow for earlier warning of pregnancy, and stem cell research may not be as slandered. I should personally hope that people would find ways to make having a child worth it, but I respect a person’s need to care for themselves and their situation.
Overall, I do not support Rick Perry’s support of changing the Constitution. It is mainly through the exploration of morals, values and purpose that guide such a conclusion. If you do not know your position on issues, than find out where you stand on the political spectrum and go from there. Hopefully, by doing so, you may reach your own conclusions on issues like this.
I love these people standing up for their beliefs, and not standing for the insults thrown from the highest echelons of political society. Also, Obama does not even answer any of the questions. Let us pray that people are just as smart as these Tea Party members, and that Obama is not going to have a very successful tour – especially as he demonstrates wasting taxpayer money with his 1.1 million dollar tour bus.

With the ten year anniversary of the terrorist attack, and of America uniting against such terrorizing factions, is the opening of the World Trade Center reflecting pools. Each reflecting pool is built from the 1-acre foundations of the twin towers. A steel cross found among the wreckage in the site will stand with the memorial, within visual distance of the museum that shall also be erected for future generations to know of the tragic day.
Hopefully, there won’t be the mosque across the street…..
Our tactful leaders have again failed to act well among company….. Obama’s traveling to pubs is complete lunacy when looking at the worst tornado season in decades. Our interruption of the English national anthem, and Michelle Obama ignoring customs and, equivalently, raping the queen is not acceptable. And our being imbeciles will not end! Let us pray that common sense shall come to dictate the government’s limits and actions…
Obama has finally called for the US to go against Israel. He calls for the lands received during the 1967 Six Day War to be given back to Palestine – before the war, Jewish and Christian graves were desecrated, and members of non-Muslim faith disrespected. Even common sense would dictate that it would go back to this past, as the entire region has vowed to destroy Israel. An article on Yahoo! News tells the account in detail, Obama wants to resolve a land dispute fought since the dawn of time by becoming even further involved. We are going to BEGIN by investing an initial 2 Billion dollars overseas. The Jewish homeland is beginning to be dismantled, and we Americans are continuing to display our ignorance in the face of international and domestic affairs. STOP THE INSANITY!
Many news sources are indicating that our success overseas could have gone horribly awry, and that it could have gone wrong at many times. The account of the story tells many facts that many already know, including how we kept the foreign government in the dark and how we spontaneously attacked. It is truly surprising, the extent to which our forces improvised… imagine if we had failed.
There are still the questions of whether the Middle Eastern governments will respect our intrusion following this affair. The debate over future terrorist attacks, the implications of Osama bin Laden’s ‘martyrdom’ and the progress to be made in our own country will be explored in the coming years. The information that we have analyzed over the years on Obama bin Laden’s activities and whereabouts will most likely be kept a secret, to protect the public from worrying over the terrorists’ extent of destruction. But let’s not worry about that…… let’s just worry about politics and our own domestic affairs.
