good news, great news
« on: March 11, 2019, 11:53:10 AM »
I've been very concerned about the Demos and primitives making the District of Columbia into the 51st state, thus giving them an additional guaranteed two Senate seats.

Statehood can be granted with congressional approval, nothing more needed.

But apparently the District of Columbia is a special case.

This according to google when I asked, "can the District of Columbia become a state with only congressional approval?"

.....D.C. Statehood: Not Without a Constitutional Amendment. ... As a constitutional matter, however, the Justice Department under both Democratic and Republican administrations has consistently agreed that statehood for the District requires a constitutional amendment; it cannot be done by mere majority vote in Congress.....

Yay yay yay yay yay.   :rimshot:

I think that Lt. Ripley's advice needs to be taken here . . . :whistling:
"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty." - Thomas Jefferson

"All you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don't sit looking at it - walk!" -Ayn Rand
"Those that trust God with their safety must yet use proper means for their safety, otherwise they tempt Him, and do not trust Him.  God will provide, but so must we also." - Matthew Henry, Commentary on 2 Chronicles 32, from Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible

"These anti-gun fools are more dangerous to liberty than street criminals or foreign spies."--Theodore Haas, Dachau Survivor

Chase her.
Chase her even when she's yours.
That's the only way you'll be assured to never lose her.

I've thought for years that the government district, with an official resident population of 537 + family members, should be carved out of the current district, and the remainder restored to Maryland as the south bank of the Potomac was returned to Virginia.
