A great conversation GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, had a great conversation with my son last night. He actually wanted my advise (or Ed-vise). Who knows if he will use it. I can tell him what he needs to do but it is up to him to do it.
Think About it Thursday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s THURSDAY! Time to THINK!
So. Here we are. Six days after the SU-PREME Court of these here U-NITED States of ‘Murica, had an emergency hearing about the vaccine executive order. HUGE deal it was. This past Monday was when the mandate was supposed to take effect (or affect…whichever).
Guess what? NO DECISION…STILL!
I’m a bit perplexed on this and can only give my opinion (or Ed-vise) on the matter.
My initial thinking was the conservative (limited government) group would issue the opinion and say “State’s Win.” Why? Because that is what a conservative group which leans more towards state governments (federalism) would say.
I think that’s where people get hung up on the Supreme Court. We tend to get worked up by the media about which political party appoints the justices. Instead, a person should Think more along the lines of strict interpretation of the Constitution AND whether or not the justice is for a centralized governing body (all power in Washington DC) or state’s rights (states are better suited to know what they need to do).
See, if you think along those lines, you will see that BOTH parties advocate BOTH positions.
What does all that have to do with the executive order? I think the justices are actually weighing the rule of law versus the need to keep people alive.
And THAT is a tough call…believe it or not.
Think About It. The decision they come up with WILL impact many future choices when it comes to the power that the Executive Branch (President) has in executing the President’s duties. It will also impact the power that administrative agencies have and the power that Congress gives them.
They have to decide whether the states have the ability to do enough to keep people protected or if the federal government should do it. Here, half the states are doing something and the other half are in various stages of public denial and private hypocrisy.
In my opinion, the longer this sits, the more likely the court will rule in favor of the government. Why do I think that? Because it takes longer for justices to justify making a decision outside of their comfort zone. Conservative justices lean toward power being in the states instead of DC.
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember a devise that says you can swim with it on implies you can ALREADY swim without it! Hmmm…didn’t teach that in school did they
