Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

Is This America’s Future?

Is This America’s Future?

BY T.F. STERN The caption attached to this image was, “A picture IS worth a thousand words”.   What exactly are we to glean from the information presented by this exemplary citizen?  Without being too uncomplimentary, we’re to assume this is a woman and that she doesn’t believe in paying for abortions; the tattoos must have been [...]

Do Property Rights Exist in Our Day?

Do Property Rights Exist in Our Day?

BY T.F. STERN A curious question, “Do property rights exist in our day”?  The reason I asked had to do with recent observations on the social medium Facebook.  Most of the articles that I commented on recently had to do with property rights in one way or another; but the issues associated with each comment came across as if the property [...]

The Climate Change Broken Record

The Climate Change Broken Record

BY T.F. STERN The younger generation may need to be brought up to speed on the term Broken Record; all they’ve ever known comes via digital.  In the old days of vinyl recordings music was stored on tiny grooves of plastic and a stylus rode these grooves to pick up the music and transfer it to the stereo so we could hear it.  If there was a [...]

Yelling Fire in a Theater

Yelling Fire in a Theater

BY T.F. STERN The more we hear about what is going on in Ferguson, Missouri, the more it would appear that this was a Crisis that could be used by the Obama administration to further divide our nation.   ‘Low information voters’ turned Ferguson into a war zone, rioting, looting and burning down storefronts; all the while demanding [...]

A Suspect Matching the Description

A Suspect Matching the Description

BY T.F. STERN Unless you’ve been living in a closet this past week or landed from a distant planet then you’d be ignorant to news stories of racial tensions and rioting over an unarmed young Black person, Mike Brown, being shot and killed by a White police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.  Major news networks were quick to pour gasoline on the [...]

Fitting Keys for Repo Cars

Fitting Keys for Repo Cars

BY T.F. STERN Last week one of my regular ‘note lot’ dealerships called needing keys for several vehicles.  Prior to working on a GMC Yukon the inventory manager approached and asked, “You were a cop, right?” “Yes; but I retired over 20 years ago; why, is there something I should know?”  That’s an interesting way to start a [...]

Must have been used in religious ceremonies…

Must have been used in religious ceremonies…

BY T.F. STERN Archeologists have a catch phrase that covers parts of the unknown history of any site they find.  It pops up when no logical answers to a particular item present themselves, “Probably used in some religious ceremony”, or words to that effect.  It doesn’t matter if it’s Stonehenge, Cliff Dwellings or the giant heads [...]

Just walk away

Just walk away

BY T.F. STERN Yesterday a fellow called asking if I was able to make and program a key for a Ford Freestyle van.  I told him yes and asked where it was located.  He paused and you could hear him going through file folders and talking to himself.  He then read me the location which was on the other side of town; but still within my service [...]

Are Police Public Relations in the Toilet?

Are Police Public Relations in the Toilet?

  BY T.F. STERN This past Sunday a friend of mine at church asked me how I felt about police public relations.  He’s an active duty police officer and knew that I’d retired from the Department many years ago after he’d read some of my blog articles.  He challenged me to consider how to improve police public relations. Here’ a chance [...]

Wireless Emergency Alert

Wireless Emergency Alert

BY T.F. STERN The advent of Smart Phones with fancy APPs, many of which I have no clue about, reminds me that I’m a dinosaur living beyond my time.  One that comes standard on most cell phones is the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA).   I know it works because it went off three times when I was in the shower. I remember having practice [...]
