H.R. 998 “constitutional” right…


The  summary of this act is as follows: “Student Non-Discrimination Act of 2011 – Prohibits public school students from being excluded from participating in, or subject to discrimination under, any federally-assisted educational program on the basis of their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity or that of their associates.

Considers harassment to be a form of discrimination.

Prohibits retaliation against anyone for opposing conduct they reasonably believe to be unlawful under this Act.

Authorizes federal departments and agencies to enforce these prohibitions by cutting off the educational assistance of recipients found to be violating them.

Allows an aggrieved individual to assert a violation of this Act in a judicial proceeding and recover reasonable attorney’s fees should they prevail.

Deems a state’s receipt of federal educational assistance for a program to constitute a waiver of sovereign immunity for conduct prohibited under this Act regarding such program.

While this may sound innocent enough, maybe even good, what is neither innocent nor good but rather a symptom of our countries continued slide into hedonism and depravity is that fact the justification for this bill’s constitutionality is the infamous commerce clause. We should not be allowing our congressmen to get away with this nonsense.

If the constitution allows this, then the tenth amendment has no meaning (except that it was put in afterwards as an amendment and therefore trumps the commerce clause).

Please call or write your congressman/woman and ask them to call for the ejection of congressman Polis for this outrageous abuse of power.

Sen. Durbin needs to READ the constitution.


“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States” Article 2 Clause 5 of the U.S. constitution. According to a video on Hotair Sen. Dick Durbin said in an address that when he looked at a crowd of students who went to college under the DREAM act he saw “our future… congressmen, senators, and maybe even our President.” According to wikipedia the dream act “This bill would provide conditional permanent residency to certain illegal and deportable alien students who graduate from US high schools, who are of good moral character, arrived in the U.S. legally or illegally as minors…” So those who recieved help under the dream act are inelligeble for the office of President of the U.S.

Sounds to me like at least one Senator needs to take a second look at the constitution.
