Editor's Note:

Didn't this go to referendum 2 years ago?

 

(The Center Square) – A bicameral pair of lawmakers proposed a constitutional amendment on Thursday ending the collection of school property taxes.

Sen. John DiSanto, R-New Bloomfield, and Rep. Perry Stambaugh, R-New Bloomfield, said Senate Bill 424 and House Bill 927 – if passed in two consecutive sessions – would allow voters to decide if the General Assembly should replace the levy with a combination of state and local sales and income taxes.

Constitution For The United States

First, an observation that our founding fathers never wrote the constition "of" the United States.  According to Black's Law Dictionary, 6th edition, below are the legal definitions of the word "for" and "of" so that you can see the difference.

I'm not going to try and discuss the legal difference between the words "of" and "for" - but see for yourself that they are legally different. 

Read and think for yourself!

Should the DOJ Watch Out for State & Local Orders That Infringe on Citizens’ Rights?

Quotable:

“Many policies that would be unthinkable in regular times have become commonplace in recent weeks, and we do not want to unduly interfere with the important efforts of state and local officials to protect the public. But the Constitution is not suspended in times of crisis. We must therefore be vigilant to ensure its protections are preserved, at the same time that the public is protected.”

  • "I think one of the things that really separates us from the high primates is that we’re tool builders. I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species on the planet. The condor used the least energy to move a kilometer. And, humans came in with a rather unimpressive showing, about a third of the way down the list. It was not too proud a showing for the crown of creation. So, that didn’t look so good. But, then somebody at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency of locomotion for a man on a bicycle. And, a man on a bicycle, a human on a bicycle, blew the condor away, completely off the top of the charts.

    And that’s what a computer is to me. What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.”

    ~ Steve Jobs
