Float the Liver

Float the liver is what we call our river trips.

I got a wild hair and ran before work this morning (40 yards). I'm shocked and suprised that I did because I went to bed at 1:30 this morning. It was a good run, and I may have to do that more often.

Jug has a suite weekend planned. Heading to Lake Charles, Louisiana not Chicago tonight for an overnight trip to celebrate a friend's birthday. I'll be back home tomorrow and on Saturday heading out to New Braunfels to float the Guadelupe River...good times! That's my "here for this" report for the day...today is my Friday and I'm off at 2.

Jug's political corner: The AZ law...it is funny how the public's opinion can be formed by listening to people talk about something they haven't even read for themselves. I'm not talking about anyone on this blog, but just in general. Our own president comes out and says he can be acosted for immigration papers just for taking his kids out for ice cream...couldn't be further from the truth and that is not how the law is written. How many other politicians, who have been so outspoken on this law, have admitted that they haven't even read the ten pages? I'd consider the federal government's stance on this if they were fighting it and possibly offering up an alternative to try and improve the situation...but they're just trying to pacify the situation and position themselves for the upcoming elections. I will address one thing kod said, and this is WADR...to compare what AZ is proposing to Nazi Germany is just redonk. You should be required to come to Chicago on the weekend of Aug 21 and defend your position...tell cmkod you're doing it in the interest of your country! Maybe playing the national anthem in the background would help your case.

I put a whoepin* on Mize in MMA profighter last night.

A fan was escorted out of the Indians game last night for his own safety for wearing a LeBron James Heat jersey...not smat*. With that said...I hope Mize wears his Jim Edmonds Breers jersey to Chicago.

I'm ready for fantasy football!

FWIW I don't like a lot of federal Indian law policy; but if I brought a suit in state court arguing the feds were wrong I'd be sanctioned and probably disbarred.


So I do feel the pain and frustration of shitty federal laws/enforcement, etc; it still beats the alternative (allowing states to patchwork out their own Indian Law or immigration law policies)

kod said...

Jug said:

"i haven't compared the AZ law with the federal law side by side."


but then also said: "Overall the law is just enforcing a federal law."


-If you are interested Jug, the parts of the bill that got struck down did so due to the preemption doctrine.
-There are certain areas that have always been reserved to the feds (Indian law, National Defense, Immigration, civil actions arising on federal lands/parks, etc.).
-Under the preemption doctrine, for these things that are exclusively federal, states sometimes can pass laws in the areas for their own state (which is why the entire law wasn't struck down)....but they can NOT make any portion of the federal law illegal, unenforceable or moot in their state.

If the AZ bill was only enforcing the federal law/s on immigration, it would have been upheld. However, there were several provisions that were clearly contrary to the federal law, that is why they were struck down.

"For the second time in little more than a month, a Cook County judge has issued an arrest warrant for former Chicago Bull Eddy Curry in a legal case that raises new questions about the NBA player’s financial woes.

Cook County Circuit Judge Alexander White ordered Curry’s arrest on Monday, after learning Curry failed to sign an agreement to pay the balance of a $660,000 legal settlement reached after he was sued for allegedly having sex with an underage girl."

can the knicks leverage some NBA league rule and cut him now?

I'm gonna cnp some lengthy fb shit. We're gonna get it in on this mess.



"what u wrote is completely false, here are the fisrt two paragraphs of the arizona bill read it. nowhere does it say you have to carry papers. if u are stopped or questioned by police and they suspect your in the country ILLEGAL they d...o a backround to see. The law is the exact same as the federal law the first couple of lines say it plain as day. NO OFFICIAL OR AGENCY OF THIS STATE OR A COUNTY, CITY, TOWN OR OTHER POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THIS STATE MAY ADOPT A POLICY THAT LIMITS OR RESTRICTS THE ENFORCEMENT OF FEDERAL IMMIGRATION LAWS TO LESS THAN THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY FEDERAL LAW. B. FOR ANY LAWFUL CONTACT MADE BY A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL OR AGENCY OF THIS STATE OR A COUNTY, CITY, TOWN OR OTHER POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THIS STATE WHERE REASONABLE SUSPICION EXISTS THAT THE PERSON IS AN ALIEN WHO IS UNLAWFULLY PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES, A REASONABLE ATTEMPT SHALL BE MADE, WHEN PRACTICABLE, TO DETERMINE THE IMMIGRATION STATUS OF THE PERSON. THE PERSON'S IMMIGRATION STATUS SHALL BE VERIFIED WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENt PURSUANT TO 8 UNITED STATES CODE SECTION 1373(c). Also on you saying "states can't go around making thier own decisions on federal law" Read Amendment 10 of the constitution The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

I'm A Cub Fan And A Bud Man said...

This^^ strikes me as dumb

kod said...

it is dumb; it doesn't matter that the Constitution doesn't expressly mention immigration being covered by the federal government; the United States Supreme Court has ruled that it does continually since the 18th century.

Article 10 is irrelevant; under that argument a state could make abortion illegal in their state....well, that's not specifically mentioned in the constitution either, but states could never do that either.

kod said...

"states can't go around making thier own decisions on federal law"

-states do that all the time; as long as it isn't inconsistent with federal law (or goes further than the federal law in the direction that the federal law policy is trying to protect/address).
-However, States often go to far, and people sue and win against them in federal court getting state laws struck down. It is not uncommon.

Blue said...

"Article 10 is irrelevant; under that argument a state could make abortion illegal in their state....well, that's not specifically mentioned in the constitution either, but states could never do that either."

actually many states are working on this

El Padrino said...

derek lee is gay

Blue said...

the abortion thing, and this is the last I will speak of it, hinders on the definition of when life begins, and the constitution obviously doesn't address...The supreme court ruling, while stern, was vague in this part. So people are trying to get states to legislate the definition of when life begins, so that they aren't overturning precedent case law, they're circumventing it.

kod said...

actually many states are working on this


yeah, and they'll be shot down; just like when States (in non Public Law 280 States) try to subject Indians or Indian Tribes to State law.

Blue said...

"-However, States often go to far, and people sue and win against them in federal court getting state laws struck down. It is not uncommon."

^^^

Many times its because it's a ballot issue that some PAC drafted that is so totally worthless, but somehow gets people confused into passing it.

tosh said it starts at the erection

Blue said...

it's how states/cities are able to get medical marijuana passed, even though that goes directly against federal law.

kod said...

they're circumventing it.

-oh yeah, like Plaanned Parenthood v. Casey curtailed a lot of Roe v. Wade by circumvention; it's just circumventing and chipping away

Blue said...

"tosh said it starts at the erection"

so around 13?

kod said...

"it's how states/cities are able to get medical marijuana passed, even though that goes directly against federal law."


-that's a little different. Technically the feds could arrest anyone for medical marijuana(and it has happened in the past) but it's exploded because Obama came out and said he wasn't going to intervene in what states want to do on that issue (since he is ultimately in charge of the DOJ)

Former Knicks guard Stephon Marbury has agreed to three more years with a Chinese basketball team….

Marbury played 15 games last season with Shanxi Zhongyu of the Chinese Basketball Association. The point guard was a fan favorite in the rustbelt city of Taiyuan, showing none of the defiant personality that had alienated management, teammates and fans in the U.S.

Marbury, 33, will play two more years and may be asked to become an assistant coach in the third, Shanxi said in an announcement on its website.

SO about 2 years ago, this chick I know broke up with her psycho boyfriend. She was all distraught one night, so I took her and her friend out for some drinks. I didn't try anything, nor did I even do or say anything that would suggest that was my intention, which FTR it was not. Anyways, a month or so later, they get back together and the boyfriend starts sending me threatening emails and leaving crazy voicemails. It took me a bit, but I FINALLY smoothed it over with him, convinced him that I wasn't trying to get with her and now we're cool.

Fast forward to earlier today. I get an email from her today saying that she broke up with the boyfriend again and that she and I should go for drinks. Needless to say, I declined the invitation.
