Senate Candidate Jim Deakin’s Letter per the Sonia Sotomayor Supreme Court Nomination

Letter to the Editor

For Immediate Release

Jim Deakin US Senate Candidate for Arizona in 2010 www.jimdeakin.com

US Supreme Court – Nominee Sonia Sotomayor

Sonia Sotomayor is being touted as “Saving Baseball” with her 1995 ruling which assisted in the ending of the Baseball Strike.

But, did she really save baseball? Or destroy baseball?

The Sotomayor ruling negated the rights of the owners of Major League Baseball. With limits set to the rights of the owners they were forced to accept the terms set by the baseball players union. Those terms have resulted in $100Million, $140Million and $200Million dollar contracts.

The unlimited player salaries have resulted in tax payer financing of baseball stadiums.

The unlimited player salaries have resulted in higher ticket, parking and concession prices.

The unlimited player salaries have resulted in the era of “Steroids” and “HGH”. A batter who hit 10 additional home runs per year resulted in $50Million additional salary.

Her ruling may have expedited the end of the strike. Her ruling did not help the tax payers. Her ruling did not help baseball fans. Her ruling did not help baseball statistics. Her ruling did not adequately perceive the future implications and unintended consequences.

Diversity brings perspective. The US Supreme Court deserves perspective tempered by humility and forethought of consequences.

I Stand Corrected! Re: Sixteenth Amendment via Senate Candidate Jim Deakin

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

This weekend I met a gentleman running for McCain’s Senate seat who set me straight.  He knows more than I about the ratification of the income tax and reported to me that a certain few states initially ratified it but that number of states ratifying the 16th Amendment has increased to 38.  Senate candidate Jim Deakin corrected me during our conversation this weekend.

“Irregardless” of the vote, I hold that the taxing of income by the Federal Government is unconstitutional!  And, what’s more, immoral.  Now, the states may tax income but the Federal Government?  NEVER!  Our US Constitution limits the Federal Government to collecting duties & tariffs. Yet, The New World Order has created the god of “free trade” for us to worship.

It is refreshing to meet someone like Jim Deakin www.jimdeakin.com  running for  high office who knows his stuff and supports a return to both a Constitutional Congress (Wherein we don’t pay Congressmen!) and a Constitutional Senate (to which we the people don’t directly elect our Senators but our elected state legislators elect Senators from amoung themselves–subject to instant recall at any time!)

McCain–YOU’RE FIRED!

I admit I was wrong in my last post entitled “You Stupid People!”  My apologies. Mea cupla.
