Minus The Nemesis
A Collaboration of Some of the Finest Thought on Today's World

Most of the readers of this blog will most likely not be keeping up with events in Baltimore. Nor should they; Baltimore is a cesspool of fail. One can easily guess that the "Charm City" is a hoax and is staffed by complete muppets. While doing some reading, I came across an interesting legal case that is unfolding.

The details in the case are vague in some instances, but what is known (according to the articles) is the following:

The defendants are two Jewish brothers, Avi and Eliyahu Werdesheim. The plaintiff is a 15-year-old black kid. According to one article, the 15 year old kid was beaten for simply walking through the wrong neighborhood. From what I have read, Eli Werdesheim was formerly part of the Israeli Special Forces and now owns his own security company; he is 23 years old. In addition, the two brothers are part of a neighborhood watch group called Shomrim, or "the guards." Shomrim is a group that essentially watches over portions of northwest Baltimore's Jewish communities.

Naturally there are elements of the African-American, or black communities that are insistent that this was racism and a "hate crime." This is quite laughable considering that Shomrim was born out of necessity. Northwest Baltimore has many depressed areas that shelter a specific type of citizen. What much of the articles on the subject are not putting forth is that this poor little 15-year-old black boy has a rap sheet as long as a giraffe's neck. Just the week prior to getting put in his place, he had stolen a car.

It will come out in the coming weeks that this wee thug intended to do harm to the Werdesheim brothers by hitting them with a 2x4 that had nails through it. What's odd, however, is that the board cannot, for some reason, be used in the trial (scheduled for May sometime). Upon detecting the danger, Eli and Avi defended themselves which is still legal in some parts of this country.

Good on the Werdesheim brothers and shame on the truly whiny thug community because a punk got put in his place. There have already been threats if the Werdesheim brothers are acquitted (which, in my opinion, they should be) then there will be riots, etc. What a farce. These ignorant folks have zero respect for the reason that Shomrim was created in the first place, nor the process of law. They seem to think that the Black Panthers are acceptable while a Jewish group of a protective vein is not. Ignorance and hypocrisy.

*There are numerous articles on the case, look for them yourself. This one is just one of many.

There will be some interesting details to come before the trial...whatever the case may be, hopefully justice will be served. I have my doubts...

This is a little late, but a few days ago the Obama administration announced it would no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Its position is that the Act is unconstitutional, and as such will no longer use the DoJ to enforce it.

While I'm no fan of DOMA for a couple reasons, this announcement strikes me as pretty unsavory for two main reasons:

1) It smacks of serious Executive Branch overreach. Our constitution created a system where the Legislative passes laws, and the Executive enforces them. Its up to the Judicial to settle debates on the constitutionality of those laws. With the administration in effect nullifying a duly passed law, it subverts this system. Screwing with the careful balance of power crafted by the constitution is always a bad idea.

2) The goddam hypocrisy. The people cheering Obama for this decision, are the exact same people who advocate strict gun control. How can any reasonable person say that the constitution protects Gay Marriage (!) and at the same time say that it contains no individual right to bear arms? It takes a pretty strained interpretation of the document to say that it guarantees the right for two guys to get married. To be able to wring that out of it, but still have the audacity to ignore something a prominent and simple as the second amendment-- well, that takes some pretty serious chutzpah.

I like Gingrich's approach, that the Legislature should man up, and use its power of the purse to make the Executive branch enforce its laws. A congressional act revoking all funding from the DoJ until it starts to do its goddam job should do the trick.

Anyone want to lay a bet on that happening? I'll give some pretty long odds.....
