In Wisconsin. I can't explain it. Just read it. Good grief. Maybe we could elect an official who would dress in like that lady with the scales. Whenever a judge did something like this, the official could just hit her on the head with her sword. That might improve things.
I think this is a great idea. Idaho is a huge silver producing state and I would think there would be a great demand for silver non-coins, if they were reasonably priced. I think the smart thing would be to produce a good number in weights that could be purchased for small sums, perhaps in the size of the old Mercury dimes. Evidently the State of Idaho is also sitting on a lot of silver mining waste from which silver for medalions, or whatever you want to call little non-coin coins, which could be extracted.

John Yoo has a series of blog posts over at Ricochet that argue that the President can initate force against other countries. The problem is that John does not address the strongest argument against his position: Mike Ramsey's argument that I have been trumpeting.
In fact, John criticizes the "Congress must declare war" position on the ground that it is supported only by framer intent, not text. But John knows, since he debated Mike Ramsey in the Chicago Law Review, that there is a strong textual argument for that view. Yet, he ignores it.
I like John and have learned much from him. But he should address this textual argument.
