My Questions For Gorsuch

I watched a couple of minutes of yesterday's marathon confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.  It was typical Washington DC theater.  The career politicians who were grilling him with questions would preface their interrogatories with long-winded speeches about the virtues of their favorite doctrinal tenet of government worship or socialism.  After the lecture was finally over they would ask some inane question designed to make him look bad.  In the end they only made themselves look bad.  Making a career politician look bad is an easy thing to do, even for a career politician.  Throughout the entire process there were many references to the archaic document known as the Constitution of the United States.  It never ceases to amaze me how much these mental midgets refer to a document they swear a vow to uphold but refuse to submit to.  As the proceedings went along it occurred to me that I would very much have liked to have had the opportunity to grill Gorsuch with some questions of my own.  The folks who support Gorsuch are claiming that he is a strict constitutionalist and would be an excellent addition to the Supreme Court of Jokers.  Since I could not ask these questions in person I will ask them here today in my blog.
  1. Do you believe the covert spying activities of the FBI, CIA and NSA upon the citizens of the Socialist Democracy of Amerika are a violation of the 4th Amendment?  If not, why not?  If so, what would you do about them?
  2. Please explain how the office of President of the United States, as strictly defined by the Constitution of the United States, includes the following functions:
    1. Creating jobs.
    2. Crafting the federal budget.
    3. Creating economic growth.
    4. Making tax policy.
    5. Enacting tariffs.
    6. Building a wall along the border with Mexico.
    7. Rebuilding Amerikan "infrastructure," whatever that is.
    8. Generally acting like a King.
  3. Does the Constitution grant retirement income security (Social Security) to all citizens who reach age 65?  If so, where is it found?   If not, what would you do about the Social Security program we currently live under?
  4. Does the Constitution grant medical care payments (Medicare) to all citizens who reach age 65?  If so, where is it found?  If not, what would you do about the Medicare program we all currently live under?
  5. Do you believe that Obamacare is simply a tax and therefore constitutional?  
  6. Please explain the constitutional basis for drafting women into the military of the Socialist Democracy of Amerika.  If there is no basis for that practice what would you do with the current state of affairs in this country in regards to women potentially being drafted?
  7. How do you reconcile federally defined "free speech" zones with the 1st Amendment?
  8. Where in the Constitution is the principle discovered that women can legally conspire with government medical professionals to murder their unborn babies?
  9. Is the Constitution easy or hard to understand?  If it is easy to understand, why is there so much difference of opinion among the members of the Supreme Court of Jokers about what is constitutional?  If it is hard to understand, give some examples of items within it that are indiscernible or undecipherable.
  10. Does the Constitution justify the Amerikan Empire?  If so, where?
Now those are the sorts of questions I would like a supreme court nominee to face.  Of course that will never happen because the game is rigged.  Everyone has agreed in advance to merely pay lip service to the Constitution.  Every question is asked and every answer is given with fingers crossed.  Nobody, including Gorsuch, believes in or will strictly enforce nothing but the Constitution of the United States.  Ultimately that means that the present proceedings are nothing more than a dog and pony show.  They are opportunities for career politicians to attempt to make themselves look good in the eyes of the people who voted for them and not much else.  It is a good thing the baseball season starts soon.  I will be able to watch the Rockies rather than CSPAN every night.  I will be equally disappointed in the outcome but at least baseball does not take one third of my income, spy on my emails and draft my daughter into the military.
