      I read everything that seemed relevant, but nothing shows anything but precedent that Debs ran for office after a conviction. Where is the Constitutional reference?

      • Stella says:

        Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution imposes only three eligibility requirements on persons serving as president, based on the officeholder’s age, time of residency in the U.S., and citizenship status:

        “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

        These requirements have been modified twice. Under the 12th Amendment, the same three qualifications were applied to the vice president of the United States. The 22nd Amendment limited office holders to two terms as president.

        Debs is a precedent.

        According to Politifact (no friend of Donald Trump):

        The U.S. Constitution says presidential candidates must be citizens and residents of the United States for at least 14 years and at least 35 years old. It does not state that a criminal indictment or conviction prevents someone from running for president.

        A separate section of the Constitution bans federal office holders who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion.” It was a condition added after the Civil War, but using it to keep today’s candidates off the ballot is a long shot.

        Some state laws and constitutions bar felons from running for office, but that’s for state or local offices only.

    Mornin’, all. Our Favorite Sunday Columnist seems to sense a bit of change is in the air. The elite are nervous. While we may not hear that from the talking heads on the TEEVEE, activity going on in the background says something different.

    Uh-oh! I’ve got to keep up with all the panic p*rn. I missed the mega-floods….not to be confused with the MAGA flood, the one hitting voting booths this fall. But apparently the Klimate Krazies have a new way for us to die since we quit believing the other 37 panic-induced ways we were going to perish. 😀 😀 😀

      The Carter Family ~ “God Gave Noah The Rainbow Sign”

      A commenter said: “Recorded February 14, 1929 at Camden NJ in RCA Victor studio”

      I’ve got a home in that rock
      Don’t you see (don’t you see)
      I’ve got a home in that rock
      Don’t you see
      I’ve got a home in that rock
      Just beyond the mountaintop
      Hide me over, Rock of Ages, cleft for me

      God gave Noah the rainbow sign
      Don’t you see (don’t you see)
      God gave Noah the rainbow sign
      Don’t you see
      God gave Noah the rainbow sign
      No more water, but the fire next time
      Hide me over, Rock of Ages, cleft for me

      Poor old Lazarus, poor as I
      Don’t you see (don’t you see)
      Poor old Lazarus, poor as I
      Don’t you see
      Poor old Lazarus, poor as I
      When he died he had a home on high
      Hide me over, Rock of Ages, cleft for me

      East and West the fire will roll
      Hide thy me (hide thy me)
      East and West the fire will roll
      Hide thy me
      East and West the fire will roll
      How will it be with my poor soul
      Hide me over, Rock of Ages, cleft for me

      When this world’s all on fire
      Hide thy me (hide thy me)
      When this world’s all on fire
      Let thy bosom be my pillow
      Hide me over, Rock of Ages, cleft for me

      Songwriter: A.P. Carter

      Oops, apparently attached the huge watermelon I saw by the side of the road in southern Mississippi a couple of weeks ago. A great big surprise (about 8’x18’). Didn’t seem to be advertising, but maybe a school project?

      Love the watermelon. Political commentary cartoons are an artform more in use now than ever before. Unfortunately they are still trying to force socialism down the throats of Los Angelenos while much of Eastern Europe is on the verge of real economic break-throughs. Even Russia is thriving.

      Oy, but Imgur is full of leftie trash.

    Afternoon All. Got back from church a little while ago. Loki was so glad to see me she had the roomies for a long time. I wish I could figure a way to take her with me, but I am afraid to leave her in the car. Still thinking on it. There isn’t a lot of shade around the church, but there is some. If I can figure out a way, after church I can go on home with the kids for lunch.

    My youngest granddaughter was wearing a little dress I had bought for the 7 year old back when she was about 2. I was please it has held up so well, It hasn’t seemed to fade or get misshapen. It is a navy blue dress with multicolor stripes all up and down the sleeves. I thought it was just so cute. Glad I got it.

    I overheard my DIL. talking about “the next baby:” 🙂

    Hope you all have a nice rest of the day.

      Precious memories on the granddaughter’s dress. Did you get photos for her future scrapbook?

      Btw, you might check to see what state, county, city laws are re leaving animals in locked cars in order to avoid potential problems.

        No pictures for a scrapbook. I am sure her mom has some. And, yes, I will check on that, although the animal laws here seem somewhat lax to me. The church is out in the middle of nowhere, as are many things here, so it would be perfectly all right to leave the windows down some and the car unlocked.

      They’ve been bad ever since J. Edgar was in charge. No one last 40+ years in charge of anything in that town, unless they were a D committee chairman.
