Political Apparel at the Polls Now Allowed in Minnesota

 

 

“To the surprise of many, the challenge to the Minnesota law banning political badges, political buttons, or other political insignia at polling places was successful in the U.S. Supreme Court case Minnesota Voter Alliance v. Mansky.

The High Court held that the law violates the First Amendment rights of voters because, as the law is written, it’s just too vague. The 7 to 2 majority opinion explains that the wording of law does not provide individuals, nor those tasked with working the polls, clear definitions as what qualifies as “political.” Reading through the opinion, though, it is clear that SCOTUS does see a path whereby such restrictions on apparel could cut Constitutional muster.

What Isn’t Political?

As commentators noted after the oral argument, the justices seemed to really grapple with the question of what apparel, or insignia, wouldn’t actually qualify as political. From MAGA hats and clothing, to #MeToo pins, to even hats with flashing lights.

The Court’s opinion pulled out the old Webster’s dictionary to quote part of the definition: “a word that can broadly encompass anything ‘of or relating to government, a government, or the conduct of governmental affairs.'” From there, the Court analyzed how Minnesota interpreted the ban, and found a significant issue with the state’s guidance for “issue oriented material designed to influence or impact voting.” In short, the Court found that this category of banned apparel placed too high a burden on individuals and poll judges to suss out what is or isn’t political.

A bigger issue, according to the majority, was that the ban also encompassed apparel that is “promoting a group with recognizable political views,” like the ban on “issue oriented material.” The Court explained that this category also was too vague to be uniformly enforced.

Justice Undefined

The two dissenting justices, Justices Sotomayor and Breyer, explain that while they agree with much of what the majority held, the Court was too hasty. The dissent explains that the question of interpretation of the Minnesota state law should have been certified to the Minnesota Supreme Court before SCOTUS chimed in. Justice Sotomayor, authoring the dissent, explains that getting the state’s highest court’s input could have negated the majority’s “hypothetical line-drawing problems.”

Could Not Have Happened to a Better Bunch of Guys!

The Minnesota Vikings are a team most disliked by the National Football League.   The league is an eastern state Turkey Fest based upon money making.   Money is where the NFC East exists…..New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys,  and Washington Redskins are all the most favored….

But a second group of favored DOES exist……the AFC East where the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, and the New York Jets…..again heavily favored at National Football League Headquarters.

Both of these  National Football League groups are overwhelmingly favored by the league’s money  gurus to be advertised and displayed on game day television and review of games played thereafter.    Reffing at post season games tends to favor both the big money maker urban community teams as well.    Take a look at the reffing ruffing up of Vikings quarterback, Brett Favre in the NFC playoff in 2010.  New Orleans needed a heartbeat and certainly is a far richer source for $$$ than Minneapolis…..and the NFL obliged with a terribly foul officiated game.

Game officials apparently missed their opportunity to secure a Saint win,  although there was a very foul foul called by the game’s  head ref chief when the Vikings were on a drive to regain a two touchdown lead late in the game.

Even the referees failed to expect the following Minnesota Miracle:

President Trump Stars at NRA Meeting!

President Trump Addresses National Rifle Association Meeting

 

For the fourth year in a row, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence deliver remarks at the “National Rifle Association 147th Annual Meeting and Exhibit” in Dallas on Friday. Last year, he became the first sitting president to appear since Reagan, declaring that the “assault” on the Second Amendment had ended.

Asked why Trump was attending, given the current political tensions around gun violence, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said this week that safety was a “big priority.” But, she added, “We also support the Second Amendment, and strongly support it, and don’t see there to be a problem with speaking at the National Rifle Association’s meeting.”

President Trump Hosts 2017 NCAA Football National Champions Alabama…

President Trump Joins Football Champions in Prayer!

DOES THE ACLU KNOW ABOUT THIS?

On Tuesday, the University of Alabama football team visited President Trump at the White House. Trump honored the team for winning another national championship.

The visit featured an impromptu prayer:

Shortly after President Trump delivered his remarks, a group of players approached him and, after exchanging a few words, began to pray. The huddle showed the president bowing his head while a player placed his hand on Trump’s shoulder as he prayed for him.

Star punter JK Scott initiated and led the prayer:

Standing in the risers on the White House south lawn, Scott said he was overwhelmed with compassion when Trump took the podium.

“It had nothing to do with him being the President of the United States,” Scott said. “It had everything to do with him being a man, just being a son. It went from praying for the president to a place of truly praying over this man because God wants to touch him and God wants to show him he loves him.”

It required some quick action for the two-time Ray Guy Award finalist working to be drafted later this month. Trump was shaking hands with a few players after leaving the stage.

“And he looked right at me,” Scott said.

Stepping forward to shake his hand, Scott made the request.

“I said ‘Hey, Mr. Trump, would you let me pray over you,” Scott recalled. “He said ‘Yeah, come on.”

From there, Scott put one hand on Trump’s shoulder and the other on his chest.

“And I prayed literally what the lord was saying in my heart,” Scott said.

Teammates joined the impromptu circle. . . .

When it was over, the president had a message for Scott.

“He said ‘Thank you so much. That was so beautiful,’” Scott said. “Then he gave me a hug.”

Tim Tebow, that boy any father could love, Is Still Lovable

Tim Tebow’s Unlikely Quest Moves To The Next Level–Again

In case you too are kinda sick of all the turmoil and chaos and criminal probes and anger, this one’s for you. But can you handle heartwarming news?

Tim Tebow was moved up in the Mets farm system this week to the Eastern League’s Double-A Rumble Ponies in Binghamton, N.Y. He’d never even been to Binghamton before Monday. Now, they’ll never want to see him leave, the famously faithful man who at 30 is trying to make it to the MLB bigs after the NFL cut the Heisman Trophy winner.

Stepping to the plate on a frigid upstate night in his first at-bat in his first Double-A game Thursday, Tebow took the first pitch and sent it out of sight down the right-field line clean over the Warner’s Gas sign. A three-run homer and a 5-0 lead against the Portland Sea Dogs, a Red Sox affiliate.

You know what? In his first at-bat last April for the lowly Class A Columbia Fireflies, Tebow launched a two-run rocket to left. It wasn’t always all that great in his first learning season in the Mets minor league system. But later he was promoted to the Mets’ St. Lucie team.

As we wrote here last July, a funny thing happened:

Attendance soared, even for away games way up in New Jersey. They couldn’t make No. 15 Tebow shirts fast enough. People drove long distances just to be around him. It certainly wasn’t always his hitting or fielding.

J.J. Cooper over at Baseball America cleverly studied the 14-team league’s average attendance this year and found crowds much larger for Tebow games, sometimes twice the size of non-Tebow games. He estimates the son of missionaries who started his children’s charity before college graduation brought the league a minimum extra $1.6 million this year.

The attraction was Tebow, the way he wears fame humbly, talks respectfully to everyone, especially youngsters clamoring, not always politely, for his autograph or just to bask briefly in his gaze. The look in the youngsters’ eyes. And their parents’. And on the faces of the special-needs kids he brings to games or organizes proms for.

It’s an incongruous sight, a hulking Tebow sleeping on the bus floor with baseball wannabes 10 years his junior. But he’s encouraging them and taking extra batting practice and all the coaching he can get.

At a welcome news conference this week he said:

Maybe my teammates can learn from. You can never let your identity be defined by cheers or boos. Because, honestly, it’s great to have support, but it can change really fast And the same people cheering you an inning later can boo. And you need to understand your identity has to be found in different places…As an athlete you have to have tunnel focus and a vision and a goal and that can’t be swayed by 4-for-4 or 0 for your last 12.

Tebow’s latest homer came at a good time. His Double-A debut drew Jeff Wilpon, Met’s chief operating officer, to the game.

“We look forward to having him perform and move up the system, which he’s doing,” Wilpon said. “That’s why he’s here — moving up the chain. He did well last year in A ball. Now, he’s got to prove himself here and probably have to go to Triple-A at some point.”

By the way, here’s video of Tebow’s Binghamton home run. Listen to the crowd.
