    Re: Federal judge holds Obama administration in contempt over drilling “permitorium”

    I love jailhouse lawyers who think they are familiar with the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. Activities in interstate commerce can be regulated. But inactivity cannot be regulated. This decision will be appealed to the Eleventh Circuit. Muy conservamento group of appellate jurists. They are likely to affirm the trial court decision. Then on to the Supreme Court where it will break down 4 to 4 with Justice Anthony Kennedy deciding for the whole country. Obama's riverboat gamble. I love this ****.

    Now that I've done that, prove me wrong. Or again are you a hypocrite?
    I really wish you'd stop calling me that, but fortunately I'm in a pretty good mood, so I won't respond in kind.

    Anyways, here ya go;

    Interior Department regulators acted with “determined disregard” by lifting and reinstituting a series of policy changes that restricted offshore drilling, following the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, U.S. District Judge, Martin Feldman of New Orleans ruled yesterday.

    “Each step the government took following the court’s imposition of a preliminary injunction showcases its defiance,” Feldman said in the ruling.

    “Such dismissive conduct, viewed in tandem with the re-imposition of a second blanket and substantively identical moratorium, and in light of the national importance of this case, provide this court with clear and convincing evidence of the government’s contempt,” Feldman said.

    Makes sense to me, but then, I'm not enamored by everything Obama does.
