    of such is fairly long. Not a few seem to be attempts to reenact South Carolina's attack on Fort Sumpter as in H.R.1047:

    Prohibits a federal agency from bringing a challenge against a state statute or constitutional provision which protects the right of employees to choose labor organization representatives through secret ballot elections.
    and this gem:
    H.AMDT.1128 to H.R.4310 An amendment numbered 47 printed in House Report 112-485 to limit funds authorized to be appropriated by this Act to any institution or organization established by the Convention on the Law of the Sea, including the International Seabed Authority, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, and the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf.
    Sponsor: Rep Duncan, Jeff [SC-3] (introduced 5/18/2012)      Cosponsors (None)
    Even Faux News published "Give the Law of the Sea Convention a fair hearing before deciding" and the author noted, among other things:
    Are claims that the U.S. will be able—as a non-party—to enjoy the Convention’s navigation and overflight rights as a matter of customary law theoretically and empirically sound?
    Too often the people these Red CD villages send are "local business" types with hardly a clue as to what they are meddling in. Kind of like sending in plumbers to do brain surgery. That is not to say some Democrats are dumb as slugs, but the sheer number of such in the TP/GOP ranks is both amazing and frightening in view of an increasingly  complex world we cannot control by economic or military might.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
