I just read this article by some dude going on about why the Feds can't order a nation wide standard for treating things like this Ebola quarantine deal like the one that Cuomo and Christie back tracked on because the Whitehouse suggested it was too harsh.
The guy seemingly goes out of his freakin' way to hint at it but never quiiiiite says why the Feds have their hands tied.
It's a long article too.
He just says that the Framers of the Constitution designed it that way, yadda yadda yadda, Federalist system, blah blah.
Could you not like, GOOGLE THE SUBJECT? Ever heard of Wikipedia?
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
It's not like seven out of ten people under forty have no clue what is in the Constitution anymore anyway.
That number goes down to almost zero the younger they are.
There are full grown adults that were born and educated here that can't even name the three branches of government for fucks sake!
It makes me want to scream when I see crap like this.
If you can muster enough words blathering on about why Obama can't just decree quarantine standards for the whole country like he would love to do, at least explain why in plain enough language that the average moron in this country can understand.
It would be the right thing to do.
