Clause 2,
In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.

Looks like Judge Susan Bolton, Attorney General Eric Holder, and our illustrious Constitutional Scholar didn't read the Constitution…. Why am I not surprised?

Note..... same goes for California's Prop 8.

So you're saying this can directly to the Supreme Court, bypassing other courts.

That seems to be the way that clause reads. It wouldn't surprise me one bit to find that that isn't the way it is read though.

See your own sig.

You don't understand it, so it's wrong? Interesting theory.
No, I was commenting on how well American's sig fits the analysis that you posted.

"Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure." -- Thomas Jefferson יהוה
Apparently this is no longer so.

The first sentence in my sig is how conservatives view the law, and the second sentence is how liberals view the law.
