    There is no "welfare clause".

    The Preamble does not say "provide for the general welfare".

    "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

    Promote does not mean provide. "To promote the general welfare" defines the context to the Constitution and its mandates. Nothing more.

    It does not grant power, it is not law, and authorizes no legislation forcing a redistribution of wealth to citizens or industry as it has been twisted to mean.

    Do you always laugh when you're wrong?

    This is why nobody on the left should ever take the right wing seriously about our Constitution or Constitutional law.

    The preamble says to promote the general welfare not the common defense.

    With the right wing, I only need to check for those, "twice a day moments."

    See #268. You wrote "Providing for the general welfare is in our Constitution."

    That is wrong from the git-go. The Preamble does state "provide for the common defense."

    lol. Nobody takes the right wing seriously about the Constitution or Constitutional law.

    You have to read the rest of the Constitution and not appeal to ignorance.

    what is even funnier, is that there is no drug war clause in the Republican Doctrine, either.

    300W PSU?
    I don't think we are talking about the same BOXX machines.
    Unlike you, I am not a system builder, I'm a film editor, however I know that BOXX offers a lot more than what you quoted. No, it's aimed at gaming, you're correct, their stuff is mostly designed for film editing, compositing, color grading, audio sweetening, and graphics.

    But I can assure you that you may have some outdated material when it comes to their catalog.

    So the fuck what? You do realize that both republican and democrat parties have continued the failed war on drugs don't you?

    And just to remind you again, Dory, I am not a republican
