    But this is what happens when a broadly interpreted Commerce Clause and General Welfare clause suddenly put the federal government in a position where its not regulating things in a way that states are clearly prohibited from doing.

    The whole thing is a complete constitutional cluster$#@!

    Indeed, the court is playing softball. To go further, Congress will need to extend the moritorium and then one or more landloards sue.
    Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.

    Congress has to create such a move, so we'll see what happens.
    Biden knew what the court would do. He defied it. They slapped him in the face.

    How could he defy a court that hadn't ordered anything. He said what he did, the court made a ruling and now he has to live with it.

    The court told him it was unconstitutional when it allowed the moratorium because it would soon expire. He ignored them. They slapped him in the face for it. Even Roberts joined in.

    Christian Charity is about taking in those in need by choice, be it a home, church, or even a community providing shelter. It has nothing to do with forcing people to take in others without compensation on private property. Something the Constitution actually forbids in the case of the military and private homes because the British Colonial Army pulled that stunt.

    You have us confused with ignorant people.

    This nonsense got started with DACA and needs to stop.

    Where is the absent leadership in the Congress who should object strongly from both parties!

    My son rented his finished basement to his brother in law in Atlanta. He hasn't paid rent since the beginning of the year and because he leaves the water running and all the lights on has increased dramatically my son's utility expenses. He will come into the main house and take food for himself without paying for any of it. My son wants to evict him but cannot because of unconstitutional laws or regulations.

    And BTW, @midcan5, there is no rule that "Christians" or those who are willing to sacrifice themselves on the altar of altruism can't allow people to live rent free forever if they so choose.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    I believe that was a CDC thing, not Biden.
