• We do the Bridge-Walks on Saturday mornings assuming no rain or other commitments. We meet at 7:45 a.m. and begin walking to the Golden Gate Bridge at 8:00 a.m. It's okay to arrive late; you'll just have to catch up or meet us after the turn at Fort Point. 7:45 a.m. SFYC-Marina parking lot to GGB & return, assuming a decent weather forecast. This is a walk TO, not over, the bridge, and back.

  • Description: Unless otherwise noted, all walks proceed as follows: we begin at the parking lot shown as Yacht Road on Mapquest adjacent to the north end of the Marina Green next to the St. Francis Yacht Club. We meet at 7:45 a.m. and at 8:00 a.m. ambling towards the Golden Gate Bridge, which is about a mile-and-a-quarter away. If you're late, it's easy to catch up. The round trip takes about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours. There are comfort stations at each end. Snacks and a bookstore are at the Warming Hut near the Bridge. Plenty of birds and boats to see along the way. Bring a friend or child, a camera or binoculars. Dress for wind and weather. Drizzles don't bother, rainstorms will cancel. We talk about something, nothing, birds, plants, boats, whatever, and if it relates to Con-Law, so much the better, but that's not required. We enjoy ourselves, basically, by getting fresh air and taking a more or less brisk walk, depending on what stops we make to smell the flowers or view a bird.

The Constitution itself provides that it can be changed by the amendment process set forth in Article __ (5?).

It would be beyond stupid to enact a governing law for a new nation that couldn't be changed over the years when new conditions came into being or the provision for old conditions proved wanting.

The Constitution wasn't perfect the day it was ratified and it isn't perfect today.

Every time the U.S. Supreme Court makes a ruling on a constitutional issue that overrules a prior decision, it changes the constitution to that extent.

The Constitution is thus changed with some frequency, always because some people thought it was for the better, despite some who thought it was not. Both sides are freedom loving. Often constitutional decisions are made by a 5:4 vote.

The Constitution is our operating system and if you know anything about those, they change all the time. Just ask Bill Gates or Steve Jobs.

I have been reading articles about the many laws in California, civil and criminal, that violate the "Ex Post Facto" clause of Article 1, Section 9 of the US Constitution. According to the 'Legal Dictionary and Glossary' Ex Post Facto states that any law or rule that is passed after an act is committed is denied to the Congress or any state. Ex Post Facto (after the fact) is clear and precise as to meaning and intent. Congress nor any state can pass any law or rule today and make it apply to yesterday, whether it changes the existing law or rule, increases the punishment, extends time limits or changes qualifications. How does California, or any other state, get away with violating this important Article??? Every elected official, judge and government official/executive, federal or state, took an oath or affirmation to support and defend the US Constitution as the "Supreme Law of the Land"!!! Aren't the violators Traitors to the United States? And can't they be tried as such for breaking their oaths? I think our Constitution, and the Magna Carta, that the Constitution is based on, are the most important documents ever created by "Freedom Loving" people. Our Constitution should never be changed or modified- "EVER"- unless its for the good and doesn't change the original content!!!
