Kaiser Wilkie, Supreme Court Review, Corey Jackson discussed on THINK! America

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Their do worth or value is Corey Jackson just said, it was good to get things from a person who has been in that kind of situations perspective, but I do feel that the education that student athletes get while they're attending college is a good trade off for the time that they spend doing their student athlete duties as. Martina your thoughts. Yeah. Speaking as a college professor, I would agree with what Corey said, universities, do not spend enough time helping with career issues with athletes, and there is a quite a bit of an investment of time with the athletes. Concentrating on their athletic ability rather than scholarships. So what is the school for is that for academics? Or is it for sports? I think it comes down to that. This issue isn't leaving. I'm glad we got him on the air. Let's switch gears though, guys. There's an old saying that says the bureaucracy always wins the bureaucracy always wins, it appears true with corporations and with federal agencies. The for example. Can call mudhole the waters of the United States. And if they make rules about the mudhole, they are the arbitrator of win that law or that rule about the mudhole is broken. Even the president is not immune from agency interpretations. So the agencies themselves or these bureaucracies at the federal level create the rules without any public input without input of a court. When cases go to court, the court goes back to the agency and says, well, you have a regulation on it. Therefore, they're the arbiter and not the court and not the public Martina your take. You know, it's a concept of who regulates the regulators, and it's the regulators to regulate the regulators. So it's that's the definition of bureaucracy. And this happened to a friend of mine that owns a ranch in Colorado. They deemed out a waterhole out in the backyard as a wetlands and under the auspices of the EPA, it's ridiculous. I really feel like they operate on the that they are only accountable to themselves. And so they don't really seem to be bothered by how their actions affect the people around them. They only go by their rules, and they'll play by them when they so choose there are several cases on this which has fueled a gross explosive growth, even in the power of executive branch agencies to be the judge the jury and punishment to those who break their laws. They don't. Monitor for themselves. They're this large executive branch estate. If you will with EPA just being one example, but there's other branches of this. They have some cream control. All started kind of back in the Woodrow Wilson administration. But then rulings at the supreme court seemed to bolster up the largess of the administrative state. Now, there is a case called Kaiser Wilkie, it's a veteran's benefit case, and it involves the marine seeking retroactive benefits or his PTSD, and it hinges on the VA's interpretation of one word and the word is relevant. Whether something was relevant in applicable federal regulations is what this case hinged on in the man's petition for the supreme court review. He submitted two questions for the for the court. And the court agreed to review whether the court should rule prior overrule prior cases or not so at all got into the woods Bri. Bryson the VA interpreted for their part its own regulation in Kaiser that the documents on his P T S D were not relevant to a prior request that he had and therefore he took it all the way the supreme court now he might win. But it's all this kind of micromanaging of their own offices their own bureaucracy. And in this case he could win he could not win, but it hinges on PTSD treatments and help for this particular event. How do you look at all of that? Don't you think it's high time that the supreme court really take this case, and sort of overthrow all these back other cases and be a the. Judge over the administrative state. This was probably one was interesting cases that this room court is focused on in quite a while because this one if they ruled in favor of Kaiser could definitely shakeup foundation of how many of the executive bureaucracies function and how they operate because it.
