    Hoodwinked by the gun industry. How much did YOU spend on your paranoia this year?

    Gonna have to rethink this evolution thing.

    The Minutemen on the left represent the “well-regulated militia” described in the 2nd Amendment. The dingbat on the right (literally and politically) does not.

    Scurrilous.

    Yesterday I got an on-line petition (I know, ha ha) to make a Constitutional Convention. They want to make laws regulating congress pensions and their insurance.
    With all this other stuff going on?
    But yes, amendments can be amended.

    The Bear Arms issue will wind up in the Supreme Court, likely after new vacancies have been filled with new judges.

    My understanding is that Jefferson, at least, fully expected that the Constitution would be periodically rewritten top-to-bottom, not just through amendment. That’s why there’s provision for doing so. It’s a legal document, after all, not Holy Writ. If he were alive today, I suspect he’d be mighty surprised that we’re still operating on the 1791 version (although whether or not he’d be pleased is a separate question).


    Still, can you imagine what what a Constitutional Convention would be like nowadays? It would take 30 years just to agree on a new Preamble, and even that would run to 100 pages.

    Guess what…. the revolution was fought by rebels… who won because they had arms…

    No, they won because the French helped. Who also had arms – like anyone else unless they were cut off.

    I’m also a little surprised at the idolising hero worship of the blokes who wrote the original one. Been elevated to godlike status and inviolable.

    Browsing through the editorials today, I see thst gun control is now taking a back seat to women in combat (hubba hubba) and tax/economic issues. Great attention span. Oh wait maybe it doesn’t have the support the gun control citizens need. As for the gun nut/conspiracy whack jobs as displayed on the right. Maybe they are not so nuts after all.

    Tell me anyone, why is the DHS gearing up for domestic confrontation?

    Oh come on read something that doesn’t come from your personal favorite source. Or are you truly close minded to the possibility that you may not have it exactly right?
