    Good. Please stick to responding to what I'm actually saying, or stop responding to my posts.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    A perfect kick-off to a Republican led house, as the next two years will be all about show and nothing about substance.

    Why should you find what our founding fathers did to be embarrassing? Slavery was something that was done all over the world and it happened a long time ago. I am glad our founding fathers had slaves, wiped out a lot native Americans and other things that whiny libs like us to feel bad about. Almost everybody in this country today is a by-product of those things and without those things we would not exist and the US would not exist. Apologizing or feeling embarrassed or bad about the bad things our foundlings fathers did is something only stupid whiny libs do.



    It's not exactly piss-poor, and if the Democrats had pulled this stunt I would've given them exactly the same treatment.
    You made a thread about republicans not reciting something that is obsolete in the constitution. It is exactly piss poor.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It wouldn't hurt. I'd also support reading the federalist and anti-federalist papers, too.

    the hell with the pointless, but very public civics exercise

    what congress needs is some math lessons

    emphasize what must happen when the numbers are less than zero ... especially if the end result needs to be positive

    Well, this is it, kids, let the LOLPOCALYPSE begin -- Glenn Beck agreed with me this morning.

    I heard him building up to it while I was driving to work. I begged him not to do it, to let me keep what's left of my self-respect, but he didn't listen. He literally called the Republicans cowards for not reading the unabridged Constitution.

    Which one of you asshats is on his payroll?

    My only consolation was that we went back to our separate corners about 2 minutes later. He stated that the only portion of the Constitution which fit the definition of "progressive" (which he defined as avoiding a revolution and incrementally deploying your agenda over time) was the 3/5ths compromise.

    Considering the fact that Massachusetts ratified the Constitution on the condition that the Bill of Rights was coming shortly thereafter, either the Bill of Rights was similarly "progressive," or the entire original Constitution was.
