The Constitution doesn't specifically allow for these things and many other items yet they exist and are constitutional, or were considered constitutional for a long time. The Constitution doesn't specifically allow for welfare, medicare, or medicaid, but the judicial branch hasn't struck them down.
You want to keep playing because I can find a million things you like about the government that isn't specifically allowed in the Constitution
You have failed once again to make an intelligent point but then I have come to expect no more.
All liberals who want to pay a higher tax I say go ahead pay your heads off. Oh you did already.
For the thousandth time Tax cuts alone will never fix any economy with corresponding reductions in the crazy over spending binge the Trifecta of Doom has us in.

the commander and chief can impose DADT last I checked
I don't care-I think its a stupid rule.
the judicial branch was coopted under FDR and until he threatened to pack the court, most of his New Deal was being struck down
find say 10 things that I like that isn't allowed by the constitution
I doubt you have the education to even understand the constitution enough to do that
So tell me, how are these things Constitutional when they aren't specifically mentioned? I'll even use you're exact same question:
read (Constitution) and get back to me on where in the constitution DADT and defining marriage are authorized
1) DADT is a rule imposed by the CiC--the Constitution gives the CIC such powers. I don't agree with it but I agree it is power that the president has
2) gay marriage is a state issue thus the US constitution really isn't at issue unless it violates a constitutional right
again I don't care, if gays want to marry that's fine with me.
you aren't doing to well on diagnosing my positions
that million is looking rather hard to reach
