    Where in the Constitution is this language? I cannot find it. The EEOC is not part of the language of the Constitution.

    Again, so how does this work again? Here is the opportunity for you to show the Government teacher just how much more you know.
    Are you really a government teacher? Come on.

    You ask me this because .... what exactly? Is that language in YOUR copy of the US Constituton? Its not in mine. There is nothing in it about the federal government guarantying equal opportunity as Conservative claimed repeatedly but could not support with the language.

    I wish I had a dollar for every time over the last few decades I heard somebody - usually a conservative- talk about their "Constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". I could take a nice vacation and get away from all this snow.

    People should read the Constitution to see what is really in there.

    Read the 5th Amendment. No conservative ever told you that the constitution guarantees equal opportunity.

    Perhaps you should have read the thread a bit more thoroughly before telling me what is and what is not being alleged here.

    Equal opportunity is guaranteed by the Constitution for ALL Americans.


    And he said this many times in this thread.

    That is almost as erroneous as claiming that the "general welfare clause" somehow delegatetes to congress the power to create welfare-redistributionist programs.

    One of your fellow conservatives - Conservative to be exact - claimed that

    Equal opportunity is guaranteed by the Constitution for ALL Americans.
    Do you agree with him or do you agree with me that such a claim is not found in the Constitution?

    the part where you babbled on without saying which part of the previous posts you were referring to.

    We have a serious problem in this country when there are "civics" teachers who do not understand that equal rights means equal opportunity. Try to prevent someone from equal opportunity under the Constitution. Glad you aren't teaching any more.

    We have a serious problem in this country when somebody is so pigheaded that they cannot admit that they made a mistake in saying that the Constitution guarantees EQUAL OPPORTUNITY which is clearly does not.

    You are one amazing person Conservative. Most people at least stop digging. Not you. You send out for a backhoe.

    One of your fellow conservative posters, American, said this about it

    No conservative ever told you that the constitution guarantees equal opportunity.
    You even shocked him.
