HAPPY CONSTITUTION DAY

This is a day worth noting..........The New York Times does.........sort of.  Actually, it seems to blame the Tea Party for "fighting over it" on a day "devoted" to the Constitution :-)  Check THIS out.  Apparently, the New York Times thinks the Tea Parties have made the Constitution "sexy again."  ??


Happy Constitution, America.......is it taught in your public schools, folks?  Check this out from the NY Times article:
Constitution Day is hardly sweeping the nation — Tea Party Patriots could not quantify how many schools it had persuaded to participate. Still, if both sides want Americans to be talking more about the Constitution, they are succeeding. Many schools were passing out pocket-size Constitutions, in addition to the Tea Party Patriots coloring books.
In Orange County, Calif., high school students planned to watch a reenactment of Gideon v. Wainwright, the landmark case concerning the Sixth Amendment’s guarantee to a fair trial, including right to counsel. And in Nevada City, Calif., middle schools planned to show the now classic “Schoolhouse Rock” segment about the Constitution, with the preamble, sung folky, as its refrain."

HERE is Obama's contribution.   I'd rather he just followed it, wouldn't you?

Mark 5:9 - Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many."

Blame the "Tea Party", indeed.

Unbelievable.

Stupidity has a new name.

And it's NOT a Bonus Army.

“It has evolved to the point where it seems many in the Tea Party believe the entire 20th century is unconstitutional,” said Doug Kendall

Hell, everything after the Civil War for some of them.

But as we know when you encouter an extreme reactionary resistance to change you are dealing with fear.
The important question is just what do they fear.

I own a piece of Wall Street.

As does anyone else with a 401(k).

Ducky's here said...

Man, you even give gun loons a black eye, Ticker.

Z said...

The left has no shame...yes, they want Americans to "Follow all the hell holes of the world and occupy Wall Street.." Great idea, huh?

Z said...

Ducky, I wouldn't talk extreme anything if I were a leftwinger today; you not marching on Wall Street today yourself?

Pris said...

Those of us who watch Glenn Beck knew that this was planned for, on Sept.17th.

Interesting isn't it, that Constitution Day is their choice, don't you think?

I also find it curious that Bloomberg warned of riots due to the fact people can't get jobs.
That seems to me, to be most irresponsible and inflammatory of a Mayor. Sort of like yelling "fire" in a crowded theater.

"Anonymous" is not so anonymous. It's organized by the far left. And I'm afraid it is just the beginning. They've been trying to whip up their people to show up and carry this off.

I'm hoping it's a big dud!

"But as we know when you encouter an extreme reactionary resistance to change you are dealing with fear.

Ducky, what we see is a leadership now in power, which considers the Constitution flawed, and has been issuing law, by fiat, and trampling the Constitution.

As for extreme reactionary resistance, The Tea Party movement is not extreme, it's mainstream America, it is operating within our system, not outside it. We love America, and we love freedom, something you'll never understand!

Furthermore, change is not necessarily a good thing as many countries have discovered the hard way.

It depends on what the change is, and the change you want, is evil, and either you know it, or you're as ignorant as you appear to be.

Btw, what is it you and your extreme far leftists fear? Everyone and everything you demonize?

Capitalism/Free markets? The Constitution? Conservatives? The Tea Party movement? Republican Candidates? Conservative black people? Conservative women? The rich?

Quite a list I'd say.

Silverfiddle said...

Right Ducky... We should all get in line and goose step behind whichever statist strongman the People's Democratic Party picks for us.

And we should be grateful for whatever rights they dole out to us, right?

Obamacare and other statist monstrosities would leave the founders horrified at what we've become.

Gun loons? What do you propose to use when your pasty white ass is surrounded by a local flash mob? Your Obama / Biden bumper sticker? You going to show them War and Peace or a porno flick to calm them down?

Of course you're in Gassachewsetts so you're not allowed a weapon...other than a Trojan to put over your head. That way you can suffocate rather than be allowed to own a weapon to defend yourself or your family. It's easier to lump everyone into loons and "non loons" right?

Loons...people who expect that a state would grant constitutional guarantees to their citizens...rather than deny them?

And Non Loons? Those lazy, parasites who suck each and everyone of us dry with their pitiful lives...and then expect us to protect / save them from their own stupidity?

Mass used to be one hell of a lot freer when men like Adams and other heros had guns to fight their enemies.

You should know that your state, a commonwealth, was considered a country before it was a state. And it was a hell of a lot of gunpowder that gave you and the rest of your dimwits citizens freedom.

And without blinking an eye...twerp that you are...you've insulted and mocked every man or woman from Massachusetts that has put on a uniform and defended their country.

You've insulted the bravery and honor of those from the First Revolutionary War, the Civil War, WW1, WW2, Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq and enlisting...VOLUNTARILY....to serve this country. And that includes LT. Colnel Scott Brown...Junior senator from Mass.
And you don't deserve him either.

Yet, even the Irish who were taken off the boats they immigrated on and were slapped into blue uniforms....deserve more respect and admiration than you ever will. Your ancestors are alive and well...because some "LOON", picked up a gun. You arrogant POS.

"We love America, and we love freedom, something you'll never understand!"

How uncouth...how jingoistic....how middle class....how parochial...how silly we "LOONS" are, eh Prisc?

/sarc off

"How uncouth...how jingoistic....how middle class....how parochial...how silly we "LOONS" are, eh Prisc?"

Hi Imp, yep, and proud of it!
Amen brother!

Speedy G said...

Looks like the cops kept them moving/marching. No shanty-town bonus army.

Speedy G said...

Looks like they're equipped to sneak back in, though...

Z said...

Speedy, I wonder what that bunch thought would happen...what they hoped to ruin

Speedy G said...

They want to launch an "Arab Spring" in America. They're coming to Freedom Plaza in DC next month to "occupy DC". I hope its' a bigger bust that Wall St. was.

Bd said...

Too bad Bush trampled the Constitution beyond recognition. And the Tea Party really hates anything the Constitution stand for in terms of equality for it's citizens.

WomanHonorThyself said...

thanks Z for the precious reminder! keep the faith my friend!!..:)

Wow, another right wing bed wetter whose afraid of the dark.

Actually I was in the subway when the idiotic Boston cops charged a group in Southie who had been texting to hit the beach,no big deal. Drove them back into the Red Line and the damn cars were packed as full as your underwear when you see a big scary Muslim.

Z said...

the left's hilarious..

Ducky, you read AOW's blog, you read this one....you saw 9/11, and you still don't get it, do you.
That might get dangerous to us all some day; I hope not.
But, of course, if Conservatives say a thing about protecting ourselves, we hear from the left that WE HATE ALL MUSLIMS! :-)
that's not going to work anymore, Ducky; especially not here, trust me.

Bd..grow up

Ducky is a specialist at setting up straw men.

Straw man #1: People on the right wet beds and are afraid of the dark.

Straw man #2: American patriots fill their pants when they see muslims.

Ducky, sounds like you are mistaking us for your kind.

Warren said...

Nostradumbass, (Ducky) is also a flaming hypocrite. He keeps a colt Python .357 magnum under his bed. (Bet you thought I forgot that gem didn't you duck crap).

(He confessed to it in a moment of duress when his scrip for psychotropic drugs ran out on a Sunday.)

He said it was in case the SHTF but I suspect it a suicide piece in case the (MOSAD) kicks down the flop house door and rousts him out of his cot.

Elmers Brother said...

I seem to remember duhkkky saying he owned a .50 Cal also

Warren said...

No, EB. That was me!

I duck hunt with it.

(I always did hate the taste of duck)

LOL

Elmers Brother said...

Yeah its greasy.

beamish said...

Too bad Bush trampled the Constitution beyond recognition.

How else was he going to run the economy from Crawford while Obama hits the golf course?

Ticker said...

Ya sure Duckbutt with fools like you running around spouting your socialist BS and your fool buddies calling for the dismantling of the US I'd damn sure rather be a live and free gun loon as you call them than a slave fool like you .

And Duckass, The Constitution beats Mein Kampf, the Socialist Manifesto and the rest of the damn drivel you and your asshole buddies would have us living under. I took an oath some 48 years ago to defend the Constitution and to my recollection I have not been asked to , nor have I relinquished my belief in that oath.
So Duchass, I'll laugh at your fool comments as do the rest of the folks here. Now run along and play with yourself instead of interrupting the grown up folks in their conversations.

That's what the left does.

Either side step, deflect or label.

It's because there is a certain lack of courage and *balls*.

Speedy G said...

Meanwhile... the protest against Wall St. continues... completely unnoticed by the world. Even the Left is embarrassed...
