The first week of the year started off with a bang. Well, more of a loud laugh. The new majority in the House decided to demonstrate that they are “dedicated to our Constitution and the principles for which it stands” and hence used a couple hours to read the U.S. Constitution.
Well, they didn’t actually read the original version. They skipped the part (Section 2) that defines a slave as being three-fifths of a free person. The 13th Amendment did abolish slavery, but it didn’t apportion citizenship to the freed slaves. Two points for being free, but minus 10 for being morphed from property to aliens.
When they read the part about promoting the general welfare, did they think twice before initiating efforts to repeal health care coverage for tens of millions of Americans? When reading the First Amendment, did the baggers insist that they omit the part about separation of church and state?
Given current attitudes on civil liberties and personal freedoms, maybe they should have also omitted the “We the People” part?
