    Constitution was read aloud during Congress

    I received an e-mail alert from GOA (Gun Owners of America)
    stating the U.S. Constitution was read aloud for the first time ever by the floor of Congress.

    http://gunowners.org/a010711.htm

    This was one response to it:
    "They are reading it like a sacred text," complained anti-Second Amendment Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who told The Washington Post that the "ritualistic reading" on the floor was "total nonsense" and "propaganda."
    Apparently some didnt get the message last November.

    It's heresy, and maybe treason. He should be tried and sentenced accordingly.

    No wait - his heresy is protected by the 1st Amendment.

    Of course, we all know that the 2nd Amendment protects the 1st Amendment.

    If he was in the Chinese government and said such things against their creed, he'd would have been thrown in prison. In North Korea, he would have been shot. But in New York, he'll probably just get voted back into office.

    ETA: And to think New York was one of the thirteen original colonies. What happened?

    When I heard that bonehead's remarks I just shook my head. I guess no one clued him in that to many of us, the Constitution is sacred text. The libs just don't get it. Well 2012 is coming. Here in Wisconsin we can help by tossing Herb Kohl.

    About time someone in DC read the document they derive their power of governance from. It's 200 some odd years late, but it's a start.

    Now they need to follow it.

    And yes, Kohl must go!
    In God I trust. Everyone else needs to keep your hands where I can see them.

    UNFORTUNATELY, the readers of our US CONSTITUTION did not feel it IMPORTANT to read the ENTIRE document.
    They left out any reference to the MISUNDERSTOOD by many 3/5ths clause ( it was a poison pill to slavery) and the 18th amendment that outlawed the consumption of alcohol.

    Many Dems did not attend. Apparently, the Constitution offends them.

    Heck, I have a copy on my Droid phone just to keep me occupied if I'm bored. This version also has lots of notes about the history, historic speeches, failed ammendments, Articles of Confederation, Declaration of Independence, etc. It's great (and free)!

    I watched it on CSPAN. Kind of boring though. Each politician read a sentence or 2, and then a person had to come and yield time to the next representative, they'd read a sentence or 2, and then the person would come back and yield time to the next representative. It made it take for ever. I'm sure there was some politicians who were thinking "What are we reading again...I forgot". I think it would have been better if each person read a section of it, rather than just a sentence. And, as said before, they didn't read the whole thing. I think they should have. But, leave it to politicians to take 200+ years to do something, and still get it wrong.

    I swear he has been dead for the last 10 yrs and just hasnt tipped over yet.

    I wouldnt be the least bit surprised to read he has been dead for a number of years and Fiengold would roll him in,then use a taped wooden stick to raise his arm so he could cast his vote one way or the other.Then Fiengold would vote just the opposite so they could cancel out each others vote on key issues.

    What's the name of the app?

Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair. Maybe the first thing one should demand of his sidearm is that it be unfair.” — Col. Jeff Cooper, GUNS & AMMO, January 2002

    Oh! Now that gives me an idea.

    Since cops like to scroll through seized cell phones, and seem to be allowed to do it by the courts, I think I'll just set up a folder titled "Cops, Look Here First", the first and only message inside will be:

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated...

    We must contact our lawmakers today, tomorrow and the next day to remind them of Constitutional Carry.
    Laws are not written because of the actions of many, they are wrtiten because of the inactions of many.

    How ridiculous. Did he not pay attention to the oath of office he had just said?

    Heh, heh. Why not also set the phone pass word as something too many cops would never think of:
    1. 4th Amend
    2. HEPZ (Heightened Expectation of Privacy Zone)
    3. Warrant Clause
    4. Truth (bwahahahahahaa! Some would never think of that!)

    What if you could reset the first screen to say: "This is a computer capable of telephonic and text communication. Get a warrant as for any other computer." As I understand it, Title 18 section 1030 or some such defines a computer so loosely as to be pretty much anything with a chip in it. So, certainly a cell phone would qualify as a computer by the misgovernment's own standards.
