The Constitution is short; read it!
Mark Twain said it is better to remain silent and be thought stupid than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. The multitudes are removing all doubt on social media. Too many of them are “our people.”
There may be no stupid questions but there are some stupid social media posts — eye rolling and face planting, Gomer Pyle at-the-gas-station stupid. Posted by people who are low on blinker fluid.
One RITO* (*Republican In Trump Only) trumpets his dumb-fookery by concluding that since the Founders refused to take orders from King George 3, today’s patriots should ignore the U.S. Congress. Now, class, where does that leave us? DNA? (Damn Near Afghanistan?)
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer should be impeached, according to the social media feed we get at the Werkes. Please show us where the Constitution of the United States provides for impeaching a member of Congress. They can be removed by a two-thirds vote of their membership, which is unlikely since both Democrats were elected to leadership by majority vote. (Article 1, Section 5)
Another patriot declares he will ignore all laws that are unconstitutional. If it is unconstitutional, it is not law, n’est-ce pas? The implication is that this You Tube jurist will rule for himself which laws violate the Constitution, the courts be damned. Why did Madison and Jefferson even bother!
Gave up what wealth?
As ubiquitous as panhandling on Madison’s median strips is the meme that Donald Trump gave up his wealth to serve as #45. Was crucified and buried and on the third day ascended into heaven where he sits at the right hand of … oh, never mind.
Trump put his pile in a blind trust. He did NOT “give up his wealth!” Number #45 didn’t miss too many golf outings at private country clubs (we don’t fault him for doing so). Mar-a-Lago seems a cut above Jimmy Carter’s peanut farm — not that Camp David is too shabby. Jeff Bezos can spend 11 minutes in outer space but he has nothing as bitchin’ as Air Force One. President rides in back of a bullet-proof limousine with its own Zip Code. Lives in an historic house served by butlers, cooks, cleaning ladies, and valets. Walking distance to the office. Guys on the roof with guns! How cool is that!
The January 6 “Capitol breachers” say they upheld the Constitution by disrupting (however momentarily) a constitutionally mandated process. Talk about destroying the village in order to save it!
Of today’s Know Nothings, Jonah Goldberg recounts one insurrectionist who gained fame drinking Nancy’s stash of Napa Valley wine. Intoxicated by his newfound infamy, this Election Denier announced he is running against his hometown legislator. The TV reporter explains to the low-intelligence bloke that his intended opponent is actually a congresswoman in Washington DC, not a state rep in Concord, New Hampshire.
“Oh, I guess I gotta run against that, then,” the man says. Goldberg:
I don’t know jack about this guy beyond what I just told you. He may be a genius at canasta. He could be a hair’s breadth from completing his cold fusion reactor in his garage. For all I know, he may be the only person in the world who has Kobayashi Maru-ed 12-minute brownies by baking them in only seven minutes. But when it comes to politics, this guy is a moron; the “back to work” candidate isn’t willing to put any work at all into figuring out what he’s doing.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: We belittle the Left for operating on feelings, not fact. Can we please not commit the same error? Resume teaching civics. A democratic republic’s biggest weakness is that some assembly is required.
What do YOU tell the idiot who’s ‘on your side’?
Yep, I CAN tell who’s on my side ! “Who ya gonna call ?”
Roof Koreans are the strongest global fighting force the human race has ever seen
When your looting a store and the roof starts speaking Korean
There are three Korea’s. The North, the South, and the Roof.
Minnesota is calling for the only heroes who can save them!
Thank you, Dave. Now if you can teach them to read.
Amen. The key to success in politics is to let the other guys be the idiots.

How’s that working out in Madison?

Not so good, but I blame that on people not being able to recognize sheer lunacy when it smacks you in the face. Like when BLM rioted and looted in downtown Madison and Mayor Satya proudly thanked them. She followed that up with demands that the baseball bat/bullhorn extortionist be released immediately. I don’t recall if that was before or after her picture appeared posing for a photo op with an intern from her office, who now resides in the Dane County Jail awaiting trial in the double homicide, execution murders of a doctor and her husband. Yet, she is said to be unbeatable presently. Insanity.
Ok, we get it David, you hated Trump and all that went with him. Even called him Orange Duce, seems like you are the one that is having the issue letting go at this point. When is your book or movie coming out, “Mr. Orangeman and how I learned to love failed insurrections”
Jeez do you need a hug?
Has Trump conceded? Did I miss that?
Well David, he conceded the day he left office and Harris\Xiden were sworn in. He may not like it, believe it or say it but votes were certified and electoral college cast it’s votes and he had to leave office. As I quote another sore loser, “At this point, what difference does it may Senator!”
Please more blogs about your garden, tractor, and the insane unnecessary tax and spend increases proposed by our Current State Executive Branch.
Along with the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights I think it is very important to read many of Abraham Lincoln’s words. He is my favorite President; no others even come close.
The address to the Young Men’s Lyceum http://www.abrahamlincolnonline.org/lincoln/speeches/lyceum.htm
The Cooper Union address
Address in Independence Hall
First Inaugural Address
The Gettysburg Address
And finally, The Second Inaugural Address
If you want to understand the history of the United States of America and the reasons we formed our form of government. A form of government that is: government of the people, by the people, for the people. If you really want to understand that form of government, the form of government our founders wanted for this great land of ours for all people and for all time. A form of government that many fought and many died for, in order to leave to their posterity, you need to read Lincoln.
