The Constitution

In one setting or the other, the Constitution is frequently used to decide specific court cases all the way down to personal disputes. This document is the very foundation on which our constitutional republic is formed, giving us a democracy like no other.

The United States of America is the greatest country ever founded, and I am proud to be an American and reside in this amazing land.

Every once in a while, as with most things, a misnomer will appear even in such a powerful document as the Constitution. Well, not so much in the Constitution, but what is believed to appear in the Constitution.

The separation of church and state is often touted to be part of the Constitution. Actually, the phrase is never used . . . go figure.

I guess you learn something every day . . . now, that’s a phrase that may not be written but I can honestly say is used most every day, for it flies between my teeth nearly that often.

I hope your week runs as smooth as silk and God shines his countenance upon you!

Nowhere Else Would I Want To Be

Last week being an electoral Tuesday, with its months of preparation, brings to mind how this great nation operates. I am passionate for our country, the foresight our founders used, and our amazing document, The Constitution. Sometimes it brings about situations for which I don’t care, but that’s okay as it was written for the greater good. To be more specific, the part I’m not crazy about; however, still stand by, is the first amendment’s partial protection, allowing lawyers to advertise according to the Supreme Court. I believe this verdict was handed down in 1977, and though I don’t recall what it was like then, today I rate the ambulance chasing lawyers and politicians the two things in this life I would never want to become.

There are exceptions to every rule even if those rules are constructed through a personal opinion. There are politicians I believe who are honest and care about their constituents; just as there are lawyers for whom I have the highest respect (even though I believe charging by the minute is a bit gratuitous for any profession).

There is no doubt that we reside in the greatest nation on this blue globe. God bless the USA!
