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!

I See Our Country As Having The Greatest Government In The World. The Problem Comes When You Throw Human Beings Into The Mix

I don’t care much for politics. In fact, it would be a pretty safe bet to place stating I despise the very word. It’s not to say I don’t approve of our democracy or for the sake of accuracy, constitutional republic, because I do. I see our country as having the greatest government in the world. The problem comes when you throw human beings into the mix.

 Now, in this mix, you end up with money grubbing, power hungry, kittens in a pile of sand-sized clay particles trying to cover one another, like turds in a litter box.

I live within a couple of hours of downtown Washington, DC and can feel my IQ dropping the closer I get to this political haven.

It would be great to see these boys and girls playing nice for a change, instead of day after day inventing new episodes of “Romper Room Gone Wild.”

Oh well, I suppose you can’t ask for any more than your given, although it would be nice to incorporate a little civility. Even if I have a hard time assimilating the notion of a political climate, I watch the news every day for that very reason. I may not like it but I need to know what’s going on. I’ve given you enough to think about for the upcoming week.

Have a great one!
