There was an excavator blocking my driveway this morning.

  • “Obama is the most dangerous American alive … because he would eliminate free enterprise in this country.”… says the man that has made $6 billion under the President.

  • The First Amendment to the United States Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”. That is to say, the GOVERNMENT cannot infringe upon an individual’s freedom of speech, press, assembly, religion, or redress of grievances. The next time someone on the Right has an urge to claim the First Amendment as a defense, I would really appreciate it if they actually read it and understood that it prevents the government from censoring you, but says absolutely dick about non-governmental groups, and that when you say dickish things, people have the right to say “Hey, you said dickish things, and I don’t like that.” and you don’t get to say “FIRST AMENDMENT, BITCHES”.

  • It would not surprise me in the least to see this repeated ad infinitum this election cycle.
  • Lessons learned.
  • YOU DON’T SAY?
  • You know you’re in bad shape when the clan of beanie wearing, panty-sniffing pedophiles goes “That’s fucked up.”
