Happy birthday to the greatest document made by man!  There is no document greater; other than the word of God!


“The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse: You cannot post “Thou shalt not steal,” “Thou shalt not commit adultery,” and “Thou shalt not lie” in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.”

I would have to say I understand it up to a point. All the nuances of interpreting it for application to modern problems I am inclined to let experts (such as SCOTUS members writing opinions, both majority and dissent) explain that. I generally, when I give enough effort, am able to understand their explanations, though.


Happy 225th (of adoption).

Bump, Sarge!  Blood has ran for and will run for it time and time again!  It is who we are and will continue to be!  There are so many levels to the American way!

Also that. I don't ever envy the alternatives.

Ditto.  I'm in LOVE with the US Constitution.  And from the way it acts, I can tell the US Constitution loves me too.

Congress doesn't read it. They have advisors and staff and interns and PACS to tell them how to "interpret" it.

Bump, A qualification to be in political office should be to recite it word for word and pass a 500 question test and an essay explaining what they read and understand!

I love the Constitution.


You know there is a problem when our government, which is restricted by this great document, spends most of its time trying to get around it or flat out ignoring it.

As does anyone with an agenda!  Sad but true!

I purchase pocket copies to hand out free of charge to all academy graduating classes. I tell them this is who you work for, "THE PEOPLE". Never forget that. What burns me is when someone says my Constitution of The United States of  America is a fluid document and changes with the times. HOGWASH!! It  is a black and white document. If Congress adhered strictly to it we would not be in the mess we are today.
