What if our Constitution was written today, not in 1787 (227 years ago)?
I wonder what it would say. It was ratified in September, 1788, in a world of written (pen and ink) criticisms. Today, CNN, FOX, Jon Stewart, tweets, Facebook, MSNBC, EXXON, Bank of America, and born-again Christians would have all weighed in.
Even I would have commented through my newly-found “skill” of texting. I am not sure that it would have ever been completed! Perhaps it was simpler then. Perhaps then one thought before speaking (texting, tweeting, email), knowing that you were responsible for your words, and for the future.
I challenge all: Read the Constitution, our Constitution, and think, “What if our Constitution was written today, not in 1787.”
What would you change, and why?
Well, so far, no answers. Interesting. Are there no thinkers? Democrats, Republicans, or other fanatical leaders?
Let me tickle your mind. The Constitution, 1787, and the Declaration of Independence, 1776, were written to be the God all-full Gospel for the rest of eternity. True, false? Just a question, of course. How would you answer this question? I think, if we are man, we would be sure that the rights of man, as described by, well, who, really? Just what are the rights of man? Do you know? If yes, why do you know? Who said man had any rights at all? And, whoever said it, well, what right did he have to say it?
What law said Putin could not overwhelm the Ukraine? Who said Hitler could not take over the Sudentenland? No one, of course.
Why do I think we have been here before?
Sex-obsessed men pose problems for today’s women
I really hate to have to disagree with Sheena Barnett in her column on May 27, as I can already hear the howls of indignation from the feminists.
However, scientific research has concluded that the average man thinks about sex every 15 seconds. This leads me to use my common sense and determine that revealing, provocative attire by women in public can, and too often does, lead to trouble particularly in this day and time when self-indulgence, sexual or otherwise, is being glorified and promoted by legions of hawkers of lawlessness for a buck in every medium.
To encourage women to “let it all hang out” is irresponsible, dangerous and just plain wrong.
