Rednecks need automatic firearms to protect themselves from insults? Muzzle
loading muskets can't get the job done? I believe it is my constitutional
right to treat anybody I want with disrespect and contempt and I intend to
do so if they are disreputable and contemptible.

Which part? I sure don't agree with the Electoral College, nor do I think
its right that Dakota with 1.16 million people in it get 4 Senators but
California with 39.51 million people in it only get 2. And I don't think
religious freedom should have been specifically mentioned because if you
have freedom of speech and assembly you get that automatically; so as it is
if I do something for a non-religious reason it could be unconstitutional
but if I do the exact same thing for a religious reason it's
constitutional. Oh and I don't think slavery was a very good idea either.

You agree completely with every single word? Don't you think a black man
might be worth a little bit more than 3/5 of a white man, don't you think
he's at least 65% as good?

Yeah you're probably right, the Vichy judges would vote as a block in a 5
to 4 decision, the NRA would start a lobbying campaign, and in a matter of
weeks private citizens owning H-Bombs would be legal in Wyoming, Oklahoma,
and West Virginia.

Me too. I also like my mother and apple pie.
