Once again, my days of Zen are interrupted by the extreme silliness of politics…….
Today is 17 September and is officially Constitution Day….personally, this is the day that we should celebrate with a national holiday……why? It is the day that the Constitutional Convention signed the US Constitution into being…….it should be celebrated because it brought into existence a unique form of government that has been copied world wide….it deserves a day more so than some of the ones we have now….but that is a debate for another day…….
Why do I bring this up? There seems to be some that are calling for the scraping of our Constitution and the writing of a new one, a more modern one, a more up to date one…….here is one of those people……http://bit.ly/lxHzYC
What do you think?
Personally, I think it is just plain silly! Why? Can you imagine that convention? Our politicians cannot agree on anything substantial and we want them to update our constitution? (pause here for the inevitable laughter)……can you imagine the silliness that would ensure trying to make a document that effects ALL citizens? Can you imagine of the absurdities that extremists would want to include in a new constitution? Look at the total waste of time and effort in Washington today….would a constitutional convention be any different?
Has the Magna Carta been “updated”?
You think we have a theater of the absurd now in Washington….but it would look like statesmanlike debate compared to the totally ridiculous of a constitutional convention….we would not need Comedy Central anymore, the convention would foot that bill to a tee.
