    Whats the fuck is up with the madness at the New York Times? Part of the Constitution protects it employee's rights to do their damn job.

    In this piece of shit article, the author actually claims that the US Constitution guarantees “relatively few rights.
    There are lots of possible reasons. The United States Constitution is terse and old, and it guarantees relatively few rights.
    The commitment of some members of the Supreme Court to interpreting the Constitution according to its original meaning in the 18th century may send the signal that it is of little current use to, say, a new African nation.
    And the Constitution’s waning influence may be part of a general decline in American power and prestige.

    The Constitution may soon hang by a thread, but it will be saved.

    It's probably intended to soften the outrage (if the liberal media was doing it's job) about supreme court Justice Ginsburg telling the people of Egypt not to model their new constitution on the freaking document she has sworn to uphold and protect, the US Constitution. She said South Africa did it better.

    You would be better suited getting water from a rock than to see this country doing a U-turn. I feel we have went past the point of no return.

    Don't that piss you off? The nerve of dip shits like that. I guess all the New York times cares about is the first amendment and only when it affects them.

    The ideals are more important than the words, is it impossible for a constitution to guarantee freedom without being a xerox of ours? Hardly.

    The NY Times had a list of the "top ten tourist destinations in the world" in their magazine section a couple of weeks ago and #5 in the whole freaking world was...Oakland, Ca. home of the OWS rabble.

    Our rights have been written down to remind the government that it is the job of the government to protect those rights.
