Happy Constitution Day! -- How should we celebrate?
The US Constitution was signed on this day in 1787 -- 222 years ago! :patriot:

Read all about it: www.constitutioncenter.org/ncc_progs_Constitution_Day.a...

I see the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia is getting ready to host an exhibition about the life of the ex-wife of the next King of England (and mother of the one after). Someone seems to be confused about the true meaning of the "US Constitution"!
www.constitutioncenter.org/ncc_exhbt_Landing.aspx

Can you think of a more appropriate way to celebrate the anniversary of this momentous day in history?

Your suggestions please ....

2. By running Bacus out of town on a rail?
By tarring and feathering the insurance companies and their lobbyists?

By showing the 50,000 teabaggers what a REAL march on Washington looks like?

4. Attend an art gallery that you know right-wingers hate
Either that, or spend some quality time with a rifle at the gun range.

10. Have the President get on the air and read it aloud
Far too many Americans don't seem to have a clue about what the Constitution says, except the parts about bearing arms and not incriminating themselves.

13. Nah, they wouldn't listen to him...
...he's black, and we know that they resent him because of his skin pigmentation alone.

Why not make a video of a potpourri of Right Wing Windbags recite it, and put it on the Fox Propaganda Channel?! They might even learn something!

15. Extending the PATRIOT Act, torturing a prisoner in Gitmo, and forcing citizens to buy insurance
from private insurance companies at gunpoint?

:sarcasm:
