A "Living Document" ?

This is the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution, the way it was penned by the Founding Fathers. I take it to mean exactly what it says:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
It seems there are a lot of people; government officials, judges, or just plain a’holes whom think this is a “living document”. That the Constitution should be upgraded and interpreted in different ways as times change. After all, they are fine upstanding public servants that want nothing but the best for our country. None of them would ever have any self-serving interest at heart. Would they? The Founding Fathers must be wrong. How could they know what a Socialist government full of tyrants, kings, an elite ruling class, taxes out the wazoo, with everyone breaking their back just to keep the ”King” happy would be like? A copy of “Country Building For Dummies” would come in handy.

I decided to give the “King” a head start and redo the Preamble for him. Up-dated and up-graded to reflect today’s society. If they want to rewrite the entire Constitution, they’ll have to do it without me. I just hope I’m not around when these a’holes do this for real.

“We the Illegal and Elite People in the United Socialist States, in Order to form a more perfect Union for ourselves, establish Justice for the Elite, ensure domestic Tranquility as long as you agree with us, provide for the common defence for all Countries except this one, promote the general Welfare services we are entitled to, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity not yours, do ordain and amend this Constitution for Our United Socialist States of America.”

PS – I know this is primarily a motorcycle blog, and there has been a lot of political post as of late. But I’m thoroughly disgusted with the way “all” politicians have acted the last few years. Besides, I don’t know how much longer we’ll have them, so I’ll exercise my First Amendment rights while I can. And my Second Amendment rights if I have to.

Willy, brav-fucking-o!

Sometimes I can't help but use my motorcycle blog to vent about other stuff too, as you know. Lately, politics and social issues have been in the forefront of most of our thoughts. The bottom line is that this is yourgoddamned blog, and you can say what you like on it. In this case I happen to agree with you 100%, but even if I didn't, I'd still admire you for having the courage to speak out. History has shown that sometimes carrys a price, but I'm more than willing to pay it. I believe you are too.

As Ann's totally cool niece Jen said on my blog..."Your opinions promote debate and I think your regular commenters are all passionate about their point of view. That's anything but complacent. Yahoo for that."

Great re-write Willy D. I'm afraid one of those Jacklegs will notice this post (cause we all know they're watching you!) and invite you to come up for real and make it permanent!

"Come over to the dark side Dr."

AMEN Brother!

Ann said...

Willy, you are SO on a friggin watch list, now, if you weren't before! I couldn't agree with you more. The government jackholes (ALL of them) are screwing us over little by little. It won't be long before they stop taking baby steps and just start stomping on us.

Joker: Thank you...my niece is totally cool! :)

Just think he just got Wagner fired and wants to tell GM how to run the auto industry. Free interprise good by. Sad it is.

FLHX_Dave said...

LOL! Perfect, a masterpiece of satire and annoyingly true.

A "Living document"...err...I thought it was a dead document by the way it is treated...dirty necrophiliacs.

Dean "D-Day" said...


And Dave - Love the "dead document" comment.

Formidable...what you say is so true ... we will be eeing more and more political involvement before long...People will take over in their respective countries...too many A..holes running governments and you know what happens when people are finally fed up of it all.
The government running GM...heck they couldn't run a whorehouse in Reno Nevada not so long ago...I mean how difficult could that have been?...
Bravo...my friend...well said...now having said all that ...watch your back

“Joker”: I’m more than willing to pay the price, that’s not the problem. The problem is: What will be left to pay for? The damage being done now may take generations to repair. This assumes that the people wake up and smell the coffee, not turn into sheep and blindly do as instructed. Can you say “Nazi Germany”?

Lady R: That would be perfect. If I re-wrote the Constitution, we all know they would ratify it “without” reading it. Just think of the amendments I could sneak in to get their asses out of office.

Mr. M: “Amen” may be all that’s left to say before long. Unless we loose that Right also.

Ann: I keep seeing this little guy in a black suit and sunglasses following me. Who do you think he is?

Webster: I’ve read our Constitution many times. I just can’t find hiring and firing CEO’s listed as one of the powers granted to the President. As far as I’m concerned, He’s crossed the line.

Dave: The distance between satire and reality seems to be shrinking, fast. Let’s hope that the “dead document” wakes up before the coffin lid closes.

“D-Day”: “Amen” will make a good start. “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition” might be the finish.

Baron: We took a vote and it was unanimous. In Joker’s administration you’ll be appointed as “Whorehouse Czar”. Interested?
