It amazing how little I know about our government. Long story still too long: I'm helping out my brother-in-law and doing a Colonial reenactment thing and -- yes yes authentic clothing the whole 9 yards.... (yes, you'll see pictures Facebook friends ) ANYHOW -- I've been watching John Adams the mini series to ogle the clothing and I realize how very little I actually know about our founding fathers and this wonderful documentation they created. The mini-series stinks btw. I though Paul woudl be a good choice what with his parents - mostly his mom in this case actually -- but boy he is SOOOO irritating. and they messed with the time lines and facts of Adams family life... it's just annoying.
ANYHOW --- I think it woudl be neat if we had threads about the Bill of Rights and The Constitution rather than everyone talking out of there ass. At least get the facts of the document straight and THEN talk out of your ass in the interpretation.
Would that be cool? I think it's relevant. I think it's especially relevant. We've forgotten too much of what this country was founded on and have allowed opportunists to do our interpreting for us.
