2 Just blew off another libtard "friend" on FB who claimed Hillary is the greatest Sec Of State we've had in decades. She didn't like my response. I was called an asshole by one of HER friends and lectured on how smart Hillary is! Jesus H. Christ! These people are crazy. Absolutely batshit crazy! There are no words.

4 I'm pretty sure the "greatest Sec of State of all time" doesn't give a shit about this, either.

6 Heh heh. I'm loving this, from the comments on the NY gunz lawz article:

We Canadians messed with the registration scheme to no end, we registered fictitious items, including soldering irons, glue gun, water pistols, one enterprising fellow even registered his Jack Russell Terrier. Another thing we did, was bomb the system with hundreds of thousands phoning, e-mailing etc at the same time. The on-line system was hacked over 350 times with public access points of entry. In the end, less than 30% of the Canadian long guns ever made it into the database.. However the dog did..

7 Woof! Woof!

That's my other Canadian long-arm registration dog impersonation.

I don't think I'd want to register my attack kittehs...I already expect the DEA to shoot them when they break down my door to arrest me because I bought Sudafed.

Oh man, I hear ya. I have a prescription for the dreaded 'fed. Which doesn't stop the drug store from automatically treating me like a meth-head every time I fill my script.

I fully expect to see a lot more stories from the American media about how the Constitution is what is really holding back America these days.

First of all, the Constitution is standing in the way of Obama's 3rd (and successive) terms. A repeal of the 22nd Amendmenthas absolutely no chance of passing through both houses of Congress, and even if it somehow did it would never be passed by 2/3 of the state legislatures, a majority of which are controlled by Republicans.

IfJustices Scalia and/or Kennedy somehow are unable to see the end of this term, then Obama can get a 5th rubber stamp to go along with the other 4 liberal kangeroo's on the court. Since the prevailing legal theory seems to be that the Constitution means whatever 5 Justices of the Supreme Court say it means (as long as it is a left-friendly decision), then Obama can get his life tenure in the White House in that fashion.

Otherwise, the only way will be to gin up a demagogic, mass based "popular" movement to demand the suspension of the Constitution, or at least its very elastic implementation. Perhaps some sort of "Enabling Law" to allow Dear Leader to stay on until the country is back on the right track, etc.

I used to think that the media would demand that at least some sort of Chavez style "elections" would still be required to furnish a figleaf to conceal the naked power grab such a move would reveal. However, after listening and reading them for the past 4 years, I truly believe that many, if not most, would actually cheer on a pure dictatorship as something that must be done to prevent the Republicans from using arcane rulesput in place by a bunch of 18th century slaveholding, misogynistic, homophobic, dead white men to stand in the way of Progress.
Forward, Comrades!
