No Constitutional Right to Own Cats

As if we needed any more proof that the Moron-American voting bloc is hopeless, a new survey finds that Americans are more likely to know the names of the five members of the television Simpson Family than they are the five rights enumerated in the First Amendment to the US Constitution.

Only 28% could name more than one freedom embodied in the First Amendment. Think about that, only 28%. Oddly enough, a full 20% said that the freedom to own pets was one of the five freedoms.

The BFEE must be working on the theory that if people don't know what they have, it'll be really easy to take it away from them. They won't even miss it. And they have been hard at work, chipping away at that problematical (for them) First Amendment. Watch for even more chips to go flying off in the next couple of years -- unless we stop them!

BTW, the five are as follows:

  • Freedom of speech
  • Freedom of religion
  • Freedom of the press
  • Freedom of assembly
  • Freedom to petition for redress of grievances

Oh yeah, the other five are:
  • Homer
  • Marge
  • Lisa
  • Bart
  • Maggie

Hey Farnsworth: I am writing again and sounding like a broken record but, it is true. I am grew up in New Orleans, La. and I have seen corruption all my life. The public school system down here is ranked either 50th or 49th since I was in school. I think these CROOKED, CRIMINALLY-CORRUPT REPUGNICANS saw what was happening in Louisiana and decided to go national with the same bad school system that is taught here in Louisiana. No child left behind for example. If you keep the populace ignorant you can get away with all the shit these CROOKED, CRIMINALLY-CORRUPT REPUGNICANS are getting away with now. Keep up the good fight. SEMPER FI!

No Child Left Behind is actually code for No School Left Standing. That's according to my cousin, the middle school principal.
When you erect a bunch of impossible to achieve "standards" and then punish the schools who don't achieve them, the only thing left is to siphon off the upper crust into private schools and turn out the rest into the streets to become stoop labor for the ruling oligarchy.
Thanks brother, and welcome home.
