A Little Constitution is a Dangerous Thing

In an incredible story out of East Texas, a bible college student was accused of committing an act of terrorism and espionage after he gave a talk to a group of boy scouts about ... The United States Constitution!!!

It's both Orwellian and Kafkaesque what happened to "Jeff" (who for his own protection wishes to remain anonymous) after he spoke about patriotism and liberty to a visiting troop of scouts "It's going to be you who is going to take this country and either make or break it - you need to get back to your constitution, you need to get to know your bill of rights and you need to stand up for them."

And that apparently was enough to bring Homeland Security down on his neck like a pride of shrieking banshees.

Read the whole story. It's shocking and appalling what is being done to us in the name of "freedom".

So I guess Jeff will now have his potential future job opportunities pretty limited. Of course he can always fall back on the one phrase that us Liberal Arts graduates have always needed when it comes to making it in the workforce: "You want freedom fries with that?"
