The Constitution Will Not Be Televised

Lake County voters are hoppin' mad over everything and anything, not the least of which being their Constitutional Rights. These voters do not think it is Constitutional for their legislators to pass legislation, and as reported on this blog ...
Crazy Eighth
they have made their feelings known. It should go without saying that it is the Judicial -- not Legislative -- branch of government responsible for deciding the Constitutionality of a piece of legislation. All of which makes your LakeCountyEye wonder whether or not any of these fightin' mad angry voters have actually read the Constitution.

Charged with doing the dirty jobs so that you don't have to, your LakeCountyEye has read the US Constitution. Since the best safeguard against an uninformed electorate is a misinformed electorate, your LakeCountyEye has compiled ten little known provisions and amendments to the Constitution.

The 10 Least Known Articles, Clauses and Amendments
in the US Constitution

  1. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of red-light-cameras, or prohibiting the free blowing-off thereof.

  2. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed, until pried from their cold dead fingers.

  3. Congress shall be granted the power to vanquish Lord Voldemort.

  4. The right of citizens to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States on account of being a goldfish.

  5. I have not forgotten that $10 thou owest me, Mr Jefferson.

  6. No President shall exact retribution on an electorate who removed him from office after one term by nominating or supporting his son for the same office. Particularly if the idiot was christened by the same name.
    Editors Note: the so-called John Quincy Adams Amendment

  7. The US Treasury will buy your gold for cash -- act NOW!

  8. The phrase "All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights" does not appear in this Constitution. Look it up.

  9. In case of the removal of the President from office, the Vice President shall become President. The duties of the Vice President shall be assumed by the first runner-up Miss America.

  10. You gotta fight for your right to party.
