Constitution Day


Tuesday passed by largely unnoticed as a day of historical significance. I suppose it’s a sign of the times that Constitution Day would slip by almost unmentioned and essentially uncelebrated. However, 226 years ago Tuesday, the Constitutional Convention held in Philadelphia (May 14-Sept. 17, 1787) was closed with the signing of the Constitution by a majority of the delegates. The Constitution would not be ratified for another 10 months.

President George W. Bush was reported to have once said, in so many words, the Constitution is just a piece of paper. That report has since been debunked by even the Bush-haters as coming from an unreliable source and not likely true. But it seems lately the psychopaths walking the halls of power in the Washington, D.C., cesspool mostly feel that way. Certainly they govern that way, as did Bush, Bill Clinton and others.

In 2004, Congress passed a law establishing a Federal observance of Constitution Day on Sept. 17, but it was not made a national holiday. Schools receiving Federal funding are required to provide educational programming on the Constitution as part of the observance.

Quiz your children or grandchildren about what they learned in their Constitution Day session. Then compare it with the Constitution and with history to see if they are being taught the truth or something else entirely.

    After hearing BHO talk his budget plans, I know for sure that he truly wants to destroy this Country.

      Today in the USA is one of the best times you will ever see in your life time. Sorry you don’t like blacks. Move!

        Not sure what you are talking about … If you are talking about our President.. he is not black he is mixed… you know half white half black… so if you are trying to say someone should move if someone doesn’t like blacks move… you know the same thing can be said to you… Today is not one of the best times I will see in my life time ….Just like Michelle said she is finally for the first time proud of America.. I am for embarrassed we have a president who will not honor our flag and is the first president I have seen try to make a bigger divide in this country than ever before..

          I agree with you Neda ! I have seen more Constitution tearing, more effort to make Americans dependent on government and more push for opening illegal immigration for the sake of votes to keeps Democrats in power…since I was old enough to vote back in 1988 ! I was excited to see diversity coming to the presidency and I don’t believe he inherited problems as the next president…he actually wanted it by running, campaigning and getting in the ring to begin with ! No mercy for someone who asks for problems and then gets it and makes it 10 x’s worse !

    I wondered why no one mentioned it. Not even our wimpy President mentioned it.
