"it has no binding power on anything"

Breathaking ignorance or totalitarian arrogance, take your pick.

If you listen to him, it's pretty clear (to me at least), that he is saying that the reading of the constitution is not binding on anything, which is correct. However, I do understand the allure of thinking the absolute worst of this douche.

Furthermore, this douche is also correct in saying that no one can understand the thing. The constitution that I read doesn't come close to authorizing the government that we currently have. It's over. There's no going back; it will only get worse. Incrementalism wins.

With intellectual pundits like Ezra on the "Bend Over" news channel, it will be no time before they offer these dudes a prime time political round table show.

You need the Benjamin Franklin spectacles, from National Treasure, to be able to read historic documents like the Constitution. There's too much secret writing for ordinary eyes. Apparently, copies of these spectacles are issued to all Supreme Court Justices -- so that they can read all the secret stuff, that ordinary folk can't see.

Occam’s Razor says the problem lies with you, Ezra. You’re just stupid.

The original Constitution (the bill of rights) and the first 10 amendments are only 2 folio pages -— the subsequent amendments add the additional pages.

But that's the problem... it is just not long enough. A proper Constitution we could all understand should be at least 2000 pages with plenty of “Whereas”es and “At the Secretary’s Discretion” clauses to fully clarify matters.

The recently passed Health Care Bill is a good example of the format a truly modern, understandable Constitution should take, dontcha think Mr. Klein?

I guess this thinking should apply to leases and contracts too.

What an idiot. But the problem here is that this kind of crap is actually being taught in schools and kids today will grow up believing it.

But we are expected to obey every obtuse, legalistic line in multi-thousand-page horrors like Obamacare, that our “leaders” never bothered to read before making law.

Ezra Klein is a domestic enemy of the Constitution. Who will keep their oath?

The Communist Manifesto was written over 100 years ago, too, but I bet he understands it.

1 in 5 high school grads can’t pass the IQ test to get in the armed forces so they become reporters or a congressman.
