Jeez, they never give up, do they?

I think they’re closest to termites, unseen many times but working away to destroy the foundation relentlessly.

I want them gone.

She will just "deem" it!

It's probably a ploy to paint the republicans as obstructionists. Something else to whip up the dummies.

A) Congress will NEVER get 2/3rds of BOTH houses to approve this. No freakin’ way, with this divided bunch. And ...

B) There is ZERO chance that 38 states (3/4ths) will vote to ratify ANY change to the Bill of Rights.

Now, if Congress proposed a Term Limit Amendment ... or repeal of the 16th and/or 17th ... or a clarification of the Commerce Clause ...

What??? Nan couldn’t get on the President’s list of protected people.
We have Public Law 112-98 (passed and signed March 8, 2012)that makes it a felony (up to 10 years imprisonment) to protest in the presence of any person protected by the Secret Service. That’s right, your congress without any public debate passed this little puppy suspending the First Amendment.
Google it and look at the definitions.

Anything UnAmerican or UnConstitutional is what nancy Pelosi and the Democrats back.

They are turning America into a third world country and going as hard as they can go to do so.

It sin’t only nancy. It’s Harry Reid, Obama, 00% 0f Democrat politicians and 50% of Republican politicians , and the Mass Media,that are destroying our country.

We MUST try to remove them at the ballot box and if that doesn’t work————————.

Our country and it’s Freedom and Liberty MUST be saved at all costs.

“I think they’re closest to termites, unseen many times but working away to destroy the foundation relentlessly.” -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EXCELLENT analogy! That is exactly what they are to the Constitution and the founding of this country.

This the age old strategy of the left. They know they would never be able to get a bill to do what they really want, which to eliminate free speech in all its forms. So they start small, get their foot in the door with the approval of a seemingly innocuous bill about a minor facet of the issue -- and then wait until everyone forgets (about 3 months in the U.S.) and then introduce the next step claiming there is precedent set by the first bill. Happens every time. That's why, for example, the tax on wages for Social Security is now at least 10 or 15 times higher than when it was first passed. Pelosi blew it by attempting to eliminate the right to a legitimate constituency i.e. corporations. What she should have done is slip a limitation on free speech for some obscure constituency like, say, alligators (lol) into the ObamaCare bill of 2,700 pages that no one could possibly read until it was passed (we've heard that before) and then build from there. Same old strategy poorly executed.

The unions will be different of course, they represent "the people".

On the other hand the NRA and GOA only represent big corporate interests.

Got to read between the lines, the nitty gritty is always there.

As they say - Even a Blind Pig will root up an acorn now and then.

The Bill Of Rights applies to actual people - or at least it did for over two hundred years.

I do not believe the Founders ever intended the Bill Of Rights to apply to entities like businesses, labor unions, organizations, foundations, collectives or corporations.

The individuals who comprise those entities do have constitutional rights and protections and can speak for themselves as individuals.

The rise of the collective in our culture goes hand in glove with the leftist movement toward fostering group identity as the primary allegiance of individuals, and discouraging primary allegiance as citizens, family members and as individuals responsible for our own actions.

Extending constitutional “rights” to groups and collectives is another step toward injecting the concepts of socialism and collectivism into our culture, replacing the family and the individual as the basic building blocks of society.

to ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow Congress to regulate political speech when it is engaged in by corporations as opposed to individuals."

First thing that comes to mind is The Heritage Foundation.

Governed by an independent Board of Trustees, The Heritage Foundation is an independent, tax-exempt institution. Heritage relies on the private financial support of the general public—individuals, foundations, and corporations—for its income, and accepts no government funds and performs no contract work. Heritage is one of the nation’s largest public policy research organizations. More than 710,000 individual members make it the most broadly supported think tank in America.

The Heritage Foundation is the nation’s most broadly supported public policy research institute, with nearly 700,000 individual, foundation and corporate donors. Heritage, founded in February 1973, has a staff of 255 and an annual expense budget of $75.3 million.

Our mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.

Then they will attack the churches.

How could any one be a democrat and vote for democrat Nancy Pelosi?

This is just 1 more example why democrats are statists/socialists. Why do democrats trust government to do everything and control everything even our speech?

The introduction of such notions to The People via the media is fundamental to attainment of the ultimate goal. While there is far, far too much money involved in politics (from all sources, but in many cases, largely unions, etc.), a revision to “improve” our Constitution's First (and possibly most vital) Amendment would in all probability serve only to make matters much worse. However, if a leader of our Congress suggests that such a dramatic solution should be considered a valid, reasonable response to a timeless problem, The People will be numbed, and finally, unresponsive, when the End Game begins. Ms. Pelosi’s spew is not hysterical or idiotic; it is cool and very purposeful.

I, obviously, have a major problem with the idea that the First Amendment should, let alone needs to, be amended in such away. And if it were to start moving I’d oppose it with all my heart.

HOWEVER, I really do have to give SanFranNan props here in that, in the twilight of her political career, she’s FINALLY woken up and realized that this sort of thing can ONLY be done through a Constitutional Amendment ... rather than Act of Congress, Presidential fiat/Executive Order and/or ruling by activist judges.

So I’m willing to give credit where credit is due. Too bad she and her fellow travellers didn’t reach this conclusion earlier. Like 40 years ago.

Madame you are an idiot and represent all Dummycrats. It is obvious that you have no understanding of America's history and the importance and meaning of the US Constitution. It IS obvious that you have a better understanding of the Communist Manifesto.

You, Madame should be tarred, feathered, hung and then quartered for TREASON (not upholding the US Constitution).

With all due respect, that is the stupidest argument I have heard in a while.

The GOV. does not choose who or what has rights! Rights are God Given, and one has the ability to pursue happiness. If that hapliness evolves into a Corporation thaen so be it.

The very word Corporation (corpus) means a “body of people”, therefore the “body of people” have the same damn rights whether it is indicidual or collective.
