New Congress Is Read Constitution...Flees In Horror!

Well, they didn't run for the hills, but it must have been very uncomfortable for so many of our Congress-people to hear of this unusual sounding document that actually puts a little crimp in their massive monopolistic powers (remember that government is the only institution in the world with a legal monopoly on the initiation of the use of force).

But they sat still and listened to the strange man up front reading them instructions on how to behave. Some Goddamn nerve, huh? The liberals were thinking "whatta we do now" now that they were "reminded" (learned for the first better) that they had just taken an oath of office that enumerated their powers. What the F...! (Family blog...sorry you freaks who like it when I use the F word, but I'm gonna spread my liberty seed far and wide and broadcast it to the world of the little children awaiting the wondrous words of liberty). If I have time, that is. I just didn't feel like using F right now, ok?

Now, what is this mysterious oath that Congress takes before they are awarded the keys to the treasury by Bob Barker? Before they can "ask" the Federal Reserve to buy some more paper from China, print up some T Bills, and sell the same pieces of paper back to the Chinese? Pretty good con, yeah? Just ink up that paper with lots of zeros and the foreigners come a runnin'. We're the Fuckin' United States Of America, and our bonds, notes and bills are backed by the full faith and credit of the same said Fuckin' United States Of America. Sorry about the fuckin', kids, but Daddy felt it was too important and wanted to make his point clear.

The oath: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

The originally oath taken by the first Congress was " I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States". No promise to defend the government, or foment war and revolution ALL over the world. Nothing in there about anything, except defending a piece of paper that once was so clear in its intent to guarantee the rights of man that are awarded by God.

They were so confident back then that the men entering the first Congress understood the Constitution, that they didn't even feel the need of God to back them up on this one. He was in the wings in case Alexander Hamilton caused a fuss, but they went about their business in 1787 without the explicit word of God (Almighty). Could either one be more simple? I know that probably half the people we elect are as dimwitted as the people who elect them. But there are lots of us out here who do not consider the Constitution a Talmudic tractate, and is awfully clear in the enumerated powers of the government. Baby, you're on target here. It is THE GOVERNMENT that is restrained by the constitution. Not the people.

So...112th Congress, I salute you, pray that the Tea Party doesn't run out of old bags to keep the lid on the most explosive kettle of fish in the whole wide world; The United States Congress.

Now we must pray.
