|A Dumbass & His Iceberg|
Aside from the people who make up this great country, I think that the Second Greatest Thing About America is the 1st Amendment to the Constitution – you know, the one about Free Speech and stuff.
The populace aside, The Greatest Thing About America, in my Considered Fearless Leader Opinion, is the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. This is the that grants U S citizens the right to keep and bear arms against Bad Guys and (potentially) an over reaching Federal Gubmint. The 2nd Amendment is also a dandy way to protect the freedoms given to us by the 1st Amendment, in this case, the right to peaceful assembly. You’ll see what I mean in a minute.
Some Americas take the “peaceful assembly” part of the 1st Amendment beyond its construed meaning and they do stoopid shit like, oh, I don’t know, riot! Over Facebook comments! I feel certain that the Founding Fathers would disagree with actions such as this.
There are other Americans who take the right to have a gun to extremes as well. When guys like Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson wrote the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, I believe that they did so for the reasons I stated above (self defense, etc). I fail to where being pissed off at a neighbor who farted in your general direction falls into the category of self defense, but the Dumbass in this story interpreted the ol’ 2A differently than I did. That’s why he is a now a felon.
Taking things a step further, the Constitution of the United States also gives you absolute, inalienable Right to Be Stoopid As Hell. By “stoopid as hell” I mean believe in the Big Steaming Pile Known as Climate Change.
