The jokes on you...if you believe the US Constitution guarantees ANYTHING!

The farce documented in the link in the posting title above should silence some of the crowd who want to crow about their imagined "rights" under the US constitution.

All this poor guy is guilty of is being an idiot. I'll bet that back in the government junior high school that he went to, some government paid teacher told him to take pride in the "rights" he had. The same "teacher" probably told him that his rights were guaranteed and protected by the government's constitution.

The fact that he's now going to be involuntarily "detained" and have two years of his life stolen from him by the institution that markets itself by claiming that it guarantees and protects his "rights" demonstrates the absurdity of even the smallest amount of faith, hope or trust in human governmental schemes.

For some reason, this has raised my Militantly Pacifistic blood pressure - and I'm not even a NY Giants fan.

An H.L. Menken quote is rolling around in my head...

"Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats."
