In another blog, by the estimable Citizen Tom, I engaged a pretend conservative who regularly haunts that site. The discussion post, entitled What Do We Need to Do?, raised the issue I wrote about yesterday: How do we fix the current political problems that arise from erosion of the Constitution? Citizen Tom later promoted this comment to its own blog post.Before we get into my reply to faux conservative “scout,” let’s talk about other alternatives:( Read more...Collapse )
The US Constitution does not need to be replaced or scrapped, as a number of folks on the left have suggested going back to President Woodrow Wilson. It does not need to be cured of its fatal flaws, so that Obama can implement redistribution of wealth and “break free” from the negative liberties placed by the founding fathers to prevent this, as Obama said in 2001.Nevertheless, there are major problems with our current government.

Maybe it’s the weather or the howling wind. Perhaps galactic forces are at fault or maybe my astrological stars are simply not aligning. Whatever the cause I have been generally overwhelmed and extraordinarily emotional for the last week… no, really it’s been more like two. I haven’t been getting enough sleep either – that never helps. It could just be a bout of hypersensitivity, I suppose. It feels like my skin is very thin right now and little things hurt. And so, for the past week.. no, maybe two.. I’ve reduced my life to the basics. Get up. Shower. Dry. Eat my cereal. Feed Crazy Agnes. Go to work. Get through the day. Go home. Medicate with chocolate. Read. Go to bed. Try to sleep. Fail. Try again. Read some more. Get a few hours sleep. Rinse, repeat.
That’s not to say I haven’t done some other things – I bought my mum a car. I got pooped on by a FLOCK of birds in a mass pooping attack outside a shopping centre. I went on a two day school camp at the last minute because one of the other teachers got sick. My internet wifi died and I didn’t realize for a week, then it took two and a half hours talking to people called Candy and Cherry in India before they were ready to acknowledge that it had indeed died and I needed a new one. Undoubtedly there were other things too, but I can’t remember what they were now and really nothing could surpass the horror of a mass bird pooping attack anyway.
