    The really old Constitution had a pretty good month

    And the Bill of Rights, too.

    Who can forget this snippet of wisdom from 2010?

    I’d say June 2014 was a pretty good month for that old document.

    Last week the Supremes shot down Obama’s “recess” appointments because under that old document, they were not really recess appointments.

    And also free speech buffer zones, because even people protesting to protect the unborn are entitled to speak their minds.

    And hey, government, leave our cellphones alone.

    Today, in Hobby Lobby, the principles of religious freedom in the First Amendment, as codified additionally in legislation, were upheld.

    And also today, the Supremes upheld freedom of speech principles in holding that home care workers could not be forced to subsidize public sector union political activities.

    For an old lady, the Constitution is holding up just fine.

    Will the buffer zone around the supreme court be relaxed due to this ruling?

    Ezra must be doing fantastic now that he’s the VOX of the administration. /sarc

    The only thing confusing about the Constitution to guys like Ezra, are the fact that the words are SET IN STONE. They don’t evolve with the times, much to the dismay of the cheerleaders of the left and other regressive types.

    Ezra Klein said it was a “gimmick” and then basically said people don’t know what is in it. That sounds like a good reason for reading it aloud, to me.

    Breitbart had a great point. The mandate was a broad decisive constitution loss. The religious aspect was a narrow bit of Liberty protected. But we can pretend to feel good.
