The previous thread had as it’s topic an academic exercise in debating whether or not the Constitution should undergo some updating. I say yes. In my opinion it’s a foregone conclusion. The evidence for being ameanable is glaring, most of us have eyes and any reasonable person; educated, elected or not should agree. Except southerners. Ghosts of the Civil War. Calling Ken Burns.
The history of behavior, intention and outcome should be a sign post of warning. Death (figuratively or not) comes suddenly and it’s the easily beguiled who don’t pay attention. And thus their time is cut short. There has never been a human construct; in any sense of the word that has remained impervious, static or otherwise fantastically impenetrable to the unknowable and unfathomable forces in the universe. In that sense, we are alone. With each other. Big boats. So make room for the stink and the sweat.
The filibuster came about because of the death of Alexander Hamilton. No mention of it in the sacred paper.
So what do you all think? I think “we” are the foregone conclusion and thus are looking back on the past and are so beyond it.
So with that I say the word god, bible and filibuster are absent in the constitution.
