The Constitution no longer exists? What? Shut your talky-talky hole, you freak.

Two things:

First, this post is amazing. “Hello Hypocrites. What say ye now?” Sent from a friend and fellow geek at at work. Well done.

Second, is the fucking freakazoids that claim that with the passage of health care reform that the constitution has been “dissolved.”
From the comment section of the above post, comes this buried gem that directly addresses that topic.

Let’s take a look and, just for grins, start from the bottom up.

Nope. There all still there.

Yes. Indeed. For as much as I really, really dislike stupidity, I really hate the tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorists even more.
I’m sorry that some of us have to pay 3.8% to fund health care for everybody in the country.
Oh.
No.
Wait, NO I’M NOT SORRY AT ALL.
