Khan you explain the 22nd Amendment?

Scanning my FB feed this morning I scrolled across this beauty to start my day. The realization that the US Constitution created an electoral college to act as democratic electors of the national leaders has, in the mind of Trustafarian Americanus, invalidated the notion that the United States of America is a democracy at all. Even though this fellow has a wonderful, (very) well educated family and has attended fine educational institutions himself the electoral college proves that he's been "lied to" all his life. In a sense, he's right - it's easy to go through life in America and not learn a damn thing about the US Constitution and it's republican form of government. For instance, this same disillusioned youth took to the streets (Interstate Highway System, actually) a few weeks ago and joined a BLM mob who shut down the 405 in Los Angeles. SHUT IT DOWN! Have you ever driven on the 405? There are few stretches of highway in America more strife ridden than an evening commute on the 405 and were I driving on the highway and found myself engulfed and halted by a few hundred protesters I'd be sorely tempted to run them over regardless of what the constitution says - And according to them the constitutions affords them the "right" to shut down 8 lanes of super-highway traffic.

Which brings to mind Khizr Khan waving his pocket copy of the US Constitution at the DNC and offering to lend it to Donald Trump so that the GOP candidate might read it. It's a great idea and while he's at it Mr. Khan might xerox a copy and send it to HRC for her to read - I wonder what she'd make of the Twenty-second Amendment:
Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. 
Does it occur to anyone, educated or not, that electing the wife of a former president who had completed his two terms in office is a direct violation of the spirit of this amendment. When they wrote it up do you think anyone thought a political party would be so base as to nominate the wife of a former president so that he might wiggle his way back into the White House? I think it never crossed their mind, but at this point those legislators who toiled to create this check on executive power must feel like they were "lied to" by someone and spinning in their grave.

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
