“ALL ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION”
by OPOVV, ©2016
(Sep. 9, 2016) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘Pulse of the Nation.’ I’m Chief New Leaf, and I will be your host for this evening’s program. What we do is stop people while walking past us on this sidewalk under the awning across from the railroad station and ask them what’s on their minds.
“Hello, Miss, mind if we ask you a question?”
“Who’s the ‘we’? Are you including your cameraman and the sound-boom girl? Or maybe your audience that’s sitting at home and can’t get in touch with you even if they wanted to? Maybe the ‘we’ is your producer who likes your buckskins and rifle.”
“Figure of speech, that’s all. Like asking, ‘How you doing?’ doesn’t mean I want to hear your medical history.”
“I’m in a hurry, so ask your question. I watch your show so I know the format. I’m waiting.”
“Sorry, Lady, but we’ll have to pass on you. Run along, now. Interviewing you would be a waste of time. ‘Oh, first woman president’ and ‘Hillary’s E-mails are a Right-Wing Conspiracy’ that we don’t want to hear. We don’t want it, don’t need it, and sure as heck can do without it, so run along now and please don’t make a scene. If you can’t deal with the facts, you got a lot more going against you than your inability to accept the truth. You have a mental condition that our Professor Zorkophsky would label as ‘Denial Syndrome Run Amok.’”
“Why, you’re as rude as that Mr. Roving Reporter. By the way, where is he? Is that gun loaded? You’re a racist, is what you are.”
“Geez, Lady. Of course it’s loaded.. Roving is in Nevada, last I heard. Or in the San Diego area: same difference. Now, this election is about the Constitution, understand?”
“Hillary will make a fine president; she has experience; her finger isn’t on the trigger.”
“Why? Because she’s afraid of blowing up Mecca and sending Muslims to Paradise? No, no. Look, let’s change the subject from a hypothetical to a set-in-concrete fact: future Supreme Court vacancies. You see, with Hillary you can kiss the Constitution goodbye because we have a completely worthless Congress which couldn’t override a veto if their lives depended on it; and it does and they won’t, so there. Which is why it’s also important to stack the Congress with Republicans, I hope, not that it’ll make any difference but it just might.”
“Hillary has experience.”
“In not protecting her employees. Ambassador Stevens had an exit strategy – ALL our embassy personnel have an exit strategy – which she deliberately and consciously ignored and refused to implement, perhaps by orders from Valerie Jarrett.
“If Hillary is ‘elected,’ say goodbye to the Second Amendment and any future truths about the atrocities that the followers of Islam have perpetrated and will continue to do in the future, the future being in the next second somewhere around the world; maybe another 9-11 or San Bernardino right smack here in our country. Maybe a so-called ‘honor killing’ will take place behind closed doors and the body buried in one of the 22+ killing fields that they call Islamovilles – or some such nonsense – that are scattered strategically around our country. Maybe someday General Jack Keane will stroll on by and we can ask him about it.
“In other words, our First Amendment will be curtailed; the old ‘Camel’s nose is in the tent’ argument and then what? Abolish constructive criticism of Islam, Obama, Hillary; United Nations?
“Are you at least smart enough to understand that once you go down the road of snipping away at the Constitution it’s the beginning of the end? Are you at least smart enough to put those two 2’s – the First and Second Amendment — together and come up with a truthful 4?”
“This Supreme Court subject is just too complicated for me to understand because it’s so far away; I mean, maybe those old people will keep on living, which would make your whole argument kaput; worthless; meaningless; so there.”
“Lady, your thought process is a work of art, it truly is. Look, it’s not your fault that you don’t get it, that you fail to understand the facts. Blame it on your public school education or lack of brain cells, but, whatever the case, here, take one of Professor Zorkophsky’s cards that I hand out to those in need and make an appointment ASAP: before the election, for sure.
“Darn it; our time is up. I want to apologize to you people who waited around to be interviewed; maybe you’ll get your chance next time. Tell you what, give your name to the cameraman after the show, and if you want to get on tomorrow he’ll put you in front of the line. That is, of course, if there is one; a line, I mean, not the show. Anyway, our time is up, as I already said, and so, on behalf of the crew, I’ll be wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.
“Turned out to be a pretty good show after all. This election is all about the Constitution and nothing else matters, so it ought to be cut-and-dried. Hey, Lady! I’ll call the Professor for you if you join us for a burger: my treat.”
