Constitution Day / Constitution  Week
The Constitution. I’m sure you’ve heard of it. That piece of paper GWB, Darth Cheney and their minions have been trying to shred for years now. Oh yeah. That one.

Luckily there are still those of us who have faith (but slowly ebbing) that our country and constitution can survive.

So use this week to learn more about what geniuses our county’s founders were and how they perceived the future of our country. (I’m sure they’re spinning in their graves now!)

Observed annually by Presidential Proclamation (how ironic!)
