Let's Just Ignore the 14th Amendment

Defending America Against the 14th Amendment

Amendment XIV

Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
--United States Constitution, 14th Amendment

"The question of whether our forefathers meant for birthright citizenship in all circumstances to be the law of the land is far from settled," Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) said at the hearing. "In any event, we must still determine if it is the right policy for America today."
Steve King (R-Iowa) was the most adamant that it was not the right policy. He questioned what would happen "to the demographics of America if this policy is not reversed," and implied that Democrats may support birthright citizenship because they want to win elections.
--Huffington Post

One thing about the 14th Amendment, among all the amendments, it has a ringing clarity. You're born in in the United States, even if you were just passing through on a horse from Mexico on your way to Canada, you are a natural born citizen of the USA.

Republicans, every last one of them, take their responsibility to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States very seriously. They begin almost every discussion with an affirmation that whatever they are about to say, it's all part of their ardent desire to defend the Constitution against  frontal attacks or  back stabbing assaults launched by Democrats, or, as they say, "That DemocRAT" party.

But for some Republicans, it's a case of we are for the Constitution, except when we are not,  which is when that Constitution would drive this country in the direction of the wrong "demographics" which is to say, not white, not Christian, and you know what we are talking about--all those Hispanic Muslims massing on our Southern border trying to swim the Rio Grande and rape our white, Christian women. 

I've just got to get Texas Senator Louie Gohmert on the phone and hear what he thinks about this.  You remember Louie. When those kids were flooding across the border it was he who stood up for American womanhood.

“And they’ve committed at least 7,695 sexual assaults,” Gohmert insisted. “You want to talk about a war on women? This administration will not defend the women of America from criminal aliens! By the thousands, and hundreds of thousands!”

Actually, it may be a good idea for American women to practice an escape route North. The Canadians are not rapists, ordinarily. And, in any case, they tend to be, well: White.  I think we ought to practice evacuation from Hampton, say along Route 89 to that lake and north from there. 

Be prepared, that's my motto.


  1. That's a very wise motto Mad Dog... if Rep. Gohmert is correct and THEY are coming for all us women folk, then a practice escape is in order..some of us may now be more familiar with Rte 89 than others and could lead a caravan of female laden buses through the Green Mountains a female Moses leading her fellow sisters to the Promised Land, or in this case- Canada...your idea is starting to grow on me...

  2. Ms. Maud,

    "Moses of the Green Mountains." Yes, I like it.
    Of course, you'll have to fill out an application, but considering your experience and record of right thinking, I'd say you would make a strong candidate.
    There is a lake, Champlain I think, something French, at the other end. Would clearly be more of a challenge to the marauding teen aged Hispanic Muslim wetback rapists than the Rio Grande, which you can wade across certain times of the year.
    How are your parting-the-waters skills?
    Any French? French might help, although I would not think pigin or Cajun French would be disqualifying.
    Buses are a good idea. Sign of good executive skills on your part.
    You do realize you now need a passport for Canada? Not that this would deter any of those 7,695 priapic boys in pursuit.

  3. Mad Dog,
    I've actually been parting waters for some time now-no problem there-it's my french skills up in French speaking Canada that is the worry...the only thing I've retained from studying French in school for several years is one line from a dialogue we had to memorize, which basically translates to: "Daddy can we eat at a restaurant tonight"...on second thought that may come in handy and take some of the pressure off of foraging for food in the Canadian wilderness..

  4. Ms. Maud,

    One thing I've learned about you is you always fasten on the most critical thing.
    Oh, how I hated memorizing French dialogues. I can ask where the library is, to this day.
    If I ever go back to Paris, I hope you'll join me. We can find the most important places between us.
    I had much to put behind me in Paris, but that woman who directed me back to my boat on the Seine erased decades of hostility toward the French. They are a lovely people and they make great bread and chocolate.
