On Sunday, Egypt presented the draft for its constitution under a huge banner showing five people. The people were not real. Three were Westerners found on the Internet. In addition, they misspelled "Egyptians." That does not bode well for the wording in the new constitution. The Egyptian authorities have apologized.
I read an interesting article by Dean Obeidallah, a political comedian whose articles sometime appear on CNN. He was blasting Bob Beckel of Fox News about a comment he made. Beckel said that Muslims should not be allowed to build any more mosques in American until they denounce terrorism. Of course, as Dean pointed out, that would be a violation of the constitution. This assumes also that Muslims are guilty until proven otherwise. However, Beckel may be on the right track. Here are my suggestions on the same thread:
1. People must prove they do not hear voices in their head, are not mentally ill, are not wanted for murder, are still taking their meds, and have a legitimate reason to buy a fully automatic rifle and hundreds of rounds of ammo before purchasing guns.
2. Aryan Nation members should not be allowed to build another camp until they renounce racism, can prove they do not hear voices in their head, and can prove that they are not married to a sibling.
3. Republicans should not be allowed to run for congress until they can prove they will actually work.
4. Democrats should not be allowed to run for office until they can prove that they are not having an affair, using hookers, sexting, or sexually harassing others.
5. Commentators should not be allowed on TV until they can prove they will not say stupid things. Good luck with this last one.
