1. Yeah, like:

And Jesus said unto them, "Ignore the sick, they are just a pain and will weigh you down on your way to great power riches! Hey, they're going to dyeth anyway, so why bother? More for you! Those old people are just disgusting drains on thy systems."

And they were sore amazed.

2. So by that logic, no military either?

"The Congress shall have Power to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States."

So we just throw that part of the Constitution out?

3. It's right in the goddamned first sentence.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to ... promote the general Welfare...do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

These clowns pretending to know the first thing about "da Constitushun" need to start getting called out on their ignorance. We're talking about people who barely graduated high school pretending to be legal scholars. All they "know" is the 2nd Amendment, and they don't even truly understand that. STFU!!

4. Everyone is a constitutional scholar these days

It is much like the Constitution thumping gun nuts who totally ignore the fist part of the 2nd amendment.
