  1. I wonder if it is time for a Constitutional Convention, as some have been arguing, in order to craft an even more perfect union. And I wonder what the drafters of the Constitution would think of some of the amendments, some of the USSC's rulings about Constitutional issues, some of the fundamental problems in the three branches of government, and the epidemic of extra-Constitutional regulatory abridgments of Constitutional rights. Sometimes the here and now of American government gives me a very big headache, and I think the founding fathers would be aghast at the U.S. in 2017.
