    •  Well, I must say (0+ / 0-)

      this is either a very clever reply (though not a particularly effective one),

      or it shows a stunning lack of insight.

      •  I agree (2+ / 0-)

        I read my history books. All those dead white guys were Great. They came up with a Great way of ruling the country. They were all wise.

        They wrote a document 200 years ago that would deal with international corporations. Gang violence in inter-city wastelands because of white flight to suburbs. Corporations massively influencing elections with the courts approval. A foreign policy based on who we can sell arms to.

        Who can't call back on Jefferson to know that selling F-16s to Egypt isn't the best thing or the workers of America.

        I'm sure Washington has insights on how best to use a drone strike.

          nobody said they were perfect on the merits of what they did.  But slamming them based on their race and religion (when the subject matter is guns) is kind of silly.  Argue if you will that they were mistaken in enacting the Second Amendment.  Tell me why.  I'm all ears.  Just don't go all ad hominem on them, if you know what that means -- it's a form of argument with bad reputation favored by weak minds.
