Which part(s) of the Constitution do you think should be changed? Not surprisingly, this is a very active thread.

redeye [initial post]
Those of you who partake in such discussions and know me a little will probably know my answer: all of it, while replacing it with a more modern Bill of Rights and a more democratic system of electing our representatives in Washington
This one gets a 10 on the yikes-meter:
Term limits for Presidents... that way Bill Clinton would still be in office.

Yes, the Democrats are truly the party opposed to sexism. Ann Coulter is Skin and Bones! I guess it's okay to make fun of her appearance because she's not a liberal.

No reply from the DU Despots about why "Henry Jones" got axed. Chickenshits won't even answer an email.

Henry Jones, rest in peace. My nom de internet has been "tombstoned" Funny, "Henry" never posted anything abusive, or obviously conservative. "He" did frequently tease the loonier fringe when they saw black helicopters. "His" biggest beef with the DU in general was during the 2002 election cycle when they proposed all sorts of trickery to get around Minnesota and New Jersey election laws, but that was always couched in the terms of taking the moral high ground. I can only assume that someone at the DU saw my 3/23 post on blogspot and put 2 and 2 together.

Some highlights from the late Henry:

Henry takes the DU to task for treating New Jersy like a Banana Republic
Henry mocks some DU'ers who could use heavy medication.
Henry schools a marxist on how a real economy works.

He was a good sockpuppet, a charming sockpuppet. He will be sorely missed (until I get a new account.)
