I was just reading an article about how a Muslim girl is suing Abercrombie and Fitch because they discriminated against her for wearing a headscarf. In the comments section, a different Muslim girl is arguing that everyone has the Constitutional right to work wherever they want. She said a size 20 woman has the right to be a runway model. Quote: "That's the right of an American citizen per our grand Constitution."
Does anyone even read the Constitution anymore? Apparently everyone's high school government class was as bad as mine.

My Civics class was taught by a Mr McKinney. Who was the varsity boys basketball coach. In Indiana,it is a big deal.
Mr McKinney would give us a worksheet on Monday and that same worksheet was the test on Friday. We had the class time to find the information to answer the quiz cum test questions.
It was a joke. I was angry that McKinney spent the whole time diagramming plays on the blackboard.
Some of us did our own version of the class in the back of the room because (IMAGINE!) we were interested.
We formed our own kitchen cabinet and studied the depts in it. Got into some interesting debates as well.
We were told to pipe down. Ruining his concentration,don't you know.
McKinney did go on to another school after aa few years and won the state championship. So glad that he reached his goals in life. Snort.
