The Ninth Amendment

The 9th Amendment to the US Constitution states, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” The people certainly have the right to the pursuit of happiness., which right includes such narrower rights as the right to buy automobiles with internal combustion engines and the gasoline and other petroleum products necessary to operate those automobiles. And similarly with all the various commonly used electrical appliances, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines, and so on. And yet today, these rights are being denied by public officials who, by their own admission, cannot tell a man from a woman nor, therefore, the sum of 1+1, nor, to put it in the vernacular, the difference between their ass and their elbow. These self-made morons, apparently led by a common criminal, if not a traitor in the pay of foreign governments, believe they are immune to the wrath of the people. Let us hope that they do not drive matters to the point of the people proving just how wrong they are.
