Constitution Pt. 36

AMENDMENT XIII

Passed by Congress January 31, 1865. Ratified December 6, 1865.

Note: A portion of Article IV, section 2, of the Constitution was superseded by the 13th amendment.

Section 1.
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2.
Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

OK. There it is. The Thirteenth Amendment. What we have here is the abolishment of slavery. So, why did it take another hundred years to make it so? Well, let’s see. The grand exalted cyclops in the house for one. And it goes right down the list with George Wallace and a cast of hundreds. The funny part is that “the party of the people”, that’s right the Democrat party is the one that worked so hard to stop this from working out. Let’s keep that in mind come November.

You know, something kind of funny occurred to me. That part about except as a punishment for a crime, how did that get twisted to mean that you should get cable TV? Until next time, screw environmentalists.
