I must have attended a different civics class when I was in school. I was
tought this strange and very radical idea that laws had to be defined by
the consititution rather than by corporations. I am sure when they open
the corporate re-education camps those of us that had this peculiar notion
will be made to understand that history was in error.
Tell me, good citizen, are we still at war with oceana?
