Jesse Jackson Jr says that we need to add to the constitution the right for every family to have a decent home, and free ipods and laptops.

Truly is he demented already? Nothing is free. Someone is going to pay for it. Again. The tax payers.

Basically, he was quoting Roosevelt. He did not say that Ghetto kids should have the constitutional right to ipods and laptops.

He did speculate on what would happen if:

People had the constitutional right to decent housing (more construction jobs)

People had the constitutional right to healthcare (more doctors)

It just shows what this man is made of. He is incapable of presenting a valid argument. One that is not a laughing stock. I mean this is truly comic material. He is clueless.

The funniest part is that he takes himself so seriously.
Shades of daddy.

No, he didn't say people had the constitutional right ti ipods and laptops.

And, no, I am not a Jesse Jackson or Junior fan. But I AM a fan of context.

No, it doesn't, but keeping his blathering in context is important.

Wow! From Roosevelt to Constitutional Rights to Housing/HealthCare to IPODS & LapTops & Ghetto Kids... Isn't there a Diagnosis for Tangential Thinking?
