rnch saidthe U S Constitution doesn't mention the Air Force because airplaines weren't invented when the constution was written, you jack ass!
pls quote what section(s) uphold your moronic opinions.
The New York Times has a nicely reprinted version here
. I refer you to Section 8 that enumerates the proper powers of Congress. The USAF is emphatically not one of them.
As Christian mentioned, this was intended to be a parody of common but very stupid views we hear all too often. There's a serious point: there are a significant number of people who clamor for a literalist and narrow reading of the Constitution. They have honed their skills on similar readings of the Bible. There is no doubt in my mind that the American Constitution is intended to be a broad document that must be reinterpreted with the times; but these people disagree.
My point is to make it absolutely clear that narrow and literalist readings of the Constitution are risibly misconceived, ignoring as they do technological innovations such as powered flight. If one is to stick by such a narrow reading, one MUST get rid of the Air Force.
And if the Constitution did not anticipate innovations such as powered flight, or computers, or even electricity, what of social innovations such as Universal Health Care, or less agreeable ones such as Total War and Cybercrime?
For now, it is an amusing riposte to the Tea Party: "well, when are you getting rid of the USAF?" that reveals their moronic stupidity.
