First Amendment - Few Know Or Care About Outdated, Obsolete Document

A recent study, reported on by the AP, found that Americans know little about the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The First Amendment, of course, was written in 1789 and remained in effect until November 2001 when President Bush, under the authority granted to him by himself, cancelled its provisions.

Of the 1,000 people surveyed only one could name the five freedoms protected by the amendment. 20% of those surveyed thought that the right to own a pet was included.

I would go on about this, but then again, who really gives a shit about the Bill Of Rights anyway?
