Ya Can't Fix Stupid*

Well this will be fun. I believe I will try to post any stupid I hear in the news, and if I have time, recall and research some some from the past and list them here.

Where to start.... How about here.

Today I learned that "PETA Sues SeaWorld for Violating Orcas' Constitutional Rights".

This one is stupid on many levels, but the most obvious comes from the US Constitution's first ten amendments, where it never once mentions any animals, finned or otherwise. PETA decision makers don't seem to understand the meaning of the term "constitutionally protected" and "inalienable rights". As I often tell people who invent some newly imagined protected right, they should put the idea out there, get support for it, and then get the US Congress to adopt a constitutional amendment to include their preference, and then put it to the state legislatures. If it passes then Hurray for you. We know it can be done as pigs have constitutionally protected rights in Florida.
