RTFC

Finally, an intelligent blog from Dagio, rather than a pointless "Retard Test" that I know everybody will fail. But don't get your hopes up, though. It's still about me and why I hate stupid people. Don't be surprised if this is how all of my articles sound.

Anybody who has worked with computers will know what RTFM means. In this article, I will explain what the term RTFC means and why it is important to follow. For starters, the R stands for "read", the T stands for "the", the F stands for "f*cking", and the C stands for "Constitution". In other words;

READ THE F*CKING CONSTITUTION

Oh, the Constitution? Yeah, it's a pretty cool document. Has lots of neat amendments and rights and stuff.

But how many people have actually read it? Well, I took a poll and here are the results. It excludes Dendude and I, and I have color-coded it for your convenience.

SURVEY SAYS:



As you can see, the bar on the left, colored in blue, is the percentage of people who haven't read it, and the bar on the right, colored in red, is the percentage of people who have read it. As you can also see, these are not really the results. I didn't even take a poll. This is just what I have inferred over the years, seeing as how people want to outlaw gays getting married, remove the Ten Commandments (and every other religious display (as long as it's Christian)) in public places, revoke the right to own a gun, or prevent cuss words or nudity from being seen or heard on television.

Let me disect each and every one of these. Don't worry, it won't take long. The first one has already been done for me. Just refer back to Dendude's gay marriage article.

Separation of church and state myth:

The whole separation of church and state is bull crap. I mean come on, how could people be so stupid on this one? It's the first amendment for God's sake! Here's proof:

Source: United States Constitution

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Let me see... let me see... yep, right as usual. But granted, it's an easy mistake. I just think that people forget the part where it says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.".

See the part where it says "or prohibiting the free exercise therof;"? By removing the Ten Commandments because of this separation of church and state myth, you are directly violating the first amendment. Yes, YOU. It's your fault.

Allowing religious displays in a public place is not an endorsement of any specific religion, and anyone who construes it as such has either a: too much time on their hands, or 2: needs to loosen their girdle and breathe a little.

Right to own a gun:

Holy shit! This one's right below the first amendment!

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

The part where it says "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed", basically means that the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

FCC censoring television:

Haven't I already been on this amendment before? Well, here we go again:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Here, let me outline it for you:

  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"
  • "or abridging the freedom of speech"

    Stay tuned for DenDude's upcoming article The Constitution for Illiterates.

    Did I mention that I hate stupid people?

    • i worked at a help desk for a long timea and i know what you mean abnout rtfm. people only want to hear what they want to hear and read what they want to read. the constitution should be called the manual for americans and if you can't or won't read it you should have your first amendment right to criticize taken away. good article.
