The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword

Amendment 46 seeks to end Affirmative Action in Colorado.

Several well-meaning citizens signed a petition to put the amendment on this November's ballot after intrepid petitioners told them the amendment would "end discrimination." After finding out the amendment is actually designed to end Affirmative Action, the same citizens complained to the Secretary of State. They were told "too late, you should have read what you were signing."

To illustrate this tragic tale I offer a delightful little confection from YouTube: "End Women's Suffrage."

Moral of the story? Never sign anything you don't understand.

That's TERRIBLE! I can't believe they were at a COLLEGE and not a single girl knows what SUFFRAGE means? Ahhhh!
