Getting Catty About the Constitution

by Don Boudreaux on June 2, 2006

in Law

I realize that what I’m about to ask is the intellectual equivalent
of taking your date to a monster-truck rally, but where oh where in the
U.S. Constitution is the national government empowered to govern the
treatment of pets?

Yesterday’s New York Times has some details.

Do Senators Stevens and Lautenberg — who introduced the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act
into the U.S. Senate — and the 349 U.S. House members who’ve already
voted for this bill, understand what they did when they pledged to
uphold the Constitution? Did they read the document? Are they
illiterate? Dead-dog stupid? Or are they simply, well, politicians?

(Hat tip to pet-loving Karol.)
