As a California state employee, at the age of thirteen I signed an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

I remember it vividly: I took it seriously then, and a I still do.

All enemies, foreign and domestic. I hope that I will never have to do anything drastic to fulfill that oath, though for the last few years I have not been so sanguine about that.

I have to admit, though, that there's a part of me that has always kind of hoped that I would someday have get to angrily refer to it, something like the mighty Senator Leahy did the other day.
