Re: Leveling Nuts >> Waterstops

Actually, the Equal Protection Clause is not in the Constituion itself, it is in the 14th amendment. 
 
And I'm not sure it extends to leveling nuts.
 
It prohibits states from denying any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.  In other words, the laws of a state must treat an individual in the same manner as others in similar conditions and circumstances. A violation would occur, for example, if a state prohibited an individual from entering into an employment contract because he or she was a member of a particular race. The equal protection clause is not intended to provide "equality" among individuals or classes but only "equal application" of the laws. The result  of a law is not relevant so long as there is no discrimination in its application.
