So the Constitution is somehow "provisional" meaning that it isn't Universal and does not apply to any person, or any time, or any place?
The Law is meant for ALL. For laws to be effectual they are meant to be all-inclusive, not something that is just a convenience when it works in your
favor and irrelevant when they don't.
When you start saying that Constitutional Rights apply only some of the time, only in certain conditions, you aren't just treading upon a slippery
slope, you are already at the bottom!
So, what's next? First Amendment no longer applies to Public Protest? First Amendment no longer applies to the Media? First Amendment no longer
applies to Women or African-Americans? First Amendment no longer applies when Mercury is in retrograde?
Ahem! Mr. Eric H. Holder Jr., the distinguished gentleman from the district of New York, I don't know what kind of law they were teaching at Columbia
when you attended, but Constitutional Law has been the same for a couple centuries now. Maybe it's long overdue that you spend some time taking a few
refresher courses. (And I hear that Columbia Law School provides courses online so you can study in your spare time from home while continuing to work
as Attorney General of the United States!)
