our rights are slowly being eroded away. it kind of reminds of the frog getting boiled alive, because he never notices the temperature being gradually heated. Finally it boils, and it's too late.
For anyone taking a quick look at this thread without checking the link, coastal borders are included... 2/3 of the American population lives within 100 miles of the border.
That said, there are parts of the judge's ruling that at least sound reasonable. The problem is adjusting 21st century logic to rights written when the state of the art was a quill pen. I'm a simple man and admit I don't have any answers to the big questions.
I'll be checking back in to see what everyone else thinks.
Well nobody gives a crap anyway. Look at how we were treated during RNC in NYC in 04, then the DNC this year, then look at Katrina. So in other words that saying bush stated that the constitution was a piece of paper is basically right..
(in case you are wondering about about statement list of rights lost.
1st amendments speech, free assembly
and I do believe in RNC was 6th amendment
Katrina was 2nd amendment)
To bad most of those people dont have a clue to anything the constitution says so they are completely unharmed by it as long as they got American Idol, Football, and beer, all is good in the US of A.

Having a bad day? I share your sentiments I really do, it does get you fuming at first... How much you, as lone soldier can accomplish? Sure a lot if the right people were motivated, I would never count out the power of the people or a person.....
To get a better perspective on the world we live in, watch the movie Idiocracy and all will become more clear, sad and funny at the same time.... but CLEAR.edit on 01181717_17k14 by jheated5 because: (no reason given)edit on 01195555_55k14 by jheated5 because: (no reason given)
Finally your last inference makes me grateful to have grown the Twain-stache.."21st Century logic". It makes as good a sound as "congressional investigation" for a contradiction of terms. My degree of education and grateful lack of trigger time in DC can't wrap my marinated tripelike substance around either of them, and my thanks for your reinforcement.
