  •  Besides, the whole constituion is so 19th century (11+ / 0-)

    You know, that whole constitution thing is so 19th century.

    Today, our rights are only gauranteed in so far as someone can profit from the exercise of those rights.

    Your right to be free of government search: limited.
    Your right to a trial by jury: limited.
    Your right to be free of phone tapping; limited.
    Your right to be represented by an attorney; limited.
    Your right to petition the government for a redress of grievences: limited.
    Your right to own and use a gun; expanded.

    This is the 21th century people.  And 9/11 changed everything, including our notions of morality, human decency and dignity, and civil rights.

    If your rights are not profitable to a large corporation, then those rights don't mean diddly-squat.
