Children, lets talk about the Constitution.

The Constitution is our founding Document. It is the document that says the Government is of, for and BY the people and the minute it ceases to be so, We the People can behead that government and start over again.  Here's the problem. Too many don't understand that.  Either through ignorance not of their own doing, which is failing to be an excuse anymore with the proliferation of information on the internet.  Or willful ignorance. 

Those who don't understand or are being told /taught that our "rights" and more specifically the Bill of Rights, the 1st 10 amendments that are enunciated in, enumerated in and PROTECTED BY the Constitution, aren't rights at all. They are being told and taught that our rights [that which is due anyone by just claim, legal guarantee or moral principle.]are government granted or allowed privileges.  

This is from a woman's sons 4th grade homework assignment

   The 5th amendment which states the following...

"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."

but for this discussion I'm focusing on the bit about being compelled to be a witness against oneself aka the right against self incrimination. was held to be a privilege in an opinion of the US Supreme  in a decision in JUNE stated that the 5th Amendment was a privilege not a right.

So the right against self incrimination is not a right at all but a privilege granted by the government to be taken away at the whim of that same government? I don't think so junior. 

If you think this is insane, just wait til you hear what Chuck Schumer has in mind. 

Peoples rights are just that RIGHTS.  They aren't privileges that can be taken away as a parent takes away a misbehaving child toy, and rights are far from being toys. They are the guiding light, the principles, the.....natural laws of humanity if you will...that allow us to be free, independent beings. Beholden to nothing and no one but ourselves if we so choose. No one can take them away; unless you allow them to.  So why pray tell are we letting a government that has become a dictatorial commisariat elite and activist judges who like certain politicians would rewrite our founding documents to say what they mean; do so?    They should be held to the same standards as the rest of us. We need to jack these wild feral dogs in our governments  up short, and train them to remember who their masters are.

Remember, TANSTAAFL and..............

I now return you to your regularly scheduled inanity and insanity.
