Right, so Congress already stated you have no rights, can be detained indefinitely.

Now they want to make it illegal to have body armor.

So we have no rights, the cops have become militarized and are beating the shit out of people and straight up murdering them all over, but yes, lets make body armor illegal.

A nation at perpetual war abroad, funded solely by the ability to force other countries to trade in their currency, on the brink of collapse.

Good luck folks.

An army consisting of one million children and teenagers armed only rocks.M80's and the world's most dynamic and comprehensive foul language just defeated the IDF,a fully modern military force with unlimited means,along with the full backing and support of the Israeli People.I am pretty sure the Palestinians didn't have body armor.I noticed a post on the internets a couple of days ago about famous quotes of George Orwell.He is supposed to have said:"The Hammer breaks before the Anvil." The Congress is for sure working on making everything that can be thought of illegal.A Waste Of Money,Brains And Time.

Yes-now that is a group of people who has really got guts.The State of Israel goes after Israeli Peaceniks fiercely and kills them occasionally.They deserve great respect.

Do Congressmen bother to check their ideas against the Constitution and Bill of Rights anymore, or do they just write laws and see if they will get enough votes to pass?

The Congressman may not be as wise as he looks. The gap between enforcement and legislation is enormous as evidenced by the war on drugs, illegal aliens living in the United States, littering, and crimes by Wall St.

This issue involves the Fourth, Tenth, and Fourteenth Amendments.

Americans hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--

The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.(10th)

No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.(14th)

It is less an issue of an arms race between the State and the individual than the State deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed and the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.(4th)

Can illegal aliens recycle litter legally?

Who enters a country illegally to begin a career in professional dumpster diving? They couldn't find a better job back home?
