  •  The only amendment that matters in BOR is 2A (7+ / 0-)

    and it's a tortured reading of that amendment, too.  Forget about search and seizure and right to counsel and privilege against self-incrimination.  Hell, in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 Ari Fleischer wasn't sure about that "free speech" concept.

    As long as the right to bear muskets as militia members remains secure, it's all good.  Maybe not quartering troops is important, too.  Everything else is negotiable.

      The object is to take away and destroy. There is no return, no recycling, no revolution and no evolution. One suspects that the media mavens exist in a virtual world and the practitioners of the real thing are terribly frightening.

      •  Excellent list. (0+ / 0-)

        I would have included exploit. The concept word they avoid like a terrorist is backlash.

        And of all the stats and threats, the really big, important ones are still barely getting air and print time, let alone accurate.

        Yup, the real danger to America are the terrarists. Gregory just needs to learn how to spell and define it.
