    The 4th Amendment was Not lost, we gave it away out of sheer laziness and stupidity.

    So why does Wiley vote for the people who did it?

    There are two which work in conjunction with each other.

    4th Amendment

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    It gets its teeth from the 14th Amendment.

    14th Amendment

    Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. 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.

    Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

    Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

    Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

    Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

    They got the Fourth, and now they’re trying for the second.

    While not very applicable to the strip the 10th is pretty dead at this point thanks to our more than adequate federal government.

    Looks like that kiosk is using the new Google Maps.

    Brilliant avatar! I’ve always thought GoComics should display if they ever shut down.

    How do you know whom Wiley votes for?
    Are you with the NSA?

    The 2nd amendment authorizes formation of the National Guard. Period!

    @alcluin

    At the very beginnings of this country, this was indeed true, as most citizens used their guns for obtaining food for their families. And so it was possible to even have “Minute Men” types of semi organized militias. But now outside of the official state National Guards, does any reasonable person actually believe that most gun owning private citizens should be considered that organized?


    Besides which, just how would such militias tackle the organized military of the federal government if they thought the government was indeed becoming dictatorial? Yeah, you weekend gun toting accountants and IT professionals, we are now going to be going after trained Navy Seals. Good luck fellows, you are going to need it!!!!

    Perhaps the 2nd Amendment should be interpreted as requiring all gun owners to belong to the National Guard, and use their own weapons while serving.

    Don’t question the wisdom of the government. If you had the right to ask questions, you would already have the ability to get whatever answers you needed.

    @Alexikakos

    I’m sorry, but your 14th amendment conflicts with the fact of known associates of the Weather Underground being high officials, and so cannot be valid. It must be fed into the shredder, as would an enemy of Saddam Hussein or any enlightened leader. All such enemies of perfection must be similarly handled.
