Is the Government in your rearview mirror?

in your rearview mirror

Between Alec Baldwin wanting to know what’s in your wallet and William Devane asking you what’s in your safe, one has to wonder if there’s anyone left in this country who has read the Fourth Amendment?

(Modern American family).

fourth amendment text 1

The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights that prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and requires any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. It was adopted in response to the abuse of the writ of assistance, a type of general search warrant issued by the British government and a major source of tension in pre-Revolutionary America.

The Fourth Amendment was introduced in Congress in 1789 by James Madison, along with the other amendments in the Bill of Rights, in response to Anti-Federalist objections to the new Constitution. Congress submitted the amendment to the states on September 28, 1789. By December 15, 1791, the necessary three-quarters of the states had ratified it.

Thomas Jefferson - portrait 1

(Thomas Jefferson).

On March 1, 1792, Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson announced the adoption of the amendment.

Because the Bill of Rights did not initially apply to the states, and federal criminal investigations were less common in the first century of the nation’s history, there is little significant case law for the Fourth Amendment before the 20th century.

The amendment was held to apply to the states in Mapp v. Ohio (1961). Under the Fourth Amendment, search and seizure (including arrest) had to be limited in it’s scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing court, by a law enforcement officer who has sworn by it.

Fourth Amendment case law deals with three central questions: what government activities constitute “search” and “seizure”; what constitutes probable cause for these actions; and how violations of Fourth Amendment rights should be addressed.

Early court decisions limited the amendment’s scope to a law enforcement officer’s physical intrusion onto private property, but with Katz v. United States (1967), the Supreme Court held that its protections, such as the warrant requirement, extend to the privacy of individuals as well as physical locations.

Law enforcement officers need a warrant for most search and seizure activities, but the Court has defined a series of exceptions for consent searches, motor vehicle searches, evidence in plain view, exigent circumstances, border searches, and other situations.

The exclusionary rule is one way the amendment is enforced. Established in Weeks v. United States (1914), this rule holds that evidence obtained through a Fourth Amendment violation is generally inadmissible at criminal trials.

Evidence discovered as a later result of an illegal search may also be inadmissible as “fruit of the poisonous tree,” unless it inevitably would have been discovered by legal means. (Source Wikipedia).

If memory serves, (and it does), the first telephone my family ever had was a large black apparatus that hung on the wall between our dining room and our kitchen.

Its most fascinating attribute was a hand crank on the left side that featured a small pear-shaped brass knob.

It’s most annoying feature was the six other families on the same line.

My point, folks weren’t any more fond of someone having access to their privacy when I was a lad, than they are now.

Question: So why do we elect people to represent us in this nation that either don’t understand the “Fourth Amendment” of our Constitution, ..or who simply don’t respect it?

I received a comment from an individual a few weeks back that missed my readers forum because I, (in my mastery of perception), ..felt it was too simplistic.

The young woman wrote; …

It’s taken me all of the last six months to read everything that you’ve written to date. I write copy for an advertising firm in New York City, so my question is, (if you have no staff), not only how do you write what you write every day, but why do you do it?” ..the communiqué was signed: “Cinderella”.

The second reason I declined to use her comment was that her email address was either illegitimate, (as reported by my Internet provider), or it was blocked?

My answer, (at least in my mind), is simple; I utilize my memory, my imagination and the First Amendment. 

first amendment text - scroll

Two score and sixteen years ago, at the end of my freshman year in high school, I had a “coveted” appointment with the Disney Company for a summer job.

I was an art major in school with a passion for history, (to be specific), early “American and Western” history, and a lack of appreciation for the English language that could be classified as monumental.

Accordingly, had I not learn to read and appreciate “words” from reading Western novels during my years in elementary school, tying my shoes might have been the pinnacle of my accomplishments in life.

Reading was my salvation as a kid with two older brothers to whom, I was an (eternal irritant), particularly on the mornings before school when it was necessary to make sure that their breath was fresh and that every hair was in place…

According to Webster: “guise,” False appearance; pretense.

..of representing and helping people, do just the opposite.

Now to which 46 Senators voted to transfer jurisdiction of our Second Amendment to 193 foreign nations…

In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, that reads; …

“To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.” The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on (all) private guns and ammo.”

Embarrassingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to usurp a portion of the U.S. Constitution and place it under foreign control.

Albert Einstein - rationality 2a

According to Webster: “hate,” To feel hostility or animosity.

Question: Can you provide me with a rational explanation of why black folks think white people hate them and why white folks think black people feel the same?

I served in the military in combat with black men in Vietnam, so for those of you who have not experienced the horrifying taste of “military combat.” let me be perfectly clear…

..there is “no disdain” for the man standing beside you, due to the color of his skin, his religion or his political affiliations.

trust with your life 2

..you trust him with your life, and he trust you with his. 

Question: If Americans in “combat ” can achieve this trust and solidarity, ..why can’t Americans, black, brown, white or in between, achieve trust and solidarity in life at home?

Simple, because combat demands that men work together to stay alive, whereas a society that is motivated by commerce, demands that people compete for a piece of the pie.

Hello Daniel, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your heartfelt comment and opinion. As I know nothing about you other than the fact that you’re extremely rude, …

And since my mother taught me as a child that rudeness is a flaw, ..I will give you the (benefit of the doubt) and accept the fact that your mother never told you…

Which of course isn’t at all uncommon among folks who are misled by the idealistic drama that progressive liberals spew at America’s colleges and universities.

There is no confusion in my mind about the fact that America is more than one culture and more than one nation.

So that we’re clear, “my nation” is an America of self-reliant and responsible individuals both wealthy and poor…

My part of America is occupied by decent men and women who wear blue shirts, work boots and aprons…

My people believe in God, the flag and Mom’s Apple pie, my people have defended (you) and this Nation with their blood for generations.

My people and I have made you possible, but you don’t have to thank me, ..even if you might someday “stumble over” the inclination. 

I am in (deed) a high school dropout. I am also in (deed) ..an informed American citizen with “legitimate” concerns for the future of this Nation, ..my Nation!

When it comes to academia and its programming of young American minds to believe that the U.S. Constitution is a document without substance, ..I take (genuine) exception.

When it comes to following a philosophy, I tend to follow the mind of a fellow by the given name of Samuel Clemens, who in his “self-awareness,” gleefully declared…

Mark Twain quote  - schooling 1a

Gainful employment worked for me and it worked for me well for 46 years of my adult life. Not to mention the “fact” that my gainful employment worked even better for “our” government once L.B.J. and his progressive liberal co-conspirators voted to (reassign) my money from the (Social Security trust fund), that F.D.R. promised would never be used for anything other than my retirement, ..into the U.S. Treasury “General Fund,” so (they), “our” Government representatives could spend our retirement money with impunity.

If “our” government steals from us, they chalk it up to “simply doing business.”

Albeit, ..if a working man or woman comes up short on “their” taxes, (our) government “unabashedly” labels them a felon. 

So I ask you Mr. Retired University Professor, would you like me to provide you with Webster’s definition of stupid, ..or do you have your own dictionary?

According to Webster: “stu·pid,” Slow to learn or understand.

(1941 International pickup truck). 

Question: Why am I displaying a picture of a rusty old 1941 International pickup truck?

Chuck - Black hat 7a

Simple; This old truck and I were both “new” in 1941, and although we’re both somewhat worse for wear, were both still around for photographs.

Question: Okay, so now I can understand the Memory Lane part of your title, but what do (you and this old truck) have to do with political correctness?

Simple; When this old truck and I were both new, people in America used to greet each other on the street with; “Good Morning, ..how are you today?  ..and America’s black folks had yet to become hyphenated.

But then Jesse Jackson was only three months old and Al Sharpton wasn’t destined to arrive for another 13 years.
