Suzy Sock Puppet BS: Rights and Freedoms - Gone? (31) RE: BS: Rights and Freedoms - Gone? 28 Aug 13

Parts of the First Amendment- free press (unprecedented prosecution of whistleblowers and journalists; much governmental obstruction of right to assemble).

Second Amendment- there is strong opposition there but many and varied attempts at infringement. Because I hate weapons, I am ambivalent on this but it cannot be denied that there has been infringement. If you gave a right, you don't need a license or a permit (the same applies to right to assemble).

Fourth Amendment- spying activities of the NSA and so fourth, plain as the nose on your face.

Fifth, Sixth & Eighth Amendments- derailed by the Patriot Act- unlawful detention and/or interrogation, torture, execution without due process. Going to get much worse, you'll see...

Ninth Amendment- Right to privacy

Tenth Amendment- federal encroachment of state's rights. When the fed strong arms state and local authority, treating them as subordinates in a hierarchy. They are not really supposed to be doing that.
