    Many seem to believe that simply because we disagree with laws that they somehow are unconstitutional. Others seem to believe that laws are enacted through consensus. Most seem to believe that the constitution should be interpreted by "morality" and not through uniformity.

    I don't like certain demographics but accept due process and equal protection (for what it worth). I'm still not compelled to accept any demographic. Laws were created to restrict one and expand another. Somebody loses. There is no right or wrong answer....... there's just outcomes. You may actually believe that you have rights. Who grants these rights???? Who enforces your "right against unreasonable search and seizure"???? Who grants you the right to anything???

    I see a lot of text book answers, popular responses,,,,,,, that may get u elected class president or voted most popular. There are many who believe that the preamble to the constitution is included in the constitution. Your rights are granted through the opinion of nine people....and then must be extended to you (interpreted) by another nine (en banc) people .......under the nine people who initially granted them.

    What you or I believe has no effect on the law. The law is never argued on a personal level........Most of you argue your position on a personal platform.

    Why????

    L.A. Do not forget people are like ants; you throw sugar they will come from all sides; if you throw poison they run like hell. Do not forget since the beginning of time, the animal like nature; rule or be ruled is a basic instinct. Even animals will fight off others once they caught a meal.
    So that is life!! However people have been way too creative and heap the one rule on top of the other etc. etc. Otherwise our lawyers would be without big incomes. Also do not forget our Constitution was written in 1776, when no one stole your I-Pad, or your car. This old document has become a bit of outdated, but our leaders always manage to somehow by twisting and turning to make it apply to these times. So "laws" and "interpretations" will continue as usual, whatever suits the situation or who benefits from it. So if I lived in 1776, I did not have to worry about speeding tickets, smoking pot, or drinking my home brew, or greedy lawyers. Just milk the goat and be happy.
