Repealing the Fourth Amendment

We don’t need no stinkin’ Fourth Amendment! That’s the battle cry this morning from Republican Congressman, Geoff Davis of Kentucky. He’s authored a new anti-drug and anti-weapon law that would require every local district to develop search policies – including strip searches that come with built in civil and criminal immunity against prosecution for teachers and staff.

They are calling this un-American legislation, THE STUDENT TEACHER SAFETY ACT OF 2006. The House passed this trash bill on a voice vote, bypassing the committee process and with no way to hold individual members of the House accountable for their votes.

How did a clown like Representative Geoff Davis get elected in the first place? He’s just another politician who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and then attempts to amend it, avoiding the proper political process for amending the Constitution.

I offer no excuse for this but believe Davis must be incredibly ignorant or just plain insane. Perhaps he thinks we should adopt the policing methods of North Korea? I don’t think even Hitler’s Nazis would have adopted this kind of strategy.

In the early days of America Geoff Davis would have faced a large crowd of men carrying torches who would have hauled him off for an educational session on some fun things that can be done with tar and feathers.

However today’s people that inhabit America have no use for the Bill of Rights that hundreds of thousands of our soldiers have fought and died defending.

I’m trying to figure out what most parents would say about schoolteachers and school employees frisking, fondling and striping their children in the name of public safety?

All politicians, with some rare exceptions, are enemies of We The People. It's that old 'absolute power corrupts absolutely' gig....

And so it continues. At least it is more proof that both the democrats and the republicans can work together. Unfortunatly they only seem to work together when it comes to destroying our rights.
