Tragically Supreme Irony

What Tragically Supreme Irony? At the Very Same Time the Whorehouse, sorry, I mean Whitehouse is vehemently defending Piers Morgan's 1st Amendment Right to Freely speak it is doing all in it's power to GUT the 2nd Amendment which is the Only Amendment that Guarantees and Protects that ALL the Bill of Rights has teeth and staying power.

You want to here some more supreme Irony?

those who are furious of the gutting of the 2nd amendment, but calm and quite during the gutting of the 4th and 5th. I find it funny when I hear about "DC cannot just ban semi autos or guns, we have the 2a." Yea, well they did a pretty good job getting rid of the 4th and 5th, and the 9th and 10th as well. Perhaps people should care about the whole bill of rights, and not just those that they exercise most frequently?

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James

You Nailed IT!

Yes, as a whole, the complete Bill of Rights has been thrown by the wayside. Of the 10 Amendments, the only one that, thus far, I can think of that has NOT been gutted is the 3rd. I know of specific dire violations of the other 9 Amendments. I think the difference is that, with respect to the destruction of the other Amendments, you don't, Personally, know about it's gutting until you, personally, bump into it so to speak, and the media doesn't tell us about it so it remains outside the vast majorities sphere of consciousness. Rights have been taken from us but they are not rights that we "exercise" on a regular basis so we don't recognize their disappearance until we do exercise it. For example, how many people, in their whole lifetime, Petition the government for Redress of Grievances? For myself, I have formally Petitioned for Redress near a dozen times and, can you hear it? The Thundering Silence? In final conclusion, a federal judge determined that we are free to Petition to our Heart's content but the gov't is under NO OBLIGATION to reply. If the gov't isn't obligated to reply then that right is naught but air and wasted ink. But the media didn't broadcast it to the world. Gutting of the 2nd Amendment, conversely, involves TAKING property from someone who has paid money for a particular purpose, in order to acquire that piece of property, or a valued "heirloom" that may have been passed down from generation to generation, so it hits home to those individuals. It's the only Amendment that has direct effect upon Tangible Personal Property that is, in some cases, a part of many people's daily life. The other Amendments deal more with Intangibles that you don't miss until you need them and, for some of them, most people can go through their whole lives without needing certain of the Amendments. But, what get's lost, often in the tumult, is that these are NOT "Rights" Granted by the Constitution, or "Constitutional Rights" even, they are NATURAL RIGHTS Granted by Our Maker, granted by our status as Human Beings, simply being Recognized by our Founders in the Constitution, simply being Enumerated.

The things that will destroy us are: politics without principle;
pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; and
worship without sacrifice: Mahatma Mohandas K. Gan
