Greetings good citizen,

Um, once again markets around the world are bleeding from the eye-sockets but apparently that doesn’t mean anything.

While I wrote the other day about the ‘game’ it has become, trying to decipher the headlines, I didn’t leave open the one factor that the corporate owned media can’t totally avoid.

Every once in a while the fuckers HAVE TO report the truth…

Which is to point out that how they ‘spin’ this truth doesn’t matter, on occasion they are forced to report what’s really going on.

Like yesterday’s repeal of the 4th amendment Se habla ‘unreasonable search and seizure’?
The Supreme Court on Monday ruled by a 5-to-4 vote that officials may strip-search people arrested for any offense, however minor, before admitting them to jails even if the officials have no reason to suspect the presence of contraband.

We have this from the ‘swing vote’ on this decidedly unconstitutional decision…

Justice Kennedy responded that “people detained for minor offenses can turn out to be the most devious and dangerous criminals.” He noted that Timothy McVeigh, later put to death for his role in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, was first arrested for driving without a license plate. “One of the terrorists involved in the Sept. 11 attacks was stopped and ticketed for speeding just two days before hijacking Flight 93,” Justice Kennedy added. [snip]

Besides being ‘unfit’ (and he’s not alone) he also demonstrates and almost obtuse unwillingness to comprehend the term ‘unreasonable’.

To Mr. K and the conservative majority, we are ALL criminals that are undeserving of constitutional protection! Just look at the terrorists and their criminal backgrounds!

Makes you wonder if the Justices all have ‘squeaky clean’ criminal records and if so, how did they get that way?

Or am I being too hard on the, what do they call them, ‘honorable gentleman’ (who is unfit to scrap the dog shit off of my shoes!)

Seems Mr. Kennedy has revealed himself to be ‘the weakest link’ when it comes to giving up that extra vote conservatives need when stripping away our ‘constitutional protections’.

Not for nothin’ good citizen but isn’t this beginning to look suspiciously like ‘bankers and bonuses?’

Unsurprisingly, this isn’t unexpected from our badly damaged Justice system that wouldn’t/couldn’t recognize criminal activity if it punched them in the nose!

Have any of these assholes even laid eyes on (much less read) the Constitution or, more importantly the Bill of Rights?

The ‘litany’ continues:
According to opinions in the lower courts, people may be strip-searched after arrests for violating a leash law, driving without a license and failing to pay child support. Citing examples from briefs submitted to the Supreme Court, Justice Breyer wrote that people have been subjected to “the humiliation of a visual strip-search” after being arrested for driving with a noisy muffler, failing to use a turn signal and riding a bicycle without an audible bell.

A nun was strip-searched, he wrote, after an arrest for trespassing during an antiwar demonstration.

Explain to me what ‘unreasonable’ means, like Bankers and bonuses, SOMEONE isn’t clear on the meaning of the term…

It also seems that some one is LIKELY a level 3 SEX OFFENDER WITH A BADGE!

When a ‘strip search’ is used to ‘humiliate/embarrass’ an otherwise law abiding citizen, it is done solely to assert authority. (Under the ‘laws of the jungle’ a ‘strip search’ is a killing offense!)

What’s the message this sort of heavy-handed behavior sends? We have a badge, we can do anything we want to you!

Once again we are faced with the gruesome task of having to decide what the difference is between a hired gun and a thug with a badge?

Somehow being raped ‘legally’ isn’t any more comforting than being raped illegally…

Naturally, the sticking point here is the definition of what is ‘reasonable’?

The, er, conservative point of view is that we will ‘hobble’ efforts to safely jail felons if we don’t insure that newly admitted inmates, however briefly, are not thoroughly searched before being admitted to the general population…

Although this has been extended to people who may be facing temporary confinement in a holding cell…because some IDIOT COP wants to show you who’s boss…

We revolted against monarchy precisely because of this variety of heavy-handed law enforcement tactics!

At this rate we will soon be forced to house the families of the local police department in secure bunkers to thwart attempts at ‘retribution’ for their humiliating their neighbors.

And somehow the clueless conservatives DON’T view bullshit like this as active ‘class war’, friggin’ incredible!

If you vote Republican you may as well slit your own throat…but if you’re too squeamish to do it yourself, your friendly local conservative will be more than happy to do it for you (because to him/her you are nothing more that a waste of space.)

Which brings us to an even more disturbing puzzle, conservatives think anyone they don’t like/disagree with is a ‘waste of space’ that would be better off dead.

Since conservatives don’t like anyone, who is a conservative?

I know it’s illogical but so is conservatism…

And apparently, according to ‘illogical conservatives’ none of us are worthy of the protections of the Constitution, thus are those protections being stripped from us one by one, while our fucking politicians sit there and twiddle their thumbs…doing nothing.

WTF, good citizen!

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
