What??? The FBI didn't exist until 1940?? Goodness, someone had better tell them because they are celebrating their 96th year of service. Check out their website. The FBI's Uniform Crime Report was brought about in 1930 due to a request from the International Association of Chief's of Police. According to my calculations, that is...let's see...counting the toes...carry the 0... a whole ten years before you say they even existed. Apparently, the Fed's are also able to bend the space time continuum to their will. Those crafty g-men and their flux capacitors.



You are right. Our rights are clearly NOT delineated in the constitution. They are clearly delineated in the Bill of Rights. I'm pretty sure article 1 section 8 outlines the senates ability to create legislation making it legal to wage it's war on drugs.



Narcotics or Controlled Dangerous Substances have also LEGALLY been made illegal.



I have noticed that the courts have eroded our second amendment right. As far as the 4th, it's harder now to obtain a search warrant than it has been in years. Note that the amendment of which you speak makes no mention of probable cause or even reasonable suspicion. Maybe you are thinking of the fourteenth, freedom of movment and all that rot.



Riiight. "..short sighted government interference...supply and demand...government has no business meddling with..." Wow. Like prostitution, loan sharking, gambling, etc. Get the Federal Government out of your Organized Crime. Maybe that can be your presidential slogan.



From the reply to my post on Robbie Bishop, I can see you are no longer able to coherently rebut my points and have resorted to simply degrading my ability to comprehend English.



And with that I declare an end to the posting from me on this topic. I have gotten so far from the original topic I almost forgot what it was and I did forget that I come to this website to read about motorcycles, not discuss politics. Or religion.

Mental Note To Self: Sign up to be cryogenically preserved so that I can be resuscitated, find modre's grave and take an epic Austin Powers-esque ***** on it.



Some respect for the dead please, dip*****.

I hope that a few thoughts from north of the border on the death of HST will not seem inappropriate but, from here, his life and death seems like a summary of America in his/our lifetime.



So much talent, so much insight, so much potential, totally out of control and gradually sliding into self-destruction. He seemed to me to be doing not much more than reflecting to his readers the images of their day to day existence of extremes. The images all around them which they chose to ignore or, when they got his message, to change



Red vs Blue states, Roe vs Wade, Christian fundamentalists vs everyone not "saved", violence running rampant with far more deaths in any given year from gun violence that were ever lost to terrorism. Politics of personal assasination.



So, HST finally blew himself out of this world. My guess it it was not due to a fatal illness nor a simple drunked rampage but, perhaps, despair. A lifetime of sounding the alarm, an expenditure of so much talent and effort and no one responded.



The NRA will no doubt be heard from concerning the effort to pry the weapon from his cold dead hand.



My condolences to the society that gave rise to such a talent and to his many admirers, amoung whom I am one.

I re-read my posts on this topic and failed to detect any whining about serving on a jury. Maybe your eye (or ear) is better than mine. Or maybe I was simply pointing out the unbelievable amount of effort that is being spent on a fruitless war on drugs.



And by the way, some of the framers of our Constitution were concerned that future Americans might get the idea that the people were accorded ONLY those rights listed in the "Bill of Rights." ThatÂ’s the reason for the eleventh amendment: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retrained by the people."



And another thing, here in America the "Constitution" includes the original document and all ratified amendments. No need to draw a distinction between the two when discussing "Constitutional Rights."



Of course, Congress can pass any law – even laws that grossly on our Constitutional rights - if we let them do so. We must be ever vigilant.



Finally, thanks for your contributions to this thread. You are obviously a concerned citizen and well versed on this topic. I enjoy a well thought out argument, and the opportunity we Americans have to make such arguments.



In that spirit, I will now endeavor to start an argument that is more in line with this forum. "Fuel injection will never work as well as carburetors on one or two cylinder motorcycles!"

Since KPaul "volunteered" to leave the message boards he hangs around and moderates nearly every post.



Unless you said something horrible ( I mean really horrible) Sean would never delete your post.



Must be a glitch.

hmmm, seems to be the crux of the biscuit, the government's need to control....organized crime exists because the government creates the opportunity through its laws. it's the legislation of morality at the base here. puritanical influence on the passing of so-called morality. Apparently though, somethings change, gambling, once such an evil undertaking, now becomes government sponsored, lottery's , casino's, offtrack betting...sponsored by your favorite moral legislatures....of course a good reason...sin is fine if the proceeds go to better education...even as our public schoools continue to decline...maybe the worlds oldest profession will be next..proceeds from legalized prostitution to raise money for...got it...social security...yeah thats it

I've been reading about a guy we all seem to know that is very addicted to money and oil, and a lot of people don't seem to mind all the killing he does. Is it is because these are legal substances?

Then you sanctimonius Canadians should close the borders and refuse to do any more business with the Great Satan.



But then, where would you get quality health care?
