Just Gene



The first ten amendments (Bill of Rights) were ratified effective December 15, 1791


Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Amendment III

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment V

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Amendment VI

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

Amendment VII

In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

Amendment VIII

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

I       Freedom of religion – condoms over conscience

        Freedom of speech – unless it offends someone

        Freedom of assembly – if you can avoid the drones and cameras

        Freedom to petition – only with redacted answers via FOI

II     Right to keep and bear arms –the security of a FREE  state, not a government CONTROLLED state and   when the police decide you shouldn’t have them, ala Katrina

III   No soldier shall be quartered – the same as in England, except for the Olympics

IV   The right to be secure in your person, house – unless a federal agent issues themselves a no knock   Warrant or your property is needed for a sports stadium

V    No person shall be held to answer for a crime without a presentation or indictment of a grand jury  –   unless someone suggests you may be a potential terrorist i.e. ex-military, tea party member, or just   holding your Bible – then you disappear

VI   Right to a speedy and public trial – re-read IV &V

VII  Right to trial by jury – unless you’re forced into small claims court

VIII Excessive bail shall not be required – if you can’t afford it, it’s excessive

IX   The enumerations of certain rights shall not deny others retained by the people – unless it’s for our own  good, like health insurance, buying corporations, sending money to our allies enemies

X    The powers not delegated to the Feds are reserved to the states or the people – we are not a Sovereign  Union of States, we are a union of Sovereign States – so I don’t even know where to begin



A redundancy


Could someone check the archives – is it still there?!!

    Our free state’s security is being threatened by the federal government. We need a well-regulated militia.

    Good summary, Gene. They got us off the main road, and off the dirt road, and out in the pasture.
