I wonder if Iraq got is own version of #3 in its constitution? And does it apply to U.S. soldiers?
The Fourth amendment has been under such assault by the current administration, that it looks smudged and tattered. And the populace doesn't seem concerned. That is what worries me the most.
Thanks for your regular constitution posts. Have a good week, betmo.

carol gee is correct, the populace doesn't seem concerned.

One of the people who attend our Tuesday Peace March hands out copies of the Declaration of Independence. Many people just don't even want one and some don't know what it is, really!

I'm glad to see Constitution Mondays here at Life's Journey. Thanks Betmo!
