An Idiot's Guide to the Bill of Rights-Amendments Nine and Ten

Alrighty Moonbeam, we are concluding this little experiment into the Bill of Rights. So far, there's nothing about Late-Term Abortion, a Right to Privacy, or a Right to Cry "Fire" in a crowded movie theater. I'm guessing that those must be hidden in number Nine or Ten. Here we go....

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

Oh, that's easy and it covers the partial birth abortion slant. This means that just because rights are not specifically called out, that means that you still have them. Oh, bring on the all-night abortion clinics. But, wait, doesn't that mean that I can have sex with four year old boys, too? Dammit, that living, breathing document done thoed me a curve. Damn, dead, white guys you really screwed up with that one.

Amendment Number Ten: 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.

Hey, this one clears that last blunder up. This means that if something is not specifically called out in the Constitution, the Federal government cannot do a damn thing about it. This means that Roe v. Wade is actually unconstitutional. Wow. Go figger. Those Right to Lifers have been right all along.

ANY POWER NOT DELEGATED BY THE CONSTITUTION TO THE FED IS RESERVED TO THE FOLKS BACK HOME. Get it? How in Hell has our country gotten so screwed up? Well, in my opinion it is because those Senators and Congressmen have run rough-shod over the Constitution. What say you?

Correct. One or two more Supreme Court justices should right the wrongs from the last 40+ years.
