    Hrmm.. maybe now that they have a copy in their custody, they'll actually read it. :p



    ... the truly disgusting part is that the article has to explain what the BOR actually is. :eek:

    The federal government has a long history of stealing our civil rights.

    Question:
    How does the principal of SIFAS apply here?

    Why can the FBI take this back from the current owner?

    Yes, that is pretty puzzling, the current owner probably didn't know it was hot property. Even if so, he darn sure didn't do the five fingering so should be compensated. Reminds me of the deal over the double struck gold eagle they confiscated based on FDR's outlawing of private gold bullion.



    Ah, yeah. They probably shoulda gone ahead and explained what the Constitution was too.

    "They were ratified in 1791" In an example of their excellent foresight, the founding dominantgenderraceforepersons wrote one, the 2nd with a clause establishing the National Guard which finally came to fruition in 1903.

    When I first started to read it I thought that it was going to be a satire story about the govt discovering that much of what they do isn't allowed under the BOR. Oh well, maybe next time.

    Still, a very interesting piece of history.
