    Re: Why does no-one care about the 3rd amendment?

    I would like to put forward the notion that the fact that military personnel, National guard reserve and active, living off their assigned military posts are violating my 3rd amendment rights. Why? Because by allowing the to live off post they are increasing the demand for housing in certain areas, thus raising my rent, thus due to my current employment making me unable to pay the full rent myself, thus requiring me to get a roommate, and this individual happens to be a Soldier himself. Therefore while the United States may not be directly violating it they are certainly putting certain circumstances into place that leave me no other option than to be homeless or quarter a troop in my house.

    What'dya think of that.

    Id say if THATS the line you are gonna take than soldiers ought to sue a thankless community for not expressing their appreciation for raising their home values.

    I'm more concerned about the lack of attention paid to the 9th Amendment. Hamilton clearly voiced his concern and Madison echoed his thoughts that, should a bill of rights pass in the United States, courts and legislatures may interpret our rights only as what is written in the bill.

    Guess the prominent line of thought even among Supreme Court Strict Constructionists?

    "The Constitution just sets minimums... Most of the rights that you enjoy go way beyond what the Constitution requires."
    -Antonin Scalia

    "No particular results then, so far, but only an attitude of orientation, is what the pragmatic method means. The attitude of looking away from first things, principles, 'categories,' supposed necessities; and of looking towards last things, fruits, consequences, facts." - William James
