Things I Learn From Listening to NJ 101.5

Just before 8:00 AM this morning, on my way to work, Gearhart was talking about TSA searches (all paraphrasing):

Gearhart: Where does it say in the Constitution that you have a right not to be groped?

Fourth Amendment:
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.
Gearhart: Where does it say anything about separation of church and state in the Constitution?

First Amendment:
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.
Gearhart: (Chuckling) I guess our founding fathers didn't have the foresight to think about x-ray machines when they wrote the Constitution in 1776! (ha, ha, ha!)

The Constitution was ratified in 1787.

As they are so fond of pointing out, NJ 101.5 is THE premiere source for news and information in NJ.

God help us all.
