"They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place."

It sure seems like the metal detector stops are a form of detainment, if not arrest, on the way to or from attendance of session.

Thanks Zak, we should all be reading the Constitution until we can recite it by heart.

I have no doubt that the Bezos/Biden/China administration will violate the Constitution many times this year.

At least the bill of rights. I'm hoping they don't ignore my third amendment and make me room the "underprivileged".

The first amendment has been ignored for a while now, and I'm not just talking about speech.

The Constitution has been the most trodden document in D.C., as the Dems use it for virtue signaling while trampling it because few bother to even read it.

City state of D.C. and UNITED STATES CORPORATION changed language to suit corporate ownership?

Article 1 section 6 really puts a crimp in my hopes to see the treasonous Congress people dragged down the stairs of the Capitol by the hair in cuffs.

I had to look it up:

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

Had to look that up too:

Article 1 - The Legislative Branch
Section 6 - Compensation
<>

(The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States.) (The preceding words in parentheses were modified by the 27th Amendment.) They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.

No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such time; and no Person holding any Office under the United States, shall be a Member of either House during his Continuance in Office.

This was a big deal in colonial times. When a British unit came into a town the citizens were expected to give the soldiers room and board while they were there.

Our fourth amendment protections are useless without the third.

Had to look up the Fourth Amendment too:

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.

I get kind of lost after the 5th amendment, though I do know the 10th amendment preserves states rights over anything that isn't federal.

The first 10 amendments happened before the constitution was ratified. They are known as the "Bill of Rights" because our founders knew that if they were not enumerated they would be lost. Many states, including Virginia, would not sign without their inclusion.

Our RIGHTS are under assault. The 1st amendment has essentially been suspended. The second has been under attack for a century or more. The fourth is being violated by big tech and government daily. The other rights are under attack as well.

.

These rights are meant for We The People. Our government has been coopted by corporations that do not have our best interests. In the famous words of Patrick Henry, "Give me liberty or give me death"

Oh wait... If those are the choices, I'll put my fucking mask on to get food! For now.
