He is likely correct which is why it upsets you.
No "likely correct" on this front .. It's easy to say that a majority of voters would be considered low information, and base their opinions on feeling, emotions and misinformation often spewed by the media. It's like watching the movie Idiocracy come to life.

He's damn sure not wrong.....I mean there they are with the info of the ages at their fingertips and they are still dumber than a bag of hammers and retain hardly anything of what they might glean.

What he is bitching about is not as clear cut as he wants to make out. Can one legitimately take his position? Yes. Can one take "privacy" to mean it's no one's business? Yes.

Is it reasonable to subpoena a woman's medical record because you suspect something? If you believe a seperate human life was taken, perhaps so. If you do not, then not really.

I think Clarence Thomas should pen the majority opinion when they outlaw cellphones...

It is not about a women's medical record, it is about being a slut. And costing taxpayers for it.

The evidence pervades this very forum, daily. Presumably the people who are literate and involved post here every day. How many of them could articulate where the "right of privacy" originates, since it is found nowhere in the Constitution. I wonder how many understood that an overturn of RvW meant nothing more than shifting the question to the state legislatures.

I wonder how many understand that the USSC did not take away anyone's rights with this decision.

Cell phones? Americans are more interested in the next America's Got Talent contest than Constitutional issues.

An unreasonable search is derived from a right to privacy. 4th Amendment.

Get the records of police, firefighters, EMS and hospital emergency admissions. That will tell you the truth. And we never get that. All of those TV people who blame others for the downside of our nation and they never say a word about the irresponsible ways of those who costs us a massive number of resources.

Someone tell this bigoted boomer the Constitution can be accessed for free from you iPhone.

Of course the idiots on their stupid I-phones wouldn't understand what the Constitution says.

Trying to get a Moon Bat to understand what a simple statement such as "shall not be infringed" means is like teaching a donkey how to rebuild a Powerglide transmission in a '55 Chevy.

This twitter account has fooled all kinds of leftists who think he is on the Supreme Court. This is how stupid people are.

I suspect what he was talking about is people being more interested in getting on their phones and watching Tik Tok videos, posting pics on Instagram and going on Twitter to see what new silly thing they should outraged over than understanding anything about the Constitution.

Clarence needs to shut up and sit on the bench and get his political activist wife out of overturning elections illegally.

An unreasonable search is expressly called out. "Privacy" is found nowhere, and is undefinable. There is no Constitutional right of privacy, although there are privacy rights in the Constitution. If you don't understand that distinction, refrain.
