"The wording of the 9th is clear, unambiguous and to the point. No cigar. Try again."

"...no more interpretable than a waterblot on the Constitution."
former U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Robert Bork (on the 9th Amendment)

Oh, who to believe?

See my post #121. I think the 14th Amendment really screwed up the 9th. (to tpaine: Not that I agree!)

Of course. You don't have to interpret a waterblot. It's obviously a waterblot; it can't be anything else. Therefore the 9th can't mean anything else than what it says.

BTW, do you have the whole quote and the context? If you do post it. Such a fragment could have been saying anything.

That's why there had to be an amendment for liquor prohibition and why drug prohibition, like firearm prohibition, has to be accomplished through Article 1, secion 8 clause 3.

You can believe whomever you want. Nothing I can say will make it clear that you, along with most of us, have been had.
