Not your grandfather’s Bill of Rights. Or anyone’s for that matter.

I’m so glad I don’t have any children, especially school-aged ones (I have nothing against having children, but just never got around to it, and based on the way the world is today, I’m sort of glad I don’t have that to worry about now). I do, however, have plenty of nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews and I worry about what they are being taught, especially after seeing this.


Check out this summarized version of the Bill of Rights being used in a Texas middle school and see how many peculiarities you can spot. (Hint – Amendment II is interesting.)

Thanks to Bonnie Kristian over at the Young Americans for Liberty blog, and be sure to check her post out for more.

Update: The more I look at this document, the more the Amendment IV revision not only annoys me, but strikes me as particularly dangerous.

We went from this: “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.”

To this: “[The police] usually need permission to search our homes.”
