Constitution Pt. 29

Amendment V.  No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

So there it is. The fabled “I’ll take the fifth.” A little more involved than Hollyweed makes it sound, huh? Other than spell check’s incessant nagging that offense is spelled wrong (I’ll leave it as they wrote it) it’s a fairly easy to understand Amendment. How about that part about being deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law? Sound like things that a certain Chairman might be doing as we speak?

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or you just want to tell me I’m an idiot or something, just leave them in the comments. Until next time, screw environmentalists.
