Markets in Everything: 4th Amendment Clothing


T-Shirts printed with the 4th Amendment in Metallic Ink are available here for $45.  The website says that if you wear it, "They won't find anything except for a challenge to their unwarranted searches."

Also from the website:

"The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, meant to prevent unwarranted search and seizure, is readable on TSA body scanners.

4th Amendment Wear. Assert your rights without saying a word."

I can see it now... The metallic ink starts to react as you are going through the full body scanners. "Shutting down-no, attempted shutdown. It's not-it's not,
it's not shutting down!" Aliens start flying out of the body scanner-Xen portal. As you struggle to get out of the security check a random TSA agent remarks that he never thought he'd see a resonance cascade, let alone
create one.

How about they do one with metallic ink on the inside in the shape of knives and guns, give them something to freak out about

I really like that idea, but I'm not sure I want to be strip searched every time.

Marc Carey, who blogs at www.bluegrassbulletin.com has started his own live of scanner wear: http://scannershirts.com/

If you poke around his blog, he wrote a pretty good piece about trying to find a US facility to manufacturer them.

I think I need to make tenth amendment toilets. They hold the old 3.4 gallons/flush (rather than 1.6 gallons twice). Of course they would be made, sold and marketed only in Tennessee thus no federal intervention.

"I think I need to make tenth amendment toilets. They hold the old 3.4 gallons/flush (rather than 1.6 gallons twice). Of course they would be made, sold and marketed only in Tennessee thus no federal intervention."

Based on such egregious previous SCOTUS decisions as Gonzales v. Raich and Wickard v. Filburn, you would probably still find yourself at odds with the all encompassing Commerce Clause. It would seem that no possible human action - or non-action - escapes this all seeing Eye of Sauron.

Ron,

You are right. The Supreme Court already has flushed the tenth amendment down the toilet. They have the copyright on the name.

It looks like I picked the right state for my tenth amendment manufacturing location. There is a bill before the Tennessee House and Senate to eliminate federal regulations on items manufactured and sold within Tennessee: Senate Bill SB1712. This bill has the full backing of the TEA party in TN. It looks like the return of the 3.4 gallon flush toilet and the incandescent light bulb.

What a breath of fresh air! That's a great start. Now, only 49 states to go.
