Bugger off, ACLU

Somehow, the ACLU thinks that a North Carolina law from 1805 is "un-Constitutional." So, they have to get involved. Why? Because one lady lost her job working for the Pender County sheriff’s office.

There are some 144,000 unmarried couples living together in North Carolina, and they are all breaking the law – a statute that has been on the books since 1805.

The law against cohabitation is rarely enforced. But now the American Civil Liberties Union is suing to overturn it altogether, on behalf of a former sheriff’s dispatcher who says she had to quit her job because she wouldn’t marry her live-in boyfriend.

Deborah Hobbs, 40, says her boss, Sheriff Carson Smith of Pender County, near Wilmington, told her to get married, move out or find another job after he found out she and her boyfriend had been living together for three years. The couple did not want to get married, so Hobbs quit.

Well woop de doo. The law may not be very modern, but, it is the law. I would also like to know how it is un-Constitutional. I have read my copy, and I cannot see anything that makes it so. Quite the opposite. Tha pesky 10th Amendment thing, about all Rights not reserved to the Feds given to the States, etc, etc. Guess the ACLU ignored that one, much like the ignore the 2nd Amendment.

The ACLU also seems to be wanting more convicted felons to vote in NJ:

Nearly half of New Jersey county election offices do not consistently follow voting registration laws regarding former convicts, the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey has found.

In fact, as the group learned through a survey, nine of the state’s 21 county offices illegally blocked registrations of people who have completed their sentences and are eligible to vote. The results of the survey were published Monday.

Gee, just what NJ needs, more convicted felons voting for the Democratic Party. Oops, I forgot that they are part of the Parties base, what with the leniencey that the Dems like to criminals and all.

    But the first law is based on relgion, dontcha know, and communism (the ACLU) thrives on the lack of religion. So they need to get rid of the laws so they can more effectively promote communism, now called “Civil Rights.”

    Great post!

    Emphasis on “she quit.” She wasn’t fired. See? People make choices all the time. But, the ACLU is our guardian of liberty, dontchaknow.

  4. Hmm, hadn’t thought of it in terms of religion. Good point.
