He also touched on current events, such as the Time Warner - Comcast merger: "According to the Supreme Court, corporations are now considered as people, which is great because it’s always been my dream to punch Time Warner in the face."

I don't think there is a lot of confusion about this one. The 4th amendment we seem to have forgotten about altogether, did the NSA spill barbecue sauce on this one? It doesn't say "some unreasonable search and seizures." The 5th amendment is mostly for people to invoke on the second half of Law and Order." Take a look:
