In New Jersey, one's home is not one's castle after all. The real castle, it turns out, is the car.
The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled 4-3 yesterday that police do not need a reason to ask permission to search someone's home.
The same court four years ago issued rules saying police must have a good reason before asking motorists if they can search their cars.

But, under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948
