Well, not if you're browsing on your phone, you're not.
I guess it depends on the app? From Feedly if I tap on a story it goes directly to the news web site. I searched for "google news" thinking that might be a site. I was presented with a list of stories and when I tapped one again I was taken to that web site. Not sure where you're seeing other behavior, maybe iOS? I would try it with Google Reader but... RIP Google Reader.
The Constitution doesn't grant rights to the citizens of the US. To an extent it recognizes rights all people are considered to have (insert caveats about the time of the founding fathers), but primarily it specifies and limits the powers of the federal government. For example, the 1st doesn't say that US citizens have the right to freedom of religion, speech and assembly, it says the government may not make any laws abridging such rights.
the guy is a Canadian citizen. The CBP of America has no oath or obligation to observe his rights.
The Bill of Rights does not apply only to US citizens. Since the fourth is most relevant to this discussion:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
You could argue that "the people" means the citizens of this country, but I think that's misguided.
If we expect aliens to obey our laws, aliens should be able to expect that we will obey our Constitution when we investigate, prosecute, and punish them.
I'm sure you wouldn't say a foreign national visiting the US has no obligation to obey US law while here. Why, then, do we not have an obligation to obey US law when dealing with him or her?
I'm amused to learn this automatically means I work in the field
That's a logic fail. He said "Understand [sic] how microphones... works, is very much part of being an Audio Technician". So if p (one is an audio technician) then q (one understands microphones). This does not imply that if q then p.
Hell, I've wondered if the Republicans would have been semi-ok with ACA if the damn thing was designed to actually work.
The main idea of the ACA originated from conservatives (specifically the Heritage Foundation). If it had been proposed under a Republican president presumably the Republicans would have been all over it. Literally the reason the Republicans hate it so much is because it was put forward by Democrats.
