"any activity which the Constitution does not specifically say is within it's jurisdiction."
Which is why it's important to read the rest of the Constitution and not just the Bill of Rights loll. This also includes subsequent Amendments, but that's NOT even what I'm talking about.
Also being as this is a legal document being discussed by mega judges, you better damn well believe that wording is important. So paraphrasing is not going to fly.
Your little spiel about intervening in "activities" not "specifically" mentioned is not how the 10th goes.

Here, this is how it goes.
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Notice how it also doesn't say "powers not delegated to the US by the Bill of Rights". It says "Constitution". There are other parts of the Constitution preceding the Bill of Rights directly involved in describing the powers of the branches of government.

Good god man.
