Wow, just wow, ganjadude. Plenty of people have used exactly that "incoherent" logic to claim all manner of crap. It has been used to claim that warrantless searching of email is okay, that warrantless search and seizure of electronically stored documents is okay, to claim that banning modern handguns and rifles is okay. It sounds very ridiculous the way it was written but completely legit when phrased properly, doesn't it.

but that was infrared. You see, when it was visible light we didn't need warrants then a document was written that said they did. Then this infrared thing came along and they said that the constitution didn't cover infrared because it didn't exist when the constitution was written. Then the courts said that infrared requires a warrant. The interpretation is not infrared requires a warrant because a search is a search but because a court said so. Now we have this radar thing and it doesn't require a warrant because it wasn't around when the constitution was written and the court only said that infrared gets added to what was around when the constitution was written.
