Default Bill of Non Rights

"We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help
everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots,
keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the
blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our
great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and
establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt
ridden, delusional, and other bed-wetters. We hold these truths
to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill
of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights."

ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or
any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire
them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This
country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone -- not
just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different
opinion, etc.; but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will
be.

ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you
stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect
the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently
wealthy.

ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing.
Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly
help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing
generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve
nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional
couch potatoes....get an education and go to work....don't expect everyone else to take care of you!

ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That would be
nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in
public health care.

ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people.
If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be
surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If
you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens,
don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a
place where you still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a
life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want
you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we
expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and
vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.

ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American
means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is
a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic
laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We don't care where you
are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you
came from!

ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country's history
or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And
yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or
no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST
is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with
it, TOUGH!

All good except this. This is bullshit. "In God We Trust" is probably younger than some of the people on this board.

You, sir, have obviously never studied history and are probably to young to care how or why our country was formed.

That part is the oldest of all....like me, I am sure I am older than you!

never studied history?


In God We Trust became the official U.S. national motto after the passage of an Act of Congress in 1956.

The Congress passed the Act of April 22, 1864. This legislation changed the composition of the one-cent coin and authorized the minting of the two-cent coin. The Mint Director was directed to develop the designs for these coins for final approval of the Secretary. IN GOD WE TRUST first appeared on the 1864 two-cent coin.
I don't think theres many 143 year old people here. Not even Grandmans that old.

whoops, wasn't on paper money until then. but, nonetheless, we were well into the civil war by the time that happened (2 cent coin). Please tell me how this proves that the U.S. was FOUNDED as a CHRISTIAN nation.

Ask Kerwin to explain the constitution to you.

I honestly think that the founding fathers never imagined anything but Christianity being the backbone of the principles of the US government. Up until that time there really wasn't much knowledge with outside religions to deem them a "threat". Sure, within the Catholic church you had various sects, and I think that is mainly why there is a separation of church and state bit in the constitution. No where in it though does it prevent a private entity such as a college from enforcing its religious views or opinions on its governing principles.

It's a grey line between government endorsed religion and simply being religious as a government. I guarantee you when/if government folks visit muslims during their holidays they use the appropriate greetings etc..

no, i understand that he feels that the U.S. was founded on "Judeo-Christian Values" and that our laws should reflect that. When he tries to say that, people shout him down and he has to "walk on eggshells" and not offend anybody, playing the persecuted Christian role.

No, but nice try. Everyone is so afraid of offending someone, not me. Example: nativity scenes were cool because the majority celebrated Christmas, but now everyone is afraid of offending a muslim or atheist. I don't live my life in fear of offending someone.
