Happy Belated Birthday

It was Bill’s birthday yesterday, and I forgot to mention it. Mr. Rights was born (ratified) on December 15, 1791, making him… oh, pretty old now (you do the math). His mind is clear and sharp as a tack, but his body is on life support at the nursing home. He’s been mugged so many times, it’s a wonder he’s alive at all. Some of his limbs are mere stumps now. Fortunately, he’s made of stronger stuff than you or I, and his body can regenerate — though it’s extremely difficult and would take all of our efforts to make it happen.

Bill’s a great guy. Keep him in your thoughts and remind people how important he is to all of us.

    Amen to that! Funny, I was reading this as I was drinking from my Bill of Rights coffee mug – the one where rights vanish as it heats up. 🙂

    I suspect that only evil knievel can truly empathize with bill.

    Everything for the state and nothing outside the state. The state is mommy/daddy and will keep me safe. Save me state! I’ll sign away my rights if you keep me safe. I don’t need any rights those concepts are outdated.

  • Why we fight

    When they take away Bills voice we are all doomed.

    Has Bill tried medical cannabis? Perhaps soon since it will be legal in DC?

    Dear Bill;

    Did you get the memo? Ahhh, You’re just a g*d d*mned piece of paper. Our plans for the ‘human resources’ do not include them having rights or liberties, only privileges, punishments and higher taxes for their honest labors. Now shut up and quit causing trouble or we’ll put you in the shredder. Mmmmkay?

    Sincerely,
    Corporate Whores, Pin Striped Bandits, Banksters and Politrixters

    “Man will never be free
    until the last king
    is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.”
    ~ Denis Diderot

    “Stop throwing the Constitution in my face!
    It is just a Goddamn piece of paper”
    ~ George Bush, Saturday, December 10, 2005

    “If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the government’s ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees.”
    ~ President Bill Clinton, August 12, 1993

    The United States can’t be so fixed on our desire
    to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans . . . .
    — Bill Clinton, March 1, 1993,
    during a press conference in Piscataway, N.J.
    (Boston Globe, 3/2/93, page 3; and USA Today, 3/11/93

    . . . unfortunately, we can’t control the actions of everyone.
    ~ Bill Clinton, April 20, 1993

    “When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of
    individual freedom to Americans, it was assumed that the Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly . . . [However, now] there’s a lot of irresponsibility. And so a lot of people say there’s too much freedom. When personal freedom’s being abused, you have to move to limit it.”
    ~ Bill Clinton, MTV’s “Enough is Enough,” March 22, 1994

    “DEA Success Update: Let’s see. After 20 years of relentless federal Drug War activity, while the price of world-class marijuana has gone
    from $60 an ounce to $450, the price of quality cocaine has plummeted from $125 a gram to $30, and 30%-pure heroin has dropped from $700 a gram to about $100. Way to go, boys!”
    ~ High Times, April 1995

    “One may well ask: How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others? The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”
    — Martin Luther King, Jr.
