The following was written by State Representative Mitchell Kaye from
This guy should have run for President:
"We, the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to
help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any
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,
guiltridden, 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 that they require a Bill
of No Rights".
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.
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 channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the
world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.
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.
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.
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.
You do not have the right to physically harm other
people. If you kidnap, rape, intentio don't be
surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.
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
You don't have the right to demand that our children risk
their lives in foreign wars to soothe your aching
conscience. We hate oppressive governments and
won't lift a finger to stop you from going to fight if you'd
like. However, we do not enjoy parenting the entire world and do not
want to spend so much of our time battling each and every little tyrant
with a military uniform and a funny hat.
You don't 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.
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 overabundance of idiotic laws created
by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights."
If you agree, share this with a friend.
No, you don't have to, and nothing tragic will befall you
if you don't.
I just think it is about time common sense is allowed to flourish
-call it the age of reason revisited.
