“Rights”: Liberals Have Perverted the Meaning of the Word

152

This week, we once again celebrated Independence Day. For most, this is an occasion to watch fireworks, grill out, and enjoy a precious day off from work. A time to get together with friends and family and, with any luck, enjoy a beautiful summer day. Millions of Americans will go the entire day without giving a single thought to what it is we’re actually celebrating.

That sounds pious, so let’s immediately come down off the high horse. After all, the Fourth of July is a time to relish our independence, and it’s about more than simply breaking away from the British Empire 239 years ago. It’s about the principle that made the United States unique among all the countries of the world – not just in 1776, but from the beginning of recorded history. It’s about the rights of man – inalienable and God-given – and the freedom from an oppressive government. And included in those rights is the right not to spend the 4th studying the Declaration of Independence. Americans work too damn hard to have some snooty writer questioning how they spend their days off.

But since our rights are under constant attack these days, this week is as good a time as any to reflect on what those rights actually are. And that includes reflecting on what they are not.

Our rights are collected in the Amendments to the Constitution, but they aren’t there to remind individual Americans what they are and are not allowed to do. They are there, rather, to remind the federal government of its proper place. These are the rights our politicians are sworn to uphold, and these are the rights they are forbidden from trampling.

Nothing in life is absolute, of course, and the same goes for the Bill of Rights. Most of us agree that each of these rights comes with certain exceptions. Most of us realize that we don’t live in a black and white world. There are always going to be gray areas. That’s why we have courts.

Liberals, of course, have exploited these gray areas for all they’re worth. The dangers of their crusade against individual liberty have been well-documented.

Just as dangerous, though (and not nearly as well-documented), is their perversion and expansion of our rights into areas that are not in harmony with the country’s founding. The First Amendment guarantees the right to free speech, but it does not guarantee you the right to be published in the New York Times. The Second Amendment guarantees the right to bear arms, but it does not guarantee you the right to get a free gun from the federal government.

In addition to chipping away at our actual rights, the left has been busy trying to make us believe that our “rights” include things like: Access to abortion; free healthcare; a college education; a financially-secure retirement; etc.; etc.

An excellent test to see if a “right” is really viable is whether or not it forces someone else to provide it. You can’t have a legitimate “right” if, in order to exercise it, you must take someone else’s rights away. You can’t have a legitimate “right” if, by codifying that right into law, you actually increase people’s reliance on government.

Dependence is, after all, the very opposite of what we should be celebrating.

      and what you are is an idiot. Knives can kill to you stupid fuck……go live in Canada you left wing shitstick who loves the tyrannical government……

      1. gotabgood says

        Ok… bring your knife to a gun fight!!
        Here is the difference.. dumbass!!!
        22 Schoolchildren Stabbed in China on Same Day As Sandy Hook, But Very Different Coverage in American and Chinese News Media
        Just hours before 20 children were killed by a lone gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. last week, a man in China stabbed 22 children at a primary school in Henan Province.
        The main difference between the two attacks is that none of the Chinese children died, though several had severe cuts and severed fingers or ears.
        http://www.latinospost.com/articles/8436/20121220/22-schoolchildren-stabbed-china-same-day-sandy.htm
        (Can anyone tell me the difference between a gun and a knife and why one of them is more dangerous than the other.. and can you identify which one it is?)

        1. drunkenirish says

          You are a stupid fuck for sure… out in the west people need firearms because of wildlife having predators . For example mountain lions, bears and much more. The boat population is out of control because of the tyrannical government. You liberals don’t seem to get it do you. You’re living in a city where wild life is scared but out in the Midwest there’s nothing but desert. Hell, even the police force out in the Midwest recommend firearms for self defense. Not just predators but also criminals…

          1. gotabgood says

            You have such a line of BS… you definitely was born in the wrong century. You could have been a famous drunken Irish cowboy.. saving Old Tucson from bears…. hahahahaha… oh, you said Midwest… maybe Dodge City from mountain lions.
            Are you drunk?

          2. drunkenirish says

            No i am not drunk, liberal faggot. Mountain lions prey on people, they prey on children including infants who were just born that includes bears as well. Bears do the same thing. You mister city boy don’t seem to understand how life works, you think that pro-life is gonna save your ass. I hope a bear, lion or even a coyote comes around and bites your throat.

            Go ahead and say I’m wrong liberal faggot, mister pro-lifer who thinks he know everything about life and how it works. A liberal is a person who thinks he/she is safer without firearms and thinking that the predator wildlife will be friendly, that’s how a liberal thinks, as a survivalist they think the opposite. You on the other hand can’t seem to comprehend the real truth that you’re still licking and kissing King George III’s musty, moldy, dried up ass in his grave.

            What you liberals can’t seem to comprehend is the real truth, the real life, and the reality of what is really happening in America. Yet you liberals won’t be able to defend yourselves when Hitlery is elected. She will take away your rights and turn you into slaves. This country has fought for freedom before and it will do again, send you liberals right back into liberal land known as Canada where they are still butthurt from the Revolutionary War. To be honest you liberals are forcing the kids in school to learn about how Islam works, how to worship it and forcing them to become Muslim. You liberals can burn in HELL and I still wont give a damn about it. When shit hits the fan you better start begging for mercy because we right wingers wont show you NONE! TRUMP 2016!

          3. gotabgood says

            When shit hits the fan you better start begging for mercy because we right wingers wont show you NONE
            Well…. finally a piece crap lifted his head out of the cesspool you live in and told the truth…. hallelujah !
            With your attitude, you never got a honorable discharge… you probably got kicked out on a mental.
            and about your Jungle Book in the USA…

        2. kbfallon says

          I’ll tell you…. put a gun in one of your ears and a knife in the other –AND PUSH HARD WITH BOTH….which one is going to kill you first Einstein?

          1. gotabgood says

            Just because you have suicidal thoughts, you shouldn’t think everyone does .. get some help.
            it is a shame you don’t know which is the most dangerous.

        3. mac12sam12 says

          Question, was it an assault knife?

        4. Mathew Molk says

          Hey assbag.

          Let’s meet in Cleveland and test you theory. I’ll give you a gun and I’ll take a Barlow pocket knife. BTW, you want to be burred here or should I send your body somewhere else?

          1. gotabgood says

            OMG! Folks meet Molk the Rambo of Cleveland..
            I don’t want to hear of any mass shootings there… because RAMBO is there and on duty!!!!
            OOPS… where were you last year when this happened in your home town???
            7 injured in overnight drive-by shooting on Cleveland’s east side
            Even as a make-believe Rambo.. your OWN town is not safe… by the way.. they used a gun and not a knife..

        5. drunkenirish says

          You won’t know when I come up right behind you and slice your throat wide open liberal faggot…. Anybody who served in the Military branches can vouch for that tatic; since I am a 5 year War Vet, scrub

          1. gotabgood says

            I bet I watched that same Rambo movie.
            you are a wannabe! and as long as you keep tooting your own horn… you will always be a wannabe

    2. Bob says

      What planetre you from gotabgood? History has shown that if a society gives up ANY rights, governments with exploit that to take away more. You may not care for the NRA, but I hate feminism. I will not trample on your rights of feminist sleexh, so I kindly ask you not to trample on my right to keep and bear any weapon I choose. It is proven (look up stats at FBI.gov/trimesters/2014). Only 12% of crimes with guns are perpetrated by legal gun owners. Cars killed 13,425 people in 2014. Guns only killed 3,400. Should we ban cars also?

      1. gotabgood says

        There is so much wrong with your post hard to know where to begin… first your figures are wrong, There were, As of December 23, a total of 12,942 gun deaths. I understand that this year we will pass up the car deaths. But you bring up and interesting comparison between cars and guns.. good point!!
        Cars you have to go through drivers training.
        Need a license and it has to be renewed every few years and take a test!
        You need to have insurance to drive your car
        You also have to register your car EVERY year.
        I am for that.. are you?
        And then NRA does not protect you.. they are looking out for themselves only!
        If they were protecting you… where were they when lil’ bush put in DHS? Or the PA? Or the TSA?
        They got some law passed that ATF is not allowed to use a database to track guns and back ground checks and etc. They have to use paper… that is protection?

        1. mac12sam12 says

          60% of those gun related deaths were suicides. 85% of gun related homicides are gang related. We’ll keep our guns, you can call 911 for a prompt body bag delivery service.

        2. Mathew Molk says

          You say “We” will pass up car deaths?

          You one of the criminals that are killing people with guns.

          Hope the police drop one between your ears before you kill any body else, like one of us law abiding fire arm owners.

          BTW I’m with the NRA and they DO protect me.

          1. gotabgood says

            BTW I’m with the NRA and they DO protect me.
            Dreamer..
            They will drop you like a hot potato..

        3. Mathew Molk says

          OH one other thing.

          Just how do you intend to collect all these fire arms?

          Here is the general response from the average gun owner
          .
          “You can have mine right after I run out of bang and stop pounding your head to mush with the stock”.—

          You willing to go through anything like that then come ahead,,,,Oh, forgot something else. You will get someone else to get killed attempting to disarm the citizens of the USA. No doubt in my military mind you are a snubbing coward that expects the nanny state to do everything for you.

          1. gotabgood says

            I just knew it… a wannabe Rambo
            You’ll never know for sure, but maybe my name is Dr. Bruce Banner…. you won’t like me when I get mad…
            hahahahaha

  3. MAHB001 says

    The Alinsky Radical in the oval office and his gang are no doubt communists. They have been following agenda items created by communists designed to weaken America’s institutions of Family, Faith and patriotism…

    The entire list has been adopted by the elites that control both political parties.

    To Communists, liberty is something that needs to be rationed.

    “It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.”
    —–Lenin

    1. jimmy midnight says

      Somewhat ironically, Lenin was succeeded by Stalin, another one of your faves, Mr.Mad.

      He rationed liberty in a very stingy way.

      Our Ninth Amendment should be making our individual human rights supreme, and also restraining institutional behavior, and that of people exercising professional responsibilities.

      Are there specific goings-on that convince you that people like Lynch, Obama, HRC, whom I regard as very shaky-ass semi libs, are really communists? Or is it just about your feeling that every progressive step is another foot or so down the road to ruin? Oh! and I sure would like to see “the entire list,” so I could adopt it!

      Hope your summer’s going well.

      1. MAHB001 says

        Yesterday We the People lost the protection of rule of law. That alone should alert you to the rise of a dictatorship.

        The RULE of LAW does not exist anymore. 0bama and Hillary can do ANYTHING now, without fear of being held responsible. FOR ANYTHING…. They are above the law…

        If we continue down this path, we are headed toward a dictatorship and tyranny. Call it what you want, Communism, traitorous elite.

        My summer is going horrifically, Brown just passed 6 gun laws designed specifically to destroy the second amendment. California is a banana republic, that no longer follows the Constitution.

        1. John Doe says

          What I question is just how in the hell did MoonBeam get re-elected in the first place ? That’s one of the reasons I left California decades ago.

          1. MAHB001 says

            moonbeam was not elected, it was more a coronation. .. I do not think We the People actually elected him.

            Liberal Progressives control the MEDIA, and BOTH Political parties in CA. Nobody is controlling them, and they control who counts the votes.

            “It is enough
            that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes
            decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”

            —-Joseph Stalin

          2. John Doe says

            MAHB001, again, I tip my hat to you, since it’s been decades since I lived in CA, I wasn’t familiar with his coronation. You’re probably one of the most sensible people that jump in these forums, and with sound wisdom. It’s a daily war against the libs etc., one of my best friends that’s got his own site that he and his wife set libs straight on an almost daily basis. (Granted, it’s an endless job, with generally speaking no positive results). He-‘s in contact with many of some of the true patriots, some of which are well known, a certain woman from Alaska and others, congratulating him on trying his best to teach the constitution and the bill of rights to those of those that simply can’t understand, or constantly re-write them to fit the commie/socialist agenda. But again, my thanks to you for all your input.

          3. MAHB001 says

            Thank you for the wonderful words of encouragement.

          4. GodBlessRealAmerica! says

            God bless you too!

          5. Btty says

            Correct! Remember that b-tch Gloria Alred? She’s the one that got him elected and in a very underhanded way. Even Greta VanSustryn (sp?) who was a friend of Gloria Alred said: She wasn’t sure she could ever forgive her for what she did during the election for Moonbeam? She flat out lied about that so called Hispanic house keeper. California will never change and that’s why I intend to get the hell out of this chit hole ASAP! We’ve lost a lot of big business’s because they were being taxed to death. Ask Texas about that one!

          6. MAHB001 says

            I will leave as soon as I can as well…. But not until I lobby to have CA removed from the Union for not upholding the Constitution of the United States of America.

          7. Btty says

            God Bless you!

          8. MAHB001 says

            Thank you, and God Bless you too.

          9. GodBlessRealAmerica! says

            GOD BLESS YOU & REAL AMERICAN FIGHTERS FOR REAL AMERICA!!!!

          10. GodBlessRealAmerica! says

            I will help u remove Liberal communist California from the United States lets get a bill passed ..Jerry Brown will never sign it!

      2. MAHB001 says

        Do you think our Ninth Amendment is making our individual human rights supreme? And do you think it is restraining the 0bama’s institutional behavior?

        1. jimmy midnight says

          What I think is that the Ninth Amendment OUGHT TO make our human rights supreme. I find the discrepancy between that ideal, and our grubby ongoing American realities, a source of some amusement.

          The old song says, “Isn’t it strange how princesses and kings/ Do their comic dance in sawdust rings/ While common people like you and me/ Will be the builders of eternity.”

          You can and should enjoy the spectacle and allow it to add to the day-to-day joy of being on the right side of the sod.:-)

      Bullshit, I don’t join negative shit, they all need to be hung, with that suffering shoot them in places where they suffer more. leave them to die!!! Of course I should not say that because that is “GOD’S DUTY”!!!!!!!!

      1. Elaine says

        Sometimes, God uses messengers …. Who’s to say you’re not one?

      2. Gunflint Roseberg says

        Good !

  5. SouthernPatriot says

    Rights?

    We have the right to vote out the leftist Democrats who are ruining this nation.
    We have the right to not give Obama another 4 years for his policies or worse under Hillary.
    We have the right to pray that Almighty God will help us to restore the American Dream for our children and grandchildren.
    We have the right…or responsibility. Let’s get moving patriots!

    1. Susan Short says

      We have the “right,” but most Americans are too stupid to know better, and many of them have been bribed with the free stuff, so they don’t have to work! It will be very difficult for a Republican to ever get elected again, because this country has become totally pathetic! Trump, who is not a traditional GOP, may be the last chance to save this country from the impending doom that is coming. Most people have no clue what is happening, and is going to happen, sooner or later, and when it does you won’t want to be living in America any more!

      1. grafra102 says

        Susan I disagree with you in some parts, yes all the you know whats want the commies in ther for all their freebies, Trump will do it have faith..

    2. GodBlessRealAmerica! says

      VOTER FRAUD COMIN Watch out for these lying LIBERAL DEMOCRACKHEADS THUGS!!!

      1. kbfallon says

        And that is exactly what I fear coming after the fiasco with Miss Piggy wiggling her x large azz out of another cut and dried case of their treasonous acts . Obanana would like to just hand her the keys to the white house now–there’s no way he will let Trump win the election and give America back to Americans.

        1. Conservative says

          Obama has no intention of ‘turning the keys over to anyone”. He can’t get away with it with Trump but he will direct every move Hillary makes. He is staying in D.C because he hasn’t finished his scheme of ‘transforming America’. He absolutely loves the power too much and feels he is destined to ‘cut America down to size’ and Hillary and the Democrats will turn the reigns over to him. Too bad we will have to continue to see his ugly face…..we must get rid of the Clinton’s and Obamas!

          1. kbfallon says

            People told me “no way” when I was predicting this type of crap awhile back–and now they remind me of it when I say Unbelievable as it unfolds. Hard to imagine a president/leader wanting to make us more like the countries who strive to be like us……or used to. I guess this isn’t a bad dream–its reality. VOTE! EVERYONE PLEASE VOTE!

          2. Btty says

            And the Republicans are doing what? That’s right sitting on their thumbs and twirling while Rome burns!

          3. Bill Kay says

          4. Ornery1 says

            All you are doing is mocking people and you have no idea what theses people do in their city and state’s .I write my Congress man all the time he is a Republican like I have been all of my 51 years .My senators are boxer and Feinstein so I write hate mail to those sorry bitches.I tell them all the time they are disgrace to American people and their job is to uphold the Constitution. Plus I am well prepared for any kind of trouble or threat to my family or close friends from people or Government. So go away if you don’t have a good idea to help The real American people that love this country.

          5. Btty says

            Awww, I think the problem here is yours! This is still America Ornery and I can say whatever I want. If the truth hurts you then YOU go away. Frankly I think you need to take your meds because I said nothing to cause you to get your cage rattled and in turn cause you to get your back up! Frankly what people are you talking about that I mock? I mock stupidity and Liberals have more than enough of that. Tells something about you that you write hate mail to anyone. This is a forum where we can all speak how we are feeling. If that bothers you then you have a delete button. If you don’t know how to use it I’ll tell you. Find button on your keyboard that says delete. Then push it! There you go sweetie. Now you can get some rest.

          6. Ornery1 says

            Nobody likes to be patronize and when I said I write hate mail I was being sarcastic. I’m sorry you didn’t catch that maybe if I use pictures that would help ?? OK sweetie it been fun ornery1 out.

          7. Btty says

            Nobody does but frankly I don’t give a chit. As for pictures? Maybe you need them more than you think. 😉 over and out sweetie!

      2. MAHB001 says

        It has already started in CA… Hillary had crowds in the 100s at her rallies.. Bernie had thousands….

        How did Hillary win CA?

        1. Gunflint Roseberg says

          Who said she really did ? Legally…She had 100’s of followers, yet thousands of voters ? ……Numbers by illegal, deceased, foreign, alien, & the ones we can’t fix….
          …. American stupid people.

          1. MAHB001 says

            That is exactly what I was getting at…

    3. William Wheeler says

      Is there a God? If there is a God Hillary will not win!

    And the perverts identify themselves! Finally! Keep trying…your sewer slime is overflowing right back into your own cess pool states. Drink up Fools!

      WHAT A CUNT, A COMMUNIST, SCAN CUNT!!?

      1. Eleanore Whitaker says

        WHAT A WHITE, FAT GUT, FAT BRAINED, MIDDLE AGED RAMBO WANNBE PRICK!

        Thanks for proving you righties are all perverts. Now Prick Boy will put on his cammos, shave his fat head and make like Rambo with his AR-15 at the ready. Stick it up your stupid ASS.

      2. GREYGHOSTCSA says

        Michael, thank you for your service to our country. Unlike Eleanor, the unfortunate result of a misdirected vaginal discharge, there are those who do appreciate your time in the military. If you will accept my advice, do not waste your time in any exchange with her, she is too far down the path of Obama induced dementia.

        1. ABO says

          In the case of Eleanor Whitaker, I believe that misdirected discharge was anal, GREYGHOST.

      3. ABO says

        I think you are being far too charitable toward the vile, disgusting creature, Mike.

    2. Mathew Molk says

      And brain dead bitches like you will still be voting for the cackling witch even though Comley said she was guilty as sin. —- and then didn’t present the facts to the prosecutor.

      You make me sick!

      1. Eleanore Whitaker says

        For pricks like you who play with yourselves all day, that’s actually a comment. So prickpork…Here is what Comey said, “After a year of reviewing over 66,000 emails, we find no intent to commit a crime.”

        And from that you get that she’s guilty as sin? Is that because you know Hillary is a woman who wouldn’t look your way and would likely spit on you if you were lying bleeding in the street with your dick still flying like a flag.

        The only sickness here is a prick like you who can’t stand the idea of Hillary being president. But…eat your heart out. She WILL be president and if you pricks don’t shut those loser yaps, we may have to shut them the easy way…string you up by your dicks.

  7. Thomas Hocker says

    This is part of what they do deconstruct all that is good and right ,then pervert ideas words and absolutes.

  8. Michael Dennewitz says

    From this day forward, from this very moment forward, I WILL NO LONGER BE PROUD THAT I’M A VIETNAM VET. I WILL NEVER AGAIN TELL ANYONE THAT I AND THOUSANDS OF OTHERS FOUGHT FOR THIS ONCE GREAT COUNTRY. I’M actually hoping that I would die in just the next few months. THIS is not America any more. EVERYONE has sat on their asses and allowed a terrorist, communist faggot to destroy what USED TO BE the most wonderful country in the world. NOW IT IS NOTHING. .. ?

    1. Susan Short says

      I’m with you, Mike. Thank you for our service to our country, but we have an evil, crooked administration that does not care a bit about our military vets! You dumb shxt liberals who want to disagree with me, might want consider some FACTS like these. This pathetic country gives more money to illegals than it does to veterans! Also, in the 2012 election, there were hundreds of thousands of military votes that somehow never made it over here in time to be counted, and of course, most of those votes would have gone against Odumbo! For you dumb shxt liberals, who may want to question that, since you are clueless as to what is really going on, I’ve gotten that information from several members of the military, who all told me the same thing! The military knows the truth, and that is why the military is going to vote, overwhelmingly, for Trump, but the lame stream media will not tell you that! They will tell you that most of the blacks are voting for Hillary! Gee, what a surprise! Most people do not even consider that the president is commander-in-chief of the military, in voting for president. Hillary in charge of our military?! Are you kidding?! That will be a disaster, but how many people even know, or care?!

    4. Mathew Molk says

      Hey Mike, Welcome home, brother.

      Hey, we should be used to getting screwed. Remember how they called us Baby Killers and spit at us? Remember how we had to throw our own welcome home party in Cleveland?

      No matter what, You and I and the others like us and the guys that had to go to Korea as well as WWi and WWII and the people that went to the Mid East in the last several years all know what we did and how we will always love this country,,,,,even though the country never had all that much love for us we stood up for her when we were called. They can never take that away.

      Too bad nothing in the Lee Greenwood tune is true any more, though .

  9. Jeffrey Grimes says

    Good grief… IDIOTS TO MY LEFT, AND COWARDS TO MY RIGHT. It’s NO WONDER this country is going to shit! You “rights groups” do nothing but ask for money to fight the establishment, when you know that the REAL way to remove them is in chains by FORCE.

    What’s it going to take for those that are armed to RISE UP? To ACTUALLY MAKE SOME KIND OF DIFFERENCE OUTSIDE OF BEGGING FOR DONATIONS THROUGH EMAILS? TO CUT THE POLITICAL RHETORIC AND PUT THESE ASSHOLES IN THEIR PLACE, ONCE AND FOR ALL?

    The Founding Fathers did not fight solely through a political playground. If we want to see this country through, then we cannot be foolish enough to do just that.

    1. Bob says

      There is a Christian song by Mathew West named “Do Something”. But we (including myself) have be one so complacent wifh our own lives, we do not have time to fight for what is right. May s it is time we Patriots DO SOMETHING.

    2. Susan Short says

      What’s it going to take, you ask? What it will take will be for things to get so bad, and out of control, that people won’t even want to live in America any more! By that time, I’m afraid that it will be too late to do anything about it. I’m a senior citizen who frankly hopes that I don’t live long enough to see it happen! I just feel terrible for my grand kids, having to live in a country like what this is going to become!

    3. Mathew Molk says

      I’m with you all the way. but just how many of these loud mouths that SAY they will revolt will actually grab a weapon and risk getting shot in the face? Not everybody gets a trophy in combat, you know.

      There are not enough brave patriots to pull it off, not that we will not go down swinging, but the truth of the matter is we will be slaughtered.

      The rise and fall of the USA.

    Elect Hilary and finish destroying the nation.

    1. Susan Short says

      That’s exactly what will happen!

  12. Bob says

    If you look through hisfory, dictators like Odamit have tried to repress freedoms. Most recently, we can look at Nazi Germany. Hitler made everyone think he was going to save Germany’s economy. Hitler convinced Germans that it was in their best interest to give up their guns and freedom of speech. It was in their best interest to have the government interfere with every aspect of life and pay higher taxes. Give up their wealth for the good of the country. Sound familiar?

    1. Susan Short says

      Great analogy, Bob! You may recall the guy who used to sing the song to lead off the Monday night football broadcasts, who sang “are you ready for some football!” He compared Odumbo to Hitler, a few years ago, which he was right about, and you know what happened to him? He was no longer singing that song on Monday night! We’re rapidly becoming a communist country, but most people have no clue!

  13. Tinman Jones says

    They have turned rights in “wrongs”. Every Constitutional right is wrong under these creeps, and things that have always been socially/morally/ethically/spiritually wrong have been deemed rights. What sorry scabs the democrats are for churning out this sludge from the USA. America may never recover from the wounds they have inflicted on this nation. Romans 12:12 and hang on so God can revive this concept of a country!

    A precious day off..Millions of Americans will go the the whole day without a single thought what we are celebrating… is a little too close to categorizing on who actually DOES recognize what the hell we’re getting together to throwing some burgers on the grill for.. Of course i read the whole column.. I wonder if your representative who wrote this actually served.. and actually starts this column in agitation..? Though you are absolutely right, this should have been reworded toward those who do NOT recognize and support our armed services. And I will apologize for my agitation , for it was my first email on my list..

  16. Tiger says

    When I speak to Liberals they don’t accept any of my sources and call them biased and fake without ever understanding why I feel the same about theirs. Not many reporters on the Conservative side have been found out and out lying like the Liberal Main Media. There is no communicating with them, there is no debating with them, the Divide has grown so wide under O, going into the waters of Socialism/Communism that there is no coming together. We either keep our Republic or we lose it.

    I feel sure millions of Americans were stunned at the speech by the Director of the FBI actually damning Hillary then an ending that shocked us said no recommendation of prosecution. We have been slapped again and again these last few weeks. Now just now O’s administration, plans for America are Transparent. He told congress to pound sand, he didn’t answer to them concerning Benghazi, Lynch telling us to love terrorists, meeting openly with Billy, then Comey.

    We don’t have a president we have a Dictator pure and simple. The elections are rigged, it is easy to rig and pay off Delegates we saw that with Colorado and other states, we don’t vote a president in, we never did and we never will unless we tear this nation a new one come this next election and take our country back.

    Nobody, nobody but Trump is on our side.

    1. Elaine says

      Tiger, THAT is an outstanding comment!! You hit every nail squarely on the head. Kudos.

        Well thank you dear. I been fighting them long enough guess I finally got it. ;p

    2. GREYGHOSTCSA says

      Tiger, you are correct. Liberals live in their own universe and reject anything and everything that doesn’t fit their pre-conceived narrative. Prime example is Eleanor Whitaker. I gave her an example of three social justice warriors who are planning to disrupt the Republican convention in Cleveland, including their names, quotes and a link to their posting. Her response was to call me a liar and say I was making the whole thing up.

      1. Tiger says

        Yes that is what they do. Even with up in your face proof beyond a shadow of a doubt they doubt, poo poo an idea and scoff.

        Sorry you wasted your valuable time. When it comes to fruition then maybe she will believe.

    3. MAHB001 says

      Very powerful statement.

        Amen Thank you coming from you great compliment.

        We must rid ourselves from the very obvious enemy within then we may have a chance to win this war.

        As to Trump I only ask people to remember this, Black Hawk Down and remember how many hundreds of thousands of Somali O has brought into our country and how they now are showing themselves across our country for the savages they are.

        Trump will be an easy vote when you keep this in front of your mind.

    4. John Doe says

      I’ve watched the hearings today, which at this point hasn’t ended up with much of anything. The exceptions were Jason Chavetz, Trey Gowdy, Jim Jordan and others that brought up points. while all the libs were nothing more than a circling on the wagons around their corrupt candidate. I’m disgusted.

      1. Tiger says

        The liberals were disgusting but I caught a few things Comey said.
        1.) He admitted that anyone caught doing this in the FBI would face consequences.
        2.) He said seven agents interviewed her over the Holiday Week-end, she was not under Oath and he didn’t even talk to all of them. That spoke volumes.
        3.) When Chavetz asked about the FBI investigating her for lying under Oath to congress, which we now know for sure she did, Comey said congress would have to request it and Chavetz said you got it that recommendation will be there.
        4.) Also Comey was put on the hot seat concerning the lawyers who had no Secret Clearances and most likely there were Classified and Secret etc. among the emails, thousands he said 60,000 they destroyed to the point they can’t be retrieved. That was an eye opener.

        She is filthy and has no right running for president and somebody needs to take her out of this race and fast.

        1. John Doe says

          She’s should only have the rights to run for the closest sewer where she and Bill crawled out of unless it’s to a federal prison where she deserves to be, which is by far, preferable !

            LMAO amen.

    Your rights end where my rights begin, my rights end where your rights begin.
    No one has more rights than anyone else, unless, of course, obama says so.

  18. Albert L Biele says

    If you want to get rid of the suppression and the outright desecration of our constitution you have to totally halt the progressive anti-American democratic movement, reinstate a conservative majority in the Supreme Court to prevent liberal Judges from making new laws, that are in conflict with the constitution, and, most importantly, reestablish a government that is of, by, and for the people. With Trumps commitment to protect our borders, temporarily stop immigration of those who cannot be vetted, end Obamacare; negotiate with our trading partners to bring jobs back to the US, and to fill Supreme Court positions with Judges who will support our constitution. We can slowly bring our country back to prosperity, and the moral standards we had, before Satan inspired politicians screwed up the country. (Put the men back into the mens bathrooms). Choose wisely, this is our last chance to save America.

  19. grafra102 says

    This news about Hildabitch Killery I feel that was rigged too. That FBI asshole needs to be fired or resign..

      He should man up and fall on his SWORD, as he has absolutely no credibility and ruined what was a cut and dried case. Miss Piggy is riding around with Obanana on AF1 clinking their glasses and toasting each other at our expense.

  20. Susan Short says

    Susan Short is actually her husband since we have a joint e mail account. While I usually agree with him, I am not one to use nasty phrases to refer to politicians (even though they may deserve them). I am more moderate but still feel so sad for a country that my father fought so valiantly in WWII and Korea to be the last of all wars. He would be 96 now, and though I would be thrilled for him to still be around, know that if he was would be greatly saddened after all he went through (Captain Short) that our country has gone to hell. I love my children so much who are doing so much with their lives and hope that the country will regain our sanity so my grandchildren (future) will still experience the country we once lived in!

  21. GuardianFlame says

    Rights mean nothing unless each individual is educated enough to understand what “Rights” mean. We all know the general American public’s intelligence factor is lacking when a college graduate can’t even tell you how our Nation was formed…or WHY. so when a Liberal candidate smiles that winnong smile and “Promises” everything that Colkege graduate wants in life (just lies to make her sound good), the college grad grabs the brass ring and is hooked.

    We actually have a critical issue of education being subverted to the Liberal way of thinking, especially when American Govt/History classes are removed from our public schools. Our kids aren’t being taught what has made America great – they’ve been taught abt perversion (homosexuality) and insanity (transgenderism) as being the “norm”…they are not! Common Core is the most worthless form of teaching allowing teachers to approach these subjects as normal behaviors and completely forgetting the 3 Rs necessary for every day living.

    When you consider how our younger generations are being subverted from the truth, you can see how easily these same young adults can be led astray by the liberal propaganda machine, obama, hillary, etc.
    Unless Parents/Grandparents become involved in their young adult children’s lives, undoing the lies and propaganda filling their kid’s heads, the liberals will continue subverting innocent minds to the lies of their twisted ideologies for America.

    We can’t leave this to the govt because it is corrupted and subversive to our American way of life. If you truly LOVE your country and want a good successful life for your children/grandchildren, the duty will lie with you to inform them of the atrocities the liberals brlueve in and how those same lying liberals are cluelessly destroying our Proud Exceptional Nation. IT IS UP TO US PARENTS TO COMMUNICATE AGAINST THE LIES OF A FEW WHO WILL DESTROY THE LIVES OF MILLIONS! And we have THIS ELECTION to get it right!

    Once your young adult children “KNOW” what their GOD GIVEN RIGHTS are, they will see through all the smoke screens the libs blow so no one sees really what their true intentions are! This is the only thing left to save our Nation, educating our children about the lies used to subvert them into thinking liberals know what is best for our Nation. If that were really true, after almost 8 years of the most Liberal President in U.S. history, why is our Nation faltering on an abyss of destruction? Think about this…

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Trump is not a liberal, just an ignroant fool.
      You obiously have no idea what “common core” is actually about. I wish such action had been taken 40 years ago. As a military family, we had the “joys” of experiencing the school sustems in many states. Common core would have been a blessing.

      1. GuardianFlame says

        And OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE NOT A TEACHER!!! Ask any intelligent and caring teacher what they think about Common Core…go ahead ask them!!! They will tell you it’s the worst teaching system ever and that children aren’t learning anything and that the drop out rate is going up – especially in inner city schools – because this poorly thought out system frustrates kids, not encourages kids to learn more. IT IS NOTHING BUT TRASH MUMBLE JUMBLE THAT CONFUSES AND MAKES EVERY SIMPLE PROBLEM TURN INTO A MULTI-LAYERED DEFEAT FOR YOUNG KIDS. You don’t compound the learning system when teaching young children — that’s just stupid — unless you ARE TRYING TO CREATE GENERATIONS OF ILLITERATE ADULTS!

        Yes, I know exactly what C.C. is and no child should be exposed to this poison for a young inquisitive mind…no child.

        When you were a child was decades ago and teaching varied from state to state. Even you would be confused and frustrated at what the kids of today have to learn…nothing but nonsense info that is useless now and in the future. But THIS IS EXACTLY THE ACTIONS OF A SOCIALIST GOVT – keep the public dumb so they won’t question what the govt tells them…and obama is a Socialist. ..need I say more.

        I AM a teacher and I see the frustration and defeat on kid’s faces when a problem can’t be solved easily. Instead of encouraging children to want to learn more it defeats them. COMMOM CORE is the worst thing to hit our public schools and when Trump becomes President that’s one of the first things he is going to remove. And people wonder why our young adults are so ignorant…research “what” and “how” your children are being taught. DO NOT TRUST THIS SOCIALIST GOVT TO TEACH MORALS OR INTELLIGENT MEANINGFUL MATERIALS.

        Here’s a FYI for you: I’ve seen many teachers pass on students who should be held back because they are not understanding subjects. These students end up graduating and are no smarter than a 5th grader. Now do you get the picture? If you can’t teach the subject to a student, just pass the kid anyway and he/she is out of your hair. Quick fix for a poor teaching method but in the end, Society suffers as well as the poor ignorant adult.

        Hillary is just another extension of obama the fraud king. If Trump is defeated, we all know the corruption of this govt has gone deep and there will be no recourse except a Revolution. Don’t worry, you’ll never know what hit you as well as all the other braindead liberals. It will be over fast, and a new American govt will emerge. Yes, Americans are done with this corrupt and lost govt and we WILL change things if no candidate can.

  22. Alleged Comment says

    I think DP said it best what Christianity brings is SELF-CONTROL and a document that would enshrine that into a government that would basically endorse that principle – the Constitution.

    If you don’t have that Christian moral in you then you will get what one lady said on a radio show the other night was some old leader saying, you never get the government you want, you get the government YOU DESERVE!!

    wow what a great article. This reporters explains why we celebrate the fourth of July. I known it was to celebrate our independence from England. But when he explained the rights our founding father insured for us with the fourth make me think how much our founders put into our freedoms. This nation has made a lot of sacrifices for each of us to live free. I love this country and all it stand for the bad and the good. So if you do not believe in our bill of rights, there is one more right everyone has to leave America and move to a different country. So I stand with all who say God Bless America

  30. Robert Cruder says

    If rights were absolute and divinely dictated then why would one need a Constitution? Rights are whatever OTHER PEOPLE grant you. The article agrees that one’s rights end where other people’s rights begin

    This article praises the Constitution but also says “You can’t have a legitimate “right” if, by codifying that right into law, you actually increase people’s reliance on government.” That is only a slogan and is false.

    Individuals cannot fully protect a single “right”, even the right to life by themselves. EVERYONE relies on government for that final defense. By that, EVERY right is an additional reliance on government.

    When government provides that defense, IT, not you, must determine where each party’s rights begin. It must also levy a general tax to pay for that service.

    Only a child would demand a “right” without admitting to the rest.

    Washington, DC = Sodom & Gommorrah…

  32. joe says

    The simple fact is to be a liberal you must be a few things, first off stupid to just accept what ever the government tells you. The next thing is weak because they are too lazy to do any thing on their own they require a government to tell them how to live. They also must be easy to manipulate , some clown in Washington says something stupid that the average person with a bit of common sense would at the very least research but the liberal just says OK you are government you are smarter than me I will obey. The other big thing is the ability to lie like no tomorrow ,confront a liberal with a fact they can not deny they will make up a lie or use a lie they learned from another liberal. They have no grasp on reality they all think we can turn this country into some sort of la la land and that is a child like thought. The schools are turning out these spineless jellyfish like creatures by the thousands, worried about insane things like trigger words and safe spaces ,I laugh at these things but in the end it is not funny because these lame excuses for human beings are the future of this country, we are in serious trouble. If the country is to be destroyed it will be by the likes of these weak mindless lemmings ,they are like sheep on the way to slaughter oblivious of reality or the world around them. Also it is only what they think and want that matters, every one else is wrong and a racist or homophobe or what ever new words they have made up today. These people are being brainwashed by big government and because they are cowards and weak minded they are perfect targets for big government to turn into mindless puppets.

  33. Morton212 says

    “The Second Amendment guarantees the right to bear arms, but it does not guarantee you the right to get a free gun from the federal government”

    I agree totally. And nor does it permit fellow citizens to take away my freedom by becoming an intolerable danger to myself and others.

    So then you have to face a dichotomy: while most citizens would like to think that they handle their weapons judiciously and safely. – how do you ensure that they do – bearing in mind that there is an extremely high level of gun accidents and violence ? What is missing is some kind of oversight of gun owners – to ensure that they can handle weapons competently. Otherwise = as the article says : ‘You can’t have a legitimate “right” if, in order to exercise it, you must take someone else’s rights away.

    1. joe says

      All your so called facts are once again flat out lies or just wrong it is none of your damn business what I do with my weapons PERIOD!! who the hell ever asked for free weapons wow you are really a moron.I was born with the right to own it it was not given to me by the government nor can it be taken away. My right to own and carry far supersedes any right or delusional fears of that weapon that you have. You need to mind your own business and worry about yourself you have nothing to fear from law abiding citizens, well not till you try to take our guns at least. You need to just shut your piehole, all you ever do is spread lies and misinformation like all lying weak minded liberals. You have zero knowledge of the facts you refuse to accept reality you just spew twaddle. You change your damn name and picture all the time likely because you were kicked out of here. Let me be clear YOU DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO DO OR SAY A DAMN THING ABOUT GUN OWNERSHIP. Your opinion is meaningless so keep it to yourself and quit making up fake profiles so you can come back in here you are a sick little man very sick and you need professional assistance. You are a mindless puppet and guess what junior MY RIGHTS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOURS

      1. Morton212 says

        You are exactly the sort of person that sounds unstable and makes me worry that you may have weapons. My post repeated exactly what the lead artcle said.

      Get a PC 415 (1) misdemeanor Unlawfully fight in a public place
      or challenge another person in a public place to fight

      BUT BREAK THE LAW like Hillary did and no charges are filled, NOT even a Misdemeanor

      1. Morton212 says

        If you bothered to listen to the Director of the FBI – a Republican – testifying to the Congressional sub-committee – you would have learned that she did not commit a crime; and consequently it would be a waste of taxpayer money to charge her with one because it would not result in a prosecution.

      I don’t know where you would go because there is no nation on the planet that does not demand and take that right, the right to tax – nor has there ever been.

    The Neo-Liberal concept of “Rights” is best summarized as “McRights”. They treat “rights” as being no different from receiving customer service from the U.S. government. This is why they think that, for them, a new right to something that they want is merely an expression of outrage and a protest away.

    This is a very good article with very clear expression of the value of our rights. However, I take exception to one aspect of it, and I urge everyone to give this careful thought. For some time I’ve been careful to distinguish between the term “liberal” and the more proper term “left-wing fanatic.” Think about it, please. Liberal is derived from “liberty,” and that is an important consideration. A true liberal understands the clear connection between liberty and personal responsibility (the latter often equated with conservatism). Let’s all make a conscious effort to call a spade a spade. These anti-American creeps like Obama, Clinton, and Sanders are NOT liberals: they are “left-wing fanatics,” or if you prefer “left-wing extremists.”
