How the Bill of Rights should read
The following has been attributed to State
Representative Mitchell Kaye from GA.
"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, guilt-ridden,
delusional and other liberal 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
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 ... and like the rest of us you need
to simply deal with it.
ARTICLE III: (I like this one!)
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
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, intentionally maim, or
kill someone, 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, pool tables, weight rooms or a life
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 part time jobs,
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,"
This is an English speaking country. We don't care
where you are from. We welcome you here. English is
our language and like the one you left behind, we
also have a culture. Learn it or go back to the
country and the living conditions you were fleeing.
