THE BILL OF NO
THE VICTIM GETS
THE MURDER CHARGE?
LAZY IRS WORKERS.
NO QUICK FIX FROM
REALLY GOOD REASONS TO BAN GUNS - HUMOR
AND YOU SAY WE
NEED SOCIALIZED MEDICINE?
THE BILL OF NO RIGHTS
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 descendants, hereby
try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for
the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other proponents of
socialism and or authoritarianism.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that many people are confused by
the Bill of Rights and apparently require a Bill of No 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
was based upon 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 dolts, and probably always will be.
ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free of 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 will achieve nothing more
than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.
ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free healthcare, regardless of
what Hillary thinks. That would be nice, but from the looks of public
housing, we're just not interested in public heath 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 won't have the right to big screen color TV or life of
ARTICLE VIII: 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.
ARTICLE IX: You don't have the right to a job. All of us want all of you
to have one, 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.
VICTIM GETS THE MURDER CHARGE? WHAT ABOUT THE PERPETRATOR WITH 47
now take you to the Bronx, New York. 54-year-old Victor Vicenty's
car was vandalized last week. So he sat up on Monday night with
binoculars and a rifle nearby, waiting for the vandal to come back.
At 2 a.m., Vicenty spotted a man trying to break into his car. He
grabbed the rifle, ran down from his third-floor apartment, and fired six
shots. The burglar is cooling on a slab.
As it turns out, the dead perpetrator was 41-year-old Kevin Bethea, a drug
addict who was notorious for breaking into cars. His rap sheet
included 47 (yes, forty-seven) arrests for petty crimes! So you can
bet there weren't many neighbors mourning Kevin Bethea.
Victor Vicenty has been charged with second-degree murder, reckless
endangerment, and criminal possession of an unlicensed rifle. His
neighbors have vowed to be character witnesses for him at his trial.
Is there anyone else out there who thinks Victor Vicenty deserves a medal
for removing Kevin Bethea from the gene pool? And what is wrong with
defending property? That car represents a part of Vicenty's life.
He spent a part of his life working to earn the money to pay for that car.
Why shouldn't he be allowed to use force to protect it from burglars?
The streets are a little safer, thanks to Victor Vicenty. It's a
shame that the powers that be in N.Y. don't see it that way. Put me
on the jury.
LAZY IRS WORKERS
do IRS workers do with their Internet access at work? They use it to
visit sex sites, gamble, trade stocks, participate in chat rooms, and do
other non-work-related things.
That's according to the Treasury Department's deputy inspector general,
Pamela Gardiner. She and her staff looked at the Internet usage of
more than 16,000 IRS employees and found that they spent more than half of
their time online doing personal business.
Bottom line: IRS employees are goofing off...on YOUR dime. That's
your taxpayer money that pays for those computer terminals, the Internet
access, and the chairs these IRS workers sit their butts on while they
give the country poor customer service. Remember, 37 percent of
taxpayers who called the IRS for information during this year's tax filing
season didn't get their calls answered, and those who did get a response
got wrong answers 47 percent of the time.
Add one more item to the list of reasons why we should get rid of the IRS.
QUICK FIX FROM BUSH?
hear this morning that President Bush is not going to propose any “quick
fixes” to the problem of steadily increasing gas prices.
He’s looking to long-term solutions from a sustainable national
No quick fixes? What
is Bush thinking? Doesn’t
he know that the people of this country expect the Imperial Federal
Government to step in with a solution – a quick fix – to each and
every problem that rises up to smite us in our daily lives?
That’s what government is for!
To solve our problems! We’re
supposed to be able to live our lives without ever having to address any
severe problems without the help of our wonderful friends in government.

with high gasoline prices! Cut
back on my cell phone usage to save money for gas? Are you nuts!
Combine trips? Why
should I be inconvenienced when government should be solving the problem?
of course, has it right. The
federal government doesn’t exist to step in every time an inconvenience
lands on America’s doorstep.

Hopefully it isn’t completely dead.
Really Good Reasons to Ban Guns By Bruce Gold
are used in self-defense over 2 million times a year.
However, this makes the attempted crime a
"non-event," which necessarily complicates the Police
investigation. Without civilian ownership of guns, these Police
investigations would not have been compromised. Civilians should leave
crime prevention to the Police who are properly equipped to
investigate following the crime's completion.
.004 % (4/1000 of 1%) of guns are used in crime each year.
This is way too high. All guns should be banned
are unnecessary. In 98% of civilian gun Defenses, no shot is
Fired. If you are not going to fire a shot, you clearly don't
need a gun. This proves that the guns are unnecessary.
Banning guns will prevent these unnecessary defenses.
cause criminal migration. In tough gun law Washington
[D.C.], violent crime rates are very high. This high crime rate
is caused by the migration of criminals from gun havens like Virginia.
This migration is caused by the criminal's cowardly avoidance of armed
householders and concealed carry civilians.
This criminal migration is detrimental to helpless unarmed
citizens in no gun areas and must be stopped. Guns should be
city gangs and drug dealers commit most gun crimes.
These relatively small and geographically restricted groups
consistently commit the majority of gun crimes, which usually peak as
turf wars erupt over Drug War changes. The best way to prevent
this is by denying guns to all law abiding people everywhere.
woman needs to protect herself from rape, assault or murder.
The Police will protect them by investigating the crime after
the fact. Remember,
Police paperwork is all the protection anyone really needs.
owners are disrespectful of authority. Good citizens should
completely rely on the authorities. A failure to do so is an
invariable sign of improper and overly independent attitudes.
Failure to completely and absolutely trust and depend on the
authorities is excessive democracy and sends a bad message to
owners engaging in self-defense are taking the law into their own
hands. This is
wrong. Only the Police and Criminals have the right to take
the law into their own hands. It should be kept out of the hands
and young people should remain ignorant about guns.
Real guns and real gun knowledge dissipates the fantasies
created by violent video games and TV. Ignorance once lost, can
never be restored and needs to be protected. Not to mention the lost
sales of all the violent movies, TV shows, video games, etc!
reduce people's reliance on the Police and Government. This fosters a
mistaken belief in "rights." No person has the right to
question authority. No person should be less then 100% dependent
on authority. This is fundamental to social order. Banning
guns will help to establish the Order the authorities want.
This is good.
YOU SAY WE NEED SOCIALIZED MEDICINE?
regulations are putting a strain on the medical profession.
A survey conducted by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons
shows that medical doctors nationwide are becoming disillusioned and
disenfranchised, thanks to more and more regulatory burdens placed on them
by the Imperial Federal Government.
Look at some of the poll's findings:
--66.2 percent of doctors said they will "retire from active patient
care at a younger age than they would have considered five years ago"
because of "increased government interference in the practice of
percent of doctors said decreased fees were a reason.
percent cited "decreased control" over medical practices"
as a reason to retire early.
percent said increased bureaucracy from Medicare was a reason.
percent said they were increasingly fearful of federal prosecution or
unwarranted investigation as the reason they were considering early
Does this sound like an industry that needs more government regulation?
Do we really need socialized medicine in this country if doctors already
feel overburdened by the system?
Look to our neighbors to the north if you want to see the reality of
socialized medicine. Emergency rooms nationwide are overcrowded.
Patients have died waiting for basic procedures we Americans take for
granted. According to author David Gratzer, who wrote a book on
Canada's failing health care system:
--The average American waits no more than 10 days for radiation therapy.
The average Canadian waits four times as long.
the U.S., you can get a MRI scan in about four days. In Canada,
you'll wait 150.
life expectancy for Canadians has actually decreased since 1978.
Women can expect to live 2.3 years less, and men 0.4 years less.
Life expectancies in other parts of the industrialized world have been
increasing steadily over the same period.
cuts by the Canadian government show little improvement. Under
nationalized health care, prices have jumped 33 percent in this decade
Medicare takes 21 cents out of every payroll dollar.
Is this what we need in America? Of course it is not. But that
won't stop people like Hitlary from trying to cram it down our throats.
