Quotes & Jokes Brilliant Phrases Two
Let's try one more time.
The following was written by State Representative Mitchell Kaye from Cobb County, GA.
We, the sensible people of America, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behaviour 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 were confused by the Bill of Rights and are so stupid that they require a "Bill of No Rights".
ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, computer or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally get them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.
ARTICLE 2: 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 point of view, etc., but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.
ARTICLE 3: You do not have the right to be free from injury. If you stick a knife in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives into millionaires.
ARTICLE 4: 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 subsidising generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.
ARTICLE 5: 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 health care.
ARTICLE 6: You do not have the right to physically injure other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim or murder someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.
ARTICLE 7: You do not have the right to the possessions of other people. If you steal, cheat or force 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 large TV or a life of leisure.
ARTICLE 8: You don't have the right to demand that our soldiers risk their lives in foreign wars to soothe your aching conscience. We despise oppressive governments and won't lift a finger to stop you from going to fight if you wish. However, we do not enjoy parenting the whole planet and do not want to spend so much of our time battling each and every tiny tyrant with an army uniform and a daft hat.
ARTICLE 9: You don't have the right to a job. All of us sure 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 educational training laid before you to make yourself useful.
ARTICLE 10: 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. . .
