    No offense but just more petitions for Obama to wipe his behind with, and more names for the data base they are keeping. He will probably send you thank you notes.

    Who better than me? When is better than now? I'm ~#3000 on the pardon Snowden and ~#1000 demanding Obama resign.
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    I know that this, by itself, is unlikely to lead to a pardon, but it can be a catalyst for mass demonstrations after Obascum inevitably gives some worthless token response (which he has agreed to do for all petitions having > 100,000 signatures).

    By "thank you notes" are you referring to the signers being given a moral justification for killing JBT filth when the latter attempt to bring them to death camps as punishment for signing the petition?

    This stupidity again???

    Look at me! I started a petition on the White House site!
    Look at me! I signed a petition on the White House site!
    Look at me! I read a petition on the White House site!
    Look at me! I posted about a petition on the White House site!

    All four of those actions are unmitigated stupidity.

    I said nothing of the sort. I merely said that starting, signing, reading, or posting about a petition on the White House site are all incredibly moronic moves.

    It is dishonest to imply that I said I had a problem with the right that you quoted. However, I have come to expect dishonest tactics from you.

    Moving on.

    Snowden pardon petition at whitehouse.gov surpassed 100,000 signatures this mor

    It is worse than an online petition. It is on whitehouse.gov. Only a moron would think that Obama would look at any "petition" on that site that presents an opposing view as anything more than a list of people who bear watching.

    The phrase that was pedantically tossed about earlier refers to the ability to address the government about what you feel it is doing wrong. What we call a "petition" today is only one tool to which the phrase refers. The petition of which the phrase speaks could be a letter or a phone call from an individual.

    Calling a whitehouse.gov petition moronic is in no way a denial of the right to petition the government for redress of grievances. It is actually ignorant to think the phrase is specifically addressing what we, today, call a "petition."

    It is dishonest to accuse me of implying that you have a problem with the right that you quoted.

    My position is that you were denigrating a practice that the Constitution explicitly mentions, not that you oppose this right.

    A petition need not include multiple signatures. A petition can come from a single person.

    All the rest of the rights in the Bill of Rights (except state powers) are individual rights.

    As Ayn Rand wrote, (paraphrase) the smallest minority is a single person.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
