    And they somehow think they are able to tell us how we everyday citizens should take care of our own? What a joke!
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    Do not question the government overlords. They are infallible and this is quite obviously an attempt to mar their pristine image. /sarcasm

    They used the wrong kind of barbed wire. It's the barbed wire's fault.

    Can we sue the barbed wire manufacturer for this?

    You can't, but the Gov. can. If they win they would have to bail them out because they are to big to fail.

    <chuckle> His wasn't too bad.

    You know what they call that little wire handle on a gallon paint can? Yep. A bail. This is why the 8th Amendment prohibition against excessive bails caused me so much confusion.
    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.

    State government plot to enable more warrantless searches of the the homes in the Boston metro-plex...not that the locals would not gladly give up their individual rights voluntarily without prompting, gladly too.
