    Hey all

    I just was cleaning out some old files and ran across this. Think you will enjoy.

    Subject: Bill of No Rights

    The following has apparently been attributed to State Representative
    Mitchell Kaye from GA. I hope this guy runs for President:

    "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 bedwetters. 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.

    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 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.

    ARTICLE III: 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 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 achieve nothing more than the
    creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

    ARTICLE V: 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.

    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 still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a 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 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 vocational
    training laid before you to make yourself useful.

    ARTICLE X: 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."

    We just think it is about time that common sense is allowed
    to flourish - call it the age of reason revisited.

    I used to have this Bill of No Rights posted on my office wall, but I lost it several years ago. Thanks for posting it, riderbob. It will go back up on my wall.

    At SouthernMoss' side forever!
    I lost my copy of this fine piece back in early 2000 when a hard drive went bad and Gateway replaced the computer not being able to retrieve any data. Glad to have it again and have not only sent it out to my mailing list but archived it in print as well as on a diskette.

    Thanks Bob.
