“We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid 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 bed-wetters. 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 they require a Bill of Non-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 leisure.
ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, 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 IX: 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 over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.
ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We don’t care where you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from!
ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country’s history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase “IN GOD WE TRUST” is part of our heritage and history and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!!!!
“We think it’s about time common sense was allowed to flourish. Sensible people of the United States speak out because if you don’t, insensible people will.
If I knew who wrote the Bill of Non-Rights, I certainly couldn’t have made his 11 points as clearly and concisely as he has, I would have liked to invite him to join the fellowship of JudgeRight.
When people get angry enough, perhaps Congress will begin to change their evil ways. Yes, I said Congress is evil. I suspect most members of Congress are not individually designing evil to perpetrate on anybody but as a body, they are indeed perpetrating evil upon the citizenry. We are forced under threat of property seizure, money seizure, or even imprisonment to pay 1/3 our paychecks, and up to ½ all U.S. wealth in the form of property, sales, gift, inheritance, etc., taxes to a set of funds they control. There is any number of payees for these funds never authorized by the people they are meant to serve. They take that revenue and give it away to criminals in this land who are not even citizens of it. They give it away to international criminals who are threatening our country and its citizens, many of whom have acted on those threats. They squander these funds on pork bills, and kickback motivated contracts which entail $4000.00 ashtrays and the like.
Still, this remains the greatest nation on God’s green earth because its citizens are the most generous, the most motivated, the most productive, the most right purposed people on God’s green earth. We are individually giving more per capita than any other nation. We are producing more than any other nation. We are working as a unit to bring individual freedoms to other nations’ people. We are sacrificing more in wealth and blood for these freedoms than any other nation. While we have a large number of detractors both in and outside our borders, with whom we’ve made too many concessions, we are getting the job done. I prayed George Bush would win the presidency during both elections and I still thank God he won it both times, but I have serious complaints against the current immigration and foreign aid policies.
Our Swiss cheese borders are daily penetrated by thousands of illegal immigrants. We know nothing of who they are, where they are, or what they’re doing. There are so many of them from Mexico that they feel bold enough to carry the Mexican flag and proclaim that the South-Western states belong to Mexico. I have some questions for those who are stupid enough to wave a Mexican flag on U.S. soil and proclaim U.S. territory Mexican property.
If you are so proud of Mexico, why aren’t you there?
Didn’t you flee a corrupt government?
If so, why would you want to give control over this land to that corrupt government?
Now that you are here, what makes you think you deserve to be here?
Who told you, you were entitled to vote, free healthcare, work, buy property, squat claim American land? Whoever they are, they lied.
Do you think you have helped the cause of Mexican immigration?
Why won’t you go through appropriate channels to acquire legal status?
This last is directed at all ethnic groups who identify themselves as hyphenated-Americans, ie. Mexican-American, Afro-American, Russo-American, Cuban-American, Irish-American, Polish-American, Arab-American, Chinese-American, Slavic-American, etc., etc., Since the U.S. success is built on the Melting Pot principle, why do you maintain a separate culture within its society?
The racism that tears this country apart today was born out of the years of the travesty of and nation splitting war over slavery but it is presently perpetuated and exacerbated by this fracturing of American culture. The greater tragedy is the racially based sub cultures are doing greater damage to their own race by nine times that of all the race based crime perpetrated on them by other races. As for interracial murders, the statistics show that more blacks kill whites than whites kill blacks by a factor of 60 to 1. The figures for Mexican and White interracial murders or far less drastically spread but they are still very heavy on the White deaths by Mexican hands. Until we once again begin working toward one society, one culture for America, the statistics will continue to soar. Either integrate into this culture or take yours and go back to its source.
