The Bill of No Rights

THE BILL OF RIGHTS

**Attribution-who wrote this?

 

We hold these truths to be self-evident: That a whole lot of people were confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim that they require a Bill of Non Rights.

The Bill of NON Rights

ARTICLE I — You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV or any 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 the 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 generations 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 government run 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 TV or a life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIIIYou 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 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 over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

  1. So true….

  2. Yes, I know what a right is. It is important to distinguish (I think) between legal an natural rights. A natural right is an unalienable right-meaning it cannot be bought, sold or taken from you. All are born with certain inherent rights and I agree that life, liberty and property are fundamental. A right in one implies a duty in others….that others may not morally act to deprive you of it. In other words, it is immoral for another to deprive you of your life, liberty or property.

    Then you get into legal rights which is where things get murky for many and privileges which are not rights at all because they are granted to you by some authority. I don’t have the energy to go into all of that right now but I know this much, if someone is depriving me of life, liberty or property for any reason other that to stop me from doing harm to the fundamental rights of others then I take deep offense.

    Feel free to expound upon this if you have a mind to.
    p.s. We could argue forever about where rights come from but it seems simpler to agree that they are NOT granted by man which seems to me to be a critical point.

  3. I just felt obligated to answer. It is a very good question.
    However, I am unsure if I I got it right of not . :)

  4. You got it right AxXiom….

  5. Thank you. Just a little pat on the head and I’m good. :)

  6. Just another little pat on the head…

  7. Do I have the right to NO smart meter ?
    Do a little reading about it and you won’t want a smart meter either.

  8. That is the really burning question right there and one that should be easy to answer. Yes. But will you be allowed to decline? Doesn’t look that way. I am horrified by the things on every level and yeah. I agree.

  9. Papers Papers..The New Federal Drivers License Are Not For The Criminals, Terrorist They Do Not Need One…They Will Either Steal Another Fake License or A Terrorist Will Steal A Vehicle To Blow Up Something…
    With This New Law That Is A Violation Of All Americans 10th and 4th Amendment Rights Forced On Us By Congress…Meaning We The People Do Not Have The Right To Not Comply With The REAL ID ACT of 2005. Because We Are The Terrorist, We Are Under Careful Watch Of Big Brother…Even If It Means You Are An Outstanding Hard Working American…The United States of Russia Is Our New Government And Its Laws…REAL ID Technology RFID (RADIO Frequency Identification) is Not Secure…It can be scanned from 3 to 20 Ft Away….Then The Info Can Be Decrypted By a Criminal Hacker…The Programing On The RFID Was Written By Man, There fore Can Be Decrypted By Man…
    Information Being Stored On The RFID Chip, 1st last Name, DOB, SS# Medical Records Can Be Swiped Off…and Congress Did Not Put a Limit On What Info Can Be Stored On The RFID TAG…Things Like Your Pro Gun, Or Sexual Preference, Religion Credit History…This is just a tool for the Government Spy On Us…And With This Law In Place Puts All States as a Police State.

  10. Government – utility – corporations do not have the right to invade homes with wireless 2-way transmitters. They do not have the right to mandate that new appliances contain chips that can be turned on and off remotely with 2 way wireless transmitters. Normal rain poses no threat, but can be incredibly dangerous in heavy amounts. The same applies to electromagnetic fields and non ionizing pulse radiation. You simply cannot take the word of the CTIA (the wireless industry trade group) for granted when it states that “no research has found cell phones to be a danger to health.” They misinterpret and misrepresent certain studies while ignoring a large portion of the published research showing harm!
    SAY NO TO SMART METERS.

  11. I think that the Oklahoma Leg. need to be required to brush up and test before they can run for any kind of gov. posititon. It is obvious to me that some may have forgot or may be in need of a question and answer session.

  12. I like this,
    I spend most of my energy and time Ushering forward a Revolution in America..
    While Progress is Slow, coming across articles like this gives me hope that their are those here that speak thier mind, and reconize the natural rights which are given to us, I have found that describing a person natural right to them actually is effective, spreading a message of knowledge is better then spreading messages of fear.. moving aside from this topic, I would have to say the more americans that realize that thier mind is thiers and that others taking it away from them, the stronger our cause gets..

    The stronger our cause gets the stronger the common sense of the people will become in the United States and we can bring a new age of prosperity to the United States, which will an example for the rest of the Nations of the World..

    Bringing Change without force or military…
    Once again the United States will be spoken with pride.
    Our Pride.. This is Your Country..

    And its built for WE THE PEOPLE
