(this is great -- I wish I had written it!! The following has been attributed to State Representative Mitchell Kaye from GA. This guy should run for President ...)


NEW PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION


'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. 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 came from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from!


Lastly

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!

Except "In god we trust" was not the official US motto until 1956, not 1791.

I trust in god to give foul diseases to me and my friends, to starve innocent children in Africa, inflict mudslides and earthquakes and tsunamis on folks in the poorest regions of the world, and other such loving gifts. If I trusted in god any more, I would spend all day hiding under my bed.

Interesting piece but not from the guy in Georgia. It was actually written by Libertarian Lewis Napper in 1993. Napper ran for US Senate in 2000 in Mississippi.

HIs analysis of Gilligan's Island is quite humorous. http://www.fightthebias.com/Resources/Humor/island.htm

And yes, I am often a vat of useless knowledge.

Holy Cow! We had this same discussion about Gilligans Island (and F Troop and a couple other of those type shows) after many beers back in college. Obviously it was not as thorough and complete and lucid as his analysis, but I think he was eavesdropping outside our apartment about 25 years ago!!!!! Heck, it sure beat studying for a biology or accounting exam!
