So it's not self-evident.
Except for a certain AirCav officer.
Sudafed has never cleared some overgrown weeds on my hemp farm either.
If you can find me a US legal document talking about rights you get from the creator, I'll be all eyes and ears. And agog, even.
I don't know what you have against using reason. If you think what you typed is a relevant response to what I posted, I suggest you be put in a zoo.
But for humor's sake: I would not support a ban on sodomy. I would support you being sterilized based on the evidence I have. You want to ask me more questions for fun, or would you like to discuss how rights are generated and/or grounded?
Sorry Comrade, I’m not really interested in debating whether the Founding Fathers were just being politically expedient.... I’m trying to parley a giant red paperclip into a Beverly Hills mansion via the Internet (is this a great country or what?).
Declaration of Independence.
So rights are "social constructs"? Does that mean society (meaning a majority thereof) can take rights away whenever they decide?
Is not a legal document.
Thanks for playing.
Your definition of "society" is completely at odds with its accepted definition, making this a curious debate.
You'd first be advised to understand that the United States never issued the Declaration of Independence. You'd be on equally sound grounds trying to justify your views on "rights" by the contacts to Sam Adams's failed brewing business.
Good luck parleying with office supplies. I can never seem to get a response out of them.
Why can't we do both? Your refusal to let me is a direct violation of my rights.
sounds like it's easier to get hold of crystal meth than sudafed.
Touché... parlay. French grammar smack is so sexy.
I knew this is what you'd come back with.
If you asked the Founding Fathers where "rights" come from, how do you think they'd respond.
And instead of questioning my definition of "society", why don't you answer the question.
That's what I tell my nephew when he presumptuously tells me that 2+2 is four. The nerve.
I don't really give a flying ******** what they'd say. Because we aren't governed by the Founding Fathers or the Declaration of Independence.
So the Declaration of Independence is meaningless, huh? Wow.
Anyway, 2 questions:
1. Where do rights come from?
2. Can "society" (whatever that word means to you) remove rights through the democratic or other processes?
3. If "society" decided to jail Lazio and Chelsea fans, would that be ok?
You seem to have confused the words "relevant" and "meaning". It has meaning. Its just completely irrelevant to the question of rights in a legal context.
Go ask chad. I was just telling you that your "mob rules" definition of society was addlepated.
Mob rules? What a laugh.
Um, he asked for an example of a legal document. You cited a document, just not a legal one. You're wrong on this one.
I believe the phrase they used was "inherent rights."
They're granted by social mores and values at any given moment, which are usually then put into law by elected representatives who then...you know what, do a search on the election process and read up.
Yes. They have before, and will again.
You mean does society always act correctly and morally? Of course, there's not a single example of amorality within any society in the history of the Earth. Not one.
Something tells me Matt started this thread for some reason other than his head cold.
Sudafed abused again.
C'mon, Matt, you know I need all the help I can get....
So now you tell me that lynching was neither correct nor moral?? Next I suppose you'll tell me slavery was wrong...
This is really putting a damper on my Confederate pride...
That [bolded] is patently incorrect. Every drug alters the way your brain functions.
Don't listen to Frontline. The media are as ignorant about meth as they were about crack.
