The following has been attributed to State Representative
Mitchell Kaye from GA. This guy should run for President one day...
"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
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
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
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 not 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! (lastly....) NOW..
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!!!!
