Yeah true, would burn down my offroad tires too.

And in response to the lecture.

All forms of visual and vocal communication of information has to be interpreted in one way or another to be understood from one individual to another.

Logic is impossible to fix and is constantly changing as so does our language and as well as the variables the observer takes into account when receiving the information.

If my opposition uses strong biased logic, then I may do so in my defence.

If others don't accept my logic, well then that's my loss.

What the constitution means and says and how it is interpreted is how ever the observers accept those meanings to be.

I find it better for my will being if those I am discussing this to if they were to agree with me, so my argument no matter what my position will be biased in one form or another.

Driving is not a right...

But the process of becoming a licensed driver under realistic laws is a "right"...but that is an oxymoron in itself. I think that is what you meant.

The amount we get taxed is absurd with how much they waste.

I'm really pretty sure it -is- a privilege, because it can be taken away if it is abused.

Which, you know, unnecessarily huge gas guzzling cars are kind of abusing it.

A right is something everyone is born with- but not everyone was born with access to cars.

If it WERE a right, shouldn't more people be allowed to drive? There are so many poor people who'd love to get some government help with getting a car- but there's no foodstamp equivalent for a car.

No such thing..

As this is still a free country, (For the time being anyway..
) if I can afford it and want it, that makes it necessary for me..
