So, it is the second time around you can read? Had to let those emotions calm down a little bit first huh?
Funny how you're blaming me for your screw up. Like I said, it is difficult to read when use QUOTES the wrong way. I believe someone else posted
the same thing. It's a shame that you can't just say, "oops, my bad" or even nothing at all. You screw up and you try and blame me. Hopefully
you don't do this with everything in your life ???? Always somebody else's fault....not yours....
Cops coming to my house, my computer, my bank records and what ever else you had mentioned outside of being a checkpoint doesn't apply to the
situation we were speaking of, that was just you being emotional and acting out in a tantrum.
Not at all. You see those things would also be a violation of your Constitutional rights.
Of course you don't remember him carrying the constitution around, as he said, because that would make the situation a little odd.
Again, I never said he did, or didn't. I simply said I didn't remember that part. Let's just say he did. So what???? That is his right. Your
avatar is a little odd.....your responses are a little odd....does that mean it's ok to violate your Constitutional rights? cause you're a little
People don't carry bibles around to proclaim their rights so that is moot.
They carry the bible around to proclaim "something". Before dismissing the point as moot, you should at least understand it.
Officers carry Miranda rights around because that is part of their duty, so that point is moot.
you don't even realize what you just wrote
Ever think the preacher carries around the Constitution as part of his duty ? Every citizen has a duty to the Constitution. As you say, it's a
living document. So once again, your own words prove you're either not understanding what you're writing or you're just trying to inflame the
thread. My guess is the latter.
Adults work through things rationally
You should try it sometime
This is what separates the men from the boys, their behavior.
And understanding responsibility
What that cop did to that woman turns my stomach and the fact that men watched it happen...there is no excuse.
Then what are you arguing about?
You seem to agree that Constitutional violations are wrong and abuses of power in general are wrong. And, anyone who doesn't stand up to those
abuses, help fuel future abuses. Based on that, you should be supporting the preacher, not criticizing him.
There will be bad seeds in any field.
But don't you agree that, "bad seeds" in those fields where people are entrusted with massive amounts of power over others, are particularly
The person embezzling money is no better.
Although inexcusable, embezzling is a different kind of crime. It isn't a direct assault on another.
A person using pirated software is no better.
Although a crime and also not excusable, this is not on the same level as a Constitutional violation against an individual or an entire society.
A person using any advantage they have to directly or indirectly hurt someone else is just as brutal. Because I can see this, I can weight
right and wrong and not what is just good for me and my rights, but others equally.
But that is exactly how the Constitution was designed-to protect the individual and minority.
