Odds are when you were in Public School you were not taught the definition of this very important word.
So here we go:
Not subject to sale or transfer; inseparable.
That which is inalienable cannot be bought, sold, or transferred from one individual to another. The personal rights to life and liberty guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States are inalienable. Similarly, various types of property are inalienable, such as rivers, streams, and highways.

I beg your pardon Justice Stevens, only as I’m polite, but the Second Amendment which is actually the Second Inalienable Right as listed in the Bill of Rights cannot be “Repealed”. The only reason it appears as an Amendment to the Constitution is for recording purposes. As you should know, Sir, there was a vociferous debate regarding the placement of them as Amendments rather than leaving them as a stand alone document for the very reason we are dealing with such idiocy today. Many of the Founding Fathers knew that the remaining Monarchists (about 30% of the population), most of whom had surrendered to the inevitable and thrown in with the ‘Federalists’, would continue to try to position these Inalienable Rights as Amendable by Man. The idea of one’s right being given to them by other men is the tenent of Monarchy as it is the foundation of Socialism/Communism. Without one man being able to force another man to do what he wants there would be no governing paradigm resembling the above. It is always about force, Mr. Stevens. Our Freedom rests on being able to resist it.
This is exactly why Free Speech and an Armed Populace is integral to a Free Society.
The Bill of Rights was debated down to its simplest form so Every Man could understand it, rich and Poor alike. Simple, Powerful and Direct. The Bill of Rights is the Maxim for Human Freedom.
It has been proven over and over throughout history and continues to be illustrated around the World.
The absence of an armed population, given enough time, always ends in Tyranny. We do not need to repeat the errors of the past which has demonstrably resulted in Oppression, Death and Destruction of Human life.
We should be past that here in the United States.
But, Mr. Stevens, thank you for your input. It’s important for us to remember that people like you still exist… and always will. It’s also important for all of us to recognize that such an oppressive mindset can rise to the highest levels of our government. We need to be vigilant and more careful.

…about Benghazi, Fast & Furious and North Korea having a Long Range Ballistic Missile yet? How about the impending doom of fiscal insolvency due to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare spending?
None of this rings a bell?
As long as you have forgotten then the current Administration doesn’t have to explain themselves to you.
Move on (.org)… nothing to see here.
Except banning guns… and getting rid of any modicum of fiscal responsibility like the debt limit, or spending cuts… and hate speech is on deck since we seem to be in the mood to ban stuff.
Seriously, stop paying attention to that which is reality based and surrounded by unpleasant facts. Stay focused on hypotheticals and only those issues whose proposed solutions would continue to erode your individual rights. Banning Guns, Banning Hate Speech, and increased levels of Domestic Surveillance… that should take care of the 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendments. We may want to park some soldiers in your house for a few days without your permission sometime in the near future just to fill in the gap. We’re working on that one… we’ll get back to you.
So remained focused on gun violence… but not in Chicago. And ignore the crime wave associated with mental illness and gangs… because it is actually the wheel… sorry, the gun’s fault.
It’s imperative we stay on the path of fiscal insolvency driven by a unanswerable, nebulous, government… with the best of intentions.
Keep your heads in the game here folks… spend, spend, spend… punish those who create jobs… and keep those wars going. Have you tried the “Rocky Mountain High”? You should… need a match?
This has been a public service announcement from George Soros and the DNC, those people who care more about you than you do… and are here to help.

Apparently it’s no longer a laugh line from Monty Python’s Holy Grail.
According to our Attorney General, Eric Holder, it’s “your duty” to retreat when threatened.
Your Duty… to Run Away.
[ dootee ]
- obligation: something that somebody is obliged to do for moral, legal, or religious reasons
[ thret ]
- declaration of intent to cause harm: the expression of an intention to cause harm or pain
- sign of something bad: an indication that something unpleasant or dangerous is going to happen
- somebody or something likely to cause harm: a person, animal, or thing likely to cause harm or pain
Please take a moment and think about this.
Our Attorney General, who is the legal mouthpiece for the President of the United States, has stated in no uncertain terms that you must retreat when threatened by anyone wishing to do you harm. And make no mistake… taking your stuff, threatening your well-being, or both, is “doing you harm”.
According to Mr. Holder, you are obligated to give that person, or persons, whatever they want if they demand it. Could be your Wedding Ring, could be your child, could be your body.
You have no right to protect yourself, or your property, if another individual is willing to harm you.
Sounds to me like it’s “Open Season” on all of us who are not inclined to break the law. Sounds like a Thug empowerment seminar. Sounds like pandering for the criminal vote.
The only legitimacy this idea enjoys is born out of the concept that we should leave such matters to the police (the government). It is a flawed idea.
I respect the police. It is a difficult and dangerous job.
However, the police are the SECOND line of defense against crime. They exist to catch criminals AFTER they have committed the crime… as it should be.
YOU are the FIRST line of defense… as it should be.
Why is this?
Because you do not… do not… do not… want to live in a country where there is a police officer on every corner. These places exist, and judging by the numbers, you don’t even choose to vacation there.
So, this leaves YOU. And surprisingly unknown to our current leaders, our country was designed that way. The responsibility to defend ourselves is integral to our freedom and liberty. In fact, our ability to defend ourselves, and our property, is considered an inalienable right. Does that phrase sound familiar? It should.
As you age, and pay attention, it becomes disconcerting when you realize the level of ignorance some of us find acceptable in our leaders.
Or is it ignorance?
Could it be they know exactly what they are saying?
If so, does that make you feel better?

The American Public is getting Dangerously Close to Connecting the Dots.
The American Press is doing their best to prevent this from happening… but the confluence of scandals is making it difficult.
The Latest argument being floated to defend the NSA’s Domestic Spying Scandal is basically “Trust the Government”. The defenders are out claiming they must have all of your personal records and digital communications in order to fight “terrorists”. They are almost to the point of yelling “the government would never use that information against you” unless they decide you are a terrorist.
Here’s the problem…
The Government up-armed Mexican Drug Cartels in order to attack the 2nd Amendment and open sale of firearms to citizen in the United States.
The Government fabricated a profoundly ridiculous story about a video to cover-up the truth about Al Qaeda Assassinating our Diplomat in Libya.
The Government used the power of the IRS to intimidate and destroy its political opposition.
The Government seized 100 AP reporters phone and e-mail records… intimidating their sources as well as the reporters directly through the knowledge they gained.
The Government seized 110 million Verizon customers phone records… and that’s just what we know so far.
The Government has a program with the ability to store every bit of information from every human being living in the United States… forever.
The Government has a program that utilizes Super-Computers to scan every e-mail, every phone call, every thing it can… and detects “patterns” that might indicate whatever they consider to be terroristic or subversive.
In totality… this is frightening.
And, this is just what we know to be true.
Until very recently, anyone who believed any one of these things was dismissed as a crazy conspiracy theorist donning an aluminum chapeau.
If the Press isn’t careful, the public might learn something and they’ll lose control.
If the Government isn’t careful, the public might unify in its opposition to it and these behaviors.
If the Socialists in both parties aren’t careful, the public might subscribe to the ideology this country was founded on.

…And Liberal Mayor Michael Bloomberg. – According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Long time Obama Supporter, Shannon Rogers-Guess-Richardson, attempted to kill President Obama and his Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg.
It is suspected she was attempting to frame her Husband, a Veteran and 2nd Amendment supporter.
The Democrat Actress has stated openly her desire to seek divorce from her third husband. According to her son, the Actress had become extremely careful not to consume food that was not “directly from the store to her hand”. Not an unreasonable precaution considering ricin was being produced in the home’s kitchen.

…Asks the Media.
-Yes. That is your Job.
But that would take forever! We would have to devote people to do nothing else! We can’t possibly check out every story and bit of news for its validity!
-It is your Job.
But some things we just know to be true… why should we waste our time and resources on verifying stories that we simply know to be accurate? That would be stupid!
-It is your Job.
If we took the time to do what you’re saying we are supposedly supposed to do we would never have a story out in a timely fashion… it would just take too long.
-It is your Job.
What’s the harm in running a story that makes you feel good, or not running one that doesn’t?
-If it’s not true, then it is a lie. Not running it is the same. Regardless of how it might make us feel. Truth… It is your Job.
You just need to trust us to know what’s fit for your consumption. We are Professionals.
YES! WE ARE! HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST WE’RE NOT!
-I’m suggesting exactly that. Are you doing your Job?
SCREW YOU! WE’RE NOT CHANGING, WE ARE DOING GREAT… YOUR THE ONE WITH A PROBLEM!
-What Problem is that?
YOU EXPECT US TO… TO… TO… YOU’RE A RACIST! OR, YOU MUST BE SOME KIND OF RIGHT WING NUT-JOB! PROBABLY HOMOPHOBIC!
-Hmm… I don’t think so. But if you think so you could research it and provide some credible proof. It is your Job.
YOU’RE A TERRORIST!
-Is this your Job?

Clearly we have an insanity problem here in the United States. Insane people are committing horrible acts of violence from drowning their children to shooting up schools. This madness must be stopped!
Are we going to simply accept this type of crazy violence as the norm?
Are we going to sit idly by and allow these people to continue victimizing the innocents when we have the power to stop them?
I propose we outlaw insanity and get these insane people off of the streets. Even if a very small number of these people commit such horrid acts removing all of them from society can only be considered beneficial.
If you have a Lunatic in your home, it’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt.
Some folks leave theirs loaded and lying around. Seems like a waste of alcohol…
I’ve even heard of people keeping Lunatics under their bed within easy reach of the children… unbelievable.
All of that “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” crap is so outdated, it’s over 200 years old for God’s sake. The founders lived in a world that could never have foreseen the level of insanity we have today. We need to change the founding documents or… get rid of them altogether. It’s about time.
What civilized purpose do crazy people serve? Sure, you can go visit that lunatic family member once a year or so but what “real” need do we have for them? You can’t protect your self with one… you can’t count on them assisting you in finding food if needed… they’re not even good for sport or entertainment. Well, other people’s crazy family can supply some level of entertainment, but would that really be missed and outweigh the general well-being of the world population?
So… Ban Lunatics! If not for everyone’s safety, do it for our children!
Call your Representative and demand legislation this year.
