THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR MEMES,
@SurgeonSean, this comment is gold, well done sir
@SurgeonSean, DECRIMINALIZATION OF THE DANK!
we can't collect rainwater?
@Captain Penis, not to use inside the house
@Captain Penis, not in the US! 'Murica. I believe it has something to do with the fact that if it isn't stored and treated properly it can become stagnant and toxic.
@Captain Penis, pro tip: do it anyways!
@Captain Penis, not in this economy
@Captain Penis, i do for my garden
@Darkblaze, I think this is what people don't understand about collecting water. It sits in containers, stagnates, and becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and insects. I heard somewhere that it also interferes with the level of water tables underground. Not a problem if one or two people collect rainwater, but if whole towns were doing it, it would cause trouble.
@Captain Penis, I am pretty sure this isn't about stagnant water and bacteria. It is most likely a reference to state laws on water. In Oregon, all water is publicly owned, which includes rainwater once it hits the ground. To have a reservoir you must get permission (Pay fees) from the State. Or risk fines and jail.
@Captain Penis, this all came about because a man in Oregon collected enough rainwater to create a pond he could then stock with fish to go fishing in. The ACTUALLY problem was that he didn't have the proper permits to have that kind of structure in his residential area, although it wasnt infringing on other property to my knowledge, and the town told him to remove it. He hired a lawyer, and the lawyer turned the case into a social rights issue.
@Captain Penis, you'd need a permit to wipe your ass nowadays
@Captain Penis, snopes it
@Captain Penis,I live in Oklahoma and you can store up to 10,000 gallons of rainwater but you have to have proper permits for the resievour. Not sure about anywhere else.
@Captain Penis, I thought it was about the Water War for a second. The Water War was when the government of one Spanish-speaking country privatised water and charged so much for it people were going broke to survive. People who worked as farmers had their rainwater ditches filled in by government workers and if they saw a pot of rainwater they would tip it over so you had to buy it. Eventually the people rebelled and got it back the way it was. If you want a better grip of it, watch a video on YouTube called 'Abuela Grillo'. It's an animation about it.
They can't take my gun at least
@Michael Fassbender, guns*
@Michael Fassbender, you only have 1? What a noob
@Michael Fassbender, Can't they?
@KeKesUHaulFacility , 2nd Amendment says that taking our guns is illegal.
@Dr Simon Acula, It only says you have a right to your guns if you're a part of a well regulated state militia. And those don't exist anymore, so if we're only going off of the second amendment then they could in theory. They wouldn't, though, it would cost way too much.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , the second amendment does not apply solely to militias, it only states that militias ate necessary to maintain the security of the state.
The latter part actually states that the rights of the "the people" to bear arms shall not be infringed. "The people" includes all citizens.
@Dr Simon Acula, I'm pretty sure that means you gotta be in a militia, they wouldn't just throw that in there
@KeKesUHaulFacility , they threw it in there to explain their reasoning, but not to be a requirement.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , you can try and take it, but you'll need to bring a lot of people
@Michael Fassbender, that's why it would be too expensive
@KeKesUHaulFacility , militias still exist
@Michael Fassbender, Where?
@KeKesUHaulFacility , they're mostly inactive but there was just a thing in one of the flyover states where a group of people took up arms and held their ground while making demands
@KeKesUHaulFacility , the entire reason behind being able to bear arms is incase the government becomes too powerful. Read some of George Washington's writings. Honestly one of our most pro "freedom" presidents
I think people believe "rights" are something different than they actually are.... for example, driving, smoking weed, hunting... not rights. Privacy, freedom of speech, those are rights.
@RogueKnight, who would downvote this? You're 100% correct.
@RogueKnight, shouldn't we be allowed to our decision? Every choice we make should be a right. Freedom of choice is the only quality American was built to have.
@ Officer Shaft, people who feel entitled. Let's see how many down votes that gets me. :-)
@Robert J MacCready, well then I have the right to chose to rape, pillage, and murder. That is my choice, right? I should be allowed. Our constitution, our declaration of independence make no mention of "freedom of choice". That is not an American quality. And if it were, I would choose to have the government pay me $100k a year for doing nothing productive.
@RogueKnight, take it easy, it isn't a right/freedom if it infringes on someone's else right/freedom. And it doesn't say Freedom of choice, it was implied. Don't be so hostile.
@RogueKnight, What are rights, according to you, then. Because by the definition furnished by those who coined the term, they sure as he'll are...
@Robert J MacCready, Seriously the governmwnt needs to stop infringing on our freedom and our rights. The other day i wanted to exceesise my freedom of choice and shoot my friend in the face but aperantly thats illegal. If i want to shoot someone in the face thats my choice and im sick and tired of the government infringing on my rights to do what ever the hell i want. Im gonna go pout about this on the internet and then make a meme about how the government wont let me shoot my friend in the face.
@Robert J MacCready, I have a right to have superpowers because it doesn't infringe on someone else?
@thejordan, Shame. You should rebel and shoot your friend in the face anyway. You're an American, you do what you want!
@RogueKnight, I assume you don't know about natural rights
@thejordan, I don't think you get how it works or you are being sarcastic. Either way I th
@Robert J MacCready, I'm not being hostile. Sorry if I cane off as a Trump supporter. :-) so if my right to free speech infringes on someone else's freedom of... well, anything... I lose my right to free speech?
@thejordan, I agree. Our government does too much, is too big. It gives them power over the people that the government should not have.
@thejordan, and for some reason I only saw the first line of your post. I agreed with you up to the end of your first sentence. I hope you are being sarcastic.
@EatMyAss, rights are outlined in the constitution, bill of rights, amendments.
@The Salty Bagel, I do. They gets violated with every abortion, for starters ... that doesn't make driving or using Meth a right because it makes you happy.
@RogueKnight, Yes but it would be hard to infringe on someone with free speech. Like you can burn your own flag but if you burn someone else's flag it still should be arson. I don't know I just don't want to be to told what I can and can't do.
@Robert J MacCready, to a point, I agree with you. But rules are a part of society. I think we have too many, but some are necessary.
@RogueKnight, A common misconception is that the constitution grants rights. It does not. A few rights have been enumerated in it, but the rights preexist the document. In fact all of the things you listed as non-right are rights; they simply aren't enumerated. This misconception is why there was opposition to having a bill of rights; the presence of enumerated rights diminishes those not enumerated, despite the clear language of the 9th amendment.
@RogueKnight, yeah im being sarcastic lol i thought it was obvious
@RogueKnight, more government involvement in our lives = less freedom. May not be rights every time, but if you don't care about giving away your freedoms just because they're not explicitly rights, then carry on, sir.
@RogueKnight, they keep using that word....I do not think it means what they think it means...
@RogueKnight, property rights... look the term up.
@RogueKnight, What was that about privacy? I don't think we have that.
@marinebiobry, not what I'm saying at all. I'm just saying people believe certain things are rights when they are not. As I have said a few times here, our gov't is too big and does too much. they are involved in things they have no business being involved in.
@Doctor Krieger, I'm not saying there are no other rights. Just that many people these days believe a lot of things are rights when they are not.
@RogueKnight, everything you mentioned to "not be a right" involved property rights... your definition of a "right" is clearly arbitrary. One has the right to make use of their property up to and excluding harm to others or to the property of others. One has the right to consume whatever they desire, as one owns their own body. One has the right to utilize their land as they see fit or to utilize the land of others' with consent.
@Doctor Krieger, any credible place I have found describing or defining property rights does not fall in line with what you are saying.
@RogueKnight, oh ok, agreed. Rights are limited. Privileges, on the other hand, are limited only by your desire and ability.
Really the hunting and fishing license isn't a bad thing. The money goes to management areas and state parks, at least it does in Florida. It helps keep the populations up so the hunting and fishing isn't harmful to the ecosystems.
@r3dn3ckf1sh3r, seatbelts aren't bad things either
Don't hunt/fish without a license, drink raw milk/rain water, travel without a passport, or not wear a seat belt. Those are stupid things to do, please do not do them.
@Sparks 1911, yes but being stupid isn't against the law nor should it be
@OREOspeedwagon, I mean sometimes it's got to be necessary. You wouldn't want our waters to be overfished and the forests and whatnot to be over hunted and foraged. It would wreck the environment for one and for two we would lose the resources. As for the milk thing I don't get it....people did it before, why not now?
@OREOspeedwagon, actually the law often takes a paternalistic role, because people love to do stupid stuff and hurt others or themselves
@Duke Of SamJax, I'm pretty sure that raw milk is teeming with bacteria, so drinking it is extremely dangerous.
@Sparks 1911, it is illegal to not wear a seat belt for a practical reason actually. When someone is in a car accident, the seat belt is one of the most important aspects of keeping that person safe by stopping them from being ejected from the vehicle where they would be away from other safety features. Now, if it was just a matter of whether or not you get hurt, it wouldn't be illegal, just like it's not illegal to injure yourself, but a car accident will often result in heavy bodily damage if you don't have a seat belt on. Enough so that you usually can't work for a while, which means you will have to collect disability payment from the government. Which is paid for by taxpayers. So now it's not just the injured person who pays for it, it's everyone else.
@tibby, sh!t. Fat fingered the reply button. XD
@tibby, I...I said people SHOULD wear seat belts...WHY ARE YOU YELLING AT ME?! *sobs*
@Sparks 1911, I know .
@Sparks 1911, I know, I hit your reply on accident trying to hit someone else's then I couldn't delete the comment. Sorry DX
Time for a new American Revolution
@HeadlessHampster, Mel Gibson needs to turn into the Patriot for that
Please tell me people don't actually complain about not being able to buy booze on Sundays. You got 6 friggin' days to plan ahead!
@TheKen42, you assume the days don't blend and fuzz together. I often don't know what day it is until I go to the liquor store and shake the doors in rage
@TheKen42, that has me confused, are there places you can't buy alcohol on Sunday?
@Sriracha, to be honest, I don't know. It may be a state level decision, and I do know of a few lichor stores that are closed Sundays
@Sriracha, can't in Utah, but my state is dumb.
@AbelFive, really? I wonder why that is still executed.
I'm in Michigan and we can buy alcohol whenever we damn well please.
Yeah but raw milk kills people
They'll never take our right to have a small amount of control over what everybody else in the country can say or do.
Can't take our right to wear blue face like a alienist
Puerto Rico basically.
Bernie Sanders in a nutshell
@4Chan Ambassador , Actually, it's both, see, it mentions weed and stuff. Both parties are bad.
Now this is scratching me where I itch!
We can't buy alcohol on a Sunday?
Who can't sell lemonade in front of their house? How else are 6 year olds supposed to make money in the summer to buy candy?
Where is it illegal to purchase alcohol on Sunday?
@Chris the Falcon, Massachusetts, unless something recently changed there. Except for right on the border. They actually considered changing it a few years back, but the guys that owned the liquor stores fought to keep it. If nobody is open, they don't lose much in sales, and everyone gets to stay home with their families. I totally get that.
@Toad, that makes sense i guess.
People are upset about being forced to wear a seatbelt? Seriously... It's for safety. Next you'll complain about sneeze guards at buffets.
You could be born as a peasant farmer and do that for your whole life and have your kids and all of their kids be peasant farmers for their lives if you'd prefer?
