Agreed. We already have laws against anti-social behavior while under the influence like drunk driving, or spouse or child abuse. All the drugs do is remove the inhibitions over underlying fundamental problems.

And the deterioration didn't take place all at once or overnight. The old boiling the frog trick. What the founders didn't do was build a mechanism for the total dissolution of the government into the Constitution. Amendments are great, and they divvied up who could make them among more than one group (See Mark Levin's, The Liberty Amendments.) But that's still pretty weak and subject to easy derailment. The only other existing mechanism is the one they took in the first place, The Declaration of Independence, and most lawyers and judges in this country will swear that's not a part of our legal system, even though our very existence is predicated on it.

More to the point, people with personal agendas not to the benefit of the nation as a whole managed to take control of the government, realizing that those who write the laws get to put the mealy-mouthed goodies in the bills to enrich themselves at the tax payers expense. Elections are a con-mans dream; which is why we have so many of them in Congress, and the worst of the worst sitting in the Oval Office.

I'm not quite ready, yet. And starting before you're ready is about as useful as standing on the Capital steps, pouring gasoline on yourself, and lighting yourself on fire. A useless death is just that, useless. Remember, the founders were guilty of conspiracy to commit treason long before they actually started organized armed resistance. Conspiracy to overthrow our tyrannical government is even harder with an NSA and other government organizations snooping even harder on domestic resistance than they are foreign terrorists. That's why stuff is happening overseas and we and those bozos in the White House don't find out about it until the papers put it on the front pages; the focus is on us, not our external enemies.

Bottom line is, if you don't at least engage in educated voting, you're not doing the minimum necessary to fix the problems. Seems to me the Judge is using the Socratic method to point out that even voting isn't very effective any more; and may be more a tool of oppression than an exercise of freedom.
You let someone shoot rockets from your back yard and you have the brainless audacity to complain when someone shoots back and blows your house up?
Yeah, but how effective will the French be in bringing any of those violent protesters to justice? On the other hand, France doesn't have a sensible 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Too bad Israel didn't target the broadcast booth while Hamdan was in it. Anyone else think this tool of Hamas is a lying sack of dog excrement? After all, you can't deny the Holocaust ever happened AND accuse Netenyahu of acting like Hitler. it's either one or the other, not both. But then nobody in Hamas as two functioning brain cells in the first place. Nothing but an instinct for senseless violence. I've got nothing against Palestinians; but Hamas should be hunted down and executed, every single one of them.

Defining Life

Life continues at conception. I'll even grant that human life continues at conception. What I won't agree with is that a human embryo or fetus is a human being. A human being requires a level of mental capability and functioning that doesn't usually exceed animal-level until well after birth. It's our minds that make us human, and our minds don't emerge from the cloud of pre-consciousness until we've absorbed and processed enough sensory data to begin making sense of the world around us and how to communicate beyond the level of hungry and ouch.

Actually, it IS the woman's body. The embryo, and later fetus, is a foreign growth. It's the decision of the woman as to whether she desires it to develop or to kill it and get rid of it. Feeling pain is irrelevant. Your brain has no pain receptors, but it's definitely part of your body.

Really? Then how do you explain Prof Williams being in charge of college classes and producing better informed and smarter thinking graduates? Race has very little to do with success and accomplishment; while culture makes a massive difference.
