Ramon: Utopia is not an option. Compulsion should always be the last resort.
If you think vaccines are efficacious, vaccinate. If vaccines are efficacious, it does not matter if others do or do not get vaccinated.

This controversy is not really about the vaccine. It is about lost trust in the honesty of our government. It is hard to trust an entity that always resorts to force "for our own good."

Atheists Steal Rights From God

Notice that Turek, like so many other religious apologists, finds it necessary to misquote the D of C in support his unsupportable thesis. The D of C dose not read "the" Creator. It reads "their" Creator. The difference appears small in the minds of those with a religious agenda; they may even misquote it unconsciously. However, the word "the" contains specificity the framers consciously wanted to avoid.
In our republic it matters very little what the majority thinks on any issue. Individual rights trump any and all majoritarian musings. The relationship of a mother and her unquestionably human fetus is one of complete custodianship. The second a child is born the mother's custodial authority is reduced, and maternal authority continues to decline as the child progresses toward maturity or legal majority status. Maternal instinct is normally sufficient to protect the life of the unborn. However, sometimes personal consideration of life's exigencies overcome maternal instinct. When this happens, the rational decisions of the 100% custodian are the only ones that count. No one else, whether individual or group, can be lawfully endowed with power to interfere with such decisions.

The jury, not the court, not the state, is the final arbiter of what is or is not lawful. "I consider trial by jury as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution." --Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Paine, 1789. "It is left... to the juries, if they think the permanent judges are under any bias whatever in any cause, to take on themselves to judge the law as well as the fact. They never exercise this power but when they suspect partiality in the judges; and by the exercise of this power they have been the firmest bulwarks of English liberty." --Thomas Jefferson to Abbe Arnond, 1789. "If the question [before justices of the peace] relate to any point of public liberty, or if it be one of those in which the judges may be suspected of bias, the jury undertake to decide both law and fact." --Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia, 1782.

Common sense forces agreement with all of the opinions the Judge expresses in this article save one. The judge's opinion on the solution to the abortion issue is simplistic and ignores both the unalienable nature of rights and the impossibility of separating rights from responsibly.
It would be far better for us, if we paid them more as a reward for doing less. No one's property or money is safe when congress is in session.

DG, your assumptions, as assumptions often are, are wrong on every point. My objections are not personal. My objections are based upon principles: principles established over millennia through bitter human experience with abusive authority.
