Re: para_dimz, -- Another confusion between liberty and license. Liberty requires responsibility.-- Yes, it does - towards the liberty of others, not towards your ideal of a virtuous life devoid of sin. You can't turn people into perfect beings by force of law, para - that's blasphemy. People do NOT have a responsibility to keep a life of righteousness according to your very own particular preference, which means: Mind Your Own Business - MYOB.
America is a much freer place than it was a few decades ago, and one way you can tell is that changes once considered unthinkable now occur almost unnoticed. A case in point came when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed a bill to legalize online gambling.

Atlantic City casinos, which now offer various games on site, will now be able to provide them to patrons at home or wherever else they have access to a computer. New Jerseyans will be able to play the slots without getting off the couch.

Doesn't sound like such a big deal, does it? But 40 years...
