The musings of a politically incorrect dinosaur from a forgotten age where civility was the rule rather than the exception.
The key error in the graphic you posted is that the Constitution "gives" rights. Rights preexist the Constitution, as they are inherent to our nature as humans. Various Articles of, and Amendments to the Constitution do address the interaction between inherent rights and the federal government (and, with the incorporation doctrine of the 14th Amendment, the interaction between inherent rights and the governments of the several states), generally by stating explicit limits to the government's power to infringe upon inherent rights.Of course, we've all seen how well that's worked over the past few decades. By the way, I hope you don't mind if I use this comment to greet my anonymous (to me, anyway) NSA reader/dossier-compiler.... ;-)
Hey Aurictech; Yep Our rights preexist the Constitution, it is a natural law and also has been codified by English law that was around long before our Constitution. LOL, I have told people if they want to drive up their blog view, say something unkind about the current denizen in the white house or their favorite democrat politician and watch the organs of the state start looking at their blog for any "hate speech" or something.
I had to activate Verification because of the spammers piling up on my blog and now I had to block Anonymous users.
