In almost forty years of law practice, I’ve noticed that whatever an individual American likes to do, is considered enshrined in the liberties of free people, a divinely sanctioned right, something the Founding Fathers revolted against tyranny over, and not to be subjected to the slightest infringement by the authorities.If this statement by the WSJ wasn't so laughably stupid, and were it not against Forum rules to go into the subject, I could quite easily rip it to shreds.
It's popular and pointless to bitch about this false equivalency here.
But if the American doesn’t like it, then it’s evil and ought to be outlawed everywhere, the same as cock fighting,,,and~~~~~
Reminds me of an old country song, but most things do:
I WANNA LIVE
The sport of cock fighting is centuries old. I never saw a cock fight before they were outlawed, but when I was very young my father went to buy a fox hound from a man whose wife said he was down on the Sac River at a coon on a log contest.
I can remember watching a raccoon on a log in the river, and hounds swimming out trying to drown the coon.
I started crying, afraid the coon would hurt the dogs, who were getting bloodied attempting to take the coon off the log.
My father explained that river families over in Cedar County had different ways than us, and we should judge not, lest we be judged.
Tolerance, is in grave danger in this nation.
