Iraq “Bill of Rights”

Peenie Wallie sent me an email with his post about a draft of the Iraq “Bill of Rights”.  I finally got around to reading it this morning.  Yuck.  It’s not a “Bill of Rights”. It’s a list of things the government must provide–such as health care.  And it specifically says citizens may not own weapons except by permit.

It’s a draft.  It should be scrapped.  Rights are things that no government can give or take away–only infringe upon.  A Bill of Rights is a written promise to not infringe upon those rights.
