[And:

  • Our governments should censor and ban religions in ways that honor the First Amendment.
  • The military should be housed in our private homes in ways that honor the Third Amendment.
  • The police should search and take money from random pedestrians in ways that honor the Fourth Amendment.
  • The police should beat confessions from suspects in ways that honor the Fifth Amendment.
  • Slave owners should treat their slaves in ways that honor the Thirteenth Amendment.

Brent buddy, You need to rethink things. Think about being gang raped in a way that honors your body then get back to me. It just doesn’t work that way.—Joe]

  1. Well sure; if it’s all about honor then it’s all perfectly OK. Good, even. We could enslave, demoralize and murder an entire civilization in a way that honors the principles of liberty and justice, and the right to life, liberty, and the the pursuit of happiness, and that would be a good thing– Balance, you see. Everybody gets a little bit of what they want. We get some lip service to principles, and the broken, thieving, murdering shitbags get everything else. It’s win, win.

    Actually when I first read the quote I assumed it was sarcasm from the pro liberty position.

  2. Obviously, they wish to honor them more in the breach than in the practise, just like sobriety at Elsinore in Hamlet.

  3. No, no, no. “Our government ought to censor and regulate and impose waiting and blackout periods as well as outright bans on some kinds of speech and on the press in such a way that those censorships and regulations, waiting periods, blackout periods and bans honor the First Amendment.”
    We already have Congress making “no law respecting the establishment of religion or the free exercise thereof, . . .or freedom of assembly”. Why should freedom of speech and freedom of the press get a pass on Congress’s lack of respect?

    And am I the only one who thinks this business reported by “journalists” in the “news” media about petitioning the White House and how “if there are more than X tens of thousands of signatures the White House has to consider it,” to be a mockery of the First Amendment’s protection of the right to petition the government? I don’t recall any such claptrap in law school or while the Evil Bush was in office.
