We, the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, deluded, and other liberal Bed-wetters.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim that they require a...

Bill Of *NO* Rights


You do *NOT* have the right
to a new car, big screen TV
or any other form of wealth.

More power to you if you can legally acquire them,
but no one is guaranteeing anything.

You do *NOT* have the right
to never be offended.

This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom
for everyone ~ not just you! You may leave the room, turn the
channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the world is
full of idiots, and probably always will be.

You do *NOT* have the right
to be free from harm.

If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more
careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you
and all your relatives independently wealthy.

You do *NOT* have the right
to free food and housing.

Americans are the most charitable people to be found,
and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are
quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after
generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve
nothing more than the creation of another generation
of professional couch potatoes.

You do *NOT* have the right
to free health care.

That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing,
we're just not interested in public health care.

You do *NOT* have the right
to harm other people.

If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill some one,
don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see
you fry in the electric chair.

You do *NOT* have the right
to the possessions of others.

If you rob, cheat or coerce away the goods or services of
other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together
and lock you away in a place where you STILL won't
have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

You do
*NOT* have the right
to demand that our children
risk their lives in foreign wars
to soothe your aching conscience

We hate oppressive governments and won't lift a finger
to stop you from going to fight if you'd like. However, we
do not enjoy parenting the entire world and do not want
to spend so much of our time battling each and every little
tyrant with a military uniform and a funny hat.

You do
*NOT* have the right
to a job.

All of us sure want all of you to have one, and will gladly
help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take
advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational
training laid before you to make yourself useful.


You do
*NOT* have the right
to happiness.

Being an American means that you have the right to *pursue*
happiness ~ which, by the way, is a lot easier if you are
unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic laws
created by those of you who were
confused by the Bill of Rights.


This is an English speaking country.
We don't care where you are from, English is our language. 
Learn English, or go back to wherever you came from!


You do not have the right to change
our country's history or heritage.

The United States of America was founded on the belief in one true God.  However, our people have fought and died to give you the constitutional freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all, with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, go back to wherever you came from!

He was getting old and paunchy and his hair was falling fast;
and he sat around the Legion telling stories of the past;
Of a war that he had fought in and the deeds that he had done.
In his exploits with his buddies, they were heroes everyone.

And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors his tales became a joke,
all his buddies listened, for they knew whereof he spoke.
But we'll hear his tales no longer for ol' Bob has passed away,
and the worlds a little poorer, for a soldier died today.

He won't be mourned by many, just his children and his wife;
for he lived an ordinary, very quiet sort of life.
He held a job and raised a family, quietly going his way;
and the world won't note his passing 'tho a soldier died today.

When politicians leave this earth their bodies lie in state;
while thousands note their passing and proclaim that they were great.
Papers tell of their life stories from the time that they were young;
but the passing of a soldier goes unnoticed and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution to the welfare of our land
some jerk who breaks his promise and cons his fellow man?
Or the ordinary fellow who in time of war and strife
goes off to serve his country and offers up his life?

The politician's stipend and the style in which he lives
are sometimes disproportionate to the service he gives.
While the ordinary soldier, who offered up his all,
is paid off with a medal And perhaps a pension, small.

It's so easy to forget them, For it is so long ago
that our Bob's and Jim's and Johnny's went to battle; but we know,
It was not the politicians with their compromise and ploys
who won for us the freedom that our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger with your enemies at hand
would you really want some cop-out with his ever waffling stand?
Or would you want a soldier who has sworn to defend his home,
his kin, and country and would fight until the end?

He was just a common soldier and his ranks are growing thin,
but his presence should remind us we may need his like again.
For when countries are in conflict then we find the soldier's part
is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor while he's here to hear the praise
then at least let's give him homage at the ending of his days.
Perhaps just a simple headline in the paper that might say:

Forever Heroes



Life is changed,
not taken away.
To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.
