Around Rocky Top

What The Rocky Top Brigade is talking about:

  • With a headline like this:

    Ford Praises Tax Increase and Says Uncle’s Indictment has “Helped” U.S. Senate Campaign

    I was understandably concerned.

  • Heh.
  • Barry asks What is a sin?
  • There’s a book entitled Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed.
  • Yesterday, Windows 95 turned 10 years old.
  • Kevin:

    And Roberts does not think the Constitution contains a right to privacy.

    Well, it doesn’t.

  • Insty links to more disenchanted Conservatives.
  • Map of freedom? Have they been paying attention?
  • Fred Phelps, in an attempt to out-dumbass even himself, plans on protesting at two funerals for fallen soldiers in Tennessee. The other Michael has more, as does Hobbsy Wobbsy.
  • Bob Krumm, who is not above a good dick joke, says don’t pick up poisonous snakes.
  • Carrot Porn?
  • Not sure where it is now, but I think one ran for president in 2000.
  • Blake reminds the police they are not the military.

      It’s carrot art you insensitive clod!

      [Kevin] And Roberts does not think the Constitution contains a right to privacy.
      [SayUncle] Well, it doesn’t.

      Doesn’t contain a right to buy or sell guns, either.

    3. SayUncle Says:

      I make a lot of mine.

    4. tgirsch Says:

      No right to buy or sell the parts, either. 🙂

    5. tgirsch Says:

      In fact, there’s no right to manufacture them, either.

    6. SayUncle Says:

      Yup, and no right to breath, have kids, buy a house, life, abortion, choice. But, you know, I’d say a few of those are still valid rights.

    7. Xrlq Says:

      I think a decent case can be made that whatever you have a right to do, the state must allow at least one reasonably feasible, legal way to do it. It could ban the purchase and sale of guns, but only if it wants to give us all guns for free.

      Yup, and no right to breath, have kids, buy a house, life, abortion, choice. But, you know, I’d say a few of those are still valid rights.

      Which is precisely Kevin’s point. Just because a right isn’t explicitly listed in the Constitution doesn’t mean that right isn’t protected by the Constitution. To pick on one of your pet rights, the right to buy a gun must be Constitutionally protected, because if it isn’t, then your Constitutional right to own one is meaningless and unenforceable.

      The same holds true with the right to privacy and the fourth amendment. The 4th makes no sense at all without the underlying assumption that individual privacy is to be valued and protected.

    9. SayUncle Says:

      Never said they weren’t protected. There is no assumption of privacy in the fourth.
