    Oh, I agree that Pete was wrong, and the "no brain" part was, ironically, kinda brainless.

    They absolutely do. In a state of nature the rights of others is irrelevant, all that matters is what you can do. It is only through forming a society...be it loosely knit or a formalized government...that we come to a point where we MUTURALLY AGREE to limit our own rights in the name of not infringing upon others.

    You have the right to protest against speech you don't like or disagree with but you don't have the right to have that speech or person silenced
    You absolutely do in the state of nature. You don't within a soceity IF the society agrees to limiting their own rights in such a fashion.

    In THIS country and society, we have laws dictating where our level of infringement of others rights through the use of our owns is not allowed.

    A business owner is perfeclty capable of acting on their right to assembly and right to their property to FIRE someone for their use of their right to speech, because you don't have a right to speech without CONSEQUENCE and you have no right to FORCE the business owner to continue to employ you, give you money, and be assembled with you.

    If the business owner attempt to cut out your vocal cords, or chop off your hands, or take some other action to permanently or sizable remove your capacity for speech, that'd be a problem. But removing an avenue for your speech that HE CHOOSE TO GIVE YOU, that he FINANCES, and that is his property is not keeping you from speaking freely...it just keeps you from utilizing his property and taking his property to give your speech.

    Yell "fire" in a crowded theater when there isn't one and let us know how that works out for you? All rights have limitations. Sorry.

    See, I can make non-sensical statements and posts that are nothing but strawmen (at best) and pure idiocy at worst.

    Where rights come from and "defending [me] in court" is about as relevant to each other as me stating my athletic ability is partially genetics and then yo uasking me who'd I rather coach me in football, Lambeua or my Great Great Grandfather.

    Ummm...you realize his post you quote acknowledged that right?

    The whole "doesn't give you the right to infringe on other persons rights and liberties" part?

    Did you actually read his post, or are you just on "liberal propoganda auto-pilot" where you imagine the words you think people say based on their lean and then fill in your standard response?

    you have the right to protest but you don't have the right to protest to have some one silenced. you cant use a right to violate some one elses rights

The Right knows they are Inherent Rights granted by our Creator and the Bill of Rights was to keep government from taking them away

    the Constitution isn't an enabling document is was written as a limiting document
    You don't have the right to be paid by somebody to say it. He is free to start his own paper and print whatever he wants, but there is no right to work for a newspaper.

    For example: You have the right to stand on a street corner and say whatever you want. You don't have a right to a TV show.

    I read it but his post doesn't actually say that, but you might mistakenly think it does. Yelling out something that isn't true doesn't "infringe" upon anyone's rights. If it did there would be no preachers.
