    I think the rule of law is more than enough legal position on the matter. Let us know when your case has been successful in the Supreme Court.

    More appeals to idiotic and irrelevant authority

    where has "we the people" been used to justify income redistribution by any legislative body?

    Its hilarious hearing someone that has claimed to be a "lawyer" calling the rule of law an irrelevant authority.

    Just provide the threads, post numbers and quotes and show me where this happened. Do that. Do it today. I challenge you to back this up with evidence.

    Seems to me that you are trying to hide your own faults and lack of substance by using the school yard "I know you are but what am I" when somebody correctly identifies your own posting style.

    But do please step up and support your silly charge.

    He believes in proper law, not the convoluted interpretest crap that a bunch of jackasses have been foisting on us.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Oh, I'm sure you'll go answer them now . . .

    In any case, you were referring to me as a "drive by." "My posting sytle," indeed.
