    You think pollution isn't damage?


    If you think about that a little you might begin to understand how you keep digging yourself in deeper.

    government was not given authority over the people, at all, why do you believe government can dictate to people and over their property?

    is the EPA in the CONSTITUTION...NO!

    these government entities have no authority over the people...where in the constitution does it grant government powers, to control or tell the people what to do?

    government and the people only intersect, at the point of pirates, counterfeiters, and traitors.

    Yes, really. Business owners have the same right as everyone else.

    Btw, a restaurant wouldn't go out of business from a truck stop moving in next door, but experience more business as a result. Those dudes eat a lot.

    I was unaware you considered any contractual term to be "unjust"


    And if you did believe that to be the contract was "unjust" then why did you sign?

    Which still doesn't change the simple fact that Congress could have decided not to act on this clause. I'm pretty sure the Constitution does not insist that Congress act on all it's possible powers. Isn't that the same argument you (all) use in your attempt to kill the Post Office?

    The government can not make people sign a contract that forfeits their rights.

    You have yet to establish a base for any property rights.

    I'm sure all that information is available on line. Have at it. I'm not doing your homework for you.
