    If you think about that a little you might begin to understand how you keep digging yourself in deeper.
    Wait. Now we're talking about pollution? I don't disagree that polluting can result in victims.

    But as far as engaging in trade without a government-issued permission slip, who is the victim of the "crime" and what damage did the victim sustain to his person or property?

    Only if you want that kind of restaurant. If your decor and business model is set up for the afternoon tea club and the yuppies at happy hour then you're out of business, buddy.

    DOI, AND THE CONSTITUTION ITSELF.

    YOUR FAVORITE AMENDMENT...


    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


    this says right here.... that life, which is right, liberty which is a right, and property which is a right, shall not be deprived without due process of law.

    true, becuase the congress has not sought the proper roll of the constitution, to get legal power over them, by an amendment.

    The business is his property and so of course it falls under individual rights.

    Ummm..yeah. A place looking to attract yuppies is not going to be in a location that is desirable for a truck stop.

    A least I don't have to go down that dumb road with you. I've seen others who argue otherwise.

    There can be many victims or only a few, that's one reason for the license, to analyse the impact of a new business on other businesses and people in the area. The truck stop example was a case in point. A truck stop in the middle of a heavy pedestrian area with narrow streets and other non-transportation businesses creates many victims.

    In order to start a business I must sign a contract with the government that violates my rights. Are you saying people should not practice their right to start a business? That seems to defeat the purpose of a free society, don't you think?

    Your truck stop example resulted in no damage to anyone's person or property. There WERE no victims.
