    i have ,many times, show me were you have a civil rights.......the constitution is clear it states ......privileges and natural rights.

    the 1964 civl rights act, is about discrimination.....there is no natural right...... to not be discriminated against.

    what part of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness do you find to be other than a natural right such that is instead a revocable privilege?

    life ,liberty and property are natural rights........civil rights are privileges created by government.

    the civl rights act states, discrimination cannot take place...... there is no such thing as a natural right to not be discriminated against...because if that were true, you would have a right to the labor of another person....and that is impossible.

    wrong, the civl right act is a written law....... positive law

    natural rights are negative law.....unwritten law

    the 1964 act states you cannot be discriminated against for age sex or race........it is impossible to have a a law stating a natural right to not be discriminated against, because it would violate natural law of rights.. itself.

    And if someone feels as you do about this breach of the fantasy world where these natural rights exist in a belief system- what do you do about it here in the real world where civil rights laws exist in written law for all to see?
