But I don't see how what you posted doesn't confirm what he has said and posted.

Good catch ... our rights exist because we exist, not because they are given.

I remember when conservatives would spew this type of boisterous, arrogant bilge non-stop. One day you'll get the same rude awakening they did. Even though I'm sure you've gotten it before, it appears you didn't learn much from it. Will you this time? Somehow, I doubt you will.

Billy forgot ... or maybe he never knew ... that the Constitution is designed to protect the minority from the majority ... and by minority, it's not just racially, but religous and ideological as well.

It's what happens when people become drunk with power, they think the majority believes as they do and those that don't simply don't matter because they just impede progress anyway. I've watched the evangelical crowd do it, and the leftists are doing it now. Hell, even slick Willy is warning them to be careful, and still they mash their foot down on the gas. Just sit back and wait for the impending crash... I just hope that given some of these guys' advanced years, they don't suffer a stroke when it happens. I'd sure miss all of their insightful contributions.

1. Find the Birmingham news. http://www.google.com/search?q=The+Birmingham+News

2. Search for 63 year old woman http://search.al.com/63+year+old+woman

3. Viola!....er....Voila! there it is. http://blog.al.com/spotnews/2012/10/...ot_intrud.html

Sheesh, I should not have to teach someone how to use Google.
Dang, so you are a professional attributer.

But OTOH, why should the reader have to go through a multi-step process to get to the source of your quote? I think the procedure you posted is intentionally annoying.
