We, the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep
our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby
try one more time to ordain and establish some common-sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt-ridden, delusional, and other liberal
bedwetters. We hold these truths to be self-evident: that a whole lot of people were confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim that they require a
Bill of No Rights.
You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is
You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone -- not just you! You may leave
the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.
You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful. Do not expect the tool manufacturer
to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.
You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found and will gladly help anyone in need, but we
are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of
another generation of professional couch potatoes.
You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in health
You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, or intentionally maim or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest
of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.
You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised
if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won't have the right to a big-screen color TV or a life of leisure.
You don't have the right to demand that our children risk their lives in foreign wars to soothe your aching conscience. We hate oppressive governments
and won't lift a finger to stop you from going to fight if you'd like. However, we do not enjoy parenting the entire world and do not want to spend so
much of our time battling each and every little tyrant with a military uniform and a funny hat.
You don't have the right to a job. All of us sure want all of you to have one, and we will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to
take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.
You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to pursue happiness -- which, by the way, is a lot easier if
you are unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.
Written by Lewis Napper in 1993.
