Rights and Obligations

Everybody's talking about the implications of the Second Amendment on the idea that a right to a commodity means other people have to buy it for you (free M1A!), and the idea that you can be forced to purchase the thing you have a right to (M1As for antis!).

Me, I'm just pissed off I'm gonna have to buy a house so I can kick a soldier out of it.

  1. From the United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human Rights
    Article 25

    1. Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

    You have a right to housing - I suspect pretty soon you'll have your mortgage (and mine) wiped out by the Obama Administration.

    Of course, since the 3rd Amendment only protects you from having Soldiers living with you - you will not be able to object when the homeless family down the road is moved in or there are 4 homeless men taking over your 'spare' bedrooms.
