sprawl15: without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


I'm glad to see you support my right to open a strip club near a school or bars or any other type of entertainment venue that generally aren't allowed to be zoned in such areas.

ChimpMitten: And if that doesn't work, we move on to the Third Amendment, and refuse to allow soldiers to live in our houses until we get our way.


I think the 3rd ammendment doesn't get the love it deserves. It has basically been unquestioned and untested since it's inception.

Weaver95: fiscal conservatives and libertarians DO NOT CARE about gay marriage.


I take it that you've paid no attention to the Libertarian Party platform for the past decade or so?

Yes, I realize the difference between small "l" and big "L", but that's really just parsing words and No True Scotsman fallacies.

sprawl15: timujin: Ron Williams, a Libertarian candidate running in Mississippi's 4th congressional district, wrote that mayors like Chicago's Rahm Emanuel and Boston's Tom Menino should be removed from office "by whatever means is necessary."

Wait, what? Look, I get that the definition of "libertarian" is slippery at best, but, ferfuxake, that's not even close.

"Libertarian" is just another word for "asshole".


I'm guessing he's a Libertarian in the same way that Ron and Rand Paul are libertarians.

And by that I mean, they're ok with big, intrusive, abusive government as long as it's on a state level.

not really. The Libertarian Party states rights stance is not congruent with libertarian beliefs if it allows a state to legalize forced slavery or official government discrimination, for example.

You'd think a Libertarian, which is defined as being fiscally conservative and socially liberal, would support the rights of gays.
 
2012-08-02 04:22:15 PM  
"Let me make it clear, the CEO is being punished by government officials because he exercised his First Amendment right of free speech," Williams said in the letter, which the Sun Herald wrote about Wednesday. "The Constitution is very clear. When government restricts and punishes the people for exercising their First Amendment rights, then we are to default to the Second Amendment (right to keep and bear arms). These two mayors need to be introduced to the Second Amendment hurf durf oh god I am a big fan of cock and want someone to rape my face until there's more blood than tears ASAP."

Besides, as JT Ready has shown us you guys can't handle guns. You just hit two year olds and then your own face with the bullets.

Weaver95: if you want to be a libertarian, you have to side with the gays. way I see it, you just don't have any choice on this one. it's a simple matter of individual vs authoritarian organizations.


You are right, but for the stuff about Jesus earlier in the post, there are like three or four places where Jesus goes on about the law of Moses being his law and that marriage and guy and gal, etc. He just wasn't as old school as the Torah is, at least in the editing that's been handed down over the centuries.

Banning - or restricting - based on categorical functions is legal. You can say 'no adult entertainment within X of a school'. Those are not protected classes. They are denied permits/etc via due process, and are afforded equal protection. They can say, for example, no dining establishment can be placed within 100 feet of a public toilet.

Chik-Fil-A being banned from a city because of the personal opinions of the leadership doesn't do any of that. It simply calls out a specific business and denies them permits/etc 'just because'. It is not in accordance with any given law. That it's discrimination against both religion and general free speech also makes it discrimination against Federally protected classes.

That you even think these two are in the same ballpark means that you're either a barely functional moron or a particularly intelligent root vegetable.

Holy farking shiat.

When asked about his letter's comments, Williams told the Sun Herald that he was exaggerating and not advising "anybody to go shoot anybody."

When Scarface said "Say hello to my little friend," he really just wanted someone to say "Hello" to his gun. He wasn't about to shoot anybody. It was just the liberal director who edited it to look like he started shooting.

When he said introduced to the Second Amendment, he meant take a class at the local community college.

Guy A says X.
Mayor B threatens to block Guy A's company from doing business in his town because of X thereby punishing Guy A for exercising his right to speak his mind without fear of government reprisal.

It really couldn't be any more clear unless Mayor B had Guy A jailed for opposing gay marriage

Yes. Rohm is a hot head and spouted off. Again. It's in character. I think Chik-fil-A is run by bigots and I still agree he off-handedly stated an intent to violate the 1st.

That said, this guys still a terrible person and I am interested in his opinions on gay people's second amendment rights.

I agree with what you are saying, but was one of these restaurants actually trying to open in Boston or Chicago and denied a permit? If not, can't it be viewed that the mayors were using their first amendment freedoms in saying that Chik-Fil-A (I feel stupid just typing that name) is not welcome in their cities? Until their rights are actually violated I don't think there was any violation.

I suppose I could be wrong in that a representative of the government speaking in that function could be said to be speaking as the government and then that is then a violation, but if that is the case there are a whole lot of elected officials violating the rights of any number of religious, ethinic and other protected groups seemingly everyday.

It depends on which version you're reading. I seem to remember that the Gnostic version of the Bible omitted the Old Testament entirely, since it contradicted the teachings of Jesus on so many points.

I've meet three kinds of Libertarians in my life:
1: The male equivalent of the college political lesbian
2: The greedy bastard
3: The dishonest Republican racist/sexist shiatstain who tried to distance himself from the fail that was GW Bush.

It used to be just the first and second, but the vast majority of them now are in group 3, and they care very deeply about gay marriage.

No. What happened was the mayor of Boston wrote a public letter vaguely threatening to deny them a location in the city. He realized his mistake and apologized/retracted the letter.

Warlordtrooper is asserting that such an act is perfectly kosher. I'm saying it's not.
