If you ever want to understand why the US Bill of Rights was written the way it was, you can derive all of the individual rights it guarantees from these axioms:
1. Everyone has a right to life (which could be thought of as property, itself. Your body is your property, no one else's)
2. Everyone has a right to property
3. Everyone can do what they wish with their own life or property so long as they do not damage someone else's property, life, or rights without consent.

Ahahaha!! Ultrastar, welcome to No Agenda Social!! .. ..you come highly recommended by the squad and if you’re a pinko, that’s okay. Yukiame will be moderating your posts for the next week to make sure they’re up to snuff, so to speak.

The ongoing saga of my monitor continues. I finally got a refund for the one that the fedex driver stole (NB: it was extremely helpful having video cameras that show the delivery person never even attempted to deliver it)

When the atmosphere in the hospital my mother lay dying in became too stifling I left. As I did, she asked me to tell the nurse to give her more morphine.
You can’t get more real than that. The presence of her son gave her pain relief and when that relief disappeared she asked for another source of relief.
It was not beautiful. Death is raw and ugly and as this breaks us down, we resort to our most basic selfish survival instincts.
I chuckled at this but also found myself so grateful. There are people who count on this show to get through life, Adam, and I’m most certainly one. I’ll explain a bit & probably praise you gents ad nauseum on my next donation note, a sufficiently large sum to get a paragraph or so in.
TYFYC, both AC & @PhoneBoy for propagating the formula by (among many other things) providing these quotes.
