- As a disabled Navy Veteran, i could scream about any number of things, but I would rather concentrate on becoming what I want to be through a job and proper health care than worry about someones feelings being hurt or other mundane issues best attended after we address unemployment and our economy. But don't mind me, the VA screwed up my pain meds back in April and I am pretty messed up pain wise. I guess as a veteran I must continue to sacrifice for the good of minority issues, No wait, its 2012, we should not have any issues at all !May 28, 2012
- I don't mind you, I feel sorry for people like you, who think that voting yes to equality is somehow such a 'burden'. I would think every single day you spent in the Navy was more trying than voting to ensure everyone in this country is treated equally.May 28, 2012
- Jobs are not more important than basic rights. Think about it this way. Would you give up your right to vote, or cast away your freedom of religion so you can have a few more jobs?
To quote on of your beyond idolized set of founding fathers. Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both. Kinda states that liberty and rights are the most important for your country doesn't it?
A constitution is designed to protect minorities, and people from emtional idiots who vote with the Mob-mentality. If a county only cares about generating money and jobs, just Copy and Paste China onto North America.
It also pisses me off when people say "pursuit of happiness" as if a job that pays well will buy it for you... If you attack happiness as a "thing" or a "condition" you will never ever get it. It's a bloody state of mind that is a by-product of how you live your life.May 28, 2012
- Life is the first thing we have in rights, liberty the second and pursuit of happiness the third, but not of that matters if we cannot afford to live, to eat and have clean water, to raise our children and educate them. Everything you say is an illusion without a means to enjoy it. Americans have been fighting for those things for 200 years and once we have the freedoms, they are still an ilusion if we have no income, no quality of life, and without those, we can never pursue happiness.May 29, 2012
- You should probably stick to analyzing your own life, and not others, since you have absolutely no idea what it takes for other people to be happy.
Holding money above all else, doesn't equal quality of life, or happiness. It's usually a sign of shallow materialism.May 29, 2012
- Water, food, education, shelter. These are in abundance in North America. The ones who lack them are the ones who were failed by the social safety net, have a mental illness and have no where to provide the care they need etc.
Having a job which lets you own a new car every 5 years, take a vacation every year, buy your kids the latest threads, own that mototbike you've always wanted, let your wife renovate your kitchen... Those are NOT important, and are NOT part of the pursuit of happiness.May 29, 2012
