In other news, it comes to my attention that peaceful people in possession of one thing, and other peaceful people in possession of another, have agreed to some sort of relationship whereby, the former serves the later in exchange for certain compensation and other liberties having to do with the possessions of the former. (You think you know where I’m going with this, but you don’t; and it wouldn’t matter anyway, because the principle is the same.)
That not a single other person in the world is necessarily involved with any of these people or their mutual business ought not be worth a mention in any "Land of the Free" (if it was), and certainly wouldn’t be in any land whose inhabitants generally possessed more than mush for brains (which it doesn’t). Nonetheless, we’ve come to the point where it must actually be pointed out to real, live, so-called "grow-up adults," that most affairs are simply none of their goddammed business.
Remington helped rally the 93-member Hawaii Bar Owners Association,
which filed a lawsuit in January against the state in a bid to overturn
the law. The legal action claims the government has violated their
private property rights.
Similar lawsuits have been brought in other states but not one has
succeeded, said Deborah Zysman, director of the Coalition for a Tobacco
A fine testament to the "Land of the Free," eh? "Not one has succeeded." In not one place in this "Great Country" has a court understood and recognized the moral principal that what peaceful people mutually and freely choose to do with their own lives and property in pursuit of their own values and happiness is the pure essence of freedom. In not one single place has it dawned upon "authorities" that it’s an insolent and outrageous insult to even think the word "free country" around any sort of public policy that does not recognize freedom first and foremost.
"We’re pretty confident that our law will stand," she said.
I like to remember and believe there was a day when issues involving conflict between people would be resolved based upon what was the right thing, upon a foundation of true freedom.
But of course she’s confident the "law will stand." Personally, I’m quite confident that the State can deal any sort of injustice it wants and ultimately be assured that after enough lobbying, enough major media blending of the mush-for-brains of the general population, enough political contributions, enough radio-shout-shows, enough emails proclaiming the virtual end of the world at the hands of the latest sensation, that anything’s possible.
Yay and Yippee! We can win! We can win! We won!
What a miserable world of pernicious busy-bodies I live in.
