“Actually they do, Joe. according to the Declaration of Independence clearly states that " that all men...are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life..." Rights endowed by the Creator trump any conferred by man.”

“That is not US law. You can't plead "inalienable right" in court.”

“The judge needs a lesson in comparative religions. Muslims worship the same God as Christians and Jews, and acknowledge Him as the Creator. Mohammed never claimed to be a God, a prophet of God. Unlike Christians, neither the Jewish nor Muslim faith acknowledges Jesus Christ as God but rather as a prophet.”

“The idea of her suing the victims is absurd. However, it would appear that there was contributory negligence on the part of the victims. If, as described they were riding abreast, not wearing reflective clothing, and on bikes without sufficient reflectors, they are not without some blame for what occurred.”

“So what's the difference between the way the countries of the British Commonwealth treat the royal family, and the way the various presidents (regardless of party affiliation), and their families are treated here in the USA?”

“With all due respect, Justice Roberts demonstrates naivete to the nth degree! Does he really believe that major political donations are made without any idea of a quid-pro-quo? If so, I think he needs to hear the proverbial story of a certain bridge being for sale!”

“We obviously can never agree with each other on the basic concept of where our rights come from. That doesn't mean we're right or wrong, just that we bring different interpretations to the discussion.”

GregCampNC on Mar 29, 2014 at 23:22:54

“False again. There's true and not true. Your view of rights allows all manner of violations.”

“Might want to check some law books, Supreme Court Decisions etc!. You do not have an "inalienable" right to yell fire in a crowded theater despite what the first amendment says, nor do you have the right to impose your religious beliefs or not on anyone, despite what the first amendment says, Despite what the second amendment says,you do not have an "inalienable" right to own a gun with no strings attached.”

GregCampNC on Mar 29, 2014 at 22:29:23

“You're simply wrong. You bring in that old "fire in a theater" cliche', even though I'm not obliged to leave my tongue or brain outside. But you're still neglecting the fact that courts rule on laws, while our rights come to us by being born.”

“You are making the all too common mistake of equating the rights granted in the Bill of Rights with the "inalienable" rights of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" enumerated in the Declaration of Independence. Like England, we have cameras for the specific purpose of recording criminal activity in businesses or on our streets. no indefinite detentions.....they go on here and in places like Guantanamo which we staff and pay for. The USA is a great country, but it is NOT Paradise!”

GregCampNC on Mar 29, 2014 at 19:20:06

“You're making the all too common mistake of believing that you know it all. All rights are inalienable. No rights are created by government.”

“FYI, the English are also a free people! The Bill of Rights grants us certain freedoms, but those freedoms are not without limit - they are NOT license to do whatever we please!”

GregCampNC on Mar 29, 2014 at 16:34:02

“The Bill of Rights grants nothing. That document recognizes rights that we already had. And if you think the English are free with all the cameras and indefinite detentions, you aren't aware of what's going on.”

“She should remember that the only reason she can hold elected office is because the "whiners" of old fought and won the right of said "whiners" to be treated as something other than chattel. The fight for true equality is far from over, and many of us are committed to continuing that fight. And, no, neither we nor our foremothers are or were whiners!”

“They key words here are "something she denies." So it doesn nothing to change my opinion. Even if it were true, unless she made a public scene, the unemployment numbers would be far higher than they are now if employers could fire someone just for using some cuss words!”

gino618 on Feb 21, 2014 at 23:51:40

“Given the number of times such stories have been exaggerated in recent times, and that no company could conceivably fire an employee for paying for something out of their own pocket, as this woman claims, I find her account rather doubtful.

And rudeness towards a co-worker / swearing / etc. don't have to be publicly done for someone to lose their job over it. I get the impression your belief in her is less about her, and more about your probable belief that McDonald's is some evil corporate enterprise you're happy to find fault with.”

“You should learn to go to different sources for the full story. HP is notorious for leaving out items from an original source in order to make their readers believe or feel a certain way.

From the original story: "At her next shift, after eight years of working for McDonald’s, Levia was fired. She says the reason given was she swore at a superior – something she denies." http://wivb.com/2014/02/18/mcdonalds-worker-fired-after-paying-for-food-donation/

“The proper corporate response would have been not to deny her request for help in the first place. The contributors should be reimbursed, restitution for any lost wages be made to Ms. Levia, and if she wants her job back, it should be given back with no strings attached!”

“Mr. Tedisco clearly does not understand the purpose of sending someone to prison. Yes, one purpose is punishment, but another is rehabilitation. Education plays a significant role in the latter. Since most in prison will eventually return to the outside world, they should be better prepared to deal with it than they were prior to incarceration.”
