Nice job ignoring the violent crime chart.
The difference is rather subtle in this case. The effectiveness of the document would be unchanged if it said "right" instead of power.
Article I Section 8:
"The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;"
That seems pretty clear to me... As to whether te expenses to be paid for are justified is a different matter...
I would think that the transition from Articles of Confederation to the U.S. Constitution was a rather major political change that happened through democratic means without widespread protests.
And we do, which is why we quarantine dangerous infectious disease carriers, to limit their rights and freedoms, in order that they don't harm others.
Where, pray tell, are our HIV colonies located? What about the hepatitis colonies? Where is the influenza ward in the hospital? (yes, the flu is deadly dangerous)
Oh, right. What you said is pretty much make-believe except for possibly some rare esoteric infections that few people acquire.
Bad coders can write bad code in any language.
There is nothing that requires that Perl code be write-only.
I can. Several members of my family are sole proprietors of small businesses. They buy television ads.
Really, local ads are not that expensive.
"It's a limitation on corporate speech."
Yeah! Because, you know, individuals can't buy television ads.
Why bother with that when MythTV is already quite capable of skipping the commercials entirely?
If you never see the commercials, there's quite literally nothing to see (or hear) here and it's very easy to move along.
"Yes, people huff gasoline, they huff the propellant from Cheeze Whiz."
Cheeze Whiz doesn't use propellant, it comes in a jar.
You might have been thinking about Easy Cheese, which does use a propellant, but it's a bit hard to get to it the way the can is designed, as the propellant is in a separate sealed chamber from the product.
Actually, it was the VERIFY command in the ProDOS BASIC.SYS that output the copyright message when no filename was given. In ProDOS, if a filename was given, it checked that the file existed, but did nothing else.
Apple DOS 3.3 and earlier read every sector in the file and would return an I/O error if it could not be read. Not specifying a file name resulted in an error.
There's a difference here. In your scenario there was violence and the subject was not given a choice.
In pregnancy, unless there was rape involved, the act of getting pregnant was the result of an action that was fully optional and therefore the consequence of pregnancy was 100% avoidable.
Obviously, nobody could possibly want one for the purposes of demonstrating their skills at poking holes in sheets of paper from a distance.
with the exception of hunting rifles, they exist for one purpose, to facilitate the most abhorrent crime there is.
Yeah, because there is nobody on this entire planet who might want to use one to test their skill at punching little holes in paper sheets from a distance.
Beyond that, ban everything but slow-shooting hunting rifles.
Most certainly you wouldn't want to try that with different kinds of firearms, in different positions, and at any sort of speed.
While we're at it, we should ban all forms of foot races except for marathons, because nobody should have any reason to participate any other kind of race.
