Comment: Common law (Score 1) 934

We also get rights from nature (the right to protect ourself) or if you don't like that from English common law, which would include the right to self-defense. Or defence. Or some other British variant spelling

But the main point is not everything has to be explicitly in the Constitution for it to be a right.

Comment: 17 year pause (Score 2) 55

You take the 17 year pause in global warming and then you look at how many of those 97% of scientists predicted it, and then you come to the conclusion that maybe people don't know all the thousands of variables and calculations needed to be so certain. No need to consider orbital variations when you have actual data and predictions that didn't come true to work with.
