    Kimo, thanks, I like it. All licensing is, by definition, a noble privilege authorizing an otherwise illegal act. Those idiots, socialists, and otherwise slaves that think the more licences you have, the freer you are, knows NO ! ! ! principles of freedom, liberty, or individual sovereignty / inalienable rights.

    Freedom, liberty and individual sovereignty are not privileges granted by man, they are inalienable rights with which God has Endowed the unprivileged individual sovereign with.
