    A penetrating perspective of the frailities of human nature. After seeing the light, a legal scholar of antiquity wrote: "I have discovered this principle of life---that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong...Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death?"
     -- Ron, Decatur, GA     
    And perhaps one of our follies is the conviction that we have inalienable rights. Who decides what is inalienable, or even, what are our "rights"?
     -- John Spencer, Los Gatos, CA     
    The only true inalienable right is to make a fool of yourself. No one can stop us from doing that!
     -- helorat, Milton     
    They aren't supposed to shield us from anything but a rapacious government.
     -- Bob, Eugene, OR     
    What can we do when a person freely chooses to sign away his/her rights? Ultimately our freedom is defended by individuals when we refuse to indenture ourselves for benefits and privileges offered by the ruling class.
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    Well said Eric, well said.
     -- Eric Engstrom, Wichita, KS     
    Amen, brother Mike, and a hallelujah to boot. The government will always try to save us from ourselves. Of course that begs the question, who's going to save us from the government?
     -- Ken, Allyn, WA     
    What he said, I will echo, Amen!
     -- Warrdoc, Elk Grove,     
    Eric, just another great big thank you for all you work here ! ! !
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
     -- jim k, Austin      
    Eric, i firmly agree with Mike.
     -- jim k, Austin     
     -- Robert, Somewhere in Europe      
    Amen and Amen. The Amen for good are always watching also. Now let the follies brought about by corrupted officials and the afflictions endured, be the great reminder of the hill we have to climb together. Thank you, Mr. Schaub, for your tireless work, in support of the whole truth. Semper Fi
     -- Ronw13, Yachats Or
