    No it isn't. That idea is the fundamental principal of license, not liberty. Because at its basic level liberty recognizes that it operates within societal restraints and cultural norms.

    :no: Thomas Jefferson disagrees: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    That's the same Thomas Jefferson who not only owned other human beings but also bought and sold them about the same time he was writing that.

    Besides that's merely the preamble. Doesn't carry the force of law.

    I only referred to the preamble Kilometres. And no matter what you (and others) like to snidely think and sneer about, I generally always think about what I'm posting.

    Two (and yes, I know there were slightly more of some types of animal) is not sufficient to replenish a species without serious inbreeding. Though asexually reproducing species I'll grant you.

    Oddly enough, either of these explain you, but not the rest of humanity (I'm being generous).

    Technically, being attracted to 15 to 19 year olds isn't a pedophile, it's a hebephile. :async:

    Meanwhile, we have this gem from Moore's spokeswoman:

    "We need to make it clear there's a group of non-accusers that have not accused the judge of any sexual misconduct or anything illegal."

    That's right, the new moral standard for Republicans is "as long as he didn't rape literally everyone in the world, he's okay."

    "But, at least he's not a Democrat, right!?!?"

    Technically.......

    Roy Moore was a Democrat. Until 1992 when he switched to the Republican Party.

    He married his wife in 1985.

    Suddenly the Republicans saying "If we tolerate gay marriage, soon we'll have to tolerate pedophilia!" looks more like a threat than a warning about a slippery slope.

    technically pedophilia refers to pre-adolescents, there are two other words used for younger teens, and older teens respectively

    Moore's wife was married previously, thus Biblically both are currently ongoing practicing adulterers.

    also, the dates suggest the were dating before her divorce - but this is not necessary for the previous sentence to apply.

    No.
    However, since he repeatedly declares in absolute language "I did not know these women" it is proof positive that he is a liar.

    Which casts serious doubt on his other denials.

    With the election drawing ever closer, seems Doug Jones is appealing to black voters:

    I agree with you in spirit, but would lean against one point. Being created equal implies starting out equal, not ending up equal. Life is a series of actions and decisions. Actions can be ‘evil,’ and decisions have consequences.

    Just because he was promised inalienable rights to life, liberty, etc., doesn’t mean Charles Manson wasn’t (justly) robbed of this in his youth. Manson’s actions were a black-and-white example, but the justice system deals with the entire grayscale spectrum. Your rights are challenged the moment your actions infringe on another’s rights.

    My point is Dayton is technically correct in asserting that people are not ENTIRELY free to behave anyway they like. And I believe this is what he was intending to mean.

    Edit: never mind. Disregard all that. Maybe Dayton is just pissed and taking the bait on gender studies troll.
