What rights does that person above have?
Do the folks just mentioned have a right to prey on others...
Do they have a right to not be resisted...
Where does the rights of that irresponsible person STOP?
(Hint... this is addressed in the founding documents)
What are my rights in a situation of being a victim of the person above?
Do I have to be their victim (by law)...
Am I allowed to use force to avoid being their victim...
If so... what force is acceptable...
And do my rights to avoid being a victim trump the rights of the perp attempting to commit a crime against me?
Will some govt organization protect me from being a victim...
(Again, these questions are addressed in the founding documents)
All good questions one might want to think about.
Today I need to go... promised a friend I would change his DWH (water heater)... not what I want to do today... however I do get heat and AC referrals from him and the DWH job does pay... :)
Have a great day guy!
