  •  Rights protected by money (16+ / 0-)

    Our civil rights are only gauranteed in so far as someone can make money from the exercise of that right.

    Your right to be free of government search and seizure: limited.

    Your right to be free of government phone tap: limited.

    Your right to petition your government in the streets for a redress of grievences: limited.

    Your right to jury trial or representation by an attorney:  limited.

    Your right to buy and use a gun: expanded.

    Of course, every time you buy a gun or shoot off some ammo, you are generating a profit for the gun industry.

    Who profits by not having your phones tapped or to have a jury trial?
