Deep Thoughts Pt2

Quote from Violet Leaves:

"Jacks (sic) 'cause' for pedophiles, sex offenders and their free speech rights is such a mystery...


What VL doesn't explain is how my 'cause' for the free speech rights of her and her friends fits into her conspiracy theory.

Haven't you ever heard of cafeteria constitutionality?

If not allow me to explain:

It is just like being in a cafeteria line where one picks and chooses which items of food they would like to eat.

Same concept, picking and choosing which parts of the Constitution are applicable to some but not all. Free speech fits some agendas but not others, especially where there is a conflict of thought.

I've not heard that term before but it's a very good analogy.

Unfortunately a lot of people really don't understand the concept of free speech and the crucial truth that the moment you deny one group their right because you don't like what they say, then you've effectively done away with the right altogether.

The problem with the "cafeteria" mentality is we've picked and chosen stuff which tasted great but was bad for us. Thus, Americans have fat heads to match their fat behinds, and like dieting, we look for quick fixes rather than good ol' diet and exercise (discipline and sacrifice). Any wonder why we're in such a pickle?
