    This is probably the best e-mail I've seen in a long, long time.
    The following has been attributed to State Representative
    Mitchell Kaye from GA. This guy should run for President one

    "We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to
    help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice,
    avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive
    behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to
    ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try
    one more time to ordain and establish some common sense
    guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional,
    and other liberal bed-wetters. We hold these truths to be self
    evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of
    Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights."

    ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen
    TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can
    legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

    ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This
    country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone
    -- not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel,
    express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of
    idiots, and probably always will be.

    ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If
    you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful;
    do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your
    relatives independently wealthy.

    ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing.
    Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will
    gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of
    subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch
    potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another
    generation of professional couch potatoes . (This one is my pet
    peeve...get an education and go to work....don't expect everyone
    else to take care of you!)

    ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That
    would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just
    not interested in public health care.

    ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other
    people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill
    someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you
    fry in the electric chair.

    ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of
    others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services
    of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get
    together and lock you away in a place where you still won't have
    the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

    ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure
    want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard
    times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities
    of education and vocational training laid before you to make
    yourself useful. (AMEN!)

    ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an
    American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness,
    which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an
    over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were
    confused by the Bill of Rights.

    ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We don't care
    where you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back
    to wherever you came from! (Lastly....)

    ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country's
    history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in
    one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in
    any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of
    persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage
    and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!

    If you agree, share this with a friend. No, you don't have to,
    and nothing tragic will befall you if you don't. I just think
    it's about time common sense is allowed to flourish. Sensible
    people of the United States speak out because if you do not, who
