I hope that the golden rule doesnt apply to masochists. I sure wouldnt like someone to whip me, or pull out my fingenails or something like that, hoping that I will do the same to him. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by TIMBONI from Friday, August 29, 2008 10:11:36 PM)
My theory is that Democracy gives you the freedom to do whatever you want to do . . . until it interferes with someone else's right to do whatever they want to do. Think about it. Do you have the right to kill ? NO, because it interferes with the other person's right to live. Do you have the right to steal ? NO, because it interferes with someone else's right to work hard and earn those things. Etc, etc, etc. It's as simple as "The Golden Rule", do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

I Just wanted to add a little more on this subject. What I'm about to say is not aimed at the entire American People.I have nothing against Americans, but those few who are on top of the Ivory Tower Like the Government and Big Business etc. Altough I find what's going on in that region of the World alarming the U.S. is claiming Russia has attacked and Invaded a soveriegn Country ..But what about the United States? They've done that sort of thing countless times in Latin American Countries and other nations around the Globe.They had Fulgencio Batista in power in Cuba who was corrupt as Well the Sha Of Iran who was put in power and Henry Kissinger was quoted as saying " He's a Bastard,But he's our Bastard." They've installed Governments in Countries as long as it suited there domestic interests.Now they're coming to the aid of the Georgians? I didn't exactly see them do that when there was a Genocide going on in a place like Rwanda.I guess there was no Oil Reserves or other natural resources for Big Business to exploit. Just want to close off with what The Late George Carlin stated in his bit called The Owners Of this Country " You're not Free ! You're Owned.The owners of this Country they own you.They own all the important Land they control and own the Major Media outlets and they have The Senate,Judges,Congress all in there back pocket.This Country was bought and paid for a long time ago.They got you by the Balls! It's a Big Exclusive Club and Guess what !..You and Me..We're not in it." This can be said for my country to and others as well.
