    Could you imagine Brazil's Carnival happening somewhere in the US? Everybody would go to prison for something or other. Apparently Brazil’s lawmakers has concerns about the potential of a progression towards a US mentality. As result Brazil legislators are moving towards amending their Constitution to make the “search for happiness” an inalienable right.

    In the US, Republicans view an “inalienable right” for them to put you in prison is you differentiate for conservative values (half naked men and women, parting, drinking? Oh my!) The Democrats are OK with this differentiation of values mentality as long as everyone receives the same accessibility to prison and gets fair and equal treatment (demeaning to women, sexist displays, danger of hurting someone while drinking, non-permitted partying? Oh my!)
