    No, that only speaks poorly of those I respect in the eyes of people beneath contempt.

    You simply cannot get it through your egotistical little peabrain that the only person who thinks you have any stature around here is you. When you prance around, declaring that people can't have your approval, you're basically hoarding Monopoly money: it has no value, and your behavior just makes everyone laugh at you.

    Learn the difference between "reasonable" and "nice", Chuckles. You don't deserve to be treated nicely, and it would be unreasonable of me to treat you better than you have earned.

    Words mean things, and what you say it means is not in there.

    I'll even give you a little and say that they spent the same amount as the NRA. How about that?

    I'm not ignoring them. I'm also keeping them in the appropriate context, which is not restrictive on the second clause.

    You're actually correct. The NRA and Planned Parenthood have donated almost exactly the same amount to individual candidates since 2012 ($2.7 million versus $2.6 respectively), according to USA Today.

    That’s not how the law works, chief. If it doesn’t say it explicitly in black and white, then it doesn’t exist. You don’t get to declare you believe something to be “implied”.
    It’s a right. It belongs to the people. It cannot be disputed. Time to move on, sparky.

    Yes, they clearly do; the first clause is about the security of a free State, not natural rights.

    The first clause is the Context.
