    And Trumps taxes are relevant to Penelope's post how?

    Oh, and how do you know how much tax Trump pays?

    /——/ Then who does the Trump hater claims pays no taxes? If she didn’t mean Trump then I’ll apologize.

    Probably not much, I infer that in 05 year is the only year he paid taxes and I also infer that he himself sent them to Maddow.

    This post is about the second amendment not Trumps taxes which he doesn't pay.

    "Isn't it funny Bundy is a hero, and the kneelers are crap. First is a guy who thinks he is above the law and doesn't pay taxes, and the second is to draw attention to racial injustice by the police, the former is armed, the latter only kneels."

    It sounds to me like she is talking about Bundy.

    Yes, law is subject to collective agreement. It is subject to human interpretation. Law, being language, is living and developing all the time. Concepts morph and evolve. Look at the Constitution closely. It starts with, "We, the people...". Those who want to freeze the Constitution in the eighteenth century, who refuse to recognize a living document, inherently intend that the people indicated in those words at that time are the same "people" of today. Quite obviously, that is not the case. The people who wrote and ratified the Constitution were of one, exclusive minority. The voting public, those eligible to have taxation with representation, was small and exclusive.
    Today, that voting, represented public is composed of the majority. It is women and other large segments of the population that were outside the group of "people" who made decisions 'back then'. There is no way to seriously claim that 'original intent' can always be applied. It cannot be seriously, honestly maintained that we, today, be slaves to concepts and verbiage from hundreds of years ago. Trying to so rigidly function will only bring about sharp, unwanted and unnecessary over reaction.

    /----/ "Those who want to freeze the Constitution in the eighteenth century, " Careful, democRATs may take that logic to overturn the 13th Amendment and reintroduce slavery.

    I admire someone who can admit when they were wrong. Well done. We need more people who do this.

    /——/ The First Amendment doesn’t say anything about Libtards using social media to spread their Progressive agenda so STFU.
    TIA
