...in Harris' speech, she quoted the Declaration of Independence in saying that Americans are entitled to the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness, notably ignoring how that the phrase also states Americans are granted the right to life.
"We collectively believe and know, America is a promise … It is a promise of freedom and liberty," Harris said. "Not just some, but for all. A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence, that we are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Be clear, these rights were not bestowed upon us, they belong to us as Americans."
The full quote from the Declaration of Independence says Americans are endowed with the right to "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness"
..."We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,..."
Kammy's the gift that keeps on giving.
But, pb thinks that this also says tons about progressives in America. Who, among our lefty SwampLovers here, aren't on board with Kammy feeling free to rewrite history, just like Hitler did in Germany.
pb's take on this Fox article is that Fox is fixin to hype its viewers over the ongoing abortion debate. The Dobbs decision declared, constitutionally, that abortion law should be determined "by the people and their representatives." There'll be tons of brouhaha over abortion in the coming years. And, say what you will about Fox, Fox knows how to draw and keep an audience. Check the ratings of The Five and Jesse Watters and GUTFELD!. Fox News is a well run business.
So, pb gets that Fox is nasty over Kammy pretending away "endowed...with rights...among them are life..."
However, the important offense Kakklin Kammy committed against America is that she pretended away our national belief that people are endowed "by their Creator" with inalienable rights.
The significance of Kammy's sin against us all is reflected on SS every day. The United States was founded on the conviction that citizens are free. They possess liberty. They have rights...THAT ARE GIVEN TO THEM BY GOD...and that no king, nor President nor any government can take those rights away.
It's that political belief that sets pb apart from Curt and po and Donna and isle on SS.
(pb will let OD speak for himself but pb suspects that OD may, essentially, agree.)
The most foundational American belief is that human rights exist because those rights are a part of the Creator's plan for nature.
This is why pb...and others who believe in freedom...were so adamant and confident when "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" in the Oval Office so thoughtlessly attempted to steal our citizens' liberty during Covid.
It's why real Americans will always fight Big Brother.
