If you don't like bundled cable, don't subscribe to it.

Or ... better yet ... don't watch TV! Your mind is being corrupted by TV. I have watched no TV in my house for 15 years.

"CP" you may think that the Civil Service system is "perceived" to confer on government employees a "property right" regarding their jobs, but the PERCEPTION is all YOURS, and is FALSE.

If you think that Civil Servants cannot be disciplined, or fired, or laid off, or "reduced in force," you are incorrect.

I suppose you would prefer the "spoils system" in which every time the US government politically changes its officials, every Civil Servant should be laid off and a new group of Civil Servants should be hired by the politicians? What idiocy! The Civil Service system was created to keep that situation from happening.

CELEBRATE THE BILL OF RIGHTS: Ninth Amendment!
The Ninth Amendment recognizes that there are other rights existing which are not enumerated in the Bill of Rights. These Natural Rights exist by virtue of Natural Law.
“There are three schools of natural law theory: divine natural law, secular natural law, and historical natural law. Divine natural law represents the system of principles believed to have been revealed or inspired by God or some other supreme and supernatural being. These divine principles are typically reflected by authoritative religious writings such as Scripture. Secular natural law represents the system of principles derived from the physical, biological, and behavioral laws of nature as perceived by the human intellect and elaborated through reason. Historical natural law represents the system of principles that has evolved over time through the slow accretion of custom, tradition, and experience. Each school of natural law influenced the Founding Fathers during the nascent years of U.S. law in the eighteenth century and continue to influence the decision-making process of state and federal courts today.”
I see that you are "Propagandizing for God" again, "CP." You incompletely and incorrectly say what you believe to be the Ninth Amendment, and then you add YOUR belief that these "Natural Rights" exist by virtue of "Natural Law."

The Ninth Amendment says NOTHING about "Natural Rights" or "Natural Law" or "Divine Natural Law" or "Secular Natural Law" or "Historical Natural Law." Here is the full text of the Ninth Amendment:

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

Although you are sly, you are merely a PROPAGANDIST, out to put your slanted viewpoint before the public. Why don't you stick to the TRUTH?

Cost of Big Government
James Madison said:
“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined.”(Federalist Papers #45)
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”(Amendment X).
A legitimate and primary purpose of civil government is to safeguard the God-given rights of its citizens; namely, life, liberty, and property. Only those duties, functions, and programs specifically assigned to the federal government by the Constitution should be funded. We call upon Congress and the President to stop all federal expenditures which are not specifically authorized by the U.S. Constitution, and to restore to the states those powers, programs, and sources of revenue that the federal government has usurped. We call upon the President to use his veto power to stop irresponsible and unconstitutional appropriations and refuse to spend money appropriated by Congress for unconstitutional programs or in excess of tax revenue collected.
Budget considerations are greatly impacted by the ever rising national debt. Interest on the debt is one of the largest expenses of government, and unless the interest is paid, the debt will continue to grow as interest is added to interest. We must eliminate the debt in the shortest reasonable time by:
"Not spending more than collected revenues;"
"Paying interest as it accrues; and"
"Making annual reductions in the principal"
We could eliminate the debt more rapidly by selling certain lands and other federal assets, including foreign military bases, and applying the proceeds exclusively to debt reduction.
One of the greatest contributors to deficit spending is war. If the country is to eliminate debt, these United States cannot become gratuitously involved in constant wars. Constitutional government, as the founders envisioned it, was not imperial. It was certainly not contemplated that America would police the world at the taxpayers’ expense.
We reject the misleading use of the terms “surplus” and “balanced budget” as long as we have public debt. We oppose dishonest accounting practices such as “off-budget items” used to hide unconstitutional spending practices.
We call for an end to the raiding by the federal government of the Social Security, Railroad Retirement and Medicare funds. We believe that over a protracted period the Social Security system may be privatized without disadvantage to the beneficiaries of the system. However, the program has been in place since the 1930s, and workers and their employers were taxed for the program and paid in good faith. The government promised to deliver the benefits, and must meet this commitment.
We call for the abolition of the Civil Service system, which is perceived to confer on government employees a “property right” regarding their jobs.
Wow! I didn't know you are a "closet Republican," "CP"!

You say, "We believe that over a protracted period the Social Security system may be privatized without disadvantage to the beneficiaries of the system."

So you want the Social Security system to be turned over to the banks and lending institutions and the stock market for their overseeing? You are just another "capitalist" who wants to take over the funds in the Social Security system, so that you and your rich buddies can raid those funds.

Krauthammer Predicts The Next Big Government Bailout
Related:
Charles Krauthammer,
Obamacare
The public’s understanding of just how bad Obamacare is should be named the biggest news story of 2013, conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer said.
“The lie of the year, according to Politifact, is ‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,’” Krauthammerwrote in his Washington Post column Friday, referring to the Pulitzer Prize-winning fact check website’s dubious honor awarded to President Barack Obama earlier this month.“But the story of the year is a nation waking up to just how radical Obamacare is — which is why it required such outright deception to get it passed in the first place.”
Krauthammer called the unworkable law a government takeover that he predicts will ultimately lead to a massive bailout of the health insurance industry.
“[I]f adverse selection drives insurers into a financial death spiral — too few healthy young people to offset more costly, sicker, older folks — their only recourse will be a government bailout. Do they really want to get on the wrong side of the White House, their only lifeline when facing insolvency?” he wrote.“I don’t care a whit for the insurance companies. They deserve what they get. They collaborated with the White House in concocting this scheme and are now being swallowed by it. But I do care about the citizenry and its access to a functioning, flourishing, choice-driven medical system.”
He added,“The insurance providers, the backbone of the system, are being utterly transformed. They are rapidly becoming mere extensions of the federal government.”
The assertions come as the Obama administration announced yet another delay in the law; Congress raises more concerns about security risks on the website; and the most recent Kaiser Health poll found just 34 percent of the public view the Affordable Care Act favorably.
On Thursday, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that the 5 million people who have had their health insurance plans canceled after the Obamacare implementation would be eligible for a “hardship exemption” from the individual mandate that was set to take effect Jan. 1, 2014. Those qualifying for the exemptions will be allowed to enroll in cheaper plans that do not meet government standards under the law.
Krauthammer said the biggest deception was that the law would maintain a free market health system with minor disruptions, other than caring for the most needy.
“In fact, Obamacare is a full-scale federal takeover,” Krauthammer wrote.“The keep-your-plan-if-you-like-you r-plan ruse was a way of saying to the millions of Americans who had insurance and liked what they had: Don’t worry. You’ll be left unmolested. For you, everything goes on as before. That was a fraud from the very beginning. The law was designed to throw people off their private plans and into government-run exchanges where they would be made to overpay — forced to purchase government-mandated services they don’t need — as a way to subsidize others.”
Though the law was never popular, it took the mass cancellations to make Americans see how bad and unaffordable the Affordable Care Act is, Krauthammer wrote.
“It wasn’t until the first cancellation notices went out in late 2013 that the deception began to be understood. And felt. Six million Americans with private insurance have just lost it. And that’s just the beginning,” he wrote.“By the Department of Health and Human Services’ own estimates, about 75 million Americans would have plans that their employers would have the right to cancel. And millions of middle-class workers who will migrate to the exchanges and don’t qualify for government subsidies will see their premiums, deductibles and co-pays go up.”

The Bill of Rights does not list every right that the people have. During the ratification debate, many called for a bill of rights to be added to the document. Federalists, who supported the Constitution as written, worried that a listing of certain rights would lead people to think that other rights were less important. The Ninth Amendment was added to try to prevent this misconception. Read more at http://billofrightsinstitute.org/resources/ed...

So don't go off on flights of fancy and saying that the Ninth Amendment says what it does NOT say.

In your last comment, you alleged:

"The Ninth Amendment recognizes that there are other rights existing which are not enumerated in the Bill of Rights. These Natural Rights exist by virtue of Natural Law."

The Ninth Amendment says NOTHING about "Natural Rights" or "Natural Law." You just made that up.

I had some respect for you previously, because you were doing pretty well, in my opinion, about the US Constitution. But THEN, you decided that "God" had to be drug in, and now "Natural Rights" and "Natural Law" (which probably are "codewords" for "God's Law.")

If you were to read the First Amendment, you would realize that you should avoid bringing in your thoughts about "God" and "Natural Rights" and "Natural Law." Especially since your thoughts about them are more than tinged with religion.

I have decided that you are just another "fundamentalist" (because of your focus on religion) and a "capitalist" (because you stated that Social Security should be turned over to the banks and be subject to the whim of the stock market.)
