<quoted text>Well it's the same for the welfare of the country. There was no universal insurance. And there was no social security. But the people are needed to keep the country going.No matter how you argue your interpretation of the Constitution, others can argue in the same manner. You can't take what you want, deny it to others, and proclaim your version is what the founders wanted.
That's clearly taking a fascist position.
Do we really need Social Security? Shouldn’t people be responsible for planning their own retirement? The government shouldn’t be forcing people to purchase health insurance either.

The welfare of the country. Odd how we’ve turned promote the general welfare into provide the general welfare. Welfare is only mentioned in the preamble and had a slightly different meaning then.

From Noah’s 1828 dictionary

1. Exemption from misfortune, sickness, calamity or evil; the enjoyment of health and the common blessings of life; prosperity; happiness; applied to persons.

2. Exemption from any unusual evil or calamity; the enjoyment of peace and prosperity, or the ordinary blessings of society and civil government; applied to states.

From Merriam-Webster today

1: the state of doing well especially in respect to good fortune, happiness, well-being, or prosperity <must look out for your own welfare>

2a: aid in the form of money or necessities for those in need

Remember, promote not provide is mentioned in the US Constitution.

When a poor man shops a middle class man has a job and a rich man profits.
Look how many 7-11's and Circle K's are located in middle to lower income areas as well as your favorite store Walmart.
Investors don't care who is spending as long as people are spending.
Walmart my favorite store? No thanks.

I really shouldn’t have asked why you cater to the least productive members of society. It really should be why does society do that. That was unfair.

You don't get to decide how to parse the Constitution to meet your needs son. How to determine what it covers... when it covers.... how much it covers.
No matter how much you try and argue the point, the Air Force is NOT in the US Constitution. So you can avoid this simple fact unlike your convoluted argument about Obamacare is beyond reasonable human thought.
The Air Force was created out of the Army. Shall we merge it back into the Army just to keep you happy?

Where in the US Constitution is marriage defined?
Start here http://www.usconstitution.net/constnot.html
You will be surprised.
Marriage is a civil contract giving legal and other rights and benefits. Since it is a civil contract ALL ALL ALL ALL ALL ALL people should be able to enter into said contract..Get it now??

Being a civil contract, then it should be a civil union, not a religious one. In other words, Catholic priests or any other Pastor, Preacher, etc etc should NOT be forced to perform a religious ceremony (which is what marriage really is...professing a bond and a promise to one another in front of God) which would be anathema and a sacrilege to said religion.

It would be like the government forcing Imams and mosques to provide ham sandwiches. If they want to enter into a civil union with the contract witnessed & recorded by the State, that's fine, if there are sufficient votes among the public to pass it.

As long as the government remembers that it cannot interfere with Eclesiastical Laws, we're good. Yet, that is not what is happening here. Remember? Seperation of Church and State. The gov CANNOT restrict the free exercise thereof.

Why must you try to turn every forum into a homo rights forum?
Do you need me to provide you with some links to your desired subject matter? You can debate traveling the Hershey Highway to your hearts content there.

I think what Dr. Sniper is trying to say, is that this isn't the place for that discussion. When you and I were talking you tried to turn the conversation to religion. Now you seem to be on the homo marriage tangent.

This is a gun thread. Not a religion thread. Not a gay rights thread.

What it does is make that group look like hypocrits.

Yes, I understand the birth of the AF.

But they're still not listed in Constitution.

The Marines are part of the navy but are still a separate branch of service. As such, if you want to go down that path, they should be funded by the Navy.

I don't think SS is the problem, it's the manner in which the government has stuck it's finger into what it perceives as "free money."

On it's own, I think SS would have been a self sufficient, self propagating system.

bushie's last attempt by privatizing the system and turning it over to the stock market was akin to a gambler "betting the house" and hoping it would pan out.

Bull crap.

lol! It's not me son, it's right wing radicals. They want to use the "literal" definition of the Constitution to control non cons while interpreting what they want in order to promote their conservative agenda.

This is why I always chuckled when cons complained about the teleprompter.
