Overheard on the interwebs:

Rightwinger A:
Judge Scheindlin in a meaningful way, challenged the power of the police state - this is a rare thing in today’s fear inspired culture. Her decision was not politically popular in NYC. The three judge panel made a political decision - period. Her non-decision actions gave them an opening and they took it.

No one who has read the Bill of Rights can disagree with the original ruling.

Rightwinger B:
Ok, yeah whatever. Some don't live in the real world as it is not as they wish it were to be.

Each Oct 31, for a good scare, I dont watch dracula or frankenstein films.

I like my scare on a realistic side. A reminder of what the world could actually become if we're not careful and vigilant.

And so I watch Charles Bronson in Death Wish. Set in NY in 1974, this is a REMINDER of WHAT exactly things could become IF we allow uppity judges and politicians to allow our safety to degenerate into utter and total chaos.

For true liberty to exist FIRST there must exist safety which means in the real world of which we live in that we can walk in pubic places without a heightened threat of getting killed.

Apparently Mayor Bloomberg has watched Death Wish or at heart he understands the vitalness of continuing an important policy of making sure that people don't get robbed, raped, or murdered in open plain view.

You have a nice day.

I am just trying to decide which way N.Y. City will go when they elect the Commie. Will they take back the murder capital crown from Chicago or will they go full fledged Detroit?

Rightwinger B missed the very obvious point that in Death Wish, it was a disarmed citizen who was victimized, and once arming himself, was able to walk the night safely again. Rather than being a good justification for compromising personal liberties in exchange for safety, it’s a great example of why that trade off isn’t always necessary.

The more liberty we have, the better we can defend ourselves, and the less need we have for the government to step in, and step on our liberties as they inevitably do.
