Rights? You Bet!
Often when they are presenting their demands for other people's resources, government unionists claim that it is their right to do this; however, when pressed for an explanation, they usually resort to claiming that their rights are God-given. This claim is intended to obscure the fact that they were actually purchased from corrupt politicians. There will be more on this specious reasoning later. When it is used in this manner, the word right is a misnomer, or an inappropriate designation. In fact, it is simply a privilege, or entitlement, that has been granted by agents of the state. The state is permanently in the business of granting and taking away privileges to and from others.
Some of these agents of the state are politicians, and they have given themselves the privilege of appropriating, or confiscating, other people's money. As it has been noted here earlier, the politicians give some of the money that they take to the government unionists who take their cut of the loot and give some of it back to the politicians, and quicker than one can shout "thieving bast**ds, they have exercised their self-given privilege of buying another election with, you guessed it, other people's money. The morals of this process leave something to be desired.
Let's see here. They claim that their version of a god, an entity with whom it is impossible to consult and verify their outrageous claims, has granted them permission to hustle taxpayers. How very convenient for them. This is the very sort of argument that the Islamafascists used; they claimed that their god authorized them to commit mass murder in New York. Speaking of New York, up there they would say it something like this: rights, hah gotcher rights!
May your gods be with you.
