Don't google it. Just answer if you know, or guess!

Who said this? :

"Personal property is the effect of society; and it is as impossible for an individual to acquire personal property without the aid of society, as it is for him to make land originally.
Separate an individual from society, and give him an island or a continent to possess, and he cannot acquire personal property. He cannot be rich. So inseparably are the means connected with the end, in all cases, that where the former do not exist the latter cannot be obtained. All accumulation, therefore, of personal property, beyond what a man's own hands produce, is derived to him by living in society; and he owes on every principle of justice, of gratitude, and of civilization, a part of that accumulation back again to society from whence the whole came."

LOL! You've been reduced to foolish sniping and cheap shots! Where's your great intellect now Dub? I could take your debating skills, personality, and intelligence, shove them up an amoeba's anus and it wouldn't even make the poor amoeba burp! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

So it dawned on you there is no equivalence.

I'm proud of you.

No, has it dawned on you that no one gives a sh*t what you think?

See, unlike you, I prefer to leave the matter up to the reader to decide on for his or her self. Is that clear enough for you? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif

Tap! Tap! Tap!

Pity, how far down and away from the principles which our country was founded upon, we have been driven by the greed and corruption of the Repiglican Party.
