  •  Because everybody in the universe is (0+ / 0-)

    answerable to your ass, right? Everybody has to stop on your command and give a full accounting of themselves, or else what? Or else you pull your gun to back up your non-existent right to be gestapo of the week?  Who deputized you to butt into anybody's life but your own?

    And if somebody outdrew you and shot your ass while you were reaching for your piece you'd feel aggrieved, too, right?

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --

      •  Nope, I live in a nice happy little community (0+ / 0-)

        where people have rights and freedom to go about their business without being harassed by authoritarian TV cop wannabees. Anybody coming around pulling that stop and explain yourself around here would be instantly reported to the police many times over, and everybody would take notes to refer to when testifying at the eventual wrongful arrest, misprison terroristic threats and assault trial.

        Some people still value freedom and civil liberties.
