After revisiting this thread and considering the lab type stuff I've bought over the year I would hate for cops to search my home. I don't like having lots of 'SPLANIN to do!

Ummm...that is completely American. I'm not saying all laws are useful to a developed society such as ours, and efforts could definitely be re-focused towards other more pressing matters, but regardless, as an American, you have rights, but they must be regulated to some extent or else we would be lawless animals...it's human nature. And since your an American, you have the right to leave if you don't like it. Have fun homebrewing in Greenland.

This is bad news for the Blichmann Company.

If it can be regulated then it isn't a right; but rather a privilege. And "rights" don't care about your nationality.

From the Declaration of Independence:
Quote:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Government's proper role is protecting rights, not regulating them.

"Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add “within the limits of the law,” because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual." TJ

In the abstract, you are correct.

In the actuality, we do not (as a nation) live up to our high ideals.

Basically, we can like it or lump it. Or leave. That's the way it is.

So, any updates on the guy that was arrested? I have been wondering, but dared not to resurrect this train wreck. Since it happened anyway, I figured I would ask.
