Whose Rights?

You have the right to remain silent.
You also have the right to free speech.
You supposedly have the right to the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness.
And you also have the right to pay for those things.
But ever since our current administration turned America into Bush World you no longer have any rights that conflict with the profit margins of big business.
Your latest trek backwards in time to a feudal state was announced today when the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against travelers stuck on airplanes for untold hours worth of delays. It is a sad state of affairs when you see the list of your rights that the airlines went to court to block.
These rights are:
Food
Water
Clean Toilets and
Fresh Air.
Marie Antoinette would be proud!
