The Stupidest Question You Will Read Today

I really have to stop reading Kathy Shaidle. She gives me heartburn. Here is Kathy struggling with the concept of human rights:
Now maybe some of you understand why some conservatives were worried about the Civil Rights Movement back in the 1960s.

Yes, it is very brave and noble to refuse to give up your seat on the bus (an incident that was planned in advance, just like this one) or at thelunchcounter . Those people had real guts. I sympathize with their feelings and can't begin to imagine how humiliating and frustrating their lives must have been at the time.

But does anyone really have a Constitutional right to eat a cheese sandwich at Woolworth's, or even to this or that seat on a bus owned by a private company? (emphasis Kathy's)
Um, yes. Yes they do. The Declaration of Independence declares "all men are created equal" and this is backed up by the ninth amendment to the Constitution. So all people are entitled to eat at Woolworth's and to a seat on a bus, private or not. It's called treating people like a human beings, Kathy. You should try it some time.
