Video clip of the day

Via Dueling Bar Stools:

Rand Paul (R-KY) on the confiscatory nature of alleged "rights".

"It's not an abstraction."

"If I'm a physician in your neighborhood and you say you have a right to health care, do you have a right to beat down my door and with the police escort me away and force me to take care of you?"

If you live in Indiana, the answer is an emphatic "yes!" Paul is right - these aren't abstractions. The confluence of declaring health care a right and the authorities' unfettered ability to enter your home, no matter how unlawful the reason, makes what he is describing above a real-life scenario.

Dude, the chick behind him keeps checking out her chest to make sure either she's showing "enough" or showing "too much."

She wanted to make sure she wasn't being a distraction... and that ain't also any abstraction!

What was Paul saying again???
