    Yes! Isnt that the thing these days? Claim victim status. We need to get to a place where we are all victims so that we are then all equal.

    No idea what you are, actually. Although the character from Star Wars was pretty good.

    We are all equal in the eyes of our creator and law. Those in power that are tasked with applying it could use some guidance.

    Maybe, but that still doesn’t mean the law is not equal.

    Does freedom mean equality?

    How do we mean equality, equal treatment before the law or equal outcomes?

    That’s not what freedom is. Right-wing anti government agenda and “talking points” like you are spewing have nothing to do with America’s version of freedom. We settled that argument in 1865.
