The Ninth Amendment

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

I hereby nominate the following as the most fundamental of these un-enumerated Rights:

The Right to be left alone.

Your business is yours to mind.  Should you have a problem, and decide to ask for assistance with your problem, you invite others to mind your business.  It thus behooves us to be very careful as to what problems we invite others to assist us with.

As to those who invite themselves to mind your business:

The correct way to punctuate a sentence that states: “Of course it is none of my business, but — ” is to place a period after the word “but.” Don’t use excessive force in supplying such a moron with a period. Cutting his throat is only a momentary pleasure and is bound to get you talked about.

Time Enough for Love

Don’t let that Camel’s nose under your tent flap unless you’re willing to share your entire tent with the beast.
