I recall Kirk & co settling a dispute on a planet between the Yarnks and Kharms (sp.?)...
Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Bit of a non-starter really....

Life, Liberty and all that (along with certain other Self-Evident Truths) comes from the Declaration of Independence. "We the People" leads off the U.S. Constitution, which goes on to "form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the General Welfare, and insure the blessings of Liberty."

And no, I won't read it like William Shatner.

Will you sing it like Schoolhouse Rock?

...how ELSE would I read it?

aww. I like BS's ideosyncratic delivery (so beautifully parodied in ReBoot)

Dare I say it, the States has the advantage having stuff like that written down... in the UK it's taken as unwritten truth until it disappears...

May I admire you excellent taste in strips?

The Kohms and the Yangs, according to Bjo Trimble's Concordance.

I bow in the matter to the man what has it in black & white (I have a monomania about black and white!) I was going on memories of the show that are over 20 years old.

Had some Republican at the last local furmeet grousing about how Obama wasn't qualified.

Spirit of the Stairs being what it is, only later did this cross my mind:

"Really? He's not? Let's just check the qualifications, shall we? Hmm...born in this country, over thirty-five, lived in this country for fourteen years... Yeah, he's qualified. Now, can we go back to that first one? Wasn't there some issue about whether McCain was a natural-born citizen?"

I love Sinfest. He tends to linger on religion a bit too often, but I'm usually in league with his points of view.

It's Cerebus in Boneville.

Wow. Um. I never noticed how much Squigley has grown to resemble Cerebus.

Sorry to come back to an old post....
but I just recalled: Asimov's The Stars Like Dust...
the secret that would destroy the Tyranni...
