I'll take the penalty. Cut and pasting the questions like that made it easier for me to answer with the question right there.

I'll save my ranting for the Q1 discussion.

So, are you going to be checking out the news conferences or what? With this game and E3, how can I be expected to get any work done today?

I don't know how much easier and obvious this question could be. Inalienable was in quotes.

* Yes, the right to property is well-established, but it is not one of the three Inalienable Rights as expressed in the Declaration of Independence.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Note that there are unalienable rights besides the 3 explicitly mentioned - probably an infinite number.

That's not the question you asked.

Also, the Declaration says "unalienable."

Yep, as defined by the Declaration of Independence, unalienable rights include but are not limited to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".

And you knew what he wanted. That said, I say we let the lawyers brawl it out. If they all agree with you, give you 0 points.

Question 2: Name a state carried by Obama in the 2008 presidential election.

Just tell me this, would Nebraska have been a correct answer for both? I was very tempted.

I asked for clarification ahead of time. Didn't get a response. If he asked for one of the 3 explicit rights mentioned in the DoI, then of course, I would have answered one of those 3. Then on top of it, to put quotes around "Inalienable" in the question (to suggest the DoI) when the word is really 'unalienable,' makes it all the worse.

No, Obama carried a Congressional district not a state.

Carried may be the opportune word but I am sure it would have sparked a lively discussion.

I'd say NE is wrong for both.

NE is right for McCain, wrong for Obama. McCain won the 2 state-wide electoral votes available under the CDM.

Thankfully, Nebraska was not an answer anyone gave.

On the other hand...
