American History: Right to Eat Dinner
Sun, 10/27/13 4:26 PM
OK, I'm looking for American history buffs: I recall way back in history class about an objection by a member of the 1st Constitutional Convention objecting to the Bill of Rights because it might be construed as all encompassing, and to make it so would require putting in ridiculously obvious rights. The one that I recall he mentioned as an example is the right to choose what you are going to eat for dinner. I can't seem to find it on the Internet, though; any history buffs remember anything like that? Thanks!
