So, if you keep pit bulls and they've attacked prior guests who visited you
at your farm over the last two years,  and they attacked and bit vice
president Biden when he visited you, it's
(a) your fault for not keeping your animals under control?
(b) your dog's fault because animals will be animals?
(c) the lawyer's fault for reminding you, and the judge, and jury, and the
media about the prior attacks?
(d) the government's fault for permitting laws to exist that make your
responsible for the animals you keep?
(e) our fault because ours is a government by and for the people?

Does your answer change when you replace "pit bulls" with any animal you
Does your answer change when you replace "vice president Biden" with any
politician, movie star, friend, family member, or other person whom you
