Before I received this morning the email below from Ron Branson, which meshes with my own thinking, I was in the process yesterday (but was interrupted) of writing this:
“There oughta be a law!”
A few hundred feet from our home is an intersection at which a high-school throng of kids in cars were dashing from the parking lot, onto the street, and across my path, as I waited at a stop sign. Finally, I saw a moment to join that string of cars and did so, only to be stopped by a cop who had been watching from his car across that busy street. I forget the charge (driving to endanger, perhaps), but I took it to court and lost.
I should have asked the judge why the charges should not have been dismissed, because the cop had ignored a higher duty to control the flow of traffic in order to maintain safety and to give all involved a fair chance to get on with their lives.
It is that “higher duty” concept that I think might be used nowadays, with regard to law enforcement.
What about having all who go to court protest their very presence there under the concept that arresting officers have a higher duty instead to have been in the process of arresting all politicians and all above them in the chain of command who have done nothing to vet obama? What about the argument that the fact that they have not already done so proves that they have not upheld their sworn duty to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States and are therefore guilty of 1. misprision and 2. holding office illegally? That would include Joe Arpaio, Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, who had a chance to arrest obama and did not do so.
What about the argument that because even the Supreme Court of these United States of America has not seen to it that obama be properly vetted, it has lost the right to exist? What about the argument that because holder’s so-called “Justice Department” has been selective in its enforcement of law and has done nothing to vet obama, it has also lost the right to exist? What about the argument that because the House has not impeached obama, it has lost its right to exist; that because the U.S. Senate has failed to pass a budget and to insist that obama be properly vetted, it also no longer holds legal authority of any kind?
Shut them all down now.
