Just returned from Jamaica in an aeroplane which flew at 530 MPH if speed kills why am I not dead?

The federal government has far to much leeway for editing their statements and actions. Members of Congress ask for “unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks”. Enforcement of laws change from case to case, often lacking uniformity. Does anyone understand rule making authority and how rules and regulations get changed?
We have much work to do if we’re going to reform the federal government.
There is a simple way to solve this problem. All a State has to do is repeal the plate requirement for motor vehicles. Some States are talking about cutting water off to the NSA. Why should people be tagged like cattle when they travel? Cut the plates off, problem solved. Instead the Tennessee General Assembly is looking to steal more money by upping seat belt fines. More of that tough of crime garbage from Republicans.
Here’s an idea that will save lives and a pile of money. Get cops off the streets.
It remains to be seen whether Obama actually follows through on this, considering he has lied about nearly everything else he has promised to do. Cleaning the jails of non-violent criminals is a good thing.
This article raises a lot of questions that need to be answered. It will be interesting to see how this all develops.
It should be pointed out that the Tennessee General Assembly has seen fit to provide us with a Soviet style “election” for non-trial court Judges in this State.
This article in entitled, What’s Wrong with Police in Iceland? It should be called what’s wrong with Americans for putting up with a murderous police state.
Here in Blount County, I’ve read about cops shooting at least a couple of individuals in situations where the cops faced no danger. Immediately the Sheriff’s Dept. and local rag go into defense of murder and spin it. It wasn’t long ago that we were fed the story of Sheriff Be-Wrong (Berrong) saving us from the Grainger County Coffee Monster.
Recently there was a front page story about a cop shooting a dog, making it sound like it was a good thing simply because the dog was barking and moving toward the officer, while a man who shot a lady’s dog is going to face trial. Both were wrong, but The Daily Slime acted like the officer was just doing his job. Murder is ok, so long as a cop is doing it. Several of the Commissioners want to put more of these murderers on the streets to harass us even more, using “free” money from the feds.
Cops are unconstitutional and this country didn’t have them for the first half century of it’s existence. For your reference, Roger Roots law review article, Are Cops Constitutional.
Let freedom ring!
