    Brilliant and so apropos the Bush administration - Cheney, Rove, and Rice (I know, I missed out a few) really had this quote going for them. Anon, perhaps the Fed.

    As Archer so aptly put it, where to begin. The 9th and 10th are gone, Warren separated the US from We The People, I've spoken of a friend that went to prison without as much as a grand jury hearing his case and, courts completely changing official transcripts - not allowing appeals, courts not allowing to be heard cases against the 16th and other Constitutional issues, etc., etc., etc.

    This quote is applicable to all countries where the Governments violate and usurp the fundamental rights of its people by taking control of the system of justice. The most horrible situation of justice is created where the Attorney General for the Government is also the person who will hire or appoint new judges. Now when people go to the court to find justice they think they are facing an impartial judge but actually they are before an AGENT of that Government. This quote is particularly true for the Canadian Justice System.

    Odious is generous while not beginning to describe the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's (Canada, U.S., etc.) courts. Courts vain claim justice while oppressing sovereign individuals through enforcing socialism, immorality, tyranny, compelled compliance, victimless crimes, government licenses, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, police state confiscations, funny money, etc.), demonic canons and alienation of inalienable rights, liberty and nature's law. I have personal experience of court actions that are vile beyond description (NOT within the bounds of justice)

    The most delightful of freedoms is when a gentlemen realizes he has something positive, wholesome, and developmental  to offer, and asks, what can I do for my country?
