Reader comments about this quote:
The vast majority of "laws" we are subject to are in place as a matter of control, not justice. Here in Canada the courts would have you believe that the right to self defense has been abolished, it has not. But you will be prosecuted for defending your own life in your own home...The Law is an Ass.

    I have a lot more respect for sausages than I do for that bunch of lawyers making laws in Washington.

    The administration here in the USA continues to ignore our Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence. We the People spoke up in November election but needed to speak up more. It will get better but it is going to be a long up hill fight. Not a physical fight but using our voices and staying on top of things.

    jim, I like it, me too. I for one am not inspired knowing how rules, orders, decrees, statutes, etc. are made (man can not make law, only God can make law). Statutes, like sausages, cease to be healthy impetuses when commencing existence from a diseased source.

    Ain't that the truth...
