    It was funny when it was written with an understanding from an oppressed ignorance. Amerika is a nation of almost no recognized laws; tyranny is written and regularly enforced. Law enforcement is an oxymoron

    The Constitution and Bill of Rights come to mind. The Second Amendment sure could have been clearer and grammatically correct. Somehow, the Constitution has been completely taken out of its original context in which ONLY the powers DELEGATED from the PEOPLE themselves to the government could be exercised -- ALL else is reserved to the People. In other words, if the People had the right, it could delegate it to be administered by a government of the people, by the people and for the people. If an individual did not have the right, the people collectively did not have it, nor could they delegate it to some other people. AND if the People did NOT delegate the power IN WRITING in the Constitution or its amendments, the government did not have the power nor the right to exercise such power.

    Washington has now usurped its power, treating the States and the People as subjects rather than rightful sovereigns, and now 'anything goes.' The merging of Bank and State with unlimited military power has made serfs of us all. One day it will end -- but the longer it goes, the more bloody will be the reformation.
