    thoughts. I will check it out. I needed to hear tonight exactly what you said. Thanks again.

    •  You, my compatriot, are as American as it gets ;). (0+ / 0-)

      Just because there is a law or ordinance, does not mean same is Constitutionally valid - it simply hasn't been challenged as such yet.  Even a lawyer can tell you that, and believe me, I understand the law, right down to the fine detail, I am surrounded by attorneys, government officials, and the like.  Some are authoritarians by nature, others question the value of certain laws.  It takes balls to challenge such a law, and you have to be willing to fight the fight all the way to the Supreme Court to see justice sometimes.  Governors, Mayors, Cops, Attorneys, sometimes make this stuff up as they go along.  We assume they are correct because they are in a position of authority - hence Authoritarians.  They are not always correct - but sometimes they are.  It takes knowledge, study, and plain old curiosity to sort through wrong from right sometimes.  Our laws are complicated - and many.

      That said, always remember, NO ONE is above the law - even our President, and our Congresscrittters.

      I have your back.  Keep up the argument Patriot.
