    a sheriffs assn that has taken a pledge to stand against the errosion of the bill of rights.

    It was formed shortly after the patriot act was passed into law. It has resulted in DEA agents being tossed in jail for attempting to raid a medical marajuana patients garden without a proper warrant. Various sheriffs refusing to arrest OWS protestors because the county commishionser said so.

    It has also resulted in several counties in the 11 western states saying no to home land security money.

    All those things have been published in the local papers but not on the front page.

    It is also historically normal............The next civil war will be East and West. Let us hope it is not in our life time. We have been grumbling and bitching for well over 100 years now and not enforcing many many federal laws. In hindsight sometimes this is good sometimes not so much.

    Mostly we are on the right side of history but then again the opium trade here didn't end until 1965.................so maybe we are wrong sometimes as well.
