On 13 May 2010, I posted a cartoon in which I stated “We are a Nation of laws that are convenient to enforce or to disregard depending on the advantage to the elected.“
Recently, Senator Harry Reid’s son Rory supported the truth of my statement when he proudly proclaimed: “We believe in a country in which we are subject to laws and you can’t just ignore the laws we don’t like. I think clearly if state and local prosecutors look at this more closely, they’re going to find that he broke the law and he should be prosecuted. that we are a nation bound by law and we should prosecute those who break them.”
What Harry’s son seems to conveniently forget, or has simply disregarded, is the fact that President Obama and his Attorney General disregard any law they don’t like. Obama regularly changes his signature health care law illegally. He choses to disregard the work requirement in the welfare law, and he has totally trashed the laws on illegal entrance to the country, the list goes on.
I have but one question? Why aren’t Eric Holder, and Barack H. Obama in prison for breaking the laws they don’t like? In each one of these law breaking instances Obama is bound by oath to the Constitution to work with Congress to change the laws to show the changes. He swore to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the land. Why hasn’t Obama been impeached?
Instead, we saw an army of heavily armed and militant Bureau of Land Management workers descend upon a Nevada ranching family for the mere act of trespass on supposed government land. Evidently, Obama must feel powerless against the likes of Voldamir Pudin, therefore, he must flex his federal muscles against a harmless American rancher trying to eke a living raising cattle.
How long will it be that one of many SWAT Teams from heavily bureaucratic agencies descend upon you for some minor infraction of some obscure law? When will they break down your front door, and drag you in chains to jail for the infraction? Or worse, surround your home with a thousand armed bureaucrats with itchy trigger fingers and blow you to kingdom come.
