The trouble with that idea is that the first Constitutional Convention was subverted by...lawyers. The common misconception is the lie that states the Constitution was written "of the people, by the people, for the people," when in fact it was written of lawyers, by lawyers, for lawyers, to create a lawyer utopia, a land of the lawsuit. What have we got now, but a system that clearly has ANYONE trying to get around the massive expense of hiring a lawyer for court at a MASSIVE disadvantage, as the courts and legal industry have become so bogged down with fine-wording and screwy background laws it REQUIRES a law degree to navigate.

This morning while I was hunting and gathering food in the city, I ran into a food truck. I spoke to the owners of the food truck about the new city of Chicago ordinance on their business.

Chicago passed an ordinance that allows food trucks to prepare meals inside the food truck-which means they can put mustard on a hot dog for you, but the trucks cannot park within 200 feet of a brick and mortar establishment. That includes places like Walgreens.

Do you know how many parking spaces in Chicago’s loop there are that meet that qualification? Five. Cinquo. Cinque....
