The U.S. vs U.K. Wimpiness Contest

READ your Constitution and you will confirm your statements concerning all the areas FedGov have no business meddling..... Article 1 Sectin 18 I believe is the address of the "list' of the powers assigned FedGov. Then that ever so pesky Tenth ARticle of Ammendment makes it crystal clear: FedGov can ONLY deal in its specific assigned tasks, none others. Everything else, unless specifically renied the States, remains with the States, or the People. If THAT outline were to be followed, 99% of the insanity, tyranny, tax burden would disappear overnight. Oh, and NONE of the former employees of any of these FedGov illegal entities can be eligible for either unemplloyment or retirement. Time they learn how to work and go get REAL jobs and contribute to the productive efforts of the rest of us, rather than standing in our way to the tune of more than a trillion bucks per year. Yes, that is the actual cost of compliance with all these government regulatioins, taxes, prohibitions, requirements, permits, reviews, checks, equipment mandates, reporting, etc. A trillion bucks to comply with federal regs that have NO basis in law, are "enacted" by unelected bureaucrats who are accountable to no one, and for the most part serve no useful purpose.
Brown is dead for precisely the same reason Trayvon Martin is dead..... hispappy never taught him to respect other people or their stuff. He stole the cigars, then beat up on the shopman, THEN goes off on the cop and tries to get HIS gun (as did Trayvon.... in both cases, THIS move is what brought the gun into the fight), roughing him up in the process. His final fatal spasm of stupidity came when he, KNOWING the cop was armed, and refusing to comply with the cop's orders, charged the cop full tilt from not far away. He'd already proven he had no respect for the life or safety of the cop..... so what else was the poor guy to think except that his own life was in immediate danger? While he was walking away, the cop held fire... though he COULD justifiably used lethal force, as the scuffle in the car and strongarm robbery either one could rise to the level of a felony assault, thus lethal force to detain a fleeing perp is legitimate. But no, he did not fire when he could justifiably had done. But when that huge linebacker sized kid turned and ran full tilt TOWARD him....... it became "him or me". If the people of that area, with or without outside help, turn and burn their own city then I'll have NO sympathy for them at all. I hope the government of the State of Missouri will respond with apropriate force to swiftly control it. And if they use rubber bullets on looters, arsonists, etc, they are crazy. ONLY when a few of them start having to pay for their idiocy with their own blood will they decide the bonus ain't worth the cost.

and the quire mayor and her sidekicks threw out the petitioin AFTER the Electiins Commission had examined a sufficient number of signatures and verified they are legitimate signatures of registered voters in the affected area... and certified the peition as valid. THIS is why the city is being sued. They are strutting about as though they are the head poohbahs of all and sundry, and not only above the law, but make the law as they go along.
ah, wring. Slander and ilbel actiions can be taken when the reputation or security of the victim of the gossip is harmed... even if the information spread is the truth.
"accidentally" means hitting someone they are not trying to hit. FBI statistics for you to digest: cops shoot about six times as many innocents when trying to stop a crime/criminal than do private gun carriers. Private gun carriers detain or capture at least four times as many crimes with their guns as do cops.... so the cops pose 24 times the danger to the general public than do private gun carriers. Further, the private gun carriers stop an adition 1.5 to 2 million crimes per year by bringing their guns to bear on the situation.... the vast majority of them without even firing a shot. Take that sick whinge elsewhere.. it is based on a lie.
trouble is, most people I've known to get a flu vaccine develop flu or flu like symptoms within a few days. This is one of the many reasons I have refused to take them. Pay money, get stabbed, then get sick with the very disease you are supposedly getting "immunised" against? Not to mention a little detail like the presence of thymerol or similar in nearly every vaccine out there....... no thanks.
and these worse than useless government agencies should not even exist.. thre is NO basis in our Constitution for any of them. Shut them down.
