Having lived in Eastern Kentucky in the shadow of the Good Old Boy Political system all my life, I have learned to hate and despise ALL Judges and Lawyers as the most corrupt and vile of all sub-species of Humanity. That said, there is ONE Judge who I would be Honored to call my friend. His name is Andrew Napolitano. Likewise, there is ONE lawyer who I would invite to my house for a barbecue, and his name is Peter Johnson, Jr. It's a damned SHAME that all legalists can't be the caliber of these two. Judge, stop by if you're ever in the area.

WHEN IS THIS PRESIDENT GOING TO REMOVE MARTIAL LAW FROM OUR
COUNTRY IT HAS NOT BEEN SIGNED OFF AND IT IS STILL IN EFFECT TODAY,
IT STARTED IN 1913 THEN RE-SIGNED IN 1933, AND THE COMMANDER AND
CHEIF HAS LEFT IT IN PLACE EVER SINCE.
IF YOU WANT TO CLOSE FEDERAL PRISON CAMPS FOR DETAINIES YOU
GOT DECLARE MARTIAL LAW IS OVER, IT HAS NOT BEEN DONE YET.
you dont believe me look in your courts and federal/state buildings at the AMERICAN
FLAG DRAPPED WITH A GOLD SINGE AROUND IT.
WHY IT HASNT ? THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO CONTINUE THEIR ABUSES
AGAINST ITS CITIZENS, THE CONSTITUTION DOES NOT APPLY WHEN MARTIAL
LAW IS INACTED
Last night, 8/13, one of the guests kept spouting "where did the Founding Fathers (or the Constitution) say that the right to bear arms was intended to defend against or be used against the government."
From the writings of Thomas Jefferson:
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
I think that governor Palin is the leader of the Tea Party Express, not the tea party as a whole. Last night the question was asked, how bad does it have to get before we arm ourselves against Congress? I say wait unt they put us onto the cattle carts to ensure that we did everything we could in a peaceful manner as we wait for the courts to decide on our redress of grievances.
