The Pete Morin Editorial Review # 2012-10

Do as I say, not as I do

Ever wonder why government gets to tell you what NOT to do in your life, but then goes ahead and does those very things?

Illegal drugs--thou must not consume or sell controlled substances unless thou shall be penalized with incarceration.
        Fact: government agents pose as buyers to catch sellers. Isn't it illegal to buy drugs? Oh, I forgot, it's ok for the government to pretend buying drugs. Apparently, government has to break the law to enforce the law.

Printing money---thou shall not print your own money unless thou shall be penalized with incarceration.
        Fact: government printing presses are completely overworked, straining to keep up with the demand to provide the citizenry with funny money. Much easier to finance debt when you have an unlimited supply of dollars. Try printing your own money and the government will accuse you of debasing the money supply with your fake dollars. But government debasing the dollar? NAH!!!

Speeding in your car---thou shall not speed, nor become a nuisance to the general public with your insouciant lack of concern for people's safety.
        Fact: how many times have you seen a police cruiser, or official government vehicle pass you going well beyond the speed limit WITHOUT its lights flashing? Apparently, government, and police vehicles are immune to accidents and can, therefore, travel at whatever speed they desire.

Lawsuits---thou shall not sue the state, or inconvienence an elected official by threatening a lawsuit.
        Fact: we reside in the most litigious society on the face of the earth. We file suit at the drop of a hat. Negligence, fraud, you name it. Sue the government for negligence? Can't do it. It's called immunity from the nasty little citizens. Government is perhaps the most fraudulent, negligent entity there exists on this earth, but lawsuits against our elected officials? That's a no-no.

This government, and that includes local, state and federal entities, is the most pitiful, corrupt, despicable bunch of numbskulls ever placed in control over people's lives. But don't worry, we'll keep electing the most ridiculous gasbags we can find. Why? Because we abhor the idea of having to be responsible for our own lives. The gasbags know it and they relish the chance to be our masters.

Do as I say, not as I do. And, oh, have a nice day!
