18 USC § 1385 - Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus

US Code
Notes
Updates

"Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."

That gets Kid Reno 2 years for Waco right there.

Yes. My only point is that, unlike RR, it's possible that the Buckmaster is a well-heeled guy, so he's not just a poor shlub being used and mocked by the moneyed.
For a price, the moneyed can use and mock me.

I've been paid less for worse.

I beat and robbed a guy one night in Birmingham and got 4 dollars.

And some change.

Did I translate the Preamble? I just posted it, and offered it as evidence that the purpose of the government was to benefit the American people in a variety of ways beyond what Buck saw as its purpose: to bolster the economy and steer cleat of profit making.

Nanny state? That was the conservative choice. Your nanny is reading your emails. Your nanny wants to restrict reproductive freedom, to tell you what you can smoke, and who you can marry.

The state I would support is the opposite.

If I had my druthers, I would slash your military budget by two thirds, your spying budget by half, eliminate your War on Drugs and Homeland Security Departments, eliminate your farm subsidies and other corporate welfare, and increase spending on ordinary Americans - more low interest school and business loans, better VA benefits, universal health care, double the minimum wage, etc.- and infrastructure. Your government would be about 25-40% of the size it is, and your taxes would plummet.

Is that what you mean by a nanny state?

You consistently trust the wrong people.

Don't you think that you owe it to us and to yourself to do better than that?

Yes, you translated it.

To fit your meaning and to help your cause that the government is supposed to take care of people.

You neglected to acknowledge that the Preamble is speaking about all Americans, not just the Americans in government or in power.

Your "evidence" falls flat because of that.
Nanny state? That was the conservative choice. Your nanny is reading your emails. Your nanny wants to restrict reproductive freedom, to tell you what you can smoke, and who you can marry.

LOL

They can read my emails if they want, I don't care. If it means a safer America, then let them have at it. They're looking for threats to America and her people, not for "hi mom" emails.

The Nanny State is when the government needs to hold your hand through everything and when you think that's the best way to do it and to impose as many regulations as needed to tell you the best way to live your life.

And of course, they'll need more tax money to do that.

That's YOUR utopian government, not mine.
If I had my druthers, I would slash your military budget by two thirds, your spying budget by half, eliminate your War on Drugs and Homeland Security Departments, eliminate your farm subsidies and other corporate welfare, and increase spending on ordinary Americans - more low interest school and business loans, better VA benefits, universal health care, double the minimum wage, etc.- and infrastructure.

I got a better idea.

How about the goddamned government just stick to the military and police and let the civilians handle their own business.

THAT'S the governments job, not taking care of everybody.

More evidence that we have no starting point from which to progress in discussion of political matters. I say that Bush used the Constitution as toilet paper:

I don't know if it's been discussed on this thread, but it has been discussed on this site.

Many people have corrected others, saying "It's ACA, not Obamacare."

Then the same douches turn around an say "Stupid Reagan and his stupid Star Wars".

When in fact the actual terms (abbreviated) would be ACA and SDI.

Do I call the ACA Obamacare, hell yes.

Do I know that's just a nickname, hell yes.

The FBI testified that they used only non-pyrotechnic gas rounds - which would not be capable of starting a fire or depriving inhabitants of a closed space of oxygen.

However, recovered from inside the house were U.S. Military Mark 651 CS Projectile.

It is pyrotechnic, and has a burning time of 25 to 30 seconds.

In 1998, investigators gained access to evidence storage from the Waco siege.

The Mark 651 pyrotechnic cannisters were missing.

Janet "Kid" Reno was questioned about this.

She said she was very upset.

6 Military flashbang grenades were found in 3 locations of the house.

The 3 locations were the locations of the origin of the fires that burned it.

In evidence, the flash grenades were mis-labeled as "silencers".

I don't know what she should or could have done except to give in to them demands of terrorist Christians, but I know that the parents and the spiritual leader of those children had weeks to let them out of that compound and didn't. Based only on faith, they and they alone chose to use those children as hostages and body shields for Koresh.

And the outcome was predictable: Either the Branch Davidians would eventually relent and obey the lawful order to surrender, or they might all perish. They understood that. They had over seven weeks to do the right thing, and they refused. Blame faith, not law enforcement:

2007, then junior senator Obama:

“I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution.”

lol

Obama has unilaterally suspended enforcement of immigration law.

He has refused to prosecute drug law violators.

He simply stopped defending federal laws he didn’t like, like the Defense of Marriage Act, in court.

He issues waivers on Obamacare and the No Child Left Behind Act.

His Environmental Protection Agency has attempted to regulate carbon emissions when Congress didn’t push through a global warming bill.

He appointed members of the National Labor Relations Board in violation of law.

His administration rammed through an auto bailout that screwed bondholders, as well as a slush fund from British Petroleum.

I agree Kennedy was cool and Reagan was a square. Reagan was witty, however. I recall an account of the time when Reagan was trying to revive the "thumbs up" gesture. He and staff had just stepped in and sat down in the presidential limo among a crowd of onlookers. Reagan flashed the thumbs up through the car window. A young guy outside gave him a finger. Reagan turned to the person seated next to him and said, "See. It's catching on".
Reagan was charismatic. I probably would have liked the man if we never discussed politics.
