  1. >The PoPo will use each and every trick in their "Trick Basket" to shove your butt into the pokey. "Sorry Ossifer, I don't have any idea where that silencer came from" might be a valid defense, but at least that Lying Bastard Politician is lying there dead as a mackeral and there is Absolutely Nothing that ties me to that poor dead Former Politician. I just love that old saying: Politicians and Diapers need changing, OFTEN FOR THE SAME REASON!!! Can't wait for November to come. 😉

  2. >The only thing you should say to the police is "get off my property".Or, "put your hands on top of your head".Or, "face down, arms and hands out from your body".Or, "don't worry, 'officer', all bleeding stops".

  3. >Is it a crime when the FBI lies to the People? Apparently one not worth punishing. Remember Waco. No matter what I see, no matter what I do, they'll never know I CAN talk.
