This whole damn country (USA) is sniffing glue or something. Stop with the BlackLiveMatter and BlueLivesMatter BS. The issue is not race, its not police. I know cool black people, and a lot of black people who are straight up dicks. Same goes for cops (only most of the cops I know are dicks).

The real issue is that no one has respect for the personal rights that apply to all Americans. If you want justice, then stand behind your Bill of Rights. The BLM movement won't do squat for anyone.

Just to remind you of your rights.

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Amendment III

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment V

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Amendment VI

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

Amendment VII

In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

Amendment VIII

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Its not complicated. We don't need new laws, we need to up hold the ones we have. We don't need racial pride to fight for your rights. Pride comes before the fall.

People should be chanting in the streets "American Lives Matter". Where is the unity that everyone pays lip service too? Where is the mutual respect?

We don't need politician to change this country. We don't need them to talk down to us like children. All we need is to assert our Bill of Rights, and gut the system via Judicial Review.

The Parable of the Glue Sniffer.

Behold, the Republic of America is as a man who sniffeth the glue. In his stupor he seeketh security from those to his right and equality from those to his left, but he will become a beaten slave, neither knowing nor desiring truth.

The Bill does matter.

It is a promise to the poor and oppressed who dream of America.
It is a promise to the children who learn her ways.
It is an earned privilege of Americans from coast to coast.

And the tree of Liberty that Thomas Jefferson wrote about is now legally for all Americans to defend and enjoy.
As president Bush 1st said, "the rule of law" is the name of the game.
Some have taken an oath to defend the Constitution on which this bill is built, and of which this bill is part.

Many have no wisdom, no understanding, and no self-respect in their heart of hearts today.
Many have violated this oath and taken the money of the widow and of the orphan to keep it anyway.
Many, but not all.

Clinton and Trump are the left and right wings of the vulture, waiting to feast upon America's necrotic flesh.

“Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather."
