This missing piece on each statue is the ENACTING CLAUSE!

Slick, you don't know a thing about me. You don't know that I have a military issued flag hanging in my office of a public building up side down. I'm just going to assume that you know what that means. You have no idea of the people that I cut slack just because I don't like getting in their pockets because the governments are getting into them enough without my help. You don't know that a ticked book last me 2 years when most officers go through a book in 6 wks to 2 months or less.
Every cop has his strong point, an area that he/she likes to work. Some love traffic, some love drug cases, my particular strong point is investigations. I get stolen guns off the street and out of the hands of violent criminals. I find stolen cars. I investigate child sexual abuse and rape and murder. Stuff you wouldn't have the guts to come from behind you cushy computer desk to deal with.
As I told someone in the other thread, the idea that you guys have would be wonderful in existance, but it is not going to exist in this current society until there is a breakdown of same.
Have you ever rode with a cop? Have you ever served in the military or are you just a mouth piece for your own ideas and design without anything in your vast experience to support it? I've served MY country in both the military and civilian role and I've done so with more than words. I would be surprised if you could say the same and I don't know that I would believe you if you. You seem to enjoy the anonymity of the internet. I've had a mod on here challenge me as to if I were a cop of not. I gave him my office phone number and gave him permission to talk to my chief. So yes, I am real, and I am a realist and I don't need the internet to hide behind.
You and your kind are so full of hate that you can't see the forest for the trees. You're just sad little people. You will be amazed as you grow up how much you learn and how much of what you thought you knew but didn't.
Gee, I hope that I don't get deleted by a mod for M&D. Anybody want to take bets on that?
Ummmm..............."Slick, you dont know a thing about me"......to borrow your condescension.........I've served in the military.......TWICE........honorably discharged both times, with enough awards and medals to paper a room.......am I proud of it?..........HELL no...... so stop gladhanding yourself....When your perfected, and.......NEVER.....break your statutes while off duty, let alone while on.......then you can come on back and correct me for being ......wrong...
You need to entertain something in your small mind, i'm not your bro, not your "son" and certainly glad that I dont live in your little corner of the universe......There's also something you need to get a grip on, I dont.......hate you.....get it? I dont hate any of you........I despise you, I even deteste you.......your hypocrites of the first magnitude..........but I can still have compassion for you the individual..........let that thought roll through your firmament......yep, you got some good ole fashioned anger out of me but you can never get me to hate you.
You see........Slick.....I seem to have tweaked a real nerve of yours, which psychologicaly would point to a deepseated angst, fed by your subconscious......knowing...that I'm right.....thus, the response....Dont feel too put upon..because I deteste the person that...I... used to be......a soldier......in service to a corporate state that impugnes the misplaced, misguided and ignorant devotion of those that do serve....to those that do take the oath and sends them to a farther shore to die for an unconstitutional war.....as I stated before.....I will KEEP my oath..........to the constitution.....but never again to a corporate charter....nuff said
A law established by an act of the legislature.
Under the U.S. and state constitutions, statutes are considered the primary source of law in the U.S. -- that is, legislatures make the law (statutes) and courts interpret the law (cases).
Most state statutes are organized by subject matter and published in books referred to as codes. Typically, a state has a family or civil code (where the divorce laws are usually contained), a criminal code (where incest, bigamy and domestic violence laws are often found), welfare code (which contains laws related to public benefits), probate code (where laws about wills, trusts and probate proceedings are collected) and many other codes dealing with a wide variety of topics. Federal statutes are organized into subject matter titles within the United States Code (for example, Title 18 for crimes and Title 11 for bankruptcy).
The written will of the legislature, solemnly expressed according to the forms prescribed in the Constitution; an act of the legislature.
n. 1) any system of regulations to govern the conduct of the people of a community, society or nation, in response to the need for regularity, consistency and justice based upon collective human experience.
2) n. a statute, ordinance or regulation enacted by the legislative branch of a government and signed into law, or in some nations created by decree without any democratic process. This is distinguished from "natural law," which is not based on statute, but on alleged common understanding of what is right and proper (often based on moral and religious precepts as well as common understanding of fairness and justice).
3) n. a generic term for any body of regulations for conduct, including specialized rules (military law), moral conduct under various religions and for organizations, usually called "bylaws."

On a side note I for one feel empathy for the public to which I belong. I do not like writing tickets. However there is times when you must. My two pet peeves in this world we drive in is loud music and children not in a safety seat. I don’t care if your are the pope himself, if I catch you blaring your offensive rap music cursing through the streets or you are stupid enough to let your child walk from the front seat to the back and back to the front then I WILL stop you and write you a several hundread dollar reminder of why you should not do that.

I too would like to wade in on this comment. I myself am from the ARMY. I could make several disparaging remarks to you about the Marines and anyone who has served can do the same. It is a right you gain by going through and for the most part is playful banter between friendly forces. Also a driving force for each to do their best. So I will refrain from insulting your branch and instead of thank you for serving as I and millions others have.
However with that being said I think I should reply that I personally don’t think you have done half the things you lead us to believe and personally think you have seen too many war movies. I know many marines and as seeashrink stated most have been very nice and humble (unless you count the fresh ones out of boot that act like they are God until you put one on his face). I personally can tell you that my father was a Force Recon member with the Marines in Vietnam and he was one of the most humble men you could have ever met. I NEVER knew what he did until the final months of his life when he began to tell me. And I then understood why he was so humble. These men did terrible things for our freedom in a war that we probably shouldn’t have even been in. To see you write in such a frivolous way about your past experiences (if even real) only cheapens the heroic deeds you and others of your team may or may not have done.
As far as your half hearted threats at the bottom I agree with seeashrink on this. If you drive through my area and are any less courteous to me than I am to you then I guess we will see which way that wall falls. I have no need to prove my manhood by getting into a cock measuring contest with you. I myself do not believe in fighting in these stupid arenas as I only know how to fight one way. As though my life depends on it. So be fair warned, if it comes to this I have no problem pulling your hair, scratching your face, or even biting your left testicle off and spitting it in your eye to win. Because my number one concern is that at the end of my tour of duty I AM going to go home and see my loved ones.
Sry for going off topic.
