If 5-10 million citizens with semi-automatics rose up against a globalist socialist dictator they would overthrow him and they would not need rocket
launchers. The numbers would be sufficient to purge the rouge elements and restore our constitutional republic.
0-And who is in charge then? Alex Jones lol- maybe a Sheriff in Ky who thinks DANCING should be a Crime involving jail? A Sheriff in KY who says "no
gun law" BUT we should be able to randomly stop, search and run your name for no other reason?
Christ, look at the laws in that State (specifically certain Counties) and the sentencing for really stupid things - If some KY Sheriff rises up, I am
rising up AGAINST him. I like to dance and occasionally have a beer in my own home- I think that if the police see you having A beer on your front
porch this shout NOT be probable cause to enter your home and "count" how many cans of beer you have to (possibly) jail you for Bootlegging.
Especially since (living in laurel County) the closest place to buy "Take out" beer is Richmond KY or going into TN which is a 2 and a half hour round
-Anyhow I really laugh when totalitarian people who violate EVERYONES Civil rights want to scream about the Constitution when it effects THEM.
Not getting your point exactly, there are Stupid Laws across the nation and the
Who in the world got busted and jailed for dancing in their house? What is this Footloose?
As far as wet vs dry counties in Kentucky, these are decided by majority vote by the citizens of said county. I remember Hardin County being dry along
time ago, now in Elizabethtown there are liquor stores because citizens voted to make the county moist (Wet Cities).
Even more counties are going wet by vote.
The most recent cities to vote wet under this statute did so in successive weeks in the summer of 2012—Franklin and Murray on July 17, La Grange
on July 24, Georgetown on July 31, and Princeton on August 7
How in the world can you blame a sheriff for what the majority voted for? Me personally, I applaud him for taking a stand against proposed
My point is- Dancing (in pubic) IS a Crime in an establishment.
Checkpoints everywhere (in fact there are even websites dedicated to telling people where to AVOID tio not hit the checkpoints)
Stop and Frisk is all over the place.
-My Point would be that the "Sheriff" isnt worried about violating MY (and your) Constitutional right to an unwarranted search along with a plethora
of other issues-
My point is that KY (at least where I lived and visited) WAS THE WORST POLICE STATE i HAVE EVER SEEN. The only thing about KY that had a hint of
"Freedom" was the gun laws (no registration on handguns etc..) buit everything else was...Insane.
I have never lived somewhere where I was driving around and then motioned into a roadblock while my family was searched, our IDs taken and called in
for warrant checks , etc, etc, with no probable cause (its a State Law)- So where are the Sheriffs screaming about these Violations??? Hmmm, they dont
. In fact, the amount of things Law Enforcement gets away with there is incredible and your rights as a citizen are almost nil.
So My Point would be that we cannot "pick and choose" what parts of the Constitution to follow. I personally agree with the Sheriff on THIS ISSUE- Its
everything else. Why is he standing up for THIS ISSUE while other Constitutional violations run rampant there (in favor of law Enforcement)
EDIT: Yes, it was like Footloose lol- We moved there because my Wife had an awesome job offer running the hanger (a Bar/Restaurant) at the airport. We
had never even known :"Dry" counties still existed (especially since we were moving so she could manage a BAR)- She had to get S.T.A.R.S cert and
learned about the "dancing law" and we were in awe... If someone starts dancing you have to shut the music (Jukebox) and inform them it is Illegal- If
they continue you have to call the Police since the entire establishment can be shut down..
There is also much more to it than a "vote" everyone agrees upon- For one. Felons cannot vote (and getting a "felony" in KY is easier than elsewhere)
so 1/7th (statistically) are exempt from voting- THEN there are the businesses who make a MINT from having a booze monopoly and their "pull" with the
community and Law Enforcement.
Not even going to touch on how the National Guard is used...
Yes, it felt like Footloose- Felt like a whole different world. We bought a gorgeous home on some land and moved there expecting to love it- It
was...Bad... Really bad (and we have lived all over) and I would never go back.
Georgetown and other "Northern KY" areas are also different from my understanding. I lived in SE (London) so that is the extent of my knowledge of the
