Hope that clears up YOUR confusion..
I never took Government 101, so I've no idea what it covers. What I know of it was covered in Criminal Law and Constitutional Law courses.
Now that I'm suitable impressed and mortified by your credentials, I'm not sure I've any business at all even speaking to you. Can I get you a cup of coffee or something?
Please excuse me now. If I don't hurry up, I'm going to be late for my remedial reading class.
Let me re-read it again... maybe my remedial reading classes are helping...
I probably don't have any credentials - at least I don't recall mentioning any here, so whether I have any or not is irrelevant. Merely having lived a rough life at times, or having slept through a couple of courses, can't even begin to compare to being degreed.
Yeah. I'm gonna completely dodge it again, too. It's reminiscent of a kid who keeps asking "why" to every answer you can give them, or reminiscent of a politician who asks what the meaning of "is" is. it's a question that should answer itself with a quick trip to a dictionary to find the definition of "peer". Since I'm sure you must already know what a peer is, then the question is merely a repetition of "why?"

Mentioning that I have a "cabinet" might not be the best way to go about convincing someone that I'm not "the man" and that I don't work for the government...
Well, mentioning a degree where I come from is bragging, which is why I never mention whether I've got one or not.Furthermore, no one I know mentions having a degree merely in passing - it's always an attempt to impress, and is always suspect as to relevance when they don't mention the field it's in.
Now then, in regards to your question, I've already answered it - if you are talking about the question of who is qualified to judge a person... and the answer certainly doesn't involve mob dynamics.

it's getting darn scary isn't it? This is no longer a coincidence.... not in the slightest.
If its the government? We have a more than serious problem added to many already serious problems...
If its an individual? That someone is a cold blooded murderer who needs locked up behind bars...
