Every time I say that I’m not going to write today, invariably, that’s exactly what I wind-up doing, which by no means is a punishment, since it seems that next to being with Anne, Stryker, April the Cat and the Horses . . . this is what I like doing the best.
So, when I woke-up this morning . . . I was resolved to do very little of anything, except to polish my Motorcycle, and then prepare for an extremely BITTER-SWEET afternoon EULOGY and get-together amongst Family, Neighbors and Friends of the Late Linda Roberts at her home, who I wrote about on July 29, 2016 . . .
AND THEN I GOT AN EMAIL FROM A READER WHO LIVES IN HOUSTON:
The Email spelled-out CHARGES and a JUDGMENT for Contempt of Court targeted at America’s TOUGHEST, and most beloved Sherriff, JOE ARPAIO of Arizona’s Maricopa County.
I say that Arpaio is the TOUGHEST and most beloved Sherriff in America, but there’s another Sheriff giving Arpaio a run for his money, who’s Sherriff DAVID CLARK of Milwaukee County Wisconsin.
BUT BACK TO ARPAIO:
ARPAIO’S CRIME . . . is protecting the people of his County from Bad Guys and ILLEGAL Immigrants, but mostly, because he’s been accused and found guilty of PROFILING and detaining people who have NO RIGHT TO BE IN THE USA.
The Judgment against Arpaio . . . is all about his decision to ignore a Judge’s Order, NOT to PROFILE men and women he thought SHOULD NOT be in the United States.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T KNOW:
Joe Arpaio has been the Sherriff of Maricopa County Arizona, since 1993 (23-Years). He’s won handedly in all his elections; he beat back TWO RECALL MOVEMENTS AGAINST HIM, and has survived more LEFTIST HIT PIECES in the Media, than anyone else I know of, perhaps with the exception of Trump.
The reason the 2-Recall attempts didn’t work against Arpaio . . . is because close to 75% of the County refused to sign them, and 66% of the County love the guy.
ALSO – IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW . . . ARPAIO IS 84-YEARS OLD AND STILL GOING STRONG:
So here’s a PERFECT illustration of what’s become WRONG with America.
The people of Conservative Maricopa County, have repeatedly elected a TOUGH GUY SHERRIFF, who they REALLY like and trust for more than 23-Years.
Arpaio keeps his Constituents SAFE. He does exactly what he says he’s going to do. He does NOT CODDLE PRISONERS regardless of race, religion, gender and national origin. And he does what the Federal Government should be doing in terms of Border Patrol, and dealing with ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, which they do not do.
BUT MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL – IS THAT . . . HE IS WHO THE PEOPLE WANT:
SO WHAT’S THE PROBLEM? I guess the problem, is that the LEFTIST Courts, which include much, if not most of the Courts in the United States of America today, don’t seem to give a Rat’s Ass as to what the people want. SINCE IT’S BECOME AN ISSUE OF WHAT THE COURTS WANT.
The divide between the Government, just about all the Governments, regardless of size and jurisdiction – and the People, has become such a wide Chasm, that the system has lost the commonality that was created in 1776, between the People and their Elected Representatives.
IT IS AN EXTREMELY SAD COMMENTARY . . .
When one considers . . . that the speech delivered by Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg, on November 19, 1863, which highlighted . . . “OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, AND FOR THE PEOPLE” . . . bears no resemblance to the TRUTHS of today, as we are witnessing in our Courts, and amongst all levels of Government, that the Government and Bureaucrats are so far removed from the meaning of the Gettysburg Address, as to make the WORDS OF LINCOLN IRRELEVANT.
And that is in itself a TRAGEDY of enormous Concern.
It is quite remarkable, I’m certain, that if I was to ask most young people (Millennials), who was it that said the following? . . . “Of the People, By the People, and For the People”, they wouldn’t know.
If I was to tell them that it was Abraham Lincoln, and then ask where he said it, and under what context . . . they wouldn’t know that either.
But I think much worse than that . . . if I asked them what those words really meant to the American People, I don’t think they would have a clue. And if they did, I seriously doubt they would really understand the importance of the message, and could not relate it to the situation of today.
IN FACT . . . SHERRIFF JOE ARPAIO IS BEING PUNISHED BECAUSE . . .
The Sherriff of Maricopa County . . . is performing his DUTIES as the People’s ELECTED representative, to provide Law, Order, and Safety at the demand – “Of the People, By the People, and For the People”, and not at the whim of the Courts and the Bureaucrats.
THE GREAT IRONY . . .
Is that the people who have the MOST TO LOSE . . . by not understanding the INITIAL Relationship and COVENANT between the Government and the People, are those who stand opposed, or are ignorant of the Freedoms that once made America Great, and are now being lost on the Altar of Big Government, controlled by Special Interests.
If Trump wins in November that could all change . . . and if Trump doesn’t win in November, it could also change . . . but in a different and far more unpleasant way.
