BREAKING NEWS FLASH: Wackaloon Redneck Crackers Unclear On Constitution And US History

Civics is clearly one of the triumphs of the American education system.

Over the weekend, Sheriff Denny Peyman of Jackson County, Kentucky, said that he too will disobey any directive from the administration. He told residents in a townhall meeting that the sheriff has more power than the federal government.

“They need to go back and study that. We are a commonwealth. I can ask federal people to leave, they have to leave. I can ask state people to leave, they have to leave,” he said.

Yeah! Wackaloon sherrif Whitey McFuckewitte has more power than the Federal Govt!!

In Texas, a lawmaker said this week he will introduce legislation that would make it illegal to enforce a federal gun ban.

“At some point there needs to be a showdown between the states and the federal government over the Supremacy Clause,” Republican Rep. Steve Toth told WOAI 1200-AM. “It is our responsibility to push back when those laws are infringed by King Obama.”

I’m pretty sure that “at some point”, oh maybe about 150 years ago?, there was a showdown between the states and the Federal government over the Supremacy Clause. If I recall correctly, it got pretty heated. Anybody remember how that turned out?

    Must be a popular belief in some circles; New Hampshire had a guy running for Sheriff who was going to prosecute people for obeying laws he thought were wrong: http://freethoughtblogs.com/cuttlefish/2012/08/23/nh-sheriff-candidate-would-use-deadly-force-on-law-abiders/

    What was this Civil War of which you speak?

    I think that the crazy gunnies who have spoken up lately indicate that they’re still Lost Causers. People out in Washington and in the northeast should remind these mostly Southerners and Westerners that they live in states that receive more federal $$$ than they contribute, and that especially in the West, a lot of people make a very cheap if not free living by using BLM, NFS, and other public lands owned by the U.S. government.

    I thought we had a whole crisis about that nullification thing?

    No, federal law applies to you. Shut up.

    I suspect each and every instance is one of “all hat, no cattle”.

    Lots of yammering.
