Editor’s Note: The Blacksmith shares some thoughts about relying on the court system to determine the direction of the country.
 
Paraphrased from a real interview:
Questioner: Is pillow biter “marriage” protected by the Constitution?
Answer: Yes.
Q: There’s no mention of anything of the sort.
A: But the courts have previously decided there was.
Q: There’s no mention of anything of the sort.
A: It’s covered under the fourteenth amendment.
Q: There’s no mention of anything of the sort.
A: But the courts have previously decided it was.
ad infinitum
In other words; “It Is because we say It Is, irrespective of observable reality.” This is nothing more than law by capricious fiat and the proclivity of leftists to shit their own nests.
A society cannot maintain even the perception of being free without at least the illusion of rule of law. Describing nonsense as “arcane”, “nuanced”, or “complex” and substituting that for logic is in no way long term sustainable. The result of this lack of anything like a firm legal foundation upon which regular folk can depend is increasing disregard for any and all law and, inevitably, the giver and enforcer of said law: The State.
This prevalence of the blatancy of the legal equivalent of a con game, combined with an economy soon to be unable to provide affordable necessities to a large percentage of the populace is, as has occurred many times in the past, sounding the death knell for the State of Lincoln, born of blood, 150 years hence.
Weep not for the Leviathan; there isn’t a thing wrong with its demise. Mourn, instead, those to be crushed in it’s death throes.
