There should be no tolerance for intolerance … And other laws I'd like to see
Tolerance is the mother who softens the harshness of father's strict adherence to the rules. Since
nobody's perfect, lawmakers and judges should guard against legal surprises never anticipated by
lawmakers. This isn't rewriting the decrees but interpretation in the highest sense of the word so
the law can accomplish its original intent.
"Who can say "I have purified my heart, I am free of sin? There is no
man on earth so righteous that he never sins!" Proverbs 20:9
Below are some suggestions for lawmakers and judges to bring about a more just country:
Intolerance-Justice should be based on each case and circumstance involving current law
and precedent. The idiotic case of six-year-old Zachary Christie is akin to the type of lack
of foresight that has parents throughout the land scratching their heads. Zachary had NO
CLUE he was committing a crime with a nonflexible sentence of 45 days in a reform
school. His crime? As a proud new Cub Scout, he brought a multifaceted eating and tool
utensil to his school to show his little friends. Conclusion? When you're out of school it's
much easier to make ridiculous rules you would have never tolerated or obeyed when YOU
were young and vulnerable.
Tort reform-I'm not just talking medical malpractice reform, but the farce the legal
profession has played out for the last century by lining their pockets with phony and
fraudulent suits should outrage everyone. Lawyers who knowingly represent frauds
should be punished, fined, suspended and disbarred for continued abuse. Literally
$trillions could be saved from bankrupted businesses, prices passed on to consumers,
increased insurance policies, unemployment costs and defensive overkill. Also, real cases
could be heard in a timely manner without the rubbish that currently clogs the system.
Political Term limits-Give 'em five terms in the house and two terms in the senate.
Then elect someone else. Professional politicians are bane to the system and the original
intent of our founders. The longer they're in DC, the more regal they regard themselves.
Recently town halls were filled with disrespected citizens by these uncivil servants.
Pork-Spending attached to other bills accounts for $billions in deceptive theft in the
system. If you want federal tax spending for a state project it must pass on its own
Judge term limits-No judge, unless elected, should be on the bench longer than ten years.
A lifetime is too long. As people age they get dementia, Alzheimer's, big egos.
Hate crimes-Get rid of them. A crime is a crime. Hate crimes beg to kill the first
amendment. It's thought and speech control.
Political Lie limits-Each politician would be allowed 10 per elected term. Those passing
the 10 lie limit will be subject to special election.
Transparency-So many promises on this subject that, concurrent to law number seven
becoming retroactive, Obama would have been up for reelection in his first two months in
office. No closed door meetings, bills on the Net five days before voting and all
negotiations done on C-Span, including Republicans, were promised. Hmmmm. That
sounds familiar. Where did I hear that, Mr. President? Everyone in key spots in
government, including "czars," must go through a rigorous vetting process before congress.
Congressional De-Royalty Act-Make Congress subject to the same laws they pass on
to us, including HC. Congressmen must pay their Federal Income Tax. If they haven't
paid or come to some accommodation, they can't run or serve.
Redistribution of Capitalism Act-Cut the bogus theft of working people and
entrepreneurs and get Americans back to work. This is especially important for minorities,
many of whom are now led to believe their goal in life is to live off other taxpayers.
The Lead no Child to Indoctrination Act-Songs, plays, poems, essays in school naming
any politician, or any policy except as described in the Constitution is prohibited. Can
you imagine if kids were forced to sing songs in praise of Dubya and/or his policies?
No government takeover of private business-Wait. That's already IN the Constitution!
Anti-Genocide Against Seniors Act-Guess they're gonna have to start over on HC.
They were counting on Granny and Gramps to forego treatment and jump in their graves.
Little Zachary, and all other children of every color and wealth should grow up to be whatever
they desire, as long as they're willing to work and sacrifice.
No one should rely on other taxpayers for their living.
The tolerance laid out in our Constitutional rights provides for our recovery if we can just get big
ugly government out of our way.
