cowboypoet BS: Bushwacked - FIVE (102* d) RE: BS: Bushwacked - FIVE 06 Feb 01

Dear Guest,

"You know, Cowboypoet, as well as I that it is not 'that' simple and given Ashcroft the same plate the result would not be any different. "

I *don't* know that, and unless you are intimately acquainted with John Ashcroft neither do you.

Vinny, or David, or whatever you want to call him, was reprehensible in every way I can think of. However, so far as I know none of the other people who were incinerated was officially charged with any kind of crime. Some charges may have arisen from the shooting of the over-zealous "officers of the law", but we'll never know, and the Branch Davidians who died will never be able to tell their side of it to a jury of their peers, will they?

"The Atty General had very good reasons to act! More power to her long arm of the law. "

Spoken like a true fascist.

"Ruby Ridge. Well that one is very suspect, since all the man had to do was allow a Sherrif to inspect his weapons and papers."

He didn't have the opportunity to do so. They shot first and served the warrants later.

"There has to be some control on the insanity that seems to be so accepted these days."

Especially that perpetrated by the jack-booted thugs in the former Attorney General's employ.

"Yes one has a right to own a Gun but that does not include the right to murder innocent people with it."

True. Tell me, whom did Randy Weaver's wife murder? Or his 14-year-old son? Does associating with an alleged malefactor make you subject to a spontaneous sentence of death without any kind of due process of law? If so, you might want to make sure none of your friends has attracted the attention of the BATF or the FBI.

"There must be some control, amend the Constitution what ever it takes."

Whatever it takes? That was Janet Reno's philosophy, and look what happened to people who ran afoul of her and her trigger-happy minions. Ashcroft has historically shown himself to be a strict constitutionalist. Maybe that's what scares the left-wingers so much.

"Clinton and morality."

Now there's an oxymoron. If you don't hold "President" Clinton to a higher moral standard, why hold President Bush to one?

In the interests of full disclosure, I had little use for either of the candidates in the recent election. But if I have to choose between riding a dumb horse and a mean one, I know which I'll put my saddle on.

Pray continue this thread without me. I have happier things to think about.
