Hate to say I told you so, but keep those Kevlar jammies handy

If the courts will not defend the sanctity of our homes, Americans retain the right and duty to do so ourselves.
Back in June, the justices who told us armed goons breaking in our doors in the dark of night were just hunky-dory said we were not without remedies. Why, Justice Anthony Kennedy said our legislatures can intervene if police officers do not “act competently and lawfully.”
Oh, sure. Think a single cop will go to jail for lying on this search warrant affidavit — already a crime in every state?
Not only that (Justice Kennedy explained from his marble palace), people whose homes are wrongly searched can always file a civil rights lawsuit.
Oh, fine. Just tell that to Kathryn Johnston.
In the new Amrka, the inmates have no rights.
War on Drugs?
What a joke. Like the War on Poverty, there is no opposing state. It’s just a war on the Bill of Rights. With us as the victims.
We’re victimized in so many ways: we pay for the “justice” system; we pay to keep a whole lot of people in jail; we pay for gobs of people to watch them; we pay for a literal “army” of drug enforcers; we pay for the gubamint to dole drugs to us on prescriptions; we pay for a slew of drug regulations; and on and on and on.
Even the drug dealers like this current nonsensical system. They use the police to minimize the competition. Where else could they get an armed gang to take out the competition for “free”? No, it’s all cozy. The police get bribed. The politicians can have a straw dog to rail against. And, these drug dealers get rich.
I suggest we sick WalMart on them. Let’s legalize all drugs. Pardon all non-violent “drug offenders”. Shut down the DEA, FDA, and all their ilk. As anyone who has had to compete with WalMart can tell you, drug addicts will be able to buy their drugs for pennies. Young adults, dying from poisons in the illegal drugs or from varying potency, will be saved by WalMart’s insistence on quality. Can’t you just see the opportunities?
We need to end this supposed “war” on drugs. Disempower the gang in Washington from any role in “drugs”. Allow the invisible hand of the marketplace to “nuke” the violent drug gangs. Free the drug companies from any restriction, legislation, regulation, or inspection by anyone. And, terminate any regulation of “health care practitioners”. Certainly, the industry will figure out how to certify its members. Think Underwriters’ Laboratory.
It’ll be easier, cheaper, and a lot safer.
