The Law Isn’t Worth the Paper It’s Written On

*** begin quote ***
As Barney Fife said, “Rule Number One: Obey all the rules!” Here in Arkansas, gas pumps bear signs with the stern visage of a state trooper warning potential scofflaws that driving off without paying for gas will cause their drivers’ licenses to be revoked. The assumption, apparently, is that someone who will steal gas without any moral qualm or fear of getting caught, will nevertheless be afraid to drive without a license.

Make all the laws you want.
It’s really a misnomer to call what legislators produce as “laws”. Now the “Law” of Gravity; that’s a real LAW! You can’t break it in most human frames of reference.
We need a new meme that differentiates between: LAWS like gravity and laws like come form Congress.
And, let’s not even get started on “regulations”, which I call diktats.
