The Federal Government, with all of its power, cannot act without proper authority under the law. We have a Justice Department with thousands of lawyers and employees whose whole purpose is to investigate crime and corruption and ensure that our citizens rights are protected and that no person, company, organization or any thing else can act against us without acting within our laws. We even have a court system, that is separate from the law enforcement branch and the justice branch, so that it too can act completely independently and as a further check and balance, protecting our precious rights. All of this combines to make a system that gives us great pride and confidence.
Unfortunately somebody has forgotten to explain all of this to the ex-law professor in the White House or to his Attorney General. Three years ago, General Motors was effectively nationalized; we would have never believed it. That is not nearly the end of it. News of injustices keep coming. Black Panthers are not charged with wrongdoing by the U.S. Department of Justice because their crimes are against white citizens. The bondholders of GM are stripped of their assets without due process by the government. Governmental leaders are bribed in full view only to have all investigation of the crimes stifled by the Attorney General. The U.S. borders are overrun with crime and illegal activity and our political leaders act as if it is important to protect the lawbreakers while the innocent are killed and overrun. When local communities attempt to enforce the law, they are ridiculed and threatened as racists and bigots. They are sued by the very administration entrusted with protecting them and enforcing the law. Our coasts are being destroyed by oil while the President only acts to protect the unions and press his “cap and trade” agenda.
Without the rule of law, our U.S. Constitution is in danger. Without the rule of law our beloved America is swiftly becoming a country where only the well connected and politically powerful will be safe. As hard as it is to even imagine, a culture of corruption has replaced honest government.
There is only one way this problem is going to be fixed -- massive citizen action. All citizens that see what is happening and want to restore their right to be treated fairly and equally, must come together and demand that the favoritism, the bribes, the uneven enforcement of law end ---and end now!
Yes, it can and is happening, right here in America! It is time we held our government to account! Action must be taken in the coming mid-term election and in the next Presidential election. We must vote out every politician who has had any part, by act or omission in this usurpation of our Constitution; this abuse or our rights as citizens; and this failure to protect our property and our environment.

A friend requested that I post a couple of pictures of one of my favorite Texas hang-outs - Billy Bobs - if you ever get a chance, it is a must see, fun place!
Also, here is a clip from a 1960's classic favorite of mine (I have had many a drink listening to this one):
