The Great Decider

(Cartoonist - Joel Pett)

In other news, the Oregon state Justice Department is investigating the behavior of a local sheriff who apparently greeted the Bundy militiamen with open arms. There's also this:

One of the other militants who met with [Sheriff Glenn Palmer], Jon Ritzheimer of Arizona, said he was one of those who met with Palmer. He said he and Payne autographed Palmer's pocket copy of the Constitution at the sheriff's request. Ritzheimer also is facing a federal charge for his role in the occupation.

A pocket copy of the Constitution. Jesus shit.

Meanwhile, the National Sheriffs’ Association executive director has denounced Beyonce's Superbowl half-time show and "Formation" music video because it incites violence against cops, he says.

And finally, police officers in Tampa, Florida apparently don't want to provide security for a sold-out Beyonce concert because she's anti-cop. Or something.

Beyonce's Formation is about appreciating your heritage, being proud of who you are and where you came from. It's about using the power you have and standing up for yourself. It has nothing to do with killing cops. Racist police seem to think being black and proud and standing up for your fellow citizens means you're "anti-cop." I wonder why that is.

    This is one of the things I have against Justice Scalia and his pronouncements from the bench. He has given people like this the idea that any kind of exercise of federal authority in their states is somehow illegitimate. So they take over a wildlife refuge, terrorize the town and poop in a trench.
    I can guarantee that that is not what the framers of the Constitution had in mind when they crafted the Constitution of the United States.
