The rise of fascism: A new study has found that five Gulf Coast states have so many vague environmental laws that anyone who does anything outdoors can be found guilty of something.

And it has happened. Read the article.

Then there’s this good news: “Any federal regulation enacted by Congress or executive order…offending the constitutional rights of my citizens will not be enforced by me or my deputies.”

Update: A second Oregon sheriff has joined the first in declaring he will not enforce any federal regulation that violates the Constitution.

    Whats wrong with these people, the president is only doing whats “right” and whats best for the

    kids.

  • Maybe these items should be placed under “The Day of Reckoning Looms”. It seems like we’re in a race to see which will fail first: the economy, or society. A credible argument can be made that society has already failed, and we’re just running on momentum.

    A 16 trillion dollar economy is BIG and has a lot of momentum, in addition when your

    currency is the reserve currency of the world you can be cavalier about how much money you

    spend and create. And that is where Americas real power lies, we are the reserve currency of the

    world and the FED controls our interest rate not the market.

    How long will that last ?

    Sounds like a easy to topple house of cards. If OPEC decides to price oil based on a non $ currency, of the fed ups interest rates, or China etc can’t extend us more credit (who really thinks we can/will pay back 16-20 trillion?), all fall down.

  • The sheriff of Washington county, OR, (where I live), has announced that his department won’t enforce proposed Federal legislation that he believes deprive citizens of 2nd Amendment rights. If Dear Leader had spent more time in the private sector instead of ‘community organizing’, he might have learned that one of the basic rules of leadership is not to make unenforcable policy. To do so invites loss of credibility. It’s one thing be thought weak by your opponents, but to be seen as such by your supporters is quite another.

    This situation (local refusal to enforce Federal law) reminds me of a similar but opposite occurrence (Federal agency refusal to enforce state law) when I lived in St. Petersburg. In the late ’80’s/early ’90’s Florida passed a law requiring boats down to 15′ to be registered. This meant that a fair number of canoes, dories, skiffs, and other small boats would have to be registered. The Coast Guard publicly (and in a way that made clear what they thought of the law) announced that it wasn’t going to enforce that law, and a lot of legislators looked stupid.
