What Is Wrong With People?


The biggest problem with politicians, regardless of party or what they say, is that they do believe that once they are in office, they are above the law and better than you or I. When a politician gets a DUI, which, as you know I believe is attempted murder, they should resign. Period. No debate, no discussion, no further argument. I am even willing to wait until they plead it down to Wet & Reckless, but the point is, they have lost the public trust and they should have the personal conviction and courage to do the right thing. Instead, they choose to twist intentions, rules, laws and even their own words until they manage to portray themselves as the victim.

KY State Sen Brandon Smith

We’ve seen this here in California with Senator Ben Hueso, but we aren’t alone. In Kentucky, a State Senator was popped for DUI. His argument? It isn’t that he “didn’t do it,” or even that he could plead it down to whatever the equivalent of Wet & Reckless is in Kentucky.

Nope, he is claiming “Immunity” under the Constitution. Yep. He is claiming that section 43 of the State Constitution, which mirrors Article 1 section 6 of the US Constitution, EXEMPTS SITTING LEGISLATORS FROM ARREST, except for treason, felony or breach of the peace. This losers argument is a legal machination designed to excuse him from doing what would put you or I, were we to visit the beautiful Commonwealth of Kentucky, in jail.

And he’s doing it with a straight face.

So when you ask me “What’s wrong with the Country?” Now you know…
