Law & Disorder--Speaking of the Devil, Sheriff Just Drove Past New Starbucks, Where I Am at 6:41 A.M.
If you read my second, and late night blog last night, this will make more sense to you . . . sting opts, bus riders, and bus driver's mothers, not common customers, after an early morning of strange looking government looking guys, same later, with Indian trackers, McDonald's . . . but I was going to write this very nice, complimentary blog today, making comments of the proposed bond for the allegedly needed new addition to the jail down in Lakeside, and the funny alleged crimes of Kalispell, Columbia Falls, and Whitefish, with the FBI just reporting crime statistics, with Kalispell and Columbia Falls being the safest communities to live in, it is those 27 firearms per household in the Flathead, the reddest county in Montana . . . great, I go from the reddest county in Utah, to the reddest county in Montana! You might wonder why Whitefish wasn't included in the safe city category . . . I am just speculating, because I am not one who is confused with the facts, I actually read them and agree with them, Democrats don't believe as much in 2nd amendment rights, as their more conservative neighbors on both sides, possibly gun control issues, or an occasional out of state tourist, who hit on a local's wife, and got shot last year, if I remember the facts and the case, a semi-famous Texan, of some sort, not uncommon up here!
In fact, with David Letterman, having a ranch outside of Great Falls, I wondered if Dave was an undercover cop in Kalispell, writing the Law Enforcement Roundup each day in the Daily Inter Lake, or the Flathead County Beacon, Police Blogger, or perhaps the hilarious, monthly, funniest cop reports, called Law and Disorder, with great headlines, like WHO'S COMPLAINING? A desk clerk at hotel on U.S. 93 South in Kalispell reported there was a naked woman in a hallway banging on people's doors. The woman made it back to her room and got dressed. She was warned that she would be kicked out if there were further complaints. --Sept. 9. Or Black bear continues to cause mischief: A mischievous Whitefish-area bear stopped in town yet again, probably lured by the good time at the Great Northern Oktoberfest in Depot Park. A man on Iowa Avenue first reported the bear heading toward town on the train tracks like a hair, hibernating hobo. Several calls came into police about the bear arriving on the north side of the train depot on Depot Street and peering at the festival-goers next door in the park. LOL!
Real Crime . . . True Crime? Extending the Jail?
Forty years ago, when I was a new bride, and lived around 2nd South and 9th East, Salt Lake City, Utah, there was a tenant shot, in the apartments across the street. Actually, I think, I was engaged to be married, so my soon to be husband, brought a shot gun to the apartment, because we had two weeks or so to the marriage when this little virgin, was living in the apartment alone for a week or day, but I remember him showing me how to use the rifle, and told me to shot anyone who came through the door. Luckily, the firearm remained in the corner by the front door. On another occasion, I got pissed because my new husband, asked me if I couldn't cook something other than Swenson's Chickpot Pies, frozen . . . my response, okay, if you don't like them, you cook! All you do is take them out of the box and stick them in the oven, so why are you offended?
Just because I was . . . and I stormed out of the door, went for a walk, soon to be followed by a slow creeping car, with an even creepier guy, following me down a street, continuing into an alley in Salt Lake City, stupid move, since he followed me there too, scaring the hell out of me, opting to cook rather than get raped, molested, assaulted or murdered on the streets around out apartment, up by the University of Utah, and that wasn't even close to the worst areas of Salt Lake back in 1974. Later, my friends who managed an apartment building around the corner, also had a shooting, so, when I read the three above mentioned police reports, I had a super hard time, believing these were anything more than a joke! REALLY, are these for real? I thought they were a joke, until I got to know the make up of these wonderful communities and the Montana culture!
FIRST DAY AS ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL--SHOCK VALUE!
Seeing the throats of a woman and her baby, slit, then her body being thrown up against the wall, with a huge bloody smear, after being dragged across the floor, with a great loss of blood there also, and an inmate at the Utah State Prison, stabbed 67 times by three other inmates, caught on surveillance cameras . . . this hardly seems like the place to put more money into the jail system! Even in Utah, the mentality of Field of Dreams, build it and they will come, in the smaller communities, was a joke, with the thought of getting state and federal monies for housing state prisoners . . . I don't know if you want to bring that element to your safe communities, and I know, that tax payers got stuck footing the bill, when there were not enough state inmates, to fill the new cells in their empty new jails . . . really think this one out, you don't want to attract crime! You don't need cops, prosecutors, and legislators creating new crimes, to fill jail cells!
Don't get me wrong, I love the low crime, and the reports are hysterical, love them . . . but, Lake Side is even smaller than either Kalispell or Columbia Falls, do you really think these crimes are worthy of lock up. One last week, cracked me up, someone reported someone driving around, I think Columbia Falls, with a live deer in their car, legs kicking . . . kind of like the old John Candy movie, with that little comedian, can't remember his name, but they hit a deer and it ends up in the back seat of their car, while they are screaming, and the deer is flailing around in the back, ripping wholes in the roof of their car . . . so funny. That is all I could think of when reading this police report, but it ended with the caller, stating, that it might be, in fact a large dog! LOL! Anyway, these three reports are worth reading, so funny, so fresh, so, to me, not even in the realm of crime classifications, that truth makes reason stare as to why, Lake Side, would need $17 million, for an extension on the jail, that just had one 8 years ago . . . who's pocketing the money?
Chameleons, Cross-Dressers & Constitutional Law Attorneys
The only pet I ever had was a chameleon, I got in California, at a Dodgers/Angels game, as I recall, you know the kind of lizards that turn the color of whatever you place them on, like trees, plants, dirt, etc., well I didn't like cats, dogs, birds, maybe a horse, but they say people start to look or act like their pets, we are all familiar with the plastic surgery nightmare of the woman who wanted to look like a cat, and she did, people look like the breed of dogs they chose, and I guess you would say, that my pet, may have been symbolic of my ability to be a political cross-dresser, so to say, in fact, I saw a cross-dresser, the day after I joined the Democratic Women's organization in the Flathead, and laughed, that is what they must think of me . . . well on the one had, that could be true, I can swing either way, Republican, as seen in my statements on gun control, with I disagree with, or woman's reproductive rights, which I also agree with. My liberal friends think I am too conservative, and my conservative friends think I am too liberal . . . a religious, political
I was sitting with a guy in Missoula, I thought the liberal mecca of Montana, but the Daily Inter Lake, posted that Butte, was the bluest of the blue counties in Montana, with big labor, unions, and whatnot, but I was out for a walk the first day I was in Missoula, and this very tall, blonde, with a dog, a mini-skirt and much better looking legs than mine, buzzed past me, actually, over by the Sheriff Department, and then, another black, guy, gal, with a short skirt, again, better legs, a mini-skirt, kind of kilt, like skirt, earrings, hat, and make-up, walked by . . . so, I turned to the guy and said, was that, what I think it was . . . yeah, he responded, I was going to get a sex change too, but I ran out of money! He laughed, so I assumed that was a joke? I am from Utah, only in Utah are you that innocent! I am listening to Wild Cherry, Play that Funky Music Mix, YouTube, recommendation, funky music, God's Revolver, Maraloka, my son's kind of music, play that funky music white boy, play that funky music til you die! . . . guess what is playing right now, YMCA! LOL! I actually saw the Village People, do a concert in Provo, Utah, and it was actually one of the most active, talk about cops, firefighters, sailors, and hard-hat guys, I think, that was 20 years ago, fun concerts I have even been too . . . fun, fun, fun . . . young man, I was once in your shoes, there's a place there called the YMCA, it's fun to stay at the YMCA, they have everything for you to enjoy, you can hang out with all the boys . . . YMCA!
UNDERSTAND THE NATURE OF THE BEAST!
As a constitutional law attorney, I have absolutely now preconceived notions of how a particular constitutional analysis, like analyzing the water compact, will actually turn out, nor do I care, because I took an oath to preserve, defend and protect, that document, not predetermine the outcome and make it fit one political party, or ranchers, native Indians, Republicans or Democrats, I take the issue, read the applicable articles, sections, amendments, and that is where I start. Then I proceed from there, to treaties, like the Hell gate Treaty of 1855, the controlling document, that post dates, the U.S. Constitution, so it has to stay within the controlling document for this nation, making treaties with foreign nations, a nation within a nation, like the Indian Nation! The ranchers don't win, the Indians don't win, the treaty is a perfect, contract, compact, and can't be improved upon, nor should it . . . the Indians just need to quantify the amount of water they need for the use and benefit of the land on the reservation, taking into consideration, anticipated growth.
All people, with water rights, up to 1973 to 1983, had ten, fucking years, to go to their county recorders and record their water rights . . . ranchers, farmers, Indians, and organizations under the U.S. government who represented Indians, and if you can't just do that in ten years, you are not smart enough to have water rights! It is kind of like the New Testament story of the talents, one put them under a bushel to hide them, the other two used their talents, and got more, and the really faithful servant, multiplied his talents, and got even more! You just, can't, regardless of nationality, just fucking sit on your water rights, or any property right for that matter! As in any legal analysis, it is the constitutional provisions, the treaties, the statutes the legislature passes, the regulations, codes, ordinances, and rule making process that decides where the analysis should go, NOT ME! Like I said, this is not the law according to JoAnn! As either a Republican or Democrat, Liberatarian, all of which I agree in part, and disagree in part, I am just going the women, who at first glance and introduction, seem to fit my lifestyle and personality best, as the Republican women did with sister, Shelley, aka, JoAnn, want that resume, name, degree, credentials, to give the power punch a biologist couldn't . . . but she is much more like you women, as is Rachel . . . you surely could tell I was not a true Republican, because I actually, factually, and legally told you what the fucking law IS!
I don't give Republican or Democrat legal analysis. PERIOD! I have no allegiance to anything, other than the U.S. or state Constitutions, as they stand, and I, interpret them, with a fairly good education, interest, and ability to do, without any regard, or giving a rat's ass, how it turns out, with my allegance to the document itself . . . not people, personalities, causes, claims, candidates, judges, cops, prosecutors, or presidents! I do find it ironic, that in just a few days, after joining the Democrats, for obvious reasons, conflict of lies, deceit, fraud, and identity theft, which is all okay for the party line . . . and days after, U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, resigned, as the 4th longest acting AG in the nation's history, who would chew your asses for the hate crimes the discriminatory acts, of civil rights violations . . . the cops amp up their actions, attempts to intimidate, threats, and sting opts . . . like you may not get someone, who like Holder, who will rip you an new ass, for civil rights violations and hate crimes, especially for exercising constitutional rights, to think, say, and do whatever I want, within the law!
