"hereby ordered", that doesn't leave much room for interpretation. Did US industry get nationalized while I wasn't looking?
The trump thing has truly lost it ..

Just enjoy the ride.


He very much reminds me of Harpo, constantly blows his own horn and never says anything of substance.

HOWEVER... we have existing law on the books that prohibits many such things (malum prohibitum crime laws which I fully oppose) and until those laws are changed or repealed, the President and the Executive branch have the constitutional authority to enforce those existing laws.


I want ALL drug laws repealed. I want ALL gun laws repealed (except that one cannot posses a firearm while they are incarcerated for committing a malum in se crime against another) because I believe them to be unconstitutional. I believe EVERY malum prohibitum law, regulation or ordinance is unconstitutional because it infringes upon an individual's natural right to free choice, free will. As long as what they do or don't do doesn't encroach upon the rights or property of another, no one should have any say in what an individual chooses to do. THAT is my utopia... but just because I don't agree with many/most existing laws does NOT mean I can willfully violate them without expecting the consequences associated with violating that law.


Change the existing laws. Repeal any and all malum prohibitum crime laws. Until then, expect to obey those laws or be punished if you are caught violating them.

I'm asking you. You chose to create an OP where you deliberately left out that part of his message.



Are you wanting people to profiteer off drugs that are killing kids?

Private shipping companies cannot just open packages much less confiscate without grounding in law. That is what customs and various other federal agencies are there to do.

Why do you completely ignore his lame attempts to exert power he doesn't wield?

Like the American distributors of opioids? Or should we just enjoy the hypocrisy of a man and family that's manufactured their own goods in China suddenly being concerned?
