Re: Constitution 'optional'...

The "law" is only a loose guideline for the rich and powerful.

Whether or not they pay attention or need to adhere to it depends on the competence of their legal representation.

Little People generally have to grovel before the tyrant.

Like the difference created by the use of an apostrophe.

For example;

The acceptable "Let's eat, Grandma" vs the cannibalistic "Let's eat Grandma"

Your use of the apostrophe is correct in both cases, but the comma certainly makes a difference.

Re: JACKALOPE

I was hunting outside Yuma, AZ back around '83 and encountered a large Jack.

Took 3 shots at near point blank range from my Mini-14 to slow the critter, and then a butt-stroke to the head to keep him off of me and put him down.
