Go To Jail...

…do not pass go, do not collect $200.

Kim Davis, Clerk of the Court, Rowan County Kentucky

Kim Davis went to jail for refusing to uphold federal law (not a law passed by an elected legislature, but a law that is a ruling by judges).  Because Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to same-gender couples, some same-gender couples did not get a marriage certificate from the county.

Ed Lee, Mayor of San Francisco

Ross Mirkarimi, Sheriff of San Francisco County

Ed Lee and Ross Mirkarimi did not go to jail for refusing to uphold federal law (a law passed by an elected legislature).  Because Lee and Mirkarimi refused to turn over previously deported felons in their custody - Kate Steinle is dead.

The ObamaNation picks and chooses its laws and it's lawlessness. While I believe that Ms. Davis was obliged to follow the law or resign her job, I believe that ALL public servants should be so constrained. Yeah, what a joke, right? I'm old fashioned.

And then there is Hillary...
