Michael Phelps and The Law

First of all, screw The Law. I have absolutely no respect for laws, their enslaving results and those who enforce them.

Second, Michael Phelps–the gold medalist swimmer–owns Michael Phelps. Senators don’t own him. The President doesn’t own him. His neighbors don’t own him. The newspapers don’t own him. Richland County (SC) Sheriff, Leon Lott, certainly doesn’t own him, either.

Michael Phelps owns Michael Phelps, exclusively, so Michael Phelps should be able to decide what Michael Phelps will do with–or put into–his body. If government owns his body, government can dictate what Michael can do with his body. If not, SHUT UP AND GET OFF HIS CASE about the picture of him looking as though he is taking a bong hit at a private college party.

I absolutely HATE drugs and alcohol, and I have never used either of them, but I believe in freedom and self-ownership. Sheriff Leon Lott just doesn’t want to let it go, unfortunately.

In my personal opinion, I feel that Mr. Lott is simply trying to make a name for himself on the national stage. What other reason can there be, because of all the time and trouble it will be to gather any kind of credible evidence upon which to build a case–all for misdemeanor charges?

Actually, Mr. Lott is making a name for himself, in certain circles, but not the kind of name he wants.

Sheriff Lott has been on TV and radio saying he wants to get tough on “crackheads” and other local issues, so it’s no surprise to me that he is now on this ridiculous campaign against Michael Phelps.

Apparently, we’ve put an end to rape, murder, theft and other such crimes, since Mr. Lott’s department is putting so much time and effort into chasing a celebrity who allegedly smoked something in a pipe that hasn’t received the government’s official stamp of approval.

This country has become a nation of self-righteous busybodies, and it’s this busybody quality that has led us down the road away from freedom toward totalitarianism, with more laws, jails, rules, ordinances, regulations, codes, permits, licenses, taxes, fees, fines, etc.

Freedom is the one thing that you have to give to others in order to be sure you can have it for yourself. With that in mind, be sure to make a contribution, today and everyday.
