When it comes to the Martial Arts…‘The Law, sir, is a ass!’
A humble opinion stated in great literature. And if you know which literature, you are good.
But, that said, let’s talk about the law, and then about the law and the martial arts, and then see if you agree.
Think not? Then take a gander at some of these laws.
In Pesshtigo, WI, you are not allowed to practice Karate on the sidewalk. Dangerous, you know. Might chop somebody’s eye out. Might fall through a window. Clumsy you.
In Yateswille, NY, it is definitely against the law to ride an ugly horse when going to a martial arts competition. I guess you have to put a bag over the head of your horse. But then they’d probably just write a law about blind horses or something.
in Halstead, KS, men may not take karate unless he gets written permission from his wife. Unless, of course, he has been married over 12 months.
I came across these, and a slew of other laws, on the net. I know, I should probably should check my sources.
Except, I decided to write this article regardless, and for the following reason.
Your president, the one you elected is currently running the country by Executive Order. For those of you who don’t know, Executive orders are legal by constitution amendment. This was done in 1874, so that the president could better rehabilitate the country because the country wasn’t getting rebuilt fast enough after the civil war.
Now, I think that there may be a problem with this, and I urge you to write your city, county, state, national delegate and demand that they vote executive orders off the books.
After all, President Obama has a free hand, and is legally empowered to write executive orders making immigration legal, confiscating all bullets, and having the Koran read at the beginning of congressional sessions.
But that all said, make sure you get a letter from your wife before riding a horse to compete in a karate contest on the sidewalk.
