Considering yer post of 5/24/11 ...
Our government is at war ... and YOU my friend are it's enemy.
I present to you a patch for the 3% that may want to proclaim the fact that this is a two-way street. Above design ripped from a pin I saw somewhere awhile back ... I think my version has a touch mo' truthiness.
Here is his design:
Art forwards this translation:
Inter arma enim silent leges is a Latin phrase meaning "For among [times of] arms, the laws fall mute," although it is more popularly rendered as "In times of war, the law falls silent." This maxim was likely first written in these words by Cicero in his published oration Pro Milone, although Cicero's actual wording was "Silent enim leges inter arma."
At the time when Cicero used this phrase, mob violence was common. Armed gangs led by thuggish partisan leaders controlled the streets of Rome. Such leaders were nevertheless elected to high offices.
Which, if you think about it, cuts both ways.
Or, put in the vernacular, "Don't start nothin', won't be nothin'."
