Deception by omission. That’s their game. We know the union is called “The United States of America”, not “United States”. I think “United States” is short for “United States government”. They just leave out the last part to confuse us.
Or, if I give them the benefit of the doubt, they’re only talking to their employees and then would not need to add ‘government’ to the end when making any type of oral or written statement. It’s not like Walmart managers say “in Walmart company”. They just say, “Here in Walmart, this is how we do the following.”
Keep in mind that their employees or officers are called citizens (as Obama stated).
- They could say, “Citizens are not allowed to use cannabis in the United States.”
- This means, “Officers/employees (citizens) of the United States government are not allowed to use cannabis.”
Does thou work for United States government? Is thou an officer (citizen) of the United States government?
United States also covers the 10-square mile area carved out of Virginia and Maryland (though now smaller) and federal land and forts and ports.
While watching yet another Western with John of the Waynes, this point came to mind. In a court hearing of a commission in the territories, John’s character was defending the Comanche nation elders.
“Am I to gather that the Comanche defy the government of the United States?” says a U.S. government official.
“Yes, you may gather that the Comanche defy the United States government,” says John of the Waynes.
The film also uses phrases such as “these United States” and that the Comanche were considered wards of the United States (like me because they treat me and all of us as bastards.
- The public means government employees! Is thou a member of the public?
- Obama defines citizen as the title of an office in a democracy (not republic)
- Watch McLintock with John of the Waynes on Amazon
- John Wayne’s character was a peace officer, not a policé/policy officer, as shown in True Grit
- They pretend I’m a bastard, create a trust for me, then i never claim it!
- Not a driver? Free to go. Not a person? Free to go.
