And They Want Me to Go to Jury Duty? You Gotta Be Sh*tting ME


The judge in the Bundy trial in Nevada openly laughs in court when the Bundys claim they have constitutional rights.
And they want me to go to jury duty? You gotta be shitting me. No lawyer who has half a mind would want me on a jury box with my intense loathing of the kangaroo court judicial system we are all living in. I no longer have the capabilities to pass judgment on anyone, whether they are innocent or guilty because I lost all respect for the law. We have Judges sitting in court rooms who are knowingly bypassing and failing to uphold the constitution with smirks on their faces. And they want me to go to jury duty? You gotta be shitting me.
Our elected politicians (I call them legal Welfare Queens), approve of the police robbing citizens to pad their budgets. Oh, you have not heard of Civil Asset Forfeiture? You must be watching CNN and all the other fake news media. The police can blatantly kill citizens and their dogs, yes, their dogs too, and get away with Qualified Immunity. Seriously? And they want me to go to jury duty. You gotta be shitting me! - - By Cilla M@Theo Spark

Your Say

Yea, I think I read something like this in the Declaration of Independence -

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to NOT PARTICIPATE."

That'll show 'em!

When I get the jury duty notice I pull up a word doc and edit the date and send it in. That doc states that I will be engaging a 3 month business trip to Europe commencing about 2 weeks prior to the court date.

If anyone wants to hire me for any given pursuit they can do so through common channels and all other will be rejected. No one gets to force me to do their bidding, period.

I go down and check in when I'm called, but I'm immune to jury duty. When I tell the defense lawyer at the screening I'm a retired military pilot, he always gets a look in his eye and nods at his reporter, and I know I'll be going home shortly.

It's easy enough to get out of jury duty- all I have to do is wear one of my American Patriot T-shirts, or an NRA shirt/ballcap. Probably a MAGA hat would work as well, here in deep blue CA, the state of insanity!

These days, though, I try to actually get on the jury. Too many times the "jury of our peers" ends up being people who were too stupid to get out of it, or welfare cheats, minorities with chips on their shoulders, and the like. They just rubberstamp whatever the judge says; and I don't trust the judges at all, at all.

If I have a chance to become a boulder in the path of "progress," then I'm going to take it! If I'm on a jury where some regular citizen has been invaded at 3AM by a SWAT team, and has had all his guns confiscated and his dog shot, while his wife and kids are terrorized- well, no way in hell I'm going to vote to convict him of anything!

Years ago I sat on a jury (and BillH, I am a former-military pilot [although not retired]), and found it to be an interesting experience which I took seriously.

However since then, while I would still take it seriously, I can't help but remember this little story from 2008.....

The image of an Ohio judge in his chambers accompanying the story tells a whole different story than they intended.

Well if any one of US ends up as a defendant for some reason or another, we are going to WANT someone with some wits about them on the jury. All it takes is ONE person to keep someone from going to the pokey.

I once was on jury duty for a drunk driving case. The defendant was a loser, but there was no sobriety field test given and no blood alcohol measurement taken. He said he had two beers and someone ran him off the road. He was a POS, but there was no real evidence. Over half of the jury wanted to burn this guy at the stake. I looked at it as if I were on trial and hoping that I could NOT be convicted of any crime with such little evidence. Think about it folks. What happens when you are the one being judged. You do not necessarily want just the citizens picked out of Wal Mart sitting in judgement.

I serve when called. It's my duty to try to hold the authorities accountable. I would want the same benefit if I were ever accused.
