"You are to do as I say not as I do"
I remember very vividly when I was young my
mother slapping me upside the head for repeating something I had heard her say,
often I wasn't quite sure what is was it meant, but it made me feel more grown
up repeating her. More times than not she'd give me a surprised look followed
closely by "the slap" and say, "You are to do as I say not as I
do". My response was more like why did she do that, rather worrying about being
Now as an adult the familiar experience of
being told, "You are to do as I say not as I do", but this time it's
not my mother, it's congress. Recently Sen. Feinstein proposed sweeping new gun restrictions limiting more
of my 2nd amendment rights. Reading through the proposal it I started to get
that familiar feeling as I read that all these new restrictions would not apply
to any former or current law enforcement officers, nor any federal officials,
including of course Sen. Feinstein.
Clear as day I could
hear my mother saying, "You are to do as I say not as I do", and half
expecting the feel of the follow up slap upside my head by Sen. Feinstein.
