THE most powerful smoking gun we have found to
date, is the statement by Justice Cox, of the
D.C. Supreme Court, circa 1898, admitting to
the Columbia Historical Society that two (2)
parallel sets of federal codes emanated from
President Andrew Johnson's 3-man code revision
team. One applied within the federal zone;
the other was written to given the APPEARANCE
that it applied within the several states.

Justice Cox was appalled, because he was
convinced that Congress had NO authority
whatsoever to issue the latter, general
set of codes for enforcement within the
several states of the Union, even though
Congress DID have authority to issue the
former set of plenary, municipal codes --
for application within the territory over
which Congress has exclusive legislative
jurisdiction. See 1:8:17 and 4:3:2 for
specific constitutional authorities.

There you have it -- in living color
("colorable living", maybe?)

And the smoke is still billowing from the
barrel of that same Winchester rifle.

Let's call it the Cox Canon, shall we? :)

p.s. Some people just get confused
by the facts, so much so that
they do not even recognize their
own confusion. Such is a necessary
side effect of deliberate vagueness
in the IRC.
