There is an old adage, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.”
How true this is.
When the Contra affair became public, Lt. Col. Oliver North and his secretary made the news, how they shredded papers and hid them in their underwear. No one was prosecuted for breaking the law. Oliver North was not court-martialed and receives his retirement from the Marines.
At the same time, an enlisted Marine was being court-martialed because of telling some war stories that were not true.
President Trump wrote an executive order to prosecute the illegal immigrants who come to the United States to work.
No executive order was written to prosecute the people who are breaking the law by hiring the illegal immigrants.
Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was ordered by the court to discontinue the practice of profiling. He chose to ignore that order and broke the law, and was convicted. Because he was a strong supporter of President Trump, he has been pardoned by Trump.
This goes to show you, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. In all three examples, people broke the law. If you know the who, you can break the law. Is this a good example for our children?
