Holmes and Watson Help Out Average Citizen

By Brian Massie, A Watchman on the Wall, Average Citizen

Oath of Office from the Ohio Revised Code:

“I, ________________________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the state of Ohio, against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will obey the orders of the governor of the state of Ohio; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter.”

Let’s see if our friends can help us resolve this “sticky wicket”.

Do Oaths of Office Really Mean Anything?

Our friend Dr. Watson called an emergency meeting of the Baker Street detectives to inform them of the situation that the Average Citizen has uncovered in Lake County and in the State of Ohio.

Sherlock is eagerly waiting to hear the news; Mrs. Hudson has made some hot tea, and Jordy is all ears waiting to hear once again what the Average Citizen has discovered .

Dr. Watson: “My dear friends, thank you for being able to attend on such short notice.”  “But this truly is an emergency.”

Holmes: “My good man, I cannot wait to hear what our friend has discovered.”  “Hopefully, we can help him unravel this knotty problem, whatever it may be.”

Mrs. Hudson: “Oh my, I hope there is no danger.”  “It is not the F.B.I. knocking on his door again, is it?”  “Would anyone like a freshly made lemon scone with a spot of tea?”

Jordy:  “Aye, that lad was in a tight spot for a while.”  “He was in Washington on January 6th wasn’t he?”

Dr. Watson: “Aye Jordy, but he knew something was not right when he walked to the Capitol after Trump’s speech, and the people were already crawling all over the building.”

Holmes: “Definitely a planned attack by the Deep State to make President Trump look bad.”

Dr. Watson: “Back to the latest kerfuffle…Average Citizen tells me that a Lake County Commissioner created a radio commercial with his daughter asking citizens not to vote for Issue 1.”

Mrs. Hudson: “Oh, I have been following that issue because the evil doers…”

Jordy: “I dinna ken fit ye’re saying, lass.” “Evil doers?  You mean the Democrats?”

Mrs. Hudson: “Precisely, Jordy…the Democrats, the evil doers, want to take away parental rights, and to be able to kill full term babies in the womb….even if they are born alive…it just breaks my heart.”

Holmes:  “You mean to tell me that Democrats believe in child sacrifice?”  “They worship the demonic god Baal?”

Watson: “Ah yes, the colonies have left the narrow path, I fear.”  “There is even a ‘Christian’ (Watson uses air quotes to make his point) pastor telling people that they should not judge others because it is in the Bible.”

Instantly, the group shakes their heads, as in disbelief in what they just heard.

Jordy: “Lordy, Lordy!.” “Fit Bible is he reading?”

Holmes:  “Well Jordy, it is in the Bible, and Jesus did say it.” “It is stated in Luke 6:37.”   “However, it is widely misinterpreted by even the best-intentioned believers.”  “Jesus’ message was that we are not to judge others by men’s standards, but rather judge others based on God’s standards.”  

Jordy: “But for a pastor to say it, doesn’t that mean something?”

Holmes: “Yes, it means he is leading his flock astray, and will pay a heavy price on judgement day.”

Jordy: “What a blooming eejit he is.”

Watson:  “Back to the radio commercial, the Commissioner’s daughter made a very valid point when she stated that if Issue 1 passes will all elected and appointed officials in the State, who are required to take an oath of office to defend the U.S. Constitution and State of Ohio constitution, be violating their oath of office if they do not support child sacrifice and removing parental rights over their own children.”

Holmes: “By jove, I think she is right.”  “Swearing an oath on the Bible means that you will uphold the constitutions at all costs.”

Watson: “Or, Holmes. are oaths of office merely a thing of the past, a guideline, if you will, and not an imperative directive to hold one accountable?”

Mrs. Hudson: “Have the colonies come to the point where it is just another lie, a deception, a betrayal of the moral standards that was once upon a time sacrosanct in that great nation?”

Holmes: “Oh my goodness, when a person’s word is no longer his or her bond, they shall reap what they have sown.”

Dr. Watson: “Alas, I must get back to Average Citizen with our suggestions.”

Jordy: “I would tell him to buy 100 acres, put a house in the middle with a moat and a drawbridge for protection, because his country is going to hell in a handbasket.” “Either that or stay blootered so nothing matters.”

Watson: “Not a bad idea, Jordy.  However, property taxes are so high, he probably couldn’t afford it.” “They are pricing their seniors out of their homes with ever-increasing property taxes.”

Holmes: “My, oh my, oh my.”  “What tangled web we weave, when we first set out to deceive.” “Please give my regards to Average Citizen, I wish him well.”  “Tell him that I know that people want to believe the comforting lies, rather than the unpleasant truths, but the truth must prevail.”

Jordy: “Aye, Holmes is recht, just tell the lad to keep his heid.” “Judgment day is coming.”

The entire group raises their cups of tea in salute to the patriots in the colonies, wishing them well in their pursuit to save their republic.
