*While we crash and burn, small, low tech, agrarian societies such as the Hmong in the mountains of Laos will continue on without so much as blinking an eye.*

What is an ordinance. I've heard it before but don't know what it is.. And some errors have been rectified since the error was realized...

A "Law" covers the whole State and you could goto jail.
A "ordinance" is a County/City thing....a fine but never any jail time bucuase only the State can make things a "crime".

Most explain themselfs...others such as "curseing" or "Zootsuits" are just attempts to regulate personal choice or morals which the  government is not allowed to do.
