Could you expand on your "color of law", -- 'does not apply to citizens', -- thought though? - You lost me.

It's my understanding that the codes/reg's etc. created by a city council does not have the same force of law as those laws created by normal constitutional process. Most city gov'ts. are now nothing more than corporations attempting to gain more control and revenue from citizens in their alleged jurisdiction. Any set of codes passed by a city council are essentially unenforceable because they are not constitutional in nature and as such are created under "color of law". The mayor and city council are nothing more than the CEO and board of directors of the local corporation known as "The City of...." and have no more jurisdiction over our affairs than would the CEO and board of IBM. Also, when IBM creates a set of codes and rules it's only applicable to their employees, same thing applies to local corporate gov'ts.
