Commenting on Constitutional Law Professor Offers Glimpse Into Progressive Mind-Set: White People Are The Problem,
Chocopot says:

This is precisely what I was thinking. It is pathetic enough that someone with a mind as warped and detached from reality as this person is walking around free, outside of a rubber room, but that she is teaching our children is truly frightening. One need not wonder why this country is sinking fast when we find that this creature is certified and permitted to teach.

Millions upon millions will lose their life line that the government has made them dependent on. Sure some will get off their arcses and get a job, but far too many are registered Serfs, they will not survive. The opportunity to teach a man to fish are over, scavenging then rioting soon follows. History is full of government failures, people uprisings, and empires crumbling, the difference today is the speed in which it will happen, technology assures us of that. As our onion starts to be peeled back an ugly decaying core will be exposed. The dollar holds about 5 cents of its value when compared to the 1960’s (30 ounces of gold buys you a new Buick in the 1960’s (approx. 2,500 to 3,000 dollars), and today 30 ounces of gold will still by you the best Buick on the market, however you’ll need another 30,000 dollars to buy that same Buick). The perceived value of the currency is everything, but with the Trillions of fiat money printed by our Government (you can compare this with Rome’s cutting their coins in quarters and saying the value of each quartered coin is the same) will result in the same dome as fallen upon Rome. It’s ironic how this same Government scenario play’s out over and over again in our history, but here we go again!

Commenting on Duck Commander Ignites A Revolution,

Congrats Wayne Allyn Root, you have hit the nail on the head. This Duck deal has given everyone (even those who have been sleep walking through two democrat administrations) a wake up call about exactly what is going on in this country. We have been on the verge of turning into the Progressive Statist cultural control version of Nazi Germany’s Gestapo. The Statists have been successfully brainwashing the public into a culture that is completely intolerant of any thought processes other than their own version of the way things should be.Imagine someone who was cryogenically frozen in 1965 and thawed out in 2013. What would their reaction be to the culture of political correctness? It would be literally unbelievable to them.that is notion of inclusiveness and tolerance would have come full circle to the point that the terms were a caricature of the their very definition.I think this is the beginning of the end of this sort of eastern media and hollywood driven social “bullying”. As I said, even people who haven’t been paying attention are starting to do so now as a result of the incredible stupidity of the corporate leadership of Cracker Barrel and knee jerk liberal mismanagement of the entire episode by A&E. If I didn’t know better I would think it was a purposeful conspiracy by these two entities to get the attention of the public and bring the country back to its senses. But we know better than that.

Commenting on The ‘National Debt’ is Smoke And Mirrors!,
1baronrichsnot1 says:
December 9, 2013
Our money, as bob livingston points out is debt! Take a buck out of your wallet, it says federal reserve note! A note is a debt! Not an asset, the note is used to collect taxes from! Print a buck, pay 26% on average income tax, spend it and pay 8% average sales tax, 36 cents federal on energy, every transaction nets the federal gov’t at least 41% taxes, lots of transactions, eh? Now lets print 17trillion of them, the paper last for about a year in the economy, you can say income on that buck is 40% of a 14 trillion economy. The income goes up with acceleration of the money supply, so the more bucks in circulation,(inflation) plus the faster it moves through the economy= more and more income, FROM FIAT CURRENCY! Printed by the federal reserve bank, not a federal institution, but private bankers collecting interest on money they created as debt. “The note”! The reason Bob says that it is the same as hitler’s money supply system is that the Rothchilds, (Red Shield) were named Baer was hired to be their central bank in germany, bankrupted wymar and germany, and changed their name to Rothchild ( the name of the bank)to disquise the scam and the fact that Woodrow Wilson sold out America and allowed a private bank called the “fed” handle congress affairs of controlling the currency in 1913! These central banks even printed the money to buy their stock in the banks! Woodrow spent the rest of his life trying to undo this damage! Now commonly called the money changers! Our debt to them is running about 490 billion a year! All other countries who have this system(called the debt monetary society) is just that, a monetary system that runs on debt! Get one of those bucks, and you have recieved a promissary note that they will cash it at the “window” for, you guessed it, another promissary bankers note! Print money, collect the taxes which are the free money we supply gov’t. Wayne Veale needed some history I guess.

The Mob Rules

Commenting on Thanks To Reid, The Senate Is Now A Mob,
Vigilant says:

Excellent analysis, Mr. Livingston.

"[The filibuster] encourages moderation and consensus. It gives voice to the minority, so that cooler heads may prevail. It also separates us from the House of Representatives—where the majority rules. And it is very much in keeping with the spirit of the government established by the Framers of our Constitution: Limited Government… Separation of Powers… Checks and Balances. … [T]he filibuster is a critical tool in keeping the majority in check."

As Senate Minority Leader in 2005, Harry Reid "got it." What a hypocrite.

I am constantly amazed at how knowledgeable and brilliant Mr. Livingston is in his analyses. I know he has been "doing this" for a while now, but apparently he’s been right all along. I’m going to ignore the very sad reality of what he wrote about on this thanksgiving Day and just say that, in my opinion, Mr. Livingston is a national treasure.

Accountability And Blood Stains

Commenting on ‘New’ IRS Abuse Is The Same Old Story,
plato1955 says:

The IRS should clean up its own back yard. Accountability is not just a word, or a concept, that can be applied, or tailored to suit the Gov’t. American citizens are supposed to be protected and defended by those we vote into office. Not hounded, persecuted, and denied due process. THEY WORK FOR US !! If we do not stand, and quickly, Obama will succeed in his goal to destroy this nation. Take this geniuses teleprompter away, ask him the hard question, and watch a fool in action. A dangerous fool.

The people in Florida who are trying Zimmerman are (first of all) cowards, and (second of all) liberals. Like cowards (and liberals) they are responding to the following tweets. Names left off:

I’ll kill him.

Watching the Zimmerman trial. If he don’t get life, I’ll kill him.

Travon martin need justice! Gimme me tha pistol. I’ll kill Zimmerman myself.

I’ll kill Zimmerman for $20.

If they don’t kill Zimmerman Ima kill me a cracka.

If George Zimmerman win, I’m gonna kill a fat white boy dat look lik George Zimmerman. I swear. LOL.

The New Black Panther Party put out a$10 k bounty on Zimmerman’s head with a "Wanted Dead or Alive" poster. "Kill these racist honkeys, these crackers, these pink people, it has been long overdue!"

There are lots of tweets just like this, folks.


George Zimmerman Will Be Found Not Guilty

Sanford, Fla. — A Factual Accounting — George Zimmerman, a 29-year-old Hispanic man, is charged with shooting and killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin while conducting “neighborhood watch” on Feb. 26, 2012.

Government sources have informed US~Observer that the Sanford Police Department had no intention of charging Zimmerman with a crime and that it wasn’t until African-Americans from across the United States started protesting that the State of Florida stepped into the picture and filed a groundless, even ridiculous charge of second-degree murder against Zimmerman. State Attorney Angela Corey was assigned by the State to bring the false charge.

You Sound Off!

Commenting on Marco Rubio’s Big Immigration Mistake,
just_reality says:
June 28, 2013 at 11:49 am
A quick summary at why this is happening: this is a corporate initiative that gets them the cheapest labor possible and puts the cost (of public services that will be used by the multi-child illegal aliens) on the taxpayer. In my neighborhood, the banksters are using them to fix up the foreclosed houses for resale.

But the bigger problem pointed out by Mr. Wood is the grand scale of vote trading and whoring in Washington DC. One solution to that problem is a law stating that no amendment may be added to a bill if it does not have directly to do with the subject of that bill. No earmarks. All bills are voted on based on the bill’s merits alone.


Commenter’s Corner

Commenting on EPA Empowers Environmental Extremists To Attack American Farmers,
Gilly from Australia says:
March 26, 2013 at 9:48 am
In my opinion private information should remain private and the consequences of releasing of the private information will add to the already suspicious minds of the farming community and when confidence is lost, the information collected becomes less truthful, thereby corrupting the process and basis upon which decisions are made up the food chain of command back down to farmers.

Farmers are already aware of the effects contaminants can have on the value of their produce and your not telling them anything new that they need to dispose of contaminants in a responsible manner otherwise they will be contributing to the devaluation of their own landholdings. Now instead of trying to bash the farmers why not get your acts together and chase up the chemical companies who are selling soil destroying chemicals.

In Australia there are already pockets of still fertile farmlands which can not be used for vegetable growing due to the Dieldren fiasco some 40 years ago….the rich chocolate volcanic soils can only be used to grow non edible flowers and meat animal grazing is prohibited for who knows how long, due to chemical companies not being held to account for what they were then selling and doubt whether much has changed.

Food lot buyers are increasingly getting soil tests before they invest their money in any large or small landholdings, so the incentive in already self evident by current farmers who will suffer serious financial loss if their land is found to be contaminated by nasty chemicals, and dont need to be harrassed by the EPA trying to justify themselves by becoming a land god.

If your government want farmers to keep growing food then dont try the Russian solution by socialising land use. It did not work in Russia or China so dont start it in USA or Australia where people are starting to realise the Greens Party infested EPA are red russian socialists or communists would be a better truer name. The Greens have been infiltrated by the commos who are doing their upmost to distrupt our food production in the west and the lazy politicians on both sides are letting it happen. Reality is no paranoia.

Commenting on GOP Says Congressional Democrats’ New Budget Would Jack Federal Spending 62 Percent In 10 Years,
Pedro Piporro says:
March 15, 2013 at 11:12 am
Yeah you’re absolutly correct. I came to this country for the freedom it offered and now I feel like I have a ball and chain attached to it. The US government and state governments have taxed and regulated me to death. They have turned me into a virtual slave. Why should I work my coullo off so that a bunch of lazy bastardos can sit on their coullos all day? Why should I have to contribute to obama’s daughter going to my home country on spring break? Why would a government that is in the dire financial condition that ours is in spend more on a 1 week spring break for a 13 year old girl than what most Americans make in a life time? No wonder we are going to go broke. Its not just 1 party either, it’s both. We need to stop voting for incumbants and we need to start telling the lazy American people and the lazy immigrants and especially the lazy politicians that the taxpayer doesn’t owe you a dam thing. If you can’t pay your own bills in this country go the hell back to where you came from I don’t care how many generations ago your ancesters came here,and that includes you indians too. And these dam politicians all they do is sqabble about how much they are going to steal from us who are willing to work. A lot of posters even on this site are siding with one of these parties or the other. What a joke! Can’t you all see that it’s one system and that they are just putting on a show for you? It wasn’t long ago that we had no income tax. Now even if it were 100% percent there wouldn’t be enough money coming in to balance the budget. That is a fact. Check it out for yourselves if you don’t believe me. We need to change our whole way of thinking and stop shifting our bills into the future or we will leave our kids with nothing. We will revert back to turd world status just like so many great societies before us have done.

Commenting on Gold, Silver Registration On Illinois Docket,
George Chatraw says:
March 1, 2013 at 9:15 am
Another drop in the bucket of lost freedoms…Just a little every day and no one will notice their freedoms are slipping away, right? How would you like a much smaller government? How would you like less government in your life? How would you like less corruption and waste in government? How would you like less interfering and warring in other countries? How would you like politicians who listen to the people and respond in like?

These are just a few of the benefits available to anyone who truly wants them. Keep doing what you have been doing and you WILL keep getting what you have been getting (in government). Why do you continue to do the same thing that will guarantee continued government of destruction? Both parties are corrupt and self-serving and you know this, yet you keep voting them in and then complaining about how they ruin the country.

So many people vote for the “lesser of two evils” because they don’t like either party or candidate. Voting for the lesser of the evils is STILL voting for evil…Since you are going to vote for one of the evils anyway, why don’t you consider voting for the lesser of the three evils? The Libertarian party is not going to please everyone on every issue, but it will certainly provide a much better system of government than we have had from the other two parties. Look into it, give some thought or keep on doing what you have been doing and KEEP ON getting what you have been getting.
