Smalltime Big Government

July 25, 2011 by  

Smalltime Big Government

Across America it seems chaos and government oppression are the new order.

Violent mobs are gathering in cities large and small and looting stores and terrorizing communities and theme parks. Thieves are stealing air conditioners from churches and schools, manhole covers from streets, copper from electrical substations, street signs from city roads and hay from petting zoos. Home and automobile burglaries are being reported in increasing numbers.

Local police officers are becoming more militarized and more dangerous and oppressive, arresting people for photographing landmarks and detaining them for taking video of trains, train stations, public buildings and interactions with public figures. When serving warrants, no longer do officers knock on the door and give the subject of the warrant an opportunity to comply. The new normal is to crash through the door with guns drawn, prepared to shoot anything that moves, according to a report by the Cato Institute.

The health police have run amuck. In Detroit, a woman had her daughter taken away by a SWAT team because she decided the treatment a doctor had prescribed was doing more harm than good. It took more than a month for the courts to overturn the actions by the Michigan Department of Human Services and release the daughter from the “protective custody” that resulted in her being sexually assaulted, according to an attorney representing the girl.

In 2009, during the run-up to passage of Obamacare — a proposal that more than 60 percent of Americans opposed at the time — Congress ignored its rules of procedure and mocked opponents who gathered outside the Capitol building protesting. Congress, which is supposed to represent the will of the people, instead represents its own interests and those of the corporations that fill campaign coffers.

Even now — in negotiation over raising the debt ceiling by imposing higher taxes rather than making significant spending cuts — it is opposing the will of Americans who elected a Republican majority in the House hoping to see reduced spending in Washington.

The effect of the battle in Washington, which has nothing to do with doing what is right for America and everything to do with enriching and entrenching the political elites and their cronies, is trickling down to local government. For while the Federal government has long been a thugocracy, now we are seeing the thugocracy metastasize like a cancer.

In Quartzite, Ariz., city council members had police wrest the microphone from a woman who had been given the floor. Jennifer “Jade” Jones, a gadfly described as a blogger and vocal critic of local government, was apparently bringing up subjects the council didn’t want to hear. Or didn’t want the public to hear.

After a video went viral that showed the fascist police officers obeying their SS superiors on the council — and ignoring Mayor Ed Foster’s demands to let Jones speak — Police Chief Jeff Gilbert encouraged the council to declare a state of emergency. They did so following a closed meeting that some believe violated the State’s open meetings laws.

Things are apparently just as bad in Gould, Ark., where the city council has decided the Bill of Rights doesn’t apply.

A new ordinance passed there bans the Gould Citizens Advisory Council from doing business in Gould because it “is, in effect, causing confusion and discourse among the citizens of Gould and as a result is contributing to the friction not only between the Mayor and Council but also among the citizens who deserve a cooperative government. Also no new organizations shall be allowed to exist in the City of Gould without approval from a majority of the City Council,” according to the ordinance.

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Dean John Pippa told Fox16: “I couldn’t believe that it was real when I first read it. The truth is, the city of Gould doesn’t have the authority to tell anyone that they have no right to petition them, no right to speak and no right to exist in their city.”

“That’s why you have a higher court,” Council member Sonja Farley told Fox16. “To keep order when people can’t keep order. That’s why you have a council.”

But now that council, according to its own ordinance, can’t lawfully meet and discuss city business with the citizens it supposedly represents.

Not even little girls or home gardeners are safe from the new thugocracy. In Midway, Ga., police put an end to a lemonade stand being run by three girls who were trying to earn money for a trip to a water park. The reason: They didn’t have a business license or the required permits (which would cost $50 per day or $180 per year).

Police chief Kelly Morningstar said police didn’t know how the lemonade was made, who made it or what was in it.

In Oak Park, Mich., Julie Bass faced jail time for growing vegetables in planters in her front yard. Vegetables are not considered suitable, live, plant material under the city’s code. A judge dismissed the charges; but then the city, in an obvious case of piling on, cited her for not having licenses for her two dogs that live inside her house.

The elected elites and bureaucrats occupying the halls of government no longer represent the people. They represent themselves and those who can give them the biggest favors.

In Alabama, some current and former legislators, lobbyists and two gambling magnates are on trial on bribery-related charges. The lobbyists, who agreed to testify as part of their guilty pleas, have described how they promised campaign cash, do-nothing jobs and other favors at the behest of the gambling magnates to legislators in exchange for support for a pro-gambling bill the gambling bosses supported.

Cash and favors in exchange for legislation are being portrayed by defense attorneys as standard operating procedure in Alabama. That’s certainly the case in Jefferson County, Ala., where a number of county commissioners and county bureaucrats are serving sentences for corruption relating to financial shenanigans with big banksters that have left the county on the brink of filing the largest municipal bankruptcy in United States history. Unfortunately, it seems none of the banksters will ever see the inside of a jail cell.

Governments hate freedom. But the laws they pass to “keep order” only create more chaos. It’s happening right now on a Federal level, where government and Federal Reserve policies have created an entitlement mentality, bubbles and busts leading to high unemployment, default, currency collapse, uncertainty and chaos.

In Washington, in Alabama, in Quartzite and Gould, and in towns and cities across the country, governments are ignoring Americans and creating more chaos, unrest and unhappiness. In response, citizens grow increasingly unruly. Many begin doing things they never would have considered before.

Gerald Celente was correct when he said: “When people lose everything and they have nothing left to lose, they lose it.”

We’ve already seen chaos in Europe and the Middle East. With rampant, long-term unemployment — the government’s skewed unemployment numbers show overall unemployment at 9.2 percent, but the rate is 16.2 percent for blacks — the loss of homes through foreclosure and class warfare being stirred up by politicians, is it any wonder that chaos is becoming the new normal?

    Last night, I was informed that thieves in the Phoenix area scour the community, looking for large (vacant) homes so they can steal the air conditioning systems [and whatever else might bring some quick cash].
    Apparently, banks that own the houses don’t make any effort to keep watch over the property they now own. Welcome to the new 1984, piggies.
    It needs to be said that this insanity is accelerating during the OBAMA administration. Do I expect him to rush to the aid of Phoenix bankers? Of course not, but it would be nice to think that he’s enough of a leader to protect America and uphold that OATH he took before he invaded the White House.
    Apparently, this too, is too much to expect. Gee, I thought that America’s new coalition of socialists, communists and fascists CARED about people. I guess that means they care only about THEMSELVES and POWER.

    • Karolyn

      Nothing new here. They’ve been stealing anything not nailed down since before I moved here 6 years ago.

      • JUKEBOX

        Karolyn, I have lost two central air conditioning units in the last 45 days to these Obama chaos dispersers. If I happen to be lucky enough to catch them, they will have a terminal case of lead poisoning. Our police department is getting 3 to 4 reports of this type of theft each day. Our town is only 40K people, so they will have stolen every unit in town at least once before long. Thanks Obama for bringing chaos to the entire country, so maybe you can declare martial law, and become Der Fuerher.

    • DaveH

      That happened to our vacant home in San Bernardino just last month (stolen air-conditioner) + some vandalism which I believe is even more heinous than theft as it does nobody any good.

    • Bossdog803

      My fellow Americans…

      Welcome to being a third world country with a dictator that can’t be removed from power…

      What in the name of common sense does it take to wake our citizens up.

      Do NOT say a word about Fidel, Osama, Saddam, or any of the other world’s terrorists…We have our own and nothing can be done to remedy the situation

      • http://www.malibukim.com Malibu Kim

        Nothing can be done??? We can ALL vote for RON PAUL FOR PRESIDENT IN 2012!!!!!!! The one man in Congress that is not beholden to the elites is RON PAUL. It’s important to register Republican and vote RON PAUL as the REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE – THEN VOTE HIM INTO OFFICE. RON PAUL is the only candidate that can bring AMERICA BACK TO A REPUBLIC – - AND STOP THE FASCIST/MARXIST/SOCIALIST/POLICE-STATE PATH THIS COUNTRY IS SNOWBALLING DOWN. Would we like to have a CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS that actually are adhered to and not tread upon such as the last few presidents+ have done??? VOTE RON PAUL PRESIDENT 2012 and that is exactly what we will get – AN AMERICA OUR FOREFATHERS WOULD BE PROUD OF INSTEAD OF ROLLING IN THE GRAVES OVER! Have any of you seen the results of the limited Federal Reserve Audit recently released which RON PAUL forced through with the support of the grassroots movement? Go to Campaign for Liberty and get the dirty details that Ben Bernanke and his criminal cohorts have been doing to our economy. Wrap that up with these illegal wars and you have the destruction of America happening right before our eyes. PRESIDENT RON PAUL 2012.

        • NamNavyVet

          I love Ron Paul, the only one that wants to audit and end the Fed and stop the wars. Only problem is, they will never nominate him, he does not belong to the “club” of neocons. They know he won’t play ball and continue the false war on terror and loot our treasury for the defense industry thieves. What can we do?

          • People’s Rights

            NamNavyVet, Ron Paul only received less than 5% of the votes. Donald said he would never win, because Ron Paul will reduce the Republican votes.

            Ron Paul wants to legalize drugs and prostitution. He was assigned to audit the Fed last year or at the beginning of this year, but he DID NOT DO IT AND WON’T DO IT. Because the Fed and his people were the ones who assigned him (Ron) to do it in the first place. That’s why you see so many Obama’s people promote him, so Obama can steal the election.

            Ron Paul encourages his supporters to KEEP THE MOMENTUM OF BOLSHEVIK REVOLUTION GOING when he SIGNS OFF his emails.

            Some of my friends were his supporters during the last election, and were disappointed when they realized who he really was.

    • Sue

      Sorry, if you are waiting for Obama to do anything right, you will be waiting for a long time. He is destroying America. He wants Socialism/Communism along with his cronies.

      • http://N/A Fred

        I saw this coming before his election. His alingning himself with all these communist loving friends he put in his cabinet etc. and to look at every single thing he has done to delibriately destroy our economy, they are way advanced from their original plan. Why? The American people are asleep at the wheel. They believe those who are passing his actions off as in experience etc. Nobody could screw up that bad with 100% record of screwing up. It is a plan of many years in the making and the gates are fixing to close on our freedom, which means the end of The U.S.A. Look at what he is doing with negotiations of the debt etc. Makes sence now doesn’t it?

        • Old Henry

          Well Fred, as my grandma used to say: “Birds of afeather flock together”.

      • Don211

        If Obama is a Socialist or Communist, how come a lot of Wall Street money is going into his Presidential Campaign funds.

        • mjmurphy

          cause they are idiots don.

          • http://deleted People’s Right

            Naturally the money would go toward Obama’s campaign, because he’s one of them.

            “He was selected before he was elected” as Louis Farrakhan said.

            COMMUNIST/National Socialism/Socialist for SHEEPLE.

            CAPITALISM for the wealthiest people in the world.

          Don
          The same people that control Wall Street, banks, Federal Reserve, Hollywood, media, newspapers, unions etc, control our Government.
          The ancestors of these thugs are the creators of Communism. Rothschilds, Warbergs, Franks, Oppenheims, Schiffs, Rockefellers, etc. Obama and his cronies are just paid employees of these anti-Christ, anti-American, anti-human devils. They need to bring down America before they gain control of the world. They believe that the Chinese will go along with their plan, but they are so wrong.
          America is in terrible trouble and there seems no way out right now.
          When America fails, China will control the world, not the Central Bankers. These same evil families will be the first to be executed.
          When Russia and China fell to Communism, the first to go were the people that created Communism. Evil consumes evil. Do your homework on the creators of Communism, and who perished in Russia and China after they fell.
          Read “To Eliminate the Opiate” by Rabbi Marvin Antlemann.
          Good luck in the coming battle.

          • richard

            The chinese are not as strong as everyone thinks. They have one of the biggest speculative real estate bubbles in the world, that has been making it look like their economy is growing and it is not. They have massive buildings citing vacant. People buying condos that the average person can’t afford and the owners just let it sit vacant. If these places ever fill up it will overwhelm the infrastructure and the streets will be clogged with people and cars and over flowing sewers.

        • rulken

          So he can have a lot of money to smear anyone that runs against him and his Communist administration!

      Last April my son set an old steel bath tub and old plumbing in front of his garage in preparation for cashing it in at the recycler. He put it there on Friday night went to the lumber yard Saturday morning and came home to find it all gone. Absolute broad daylight!

      His garage sits a good 50 feet back from the road. His fiancé said she saw someone in the road out front, but did not pay any attention. The sheriff’s deputy said he had scrap stolen from behind his garage.

      From what I have heard these thieving b*stards roam around in their pickups looking for things to steal and the opportunity to steal them.

      • DonnaAngelStar

        Yep, this happened at my sister’s house in Ft. Worth last August. Scrap metal there one hour, gone the next. I live in Costa Rica and they steal the metal off bridges, cooper from wires, anything, even nailed down. The vandalism is senseless. Can’t see it getting much better for a good while.

        WE STAND WITH ISRAEL!
        IMPEACH THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION!

        Word is out hat my place is to be left alone. I have yet to have any one come and steal anything from me – but since I own a salvage yard, and process recyclables into reusable commodities – this is probably the only way to keep what I have from the thieves. Even my home seems to be immune from thieves. But then, since I live in the country, strangers, riding around in their vehicles, looking for stuff to steal; don’t fit in with us local folks. We ain’t got time to catch then and cart them off to the local jail; so we just string them up.

        • Old Henry

          Cool…..

        • thinking

          Can I live there too? I can live with rules like that since they would never effect me, I don’t steal.The nicest people I have ever met were at a gun range way out in the middle of nowhere.It was a given you better act right and everyone always did.Wish other places were too.

        • JUKEBOX

          I am tempted to wire my replacement unit in a way that will leave the thieves laying on the ground beside it, when they try to steal it again.

    • boffo

      So Obama is responsible for helping the banks protect foreclosed property. I thought government was supposed to leave private property alone and that the federal government was supposed to keep its nose out of local issues? Why don’t you good patriots get out your guns and protect it, you idiot tools.

      • Thor

        “boffo”…is that the abbreviation for ‘bureaucratic official’?

      • DaveH

        It doesn’t matter whether Obama is at the helm or somebody else, Big Government, by helping themselves to taxpayer money as if it were their own, has understandably influenced private thieves to feel the same about other peoples’ property. In other words, the Big Government thieves are setting a bad example for the ordinary thieves.

        This is a problem that speaks to who we are as a people and to just how far down we have sunk into the gutter…. The white house is working diligently on bringing the financial crises to an end (by destroying our economy)… This is the beginning of the kind of behavior thay are waiting for,so as to protect itself against we the people….Things will accelerate the closer we get to the election…

    • kodster

      Having worked in the foreclosure department of a major bank’s mortgage division that eventually merged with Bank of America, I know for a fact that the banks hire local property managers and law firms to take care of these properties. However, the property management companies are usually small companies that cannot maintain the security and services on the many foreclosed homes now, so they are spread thin. They do basic services (winterize them, secure them, and then they do spot checks). I wouldn’t be surprised, either, if some of these property management employees are in on it, because they would know which properties are vacant and what they contain. But it is NOT the federal government, or even the local government’s, responsibility to police private homes and businesses. They can do nothing more than drive by and spot check, unless they suspect criminal activity, such as the property becoming a drug house (crack house, etc.). And really, do you think they’re gonna do that? It doesn’t contain people who are going to plot the overthrow of the government and their cushy jobs!

      • independant thinker

        “But it is NOT the federal government, or even the local government’s, responsibility to police private homes and businesses.”

        While this is true the Pheonix banks are just as entitled to a bailout as the mega banks and financial institutions that Bush and Obamma bailed out.

    • FreedomFighter

      The tyrant’s rule is the beginning of lawless times, presided over by the evil ones bent on our destruction. Without god lawlessness is prevalent, morals weaken corruption and evil becomes pervasive and the call of the people to the tyrant for help ratchets up. When the free people cry for order and safety is loud and strong enough the tyrant will stretch out the iron hand to protect his now willing slaves.

      The above is a drama or theme that plays out all through history, free peoples trading that freedom for security.

      “Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again. “—Ronald Reagan
      Only we Americans can save ourselves from the tyrant government that now rules our land.
      “Together, let us make this a new beginning. Let us make a commitment to care for the needy, to teach our children the values and the virtues handed down to us by our families, to have the courage to defend those values and the willingness to sacrifice for them.

      Let us pledge to restore, in our time, the American spirit of voluntary service, of cooperation, of private and community initiative, a spirit that flows like a deep and mighty river through the history of our nation. “—Ronald Reagan

      In my opinion President Reagan’s words are as strong now as then, and are certainly better than anything I can think up.

          I reckon we’ve had enough “standing” whether together or alone. Also enough sitting with our thumbs in our fundaments.

          I got pushed around – mentally – by a fascist cop today at work. City of Tucson has passed or is a-fixin’ to pass a new ordinance that will levy a $13 users fee on every ticket issued for a misdemeanor. So let’s go hassle honest folk trying to make a living, since the criminals might shoot back.

          The police state is real in Tucson, now that the mexican drug cartels own the TPD and the sheriff’s office.

          How about a million man march on DC by the Quail Hunters of America with 12 guage shotties loaded with 00 buck mags? Works in Houston for Quannell (sp?) X. Google it – while you can.

      S C we found out very early obummer had no intention of honoring the OATH when he took it. he told the people what his plans were for the country in Ohio when he explained to Loe the plumber that he should be willing to give more of his hard earned money to the dopeheads and loafers. (I know he didn’t say it in those words) but the meaning was very clear to those of us who were inteligent enough to discern the meaning. yet a majority of the people showed the world how STUPID they are and voted for him,

      Same in most of the large cities in Texas. Unfortunately most of the crimes are committed by Mexicans. A lot of them here illegally. Once they are arraigned ICE should be processing them, but they are not. They aren’t even coming to check them.

      Well, WordPress says ANY comments are comming in too fast and locks me out

        Lewis,

        Same here, but it seems to be okay now.
        Had me scratchin’ my head for a while.

      The emboldened thieves should be no surprise. When we stop enforcing laws selectively, why should be surprised if people start behaving as if laws are optional? Why do people like me say that you must enforce immigration laws before you can have meaningful immigration reform? Why if you truly care about the welfare and safety of those who have fled their countries because of unlawfulness, that the first thing you have to do is enforce the laws here. Because as we have been teaching our youth, our illegal immigrants, the “minorities”, and our politicians… we’ve been teaching them for a long time that abiding by the laws are entirely optional. So why are we surprised when everyone and their dog behaves as if laws are optional? So we first teach them our people to break the law is okay as long it is the laws we say it is okay to break, and then we wonder when they start breaking the other laws?

      Sure, some people are desperate. But how many of those stealing and looting are those who working hard honest jobs a year ago and after a year of conditioning on the government “teat” have become the people who are now looting to make ends meet? How many come from broken homes encouraged through government education that tells us that we are greater than our Christian ancestry and morals? That we should be having sex with prevention instead of maybe living by those archaic Ten Commandments? We created this problem over a long time. It is just accelerating under an administration that has such ingrained objection for the Rule of Law that the administration will even sue our own States for enforcing the laws that the federal government refuses to enforce.

        This is so true,also in the Bible it is said that when the Black Horse

        kissinger using the white house front doors like a revolving door to
        tell his puppet what to do,the guillotines are in place for us…in all 50 states,so those that accept the chip in the hand or on their forehead
        their souls are lost forever,obummer came out of the woodwork like a bat
        out of “HELL.”Need I say more?Read the Bible it lays it all out especially in the chapter of…Revelations.

    The thieves around here are going after copper tubing–like it was gold. As far as the banks are concerned–they have ripped off people for years and years. They should take care of their own security. Besides, exactly how much is too much when it comes to interference with businesses, etc. we do want smaller government don’t we? There is bitching and moaning about the situation either way.

    • 1minuteman

      right on claire. what a lot of people don’t know is the banks forclose on people and sell the property cheap because the governent is basically paying the bamks the difference of what they get from what was owed. essentially the banks are getting bailed out at tax payer expense and the people who got forclosed on just lose their house. dont forget the banks gave out loans they knew the people could not afford and knew the government would bail them out. too big to fail but you and me are just fine to fail. thats the obama way. where i live in florida my county has 30% vacant homes now and rising and unemployment is around 17%. hope and change.

    • http://yahoo alex

      if you don’t like the way banks do business don’t do business with them or start your own bank inspite of what the democraps try to make you believe congress tells them what they can or must do and what they cant do, and no im not a banker

    • ObamaAin’tMyMama

      Obama suxbigtime!
      Yup on the copper.
      Thanks to thieves I just purchased a foreclosure home for retirement.
      I got it cheap because it had been stripped of copper wiring and AC tubing as well as the coils in a second AC system.
      The other thieves are contractors like the one quoting here to rewire.
      They wanted $12,000 to $14,000 to rewire.
      Quote said it would take four men anywhere from four days to two weeks.
      Since I’m quite capable, I purchased the copper needed for just over $300.00 and did the wiring myself.
      One man four days.
      Hummmmmmmmm.
      Also since I’m capable and licensed I purchased the copper tubing the AC unit that needed it. Did the work myself.
      Saved almost $3500.00. HUmmmmmmm.
      The other unit, “a package heat pump” was so torn up I just said to heck with it and went shopping on Ebay.
      Found just exactly what I was looking for.
      Bought it for $32.00.
      Nope that is not an error. I got it for $32.00.
      Shipping cost me almost $450.00.
      So what. A refurbished unit of the same model would have cost me $4200.00.
      So I got the unit. Repaired the screwed up wiring at the control board done by a really stupid person. Took me about an hour to get to the bottom of his errors and fix it.
      It didn’t need any servicing beyond that so for about $475.00 I replaced the unit for what a contractor would have charged me over $4000.00 for then installation on top of that.
      I never did ask anyone as I knew better.
      So yes the thieves are here and I’m waiting for them!
      I will not call 911.
      The wild hogs will take care of the remains.
      Then I’ll eat the wild hogs.
      Come on by you idiots who can’t make an honest living!
      The sleeping giant is definitely waking up! MADDER THAN HELL!

        ObamaAin’tMyMama:

        Sounds like you may be somewhat neighborless so a silencer will not be needed.

        I don’t have any wild hogs, just wild cats and some cyotes. Ghess they would “get er done”, but take longer.

      • JUKEBOX

        I live in a small town in Alabama, and in the last 45 days, I have been a victim of the central A/C unit thieves twice, one an older unit, and the other was a brand new unit. The investigating officer told me that the thieves were getting 3 or 4 units a day. This type of anarchy has been exacerbated by the Obama myrmidons. They are also stealing catalytic convertors off of parked vehicles. Two local funeral homes have lost about six from their funeral coaches. Our local police are overwhelmed by the Obama led crime wave.

    • Jeff in OH

      They should be protected… They pay taxes just for those things. You would expect them to keep an eye out for crime no mater who It’s for….

  • Angel Wannabe

    Unfortunately, the Thugocracy doesn’t stop at the police, its all the way to the White House and in our homes.. My husband and I have a couple who are very good friends of ours, who Two years ago they’re mortgage was sold to another loan company following the collapse of Taylor, Bean, and Whitaker._ and later_Only to find out that Freddie Mac Soley ownes the mortgage. These people from the get-go have had nothing but trouble with this new loan company. First there was a refusal by the loan company for this couple, to pay on line. Payments can only be made by mail. In the beginning there was a few times, it was stated by the loan company, that payments were not being made, when in fact payments were made, and the couple had a paper trail proof and had to prove it.
    In time the couple started to dig for info on the net and found, there is a host a people who are experiencing the same problems they are with this company. Such as none-escrowed loans, who’s taxes and insurances are being paid by the loan company, without being late, and without notification to homeowners, until months later. The loan officers are bullying people into agreement to addtional monthly charges, to cover, what the the loan company wasn’t liable for in the first place.
    Folks a word of caution, if your under a mortgage, make sure you know who REALLY owns your mortgage. Follow up and keep a paper trail on everything__Thugocracy & bullying isn’t only performed by those who have guns or tazers!_-As many a folk have found out,you call yourself “the Homeowner”_with a mortgage, try not paying your taxes for a while and see who really owns your home, it ain’t you!

    • mark

      You’re absolutely right. These banks and mortgage companies are the worst. Much bigger thieves than honest burglars

    • Varian

      I recently went through foreclosure where the property auctioned off for what was owed, plus expenses. Under AZ state law, I now owe nothing. Just got a collection notice from FNMA via BofA for more than what was owed. Don’t know where the money went, but BofA got paid (according to the county recorder) and it appears FNMA didn’t. LOL.

    • Carlucci

      And speaking of that, check this out:

      http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/4500.html

      • Thor

        Carlucci, thanks for the link…unbelievable. See more at

        http://www.infowars.com/

        It all kinda makes one want to ‘cling to their guns and religion,’ doesn’t it?

        • Kate8

          Carlucci – The deranged lone-gunman excuse is wearing thin. Finally some people are beginning to get suspicious. I’ve been sayin’ for some time now…

          Maybe it’s because, couple of decades ago or so, I read about programs like MK-Ultra, where children were taken and mind-control experiments were done on them. They were deeply traumatized and programmed to respond when given a hypnotic signal, for this exact purpose: to carry out shootings and other mayhem in order to create a climate where government could restrict or eliminate our rights, and we’d be afraid enough to accept it.

          These shooters are not crazed amateurs, but are well-trained marksmen. And often, there are other shooters who are either not seen or not reported. In any case, they seem to have assistance of some kind.

          I believe that it is as I have maintained: there is a pool of trained shooters just waiting to be activated on cue. Now is the time when these children would be young adults.

          • Carlucci

            Reminds me of that old Charles Bronson movie “Telefon”. I was in junior high school when I saw that movie and it scared me to death. It also made me realize that governments are capable of doing all kinds of evil deeds.

          • Kate8

            Carlucci – Actually, it gets a whole lot worse. There are lots of books out now which expose things never talked about before.

            Anyway, did you see this video? More on the deranged shooter model.

      • DaveH

        A month or so after the Oklahoma City bombing, a woman called in to a talk radio show here in Arizona, and said that several months prior to the bombing she had confronted several men who were blowing cars up near her ranch with fertilizer bombs. They identified themselves as agents of the Government and said they were studying the effects of fertilizer bombs on automobiles for forensic purposes. How come we don’t hear about these things in the news?

        • Karolyn

          Those guys could have been anybody. Did she even call the cops? Probably not. That’s why it wasn’t in the news.

          • JeffH

            …conjecture Karolyn has spoken…and you know this how? Proof, website? I would expect a reply like this from 47D…shoring up your credibility I see…LMAO!

          • DaveH

            I don’t remember, Karolyn. But aren’t you supposed to be working today, earning some of that money you’re receiving courtesy of the taxpayer?

          • Old Henry

            JeffH, I was wondering if eddie47D has skidattled like Vigilant. I have not seen him post lately.

          • Karolyn

            Just making a point, jeff. If someone posts something that isn’t backed up, why can’t it be questioned with a logical observation? Everything I said is possible. If I found somebody blowing up stuff, I would certainly call the police no matter what they told me.

          • JeffH

            Karolyn says, “Did she even call the cops? Probably not. That’s why it wasn’t in the news.”

            A question followed by an assumption and then closes her comment with finality…I call that pure conjecture.

            Old Henry, I think 47D is was traveling to visit his mother in either Illinois or Indiana…kinda nice to have a vacation from his narrow mind and “busy body” tongue, short lived as it may be. Enjoy the time off while you can, I know I will. :)

  • Ray Mason

    Obama would love and is counting on chaos breaking out in America, a perfect excuse to declare martial law and seize control of the government and shut down any citizens objecting to his actions. Hello dictator. Problem is, I think that he is too stupid to realize what a resistance this would create. It is too soon for him to create chaos, we are still armed. Only after disarming the public does martial law work effectively and only if the general public is willing to comply. I ain’t saying to get ready to shoot your neighbor or the local police deputy, but be prepared to do what you have to do. Gather your allies, make a plan, don’t wait to see what happens, prepare now.

    • Dagney

      I think that you are right, that was the intention all along. However, these crude people always underestimate the American people. They think we are stupid and lazy. Well, I think we have become a bit lazy, that is for sure. We are NOT stupid, though! And, 80% of us love and understand the Constitution.

      As a result, I think Obama has done this country a huge favor by being elected at this time. The commies were really good a incrementalism. They got too impatient! Now, the sleeping giant has awakened. And, guess who is going to get destroyed. The Democrat/commie party! It’s going to be a bloodbath November 2012. And, with any luck, the commies will be set back at least 50 years.

      • Sutekh

        Unfortunately, as Stalin observed, “It’s not who votes that counts; it’s who counts the votes.”

        With Obama’s stooge Erik Holder running the DoJ for the last few years, do you really think that we are going to have fair elections? We can only hope and pray.

        We have already seen election fraud with the voting machines. One old lady had trouble voting for a candidate other than Obama on the machines. Voters in Nevada found out that Harry Reid’s name was already filled in on their ballots, last election time. And ACORN has simply changed its name and is still in business with the blessing of Obama.

        Note that Obama and Hillary are still working on a U.N. treaty to abrogate our constitutional right to own guns. The FDA is trying to ban ammo on the grounds it is environmentally unsafe. And Obama is deliberately allowing military grade weapons to be sold to Mexican gangs in order to create enough carnage to get the UN treaty passed. Marxists only solve the problems that they themselves deliberately created.

        When the guns are gone, we will see exactly what kind of monster we have in the White House.

          Good post Sutekh, I said that last week about Stalin also.”Those that vote decide nothing, those that count the votes decide everything”. it pretty much looks like it’s all over and if people think voting in 2012 is gonna make a difference they’re dreaming, this country isn’t gonna last that long, don’t anyone give up their fire arms, then we’re through for sure.

            if necessary….from other countries…like Russia and Chinese,this was told by a former military person he got out because he didn’t like it

        • sybucket

          Neither this administration nor any other will be succesful in disarming this country. There are, by consertive estimates, 300 Million guns in the hands of the citizens. Do any of you really think we will just hand them over? There are those who thik the military will be used to “collect” them….Most of the Soldiers in this country are from the South and West. Dam few from liberal states. Most of the soldiers in this country own personel arms. They’re not going to give them up either. Those who assume that just because a law to give up your guns, is past, that the people will obey it, are not thinking right. Any attempt by this Government or any other to ”
          dis-arm” America will result in Civil War.

            Don’t we have a few cities in America that have already force their citizens to be gunless… like Chicago… I can’t remember the other two that made a law that you could not own a gun.

            Didn’t FDR tell all American citizens that they had to turn in all their gold coins they had (voluntarily) after WWII so that the US wouldn’t go broke… and many, many sheeple did as they were told.

            History repeats itself…

      • BobK

        Nice thought, but you have to realize that there are already more people getting assistance from the government than paying taxes. They will all vote democratic, since it’s their gravy train. Only when they realize that there is nothing left will they start to riot. No one should be allowed to vote that receives from the government (i.e., pays no taxes). But that ship sailed a long time ago, and we are stuck with those rules. So the democrats will continue to commit voter fraud, and actually, with so many on the take, thay may not even have to commit fraud anymore.
        The only course of action is to prepare for the worst – and it looks like it’s coming soon.

        • Dagney

          You are forgetting 2010. And, just because someone needs help, does not make them automatically an Obama/commie supporter. No, don’t lose faith in the American people.

        • Dagney

          Not all who need assistance are stupid commie libs who will vote for the doles. In fact, I would say most needing assistance right now are very cognizant of the FACT that it was government who caused this financial crisis in the first place. So, yes, maybe almost 50% are dependent on the government for day to day subsistence right now. However, if they aren’t in the lost inner cities, they had some education and they understand what being American is all about! The commies are unmasked with this debt-talk. Most know Obama and the commies on the Democrat side are holding out for more taxes on EVERYBODY to pay for their reckless spending. I choose to have more faith in the AMERICAN people!

        • ObamaAin’tMyMama

          Hey Bob!
          I’m ready, looks like you might be.
          I have been steady excavating for over a year.
          So far I have a 12 ft by 14 ft room under ground.
          It is quite deep also.
          The ceiling is at 14 ft under ground. The floor is at 22 ft.
          That will stop Gamma radiation.
          It is set up so that it is under positive pressure when I seal it up.
          The vents are under ground and quite a way from the actual room I’ll be in.
          They also vent 14 ft under ground with double check balves. The exhaust gasses etc have to get up through the soil.
          No vent pipes to be found at the surface. Harder to find me that way.
          Also harder to put something in the room from above through vents.

          While completely sealed with my pets, my wife and one other person I have O2 etc for over 90 days. If I can get my air from outside I have water and food for three people, ten cats and two dogs for about four months.
          The place is really booby trapped well also.

          I have a large O2 supply as well as a CO2 absorber.
          Sort of like a nuclear submarine. Certainly not as sophisticated but works for me.
          As a test I ran my satellite down there and locked down for over a week.
          My air supply and CO2 absorbtion over that time using myself and two of my cats in the test is where I calculated my extended time from.
          I did use quite a bit more O2 as every day I was digging to make the room larger. Finally had to quit as the tails were just about to prevent my getting to the exit! :-)
          My H2O supply is very highly filtered. I have reverse osmosis to a level that removes all bacteria, virus etc that are harmful.
          Before I have to resort to that though I have to use over 450 gal of fresh water.
          What a way to live!
          In a country that is supposed to be free?

          By the way why does everyone think this country is a Democracy?
          Democracy is an absolute path to Obama style dictatorship.
          We are a Republic!
          Remember the pledge of allegiance?
          I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands
          Note: ” to the Republic for which it stands.” Not “to the Democracy for which it stands.”

          As Ben Franklin said; “Democracy always devolves into a tyrannical state.” ALWAYS!
          We are a Republic with a Republican form of government.
          For those of you who think I’m talking about the Republican party get off your butts and learn.
          The Republicans are part of the problem, or at least have been for a number of years.
          Do I think I’m seeing a real change for the better in the Republican party?
          Nahhhh they just wanted to get elected.

          If they do increase the debt ceiling and raise taxes in any way I and about 300 others I know will be from here on voting against the incumbent. PERIOD!
          I’m digging today. Goal is to increase the room by one more ft wide.
          It will then be 13 ft X 14 ft.
          I have no idea how big I’ll eventually make it!
          I like digging in it.
          The saw mill just down the road loves me.
          I buy lots of 4X4 and 2X6 lumber.

            You are exactly correct about our country being a Republic. Here is a link that was posted by Vicki last Saturday to a Friday article. It is very educational.

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4r0VUybeXY

            I am completely intriged by your “room”! What provisions have you made for waste disposal?

            Old Henry,

            Great You Tube… thanks, I must have missed when Vicki posted it.

            I will send it around so others can be educated as to the demise of our Republic becoming none other than an Oligarchy.

          Bob,
          Generally speaking, it is the Politicians and the people who administer the programs who make the loudest noise. The benefit recipients are too busy living hand-to-mouth to raise much hell.

      • DaveH

        If that does occur (the setback), we need to use that momentum to take back our educational system. Get Government out of it. If we insist that everybody must be given a free education, then at least take the control of curriculum out of Government Hands and let people send their children to the schools of their choice where they will be much less likely to be propagandized.
        And those of you, who don’t know just how long our own Government has been propagandizing us, should pick up a copy of Judge Napolitano’s “Lies the Government Told You”.

    • Sutekh

      Obama would indeed like to declare martial law. Marxists are good at causing civil unrest and blaming it on someone else, like Jews, capitalists, and/or Christians.

      He has enjoyed being compared to Abraham Lincoln. I personally think that the only thing about Lincoln that Obama admires is that Lincoln suspended the writ of habeas corpus, and (in a precedent for Moammar Khaddafy) used military force against his own people.

      When Obama was running for election, the media would have done far better to compare him to Robert Mugabe than to Lincoln or FDR. And his skin color has nothing to do with it. It’s what he stands for.

    We have a police state because you conservatives are so scared of these burglars you’re talking about.
    If you’re going to yell about CRIME! CRIME! CRIME! the politicians are going to give you a police state because they think that’s what you want!
    I notice that the few actual citations in this piece refer to heavily Republican states – maybe there’s a connection there?

    • Dntmkmecmoverther

      Arizona and Arkansas are hardly republican states; Harry Reid dominates Arizona in case you had forgotten. Arkansas had a republican governor for a time; but that is the place where the Clintons learned how to fleece their constituents. Mena airport ring any bells for you?

      • Paul Gardner

        Harry Reid is the senator from Nevada.
        Arizona’s are Jon Kyl (R) and john McCain (R). Gov. is Jan Brewer (R).

        Arkansas did give us Bill Clinton 20 years ago – more recently Mike Huckabee and is home to WalMart.

        Both safely conservative Republican strongholds.

      I feel sorry for your neighbors, o confused one. We conservatives are trying to alert you to the FACT that government is imploding, law enforcement has been manipulated for years, and people like you are content to sit back and theorize while problems get worse. Perhaps one of the WORST problems that progressives do their best to ignore is the OPEN BORDERS fiasco.
      With a little luck, you live in a border town. What will happen sooner or later is a steady stream of criminals invading your house, looking for whatever they can get. Invite them, big boy. Have a cup of coffee. Get some autographs. Take some photos. Get some new pen pals. However, when it necomes obvious that something is ‘amiss,’ don’t wait for conservatives to help you. Can you guess WHY?
      You’re going to be so “POPULAR” when society implodes. Maybe then, you’ll figure out why life got so complex so fast. Sit back, and enjoy the ride, Clyde.

      • Paul Gardner

        My neighbors and I do fine.
        I’ve always had Republican friends and family members. We agree on lots of stuff.

        If we can take the emotion out of this discussion, I would say I’m puzzled by the disagreement here.

        Is it not true that Republicans/conservatives are more worried about crime than Democrats/liberals?

        Do you really think liberals want a police state?
        Do you know who the cops always round up first when a dictator takes over a country?
        They always grab the intellectuals and the lefties first – communist or fascist – always the same.
        Arrest the lefties first.
        Occupational hazard of being a leftie and one more reason to resist the imposition of a police state (too late, Posse Comitatus and other rights died under Dubya’s reign).

        • Paul Gardner

          Meant to say – I am in a border state.

    • Dagney

      Sorry, you’ve got that wrong. Conservatives, when left alone, do what they do best. Work and support their families. They don’t have time for the taking over of academia, taking over government, or the judiciary. That is 99.9% on the commie/lib side whether they call themselves Democrat, Independent, or Republican. Who files the most lawsuits? People who whine the most and call themselves liberals. THOSE are the people that has caused most of the kaos and change of our laws to the beginnings of a facsist state. Conservatives, too busy with LIVING, hardly pay attention to those creeps because, really, as people, they are the lowest common denominator. Hey, maybe THAT’S why commie/libs do what they do, huh? Because they CRAVE attention for themselves. We all know they don’t CARE at all about the consequences of their actions!

    • Dagney

      Sorry, that would be the commie libs who scream and cry. Conservatives have no time for that because, for 50 years they have been busy doing what they do best, working and taking care of themselves and their families. The ones who have been infiltrating academia, government, and the judiciary are the lowest of the low whiners who “want to change the world”. Isn’t that why people say they also enter journalism school? LOL, all commie/libs.

      Nope, you are completely off base. Conservatives, don’t really notice much about government, don’t enter that “profession” as readily as the whiners. Of course, now that the whiners think they have the upper hand, Conservatives are really noticing the growth of facsism in their lives. With the election of Obama and his power over the three branches of government for two years showing us all what the Democrat party is all about, the are doing something about it and ARE entering government to right the ship. You can say “thank you” later.

    • DaveH

      What we’re talking about, Paul, is a Government which isn’t doing their real jobs of protecting people from the Force of others, because they are too busy micromanaging the life choices of the citizens, and feathering their own nests at the citizens’ expense.
      Please don’t be so naive as to think this is a result of any one political party. Both Republicans and Democrats are guilty.

      • Paul Gardner

        Certainly not GOP only.

        I live in Vermont and when Howard Dean became our governor following the sudden death (heart attack) of Republican Richard Snelling (a good man) he made a point of being “tough on crime”. In other words, he locked up more people than his predecessor. We’ve had an overcrowding problem with our prison ever since.
        I suspect that Dean had national aspirations even then and that was part of the reason for his “tough” stance.

    • http://Moreexpensive,moreunknowproblems. Lewis Munn

      Probably is. Seems to me the Democrats are used to suppressing citizen protests, and supporting the criminals who pay them off.

      I have lived in “low crime” states where reporting a crime led to YOU being punished.

    • Ranchman

      What are you talking about, Paul? We have avowed commie revolutionaries in the White House and at the head of several federal agencies. Read about our new Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, at http://www.usasurvival.org. Cliff Kincaid has done some outstanding research, as usual, on his communist connections. No, Conservatives are not “crying wolf” over all this, crime included. We are simply seeing all the chaos with open eyes, wake up.

    • AttilaTheHun

      That’s not actually true. We have the police unwilling to protect us. We have the left trying to disarm us. That’s a lethal combination.

      As far as crime statistics, I’m sure that states that are a hot bed of liberal activity can hold their own in terms of crime. He did mention Michigan.

    • Jim

      How ignorant…to think this is a “conservative versus liberal” or “Democrat versus Republican” driven issue!

      You think someone pointing out crimes taking place is tantamount to screaming “WE WANT A POLICE STATE!!! GIVE US A POLICE STATE!!!” This is a most absurd position one could take!

      You must be reading to much fiction that you’re starting to believe is TRUTH! (what a bunch of unbelievable useless tripe coming form the mind of an IDIOT)

    Consolidating until the big guys win all round. That happens throughout history in down turns. Doesn’t make it right and the man on the street has to continually fork out.

    But history is being made daily as further control of the economy is being lost and other tighter rules have to be enforced to shore up the system. Instead of fixing they are patching and wondering why it is looking like the repressiveness of Zimbabwe where you traded loaves of bread illegally just to get food as there was stupid price fixing. I got mugged in Harare for my three free loaves of bread from a baker that I bought other pizzas from with hard currency. That was all they took

    Property rights underpin the building industry. The property industry underpins the economy. Go figure where this is all heading….

    Why are the rules currently are overlooked and the abusers protected. Our jobs has been given to those without proper documentation and this law went on the books in 1986. Congress created NAFTA and our jobs along with taxpayers funds to corporations to countries which does not pay taxes here. In my town one should produce evidence you are in the HVAC industry before scrappers accept ac copper. Took ac scrap and offerred license and he did not take it.

  • TIME

    As I have been saying over and over again you don’t even know whats going on in your own town / city / or even state. The media has been playing this shell game for thirty plus years now the bad news other states far away get, and yet you who live where all hell is breaking loose are clueless about any of it.

    Again this simple trick will help you better understand the brainwashing so you can to see how your being controlled down to the nano. Just How accurate is the weather your told your having.
    If you want proof – get a home weather station.
    Where I live on Sunday July 24th 2011 the {national weather and local weather} stated the following;
    {It would be a high of 96*, a low of 71*, we would have mostly clouds skys with showers both druring the day and night. With a Humidity of 44%.}

    What was the real weather; (it was 103* in the shade,) >112* in the sun,< we had bright sunny skys with light cloud cover, 61% Humidity, and not a drop of rain to be found. The low was 79*.
    On the other side of town it was the same as far as sunshine, but it was 107* in the shade, and 119* in the sunshine, with 68% humidity.

    Look folks if they can't tell you the truth about what your eyes see, what you skin feels, what your body tells you.
    Then how can you "believe anything" the Government tells you at all?

    My God people the brainwashing is so bloody obvious it hurts, even a blind man can see its all BS.

    This is how your government feels about you – go eat your peas at the back of the bus and let the Politicians do what ever they want. Afterall they told you they were GODS, now why will you not get with the program.

    • Karolyn

      I think using the weather as an example is stretching it a bit, TIME. The government isn’t in charge of weather.com or the weather channel or any local stations. Nobody can predict the weather exactly. What you cited is quite a disparity. Could it have been a mistake? I have never seen that happen here.

          You guys are off your rockers! If local weather people try to soften the forcasts or reports so they don’t scare off tourists,then that is private biz and corporations doing,not the big bad gov’t. There is no doubt that private biz and corporations have an incentive in soft pedalling news that can hurt their profits,but usually the private media runs w/ big stories to get higher ratings. The gov’t has no interest or involvement. Wake up from your blind slumber!

          Time, Al S.,
          You gentlemen are correct. If I recall correctly it was circa 1990 after we had that wonderful 120* degree day in June that the official temperature station at PHX was moved to a locatiion that stays about 10* cooler, so asd not to scare off the tourists.

      • TIME

        K,
        Its really quite simple if they lie about something you can taste, touch, see and feel.

        What else do you think they will lie about?

        Oh DUH thats right you think everthing is just peachy, now don’t you.

        • Push comes to shove

          I am usually right with you on most things, but the temp thing is far off.

          I work in a business where calibrated thermometers are a necessity, currently the weather channel download on my computer says it is 104 here in Dallas, just went outside with my calibrated thermometer and the ambient air temp (temp in the shade) was 105 on concrete and 104 in a grassy area. It is known that our concrete jungles (and they have become jungles of survival of the fitest) will typically have higher temps than outlaying rural areas.

          I do however agree about moving temp stations to areas that area cooler, they did the same thing at DFW airport. Placing it in an area that is remote and not within 3-400 yrds of any concrete which will only produce temps of about 2-5 degrees cooler. Temps across the DFW area can vary by 2-10 degrees on any given day.

          I know we are feed alot of BS by government (we have John Wiley Price as our latest example), but the weather? I think they would rather tell what the weather really is so they can institute rolling blackouts to prove thier point of the necessity greater energy rules and regulations. What say you.

      • Karolyn

        Well, I heard this morning that on the east coast, this is the hottest summer in 15 years. When I moved to SC 6 years ago, it wasn’t this hot; neither was it as cold as it’s gotten in the winter. The Dallas area has had 30 days of triple digit temps. There is no normal anymore.

    • Sutekh

      In Houston, a man shot burglars looting his neighbor’s house.

      The result? The local marxist mobocracy started a French Revolution style protest in front of the man’s house.

      The two “victims” were illegal aliens from South America, who had ostensibly sneaked into the U.S. to get jobs that American’s wouldn’t take. Apparently the jobs Americans won’t take are burglary and breaking and entering.

      The girlfriend of one of these men filed a wrongful death suit. The American people should file a class action suit against her for aiding and abetting an illegal alien criminal.

      But every ethnic demogogue in the county was publicly cursing this man, calling him a racist and a murderer. That is where our system has gone south. We no longer vote on anything. The marxists just cobble together a preriot mob and demand, and demand until the media spreads their lies everywhere and the politicians cave.

    We are witnessing the demise of America as we have known it, and the collapse of our culture. Over the decades, some have tried desperately to sound the alarm, but there were few “ears to hear”. The evil will only get worse, and violence will increase, not just from the “bad guys,” but from our own government. Government is largely the cause. Don’t expect the mainline churches to change the tide. They wouldn’t know God if they met Him face to face. The Gospel and morality many of them preach today is not that of the Bible. That is not to say true Christianity is dead, it isn’t. It is thriving, but it is also under attack, not only here but world-wide. We are in a great spiritual warfare for the hearts and minds of people. Our national leaders give lip-service to the Almighty, but their hearts are far from Him. That is a prescription for disaster! Wake up America!

    “President Evil” (to borrow from a popular movie series), if he throws enough tantrums to finally get his petulant way, will eventually enter the log of history (not ‘progressive’ history but REAL history) as the most hated man on the planet to ever be in a position of power. Far surpassing Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Nero, Caligula, etc. because it is the greatest nation to ever exist he’s destroying. America’s diversity has always presented its problems but it’s always been the foundation of many of our strengths. How do the Bilderberg ‘One World Government’ braintrusts imagine an ENTIRE PLANET (especially with so many formerly free national populations, not to mention radical sharia law extremists, nations that don’t understand the concept of being civilized, nations that are so repressed the concept of freedom is actually terrifying, etc.) melding into a utopian paradise that we here in America haven’t succeeded in for nearly 400 years? The lack of progressive through-thinking is staggering because there never is an end-game plan…..just reckless impulses that are followed until the situation they arrive at crumbles. An ENTIRE PLANET in such chaos?……We can’t even have our own elected officials fulfill the tasks they were elected to perform!! Since we’re human beings (well, MOST of us anyway) how can we expect any improvements on a global scale. Redistribution of wealth is no insurance that anyone who suddenly has an upgrade in lifestyle will understand the responsibilities that accompany it. I’m sure some of the chief protagonists of this lunacy like Obama, Soros, Van Jones, etc. couldn’t care less as long as they’re insured their megalomaniacal power!

          Blame?? I blame all the politicians that have held office for the past 50 years. Greed is the name of the game and it continues. It will never stop. The Democratic and the Republican party (aka Tea Party now it seems–I always thought that when the tea party first began) have all had a hand in this fiasco. Go ahead, stick it to the seniors that have paid into SS and Medicare their entire lives. Make the seniors pay for everything–they will be dying soon anyway, correct? Go ahead, stick to the veterans and our troops and their families. Go ahead, let the insurance companies, the big pharmas, the big corporations make all their money off the backs of the middle class. After all, didn’t they contribute huge sums of money towards the politician’s election? To hell with the middle class. Correct? I have watched, I have read, I have listened to people on this blog. I have done all I can to keep up-to-date on everything that is going on. Know what? The first thing that pops into my mind is what my Mother used to say when I was a kid–the Republicans are for the rich and the Democrats are for the poor. It is ironic that I remembered her words. I can going to piss off some of you bloggers but this is what I firmly believe and I truly do not give a damn what anyone thinks or says. I can give back as good as I get and I will. The very moment Obama entered the White House, the Republicans became the party of NO. Neither party was willing to compromise on one damn piece of legiislation. All they wanted to do was “go after” the other party’s agendas and do away with them. Wanna know why? Because they are only thinking of 2012 and getting elected. They are hellbent on making damn sure neither party gets any credit for doing any good for America–and this is and will be at the Americans’ expense. We as taxpayers are paying for the ineptness of both parties. All of them are willing to sacrifice America and all Americans just so they achieve their own goals, and this is exactly what they are doing. They are willing to let America go down the tubes just to prove their point–and what is their point? It is all about me, me, me, and their crummy party. I am fed up with their garbage. I would like to see all of them tossed out of office.

      I must agree Julius. But there are two reasons why this ridiculous “One World Order” concept that George Soros believes in, cannot and will not work. It is so simple, it’s Religions and Cultures. Can you imagine any muslims being “tolerant” of any other religion? No. Can you imagine all cultures coming together to form a “one world order”, I do not think so. There is NO melting pot, thank goodness, for I cannot imagine everyone “being” the “same” in so many respects. Obama, I believe, is a muslim. I think he feels for them, and is always reaching out to them, because of his philandering, irresponsible Father who’s religion was islam before he became an athiest. (Google it..) I do not see obama doing anything at all “for” this country. It appears he wants to destroy our country and turn it into something it cannot be. We will never, ever be socialist or communist. Americans will not stand for that insanity.

    No surprise that this is happenning. Desperate times call for desperate measures.People will do what ever they need to feed their families. The government is not helping the situation. All they care about is themselves and getting re elected. Meanwhile Rome is burning and Obama is fiddling away. Pray that we do not have to face a depression as our fathers and grandfathers did.

  • Rennie

    Gas prices here jumped to $4 a gallon overnight, of course there is mass transit, which ironically is the reason our state has the highest gas taxes in the country. And the newsmedia is silent, as we have no republican in the White House to blame it on. Meanwhile, we’ll pretend that higher fuel prices doesn’t cause inflation, that it doesn’t make people cut discretionary spending, that it doesn’t prevent job openings, and doesn’t hurt the poor, who may decide it’s worth the risk of stealing something they can no longer afford. And end up justifying the increasing police state, which means more taxes, fines and fees to support it, from an ever dwindling source of private wealth. Leave your valuables in a safety deposit box, and the difference is that only the government can steal it.

  • Jeryl

    Our society is reaping what it has sown. When you destroy the morality of a nation, you open the door for anarchy and crime. It can easily be demonstrated factually that when the Bible and prayer wer taken out of the public schools and (eventually) out of the public arena, crimes of all sorts rose dramatically and standardized test scores fell. Even when the norms were “adjusted” more than six times, the scores continued to remain low. But then, when your own government doesn’t want people who think for themselves, this is the way to go, right. Think about it: if crime is up who do the people normally turn to? Their governments. And if people can no longer think for themselves, who does the thinking for them? The government, of course.

          It is obvious you are very interested in interest rates rising and passing on the debt we have already spent to the next several generations and with increased interest rate. Whether you agree with what the money has been spent on it our debt. I might remind you this amounts to taxation to future generations without representation. We have to balance our spending and revenues to pay this debt off.

  • Karolyn

    Where I live there is very little crime. As i posted previously, there are always thieves who will target empty houses. It is a fairly low socio-economic area. Charlotte, NC is about 50 miles north of here; and actually, in the last couple of years, crime in Charlotte has dropped since they hired a new Police Chief. There was a mob problem on Memorial Day weekend where a mob of primarily kids went into a store late at night and started just taking things; but due to increased police presence, nothing happened over July 4th weekend. Nothing really new or unusual happening here.

    It’s amusing to read these comments. You all do realize that the war on the american people started with the assassination of jfk? Every president after him is pushing for the nwo. Simply because big business wants it. Goerge w probably made the biggest contribution to eroding our rights. Btw, do you really think that the right to have a shotgun or pistol is going to make any difference? We have the worlds strongest military for a couple of reasons. Why do you think they never, ever reduce military spending? Partly to keep us in check.

  • HarryButtle

    So you’re saying there was no crime before Obama took office? That’s delusional. This website is playing on your fears by saying things that are absolutely, demonstrably, categorically not true.

    Crime Rates Down Across the Board – FBI

    The early returns are encouraging. According to the Preliminary Semiannual Uniform Crime Report, January-June, 2010, the nation saw a 6.2 percent decrease in the number of reported violent crimes and a 2.8 percent decrease in the number of reported property crimes compared to data for the same time frame during 2009.

    According to the FBI, murders dropped 7.1 percent in the first six months of 2010 while robberies decreased by 10.7 percent. Reports of vehicle thefts also dropped by 9.7 percent.

    FBI crime reports have shown a steady decrease in crimes rates since 2008. In the annual report for 2009, released in September, reports of violent crimes dropped 5.3 percent and reported property crimes fell 4.6 percent.

  • mike

    I always get a good laugh or two out of the sensational writups on this site. The plan for the NWO has been building since JFK was assassinated. Every single president has been working for big business pushing for the NWO since. Democrat, Republican, they both have the same agenda! The difference is that they have slight differences in their policies that won’t affect the overall plan, in order to keep the public quiet. Not everyone is going to agree with one, so they created the other. They run with specific campaign promises, then they essentially go back on them, quoting progress or tax cutting from some program they implemented which isn’t what any logical citizen would define as such.

    Also, all of this violence has been going on for quite a while. Remember, it will always rise when there is extreme poverty. The unemployment rate is still above 9% so of course there is going to be more crime than before. People are hurting.

    Any of you that think that owning a rifle or a handgun is going to protect you from the US army coming in and forcing its will on you are simply dreamers. Why do you think that military spending is kept so high? To wage the war on terror, yeah sure tell me another. The war on terror is simply to make sure the world realizes that we are still on top. It also is to make sure we do not forget who is really in charge of our ‘freedom’.

    • Thor

      I hate to be the one to break this to you, Mike…check that, actually I relish the opportunity…but your ignorance of the principles of insurrection is showing through. The difference between insurrection and a coup d’etat is that the military prosecuted the coup d’etat to overthrow the leadership of a country and the people prosecute insurrection. No military in the world is a match for comprehensive insurrection because it is not a matter of whether or not the military can best the people in the field; it resides in the fact that no government on Earth can afford to field an army long enough to overcome the will of the people. You have only to pick up a news paper and witness what’s happening in the Muhgreb countries where private gun ownership has always been illegal to see that your comment is pointless. The only difference is that in the US private owners already possess 245 million firearms and are, therefore, a force to be reckoned with for a standing military of just less than 4 million.

    Oh, come on people, these simple minded comments are at best, disgusting. Do you not see this is not about Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal ideologies? We have seriously lost sight of the real issues. I feel the politicians, regardless of party affiliations are one in the same, and they are only playing on these supposed differences to further divide and conquer for self gain.

    While I am not defending Democrats/liberals/progressives, you have to recognize a vast majority of the tyrannical laws (patriot act under Bush and company) in recent years began with the Republican party under pretenses of conservatism, patriotism, safety and freedom. Now, it has been continued and further escalated by the current Democrat party, which is a clear indicator both parties are playing good guy, bad guy as a smoke and mirrors scheme for mere self interest and to gain greater control of the masses, and ya’ll are drinking the kool aid!

    If you ask any liberal what liberalism means, they will tell you it is about less government intrusion in their homes/lives/businesses; conversely, they will tell you conservatives want more laws enacted to control and dictate how one should live, playing off morality and religion.

    True liberalism is NOT about more social services, handouts or suppression. The true meaning of the word “liberal” conveys freedom of expression to live as one chooses, without government intervention/intrusion, and provided one is not infringing on the rights, liberties and pursuit of happiness of others. As you can see, all these labels have been created to divide.

    When you refer to liberals wanting handouts, there is no such thing. That was another ploy to get you to start believing that to be a liberal is bad or corrupt. People who are merely looking for handouts could care less of any ideologies or party affiliations. They will go with whomever gives them what they seek, with the least amount of effort. They are looking to suck the system, that is all. These individuals are aloof, apathetic and morally misguided. The have little passion, compassion or care.

    Please, stop polluting the real issues by such inane and devoid arguments and finger pointing, as that is unproductive, destructive and futile. Instead, go out and join conservatives and liberals alike to work towards a common goal, while respecting, uplifting and protecting each others’ beliefs and rights!!!

    • mike

      Very well said. I agree 100%.

  • FreedomFighter

    The tyrant’s rule is the beginning of lawless times, presided over by the evil ones bent on our destruction. Without god lawlessness is prevalent, morals weaken corruption and evil becomes pervasive and the call of the people to the tyrant for help ratchets up. When the free people cry for order and safety is loud and strong enough the tyrant will stretch out the iron hand to protect his now willing slaves.

    The above is a drama or theme that plays out all through history, free peoples trading that freedom for security.
    “Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again. “—Ronald Reagan

    Only we Americans can save ourselves from the tyrant government that now rules our land.

    “Together, let us make this a new beginning. Let us make a commitment to care for the needy, to teach our children the values and the virtues handed down to us by our families, to have the courage to defend those values and the willingness to sacrifice for them.

    Let us pledge to restore, in our time, the American spirit of voluntary service, of cooperation, of private and community initiative, a spirit that flows like a deep and mighty river through the history of our nation. “—Ronald Reagan

    In my opinion President Reagan’s words are as strong now as then, and are certainly better than anything I can think up.

      It’s their money, Karolyn. If your people don’t like it, seek work elsewhere. Or, put yourself in their position, by pooling your money with like-minded Liberals and start your own businesses to show us how to do it the right way. Don’t tell me that you can’t do it. It just takes the kind of effort that the Corporate owners made to build there corporations to their present size.
      And don’t whine to me that there are too many hoops to jump through to start your own business, because your people are the ones who created those hoops.

          Karolyn, do you know what “crony capatalism” is?

          Crony capitalism is a term describing a capitalist economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials.

          one example: Big Pharma + Big Government = crony capatalism

          • Karolyn

            Yes, I know. Why is it then that so many against Big Government are for the corporate world and it’s abuses?

          • JeffH

            Karolyn says, “Why is it then that so many against Big Government are for the corporate world and it’s abuses?”

            Care to site some examples other than an opinion? It seems to me that the progressive/liberals don’t understand the differences between capatalism and crony capatalism. The liberals are the ones who continue to prop up the crony capatalists by their continued support of a Big Government and then scream and cry about the ultra rich CEO’s and their subsidized corporate earnings. One feeds off of the other…Big Government is the head of the “snake”, cut off the government corruption and the problem will be solved.

          • DaveH

            “for the corporate world and its abuses”, Karolyn? Please tell me how you’ve arrived at the conclusion that we advocate corporate abuses?
            How many times have you told us you’re intelligent?
            Yet, you can’t figure out, as many times as we’ve told you, as Jeff just told you, that Big Government aids its favorite Crony Capitalists to the detriment of their smaller competitors, consumers, and taxpayers?
            We don’t have Free Markets. And we don’t have them because too many people like yourself won’t do the necessary reading to figure out that Big Government and Big Business work together. As Government Grows, Corruption Flows.
            And if you’d do some reading, Karolyn, you would know that those drugs are terribly expensive largely because the drug companies must spend massive amounts of money jumping through the FDA hoops.
            But suppose that we had no FDA hoops, and completely Free Markets. Still some drugs might be very expensive. There are many reasons why. The research and development, or production expense leading up to their mass distribution might have been very expensive. Or they might just be charging what they can because nobody else has put the effort in to create such drugs, so they have no competitors. What’s the alternative, Karolyn — no such drug, so nobody even gets a chance to take them? That would be like a Liberal thinks — “I can’t have them so nobody should”.
            Take your green-eyed glasses off, Karolyn, and start using your brain.

          • Karolyn

            Dave – of course I know all that. What I want to know is why any time someone speak up against the abuses of corporate America, you respond with “It’s their money and they can do what they want.” (more or less). Corporate greed by way of crony capitalism is what I’m talking about. CEOs being paid exorbitant money for sitting on their butts, while laying off working Americans and over-working those that remain is just plain wrong. Why should they not have to pay for their privilege by way of closing the loopholes and taking them to task for sheltering their money? They need to shoulder their fair share of the burden. They’re taking us all for a ride. I am not for big government, and I have said that before. I’ve railed against Big Pharma for years, and I hold a companies like Monsanto in particular disdain.

            You make it sound so easy for people to just pool their money and start companies. Well, everybody is not built that way, and many of us are not particularly money-hungry and just want to have a decent life and not have to worry. That is getting harder and harder with the rich getting richer and not wanting to contribute to the welfare of this country but only to their own welfare.

            Maybe I’m babbling, but I’m in a hurry. Yeah, yeah, as far as you guys are concerned that’s all I do is babble. But, you know what? I really don’t care what you think?

      Minimum wage is aimed at teenagers in high school, college students, and those that are retired and wanting a little extra income. Only a fool would accept and keep a minimum wage job for life, and then complain that they need help to make it in life.

      To those I say, “you should have educated yourself, gone to a trade school, or went to college! Don’t blame those that make more than you! Everyone has to make a choice in life…and live with it. If you chose to work for minimum wage your whole life, you have made your choice and that is no one’s fault but your own, and don’t expect me to give to you, the money I made.

        Me, me, me, mine. That’s one of the biggest problems in this country! No quarter is given to those who, by your standards, just don’t cut it. It’s almost like, in your opinion, those who can’t “make it”, have lower IQs, are lazy, whatever, are sub-standard human beings; and there is no such thing!

    As our society becomes more lieberal (and, therefore, sick) society will continue to become degraded and more violent until we are all living in a Mad Max type of world. My hometown, the democrat controlled cesspool of Belleville, IL, has trouble with gang fights, rampant theft, home invasions, gang rape and all kinds of things that one expects from the parasites of the democrat party. The police are incompetant and largely absent, and the local democrat-controlled newspaper does everything it can to keep much of the crime from appearing in the news. The simple fact is, the democrats like this state of affairs because it keeps their clients happy as they rape and rampage almost at will, and the law-abiding people are too stupid to realize that the root cause of all this is a lieberal culture in which no one is considered responsible for their actions and therefore no one is held accountable for their actions. We have the choice of getting all democrats out of office and restoring decency to America, or we have the choice of descending into a democrat hell. Which will it be people?

    The background of Barack Hussein Obama’s mother:

    Barack Hussein Obama referred to his mother as
    “the dominant figure in my formative years”
    Stanley Ann Dunham, Barack’s Mother

    Interesting information…..Stanley Ann Dunham,
    Mercer Island High School

    Stanley Ann Dunham Obama-Soetoro (November 29,
    1942 – November 7, 1995), known as Ann Dunham and
    Stanley Ann Dunham, was an American anthropologist,
    left-wing social activist, and the mother of Senator
    Barack Hussein Obama. She was born in Fort
    Leavenworth, Kansas to Stanley and Madelyn Dunham.
    Her father was a furniture salesman in downtown
    Seattle, Washington, and her mother worked for a
    bank. After a year living in Seattle, her family moved to
    Mercer Island, Washington in 1956 so that 13-year old
    Ann could attend the Mercer Island High School that
    had just opened. At the school she was on the debate
    team and graduated in 1960.

    Her family moved to Hawaii and Ann attended the
    University of Hawaii at Manoa, where she studied
    anthropology. When Ann Dunham arrived in Hawaii,
    she was a full fledged radical leftist and practitioner of
    critical theory. She also began to engage in
    miscegenation (inter-racial relationships) as part of her
    attack on society. Susan Blake, one of her friends, has
    stated she never dated “the crew-cut white boys”. She
    had a world view, even as a young girl. It was
    embracing the different, rather than that ethnocentric
    thing of shunning the different. That was where her
    mind took her. In Hawaii she met Barack Obama, Sr.
    from Kenya in her Russian language class.

    Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. was born August 4, 1961.
    Barack Obama, Sr. left Ann and their son in 1963 to
    attend Harvard in Boston Press reports claim Ann
    Dunham and Barack Obama Sr. were divorced around
    this time; however, no evidence has yet been presented
    to show they were ever married. The senior Obama
    obtained a masters degree in economics at Harvard and
    returned to Kenya in 1965 where he obtained a position
    in the Kenyan government. He was killed in an
    automobile accident in 1982.

    Two years later, when her son was five, Ann Dunham
    married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian oil manager and
    practicing Muslim, whom she met at the university. In
    1967 they moved to Jakarta, Indonesia. While in
    Indonesia; young Barack Obama was adopted by Lolo
    Soetoro, and became an Indonesian citizen. At this time
    his name was changed to “Barry Soetoro”. Young
    Barry’s school records, confirm the name change, and
    that his religion was listed as MUSLIM.

    While in Indonesia, Ann got a job at the American
    embassy teaching English. Barry’s half-sister, Maya
    Soetoro was born in Indonesia. Ann, Barry, and his
    sister Maya moved back to Hawaii.
    Ann Dunham soon returned to Indonesia with Maya
    but divorced Soetoro in the late 1970s. At this date,
    there is no evidence presented by Barack Hussein
    Obama that he ever legally changed his name, from
    Barry Soetoro; to Barack Hussein Obama! More
    important is the fact that Barack Hussein Obama
    has not provided any proof that he gave up his
    Indonesian citizenship and regained his American
    citizenship!

    Ann Dunham traveled around the world, pursuing a
    career in rural development that took her to Ghana,
    India , Thailand, Indonesia, Nepal and Bangladesh In
    1986 Ann Dunham worked on a developmental project
    in Pakistan. Later that year, Ann and her daughter
    traveled the Silk Road in China In 1992 she earned a
    Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Hawaii.
    Her dissertation, “Peasant blacksmithing in Indonesia:
    Surviving and Thriving Against All Odds,” was 1067
    pages long. She worked for the Ford Foundation and
    promoted Micro-lending.

    During Barack Hussein Obama’s campaign for the
    2008 presidential election he portrays his mother as a
    conservative girl from Kansas; however, in reality, she
    was a radical leftist and cultural Marxist. She lived in
    the Seattle area; spending her teenage years in Seattle
    coffee shops with other young radical leftist. Barack
    Hussein Obama claims his mother’s family were
    conservative Methodists or Baptists from Kansas.
    However his mother’s parents were members of a
    left-wing Unitarian church near Seattle. The church
    located in Bellevue, Washington was nicknamed
    “the little red church,” because of it’s communist
    leanings.

    The school Ann attended, Mercer Island High School,
    was a hotbed of pro-Marxist radical teachers. John
    Stenhouse, board member, told the House Un-American
    Activities Subcommittee that he had been a member of
    the Communist Party USA and this school has a number
    of Marxists on its staff. Two teachers at this school, Val
    Foubert and Jim Wichterman, both Frankfurt School
    style Marxists, taught a critical theory curriculum to
    students which included; rejection of societal norms,
    attacks on Christianity, the traditional family, and
    assigned readings by Karl Marx.

    The hallway between Foubert’s and Wichterman
    classrooms was some times called “anarchy ally.”
    Ann Dunham has been described by her friends as “a
    fellow traveler…” meaning a communist sympathizer.
    In an interview, Barack Hussein Obama referred to his
    mother as “the dominant figure in my formative years…
    The values she taught me continue to be my touchstone
    when it comes to how I go about the world of politics.”
    Before she died Ann Dunham wanted to adopt a
    mixed-race Korean baby fathered by a Black American
    stationed in South Korea. Ann Dunham died in Hawaii
    in 1995 of ovarian cancer and uterine cancer.

    IS IT ANY WONDER THAT
    OBAMA IS A MARXIST?

    A lesson from Daniel–by the time the handwriting was on the wall (Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin=you’ve been counted, weighed, found short on the balance scale, and your kingdom is divided) it was too late!

    And one of my favorites: Do you know the difference between a Socialist and a Communist?
    A Communist is a Socialist–
    in a hurry–
    with a gun!
    I believe we’re now in the crossover between the Socialists and the Communists, and d-day is November 6, 2012 (assuming Obama blinks first on the budget battle).

    What can one expect from a lieberal society where no one is considered responsible for their actions and, therefore, no one can be held accountable for their actions? The fact is, most of the chaos such as mob action and crime stems from the open sore that is the democrat party. This is a verifiable fact than cannot be denied. The democrats and the parasites who benefit from their programs operate from the same marxist moral foundation as stalin, mao, pol pot, maobama and the rest of the marxist megalomaniacs of the last century. Until we realize that those who live off of the efforts of others are typically selfish and criminally inclined (a dangerous combination), we cannot even begin to address the problem of the chaos in our society.

  • dqfreemind

    I happen to like the chaos. It may be the only tool we have to get rid of the draconian government.
    Civil Disobedience should be our heartfelt duty. It is time to put an END TO THE SHIT NOW!

  • Average Joe

    I remember reading once that in order to make a significant change in government, it would take 5% of the people to rise up and march on their oppressors. In a nation of 300 million + / – , that means 15 million people need to band together and march on Washington DC in order to affect change. This number is not un-attainable considering the amount of discourse in the nation. We don’t even need to be an armed group (although it would’nt hurt and may save some lives)….just that many people desending on DC would most likely do the job. It never ceases to amaze me that during the 60′s, a million man march was planned and executed using only word of mouth, the telephone and snail mail to accomplish their organization and execution of the march on Washington….and it paid off big for civil rights…..Yet now we have the internet at our disposal and rather than organizing the same type of march to “set things right”, we are deluged daily by all of these organizations and political action groups who only seem to want one thing…our money ( I see 20-30 in my junk mail box daily). They claim to be trying to change things, when in reality most of them are only helping themseves…to a hefty paycheck at our expense. If someone out there really wants to help, stop asking for money….and start organizing a march on DC….a march of 15 million pissed of,mad as hell Americans…that want their country back….at any cost, including laying down our lives for the cause of freedom and liberty. If I was more tech savvy with a community organization background I would be doing it myself….but alas, I am not. All of this talking and discussing of our grieviences is doing nothing to alleviate the problem…..only direct action and confrontation will ever change the status quo. In the meantime, all we are doing is blowing smoke. Certainly there is someone who reads this column who has the skills to start the ball rolling…..or at least knows someone….who can. Talk is fine….but action makes things happen.

  • Jim

    This is one of the most thought provoking articles I have read in a long while.

    For you consideration:
    Whose side is our Federal Government on in respect of the over-throwing of the Egypt Head of Government? What about the civil-unrest taking place in Syria… whose side is our Federal Government on?
    Let us look at Libya! We see not only our Federal position being FOR the over-throw of Moammar Kadafi, we also see NATO positioned to impose upon a Nation the will of the people of that nation!

    Now, would NATO forces come to America in support of the American citizens if we were to over-throw our Federal Government? Would any other Nation come to the rescue of those American Citizens to help them break free from the observably tyrannical, self-serving, Machiavellian type of leadership being imposed upon them?

    We can easily observe the wrongs being done by heads of state and those running their state governments around the world. We can even see our own government doing something about some of it! But, what if the positions were switched?

    Just something to thing about!

    The Unanimous Declaration
    of the Thirteen United States of America
    When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    Take Our Declaration of Independence Quiz and Test Your Knowledge of America’s Great Freedom Document
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. –Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

    He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

    He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

    He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

    He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

    He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

    He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

    He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

    He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

    He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

    He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

    He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

    He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

    For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

    For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:

    For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:

    For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:

    For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:

    For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:

    For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

    For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

    He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

    He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

    He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

    He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

    He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

    In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

    Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

    We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

  • Bob Bixler

    It became very obvious during his campaign that Barack Obama is a scumbag just as it became evident that Bill Clinton was a scumbag during his campaign. Obama’s goal from the beginning has been to turn America into a socialist society. I guess he figures that if he screws up the economy and everything else enough, he can declare marshal law and just take over. At first, I thought he was just an incompetent, who was nothing besides a lawyer, but his seeming ineptness is a genius plan for what he hopes to accomplish. He has openly expressed admiration for Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, so it is clear where his sympathies lie. If he gets in for a second term, we will all be very soon saying Heil Obama. However, he is not completely to blame. There is a great line from Dire Straits “Making Movies” album that goes, “when you point your finger cuz your plan fell through, you got three more fingers pointing back at you”. Too many of us want the government to take care of us, and unfortunately all of us are getting too much government. I hope it is not too late.

      A local government here, Freeport, had a city meeting about five years ago or so. One citizen stood to comment on an issue before the city commissioners.

      He disagreed with one of the commissioners. The next morning, the commissioner called his boss at a plant here in town. The commissioner then told the boss that the man was to be fired.

      “I can’t do that,” the boss said. “It’s illegal!”

      “No, it isn’t,” the commissioner told him. “I’m the boss here in this town and you do what I tell you!”

    They could always do as a small town north of Houston did several years ago.

    They had a serious problem with writing traffic tickets. Finally the local judge was sentenced to jail for another problem and they ran an election for a new city judge. The city had about 3000 people but had an interstate highway running next to it. They had sixteen cops, a chief of police draing about $120,000 a year salary, etc.

    The new judge ordered the chief of police to stop the ticket writing. The chief refused and informed the judge that HE was the one who decided and the judge HAD to enforce them. The judge locked the courthouse for three months. They ended up with one cop since no salary checks could be written and all ticket money had to be returned since no court was ruling on them. When a court suit was made insisting the judge didn’t have that right, the state supreme court ruled he did.

    I have always been one to “Be Prepared.” My son, who is an Eagle Scout, often laughs at the extent to which I am prepared for emergencies.
    I’ll go back to the now infamous Katrina. 1)Although Ray Nagin had plenty of (city and school) buses on hand, he a) let them be ruined by flood waters, and b) instead of using those buses to evacuate the poor, he left them to fend for themselves. One third of his police force deserted. There were several hundred people who showed up with boats (to help evacuate people) who were turned away. Several truckloads of desperately needed water were also turned away. To make matters worse, the police personnel remaining were instructed to confiscate legally-owned guns. After the mess was (finally) cleaned up and Nagin had brand-new buses (on OUR dime!) He used them to pick voters up from the very cities that became evacuation centers to vote for him. Two days after he was re-elected, he said “I can’t do this job,” but did NOT resign.
    There was plenty of help available, but an inefficient government turned it away.

      “Public Servants” (like Police Officers) should not be so well paid or secure in their jobs they can relax. Those that do so should lose their jobs, immediately if not sooner. I, by the way, work at our local Police Department and most officers would agree with my statement.

      It’s a job you do because you “love it” or it’s a job you shouldn’t be doing. If your intention is not to “serve and protect” then you never should have been there to start with. The pay scale should be such that “no one” is there for the money, and psychological profiling should be routine to keep all the “cowboys” off the force, or at least, to remove them once they’re identified.

      If your neighborhood doesn’t feel safe and secure, organize your own “Neighborhood Watch,” which your local Police will most often be happy to help you accomplish. Such organizations make their job MUCH easier…

    what is being offered is tea party made up of tea baggers good for one spot of tea, all wet and ready for the garbage. These are the ones who should be screaming to top of their lungs for more education especially in American History and lessons in Civic duty. Tea party members are surely not even good as union members ad union members admits their aims and the dead beats who refuse to honor their oath of office should be fired.

    Declaration of Individual Sovereignty

    It is clear from the history of mankind that the mainspring of human progress is a free mind in a free market – - the world of individual sovereigns. Realization of the positive fruits that flow from such a world demands personal reciprocity and commitment to the principles of voluntarism, peacefulness, and individual responsibility, within a societal structure based on codes of law, limiting governance to the primary function of maintaining lawfulness and peace and codifying fundamental rights like those enumerated in the United States Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America. While those documents reflect fundamental principles concerning the nature of humankind and the rights inherent to humanity, the rights enumerated therein are neither derived from nor dependent on the documents. Claimed rights remain spheres of human action that are outside the purview of government except when the principles of peaceful and voluntary interaction are violated. The Constitution, while imperfect, was designed to protect established principles and individual rights derived from them.

    Those fundamental principles include the following:

    1. Each human being, because of the very nature of Mankind, is a unique and sovereign individual-each person is unique biologically, intellectually, and emotionally;

    2. As a sovereign being, it is the responsibility of each individual, through the application of their intellect and labor, to peaceably pursue their own sustenance and that of others they choose to care for;

    3. To successfully pursue sustenance and self-actualization, individuals must be free to choose those options in life, which, in their own judgment, are most consistent with their nature and life goals;

    4. To secure those options, individuals must claim rights. Rights are spheres of individual action, inviolable by other individuals, necessary to the pursuit of individual goals and protection from non-peaceful and predatory actions of other people (enemies – - individual or collective). Such Rights include, but are not limited to the following:

    The individual possession and use of weapons to inhibit and repel enemies, particularly to hold in check predatory tendencies of government. The security of all other rights depends on this fundamental right of individual self-defense;

    Responsible use of spoken, written, or other means of expression;

    Unencumbered public or private religious worship and expression;

    Peaceably obtaining and privately owning and using land and the animate and inanimate natural resources associated with it;

    Personal privacy in all realms;

    Peaceably obtaining and using material goods of any kind;

    Participation in mutually agreed, voluntary, social, political, religious, economic and personal interactions of any kind;

    Self-determination with respect to the creation and compassionate rearing and education of one’s children;

    Freedom from coercion/involuntary servitude of any kind, direct or indirect, [such as onerous taxation and its redistribution] by any entity, individual or collective (political, religious, governmental, military).

    Power loaned by sovereigns to governors often corrupts governors and leads to the grossest of civil abuses. Therefore, the power of governors in the State and Federal branches of the United States government are constrained in their spheres of action by the rights and power of the people, codified in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and civil and criminal law derived there from.
    Nevertheless, because of several weaknesses of the Constitution, changes to it, and methods of implementing it, there has been severe erosion of the people’s rights. Constitutional weaknesses include the Treaty Clause, the Interstate Commerce Clause, and the allowance of Executive Orders. These weaknesses have been exploited to make the government of the United States unacceptably powerful and arbitrary. Amendments contrary to the original spirit of the Constitution include the 16th and 17th. Harmful ways of implementing the Constitution include arbitrary rulings by the judiciary, and abrogation of responsibility by legislators and regulators.
    Pursuant to the foregoing, I do hereby affirm my belief in and commitment to the principles outlined above and my standing as a sovereign being. I claim my life – - only I have the authority to choose its direction. I do not recognize the authority of any government to violate, in any way, those rights enumerated above or any other of my rights, except when I willfully violate the rights of others. I commit myself to the protection of my own, and my neighbor’s, rights by whatever means necessary, against all enemies of our liberties and self-direction.
    My countrymen who have taken an oath to support and defend the United States Constitution, particularly those of you in law enforcement and the armed services, recognize the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights as the essential foundations of our Constitution. Your oath is to support the principles of individual freedom and limited government – - not simply the formal structure of a government or the people who control it. Laws, orders, policies and regulations that are contrary to our founding documents and the principles from which they derive have no legitimate standing. You violate your solemn oath when you aid and abet any such proclamations and enactments – - be true to your oaths.

    “As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world,” said Sanders. “This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you’re-on-your-own individualism for everyone else.” Included in the audit findings, the Fed provided trillions of dollars in financial aid from South Korea to Scotland.

    There is a solution. Throw your money and other support, including voting, to the Libertarian Party. They are for less government, free market society, equal rights for everyone (including homosexual marriage), and everything they stand for spells LIBERTY to me. Like it or not folks, our constitution guarantees equal rights to everyone. We all have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

      Too bad the majority of voters are ignorant even for the large elections. They do their research the day of, or the hours leading up to when they vote instead of doing it properly.
      Perhaps people wouldn’t feel the need to vote for the ‘lesser of the two evils’ if they actually prepared better.

    • mike

      I agree that illegals shouldn’t get public support, however if you make massive cuts (or wipe it out entirely) how do you make sure those that are legal and need it still get it. I’ve known a few people that went on public assistance because they needed it badly, then when they got back on their feet they went off of it. It serves a needed purpose for those with their backs up against the wall.

  • Robert

    Some Governments are declaring was on it’s citizens. They have become a monster and need to be paired back. I just heard a podcast regarding Gould AZ. Thank God for the Patriot’s that are standing to fight their nonsense. Vote the bums out.

  • First Shirt

    During the twenty-two months preceding Obama’s announcement he would run for President, there were eight House and Senate Bills proposed to change or eliminate the “natural born citizen” clause of the Constitution. This is a matter of public record, as are all proposed legislation. Eight times our illustrious leaders in Congress attempted to pave the way for Obama. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=317705

    This certainly smacks of a conspiracy to allow a Constitutionally unqualified individual to attain the position of POTUS. Obama could have been born on the Whitehouse lawn and not meet the requirement because both of his parents were not US citizens.

  • Delores Smith

    BOB LIVINGSTON – GREAT ARTICLE – Thanks…
    Every action that Obama has taken since he’s been President has been to stir up and anger the American people. This is his method to gain more control. It’s called, “Confuse, anger and weaken the masses.”
    Guess what, Obama? It will not work. You are too transparent. I know what you are thinking before you open your mouth. I will tell you when it’s time to start packing.
