What First Amendment?

Once again we have the left trampling on our Constitutional rights. From Breitbart by Ben Shapiro: An amendment is moving through the Senate Judiciary Committee that would essentially allow the government to determine who is a journalist for purposes of legal protection of sources. For purposes of protecting a source, a “journalist” under law would be anyone who: Works or worked for “an entity or service that disseminates news or information by means of newspaper; nonfiction book; wire service; news agency; news website, mobile application or other news or information service…news program; magazine or other periodical…or through television or radio … Continue reading

Government Spying on Credit Card Transactions Now

As if tapping our phones and our computers weren’t enough, now they are monitoring our credit card transactions. From the Washington Examiner – Consumer Financial Protection Bureau officials are seeking to monitor four out of every five U.S. consumer credit card transactions this year — up to 42 billion transactions – through a controversial data-mining program, according to documents obtained by the Washington Examiner.

The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 1.16 billion … Continue reading

Some 9/11 Thoughts.

Today we observe the worst attack on United States soil since Pearl Harbor. This piece is solely my thoughts, and remembrances of the fateful day in history.   On the morning of September 11, 2001, I was at the Ford Engineering lot in Dearborn, loading 6 test trucks to take up to another Ford testing facility about an hour and a half northeast of Detroit. While I was loading, the fellow I was hauling the units for came up, and said he had heard on the news the World Trade Center had been hit by a plane. He didn’t know … Continue reading

Elementary Students Being Taught Government is ‘Family’

From TheBlaze: Fourth-grade students in Illinois are learning that “government is like a nation’s family” because it sets rules and takes care of needs such as health care and education. So says a worksheet for social studies homework that was distributed to students at East Prairie School in Skokie, Ill, complete with a drawing of Uncle Same cradling a baby that represents the citizens. Students are then prompted to answer 10 questions comparing government and families, including how their family provides for their health care needs and how the government does the same, and what rules families set and what … Continue reading

It has also been damaging to science, as scientists  adjust both data and even theory to … Continue reading

Government Racketeers

“A racket is a service that is fraudulently offered to solve a problem, such as for a problem that does not actually exist, will not be affected, or would not otherwise exist. Conducting a racket is racketeering.[1] Particularly, the potential problem may be caused by the same party that offers to solve it, although that fact may be concealed, with the specific intent to engender continual patronage for this party.” ˜Wikipedia Sound familiar? Back in the 60’s and 70’s, liberals in the U.S. decided marriage was an unnecessary and outdated tradition (now that gays want to get married marriage has, … Continue reading

“Means Testing” and Marxism

“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!” ˜Karl Marx In the battle over government spending, we hear a lot about the need to cut “entitlement spending,” which generally means Social Security (SS) and Medicare.  What qualifies these as “entitlements,” I assume, is the obligation that’s incurred when we pass a law (unconstitutional as it may be) that requires people to pay into these programs in exchange for some promise of payment or service in the future.  Thus you are “entitled” to your promised benefit. The fact that both democrats and republicans are talking about “means testing” as … Continue reading
