Where is the ACLU?

One group that has been uncharacteristically silent in the midst of all these violation of our civil liberties is the ACLU. The motto from the ACLU website: The ACLU is our nation's guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.
So now the question remains how are they upholding the liberties of Americans? In their own words: The ACLU also works to extend rights to segments of our population that have traditionally been denied their rights, including people of color; women; lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender people; prisoners; and people with disabilities.

So basically they are more interested in special interests groups, and not the general public. They have no real concern with the liberties of the general public, they only care about their self-absorbed minority groups. And now with that minority (the progressives) in power, they are silent about the government abuse of our civil liberties. So much for another liberal, whiny, self-absorbed special interest group claiming all along to be protecting the people from the government. You would think that with all the groups that sprung up to help us against our previously Republican government, we would be protected against all government intrusion into our lives. NOT so, the liberals care nothing about protecting anyone from their buddies in the DC, they only care about their own special interests. HYPOCRISY, is running rampant, the ultimate bigots are those who claim to support the civil liberties of all citizens, and then turn a deaf ear on what is happening now. Eric Holder should be run out of town for saying he would never try a case where the defendant was white. That is racism, and the blacks are the perpetrators.
We are in deep doodoo! and it is the liberals who have the power to change things, but are the ones abusing the people. That is despotism! So where is the ACLU, they are standing behind the abusers and even applauding them. SHAME! It is time for you to apologize, and do your job, as stated on your website.

When will the revolution begin?

So the Democrats think that they can sway Scott Walker to give up his crazy idea of stopping the train? After all, Walker was much more compliant when he was a lowly state assemblyman, and they think he can be made to see the error of his ways. WTF do these doofus liberals think is going on in this state? Not only are they no longer in charge of the governorship, but they lost the Senate last time, and now the Assembly will be in Republican (and hopefully more conservative) control. And they still think that the conservatives are the ones who need to compromise. What arrogant bastards. You LOST! We don't want your ideas anymore, we want some fresh ideas, something that doesn't stink to high heaven of payoffs, and corruption. Wisconsin is a red state, it has been a very long time since common sense reigned in this state, and finally we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. And what is the reaction of the loser liberals? They still think that we need to compromise with them. NO NO NO the days of compromise are OVER! Hopefully the new government will not be swayed by these arrogant mothers, and retain the common sense ideas that made the voters trust them. I am not sure how long it will be, if the bamster has his way, but it is still WE THE PEOPLE that control the direction on this state, and the nation.
I am beginning to wonder when the right will start adopting the violent tactics of the liberal left, like Obama's friend and mentor Bill Ayres? If you want to you better get your guns now, it won't be long and the progressives (nee Nazis) will take away our right to protect ourselves against our enemies, foreign and domestic.
It is just coming at us so fast now, the new Nazis are pulling out all the stops now, so many changes from so many directions, it is hard to know what to protest next. Like when a judge in OK decided that a constitutional amendment cannot become law despite the fact that the people voted to amend their state Constitution, the world has been turned upside down. January is coming and hopefully we can regain some sanity, it may take awhile to undo the damage done to our nation by the Muslim in the white house, but I believe with God's help we can do it. Actually, it will be only with God's help that we can do anything.

Nobody likes an extremist

No matter whether we are complaining about government in general, the current president, or the TSA, nobody wants to believe that we are losing our country. Chronic complainers, extremists, bigots, racists...all labels for those who disagree and are cynical. Now it appears that if we disagree with being groped, fondled, and sexually assaulted at an airport, we will be investigated and our names added to a watch list. Never mind that the TSA has NEVER stopped a bomber or terrorist. American citizens, including nuns and 6-year old children, are targeted. The constitution, the beloved founding document and guarantor of freedom, explicitly forbids "unreasonable searches and seizures." If a police officer patted down every motorist, we would revolt (I hope). But because the government says this must be done to prevent an attack in the skies, we allow humiliation and groping of our genitals!! Now we are told that the molestation by the government will be extended to rail and buses. I am saddened, discouraged, and angry. My country is soon to be gone. I don't know if tyranny will destroy us, financial meltdown, or a foreign invader, but we are so weak, our citizenry so complacent, that we are in mortal danger. I do not feel free to suggest the few options that exist to save our freedoms, but the despotism of our current government scares me to the point of desperation. God save us!

Did you take the oath?

I took an oath to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic when I joined the service, there is no statute of limitations on that oath, even if the enemy is our commander in chief. Everyone who took that oath before serving this country needs to remember it on November 2nd.

Does Hollywood know what they are saying?

On Friday night’s Real Time actor/director/writer Rob Reiner contended all the Tea Party needs to match Adolph Hitler is a charismatic leader:

He wasn’t a majority guy, but he was charismatic and they were having bad economic times – just like we are now – people were out of work, they needed jobs and a guy came along and rallied the troops. My fear is that the Tea Party gets a charismatic leader, because all they’re selling is fear and anger and that’s all Hitler sold. “I’m angry and I’m frightened and you should hate that guy over there.”

“Right,” Bill Maher chirped in as Reiner, to applause from HBO’s Los Angeles audience, declared: “And that’s what they’re doing.”

Okay only one major thing wrong with this analogy. "Hitler rose to a place of prominence in the early years of the party (1919 - 1923) largely as a result of his considerable skills in oratory, organization and promotion. He was aided in part by his willingness to use violence in advancing his political objectives and to recruit party members who were willing to do the same." The Germans were facing a time of economic chaos, and the party in power seemed helpless to do anything about it. So the Nazi party, with Hitler as their charismatic leader "offered scapegoats and solutions. To the economically depressed he promised to despoil “Jew financiers,” to workers he promised security."

Now who does that sound like? Like the tea party of which Reiner speaks or of some other charismatic and violent leader, who has found his scapegoat (George W. Bush) upon which he has hung all the evils of the failed economy? Who do we know who is not above using strong arm techniques to get his agenda passed? Who do we know who has promised security to the workers (i.e. the unemployed, the uninsured). Who do we know who has written a manifesto (Mein Kampf vs. Dreams from My Father).

I am sorry Mr Reiner, but the actual Hitleresque leader here is already in power and he is consolidating that power like Hitler did, "the Nazis gathered enough electoral support to become the largest political party in the Reichstag, and Hitler's blend of political acuity, deceptiveness and cunning converted the party's non-majority but plurality status into effective governing."

Do you think the Riener has done any similar research before he made his idiotic statement? Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it, what is the thorn in the liberals side is that the German people did not revolt against their Hitler, like the Tea Party is revolting against our Hitler. We do not want to see another Third Reich take over and destroy our society, the Tea Party movement is not the precursor of the Nazi Party, it is the antidote.

Christine O'Donnell & the first amendment

As much as the left would love to hear Mrs. O'Donnell misspeak and reveal lack of understanding of the first amendment, it didn't happen! Sorry mainstream media. She was MORE informed than her liberal opponent. He thought "separation of church and state" was found in the first amendment, when in fact the "establishment of religion" was prohibited by the amendment. The "separation of church and state" is an INTERPRETATION that the Supreme Court has used in several decisions. But like the "right to privacy" that has been used to support "right" to abortion, those words, and some would say, even the principle, does not exist in the Constitution. It's time to revisit the founding documents of this country, in which case Christine O'Donnell, and conservatism as an ideology, will be upheld, defended, and preserved. With conservatism comes protection of the rights that are found in the Constitution. Now is the time. A conservative victory is a victory for all Americans and our beloved nation.

Multiculturalism is a failure. Like every other progressive pogrom.

Merkel says German multicultural society has failed

Attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany have "utterly failed", Chancellor Angela Merkel says.

In a speech in Potsdam, she said the so-called "multikulti" concept - where people would "live side-by-side" happily - did not work.

Mrs Merkel's comments come amid recent outpourings of strong anti-immigrant feeling from mainstream politicians.

A recent survey showed that more than 30% of Germans believed Germany was "overrun by foreigners".

Mrs Merkel stressed that immigrants living in Germany needed to do more to integrate, including learning to speak German.

"Anyone who does not immediately speak German", she said, "is not welcome".

In August, Thilo Sarrazin, a senior official at Germany's central bank, said that "no immigrant group other than Muslims is so strongly connected with claims on the welfare state and crime". Mr Sarrazin has since resigned.

Another nation turning back from the failure Obama is bound and determine we follow.

Progressives love the idea that they know what is the best for the people who cannot take care of themselves, but in case after case (and this is only the latest), their programs fail. Here is the United States we are seeing just what they have done to our education system, every year we pour more and more and more money into it, and nothing changes, our kids are still falling behind. It is not because of the lack of money, nor a lack of teachers, the main reason is because education has become a huge black hole, and despite more money being allocated each year, the actual money that gets to the classroom get smaller and smaller. The administrators, unions, and Department of Education gobble up most of the tax revenues before a dime even gets to the local school district. And yet, every year the liberals claim the problem is not enough money. Enough lies is what they need to be told.

If you really want to see a city that progressives have built (or rather run into the ground) visit Detroit, This used to be a beautiful thriving city until liberals got their hands on it, and now. Well sorry to say, I wouldn't want to sent the worst criminals in the world to live there.

And now, these same liberal (progressive) Democrats have gotten their oily hands all over our health care system. This will be worse than Detroit, or Germany. It is doomed to total destruction, and utter failure. And it will take down our whole society with it if left unchecked. Time to tell these progressive destroyers to sit down and shut up, socialism does NOT work. Period.

Debates, Debates, Debates, do we know anything?

So this has been a week of many congressional debates. This is the time of the election season when the electorate gets to see and hear exactly what the candidates stand for without the media's spin cycle.
In Nevada, Harry Reid looked like an skeleton with nothing new to say. So Harry tell me what is so wrong with "privatizing" many of the national programs that you Congress has proven they can't run? And still, the old line, we could save millions if we got rid of all the waste; so do it already! All talk and no action that is what the liberals dems are all about, that and getting rich on the public's dime. Harry must have been a damn good lawyer to make so much money so quickly, but of course, his bogus land deals had nothing whatsoever to do with his making millions, all while on a "fixed income". Come on Harry, do you really think anyone is buying what you are selling? Keep up the good fight Sharon Angle.
In Delaware, Coons had to go all the way back to 1973 to find a Supreme Court Case that he thought O'Donnell would object to. And then he got the actual decision wrong, the case was not specifically about abortion, but about states having the right to make their own decisions about abortion, very similar to the health care litigation that states are pushing through the courts right now. And if you gave money to a campaign, would you want the opposition to know that? Is that right? What is to stop the opposition candidate from harassing the other sides supporters? We all know the so-called "tolerant" Dems are not above doing just that, look at all the hate mail that conservative talk shows get from these "tolerant" liberals.
And although the race is not for the senate, I loved it when Jerry Brown had no idea how a job is created. So, he is right now in Congress writing "job creation" legislation and he has no idea how jobs are created? What a bunch of wieners, and whiners, they all need to go back home and face the people they screwed while they were in D.C. Maybe that is the main reason they don't want to go home.

As a small afterthought, wouldn't it be great if the first act the new Congress takes is to order an investigation of every member of the past congress to find any wrong doing on their parts, you know like extortion, bribery, misappropriation of funds, hiring illegals, tax fraud, insider trading, ponzi schemes, etc (the list is too long to be exhaustive), and then put every one of them on trial.
If we let these criminals get away with this, it will be our own fault, we have no one to blame but ourselves. Just because they write the laws, doesn't mean they get to break them willy-nilly. They need to be held accountable.

So why did you vote Democrat?



When your friends can't explain why they voted for Democrats, give them this list. They can then pick a reason .

10. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

8. I voted Democrat because Freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

7. I voted Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

6. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

5. I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies through abortion so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

4. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

3. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the democrats see fit.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

1. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my ass that it is unlikely that I'll ever have another point of view.

I'll keep my Freedom, my God and my Guns... You keep the Change...

I am proud to be American!

The Doctrine of scientists

The so-called scientific community thinks they are the experts in their field and therefore can tell us what they call the truth and we are to take their word for it and believe them? This is the problem that gave us global warming. Now Stephen Hawking says that God is irrelevant to Big Bang theory. Okay, so was he there when the Big Bang happened, did he have his Polaroid camera out to capture the moment? Who is he to say that God is irrelevant?
His theory of the Big Bang is LOADED with unscientific irregularities. that have no answers in our current understanding. And so the physicists come up with all kinds of imaginary solutions, that require more faith to believe in than any religious doctrine requires. Some examples: dark matter, dark energy, expansion, flatness, and lumpy universe. All of these pose great consternation to the physicists, and yet they shrug off serious dissent with nothing more than a smug dismissal, simply because the detractor hasn't a PhD in their specific field. I am sorry to inform you experts, I am not a rube, I know of what I speak, and I do not agree that you are an expert in anything.
Climate scientists all over the world think we are destroying the planet. Yet their data has been tainted, not only were certain numbers exaggerated, but other data was dismissed as irrelevant. They lied to us, they cooked the numbers to get the results they wanted, not the real results, not the scientific findings, but they faked the data. The faked the theory, they lied to us. And the politicians and global whiners who continue to push this fake theory down our throats need to be prosecuted. Global climate change, or whatever name they want to refer to it now, is bad science. No, it is not science at all! It is doctrine.
Another example of the doctrinal zeal of science comes from the theory of evolution. Another theory that has numerous complications. Just to name a few, the fossil record, the time problem, missing links, and intricacy problem. Not to mention the problems that are raised by cosmology that would preclude any attempt at evolution of species on this planet. Evolutionists use circular logic in all their arguments, for example, there are records of homo-sapiens found in the fossil record at time periods that they should not have been. The fact is that these fossils have been found, and because they cannot be there due to the theories time frame, the fossils have to be suspect not the theory.
Oh, and another point, since when does a consensus of scientists simply agreeing about a theory make it scientific, or the truth? The problem I see is that scientists think that they are in the elite. That because they have the education they are the only ones who can understand these theories. The regular man hasn't any idea about the intricacies of their area of expertise, so therefore they cannot understand anything about the theories. Since when did science become the sole possession of the experts? Science is meant to be shared with everyone, not kept secret amongst a small group of elites.

Reaganomics v. Obamanomics

Larry Elder

©Creators Syndicate

President Reagan, in the early '80s, inherited an economy with 13.5 percent inflation, 21 percent prime interest rates, and an unemployment rate that reached 10.8 percent. He addressed this by doing the opposite of what Obama has done.

So Ronald Reagan inherited a bad economy. He had every right to point fingers and blame the previous administration, but did he? What was Reagan's response to the economic woes of the nation? He rolled up his sleeves and got to work on bringing the economy back, exactly the opposite of Obama. Reagan did the job he was hired to do by the American public. What is Obama doing? What kind of job evaluation would he get from his employers (we the people)? Obviously his poll numbers are telling us what type of evaluation he is getting. Two thumbs down. He gets a failing grade. He would be ejected from college. Basically its all bad.

So a pastor wants to burn the Koran to prove a point, to calm down the extremist Muslims. If the news media were really concerned about the troops' safety, they would just drop the story and make it a non-story. But no, they are accomplices in fanning the flames of violence--the hypocrites! That being said, let's consider the issue logically. It is completely legal to burn books. It is not sensitive to burn the Muslims' holy book. It is legal to build a mosque at ground zero. It is not sensitive to desecrate the site of Americans who died there. I see a pattern and a compromise here. I say the pastor should offer to stop the burning if the Muslims stop the building. Fair enough?

18 Signs That America Is Rotting Right In Front Of Our Eyes

18 Signs That America Is Rotting Right In Front Of Our Eyes

Sometimes it isn't necessary to quote facts and figures about government debt, unemployment and the trade deficit in order to convey how badly America is decaying. The truth is that millions of Americans can watch America rotting right in front of their eyes by stepping out on their front porches. Record numbers of homes have been foreclosed on and in some of the most run down cities as many as a third of all houses have been abandoned.

Unemployment remains at depressingly high levels and the number of Americans on food stamps continues to set new records month after month. Due to severe budget cuts, class sizes are exploding and school programs are being eliminated. In some areas of the U.S. schools are even going to four day weeks. With little to no funding available, bridges are crumbling and street lights are being turned off in many communities.

In some areas, asphalt roads are actually being ground up and turned back into gravel roads because they are less expensive to maintain. There aren't even as many police available to patrol America's decaying cities because budget problems have forced local communities across the U.S. to lay off tens of thousands of officers.

Once upon a time, the American people worked feverishly to construct beautiful, shining communities from coast to coast. But now we get to watch those communities literally crumble and decay in slow motion. Nothing lasts forever, but for those of us who truly love America it is an incredibly sad thing to witness what is now happening to the great nation that our forefathers built.

The following are 18 signs that America is rotting right in front of our eyes....

1 - Due to extreme budget cuts, school systems across the United States are requiring their students to bring more supplies with them than ever this year. In Moody, Alabama elementary school students are being told to bring paper towels, garbage bags and liquid soap with them to school. At Pauoa Elementary School in Honolulu, Hawaii all students are being required to show up with a four-pack of toilet paper.

2 - According to the American Association of School Administrators, 48 percent of all U.S. school districts are reporting budget cuts of 10 percent or less for the upcoming school year, and 30 percent of all U.S. school districts are reporting cuts of 11 to 25 percent.

3 - In Chicago, drastic budget cuts could result in an average class size of 37 students.

4 - The governor of Hawaii has completely shut down that state's schools on Fridays - moving teachers and students to a four day week.

5 - According to the Federal Highway Administration, approximately a third of America's major roadways are already in substandard condition.

6 - All over the United States, asphalt roads are being ground up and are being replaced with gravel because it is cheaper to maintain. The state of South Dakota has transformed over 100 miles of asphalt road into gravel over the past year, and 38 out of the 83 counties in the state of Michigan have now turned some of their asphalt roads into gravel roads.

7 - According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, more than 25 percent of America's nearly 600,000 bridges need significant repairs or are burdened with more traffic than they were designed to carry.

8 - In a desperate attempt to save money, the city of Colorado Springs turned off a third of its streetlights and put its police helicopters up for auction.

9 - The state of Arizona has eliminated funding for full-day kindergarten and has shut down a number of state parks.

10 - Over the past year, approximately 100 of New York's state parks and historic sites have had to cut services and reduce hours.

11 - In Georgia, the county of Clayton recently eliminated its entire public bus system in order to save 8 million dollars.

12 - Elsewhere in Georgia, 30,000 people recently turned out to pick up only 13,000 applications for government-subsidized housing. A near-riot ensued and 62 people were left injured. The amazing thing is that all of this commotion was just to get on a waiting list. There are no aid vouchers even available at this time.

13- In the city of Philadelphia, rolling fire station "brown outs" recently cost a 12 year old autistic boy named Frank Marasco his life.

14- Oakland, California Police Chief Anthony Batts says that due to severe budget cuts there are a number of crimes that his department will simply not be able to respond to any longer. The crimes that the Oakland police will no longer be responding to include grand theft, burglary, car wrecks, identity theft and vandalism.

15- The sheriff's department in Ashtabula County, Ohio has been slashed from 112 to 49 deputies, and there is now just one vehicle remaining to patrol all 720 square miles of the county.

16 - Of 315 municipalities the New Jersey State Policemen's union recently canvassed, more than half indicated that they were planning to lay off police officers.

17 - Not that the criminals are doing that much better. Things have gotten so bad in Camden, New Jersey that not even the drug dealers are spending their money anymore.

18 - Almost everyone knows someone who has been severely impacted by this economic downturn. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey has found that 81 percent of American adults know someone who is out of work and looking for a job.

So can't the states just step up and start spending more money and fix these things?

Well, no. The truth is that the states are absolutely broke. Quite a few of the states are actually on the verge of default, and there is no getting around the fact that budget cuts that are much more severe are going to be required in the years ahead.

So can't the U.S. government step in and bail out the states?

Well, yes, but as we have detailed previously, the U.S. government is literally drowning in a sea of red ink. The U.S. government is already spending an amount of money equivalent to approximately 25.4 percent of GDP this year.

How much more money can the U.S. government possibly spend?

To get an idea of just how bad things are already, the IMF says that in order to fix the U.S. government budget deficit, taxes need to be doubled on every single U.S. citizen.

Are you ready to pay double the taxes?

No matter how you slice it, the U.S. is in a massive amount of financial trouble and the American people are starting to realize this fact. In fact, one new poll found that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the U.S. economy will get worse before it gets better.

But unfortunately things are not going to get "better" - at least in the long-term. The decay and the rot that have already set in are only going to get worse.

These problems did not appear overnight and they are not going to be solved overnight. Our leaders have been making very bad decisions for decades, and all of those bad decisions are starting to catch up with us.

But perhaps you disagree. Feel free to tell us what you think in the comments section below....

Election Theft Underway in Wisconsin

Election Theft Underway in Wisconsin

By Thomas Lifson

More evidence the Obama Democrats are playing by Chicago rules, and rapidly altering the nature of our political regime. Nancy Pelosi's strong arm legislative tactics have metastasized to the state level in Wisconsin.

According to a Republican Wisconsin state senator, Democrats there plan to change the election rules in November with inadequate scrutiny. In other words, a stealth attack on the integrity of the electoral process. Like ObamaCare, this is a change-the-game legislative proposal that could not withstand scrutiny.

Wisconsin Senator Glenn Grothman alerts us that Democrats are trying to push a radical 72-page bill less than 16 hours after its hearing. He writes:

Senate Bill 640 [is] a bill which radically changes Wisconsin election law going into this year's election. The 72-page bill was not even introduced until March 23.

Senate Bill 640 makes many changes to Wisconsin election law including the following:
  • 1) The bill allows municipalities to set up satellite absentee ballot stations for early voting. These stations apparently could be done in college dorms, outside of bars, or other inappropriate locals.
  • 2) The current open government practice of allowing any citizen to challenge individual ballots would end as monitoring of elections of statewide or national significance would be restricted to people who live within that polling district.
  • 3) Permanent absentee ballot status would be established in which ballots would be sent to people who historically do not vote in low-turnout elections. Currently, permanent absentee ballot status is restricted to people who are confined because of age, physical illness, infirmity, or disabled infinitely making them unable to get to the polls.
  • 4) University IDs could be offered as proof of residence for registration and voting.
  • 5) The increased cost of processing and mailing out the additional absentee ballots is an unfunded mandate that local municipalities will not be able to absorb.
  • 6) Local municipalities will be forced to hire speakers of a foreign language if at least 5% of the adults in their district are not English proficient.
  • 7) The bill proposes to set up a statewide database of voters that the authors said they would hope to link up to a national database.

"This is a shocking power grab some extremist Democrats are trying to change our laws so that more unqualified voters are able to vote and so that we are not able to determine whether or not voting fraud in fact took place," said Grothman. "That is clearly the motivation behind trying to have a much larger number of permanent absentee voters as well as preventing an individual outside a polling place to object to inappropriate voting."

"Ironically, the voting change that most Wisconsin citizens request, Voter ID, is about the only thing not included in this far-reaching bill that is being fast-tracked through the State Legislature."

The far left has taken over the Democratic Party, and is aggressive changing the rules so as to entrench itself in power, regardless of the will of the people. The same Alinskyite mentality that rammed through ObamaCare. Rules are what you make the other guy live up to. ("We make ‘em upas we go along.")

Now, with the same anti-transparency approach used on ObamaCare, Wisconsin Democrats plan to close down scrutiny while they tailor election practices to benefit themselves.

Chicago rules ruthlessness coupled to a far left structural agenda. Precisely the brew that Saul Alinsky created when he began his work with community organizing on Chicago's South Side and took up residence in Hyde Park.

Our democratic process is being degraded, moving in a distinctly unpleasant direction: a ruling party rigging elections, paying off its allied groups, practicing predatory governance with regard to thebusiness class, which it regards as pariahs. A compliant media supplies propaganda extolling the leader, and framing the news to portray the governing class in the best light. Workers are kept in line with unions.

Are there any honest Democrats out there willing to denounce this hijacking of the electoral process? Those who claim to be thoughtful liberals ought to take a look at the corruption machines being designed in Wisconsin.

Tyranny creeps in one step at a time.

Bin laden and obama are same

See for yourself, and you make up your own mind.

Who is actually paying these people?

Have you driven by this gang on the side of the road? We see this every year during construction season. Maybe this is why these projects cost so much money, and who is paying for this, you me and all the other taxpayers. And if that isn't enough, these people all probably make more than you do, even the guy in the hole doing the only, actual work.

Listen up, we need to hear this

Racial profiling gone bad

When Are Americans Going To Stop Acting Like Sheep?
(Read WP posts from Melissa Clouthier) | (Read MT posts from Melissa Clouthier) | rss

Does anyone like the airport screening process? Does anyone believe it makes a lick of security difference? Does the screening process save us?

No, it gets us this:
That same screener started emptying her wallet. "He was taking out the receipts and looking at them," she said.

"I understand that TSA is tasked with strengthening national security but [it] surely does not need to know what I purchased at Kohl's or Wal-Mart," she wrote in her complaint, which she sent me last week.

She says she asked what he was looking for and he replied, "Razor blades." She wondered, "Wouldn't that have shown up on the metal detector?"

In a side pocket she had tucked a deposit slip and seven checks made out to her and her husband, worth about $8,000.

Her thought: "Oh, my God, this is none of his business."

Two Philadelphia police officers joined at least four TSA officers who had gathered around her. After conferring with the TSA screeners, one of the Philadelphia officers told her he was there because her checks were numbered sequentially, which she says they were not.

"It's an indication you've embezzled these checks," she says the police officer told her. He also told her she appeared nervous. She hadn't before that moment, she says.

She protested when the officer started to walk away with the checks. "That's my money," she remembers saying. The officer's reply? "It's not your money."

At this point she told the officers that she had a good explanation for the checks, but questioned whether she had to tell them.

"The police officer said if you don't tell me, you can tell the D.A."

How about these concepts? Probable cause. Search warrant. Personal property.

Just let passengers care for themselves. Riding a plane is like being a helpless sheep before the wolves of evil and also flight attendants, but I repeat myself. This screening is just an excuse to torment people.

The cost of War vs. Stimulus

Cost of War in Iraq & Afghanistan $1,070,064,542,199 (1.07 trillion)

Total cost of the stimulus package over $1.17 trillion

You do the math.

What do we see as the benefit of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan? And then ask what benefit have we gotten from the stimulus?

The war is actually a better deal for the money we have spent. At least we have seen some improvement in the war on terror and the fate of the Iraqi people. But we have seen nothing from Obama's stimulus package, it seems as if the money has just gone down a black hole. They can't even account for it all. Our economy still stinks and umemployment hasn't changed, the real estate market is sluggish, and businesses are hoarding cash. So who's policies are the better bargain?
