ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS, MR. PRESIDENT

"Actions speak louder than words." An old tried & true proverb said to me by my Mother over an entire childhood, and passed on by many common sense thinking families. Obama's State of the Union (SOTU) pep rally was so full of hyperbole, I lost count.

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS, MR. PRESIDENT

Obama used his SOTU speech to…

Judge strikes down healthcare reform law



"We'll continue to operate as we have previously and suspect that the states will do the same," said the senior administration official, who asked not to be named.

 

"Obviously this case will be appealed ... and so implementation would proceed apace ... This is not the last word by any means," the official said.

 

This person who said that…

My Miracle Message

We are all now acutely aware that our world is tottering.  Any time, we could be witness to a drastic change.  How we handle it is of great public concern. I was at this very point 35 years ago—at a jumping off place—forced to jump into an unknown void.  Welcome to the new age. I know it well.

 

For the past 10 years, I’ve been writing what is on my mind first thing in the morning.  Strangely, something new is revealed to me every morning. I’ve been blogging my thoughts here. I…

Term Limits

Sunday January 30th 2011

 

Todd Platts lies to his constituent

 

The York Sunday News reported that once again Todd Platts PA-19 proposes legislation for Congressional Term Limits. However like every time before, this bill has no chance of passing. Todd Platts has again shown that he is all show. The York Sunday News quoted Mr. Platts as saying that he will probably run for a seventh term in direct reversal of his Campaign Promise that he would self induce term…

The Handwriting on the Wall

I know change from personal experience. At first, the idea of change was terribly frightening. I was forced to change, but the orthodoxy remained fixed, exactly like it is in Egypt right now.

I was confronted with many hurdles. With determination, though, I got on my path of destiny. In the end, all of my dreams came true. And so it will be in our world.

My Thought on the State of the Union Address

President Obama made his Ronald Reagan Address, with this exception:  instead of self-government, it was his government that is going to do wonders, for a cost of trillions of dollars.  Obama’s innovation is certain to take us back.

 

I’m occupied at the present writing a book, my personal experience tied to the Constitution and divine humanity, which should be complete within four months. It will give you information on how to deal with the drastic change about to take place.…

As I watched the Presidents speech on The State of the Union I thought I heard remarks about fiscal responsibility and reducing the redundancy of BIG GOVERNMENT (ak the Salmon solution ). Shortly after those statements I heard INVESTMENT in this project, or that program. How can we…

FAIR TAX ?

The last few days I have been contacted several times by good intentioned folks who want me to support HR25, the so-called Fair Tax Initiative. Well, I cannot do that.

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
