America's Destiny

Don’t be angry; don’t be afraid. The destiny of America is the destiny of the individual. This has been known since time immemorial. It was incorporated into the U. S. Constitution and ordained, made sacred by the American people. The government of the United States is of the people for the people. Therefore, for the individual, my Constitution does not favor one individual over another. Every…

Why we are poor

Vice President Biden loves to say that a rich nation (America)

percent of America pays no income tax.

Taxation without representation Lakecountry NY

I have no representation while Obama Democrats say with an open smile; "Once we pass this bill we can see what is in it", Politicians swear they have read each bill though it is physically impossible, Stimulus plans that amounts to making air drops of cash over large cities. Taxation is replaced by earning redistribution. Stealing Pork is more important than fairly serving our national needs.

Meanwhile our NY Governor Patterson delays replacement of Massa (Tickle freak) because a…

The American Way is the Insane Way

I was a high school senior when I volunteered for the U. S. Army Air Corps. I was made a pre-aviation cadet. I dreamed of sitting behind a powerful engine and flying into the wild blue yonder. On October 12, 1943, twenty-five days after I turned eighteen, raring to go, I was inducted. Right off the bat, my dream of flying was shattered. I was told no more air cadets were needed. Why was I…

OBAMA AND DEMS WITH ADVANTAGE?

Last Sunday morning, as I basked in the sunlight outside a coffee shop with the New York Times, I came upon an op ed piece entitled "Big Money's Alarming Political Edge."

Points of Interest

A man with deep-seated faith in himself would not have connected with Marxist teaching at Harvard; would not have attended Reverend Wright’s church 20 years; would not have been a community organizer in South Chicago.

Hold them to the fire.

I didn't say VOTE Libertarian and dilute the Republican party on my last post, I just say register that way to not let the Republicans feel so secure in thinking our votes are given.

My lost my job twice because of Liberals taxing the industry I worked in all of my life and their regulations. Now I am 50 years old and the opportunities are gone, thanks to those like Obama.

Why I Joined the Tea Party Tonight

I joined the Tea Party tonight because I believe that the future of America is hanging by a thread. I believe in the principles set forth by the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. I personally was raised in a "whitebread" community in a country club in NJ in the 1970's and raised to believe that all men/women are created equally and deserve the right to strive for excellence which I have done & achieved. I am willing to fight because although…

Just thinking out loud

We, as a nation, are so far into the demise of America that it will take a sacrifice greater than the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and every other war we’ve fought here in America. These wars were fought essentially to preserve our principles and to defend our borders (and maybe even oil). But if you really believe this country is reversible from its current path, then don’t we need to begin with its people? A great country such as ours, need great leaders. But I also contend that our… Continue

Lets change our party affiliation to Libertarian to hold the Republicans accountable.

I have been a registered Republican all of my adult life. I am moving to Fort Mill, SC and when I register to vote this time, I am registering Libertarian! WHY? When the Republicans had all 3 branches of government they BLEW it BIG TIME. I held my nose and voted for them knowing all to well what the outcome would be if Obama got elected. Send the Republicans a strong message. Change your party affiliation to Libertarian. Send them a message that we don't want Republicans that are going to act… Continue

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.
