The unintended consequences of a SOTU speech.

After this number of years Obama has finally come out with alittle truth and his intensions. He plans on becoming a Dictator and bypassing Congress. Which he has already to some extent been doing. But now its right in everyones face. This man has so continually Lied about so many things that it really is utterly amazing. He has done such a sneak attack on America, Americans, Christians, Conservatives, Gun owners, and middle class America. That alot of his end game was questionable. But now…

Turbins and beards for military ?

This will be the final straw in the efforts to separate our military from our civilian population. The military has (for very good reasons) a set of standards that every recrute must meet. Not everyone can meet these requirements. Yet the "feedom of religon" card gets played. But I dare ye to even utter a "MerryChristmas".      God Bless America         Former  2/75th

Soros, Podesta & Obama Plan a Do-over or is it a Takeover of our Nation?

First you control the healthcare, then increase poverty & debt via climate and energy change and Obamacare.  Sounds like a bad fictional movie doesn’t it? 

Podesta had Barack Obama pave the way for his “climate change” initiative internationally.  In June of 2013 Obama and Chinese President…

Choice/Disagreement is not Judgement

Christians are blessed to be able to view/measure their life against God's standards.  This does not mean they are judging others who live by different standards.  This just means that if an  example of something that goes against these standards is given, the observer has the knowledge to separate it out from these standards with a red flag in order to choose avoidance of the example given.  Thus, this example is unsuitable for their own life as an authentic disciple.  To disagree with…

Women's rights

When my daughter first married  remember her complaining and saying, I can't do this. She was referring to working a full time job, cleaning house, preparing meals when she got off work and so on.

As I listened to her I chuckled and she ask me why. I told her about my mom that is now in the nursing home with Alzheimer's. I'm 62 now and therefore you can guess how old my mom is.

She use to get up before anyone else in the house to prepare our breakfast. Once the dishes were…

CENSORSHIP BY ANY NAME IS STILL CENSORSHIP

I have a buggy blog called “Things That Bug Me” (http://www.insectman.us/articles/karls/what-bugs-me.htm) where I use street smarts, country common sense, and a biblical basis to say what Hannity, Limbaugh et al. won’t say.  For example:



We can win everything and lose it all! If we do not win the hearts and minds of the next generation—it is all a waste!! We must rescue our…

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.
