Opposition to unions in general.

                        Let me start off by saying I'm a union member as well as a tea party member.I believe some would say I can't effectively be both.I beg to differ.Contrary to popular belief,being a union member does not automatically mean fiscally irresponsible.I am one union member who is sick and tired of being put under the same umbrella as the teachers and state workers.My union dosn't have that kind of power,and other than the two mentioned,and possibly construction unions in NY,I… Continue

Today's Big News

“US labor groups hoped to turnout the largest crowds yet in demonstrations planned in every state capitol in the nation to show solidarity with Wisconsin in fighting the proposal they see as trying to break the labor movement.” 

 

One can assume millions of people all over the world are out on the street today protesting, because they don’t have it as good as they want it.  Every single one of those protesters have some authority they look to.  Not one of them knows he has the…

The Truth is Incredibly Simple

While I write my answer, you have time to think and write your answer.

 

My Answer:

 

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know where we are going, but, obviously, the American people don’t know how to stop an impending catastrophe.

 

I listen to Glenn Beck every day. He has been accurately predicting what is taking place in America, but like the rest of the people, doesn’t have the answer. Beck reveals that he has thought a great amount of time…

Get A Little Bloody

Do politicans have any conception of rights? To acquaint you with what has gone before, Warren Harding, a Repubican, President from 1921 to 1923, a self-made newspaper publisher, promised to undo Woodrow Wilson’s progressive government escapade, which ended in depression.  Calvin Coolidge, Harding’s Vice President, after his death, continued to reinvigorate the hopes of the middleclass. I call myself Joe Smith, the Original.  I was born in 1925, in the “Roaring Twenties,” in the year…

This is a perfect example why many refrain from watching news on ABC, NBC, CBS, or MSNBC.  Last week on a segment of the "Glenn Beck Show" on FOX (Fox Cable News) was the following:

Even though President Obama is against offshore drilling for our country, he signed an executive order to loan $2 Billion of our taxpayer dollars (which we can't afford to loan since we're broke) to a Brazilian Oil Exploration Company (the 8th largest company in the entire world) to drill for oil off the…

Who’s Law Prevails?

Numerous states have passed or are passing laws to prevent judges from considering Sharia in cases before them. This is as it should be. But now the Executive Council of the American Bar Association and a do good federal judge have decided to block such legislation. It seems we are to allow Sharia to be considered in cases at law.…

The Whole Nine Yards

The ancient sages of India said, so is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm. The cutting edge of science says that beyond the local forces of gravity and electromagnetism, there exists a supreme consciousness, without limit; that the observer emerges as the co-equal in the foundry of creation.  That’s the diametric opposite of what is being taught.

 

The old guard is desperately clinging to a past that is slipping away.  A look at the past and present tells me the story that on…

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.
