OBAMA'S PLAN IS NOT WORKING

Yet, similar to how he won the election,

his admirers and most important, he himself, are satisfied that using

rhetoric to exaggerate the extent of his successes will be enough to

indoctrinate far too many of the voting citizenry with a belief in

successful change.

State Capitol protests

It is very difficult for the grass roots membership to get to washington DC on 4/15/10. Perhaps we should consider a march on the 50 state capitals. The relevance is that the health care bill indeeds burdens the state medcaid programs as well as local businesses. If every state capital saw the level of distain, the state politicans might get the message and attempt a pushback if not outright legal challenge to the bill

Tea Parties are about pushing the WDC 'flush' lever

The types of folks who don't care for Obama's policies is... a long list. An unsurprising outcome is Republicans jumping on the Tea Party protests in a desperate attempt to scurry to the moral high ground to garner votes.

Yo, Pubs, *you* are Part Of The Problem. *You* are part of what needs changing in DC. Don’t you *even* pose like you’re not.

It’s like we’ve had red pigs and blue pigs gorging at the trough for years - and finally we’re so disgusted with how much…

Remember to Do the reverse MATH..270 million ppl must Have Health Ins.

The Media loves to play the number games. 3 million people in prison means about 1% of the population. Only 10% of the population do not have Health Ins. Half of the 30million do not need or want, example; the healthy 20 somethings and then the people working under the table, drawn by work and employers who side step our society's laws. The other HALF are Heart braking stories of loss and stress, but still do not have the money for the mandatory monthly premium. This plan makes people decide…

Seven Lessons For The Tea Party

What went right and what didn't during the health care fight.

By Ambreen Ali



The tea partyers who waited anxiously outside the Capitol until House Democrats

passed the health care bill late Sunday night were back at work before lawmakers

woke up the next day.



Mark Meckler of Tea Party Patriots, the largest coalition in the movement,

was already in California meeting fellow activists Monday morning. In Georgia,

Rajjpuut's Folly: A Suggested Unity Platform for Statesmen Seeking TEA Party Support





Whether TEA means "Taxed Enough Already" or "Taken Enough Abuse," Old Rajjpuut, has been encouraged by the Tea Party phenomenon beyond that of any other occurrence in political-activism since at least the days of Ronald Reagan, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi. Patriotic opposition and even a bit of civil disobedience against corrupt government and corrupt politicians is…

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.
