"The Department Of Homeland Security Stole My Boat Today"

This is a story from TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington, it is about how the Department of Homeland Security stole his boat. Good thing is, he publicly told how he was treated badly by a government agency. If enough people do that maybe people will wake up and see the erosion of personal freedoms sooner.

i'm going to have to have a

i'm going to have to have a twinge of Schadefreude on this one. he wanted to be legal and remain within the law. he was even willing to contradict a Government Overlord for the sake of legalism.

they would have taken his boat anyways, i get that, but when i was in civics class in north carolina, having just came from texas, i was astounded to see all the lemmings in the classroom discussing what was the letter of the law. i think the "big picture" of the bill of rights flew right over their heads in north carolina. that place was worse than texas as far as "legalism" went.

This guy is reaping those rewards of legalism.



such idiocy--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Not idiocy, mendacity.

Not idiocy, mendacity. People who work for the Department of Homeland Security get a thrill out of lording over other people with the full backing of the federal government.

If the government wanted to deliberately create employment for low functioning sociopaths it would have created a department essentially identical to the Department of Homeland Security. (We already have congress for the high functioning sociopaths.)

well, you're probably right . . .

that is probably a better word, but you did say 'low-functioning'--

The top 4 banks have assets of nearly 15 trillion according to Bloomberg.


But how many real assets do they have, not paper promises.

How much silver and gold, land and real estate?

How much was stolen using the fraud of paper currencies?

Free includes debt-free!

Obviously we do not know

Yet with consolidation by various means that equals almost the total GDP for one year. This week was the first time I ever picked up a Bloomberg Report, for curiousity sake. To contrast it with the Economist for example. I was very surprised how much good informatioin was in there. The Economist obviously focuses on the entire planet more but the info on US companies and doings was better than I have seen in others. Not they I would tend to agree with some of their key editorials.

Bottom line I learned more than I thought I would.

As for the Big 4 - with continual easy credit for them. The sky is the limit as it would be for anyone in their position. Not saying it is all right but it seems people really do not notice or care or they have been given a carte blanche. More or less like owners of professional sports teams that have a taxpayer supported stadium built for their personal use. Heck I cannot even bring a sandwich into one lol


Louis McFadden told Congress in 1932/3

The the Federal Reserve had absconded with enough to pay the National debt three times over.

Prices in gold tells the tale of how Congress has looted our productive efforts by heanding control the the Federal Reserve.

As long as people believe that democracy is about voting for the stuff/material one wants then justice will be thwarted and the rich will get richer and the poor poorer.

Government never has and never will help.

Free includes debt-free!



He should have crossed out

He should have crossed out the error, written in the correction, initialed it, and then signed. You have a right to correct any form you are signing, and its legal to do so. That's how you edit/amend any contract.
