amica jeffersoni's Letter to the Missouri MIAC Committee

Yes, it's long. Yes, it's detailed. Will this have any impact whatsoever on Missouri's attempt to establish oversight for Missouri's fusion center, the Missouri Information and Analysis Center? I am still waiting on a response. If I get one, I will post it here.

Dear Representative Dixon:

I am writing your Committee from Maryland, not only out of concern that I may have been profiled as a person who voted for Ron Paul as President, but as one who believes that fusion centers like the Missouri Information and Analysis Center are a danger to the Constitutional rights that Americans hold most dear. Maryland is one of at least three other states that has considered legislation concerning fusion centers in the past two years. I would like to discuss legislation in Maryland, Virginia, and New Mexico--both as a way of cautioning you about the shortcomings and pitfalls of the legislation-- but also to point out the efforts of legislators in other states who have bravely worked to place limits on the workings of the fusion centers, using the Constitution as their guide.

I'm not below bumping my own

I'm not below bumping my own post one more time. But be sure and read the juicy tidbits I just posted on Lawson's thread. No beers but I am in fine sarcastic form tonight...

BTW no response from Rep. Dixon's office. How disappointing. I would be happy even to get a form letter.

Liberty Belle, it was great meeting you today! Thanks again for the Ron Paul bumper sticker and the Jones Ron Paul Revolution Soda! You are the best, hon!

Excellent letter, Amica!

I know you put alot of time and research into this ! You are a very talented writer dear friend! Sorry I was away when this was posted but here is a bump in hopes for more to read!

*Great meeting you and your family today...the time flew by! You are a wonderful lady and have a lovely family! Talk to you soon!

*You* folks are the inspiration...

Actually, I'm out of town and haven't long to write...in Williamsburg, of all places, feeling a bit out of place with all these tourists...is there a modern-day patriot anywhere in all this rabble? Still, a wonderful experience to see the Wythe house, where Wythe tutored Jefferson in law. HIs spirit inhabits the place...

Looks like you fine people have been busy in my absence. When I originally posted this, I hadn't gotten much of a response, which greatly depressed me. The fact that some of you *have* borne with my too long and too detailed writing is my inspiration. Yes, there is a vain side to this, but a more practical side as well...if something written to an audience gets no audience at all, what is the point?

Hope it proves to be as persuasive to Rep. Dixon. But, again, thank you, everyone...

Wow,wow,wow

What a great letter. I think this could be an article for a magazine or digg or something. Thanks, your a great role model. I wish I could write like that.
I wish more people here would read this and stop fussing about Alex Jones.

Very Good!

Lot's of important info. :o)

Be careful....

You mess with the Fusion Centers, you mess with Czar Chertoff and his friends and boy do they get nasty.

I think the DHS should be abolished. That's how bad it is. We already have police and fire department, there is no need for a department of homeland security which was created under false pretexts.

Well. I cannot say I

Well. I cannot say I disagree with you even a little. If you read about the fate of the three pieces of legislation, it's quite clear that there is a great deal of resistance among federal government and law enforcement against *any* oversight of the fusion centers.

BTW you will not find the ACLU publicly admitting the weaknesses of the Maryland bill. That is something I had to discover and verify for myself. I doubt that further pushing will accomplish much more with this legislation, but I continue to hope.

Ultimately, you are right. The DHS needs to be abolished. The Patriot Act should be trashed. And it disgusts me that so many who voted for Obama actually believed he was against it. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Ron Paul...

is not Franklin, Jefferson, nor Paine, but he has a beautiful statement; his or borrowed, I do not know, that says you cannot trade Liberty for safety, for the former protects the latter.
That's a ballsy letter if I might say. But it's content well fills it comport. We will find no greater safety tomorrow, if we do not exercise our Liberty today. That is what this letter does for ALL of us. See, a single person CAN protect the people of a nation, a patriot's belief in sovereignty, of all scales, can defend Liberty on it's own. Thought carries power and if we all performed in such a way every day, who would rule this nation? Not a power desired, but indeed the result of leadership, knowledge and will. Not something those in control lack. I'm really shocked by this letter; it is well crafted, clean, lean and mean - in a "Don't Tread on Me" kind of way. But, it never loses control of its message, crowd, or compassion. That is indeed a delicate balance. More could be said but, your work speaks better than I about itself.

Really....

Well when they said they were going to have large fires I was severely tested. I've been tested in huge ways.

I can say I will give my all....all 120% in fact.

All we can give...

is what we have. If we give it every day, what else can be asked. Many days I'm about 10%. But, the best thing about life is learning.

What fires are you talking about? And what tests?

Never mind...

No need to scare anyone with comments about neighborhood arson fires which almost destroyed everything..

Crazy...

I forgot it was the 4th weekend...well it only really represents the first public reading of the newdy drafted Constitution. On that date, the Articles of Confederation were still in authority...the good old days...they were in some serious money problems too...

Get out your garden hose...good luck.
