An Innocent Idea Turned Into a Global Business

I have lived in the borough of South Williamsport for my entire life. There isn't necessarily anything special about South Williamsport except for one thing. The eyes of the world turn upon South Williamsport to watch the Little League World Series every year and I despise it. Just a couple miles from where I live, tens of thousands of people are flocking to watch the championship game today. A lot of people consider it a privilege to live in a place that attracts this many people each year, but I am not one of them.

Feds Shut Down Seed Library (Prison Planet)

In yet another example of the federal government’s war on self-sufficiency, the U.S. Department of Agriculture shut down a seed library in Pennsylvania, claiming that a system whereby residents could borrow heirloom seeds and then replace them at harvest time was a violation of the 2004 Seed Act, while a commissioner warned that such behavior could lead to “agri-terrorism.”

Lou’s back from Montana where he had traveled with Independent Gazette IT/contributor John Manko and tells a little about sleeping under the stars out in Big Sky Country. He’s also back from a trip late in the week to New York City to hear Wayne Allen Root speak about his new book The Murder of the Middle Class. Can the US learn from Canada and reverse the trend? Perhaps the immigrant highway extending from Central America should be extended further right through the US and into Canada.

What I'd Like To Say

Don't matter if ya born at the top or bottom. That's just a place in time. Don't let anyone convince you, that what comes next, is out of your control. If ya ain't dead, than life's in motion. The trajectory is all you. Ya gotta do the heavy liftin if ya wanna maximize where you life ends up. I'm tired of the guys up top sayin we can't make it on our own. Like we all need help. To me, it seems like they're in the way more times than helpin. I wanna hear words from men who expect a little more from us. The dude's we got now, only know how to depress me.

Judicial Watch

Since Congress doesn't seem to have the tenacity to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch, perhaps our efforts would better spent by supporting Judicial Watch, rather than trying to influence Congress to do the right thing, which they never seem to do.

Judicial Watch has a far better track record, recently, at getting information than Congress.

--article refers to "residents", if I were a renter, I'd take the money and run--

EQT Corporation, which operates a fracking well near Finleyville in Washington County, has offered $50,000 to those willing to sign a comprehensive no-liability waiver that prevents them from ever suing the company for any problem stemming from the drilling.

The agreement, which at least four residents have signed in exchange for the money, covers “current operations as well as those to be carried out in the future,” ProPublica says.

Police Confiscate Healthy Baby Because it Was Born at Home

Fatima Doumbouya had no idea of the horrors that would ensue for simply choosing to have her baby in her own home.

Earlier this month Doumbouya, with her husband at her side, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in the comfort of their own home.

For six days they enjoyed being new parents before deciding that it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to get their newborn baby screened for any health issues.

Little did they know that she would be kidnapped and they would be treated like incompetent criminals.

Unattended children appearing at the US’ southern border? Mike weighs in on this latest immigration development. Lou recounts Monday’s tossing from court of Independent Gazette correspondent Tara Koval. It seems that Lackawanna County CYS solicitor Janine Pavalone had resorted to making unsubstantiated allegations of illegal recording activities on the part of the paper . . . and Judge Margie Moyle proceeded to remove Koval from her courtroom solely on Pavalone’s word.
