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--

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.

In Philadelphia, police can now search your car without a warrant

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A recent ruling from Pennsylvania’s highest court could have a big impact on your privacy rights during a car stop.

Pennsylvania traditionally provided broader privacy protection than the US Constitution. For decades, police in the Commonwealth had to get obtain warrant from a judge before they could do a car search unless time was of the essence or the evidence could be lost or destroyed. But now, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s 4 to 2 decision in Commonwealth v. Gary changes the rule.
