TxDOT "Two Steps, One sticker" - Another government database

Texas is getting rid of the two stickers on the wind shield next year as a result of House Bill 2305 passed during the 83rd legislative session.

Beginning March 1, 2015, The Vehicle Registration sticker will now act as both stickers.

"The owner will get a printout when they submit for the inspection, then that information is relayed into the state database. The owner can go online prior to their registration expiring and renew. Officials can check the insurance and inspection databases for the information and issue the registration renewal."

The political class breathed a sigh of relief Saturday when the US Senate averted a government shutdown by passing the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill. This year’s omnibus resembles omnibuses of Christmas past in that it was drafted in secret, was full of special interest deals and disguised spending increases, and was voted on before most members could read it.

The debate over the omnibus may have made for entertaining political theater, but the outcome was never in doubt. Most House and Senate members are so terrified of another government shutdown that they would rather vote for a 1,774-page bill they have not read than risk even a one or two-day government shutdown.

Those who voted for the omnibus to avoid a shutdown fail to grasp that the consequences of blindly expanding government are far worse than the consequences of a temporary government shutdown. A short or even long-term government shutdown is a small price to pay to avoid an economic calamity caused by Congress’ failure to reduce spending and debt.

The title is self-explanatory.

Bugliosi has also written a book under the same title. I ordered my copy from Amazon

Architects Of CIA Torture Program Raked In $81 Million, Report Reveals

Two psychologists were paid $81 million by the CIA to advise on and help implement its brutal interrogation program targeting detainees in the war on terror, according to the Senate torture report summary released Tuesday.

The contract psychologists are identified with pseudonyms -- Grayson Swigert and Hammond Dunbar -- like most of the individuals named in the Senate Intelligence Committee's report on the CIA program. Published reports dating back to 2007, however, identify the two men as James Elmer Mitchell and Bruce Jessen, both former members of the military.

Last week the US House voted overwhelmingly in favor of an anti-Russia resolution so full of war propaganda that it rivals the rhetoric from the chilliest era of the Cold War. Ironically, much of the bill condemns Russia for doing exactly what the US government has been doing for years in Syria and Ukraine!

For example, one of the reasons to condemn Russia in the resolution is the claim that Russia is imposing economic sanctions on Ukraine. But how many rounds of sanctions has the US government imposed on Russia for much of the past year? I guess sanctions are only bad when used by countries Washington doesn’t like.

The resolution condemns Russia for selling weapons to the Assad government in Syria. But the US has been providing weapons to the rebels in Syria for several years, with many going to terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS that the US is currently bombing!

It seems nobody wants to be Secretary of Defense in the Obama administration. The president’s first two Defense Secretaries, Robert Gates and Leon Panetta, both complained bitterly this month about their time in the administration. The president’s National Security Council staff micro-managed the Pentagon, they said at a forum last week.

Former Secretary Gates revealed that while he was running the Defense Department, the White House established a line of communication to the Joint Special Operations Command to discuss matters of strategy and tactics, cutting the Defense Secretary out of the loop. His successor at the Pentagon, Leon Panetta, made similar complaints.

Last week President Obama’s third Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, was forced out of office after complaining in October that the administration had no coherent policy toward Syria. He did have a point: while claiming recent US bombing in Syria is designed to degrade and destroy ISIS, many in the administration continue pushing for “regime change” against Syrian president Assad – who is also fighting ISIS. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, has spoken out in favor of further US escalation in Syria and Iraq despite President Obama’s promise of “no combat troops” back to the region.

By Martin Hill | Liberty Fight
November 29, 2014

A giant billboard which states "Spend our tax money in the U.S.: STOP $30 BILLION TO ISRAEL!" has been erected at a busy Houston, TX intersection. The group which sponsored the billboard sent out photos and announced "We are pretty excited to secure this prime location at Richmond and Fountain View for our billboard for 8 weeks. We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our donors. It was installed Monday 10-27-14 and will remain for 8 weeks ending Dec. 21.

There is the possibility that we may extend for another 4 weeks which would take us through the peak travel time during Christmas. Do you have any other ideas and are you willing to participate for a painless operation? StopBillionsToIsrael.com." Activists also stood in front of the sign with messages of their own, such as 'Israel kills Palestinian children,' 'Your taxes support the killing,' 'Pray for Gaza,' 'Yes to BDS,' & 'Free Occupied Palestine.'

Has this happened to anyone yet?

I frequently purchase prepaid gift cards. Anything from local grocery to the Visa or Mastercard. I stopped using banks and I like to use them when going out or traveling.

I purchased several in September for a trip I went on. Tonight I went to Walgreens to get a friend a birthday card, a store gift card and a prepaid Visa card.

On the card rack there was a sign saying 'cash only'. I thought that was different. I had never seen that before. No problem, I brought plenty of cash. That was how I planned on paying.
