After the Southern Avenger's recent commentary Gunning Down the Constitution Jack Hunter argues Why the Supreme Court overturning Chicago's gun ban would damage the Constitution and increase the power of the federal government.
Smargus.com's Allison Bricker responds in her piece The Supreme Court Ought to Declare Chicago’s Hand Gun Ban UnConstitutional that "Illinois is a member of the union and as such enjoys the privileges and immunities of its membership and thus pledges its allegiance to the Organic laws of the Republic."

"After laying the groundwork for a decisive vote this week on the Senate's health-care bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Monday that she might attempt to pass the measure without having members vote on it.
Instead, Pelosi (D-Calif.) would rely on a procedural sleight of hand: The House would vote on a more popular package of fixes to the Senate bill; under the House rule for that vote, passage would signify that lawmakers 'deem' the health-care bill to be passed.
The tactic -- known as a 'self-executing rule' or a 'deem and pass' -- has been commonly used, although never to pass legislation as momentous as the $875 billion health-care bill. It is one of three options that Pelosi said she is considering for a late-week House vote, but she added that she prefers it because it would politically protect lawmakers who are reluctant to publicly support the measure.
'It's more insider and process-oriented than most people want to know,' the speaker said in a roundtable discussion with bloggers Monday. 'But I like it," she said, "because people don't have to vote on the Senate bill'..."

Facebook feds go undercover: Document shows federal agents dipping quietly into social media

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Feds are on Facebook. And MySpace, LinkedIn and Twitter, too.
U.S. law enforcement agents are following the rest of the Internet world into popular social-networking services, going undercover with false online profiles to communicate with suspects and gather private information, according to an internal Justice Department document that offers a tantalizing glimpse of issues related to privacy and crime-fighting.
Think you know who's behind that "friend" request? Think again. Your new "friend" just might be the FBI.
The document, obtained in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, makes clear that U.S. agents are already logging on surreptitiously to exchange messages with suspects, identify a target's friends or relatives and browse private information such as postings, personal photographs and video clips.
I was a teenager during the Viet Nam War. That whole era was bad news just like this era is bad news.
Have we learned nothing, are we DOOMED to repeat the same mistakes? We are facing the possibility of yet another war that will certainly lead to a possible WWIII.
It is always the same propaganda they are fighting for our freedoms but WE know better than that crap it's for PROFITS and CONTROL. Looking at all the videos of the depleted Uranium birth defects and deaths it is Viet Nam all over again. The government doesn't give a shit about the soldiers OR the civilians. WE are ALL canon fodder. A person doesn't have to be a nuclear scientist to know we are being scammed and I think it is time to EXPOSE the scammers.
Could some young person rework this video and song to UPDATE it because this is OUR song, YOUR future if WE don't get busy and start some serious ANTI-WAR EDUCATION videos. The ONLY thing that stopped Viet Nam were the people who got SICK of seeing death and destruction. We need to start FLOODING Youtube and the internet before they start pulling every thing off.
Let's PREEMPTIVELY STOP a WAR BEFORE it starts.
NO IRAN WAR, NO MORE WAR.

Bunnings's endorsement is imminent according to the local chatter.

Anyone paying attention knows that John McCain has been a Big-Government Globalist Neocon (BGGN) for virtually his entire senatorial career. As with many BGGNs hiding out in the Republican Party, McCain likes to talk about smaller government, but his track record is littered with the promotion of one big government program after another. But, what else would one expect from a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)?
While the U.S. government and federal authorities busy themselves targeting American citizens as domestic terrorists, it seems they couldn’t care less about the fact that the military of a foreign power is flying around American airspace with wanton abandon.
Residents of Falcon Heights, a south Texas border town, saw a Mexican helicopter hovering over a house shortly after 6pm on Tuesday night. The chopper conducted surveillance for about 15 minutes before flying back to Mexico.
“They had armored individuals in the chopper, open ramp, very military looking, in style and preparation,” said Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez Jr.
“It’s proof the Mexican military sees no boundaries,” reported local KRGV News’ Stephanie Stone, adding that the incident wasn’t the first of its kind and wouldn’t be the last.
“The markings I understand read ‘La Marina’ which is equivalent to the Mexican Navy,” said Gonzalez.

Exploring how Corporations came to be, what that entailed and how they affect a free marketplace.
The magazine is on newsstands now. Not exactly favorable coverage, but it is getting the message out.
THE .50 CALIBER Bushmaster bolt action rifle is a serious weapon. The model that Pvt. 1st Class Lee Pray is saving up for has a 2,500-yard range and comes with a Mark IV scope and an easy-load magazine. When the 25-year-old drove me to a mall in Watertown, New York, near the Fort Drum Army base, he brought me to see it in its glass case—he visits it periodically, like a kid coveting something at the toy store. It'll take plenty of military paychecks to cover the $5,600 price tag, but he considers the Bushmaster essential in his preparations to take on the US government when it declares martial law.
His belief that that day is imminent has led Pray to a group called Oath Keepers, one of the fastest-growing "patriot" organizations on the right. Founded last April by Yale-educated lawyer and ex-Ron Paul aide Stewart Rhodes, the group has established itself as a hub in the sprawling anti-Obama movement that includes Tea Partiers, Birthers, and 912ers. Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs, and Pat Buchanan have all sung its praises, and in December, a grassroots summit it helped organize drew such prominent guests as representatives Phil Gingrey and Paul Broun, both Georgia Republicans.
There are scores of patriot groups, but what makes Oath Keepers unique is that its core membership consists of men and women in uniform, including soldiers, police, and veterans. At regular ceremonies in every state, members reaffirm their official oaths of service, pledging to protect the Constitution—but then they go a step further, vowing to disobey "unconstitutional" orders from what they view as an increasingly tyrannical government.

"They're still negotiating," said a spokeswoman for the congressman's office. "We're very hopeful that it's going to be included, maybe ... by the end of next week."
