Bankrupt? Who’s Bankrupt?

A few years ago, with tongue securely in cheek, I wrote about the Fed buying Treasury Bonds. I tried using the absurd to make a point. I explained this would be like issuing your own credit card, buying everything you want, paying for the credit card with your checking account, and filling the checking account with cash advances from the credit card. I was just kidding. I never thought this would actually happen. It has. Similarly, years ago when I wrote about the nationalization of GM and the financial system I was again trying to use absurdity to make a point. My problem is that it’s getting hard to be absurd in America today.

When I read the headlines all I do is mutter to myself, “You just can’t make this stuff up” because when I did no one took me seriously.

Today with the Fed buying treasury bonds America has in effect declared bankruptcy. We might not think so because the mainstream media hasn’t mentioned it but our creditors have noticed. China wants higher interest rates and collateral. Dancing down the yellow-brick road to Insolvency City our leaders announce a new trillion dollar something or other every day. A trillion here, a trillion there and eventually trillion doesn’t sound so shockingly big any more.

Why You Must Not Sign A “Refusal To Vaccinate” Form – At least, if you want to keep your kids that is

The “Refusal to Vaccinate” form was created by the American Academy of Pediatric’s ‘legal department’ as a response to the growing number of toxic vaccines recommended by them and the growing number of parents who are becoming educated on this issue. According to the CDC our children should now receive 37 doses of vaccine between 0-16 years. [See Vaccine Schedule]

Is Liberty popular these days?

Just riff off the top of your head for me.

I'd like to hear the first thing that comes to mind. That is usually the truest thing. Don't bother censoring - we're going to be out of here soon enough anyway. The Daily Paul's landing gear is down, we're on our final descent. The seat belt light is on. It is safe to talk to your fellow passenger.

And so, friend who I've never met, I turn to you and I ask, "Hey, fellow passenger, do you think Liberty is popular these days? (And I make to your spirit a silent prayer: "I acknowledge you as a fellow traveler, and a fellow American.")

What does our fellow traveler have to say? This is what I see:

Liberty used to be popular. We once loved her so much that we put her on a coin.

Firearms enthusiasts crash gun buyback to hunt bargains

A recent gun buyback event in Oregon, aimed at curbing the number of weapons on the street, turned into a planned profit making opportunity for a group of firearms enthusiasts.

The Jan. 17 event was co-sponsored by Central Coast Ceasefire Oregon and the Newport Police Department, who offered gift cards to superstore Fred Meyer in return for guns, no questions asked. A sliding scale meant assault rifles fetched $175 gift cards each, and high capacity magazines were worth $25 credits at the store, which ironically sells firearms.

Sotomayor: 'We Can't Keep Bending the Fourth Amendment to the Resources of Law Enforcement'

Sonia Sotomayor stands up for the Fourth Amendment in drug-sniffing dog case.

Damon Root | January 22, 2015
Reason.com

The Supreme Court heard oral argument yesterday in the Fourth Amendment case Rodriguez v. United States. At issue is whether an officer "unnecessarily prolonged" an otherwise legal traffic stop when he called for backup in order to safely walk a drug-sniffing dog around the stopped vehicle. According to a previous Supreme Court ruling, the use of drug dogs during routine traffic stops poses no constitutional problems so long as the traffic stop is not "prolonged beyond the time reasonably required to complete that mission."

According to Justice Department lawyer Ginger Anders, who argued yesterday in defense of the police, law enforcement is entitled to wide leeway when it comes to determining the amount of time that's "reasonably required" to conduct traffic stops.

400 TSA agents have been arrested for theft of passenger items while not one terrorist has been caught.

A TSA agent convicted of stealing more than $800,000 worth of goods from travelers said this type of theft is “commonplace” among airport security. Almost 400 TSA officers have been fired for stealing from passengers since 2003.

Pythias Brown, a former Transportation Security Administration officer at Newark Liberty International Airport, spent four years stealing everything he could from luggage and security checkpoints, including clothing, laptops, cameras, Nintendo Wiis, video games and cash.

Speaking publicly for the first time after being released after three years in prison, Brown told ABC News that he used the X-ray scanners to locate the most valuable items to snatch.

“I could tell whether it was cameras or laptops or portable cameras or whatever kind of electronic was in the bag,” he said.

This is what happens when a civilian kills a cop during a no-knock drug raid

by Alex Henderson

The careless use of SWAT teams in no-knock drug raids — when heavily armed police burst into a home without warning — has resulted in a long list of innocent people being killed or seriously injured in the United States. 2014 alone found SWAT teams in Georgia senselessly killing businessman David Hooks and maiming toddler Bounkham “Baby Boo Boo” Phonesavanh. And when those raids victimize people who aren’t even selling drugs, narcotics officers seldom face criminal charges and are given every benefit of the doubt. But if, on the other hand, Americans shoot narcotics officers during militarized drug raids—perhaps believing that they are being robbed and are acting in self-defense—charges of first-degree murder are likely. The case of Marvin Louis Guy in Texas is a glaring example.

Guy, an African-American man who is now 50, was the target of a no-knock drug raid on May 9, 2014. Narcotics officers, operating on a tip from an informant who claimed that Guy was selling bags of cocaine, carried out a SWAT raid on his home in Killeen, Texas at around 5:30 AM—and Guy grabbed his gun and opened fire. Charles Dinwiddie, one of the officers, was hit and died two days later. Guy was charged with capital murder, and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty despite his assertions that he thought he was acting in self-defense. Guy’s trial is scheduled for June of this year.

DES MOINES — Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin told The Washington Post in an interview Friday that she is “seriously interested” in running for the White House in 2016.

“You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested,” Palin said, when asked to clarify her thinking about a possible presidential bid.

Palin, the GOP’s 2008 vice-presidential nominee, said she stood by comments she made Thursday in Las Vegas to ABC News, where she first expressed enthusiasm about potentially competing for the Republican presidential nomination.

What I Learned Hate Or Resentment Can Do To Your Mind

What I Learned Hate Or Resentment Can Do To Your Mind..

last week I had some food stolen from my work station. As I contemplated the event in my mind, I felt a swell of resentment come into me. The thought of having my food stolen was almost overwhelming to me.

* Many of you have experienced the same feeling..

After awhile I started to feel a little weird like I wanted to go out and steal something from someone else. I was upset or angry and wanted to go out and get back that which was stolen from me.

* Many of you have experienced the same feeling..

St. Peters drops charge against Ron Paul backer arrested at unruly 2012 GOP caucus

St. Peters drops charge against Ron Paul backer arrested at unruly 2012 GOP caucus

ST. PETERS • Nearly three years after a Republican presidential nominating caucus broke up in chaos, the city has dropped a trespassing charge against a Ron Paul supporter arrested for videotaping the event.

The charge against Kenneth Suitter, 58, of St. Charles County, was dropped last week. Matt Fairless, an attorney for the city, cited "prosecutorial discretion" but did not further explain the decision.
