Clinton campaign “TO PRODUCE AN UNAWARE AND COMPLIANT CITIZENRY”

“And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly.” – sent to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta by former Clinton administration official Bill Ivey on March 13, 2016.

Charles Barkley: ‘Unintelligent’ black people are ‘brainwashed’ to hold back successful black men

“For some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don’t break the law, you’re not a good black person. There are a lot of black people who are unintelligent, who don’t have success. It’s best to knock a successful black person down because they’re intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school and they’re successful … It’s just typical B.S. that goes on when you’re black, man.”

Charles Barkley said in an interview on CBS Philadelphia 94 WIP’s “Afternoons with Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis.”

Caldwell Idaho Police don’t like being videotaped harass cyclists

Caldwell Idaho Police don’t like being videotaped and then state “You don’t have any legal rights now because right now you just broke the law,” the officer replies. The department is now investigating.

This recording is a little over two minutes, the full 20 minute recording has not been released in order to prevent the police from falsifying their reports around the video.

Philadelphia PYT displays Eagles running back LeSean McCoy’s ’20cent tip’ online. Violates Visa merchant terms?

A copy of a receipt signed by Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy with only a 20 cent tip went up on eBay Saturday morning. The bidding started at, you guessed it, 20 cents.

The real question here is, what kind of establishment decides they don’t like you, your attitude or your tip, they’ll out you online? Why would anyone patronize an establishment that does not respect the privacy and rights of their customers? Displaying your customers bill and credit card receipt online is despicable.

The real question here is an issue of the contracts between Visa/Mastercard/American Express and the establishment that is requiring you to hand over your credit card information?

Visa’s contract with the merchant seems to requiree that the receipt be deposited [1, page 12]

For example the Visa guidelines state:

Create two transaction receipts, one for the deposit and one for the balance . Write, print out, or stamp “Deposit” or “Balance,” as appropriate, on the receipt .

 

  • Keep all material containing account numbers—whether on paper or electronically—in a secure area accessible to only selected personnel . Merchants with paper receipts should be extremely careful during the storage or transfer of this sensitive information . Merchants should at all times:
    • –  Promptly provide the drafts to their acquirer .
    • –  Destroy all copies of the drafts that are not delivered to the acquirer .  [p 14]

 

It would appear that YPT Philadelphia is violating the terms of the Visa agreement.  Mastercard and American Express have similar terms.

 

Divorce is expensive. I used to joke they were going to call it ‘all the money’, but they changed it to ‘alimony’. It’s ripping your heart out through your wallet. – Robin Williams

“Divorce is expensive,” Robin Williams recently said. “I used to joke they were going to call it ‘all the money’, but they changed it to ‘alimony’. It’s ripping your heart out through your wallet.”

In the end the Obama administration is not afraid of whistle blowers like me… Snowden

“In the end the Obama administration is not afraid of whistle blowers like me…We are stateless, imprisoned, and powerless…No, the Obama administration is afraid of you…an informed, angry public demanding the constitutional government it was promised – and it should be.”  ~ Edward Snowden

In order for collectivists (socialists, progressives, fascists, communists, etc.) to check their morality, they need only remove government as the intermediary of their programs.

“In order for collectivists (socialists, progressives, fascists,
communists, etc.) to check their morality, they need only remove
government as the intermediary of their programs. When they are
exposed as clubbing other people for “charity,” housing rights,
medical rights, job rights and all the other rights inimical to
the right to self-ownership, property, and the liberty to use it,
their brute force will lay naked for all to see. That they rely
on government agents to do their mugging for them is an indication
of their bravery. At least union members do not hesitate to
threaten or use force, but they too often rely on paid goons.”
~ Bill Holmes, libertarian activist (1948-2011)

Kobe Bryant: Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right?

According to Colorlines.com Kobe stated:

“I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American,” he said. “That argument doesn’t make any sense to me. So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.

They continue:

The profile goes on to quote former NFL running back Jim Brown, who at one point said, “[Kobe] is somewhat confused about culture, because he was brought up in another country.” Bryant then defended himself on Twitter, writing, “A ‘Global’ African American is an inferior shade to ‘American’ African American?? #hmmm. that doesn’t sound very #Mandela or #DrKing sir.”
