“acceleration of the agrarian revolution.” – Hugo Chavez. (see this)
When the socialist dictator Hugo Chavez is finished, “agrarian” peasants will be all that is left. His revolution is an anti-industrial revolution.
And continuing the police-state theme for random pat-downs in Philadelphia and warrantless GPS tracking, North Carolina Sheriffs want access to the States Prescription Database. “We can better go after those who are abusing the system,” said Lee County Sheriff Tracy Carter.
Of course, if Lee County installs video cameras in everyone’s home, they could “better go after those who are abusing” their spouses. If Sheriffs could review all your financial records they could “better go after those who are” dealing in cash. Oh wait, the Federal Government wants to do that already with 1099s.
The standard for a free country is not to make it easier to monitor the citizens in order to “better go after” someone. The standard is freedom.
It would me much easier to “better go after” people in a police state where everything is monitored, but no one who values freedom over convenience would care to live in such a place.
Mexican President Felipe Calderon warned Mexico would reject any effort to “criminalize migration.” May 19, 2010
The hypocrisy of the Mexican President is evident if you consider the facts. It is terrible that the President of a country like Mexico would be so dishonest as to play politics with the lives of Mexican citizens.
Mexico, annually deports more illegal aliens than the United States does. In 2005 ALONE, Mexico deported approximately 250,000 “migrationists” from Central America. Mexico has criminalized migration.
Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are in the country legally, have the means to sustain themselves economically, not destined to be burdens on society, of economic and social benefit to society, of good character and have no criminal records, and will contribute to the general well-being of the nation.
Mexico has a record for each foreign visitor, ensuring that visa status are not violated. Visitors can not interfere with internal politics, visitors who come to Mexico under ‘false pretenses’ are deported or imprisoned and those who aid illegal immigrants are imprisoned.
President Calderon, please be honest.
Big Brother gets bigger in the new banking bill. In particular:
The bill sets up two new supersnooping federal agencies to collect data on ordinary Americans:
•The Office of Financial Research. This supposedly would predict risk in the system by collecting massive amounts of new financial data, such as patterns of credit card use.
•The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It would collect data, especially on consumer transactions.
“With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, — none of which I know how to work — information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation,” Barack Obama, May 9, 2010.
“Things have changed in the last 26 years, but McCain hasn’t. He admits he still doesn’t know how to use a computer, can’t send an e-mail.” – Barack Obama, September 12, 2008 on John McCain suggesting he is out of touch.
You have to wonder about the level of education of people like this lady. No wonder Illinois is in trouble. The parasites are out in full force:
Will the oppressor let go the oppressed? Was there ever an instance? Can the annals of mankind exhibit one single example where rulers overcharged with power willingly let go the oppressed, though solicited and requested most earnestly? … Sometimes, the oppressed have got loose by one of those bloody struggles that desolate a country but a willing relinquishment of power is one of those things which human nature never was, nor ever will be, capable of.
in Jonathan Elliot, ed., ‘The Debates of the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution’, (New York, Burt Franklin: 1888 ), 3:51-52.
