What is needed is a 21st Century version of the 1932 Bonus Marchers, to include vets returning from Iraq/Afghanistan who cannot find jobs as well as unemployed civilians. Probably 99% of Americans have never heard of this incident!

Our country, our freedoms, our future has been sold to the highest bidders on Wall Street and in China. We are no longer governed by statesmen or even politicians but elected corporate handlers.

We have run out of time as a country and a people, to reclaim our country, our freedoms and our future. Brute force seems to be the only way because elections are meaningless when both parties represent the same thing: serfdom! Letters and emails to our corporate handlers result in form letter responses. They are out of touch with working Americans but not with the perks and bribes associated with their offices.

Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent upon every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.

Paranoia Strikes Deep

Alan, over at SnarkyBytes, points out a link to a report on an internal TSA memo that paints anyone who protests the new security procedures as a domestic extremist. The label is applied to "any person, group or alternative media source that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel disruptions at U.S. airports in response to the enhanced security procedures."

The 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution recognizes my natural (or God given) right to free speech. One of the most protected areas of speech, according to numerous Supreme Court rulings, is political speech. Airing issues in the public arena is was a normal part of the public discourse in America.

In this brave new world, objecting to the loss of your rights ensures that your name will end up on a Homeland Security watch list.

Be careful what you think, be even more careful what you say.

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

--George Washington

WikiLeaks is Now A Terrorist Organization...

I've been critical of WikiLeaks in the past for several reasons, from the fact that they are pursuing a clear political agenda designed to harm the United States to the highly inflammatory language and distorted context of some of the illicitly garnered information under their control.

I've also been quite clear that I consider Bradley Manning one of worse traitor's in American history (easily the worst in terms of volume) who deserves nothing less than the death penalty for passing along classified information during wartime.

I've been a bit more forgiving of Julian Assange, the glory-hounding promoter and leader of Wikileaks, and of Americans invovled with Wikileaks, but now that I've read of their "Doomsday device" containing unredacted information that assuredly will put lives in danger, I view the group—and individuals in possession of the file who intend to release it—as nothing more or less than information terrorists, and urge that our military, intelligence, and law enforcement assets treat them as such.

At over 1.4GB of information, the NSA and other federal agencies should have no problem identifying and tracking who has downloaded the file, the release of which constitutes a clear and present danger to the United States. All overt official and covert extrajudicial remedies should be authorized by the President to reacquire control over this information.

This is classified information that enemies of our nation are threatening to use against us during wartime, risking the lives of our soldiers and operatives worldwide. They should be hunted with the same vigor as al Qaeda, and offered the same mercies if they resist.

Is This a GREAT Country, or What?

As reports, the only "proof" required was a form stating that the claimant had "attempted" to farm, perhaps planting tomatoes in the back yard, and to have a family member vouch for that assertion.

The government would then send the aggrieved "farmer" a check for $50,000.

The bill is headed to President Obama's desk for his signature Wednesday or Thursday.

It was then-Sen. Obama who introduced the original Pigford legislation in 2007.
