Another lie the government keeps spewing.
More Republican failure from neocons.
This article raises a lot of questions that need to be answered. It will be interesting to see how this all develops.
Isn’t it amazing that The Daily Times has an editorial puff piece on Senator Lamar Alexander on the day that a staffer child pornography scandal breaks? Some editing at the Times would be nice. There are duplicate paragraphs in the updated version of the pornography story.
40 years ago socialist were in charge, just as they are today. Not much has changed, except government is bigger and tyranny is more obvious to this with working brain cells. We haven’t had a decent man in the White House since Calvin Coolidge, 90 years ago. Even then, silent Cal was nothing to brag about. Probably would have to go back to James Monroe for a constitutional President.
Nixon’s crap was the catalyst for ubiquitous, lucrative speed traps.
Received this last week:
40 years ago today Nixon talked about fuel rationing, a split speed limit of 50 for cars and 55 for trucks and buses, the Alaska pipeline, lower thermostat settings, and energy independence by 1980.
“Maybe this incantation about representation is intended to keep us from an unpleasant truth: that we are ruled, not self-governed, and that self-government is a façade hiding a form of autocracy.”
Maryland: Speed Camera Cash Used To Shock, Shoot And Spy On Drivers
Tasers, Glocks and cell phone spying device bought with speed camera profit in Salisbury, Maryland.
Under Maryland law, jurisdictions that operate speed cameras face strict limits on how much revenue can be generated and what local officials can buy with the money. Last month, the city council in Salisbury voted unanimously to take the automated ticketing cash and buy Glock training handguns, Tasers and a device that police can use to crack passwords and download data off the cell phones of motorists during a traffic stop.
Maryland’s law autorizing the use of traffic cameras was highly controversial, first passing in 2006 over the veto of then-Governor Robert L. Ehrlich (R). To obtain the needed votes when expanding the speed camera program statewide in 2009, lawmakers agreed to a few compromises. Cities are not allowed to collect more than ten percent of their municipal budget from camera revenue, and profit must go “solely for public safety purposes, including pedestrian safety programs,” according to Maryland Code Section 7-302.
In August, the city put in an order for nine Tasers at a cost of $12,500. Last month it approved purchase of eight Glock simunitions handguns and the purchase of a $12,083 mobile device used to crack the passwords and grab the data from mobile phones while in the field.
“The upgrade will allow police investigators to pull data from the most technically advanced cell phones and tablets,” Salisbury Police Major David Meienschein wrote in a September 5 memo. “The Cellebrite UFED Touch is a device that is used to perform data extractions from cell phones, tablets, iPads, GPS and other electronic devices. Investigators have been able to obtain stored and deleted data files to include but not limited to: text messages, photographs, videos and contact lists.”
Ron Ely, head of the Maryland Drivers Alliance, says this is one of many examples of municipalities are making a mockery of the law.
“The so called ‘public safety restriction’ is a meaningless joke intended for public relations and has no practical effect,” Ely told TheNewspaper. “Salisbury’s interpretation of this provision is not surprising at all. Chevy Chase Village previously earmarked such funds on things like new locker rooms, office equipment, cable TV lines, and a new office for the police chief.”
It’s obvious that all across this country governments have declared war on we the people. The only way to stop this, absent divine intervention, is to stop making excuses and fight your corrupt governments.
Earlier this week we saw Sheriff Be-Wrong cross into another jurisdiction and put another County Jail in “lock down“, military style with a grenade launcher on hand, all to keep the people safe from the Grainger Co. Coffee monster. Truthfully the ones running the jail are far more dangerous than the petty thieves in the jail. The petty thieves usually just make off with a tv and copper wire. Government stills more than half of what you make if you are a working person. Worse if you don’t give them them at least half, they will take it all by putting your house for sale on the courthouse steps to pay the debts they rack up, all in our names of course. Don’t you just love freedom? It’s so darn expensive. The petty thief pales in comparison.
St. Augustine provides a good lesson in the evils of government vs. the petty thief. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdQRl17ixwg
Governments keep hostile possession of the roads, eliminating practical travel for most people except with government permission. Look at all the cops occupying the roads, as though we’re at war, needing constant surveillance and “patrol”.
It’s time to stop making excuses about how busy you are with your lives and push back evil luciferian government.
I suspect that the cost is much higher.
This coming Tuesday Nov. 5th, I will give a presentation on Fusion Centers, discussing the REAL ID Act of 2005 and biometrics to the Smoky Mt. Tea Party Patriots at the Blount County Library at 6:30 PM. Come out and learn about the surveillance police state.
The scathing U. S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations report is available here. As usual Congress did nothing with this information.
Insane country we live in. I wish the government had shutdown the TSA.
This is not a good sign for the US economy. Standards for business growth must be really low, considering how little Daniels and his corporate cronies and pals have done for the people of Blount County. Heaven help us if this is the direction the economy and businesses are going in this country.
Let’s see if he uses his position to do something productive for Blount County. I am not holding my breath.
