While I rarely find myself with a shortage of words, there’s nothing more I need to say. One could always point to plenty of facts, but those are obvious to thinking people. Bring the troops home. Let freedom ring!
Over 5,000 people have been killed in the US by police than US soldiers have fallen during the Iraq war over the last 10 years. The figure seems to reflect the increased militarization of police and, shockingly, means that you are 29 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist. We discuss the figures in this Buzzsaw news clip with Tyrel Ventura and Tabetha Wallace.
Speeding equals death by the police state http://www.kansas.com/2014/01/23/3245787/family-searches-for-answers-while.html
Speaker Beth Harwell, Nashville’s biggest hypocrite, has admitted that she’s a globalist. Harwell made the following statement to the Tennessee Chamber about Common Core standards:
“There have to be standards in place, and the days of telling ourselves, ‘Our schools are doing fine by our own standards,’ that’s not good enough in this world anymore,” Harwell said. “There is a world standard now. There is a national standard now. And we want our children to be meeting it and surpassing it.”
If education is as important as politicians like to say it is, to attract good jobs and whatever they pull out of their heads, then why have any State or local standards on anything? If education standards have to be global or national, then why aren’t working standards globalized? Why do we need State run courts? It would save the legislature the hassle of having to provide us with Soviet style judicial elections where the Governor gives us one candidate to vote for.
If standards need to be national or global, then why have State and local governments? Following Harwell’s line of thinking big spending Republican run State government can be dissolved and the feds and globalist could run everything. It is a tempting thought because it would rid Tennessee of hypocrite Harwell, momentarily. The problem is she would run for federal office and then advocate that the UN should dictate national policy.

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.
