Atrocities Abound

Atrocities Abound

We now have a government that no longer even pretends to listen to the people and everyday it gears up even more for what they know is coming, a revolt of the people.

Fema camps are springing up; the government is arming the police with military equipment and training them to fight in our own cities against the so called (Home Grown Terrorists) such as our returning veterans, gun owners, anyone who believes in freedom and anyone who clings to the Constitution or the bible.

Our manufacturing has either been shipped overseas or is being legislated out of business with high taxes, numerous, erroneous and insidious laws and yet the banks and Wall Street are making out like bandits while the dollar is crumbling by the criminal FED.

Taxes are skyrocketing; the government is spending our children and our grand children into poverty and contriving new internet taxes that will finish off commerce. The IRS is out of control and being used by political factions to annihilate the opposition. We have new government agencies that are nothing more than police state organizations to wield complete control over the people. We have agencies that are in bed with private corporations to spy on the every move and transaction of the people with no checks in place.

We have elected officials who break any law they deem necessary for their own greed and continued entrenchment in power. We have a president who broke every rule in the book to get elected and then contrived voter fraud to get reelected. We have a president who acts like a Monarch and thumbs his nose at the laws of the land and has placed America into serious jeopardy constitutionally, politically with treasonous foreign policies and by destroying our won militarily.

We have a system now where the Justice system is rife with corruption, the courts are broken, the legal system is corrupt, Congress is corrupt and inept and yet the people have to toe the line or suffer from an over zealous legal system out to coerce every dollar they can from the backs of the honest citizens.

And yet people still believe in the government to take care of them. People are telling me that Obama has had some tough breaks and is merely the brunt of racism and capitalism even though he has signed over 1,000 freedom robbing executive orders into law.

After trying for the past 5 years or longer to warn the people about what I knew would be happening today, if we didn’t stop them, I can now only think of but one thing to say to these people now;

What action or event would have to take place in order for the people to wake up, take notice and admit that something was indeed wrong in America?

I’ll bet that event has already happened and they just haven’t taken notice of it yet.

Small potatoes, huge concern

Small potatoes, huge concern

True capitalism, or rather true free marketing, normally brings better products at ever decreasing prices as manufactures get better at mass production and we have witnessed that in the cheap prices of some electronic products. The same can be said for the service industry as well. Competition keeps prices at the lowest level simply because if you don’t or can’t, someone else will or can.

It has been said that capitalism has to be regulated to ensure that greedy corporations don’t monopolize an industry and charge excessive prices because the competition has been eliminated.

There may be some truth in that assumption, however reality has shown clearly that it is the very regulations that our lawmakers generate on an annual basis that is the true culprit in driving up prices and reducing service.

It would be one thing if our lawmakers were to make laws out of concern for the citizens that elected them but these lawmakers rarely or never hear the voices of the concerned citizen. They are however hammered relentlessly by lobbyist working for various corporations that more often, than not, write their own laws that allow the corporations to deal with the public, as they see fit, without fear of competition and it is always labeled as some  form of consumer protection act.

The citizen consumer finds himself in a never ending spiral of higher and higher costs of services and goods but it's done in an incrementally small but steady process so as not to upset the consumer to the point of actual defiance. How much are you paying for cable TV?

The cost of living in America now requires all members of a household, old enough to work, to help support the family, making America’s working class more impoverished as time goes on.

We are told that we now live in a world class driven economy and that we must adjust to it. Truth is America cannot compete with the world simply because we are hamstrung by our own laws, rules and regulations and that forces us to import products from countries that do not have uncountable shackles to comply with.

The same that applies to a house hold also applies to a small business as the cost of business is driven by the same pack of rascals driving up their costs as well. Maybe you have noticed that most businesses in the US are now chain owned stores and services that have the capital and political clout to better deal with the shear bureaucracy of an overwhelming government with the myriad of regulations.

Maybe it is time for America to start thinking about Big Over Bloated Government and start doing something about it and maybe the citizens need their own lobbyists.

The Truth About the Health Care Bills

The Truth About the Health Care Bills
Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

 Well, I have done it!  I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009.  I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law.  I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional.
What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

 To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

 The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system.  All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals.  Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.

 However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface.  In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices.  Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated.  If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

 The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government.  The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

 The irony is that the Congress doesn't have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with!  I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

 This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare (a direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution) information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital.  All of this is a protection against unreasonable searches and seizures.  You can also forget about the right to privacy.  That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

 If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you.  It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment.  However, that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law.   It doesn't stop there though.

The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;

The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people.  Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

 I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea.  This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights.  Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution." If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation.  If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

 For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.
