This privilege is mine at the home of the PN Executive director and her husband. She literally doesn't have time to read news periodicals, even great ones, but subscribes to support the cause. That is a form of real dedication and I get to enjoy wolfing the stuff while trying hard not to end up reading every issue cover to cover.
I've got a whole discussion thread elsewhere (the link on request) on how unreliably conservative Pat Buchanan can be, but when he's good, there's truly none finer. He brings out facts and perspective of a type that could close a sale of ice to Eskimoes. When the truth revolution began some 20+ years ago, PJB was THE mass-media figure in the lead, daring to call for justice for poor friendless John Demjanjuk when nobody else would have. (Saving Demjanjuk from the Israeli gulag is what landed former US Rep James Traficant in the ameriKan one.)
Buchanan's moral courage on that subject brought indescribable hope and excitement to all who were discovering the most politically incorrect truths of all and beginning to do something about them. It was literally like nothing seen in the "mainstream" media since the age of TV brainwashing had begun.
in the March 30 issue of TimEx as I call it, Mr. Buchanan again took on the big, touchy topics with tremendous aplomb. I beg you to read the whole short thing.... and don't do anything else until you've shared it with three other people, especially those still mired in the fantasy world of war jingoism, Republican cultism et al, or even Dummacrat socialism:
Antiwar.com is, needless to say, an outstanding outlet for news and comment in its own right. Do check it out!
Next in my haul is the March 9 issue, with a PJB column entitled Robert Gates, Neo-Isolationist? Where the Killing Libyans piece was an inspiration and liberation, this is a small revolution. Well, if that word can be applied to simply stating the moronically simple facts in opposition to grossly swollen lies and hoopla!
Dive into the above column with both feet and behold the "defense secretary who presided over the surge in Iraq and the surge in Afghanistan" admitting that we supposed "right-wing nuts", "isolationists" et al were right the whole time. Can it possibly augur the beginning of the end for the warfare state? PLEASE read it and pass it on to your favorite Israel-worshiping Baptist preacher. Please....
General Douglas MacArthur agrees with our position, says Pat. Don't forget, Gen. George S. Patton said after WW2 that we'd fought "the wrong war against the wrong enemy." They killed Patton lest he spill the beans any further! And Major General Smedley Butler, once America's most-decorated Marine, penned a myth-shattering booklet called War Is A Racket. Can it be the "experts" are wrong about everything, and peace is patriotic like a great bumper sticker says?
Find this column here, and if it's your intro to yet another fine, fearless website, all the better:
Elsewhere on the TimEx page:
"Public employee unions" -- Walter Williams
"Is democracy viable?" -- Thomas Sowell
"Teachers Unions 101: 'A' is for 'agitation'" -- Michelle Malkin
Not the lineup in Joe Sobran's heyday, but it will tide us over.
The thrill of seeing all this stark honesty in one place comes with a price: if the issues are that all-fired simple, why are the "best-educated" and most illustrious people in history -- ameriKan politicians, medianites et al -- constantly running around destroying this country and any others they can get their hands on (generally no more than 1/10 our own size) while the ameriKan proles go about their business every day as if it were the most natural thing in the world? This country is nothing less than the new Roman empire, and is suffering the same fate all empires ever have as we speak.
Work a job all day, watch TV all evening, curse the politicians but vote them back in every time -- is this as good as it gets?
Let's not look up the actual war footage or birth defects just now -- it's so tragic and so avoidable, you could go mad from it.

I don't know what the real buzzterm for them is, but I call them de-facto e-groups: groups of friends of friends or others with common interests taking topics up conversationally via email.
One such group involves the sector of my patriot friends who are also "expats" -- people interested in escaping the ameriKan madhouse or already happily ensconced in some other country. Many or all are folks you've heard speak at PN meetings in past years.
An exchange will typically begin when our former upcountry SC associate Dr. John Cobin, now an expat guru and college professor in Chile, will sound out an email highlighting some great aspect of life in Chile -- its free economics, nice people, heavenly scenery et al -- and others will respond. Some affirm, some challenge, but iron always sharpeneth iron somewhere.
John's latest blog post the other day.....
.....led to a thought-provoking exchange. This entry from Ken Shields (now living in Chile too) seems especially rich. Hopefully he's right and the "green magicians" will finagle another year or three of relative stability for ameriKa, but there truly appears no hope for it beyond that.
Take it to the bank!
Actually, there is something that can save the dollar, at least in the short run.
There is a war in the financial stratosphere for dominance as the world's reserve currency.
The Euro and its corresponding central bank have been trying to kill off the dollar so they can steal wealth ad nauseum. After all, why should the Fed have all the fun?
China can't stand it either and is trying to convince the world of their enormously strong economy (a joke) by blue smoke and mirrors. Hence the building of, "ghost cities"
where no one lives among other things.
If the dollar wins the battle, we will see a scramble to acquire dollars for reserves that will suck up the excess pretty fast and cause prices of gold and silver to drop. People who bought gold and silver without understanding the dynamics of the free market will give up in disgust and sell off their holdings (at a loss) and the banksters will win again.
No so our group. A drop in gold and silver will just be a better buying opportunity.
The Fed will not be able to resist more dollar creation and in a few years, we'll be back where we are now but worse. Those who are watching carefully will be okay IF they act on the knowledge.
What happens if the dollar loses the war? You know the answer. Hyperinflation and pretty fast, too. Maybe by the end of 2012.
As to the exact numbers concerning the gold available in the earth. It's not infinite but it's much more than we can economically extract, at least for now so it might as well be.

Let's see..... an acre is 43,560 square feet, so that would be just shy of twenty-three acres! Yes, I suppose I can imagine the fedgov putting up another colossal building.
But what I can't imagine is them producing any justification for it. Things they don't have the money, space or personnel for: serious borders, "bailing out" the working man, badly needed "regime change" for Anderson County, SC (I surmise the perps here are guilty of federal crimes), rebuilding Detroit and filling it with wonderful people, deporting all illegals and undesirables, stopping crime, restoring the Constitution, and doing everything for America they're so cheerily doing for 100 other countries on the dime of the ameriKan taxpayer.
They not only have no intention of doing these things, they're trying to criminalize the very act of listing them in public. And they'll build as many 22.9568411-acre buildinsg as they think they have to to git 'er done.

The latest News Of The Weird items on our kinds of subjects.
Equal justice under the law might just depend simply on whether a judge's stomach is growling when he pronounces sentence, according to a study of 1,000 parole decisions during 50 courtroom days observed by students from Columbia University and Israel's Ben Gurion University for an April journal article. The students found that, day after day, judges were increasingly stingy with parole as a morning or afternoon session wore on, but that dramatic spikes in generosity took effect immediately following lunch or a snack break. The lead researcher, Columbia professor Jonathan Levav, expressed satisfaction with the scholarship but disappointment "as a citizen" with the findings. [ABC News, 4-11-2011]
In April, Texas state Rep. John Davis of Houston proposed a tax break -- aimed at buyers of yachts valued at more than a quarter-million dollars. Davis promised more yacht sales and, through a ripple effect, more jobs if Texas capped the sales tax on yachts at the amount due on a $250,000 vessel -- a break of almost $16,000 on a $500,000 boat. [San Antonio Express-News, 4-24-2011]
Marissa Mark, 28, was indicted in March in Allentown, Pa., for hiring a hit man in 2006 via the then-active website HitManForHire.com, agreeing to pay $37,000 to have a California woman killed (though prosecutors have not revealed the motive). Mark allegedly made traceable payments through the PayPal service (which in recent years has righteously refused to process transactions involving online gambling or the WikiLeaks document dumps, but which in 2006 did in fact handle payments for HitManForHire.com). The hit man site was run by an Egyptian immigrant, who told the Las Vegas Sun in 2008 that he would never contract for murder but sought to make money by double-crossing clients and alerting (for a fee) the intended victims. [Allentown Morning Call, 3-22-2011; Las Vegas Sun, 7-20-2008]
In 2002 News of the Weird mentioned a theme park near Mexico City in which potential emigrants to the U.S. could test their survival skills in an obstacle course mimicking the rigors one would endure sneaking across the border. Recently, Owlchemy Labs, a Massachusetts technology company, announced plans to release an iPhone/iPad app, "Smuggle Truck," a video game in which players compete to drive a pickup truck full of illegals over rocky terrain from Mexico into the U.S. without too many passengers bouncing out (and with in-game "additions" consisting of pregnant women giving birth enroute). Special "green cards" are awarded to winners. (Update: At presstime, Apple rejected the app, and Owlchemy said it would alter the game to one of animals escaping from a forest.) [New York Daily News, 2-6-2011; KNBC-TV, 4-28-2011]
Marla Gilson, 59, was fired in April after her employer callously rejected her offer to work from home in Chevy Chase, Md., at reduced salary, while she recovers from chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant for her leukemia. Gilson's job was chief executive of the Association of Jewish Aging Services of North America, which serves 112 facilities that help frail and elderly Jews during their final years. Gilson's termination also made her health care much more expensive and potentially made her uninsurable in the future if her treatment is successful. (Nonetheless, the board of directors thanked her for her service and wished her a "speedy recovery.") [Washington Post, 4-4-2011]
The notorious U.S. military contractor KBR, prominent for having earned several billion dollars from no-bid contracts during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and which has been accused of numerous employee sexual harassment cover-ups (including nine pending lawsuits filed by female employees), has apparently been voted by readers of Woman Engineer magazine as one of the top 50 places for women to work. (KBR and other companies on the list made announcements in April, but at press time, Woman Engineer's issue containing the list had not been published.) [Mother Jones, 4-7-2011, citing an undated KBR press release of early April 2011]
Fine Point of Iowa Law: Thanks to a loophole recently sanctioned by the Iowa Court of Appeals, Matt Danielson and his wife, Jamie, now own their home in Ankeny, Iowa, outright (value: $278,000) after making just one monthly mortgage payment. Iowa law regards a home mortgage by a married couple as automatically void if only one spouse has signed it, and a thusly voided mortgage is treated as fully satisfied. (The purpose was to prevent one estranged spouse from exploiting the other, but the voiding is automatic regardless of the circumstances.) Legislators are currently trying to change the law to leave the discretion of voiding up to judges. [Des Moines register, 3-17-2011]
Local councils that govern life in the United Kingdom seem overly frightened of liability lawsuits -- even from criminals who might get hurt while committing crimes. London's Daily Telegraph and the Surrey Mirror reported in February that police in the counties of Kent and Surrey had been advising homeowners and merchants to avoid using wire mesh on windows because burglars could seriously gouge themselves while climbing through. Also, electrical engineer David Bishop said police seemed especially concerned that burglars could be electrocuted if they broke into his workshop and thus advised him to post a warning sign outside that could be seen in the dark. [Daily Telegraph, 2-12-2011; Surrey Mirror, 2-14-2011]
In January 2010, shortly after News of the Weird's report, the U.K. government admitted that the British-made "magic wand" bomb-detector its own Department of Trade and Industry was promoting for export to police in Mexico and the Philippines was useless (no better than a Ouija board). Earlier, several British firms had sold thousands to Iraqi police at dollar equivalents of $16,000 to $60,000 (from a manufacturing cost of about $20 each). Furthermore, according to City of London police, "hundreds" of Iraqis had died in Baghdad after suicide bombers were mistakenly allowed into secure areas after being "cleared" by the wands. In January 2011, BBC News reported that a new British company, Unival, featuring a respected retired Army colonel as spokesman, had resumed selling the wands, to Bulgarian police.

Obama: The Man Who Never Was
May 22, 2011
Tuesday, May 24, 2011
I really just had to throw up, but I couldn't because they'd just showed a feature on Obama's trip to Ireland. Dry heaves was all I could muster. The idea of this icon of socialism and perversion cozying up to the Emerald Isle, a historical bastion of the spirit of Christian liberty and great learning -- the whole thing kvelled over as a great tolerance-teachable moment for all mankind -- was one of the most sheerly emetic I'd ever experienced!
It would be great if the ones preaching tolerance were not the most concentratedly intolerant and hateful on earth. It would be vastly different, but as it is it's constant communist spin on everything in all directions.
Our headline, above, is as I found it in the source site -- the outstanding vdare.com. Below is the rest of it. What does it have to do with the PN or taxes? Plenty: the American system of law and government worked quite well as long as America was still America. You can kiss the Bill of Rights goodbye if we're going to be a model de-mock-crazy, the new USSR, or the world's ethnic dumping ground. You can fight to save America's borders and traditional ethnic makeup, or you can get ready for Sharia law and much worse -- think Sudan or maybe Zimbabwe. Now for the Vdare store with ANUNews's focus quote:
I’m proud to say that I have been criticizing Somali immigration since 2003, when I wrote Banned in Lewiston: Female Genital Mutilation? to illustrate that not all diversity is equal, particularly regarding women’s rights and safety. In fact, Somalis are arguably the worst choice of any ethnic group on earth for immigration to a first-world country because of their barbaric cultural practices as well as propensity toward violent jihad and crime. http://blog.vdare.com/archives/2011/05/23/somali-immigration-extreme-diversity-is-pushed-by-powerful-interestsnote-reference-to-shelbyville-tyson-foods/

Rand Paul on Extension of the Patriot Act: 5/23/11
I would call this his best work on the podium yet.
A GE engineer quit years ago when the company wouldn’t listen about faults in the Fukushima reactors
Why does this sound familiar? Maybe because in New Orleans, bureaucrats had turned a deaf ear from decades as citizens had begged for crucial levee reinforcement?
Few SC taxpayers paying online sales taxes
How many of them would be the first to rap us for not paying our “fair share” each April 15?
PN meeting notes
In Asheville this month, Kathy Patriot reported on her project of formally gathering citizens to tour the local water plant, researching how much fluoride is being dispensed, etc. In Greenville, Nicole Patriot spoke on the need to save up storage food and the option of buying it in bulk from her eFoodsDirect franchise. Several attendees made purchases at the restaurant.
Email forward of the day
As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our President and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%. But since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees instead. This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and I didn't know how t o choose who would have to go.
So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lots and found sixty 'Obama' bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem. They voted for change......I gave it to them.
I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

This government has a wild imagination and a broad scope of activity for the benefit of all humankind!
If so, three cheers for Vladimir.
Anything but the truth. Anything, anything, anything but the truth, i.e. that is was an inside job by Bushoid Insiders for the express purpose of clearing the runway to "fight for our freedoms" by destroying them via the PATRIOT Act ad nauseam.
It's tragic. It's an unthinkable "anti-semitic" outrage. And every country should do likewise!
Dear God, anything but more Insiders. Fire them all! Good God, Marine Le Pen in Time magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people? How good can it get?
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in D.C. -- one from New Jersey , another from Tennessee and the third, from Florida . They go with a White House official to examine the fence.
How it works:
The Florida contractor, Jonathan, takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil "Well", he says, "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."
Cletus, the Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."
Vito from Jersey doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers,
The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"
The New Jersey contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence."
"Done!" replies the government official.
And that, my friends, is how it all works!

The bottom line is that they can say he graduated Harvard Law, was a community organizer in Chicago (can you honestly imagine him even organizing a card file?), ad nauseam, but all avenues to research on these subjects are fruitless or, damningly, blocked by court order. This new presentation is intriguing. I don't say I automatically believe it -- it could just as easily be another smokescreen over his real origins, which I'm convinced means the late demagogue and sex pervert Frank Marshall Davis.
I just thought you'd like to know this report exists. We're not quite up to the point of saturation/apathy/burnout on the subject. Not yet!
More Obama Exposés
..........Also in today's mail: a film that nails down the Kennedy assassination conspiracy yet further. They count thirteen bullet hits in the incident -- from a diversity of directions! You won't believe the number of different ways in which security was dispensed with that day. The real question is why President Kennedy would even have gotten in the car under those conditions, much less gone for a long ride in it. Maybe they forced him to at gunpoint, telling him it was for his own ultimate good?
JFK 2-The George H. W. Bush Connection-Full Length Documentary
I don't think you'll ever find another such examination of the President's skull wounds or the expert witnesses in the matter. Grim, gory, but major. Gov. Connally obligingly changed his story, but his original one is on the record here among many others.
Pray for the safety of the producers of this film.
For what it may be worth, a commenter on an article by the renowned offshore guru Simon Black asserts that it was what you might call 9/11 Junior, and it's led to some lively debate.
His post covers expatriation (a subject explored in conversation following last night's wonderful PN meeting in Greenville) and the money issue, so here's the whole thing: The writer and many who added replies scoffed (or jeered) at Black's central thesis that this country is so far gone the only thing to do is leave it. In a way I hope they're right. Here are two great posts from lower down on democracy:
You may know that Mr. Black is now working closely with our friend Dr. John Cobin to urge people to get out of ameriKa while the getting's good. I hope they're wrong but think they're right. John asserts that any of us could make it in Chile, e.g. by teaching English.
The attack on the IRS building certainly was odd. Contrary to what the SPLC or Homeland Security will tell you, it's totally unlike our kind of people -- tax patriots -- to commit acts of terrorism. The incident has never been mentioned again; unlike OKC, Waco, 9/11 et al it hasn't become a pillar of modern ameriKan dialectics despite being far more iconic that the others since it embodied what millions of ameriKans would love most to see happen in their heart of hearts.
The article reply that got me going is itself rather slick, and includes no references except re HAARP, so who knows? All told, I tend to believe it rather than the official story spewed by the media at the time.

The answer is obvious -- nothing would change! There's no connection. Here's where it gets deliciously easy: you just remind them of the real reason gas is so expensive -- the fact that the price of every gallon is roughly 1/3 to 1/2 TAXES for the maintenance of roads and bridges, plus building ever more of them. Your questioner has no option; everybody knows it's so. You've pinned him in one move.
The South Carolina Department of Transportation just proved it all over again "in living color". The agency brings the startling news that taxes aren't high enough and the people will just have to pay more. How much do you suppose will ever satisfy them?
SCDOT: Higher Gas Tax Needed To Maintain Roads
by Graeme Moore
..............Talbert Black has more news on our favorite subject. It reflects badly on our governor, as did something terrible I heard in an AM news radio broadcast today: She has enthusiastically signed the Orwellian new law to require photo identification at polls. Affecting a jingoistic Teddy Roosevelt-like tone on the subject, she told the people of South Carolina that if they have to show picture ID to get on a plane or get into a federal building (or something like that) they should be pleased as punch to do the same at the polls.
She made it sound like a real privilege. I couldn't believe it. It reminded me of the horrible days of president slick willy, who could always affect a "winsome" or "plucky" tone to sell something murderous to the sheeple. As he was the national cub scout for eight years through that ploy, is Gov. Haley morphing into South Carolina's winsomely earnest First Bobby-Soxer as we watch hoping against hope that there will be no gubernatorial bait-and-switch with her? Is this the week she's unofficially started to run with the big dogs and sell us down the river?
Friends of South Carolina!The South Carolina House caved today!
In a vote of 97-20, the South Carolina House reversed an earlier vote of 47–71 that would have preserved equal protection under the law. The Amazon “safe harbor” tax exemption passed the House Wednesday.
South Carolina exempts more sales tax than it collects according to numbers published by the South Carolina Policy Council. In fact, if all the tax exemptions were eliminated, then the sales tax could be reduced to 3.15% without reducing the amount collected!
Through strong arm tactics, including reported threats regarding how district lines would be redrawn, the Speaker of the House, Bobby Harrell, and House Majority Leader, Kenny Bingham, were able to turn the hearts of an additional fifty representatives against all the traditional retailers in our state.
In one of the worst examples of leadership I have ever witnessed, Governor Nikki Haley “fought” this legislation by expounding all its faults, and then saying, “However, if you pass it, I won’t veto it.”
Huh?!? Is that anyway to lead the opposition against a bad bill?
How can she expect members of the House to take a risk and vote against the pressure brought to bear by the Speaker and the Majority Leader when she won’t even commit to using her only “vote” to veto the legislation if it makes it to her desk?
She keeps citing a memorandum of understanding sign by the previous administration. However, that does not prevent her from vetoing a law she disagrees with. It can’t! Only she can decide to sign or veto legislation.
Governor Haley needs to lead by example! Her actions must match her words!
For those who need a refresher on why this “safe harbor” tax exemption should be opposed, please follow this link to see a write up by Karen Martin of the Spartanburg Tea Party. She spent a lot of time researching the issue and has created the best summary I have seen regarding it.Let me give you just one small example of how this bill helps Amazon to keep hurting small business in South Carolina.
Robert Schaeffer, owner of Rice Music House, told me people often walk into his store to find a piece of sheet music. But instead of buying it from him, they pull out their smart phone and order it from Amazon or another on line retailer. It is cheaper for them to buy on line because no sales tax is charged. They walk out of his store, never buying a thing from him.Without a presence, or “nexus”, in our state, federal law prohibits South Carolina form collecting sales tax in a situation like this. Now, Amazon wants to move to our state and make use of our roads, airport, and emergency services which are paid for by our taxes. But they still don’t want to collect those taxes!
Amazon wants to keep their price advantage over traditional retailers. They still want Rob Schaeffer to maintain their free show room! Ninety-seven members of the South Carolina House think that is a good thing. And Governor Haley is talking a great talk, but refuses to walk the walk.Here are the 97 House members who voted against every retail business, small and large, in South Carolina Wednesday:

..................Our next item will have resonance for any conservative who remembers the early Castro era. I certainly do -- I was in fourth grade during the Cuban missile crisis, apparently the same age as this guy. We children didn't know politics from nothin', but the stuff our teacher told us about what was going on 90 miles from ameriKan shores was enough to ruin the most stoic childhood.
What a shame ameriKa has had anything to do with Cuba or the USSR -- above all, any fear of them. I'm convinced we're exactly what kept communism going in both places in order for the fedgov to have bugbears to "save" us from, in stark contrast to its heroic dragon-slaying poses past and present. Just as Washington's totally needless involvement in World War II gave my mother night terrors as a young girl, my youth was sullied by mortal dread of names like Khrushchev, Castro, and Mao Tse-Tung. All needless, all irrelevant if this country had simply claimed its birthright as an island of neutrality in a "new world" with an ocean on each side to shield it from European and Asian woes!
I remember asking dad about Castro when I was about 9 years old. I asked, "Is Castro a good guy or bad?" Dad said he couldn't tell!! This was about 1955. We were living in Louisiana at the time . Dad was in the army there.
Cuba was fairly close and in the news a lot. The Cubans were asking the same question! Ike was president.
This past July, we had the pleasure of sharing a summer barbecue with a refugee from Cuba. Our dinner conversation was starkly different than most. This refugee came to the United States as a young boy in the early 1960s. His family was more fortunate than most as they were able to bring a suitcase and $100 when they fled Castro's newly formed revolutionary paradise.
Our dinner consisted of all-American fare: hamburgers, potato salad, watermelon and fresh ars of sweet corn. This is a menu shared with family and friends nationwide, while celebrating the birth of our beloved America on the Fourth of July.
We began with a simple discussion about our country and the direction it has taken since Barack Obama came to power. We shared the usual complaints about the sour economy and liberal social engineering emanating from the rulers in Washington.
But then he said it. The sentence came naturally. I assume it was. unplanned. But it carried the weight of a freight train. "You know when Castro took power, none of us knew he was a Communist."
We sat stunned. He continued, "Yes, we all thought he was a patriot, a nationalist. Before the revolution he didn't sound like a radical."
The comparison at this point was easy, and I interjected, "You mean just like Barack Obama?"
He responded, "Yes, just like Barack Obama."
He continued, "We were all shocked as the government just continued to grab more power. First they said the revolution is over, so please turn.. in your guns. We all complied."
"I remember my uncle saying after it started, 'Castro will only nationalize some of the big industries, he will never come and take our family hardware store. 'But that is exactly what happened, Castro started with the sugar mills and the large industries, but they eventually came and knocked on the door of our family hardware store. My family had run this store for generations. They said we now own the hardware store, you work for us. And that nice, large four-bedroom home you own, it is now our property also, and you can move yourself and five children into two rooms of the house because others are moving in with you."
The lesson learned from this discussion is a lesson most Americans refuse to hear. Political leaders can lie about their agenda and once in office they can take totally unexpected turns.
If you had asked us three years ago if we thought General Motors would be nationalized, we would have never believed it. We could never contemplate a country where the rule of law, the most fundamental building block of a justice society would be evaporating just like it did in Castro's Cuba in the early 1960s.
But the news of injustice keeps increasing. Black Panthers are not charged with wrongdoing by the U.S. Department of Justice because their crimes are against whites. The bondholders of GM are stripped of their assets without due process by the government. Governmental leaders are bribed in full daylight only to have all investigation of the crimes stifled by the Attorney General. The U.S. borders are overrun with crime.. and illegal activity and the leaders in D.C. act as if it is important to protect the lawbreakers while the innocent are killed and overrun. When local communities attempt to enforce the law, they are ridiculed and threatened as racists and bigots. They are sued by the very administration entrusted with enforcing the law.
Without the rule of law the U.S. Constitution is a sham. Without the rule of law our beloved America is swiftly becoming a country where only the well connected and politically, powerful will be safe. As Michelle Malkin has so eloquently explained in her recent book, a culture of corruption has replaced honest government.
The only way this problem will be fixed is by massive citizen action. All honest citizens that want to be treated equally must come together and demand that the favoritism, the bribes, the uneven enforcement of law end now. And yes, it can happen here./\/.\/\/.

The politicians and lawmen have forgotten about the Fourth Amendment... well the Constitution. Thank God, there are citizens out there dedicated enough to have the patience to teach them the ABC's of their job description let's hope they find it palatable.
Out of respect for the patriot who emailed this I won't divulge his name here or write him to point out the strange "Missing S" with which s/he begins.
"Missing S syndrome" -- the chronic assumption that if a word has an S near the end, you don't have to add one to form a plural as your fourth-grade teacher taught you so well (and as obvious, basic logic would dictate). Almost as cheesy as incorrectly saying the word "is" twice in a row.
I'm being ironic for a purpose: the more correct our people's writing is, the wider audience it will reach.
Tell them to co-sponsor and call for committee hearing NOW!
