People Of All Ages Sign Petition For Mandatory Euthanasia For Senior Citizens Under Obamacare

      Media analyst and author Mark Dice heads out to see if Californians will sign a petition for mandatory euthanasia program for seniors and terminally ill people in order to cut costs in Obamacare.
Some of these people are the most calloused people I’ve ever seen. Dice asks random people if they’ll sign a petition for “mandatory” euthanasia provision in Obama Care to help keep healthcare costs down by putting senior citizens to sleep.
     There was a bright light in the midst of it as one man and apparently another woman actually realized what was being pushed. The rest of the people simply demonstrate the mind-numbed robots living in our society. This should be a wakeup call to all Americans, especially our seniors and those with terminally ill diseases.

Howard Dean Admits Obamacare Includes Death Panels

 When Congress debated Obamacare, pro-life advocates and Republicans like Sarah Palin were castigated for claiming the government-run health care program would include death panels that would ration health care treatment.
 Now, former presidential candidate Howard Dean has essentially admitted they were right and is calling for the repeal of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). In a Wall Street Journal op-ed Monday he called the IPAB “essentially a health-care rationing body” that he believes will fail.

“There does have to be control of costs in our health-care system. However, rate setting — the essential mechanism of the IPAB — has a 40-year track record of failure,” Dean wrote.
Dean, who is a healthcare industry representative as a senior adviser at the law and lobbying firm McKenna Long & Aldridge, said his experience  as governor of Vermont turned him off to government control of healthcare prices.
“What ends up happening in these schemes (which many states including my home state of Vermont have implemented with virtually no long-term effect on costs) is that patients and physicians get aggravated because bureaucrats in either the private or public sector are making medical decisions without knowing the patients,” Dean wrote.

The Scope of Scandals Plaguing US Governments is Astounding

     It is truly time for America to move beyond the Political Duocracy that brought about the current state of scandal, accelerated dishonesty and outright fraud that intersects every area of the American political scene. Democrats and Republicans have conspired to destroy any semblance of integrity, decency and fair play.
     The overriding preoccupation with what government can get away with, far outweigh any attempt to guarantee honesty, or lawful activity.
   Look at just one afternoon's headlines and contemplate that times 365.
Dirty Weiner Pens Apology for Pervy Obsession...


BANKRUPT: Detroit City Council calls for federal investigation into George Zimmerman...

Two Food Stamp Recipients Added For Every Job 'Created'...
    Those are just a few of the headlines that plague America in 2013. Congress and the Senate enjoy astoundingly small approval numbers and even with a fawning, worshipping press corps, the president continues to slide in popularity. There is no magic bullet for the USA. Our two party system sentences us to a future as ridiculously ugly as our recent past. 
     It is time.

Reverse Racism's Lynch Mob

Truth is so inconvenient for those who make a living off hate and Al Sharpton has a history of deranged attacks on truth, to raise money for himself.
     There was an interesting article recently,  entitled “Race and the Gun Debate.” ( Wall St. Journal, Mar 27, 2013) Among the statistics he cites are that 54% of all murders involve black victims, virtually all of whom were killed by black murderers, and yet blacks comprise only 13% of the population.
      These are familiar numbers, but, as Williams points out, although more than half the “gun problem” can be laid at the feet of blacks, the gun debate never seems to mention this."
      The numbers would indicate that almost 3/4 of black Americans have no father figure, other than rappers and Obama...
      "Why is this happening? According to Juan Williams , the out of wedlock birth rate for blacks is now 72%. This leads to more than 70% of black mothers being on welfare raising more than 70% of black children without fathers.
      That’s part of the problem. Another part, Williams says, is: “a dysfunctional gangster-rap culture that glorifies promiscuity, drug dealers and the power of the gun.”
      So now we have black culture of violence financed by the welfare system producing what are – by any measure – distorted values. One might think this needs to be addressed.
      Not so. The President of the United States recently invited the gangster rapper Jay-Z to his inauguration. Jay-Z is the black poster boy for the value system that Juan Williams says is destroying the black community. Inviting him to the presidential inauguration is, by implication, an endorsement of the mindlessness characteristic of Jay-Z and his supporters.
      But Obama is not a moralist. He is a politician who panders himself to the black vote and avoids criticizing the criminal culture that has enslaved his people. Obama made no move toward gun control until a white madman killed young children at Sandy Hook . In Obama’s mind, that single act instantly transformed the “gun problem” into a white (not black) problem. It is about white misconduct, not about blacks, black culture or black behavior."

The Disintegration of American Rights

Florida Nurse Terrorized by US Marshals in Warrantless Raid

Julie Wilson
July 19, 2013

It was a typical evening after work when Sarasota, Fl., resident Louise Goldsberry finished dinner and began to clean up.
The nurse, employed by the Sarasota Doctors Hospital, proceeded towards the kitchen sink to clean the dishes when she gazed out her window. Her gaze met the eyes of a man wearing a hunting vest who was aiming a gun directly at her face.
Goldsberry, understandably frightened, dropped to the floor and began screaming. Although in a panic, she managed to crawl her way into the bedroom to retrieve her weapon, a .38-caliber revolver she had purchased to provide comfort while living alone.
She maintained a concealed weapons permit for the firearm.
Craig Dorris, her boyfriend who worked as a manager for a security alarm company, heard her screams and tried to make sense of his girlfriend’s reaction when suddenly they both heard a man screaming to open the front door.

The man, shouting obscenities, claimed to be a police officer and ordered them to open the front door.
Goldsberry wasn’t convinced. The man she saw through the window looked more like an “armed thug” than a police officer.
Luckily the boyfriend Dorris, was able to remain calm and request ID from the man, but the yelling continued and the man shouted, “We’re the f—- police; open the f—- door!”
Frightened, Dorris moved away from the door half expecting bullets to riddle through it.
Goldsberry, who had never been arrested before, wondered if they could really be police and if they would speak this way. She had no idea as to why the police would be trying to force their way into her apartment with their weapons drawn.
As the couple stayed huddled in the hallway, Goldsberry still clutching her weapon, watched in horror as the unidentified man pushed open the front door, which they swore had been locked.
A man crept around the corner aiming his weapon at them both and shouted, “Drop the f—- gun or I’ll f—- shoot you,” he ordered.
Goldsberry’s screams heightened, but Dorris studied the man who was now standing inside the apartment. He observed him holding a tactical shield for protection and decided he appeared to be well equipped enough to be police.
Dorris realizing that any minute the standoff could result in the death of both of them, began reasoning with the man, surrendering, raising his hands above his head and asking the man to step outside to talk.
After given permission, he moved towards the front door peacefully but was immediately grabbed and placed in handcuffs.
After being arrested outside, Dorris saw numerous men wearing vests with the words federal marshal strewn across them. Dozens of Sarasota Police officers flooded the scene, as well as some others that he couldn’t identify, which he found unusual since he often worked with police at his security company.
Dorris described it as a scene from the movie Rambo.
Dorris then yelled inside to his girlfriend that it was OK to drop the gun and come out. Paralyzed with fear, Goldsberry froze and shouted, “I’m an American citizen, you have no right to do this.”
The standoff continued for several more minutes before finally releasing her weapon onto the floor.
She was rushed by officers and quickly handcuffed.
The couple remained cuffed outside for the next thirty minutes while police searched their home without a warrant for a man they had never heard of and certainly never seen.
Finally they were released and the police left.
According to police, the man at the door was Matt Wiggins of the U.S. Marshal’s fugitive division.
When the Herald Tribune, Sarasota’s local newspaper, questioned the marshal he claimed they were searching for child-rape suspect.
Wiggins claimed they had a tip that the suspect, Kyle Riley, was inside the apartment complex, but admitted they had no specific information that indicated he was inside Goldsberry’s apartment.
Wiggins said when the people inside the apartment didn’t immediately open up, that gave them reason to believe they were harboring the alleged child rapist.
The U.S. marshal even had the audacity to say, “Nobody in the other units reacted that way.”
Tom Lyons, a reporter for the Herald Tribune countered, “Maybe none of them had a gun pointed at them through the window.”
Of course Wiggins didn’t seem to think that fact condoned the horrified woman’s behavior. He said he acted with restraint and didn’t like having a gun aimed at him.
“I went above and beyond. I have to go home at night,” said Wiggins.
Lyons argued, “She had a gun pointed at her, too, and she wasn’t wearing body armor and behind a shield.”
“She had no reason to expect police or think police would ever aim into her kitchen and cuss at her through her door to get in. It seemed crazy and she was panicked.”
Wiggins responded with, “We were clearly the police, she can’t say she didn’t know.”
“She does say so, actually,” said Lyons.
In an interview with Lyons the following day, Goldsberry explained, “I couldn’t see them. They had a big light in my eyes.”
The man she saw aiming a gun at her through the window had nothing visible that said “cop.”
“I was thinking, is this some kind of nutjob?” she said.
Turns out it was just a U.S. Federal marshal exercising what he thinks is his right under his authoritative title, and of course was “just doing his job.”
Eventually Wiggins admitted, “I feel bad for her. But at the same time, I had to reasonably believe the bad guy was in her house based on what they were doing.”
Despite the fact that she was pointing a gun at police, and Goldsberry wasn’t shot, Wiggins says, “She sure shouldn’t be going to the press.”
The suspect, Kyle Riley, was arrested several hours later in another part of Sarasota.

Student Threatened, Suspended and Ridiculed For asking Classes Be Presented in English

Student booted from U.S. college for favoring English!

Sues school over 9-month suspension for requesting nursing studies not be conducted in Spanish   

An Arizona college is being sued for labeling a student a “bigot” and punishing her with a long-term suspension after she requested that English be used in her nursing studies class so she could learn the subject.
The action was filed against Pima Community College on behalf of student Terri Bennett, who alleged that school officials created a “learning environment [that] was hostile to her as an English-language speaker.”
The complaint alleges that Bennett repeatedly was thwarted in her work listening to lectures, finishing group studies and participating in skills labs, clinicals and other learning activities by fellow students who spoke Spanish, which she did not understand. Study groups and labs in which she participated, an essential part of her nursing training, were being conducted in Spanish.
In response, she asked the college – which operates, ironically, under Arizona’s English-only legal requirement – to help enforce the use of English in her class so she could continue to pursue her educational goals. However, according to the complaint, Bennett was targeted by the school with ridicule, attacks, threats and, eventually, a nine-month suspension.
The group ProEnglish is helping Bennett with legal support.
Read Terri Bennett’s entire legal complaint here.
“What happened to Terri Bennett is an outrage,” said ProEnglish Executive Director Robert Vandervoort. “For simply seeking a classroom environment where she can learn in English, Terri was harshly treated by the PCC administration, viciously insulted, and punished with a nine-month suspension.
“This school should be known as ‘Politically Correct College,’” said Vandervoort, whose organization advocates for the use of English as a unifying factor. “We look forward to bringing justice for Terri and making sure other students are allowed to learn in English.”
Paul Schwalback, public information manager for the tax-supported institution, sent a college-approved statement on the case to WND.
“Due to federal law protecting student privacy, Pima Community College is not able to comment specifically about Terri Bennett’s situation,” it started.
But the college did talk about the case, explaining, “We are confident the evidence will demonstrate that the college acted appropriately with respect to Ms. Bennett’s situation.”
PCC also touted its “positive learning environment for all students” and efforts to hold “students and employees accountable to those standards.”
“While the legal process is pending, we do not believe it would be appropriate to make a detailed statement about the allegations in the lawsuit,” the statement concluded.
See Terri Bennett and her attorneys explain their case below.
ProEnglish explained that after Bennett asked for English usage in her class, “school administrators called Ms. Bennett a ‘bigot,’ and she received a nine-month suspension.”
“Ms. Bennett reached out to ProEnglish for assistance in May as PCC took these actions against her. ProEnglish contacted the Arizona law firm of Munger & Chadwick to represent Ms. Bennett. On July 8, 2013, the school was served with a complaint from Ms. Bennett through her attorneys, seeking administrative review,” ProEnglish said.
The court complaint, dated Monday, alleges violations of the Arizona Constitution and the First Amendment as well as unlawful suspension, defamation, violation of the right to privacy and false light, discrimination, retaliation, harassment, breach of contract, breach of duty of good faith and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
“On or about March 18, 2013, Ms. Bennett started a class in Introduction to Nursing, presented by PCC instructor, Ms. Elizabeth Coleman. During this class, the talking interruptions and distractions, all in Spanish, from her peers increased dramatically, to the point that it impeded Ms. Bennett’s ability to concentrate, focus, listen to the lecture and participate in group studies, skills labs, clinicals, and other learning activities,” the complaint alleges.
Within weeks, there was an “interaction” between Spanish-speaking students and non-Spanish-speaking students in class “in which the Spanish speakers were asked not to speak in Spanish in front of the non-Spanish speakers.”
“The Spanish-speaking group of students laughed and mocked Ms. Bennett and the other non-Spanish speakers,” the complaint notes.
Eventually, she complained to the school and in a meeting with David Kutzler, the director of the nursing program.
Kutzler accused Bennett of “discriminating against Mexican-Americans” and threatened to “write [her] up” for a violation of the code of conduct based on discrimination and harassment, the complaint says.
He accused Bennett of being a “bigot and a b**ch” and warned, “you do not want to go down that road.”
She persisted in expressing her concerns, contacting the student services coordinator, who set up a meeting in which she was accused of discrimination. Another meeting was to follow, with a dean, but the dean canceled it.
“Then on Monday morning, April 22, 2013, Ms. Bennett arrived on campus. … She immediately noticed Mr. Kutzler running from his car into the Nursing Office building. She also noticed there were several law enforcement vehicles in the parking lot. … As Ms. Bennett entered the building, she was approached by a man who identified himself as head of PCC security, and who requested whether she was Terri Bennett and requested her to show her identity card, which Ms. Bennett did. … Ms. Bennett was given a sealed envelope, informed that she was immediately suspended from PCC, and instructed to leave campus immediately. … Upon information and belief, a police vehicle followed her to the freeway. Mr. Kutzler sent an email to PCC staff advising them that they were not allowed to talk to Ms. Bennett.”
The case says Bennett was humiliated, shamed and afraid because of the encounter.
One part of the sealed letter accused her of presenting “an unreasonable risk of danger to yourself and/or others or … your presence on college property poses a significant risk of disruption of education activities.”
Her punishment was the 9-month suspension.
However, the lawsuit notes that the school offered no reasons for the charges.
A second part of the sealed letter accused her of engaging in discriminatory conduct, disrupting class and “harrassing (sic) Mexican-American students in your class with inappropriate remarks about their heritage.”
The lawsuit notes that the state constitution dictates that “the English language is the official language of the state of Arizona, and a representative of government is obliged to preserve, protect and enhance the role of the English language, as well as not discriminate against any person or in any way penalize any person because the person uses or attempts to use or wishes to use the English language.”
Bennett’s representatives told local media outlets they likely would seek damages amounting to six figures.

NSA Admits It LIED About Extent of Spying on Citizens

     Big Brother lies and spins, lies and spins.
     The lying and spinning never cease and the pool of citizens whose privacy they violate widens at breakneck speed. In basic terms, the NSA is spying on you, your friends and THEIR friends, all the time.
     To lift a quote from former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, "The Obama Administration lied about the spying. Then lied about lying. Then lied about lying about their spying."

     Analysts look "two or three hops" from terror suspects when evaluating terror activity, Inglis revealed. Previously, the limit of how surveillance was extended had been described as two hops. This meant that if the NSA were following a phone metadata or web trail from a terror suspect, it could also look at the calls from the people that suspect has spoken with—one hop. And then, the calls that second person had also spoken with—two hops. Terror suspect to person two to person three. Two hops. And now: A third hop.
Think of it this way. Let's say the government suspects you are a terrorist and it has access to your Facebook account. If you're an American citizen, it can't do that currently (with certain exceptions)—but for the sake of argument. So all of your friends, that's one hop. Your friends' friends, whether you know them or not—two hops. Your friends' friends' friends, whoever they happen to be, are that third hop. That's a massive group of people that the NSA apparently considers fair game.

     Using automated scanners, law enforcement agencies across the country have amassed millions of digital records on the location and movement of every vehicle with a license plate, according to a study published Wednesday by the American Civil Liberties Union.
     "There's just a fundamental question of whether we're going to live in a society where these dragnet surveillance systems become routine," said Catherine Crump, a staff attorney with the ACLU. The civil rights group is proposing that police departments immediately delete any records of cars not linked to a crime.
     Police Spokespeople uniformly defend such intrusive Big Brother, with a variation on the old, worn out, "If you aren't doing anything WRONG, you haven't got anything to worry about," line.
     "There's no expectation of privacy" for a vehicle driving on a public road or parked in a public place, said Lt. Bill Hedgpeth, a spokesman for the Mesquite Police Department in Texas, which has records stretching back to 2008, although the city plans next month to begin deleting files older than two years. "It's just a vehicle. It's just a license plate."
      In Yonkers, N.Y., just north of the Bronx, police said retaining the information indefinitely helps detectives solve future crimes. In a statement, the department said it uses license plate readers as a "reactive investigative tool" that is only accessed if detectives are looking for a particular vehicle in connection to a crime.

     As is almost always the truth,  these privacy breeches bring little more than nuisance issues, like expired license plates, to the attention of law enforcement, nothing that even remotely justifies the obscene expenditure and intrusion in to people's lives.
     The ACLU study, based on 26,000 pages of responses from 293 police departments and state agencies across the country, also found that license plate scanners produced a small fraction of "hits," or alerts to police that a suspicious vehicle has been found. In Maryland, for example, the state reported reading about 29 million plates between January and May of last year. Of that amount, about 60,000 — or roughly 1 in every 500 license plates — were suspicious. The No. 1 crime? A suspended or revoked registration, or a violation of the state's emissions inspection program accounted for 97 percent of all alerts.
Office Dennis Vafier of the Alexandria Police Dept., uses a laptop in his squad car to scan vehicle license plates during his patrols, Tuesday, July 16, 2013 in Alexandria, Va. Local police departments across the country have amassed millions of digital records on the location and movements of vehicles with a license plate using automated scanners. Affixed to police cars, bridges or buildings, the scanners capture images of passing or parked vehicles and note their location, dumping that information into police databases. Departments keep the records for weeks or even years. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)

United States Department of Propaganda in Full Swing

     One of the ugliest things Hitler and Stalin did was to flood the news with nothing but state sponsored lies and disinformation. Now, thanks to the drastic watering down of the Smith-Mundt Act, America is once again, being intentionally exposed to government censored news.

     For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government's mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts. So what just happened?
     Until this month, a vast ocean of U.S. programming produced by the Broadcasting Board of Governors such as Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and the Middle East Broadcasting Networks could only be viewed or listened to at broadcast quality in foreign countries. The programming varies in tone and quality, but its breadth is vast: It's viewed in more than 100 countries in 61 languages. The topics covered include human rights abuses in Iran; self-immolation in Tibet; human trafficking across Asia; and on-the-ground reporting in Egypt and Iraq.
      The restriction of these broadcasts was due to the Smith-Mundt Act, a long standing piece of legislation that has been amended numerous times over the years, perhaps most consequentially by Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright. In the 70s, Fulbright was no friend of VOA and Radio Free Europe, and moved to restrict them from domestic distribution, saying they "should be given the opportunity to take their rightful place in the graveyard of Cold War relics." Fulbright's amendment to Smith-Mundt was bolstered in 1985 by Nebraska Senator Edward Zorinsky who argued that such "propaganda" should be kept out of America as to distinguish the U.S. "from the Soviet Union where domestic propaganda is a principal government activity."
      Zorinsky and Fulbright sold their amendments on sensible rhetoric: American taxpayers shouldn't be funding propaganda for American audiences. So did Congress just tear down the American public's last defense against domestic propaganda?

Media and Race Hustlers Lose Their Cool Over Zimmerman Verdict

     The verdict came late at night, on a Saturday, which avoided much of the prime time melee that would have certainly followed. Brushing away the desires of everyone from Barack Obama to NY Giants wide receiver, Victor Cruz, an all women jury, picked specifically by a politically inspired special prosecutor and fed a daily ration of race baited, emotion over logic, testimony, George Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder, in the Trayvon Martin case.
     Racist, Media Whore, Special Prosecutor - Angela Corey, ignored the destruction of evidence to avoid it getting into the hands of Zimmerman defense team, FIRED the employee that testified the her office destroyed some evidence and suppressed other important facts.
In the real world that is called a FELONY. Indict Angela Corey. http://cdn.breitbart.com/mediaserver/Breitbart/Big-Government/2012/04/20/Corey.jpg
Communities across America braced for a day of demonstration, and possibly even dissent, as the public awoke Sunday to learn a six-person Florida jury had acquitted George Zimmerman of second-degree murder, overnight, in the February 2012 killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Protesters on the West Coast massed, and in some cases marched Saturday in four California cities, beneath the lingering sunshine after the verdict was announced around 10 p.m. on the East Coast. 
Most of the California demonstrations proved peaceful, although matters were marred by sporadic reports of stray violence and vandalism, including the halt of a passenger train, the burning of American and California flags, the lighting of small fires in city roadways, shattered storefront windows and the spray painting of a courthouse, as well as the damaging of a police squad car. 
In Oakland, police said about 100 people protested, with some among the crowd breaking windows and starting fires in the streets. As the protest eventually fizzled, the office of police information added that it had no word of any arrests as of 2 a.m. local time.
However, some Oakland marchers reportedly vandalized a police squad car, and police were -- at one point - forced to form a line to block the protesters' path.
The Oakland Tribune reported some downtown office windows had been shattered, and footage from a television helicopter portrayed people starting fires in the street and spray painting anti-police graffiti. Protesters, there, also reportedly burned an American, and California state flag and spray painted Alameda County's Davidson courthouse.
Meanwhile, in San Francisco, raucous, yet peaceful protesters marched on the city’s Mission District neighborhood; while about 200 in Los Angeles convened for a vigil in Leimart Park, the city’s historically black neighborhood. City News Service in Los Angeles reported at one point that a smaller group halted an Expo Line train, somewhere within the city, but police could not immediately confirm details of that account.
Los Angeles Police Department Lt. Andy Neiman said another group of 50 to 100 demonstrators marched around midnight.
"There was a period where crowds were running among vehicles, but police dissuaded them," he reportedly said, although he added that he knew of no arrests.

Scandal Laden Administration Holds "Secret" Meeting With Only Liberal Journ-O-Listers Invited

     When Barack Obama claimed his administration would the "most transparent in history," many laughed and even more doubted his word and sanity. Five years in and we know both concerns were valid.
     This week Obama held ANOTHER closed door meeting with only progressive journalists, to pump defense of his signature legislation, obamacare. The openly hypocritical president can't seem to find any issue where he isn't willing to break his word, lie to the people, violate the law and undermine the US Constitution, so this doesn't surprise anyone, official DC included.
The White House held a background briefing Friday to discuss Obamacare implementation with a handful of journalists from liberal and progressive outlets.
Slate blogger Matthew Yglesias posted a photograph to Instagram Friday featuring himself and other liberal journalists at the White House, with the caption “#thistown.”
Yglesias’ photograph features American Prospect staff writer Jamelle Bouie and MSNBC’s Benjy Sarlin attending the briefing.
Yglesias, who publicly cheered the death of conservative activist Andrew Breitbart, is known as a member of a tight-knit circle of progressive bloggers that includes Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein and low-rated MSNBC host Chris Hayes.
Klein and Hayes garnered conservative criticism in 2011 for attending an off-the-record White House briefing at which Obama disclosed his strategy on the temporary payroll tax holiday. Klein also set off a round of controversy in November 2011 for briefing Senate Democratic staffers on the super committee.
BuzzFeed reporter Evan McMorris-Santoro first tweeted about the meeting Friday afternoon. Yglesias did not respond via email to a request for comment. The White House also did not respond to a request for comment.
As The Daily Caller reported, Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor plans to introduce legislation before the August recess that would ban the scandal-plagued Internal Revenue Service from implementing Obamacare, which would pose a severe liability to the health care law’s full implementation.

Obama Administration ORDERS Federal Workers to Spy on One Another

     As the last vestiges of freedom slip quietly away, the never quiet Obama regime continue to hack away personal liberty and protections. In the latest outrage, Barack Obama orders all federal workers, at the risk of jail, to spy on all other federal workers, including spying on their personal habits, vacation plans, personal spending as well as lifestyle, personal behavior, attitudes and opinions of co-workers. The last certainly leaves the door open for personal vendettas to become the most common form of reporting, as jealous, angry, or disgruntled workers to report those who stand between them and promotions.

     Seen by many as another step towards Soviet style controls, the regime apparently is motivated by the embarrassing NSA spying scandal, which has outraged the president. Of course, the president is not outraged that his administration is engaged in unconstitutional spying, just that it became public.

Is America Descending Into A Totalitarian Police State

      California Police shoot dog running to owner's side, while they arrested him for taking their picture.
     Incidence of out of control violence, by police, when faced with citizens PHOTOGRAPHING THEM, is astounding. Law Enforcement seems to think that public record of their criminal actions is a crime and gives many of them freedom to commit even more violence.
     Government has become so large, expensive and uncontrollable, that its agents have become more like totalitarian regime, gestapo, than public servants. The accounts of brutality, violence, unquestionably unnecessary shootings and ridiculous  acts of cowardly, violence are escalating every day.

A video posted yesterday on YouTube shows the grisly shooting of a dog by a police officer in Hawthorne, California.
The 130-pound, 3-year-old Rottweiler named Max was shot to death after he escaped through a window in a parked car and ran over to his master, Leon Rosby, who was being arrested for filming the scene on his phone. 
The video (watch original on YouTube) shows Rosby, 52, walking his dog Sunday around 7 p.m. near a house with several police squad cars parked outside. 

      Agents of the Virginia Alcohol Beverage Commission nearly killed because they can't tell the difference between bottled water and beer?
     The number of reasons to call their story "questionable" never end.
     The real questions are unasked.
     What POSSIBLE  justification can be made to excuse pointing guns at young women, EVEN IF there were some credibility to the extremely creative story told by the Virginia officers? In an era when students are taught to fear guns, run from violence, wet themselves, rather than defend their person, when rape is threatened, it makes ZERO sense for law enforcement to use criminal levels of violence for what would have been a silly violation, IF IT HAD EVEN BEEN TRUE.
     Why does it take SEVEN agents of the state agency to check the bottled water and cookie dough purchase of a 20 year old, female, college student?
     What possible vital state interest was served?
     Does any thinking American believe the story told by these officers and their supervisors?
     What does this incident tell us about the police state policies of the Virginia Alcohol Beverages Commission?
Felony charges were dropped on Thursday against a 20-year-old University of Virginia student who says she panicked when undercover agents from the state's Alcohol Beverage Control division mistook her water purchase for beer.
According to Charlottesville (Va.) Daily Progress, the student, Elizabeth Daly, was walking to her car on April 11 at approximately 10:15 p.m. with a box of sparkling water, cookie dough and ice cream she had just bought from a local supermarket when the agents—six men and one woman, all in plainclothes—approached suspecting the box, a blue carton of LaCroix sparkling water, to be a 12-pack of beer. One jumped on the hood of her SUV; another pulled out a gun, Daly said, as her roommates seated inside looked on in horror.
"They were showing unidentifiable badges after they approached us, but we became frightened, as they were not in anything close to a uniform," Daly wrote in an account submitted to the court. "I couldn't put my windows down unless I started my car, and when I started my car they began yelling to not move the car, not to start the car. They began trying to break the windows. My roommates and I were ... terrified."
Daly's roommate in the front passenger seat told her to "go, go, go"—and that's what she did, apparently "grazing" two of the agents in the process.
The students called 911 as they left the parking lot, police said, and were pulled over by another agent driving a vehicle with lights and sirens, Charlottesville Commonwealth Attorney Dave Chapman told the paper.
Daly apologized when she realized who they were, Chapman said, but agents arrested Daly and charged her with two counts of assaulting a law enforcement officer and one count of eluding police—each carrying a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $2,500 in fines. She spent the night in Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.
"This has been an extremely trying experience," Daly wrote. "It is something to this day I cannot understand or believe has come to this point."
