July 4, 1776-The Day we ‘unfollowed’ King George—Conan O’Brien

Our Independence is being slowly stolen away from the American People…Few in government seem accountable any longer!

Even former president Jimmy Carter blasted the government for allowing "unprecedented violations of our rights to privacy through warrantless wiretapping and government mining of our electronic communications."

“• Even though the Democrat-controlled Senate rejected the President’s cap-and-trade plan, his Environmental Protection Agency classified carbon dioxide, the compound that sustains vegetative life, as a pollutant so that it could regulate it under the Clean Air Act.

“• After the Employee Free Choice Act—designed to bolster labor unions’ dwindling membership rolls—was defeated by Congress, the National Labor Relations Board announced a rule that would implement‘snap elections’ for union representation […] .

“• After an Internet regulation proposal failed to make it through Congress, the Federal Communications Commission announced that it would regulate the Web anyway, even despite a federal court’s ruling that it had no authority to do so.

“• Although Congress consistently has barred the Department of Education from getting involved in curriculum matters, the Administration has offered waivers for the No Child Left Behind law in exchange for states adopting national education standards, all without congressional authorization. […]

“• Since it objects to existing federal immigration laws, the Administration has decided to apply those laws selectively and actively prevent the state (like Arizona) from enforcing those laws themselves.

“• Rather than push Congress to repeal federal laws against marijuana use, the Department of Justice (DOJ) simply decided it would no longer enforce those laws.

“• DOJ also has announced that it would stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act or defending it from legal challenge rather than seeking legislative recourse.” [Matthew Spalding, The Foundry, June 22]

Free Prepaid Cards With No Fees

It is estimated that about 40 million Americans do not have a bank account. The reasons for this vary. For many, they are unable to qualify for a bank account because of past bounced checks. Bounce too many checks, and you’ll find yourself in the Chexsystems, which many banks use to evaluate potential new banking customers. For others it’s simply a distrust of the banking system or frustration with limited hours or the hoops one has to jump through to get service

Whatever the reason, the unbanked often turned to expensive check cashing stores to cash their weekly paychecks. Time Magazine wrote about this phenomenon, which costs consumers $10 billion a year in fees charged by check cashing stores, payday loan providers, and others. It’s not at all uncommon for consumers to spend 3% or more to get a paycheck cashed.  Get this list here:

The Nanny State Updates…

Death by Foreclosure

"But while BofA, JPMorgan Chase, Fannie and Freddie live on, Russia Today (RT) reports that for more and more underwater, foreclosed-upon homeowners, suicide is the only answer. Death by foreclosure is quietly going on around the country, reports the RT. And as more depressed people are evicted from their homes, the death toll will continue to rise.

"The foreclosure-suicide story is tragically underreported.

"While the press concentrates on looking for bad guys to blame the crisis on, people completely forget the human toll. In the Channel 8 Eyewitness News special "Desert Underwater," an officer for the constable's office that does the foreclosure evictions told Channel 8 that his worst day on the job was when the man he was evicting shot himself in front of him after the man was handed the eviction notice.

"Trisha Black, a Las Vegas attorney who specializes in helping those in foreclosure, counts 29 suicides just amongst her clients.

The Parting Thought – Sunshine Patriots-II

These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. >>Thomas Paine

Sunshine Patriots

Flag-waving has become so popular that the Chinese are actually working overtime to manufacture enough American flags to meet demand. Everywhere, citizens will wave the flag this holiday.  There's just one problem – in our rush to defend America, our most basic liberties are under attack as never before.

Back in 1778, Thomas Paine warned Americans about false patriots who wave the flag on sunny days, but fail to uphold liberty in stormy weather and as one pundit mentioned, “There aren’t enough real Americans today to hold up the flag.”

Too many Americans today are asleep at the wheel when it comes to what is happening to our country.  They simply cannot tear themselves away from reality TV and video games to be bothered.  They continually re-elect the same pirates into office, they blindly go along with whatever anti-Constitutional laws are passed just so long as the Big Game and another beer is available.

Our nation is being eviscerated by political hacks and the special interests which own them but few seem to be bothered.

Perhaps there may just be a defective subspecies of human being, homo servilus, who - much like a bee in a hive - is programmed to crave the collective and therefore accepts its corollary - coercion - as the natural and right order of things.

The only effective answer for greed in politics is an organized electorate. >The Poor Man

Many will hear the call, but few will answer.
