This is a 30 minute crash course detailing how your Constitutional Rights have been trampled when the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, or NDAA for short, was passed. Thank you to Adam Adask for blogging this earlier. Don’t forget, Attorney General Eric Holder, Sen. Harry Reid, Sen. Lindsey Graham, and Sen. John McCain have agreed that this bill DOES give the POTUS the “legal basis” necessary to kill US Citizens abroad.

SOURCE: ASSOCIATED PRESS: CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY HAS FILED SUIT AGAINST EPA: SUIT SEEKS TO FORCE EPA TO PREVENT LEAD POISNING OF WILDLIFE FROM SPENT AMMUNITION AND LOST FISHING TACKLE
You may remember Gaspee Gazette covered this story previously when back in August the EPA denied a petition from The Center for Biological Diversity, and other environmental groups, for the EPA to institute a nationwide ban on lead based ammunition. You can read that post here: http://wp.me/p11aYW-4x. The EPA denied the ammunition part of the petition, saying it didn’t have authority to do so under the Toxic Substances Control Act.
I have heard Tera Servatious on WBT 1110 say before that we need to be praying for the arteries of Supreme Court Justices: Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito everyday. Because the ability to purchase or manufacture lead ammunition will soon be resting on these 4 men’s shoulders.
Mexican citizens will soon be eligible to apply for a “trusted traveler” status that will allow them to bypass some elements of airport security when they fly into the United States —
Shout out to vehoae and her Still Standing blog for posting about this Fox News story.
While US citizen’s are being scanned into Homeland Security porno movies, or fondled, non-citizens get “zeer paperz” and go right through!
This vote is scheduled for tomorrow night!
The Fed is not worried though because the Producer Price Index includes items whose prices are far too volatile: items like food and energy. Relax. You can trust the feds.
That makes me happy. Too bad our attorney general Roy Spencer refused to file a suit.
Will there be a statewide outcry for Tea Parties in North Carolina this April? There should be because at this point nothing has changed!
Hat Tip to Mike Church for this idea for a post.
NC’s current debt/income ratio is roughly 85%!
Let’s put that in perspective. Historically, in order to get a 30-yr mortgage on your home your debt/income ratio had to be around 25%. Even today, with the loose lending standards that led to the housing bubble, to qualify for an FHA government backed mortgage the HIGH end debt/income ratio is 41%. And the massive amount of sub-prime mortgage defaults are bringing those ratios back closer to historical levels.
As of 12/13/2010 NC’s revenue/spending ratio is
That means North Carolina is spending 33% more than it takes in from you and me in taxes.
Now is not the time for grass root groups to sit back. We must rally together and say collectively “we have not yet begun to fight!”
And Boehner, the soon to be Speaker of the House, goes on 60 minutes and announces a 5% cut? Really? And maybe if they would have had enough dixie cups they could have bailed out the Titanic. Mr. Speaker-Elect this IS NOT the answer we are looking for.
Y0u must start in your town. I am going to drop a challenge to any and all takers. Start asking questions in your town. Find out as best as you can what your debt/spending, and debt/income ratio is in your town or city. We must demand fiscal responsibility from our local, state, and national leaders! But it starts in your town.
BREAKING: Ron Paul to Chair House Sub-Committee On Domestic Monetary Policy – Paul Calls It Official!
Bernanke Beware! Impeach him Mr Paul!
Not that it will do any good, but call your Senators to tell them to Vote “NO” on Cloture for H.R. 3082 and Oppose the “FDA Food Safety Modernization Act” (Division D of H.R. 3082)
The lame ducks are moving fast in the House.
From Farm-To-Consumer Legal Defense Fund:
“By a 212-206 vote on December 8, the House passed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (formerly S.510) as an amendment to H.R. 3082 (the “Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011″ to fund the government through September 2011). House Democrats attached what was S.510 (as passed by the Senate on November 30) to H.R. 3082 because they were worried about Republican opposition to it as a stand alone bill.”
Burr a Republican RINO from NC was a cosponsor of s510, and is in so deep with big agribusiness he is not likely to care about what the majority of his constituents think.
Nancy Piscatello with NY Healthy Food Advisor writes:
“Small farmers, like raw milk dairies, will be the victims. The language that was changed in the bill, from “credible evidence or information indicating” to “reason to believe“, could have significant impact for those farmers that the FDA “believes” are producing any food they do not deem “safe”. With the record of FDA armed raids on raw milk farms, this bill leaves little to the imagination on where things may progress. Small farms, food co ops, farmers markets, and supplement companies are all in line for harassment, or being put out of business, due to “belief” and control.”
In a nutshell this bill will put the control of our countries food supply into the hands of big agri-business, and therefore, the government.
