The Marxist mutt Plans for Federal Internet "Identity Ecosystem"
If the Marxist mutt’s plans for the Internet are implemented by the
federal government, Internet anonymity may soon be a thing of the past.
The whole project has been given the typically massaged moniker of
“National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” (NSTIC). The
development of the strategy is not a sudden, recent development. (In
fact, a June 2010 draft of the proposed strategy is available here from
the Department of Homeland Security.) But comments last week by Commerce
Secretary Gary Locke appear to indicate that the administration may be
preparing to implement NSTIC.
We've been 'socialist' for a long time...
Illinois Lawmakers Pass 66 Percent Income Tax Increase
Illinois lawmakers approved a 66 percent increase in the state income tax in the early morning hours of January 12, part of a dramatic effort to address the state’s critical budget crisis. The Democrat-controlled legislature passed the increase at the tail end of a lame duck session, with some lawmakers who supported the measure scheduled to leave office hours later when a new General Assembly was sworn in.
The bill (SB 2505) passed in the House by a 60 to 57 vote late January 11, with the state senate approving the measure by a razor-thin 30 to 29 margin in the early morning hours of January 12th. Democratic Governor Pat Quinn had pushed the bill as a temporary fix to staunch a budget deficit that could hit $15 billion this year. His office said that the increase, which will raise the personal income tax rate from three percent to five percent while hiking the corporate tax rate from 4.8 percent to seven percent, will generate some $6.8 billion per year for the state’s coffers.
--- Absolutely incredible. There is no limit to "Liberal"(commie)
insanity except for the limits we force upon them.
Neighboring states gleeful over Ill. tax increase
While many states consider boosting their economies with tax cuts,
Illinois officials are betting on the opposite tactic: dramatically
raising taxes to resolve a budget crisis that threatened to cripple
Neighboring states gleefully plotted Wednesday to take advantage of what they consider a major economic blunder and lure business away from Illinois.
"It's like living next door to `The Simpsons' — you know, the dysfunctional family down the block," Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels said in an interview on Chicago's WLS-AM.
--- Maybe Bart should run for Mayor of Chicago. His competition isn't

Soros advises Obama to use forceful measures to override the will of the people
Apparently, George Soros and his Center are upset that the American
people placed a roadblock in their plans when we rose up and painted the
nation red. The Center now is providing a blueprint of ways Barack Obama
can do an end run around the people’s will by resorting to methods that
will strike many of us as being improper-to say the least. Relying on
executive orders, interpretation of regulations, rule -making and the
like they are collectively a recipe for even more power being assumed by
Fight for the Filibuster
“Filibuster” is not a dirty word.
This may seem an obvious point. But it’s worth noting, given the campaign now underway on Capitol Hill to severely curtail a practice designed to ensure that legislation goes through a process of calm, reasoned debate.
In the Founders’ vision, the Senate was the “cooling saucer” that would temper legislation developed in the high-temperature House of Representatives. The filibuster grew out of this function. The United States, after all, is a constitutional republic, not a direct democracy. The majority can’t simply steamroll the minority. The minority gets a voice, too, in shaping legislation. And in the Senate, that voice is expressed at times through the filibuster.
...government is just another scam, no matter where one lives.
Americans Arm Themselves in Wake of Tucson Shootings
Despite — or perhaps because of — politicians’ and pundits’ handwringing about the dangers of guns in the hands of ordinary citizens in the wake of the January 8 shootings in Tucson, Arizona, Americans seem far from fearful about the prospect of owning firearms. In fact, they are positively giddy about buying their own guns. Bloomberg News reports that, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation data, handgun sales across the country on January 10 were up 5 percent year-over-year, with Arizona experiencing a 60 percent increase. In addition, sales rose 65 percent in Ohio, 38 percent in Illinois, 33 percent in New York, and 16 percent in California.
--- Great, just when ammo was getting affordable again.
Man Injured During Georgetown Robbery
A clerk was injured during a violent gas station robbery in Georgetown Monday evening.
Police say a man wearing a camouflage hunting mask approached a clerk the Swifty gas station on Paris Pike and asked for cigarettes. When the clerk turned to unlock the case, the suspect hit him over the head with a tire iron. The suspect demanded money and escaped on foot with some cash. He was last seen running toward the back of a nearby Gulf gas station.
--- Time to ban those fully automatic tire irons. They give
bad guys bad ideas. We all know how dangerous ideas can be.
Some things you might need to know...
Some surplus is fine. Some of it is junk. Think 'lowest

Rand Paul vs. David Hawpe
As most focus on Rand Paul's swearing in as Kentucky's new
junior senator in the new Congress [like Freeman in Ky w/ lots of video], back
here in the Bluegrass, Sen. Paul is still fighting one of his longest standing
public battles against the Courier-Journal and its former editorial page
director, David Hawpe.
Hawpe, who performed his job at the C-J with a rooster -- the symbol of the Kentucky Democratic Party -- on his desk, has only sharpened his partisan stick since officially departing the fading giant at 6th and Broadway.
Normally, liberals and Democrats are against excessive spending on military and defense... but when Rand Paul advocates for reductions in military spending, it turns a partisan like Hawpe into a neo-con taking his cues from Dick Cheney.
--- Hawpe is just another despicable low-life commie
newswhore. Keep it in mind for future events.
Raw milk farmer wins victory against county over 'illegal' sales
A small victory has been won on the raw milk battle front.
Greene County, Mo., Circuit Judge Daniel Imhoff recently threw out a lawsuit
against Armand Bechard, a farmer who sells raw milk to customers in the
Springfield area. According to the judge, Bechard was not the proper subject of
the lawsuit, and the statute of limitations prevents any further action in the
case, so Bechard is free to resume business as usual.
Praise For Lee And Jackson
Thankfully, freedom’s heartbeat is still felt among at least a few states. State sovereignty resolutions (proposed in over 30 states), Firearms Freedom acts (passed in 2 states–Montana and Tennessee–and being proposed in at least 12 other states), and official letters (Montana), statements (Texas Governor Rick Perry), and resolutions (Georgia and Montana) threatening secession have already taken place.
--- We need to take our entire country and government back. Well maybe we
could wall off Massachusetts and see how long it takes those commies to starve
Leahy Is Right: Vermont Is Different
There are other important historical facts about the Green
Mountain State. Vermont considered itself an independent nation for some time.
When the U.S. Constitution was adopted, Vermont was not a state; it was disputed
land between New York and New Hampshire. (Interestingly, Maine too was not a
state at that time, but rather a part of Massachusetts — a bit of trivia often
lost on American students today.) Vermont considered itself an independent
republic for 14 years before acceding to join the United States — after
respectfully disagreeing with its neighbors that it was part of another state,
and showing a willingness to support that opinion with its armed militia. When
Vermont then joined the Union — slavery having already been banned — it entered
as a completely free state.
...the republicrats had the courage to do what will be
required to fix this mess if it can be fixed.
Illegals Are Breaking the Bank
The Harris County Hospital District, the public hospital system in Houston,
Texas, found that 60 percent of births over the last four years were by women
living here illegally. It’s estimated, in Texas alone, there are 1.5 million
illegal immigrants, to which 60,000 babies are born to their households
annually. In fact, a Pew Hispanic Center study revealed that 8 percent of U.S.
babies a year are born to mothers here illegally.
34,612 Deaths in Mexico’s Drug War in 4 Years, Mexican President Says
A total of 34,612 people have died in drug-related killings
in Mexico in the four years since Mexican President Felipe Calderon declared an
offensive against drug cartels, officials said Wednesday.
The killings reached their highest level in 2010, jumping by almost 60 percent to 15,273 deaths from 9,616 the previous year.

Oil panel comes up dry on offshore drilling
With gasoline prices at unusually high levels for this time of year, a report from a presidential commission Tuesday did little to break the political deadlock over offshore drilling, prompting some observers to warn that the United States is headed toward another gas-price crunch this summer.

U.S.-Chinese currency link creates spiral in global food costs
The trend threatens to pick up speed and become an obstacle
for the global economy this year as growth in the United States accelerates to
as high as 4 percent and contributes to burgeoning demand for basic goods
obtained in global markets.
The chain reaction behind the phenomenon is reminiscent of the commodity-price spiral that occurred in 2008, which led to record-high prices for oil, corn, wheat, copper, iron and other necessities. China, in particular, is playing a key role in translating the Federal Reserve's loose-money policies — aimed at reviving the U.S. economy — into global commodity inflation through its policy of linking its currency to the U.S. dollar. That makes for one more reason the currency issue is sure to be raised as a bone of contention when Chinese President Hu Jintao visits Washington next week.
--- How much longer until we're subsisting as our
grandparents did? When we return to dirt roads and horse drawn farm implements
maybe the eco-commies will be happy.
Well, at least dog food may remain affordable for a

Quote for the times
"Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied." -- Otto von Bismarck
"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should
not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all
experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while
evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms
to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to
reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their
duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their
future security." -
The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America,
Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776
(To the Founders, 'state' meant independent sovereign nation state,
that was voluntarily entering into the union and could theoretically un-volunteer later.)
