Legalization of Marijuana- States Rights vs. Federal Control

Now, there may be some that disagree, but I happen to believe newly-appointed attorney Jeff Sessions is a decent and highly-qualified guy. However, there has been one issue so far where Session's implied position would increase centralized control at the expense of state's rights. Maybe he still resents the cavalier lifestyle portrayed by Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper in 1969's 'Easy Rider' and suffers from 'Hippie-Phobia'. Maybe a crunked-up Cheech Marin used to step on his glasses and kick his…

The Bankruptcy of The United States – James Traficant (1993)

Over the next month or so, we want to talk about just how the once prosperous United States has been methodically transformed into a quasi-socialist, hyper-Keynesian nation of unfathomable debt. This theme will include The Act of 1871, which some say turned the US into a corporation, the passage of the 14th amendment, which some say prohibits Congress from repudiating the federal debt in any way, and the Emergency Banking Act of March 9, 1933, which undermined the gold standard…

Are Teachers Scamming America??

We have all heard the admiration for teachers throughout our lives.  We've heard the wonderful impact they have on our communities by teaching are kids and providing well educated Americans for our future.  However, the reality is different and the teacher has now become the problem.  First and foremost they no longer teach as they did 20 or 30 years ago and in fact they follow lesson plans developed by people in the department of education.  What teachers have become…

Price of Oil? Not Supply/Demand. It’s Debt!

Alright, so to start I was alive during the Bush years where oil ran up in price.  Of course, all liberals out there constantly attacked the Presidnet for the rising price of oil because he was an "Oil Man" as they referred.  Of course, claims that Bush had anything secret to do with the rising price of oil was ludicrous at best and showed that liberals and anyone who blamed him directly was in fact wrong.  It is funny that…

Puppets of the United States of America

Call me naive, but the ‘Yes We Can’ chants and the overt messages of ‘Hope’ and ‘Change’ truly had me believing - really believing - that the United States of America had a chance to get back on track. Regardless of your party affiliation, the Obama campaign of 2008 was a sight to behold. For the first time in a long time the country was energized. As a people, we were involved, interested, and invested. Young America, many of whom…

Are Entitlements Taken Advantage Of?

OK, I hear all the arguements going on with the federal budget and you hear lots of talk about cutting entitlements. Of course the democrats think that is just a disgusting idea.  I just can't believe how many different entitlements there are, but also how much Americans get.  Before we go on, let's get a definition of entitlements from the liberal source itself, Wikipedia. An entitlement is a guarantee of access to benefits based on established rights or by legislation. A "right" is itself…

More Bullshit: Monsanto, Wall Street and the So-Called Regulators

Monsanto, Wall Street and the So-Called Regulators GM Watch (EU), September 24, 2008 Straight to the Source NOTE: The current U.S.-led financial crisis has implications that go way beyond Wall Street, financial speculators and investment banking. Marie Robin's film The World According to Monsanto contains chilling footage of George Bush Senior's visit to Monsanto's HQ, when he was U.S. Vice President. Bush tells the folk at Monsanto that if they run into any problems steering their new genetically engineered products…

Mark Levin – Blathering Neo Con-Artist

Mark Levin, so kind to share his constitutional misinterpretation on Facebook is another one of those so-called 'Conservatives' who has a self-proclaimed mission to 'defend the Constitution'. Of course, the version of the Constitution he champions needs to conform to certain Neo-Conservative tenets, one of which is 'never waste a chance to drop bombs on a predominantly Islamic middle-eastern nation even without a required Congressional declaration of war'. To argue his case, Levin attempts to deflect attention from his mutated…
