  1. Sorry for your loss Yota. Freedom is not Free. Many have paid the ultimate price for you and me. May God Bless them all.
  2. Thanks Rod for the info. I'm glad to see I'm not crazy. Well, not as crazy anyway.

  4. The Last Temptation Thursday, December 6, 2012
  5. Whaaa! You had $1100 invested? I lost more than that in my 401k after the economy went in the tank. Because of DinarVets, we are all well informed to the potential of the Dinar, both good and bad. Adam has never once pumped buying any Dinar, but rather has cautioned numerous times to only invest what you can afford to loose. Good luck to you. But I bet that the $775 that you get back, will be spent and gone before the end of the year, with absolutely nothing to show for it.
  6. NATO, to include the US is sending Patriot missles to the Turkey/Syria border. You can bet that US troops will accompany them.
  7. Another related article: Steve Scalise Fails the First Test for Conservatives By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | December 5th, 2012 at 02:26 PM | 9 Several weeks ago, Congressman Steve Scalise (LA) was elected chairman of the Republican Study Committee. Many of us felt a deep-rooted disquiet that Scalise would be too closely aligned with leadership. We feared he wouldn’t properly defend conservatives and their policies. Well, his response to the recent leadership purge of conservatives from congressional committees has validated our fears. The fact that he was at the scene of the crime as a member of the Steering Committee makes his response even more troubling. On Monday, Congressman David Schweikert (AZ) was kicked off the Financial Services Committee, Congressman Justin Amash (MI) was kicked off the Budget Committee, and Congressman Tim Huelskamp (KS) was kicked off both the Budget Committee and the Agriculture Committee. They were unambiguously told that their conservative voting records and their dissent from leadership made them unqualified to sit on those committees. Outgoing RSC chair, Jim Jordan, delivered an appropriate response for the leader of the conservative caucus. “It’s unfortunate and unhealthy for our party that principled conservatives are being punished for voting their consciences and keeping the promises they made to their constituents,” he lamented. Incoming RSC chair, Steve Scalise, not only failed to call out leadership for their unprecedented purge, he denied the problem while concurrently driving a wedge between several conservative members. Here is what The Hill reports based on an interview with Scalise: Rep. Steve Scalise (La.), the incoming chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), told The Hill that the removal of GOP Reps. David Schweikert (Ariz.), Justin Amash (Mich.), Tim Huelskamp (Kan.) and Walter Jones (N.C.) from plum committee spots had nothing to do with ideology. Scalise pointed to the ascension of conservative Tea Party favorites to top-notch committees. “What they fail to mention is that [Rep.] Mick Mulvaney [R-S.C.] got a seat on Financial Services; [Rep.] Raul Labrador [R-Idaho] was fighting real hard to get elevated to Judiciary Committee so he can be more involved in the debate on immigration, and he got that post, so I don’t think anybody would question the conservative credentials of Mick or Raul,” Scalise said. […] “In the end you look at Mick and Raul getting elevated to positions that they wanted, so, while some went down, some went up. It was more an individual thing. It had nothing to do with conservatism. Otherwise, Mick and Raul wouldn’t be where they are,” Scalise explained. Huh? What does the non-sequitur of Mulvaney and Labrador have to do with those who were kicked off committees? Did Scalise even speak with those three members? They were blatantly kicked off their current committees because pf their conservative dissent. Even a willfully blind individual knows that. John Boehner even admits that they were punished because of their voting pattern. What voting pattern? They opposed Boehner’s fiscally reckless deal in 2011 that has led us to this so called “fiscal cliff” fight. “Some went down, some went up,” claims Scalise. What??!! Nobody is ever thrown off a committee for no good reason other than for a scandal. Even many RINOs who consistently voted against leadership from the left were kept on key committees for years. There are a number of them who are there to this day. In fact, the top three committees – E&C, Ways and Means, and Approps – are full of them. Joe Heck, who consistently votes against leadership bills, is a member of the Steering Committee, which made the committee assignment decisions in the first place, for goodness sakes! The fact that Mulvaney and Labrador, who are good conservatives, were appointed to their committees doesn’t negate the incontrovertible fact that members were unprecedentedly kicked off because of ideology. Moreover, it’s not like they were appointed to one of the 3 Super A committees. No conservative was elevated to those committees this time. Mulvaney was merely swapped out of Budget for Financial Services, two comparable committees. Labrador is an immigration attorney and an expert in the field. We are supposed to cheer the fact that they filled a number of vacancies with a man who should have always been there? Here are some more points to consider: 1.Due to election defeats and retirements, there are a number of vacancies on the committees. There are enough conservatives in the House that leadership is forced to put some of them at least on ‘middle ground’ committees. They can’t relegate every last one of them to Admin, Science, and Veterans Affairs. 1.The purge of Schweikert and Huelskamp are even more egregious then it appears. Schweikert is to Financial Services what Paul Ryan is to budget. He managed $3 billion in assets in Maricopa County and is the foremost authority on GSEs in the House. He was a workhorse on the committee. Additionally, his dissent was on issues pertaining to budget, not on his committee assignments. Furthermore, there were 7 vacancies on the committee. This was so blatant and so punitive that there’s no way Scalise could miss it. Behind the scenes, House leaders pushed for Ben Quayle against Schweikert in the Arizona Republican Primary, but they could not beat him. 1.Tim Huelskamp is among the most qualified people to serve on the Ag committee. He’s a farmer. He lives in one of the most Ag districts in the country. He has a Ph.D. from American University in Political Science, and his dissertation was on Ag policy. He is one of the biggest experts in this field in the House. And KS-01 has had someone on the Ag committee for 151 years. This purge is no accident. “Some went down, some went up.” Indeed. Finally, there is a real disconcerting and inconvenient reality about this whole situation. In addition to being the incoming RSC chairman, Scalise is on the Steering Committee. He was in the room when the decisions were made. He was there at the scene of the crime. Did he vote for it? Against it? Did he speak out against these decisions? His statement to The Hill would indicate that he obviously did not speak out against the purge. In his mind, there was no purge. Therein lies the problem. http://www.redstate.com/2012/12/05/steve-scalise-fails-the-first-test-for-conservatives/
  8. 'Everyone in US under virtual surveillance' - NSA whistleblower Published: 04 December, 2012, 18:01 Edited: 05 December, 2012, 19:13 William Binney The FBI records the emails of nearly all US citizens, including members of congress, according to NSA whistleblower William Binney. In an interview with RT, he warned that the government can use this information against anyone. Binney, one of the best mathematicians and code breakers in the history of the National Security Agency, resigned in 2001. He claimed he no longer wanted to be associated with alleged violations of the Constitution, such as how the FBI engages in widespread and pervasive surveillance through powerful devices called 'Naris.' This year, Binney received the Callaway award, an annual prize that recognizes those who champion constitutional rights and American values at great risk to their personal or professional lives. RT: In light of the Petraeus/Allen scandal while the public is so focused on the details of their family drama, one may argue that the real scandal in this whole story is the power, the reach of the surveillance state. I mean if we take General Allen – thousands of his personal e-mails have been sifted through private correspondence. It’s not like any of those men was planning an attack on America. Does the scandal prove the notion that there is no such thing as privacy in a surveillance state? William Binney: Yes, that’s what I’ve been basically saying for quite some time, is that the FBI has access to the data collected, which is basically the emails of virtually everybody in the country. And the FBI has access to it. All the congressional members are on the surveillance too, no one is excluded. They are all included. So, yes, this can happen to anyone. If they become a target for whatever reason – they are targeted by the government, the government can go in, or the FBI, or other agencies of the government, they can go into their database, pull all that data collected on them over the years, and we analyze it all. So, we have to actively analyze everything they’ve done for the last 10 years at least. RT: And it’s not just about those, who could be planning, who could be a threat to national security, but also those, who could be just… WB: It’s everybody. The Naris device, if it takes in the entire line, so it takes in all the data. In fact they advertised they can process the lines at session rates, which means 10-gigabit lines. I forgot the name of the device (it’s not the Naris) – the other one does it at 10 gigabits. That’s why they're building Bluffdale [database facility], because they have to have more storage, because they can’t figure out what’s important, so they are just storing everything there. So, emails are going to be stored there in the future, but right now stored in different places around the country. But it is being collected – and the FBI has access to it. RT: You mean it’s being collected in bulk without even requesting providers? WB: Yes. RT: Then what about Google, you know, releasing this biannual transparency report and saying that the government’s demands for personal data is at an all-time high and for all of those requesting the US, Google says they complied with the government’s demands 90 percent of the time. But they are still saying that they are making the request, it’s not like it’s all being funneled into that storage. What do you say to that? WB: I would assume that it’s just simply another source for the same data they are already collecting. My line is in declarations in a court about the 18-T facility in San Francisco, that documented the NSA room inside that AST&T facility, where they had Naris devices to collect data off the fiber optic lines inside the United States. So, that’s kind of a powerful device, that would collect everything it was being sent. It could collect on the order over of 100 billion 1,000-character emails a day. One device. RT: You say they sift through billions of e-mails. I wonder how do they prioritize? How do they filter it? WB: I don’t think they are filtering it. They are just storing it. I think it’s just a matter of selecting when they want it. So, if they want to target you, they would take your attributes, go into that database and pull out all your data. RT: Were you on the target list? WB: Oh, sure! I believe I’ve been on it for quite a few years. So I keep telling them everything I think of them in my email. So that when they want to read it they’ll understand what I think of them. RT: Do you think we all should leave messages for the NSA mail box? WB: Sure! RT: You blew the whistle on the agency when George W. Bush was the president. With President Obama in office, in your opinion, has anything changed at the agency, in the surveillance program? In what direction is this administration moving? WB: The change is it’s getting worse. They are doing more. He is supporting the building of the Bluffdale facility, which is over two billion dollars they are spending on storage room for data. That means that they are collecting a lot more now and need more storage for it. That facility by my calculations that I submitted to the court for the Electronic Frontiers Foundation against NSA would hold on the order of 5 zettabytes of data. Just that current storage capacity is being advertised on the web that you can buy. And that’s not talking about what they have in the near future. RT: What are they going to do with all of that? Ok, they are storing something. Why should anybody be concerned? WB: If you ever get on the enemies list, like Petraeus did or… for whatever reason, than you can be drained into that surveillance. RT: Do you think they would… General Petraeus, who was idolized by the same administration? Or General Allen? WB: There are certainly some questions, that have to be asked, like why would they target it to begin with? What law were they breaking? RT: In case of General Petraeus one would argue that there could have been security breaches. Something like that. But with General Allen – I don’t quite understand, because when they were looking into his private emails to this woman. WB: That’s the whole point. I am not sure what the internal politics is… That’s part of the program. This government doesn’t want things in the public. It’s not a transparent government. Whatever the reason or the motivation was, I don’t really know, but I certainly think that there was something going on in the background that made them target those fellows. Otherwise why would they be doing it? There is no crime there. RT: It seems that the public is divided between those, who think that the government surveillance program violates their civil liberties, and those who say, 'I’ve nothing to hide. So, why should I care?' What do you say to those who think that it shouldnt concern them. WB: The problem is if they think they are not doing anything that’s wrong, they don’t get to define that. The central government does, the central government defines what is right and wrong and whether or not they target you. So, it’s not up to the individuals. Even if they think they aren't doing something wrong, if their position on something is against what the administration has, then they could easily become a target. RT: Tell me about the most outrageous thing that you came across during your work at the NSA. WB: The violations of the constitution and any number of laws that existed at the time. That was the part that I could not be associated with. That’s why I left. They were building social networks on who is communicating and with whom inside this country. So that the entire social network of everybody, of every US citizen was being compiled overtime. So, they are taking from one company alone roughly 320 million records a day. That’s probably accumulated probably close to 20 trillion over the years. The original program that we put together to handle this to be able to identify terrorists anywhere in the world and alert anyone that they were in jeopardy. We would have been able to do that by encrypting everybody’s communications except those who were targets. So, in essence you would protect their identities and the information about them until you could develop probable cause, and once you showed your probable cause, then you could do a decrypt and target them. And we could do that and isolate those people all alone. It wasn’t a problem at all. There was no difficulty in that. RT: It sounds very difficult and very complicated. Easier to take everything in and… WB: No. It’s easier to use the graphing techniques, if you will, for the relationships for the world to filter out data, so that you don’t have to handle all that data. And it doesn’t burden you with a lot more information to look at, than you really need to solve the problem. RT: Do you think that the agency doesn’t have the filters now? WB: No. RT: You have received the Callaway award for civic courage. Congratulations! On the website and in the press release it says: “It is awarded to those, who stand out for constitutional rights and American values at great risk to their personal or professional lives.” Under the code of spy ethics – I don’t know if there is such a thing – your former colleagues, they probably look upon you as a traitor. How do you look back at them? WB: That’s pretty easy. They are violating the foundation of this entire country. Why this entire government was formed? It’s founded with the Constitution and the rights were given to the people in the country under that Constitution. They are in violation of that. And under executive order 13526, section 1.7 – you can not classify information to just cover up a crime, which this is, and that was signed by President Obama. Also President Bush signed it earlier as an executive order, a very similar one. If any of this comes into Supreme Court and they rule it unconstitutional, then the entire house of cards of the government falls. RT: What are the chances of that? What are the odds? WB: The government is doing the best they can to try to keep it out of court. And, of course, we are trying to do the best we can to get into court. So, we decided it deserves a ruling from the Supreme Court. Ultimately the court is supposed to protect the Constitution. All these people in the government take an oath to defend the Constitution. And they are not living up to the oath of office. http://rt.com/usa/news/surveillance-spying-e-mail-citizens-178/
  9. More info on this subject: The Members Behind the Purge of Conservatives By: Daniel Horowitz (Diary) | December 4th, 2012 at 11:12 AM | 15 Yesterday, we noted that not only did House leadership select moderates to fill vacant spots on the top congressional committees, they made the unprecedented decision to banish conservatives already sitting on some important committees. All of the decisions related to committee assignments are decided by a Steering Committee. At present, the Steering Committee is comprised of 31 members, most of who are either members of leadership or pushed onto the committee by leadership. These are the men and women behind the decision to throw conservatives under the bus. It’s important to note that Boehner gave himself 5 votes and Cantor 2 votes on the committee, so there are actually a total of 36 votes on each committee assignment decision. Here is the list of the committee members: John Boehner Speaker Eric Cantor Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy Republican Whip Peter Roskam Chief Deputy Whip Cathy McMorris-Rodgers Republican Conference Chair James Lankford Policy Chair Lynn Jenkins Conference Vice-Chair Virginia Foxx Conference Secretary Greg Walden NRCC Chairman Tom Cole NRCC Chairman (former) Hal Rogers Chairman Appropriations Committee Fred Upton Chairman Energy & Commerce Committee Jeb Hensarling Chairman Financial Services Pete Sessions Rules Committee Dave Camp Chairman Ways & Means Committee Paul Ryan Chairman Budget Committee Lamar Smith Texas Representative Doc Hastings Region I Representative Tom Latham Region II Representative John Shimkus Region III Representative Mike Rogers Region IV Representative Bill Shuster Region V Representative Pat Tiberi Region VI Representative Steve Scalise Region VII Representative Lynn Westmoreland Region VIII Representative Bob Goodlatte Region IX Representative Ken Calvert Region X Representative Jeff Miller Region XI Representative Cynthia Lummis Small State Representative Joe Heck 112th Class Representative Richard Hudson 113th Class Representative As you can see, more than half the votes are already selected by leadership. As such, conservatives see no purpose in running for the 11-12 regional representative spots because they will inevitably be outnumbered. Also, in past years, when conservatives tried to run for regional rep slots, leadership shifted around the regions to preclude them from getting on the committee. It’s interesting to note that the representative from the class of 2010 is Joe Heck, one of the most liberal members. The representative for the incoming freshman class is…..Cantor’s altar boy, representative-elect Richard Hudson (NC-8). The other peculiar thing is that Steve Scalise is on the committee. In past years, leadership has refused to put the RSC chairman on the committee, even though he commands the largest caucus in the House. Yet this year, Scalise, the incoming chairman, made his way onto the committee. Folks, this is just the beginning, and these people need to hear from all of us. Please call these members and ask them how they feel about conservative Reps. Schweikert, Amash, and Huelskamp being thrown off their committees. Ask them if they were a part of the decision. Steve Scalise, as the incoming leader of conservatives, should be leading the charge on the committee against the purge. It would be interesting to get his take on yesterday’s developments. This is just the opening salvo in a long war. House leaders have made it clear that they will punish conservatives for standing by their election promises. All conservatives in the House need to band together on this because anyone could be next. Ultimately, there’s only one way to win this. We must overwhelm them with greater numbers in congressional primaries. http://www.redstate.com/2012/12/04/the-members-behind-the-purge-of-conservatives/
  10. House Speaker John Boehner and the failed political establishment are purging House Committees of fiscal conservatives. So far, Reps. Amash, Huelskamp, and Schweikert have been removed from their respective committees for refusing to vote in lock step with the Republicans on endless spending. These members have been some of the most reliable votes for economic freedom and the Constitution, and they are now being punished for their loyalty to their Oath of Office. Click here to call Boehner right now and tell him to restore these Members to their Committees. https://secure.freedomworks.org/site/Advocacy?alertId=563&pg=makeACall&autologin=true&JServSessionIdr004=q905ftm9x6.app305a These statesmen have been fighting tirelessly for us, and now we must fight for them. Rep. Tim Huelskamp (KS) – Removed from the House Budget Committee (96% FreedomWorks Lifetime Rating). Rep. Justin Amash (MI) – Removed from the House Budget Committee (100% FreedomWorks Lifetime Rating). Rep. David Schweikert (AZ) – Removed from the House Financial Services (96% FreedomWorks Lifetime Rating). It’s bad enough we have to fight the big-spending liberal Democrats. But with friends like Boehner, who needs liberals? Call Boehner Now! The Republican leadership is tired of principled fiscal conservatives fighting against their big-government agenda, and this is just the first shot. We need to send a message to Boehner that we will not allow our most valued Congressmen to be purged for upholding their commitment to economic freedom and the Constitution.

  11. Health Ariz. Woman’s Four-Month Long Runny Nose Turns Out to Be Leaking Brain Fluid! Posted on December 4, 2012 at 8:50am by Liz Klimas Liz Klimas An Arizona woman for months had a constantly running nose, which doctors told her initially was allergies. But although the issue was a sinus-related problem, it turns out the steady drip wasn’t nasal mucus at all — it was cerebral spinal fluid from her brain. University of Arizona Surgeons Perform Endoscopic Procedure for Woman Leaking Brain Fluid for Shorter Recovery Time Aundrea Aragon said she is grateful to still be around to take care of her children after she could have potentially received a lethal infection while she was leaking brain fluid. (Photo: University of Arizona) “I was scared to death and desperate,’’ said Aundrea Aragon, according to a press release from the University of Arizona. “I knew it could not be allergies. The fluid would come out like a puddle.’’ “I was walking around with toilet paper shoved up my nose and changing it every 10 minutes,’’ she continued. According to the university, which had a team of doctors who treated Aragon, the patient had two cracks in her sphenoid sinus, which were allowing the fluid to make its way out of her nose. Such cracks can be caused by cerebral pressure and recovery after repair of the damage is difficult. Fortunately, the surgeons instead were able to repair the cracks through the nose with no incisions on the head, which resulted in a shorter recovery period. Dr. Alexander Chiu, chief of the Division of Otolaryngology at the university, said that 95 to 99 percent of cases like this performed endoscopically are successful, compared to 60 percent performed through a craniotomy. Click here to find out more! As for the risk of leaking brain fluid, the press release stated that the body will naturally continue to make more, but the potential for infection is what could have had harmful side effects. “You are constantly making brain fluid,” Chiu said, according to ABC News. “It can be fatal when there is a connection between the cleanest part of the body, the brain, and the dirtiest part, the nose.” “If you are leaking brain fluid out your nose then you have the potential for catastrophic meningitis, the kind where bacteria crawls into your brain and 24 hours later you are essentially in a coma or dead,’’ said Dr. G. Michael Lemole, chief of the Division of Neurosurgery, according to the release. “That is what we worry about in these cases.” ABC News reported Chiu saying such leaks occur in 1 in 100,000 or 1 in 200,000 patients. He called it a “freak thing.” Aragon said she is grateful to the staff and happy she is still here to take care of her children.

  12. Crime See the New Photo of a Bloody George Zimmerman Released by His Defense Team Posted on December 3, 2012 at 3:31pm by Becket Adams Becket Adams The defense team for George Zimmerman on Monday released the following photo taken by a police officer on the night Florida teen Trayvon Martin was fatally shot: Bloody New Photo of George Zimmerman Released | Trayvon Martin “This is a photo of George Zimmerman taken by a police officer on the night of February 26, 2012. A black and white photocopy of this image was provided by the State in the first Discovery. This high-resolution digital file was finally provided to the defense on October 29, 2012,” the defense team posted to its website. “This image was disclosed in the State’s 9th Supplemental Discovery. In accordance with the updates to our media policy that we published on November 13, we will be making all public documents related to the case available on our website, including the rest of the State’s 9th Supplemental Discovery as soon as we are sure it has been properly redacted according to the Court’s stipulations on protecting information regarding specific witnesses,” the post adds. It remains to be seen if the photo will help Zimmerman’s defense, which maintains he was defending himself during a struggle with Martin that ultimately led to Zimmerman shooting Martin. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/see-the-new-photo-of-a-bloody-george-zimmerman-released-by-his-defense-team/

  15. December 3, 2012 by Tim Brown Couple Faces Fines Of $97K For Using Own Driveway Howard and Lisa Gray have been involved in a six year dispute with Clearcreek Township in Warren County, Ohio over the use of a driveway that they obtained permission from the Clearcreek TWP official. Now, because of complaints of neighbors the couple faces nearly $100,000 in fines and contempt of court charges. The Grays on storage and landscaping businesses and their land extends across two counties. They were using their residential driveway in Warren County to get to buildings on the Montgomery County portion of their land. The buildings house their storage and landscaping businesses. After obtaining permission to use their own driveway on their own land from the bureaucracy of Clearcreek TWP, neighbors began complaining to the TWP and they ordered the couple to stop using their driveway to access their business. Attorney for the Clearcreek TWP in a court filing last Monday said, “We realize that, several years ago, (the Grays) were given bad advice. That in no way excuses their current behavior, which is to continuously ignore and, in fact, thumb their noses at the court’s orders.” Wait, what? Bad advice? First it’s their land. It’s their driveway. They shouldn’t have had to “obtain permission” from any government bureaucracy to use their land to drive across. Second, when they did approach the almighty Clearcreek TWP, they didn’t “advise” them, they gave them permission, which I find silly that anyone has to obtain permission to drive across their own land. The Middletown Journal reports, The Grays live at 2248 Pennyroyal Road, west of Ohio 741 on the extreme northern edge of Warren County in Clearcreek Twp., a traditionally rural community where home-based businesses are common and generally accepted. Their commercial land in Montgomery County’s Miami Twp. is just inside a special commercial zone established in anticipation of development around the new Interstate 75 interchange at Austin Boulevard. Homes, some on multi-acre lots, surround the Grays’ land on the east, south and west. Commercial properties and a church border the Grays’ land to the north. In 2004, the Grays say they invested about $300,000 in the garages and storage buildings on about three acres of their land in Montgomery County after receiving assurance from Clearcreek Twp. Planning and Zoning Director Jeff Palmer that access would be permitted via the long driveway leading off Pennyroyal Road to their home. In 2006, after complaints from neighbors about noise, dirt and traffic, the township notified the Grays they would have to quit using the driveway to get to their commercial buildings. The Grays had added a landscaping business, worsening traffic and noise problems, according to the township. So let’s get this straight. They had to pay a tax, the government calls it a “permit” to construct their driveway. This was authorized, not advised, by the same people that now was to keep them from using what they paid for. Things were fine for two years, until neighbors began to complain and we come to find out that the township’s population was exploding at this time, doubling in size to nearly 40,000 residents. In 2009 is when the TWP filed a lawsuit in Warren County asking the court to deny the Grays access to their land in Montgomery County via their driveway. According to the TWP the business that the Grays are involved in is not a home business because the equipment they use is stored outside the home. Attorney Jill Mead, representing the TWP, said, “The township’s policy is that legitimate home occupations are acceptable. If a commercial enterprise is being run on a residential property and does not qualify as a home occupation, it is unacceptable. Generally speaking, the township responds to complaints.” The Grays were also given a court order to build a fence and entry system around the buildings, along with helping the TWP move out about 50 of the storage tenants. They were also told to take down the sign for their storage buildings along and they were not compensated for the loss of the use of their driveway. The Grays did comply with the order and paid for their own fence instead of paying the township to hire a contractor to build the fence. They also replace their storage sign with one that reads, “Is this America? Clearcreek Twp. and their courts have closed our family business after they approved it six years ago. Our American Dream has been turned into an American Red Tape Nightmare.” The Gray’s attorney, Andrew George, says that the Grays deserve compensation. “All of this stems from a government mistake. It’s up to the government to fix that,” George said. While the parties involved have worked out an agreement to close the driveway at the Montgomery County line, Gray is very unhappy, as any of us would be. He said, “I’ve been here since 2004. They’re actually taking my land.” The driveway closing has not taken place yet. Now the Grays are facing contempt of court charges and fines that could be as much as $97,000. Talk about a government shake down! Should they ultimately comply, they will not face the charges or the fines, but will have to pay the costs of the fence and at least $7,500 in attorney’s fees, which bring it to a total of $13,000. Welcome to small town Amerika comrades. Read more: http://freedomoutpost.com/2012/12/couple-faces-fines-of-97k-for-using-own-driveway/#ixzz2E5A7ffzA
  16. Politics Firefighter fired for installing Barack Obama toilet paper in firehouse bathroom 12:04 AM 12/03/2012 A Florida firefighter is out of a job after putting toilet paper with President Barack Obama’s face in his fire department’s bathroom. Clint Pierce, who admitted placing the Obama toilet paper in the restroom as a “gag,” had until 5:00 p.m. Friday to turn in his badge after the city of Pompano Beach, Fla. determined his joke was a disrespectful repeat offense, according to a report from the Sun Sentinel. The Oct. 19 incident marked the third time Pierce brought political props onto city property, after he was told to stop. “It was clearly a case of insubordination,” city spokeswoman Sandra King said Friday, according to the paper. “He had a similar situation of posting political messages on city property and he was given a free pass at that time and told to cease and desist and he did it again and really exacerbated the situation.” Fire Chief Harry L. Small determined that Pierce’s actions showed “tasteless and disrespectful treatment” of President Obama and “caused significant divisiveness within the department and community.” And according to activists who came to a City Commission meeting Tuesday, his actions were racist and offensive, the Sun Sentinel reported. Small concluded in a Nov. 20 memo, however, that he “found no evidence to indicate that Pierce’s actions were racially motivated, but rather they were politically motivated.” Toilet paper with former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s face, Secretary of State Hillarious Clinton’s face, and and others are readily available online. Pierce, a firefighter since 1993, reportedly apologized, but to no avail. “Your apology for your actions is appreciated, but does little to undo the widespread damage to the reputation of the city and the fire department organization,” Small responded.

Week of December 03, 2012 Stars and Stripes reports that a new study suggests that MDMA -- the pure form of the drug ecstasy -- may be effective in easing the most treatment-resistant post-traumatic stress, when coupled with psychotherapy. The long-term follow-up study by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies appears to add credence to research published by the California non-profit organization two years ago that found 83 percent of participants receiving MDMA-assisted psychotherapy no longer qualified for a PTSD diagnosis two months after treatment. An abstract of the study is available on the Journal of Psychopharmacology website. link Find more PTSD Resources on Military.com. http://www.military.com/military-report/using-ecstasy-to-treat-ptsd?ESRC=miltrep.nl
  19. Why Are NY Teachers Getting Taxpayer-Funded Cosmetic Surgery? A teacher’s union in a Buffalo, New York is fighting to preserve a decades-old health care plan that covers cosmetic surgery… and taxpayers are footing the bill. A new report shows that they spent nearly $3 million of taxpayer dollars on procedures like hair removal and liposuction. Ralph Hernandez, vice president of the Buffalo school board, joined America Live to give an update on the negotiations. He said there are reassurances from the leadership of the unions that they would drop the issue before the next collective bargaining agreement. But in a school district where only half of the kids are graduating, Megyn asked why this wasn’t re-negotiated before. He said that it’s been part of the Buffalo public school system for about 20 years, though he would like to see that money go toward the classroom. In addition, Megyn pointed out that the school board went to the teachers with the news that 100 of them would have to be laid off. If the teachers gave up the health care plan with cosmetic procedures, they would not have to be let go, but they refused. Hernandez reiterated that he has the commitment from the unions that this plan wouldn’t be on the table at the next negotiation. http://foxnewsinsider.com/2012/11/30/why-are-ny-teachers-getting-taxpayer-funded-cosmetic-surgery/
