Harry Reid Says Obamacare Just A Step Toward Single Payer System, by Mark Tapscott, at The progressive elites are all about incrementally getting to their real goal of a Government run healthcare system. Many of us said this was their goal, and were told, “your crazy, that can’t happen here”.

IRS Needs AR-15’s For “Standoff Capabilities“. by Joshua Cook, at It’s not just the IRS. The Department of Education, The Social Security Administration, and The EPA are all stockpiling tactical weapons and ammunition. Most people have their head in the sand (or somewhere else), when they say, “IT CAN’T HAPPEN IN AMERICA”.

Warrantless Vaginal Searches Conducted By Texas Police, by Kristin Tate, at  “IT CAN’T HAPPEN IN AMERICA”.  Watch the second video and let me know if  the police woman put on a new pair of latex gloves to search the second women after she searched the first woman?

Government’s Secret Snooping Programs, Video FOX news. I saw this at Quote from Judge Napolitano, “…When and how will this end? Why is there no outrage? Just ten days ago they asked for our passwords, and they were probably turned over. Where does it go from here?”  Oh, by the way, IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE.

Senate Committee Now Investigating Bitcoin, at Virtual currencies like bitcoin allow individuals to exchange goods and services without the Government extracting their “fair share”. But the main reason Government doesn’t like bitcoin is because they don’t want to give up their monopoly  power of electronically printing counterfeit money, because it is how they fund Government expansion.

The Growing Police State And The Chilling Effect, at This is what they are hoping to accomplish by targeting people who don’t agree with them. Fear of Government repercussions keeps us from standing up against it.

More Americans Are Going Galt, by Daniel J Mitchell at I found this on People won’t abide by what they think are immoral laws. This is why prohibition didn’t work, this is why the War on Drugs isn’t working, this is why over half the cigarettes sold in NY State are smuggled. It should be no surprise that when the tax code becomes too onerous, people will avoid paying at any cost. The American Revolution was fought over onerous regulations by England. Liberty is still a part of our cultural DNA, and each person has his own level of tolerance before the marginal straw of regulation finally breaks the proverbial camels back. We got into this mess incrementally over a hundred years and we will probably get out of it incrementally (hopefully it takes less time).


Court Slaps Down Michael ‘Napoleon’ Bloomberg’s Soda Ban, at A bit of sanity rears its head.

US Judge Says Bloomberg’s “Stop And Frisk Policy Is Unconstitutional, at Another victory for liberty.

Marine Colonel To Town Council: “Your Building A Domestic Army; Are You Blind?”, at Individuals, like this marine, are taking a stand. It all starts at the local level.

Bono Is Now Preaching The Virtues Of Capitalism, by Mark J. Perry, at Maybe many are finally realizing that free market capitalism is what produces the goods and resources that they want to redistribute.

Oil And Gas Extraction Increased To A Record High In July, by Mark J. Perry, at The shale oil and gas boom (fracking), couldn’t be stopped by Government. It is happening on private lands, as Gov. has taken federal land off the table for extraction. The free market, as hampered as it is, always finds a way to thwart Gov. wishes.

Auston Kutcher On Opportunity, at He says “Opportunity looks a lot like hard work.” This is a great message for young people.

As Obamacare Deadline Looms, Doctors Are Opting For Cash Only Clinics, by Joshua Cook at A free market answer to the health care situation. If you get rid of third party pays, the price and cost will go down. Republicans follow these leaders and repeat after me, ” We’re going to replace Obamacare with a free market health care system.”
