Must Reads For The Week 6/21/14
Video: Turning SWAT Teams Into Death Squads, at libertypenblog.blogspot.com, by John W. Whitehead. The Fourth Amendment states, ‘The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause….’ Law enforcement in the U.S. isn’t constrained by the Fourth Amendment anymore.
The US Government Doesn’t Want You To Know How The Cops Are Tracking You, by Trevor Timm, at the gardian.com. I saw this at libertypenblog.blogspot.com. Another example of Government abusing our Fourth Amendment rights.
US Captures The Benghazi Killings Mastermind (And Scapegoat), at zerohedge.com. Everything this administration does is for purely political reasons. We can’t possibly believe anything else. Excerpt from the article, “What is perhaps more curious is why it took Obama nearly two years to find a person who was openly living in Libya after the attacks, and in fact gave interviews several interviews with TIME magazine in 2012, but with AP in October 2013:” When this guy goes to trial, he can have President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton, and Ambassador Rice testify that what happened in Benghazi was a spontaneous attack because of an anti Islamic video shown on the internet. No one could possibly challenge the veracity of these three witnesses.
U.S. Government Trying To Force Washington Redskins To Change Name, by Rachel Blevins, at benswann.com. Two things going here. 1) Government officials exercising force over peoples property rights. 2) Government officials enforcing something that is completely meaningless to the well being of American Indians, but is very meaningful to the ego of the Government officials. I have one question for these Government officials. How did the creation of Indian Reservations, by Government officials, work out for the American Indians who live on them? Read here.
Marc Faber Explains The Fed’s Dilemma In 15 Words, at zerohedge.com. Faber’s words, “The more they print, the more inequality there is, the weaker the economy will become.” The Fed is creating the very problem it is trying to cure with its double edge sword of electronically printing counterfeit money and zero interest rates.
Bobby Jindal Pulls Lousiana Out Of Common Core, by Robby Soave, at reason.com. The more that is known about Common Core, the more it is being rejected. Virginia, Texas, Minnesota, and Nebraska never adopted Common Core. Louisiana just pulled out, just as Indiana, Oklahoma, and South Carolina, recently pulled out. North Carolina and Missouri look like they are next. Liberty minded people are winning on this issue, because they are fighting at the State level.
Right To Work States Now Dominate U.S. Automobile Manufacturing, by Mark J. Perry, at aei-ideas.org. Business seeks lower costs, and labor is usually one of their biggest. When labor is free from Union coercion, it chooses against unions. This benefits labor,business, and consumer.
Big Labor (And Socialists) Hate Tipping, at economicpolicyjournal.com. First of all, I thought big labor is a bunch of socialists. Here is a quote about tipping from the minimum wage queen, Seattle City Councilmember Socialist Kashama Sawant; “We don’t want any worker to be beholden to the mood of the customer on any given day.” This is the difference between free markets and central planning. The consumer rules in a free market, and the planners rule in a socialist system. Seattle you are getting exactly what you deserve by electing this jewel into office.
Flight Attendant Makes Best Pre-Flight Speech Ever, at economicpolicyjournal.com. This is good.
I saw these cartoons at theburning platform.com.
