Must Read “Leftovers”

Federal Judge: Drinking Tea , Shopping At A Gardening Store Is Probable Cause For A SWAT Raid, by Radley Balko, at washingtonpost.com. Hard to believe that a judge said that at no point did the police violate the constitutional rights of the people whose house was raided because of a false positive test. “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

St. Louis Taxpayers Aren’t Finished Paying For The Stadium The Rams Abandoned, by Travis Waldron, at huffingtonpost.com. City and State taxpayers still owe $100 million on the bonds used to finance the building of the stadium. Fool me once……..

Well-Armed Activists Openly Defy Texas Law To Feed The Homeless, at thedailysheeple.com. Dallas law says you can’t feed a lot of people unless you jump through the hoops they’ve placed in your way. The activists decided not to comply with the law.

Solar City And The Silver Spoon, by Marita Noon, at cfact.org. Can you blame Solar City from chasing after government funding (taxpayer dollars). There will always be a line of people trying to get their hands on taxpayer dollars. This is just another green energy scam.

Hillary Clinton’s False Hopes, by Andrew Napolitano, at reason.com. Excerpt from the article: “Clinton’s job as secretary of state was to keep secrets. Instead, she exposed them to friend and doe. The exposure of state secrets, either intentionally or negligently, constitutes the crime of espionage.” My brother had a security clearance when he worked for the Air Force. He said if he had done what she did, he would still be in jail.

How Congress Is Giving Up Its Power, by Brittany Hunter, at generationopportunity.org. Congress has given up its law making power to unelected bureaucrats in federal agencies. From the article: “…. in the appendix of the Administrative Conference of the US, there are 115 agencies listed with a disclaimer saying “There is no authoritative list of government agencies.” The federal government has grown so large that no one can even keep track of it anymore.” Can’t the left and right agree that the federal government has reached a point that it is too big?

Wait A Minute – Who’s Fascist, by Charles Hugh Smith, at oftwominds.com. Excerpt from the article: “The Carrot dangled by the Fascist state is always the same: there is a free lunch for everyone who cedes control over their lives to the state. For corporations, the free lunch is a quasi – monopoly; for debt serfs, new programs that erase their debts (i.e. transfer them to others), and for everyone, more entitlements, up to the Nirvana of the fascist state, Guaranteed Minimum Income for all.

Our Forgotten Statesman, by Walter E. Williams, at jewishworldreview.com. James Madison was called the father of the constitution. Excerpt from the article: “During the Constitutional Convention, a proposal was made that would have allowed the federal government to suppress a seceding state. Madison rejected it….. “A Union of the states containing such an ingredient (would seem) to provide for its own destruction. The use of force against a state would look more like a declaration of war than an infliction of punishment and would probably be considered by the party attacked as a dissolution of all previous compacts by which it might be bound.” States have a right to secede.
