Must Reads For The Week 7/13/13

ARE WE MOVING TOWARD LIBERTY OR TYRANNY?  THE MIDDLE GROUND IS VERY CHAOTIC.

Fourth Of July: Up Against The State, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Power corrupts from the federal to the local level. These cops know they are violating this guys constitutional rights (on independence day no less), they admit as much on the video.

Third Amendment Violated? Police Invade Family’s Home For Use During Swat Call, Arrest Two For Obstruction When They Refuse, by Becket Adams, at theblaze.com. More abuse of power by local Government officials.

College Girls, Bottled Water, And The Emerging American Police State, by John Whitehead, at opednews.com. This type of enforcement activity will become more prominent as Government tries to micro manage society by passing more laws. You probably break some law everyday, and you don’t even know it.

A Lot Of People Are Interested In USDA Disaster Plans For Rabbits, by Bob McCarty, at bobmccarty.com. Can this really be true? Magicians are required to have disaster plans to evacuate their rabbits in case of a disaster. I think we need more regulations!

So Much For Peak Oil, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Just think how much we would produce domestically if the Administration would open federal lands and allow more off shore drilling? Would this create jobs? Would this drive the price of oil lower because of the increased supply?

Did Justice Department Support Anti-Zimmerman Protests After Martin Shooting? at foxnews.com. This is why I hate politics in general and  bureaucrats and politicians in particular. They always stick their noses in places that angels dare to tread, creating a situation that becomes a complete cluster foxtrot.

Respect is something that is earned, not given just because of someone’s status. Sen. Cruz is starting to earn my respect because, as you will see in the video, he doesn’t worry about the consequences of challenging¬† senior members of the Senate who think they are his betters. How dare this freshman Senator talk to these senior Senators like this, doesn’t he know his place? I love the fact that he seems not to care what happens when he hits the hornet’s nest with a seven iron.

Sen. Cruz asks some important questions about the constitution which is that pesky little document that gets in the way of what central planners want to do. The best part of this is toward the end when Sen. Feinstein says, “…sir, congress is in the business of making law, the Supreme Court interprets the law….”.
