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.

Must Reads For The Week 9/5/15

The pen is mightier than the sword...

The University Of Tennessee’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion want students to use gender-neutral pronouns. I”m going to put some excerpts from the University of Tennessee’s web site, otherwise you will think I’m making this up. “A few of the common singular gender-neutral pronouns are they, them, their (used as singular), ze, hir, hirs, and xe, xem, or xyr” (My spell check has no idea what to do with these). “These may sound a little funny at first, but only because they are new. The he and she pronouns would sound strange too if we had been taught ze when growing up.” Thats the whole point, we weren’t taught ze, hir, ze, or xem when we were growing up. But wait there’s more. “To learn more about gender identity, gender-neutral pronouns and transgendered topics, consider signing up for a Safe Zone workshop at safezone.utk.edu.” I bet safezone.utk.edu crashed with all of the people rushing to sign up.

I original linked to the University of Tennessee’s web site (here). It was taken down and replaced by this, Clarification On Gender-Neutral Pronouns Article (here).

HT carpediemblog,  and for the video below.

Colin Quinn Nails PC Culture, at thecollegefix.com.

This is funny because it is so absurdly true. When I went to the bank today a female teller and a black teller said ‘can I help you’ at the same time. This is what went through my mind, “I’m going to be a sexist or a racist after this choice”. How have we let political correctness get this far?

Exposed The New American Way Of Life, at zerohedge.com. Government goodies create an incentive to not get married. And maybe even to get divorced.

 

Via On Demand Transit, ridewithvia.com. When Uber starts to get competition from other ride sharing businesses, consumers benefit and the taxi cartel looses.

Obama Administration Pays $400,000 For Harassing ICE Attorney Trying To Enforce Immigration Law, at newsworks.org. Patricia Vroom a top attorney for ICE was bullied and harassed by officials in Washington because she raised concerns about the Obama administration’s prosecutorial discretion related to immigration law. Prosecutorial discretion means not enforcing the law. She sued and the administration paid her ($400 thousand of our tax dollars)  to end the law suit.

Orwellian Justice Upholds NSA Spying On Americans, at globalresearch.ca. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a warrant is not needed for the NSA to spy on people. Have the judges on the D.C Circuit Court read the Fourth and Fifth amendments to the constitution?

The Feds Need A Warrant To Spy With Stingrays From Now On, at wired.com. Why did the Justice Department put hand cuffs on its power? There must be a reason I can’t see because government never gives up power.

The N.S.P.H.H.B.O.P., The Market, and the “Beepocalypse“, at mises.org. The market works better than government when it comes to everything. In the case of declining bee colonies, market prices worked their magic and now the number of bee colonies is increasing. This year the executive branch launched it’s “National Strategy to Promote the health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators”. No doubt they will try to take credit for this increase. Just like the Obama administration tried to take credit for the growth in domestic oil production (fracking). When in fact they tried, and are still trying (click here), to hinder domestic production.

Solar Industry Admits Green Energy Only Exists Thanks To Government Subsidies, at economicpolicyjournal.com. The only way wind, solar, and geothermal can compete with carbon based fuels is because of government subsidies (your tax dollars). Of course getting a subsidy means you can’t compete. It would be like me saying I can compete with Usain Bolt in the 100 meter dash if I started 30 40 meters ahead of him. Quote, Robert Bradley Jr. – “When Government tries to pick winners and losers, it typically picks losers. Why? Because the Free market consumers pick winners to leave the losers for Government.”

Clinton Says ‘Sorry’ For Email Confusion, Says She Wasn’t Thinking, at yahoo.com. In her own words: “At the end of the day I am sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions but there are answer to all these questions”……”I certainly wish that I had made a different choice and I know why the American people have questions about it…..I take responsibility”……”I was not thinking a lot when I got in. There was so much work to be done. We had so many problems around the world. I didn’t really stop and think what kind of email system will there be,”……”It was allowed and it was fully above board. The people in the government knew that I was using a personal account…”

I’m not going to translate this non apology apology. We are all well versed in translating Clinton speak.
