They had conducted a poll from users Re Privacy and Security.

Protecting our privacy and staying secure in the physical world is second nature. We lock our doors to keep out unwanted guests. We shut our blinds to thwart nosy neighbors. And we tuck away our wallets to foil thieves. It’s habit. And it’s common sense.

Yet online — where we shop, flirt, gossip and type unseemly questions into search engines — we rarely apply the same vigilance. We recycle passwords, we run outdated software and we volunteer personal information for a free coupon.”

“We” The collective we, is not MOI.

I suppose this would make good satire; suitable to be posted under that category, but no – it is a commentary.

Our beloved rogue government, courtesy of the Unconstitutional ACA act, (aka Unaffordable Care Act) incinerated what would have been a tax refund of something over seven hundred dollars.  To use a Generation X term, they Grudge effed me.

Circumstances beyond my control had resulted in having no health coverage all year; this was the year they really decided to up the penalty and punish the little guy.  I was also -because of near kaleidoscopic shuffling of my work schedule- unable to get available free tax preparation this year.  With little time remaining, before the deadline came around, it became necessary to pay a commercial preparer for this years filing…

To “commemorate” this Monty Python experience, I elected to have those (!) issue me a check, suitable for framing.  I hope it costs them more than the face amount.  I remain UN-amused.

From 1978:

 

 

Speak to me  On the lead in grooves to “Breathe”  Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon:

“I’ve been mad for f*****g years, absolutely years, been
over the edge for yonks, been working me buns off for bands…”

“I’ve always been mad, I know I’ve been mad, like most of us are…very hard to explain why you’re mad, even if you’re not mad…”

Well, I’m not mad; though the world might well be certifiable.

From Documentary Tube.com:

“In 2013, a Texas based company produced the first ever precision-guided firearm, a sniper that is essentially a long-range, laser guided robot rifle.

The rifle allows the bearer “skill free killing”. And it is available to anyone that can afford it. You can strike something from a ¾ of a mile away.

The technology is advanced to the point that beginners can kill someone at extreme distances with single-shot accuracy. They call it, the gun of tomorrow.”

I recently made a post about attacks on the second amendment, and the responsibility of gun ownership.   In my opinion there is no justification for this technology, except exclusively for the military.  Now, any guy off the street (with a clean record) could buy one of these…

It Started with PAN / In My Life

I refrain from making big changes to my page unless necessary to maintain its integrity.

Those who have been long time allies with me here on WP, may recall that I started my political posts on Patriot Action Network.  [I previously mentioned having been suspended out of hand, for calling them out on platform issues, which prevented members from being able to make posts.]

Since then, with much “water under the bridge”, I finally tracked all the posts in my archives, saved the ones which I had reposted here, and deleted those which I had linked to but were no longer accessible. These can now be found under the menu category “PAN ARCHIVES”.  They include posts which were formerly under either Rogue Government, or Big Brother.

They represent many allies I can no longer communicate with, as well as former administrators who have since departed.  I have managed to keep in contact with a few of them, and they remain highly valued allies.  Regardless of age, the contents remain as valid today, as when they first appeared.

Interview with Dr. Bill Warner Ph.D — Israel, Islam and End Times

Israel, Islam and End Times

*                         *                         *

A personal observation reposted from an American Veteran’s blog:  [Note – Where “development”, or “history” are the appropriate words to use, I resent any form of the word “evolution”.  So I have made the needed correction; God is in charge, and Darwin’s damned theory is inappropriate.]

A Wake Up Call For Any American Who Gives A Damn!

Dateline: Hamtramck, Michigan

I have been reading the Hamtramck “Review” (A local newspaper serving Hamtramck, Michigan and I noted an article revealing a landmark shopping venue, The Polish Market, has announced their closing and is now history.

A sign on the property says that “Due to circumstances beyond our control we are forced to close.”

City leadership is lamenting the loss of the iconic shopping venue as “A loss for the city.”

Sounds like any other store closing brought on possibly be adverse financial circumstances at first look, doesn’t it?

I mean old, well-established and much-loved stores are closing every day in America and that is the way business in America has historically rolled, isn’t it?  Stores come and stores go.

But I believe there is an angle to this story that a lot of people are going to overlook or that isn’t going to get much play in the Press.

On reading a little further into the story, I discovered that the owner of the business had told the Hamtramck Director of Community and Economic Development that his store had been losing money every month …. with the demographic change in the city.”

With the demographic change in the city —– With the demographic change in the city —– With the demographic change in the city!

For decades Hamtramck had been known as a predominately Polish city.  But the hands of time have moved on and political correctness has become the order of the day and now Hamtramck’s majority population is ….. wait for it …. wait for it …. “Immigrants!”

And where are these majority of Hamtramck’s immigrants from?

They are from Bangladesh and Yemen — and Bosnia — and…  here is the kicker as far as I am concerned …   Most of these Hamtramck immigrants from Bangladesh, Yemen and Bosnia are of the …. Muslim …. faith.

Muslims!

Muslims now make up the majority of the demographic of once predominately Polish Hamtramck, Michigan and there are now reported to be at least a dozen other markets catering to that new Hamtramck demographic.

Some kind of unavoidable coincidence?

Or a pattern perhaps?

I do not know but I am going to assume that this demographic change was very slow and very subtle and that most of the original residents of Hamtramck probably had no idea of what was happening in their community — and if they did realize what was happening they probably had no voice in the development of that demographic change.

The question I have today is for my readers: “Does any of what I have just written look at all like anything that might be happening in the city, the town, the village, the hamlet, the neighborhood where you live?

I am going to venture a guess that this is a pattern that is spreading slowly across The United States and that before too much time has passed there are going to be a whole lot of Americans who will get blindsided by similar demographic changes in their own places of residence.

Is it a demographic change or is it a demographic replacement?

I ask, you decide!

Does it matter at all?

I would say that the question of whether it matters or not is a question for individuals to ask themselves because I do not think any concerns raised by individuals about such matters are going to receive very much attention from either the politically correct elitists in government or the press on their payrolls.

This is a question that everybody who reads this is going to have to resolve themselves.

1993 Clinton-Era Letter To Jeff Sessions Surfaces, DESTROYS Media Hysteria Over DOJ Firings

Free Republic

The liberal media is furious after President Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, fired 46 attorneys appointed by the Obama Administration.  Every administration has the right and the prerogative to have its own appointees in seats of power.

We’ve seen this time and time again, regardless of who the President is.  But it’s ONLY when that President is Donald J. Trump that the media loses its collective mind.  For example, the media’s extreme bias is showing when you take a look at what we just dug up: A 1993 letter from former President Clinton’s Attorney General, Janet Reno, to then-Attorney Jeff Sessions. Attorney General Janet Reno fired 93 U.S. attorneys (holdovers from the Reagan and George H.W. Bush days), leaving only one in New Jersey spared. This was in 1993 – the first year of Bill Clinton’s presidency.

My most recent acquaintance on WP is a fellow who’s blog name is FindingPoliticalSanity.com.  Link to His “about” page

He isn’t a Trump fan.  Neither is he a liberal loon.  His background makes for a convincing resume.  I enjoy his comments; most of the time, I’ve not seen much in the way of intellectual feedback, and they are welcome, even if we have disagreements on certain issues.

So – I am making this post as a way of showing how our contacts can be inspirational, as well as encouraging useful debate.

For the longest time, one might say interminable, the left has made continual attacks on our second amendment.  The endless assault is both reprehensible, and -to be polite- unrealistic.

Criminals don’t give one hoot about law; to them, the left’s insistence on “gun free zones” and more regulations on gun ownership is an open invitation to pillage and plunder innocent lives.  Yet they’re so damned deluded, that they remain unconvinced, and want to put even more egregious laws in place.

The Moldy State of CA, (my satiric play on their nickname) is so anti-gun that a homeowner, in self defense of life and property, (and with much justification) could easily still be arrested, and find him or herself behind bars.

I don’t feel the need to list all of the heinous crimes which were part and parcel to these so called gun free zones; the most obvious situation to me were the Ft. Hood shootings.  Moreover the laws limiting magazine capacity is yet another infringement on gun owners, not the criminals whom we seek to protect ourselves from.

The original intent of the founders has been twisted almost into a pretzel by liberals, in order to convince the general public that more gun laws are needed,  in point of fact, trying to locate the actual number of laws on the books was rather difficult; I did find several references on various legislation, but no actual figures.

However, before I put links to those articles, the fact remains that the public (IMHO) has been conditioned to be afraid of the very tool which safeguards all the other amendments in our Bill of Rights.

Gun ownership is a great responsibility, not to be taken lightly.  Not merely the cost of purchasing one, but being properly trained in gun safety, (in the neighborhood of say $300. for a well versed instructor) the cost of practice rounds, a cleaning kit, holster, carrying case, and spare magazines.

Regular practice to refine ones accuracy, and becoming comfortable with their choice of weapon must also be part of this continuing education, as well as the local gun laws in their community.

Personally, I was never very enthused with hand guns; it was out of the need to obtain one in order to assume an armed position of employment, that I settled upon a Springfield Armory 9mm.  I like rifles very much; however, with no time, money, or experienced company to educate me, it is foolish to buy one just for its own sake.

Here are a few articles referencing gun laws- From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Major federal gun laws

Most federal gun laws are found in the following acts:

 

Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (2005): Prevent firearms manufacturers and licensed dealers from being held liable for negligence when crimes have been committed with their products.

Gun laws in your state

 

For those interested, the National Firearms Act Handbook

The federal government confiscated $1,084,840,000,000 in tax revenues in the first 4 months of the fiscal year — and still managed to spend $156,940,000,000 more than it took in. This amazing feat was accomplished by wasting the money in ways that defy any normal person’s imagination.

By Matthew Trewhella

A false belief that almost all Americans hold to in our day is the idea that the U.S. Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what is constitutional or unconstitutional. The adherents of this belief – and there is a sea of lawyers in this country who have a vested interest in furthering this odious fiction – actually have the hubris to point to the Constitution itself and say that the Constitution declares the judiciary to be the final arbiter.

They proffer Article 6, paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution – the ‘supremacy clause’ – for their notion of judicial supremacy. But when you read Article 6, paragraph 2, you realize that the Supreme Court isn’t even mentioned, nor are federal courts of any kind mentioned. Article 6, paragraph 2 – known as the supremacy clause actually gives supremacy to the Constitution!

Wholly opposite of this view of ‘judicial supremacy’ was the view held by America’s founders. They viewed the judiciary as being the weakest branch of the government.

In a letter penned in 1823, Thomas Jefferson stated: “At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous.”

Alexander Hamilton who was the most favorable to the judiciary – wanting to allay the fears that other of the founders had of the judiciary – stated: “The judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in the capacity to annoy or injure them.”

James Madison – known as the architect of the Constitution – stated: The Judiciary is beyond comparison the weakest of the three departments of power.” He said, In republican government, the legislative authority necessarily predominates.”  The legislature does not bow down to the judiciary – rather it predominates.

The judiciary is not the strongest – it does not write laws – it is not the final arbiter. Rather, as the founders stated – they are supposed to be the most helpless, the most harmless, the weakest, and the least dangerous to the Constitution. All that has been turned on its head. Now all other branches bow down to the judiciary – as though they can do no other than obey. America has replaced a monarchy with an oligarchy.

We now have social transformation without representation.

Jefferson warned of this 200 years ago. He wrote in a letter in 1820 to an early judicial supremacist:“You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.” He went on to write: “The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.”

And that is what the Supreme Court is in our day – despots.

And they are not the final arbiters – as Jefferson states, “The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal.”

Jefferson stated in another letter in 1821 – a year later: “The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.”

And the judiciary has been doing exactly that for 200 years now. Rewriting the Constitution – giving themselves powers never granted them in the Constitution. Usurping all other government jurisdictions.

Men will forbear and so we should – but there comes a point where forbearance becomes sin. There comes a point where forbearance becomes cowardice. There comes a point when men realize they no longer have the convenience of acting indifferent towards the unjust and immoral actions of their government. And I submit to you that the lawlessness of the judiciary should not be forborne.

I submit to you that the murder of the preborn should not be forborne. The perverting of marriage, the rewriting of the First Amendment, and a host of other evils by the federal judiciary should not be forborne.

Senator Oliver Ellsworth, the primary drafter of Article 3 of the Constitution which delineates the function of the judiciary, promised the people of his state before the Constitution was ratified that the judiciary was “not to intermeddle with your internal policy.”

Now every governor in America bows down and bends over to the judiciary. They accommodate murder – they accommodate perversion of marriage – they’ll accommodate boys in the girl’s shower rooms too.

Alexander Hamilton – the founding father with the biggest love affair with the judiciary while trying to calm concerns of other founders stated that the judiciary “must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments.”

In other words, Hamilton expected the executive branch to check the judiciary if they made immoral/unjust or constitutionally-repugnant rulings. But now, the judiciary not only has the compliance of the President (not to mention Congress), but they also have the compliance of every governor in America. None interpose.

Their duty is not to accommodate or bow down – but to interpose.

The judiciary is the tyrant. They are lawless. We are under the despotism of an oligarchy. And this lawless authoritarianism of the federal courts must be broken – it will only be broken by the interposition of the lesser magistrates.

No where does the Constitution bind us to a suicide pact with SCOTUS.

As legal historian Alpheus Thomas Mason wrote not too long ago: “Implicit in the system of government the Framers designed is the basic premise that unchecked power in any hands whatsoever is intolerable.” The Supreme Court must be checked – and it must be checked by the state magistrates. Congress is not going to do it – Congress is a weakling. The state magistrates need to do their God-given duty and check the lawlessness of the judiciary.
