Fourth Amendment


This is going to sound bad, but bear with me. I actually hope there is a group of terrorists planning something big against the U.S. this weekend. Not because I want anyone hurt or hate my country or love terrorists, but for the simple reason that I’m sick of being lied to by this Administration. …

What do New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and new, high-tech blimps have in common? No, I’m not going there. Christie the other day delivered a verbal broadside against Libertarian thinking that he sees occurring in the Republican Party as more and more people raise objections to the government’s NSA spy-on-everyone program. After the House narrowly …

Yesterday, I searched for Michele Bachmann on Google News. Only Salon and the UK’s Guardian had a story emphasizing her role on the floor of the House, praising the Obama Administration’s spy program. Only Salon made a headline out of it. A couple of others mentioned her. Why didn’t we see headlines on all major …

The 4th of July has come and gone, but there’s a video of a police checkpoint encounter that’s riding the internet popularity wave. It’s had over 2.8 million views since its July 4th posting. A young man by the name of Chris Kalbaugh recorded his Independence Day stop at a DUI checkpoint. The video shows …

What would you do if the police showed up at your front door and told you that they wanted to use your house as a tactical advantage in an investigation involving domestic violence of one of your neighbors?  Would you allow them to move in, turning your home into a stakeout center?  Would you be …

So it’s official now. Those of us who had warned of the rise of the militaristic police state in America can no longer be deemed wingnuts or even conspiracy theorists because the New York Times has effectively endorsed what we’ve been saying for years. That probably doesn’t matter much to conservatives, but it’s important because …

Ever since Edward Snowden divulged the extent of the NSA spying on Americans, the Obama administration has done everything they can to justify what they are doing.  President Obama says it’s legal and necessary and so does Attorney General Eric Holder. In their defense of the collection and monitoring of all of our phone calls, …

Beware what you tell a therapist or doctor because patient confidentiality isn’t always honored. 72 year old Arthur Lovi lives in Arlington Heights, Illinois.  He was suffering from high blood pressure and his doctor believed it was caused by stress so he recommended that Lovi see a therapist.  He made an appointment with a psychologist/therapist. …

In the wake of CIA whistleblower Edward Snowden’s earthshaking revelation that the Obama NSA has been spying on tens of millions of Americans – conservatives, liberals, and moderates alike – by illegally searching and seizing telephone calls and other private data, I tweeted the following: “So can liberals and conservatives all come together now and …

With the NSA spying on all Americans, violating the Fourth Amendment under color of authority with impunity, you’d think that our elected officials would want to get to the bottom of things and find out what’s really going on over at Big Brother Central. Not so much. The Senate scheduled a hearing the other day …

California Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters fits well in the style of today’s Democrats.  She’s kind of a cross between Joe Biden and his gaffs and Nancy Pelosi for stupidity. Water’s Nancy Pelosi mentality led her to a number of irrational and stupid things. Over a year ago, she was pushing for another $1 trillion to …

Isn’t it interesting that people coming out to condemn Snowden as a traitor also claim that what he allegedly leaked isn’t true? How can he be a traitor for “leaking” false information? At worst, he’d be guilty of fraud. At best, he’d be no more than a prankster. If what he leaked is not true. …
