Inside the United States

Hilarious and darkly funny piece on what it would be like if journalists covered the US the way they cover other countries.  What I love is that they have to have a disclaimer at the beginning explaining that it’s satire since our devolution in a Kremlinesque puzzle box makes it so believable that some foreign [Read More...]

IRS to Prolife Group

“Keep your faith to yourself” I wonder if the Feds have ruled on the question of whether “The IRS can go to hell” is a theological statement. [Read more...]

How to tell when you are in deep trouble

When you have Sean Hannity clasping hands with Al Gore and agreeing that you are scary, Jon Stewart and Rush Limbaugh speaking of you as draconian and a tyrant, Glenn Greenwald and Glenn Beck denouncing your astounding and frightening hubris, and cartoons like this showing up on the Daily Kos you are in deep, deep [Read More...]

Something to Think About

From an Atlantic piece on what the technology can do to spy on you: “We also know that the FBI has been intercepting cell-phone data, all but voice content, for the past 20 years without a warrant, and can use the microphone on some powered-off cell phones as a room bug — presumably only with a warrant.” I [Read More...]

I have a hunch…

…we live in a country that is becoming less free and more of a lawless police state each day. The main effect of rejection of Christ on a civilization is to make it find something else to worship. The big four idols are money, sex, power, and honor. Our civilization offers us all four in [Read More...]

Attention Homeschooling Parents: Report to Big Brother in Room 101

He has some questions for you. Very funny piece that manages to forge this trio of sentences in the midst of some other fun verbal fizz: It’s a sham! It’s a sham with yams! It’s a yam sham! Any writer would take pride in that. [Read more...]

When the Executive Has the Power to Murder Whoever He Likes on His Secret and Unilateral Will Alone…

We should not really be surprised when those who work for the executive do sketchy things. A reader writes: Remember that guy who was shot during his FBI interview in FLA a couple weeks ago. Remember how we were told he “suddenly became violent and attacked his interviewers with a knife”. Then it was no [Read More...]

The US Continues its Morph Into a Police State

Latest development: The Pentagon Unilaterally Grants Itself Authority Over “Civil Disturbances” In other words, the Commander in Chief can treat trouble at home as though it is an extension of the never-ending, everywhere-is-the-battlefield War on Terror if he likes. What kind of trouble? Whatever pleases him in his unilateral, unaccountable, secret will. But since when [Read More...]

The Feds are Writing Themselves a Free Ticket to Spy On Your Computer

Bush 43 started it. Now Bush 44 is expanding it. Both parties are your enemies. It’s not Left or Right. It’s our Ruling Class vs. the Rest of Us. The Police State will keep you safe. [Read more...]

Hello? 911? I’d like to report 300 million terrorists!

Sheriff wants you to report anybody who hates the US government. Dear Tin-Plated Bureaucrat with delusions of Police State godhood, here is a reading from the Prophet Tolkien: “‘I can add some more, if you like it,’ said Sam. ‘Calling your Chief Names, Wishing to punch his Pimply Face, and Thinking you Shirriffs look a [Read More...]
