The Playmobil Security Checkpoint (I am not making this up)

Just a little something to help make your children docile drones of the Police State: The Amazon Review subculture is, however, johnny on the spot with the usual hilarity: I was a little disappointed when I first bought this item, because the functionality is limited. My 5 year old son pointed out that the passenger’s [Read More...]

Abortion Clinic Jackbooted Thug…

…attacks peaceful protesters. This little tin-plated fascist with delusions of running the SA or Bull Connor’s Civil Rights unit is guarding the last abortion clinic in Mississippi.  The devil is furious because he knows his time is short. As we devolve into a police state, one of the things that the people in charging of [Read More...]

I don’t want to live in a world like this

HT: Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Almost every response the US had to 9/11 has been deeply stupid and destructive.  And it has usually been sold as tough-minded practical get-it-done know how that doesn’t listen to the ivory tower pantywaists who heed the Catholic tradition.  We have the country we deserve.  That’s how democracy works.

There are still some bugs to be worked out of the Police/Surveillance State

One of them is when the Police accidently get their own selves surveilled when they don’t want to be. The woman is suing these goons for $2 million. ‘They sat her down on a bench and yanked them out… they were embedded in her upper-left breast, if you can imagine,’ Jeremy Beaver said. Officer Taylor-Santino [Read More...]

Feel Safer Or You May Be An Enemy of the State

Senate Bill rewrite lets Feds read your email without a warrant I wonder if they will send the cops to tase you into cardiac arrest if you find a hack around that. What I find darkly amusing about the latter story is that, after a cursory mention of an innocent woman brutally tased to her [Read More...]

The Taser States of America

Seems like hardly a week goes by that you don’t hear about some power-drunk cop tasing somebody for some triviality. This week’s story: some guy on his own property, defending his own house and his own family from a fire, using his own garden hose is tased by this week’s police state bully. I hope [Read More...]

The People’s Democratic National Security State of Heaven

eats its own in an exquisite act of justice.  Even an atheist like Glenn Greenwald can only barely be restrained from seeing the hand of God in it: It is usually the case that abuses of state power become a source for concern and opposition only when they begin to subsume the elites who are [Read More...]

Our Post-9/11 Ruling Class

…working together to destroy your liberty while scaring you about the bogeyman. You can jigger Americans into buying almost any intrusion on their rights and privacy–up to and including handing the Tyrant-in-Chief the power to torture, indefinitely jail and murder you on a whim–just so long as you tell people it’s to defeat “terror”.
