Africa: A Tragic Continent
By Walter E. Williams
October 28, 2014

*** begin quote ***

Though there’s a strong case for us to help with the Ebola crisis, the worst thing Westerners could do to Africa would be to send more foreign aid. Foreign aid provides the financial resources that enable Africa’s grossly corrupt and incompetent regimes to buy military equipment, pay off cronies and continue to oppress their people. It also provides resources for the leaders to live lavishly and set up “retirement” accounts in foreign banks.

*** end quote ***

Anyone notice that the USA is broke?

So why should “We, The Sheeple” support borrowing money from China to send it to the Swiss bank accounts of Third World “leaders”?

Suggest that we PNG (“Personna Non Grata”) politicians and bureaucrats from these countries.

Let them stew in their own juice.

POLITICAL: No party affiliations?

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Any one notice that the TV ads never mention the party that they represent?

And never mind the “Independents” who are ex-D’s and will caucus with the D’s, but they are not D’s. No!!!

Argh!

POLITICAL: Addiction is a MEDICAL problem

Subject: Advisory Message: South Brunswick Police Officers Save 21-year-old man

*** begin quote ***

South Brunswick Police Officers quick actions saved the life of a 21-year-old Township man early Sunday morning. At 4:11am police received a 911 call from a man who said his friend had overdosed on heroin and was unconscious in a backyard. Officer Scott Bucca and Officer Marcus Leysath responded to the residence off Deans Lane and were directed to the backyard by the friend. They found the victim unresponsive with minimal breathing. Officers used the medicine Naloxone to prevent the heroin from slowing and stopping the victim’s breathing. The officers reported that within minutes of administering the medicine the victim began to breathe normally. The Monmouth Junction First Aid Squad and paramedics transported the victim to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick for treatment.

While any tragedy averted is good, it has to trace back to the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”!

If all “illegal” drugs were for sale at WalMart and Walgreens, then addicts would be safe from adulteration and varying concentrations. 

Addiction is a MEDICAL problem, not a LEGAL problem. 

And, if “drugs” were no longer illegal, then they wouldn’t be “kool”. 

Argh!

One of the reasons that USP http://www.usp.org/ was formed was to ensure safe drug standards.

So once again, Gooferment creates a problem and then “finds” a solution that requires more Gooferment!

POLITICAL: The “fruit of the poisonous tree”

Parallel Reconstruction
By Andrew P. Napolitano
October 9, 2014

*** begin quote ***

Nevertheless, the NSA’s agents and lawyers felt it necessary to concoct this groundless, disingenuous and fictional legal distinction in order to persuade the FISA court that it is legally acceptable to permit untethered spying so long as the fruits of that spying are not used in criminal prosecutions. Curiously and naively, judges of the FISA court bought that argument.

So, what happens when the spying uncovers ordinary criminal behavior unrelated to national security? In order to keep its hands clean, so to speak, the NSA sends that evidence to the DOJ, whose lawyers and agents in cahoots with the NSA then concoct an explanation as to how the DOJ came upon the evidence. Of course, that explanation curiously and carefully omits the mention of domestic spying. DOJ lawyers know that if the beginning of the process of obtaining evidence is found to be unconstitutional, then the evidence itself can be useless in court.

This is what lawyers and judges call the “fruit of the poisonous tree.”

*** end quote ***

This is deceptive, unlawful and unconstitutional behavior by the Executive Branch.

It undermines the “Rule of Law”.

And the fact that it was done by BOTH the R Bush and the D Obama demonstrates that there is little difference between the D’s and the R’s.

At the very least, there should be dismissals and pardons for ALL defendants who were unfairly convicted. 

Argh!

POLITICAL: Marriott is now in my list!

How This Hotel Made Sure Your Wi-Fi Hotspot Sucked
Caught by FCC for Wi-Fi jamming, Marriott’s still not sorry.
Adriana Lee
ADRIANA LEE 20 HOURS AGO

*** begin quote ***

According to the FCC, Marriott’s Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center intentionally used Wi-Fi jamming tactics on its own guests. The interference made it impossible for people to use their own personal hotspots, leaving Marriott’s costly Wi-Fi as the only other option. In response to the investigation, the hotel agreed Friday to pay a penalty of $600,000 and promised to stop its signal-blocking activities.

Sorry, but there is no excuse for this.

I’m going to write them an complain.

POLITICAL: Ebola epidemic will spread by air travel?

Sunday, October 12, 2014

http://www.offthegridnews.com/2014/10/11/4-reasons-ebola-cant-be-stopped/

 

*** begin quote ***

The United States and Canada are still allowing air travel from the nations of Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia where the Ebola epidemic is centered.

The Ebola patient who died in Dallas, Thomas Eric Duncan, had flown from Liberia. About 150 people each day fly from those three countries to the US. South Africa and a host of other African countries have closed off flights from the three West African countries, but the United States and Canada have not.

The most likely way Ebola could spread on planes may not be from contact with passengers, but from waste on planes. Some airliners are now so filthy and unsanitary that cabin cleaners at New York’s LaGuardia Airport walked off the job, The New York Daily News reported. The cleaners are angry because of the danger of potential exposure to Ebola.

“I have to deal with vomit, feces and a lot of chemicals, without proper equipment,” cleaner Johanna Cruz told The Daily News. “They give us gloves, but they might as well be made of paper because they rip so easily.”

*** end quote ***

Sorry, but it’s just stupid to NOT shut down air travel.

And, it’s not unreasonable to quarantine travelers.

This poor soul flew while infected and did NOT show symptoms until after he was here.

Argh!

POLITICAL: Switch all pension plans to defined-contribution!

A Wake-Up Call for Public Pension Systems
Jason Russell | 10/03/2014 |

*** begin quote ***

For decades, public pension systems have been doling out more than they take in. Labor unions have stymied reform efforts, but the latest estimates of the public pension gap may finally serve as a wake-up call.

A new study from Moody’s Investors Service, the bond credit rating business, reports that the level of unfunded liabilities for the 25 largest state and local U.S. public pensions is now more than $2 trillion. The gap is more than three times higher than it was just a decade ago.

*** and ***

No one wants to see pensioners live poorer lives, caused by broken promises and bankrupt pensions. The public pension system’s integrity must be protected with common-sense reforms that acknowledge the reality of the constantly growing pension gap. The ideal reform for struggling pension systems would be a switch from defined-benefit to defined-contribution pension plans.

*** end quote ***

For the various Pepuls Republiks of Nu Jerzee, Nu Jerk, Taxachusetts, Kalifornication, and Flori-Duh, it’s too late.

The Teachers Unions, the politicians, the bureaucrats, and Crony Capitalists control the Gooferment.

Best possible outcome for the poor and the taxpayers is that these “disaster zones” go broke. Like Detroit.

Withdraw your consent by leaving these “theft zones”. 

Expect the worst.

Buy a mini bond, you must be out of your mind.

Even a silver coin will preserve your wealth better!
