TINFOILHAT: There’s a log tradition of assignation by US Presidents

The Martyrdom of Mary Surratt
By Jack Perry
August 27, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Look here, Mary Surratt was sentenced to death with no appeal possible. Her lawyer managed to obtain a writ to stay her execution and give her a retrial in a civilian court. But—get this—the President of the United States overruled the writ and sent Mary to the gallows. Seems they were in rather a hurry to murder the woman so they wouldn’t appear to have made a mistake. Or, perhaps, to justify themselves as absolute authority. Mary was executed to make sure the government was not embarrassed. People say, “Hey, we were at war! The president had been assassinated! People were scared!” And so that is an acceptable reason to murder an innocent woman? That’s a good reason to refuse the honor the Constitution that supposedly was the highest law of the land? People will say, “Well, that was the past! We’ve learned from that mistake!” Have we?

So, BHO is just following in a long line of killers.

I didn’t know that this poor woman was “railroaded”.

Somehow this small “factoid” wasn’t in the history books.

RANT: Social Security Disability is a joke

Monday, August 29, 2016

Here’s a personal rant.

From PERSONAL experience.

Social Security Disability pays a maximum of a little over 1k$ with a five month “waiting period”.

She earned about 4k$ and paid Soc Sec’s taxes on that.

So, if it was a real “insurance  company”, then that “policy” would have been terrible.

A true disability policy would replace the lost earnings.

The victim in the morality play is screwed. 

And, everyone should NOT depend upon it for anything but “chump change”.

RANT: Louisiana Officials Demand … … and those demands should be dismissed immediately

Louisiana Officials Demand That Self-Reliant Locals Stop Surviving the Flood Without Permission

“So as we are headed back home from the River Center in Baton Rouge volunteering our nursing services Dawn and I have come to the conclusion that neither of us WILL EVER volunteer or donate to the RED CROSS. The Red Cross basically takes over the shelters and starts refusing clothes, donations and various volunteer services UNLESS they are previously contracted. So what does that mean….well, 60 boxes of doughnuts were discarded this morning becuase the delivery vendor was not in contract, hot meals were refused becuase the entity providing wasn’t contracted, and medical supplies including medications were trashed for same reason. Clothes that were “donated” needed to be left on the street unless they were “furnished” by Red Cross. As of tomorrow, the shelter we were at will be completely over taken by the Red Cross other than the medical area because they couldnt have the actual room since LSU has a contract with state to provide medical care. Its sad when the military police were helping to “protect” the medical areas from the red cross when there are so many other issues at hand. Anyway, next time to want to donate or volunteer your services, do your homework.”

Sorry, but “neighbors helping neighbors” is the best fastest most cost effective help that can be delivered.

And, “We, The Sheeple” need to wake up — Gooferment is the problem!

TINFOILHAT: What is the FDA and various politicians role with EpiPen?

For my daughter, the EpiPen is a lifeline, not a luxury

*** begin quote ***

The disgraceful 461% increase in the price of this vital medication is a symptom of a system where corporate greed takes precedence over public health 

*** and ***

This month, pharmaceutical company, Mylan, crowed that they smashed second-quarter expectations; with earnings of $2.56bn, up 8% from the year before. Their CEO’s salary has ballooned 671% over the past eight years. The corporation was able to accomplish this in part, because they are the maker of a medical device called the EpiPen, which delivers a life-saving drug to stop an anaphylactic allergy attack. The company has raised the price of this medication 461% since 2007. Mylan’s latest announcement – that it would offer various new pricing concessions to families on lower incomes and those who have to pay out of pocket, cannot alter this stark fact.

*** end quote ***

Now before we take the “capitalist pigs” out and lynch them, can we make some inquiries?

1. Is this the only epi pen on the market?

2. Is it patented? If so, how many years left?

3. How is the FDA involved in this process? How much did / does Mylan spend on regulatory compliance?

4. Has there been any “political” involvement?

5. Does a corporation have to “justify” it’s prices? (In a truly free market, the “invisible hand” would prompt supply from competitors very quickly!)

I’d like answers before “we” “hang” them!

All planners need to do is place the bays at a 45 degree angle, which cuts down the turning circle required and therefore needs a smaller access lane, freeing up more space for parking.

I find this fascinating.

Large?

Peplos Republic of Nu Jerzee has some HUGE ones.

I’d imagine that this would be an easy update.

Wanna bet that it’s not permitted by zoning codes!!!

Argh!

LIBERTARIAN: Secession is the answer

The Fifty State Solution
By Jim Cox
August 20, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Disgusted by the prospect of Hillary Clinton and/or Donald Trump having the power of the presidency? I certainly am. And for full disclosure here, I don’t think any individual should have the powers that have accrued to the president over this country’s development. As has often been stated, “It’s not the abuse of power, it’s the power to abuse” that we should worry about. Even with some substitute candidates we’d still face the power to abuse problem.

*** end quote ***

I am a firm believer in “secession” as a solution to all our political problems.

Of course, unwinding the Federal Gooferment’s knots would be a challenge, if the political elite would permit it. Argh!

Clearly imho Texas, Alaska, Hawaii, Utah, North Dakota, and New Hampshire have substantial support and have taken some steps to facilitate it.

Who will be the first out?

RANT: “Academic Zika Virus”

Beware the Academic Zika Virus
By Thomas DiLorenzo
August 20, 2016

*** begin quote ***

By now just about everyone has heard of the zika virus, transmitted by mosquitos, which is said to cause brain damage in children.  As worrisome as this is, an even bigger brain damage threat to young people is what I call the academic zika virus, transmitted by left-wing, politically-correct “educators.”  There are exceptions, but undergraduate education in America has become one big socialist indoctrination academy that fills students’ heads with cultural Marxist myths, superstitions, and falsehoods while inculcating an infantile culture that teaches students to run crying to “safe rooms” if a dissenting voice should somehow appear on campus.  All of this can be yours for a mere 50 grand a year at many universities.

*** end quote ***

Yup, it’s a meme. An idea that spreads like gene. And the American “Universities” are the mosquito that transmits it.

The fact that people send their children to these “schools” to be infected is another parallel with Zika.

Argh!

Wonder when people will smarten up or it’s already too late.

Sigh!
