U.S. Govt. “Routinely Breaks Freedom of Info. Laws”
by sattkisson on July 3, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Federal bureaucrats paid tax dollars to act on our behalf routinely break the law with impunity, treating public material as if it’s confidential, secret information to be controlled by a chosen few. They withhold it from us, its rightful owners, while sharing it with select partners such as corporations or other so-called “stakeholders.”

In October, I filed a FOIA request when the CDC was not forthcoming about the epidemic of Enterovirus EV-D68 possibly linked to the deaths of 14 children and 115 paralyzed children.

In December, long past the supposed 20-day response time, I asked about the status. CDC answered incredibly that officials were just too busy with the Ebola crisis to fulfill my FOIA on EV-D68. Even now with the excuse of the Ebola crisis over, I still haven’t been given any EV-D68 information eight months after I asked.

*** end quote ***

The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient!

And, sometimes downright dangerous.

Why should the CDC be any different?

Anyone who expects the Gooferment to protect you will be sadly mistaken. 

How do we get it back?

Secession. Self-reliance. Supportive communities of interest.

Support only private for profit “small” business.

Argh!
