“Clown Prince” obama To Continue To Negate Constitution
The “Clown Prince” should take time out of his busy ‘apology’ tours to read the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.  For a cuppla’ bucks, obama could get HIS VERY OWN pocket-copy of the document from the Government Printing Office [ http://www.gpo.gov/ ].
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution:

  1. prohibits the making of any law “respecting an establishment of religion”,
  2. prohibits impeding the free exercise of religion,
  3. prohibits infringing on the freedom of speech,
  4. prohibits infringing on the freedom of the press,
  5. prohibits interfering with the right to peaceably assemble,
  6. prohibits interfering with  the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.

As a part of his advancing fascist philosophies, obama appears to fully support the federal takeover of the internet!! He certainly has not blathered about the upper echelon of the Federal Communications Commission.
   According to reports, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Julius Genacowski will seek to reclassify broadband services under New Deal-era “common carrier” laws created for early landline telephone technology, thereby allowing the government to regulate the Internet via outdated rules.  In response, Center for Individual Freedom’s Vice President of Legal and Public Affairs Timothy Lee issued the following statement:

  • “The FCC should not attempt to apply archaic 1930s rules to 21st century technologies.”
  • “This move by Chairman Genacowski will do nothing but stifle innovation, investment and growth within the broadband sector.”

 

Well, It’s About Time!!
The citizens whose tax dollars support “all things government,” should be amazed that the fascists are trying to have the Federal Reserve
audited, BUT ONLY ONCE!! This is an amendment ot the on-going attempt to regulate Wall Street.
   “The Sanders Amendment makes it clear that the Fed can no longer operate in the kind of secrecy that it has operated in forever,” Sanders said on the floor before the vote. “Under the Sanders Amendment, for the first time, the American people will know exactly who received over $2 trillion in zero or virtually zero interest loans from the Fed and they will know the exact terms of those financial arrangements.”

The amendment, which passed 96-0 with overwhelming bipartisan support, was the product of a deal brokered late last week by sponsor Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) and Banking Committee Chairman “Crooked” Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) to make the provision acceptable to White House and Treasury officials, and appealing to Senate moderates.

Sanders’s modified language sets a firm time window for the review of the Fed—from Dec. 1, 2007 to the day the legislation is signed into law—and restricts the Government Accountability Office from looking into the Fed’s decision-making on interest rates.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke had serious objections to Sanders’ original bill because he feared it would impinge on the Fed’s historic independence by involving Congress in monetary policy decisions.

   Democrats have vowed to overhaul the mortgage companies later in the year. But with a request this week by Fannie Mae for another $8.4 billion in federal aid, Republicans are pressing their colleagues across the aisle to explain why the financial overhaul bill doesn’t address the companies.

 

 

Run Fred, Run!!  But, Will He??
   As usual, the second half of Bob Matthews sports show on Wednesdays is “The Fred Smerlas” show.  This past Wednesday’s show wasn’t indicative of shows of the recent past in that there was a bit more ‘sports’ talk rather than politics.
   Fred’s comments on the political front:

  1. Fred is taking the grassroots campaign to draft him to run for the 28th Congressional District very seriously!  He’s amazed at the response to the website in the couple of weeks of it’s existance.  There have been +/- 1,200 “sign-ups,” with pledges of support, votes, cash and ‘in-kind’ donations!
  2. Fred has spoken with the republicRAT leaders in the several counties and cities that the 28th District represents, with very positive results.  Apparently the nomination is his for the taking.
  3. Fred and his family have some very tough discussions ahead; some very tough decisions to make.  He said on the show that he would announce his decision by the end of the week.  With “the end of the week” being subjective, we don’t know if he ment by Friday, Saturday or Sunday…. Guess we just gotta wait!!

Paterson IS The Schlub We Think He Is!!
   If you were in a US high school “American History” class after about 1975 or so, you probably wouldn’t know this.  A primary reason for the American Revolution were the taxes assessed upon the American colonies by King George III, of Great Britain, without any input from the colonists.  Hence the phrase: “Taxation Without Representation!”
   New York Governor “Double-Dealin’ Dave” Paterson has taken this concept to a whole new level–violating both the U.S. and New York Constitutions to do it!!

  • The United States Constitution grants every citizen the right to representation in the Congress.
  • The New York Constitution demands a special election within 40 days of a congressional seat being declared ‘vacant.’

   Eric Massa [of “tickle-fight” fame] resigned his seat in the 29th Congressional District effective 5PM, 03/08/2010.  Technically, 40 days hence, a special election should have taken place–BUT–there had been no official declaration of vacancy until 05/12/2010, when  Paterson just happened to mention it in one of his obama-like blather ops.  During that blather, “Double-Dealin’ Dave” said that due to the costs involved, the ‘special election’ would coincide with the regularly scheduled general election; which IS NOT 40 days hence, but a full 174 days from the date of the resignation;  5 months, 3 weeks from the ‘declaration!!’
  Then wouldn’t it be fair to say that 29th Congressional District residents OWE NO FEDERAL INCOME OR BUSINESS TAXES; OWE NO NEW YORK INCOME OR BUSINESS TAXES for the 7 months and 24 days [or 5 months, 3 weeks] they will have HAD NO FEDERAL REPRESENTATION??  In this matter, Chuckie-Cheese Schumer or the “Invisible Senator” Gillibrand don’t count; all spending and taxation legislation MUST ORIGINATE in the House of Representatives!!

New York State–Stickin’ It To Ya, Yet Again!!
   Assembly Bill 6468C, sponsored by State Assemblywomen Michelle Schimel (D-16), passed the Assembly and the Senate version of the bill, Senate Bill 6005, sponsored by State Senator Eric Schneiderman (D-31), is currently pending in the Senate Codes Committee. Both bills require that semiautomatic pistols manufactured or delivered to any licensed dealer in the state of New York be capable of micro-stamping and establish fines for violations of this requirement.

   Micro-stamping is an unproven technology that would require unique identifying information from the firearm, including the make, model, and serial number, to be etched into the firing pin and breech face in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted on the cartridge case upon firing. The technology can easily be defeated with common household tools, has no public safety value, and adds substantially to the cost of the firearm.

If passed, the availability of semi-automatic handguns in New York could be in jeopardy, as manufacturers simply may choose not to build or sell firearms for purchase in the state, which is the goal of this legislation.

   If allowed to become law, this bill will serve as a ban on all new semiautomatic handguns in New York State ! It is imperative that you contact your lawmakers and ask their position on A6468C and S6005. Also, respectfully urge them to oppose these bills.
