From 3 to 4,500: What laws have you broken today? posted 07/24/2011, 10:58 AM (Douglas French)
[Category: Commentary]
The U.S. Constitution mentions three federal crimes by citizens: treason, piracy and counterfeiting. Today, there are an estimated 4,500 crimes in federal statutes, write Gary Fields and John R. Emshwiller for the Wall Street Journal.

Clarence Darrow anticipated the prison nation that America is today a hundred years ago in his book Resist Not Evil.  All areas of life have become part of the penal code, with an army of people operating as police, legislators, and the court system to enforce these laws through force and violence.  But even Darrow wouldn’t have dreamed that the unauthorized use of the Smokey Bear image, or of the slogan “Give a Hoot, Don’t Pollute” can land a person in federal prison.

Fields and Emshwiller’s frightening article tells about a father and son chased by the Feds for unknowingly digging on federal ground for arrowheads.  “The Andersons are two of the hundreds of thousands of Americans to be charged and convicted in recent decades under federal criminal laws--as opposed to state or local laws--as the federal justice system has dramatically expanded its authority and reach.”

The Amercian Bar Association can’t  even tally up the federal offenses exactly but believe the number exceeds 3,000.  The ABA’s report said “the amount of individual citizen behavior now potentially subject to federal criminal control has increased in astonishing proportions in the last few decades.”

A Justice spokeswoman told the WSJ, that there was no quantifiable number. “Criminal statutes are sprinkled throughout some 27,000 pages of the federal code,” write Fields and Emshwiller.

These crimes of the state’s making are sending 83,000 people a year to federal prison.  While the US population has grown 36% in t

The Policeman is Not Your Friend posted 07/24/2011, 10:57 AM (Kevin Carson)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
After writing so many columns on police issues, I suppose I should make the disclaimer that my dad was a cop. I’m morally certain he was a good man, and that — however much we might differ on politics were he still alive — he was scrupulously just by his standards.

But when I see a cop in my rearview mirror, I don’t like having to hope it’s a decent person. And there’s good reason to assume any cop you see is a bad person.

Traffic Enforcement Agent Blocks Fire Hydrant With Her Official Vehicle To Go To Store, Then A Fire Breaks Out Next Door posted 07/24/2011, 10:57 AM (YouTube)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]

Some laws may seem spurious and arcane. Other laws are very logical. For example, New York City vehicle and traffic law prohibits a motorist from parking his vehicle within 15 feet of a fire hydrant. This is not rocket science here. Obviously the law is in place to save lives by creating a zone for firemen to access the water and do their job as expeditiously as po

NYPD traffic agent double parks to go buy a donut which carries a fine of $115.00 dollars for the average New Yorker. After returning to his vehicle he issues a parked minivan a ticket before biting into his donut and driving off. Here in New York law enforcement break every law that citizens must obey, here is yet another example.

Norway Attack: 90 minute police delay gave killer time to lure some to their deaths posted 07/24/2011, 10:59 AM (New York Daily News)
[Category: Cover-Up/Deceptions]
Inept Norweigan cops couldn't locate a helicopter or a boat, allowing the gunman to shoot down his victims for 90 minutes before help arrived.

By that time, the mass murderer in a police uniform had methodically slaughtered 85 victims.

The terrified victims fleeing Anders Behring Breivik ran and swam for their lives as they waited in horror for help that came too late for many, officials said yesterday.

A SWAT team dispatched to the killing field on U

[Category: Cover-Up/Deceptions]
For much of the day yesterday, the featured headline on The New York Times online front page strongly suggested that Muslims were responsible for the attacks on Oslo; that led to definitive statements on the BBC and elsewhere that Muslims were the culprits.  The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin wrote Gekås in the small, 9,000-population town of Ullared in southern Sweden attracts 28,000 customers daily. Obviously, most of the customer... (more)

Let Us All Sacrifice to Balance the Budget posted 07/24/2011, 10:48 AM (Anthony Gregory)
[Category: Economy]
We’re often told that the budget can’t be cut without all of us sacrificing. This is used as a rationale to raise taxes. But it need not be that way.

After all, aren’t we also told that everyone benefits from the government? Surely the poor do, or so we hear. And the middle class? Of course we all are blessed to have the federal government be as active and large as it is. That’s what it’s mainly there for, all the politicians tell us.

The rich too must benefit immen

2 N.J. teens labeled sex offenders for life after 'horseplay' incident posted 07/24/2011, 10:48 AM (
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
SOMERSET COUNTY — Call it bullying or call it horseplay. Either way, a state appellate court panel says roughhousing with a sexual connotation by a pair of 14-year-old Somerset County boys was a crime that requires them to register as sex offenders for the rest of their lives.

In a decision handed down Monday, the three-judge panel acknowledged the severity of its decision, but said it was bound to uphold the law.

The U.S. has a greater percentage of its population locked up than any other country in the world.

Despite budget cuts and tax shortfalls housing inmates costs the country almost $600 billion a year.

Despite the rising incarceration rates over the last decade, crime is actually down.

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura lambasted Friday at a federal court hearing "un-American" security procedures implemented at airports across the nation in 2010.

He filed a lawsuit with the Transportation Security Administration in January, claiming their use of pat down searches at airport security checkpoints is unconstitutional. Pioneer Press reported that a lawyer for Ventura argued in federal court that the searches v

US Chamber Of Commerce Continues Duplicitous Campaign To Conflate Counterfeit Drugs With Copyright Infringement posted 07/24/2011, 10:46 AM (Techdirt)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
The more I end up learning about the US Chamber of Commerce and their blatantly dishonest lobbying campaigns, the worse and worse that organization looks. They seem to have no limits in the depths to which they'll stoop to pass bad legislation that favors some of their biggest supporters.
