Sandy Hook and Pre-emptive Civilian Disarmament posted 12/31/2012, 12:07 AM (William Norman Grigg)
[Category: Commentary]
Civilian disarmament advocates insist that the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre illustrates the dangers of inadequately restrictive firearms laws. That assumption is impossible to reconcile with the fact that Connecticut’s state government regards individual firearms ownership not as a right but as a highly conditional privilege subject to revocation without notice, on the whim of an unaccountable bureaucrat.

In 1999, the Connecticut legislature enacted Sec. 29-38c, a measure allowing the police to confiscate firearms from anybody believed to pose “a risk of imminent personal injury to himself … or to other individuals.” All that is required is a sworn complaint “by any state’s attorney or assistant state’s attorney or by any two police officers to any judge of the Superior Court.” A warrant will then be issued allowing police to confiscate the firearms and hold them for up to a year.

The gun confiscation measure was enacted in October 1999, about a year and a half after the last pre-Sandy Hook mass shooting to occur in the Nutmeg State. The assailant, Matthew Beck, was an ex-employee of the Internal Revenue Service who at the time was employed as an accountant at the Connecticut Lottery Corporation.

A few months before the March, 1998 massacre, Beck had been granted a medical leave for stress-related symptoms. His application for a promotion had been denied. Several of his co-workers and relatives had become concerned about his emotional state. Some of his close friends believed that Beck suffered from suicidal depression. But nobody had expected that he would arrive at work one morning, take out a Glock, and start gunning down his supervisors.

As is always the case in episodes of this kind, the shooter ended the rampage on his own terms, killing himself before the police arrived. The on-scene security guard was similarly usele

Have US Police Forces Become Too Militarised? posted 12/31/2012, 12:07 AM (Al Jazeera English)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]

In the last decade, the US department of homeland security, established after the September 11 attacks, has handed out tens of billions of dollars in grants to local police.

Local law enforcement agencies have used that money to acquire battle gear designed for war rather than public safety.

An investigation by the Center for Investigative

Congress Disgracefully Approves the FISA Warrantless Spying Bill for Five More Years, Rejects All Privacy Amendments posted 12/31/2012, 12:04 AM (EFF.org)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
Today, after just one day of rushed debate, the Senate shamefully voted on a five-year extension to the FISA Amendments Act, an unconsitutional law that openly allows for warrantless surveillance of Americans' overseas communications.

The Exploitation of Labor by Government posted 12/31/2012, 12:03 AM (Jeffrey Tucker)
[Category: Commentary]
Considering taking a job with the government? You might want to rethink that. The new survey from Partnership for Public Service paints an ugly picture of job satisfaction at government agencies.

It’s worst of all at place like the departments of Housing and Urban Development, Veterans Affairs, Labor, and Education. We find that only 50-60% of workers are satisfied with their jobs. To put it another way, every other person working in these concrete bunkers is a wreck.

How Government Makes Us Fatter posted 12/31/2012, 12:03 AM (The Freeman)
[Category: Health]
The government, with its accomplices in the food lobby, has helped to make and keep us fat. Through subsidies and misguided food suggestions, Congress, the FDA, and the USDA have made it more difficult for Americans to make smarter dietary decisions.

It’s not as if we don’t care. Americans spend $33 billion annually on weight loss products and services. At any given time, 45 percent of women and 30 percent of men in the United States are trying to lose weight. And yet Americans a

5 Senior Citizens Serving Life Without Parole for Pot posted 12/31/2012, 12:03 AM (Alternet)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Right now, five adults await death in prison for non-violent, marijuana-related crimes. Their names are John Knock, Paul Free, Larry Duke, William Dekle, and Charles “Fred” Cundiff. They are all more than 60 years old; they have all spent at least 15 years locked up for selling pot; and they are all what one might call model prisoners, serving life without parole. As time wrinkles their skin and weakens their bodies, Michael Kennedy of the Trans High Corporation has filed a legal petition with t... (more)

Prince George's police get away with a College Park beating posted 12/31/2012, 12:03 AM (Washington Post)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
ON THE EVENING of March 3, 2010, two Prince George’s County police officers, clad in riot gear and wielding nightsticks, beat an unarmed and unthreatening University of Maryland student named John J. McKenna during rowdy street celebrations in College Park following the university’s men’s basketball victory over Duke. The beating was swift, savage and unprovoked; Mr. McKenna had simply been skipping down the street when he encountered the police who slammed him to the ground and pummeled him. Ei... (more)

Study Says Carbon Nanotubes as Dangerous as Asbestos posted 12/31/2012, 12:02 AM (Scientific American)

Inhaling carbon nanotubes could be as harmful as breathing in asbestos, and its use should be regulated lest it lead to the same cancer and breathing problems that prompted a ban on the use of asbestos as insulation in buildings, according a new study posted online today by Nature Nanotechnology.
