Deputy Serving Papers Shoots Man's Tethered Dog, Got Wrong House
posted 09/01/2012, 2:15 PM (InformationLiberation) [Category: Tyranny/Police State] A Sheriff's deputy serving child support papers walked onto a man's property and shot his tethered dog for allegedly charging at him. The home had a large "beware of dog" sign, but the deputy claims not to have seen it. After murdering the man's dog, he went to serve him child support papers, but it turns out he got the wrong house. The police claim the address was given to them by a court, but the man has lived in his home for five years, and he "d[oes]n't even know who that guy is."
The County Sheriff is defending his deputy's actions, and said he'd "rather have" the man's dog die than "one of [his] deputies needing several surgeries because he got attacked by the dog."
SPARTANBURG, SC -- Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright is defending a deputy who killed a tethered dog on Monday.
"I hate that the man lost his dog, I really do," says Wright. "But I'd rather have that than one of my deputies needing several surgeries because he got attacked by the dog."
The dog's owner, Richard Woodruff, says the deputy could have easily avoided the animal and ignored a warning sign. He also says the deputy really had no business being at his home on Quartermaster Road.
Woodruff says around 11:30 Monday morning, he heard his 8-year old shepherd mix, Diamond, barking. And then he heard a gunshot.
[...]The deputy came to Woodruff's house to serve child support papers on a man who doesn't live at that address.
"I've lived here five years and I don't even know who that guy is," says Woodruff. "They had the wrong house."
Wright says his deputies have to rely on the addresses they are given by the court system when they serve papers.

Encryption is the process of converting data into encoded text produced by an algorithm. To convert the encoded text back to its original form requires either a ‘key’ or tremendous effort. A key is a sequence of numbers that senders typically offer to those they wish to decrypt the protected data. All others must use the ‘tremendous effort’ option.... (more)
I despise the military as an institution. Of course, I share no love with its controlling state apparatus, as well. Those civilians who comprise the state are the controlling thugs of the operation. They are usually hidden and unapproachable. Lying is a big part of their profession, to the point of being pathological. They are usually too self-deluded to realize the immorality of their insti...

Ron Paul's Senior 2012 Campaign Adviser Doug Wead gives WeAreChange an exclusive interview about the Ron Paul RNC delegate controversy, criticism of Jesse Benton, and the real reason Ron Paul didn't attack Mitt Romney during the campaign.

Not attacking Romney was giving up entirely and surrendering the campaign. It was obvious when it happened, the whole fire behind his campaign died after he got cheated in Iowa, stopped with the attack ads, and got put on the defense with the accusations of racism.
People are united by a common enemy, any fascist can tell you that, democracy is about moving mobs and positive campaign ads are worthless. You get a mob behind you by mobbing, they should have attacked Romney for everything he did, and even things he didn't do, that's how the stupid game of politics works, and that's what any two-bit "political strategist" would tell you.
For Benton, or whoever, to say let's lie down and buddy up to Romney, is to say let's give up entirely. Frankly, I don't necessarily buy into this mobbing of Benton, Ron Paul picked him, didn't fire him, and chose to go along with his "strategies," almost all of which involved compromising and establishment boot licking, all to "appear respectable." Then they attacked him on the "racist" newsletters and he "respectably" lost all his support.
You know, one of the dumbest things of his campaign, which no one else would talk about, was his filing suit against the Jon Hustman shill who created that fake racist pro-Ron Paul ad, they tried to sue him for trademark violations in the most bogus lawsuit imaginable, fortunately it was thrown out by a judge who is not a moron. We may have been the only site to criticize him over that suit, I still don't understand the stupid logic behind it. - Chris
A Whitewash of Bush: The Underlying Message of D'Souza's Documentary, 2016: Obama's America
posted 09/01/2012, 2:09 PM (Gary North) [Category: Commentary] The documentary is a neoconservative propaganda film. It strongly favors the United States as the policeman of the world. It criticizes Obama for supposedly pulling out of this role. On what basis? The closing of American military bases and spying bases, now numbering closed to a thousand? No. The reduction of the Pentagon's budget? No evidence yet, but the promise that he will, just you wait. Then what? Because he has not gone to war in Iran and Syria.
Gotta love how you pay trillions in taxes, yet when you actually want a service from the government, they charge you for it! - Chris
