“(CNSNews.com) – The Obama administration is backing legislation that includes regulations requiring U.S. businesses to provide to the government data about employee pay as it relates to the sex, race and national origin of employees.” They call it the “Paycheck Fairness Act.”
Along with their other oppressive new regulations on bank transactions, 1099’s for all […]
The federal government is tightening surveillance of your bank account, spending and borrowing (see: Liberty and Democrats through new financial monitoring provisions of (oddly) the health care law. Now we learn that the stimulus bill signed last year contains detailed requirements for medical record keeping as described in a CNSNews.com article “Obesity Rating for Every […]
Last evening His Assness, the Sun God, graced us with his radiance in hopes of boosting his poll ratings. He informed us that anything that had gone well during the Gulf oil spill was due to his beneficent efforts. HE had produced the sand berms to protect the Louisiana shores. What he […]
The socialist state is closing in on you and me.
1) The health care law requires all transactions totaling $600 or more (cumulatively over a year) to trigger IRS 1099 reports. That means the government will know who you get money from and whom you pay it to.
2) Thousands of new IRS agents will be […]
As mentioned before in this blog, hidden in the health care legislation is a new IRS requirement that will result in a massive paperwork increase for every business in the country. It will cost thousands of dollars and countless hours to comply with this new requirement to report 1099’s for all transactions over $600. […]
What’s new today? Too much to complain about, that’s what:
Greece and all of Europe in a meltdown over excessive government spending on welfare programs and lavish unionized public employee compensation leading to massive public debt. Devaluation of the Euro is likely after they go through their own TARP (including a significant U.S. exposure), […]
How often we hear liberal democrats brag about their efforts to prevent violations of our civil rights — the Patriot Act, Wire Tapping — Edgar Hoover and the Evil Bush Administration, etc.
Well, now we have bills in congress such as the so-called Immigration Reform bill that proposes national ID Cards, and the Financial Reform Bill […]
From Maggies Farm, an article about a Vietnamese government request to “present its case” to Vietnamese-Americans. Congressman Cao of Louisiana, the only Vietnamese-American in the U.S. congress had the rectitude to call the communist tyrants by their right name in his letter of reply. Letter to Deputy Minister Nguyen Than Son.
Communists, whether Vietnamese, Chinese, […]
Chris Horner, author of “How Obama’s Green Policies Will Steal Your Freedom and Bankrupt America” believes that the Cap & Trade bill currently being considered by the Senate will yield the the tax gusher that Obama needs to fund his out-of-control government juggernaut. Bigger and even less visible than the VAT, Cap & Trade […]
So Obama calls out the swat team to suppress and terrorize a local tea party in the vicinity of where he’s speaking? Look at the terrorist tea partiers here. Courtesy of Andrew Brietbart’s Big Government Blog, originally filmed by SharpElbows.Net”
If the government fears the people it is inclined to become repressive. […]
Tucson Tax Day Tea Party was a sunny, mellow affair, very similar in tone to last year’s rally. The bite was still there — throw the bums out, reduce the size of government, reclaim liberties — but perhaps a little exhaustion from loss of the health care battle had set in. These things […]
On trip last week from Tucson to San Diego and back we were stopped eight times at Border Patrol checkpoints. On one of these occasions, my brother driving the car, seeing no sign from the officer that he wanted us to stop, ran through the checkpoint at slow speed. The officer banged his fist […]
We’re tied in knots about a lot of big government tyrannies like nationalization of the health care industry and student loans, nationalizing banking and automobile manufacturing, attempts to regulate CO2 emissions, obesity nannyism, socialist education programs, and massive new taxes. But like the weather, there’s little we can do directly and immediately to resist […]
Repeal it. Kill It. This MONSTER will eat us alive!
Our congress has done us a dirty deed by lies, deceit, bribery and unbelievable arrogance. The health care bill just passed is another step toward socialism and tyranny, plain and simple. This is an example of African pimp style absence of spending restraint — roll […]
Government run health care, several incremental steps beyond Medicare and Social Security is a move toward government control of everything and everyone. As the government takes control of our lives the self-same government is the only source for resolution of our problems when something goes wrong. And as the government becomes ever more […]
Is it believable?
There is speculation that the Pelosi Democrats are planning to use an arcane maneuver called the Slaughter Rule to somehow pass the Senate healthcare bill without even voting on it. This is such a bizarre scenario that I can’t accept it as realistic. But should it happen the country […]
Late in the 19th century some immigrants from Norway arrived in the U.S. One of these came as a cabin boy aboard a Norwegian sailing ship named the Lancing. His name was Thor Ottman Firing whose father was a Norwegian naval officer. Thor Ottman signed on to the sailing vessel to fulfill […]
For more than a decade I’ve been registered as a Libertarian voter. Before the last election I participated in the local Libertarian gatherings. I’ve contributed money to the Libertarian party and voted for Libertarian candidates. So you could argue that I’m a Libertarian.
Before my Libertarian affiliation I was, and still am at […]
From Larry Klayman’s recently published book, “Whores” we get some insight into the ugly political maneuvers that politicians routinely use to provide themselves with loot and political advantages at public expense. We also learn how the political realm includes not only elective office holders, but also the corruption of the judiciary and the bureaucracy […]
Big Brother comes to New Zealand in government requirements for all providers of communications, telephone, internet, web surfing, etc. to install taps that will be accessible to the government.
The measures are the largest expansion of police and SIS surveillance capabilities for decades, and mean that all mobile calls and texts, email, internet surfing and online […]
Amidst the dismal background of hypocrisy about Islamic savagery we’re subject to amnesia about another brutal force in the world — the remaining Communist states.
We’ve been lulled into thinking that China, Vietnam, North Korea, and Cuba are really just harmless “socialist” relics. In the case of China and Vietnam our government and industry regard […]
Two stories, almost too ugly to be true … the British have a nanny Children’s Secretary named Ed Balls. He’s proposing to expand a program characterized as “Sin Bins” wherein closed circuit tv cameras will be installed in 20,000 homes of “the worst families” per a Daily Express article quoted below: (tip to TheUnbrokenWindow.com […]
From time to time someone gives frustration a voice. If you’re as frustrated and depressed about where the country seems to be heading currently, please take time to view this:

Mr. Whittle, for those of […]
The Pelosi-Democrats have done it again. They’ve passed a bill that is designed to hog-tie the U.S. free market to the detriment of us all. This is like Sarbanes-Oxley, the hastily assembled monstrosity that was supposed to address the problem of corporate misconduct, but which instead imposed an ugly burden on small and […]

Yesterday afternoon and evening I spent hours upon hours listening to CSPAN’s broadcast debate and vote on the Pelosi health care legislation from both parties. In addition to having my eyes glaze over after the 999th uttering of “the gentleman from” and “the distinguished gentlemen” it was hard to discern the purpose of the […]
If you haven’t seen this in BigGovernment.com you should take the time to do so. It is the best illustration available of the “cult of personality” that characterizes President Barack Obama’s support.

I’ve been meaning to write an article about what I consider to be the most dangerous invention of civilization — bureaucracy. Without bureaucracy the inquisition would have been impossible, Hitler could not have murdered millions, Lenin would have been a helpless, frustrated old revolutionary blowhard, and Stalin would have been a bitter clerk.

I was tempted to write about the Department of Transportation’s use of $1.0 Billion dollars to make loans to sports car companies, one of which is backed by Al Gore, and manufacturing cars in Finland.
Then I read an article about Social Security, in which, due to ineptitude in the bureaucracy: Social Security Owes ‘Fugitives’ Millions
Here’s a clearly stated video explaining how an ever expanding big-government trough attracts the pigs and corrupts the whole system. The only way to reduce waste and corruption is to remove the boodle from the trough — reduce government to its constitutionally permitted role.
