I have a problem with all of this crap. I have a problem with going to baseball games and being wanded. To my knowledge, the biggest disaster that happened at a game was either a riot, a structural collapse or the 1989 SF earthquake during the world series. We have to do it? Why? The movie 2 minute warning? Then you have the metal detectors at court houses. Why? Because many lawyers are in the business of screwing people. .When the law ceases to be applied correctly, people get mad. Is this to protect us or the lawyers? Then there are the red light cameras. This is a civil suit, not a criminal suit. Damages, penalty clause or actual? Look up Penalty Clause in Blacks Law Dictionary. Look up Nudum Pactum Orito. Appeal the claim in court and ask them to show their damages. This definition applies to fines as well as private contracts. |
This said, there should be some care and control dealing with air planes, but how much? There should also be an attitude of the passengers that the plane belongs to them and there isn't anyone going to hijack it. The Airlines should find out what is on the planes before they are boarded. I didn't like the system before all this crap came down and to be honest, I didn't think I was going to get through Newark when I was there in 1999, because the sensors were giving a false alarm and wouldn't stop. I don't have a metal rod in me, so I am clueless as to what caused that read. The idea of a police state disturbs me much more than terrorism.
Wish I could attend today Karl. I will play it back, but I might get my charger and take an hour off at 3:30. I am sure you are going to tell us to grow some balls. I find it absurd that we write history about keeping the world safe for democracy while cashing several hundred thousand lives and maiming millions physically and mentally, then we sit here and let them boil us like frogs in a pan of cold water with the fire blazing under the pan. All the patriotism is useless if we let the government usurp our rights under the rule of necessity. People in general don't understand that the Constitution didn't grant rights, but prohibited the government from usurping them. There were to be no Titles of Nobility, in accord with the idea that all men were created equal.
For reference, you might read the latest Michael Hudson interview that I am sure is on his website. He contends that the bankers are using the Fed credit to inflate foreign assets and buy up the minerals and such in these countries. Dollars flow in, then dollars flow out and collapse the domestic currencies. The US became great before they resorted to this kind of looting, set up at the end of World War II. This is behind the majority of messes we are in around the world today, including the financial crisis we have. They don't seem to care the next bubble burst will be worse. Have they taken so much of our **** that w we don't have the will to resist?
