A Socialist's Paradise

A "Liberal  Paradise" would be a place where everybody has guaranteed employment,   free comprehensive  health care, free education, free food, free housing, free clothing,   free  utilities, and only Law Enforcement has guns.
And believe it or not,  such a place does indeed exist  ……it's called prison.

I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.”
Change the time to the 1930s and the location to Chicago, and you might confuse Reid with one of Al Capone's thugs, threatening a business owner who wouldn't comply with Al's "Protection policy".

A nation of laws?

We were ... once.  Now the Federal Government feels justified in violating those laws any time it wants, and for any purpose.

The "unalienable" rights listed in the Constitution are now, for the most part, just empty words on old parchment.  The Amendments have been carefully turned on their heads to infringe or even forbid what they expressly guarantee!

1 Freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition.
Free speech?   Only if it is trivial or you are not significant. But NOT  if it conflicts with political correctness, or a multitude of infringements imposed by the Feds, who regularly set up "free speech zones" to stifle dissent, as if free speech was a privilege granted only by license from the government, just as it is in Marxist countries.  Consider the man who donated to and  supported President Obama's election six years ago.  Back in 2008 Obama was against gay marriage, and so was this man, who donated $1,000 in 2008 in support of the ballot measure to ban gay marriage.  Obama changed his mind.  The man didn't.   Even more telling is the steps one has to go through in order to survive a "purge" motivated by PC.  One Mozilla staff person remarked "was “doing a fair amount of self-reflection and I am wondering how did I miss it that this would matter more when he was the CEO.”"    That attitude is described exactly by Wikipedia:
except that the person doing the self-criticism got ahead of any personal attacks by jumping the gun, so to speak.   It is amazing how intolerant those who claim to define "tolerance" can be.

The "free" press has, for the most part, censored itself to conform and stay "on message" with the Federal government.  Step outside that boundary and you will find out what James Rosen and the AP learned.

2 Right to keep and bear arms in order to maintain a well regulated militia.

That which "shall not be infringed" is the most infringed Right in the Constitution.  Constitutional Carry is allowed in only five states.  The states with the most restrictive anti-2nd Amendment laws are the states with the highest gun violence.  It seems that some politicians cannot figure out that criminals ignore gun laws and carry concealed in all 50 states, regardless of their restrictive or prohibitive laws.

3 No quartering of soldiers.
I wonder if members of Pres. Obama's "Civilian Security Defense Force" will be called "soldiers"?   If not, then how can the requirement that you room and board them be a violation?   Won't happen?  What other violations of the Constitution that are now regularly taking place did you once consider impossible?  Like the next one...

4 Freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures.
In your wildest imagination did you ever think that the Congress, the "representatives" of the people, would allow a 100 mile zone around the borders of our country, and the international airport terminals, where the 4th Amendment was no longer effective?  TSA VIPR squads have left the air and bus terminals and are now making unannounced searches and seizures on highways all around America, miles outside the "Constitution Free  Zone".  Refuse to allow a search without a warrant and you are charged with "obstruction" and a host of other "pile  on" charges designed to financially affect you even if you are not intimidated.   Well over 1/3rd of all Americans are now without effective 4th Amendment rights.  Nearly ALL of the states along both coasts are in that zone.   Law officers doing the illegal stops took an oath to "protect and defend the Constituion from all enemies, both foreign and domestic" but it apparently never dawns on them that they themselves  have become the "domestic" enemies they swore to fight.   One is forced to ask that if they took their oath to defend the Constitution so lightly, what will they do when their commanders order them to shoot on Americans?   Perhaps the answer is found in their training, which included using practice targets having the images of pregnant women,  the elderly, and even children on them.  Desensitizing?  Perhaps. Maybe it is a technique to cull those officers who had reservations about using the targets from the ranks.   Imagine a  desensitized SWAT team coming to your door at 6AM to exercise a bench warrant issued for a misdemeanor.

5 Right to due process of law, freedom from self-incrimination, double jeopardy.
Among the travesties of the "PATRIOT" Act are the NSA letters and the "special" courts and judges.  Cross examine the witness against you?  Sorry, that's a national security secret.  See the evidence against you?  Sorry, that's a national security secret.   Can't tell anyone else, including your own wife or other family members that you've been charged with a crime?  Even if you haven't committed a crime you can be sent to jail for years just telling your wife about the accusation.  National security.   Meanwhile, without any warrants the NSA has spied on EVERYONE in this country and a lot of the rest of the world.   Since they obviously didn't know about the mass meeting of Al Quade in Yemen a few days ago,  or didn't care until it became public knowledge, why are they spying on us?   Combine the NSA with the SWAT teams being formed by almost every government agency, including the Library of Congress, the EPA, the FDA, etc... and you have the EXACT equivalent of the East German Secret Police:
Before East Germany collapsed one in six East Germans were spying for the government against their friends and families.  Most were forced to do it to avoid torture and imprisonment themselves.  Most Americans will behave the same way.

6 Rights of accused persons, e.g., right to a speedy and public trial.
NSA cases? Not with secret courts and judges.  Trials can now take years.  Many times it is the defendant stretching it out.  Other times it is the State, hoping that the public will forget about the case, and the proprietorial misconduct that often accompanies politically motivated cases.  Prosecutors with personal or political agendas.

8 Freedom from excessive bail, cruel and unusual punishments.
Million dollar bail requirements?  Common.  Setting in jail several years till a trial takes place because you can't afford bail?  Common.
Cruel?  Becoming some thugs "bitch" because the corporate owned prisons are not adequately manned and prisons actually run the prisons?  No so unusual.

9 Other rights of the people.
What other rights?  The current attitude and practice today  is that the only rights one has are those "allowed" (licensed) by the Federal Government.

10 Powers reserved to the states.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
You read that right, and it is not a misquote.  The ONLY powers the United States (Federal government) can have are those delegated to  it by the Constitution!   All other rights belong to the States, except those which the Constitution prohibits the States from having.   That Amendment has been turned on its head.  Under current practice the Federal government has ALL the rights and the States are "allowed" only those rights which the Federal government grants to them.
States are no longer Sovereign, in practice.  To take back their Constitutional rights would require a direct confrontation with the military might of the United States.  For a State to do that would trigger an armed revolution, which would be quickly exploited by extreme Right and Left wing activists.  The Marxist elements within the country, supported by Marxist countries around the world, would quickly come out on top, especially considering how far Left the current Administration is.   If an elected official wanted to destroy this county the best course of action would be that which has been taken at every turn by the current administration. 

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land.

Because of a quirk in the law, atheists have the power to go to federal court simply because a public acknowledgment of religion offends them. Their mere offense can often give them “standing” to file a federal lawsuit.
Thus, an atheist’s temper tantrum has real-world power.

"Players were not compelled to attend church or Bible study, and the university is not paying the volunteer chaplain. So, how could any of these actions “establish” a religion within the meaning of the Establishment Clause?"

Large, corporate Internet Service Providers (ISP) think that THEY own the Internet.

The principle that all Internet content should be treated equally as it flows through cables and pipes to consumers looks all but dead.

Companies like Disney, Google or Netflix will be allowed to pay Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon for special, faster lanes to send video and other content to their customers under new rules to be proposed by the Federal Communications Commission, the agency said on Wednesday.

“If it goes forward, this capitulation will represent Washington at its worst,” said Todd O’Boyle, program director of Common Cause’s Media and Democracy Reform Initiative. “Americans were promised, and deserve, an Internet that is free of toll roads, fast lanes and censorship — corporate or governmental.”

If the new rules deliver anything less, he added, “that would be a betrayal.”

Broadband companies have pushed for the right to build special lanes. Verizon said during appeals court arguments that if it could make those kinds of deals, it would.

"Special Lanes"? 
A given bandwidth can pass only a certain maximum number of TCP packets per second.   Fiber Optic cables can carry hundreds or thousands of times more packets per second than Copper cables.   Rather than replace ancient Copper cable with Fiber Optic down to wall socket in the homes, so that bandwidths would rise to the 10 to 100 GB levels and  higher, the ISPs prefer to  regulate the passage of  Internet Protocol packet, that collection of bytes that make up a normal message unit on the Internet, so that they can continue to maximize their profits on the existing sub 50Mb (Mega, not Giga) bandwidth.  Most connections in the US are under 20Mb, and average around 10Mb or less, even if the consumer was sold a 20Mb connection.  Instead of sqeezing Copper wire bandwidths countries in Europe are blazing a trail in new Internet bandwidths: 1.4 Terabites

  How will they "slow down" the non-special packets, since they can't "speed up" the special ones?  There are many  sections of an TCP packet that can be modified to indicate to the ISP which packets get passed on and which do not.  An ISP can't "slow down" a packet, it can only pass it or delete it.   Every packet has the IP address of both the sender and receiver.  When a packet is sent the receiver sends back an acknowledgement packet so that the sender can send the next packet in the sequence.  The ISP could just kill every second or third,  fourth or fifth Acknowledge package sent from the receiver, identified by the IP address in the packet, which would effectively slow down the packet exchange rate  between that sender and receiver by 50%, or 67% or 75% or 80% of its normal rate.   To the sender and receiver their connection would be slower.   There are many other ways such filtering could be done.

One thing is for sure.  It will make Internet bandwidths much slower  for all but those willing to spend even MORE money than they are paying now for Internet service.   A friend of mine in France pays $40/month for a 40Mb Internet connection, 200 channels of TV and a phone service.  That same service here in the US costs FOUR times as much, except that the Internet bandwidth is only 20Mb.

What makes this fiasco even MORE egregious is what took place in the early 1990's here in America.   When telcoms and cable companies refused pleas to replace Copper wire with much faster optical cables, my city government decided to install their own fiber optic.  I watched as they laid the fiber optic in my yard and brought the connection up to the existing cable box next to my house.  It was never used.  The cable and telcoms went to Congress and complained.  Congress, after receiving the appropriate palm lubricants, agreed and passed the 1995 Communications Act, which made what my city was doing illegal.  The act also gave $200 Billion to the cable and telcoms to continue the laying of fiber optic cable.  However, the act contained no penalty clause for non-performance, so the telcoms and cable companies just pocketed the money and continued extracting profits from the Copper cables.  So, Americans, we've already paid for what we  have yet to receive.  I suspect that if we ever get fiber optic cable to our wall sockets we'll have to pay for it again, both in laying it down and it using it.
Planned new rules would allow an Internet provider to negotiate separately with content companies and charge them for priority service.

Simmons, the former CIA officer, criticized the Obama administration on the familiar refrain of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton exclaiming in a Senate hearing that it mattered little why the Benghazi facilities were struck.
'They believed they were going to be saved, that they were going to be rescued, but they weren't,' Simmons said of the four Americans who died.

'I know who made the decision, in my heart of hearts, to leave our war fighters there and be blown up. And then to have one of the most powerful politicians in our country sit there and say, "What difference does it make?" – should be an alarm bell for all Americans.
America chose al-Qaeda over Muammar Gaddafi and ignored his offer to abdicate amid civil war, says the Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a group of former top military brass and CIA insiders.

It all started with NAFTA, the shipping of factories and high paying jobs overseas. Both Pres. Clinton AND Rush Limbaugh for all for NAFTA.

Now we see the result.  A workforce with a wage base so low that the Federal and State governments will NOT be able to collect enough income taxes to support maintenance of the existing infrastructure.

The low wage base will also jeopardize the future of existing retirees, since Congress, in their minuscule wisdom, saw fit to raid the Social Security coffers to fund socialist give-away programs.

To make matters MUCH worse, the Federal government is encouraging the reverse of outsourcing jobs -- allowing a flood of illegal immigrants into the country to take even the low paying jobs.

This cannot be  by  accident, or failure of forward-looking  vision.  Those that have created this travesty knew exactly what they are doing, and they hope to benefit politically (and folks like Limbaugh financially)  from it by giving the vote to illegals.
For Americans who can’t find jobs, the booming demand for temp workers has been a path out of unemployment, but now many fear it’s a dead-end route.
