Govt Shutdown & Obamacare Standoff

Obama: “I Will Not Negotiate”...Blah Blah Blah, its the Republicans.(NPR)

“It is abundantly clear that Harry Reid wants a shutdown. And now he’s gotten the shutdown that the wants.” - Senator Ted Cruz..More Blah Blah Blah.

Everyone throws blame at each other. In the meantime, health care exchanges are not working. People are not informed about plans even if they wanted to participate in the scheme.

From web site

"We have a lot of visitors on the site right now.
Please stay on this page.

We're working to make the experience better, and we don’t want you to lose your place in line. We’ll send you to the login page as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience!"

Perhaps they could have used Harry Reid's face or Obama's likeness

Just so the guys dont feel left out.

Many Americans will opt opt of Obamacare. Many have lost their jobs or had hours cut and many have been told they will now be covered by Obamacare instead of employer provided healthcare.

By the way, like it or not, Americans opposed to Obamacare can opt out, there are exemptions.

Per the web site, you can be exempt from Obamacare under the following circumstances.

Exemptions from the payment

Under certain circumstances, you won’t have to make the individual responsibility payment. This is called an “exemption.”

You may qualify for an exemption if:

  • You’re uninsured for less than 3 months of the year
  • The lowest-priced coverage available to you would cost more than 8% of your household income
  • You don’t have to file a tax return because your income is too low (Learn about the filing limit.)
  • You’re a member of a federally recognized tribe or eligible for services through an Indian Health Services provider
  • You’re a member of a recognized health care sharing ministry
  • You’re a member of a recognized religious sect with religious objections to insurance, including Social Security and Medicare
  • You’re incarcerated, and not awaiting the disposition of charges against you
  • You’re not lawfully present in the U.S.

Hardship exemptions

If you have any of the circumstances below that affect your ability to purchase health insurance coverage, you may qualify for a “hardship” exemption:

  1. You were homeless.
  2. You were evicted in the past 6 months or were facing eviction or foreclosure.
  3. You received a shut-off notice from a utility company.
  4. You recently experienced domestic violence.
  5. You recently experienced the death of a close family member.
  6. You experienced a fire, flood, or other natural or human-caused disaster that caused substantial damage to your property.
  7. You filed for bankruptcy in the last 6 months.
  8. You had medical expenses you couldn’t pay in the last 24 months.
  9. You experienced unexpected increases in necessary expenses due to caring for an ill, disabled, or aging family member.
  10. You expect to claim a child as a tax dependent who’s been denied coverage in Medicaid and CHIP, and another person is required by court order to give medical support to the child. In this case, you do not have the pay the penalty for the child.
  11. As a result of an eligibility appeals decision, you’re eligible for enrollment in a qualified health plan (QHP) through the Marketplace, lower costs on your monthly premiums, or cost-sharing reductions for a time period when you weren’t enrolled in a QHP through the Marketplace.
  12. You were determined ineligible for Medicaid because your state didn’t expand eligibility for Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.

If you cannot afford Obamacare or still want to opt out but do not qualify to opt out, you can pay the fine, its cheaper than paying the premiums and you if you do get sick and need it, well sign up for it in the ER if you have to. They cannot deny you after all for preexisting conditions.

Here are the fines per the same web site:

Starting 2014, most people must have health coverage or pay a fee (the “individual shared responsibility payment”). You can get an exemption in certain cases.
The individual shared responsibility payment

If you can afford health insurance but choose not to buy it, you must pay a fee known as the individual shared responsibility payment.

The fee in 2014 is 1% of your yearly income or $95 per person for the year, whichever is higher. The fee increases every year. In 2016 it is 2.5% of income or $695 per person, whichever is higher.

In 2014 the payment for uninsured children is $47.50 per child. The most a family would have to pay in 2014 is $285.

You make the payment when you file your 2014 taxes, which are due in April 2015.

Call Now: Tell Congress to Reject CISPA -52 hours left to stop CISPA

Call Now: Tell Congress to Reject CISPA

The House is about to vote on the "cybersecurity" bill known as CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. Despite recent amendments, CISPA still features dangerously vague language that could put your personal information in the hands of military organizations like the National Security Agency.

While CISPA passed through the House last year, it failed to be enacted after a veto threat. This year's bill fails to solve the fundamental privacy and civil liberties problems with the misguided law. Please speak out! We’re asking individuals to call Representatives and follow up with a tweet.

Click here if you’re not in the United States.
Suggested script:

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent of [Congressperson's name].

Please oppose H.R.624, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, also known as CISPA. It is a misguided bill that violates my privacy. I believe that the right cybersecurity solution does not involved sacrificing the privacy rights of Internet users.

Thank you for your consideration, and for acting against this dangerous bill.

Spread the word!

Excellent! Now that you've made the call, use our Twitter tool to tell key members of Congress to stand up for your privacy and vote NO on CISPA and to help spread the word.

Here's where we are on Obama's gun control proposals

Here's where we are on Obama's gun control proposals:

Contact your senator. Ask him to oppose any motion to proceed

Gun Owners of America

Here's where we are on Obama’s gun control proposals:

  • Today, the Nut-Left Democrats on the Senate Judiciary voted to report the Feinstein gun ban –which could ban between 50% and 80% of guns and magazines in circulation today. It may not even get a majority in the Senate – much less the 60 votes needed to pass. And it is being pushed primarily to allow anti-gun Democrats from pro-gun states to pretend to be pro-gun.
  • Tuesday, the Judiciary Committee passed, by a 10-to-8 vote, the universal gun registry bill. Chief sponsor Chuck Schumer has been unable to achieve Republican support from anyone other than the anti-gun Illinois Republican Mark Kirk. Therefore, unless another Republican sells out at the last minute, we believe we can successfully filibuster this ill in the full Senate.
  • Tuesday, by a vote of 14-to-4, the Judiciary Committee also reported a Boxer bill that would increase, by $10 million, the funding for an existing school safety program. The money could be used for armed guards, as the NRA proposes, or it could be used for an anti-gun study. It is therefore neither inherently "pro-gun' nor "anti-gun." We have said we would oppose proceeding to Boxer if it is a vehicle for votes on other anti-gun measures – but that we would not object to its passage, without amendment, by "unanimous consent."
  • This brings us to the central battlefield: Last week, the committee reported, by a vote of 11-to-7, the Veterans Gun Ban, S. 54. The lone GOP vote in favor came from Chuck Grassley, who indicated he would oppose the bill on the Senate floor unless it was improved from the committee-reported version.

As we see it, the chief strategic objective is now to keep gun control votes from coming to the Senate floor by opposing the "motion to proceed" to any bill which is going to be used as a vehicle for gun votes.

That would certainly mean that senators should oppose moving to proceed to universal gun registries or the Veterans Gun Ban. But it also means that we oppose moving to proceed to so-called non-controversial bills, such as Boxer, if those bills are being brought up as a vehicle for anti-gun amendments.

ACTION: Contact your senator by Clicking Here. Ask him to oppose any motion to proceed – by filibuster if necessary – to the Feinstein gun ban, the universal gun registry bill, the Veterans Gun Ban (S. 54), or to any other piece of legislation being brought up as a vehicle for votes on these anti-gun proposals.

Harry Reid Prepares to Annihilate Second Amendment - TAKE ACTION

Whether the Semi-Auto Ban Passes May
Depend on What Happens to the Senate Rules

McCain may be working to stab us in the back

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is still trying to rig the Senate rules so that President Barack Obama can get his anti-gun and anti-Constitution agenda passed.

But first, here’s some good news.

GOA activists like yourself are having an impact!

Prior to the New Year, the reports coming out of Washington, DC indicated that Senator Harry Reid was going to nuke the filibuster on the first day of the new Congress (which would have been yesterday).

But Politico, which is one of the official papers of Capitol Hill, reported yesterday that Reid still doesn't have the votes -- despite having a Democrat majority.

The Politico headline blared: "Reid expected to Postpone Filibuster Rule Change: May buy time for a bipartisan bill."

This is somewhat good news, as it means that Reid still can't cram a rules change down our throats, limiting the ability that pro-gun Senators have to filibuster (or kill) anti-gun legislation.

But here's the bad news: Reid is working on a "compromise" where certain RINO's like John McCain will help Reid do his bidding.

What's at stake?

Well, The Blaze reported yesterday that Vice President Joe Biden “guaranteed” to ailing Boston Mayor Tom Menino that sweeping gun control legislation would be passed by the end of January.

How sweeping?

A quick look at Feinstein’s semi-auto ban legislation suggests that up to 75% of all handguns currently in circulation would be banned, along with as much as 50% of all long guns.

Depending on its configuration, the AR-15 you already have would probably be treated like a machine gun. You would have to be fingerprinted, background checked by the FBI, and undergo a six-month license application process to keep it. And when you die, the government will seize it.

If you don’t get an NFA license, you can expect the SWAT teams to descend on your house.

But, you ask, how could such rabidly anti-gun legislation ever get past Congress? Well, legislators could simply follow the path they took on the fiscal cliff, where they bludgeoned a minority of Senators into accepting several, coerced short-cuts in regard to the Senate rules.

However, these forced short-cuts would now become mandated and set in stone if Harry Reid & Co. get their way.

Under one new “compromise” being floated on Capitol Hill, the Senate would change its rules so that it could pass a gun ban with only 50 votes (plus the vote of Vice President Joe Biden). Or legislators could write the gun ban in a House-Senate conference committee on a "must-pass" bill, employing a tactic that is frequently used to pass controversial legislation. Democrats like West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, Nevada’s Harry Reid, and Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey -- who will not have to run for reelection for a while -- will cast “courageous” votes for this gun ban.

And it will hit the House with enormous momentum -- momentum which House Speaker John Boehner (who has already called for a dialogue on gun control) may not have the courage to resist.

But the first step will be to demolish the Senate rules so that gun control only requires 50 votes -- or so that gun control can be inserted in a House-Senate conference report on a must-pass bill. And this is where John McCain comes in.

GOA working with Senator Rand Paul to preserve the filibuster

McCain was irritated at Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who worked with Gun Owners of America on a variety of pro-gun issues that slowed down his defense funding bill. So McCain would not lose any sleep if his rules “compromise” diminished our ability to kill anti-gun legislation in the future.

McCain is now working with Leftist anti-gun Senator Carl Levin on a series of rules changes to make gun control a lot easier to pass.

The first McCain-Levin rules change would make it impossible to fight -- what's known in Washington as -- the "motion to proceed." Remember ObamaCare? Our last real shot to kill ObamaCare was by filibustering the "motion to proceed" to that anti-gun legislation. Once the motion was adopted, the bill became amendable and Harry Reid could play “let’s-make-a-deal.” So this change would eliminate our last real opportunity to set up a roadblock and keep anti-gun legislation from even being considered.

The second McCain-Levin rules change would make it easier to add gun control to a bill in conference. Currently, senators can block a House-Senate conference from considering an anti-gun bill. But if the McCain proposals are adopted, a "must-pass" bill could be sent to conference ... amended in conference with a draconian gun ban ... and then sent back to the House and the Senate on a take-it-or-leave-it basis.

McCain will try to tell you that that inserting a gun ban into a bill that is sitting in a House-Senate conference would be outside the “scope of conference.” But that would be a lie, because as any Senator knows, "scope of conference” rules are never followed. For example, the Gramm-Rudman spending guidelines were written in conference from the ground up.

The third McCain-Levin rules change would block any amendments except for those offered by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell or Floor Manager John McCain. All other senators would be left out in the cold.

This McCain-Levin package must be stopped.

We are currently working with Senator Rand Paul, who is planning to offer a GOA-originated amendment requiring a two-thirds vote in the Senate before any anti-gun measure can be passed.

We know. We know. If it were up to us, gun control would not be able to be passed with 100 votes. But we need to propose something which will pass the Senate.

So we need your help in opposing the McCain package and supporting the Paul amendment.

ACTION: Click here to contact your Senators. Demand that they (1) oppose the McCain-Levin package to make gun control easier to pass, and (2) support the Rand Paul amendment to require a two-thirds vote to enact gun control.

The Fight for our Gun Rights to Continue through the Christmas Holidays

Gun Owners of America


Gun Owners of AmericaThe Fight for our Gun Rights to Continue
through the Christmas Holidays
GOA makes a great stocking stuffer!

“[GOA’s] Rhetoric Signals Tough Road for Legislation” -- Roll Call, December 18, 2012

Gun Owners of America has, literally, been working around the clock this week. From speaking to media around the nation (and around the world), to briefing congressmen on Capitol Hill, GOA lobbyists and staff are providing the policy elites the “bullet points” they need to combat the approaching onslaught against our rights.

We told you yesterday about the Piers Morgan debate on CNN which you can watch here.

If you still haven’t seen it, you’re missing a heck of a debate.

GOA’s Facebook page lit up with all kinds of kudos for the way GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt man-handled Morgan:

* “I'm a proud member of GOA and this was a great debate.” -- Freddy Kasprzykowski

* “Bravo Larry!! You wrecked that moron.” -- Dennis Walker

* “I was absolutely inspired by Larry's willingness to be the first pro-gun voice to face the liberal lynch mob. Joined the GOA today, and damned proud of it. Do the same, everyone! If there is a time to join, this is it!” -- Terry Threlfall, Jr.

This is a great time to join!

If you are already a GOA member, why not offer your family members or friends a gift subscription to Gun Owners of America?

Click here to order a gift membership and print out a gift certificate that will make a good Christmas stocking stuffer!

One savvy gun owner has already bought Piers Morgan a gift membership in GOA so he can get educated on the issues. That’s no joke. Piers Morgan is one of the newest GOA members, thanks to the generosity of this “Secret Santa.”

So, if you really want to help educate (and annoy) some of your liberal friends, you might consider following suit!

Thank you for standing with us this year.


The hysteria over Obama/Soetoro's new Executive order

The hysteria over Obama/Soetoro's new Executive-order
by Devvy Kidd
March 18, 2012

I must have received 200 emails about the EO issued by the putative president declaring martial law is on the way and no election in November.

This one is typical:

"This Obama EO has gone way beyond Communism or a Police State ! This is total insanity ! It's done. We waited ourselves into tyrannical oblivion."

Many read the EO and are concerned as we should be from anything generated by the Red House.

When I first read it, I thought Soetoro didn't write it because he doesn't really concern himself with much except playing basketball, raising money, his Wednesday night music sessions or Hollyweird friends stopping in, and second, it's beyond his abilities in my humble opinion.

In any event, WND has come out with an article about it since the panic has spread like flash mobs:

Executive-order panic: Martial law in U.S.?

"As it turns out, Obama’s executive order is nearly identical to EO 12919, issued by President Clinton on June 7, 1994, which itself was an amendment to EO 10789, issued in 1958 by President Eisenhower, and which in fact, was later amended by EO 13286, issued in 2003 by George W. Bush."

Rest at link above.

As for the issue of martial law, I highly recommend people read the column below by Dr. Edwin Vieira, Ph.D., J.D.

I was under several misconceptions about martial law until I read Edwin's usual scholarly analysis.

Those sending out emails it's time to get your guns locked and loaded, a coup is underway, etc., should get the facts about martial law before they blow a gasket and do something foolish.

A Primer on Martial Law


E-Verify: De Facto National ID and the End of Privacy

E-Verify: De Facto National ID and the End of Privacy
By John W. Whitehead

As technology grows more sophisticated and the American government and its corporate allies further refine their methods of keeping tabs on citizens, those of us who treasure privacy increasingly find ourselves engaged in a struggle to maintain our freedoms in the midst of the modern surveillance state.

The latest attack on our right to anonymity and privacy comes stealthily packaged in the form of so-called job protection legislation. Introduced by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) in June 2011, H.R. 2885 (formerly H.R. 2164), the "Legal Workforce Act," is being marketed as a way to fight illegal immigration and "open up millions of jobs for unemployed Americans and legal immigrants." However, this proposed federal law is really little more than a Trojan horse, a backdoor attempt by the powers-that-be to inflict a de facto National ID card on the American people.

Created under the auspices of securing the borders and preventing illegal immigrants from being hired for "American" jobs, E-Verify challenges the rights of the individual, the rights of labor and the rights of industry. As such, this is not a left or right issue. Anyone who values civil liberties should be alarmed. In fact, E-Verify is being opposed by various civil liberties groups such as the ACLU, American Library Association, The Rutherford Institute, Liberty Coalition and others.

If approved by Congress, this legislation would make the federal government the final authority on who gets hired by American businesses and in the process create a bureaucratic nightmare for already over-burdened and over-regulated small business owners. In a nutshell, H.R. 2885 requires all employers to submit potential employees' names, Social Security numbers and other data to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for authorization before the employees can start work. The data would then be run through E-Verify, a government-run database and employment identification verification system.

In other words, the E-Verify system would require all those wanting to be employed by American companies to register the credentials of their citizenship in a government database. What this means, of course, is that in order to be able to verify an applicant's legitimacy, the government would first have to build a massive database to store the biographical information of the entire working population in the United States--a huge undertaking with numerous pitfalls and security flaws, as we have seen with many other government databases. If you think unemployment is a problem now, just wait until your employment hinges on getting government clearance. Under this legislation, if a worker's information is incorrect in E-Verify, he or she can't work until the problem is resolved.

Furthermore, due to the sensitive information contained in the database, it would be a huge target for hackers and identity thieves, while doing little to curb the flow of illegal immigration or illegal immigrants getting jobs. Indeed, with a stolen or faked identity, anyone could bypass the system and secure employment.

This legislation poses even greater threats to privacy, free speech and free association and potentially hinders Americans' ability to travel freely. Because the E-Verify system would apply to everyone eligible to work in the United States and will grow to include biometrics such as fingerprints, DNA and iris scans, it will be used for a host of other purposes by the intelligence community, law enforcement and corporate America.

Private employers will become extensions of the government in that they will eventually be required to verify whether employees are delinquent in the payment of federal, state or local taxes, in compliance with child support or alimony decrees, on a terrorist watch list or convicted or even accused of a crime. Employers, thus, would be enlisted as de facto law enforcement officers for the federal government. Furthermore, errors in the verification process would be practically immune from timely legal redress in violation of constitutional tenets of due process.

Recently, the prohibition in H.R. 2885 on using the E-Verify database for purposes other than employment verification was replaced with a new section that allows the system to be used to "protect critical infrastructure." That term is broadly defined and it's not clear what this would mean in practice--whether screening air travelers or controlling access to federal facilities--but it clearly signals a huge expansion of the program. In one paragraph in the legislation the government states that E-Verify will not be used just for employment but also can be used for verifying identify for national security. What this means is that American citizens would have to have their information correct in E-Verify not just to get a job but also potentially if they need to access "critical infrastructure"--i.e., any kind of public transportation. Ironically, this language comes right after the paragraph saying there will be no National ID card.

Despite assurances to the contrary, E-Verify will become a de facto National ID system. Such a database with vast pools of personal information directly tied to individuals shared across a multitude of government agencies would give the government an alarming amount of control over the average citizen. If government officials so chose, they could easily track any person who had registered in the E-Verify system for whatever reason.

Not only will government agencies know everything about American citizens, but private corporations will become policemen for this system. The E-Verify system--part of a broader trend in American politics, namely, the collusion of government and corporate interests--will allow government and corporate officials to repress dissidents and suspects simply by restricting their access to basic services. Once all of your information is tied together and placed in one grand database, any government or corporate agency can wreak havoc on your life. You might try to buy groceries only to find that your credit card has been denied. You might apply for a job, at ten, twenty, fifty corporations only to find that, despite your being very qualified, there just isn't any room for you at the company. Without a job, you might be forced to tap into the welfare system, only to find that your application was denied. Your property might be confiscated. When you try to move somewhere else and start anew, you might find you can't board the plane because you're on a no-fly list. Make no mistake, these are the tactics of a totalitarian society.

However, the idea of singling out and "identifying" individuals for the sake of national security is nothing new. National identity cards also carry with them a historic risk of oppression and persecution, as they have been used to identify and track ethnic, racial and religious groups and have facilitated oppression and persecution against these groups. And as recently as the 1990s, identity cards played an instrumental role in one of the worst genocides of the twentieth century, second only perhaps to the Holocaust.

With the introduction of an identity card that contains information such as ethnic origin, government agencies will be able to identify people on the basis of race or religion with considerable ease. For example, in the months following the 9/11 attacks, Muslim men from Arab or South Asian countries were rounded up on the basis of religion and ethnicity and detained indefinitely in the United States, often without access to an attorney or a judge. Imagine how much more far-reaching that government detention program might have been with a National ID in place.

Various laws have been enacted over time to guard against unreasonable intrusions by the government into our private lives. One such law is the Privacy Act, which was passed by Congress in 1974 and prohibits the government from forming a database. However, although the fear was that such a database could constitute an invasion of privacy, the law only prevents the government from creating a database, not accessing an already existing database.

At the time the Privacy Act was passed, Congress had no reason to suspect that private corporations would ever have the desire or means to create such databases. The emergence of data collection corporations, however, has enabled government intelligence and police agencies to circumvent the law and gain information on private citizens with the click of a button. Although such tactics clearly contradict the spirit of privacy laws intended to guard against government abuse, it is technically legal for the government to gain access to these databases. Government officials have taken full advantage of this loophole. Due to the fact that these databases are owned and operated by private corporations, they are relatively unregulated and fall outside the scrutiny of privacy watchdog groups. Reports of security breaches at numerous data brokerage companies only serve to fan concerns about the lack of oversight and regulation.

Rest assured that were Congress to approve this E-Verify legislation, it would constitute the ultimate end-run around the Privacy Act and open the door to a National ID. Thus, we have reached a crossroads. Either we limit the reach and power of the government (often in collusion with corporate power) or privacy as we have known it will become extinct.

It’s Possible.

Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University combined three
technologies – facial recognition software, cloud computing, and social
networks – to identify people both online and offline. The team performed three
separate experiments

  1. People using pseudonyms on an online dating site were
    identified by comparing Facebook profile photos, which are publicly displayed,
    to the profiles on the dating site. Using facial recognition software to match
    up the photos, 10 percent of the dating site’s users were identified.

  2. Students walking on campus were identified by comparing
    real-time photos taken with a webcam to Facebook profile photos. The facial
    recognition software identified the students 31 percent of the time.

  3. Using only a photo of a person’s face and information
    publicly available online, the researchers figured out the person’s birth date,
    personal interests, and Social Security number.

Many individuals share a tremendous amount of information about
themselves online. As facial recognition software improves, it will inevitably
be easier to link this personal information to you just by taking your photo.

The Threat to Your

Facial recognition technology – especially as the technology
becomes more sophisticated – may be one of the gravest privacy threats of our
time. It has the potential to remove the anonymity we expect in crowds and most
public places. There are the obvious “chilling effects” it could have on
political demonstrations and speech, concerns being monitored by civil
liberties advocates like the ACLU,
EPIC, and EFF.  However, this technology will also very
likely be used in greater capacity in the commercial sector to further target
consumers for advertising and discriminatory pricing purposes.

According to
an article published recently by the Los Angeles Times
, several companies
have already launched, or plan to launch soon, facial recognition technology
that will be used for in-store digital displays and kiosks to make product
suggestions based on the demographics gleaned from your face.  This might include your sex, your age range,
and your race or ethnicity.  

However, the article fails to mention the possibility that
facial recognition software will likely be used for more than demographic
targeting. In his book Niche
, Joseph Turow, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, explains
how companies are using increasingly sophisticated market segmentation methods
to offer different prices to different people, a practice known as price
discrimination. The more detailed the profile a company can build on you, the
more accurately it can estimate how much you are willing to spend on a product.

Professor Turow focused primarily on online data collection,
but as the Carnegie Mellon study illustrates, facial recognition technology
makes it possible to connect your offline identity with your online identity
without necessarily obtaining your consent. This may allow for price
discrimination the moment you walk into a store. As facial recognition
technology advances and the number of consumers using social media continues to
increase, it’s not far-fetched to imagine a scenario where, for example, the
kiosk mentioned above identifies you based on information found online. What if
you then receive not only product recommendations, but also prices for those
products based on who it thinks you are? The possibility of such applications for
facial recognition technology are disturbing, to say the least. 

What You Can Do.

We believe  individuals must have control over their personal
information.  This includes who has your
information, how it is kept, and what can be done with it.
 Facial recognition software can enable companies
to identify and target you without your knowledge or permission. Privacy laws
in the U.S. have not kept pace with technology, and we are aware of no laws specifically
governing commercial use of facial recognition technology.  This is unless, of course, a company states
in a privacy policy that it does not use this technology when in fact it does.

Here are three things you can do to fight for your privacy:

  1. Educate yourself. The most important thing you can do is learn
    more about the technology and its privacy implications, so that you are an
    educated and informed consumer. To stay abreast of facial recognition and other
    emerging privacy issues, visit our
    Privacy Today webpage

  2. Support legislation that defends privacy. Write to your elected representatives
    to ask for stronger privacy protections against facial recognition
    technology and other emergent technologies that you believe may be used to
    invade your privacy. Many privacy laws are created on the state level, so stay
    informed and vote for better privacy protection.

  3. Avoid companies with poor privacy practices. When possible,
    don't do business with companies that you believe collect unnecessary
    personal information or fail to protect that information. Take your money
    elsewhere - and let the companies know why.

Coalition Letter to Protect Online Privacy

Coalition Letter to Protect Online Privacy
Posted by James Leroy Wilson is part of a coalition of 30 organizations expressing privacy concerns in bill H.R. 1981, the "Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act."

Section 4 of the bill would, for the first time, "force companies that provide Internet access to keep large volumes of records on their customers." Contrary to the title of the bill, "the records would involve all Internet users everywhere and they would be available to law enforcement for any purpose."

This is an invasion of the privacy of "hundreds of millions of Americans who have no connection to the sexual exploitation of children whatsoever."

This is why we sent a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith and Ranking Member John Conyers opposing this provision.

You may see the letter here and read it below:

generating records – what we read, where we go, who our friends are. If those records must
always be saved for future use, they become a persistent and pervasive assault on our privacy and an irresistible temptation to law enforcement. That is why best practices in privacy demand the deletion of records as soon as they are no longer necessary – exactly the opposite of the mandate of H. R. 1981.

Existing laws are wholly insufficient in protecting against access to such records. As this
Committee has recognized in previous hearings, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act
(ECPA) has not been substantially updated since 1986, while the type and detail of records have increased dramatically since that time. The data retention mandate of H.R. 1981 would
exacerbate ECPA’s problems, making records available and identifiable for even longer periods of time.

For all of these reasons, we urge the committee to withhold approval of H.R. 1981 in any
form containing section 4 or any other data retention mandate.

Don't Vote for a debt ceiling increase!

Posted by James Leroy Wilson

Before this message is through, we'll be announcing's NEW Agenda campaign. It's a campaign that is so important that it will join, in priority, the Read the Bills Act and the One Subject at a Time Act.

But first, let me tell you about the greatest opportunity we've ever had, in our lifetimes, to balance the budget and actually Downsize DC. Imagine...

It's the fourth quarter, with two minutes to go. Your favorite team has the lead, the ball, and four downs. The other team has no timeouts. You know the quarterback must "snap and kneel" a couple of times, and you win the game.

But then, the quarterback calls the count, takes the snap, turns around and heaves the ball backwards into his own end zone. The entire offense just stands there, watching as the defensive players race down to recover the ball -- and they do. They get a touchdown! You lose the game.

That scenario is absurd. Who would throw obvious victory away? The Washington Elephants would.

For decades, they've made an art out of tearing defeat from the clenched jaws of victory.

This time, the story is that the Washington Elephants, better known as the Republican members of Congress, are EAGER to...

* Continue massive deficit spending for years,
* Increase the debt ceiling by trillions, and
* Constitutionally guarantee we have a Leviathan State, forever.

And the worst part of it is, YOU might be encouraging them to throw away the game! 

Right now, all "good Republicans" on Capitol Hill, and so many of our normal, organizational allies in the budget battles, have signed on to a plan called Cut, Cap, and Balance.

* Cut in Washington-speak, doesn't mean actual cuts. It means that the Democrats must agree to reduce the increases planned for their favored social programs.
* Cap, to these Republicans, means a spending limit law for future budgets. That sounds good, until you realize that in exchange for spending CAPS in the FUTURE, they'll increase the debt ceiling CAP in the PRESENT. 
* Balance means an amendment to the Constitution, which permanently enshrines 18% of GDP as the size of our federal government.

Ratifying a Balanced Budget Amendment is hard. It's a diversion. And it isn't necessary. The Washington Elephants, who claim they understand their election mandate to tackle the debt problem, are throwing away the game.

All they have to do is take a knee. Quite literally, they have to "do nothing." That is, &quot;Don't Vote"... for a debt ceiling increase.

That's it!

Heck, given that they control an overwhelming majority in the House, it shouldn't even come up for a vote. And they have the numbers to stop it in the Senate with a filibuster.

Isn't that easier than a Balanced Budget Amendment? After all, capping the debt for good would mean a balanced budget.

Cap the Debt = An Instant End to Deficit Spending

Just like that, cuts would need to be made. Lots of cuts. But it's not going to happen.

Not because it shouldn't. Not because it couldn't. There's a Downsize DC consensus right now. The public is in favor of a cap.

That still leaves an exorbitant amount collected in taxes. Could we attain sufficient support for a more-Constitutional budget? I think that an organization with the right plan and the necessary resources could build that support. 

Interestingly, there's only one national, activist organization left holding the line (joined by just a couple media figures). has been sending messages for several weeks now, saying "No deal. Cap the Debt." Here are a few examples from five recent Dispatches...

* Why A Debt Ceiling Is Better Than A Balanced Budget Amendment   
* Cap the Debt: How Congress Can Learn From Truman   
* Do You Want a Theoretical Balanced Budget Many Years from Now, or a Real One Today?  

* How Deficits Are Making You Poorer  
* "Cut, Cap, and Balance" Means Leviathan State, Forever

We've sent so many messages on this subject that we've fatigued our subscriber list. This month, we have...

* Fewer new people joining us than we've had in years
* Fewer messages being sent to Congress, as well

Politicians respond to pressure. Politicians respond to pressure. POLITICIANS RESPOND TO PRESSURE. Yet...

The pressure they're getting is to let the ball go -- to give up their victory. All our normal allies are in favor of Cut, Cap, and Balance.

They need "encouragement" to persuade them to do the right thing. And now, that's YOUR job!

We merely need to get enough Americans, who already agree with us, to work with -- now the ONLY national, activist organization left saying,

&quot;Don't Raise the Debt Ceiling"  

We provide the Educate the Powerful System so you can give your "representatives" on Capitol Hill their "orders."

* But have you been using it, regularly?
* Have you been sharing these messages with others, and encouraging them to join   
* Have you given money to Downsize DC yet this year? 

Most days, we provide a sample letter. But there are sample letters in each of the recent Dispatches referenced above. You can write your own letter, or borrow one of those.

Then, you could forward this message to others. But it would be FAR more powerful if you would make a PERSONAL APPEAL, to your friends, for a balanced budget NOW, by "taking a knee." Tell them how they can make that happen using the proprietary tools we provide at Let's overwhelm Congress.

And, if you're not currently a monthly pledger, please recognize that the stand we're taking right now is already being seen as confrontational -- we've already been accused of undermining folks we normally consider allies. This isn't personal. We still like most of those people, but we respectfully disagree. And that hits us financially, and that is personal.

In order to keep proclaiming this message and providing these tools, we NEED you to join us as a monthly pledger, for whatever amount you can afford, starting at only $1. We have pledgers who give $250 and $200 each month. You can choose your level of support.

But oh, how I wish we could do more. I'd love to spread this message far and wide. That's why we have...

* secured the domain name,
* created a web button/banner that you can place on your website or blog - go here to see it and obtain the code     
* launched a CapTheDebt Facebook page, to which we encourage you becoming a Fan

And now...

* we're moving "Cap the Debt" to the Downsize DC Agenda. We're making it one of our legislative priorities

What could we do if we had money to fight this battle? Could we take it to the press? Right now, I'm obsessed with just paying the rent! But if we had a donor, reading this message right now, ready to supply $10,000 or more, we'd launch advertising and media alerts. We'd jump even deeper into the fray. The more this person gave, the more we'd do. This issue is that important. Are you that person?

If you've...

* sent a message. Thank you.
* appealed to friends and recruited them to send letters with you. Thank you.
* pledged or contributed recently. Thank you.
* done all of these things then, thank you, thank you, and thank you!

But if you're not doing these things, here is a moment to act -- perhaps the best opportunity we've ever had to Downsize DC.

Jim Babka
President, Inc.

P.S. Apparently, not all of the Washington Elephants liked the game plan! Nine Republicans voted against Cut, Cap, and Balance on Tuesday evening.

Two of them were Presidential candidates, Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann. Paul said he was tired of the "status quo" and the pretense of calling some programs "discretionary" and others "non-discretionary." Paul suggested that everything needed to be on the table. Bachmann said that default is completely unnecessary and a scare tactic. She also said that any proposal that doesn't repeal Obamacare isn't serious.

Paul and Bachmmann were joined by Mack of Florida, Broun of Georgia, Rohrabacher of California, Jones of N.C., DesJarlais of Tennessee, Canseco  of Texas, and Griffith of Virginia. We thank and congratulate these members. If you live in their district, you should let them know you appreciate their stand.
