Remembering a fallen hero

Quote of the Day: The Constitution was based upon the fact the federal government had exceedingly limited powers. It was only allowed to do eighteen very limited things -- the enumerated powers, period. And everything else belonged to the states and the individuals to regulate. - Peter McWilliams

A personal message from Jim Babka . . .

Best-selling author Peter McWilliams died ten years ago today, June 14, 2000.

I remember when I heard the news. I can still feel the sickness and anger that I felt that day.

I didn't know Peter personally, but I admired him. Some of my colleagues were good friends or acquaintances of his.

Peter was an eloquent champion of limited government and personal freedom. But his life was cut short by the War on Drugs. The federal government denied him the medication he needed to live and thrive.

What he went through, I wouldn't wish on anyone, let alone my family and friends. But we have it in our power to prevent similar tragedies from happening to others. Please tell Congress to return to the Constitution, and end the insane War on Drugs.

You may copy or borrow from the following letter . . .

Today marks a cruel anniversary in the barbaric history of the War on Drugs. On this day, ten years ago, the federal government caused the death of the best-selling author Peter McWilliams.

Do you know his story?

* In 1996 Peter was diagnosed with cancer and AIDS
* The medications he needed to treat these diseases caused extreme vomiting, and he could not keep them down long enough for them to work
* That same year, Proposition 215 legalized medical marijuana in California
* Under the recommendation of four physicians, Peter started using marijuana.
* The marijuana controlled his nausea, restored his appetite, and allowed his medications to work

Marijuana saved Peter's life, for the moment. This led him to fund research into medical marijuana and to start a business supplying it to buyer's cooperatives. The DEA took notice, raided and trashed his home, and even confiscated his computer, which contained the manuscript of his latest book.

Peter was charged with being a "drug kingpin!" And then, he was hamstrung, legally. The federal judge in the case took away his defense, barring any mention of . . .

* California's medical marijuana law
* his terminal illness
* how medical marijuana allowed him to keep down his medication and prolong his life

While the legal process dragged on, the government prevented Peter from using the marijuana that controlled his nausea. Peter was required to pass drug tests. He complied, even though his life was at risk, because . . .

* Peter's mother and brother had to put up their homes as collateral to post his bail
* If he failed the test, their homes would have been seized by the government

Peter's health deteriorated until he died at the age of 50. The vomiting had taken a tremendous toll on his alimentary canal, as well as his heart, and even his teeth. Despite the suffering, he never lost his sense of humor. And the reason I most admired him was that he felt sympathy for his tormentors, rather than rage. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?pageId=508

Marijuana saved Peter's life, but the War on Drugs destroyed it.

Peter's most noted book was "Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do." It promoted the idea that each person can do whatever they please with their own bodies and property, so long as they don't interfere with the right of others to do the same. So let me ask you:

* What business is it of yours what people choose to do with their bodies and property?
* Where in the Constitution is the federal government empowered to deny people like Peter McWilliams the medicine they need?

Sadly, Peter wasn't the only victim of your War on Drugs. He was just one victim among many. The long list of your victims includes . . .

* terminally ill patients for whom marijuana (or some other illegal drug) could ease pain and nausea
* people with psychological problems for whom now-illegal drugs could help calm them or clear their minds
* young people whose futures are ruined not because of drugs, but because of a "criminal" record
* innocent adults and children on our streets, in Mexico, and across the world caught in drug turf warfare
* innocent victims of no-knock SWAT raids and asset forfeiture
* young people who get hooked on drugs precisely because, unlike legal drugs such as cigarettes and alcohol, they're available to be bought and sold on the streets and school grounds

The United States leads the world in incarceration rates, mostly because of non-violent, consensual crimes like drug possession. Apparently President Obama wants even more people in prison. He wants increased funding for interdiction, law enforcement, and the continuation of bloody drug wars across the border.

I suggest you do something else. Read and learn from Peter's books - especially "Nobody's Business." And then put an end to this stupid, immoral, and unconstitutional War on Drugs.

Is There Any Hope Left for America?

I'll make it short and sweet. Yes there is. But do not fool yourselves, there is no man or woman who can give us hope.

We need to think clearly and look at the big picture. Obama didn't turn out to be the great hope that those who supported him hoped for. yes, he brought about change, but it was a change from bad to worse.

Yes, we will get some people in office who will fight to restore our nation to its core values, back to the way the founding fathers intended it to be and they will even have some success at doing it.

However, even those people will let us down, they will fall, they will falter and some may give up.

But you see, even knowing all these things, I still have hope, because, I do not put my faith in man or woman, my faith is in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

He is the one who has given us the ultimate gift of liberty, free from the bondage of sin's stronghold and in him we have hope.

HR 5175 Selectively Silences American Opinion

Obama Moves to Silence Gun Groups and Other Political Opponents
-- Bill clears committee hurdle, going to the House floor soon

Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert
8001 Forbes Place, Suite 102, Springfield, VA 22151
Phone: 703-321-8585 / FAX: 703-321-8408
http://www.gunowners.org

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Fresh from his efforts to seize government control of the health services sector (ObamaCare) and the financial markets ("finance reform"), Barack Obama has a new priority: silence his political opposition.

As satisfying as it was for Obama to seize control of one-sixth of the economy, he has had to suffer protest from the "little people" (like us). So he is pushing the Orwellian "DISCLOSE" bill (HR 5175) to make sure gun groups and other pro-freedom forces cannot mobilize their members in the upcoming elections.

When Obama says "disclose," what he really means is "disclose gun group membership lists"

Not surprisingly, these efforts to shut down free speech don't apply to Obama allies, like Democratic-leaning labor unions. They only apply to groups which are not reliable Obama allies, like Gun Owners of America.

But, for those groups whose free speech is targeted for Obama's wrath under this bill, the consequences are severe:

* Under Title II of the bill, GOA (and other groups, as well as many bloggers) who merely mention public officials within 60 days of an election could be required to file onerous disclosures -- potentially including their membership lists.

* Also under Title II, GOA could be required to spend as much as half of the time of a 30-second ad on government-written disclosures.

* In addition, Sections 201 through 203 would potentially put the government's snooping eyes on any American who voices a political opinion, despite the fact that the Supreme Court, in Buckley v. Valeo, declared that Americans have a right to voice their opinion to an unlimited extent, if unconnected with a political campaign.

Here's an idea: If Obama is so irritated at the Supreme Court's defense of political free speech by groups like GOA, why doesn't he apply his sleazy new rules to his political allies, as well?

ACTION: Please urge your congressman to vote against the anti-gun HR 5175. This bill has moved out of committee and has now been placed on the House calendar.

You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send a pre-written message to your Representative.

----- Pre-written letter -----

Dear Representative:

I urge you to oppose HR 5175, a bill that will deny the free speech rights of all Americans. Under Title II of this bill:

* Groups like Gun Owners of America (and other groups, as well as many bloggers) who merely mention public officials within 60 days of an election could be required to file onerous disclosures -- potentially including their membership lists -- even though the Supreme Court has previously ruled in NAACP v. Alabama that membership lists (like those of GOA's) are off limits to government control.

* Also, groups like GOA and the NRA could be required to spend as much as half of the time of a 30-second ad on government-written disclosures.

* In addition, Sections 201 through 203 would potentially put the government's snooping eyes on any American who voices a political opinion, despite the fact that the Supreme Court, in Buckley v. Valeo, declared that Americans have a right to voice their opinion to an unlimited extent, if unconnected with a political campaign.

Here's an idea: If Obama is so irritated at the Supreme Court's defense of political free speech by groups like GOA, why doesn't he apply the new rules in HR 5175 to his political allies (like the labor unions), as well?

Suffice it to say, if you care anything about the First or Second Amendments, you will vote against HR 5175. GOA will be scoring this vote on their rating of Congress.

Sincerely,

Blasphemy and Christian Bashing Trending Up?

Is this a desperate attempt to increase ratings or are networks revealing their true master?

A OneNewsNow.com article just revealed a new show that blasphemes our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The name is the show is JC. The show makes a mockery of our faith and our beloved creator.

Blasphemy

This show does its best to be just as equally or even more reviling than the JC show on Comedy Central.

They are promoting the show on the likes of Facebook and other social networking sites with images like this. In the image, the character is wearing a T-shirt with “Satan Heart Me.”
Blasphemy

Then of course on the various pages of its web site, they have a Devil’s Daily Affirmation. The one pictured below reads “Do evil every day, You may not change the world, but you’ll have more fun.”
Blasphemy

The poster page displays posters with various sayings. This is another copious way to inundate impressionable minds with messages of pure evil. Some of the posters read. “Screw the Whales, Save Hell,” “It’s Cool to be Cruel,” “Live Evil,” and Be part of the Damnation.”
Blasphemy

God’s word tells us “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;” (Mathew 5:44 KJV).

It is imperative that we pray for those who reject Christ and his teachings. It is also imperative for us to reject these types of programs and any advertisers who participate in the shows.

Just remember that as Christians, we need to show a godly love for those who hate us. Take a stand, but do so with the kindness that the Lord has shown to us all that have our faith rooted in Him.

“I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day “(John 12:46-48 KJV).

These types of shows should not distract us from the commission that God has given us and that is to continue to spread his word so that the unbelievers are saved from eternal damnation.

Is Congress regulating its way to the next crisis?

Quote of the Day: "It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be tomorrow." -- James Madison (1751-1836), Father of the Constitution, 4th US President, Source: "Federalist" # 62

Politicians have a standard cure for every problem -- REGULATION. But what happens when there are so many regulations that not even the regulators can know them all, or understand what their consequences are? A case in point . . .

Widespread reliance on credit rating agencies, and a lack of knowledge about how those agencies were regulated, were major contributors to the 2008 financial meltdown.

Just this one example (explained in our sample letter below) is enough reason to reject the so-called financial reform bills being put forward by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Complicated regulations helped cause the 2008 mess, and they are NO part of the solution.

If you agree, please send Congress a letter telling them so.

You may borrow from or copy from this sample letter . . .

Wall Street is already the most regulated sector of the economy. Too many regulations means that even the regulators don't know them all. Jeffrey Friedman of the Cato Institute shows how this helped cause the 2008 financial meltdown. http://www.cato.org/pubs/policy_report/v32n1/cpr32n1-1.html

It appears that both the banks and the Federal Reserve were unaware that a 1975 SEC rule turned S&P, Moody's, and Fitch into a legally protected oligopoly, protecting them from competition from other rating agencies!

* Commercial banks believed in the soundness of the ratings from these agencies
* Other federal regulators wrongly believed S&P, Moody's, and Fitch were subject to "market discipline"
* But because these agencies were actually protected from competition, they got sloppy, and provided unreliable ratings
* This caused many financial institutions to purchase bad mortgage pools

In other words . . .

Regulators were unaware of the regulations! So how will MORE regulations help?

New regulations constantly address "the unintended consequences of previous regulations." They never really fix anything.

Instead of over-regulating the economy, strike at the root with real reform . . .

* End subsidies and bailouts -- make companies feel the consequences of their actions
* Stop creating monopolies, as you did with the credit rating companies

More regulations cause chaos, confusion, and catastrophe. Freer markets promote caution, transparency, and long-term growth. Therefore, I want you to oppose the Frank-Dodd financial reform bill.

Will Legislators Continue to Ignore We the People?

One would think after seeing the spaniking incmumbents are receiving during the early primaries that legislators would stop legislating and start representing. But it seems that they are going to ignore the people until they are voted out.

Legislators think a national id card will stoip illegal immigrants from illegally entering our country. That is laughable at best. National id cards are a bigger risk to national security than not having one.

Putting all of our senstive information into one hackable database is just asking for trouble. While many states havbe opted out of the Real ID National ID scheme, others like NC and Deleware are going forward with it and ignoring all the dangers of haveing such a system.

Legislators are also considering Immigration Reform. Now reform means amnesty. More than 80% of Americans do not want amnesty for those who have entered our country illegally.

States like AZ have to take it upon themselves to make it illegal to be in the state illegally. They have the right to do so under the tenth amendment.

Lets face it, there are some simple solutions to control the flow of illegal immigrants into this country.

* Secure our borders - We need more than 1200 additional troops to stop the crossing
* Enforce current immigration laws
* Jail and fine employers of illegal aliens
* Cut off the social programs for illegals

These simple things will help stop the flow of those who want to enter our nation illegally, but legislators want to ignore common sense approaches and try to use the same argument they did in the last amnesty, "We cant round them up and deport them all."

Of course not, all we need to do is do more enforcement and remove the incentives, ie free health care, food stamps, and employment.

Be sure to remind your elected leaders that you will not forget come election day.

Should People be Allowed to Film/Record Police?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNcDGqzAB30&feature=player_embedded

Apparantly in the State of Maryland it is illegal to videotape the police or anyone in public without their consent.

It seems that the legislators in Maryland had a good idea, prevent people from being videotaped without their permission.

This would make it easier to convict the freaks who like to take images of people in ways they dont like.

However it seems they left out the fact that Public officials and employees do not have the expectation of privacy.

While the guy acted like a buffoon and was driving like an idiot, he deservingly received his ticket, but tapping a police officer can benefit both officer and the person be subjected to any type of confrontation with an officer.

One has to wonder if the legislators made a mistake when creating this law or if they purposely made it so broad as a means to keep their faces off the likes of youtube and the local news when they are seen doing something wrong or illegal.

If the police can rightfully videotape criminals then the people should have the right to videotape the authorities and public officials, otherwise they have no incentives to behave accordingly because after all any video made without their consent could be confiscated before it is made public.

The people of Maryland should stand up and tell their legislators that this legislation needs to change.

Byrdie Watch 2010 - What Happened to Senator Byrd?

The Wall Street Reform Bill vote on Thursday was missing one of the most auspicious members of the Senate. Sources in Washington have revealed that absent from the vote was Senator Robert Byrd.

“We thought maybe someone forgot to bring him out from the cloak room before the vote,” commented one White House reporter.

However, after an exhaustive search of the Congressional grounds most concluded that Byrd had decided to start his weekend a bit early.

We caught up with him at the villa he rents in Mexico. “I just couldn’t sit through another one of those votes,” Byrd said as he sipped on a Margarita. “Besides these weekends are what has kept me going for the past fifty year’s in Congress.”

H.R. 4173 (Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 )easily passed the Senate without Senator Byrd's or Senator Arlen Specter.

Republican Senators Brown (R-MA), Grassley (R-IA)& Snowe (R-ME), hopeful not to be thrown by the wayside voted to support the Legislation that will do nothing to prevent future bailouts of financial institutions, but only increases federal control.

Some are speculating that Senator Specter still upset that his party threw him out on his backside during the Senatorial primaries, may have jumped on the same plane with Senator Bryd. So far, we have yet to confirm that report.

Upon further investigation we have learned that a law was quietly passed in 1999 allowing Byrd to receive vacations every weekend for the rest of his life, paid for by our taxpayer dollars. Perhaps the secret to Byrd’s longevity in Congress is due to something special in the water here. Now only one question remains, where will Byrdie spend Memorial Day Weekend?

Help Wanted Incumbents Need Not Apply

The people are specking and the incumbents are falling. Well actully they fell when they stopped listening to the people who voted them in and only heard those special interest groups with the deep pockets whispering sweet nothings and the promises of a lifetime seat.

Clearly the incumbents fell for it hook line and sinker. They decided to piss on the Constitution and trample the rights of American people and now the people are speaking up with their ballots.

"Enough already" has been the mantra of people on both sides of the seat. The constitutionalists hand Libertarians have been shouting this to deaf ears long before the bailouts and the HCR control bill, but more Americans are waking up.

The American people do not care how long you have been in office and what seniority you have in the Senate or House, if you ignored them, they are voting you out and hiring those who will pay attention.

It looks like America's political face is about to get an extreme makeover and it will not be just Republicans or just Democrats controlling the legislator. Nope Americans are going to see candidates who are liberty minded individuals who want less government intrusion and more accountability.

The time is now.

Can you see the government's hidden role in the BP oil spill?

Quote of the Day: "Government's view of the economy can be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it." -- Ronald Reagan (paraphrased)

The politicians meddle with everything. For example, when it comes to energy production there are . . .

* Direct subsidies
* Tax breaks and tax penalties
* Liability limits, but also potential fines if you don't do things just right

What a meddling muddle! This is why . . .

It's fair to say that the federal government played a hidden role in the BP oil spill. To learn more read the sample letter to Congress below.

We think it would be better . . .

* For oil companies to pay all the costs and carry all the potential risks of each drilling project
* To have all of these costs and risks reflected in the prices consumers pay, rather than hidden in legislation and regulations

In other words, there should be . . .

* No subsidies or special tax breaks
* No liability limits
* No tax-funded bailouts, or government run clean-up funds
* And regulations should be provided by insurance companies who are putting their own money at risk

If, after reading the sample letter to Congress below, you agree with us that this approach would better protect both the environment and the taxpayer, then please send Congress a letter telling them that. You can use DownsizeDC.org's No Bailouts campaign to send your letter.

You may borrow from or copy this sample letter . . .

The BP oil spill is another example of the destructive nature of government guarantees and bailouts.

I know that BP has agreed to pay more of the clean-up costs, beyond the government-provided liability cap. I also know that they've been threatened by Congress and the Administration if they don't. But this is hypocritical, because Congress created the liability cap and the clean up fund in the first place! In 1990, Congress passed a law that . . .

* capped oil company liability for spills at $75 million
* set up a fund, paid for by the oil companies, to pay for the rest of the clean-up

In effect, this is a government-run oil spill insurance program, but without the risk management incentives provided by real insurance companies. This whole scheme was a terrible idea from the start, and has been used to bail out companies that cause oil spills a whopping 51 times! http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/02/us/02liability.html
Because of the liability cap, BP may have been less cautious than it would have been if its own money had been at risk.

In addition, a lack of regulation has been blamed for the BP spill. But government regulators . . .

* don't have the profit and loss incentive that private insurance companies do; they don't go out of business for their mistakes
* tend to impose one-size-fits all rules that don't work as well as the site-specific requirements that insurance companies impose
* and often act as partners in the industry they regulate, not as watchdogs http://www.thefreemanonline.org/columns/tgif/bp-spill/

But imagine if we had a free market in energy . . .

* Oil companies would be liable for ALL the damage they cause
* And this would compel them to seek liability insurance in the private market

In turn, insurance companies would . . .

* demand the strictest standards to prevent accidents and spills because, unlike government regulators, they would be financially responsible for any mishaps
* and, if the risks are too great, they would deny coverage

If off-shore drilling is too risky, that means no one in a free market will invest in it, and entrepreneurs would then have a huge incentive to develop less-risky energy alternatives. This would be a good thing! This is what you politicians claim to want!

This means that a true free market in energy would actually reduce accidents and CREATE A CLEANER ENVIRONMENT.

I therefore demand that you put an end to government meddling in energy production.

1) Instead of raising the liability cap for oil spills, remove all government liability caps on all forms of energy production
2) Instead of inefficient and counter-productive government regulations, allow private insurance to set requirements for off-shore oil drilling and other forms of energy production, such as nuclear, which is also currently protected by government liability limits
3) Get rid of all subsidies, tax breaks, and tax penalties so that we can benefit from free and fair competition among all energy producers

Once these three market-based policies are in place, energy companies will bear the true capital expense of their projects -- instead of the taxpayers. Risky and dangerous projects will flop. But profitable projects should be allowed to proceed -- including drilling for oil.
