another week closer to the eschaton…

TSA ‘Spot Searches’ Expand To Union Station

When they took the fourth amendment,
    I was quiet because I didn’t deal drugs.
When they took the sixth amendment,
    I was quiet because I was innocent.
When they took the second amendment,
    I was quiet because I didn’t own a gun.
Now they’ve taken the first amendment,
    and I can say nothing about it.

… but that will not stop me from saying stuff about it anyway! 😛

President Obama Signs Indefinite Detention Bill Into Law – 😮 that’s it: i’m not voting for him again.

The American Fascist Sandwich: Indefinite Detention and Internment Camps – 😮

The Return of Waterboarding? – three candidates said without hesitation that they would authorize waterboarding as an interrogation technique… 😮

Occupy Rigged Elections: A Call for the Second American Revolution in 2012 – When candidates emerge who support the positions and demands of the 99 percent, the more certain we can be that our elections will be rigged.

Can Juries Ignore ‘’Immoral’ Laws by Nullifying Them? – short answer: yes. longer answer: you’ve got to be careful, because the gummint doesn’t want you to know that juries are supposed to dispense justice, and not just to “uphold the law” – which means a jury has the ability to strike down unjust laws, if the laws are unjust. an example of how the gummint prefers an ignorant jury? the 79-year-old chemistry professor who has been charged with “jury tampering” because he has been standing outside the federal courthouse in lower Manhattan, providing passersby with pamphlets. see above.

You Won’t Believe How Corrupt, Lazy And Stinking Rich Our Congress Critters Have Become – “when it comes to federal elections, the candidate that raises the most money wins about 90 percent of the time”…

Bradley Manning hearing ends with no clear sign of harm done to U.S. – last week i posted about US citizens beginning to disappear because the government has decided that it’s okay now, and it would be my guess that manning will be one of the first people to have this happen to him, especially now that the government has, essentially, admitted that they had no reason whatsoever to keep him in isolation at gitmo for over a year… 😐

If You Can’t Beat Them, Enjoin Them (From Voting) – across the country, state legislatures and governors are pushing laws that seek to restrict access to the voting booth, laws that will disproportionately harm people of color, low-income people, and young and elderly voters. for example: 93-Year-Old Tennessee Woman Who Cleaned State Capitol For 30 Years Denied Voter ID – “Thelma Mitchell, who was delivered by a midwife in Alabama in 1918, has never had a birth certificate, but when she told that to a drivers’ license clerk, he suggested she might be an illegal immigrant.”

Sea Shepherd Intercepts the Japanese Whaling Fleet with Drones – how’s that $3 million taken from the tsunami disaster recovery fund working out for you now, eh’? my guess is that the sea shepherds are going to do better this year than they have previously, despite all the new tech the japanese government throws at ’em. 😉

US eyes first BP criminal charges over Gulf spill – it’s over, but it’s not finished yet…

Christmas: Brought to You by Chinese Slave Labor – this is why i don’t buy stuff to give as xmas gifts… and it’s one of the main reasons i’m a hindu.

Tweeting the word ‘drill’ could mean your Twitter account is read by U.S. government spies – i don’t have a twitter account (although i used to have one, i never used it and cancelled it a long time ago) however; ‘illegal immigrant’, ‘outbreak’, ‘drill’, ‘strain’, ‘virus’, ‘recovery’, ‘deaths’, ‘collapse’, ‘human to animal’ and ‘trojan’… i know a guy who is retired NSA, and from what he has said, i’m pretty sure that they’re “tracking” me anyway, as i make no bones about using words like “I AM A TERRORIST” in posts like this (hello NSA 8) ), but i don’t care… let them ‘disappear’ me… i’d like to see them try. 😐
