Strangest legal threat yet

Whoever posted this link to violate their copyright should feel ashamed - yawn. You will be tempted to click over but I would not -this is an fyi post only. My bet is Google penalized this site for posting spam so they came up with a scheme that they will threaten sites that they posted spam on to try to get them to remove it. Apparently the site admins consist of high school students who got caught with their pants down because that is would be the only reasoning behind such a twist of a threat. Good luck getting all of these links removed Legal Compliance Department.

Fueling Jobs

Tens of thousands of new jobs, BILLIONS of dollars added to our economy and decreasing our dependence on foreign oil are huge steps in the right direction for America.

But radical “Greens” are waging a last-minute “War on Energy” to KILL the environmentally-friendly Keystone Pipeline Project which would allow America to tap into Northwest American vast oil fields.

Judge: School Can Ban American Flag Shirts.

U. S. District Court Judge James Ware was ruling in a case involving students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, CA, who were banned from wearing American flag t-shirts on the Mexican holiday, Cinco de Mayo. The judge determined that the Morgan Hill Unified School District did not violate the First Amendment and said that concerns by school officials over possible violence justified censoring the pro-American message.

The Theme On Most Posts Is Basically The Same: The Rich v. The Rest Of Us.

A large number of posts now, seem to be about "The Rich", how terrible they are, and how undeserving they are. Says who? Being bitter about being as poor as most of us doesn't help one bit, and only hurts yourself and your peace of mind. Here's a person who has learned how to deal with being poor, while maintaining his dignity!

Japan's latest American import: Radioactive water, fish, and sailors

Fukushima Radiation Reaches Waters Off the Coast Of Canada, Expected To Reach U.S. In April

Made it with one day to spare

Our first bi-racial president, Barack Obama, finally spoke out on behalf of the millions of young minority men getting lost in the cracks. And he did it with one day left in African-American History Month. WHEW! I've had at least two of the local groups on air in the past and applaud them for doing what needs to be done to save this generation.

I'm Just Wild About Harry

Tagged:  

NBC is introducing a new comedy to their Friday night line-up and I've got the first sneak preview. It's about a Senator who finds himself out of his element in Washington D.C., the classic fish out of water plot line. Harry bumbles his way to a top position through behind the scenes moves by other Senators who know he can be used for their own purposes.
Here's the preview where Harry tries to make people believe that what they know is true is in fact all made up by two "trouble making brothers". This is must see TV

Pause to remember a great man

With Zeyad's original post on this topic now buried and with February coming to a close, we should pause and reflect on one of the giants of the American labor movement. Many of you may recall that A. Philip Randolph founded the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters in 1925, when a black Pullman car porter was required to work at least 400 hours a month to qualify for a paycheck, but less known is that Randolph and his brothers struggled for 12 years before their union was recognized in 1937.

PR: Possible debate, but Stainbrook ignores the notion. Delaney however on board.

What is Jon Stainbrook scared of? Why will he not debate Bill Delaney?

How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations
https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/02/24/jtrig-manipulation/
One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents.

the "without them--I'm/we're unnecessary" test

Tagged:  

There's an ignorance growing among Americans. Something that was rare during most of America's history. It used to be that people recognized that Rockefeller, Carnegie, and Vanderbilt were providing jobs for people. Sure--they had riches beyond most citizens' imaginations--but people appreciated the good things they did for the Country (employment and philanthropy).

The liberals have systematically denigrated "the rich" by appealing to the entitlement population who believes that taking money from the rich and giving it to the government will make them (individually) richer. This is ignorance at its finest.

To put things in a logical (and not emotional) perspective, people need to apply the "WITHOUT THEM--I'M/WE'RE UNNECESSARY" test. Here goes.

UAW challenge, challenged

So the UAW which claims "overwhelming" support for itself in it's attempt to forcibly create members in Tenn. now finds itself being challenged by the very workers it says it wants to represent. http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20140225/AUTO0104/302250108/Tenn-VW-w...

A group of Volkswagen AG workers in Tennessee have filed a motion with the National Labor Relations Board asking for the right to challenge the United Auto Workers’ challenge of the recent vote at their Chattanooga factory.

If it saves just one life

Apparently the union workers at GM are putting out a bad product. Now my question is, what's the difference between a union made car that kills people and a non union made car that kills people? One costs a lot less.

General Motors said Tuesday it will expand its recall of vehicles with faulty ignition switches to include 1.37 million cars for model years 2003-2007.

Ares Armor Tactical Store Threatened with Fines & Jail Time for AR-15 Sign

Ares Armor is a small tactical company that operates a store in National City, California. Recently the town of National City disapproved of a sign displayed at the National City store location and told the store, "Take down the sign or go to jail. We do not approve of guns...or you."

The store has been in compliance with the law and was not doing anything illegal. So why is there a fuss? It's because of the guns and the message of freedom being promoted by Ares Armor.

Do you agree with the downsizing of the military.

Essay: Anatomy of the Deep State

Essay: Anatomy of the Deep State

Rome lived upon its principal till ruin stared it in the face. Industry is the only true source of wealth, and there was no industry in Rome. By day the Ostia road was crowded with carts and muleteers, carrying to the great city the silks and spices of the East, the marble of Asia Minor, the timber of the Atlas, the grain of Africa and Egypt; and the carts brought out nothing but loads of dung. That was their return cargo.

Texas Police Double as Islamic Terrorist Militia

PJ Media reported
"Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA [Muslims of the Americas]/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization."
