TSA =Typical Statist Agenda or Total Submissive Activity

Transportation Security Administration Chief John Pistole said the TSA has no plans to alter controversial screening practices, despite public outcry. Pistole said the most recent threat of explosives in computer equipment was discovered by intelligence not screening, which defeats his argument for the enhanced screening procedures, including the pat-downs. In addition, the underwear bomber was on a no-fly list and his father turned him in, yet he was still allowed on the plane.

So why is the government doing this? I understand why there are the new screening machines, because the powers that be, like Michael Chertoff are making money from them. What better way for your company to make money than to mandate it; i.e. make it a law. But why is our government causing angst among the people? I believe these new procedures were put in place to control the people; to keep the people on edge. The TSA should stand for Typical Statist Agenda or Total Submissive Activity.

One of Barack Hussein Obama’s Czar’s Cass Sunstein said, “Some Conservative Legal Thinkers like Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas Think that the Constitution means what it originally meant. That means we should understand the document by going into some kind of time machine and capturing the public understanding of the public that ratified the document a century or more than a century ago.” He also said, “Once we know that people are human and have some HOMER SIMPSON in them, then there is a lot that can be done to manipulate them.”

The Fourth Amendment states we are to be secure from unreasonable searches and seizures. The Government says they are doing this for our safety, however quoting Ben Franklin, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Hillary Clinton said she would not like to go through the enhanced pat-down, but she is not subjected to them because of her status, after all she is a member of the ruling class. Janet Napolitano stated, they are listening, but a lot of the information on the pat-downs are inaccurate. The people have seen the pictures and heard the stories, so who are you to believe, Napolitano or your lying eyes?

Thomas Jefferson said, “Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”

The answer for our safety is intelligence, i.e. PROFILING. Let’s focus on the bad guys. Otherwise what are next, body cavity searches? Jefferson also said, “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” There is a saying, how do you eat an elephant? Answer, one bite at a time i.e. incrementalism. How do you lose your freedom? You lose your freedom in increments, one small loss of freedom at a time. Stand up for your FREEDOM.

Response to Pat Martin’s Bitter Editorial Regarding Midterm Election

Pat Martin of the Leader Newspaper wrote an editorial dated November 4, 2010, regarding the 2010 midterm elections. The tone of the editorial was bitterness, perhaps because many of the candidates he endorsed lost.

He was complaining that many of the campaigns were running against National Demons, Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi. May I suggest to this so-called journalist to READ the Constitution, in which it gives the Federal Government enumerated powers and the Obama-Reid-Pelosi agenda was overstepping their bounds. This is why what happens nationally, affects what happens locally.

Martin states, “Obama, Reid, and Pelosi are prominent, unpopular Democrats, and they have been linked in negative Republican ads to every Democratic candidate in the universe. After all, who would want to be linked with our president, when the “far right” knows he is a well-known Kenyan socialist?” Obama is the one who said he wants to TRANSFORM America, and he wants to redistribute the wealth. Obama is a “Socialist,” and his policies are about CONTROL.

Pat Martin talks about the negative campaigns and then goes so far as playing the RACE card regarding the George Engelbach and Ron Casey campaign for the State Representative of Missouri, 103rd District. Martin writes the Missouri Republican State Committee sent out a late smear piece proclaiming, “It’s Frightening Who Ron Casey Chooses To Be Allied With.” I say, Casey is a Democrat, and who would you think he would be aligned with? Why would that be considered a smear?

Pat continues saying, “the piece was a Halloween-themed postcard with a picture of Casey sandwiched between Pelosi and a black and white photo of Obama, to make sure everyone got the idea that he’s an African-American. I’m sure there are some people who didn’t know.” After all, if you oppose Obama’s policies you are a “RACIST.” Anyway, whom are you referring to, Pat? I know in your warped, feeble little mind it is the Patriotic Tea-Partiers, because you have called them racists in the past. FYI, there have always been so-called negative campaigns in American politics. Check your history. Also, if it is factual it is not negative.

Pat Martin implies he is against negative campaigns. However, he failed to mention the ads sent out by the Democratic Committee, wherein they portray Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Patriots in a negative light. He also did not mention Russ Carnahan’s smear of Ed Martin regarding pedophile priests. The Carnahan campaign made false accusations against Ed Martin and then tried to cover-up the smear. The Post Dispatch (Disgrace) endorsed Russ Carnahan claiming that he has CHARACTER. The Post, obviously does not know the meaning of the word, because with this smear, Russ stooped so low he showed his lack of character.

Martin says, the Republicans seem to be better at Martin’s so-called five-legged stool of American political campaigning today, which is:

1. Distort. If that doesn’t work lie.

2. Scare.

3. Create guilt by association.

4. Assassinate character.

5. What am I for? Doggone it; I’m out of time and space.

He says, the Republican’s are better at the five-legged stool, “WHAT?” This is the hallmark of the Democrat/Statist’s agenda to win elections, i.e. they LIE, CHEAT and STEAL. The Democrat/Statists distanced themselves from the Obama agenda and did not run on their so-called accomplishments like Obamacare and Cap and Trade.

Martin continues, “When we don’t pay attention democracy suffers.” I agree with that. People were not paying attention when Barack Hussein Obama was elected President. Hope and Change? Obama did say he was going to TRANSFORM America, unfortunately, not enough people asked, “Into what?”

Martin writes, “Why is it this way? Because we allow it. We vote for people – or more accurately, against people –because of these negative ads, ads that are protected under the First Amendment, but which undermine the American character of a fair, informed citizenry. If we were informed, this junk wouldn’t work.” (Arrogance. It is the people’s will that the Democrats lost the House. They were not doing their job. It was about voting against people who are destroying the country but also about voting for people who follow the Constitution and want to do what is right for this country.)

The Freedom of the Press is also protected under the First Amendment and by putting a blind eye to the detrimental policies of the Obama Administration, Pat Martin is failing at his responsibilities afforded to him under the First Amendment of the Constitution, as being a watchdog over government.

Pat Martin, your headline “GOP-smacked, Republicans swarm County Council” shows your liberal bias. What did that headline mean? You endorsed 6 out of the seven Democrat County Council candidates that lost. What would your headline have read if the outcome would have been reversed?

I do agree that people should become more informed about the issues and the candidates prior to the election so they can make an informed decision on whom and what they are voting for. I encourage everyone to find out about the Candidates through reliable sources, such as alternative media websites, the candidate’s website, and the government sites to check their voting records, because unfortunately the so-called mainstream media and newspapers have become unreliable.

Martin says, the people are too lazy to be informed, but I ask Mr. Martin, you have the paper, what are YOU doing to inform the people, except to write biased stories on your opponents, the conservatives?

All of a sudden, with the election of many conservative Republican candidates, Pat Martin is concerned with holding them accountable to what they campaigned on. A worthwhile cause, something I have said all along and should be done with all elected officials, especially the Democrat/ Statists. On the other hand, what really irritates me is when the pundits or Representatives of the Parties talk about what they (Democrats or Republicans) have to do to stay in power or what the President has to do to be reelected in 2012, instead of being concerned for the American people.

My philosophy is to teach and encourage people to be self reliant and less dependent on government. Let the people keep their money. I want less government intrusion into citizens’ lives. What we need is for our leaders to follow the Constitution, limit government, listen to their constituents, actually read the legislation and cut out needless and duplicitous laws. By following those simple steps would make for a better America.

Letter to SLPD regarding Ed Martin & Russ Carnahan

It looks like Russ Carnahan was reelected to be the Representative for the Third Congressional District with the usual late vote tally from the City of St. Louis. Ed Martin is protesting the tally. Unfortunately, I do not believe anything will come of it. I sent off a letter to Tom Walsh and posted it to the discussion board in September when I found out the Association endorsed Russ Carnahan over Ed Martin. My question still remains, "What was the Association thinking when they endorsed Russ Carnahan?" Does it not trouble the Association that the votes Russ took regarding Obamacare, Cap and Trade, Financial (coercion) bill etc., which are DETRIMENTAL to the American citizens? Do you not question the $107 million of taxpayer's dollars he helped funnel to his brother Tom for his windfarm? Neither I nor Ed received a response from Tom about the endorsement. That is/was disappointing. I, along with Ed was asking the Association to at least talk to Ed to get his views on the issues first hand and then make an informed decision on whom to endorse. I do not understand the LOGIC of the Association's backing of Russ Carnahan. Not only for the reasons I mentioned above, which should be enough, but especially when Russ STOOPED so low with the SMEAR of Ed Martin regarding pedophile priests. These were FALSE accusations and the Post Disgrace endorsed Russ Carnahan claiming that he has CHARACTER. The Post, obviously does not know the meaning of the word, because with his SMEAR, Russ showed his LACK of character. After speaking with Ed the Association may have reconsidered the endorsement of Russ and then with the HELP of the SLPD there would have been a better outcome for the Third Congressional District. Anyway, if the vote count stands, Russ will be going back to Washington and be relegated to minority status in the US House and hopefully he will be FIRED in 2012.
