Warning! Dictatorship Alert!

"... If the process of political action does not matter, only the result, then the ends justify the means. That is when illegality becomes law." 

Government attracts people who want to exercise power over others.  Where else can you find a job described as "making law to run other people lives"?  It is not wise to trust politicians.  American Hispanics are being told they have sold their souls to emperor Obama.

American government has constitutional form to inhibit the growth of authoritarianism.  Life is worth working for when the people are free.  Take away that constituted freedom, and the people's lives are killed.  History shows that the protection of liberty can be destroyed if the people stupidly demand it.

Mr Obama has flown in the face of the American Constitution; the executive order is for the sole purpose of carrying out enacted Congressional law, not for making new law out of whole cloth.  Obama is demanding on his skill at organizing the community.  He has gotten the people of the country to demand that constitutional protection against dictatorship be dismantled.

By ignoring the Constitution, the foresworn Obama has ordered illegal law:  Treasonous Obama must be removed from government.  More important, the people must learn that dictatorship, even dictatorship of the majority, is a public evil.  The protections built into the American Constitution are there to protect the people.




Obama = lord of the needy

Ebola symptoms

Just so you'll know, there are 5 species of Ebola virus.

The incubation period for Ebola is usually 5 to 18 days but may extend from 2 to 21 days depending on the species of the virus.

Ebola virus is hemorrhagic disease:  That means massive, difficult to control bleeding.  The bleeding occurs even without there first being a wound.

The Ebola virus hemorrhagic disease symptoms in individuals are:
  1. high fever
  2. nausea and vomiting
  3. headache
  4. muscular pain
  5. general malaise
  6. inflammation of the pharynx (throat) - the first 6 symptoms are much like flu.
  7. diarrhea with bloody discharge
  8. development of maculopapular rashes (discolored skin with bumps) 
  9. with bleeding at body orifices.

Specific human symptoms of Zaire Ebola virus and Sudan Ebola virus:
  1. abdominal pain
  2. joint pain
  3. chest pain
  4. coagulopathy (slow clotting of cuts)
  5. hiccups
  6. low blood pressure
  7. sclerotic arterioles (clogging arteries)
  8. purpura (skin discoloration that will not blanch under pressure)
  9. petechia (patches of broken capillaries beneath the skin)
 Be well America.

Unemployment drops - the cheerful lie.

The administration released the cheerful news that payroll employment increased by 248,000 in September and the unemployment rate declined to 5.9%.  This is the lowest rate since 2008.  Put a happy face on that.  The "unemployment rate" is a politically concocted number

The more revealing labor participation rate is the lowest in 10 years at 62.7%  Normally, you would expect that if the unemployment rate is dropping, the labor force participation rate should be rising.  That little down tick at the right end of the graph means that more adult Americans aren't working.

Life is rough in Obamaland - "compassionate government" is not realistic.  Until we get rid of Obama and his big government buddies, America will get poorer.

This data also released today.  Here's the graph, as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, at http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS11300000

Big regulation

A month earlier, as you may recall....

The official unemployment is dropping.  But like so many figures that come out of government, this one is misleading.  There is no growth in the actual jobs market.  Government regulation is an ineffective grower of the economy.

The Left deeply desires government to be effective -- more than anything else.  To the Left, having powerful government, one that can solve social problems, is so important, they are willing to overlook the inevitable social problem such a monster would create.  The total loss of personal freedom is only the first that comes to mind.

Obviously, a tyrannical government would be able to solve serious problems,if the officials of that government had the motivations of angels.  But they would be humans, tempted by the power they possess to serve their own selves and not the people at large.  Then they play a round of golf

When the people complain about too much regulation, they are not too clear.  What they really mean to say is the regulation the government is laying on them is not in service the whole people.  The complaint is about whom the American government is serving  -- the whole people, or only the people making the regulation.

Government hyper regulation - musical instruments

The American government has perceived a dangerous source of environment treble....

 "Musical instruments may contain parts or products of species protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and/or the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Brazilian rosewood, tortoiseshell, and elephant ivory are among the protected species most commonly found in musical instruments.

"If you are traveling with a musical instrument that contains Brazilian rosewood, elephant ivory, tortoiseshell, or another protected species, you will need to obtain proper legal documentation before crossing international borders.  You may need CITES documents for other species, particularly wildlife species, so always check before traveling."


For details, see the Fish and Wildlife Service (!) page on musical instrument regulation, from where I lifted the text above.

Government micromanagement is harassment.  This is insane.  This is wrong.
