Like Joseph Heller said in Catch-22; "Just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you!"
I mean really!
News breaks that the IRS is targeting 'Conservative' groups applying for tax-exempt status with extra inquiry - including additional (burdensome) questionnaires, (improper nee illegal)requests for donor lists and even possible denial of exemption!
Over the weekend it slips out that 'taxpayers (I guess those on welfare need not worry) must start reporting Heath ID info to the IRS starting in 2014! Hidden in the proposed immigration bill is a biometric database of all adult Americans!
[And for this conversation, let us forgo the implications of the grand design behind the truncating of Second Amendment rights...]
Once all of these oversight surveillance mechanisms are in place, it is a short distance to only allowing those "in the party" to have advantaged taxed exempt status, heath-care or even a job!
For a little lagniappe here are some of the Lyrics to the Rockwell Song Somebody's Watching Me
I'm just an average man with an average life I work from 9 to 5, hey, hell I pay the price All I want is to be left alone in my average home But why do I always feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone and
I always feel like somebody's watchin' me And I have no privacy Oh, oh, oh, I always feel like somebody's watchin' me Tell me is it just a dream
When I come home at night I bolt the door real tight People call me on the phone I'm trying to avoid Well, can the people on TV see me or am I just paranoid
When I'm in the shower, I'm afraid to wash my hair 'Cause I might open my eyes and find someone standing there People say I'm crazy, just a little touched But maybe showers remind me of Psycho too much, that's why
I always feel like somebody's watchin' me And I have no privacy Oh, oh, oh, I always feel like somebody's watchin' me Who's playin' tricks on me
[Who's watching me] I don't know anymore are the neighbors watching me [Who's watching] Well, is the mailman watching me [Tell me who's watching] And I don't feel safe anymore, oh, what a mess I wonder who's watching me now [Who] the IRS
I always feel like somebody's watchin' me And I have no privacy Oh, oh, oh, I always feel like somebody's watchin' me Tell me is it just a dream
I always feel like somebody's watchin' me, ee, hee, hee And I have no privacy Oh, oh, oh, I always feel like somebody's watchin' me Who's playin' tricks on me
What if, in the 1930s, my father had studied economics at
Harvard, went to Germany and wrote articles in support of Hitler and National
Socialism; and what if my mother left me with my grandparents and sailed off to
distant lands to promote the ideals of National Socialism; and what if my
grandparents belonged to a church that supported the Nazi Party in America; and
what if my grandfather was a member of the American Nazi Party and was on the
FBI's watch list of American Nazis; and what if my grandfather introduced me to
a self-admitted member of the American Nazi Party and whom I wrote about in an
autobiographical book describing him as a mentor to whom I turned to many times
for advice and guidance; and what if, when in college, I admitted to seeking
out and associating with Nazis; and what if I sat in a church for 20 years and
listened to a man, who I described as my spiritual adviser and best friend,
engage in hate-filled tirades against the United States of America and
espoused the virtues of National Socialism; and what if I got elected
President of the United States and selected as cabinet members and advisers a
man who admitted to be a Nazi, a woman who admitted that Adolf Hitler was one
of her favorite philosophers, and a man who said that Adolf Hitler was right
about power coming from the end of a gun; and what if I made statements that
mirrored Adolf Hitler's philosophy on governing and economics?
Would you believe I was a Nazi?
So what if:
Barack Hussein Obama's father had studied economics at Harvard and
returned to his native Kenya and wrote articles in support of socialism,
claiming that the government had the authority to confiscate 100% of everyone's
earnings; and what if his mother abandoned him to his maternal grandparents and traveled to
foreign lands to espouse the values of communism; and what if his grandparents belonged to
a church nicknamed "The Little Red Church" because of its support of communist
causes; and what if his maternal grandfather was on the FBI's watch list of American
communists; and what if his grandfather introduced him to Frank Marshall Davis, a member of
the American Communist Party who Obama described as his mentor to whom he
turned to many times for guidance; and what if he sought out and associated with radicals,
socialists, Marxists and communists when he was in college; and what if for 20 years Obama
sat and listened to anti-American and pro-Marxist rantings in the church of
Jeremiah Wright, a man whom he described as his best friend; and what if Obama hired Van
Jones, a member of the American Communist Party as his Green Jobs Czar; hired
Anita Dunn, who said Mao Tse-Tung was one of her favorite philosophers, as his
Communications Director; and hired Ron Bloom as his Manufacturing Czar, who said he
agreed with Chairman Mao's assertion that political power came from the point
of a gun; and what if Barack Obama said that he wanted to "spread the wealth
around;" and that he wanted to raise capital gains taxes for the "purposes of
fairness" even though it raised less money ("spreading the wealth around" and "fairness" being ideals of Marxism.)
Would you believe that Barack Hussein Obama is a

of you who are old enough to remember the 60s, you might remember The
Weathermen which mutated into The Weather Underground when they figured out
that law enforcement was on to them.So they went "underground" to continue their revolution against
Weathermen was an offshoot of the radical group Students for a Democratic
America (SDS). They formed in 1969 and the main goal of their
"revolution" was "the destruction of U.S. imperialism and the
achievement of a classless world: World communism" and to "achieve
the dictatorship of the proletariat."In fact they spelled out their plans in a manifesto dubbed
"You don't need to be a weatherman to know which way the wind blows."If you care to read their thoughts, click here.

in this manifesto. It was "submitted" by a handful of Weathermen
radicals, most notably Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and Jeff Jones.
talk about, and follow the tenets of two very important radicals named Cloward
and Piven, who call for collapsing the system from within. In case you're not
familiar with these two names, they have a strategy named for them.It's appropriately called The
Cloward-Piven Strategy.It's a
strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis.
strategy was first proposed in 1966 by Columbia University political scientists
Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven as a plan to bankrupt the welfare
system and produce radical change. Sometimes known as the "crisis
strategy" or the the "flood-the-rolls, bankrupt-the-cities
strategy," the Cloward-Piven approach called for swamping the welfare
rolls with new applicants - more than the system could bear. It was hoped that
the resulting economic collapse would lead to political turmoil and ultimately
sound familiar?It should because
that's where we are headed.These
people wanted to destroy America.Have they succeeded?So who
were or are these Weathermen? Let's look at just a few:
Jones grew up in California. His dad worked for Disney and was a pacifist and
conscientious objector to the war. His beliefs were not well thought out and he
was easily swept into the radical movement when he went to college in 1965
Dohrn grew up in Wisconsin in an upper class suburb and attended college -- the
time of her first-known dive into radicalism. She's known for uttering this
truth-telling statement about the Charles Manson murders: "Dig it... First
they killed those pigs then they ate dinner in the same room with them then
they even shoved a fork into the victim's stomach. Wild!"The kind of girl you want to take home
to Mom don't you think?
a respected member of society, says she was "lucky they didn't kill
anyone." Apparently she doesn't consider Ted Gold, Terry Robbins and
Ayers' girlfriend, Diana Oughton "people" because
die in a premature explosion of some bombs they were making in 1970. Dohrn was
one of pin-up girls on an FBI 10 most-wanted fugitives list from 1970 to 1973.
Ayers grew up in the upper-middle class suburbs of Illinois. His dad was CEO of
a giant utility company, Commonwealth Edison. He attended an exclusive prep
school but says he "hated every minute there" and liked the
"free thought" he found at the University of Michigan. Ayers was keen
on turning towards militancy. He now says about the bombings that he doesn't
"have anything to apologize for. I wish we had done more"
they did quite a bit.They bombed
The Haymarket police statue and several Chicago police cars parked in a
precinct parking lot. Then they decided to go underground. In 1970, they were
suspected of a bombing at the San Francisco Police Department. It was about that
time that the three Weather Underground members were killed when the bomb they
were preparing for Fort Dix went off.Oops!
from the law and went deep underground. It was during that time he married
Bernadine Dohrn.But the bombings
continued; the National Guard Association building in D.C.; an NYPD
headquarters; and let's not forget the 1981 armored truck robbery which they
stole $1.6 million and eventually led to a shootout with police, leaving two
police officers and one Brinks guard dead and wounding several others.
notorious bombings were:
• March 1,
1971: The United States Capitol in "protest of the U.S. invasion of
• May 19,
1972 (Ho Chi Minh's birthday): The Pentagon in "retaliation for the U.S.
bombing raid in Hanoi."
29, 1975: The bombing of the United States Department of State Building in
"response to escalation in Vietnam."
are they now?
Jones has his own consulting firm that helps "progressive groups achieve
their goals." He's on the board of Movement for a Democratic Society,
working closely with SDS (which is growing the new Weathermen and Weather
Underground -- now available possibly in your child's high school now) and he's
a member of the Apollo Alliance. They, with funding from Tides, helped write
the stimulus package. Unconstitutional, sure, but Jeff Jones helps decide where
your tax money through the so-called stimulus is going
• In 1997,
Bill Ayers won citizen of the year award for his work on the Chicago Annenberg
Challenge project. He's a professor at the University of Chicago. He served on
the board with President Obama at the Woods Foundation. They were neighbors and
Obama attended a campaign event at his house. He's now a respected and
influential member of society. In 2001, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) turned over its records
to the University of Illinois Chicago's (UIC) Richard J. Daley library.
The records are of value because they document the close working
relationship Obama had with domestic terrorist leader and "bomb
designer" William Ayres. They also demonstrate that Obama failed at the
one executive position he ever held, chairman of the board of the CAC.
And they reveal how the charitable funds donated to improve the public
education of Chicago schoolchildren were used to fund extreme radicals
like Ayers and Maoist Mike Klonsky.
Dohrn, married to Bill Ayers, is now associate professor of law at Northwestern
University School of Law and was director of Northwestern's Children and Family
Justice Center.Dohrn (and Ayers)
played a key role in organizing Free Gaza Movement, which launched the flotilla
whose crew attacked Israeli soldiers who boarded, stabbing them violently and
even throwing one over the deck.
• Linda Sue Evans, a Weather Underground member. She was
sentenced to 40 years in the 1981 cop-killing that mentioned earlier. In 1990
she was convicted of other violent acts. Her sentence was commuted in 2001 by
Bill Clinton. You remember our first "black" president pardoned 150
felons just days before he left office.Today she's out there campaigning for inmates' rights as an organizer
for "All of Us or None," a group that "combats the many forms of
discrimination that [felons, prisoners and former prisoners], as the result of
felony convictions." She's pushing for felon voting rights.Gee, I wonder which way they would
Evans spoke at a nice event -- the Soros Justice Fellowships meeting, on a
panel for prison reform alongside the executive director of the Ella Baker
Center, which is admitted communist Van Jones' organization. In fact, Evans
received the Soros Justice Fellowship in 2001, awarded to "outstanding
individuals" who will implement innovative projects to reform the United
States' criminal justice system.Soros, hmm Soros.Where
have I heard that name?Oh, I
know; George Soros is the international billionaire who made his money
been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years
now.People have been warning
us.Two years ago Bill O'Reilly
said on The O'Reilly Factor that Soros is an extremist who wants open borders,
a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and much, much more.
This is a dangerous man. In 1997 Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, Soros uses his
philanthropy to change or more accurately deconstruct the moral values and
attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people.
are they now?
The White House, right next to the President of The United States.
Car-pocalypse and your Big Labor future with Card Check as an added bonus.
In our country Labor Unions are a Monopoly that should be referred by the epithet "Big Labor". They artificially inflate wages above market value and this cost is passed on to consumers.
Like a Middle Eastern Oil Cartel, Labor unions can arbitrarily and artificially restrict supply. When Big Labor desires to severely restrict supply, they call it a strike!
Big Labor enjoy a unique set of privileges including: immunity from taxation, immunity from antitrust laws, the ability to restrict other from working at a lower wage, often engaging in coercion, intimidation and outright violence against strikebreakers. Since the Police are themselves unionized, enforcement of existing laws or protection against illicit Big Labor activities can not be guaranteed. Moreover, interpretations of the Nation Labor Relations Board suppress management from communicating wage offers directly to labor union members - NOT being able to communicate offers directly to member is known as "good faith" negotiations!As if that's not enough, Big Labor has positioned itself to shake down employees with COMPULSORY DUES - for both union and nonunion members alike as an actual requirement for employment. It should be noted that often these dues, extorted from members are used for overt political purposes like; political campaigns, voter registration instead of typical activities such as collective bargaining or employee grievances issues. Source
In collusion with congress [the new mafia], Big Labor along with Gettelfinger as point man and its franchisee - the UAW are attempting to force the national equivalent of COMPULSORY DUES, on the entire country, by insisting that relief given to the 'Big 3'not be done "on the backs of big labor - instead relieve for the Big 3 should be done on the back of the American Taxpayer.
Like that idea having the US taxpayer underwriting Big Labor's promises? If so, then you will really be pleased with Big Labor's scheme to leverage their resurging influence with the incoming administration by bring Employee Free Choice Act (Card-Check) to businesses near you.
So, it turns out that the political incubator that nurtured "the office of the president elect"has sired yet another 'Frankensteinian' political 'soup-sandwich". As they say "power begets power" and I'll extrapolate; "power corrupts" and "corruption begets corruption". The irresistible snare of the weak-willed: authority!
Another fine mess congress has gotten us into: National Socialism and sanctioned loan-sharking, gambling and extortion vis-à-vis Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and the bailout of everything else . . .
As if thunderstruck - some - in congress have finally had an epiphany - that there is a problem with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Even heard Henry Waxman on the 'old media box' giving the 'what for' to current execs.
For years credit Risk officers at Freddie Mac have been warning that; "they were not even close to having proper control processes for credit, market and operational risk . . ."
Yet, as late as 2004 we had Maxine Waters, Gregory Meeks, Barney Frank and fellow conspirators, in congressional hearingsassuring fellow Americans that there was nothing wrong with Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae. Make no mistake about it, these supposed congressional leaders must have known there were "issues". Instead they colluded with the vary same institutions to swept the problems under the rug, keep the Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae afloat and suckled at the teat of their very own cash cow.
Now what we have here is a failure to communicate:
This illegal activity when NOT performed by congress used to be vigorously prosecuted by the FBI and the perpetrators jailed for corruption, extortion, fraud and flagrant violations of the Ricco Act
Why aren't Waters, Meeks, Franks, et al, "frog marched out" out of congress and tried in the public square?
I can only pray that congress will go after all of these willing co-conspirators with as much enthusiasm as they have pursued the CEOs of private enterprise.
In 2002 congress was influenced - okay, pressured, by ACORN and other liberal 'community organizations' to issue new Affirmative Action lending Quotas - to increase 'minority' homeownership by 5.5 million by 2010. Contrary to traditional lending standards, or any sort of best management practice, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae allowed many of these loans to be made with NO MONEY DOWN, no security and nothing vested. - (Why do I hear strains of the Dire Straights song - "Money for Nothing" in my head. . .)
In 2004 'maverick politicians' urged reformed of such idiocy only to be 'whack-a-moled' like some sort of congressional gangsta beat-down.
In 2008 - we are witnessing a financial condensation of an already managed economy; hobbled by government restrictions, environmental advocacy and union racketeering; perpetrated by the very congressional nitwits now in charge of fixing same.
Like the Politburo or some Venezuelan junta, these apostles of ignorancehave presided over the State's seizing Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, confiscation of your money - via taxes - to bail out companies "too big to fail". But wait, there's more . . . there is the persistent rumors that these plunderers will attempt to 'spread the wealth" by merging YOUR 401K plans with an already insolvent Social Security System and b. Hussein isn't even inaugurated yet!
Look of the invisible hand of government to be ungloved and fortified and even more meddlesome in the next year.
In the meantime the current rush toward National Socialism - a la the 1930s German model is astonishing both in it's rapid pace AND acceptance.
The mere consideration of a taxpayer bail-out of the big three US auto makers is so absurd its like an excerpt from a Michael Moore movie -except it's true. Yet no one will call it what it really is:Bailout of a primary democrat constituency.
And make no mistake, even given the staggering amount of money involved, it is but a mere down payment in a blackmail scheme where the CEO's of theUS auto makers have become "Fixers" an the largest union extortion plot ever. And of course the politicians benefiting from this voter-block are only all too happy to oblige - with the transfer your money to someone else.
I loved Google - even laughed when it was "verbed" in a movie plot. Google, now a venerable web brand, so entrenched in our daily lives, it is both a noun and an 'action word'!
It has grown so fixed and so ubiquitous that nearly every windows based computer has "it" - a Google toolbar. And whether it is installed by default in your Internet Explorer browser, preinstalled on your new Dell computer or downloaded with the latest version of Adobe Flash Player - there is no getting around it. It's everywhere. Business analysts often refer to Google's domination of the market space.
Without raising the specter of what is being done with all of that Google Toolbar data, Google Ad Planner/Ad Sense data or Google.com data currently being captured AND collected, or possibilities of what the b. Hussein's "Change-State" could do with the result of every Google search from everywhere much should be made of the relationship of Google's CEO Eric Schmidt and Obama's campaign AND possible inclusion of Schmidt into the b. Hussein Administration.What a team - huhh - Obami-Google!
To those outside the IT field, it should be a worrying sign the Google can and does control the information that it displays through a multiplicity of metrics, and a scheme of 'double secret' algorithms know as page ranking.
Moreover, Google's 'do no evil' policy much akin to the United Nations' 'do no harm' mandate actually has the converse affect - just ask those poor souls dying in Africa how 'do no harm' is working for them!- Do no evil has Google willingly censoring itself for more market share in China,http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4645596.stm . . .
And as I 'riffed' in my Acolytes of Idiocy post, the nature of "Change" as we know it may be nothing more than good old fashionretribution!!!
Or is there something more sinister afoot - a systematic ploy to control information not only through the MSM (mainstream media ) ; but, on every desktop near you?
It is important to know that one of our 'formerly trusted' web tools has become an apparatus of the body politic. And information or at least information (or lack thereof) of a political nature dispensed from that source is at best - tainted.
