America the uppity

America the uppity

How can Google and Facebook contemplate anything not put forward by government? Don't they know that government knows best.

"A single, giant company responsible only to its managers can't claim to have the world's interests at heart. Ultimately, what Google does is for Google.""
Where as we all know the government is committed to supporting the governing class- me, Maureen Doud.

Actually, the fact that Google is focused on Googles' interest is in line with the intentions of the founders, the "Hidden Hand" works in this way to make all things better.

"My friend Jim Gleick, the author of "The Information" who is working on a book about time travel, is as leery as I am about the company whose unofficial motto is "Don't Be Evil.""

"Don't be Evil" an obvious anti government dog whistle.

Has Maureen Doud indicated she would not be evil?

Since when is the federal government concerned

Since when is the federal government concerned with the constitution
http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/04/the-irony-of-cliven-bundys-unconstitutional-stand/360587/
 1, Section 2 of the Nevada Constitution:
""All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for the protection, security and benefit of the people; and they have the right to alter or reform the same whenever the public good may require it. But the Paramount Allegiance of every citizen is due to the Federal Government in the exercise of all its Constitutional powers as the same have been or may be defined by the Supreme Court of the United States; and no power exists in the people of this or any other State of the Federal Union to dissolve their connection therewith or perform any act tending to impair, subvert, or resist the Supreme Authority of the government of the United States. The Constitution of the United States confers full power on the Federal Government to maintain and Perpetuate its existence, and whensoever any portion of the States, or people thereof attempt to secede from the Federal Union, or forcibly resist the Execution of its laws, the Federal Government may, by warrant of the Constitution, employ armed force in compelling obedience to its Authority.""

"have been or may be defined by the Supreme Court of the United States" is not found the us constitution. To say the slavish deference to federal law is primary, when the federation government generally fails to follow the constitutition and the federal executive do not faithfully implement the laws passed by congress, is to bow to arbitrary authority

Standing tall, hats off to the Cliven Bundy

Standing tall, hats off to the Cliven Bundy family

http://townhall.com/columnists/kevinmccullough/2014/04/13/why-the-feds-chickened-out-on-a-nevada-ranch-n1823838/page/full

 Shades of Branch Davidian massacre.

"It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so quickly, given all they had indicated they were willing to do to resolve the matter to their satisfaction. They had set up a perimeter around the Bundy's family land, ranch, and home. They had brought in extra artillery, dogs, and snipers. They were beginning the process of stealing..."

We all need to stand up to federal oppression. We all need to fight in every venue.

If you aren't free to be wrong, you aren't free

If you aren't free to be wrong, you aren't free

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/media-608400-many-one.html

""But when it comes to authoritarian expression of "true" beliefs, it's the progressive Left that increasingly seeks to impose orthodoxy. In this rising intellectual order, those who dissent on everything from climate change, the causes of poverty and the definition of marriage, to opposition to abortion are increasingly marginalized and, in some cases, as in the Steyn trial, legally attacked.

A few days ago, Brendan Eich, CEO of the web browser company Mozilla, resigned under pressure from gay rights groups. Why? Because it was revealed he donated $1,000 to the campaign to pass Proposition 8, California's since-overturned ballot measure defining marriage as between one man and one woman.

In many cases, I might agree with some leftist views, say, on gay marriage or the critical nature of income inequality, but liberals should find these intolerant tendencies terrifying and dangerous in a democracy dependent on the free interchange of ideas.

But what started as liberation and openness has now engendered an ever-more powerful clerisy – an educated class – that seeks to impose particular viewpoints while marginalizing and, in the most-extreme cases, criminalizing, divergent views.

Today's clerisy in some ways resembles the clerical First Estate in pre-revolutionary France, which, in the words of the historian Georges Lefebvre, "possessed a control over thought in the interests of the Church and king." With today's clerisy, notesessayist Joseph Bottum, "social and political ideas [are] elevated to the status of strange divinities ... born of the ancient religious hunger to perceive more in the world than just the give and take of ordinary human beings, but adapted to an age that piously congratulates itself on its escape from many of the strictures of ancient religion." ""

Science doesn't accept anything as settled. There is no truth, only assumptions. I have beliefs, which I consider settled, but which I grant others a right to their opinion.

I have rights, some of which are listed in the US constitution. I believe in the literal interpretation of the constitution. I believe in my right to my understanding of the constitution.

Violating my rights, is a big fucking deal.

Deviant mozillions, do the right thing, leave

Deviant mozillions, do the right thing, leave
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/brendan-eich-gay-rights-mccarthyism/

"Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all.

No you don't, you liars. You don't want contributions from anyone who doesn't subscribe to gay-rights orthodoxy. You don't care how they behave, or how they treat others. All you care about is what they think — or how they once thought, even after they have long since ceased being a threat to you and your political goals. You don't want them in your workplace. No traditional Christians, Jews, or Muslims need apply — or if they do, they had better stay deeply closeted."

So, if you don't , or in the past didn't, agree with the consensus thought of the culture, perhaps, for the good of all you should leave.  If you are one of those who "think outside the box" you are by definition a deviant. Save the consistency of the collective leave, taking your funky friends with you.

And Brendan Eich, to make up for your deviant self, take your fellow non conformists away to do what ever, we don't want them at Mozilla.

Defending Religious Liberty From the State

Defending Religious Liberty From the State Religion.

"Nothing comes close to environmentalism in generating left-wing enthusiasm. It is the religion of our time. For the left, the earth has supplanted patriotism. This was largely inevitable in Europe, given its contempt for nationalism since the end of World War I and even more so since World War II. But it is now true for the elites (almost all of whose members are on the left) in America as well."

Progressives don't realize their belief system is a religion , just that is obvious, and non believers are to be destroyed. This may be why they are partial to Islam.

Republicans Don't Support Obamacare- Who Would Hav

Republicans Don't Support Obamacare- Who Would Have Thought?

""Without the political attacks, Gruber said, the Affordable Care Act will work.

"No doubt in my mind that if people left it alone for three years and let it run, it will be highly successful," he contends, "but that is not the world we live in."

From Gruber's perspective, the GOP attacks reveal a "small minded" opposition focused on damaging President Obama instead of fixing the nation's costly, inefficient healthcare system.

Gruber recalls then-Gov. Romney and a representative of the conservative Heritage Foundation standing on stage with a Democrat, then-Sen. Ted Kennedy (Mass.), to sign the state law that is the model for the national version. The state law is popular and successful.""

If the design of the rollout was to expect no Republican opposition for over seven years, why was it there was no Republican support for Obomacare? Was the plan to retain the House, so all opposition could be crushed? "ShutUp" they explained.

It appears to me that the Democrat Party is guilty of malpractice. They re too used to the establishment support from the federal clerical class, and unions. Lawyers, the University propaganda machine, Teachers throughout the federally controlled education system, and the Mainstream Media.

The problem appears to be the various parts are falling on their swords, causing thier influence to decrease, and thier careers to terminate. The type of people who support the establishment are not those expecting to sacrifice.

Maybe they should look for a bigger tent, which appears to have momentum to taking over the current establishment. Rats on a sinking ship and fleas on a dead dog, have the sense to look for another safe haven. Are Democrats?
