Do-It-Yourself Government

Chilling Open Government -- Method Four

Describe analysis that fails to capture the meaning of brainstorming, that washes it of all true conflict, praise it, and close comments.

 

This is just disgusting. There is very little pretense that this is an open process.

Obama Ramps up Tyranny on Smokers--Gives FDA Parental Authority

Kindly do not tread on me. Actually, delete that Kindly, how about--Do not tread on me because it is the heart of our nation. I repeat, because it is required. U.S. Citizens are not children. They are adults. Congress, the Administration, and the Judicial branch are not parents. They are employees of the U.S. Citizens. No sin taxes No prohibition Yes to the 9th Amendment which our Government ignores. And apologize ...more »

Civil Disobedience -- Protest all infringements upon Liberty

The Free world is not free. There is no freedom in the USA for private, non-harmful conduct.

 

So long as they imprison people, fight back.

 

Store your contraband by burying it in your local politician's back yard.

 

In their cars.

 

Set them up to be arrested. Then call a tip line and follow through.

If God is content with 10%, why should the Federal Government need more?

LOL. Repeal the 16th. Add amendment: Federal Government shall be content with a 10% sales tax, and shall apply no other taxes. Federal Government shall confine itself to its means and stay within its budget. Federal Government shall be free to petition God for extra money if they make budgeting mistakes. All, and I mean ALL excise taxes are prohibited. Obama, give back the SCHIP taxes. That was wrong, and bad. ...more »

Supreme Court just handed down Opinion on Redding. No punishment for Strip Search.

Strip search your 13 year old children in the public schools.

 

So, another weasel moment by our supreme court.

Here's what they said.

 

Yes, that was wrong to strip search a 13 year old, make her pull her undergarments away from her body. But, who cares. We hadn't clearly told you not to, so we won't punish you for doing it.

New Whitehouse Request for Input

Memo dated today, from Robynn Sturm, invites the public: Non-profits Companies Journalists Teachers Mothers Interested Citizens -----***IN THAT ORDER***----- ...to weigh in again. Doesn't say where, limits it to 3 ideas, apparently on how our government can explain to us how it controls our lives, for what purposes, how much it costs, etc., so on and so forth--the whole transparency sham. Obama, You need ...more »

Ten Percent to Federal Government, State, Church. No income Tax--Only Sales Tax

That adds up to 30%. That's a pretty hefty bite. If God is happy with 10%, who is the Federal Government to demand more? So: Repeal 16th Amendment: Taxing income is bad business, permits deductive manipulation for those who can afford it, demands excessive record keeping, created the demon institution known as I.R.S., and provides avenues for cheaters. Move to Sales Tax. New Amendment: Federal Government may apply ...more »

Where is Participatory? Where is Collaboration?

Who decided that this website was a proper exercise of Obama's memo? It isn't. Like it or not, demanding accountability from government is a proper use of a public forum. The fault lies with NAPA, not those who demand the birth certificate. (I am not one of those) The most minimal effort in design of this website could have saved it. There was no genuine support for the idea behind Obama's memo. The discussion ...more »
