Anti Government Anarchist

Our government in the US is threatening our civil freedoms and liberty. They have trashed the constitution of the United States. They elect a "president" who refuses to prove he was born on US soil. He has tried to take control of the internet, he has abused the media and the media is nothing but corrupt.

His selected staff have tried to remove gun rights in America, ban smoking in not only public places, but our own homes. They have even gone so far as to suggest that anyone christian, not-liberal, against Obama, former veterene of war, are treasonous and terrorists. They are Americans... Who fought for this country and the dogs get better treated than our heros.

He tries to placticate all the groups in the US. There are only one group and one group alone. We are Americans, at the end of the day. The muslims, the african americans, asian americans, I don't give a **** what you think you are, DOES NOT APPLY for special treatment.

They lie, they cheat, they steal. They remove our daily freedoms, our morale is losing interest.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague." Cicero 42 B.C.E.

The Real Truth: Cash For Clunkers Explained 10-7-09

If you traded in a clunker worth $3500, you get $4500 off for an
apparent "savings" of $1000.

However, you have to pay taxes on the $4500 come April 15th
(something that no auto dealer will tell you). If you are in the
30% tax bracket, you will pay $1350 on that $4500.

So, rather than save $1000, you actually pay an extra $350 to the
feds. In addition, you traded in a car that was most likely paid
for. Now you have 4 or 5 years of payments on a car that you did
not need, that was costing you less to run than the payments that
you will now be making.

But wait, it gets even better: you also got ripped off by the
dealer.
For example, every dealer in LA was selling the Ford Focus with all
the goodies including A/C, auto transmission, power windows, etc
for $12,500 the month before the "cash for clunkers" program
started.

When "cash for clunkers" came along, they stopped discounting them
and instead sold them at the list price of $15,500. So, you paid
$3000 more than you would have the month before. (Honda, Toyota,
and Kia played the same list price game that Ford and Chevy did).

So let's do the final tally here:


You traded in a car worth: $3500
You got a discount of: $4500
---------
Net so far +$1000
But you have to pay: $1350 in taxes on the $4500
--------
Net so far: -$350
And you paid: $3000 more than the car was
selling for the month before
----------
Net -$3350


We could also add in the additional taxes (sales tax, state tax,
etc.) on the extra $3000 that you paid for the car, along with the
5 years of interest on the car loan but lets just stop here.

So who actually made out on the deal? The feds collected taxes on
the car along with taxes on the $4500 they "gave" you. The car
dealers made an extra $3000 or more on every car they sold along
with the kickbacks from the manufacturers and the loan companies.
The manufacturers got to dump lots of cars they could not give away
the month before. And the poor stupid consumer got saddled with
even more debt that they cannot afford.

Obama and his band of merry men convinced Joe Consumer that he was
getting $4500 in "free" money from the "government" when in fact
Joe was giving away his $3500 car and paying an additional $3350
for the privilege.

(Comment: My prime disagreement is with authors belief that Democrats/Elite Media will control/own next years mid-term election; I'm not so convinced-Yet! If he is right, then all hell will break-loose IF Obama/Democrats continue their blatant take-over of American Capitalism, to be replaced with Marxist-like/Socialism administrated by the 'savior' Democrat Party and well into the foreseeable future.  I wholeheartedly agree that Obama, and Democrat Party/Elite Media leadership are of the Marxist bent and have nothing but contempt for the Constitution, unless they are hiding behind it while destroying the same. The author hints at and is correct, that most people prefer the 'see no evil' lot of a placid sheep in a flock for protection vs. the loner and somewhat ungainly sheep dog out on the peripherals of the flock keeping the ObamaDems/elite media 'wolves' at bay. This Liberal-driven (political correctness) softening of the traditional 'American Grit' is a prime ally of the enemy and Obama, Democrats, elite media know it. So....Buy more ammo since millions of sheep are depending on you but prefer to keep their heads down grazing -until the grass is gone! BL)

From Naval Commander Jerry Wilson, be warned.....
http://paul-reveres-riders.ning.com/...e-warned?xgs=1


As we know, America is under attack in a horrifying way. I am involved with many patriotic groups and received this from Naval Commander Jerry Wilson, who has written the following article that every American should read. I have tried to warn my family and friends since the election. People ARE waking up, but it is going to get ugly before it gets better. I am urging personal responsibility. Prepare for the coming storm, as it IS coming.

 


Be warned !!!


Subject: Fwd: The (New) Gathering Storm)---Please Read!!!!!


From Military Aviator: Naval Commander Jerry Wilson, jerrywilson@


We lived in California during the winters of 2007 and 2008. We became addicted to Fox News and watched O'Reilly and Hannity and Colmes every night.. When we got back home, we upgraded our cable to get Fox. I watched the Presidential campaign very closely. Initially because I thought the Democrats would nominate Hillary Clinton and then in astonishment when they chose an even more hard-left candidate. All of last year I told everyone I could that Obama was not a Democrat, he was a Marxist. He is far to the left of any European leader and even our far left party, the NDP.


I read Saul Alinsky when I was in University. I studied him and his writing carefully.


When Bill Ayers and his idiot wife were bombing and killing people at random in the Weather Underground, Weather Underground and the Black Panthers were closely allied. I read David Horowitz's account of changing from a Marxist to a conservative after seeing that the government was afraid to prosecute members of the Panthers for murdering his personal assistant. He suddenly understood the evil that Marxism really was.


After the student radicals failed in creating a Marxist revolution in the United States by violent means, they embraced Alinsky. You would be wise to read "Rules for Radicals" because it outlines how Hillary and Obama planned to get into power, and what they intended to do when they got it.


Socialism is not the correct descriptor for what Obama and the Democrats are doing. They are going to be much more far reaching than anything Sweden has ever been able to do. Obama is following Alinsky's plans, those set out in "Rules for Radicals" and his other writing. The Democrats are attempting to create one party rule in the US and in achieving that, will create crisis after crisis by their own actions and use those crises to nationalize the means of production in the US. You are in the middle of a communist revolution and few in the US can actually see it for what it truly is.


The US is now on the path of financial destruction. The Constitution has been shredded and individual human rights are being trampled. In less than 8 months, Obama has used a recession to take over the two largest industries in the US. He will debase the Dollar and is on the road to creating an incredible energy shortage that will allow him and Congress to take over the energy industry.


But by and large I think that by the 2010 elections, the Democrats will have gerrymandered electoral districts to the point that it will be impossible for them to lose control of both houses of Congress. The incredible increase in the money supply is going to create Zimbabwe and Venezuela style inflation, and with it, controls on the currency and the amount of money that can be taken out of the country. I love America, I cannot believe how the ignorance of the American public has created a situation whereby they are going to lose their Republic and slip into an age of repression and tyranny. I may be nuts, but so far I have been 100% in my predictions of what Obama was going to do, because I merely had to look at "Rules for Radicals" to see what was coming next. I read Glenn Beck's book, "Common Sense" and in it re-read Thomas Paine's pamphlet with the same name. I recommend the book.


When the storm finally hits (and it will), those of you who supported the Obama administration will be affected as well. It won't just be us gun owners or Flat Taxers, or Pro-Lifers that get hit. You'll be right there next to us.


You see, you all thought the Conservatives were nut cases. You know, all of us who believe in God, small government, the Second Amendment, etc. And you thought you could just go back to sleep after the election was over. In your world, America will continue as before. You'll still have the same rights, the same nice house, the same big screen television, it's all good. After all, your high school football team won and the other team lost -- go team! Even if you have bothered to look up from the daily grind since Nov 4th, you dismissed everything that has occurred as "politics as usual -- the same old stuff." In the end, it'll all be OK won't it?


Not this time. There are a growing number of citizens in the US who are ready to fight to shut down the government's grab of personal freedom, it's blatant abuse of the Constitution, and it's attempt to replace the American way of life with socialism. You have to listen carefully to hear them, but they are there. I won't start that fight, but when it goes down I will join it.


As for you, why, you'll be shocked because you didn't see it coming. And eventually you'll be saddened when you see that we have truly lost the way of life with which you grew up. You'll be saddened that your children and grandchildren live in a socialist, government-controlled gulag where their every movement from cradle to grave is tracked by the government. But most of all, you'll be saddened by the death of friends and relatives who are brave enough to fight and die for something they believe in.


You know, McCain wasn't much of a candidate. I'll give you that. He was the lesser of two evils for most of us. I don't blame you for not voting for him since, at the time, you didn't know what we all know now. But at least John McCain was an American. He was a supporter of the American way of life and he understood that you can't negotiate with terrorists. He understood and appreciated the sacrifice made by my father and other members of the Greatest Generation.


Mark my words, friends. All across America groups are forming. They are forming out of anger and out of desperation at the thought of losing America. They're not militia groups, terrorists as the Department of Homeland security would have you believe; they are Americans, loyal to the Constitution. They are mothers and fathers and grandparents. They belong to groups like the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, the Peaceful Resistance, the Constitution Party, the Young Conservatives, the 9/12 Project, and Grassfire. Right now they are fragmented, each focused on their own cause. But sometime in the next two years, our government is going to do something really stupid and these groups will come together. Watch for it, wait for it--get ready. It will happen.


When that event happens, whatever "it" is, our great country is going to plunge into chaos for a while. I pray to God that we make it through that time and emerge a stronger, smarter country.

Typical hypocritical liberal fashion!!!

 


Anti-Gun Advocate N.C. State Senator Shoots Intruder

Aug 24, 2009

RALEIGH — Long time Anti-Gun Advocate State Senator R.C. Soles, 74, shot one of two intruders at his home Sunday.

The victim was taken to a hospital, but the injuries were not reported to be life-threatening.

"I am not in a position to talk to you," Soles said by telephone. Soles, a top-ranking Democrat already was the subject of an SBI investigation over sexual misconduct with former male clients.

The Senator, who has made a career of being against gun ownership for the general public, didn't hesitate to defend himself with his own gun when he believed he was in danger.

In typical hypocritical liberal fashion, the20"Do As I Say And Not As I Do" Anti-Gun Activist took action in what apparently was a self-defense shooting. Why hypocritical you may ask? It is because his long legistlative record in North Carolina shows that the actions that he took to protect his family, his own response to a dangerous situation, are actions that he feels ordinary citizens should not have.

This has prompted some to ask if the Senator believes his life and personal safety are more valuable than ours. But, this is to be expected from those who believe they can run our lives, raise our kids, and protect our families better than we can.

America armed, but guns not necessarily loaded

By MARY FOSTER, Associated Press Writer – Wed Sep 23, 2:51 pm ET

NEW ORLEANS – Bullet-makers are working around the clock, seven days a week, and still can't keep up with the nation's demand for ammunition.

Shooting ranges, gun dealers and bullet manufacturers say they have never seen such shortages. Bullets, especially for handguns, have been scarce for months because gun enthusiasts are stocking up on ammo, in part because they fear President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress will pass antigun legislation — even though nothing specific has been proposed and the president last month signed a law allowing people to carry loaded guns in national parks.

Gun sales spiked when it became clear Obama would be elected a year ago and purchases continued to rise in his first few months of office. The FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System reported that 6.1 million background checks for gun sales were issued from January to May, an increase of 25.6 percent from the same period the year before.

AP – In a Saturday, Aug. 22, 2009 photo, Michael Mayer explains the various types of ammunition for handguns …

"That is going to cause an upswing in ammunition sales," said Larry Keane, senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade association representing about 5,000 members. "Without bullets a gun is just a paper weight."

The shortage for sportsmen is different than the scarcity of ammo for some police forces earlier this year, a dearth fueled by an increase in ammo use by the military in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"We are working overtime and still can't keep up with the demand," said Al Russo, spokesman for North Carolina-based Remington Arms Company, which makes bullets for rifles, handguns and shotguns. "We've had to add a fourth shift and go 24-7. It's a phenomenon that I have not seen before in my 30 years in the business."

Americans usually buy about 7 billion rounds of ammunition a year, according to the National Rifle Association. In the past year, that figure has jumped to about 9 billion rounds, said NRA spokeswoman Vickie Cieplak.

Jason Gregory, who manages Gretna Gun Works just outside of New Orleans, has been building his personal supply of ammunition for months. His goal is to have at least 1,000 rounds for each of his 25 weapons.

"I call it the Obama effect," said Gregory, 37, of Terrytown, La. "It always happens when the Democrats get in office. It happened with Clinton and Obama is even stronger for gun control. Ammunition will be the first step, so I'm stocking up while I can."

So far, the new administration nor Congress has not been markedly antigun. Obama has said he respects Second Amendment rights, but favors "common sense" on gun laws. Still, worries about what could happen persist.

Demand has been so heavy at some Walmarts, a limit was imposed on the amount of ammo customers can buy. The cutoff varies according to caliber and store location, but sometimes as little as one box — or 50 bullets — is allowed.

At Barnwood Arms in Ripon, Calif., sales manager Dallas Jett said some of the shortages have leveled off, but 45-caliber rounds are still hard to find.

"We've been in business for 32 years and I've been here for 10 and we've never seen anything like it," Jett said. "Coming out of Christmas everything started to dry up and it was that way all through the spring and summer.

Nationwide, distributors are scrambling to fill orders from retailers.

"We used to be able to order 50 or 60 cases and get them in three or four days easy, it was never an issue," said Vic Grechniw of Florida Ammo Traders, a distributor in Tampa, Fla. "Now you are really lucky if you can get one case a month. It just isn't there because the demand is way up."

A case contains 500 or 1,000 bullets.

At Jefferson Gun Outlet and Range in Metairie just west of New Orleans, owner Mike Mayer is worried individuals are going to start buying by the case.

"If someone wants to shoot on the weekend you have to worry about having the ammunition for them. And I know some people aren't buying to use it at the range, they're taking it home and hoarding it."

With demand, prices have also risen.

"Used to be gold, but now lead is the most expensive metal," said Donald Richards, 37, who was stocking up at the Jefferson store. "And worth every penny."

Your health records available to millions
Including sensitive details about diseases, prescriptions, addictions, mental illness


Posted: October 06, 2009
2:08 pm Eastern


By Chelsea Schilling
© 2009 WorldNetDaily


Would American citizens object if they knew 4 million health-related businesses distributed private details about their mental illnesses, cancer diagnoses, sexually transmitted diseases, prescriptions, addictions and sensitive genetic information?
Psychoanalyst Dr. Deborah Peel told WND most patients don't know that their highly sensitive information is being shared with thousands of law-enforcement agencies, insurance brokers, life and health insurance companies, credit bureaus, transcription vendors, disease registries, employers and banks every day – and the data can be used to discriminate against Americans.
"Part of the language that keeps people assured is they say things like, 'No unauthorized users can see your information.' That sounds pretty good," she said. "The problem is, they don't tell you how many authorized users there are."
Peel, founder of Patient Privacy Rights, the nation's leading consumer health privacy advocacy organization, said patients often have a false sense of security when they sign Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, forms in doctors' offices. She warned that those forms only affirm that the patient has received notice that health-related businesses can share records.
PPR's website warns that this information sharing can affect Americans in a variety of ways. It posted the following list of examples:
If a school or university

learns your child has ADHD or is being treated for depression, they may deny admission.
If a boss knows you take Xanax or Zoloft, they may reconsider your promotion.
If you or your spouse have a serious or costly chronic illness, an employer may not hire you or your children. A bank may deny a loan or credit.
If you get a genetic test, most researchers and companies claim to own your DNA. Hospitals freely use the DNA of all newborns. If you carry the breast cancer gene, you, your children and grandchildren may always be stigmatized, even if they aren't sick.
Amending HIPAA 'Privacy Rule'

Congress passed HIPAA in 1996, but it did not include a medical privacy statute. Rather, the Department of Health and Human Services, or HHS, was required to submit detailed recommendations on patient health privacy regulations. In 2001, HHS released "Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information," also known as "the Privacy Rule," 65 Fed. Reg. 82,462. The HIPAA "Privacy Rule" recognized the patient's "right of consent":
164.506 "Consent for uses or disclosures to carry out treatment, payment, or health care operations.
(a) Standard: consent requirement. (1) Except as provided in paragraph (a)(2) or (a)(3) of this section, a covered health care provider must obtain the individual's consent, in accordance with this section, prior to using or disclosing protected health information to carry out treatment, payment, or health care operations."
However, Peel said the HHS amended the "Privacy Rule" in 2002 and eliminated the patient's right of consent, granting permission to "covered entities" to share private health information:
"The consent provisions … are replaced with a new provision … that provides regulatory permission for covered entities to use and disclose protected health information for treatment, payment, and health care operations."
67 Fed. Reg. at 53,211
This amendment provides federal "regulatory permission" to more than 600,000 "covered entities" and millions of "business associates" to use and disclose identifiable health information for a variety of "routine" purposes.
Get the prescription for reclaiming America's heritage of liberty, justice and morality – Joseph Farah's "Taking America Back," autographed only at the WND SuperStore.
PPR created the following chart to illustrate how various groups and companies might obtain and share private information about a single patient:

Legal users of patient medical records
Zone 1 includes the patient and his doctor. When a patient makes an office visit, private health information can be legally shared with Zone 2 "covered entities," including health and life insurance companies, labs, pharmacy benefits managers, insurance brokers, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, disease registries, law-enforcement agencies, medical information bureaus, public health agencies, self-insured employers, hospital chains, third-party administrators and even the Food and Drug Administration.
By Zone 3, private health information may be shared with credit bureaus, legal services, hospital staff, data clearinghouses, data processing firms, pharmacy chains, pharmaceutical companies, accounting firms and even offshore transcription vendors as far away as Pakistan.
"Entities, like a hospital or doctor's office, have accountants, lawyers, people to maintain websites. If they have electronic software, they have many software and IT vendors that create the databases that hold and share and store the information and so forth," Peel said. "Those people get a hold of the information, too."
By Zone 4, the information may reach financial institutions, holding companies, banks and investment companies. She said banks can freely trade information with credit bureaus.
Asked whether those companies keep the private health information on file, Peel replied, "Oh absolutely. It's very scary. There's nothing regulating when they destroy information, nothing. Even if we had rules about them destroying it, who is going to follow up?"
She continued, "The big black sinkhole is the health-care operations phrase in the amendment, which means virtually any use that they can put to it. It's essentially sanctioned and legalized data theft." Why was the privacy rule removed to allow information sharing without patient consent?
"I think there was naiveté on HHS' part," Peel said. "They thought, well these people are all in the health business, and they're all going to take care of patients."
But Peel said there's a major flaw in assuming the health-related businesses will regulate and protect the handling of private information.
"Not only will they not self-regulate, but they have legal duty to make the best possible returns for their shareholders, which is completely at odds with our rights as Americans to control our sensitive information," she said. "The American public is very divided. On one hand, they want to trust their doctors. They know about the Hippocratic Oath, and they've also believed the lies coming from the administration and the industry that the HIPAA rule protects privacy. The language is tricky."
Danger of information sharing
Peel said Americans should be concerned when their information is shared because it could destroy their lives and futures.
"What is the worst problem cancer survivors have?" she asked. "No one will hire them, and no one will insure them because no one believes they are ever going to live. Even five and 10 years out, it's very difficult."
Peel also said patients who seek psychiatric care often worry that details about their condition will be shared.
"When I first started to practice, people came in and they asked, 'If I pay you cash, will you not send my information to anyone?'" she said. "Why did they ask me to do that? It's totally about jobs. I've heard nothing but complaints about reputations and jobs being lost for 30 years."
Furthermore, Peel said patients can pay cash for medical services, but cash will not prevent sharing of private information about prescriptions.
"You cannot get a private prescription in this country even if you pay cash. It doesn't matter if you pay them cash," she said. "Some people drive to Mexico to get prescriptions or they try to get them on the Internet, but the Internet is actually very traceable. It's a real dilemma because people are discriminated against based on their prescriptions. The lists of prescriptions you take are sold daily. People can get those, and if you are on an antidepressant, you might not get a job."
Asked if a patient can provide cash and an alias for services, Peel replied, "No. They make it illegal. The make it illegal to give a false name!"
She continued, "It's an insane system, and, unfortunately, the main use of the information really is to do things like to discriminate against you."
What's more, she said patient health records are often rife with errors, misdiagnoses, inconsistencies, incorrect billing information and even wrong medication. She said patients usually don't have access to their own electronic health information.
"A lot of the data about you, you need to see it because who knows if it's right or not?" she asked. "Who is going to edit your information to take to a new doctor so that new doctor knows which information is true about you? It has to be you. You have the most motivation to know the truth about yourself or your own life."
Fighting for patient privacy protections
Peel said PPR helped fight for patient privacy protections added to the recent stimulus bill.
"We did not get back the right to control our personal information, but we did get a ban on the sale of protected health information," she said. "We don't know when they're going to implement that. It's going to be a nasty fight."
She said citizens were also given the right to "segment" sensitive information.
"Under state laws, we all have the right to segment all kinds of sensitive information on genetics, sexually transmitted diseases, mental health, addiction, all kinds of categories of information that require higher levels of protections," she said. "We got that reinforced at the federal level so data miners can't preempt all the state laws."
The stimulus also provided a brand new right to audit trails so patients can see who handles their information.
"We got three years of audit trails in. We think people are going to faint when they see how many people get into their records that they never would have imagined for purposes that they've never heard of," Peel said.
But she said patients are still facing some major setbacks: "The stimulus funds are going to go out without the requirement that systems do any of these things for three to six years. So, all of our data is going to be sold. The administration and the committees advising the administration and the HHS and the Office of the National Coordinator have put all of the consumer protections dead last."
Furthermore, Peel said the stimulus bill requires every American to have an electronic medical record by 2014.
"That was in the stimulus bill," she said. "Every one of those records will be data mined without our consent for a myriad of uses that have never been discussed with the public."
What can patients do to protect their private health information?
Peel said PPR is setting up a petition for a national "Do Not Disclose" list. She said citizens should sign that petition when it is released.
"If you are on that list, anyone who holds your health data can't use it or move it without your informed consent," she explained. "We are trying to get this thing running in the next week or so. There has to be a way to opt-out and to control data. We have to start putting the control back in the hands of patients."
She continued, "We also have a consumer tool kit they can take to doctors and hospitals to assert their rights. Put them on notice that you can't do this to me under state law. Nobody knows to assert their rights. They will tell you they can't do it, but you've put them on legal notice."
Peel said patients can also write lawmakers, though she said they are up against several insurance company lobbyists who lobby Congress every day.
"The number of lobbyists is absurd, and they are paying millions of dollars because the information is worth millions to deny your claims, to deny payments, to deny insurance and to share the information with your bosses."
On one hand, Peel said, Americans have heard HIPAA protects privacy. On the other hand, there's a part of them that knows HIPAA doesn't offer enough protections.

That's because the government has let these non humans from other country's live here.

Perhaps instead of sitting here calling people idiots (like an idiot), discuss why they are wrong. Unless you are not sure of what you are talking about. Who said anything about the government being nice? Am I suppose to volunteer for a good cause in order for my rights to be honored? If these sights are a waste of time. why are you here? I believe you are looking for an argument but may be a a card short of a full deck. ANY WAYS! LOL Here is my story: I am on 5 years probation on Florida. Every Monday and Friday I pick my friend up at his parents (his mother is very ill so he is taking care of her). So I pull up to his house (all white neighbor hood) and go to the door but as I am walking up there, he is just coming out. We get to the car and a Florida cop pulls up and ask us what we are doing. I told her I am picking up my friend to go to work. She told us to get in the car. Once we did, she holstered her pistol. She then ran our names and searched our car. However, my license came up suspended. I was arrested and taken to jail. I came to find out that a plea bargain I accepted months earlier for 1 day in jail time served, included a 2 year driving suspension because of a Florida Statute. I boned out and contacted my public defender and so she looked up the court papers I was given and sure enough, they had never informed me of this. No way would I have accepted the plea if I knew my licence was going to be suspended. But even though I was never told of this. there is nothing I can do about it. So now the arrest has violated my probation and I will have to do 3-5 years because of this mistake. I have a warrant for me now with no bond. What really sucks is I had completed all my classes and just had to make my monthly report. Also in December I would be finally getting my Masters but now it looks like this will not happen. My question is this. How can I sign a paper and a judge tell you that if you take a plea, this will be your punishment and 2 months later, they say they basically forgot to inform of all your punishment and I pay the price for it? To make matters even worse, when I was arrested for driving on the suspended licence, I gave my keys to my friends father. An hour later a cop pulls back up to the house and has my car towed to an impound lot that another cop on the force now owns. I should have never even taken the pleas to begin with but the public defender had my wife so scared because she told her if I lost I would be going to prison and then they are dangling this 1 day in jail in your face (which the day I was arrested was the one day in jail). In other words, I just go home and that is it. I just do not believe they would have taken it to trial because they already caught the officer in 2 lies and he did not even show up for the 1st deposition. Plus his dad was a big wig in the police department. I have no problem paying for the bad decisions in my life, but for those of you who do not believe there is corruption in our government are fools. It will not be long before the people start to realize this and the **** hits the fan. Everyday it happens to a person who's family never believed this but they soon find out. What gave the officer the right to pull up to the house and run our names and search our car with no permission. Just a few minths before this, the same cop pulled his 70 year old father over at 4:30 am while driving to pick up his 18 wheeler. The reason?? No one should be driving at that time of morning! And then gave him a ticket for improper valve stems on his tires. Not too long ago, I was pulled over just getting off the highway for no seetbelt. The deal the cop made to me was, if he could search my vehicle he would not issue me a ticket. So I let him of course. Once again before that I was pulled over while pulling out of a convenience store exceeding 20 seconds to pull out when there is no traffic. Is that really a law?? This I will admit is a lot of bad luck or at the wrong place at the wrong time. But mind you, all these actions happened except for one, at about 4:30 am going to work. If you are in central florida at that time on the road, try to stay on the highways. And speaking of highways, my wife and I travel on them about 10 miles a piece monday through friday. Each day we pay over $12 just to use them. The highway has it set up where the money can be taken directly out of your bank account or pay as you go.That is $3000 a year just to use the expressways. Now add the gas and the two of us pay about $30 a day just to get to work. Now that is not a piece but for both. But the $240 a month toll roads hurt. Now Orlando is trying to make the last and only highway left a toll road (I 4),

your anther moran I found on this site!! your all a bunch of losers. what do you mean the gov isn't nice to me? what have you done for the gove? have you ever volunteered for a good cause or do you sit at home with you potatoe chip belly (like me) and spout hate against the greatest gov of the entire world? get a job and call you mom. you'll feel better! what a waste of time this site is. you all should move to China and then your complaints would be founded.

History has shown us that all societies eventually fail. This one is no exception.Actions speak louder than words. So act!

I don't believe anything that my government tells me, actually any government.
