Ladies and Gentlemen. May I please have your attention?
I’ve just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story and I need all of you to stop what you’re doing and listen.
CANNONBALL! Ron Burgundy!
The State of the World… I don’t even know where to begin this rant on how we are either hopelessly screwed or face a new beginning- either way- as Bob Dylan said, “The times they are a changing!”
From the “Don’t They Have Something Else Better to Do” file comes this; Republicans in New York State think that the safety of their citizenry is being compromised by anonymous blog commenters. You know the types. And nearly half the Reps in New York’s legislature have signed onto an UNCONSTITUIONAL bill which would force web pages, social media sites and online newspapers to delete any anonymous comments under penalty of law.
All in the name of “CyberBullying.
I think the politicians just want to be able to find out where you live should you have the temerity to question their leadership. If passed- this will be another piece of legislation that the courts will have to save us from.
Like the Honorable Judge Katherine Forrest just did when she struck down the provisions of the “National Defense Authorization Act”, authorizing Americans to be held without bail, legal representation, or being able to confront their accusers if the Executive Branch of Government deemed they’re a “terrorist.”
I’m telling you- Judges are the only thing standing in the way of a Fascist Police State.
Look at Chicago during the NATO Summit if you don’t believe me.
That had a security presence similar to the old East Germany. Does it still feel like this Country is the World beacon of freedom or more like we’re turning totalitarian? The First Amendment guarantees freedom of assembly and I didn’t see the Government doing anything to preserve that right during the “Conference of Warlords”
Things are also getting interesting in the world of money.
The European Union is getting ready to implode and I can’t wait. The Greek elections coming up on June 17th may just put the final nail in the coffin of this silly experiment. When the socialist and anti-austerity party, Syriza, takes over- the NWO banksters in Europe will be on the run. The great economist Milton Friedman gave the Euro 10-20 years before it collapses, and his prediction is right on schedule.
Meanwhile back here in the USA- I think KC Confidential needs to start a “Dead Pool” on which State goes bankrupt first. Unike the Federal Government, the States can’t run deficits and must balance their budgets. My money is on my home state of California which is running a $17 BILLION dollar deficit and is being driven into the ground by my favorite liberal- Edmund G. Brown, JR. He should know better than to think you can tax and spend your way into prosperity. Btw, Michigan and Illinois are running a close second.
And to any suckers who bought stock in Facebook, did you really think that investing in a CIA Data Mining operation was gonna put your kids through college? Sorry CIA- You know I love you- just spy on the rest of the World and not Americans and your agencies crest will always be on my refrigerator.
Concert Review Time: Kool & the Gang blew Van Halen off the stage- even without JT singing lead. Don’t get me wrong, Eddie Van Halen’s guitar solos are still a quasi-religious experience, but Diamond Dave’s voice is shot. Maybe 30 concerts really have been postponed on this tour because of fatigue and not the usual prima donna rock star internecine warfare.
Good Day and Have a Pleasant Tomorrow!
