Police storm homeschool class, take children by force

Four children, ages 7 to 14, have been forcibly taken from their Darmstadt, Germany, home by police armed with a battering ram, and their parents have been told they won’t see them again soon, all over the issue of homeschooling, according to a stunning new report from the Home School Legal Defense Association.

Clearly a cell of sociopaths…

“The children were taken to unknown locations,” HSLDA said. “Officials ominously promised the parents that they would not be seeing their children anytime soon.”

“The Butler” – I Grew Up in the 1960’s…

And Don’t Recall Any of That Race Shit Being Important…

The Butler’s negative reimagination comes at a real social cost. Watching the movie, the viewer comes away thinking that the civil rights movement has largely failed. But the actual record is more upbeat. It is unfortunate that Daniels did not start The Butler during the Truman years. In 1948, Truman decided to desegregate the U.S. armed forces by executive order.

My quarrel with The Butler is that its wrong narrative of the evolution of race relations serves to strengthen a set of misguided government programs at a time when it is no longer possible to bless all actions of the civil rights movement.

I do recall sending men to moon, transistor radios and Woodstock…

The military would be empowered to maintain that “public order.”

Japan’s “Stealth Constitution” Destroys Civil Rights

Can they be any more clear about what they are trying to achieve?

One proposal would ban anyone from “improperly” acquiring or using information about individuals – a clause experts say could limit freedom of speech.

Under Article 96, changes to the constitution must be approved by at least two-thirds of both houses of parliament and then a majority of voters in a national referendum. Abe wants to require a simple majority of lawmakers before a public vote.

It’s probably nothing…

The goal won’t be to arrest troubled people but to get them help

The goal will be avoiding crime — and making sure law enforcement knows about potential powder kegs before tragedies occur, Bradshaw said. But the earmark, which is a one-time-only funding provision, provoked a debate Monday among mental health advocates and providers about the balance between civil liberties, privacy and protecting the public.

“We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him,” Bradshaw said.

Nothing to worry about – we have “assurances”…

got assurances from the sheriff that this is going to be done in a way that respects people’s autonomy and privacy, and that he makes sure to protect against people making false claims.”

They’re coming for your guns…

The Role of Government

4 Oct

Mitt Romney dispatched Obama with ease and grace last night – overlooked by most was his articulation of his conservative beliefs when asked to describe the role of government.

 

 

Too many on the right have called Romney’s “conservatism” into question since the primaries, playing into the hands of the Obama campaign and the media that Romney is a fraud or a flip-flopper.  This is not the case – however even if you can’t buy Romney’s conservative bona fides… it beats the hell out of this…
