LIBERAL DEMOCRATS WANT SOCIALIST AMERICA-ONE OF THEM SAID SO!

We have here just one more bit of proof of how the liberal Democrats want to turn America into a socialist country with the government running private enterprise.  Here’s more proof using my favorite method, straight from the proverbial horse’s mouth.

‘BOUT TIME TO FIRE ‘EM ALL!

Pay particular attention to what he says starting at 3:05. Very true.

“CHANGE & HOPE” STRIKES AGAIN

Obama’s refusal to listen to any plan other than one that would raise the debt ceiling once again so they can spend, spend, spend, has left us with just “change.” For the first time in our history, the U. S. has lost its AAA credit rating.  

FIRST DEARBORN, NOW TORONTO

I just saw this post by Debbie Schlussel and our loss of freedom continues in the name of appeasing the Muslims. After all, we have to be VERY sure we are sensitive to their religious beliefs and customs, but it’s OK to offend and publicly ridicule Christans.  Here is her POST:

It’s Over: Toronto Police Help Muslim Mob Punch Man w/ Camera

This is in Canada, but if you think it can’t, won’t, or hasn’t already happened here in the U.S., you need to get your head out of the sand.  Apparently, you cannot take pictures in a public place anymore .  .  . when Muslims are involved.  Yup, when Muslims are involved, all democracy, all freedoms, all rights go out the window . . . because, hey, we might offend them.

David Menzies Assaulted By Muslims Who Are Defended by Dhimmi Toronto Cops
David Menzies, a Toronto freelance writer, writes this excellent and frightening Toronto Sun column about how a Muslim woman in a hijab punched him for daring to take a photo (and not of her).  The nerve of him. But it gets worse. The dhimmi Toronto Police defend the Muslim woman for punching him and trying to destroy his camera. Oh, and the Arab Muslim mob acts like they are in Saudi Arabia’s “Chop Chop Square” and it’s jihad time.
What constitutes a physical assault in Toronto these days? . . . I learned firsthand on Sunday, a fist in the face doesn’t necessarily constitute assault in our increasingly culturally sensitive Toronto.
The details: I was at Yonge-Dundas Square with my nine-year-old son. We ate pizza. We drank bubble tea. And I used my new Canon camera to take photos of this neon shrine.
Suddenly, a woman wearing a hijab ran toward me. She was part of a group that included two women wearing full face-covering burkas. She was screaming: “We are Muslim! You do not take pictures of us!” (Odd. I can’t find the “no photos” rule in the Qur’an.)
I informed the lady I was in a public square in a democracy. I can actually take pictures of whomever I please.
And then: Ka-pow! Her fist collided with my face. Worse, she almost knocked my new camera from my hands.
My son and I were then surrounded by a mob of about 20 people, many of whom were speaking Arabic. One kept demanding I surrender my camera to him.
It was surreal. Was I in Toronto — or Riyadh?
It could be Dearbornistan or Minneapolis.
I spotted a group of bicycle-mounted police officers. I burst through the mob with my son and made a beeline towards them. I told a Toronto Police officer what had happened and I wanted to press assault charges.
Better yet, a man and a woman came forward as eyewitnesses.
The 50-something couple, originally from Syria, told the police they had observed the entire affair and my allegations were true. The couple said they understood Arabic and knew what the mob was saying.
Alas, my Spidey Senses started to tingle when I overheard the questions being asked of the witnesses. “Was it a closed-fist punch or an open hand? Was it the front or the back of the hand?”
Huh? Physical contact had been made. Why did severity matter?
After the officer took my statement, he went over to the offending woman. Another constable was inexplicably miffed I was (legally) taking photos in the first place. The irony: Just above our heads a Toronto Police Service sphere was videotaping the activities.
The officer interrogated the woman. She was still hysterical. Good. The constable would encounter firsthand what I had been forced to deal with earlier.
The cop walked back to me. No charges would be laid, he said, because he believed the woman’s story — namely, she was merely trying to knock the camera out of my hands.
Got that? Apparently, attempted property damage is OK. If a face gets in the way of a would-be vandalizing fist… hey, accidents happen.
The Syrian eyewitnesses were speechless. I continued to plead my case.
Toronto Police cruisers are emblazoned with the slogan, “To serve and protect”. But increasingly, the unofficial slogan seems closer to, “F.I.D.O.” (“Forget It; Drive On.”)
The fact we have Islamists living amongst us who despise western values isn’t news. But surely you can’t just sock someone in the mouth.
Well, apparently you can — as long as the intent of the aggressor was merely to inflict property damage.
Happy Ramadan, everyone! And say good-bye, North America. I used to say we were 10 or 20 years behind Europe when it comes to collapsing under the weight of Islam and Muslims.
But we’re getting there faster than that. Time to get fitted for a keffiyeh.
This is yet one more fine example of the “religion of peace” that is enjoying more and more privileges the rest of free society does not enjoy.  Can you imagine what it would have been like if a Christian had done this very same thing in the name of his/her religious beliefs?  There wouldn’t have been the excuse-making or glossing over and making assault OK.  That Christian would have been under the jail.  Laws seem to increasingly not apply to Muslims.
Those who think they are “tolerant” will have the same loss of rights and be subjected to the same treatment.  This is something the liberal left doesn’t understand.  There is no tolerance for liberalism or any other ideology under Muslim rule, only Islam.


OUR FOOD SUPPLY UNDER ATTACK . . . AGAIN

Once again, another attack on our food supply by government. This time it’s the U. S. Department of Transportation.  Specifically, The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which is a part of USDOT,  wants to reclassify farm vehicles as commercial motor vehicles, and require anyone operating any type of farm equipment to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License (SOURCE).  Farm vehicle operators could possibly even have to keep logs like truck drivers limiting the amount of time they spend operating the tractor or whatever which would include mandatory downtime.

Here is a report filed by KXXV-TV in Waco, Texas.
There are a few things to think about here.  One, this is more regulation by unelected government officials.  Such arbitrary regulation by government agencies bypasses the entire legislative process and therefore bypasses the will of We The People.  You notice that neither the FMCSA nor USDOT brought this before Congress which is by design.  Next, what is considered a farm vehicle could be extended to pick-up trucks and even ATV’s used by many farmers. 

 And what about garden tractors that are used part of the time for plowing and cultivating gardens?  As precedents have already been set in some localities, someone selling produce from their garden can be considered having a commercial farming operation.  As we all know, government regulations are never static, but always expand annually.  Quietly, without Congressional approval.  It’s not hard to see how far reaching this proposal could go.  Like the farmer in the video said, how is the driving test going to be administered? Drive the tractor to the Department of Public Safety?  Government getting crazier, again.

The next thing to consider is the authority granted to government under this proposal.  If enacted, the authorities would have the power to come onto private property to check to make sure that anyone driving a tractor, pick-up truck, ATV, lawn tractor, or any other vehicle being used for any type of food production had a CDL.  Imagine getting a ticket for driving a tractor on a privately owned farm for not having a CDL.

For what few family farms are left, this would prove to be the final nail in the coffin to drive them out of business entirely.  Requiring a CDL would keep other family members from operating farm machinery until they were 21 years old.  Eighteen, nineteen, and twenty year olds would be able to drive a car from coast-to-coast, but not a tractor on their dad’s farm.  The cost of hiring professional drivers would be prohibitive.  The large agricultural companies would pass on the cost to the consumer, meaning the cost of food would go up . . . again.

Where this threatens our food supply is the cost of implementation.  More family farms would be driven out of business reducing our domestic food production even more than over the past thirty-five years or so.  There has been a consistent pattern over the past few years of the government attempting to exert more and more control over the food supply, everything from classifying a garden as a commercial farming operation to outright raids on food co-ops and feeding the poor organizations.  

What I would like to hear from someone at the USDOT is the purpose of these new regulations – on paper that is.  We all know the real purpose.
