Our inalienable right to freedom was front and center in the Declaration of Independence. How long will Americans accept being locked up and out of sight as a way of life just because it's convenient for Karl Rove and the Koch brothers? Did We The People get outsourced to Mumbai as well without anyone noticing?

It's wrong to blame a former administration for the current administration's problems. Unless, that is, you are blaming a FORMER administration for YOUR former administration's problems.

This should cause more than a few 'Bagger heads to explode.

I was arrogantly stepping my way through an upscale part of Los Angeles pretending to be interested in overpriced shirts, shoes, and underwear, when a muscular man sprung into my path. I jauntily sidestepped the bastard and I mumbled, I don't want any trouble, you overpriced shill. Lucky for me, he didn't hear what I said.
"Sir, can you take a minute to help us fight hate groups?" He was a tall black man in a red vest.
I've got no money for you, but sure, I said, I'll help. I write hate speech. It's how I make my living. I think it serves a purpose. So why not fight it? Bolster both sides. Give me the details.
He visually gathered himself and told me about his organization and how they take to court any group they consider a "hate group".
How do you define a hate group? I asked.
"It's not hard to tell," he said. "You just know it when you see it. We look at blogs, we follow the actions of certain groups and see if they are engaged in hate crimes or hate speech."
Sounds like a determined science, I said. I would scan a well-known blog called Dear Dirty America and inspect it for hate. Look deep. You'll see it. But if you take legal action against DDA, you'll have 10,000 bikers on your ass.
I gave him a stern look, and then I continued:

HAARP with its 180 transmission towers, that combine to emit a massive beam, of power and light, In a burst lasting more than a few minutes, it slices through the Ionosphere like a scalpel made of microwaves. This produces a long incision in this vital layer of the atmosphere. HAARP then heats large sections of the Ionosphere until they bulge to form a ‘curved lens’. This ‘curved lens’ reflects HAARP’s massive energy beams, back to earth to destroy selected targets. Presumably without leaving even a trace of what caused the devastation. Except for the strange circular cloud formations that occur once the ‘curved lens’ is created. Think about the movie Independence Day when the White House was obliterated by the alien Spaceship hovering above. Well HAARP works like that beam from the spaceship. However you don’t need to hover over your target or even be seen. HAARP directs the beam from space and you can’t even prove it was HAARP. Wow! Thats scary at the same time.http://rtruth.blog.com/2011/09/12/collateral-damage-uncovering-haarp/ HAARP with... more
The story goes like this: Reagan was able to finally win the Cold War and drive a stake through the heart of the Evil Empire because he realized that the Soviet economy was already badly overextended trying to prop up the war machine. All he had to do was accelerate the arms race, dramatically increasing military spending (while also amping up the sabre-rattling rhetoric) and that would force the Russkis to bankrupt themselves trying to compete.The story goes like this: Reagan was able to finally win the Cold War and drive a... more
TeaPublicans are never more ignorant, or their pandering more obvious, than when they are performing in the shadow of the great Ronald Reagan. This week's GOP primary debate had its fill of extremism, anti-social program posturing, and typical attacks on the poor.

Mike Papantonio appears on MSNBC’s The Ed Show to talk about the Republicans’ response to the ousting of Gaddafi in Libya. Yet again, the crazy conservatives are attacking the president because he didn’t follow Bush’s “shock doctrine” of shoot first, look for oil, and then ask questions.

A good article on both sides of the second amendment gun control debate.
Obviously, the 2nd Amendment is going to play very heavily in the 2012 debate with the possibility of a total financial collapse on the horizon, anti-2nd Amendment groups are likely to try and capitalize on that in the unfortunate event that it happens.
It was May 2, 1967, and the Black Panthers’ invasion of the California statehouse launched the modern gun-rights movement. On the west lawn of the state capitol in Sacramento 30 young black men and women [arrived] carrying .357 Magnums, 12-gauge shotguns, and .45-caliber pistols. The 24 men and six women climbed the capitol steps, and one man, Bobby Seale, began to read from a prepared statement. “The time has come for black people to arm themselves against this terror before it is too late.”
Opposition to gun control as what drove the black militants to visit the California capitol with loaded weapons in hand. The Black Panther Party had been formed six months earlier, in Oakland, by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. Like many young African Americans, Newton and Seale were frustrated with the failed promise of the civil-rights movement. Brown v. Board of Education, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were legal landmarks, but they had yet to deliver equal opportunity. In Newton and Seale’s view, the only tangible outcome of the civil-rights movement had been more violence and oppression, much of it committed by the very entity meant to protect and serve the public: the police.
Inspired by the teachings of Malcolm X, Newton and Seale decided to fight back. Before he was assassinated in 1965, Malcolm X had preached against Martin Luther King Jr.’s brand of nonviolent resistance. Because the government was “either unable or unwilling to protect the lives and property” of blacks, he said, they had to defend themselves “by whatever means necessary.” Malcolm X illustrated the idea for Ebony magazine by posing for photographs in suit and tie, peering out a window with an M-1 carbine semiautomatic in hand. Malcolm X and the Panthers described their right to use guns in self-defense in constitutional terms. “Article number two of the constitutional amendments,” Malcolm X argued, “provides you and me the right to own a rifle or a shotgun.”
The Pathers’ efforts provoked an immediate backlash. Republicans in California eagerly supported increased gun control. Governor Reagan told reporters that afternoon that he saw “no reason why on the street today a citizen should be carrying loaded weapons.” He called guns a “ridiculous way to solve problems that have to be solved among people of good will.” In a later press conference, Reagan said he didn’t “know of any sportsman who leaves his home with a gun to go out into the field to hunt or for target shooting who carries that gun loaded.” The Mulford Act, he said, “would work no hardship on the honest citizen.”A good article on both sides of the second amendment gun control debate.... more
Today we did what we had to do. They counted on America to be passive. They counted wrong -- Ronald Reagan
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done -- Ronald Reagan
History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap. -- Ronald Reagan
The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or the next. It was the deep knowledge -- and pray to God we have not lost it -- that there is a profound moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest -- Ronald Reagan
Putting people first has always been America's secret weapon. It's the way we've kept the spirit of our revolutions alive—a spirit that drives us to dream and dare, and take great risks for a greater good -- Ronald Reagan
Regimes planted by bayonets do not take root -- Ronald Reagan
America is too great for small dreams -- Ronald Reagan
I've spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still. -- Ronald Reagan
And how stands the city on this winter night? More prosperous, more secure, and happier than it was 8 years ago. But more than that: After 200 years, two centuries, she still stands strong and true on the granite ridge, and her glow has held steady no matter what storm. And she's still a beacon, still a magnet for all who must have freedom, for all the pilgrims from all the lost places who are hurtling through the darkness, toward home." -- Ronald Reagan
Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong -- Ronald Reagan
We are especially not going to tolerate these attacks from outlaw states run by the strangest collection of misfits, Looney Tunes and squalid criminals since the advent of the Third Reich -- Ronald Reagan
We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we may always be free -- Ronald Reagan
They say the world has become too complex for simple answers. They are wrong. There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right. Winston Churchill said that "the destiny of man is not measured by material computation. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we are spirits -- not animals." And he said, "There is something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty -- Ronald Reagan
The ultimate determinate in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas - a trial of spiritual resolve; the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideas to which we are dedicated -- Ronald Reagan
A leader, once convinced a particular course of action is the right one, must have the determination to stick with it and be undaunted when the going gets rough -- Ronald Reagan
I have seen the rise and fall of Nazi tyranny, the subsequent cold war and the nuclear nightmare that for fifty years haunted the dreams of children everywhere. During that time my generation defeated totalitarianism. As a result, your world is poised for better tomorrows. What will you do on your journey? -- Ronald Reagan
[N]o arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women -- Ronald Reagan
The Democrats say that the United States has had its days in the sun, that our nation has passed its zenith. They expect you to tell your children that the American people no longer have the will to cope with their problems, that the future will be one of sacrifice and few opportunities. My fellow citizens, I utterly reject that view. -- Ronald Reagan
I hope that when you're my age you'll be able to say, as I have been able to say: we lived in freedom, we lived lives that were a statement, not an apology -- Ronald Reagan
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free -- Ronald Reagan
In closing, let me thank you, the American people, for giving me the great honor of allowing me to serve as your president. When the Lord calls me home, whenever that day may be, I will leave with the greatest love for this country of ours and eternal optimism for its future. I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead. -- Ronald Reagan http://rightwingnews.com/quotes/reagan.phpToday we did what we had to do. They counted on America to be passive.

A little known left-wing terrorist group called Thunder Overhead is taking responsibility for stealing Ronald Reagan's remains from the eponymous presidential library in Simi Valley, California. The story surrounding the Reagan remains is still developing while conservatives nationwide gather to pray that the Gipper's body is safely returned.
