America Just Became A Defacto Dictatorship

I cannot begin to convey the extreme seriousness of what has just happened in America. President Bush has been authorized by Congress to become the United States first Dictator. This is NOT hyperbole, I wish it was.

The Constitutional guarantees, afforded to every single US citizen have just been utterly and completely destroyed. Under this new legislation, NO AMERICAN has any protections WHATSOEVER under the Bill of Rights or the US Constitution. NONE. [...] Read More

AP Story

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate on Thursday endorsed President Bush’s plans to prosecute and interrogate terror suspects, all but sealing congressional approval for legislation that Republicans intend to use on the campaign trail to assert their toughness on terrorism.The 65-34 vote means the bill could reach the president’s desk by week’s end. The House passed nearly identical legislation on Wednesday and was expected to approve the Senate bill on Friday, sending it on to the White House.

Cops Kill Another Dog – and other Sundry News

At least they didn’t stomp the cat.

Habeas Corpus, R.I.P.

No people, no matter where they reside, should have to live in fear of their own government. Nowhere should the midnight knock foreshadow a nightmare of state-commissioned crime. The suffering of torture victims must end, and the United States calls on all governments to assume this great mission. President Bush[...] Read More

Future Prep – Part V

Shelter

Modern home design has advanced in recent years to include super-efficient energy saving features. While this is really good, the cost of such a home is above astronomical. You will need high efficiency, but you don’t need a mortgage that drowns you in a sea of debt.

A better way is to build you own home. Many people who don’t think they can do this are surprised at how affordable and easy it can be. I’m a strong advocate of earth sheltered designs, using a combination of natural building materials. These homes offer the lowest cost alternatives to box houses and are much more personable and efficient and will last much longer.[...] Read More

Essentials of Survival

I’m putting this pointer right up at the top, because it’s timely and important. If you’re still driving a gas hog of a vehicle, now is the last time to be the best time to sell it. You have about two months, tops to get rid of it. Gas prices will never be this cheap again. Dump it and move on into something highly economical. Gas prices will return back to their lofty heights.[...] Read More

More Warnings

The news isn’t good these days, except for the temporarily falling gas prices.  There will be gigantic, global repercussions to the US torture scandal, particularily felt here at home, by Americans. What the US government has now done is made it permissible to torture whoever it likes, whenever it likes, as long as it likes, without absolutely NO accountability to anyone, anywhere. Now codified into law, the US government has finally received the sanction it wanted to stop pretending that it cares about human rights – or humans at all.James Bovard, author of Freedom in Chains (read it while you still can), declares that America is a Banana Republic in the United States of Barbarism. This is exactly what I have warning about – the US government will now have ‘legal authority’ to detain, torture and silence anyone that it declares a ‘threat’ for any reason with complete impunity.
