Judge Napolitano: Government Can Steal Your Money

In order to fund a bailout of Cyprus, European leaders have proposed the institution of a tax on bank deposits for residents of the small island nation. A vote is expected on the plan on Tuesday.

Cypriots rushed to pull their money out of banks and ATMs before the tiny Mediterranean nation’s government could finalize a plan to seize depositors’ funds to satisfy austerity demands from euro zone leaders, sparking a run that prompted banks to be closed until at least Thursday.

The island nation’s leaders were huddling to come up with a way to soften the blow on average depositors, with one proposal targeting accounts with deposits above $130,000.

So, could the same thing happen in America? Judge Napolitano says yes. “The people who have more than $100,000 in the bank are targets for any government that’s looking for money to shore up its own inability to manage its finances.”

What The Founding Fathers Believed About Homosexuality

Freedom Outpost

I have made  no bones about the fact that the ultimate authority on the issue of  homosexuality is the Bible and it is crystal clear in condemning it.  If others  want to cite polls and commentaries and “experts” to attempt to bolster their  claim in favor of homosexuality they are welcome to do so.  However, what I find  a bit disingenuous are those that will talk about rights within the context of  the Constitution, which was written by men, not God as though the men who wrote  it and backed it would have sided with practicing homosexuals today on the issue  of marriage.  I can tell you that the issue of marriage would have never been  addressed as it is today, simply because the view of homosexuality was addressed  first, thus making the point of same-sex “marriage” a ridiculous notion.

Weasel Zippers

The anti-gun hysteria continues.

MANASSAS, Va. (CBSDC) — A server at Buffalo Wild Wings refused to serve Prince William County police officers because they had their guns displayed.

The Manassas Park Patch reports that the employee wouldn’t serve them despite the plain-clothes officers showing him their badges. The server reportedly told the officers that it was a gun-free establishment.

Is this really the time to talk about gay marriage?

American Thinker

Why  are we even talking about gay marriage?  Don’t we, as a nation, have much  larger fish to fry?

We’re  wallowing in debt, our government is doing everything in its power to destroy  our energy sector and drive up the price  we have to pay to heat and cool our homes and businesses as well as our costs to commute to and from work  (if we’re fortunate or foolish enough in the bizzaro world of Obama to have a  job) and to move our goods and services to market.

They’re  doing all they can to not only prop up, but also arm to the teeth, Islamist  regimes throughout the middle east and north Africa whose sole purpose in life  is to destroy us. Our education system (I use this term very loosely) is  swirling down the toilet, most of our cities and states, not to mention our  federal government, have unfunded liabilities in the trillions of dollars.  Obamacare is simultaneously destroying our existing health  insurance industry, our health delivery systems, and the businesses that  most rational people would hope would be providing jobs to working class  Americans, but instead are expected to pick up the tab for this steaming pile of  ‘government’ (thus rendering them much less able to provide those  jobs).

Law  abiding citizens can’t buy bullets because DHS is scarfing them up like we’re on  the verge of Armageddon (any prophecy here is unintended but not necessarily  inaccurate,) so what the hell, let’s talk about gay marriage.

 

As  long as we are talking about gay marriage, shouldn’t LBGTs have the right to be  just as miserable as the rest of us?

US Funds $880,000 Study of Snails

(CNSNews.com) – The National Science Foundation awarded a grant for $876,752  to the University of Iowa to study whether there is any benefit to sex among New  Zealand mud snails and whether that explains why any organism has sex.

The study, first funded in 2011 and continuing until 2015, will study the New  Zealand snails to see if it is better that they reproduce sexually or asexually – the snail can do both – hoping to gain insight on why so many organisms  practice sexual reproduction.

Obama’s Religious Freedom Appointee Involved In Muslim Event Calling For Limits To First Amendment Rights…

Weasel Zippers

Try and contain your shock and amazement.

(CNSNews.com) – America’s free-speech model is in desperate need of an update, says an American-Muslim human rights activist who recently spoke at an event linked to an Obama administration appointee. Dr. Qasim Rashid argued that cyber-bullying laws could be used to limit freedom of expression – such as the burning of Korans — in war time:

“When a nation is at war, many things that might be said in times of peace are a hindrance to this effort,” Rashid said on March 19 at Howard University. “And their utterance will not be endured so long as men fight and…no court can regard them as protected by any constitutional right.”

Rashid began his remarks by personally thanking Dr. Azizah al-Hibri, appointed by President Barack Obama to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) in June 2011. Al-Hibri founded Karamah, a group devoted to the rights of Muslim women, and it was this group that invited Rashid to speak.

Obama Ignores Nullification, Says Federal Agents Will Enforce Obamacare

Freedom Outpost

In a move that is reminiscent of the tyrannical actions of Abraham Lincoln  that led to the War of Northern Aggression, Barack Obama says that he will not  wait on states to enforce Obamacare.   Instead his administration has announced  its intent is to completely disregard the state’s Tenth Amendment rights to  nullification of the Obamacare law, via their passed legislation and state  constitutions.  In fact, his administration has said that in states where they  refuse to comply with federal healthcare mandates that agents from the  Department of Health and Human Services will assume absolute control over the  state’s health insurance industry.
