A Chip Off the Big Brother Block

Homeland Security calls it the "enhanced driver's license." That is a fairly bland name for a device that can tell Big Brother all about you even if the license stays in your wallet. Janet Napolitano, the new chief at Homeland Security, is all for this intrusive, Draconian (I borrowed that big word from Roger ), and invasive new form of national identification. It works a little like this... Your new license will be fitted with a radio frequency module that is thin and discreet. It will be uniform across the nation and the potential is endless. All of your vital information is on this chip. Height, weight, blood type, insurance policy number, criminal record and so on.

"Privacy advocates are issuing warnings about a new radio
chip plan that ultimately could provide electronic identification for every adult in the U.S. and allow agents to compile attendance lists at anti-government rallies simply by walking through the assembly." WND

Did you catch it? That's right. You could be at a legal function protesting rental housing code enforcement in little ole New Albany and a couple of NA's finest could mosey through the crowd and download every one's license with a hand held device. Quick, simple and dangerous. Your name and profile go into a database watch list as a person of interest. It is then linked to a state wide and national database so the authorities can make sure you do not cause problems. Do you think this sounds far fetched? It is already happening in Washington state. Wake up Sheeple.

Talk About Your Earmark, Bailing Out the Palestinians

Hillary announced today that the U.S. is pledging $900 million for the Palestinians. Folks, that is dang near a billion. I guess you could say our tax money will stimulate another jihad...

Promises, Promises

No pork, no special interests, change the way we do business in Washington...all lies that have escaped the mouth of the President. He has stated that his election meant the American people were "demanding that we restore a sense of responsibility." Is that right? This next quote is straight from his web site, http://www.barackobama.com/issues/fiscal/ ,"Cut Pork Barrel Spending: Obama introduced and passed bipartisan legislation that would require more disclosure and transparency for special-interest earmarks. Obama and Biden believe that spending that cannot withstand public scrutiny cannot be justified. Obama and Biden will slash earmarks to no greater than year 1994 levels and ensure all spending decisions are open to the public." Well now, Obama says he will sign the spending bill that keeps government working through September. Problem is that the bill contains over 8,600 special pork projects totalling over $7.7 billion.

What happened to his promise to reject the tailored budget lines specifically for pet projects? What happened to his pledges to expose the wasteful spending? What happened to changing Washington? What happened to change?
