Ebay Guilty of Extreme PC Censorship

Jim Carrey Backlash on eBay for His Anti-Gun Video Mysteriously Disappears - The Hollywood Reporter

We are truly in a cultural PC war. The auction site Ebay took down auctions to sell items that were described by the auctioners as "so I can by a gun with the proceeds".  Really? That's worse than a suspension from school for a pistol shaped Pop Tart!

The aggressiveness of thought and speech control in our society is out of control. And it does matter. We cannot let these forces harrass us into compliance.

As the Isley Bros once said, "Fight the Power!"

Sometimes Things Don't Get Better 'til They Get Worse

The Obamacare Revolt: Physicians Fight Back Against the Bureaucratization of Health Care - Reason.com

Now that the practice of medicine is becoming untenable, people are finally willing to make tough decisions to extract themselves from the system and go back to the best service exchange model known - direct provider to consumer.

Funny how warped the system has to become before people are willing to risk the change and enjoy the benefits. Interestingly, it's benefits go both ways. The consumer (patient) benefits at least as much as the doctor. There's no worse health care that that provided by a frustrated, bureaucratically hamstrung practitioner whose primary concern is regulatory requirements and standards set by Governemnt bureaucrats that know little or nothing about medical care. There's no better health care than that provided by a happy, fulfilled professional whose sole interest is providing the best care possible for his patients and reaping the rewards of that superior care.

Voluntary direct exchange fee for service. What an insane idea. I love it!

Radical, hateful right wing "liking"

More Stupidity in Stamford, Connecticut - The Rush Limbaugh Show

Typical lame-stream media. They can't get even spoon-fed stories right any more. Good thing it doesn't really matter. It's getting to be a joke. I want to see how silly they can make themselves look. I'm sure I won't be disappointed.

Governments to citizens: What's mine is mine and what's yours is mine!

Cyprus bail-out: live - Telegraph

Ultimately the citizens always pay for their Government, whether they want to or not. You cannot raid the treasury ceaselessly without getting to the point that, as Margaret Thatcher once said, "You eventually run out of other people's money".

The problem is we vote ourselves money thinking it's from the other people that either don't deserve to keep their money, or have so much, we believe they shouldn't care. We mistakenly believe that somehow it's the right thing to do and can go on ad infinitum. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter how correct we think our mistakes are. Like drinking poison you sincerely believe is Dr Pepper, it still kills you.

The piper is coming for his payment...

This Could Never happen here! Could it?

Cyprus deal shock sends shares tumbling, gold up - Yahoo! Finance

When the going gets tough, Governments get going. They do whatever it takes to feed themselves. Including closing banks, taking the citizens money in banks or anything else that becomes necessary. Cypriots can't get to their own money for the time being, and when the Government lets them, it will be less due to the illegal confiscation.

That could never happen here! Or could it?
