SPIN METER: GOP Debates Nonexistent Dust Rule

Environmental Protection Agency officials have said — over and over again — that they won’t propose new regulations to limit dust kicked up by farm equipment. But anti-regulation sentiment is strong this year on the campaign trail, and real or not, House Republicans are planning to vote this week to prevent such regulations.

‘Occupy’ Protesters Listed As Domestic Terrorists | Demand Transformation | Scoop.it

Occupy London demonstrators have been listed as domestic terrorists by the City of London Police, who characterized them in the same context as Al-Qaeda, the Colombian FARC and Belarusian terrorists who bombed the Minsk underground.

When Governments Go Rogue | ZeroHedge | Demand Transformation | Scoop.it
Let us finally be honest with ourselves and say it out loud; our government is not Constitutional!  It has become a mutation.  A monstrosity.  A malformed creature given birth by the oozing genetic material of mad social scientists hell bent on dominating the building blocks of our political life.  It is a thing to be abhorred, not admired, and certainly not to be trusted.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.

 

Response to the Occupy movement has proven our Corporate controlled Government is willing and quite capable of turning US troops against the citizenry.

 

We have seen with our own eyes no shortage of policemen willing to attack their fellow citizens; they have beaten peaceful protesters with batons, pepper sprayed them (with casual abandon), thrown tear gas canisters (seriously injuring Iraq war veteran Scott Olsen), and arrested huge numbers of Americans exercising basic constitutional rights.

At the local level, the same governments that plead poverty when they’re asked to enforce their laws on financial fraud have somehow found plenty of resources to deploy their militarized police forces against Occupy protesters.

 

At the federal level, it’s even more blatant. As we learned in a little-noticed Washington Post piece on Tuesday, the same Obama administration that has refused to spend political capital and federal monies to go after Wall Street is expending new resources to crack down on the supposedly rampant problem of food stamp “fraud.”
