At least 9 dead, dozens wounded in Chicago during holiday weekend shootings | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it

Skip Stein's insight:

Chicago, that which spawned Obama and his regime.  Corrupt and crime ridden and the strongest gun control city in the Nation.  Doesn't that tell you something about the 'model city' that the Obama regime and his political syndicate want to foster on the rest of America?

Militarized police gone wild across America; terrorizing citizens, shooting pet dogs, behaving like occupying military force
Skip Stein's insight:

The 'powers that be' must be getting scared.  They are unleashing the 'dogs of war' upon us.  I have the greatest respect for law officers who risk their lives every day, but there are more and more 'rogue' ones that don't understand, were never trained or just plain ignore OUR CONSTITUTION.  The voilence is WAY more than called for.  Obama has armed DHS, the IRS and other agencies too the teeth with leghal weapons that are not usually needed to enforce accounting rules and daily lives.  The millions of rounds of 'hollow points' are NOT used for target practice; they are too expensive and it is a waste of money. Hollow point rounds are ONLY good for killing/maiming people.  I always use standard rounds and keep my 'traveling' magazines loaded with hollow points when I go out.  The one in my bed holster also has the first round hollow point the rest are frangible so they won't carry beyond my home.

Legalizing marijuana is hard. Regulating a pot industry is even harder.

Legalizing marijuana is hard. Regulating a pot industry is even harder. | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
Washington state is trying to figure out how to regulate its newly legal pot market. That means thinking about everything from monpolists to taxes to advertising.
Skip Stein's insight:
 Don't we have enough bureaucratic idiot agencies now?  Why not ATF or some other agency. Do we regulate the cotton industry, hemp is just a competing fiber... oh wait, 'competing fiber' is the key word.  Forget about the THC drug impact it is the FIBER that they are trying to prevent!  It challenges cotton, and the other 'oil based' material industries.  Go figure.  It is all another smoke screen IMHO.

Skip Stein's insight:

Rubio could have gotten himself in a real pickle.  He may have to really fight to hold his Senate seat.  Right now, I'm looking for alternatives as he caved on immigration.  Comprimise is one thing but caving and the ridiculous SIZE of this immigration bill (like most) is so complex and convoluted no one really understands what it means.  KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid is a better rule for law!

'Train wreck' Obamacare begins to unravel; massive government boondoggle set to self-destruct by 2015

'Train wreck' Obamacare begins to unravel; massive government boondoggle set to self-destruct by 2015
Skip Stein's insight:

This is all political maneuvering that ANYONE should be able to see.  Obamacare is a disaster and he is desperately trying to salvage some semblance of his presidency as Obama regime goes down in flames.  Scandal after scandal, mismanagement and malfeasance, horrible murders with drone attacks instead of the surgical strikes with which the US Military are expert.  On and on this regime and the supporting Democrats continue to ignore OUR Constitution and dismantle the very FREEDOM foundations that the USA was founded upon!  NO MORE.. Start NOW to support the Constitutional Conservatives (no matter what party) for the 2014 elections that so terrify Obama and his cohorts.  Then the Obama regime will surely crumble into dust and forever be the bane of American History.

'World order unjust and immoral!' Ecuador’s Correa rips into Snowden coverage

'World order unjust and immoral!' Ecuador’s Correa rips into Snowden coverage | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa came up with scalding online remarks over criticism his country faced from the US press for potentially granting asylum to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.
Skip Stein's insight:

Not even the NSA can hide any longer.  The tech that they use to watch US can also be reversed against THEM.  INFORMATION is king and as long as no one ownes the TRUTH it can be given freely!  That is why a FREE and OPEN Internet is crucial to the Planet's survival.  No more secrets and spying, open disclosure of the evils by all parties expose them to the light and can help reduce/eliminate the struggle for Power as Freedom triumphs.

We need encryption for private communications

We need encryption for private communications | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
Jeff Jarvis: Technology companies should offer encryption for email, VOIP and other communications. Trust in the internet is at stake
Skip Stein's insight:

How much would you pay?  Can you ever be assured of true privacy?  It's a step in the right direction but I think only individually encrypted messaging and data storage (not outsourced) will ever insure even a modicum of privacy.

Everyone is worried about the wrong things.
Skip Stein's insight:

As long as there are codes, there will be code breakers.  It's been going on for centuries.  It is a mind game of code and decode.  From Enigma to PGP is just keeps getting more sophisticated but always the same; privacy is something sought by everyone.  While I don't really have anything to hide, I do not want the government in my business, nor anyone else for that matter.  Information is POWER and the government never stops seeking MORE POWER and CONTROL over US!
