Boston police head says drones instead of choppers a great idea

Boston police head says drones instead of choppers a great idea | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
Skip Stein's insight:

Tech will be used by Law Enforcement; it is inevitable, cost effective and more efficient use of manpower (not to mention fuel).  The use of these by other 'agencies' and by law enforcement should be RESTRICTED to only lawful uses; not general 'observations' of citizens.  Use 'in pursuit of a criminal' or in lawful (search warranted) surveillance should be tightly controlled.

 

There are wonderful technologies that we have now and that will come to be available and they should be utilized in lawful purposes.  It is the over-use and miss-use of these that threatens our privacy further (already invaded at every turn) and illicit surveillance for the sake of surveillance must be restrained (or it will be 'open season on drones'!).

Sugar-laced soda increases diabetes risk by 22 percent
Skip Stein's insight:

Don't think that the 'diet' version as the 'sugar substitutes' have been shown to cause cancer!  You are actually better off drinking the sugar based drink by a slight margin.  The 'sugar' is often sources from GMO (genetically modified organisms) so you get a double whammy, sugar and genetic pesticides.  Oh joy!

 

Why not drink WATER?  Most people do not get anywhere near the necessary of pure healthy WATER to flush their systems of toxins.  Why add to the problem.

 

Just stop drinking this crap.  Safe you lots of money.  Tea, Coffee, and other natural drinks are WAY healthier! 

 

Remember, ALWAYS read the label.  If you don't know what an ingredient is or means, Do NOT drink it or purchase it!

Obama administration openly pushing food stamps to illegals; no citizenship required, no income status checked
Skip Stein's insight:

It’s not bad enough that Obama encourages addiction to Government, Food Stamps and other socialistic programs, he is now promoting 'free stuff' to non-Citizens!  We cannot support the Planet, SOMEONE HAS TO WORK!

 

This is worse than the predictions by Ayn Rand in Atlas Shrugged.  Her most dire predictions (many/most are unfortunately coming true) never considered that we would try to Support other nations population.

 

This is truly insane.  WHERE does this egomaniacal idiot think that money and earnings come from? Since he never had a JOB, someone better tell him!  OH WAIT!  WE HAVE! He is just ignoring us and proceeding on his agenda to destroy America from the inside out.

Cutting Iran off the world wide web

Cutting Iran off the world wide web | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
BBC Persian's Behrang Tajdin asks whether increased speed will be enough to compensate Iranians for the possibility of being cut off from the world wide web.
Skip Stein's insight:

Hmmm sounds pretty familiar as similar things are afoot right here in the USA!  CISPA, NDAA and the rest of restrictive legislation is trying to get pushed through Congress.  At least Iran's people seem to realize that the Internet is the last, best way to obtain untainted news and Freedom of Information flow.

Americans better wake the hell up or we could face Government restrictions on the Internet and could even face a shut down or blackout.  The Feds are already monitoring damn near everything we say online, on our cell phones and cameras everywhere.  They are gradually gaining more and more control (starts with observation, recording and 'registration), as they tighten the controls over society in the name of 'protection'.

Protection my ass, they are afraid of the TRUTH.  So get out there, get active, DEFEND your Constitutional Rights before we succumb to the controls that Big Central Authorities ALWAYS want to impose.

Read some history!  Check out what Hitler did as he tightened the screws on the German Population, brainwashed the children and confiscated all firearms, restricted travel, etc. etc... "Let Me See Your Papers!" may not be so far off!

Bill on Sales Tax for Internet Purchases Divides Republicans

Bill on Sales Tax for Internet Purchases Divides Republicans | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
Antitax groups seem to be losing their influence, as Republican lawmakers’ constituents support legislation that would require Internet retailers to collect sales taxes.
Skip Stein's insight:

What right does a state have to tax a company with no physical presence in that State? Tax UPS/FedEx/USPS because they deliver? This would cripple the Internet business communities like my small business who is just beginning to sell across the country.

 

For those local businesses who believe that this is 'unfair', they reside in the state and should pay their taxes to support local infrastructure, police/fire etc. If they want to compete, it is simple enough to set up an online store (if you have questions I'll do it for you for a reasonable fee).

 

Why should a company pay taxes for infrastructure of the State where they do not have a presence? They gain no benefit, have no rights or other state protections, unless the states will grant formal residency with no property ownership. That would be an interesting situation. I could be a resident of every state I ever sell to! Guess that means I'm a resident of Portugal, British Columbia, Chicago, etc. etc. All places I have sold products.

 

The State filing requirements are way beyond any small businesses and there are no payment methods available much less filing requirements, forms procedures etc. It would be a nightmare of 'unintended consequences' just like all the other idiotic, poorly thought out bills.

 

Oh, then the states would have to 'audit' every small business in the USA? Each state would have to hire thousands of tax auditors to even begin to figure out the mess this would create! GOOD LUCK with that.

Incredible! NYT pushing toxic cancer drugs for healthy women who have no cancer
Skip Stein's insight:

More abominable pharmaceutical practices approved by the FDA?  Why in HELL would anyone want to take potential life threatening DRUGS to prevent something that might not happen?

 

It is MUCH more effective (cost and life) to just eat healthy; One HELL of a lot cheaper too.  Drug companies have long ceased trying to CURE anything; they just want to ‘Treat You To DEATH’.  Pay close attention to the SIDE EFFECTS and disclaimers (fast talking adverts).

 

There ARE Healthier ways to prevent cancer, it is ALL about NUTRITION.  Stop killing yourself with soda, fast food, processed foods and EAT WHOLE FOODS.  It is cheaper, and you WILL feel better, live longer and have fewer (if any) lifestyle ailments (cancer, heart disease, diabetes 2, etc.).  THIS is the best way to PREVENT disease, BOOST your Immune/Healing Systems.

Skip Stein's insight:

As criminals get more violent, you can't afford to wait for the cops.  The Liberals want to punish the GOOD GUYS by depriving this man and others of their only means of self defense (at least until the cops do arrive).
