Independence Day or Independence Dead?

Kagan and Sharia Law in America
American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ)
As Dean of Harvard Law School, Elena Kagan Supports Sharia Law in America, but bans United States military recruiters from Harvard campus. Click here for an analysis of some of Kagan's work and record, posted on the ACLJ site, prepared June 17, 2010.

Sharia: Alive, Thriving and PROTECTED in America
Sharia in Dearborn: Police stop Christians from handing out material outside Arab Festival. From Jihad Watch. But we cannot call it Radical Islam, each terrorist attack is now a "Man Caused Disaster."

Drudge headline: The Big Grab.
House and Senate leaders finalize details of sweeping financial overhaul. Wrapped up at 5:39 a.m., the Dodd-Frank bill sets up a potential vote in both houses next week that could send the legislation to Obama by July 4th.

A new consumer protection bureau housed in the Federal Reserve would have independent funding, an independent leader and near-total autonomy to write and enforce rules. The government would have broad new powers to seize and wind down large, failing financial firms and to oversee the $600 trillion derivatives market. In addition, a council of regulators, headed by the Treasury secretary, would monitor the financial landscape for potential systemic risks.

"We've put in the hands of the president a very powerful set of tools for him to reassert American leadership in the world," Frank said.

Amnesty by Executive Order
Yet another way to thwart the Will of the People and usurp the power of the Constitution.

Centrally Planned Economy
A centrally planned economy is one in which the total direction and development of a nation's economy is planned and administered by its government. The antithesis of central planning is capitalism which is characterized by private sector control of production, distribution, and consumption. Capitalism also functions by being responsive to marketplace demands. Central planning, on the other hand, functions
through administrative directives.

Central economic planning as practiced in the Soviet Union and other communist countries required subordination, obedience, and discipline on the part of the individual for the benefit of the state. Choice was limited to the existing supply of goods and services and private decision making in regards to employment, occupation, and selection of workplace was also severely restricted.

Central planning failed for a number of reasons including: inefficient allocation of resources and labor; upward transmission of distorted and self-serving information from agencies low on the hierarchical ladder; set prices unrelated to cost, supply, and demand; and inefficient execution and administration of the various economic plans.

Socialism is a political and economic approach that calls for state-owned businesses and state-controlled distribution of wealth brought about by democratic means. The doctrines of socialism also include demands for major industries, banking, utilities, and natural resources to be nationalized as well as for nationalized social services such as health care.

Police seize 100,000 anti-Vladimir Putin books
Pre-crime initiative coming to Russia. From the Kyiv Post, June 11, 2010. MOSCOW, June 11 (Reuters) - Russia's parliament on Friday voted to boost the powers of the successor to the Soviet KGB, allowing it to summon people it believes are about to commit a crime and threaten jail for those who disobey its orders. Read more at Kyiv Post.

And who determines what constitutes a crime? Is it a crime against the state, against the statists, against the status quo? A questioning of authority? A difference of opinion... It is subjective and open to interpretation and it IS a slippery slope back to communism.

Free speech?
So much happening and so fast. Again, assaulted on all fronts, the Cloward-Piven strategy, the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis; Rahm's edict to never let a good crisis go to waste; the main stream media's participation in the death of freedom of speech and expression.

Working through all these disparate, dependent and despicable headlines lead me to what I thought was an elegant analogy, based on current events and historical precedent. I outlined it to my husband and concluded with the statement that, "But I don't think I can use it." And very, very quickly, with great emphasis, he replied, "You can't."

An innocuous weaving of historical fact. Brought into focus by today's events. Yet I will not use it.

Because of: Sharia, Radical Islam and "Man Caused Disasters". The Big Grab. The DISCLOSE Act. Health Care Reform. TARP. Government Motors. Socialism.

And because of the creeping closeness of the death of our First and Fourth Amendment rights.
