In The News

Today's Libertarian Animal Radio Show.

------------------------------------------------

Who oversees the FBI? Who says this is OK?

------------------------------------------------

Former President Jimmy Carter had this to say on the 40th anniversary of War on Drugs.

---------------------------------------------

Liberal Congressman Barney Frank and Libertarian Republican Congressman Ron Paul have introduced legislation to end Federal Marijuana Laws in order to leave it up to the states. Frank just moved up from a complete ZERO in my book. This issue belongs to the states; 16 states have already legalized "medical marijuana". What the hell do we have "states" for if they cannot make this decision?  At wouldn't it be nice to be able to vote with your feet (move to states that see it your way).

Its either Libertarianism or Fascism.

Lots of things that used to be state issues have been federalized over the years.

The states are little more than puppets of the fed. The 17th amendment, along with federal highway funds, and education funds, etc have pretty much made them complete puppets.

Remember the 21 year age restriction that was pushed on the states in order to get federal highway funds? How independent are the states really? Could a similar tactic be used to push an amendment? After all its the states that are supposed to approve or reject a constitutional amendment. But can they do that in their current dependent state?

Anon,

Of course it could. The states have accepted federal welfare, and are now enslaved. It is the same tactic that is used to buy individual support. Addict them to welfare and hang the constant threat to pull the plug. Disgusting.

As far at the FBI rules go, well, there is no freedom under surveillance. The are watching everything. They track what you buy with your credit/debit cards and who you talk to and where you go with your cell phone. No warrant necessary. Do they need anything else?

Greg,

It's not mine. I don't know where I heard it. It is a core truth, though. It is the basis of probable cause. Law enforcement is not supposed to even LOOK without a reason.

Here is an interesting commentary.

There is a nice university just down the road and a pretty good Jr. College too. Crime is low at both yet they both have vastly more cameras than an average prison. It is just ridiculous; we are building a GD police state. Anybody remember hearing about Soviet cameras around red square? They were a bunch of pikers.

Best,
