USA: Feeding The Homeless Is BANNED


Is it 1st April already?

Article from: http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/feeding-the-homeless-banned-in-major-cities-all-over-america

What would you do if you came across someone on the street that had not had anything to eat for several days?  Would you give that person some food?  Well, the next time you get that impulse you might want to check if it is still legal to feed the homeless where you live.  Sadly, feeding the homeless has been banned in major cities all over America.  Other cities that have not banned it outright have put so many requirements on those that want to feed the homeless (acquiring expensive permits, taking food preparation courses, etc.) that feeding the homeless has become “out of reach” for most average people.  Some cities are doing these things because they are concerned about the “health risks” of the food being distributed by ordinary “do-gooders”.  Other cities are passing these laws because they do not want homeless people congregating in city centers where they know that they will be fed.  But at a time when poverty and government dependence are soaring to unprecedented levels, is it really a good idea to ban people from helping those that are hurting?

This is just another example that shows that our country is being taken over by control freaks.  There seems to be this idea out there that it is the job of the government to take care of everyone and that nobody else should even try.

But do we really want to have a nation where you have to get the permission of the government before you do good to your fellow man?

It isn’t as if the government has “rescued” these homeless people.  Homeless shelters all over the nation are turning people away each night because they have no more room.  There are many homeless people that are lucky just to make it through each night alive during the winter.

Sometimes a well-timed sandwich or a cup of warm soup can make a world of difference for a homeless person.  But many U.S. cities have decided that feeding the homeless is such a threat that they had better devote law enforcement resources to making sure that it doesn’t happen.

This is so twisted.  In America today, you need a “permit” to do almost anything.  We are supposed to be a land of liberty and freedom, but these days government bureaucrats have turned our rights into “privileges” that they can revoke at any time. …

The bureaucrats are officially out of control.

In America today, it seems like almost everything is illegal.

One church down in Louisiana was recently ordered to stop giving out water because it did not have a government permit.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I sure am going to give a cup of cold water to someone if they need it whether I have a permit or not.

It is as if common sense has totally gone out the window in this nation.

Over in New Hampshire, a woman is being sued for planting flowers in her own front yard.

This is the kind of thing that makes me glad that I have moved to a much more rural location.  People in the country tend to be much more relaxed.

Sadly, those that love to micro-manage others continue to get the upper hand in America.  Back in January, 40,000 new laws went into effect all over America.  The politicians continue to hit us with wave after wave of regulations and laws with no end in sight.

All of this is making America a very unpleasant place in which to live.

Don’t give to charities – oops, you already have.


Wise words from Old Holborn at: http://www.blottr.com/contributor/old-holborn/charity-always-begins-home

“… Once upon a time, the Ancient Guild of Hemp Weavers decided that fellow members who fell on hard times could come to the very industry they were part of and could expect some charity, whether it be an alms house, help with food and lodging, education for the children or loans to get back on your feet. Hundreds of thousands of similar charities existed to make sure that decent people had a safety net or could be rescued at sea by people willing to risk their lives for no other pleasure than for saving the lives of their fellow man.

That was then, this is now. The State got involved and monopolised “charity”.

… the money to support the favoured causes of Politicians was now being extracted at source – your wallet. … The State would do it FOR you – to further whatever their agenda might be – and you got the bill.

.. You’d be amazed at how many “charities” the Government chose to patronise with your money because it suited their political agenda. … It’s called the “Third Estate” and is the way a Government can assign a large lump of your cash to somebody, anybody it likes but doesn’t have to run it or be accountable for it. You can’t vote for the board of the charity, or demand how the money is spent, as you could if was a critical public service, it is simply “assigned” and vanishes into the ether.

… Money taken from you and me, by force, leaving us less to give to the charities WE support. …

Charity begins at home. When we decide who we choose to support, instead of a couple of hundred elite Politicians, wined and dined by Lobbyists, we will once again begin to understand that it’s our money, not theirs, to give away as we see fit. You can find a full list of “fake” charities (external Govt departments, funded by YOU) at the very excellent Fake Charities website.

Now get back to work, to pay the taxes to pay Stonewall to tell you on the Tube that you’re a bigot (£350K donation given by Lord Peter Mandelson’s department or er…. Enterprise). Dig deep, suckers, it’s all in the cause of the Government. “

Of course, non Fake Charities still need our help.

 

 

All Came True: Ron Paul’s 2002 Predictions


Ron Paul’s 10 year old predictions have eerily become reality.

Maybe he sees the patterns of goverment policy repeating themselves.

From: http://youtu.be/zGDisyWkIBM

This is Ron Paul’s famous Predictions speech from April 24, 2002. This is the original video compiling recent images and video to give his speech a chilling effect.

“I have no timetable for these predictions, but just in case, keep them around and look at them in 5-10 years. Let’s hope and pray that I’m wrong on all accounts. If so, I will be very pleased.”

 

2012: pay your taxes for 208 days, slave for 366 days


Work for 208 days (57%) each year to pay for wars, government debts, EU, bank bailouts, inefficiencies, back-handers, aid to non-deserving countries, tax write-off by the HMRC, gold-plated pensions schemes,  ludicrous state salaries, etc. and then you really start earning.

27,000 pensioners are expected to die (over and above other deaths) of hypothermia this winter. Children are going hungry. Homelessness on the increasee. Etc. …

Oh, and then pay more tax & duty every time your spend. So, the real figures must be in the +70%.

Feel like a slave yet?
Have you had enough yet?

Welcome to 2012.

Don’t worry though, quanties of X-Factor, the soaps and suchlike will increase – can’t have you having time to think or do anything about it.

From: http://www.taxpayersalliance.com/home/2011/12/taxpayers-work-26-july-pay-cost-government-2012-days-2007.html

Taxpayers will have to work until 26 July to pay for the cost of government in 2012 – three more days than in 2007

As the New Year celebrations begin, the TaxPayers’ Alliance today reveals that the average person must work for 208 days in the coming year to pay for their share of the cost of government spending and regulation.

This note extends the concept of Tax Freedom Day, which is calculated annually by the Adam Smith Institute. The Cost of Government Day measures the burden of government spending and regulation on individuals. The TaxPayers’ Alliance has calculated the date in the calendar year on which the average person has earned enough gross income to pay for their share of the cost of government spending and regulation.

  • The Cost of Government Day in 2012 will be 26 July. When the TPA last calculated this in 2007, it was 23 July.
  • The average person must work for 208 days in the coming year to pay for their share of government spending and regulation combined.
  • Of the total above, the average person must work for 179 days in the coming year to pay for their share of the cost of government spending.
  • The average person will work to pay for government spending in 2012 until 27 June.
  • Of the total above, the average person must work a further 29 days of the year to pay for their share of the cost of government regulation.
  • The average person must work for nearly a month to pay off their share of the cost of government regulation in 2012.

Click here to read the full report

Matthew Elliott, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said:

Taxpayers should be looking forward to toasting in the New Year, instead the enormous cost of Government spending and regulation means they will effectively be working for the Government until the summer. Government spending and expensive regulations are costing more than half of ordinary people’s income and this simply cannot go on. The Government needs to cut spending, get rid of burdensome regulations and cut taxes to get the economy going and leave more taxpayers’ money in their own pockets.

Right to govern ourselves


This letter is has been circulating for a while now. Although I am member of The British Constitution Group, I can’t find the original posting on their website. However, it reads:

” The British Constitution Group. The Annex. Scott Lodge. Scott Road. Plymouth.
0151 601 4694.

IT IS OUR RIGHT TO GOVERN OURSELVES
The People’s Voice
For the attention of: David Cameron, Nick Clegg, Edward Miliband and all Members of Parliament,
We Have Had Enough.
This letter is a warning – from the people. It is not a request that requires an answer, but it does require a response – by way of action on your part that demonstrates that you understand its substance and the seriousness of our intent.
The collective political establishment has betrayed the British people by transferring our national sovereignty to a foreign power without our consent. This is in defiance of our constitution and an act of treason.
You do not need to know how many people we represent today, only how many we might represent tomorrow and you should know that our numbers grow daily. This letter thus serves as your window of opportunity to make amends and give remedy for the crimes committed against us. We will show compassion for those who recant and we will be ruthless with those who do not concede to the wishes of the people.
Ignoring this letter is not an option… if you think it is, then this serves only to demonstrate that your intellect is subservient to your arrogance.  You may feel that you can ignore it because you are too powerful, but to do so is to underestimate the seething resentment that the people feel for the political establishment in general.
I, the undersigned, did not write this letter, but it expresses what I think about the way that we are being misgoverned. You have acted in contempt of the principles of democracy and shown total disregard for our right to govern ourselves. It does not matter who penned the words of this letter, what matters is what it says.
For the past several decades the British people have been treated with extraordinary and total contempt by the collective political establishment. It has not mattered which political party has been in office or ‘power’ as you insist on calling it, nothing ever changes. We are continually subjected to the same global agenda. We have been used and abused like pawns in your game of supremacy in which a dynastic ruling class see themselves as ordained to rule as masters – with impunity, whilst we the people, as virtual slaves, are supposedly destined to obey – without question. You have persistently and consistently undermined our democracy by agreeing to treaties with foreign political elites who have no business in our affairs.
You have rewarded yourself with the trappings of office – high salaries, luxuries denied most of us, privileges, pensions, prestige and benefits that we can only dream of… whilst burdening us with ever-higher taxes, derisory pensions and declining standards of public services. It is we who pay the price for your malfeasance.
The story of Britain over the past several decades that will be told in the history books of tomorrow is the story of betrayal, greed, corruption, nepotism, treason and modern day fascism – the latter of which manifests itself in the global agenda being imposed upon us against our will.
The European Union – a step process towards global governance is now fully exposed. Built on lies and deceit is being hoisted by its own petard – the edifice is crumbling but still the political elite like demented fools, continue to feed on their own delusions. The docile masses, mesmerised by trivia, propaganda, complacency and ignorance have still somehow managed to grasp some basic elements of the truth, alerted almost certainly by the blatant and arrogant refusal of the political elite to tell the truth even when it stands proud in the rubble of political deceit and betrayal.
The political class are discredited at every level. They rant about the benefits of our subjugation to a foreign enterprise, peace, prosperity and democracy where in reality chaos, dictatorship and corruption reign supreme. European economies are on the brink of collapse because of the corrupt banking cartels, there is visible resistance on the streets and people call for lawful rebellion. But less known, there is clandestine resistance behind closed doors. Whilst the majority advocate a peaceful uprising, the extremes will always be in the mix and when passion and anger are fused and those aggrieved can find no remedy… violent resistance is as understandable as the passion for life itself.
The police and militia that you currently rely on to defend yourselves against the people’s retribution… are made up of our own, they are not your people – and when they learn about your betrayal and your intent…. AND THEY WILL – they will turn against you. Their awakening, which you cannot stop, is your Achilles heel. Your greatest fear must be that we will impose upon you the regimes and repression that you had planned for us.
People are meeting in groups across the country, talking across oceans… they are disparate, disorganised and without an effective plan to repel the global agenda… as yet. BUT a leadership is emerging… organisers are co-ordinating and small groups are linking to form larger groups.  The dichotomies of left v right, Christian v Muslim, , black v white, Catholic v Protestant, which have been used to great effect to divide and conquer in the past, will find no favour in this war. The call to arms that will unite us will be ‘the people v the global elite’ – the cry will cascade street to street and find easy passage and universal support – for our common purpose has greater value and strength than yours.
We have a constitution – which you ignore. We have been denied our democratic rights, regardless, we have clearly expressed our wishes, in one opinion poll after another, that we do not want to be governed by a foreign unelected officialdom, but still you disregard us. We are promised a referendum on our future, but then you recant. You speak in support of our views when in opposition, but act to the contrary when we elect you.
You consult with corporate executives, international bankers, non-government organisations, international charities, academia, foreign dignitaries, political elites, think tanks and lobbyist – collectively a tiny minority, who do not represent us. These groups all emanate from the same social strata, with their own agendas to satisfy and all funded by the same cartel. You take note of their every whim, but you care not a jot for what we think or what we want. Your children are given jobs, with big salaries fresh from university and then rapidly climb the corporate ladder as reward by the same corporate bodies who you have favoured with your decisions. Our children must make their own way in an increasingly desperate world.  Your corporatism suppresses our freedoms with deliberate and malicious intent.
You accommodate tyrants, dictators, arms dealers and all manner of dubious characters, with whom you are happy to keep company. You turn a blind eye when the smell of money wafts your nostrils… it suppresses the stink of corruption and evil. Your moral compasses are defunct… your values deplorable and motives despicable. Our soldiers die to service your corporate agenda – their blood is on your hands.
You are educated at the same elite schools and members of the same elite clubs and you allow these influences to override the consideration which should be paramount in service of the people.  You have adopted the “I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine” philosophy… because you have learnt from your predecessors that corruption and deception do indeed pay. The European Union is awash with it and you have determined to get your snout in the same trough. You take comfort from the fact that you control those who have the authority to indict you for your criminality… because they too have fallen prey to the corruption. You have sold off our national resources to your friends, divided communities, deprived villages and towns, undermined, destroyed and bulldozed. You have laid waste where once prosperity was enjoyed. But you have not suffered… you have remained aloof, disengaged, uninvolved – removed from the debris and the misery that you have wreaked upon the rest of us.
We have seen our three billion annual fishing industry handed over to foreign control for nil reward. Our farms no longer feed us, crippled by regulations made to favour foreign farmers. Our ship-building has been dismantled and our merchant fleet whittled to nothing. Our armed forces are under strength and we see foreign troops being trained on our own soil on the pretence that they may be needed to protect us… when the reality is they are being trained to subdue us… to protect you from our vengeance. Our children are victims of social engineering in the schools and declining standards of education. They are being sexualised by explicit exposures before they have the emotional maturity to be able to cope. You are destroying their minds and their childhoods.
You have engineered a police state with legislation that empowers you at our expense and you have been blatant in your contempt for our democratic and constitution rights and our common law, which have been known to us for centuries. You deny us our rights and our freedoms and contemptuously imply that you can provide us with a new Bill of Rights. Would we seriously trust a thief with our wallets? You have corrupted our courts by appointing judges who are contemptuous of our common law and you have bowed to the pressure of foreign elites who have inflicted their inferior system of justice upon us… without our consent. You have not defended our interests… you have conspired merely to enhance your own.
You have dissected our nation and sold off our infrastructure. We buy our own water from foreign corporations who grow rich on the back of our suffering. Pensioners die of cold because they are unable to afford their heating bills visited upon them by foreign corporate greed. You are then rewarded by them with lucrative directorships when you slip quietly from office with your bulging pensions. You remain oblivious, unconcerned… disconnected. We will no longer be ignored as you go about you globalist agenda. We will resist your controlling and petty rules and regulations… we will resist your fines and penalty charges and challenge your corrupt and biased judges, we will defy the over-zealous police, and your oppressive and unlawful taxes.
It is our intention to govern ourselves… we do not seek your permission – this is our right. You have had your opportunity and you have failed. We will take control of our own lives in stages, as and when it suits us. Our numbers will grow as we show by example that prosperity is the natural consequence of honest and fair governance. We will expose you for the parasites you are.
 
This country has a constitution – which you ignore. We have Magna Carta, the declaration and the Bill of Rights… we have trial by jury, habeas corpus, the coronation oath. We have our customs, traditions and common law. We have the right of petition, free speech, and free movement and above all… we have the right to govern ourselves. These are our inalienable rights – they are not privileges granted to us by you or your ilk. They cannot be taken away or extinguished at the whim of political diktat or through corrupt judicial process and certainly not at the behest of foreign undemocratic institutions. You have no authority to dictate… your duty is to serve.
We do not recognise regions imposed upon us by Europeans to affect their control over us – to divide and to conquer us. We are a sovereign nation… a proud people. We have watched our country slowly destroyed… by you – we now see clearly what you have done… your purpose and you betrayal. We will honour our inheritance – the freedoms fought for and secured for us, and we will ensure that we will pass this on to the next generation, to our children and theirs.
You have been sent this letter by a constituent.  On sending a copy to you, they have also registered your name with the co-ordinators. This will remain with us as evidence for your trial… for treason, should it be necessary. It’s your choice
We are many – you are few… and our leaders are emerging.
 
You have been warned.

This isn’t a #@!#X*!# sixth form debate


Thanks to CaptainRanty (http://captainranty.blogspot.com/2011/10/democracy-in-action.html) for this piece from: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2052356/EU-referendum-Tory-Patrick-McLoughlin-accused-bully-boy-bid-kill-vote.html

After having promised us a referendum on the EU membership, Cameron et al are now trying to quash any further debate – either by Parliament or my the electorate.

Being a member of the European Union has been a one-way street for Britain. Contributions from Britain to the EU budget have outstripped the benefits received in every single year  of membership.

In total since 1979, Britain has paid in about €260 billion (£228 billion). It has received back  in benefits just €163 billion (£143 billion). The difference of €97 billion (£85 billion at today’s exchange rate) has been Britain’s subsidy to the European project.

Each nation’s contribution is based mainly on its Gross National Income, a measure of its economic output and earnings from overseas. The budget is spent on a range of projects to do with agriculture, fisheries, social projects and other Brussels subsidies.

Britain’s contribution figure would have been even higher had it not been for Margaret Thatcher’s tough stance in 1984, when she famously negotiated a rebate on the basis  that the vast bulk of EU spending went on agricultural subsidies and Britain received a far lower proportion of this than other nations.

Under the terms of the rebate, Britain’s contributions were cut while other countries which benefited most from agricultural subsidies (mainly France) paid more.

Since 1985 Britain’s rebate has been worth a total of almost €90 billion (£79 billion at today’s exchange rate). Though as our graph shows, Britain’s contributions have still consistently far outstripped the benefits it receives.

The rebate would have been higher in recent years had not Tony Blair given up part of it under pressure from EU leaders. He agreed to cut it by about 20 per cent from 2007 until the next round of budget negotiations in 2013. So far, his concession has cost Britain about £4 billion.

The articles include beauties such as:

“‘bully-boy’  tactics were made against Tory Chief Whip Patrick McLoughlin  yesterday as the Government fought to kill off a Commons bid to win a referendum on the EU”

“Mr McLoughlin was overheard shouting at a rebel MP: ‘This is not the f****** Oxford Union. This is  not some f****** sixth-form debating society. This is the bloody House of Commons. Other threats allegedly included:

  • Banning MPs having extra time off at Christmas.
  • Giving their seat to a rival MP.
  • A four-year veto on becoming  a Minister”
