"Prescription drug abuse is now more common than street drug abuse -- by far! And yet Big Pharma rakes in huge profits from all the patient addictions to their opioids. And by 'opioids', what I mean is narcotics. They are, in fact, one and the same."
"Quasimodo in Number 10, hunched, scowling over his desk, has devised yet another plan to police, to increase surveillance, to indulge his obsession with extending his short-lived control over as many people as possible. Gordon Brown, who now seems to have lost his last tenuous grip on reality, wants the European Union to police the carbon emissions of the whole world. That is the leitmotif of New Labour – and, by extension, all Westminster – government: control, bans, observation, intrusion, diktat.
"Balked of a legal agreement on imaginary manmade global warming at Copenhagen, Quasimodo and Nicolas Sarkozy are working on plans to create a 'European monitoring organisation' to oversee different countries’ actions on carbon emissions. Barack Obama – the leading control freak in the liberal pantheon – has suggested spy satellites could be used."
"'Second, we will focus the restriction on oral communications to target the scenario where concerns about merit-based decision-making are greatest –after competitive grant applications are submitted and before awards are made. Once such applications are on file, the competition should be strictly on the merits. To that end, comments (unless initiated by an agency official) must be in writing and will be posted on the Internet for every American to see.
"'Third, we will continue to require immediate internet disclosure of all other communications with registered lobbyists. If registered lobbyists have conversations or meetings before an application is filed, a form must be completed and posted to each agency’s website documenting the contact.'
"The key passage is the reference to expanding regulation from registered lobbyists to 'anyone else exerting influence on the process. We concluded this was necessary under the unique circumstances of the stimulus program.'
"This is the Camel's nose under the tent, being poked because of special circumstances. Let government restrict political expression - i.e. lobbying of government officials regarding policy - in one small, supposedly specialized area and not long after the specialized area starts expanding. Eventually, all political expression regarding all policy will become subject to government regulation."
Let me repeat: Eventually, all political expression regarding all policy will become subject to government regulation.

This is the caliber of maturity we have in the U.S. Senate who make our laws.
Brother X says: "That is because Obama is perfect. He, like the Blues Brothers, are on a mission from God! Everything he does is right, even when it is wrong!"
"When Obama announced his Afghanistan escalation a week earlier, the liberal antiwar group MoveOn.org urged its members not to protest Obama, (What!) but to call on Congress to support 'a binding military exit strategy and firm benchmarks so we can bring our troops home safely and quickly.'
(What a bunch of pathetic losers. They need to "move on" from their hypocrisy. But this is the organization that rich, white billionaire (someone the Democrats are supposed to hate) George Soros supports. They cannot pee without his permission -- Robert)
"So the president of the United States doubles the number of U.S. troops committed to a war that even some conservatives now considered a disaster, and all MoveOn.org could ask for was 'benchmarks'? That tepid response goes a long way in explaining why the Obama administration wasn’t concerned about an antiwar backlash when it approved the Pentagon’s proposal for a further surge."
A Guide for Aspiring Race Hustlers and Poverty Pimps:
How to be Black for Fun and Profit
by Brother X
If you always wanted to be the kind of Black leader who cares only about your ego, your bank account, and your self-preservation above the needs of the community and want to make a fabulous living from the Black community and White guilt, then this is what you must do:
First of all, you must convince your constituency that all Whites will always do their best to hinder Black progress. There is no such thing as “The American Dream” for Blacks. You must convince them that Whites are always burning the midnight oil, always thinking of new, innovative, and creative ways to oppress your constituency. Always convince your constituency that all Whites in general are devils, unspeakably evil and always will be. Always give them the impression “Whitey’s gonna get you.”
Convince them that mass genocide, except by abortion, is very close around the corner. (Never attack the rich, white abortion industry! They may have the wrong skin color, but their green money is very good looking!) Keep your Black folk scared. Keep your Black folks angry! Encourage them to satisfy their thirst for an elusive “freedom” by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. Do not encourage them to struggle on a high plane of dignity and discipline. Never let them know there is such a thing called “personal responsibility,” which only can be a White man’s concept. Let them wallow in the valley of despair.
Keep your Black folks worked up! And you must show your constituency that you will always be their only friend and voice for them. You must always “romance” them, wine and dine them so to speak. Appeal to their egos. Make them feel superior to all other ethnic communities. Make them feel that the “outside communities” of all ethnic groups will never accept them. You must actually control and isolate your people, rather than really care about them. Do everything to make them feel good, to make them want to be “movin’ on up” just like The Jeffersons. Promise them a “piece of the pie.” Just like Jack Nicholson said to Tom Cruise in A Few Good Men, “You can’t handle the truth!” your constituency cannot handle the truth. The truth is they must stay on the “plantation.” You want them to be dependent on you. You want to be popular enough so that your word is law. People will do what you tell them to do on blind faith. People will vote the way you tell them to vote, sight unseen because you are their leader.
Let people believe that a victory for one Black is a victory for all Blacks, like when boxer Joe Lewis beat that white German years ago. It will make them feel good, but it may not necessarily change their own personal situation or their community. But change is not your concern. Making them feel good is your concern.
Remember, poverty is your best friend as long as it does not come to stay at your house. Just keep on demanding that the government do what it is not designed to do. Demand that the government end poverty NOW (ain’t gonna happen). If the masses of people found a way to get out of poverty, you would not be needed anymore. Your funding sources would dry up. You would be in the unfortunate position of having to find a real job. You are in this game for three things only – Reputation, Power, and Money.
Constantly make big threats to the media about “hell breaking loose” and brothers and sisters “finding freedom at home.” Make big demands and say if those demands are not met by a certain deadline, there will be “serious consequences.” Burn, baby burn! Two wrongs don’t make a right but it damn sure makes it even. Accuse the government of constantly attacking your constituency and keeping them in poverty. And if your feelings get hurt, cry “Racism!” Blame the White man at every opportunity. Also get on Black radio talk shows and blame every problem there is in the Black community on racism and the Republicans and say you are trying to get Black folks to wake up.
You should always demand that the federal, state, county, and city governments take the responsibility of solving all the problems of the Black community. Your constituency must believe that it is the government’s responsibility to provide jobs. They must believe it is the government’s responsibility to provide health care. They must believe it is the government’s responsibility to reduce crime. They must believe it is the government’s responsibility to provide housing. They must believe it is the government’s responsibility to keep on spending money on schools since lack of money is absolutely the only reason why Black children are not getting a good education. They must believe it is the government’s responsibility to end poverty. They must believe the solution to the ills of the Black community is “electing the right people.” If a young Black man from your constituency says that welfare is something “the White man owes me,” you have done your job well. Congratulations!
If you are in a city with a Black Mayor, a Black Congressman, a Black city manager, a Black superintendent of schools, a Black county treasurer, a Black chief of police, a Black fire chief, Blacks on the county Board of Supervisors, Blacks on the school board, etc., if there are any problems in those governments, find any White man somewhere to blame. Remember, our Black elected officials are NEVER to be held accountable, even if caught with $90,000 in their Louisiana home freezer. (The White man and slavery made him freeze his money.) They are innocent even if proven guilty.
Celebrate “diversity,” but never, ever tolerate diversity of thought or opinion. Only your opinion matters in the community. And yours is the only correct view.
On the subject of the media, whenever you are interviewed, remember, you are representing the authentic Black point of view. Say something controversial and when you are later challenged on it, say that your comments were taken out of context. Even better, blame the White establishment of trying to distort your message. Accuse them of always trying to get you and to take you down. You must be the “consummate victim.”
Call any White person who criticizes you or your Black friends a Nazi, Klan member, Aryan Nations member, cracker, Dixiecrat, honky conservative, or just a plain old White supremacist and do your best to keep them feeling guilty. Call all Black people who criticizes you house negroes, sellouts, Uncle Toms, whitewashes, sugarcanes, Oreo ™ cookies, coconuts, Uncle Toms, Trojan Horses, fades, bug-eyes, Judases, race traitors, handkerchief-head Negroes, Uncle Toms, self-haters, Uncle Toms, boot-lickers, wannabes, parasites, self-loathers, Uncle Toms, Sambos, Farinas, Stymies, Buckwheats, hyenas, wombats, weasels, Uncle Toms, brown pelicans, servants of the right-wing, Uncle Toms, or anything else you can think of that is a good insult. For example, if one has the name Ezola, call her “Ebola” or if she is named Condolezza, call her “Condemnesia.” Publicly accuse the feet-shuffling, sellout, disrespectful, self-hating Uncle Tom and Aunt Jemima, Stepin Fetchit sycophant, extremist, persona-non-grata Blacks who call themselves “conservatives” and who oppose you as being self-serving house-negro whores of the White establishment. If they call you on any facts you cannot dispute, ask them publicly “What are the White folks paying you to say all that?” to embarrass them. You completely must tarnish their reputations before any of your constituency takes what they say seriously. Some of them just may listen to them. Accuse them of having Messianic complexes and delusions of grandeur while saying “Yassa Massah! We’s good black folks. We sho’ gonna do whate’r yall say!” to their White puppet masters. Tell your constituency these sellouts are the “enemy within,” and they must be exposed and opposed vigorously. It is your duty to isolate them, And your constituency must never, ever in life accept them. You must always have people question their Blackness. Remember, dissent within the Black community you must never tolerate. Criticism from the White community you must never tolerate. Your constituency must know that to deviate from your standard doctrines is to “work against the Black race” and is contributing to their genocide. Freedom of thought must never be encouraged. You must make other Blacks afraid to openly express feelings other than your standard doctrine. Make them afraid to be called Uncle Toms. And you must never let anyone question your commitment to your constituency. You must be recognized as the Keeper of the Blackness.
When you talk to the media, exaggerate instances of racism. For example, if there was Black voter suppression in one election, for the next election, plan on mentioning unconfirmed reports of voter suppression in several states. Who will check you out? It makes for a good entertaining sound byte. The media will not hold you responsible for hearsay, and your constituency will love you for your “honest” vigilance. Besides those comments maybe forgotten. If not, at least you planted the seeds of suspicion.
If there have been overt cases of racism and genocide that does not serve your purpose in any way, like gun control laws that disarmed Blacks and not Whites over 100 years ago, or the Negro Project (endorsed by Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger) that sought to sterilize Black men in the south in the 30’s, Black slavery in Africa (which has been going on for 800 years), or the massacre of 800,000 Blacks by Blacks in Rwanda, ignore them. You are not interested in Black-on-Black genocide at all. Only White-on-Black genocide is a tragedy worthy of recognition. Blacks killing other Blacks is NEVER as bad as Whites killing Blacks. You need to high profile cases of White racism and genocide that will boost your reputation, power, and money. If anyone tries to make any useless cases of genocide public, tell them to back off. It is only working against your cause, which is reputation, power, and money.
I told you I'm not a fan of Bush, but Obama only follows in his footsteps.
Go to "America Under Barack Obama" http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig8/whitehead6.1.1.html
JW: Do you consider Obama to be worse than George W. Bush?
NH: Oh, much worse. Bush essentially came in with very little qualifications for presidency, not only in terms of his background but he lacked a certain amount of curiosity, and he depended entirely too much on people like Rumsfeld, Cheney and others. Bush was led astray and we were led astray. However, I never thought that Bush himself was, in any sense, "evil." I am hesitant to say this about Obama. Obama is a bad man in terms of the Constitution. The irony is that Obama was a law professor at the University of Chicago. He would, most of all, know that what he is doing weakens the Constitution.
In fact, we have never had more invasions of privacy than we have now. The Fourth Amendment is on life support and the chief agent of that is the National Security Agency. The NSA has the capacity to keep track of everything we do on the phone and on the internet. Obama has done nothing about that. In fact, he has perpetuated it. He has absolutely no judicial supervision of all of this. So all in all, Obama is a disaster.
JW: Obama is not reversing the Bush policies as he promised. But even in light of this, many on the Left are very, very quiet about Obama. Why is that?
NH: I am an atheist, although I very much admire and have been influenced by many traditionally religious people. I say this because the Left has taken what passes for their principles as an absolute religion. They don't think anymore. They just react. When they have somebody like Obama whom they put into office, they believed in the religious sense and, of course, that is a large part of the reason for their silence on these issues. They are very hesitant to criticize Obama, but that is beginning to change. Even on the cable network MSNBC, some of the strongest proponents of Obama are now beginning to question, if I may use their words, their "deity."
That is called "chump change."
