REPEAL THE DAMN THING - DON'T DO YOUR USUAL WIMP OUT! Republicans Flicker On Light Bulb Ban Repeal

You can always expect the rank and file Country Club Republicans to be wimpy. They just love to be lead around by their collective nose by the hard case greenie-cons, commie Democrats. The Socialist Dems can't stand not insinuating themselves into every crevice of your life! This gets a Felix Ungar salute!!

Articles: Republicans Flicker On Light Bulb Ban Repeal
June 20, 2011 By Geoffrey P. Hunt

The Republican House is flinching on passing the simplest and most symbolic piece of legislation this term: repeal of the incandescent light bulb phase out. Amidst great fanfare and promises to restore limited government, the new majority is proving it isn't much different than the old majority.

The incandescent phase out required under the so-called Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 starts with banning regular 100 watt light bulbs on Jan 1, 2012. 75 watters will be banned a year later. 60 watters fade in 2014.

Some of us still cling to a quaint notion that federal legislation ought to pass constitutional muster while fixing a problem serious enough to fix and do so while providing more benefits than the costs to implement. The light bulb ban fails to achieve all three:

1) it is unconstitutional (see my previous screed on this aspect);

2) is a solution without a problem; and

3) bears costs far in excess of any benefits.

The light bulb ban was inspired by environmental and energy conservation zealots spooked by the global warming lobby. And those economic rent-seeking players in the lighting industry who could benefit from legislated self-interest, were happy to join as co-conspirators. Those companies who were less enthused about the light bulb ban found resisting futile, in the end happy enough to delay the effective dates to allow for more orderly close down of factories and job eliminations.

So, what have learned since 2007? For starters, the global warming agenda has collapsed, polluted with data manipulation scandals. And where the data haven't been tainted by hyper-partisans, independent measurements are proving that global warming predictions are as useful as pre-season college football polls.

REPEAL the ATF, it's as rotten as the 'Fast and Furious' and other failed entrapment schemes

ATF acting director may resign over Fast and Furious program - CNN.com
Washington (CNN) -- Kenneth Melson, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, is expected to resign under pressure, perhaps in the next day or two, in the wake of the controversy over Operation Fast and Furious, two senior federal law enforcement sources said Monday.
In the operation, straw buyers were allowed to purchase illegally large numbers of weapons, some of which ended up in the hands of cartels in Mexico.

REPEAL the Dept. of Homeland Security & TSA - “Security Exercise” Covers 3 States, 5000 Miles Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

Why? Power Corrupts!

TSA “Security Exercise” Covers 3 States, 5000 Miles Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!
Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com June 15, 2011

f you’re still living under the delusion that the TSA is just restricted to airports then think again. A joint VIPR “security exercise” involving military personnel has Transportation Security Administration workers covering 5,000 miles and three states, illustrating once again how the TSA is turning into a literal occupying army for domestic repression in America.

The TSA, in alliance with a whole host of federal, state, local agencies as well as military personnel, is currently conducting a massive “security exercise” throughout Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.

“The participating teams are composed of a variety of TSA assets including federal air marshals, canine teams, inspectors and bomb appraisal officers. They will be joined by state and local law enforcement officials to supplement existing resources, provide detection and response capabilities. The exercise will utilize multiple airborne assets, including Blackhawk helicopters and fixed wing aircraft as well as waterborne and surface teams,” reports the Marietta Times.

REPEAL the Department of Education and their SWAT raids like the one in Stockton

The PJ Tatler » Update on Department of Education SWAT raid in Stockton
full short post here:

Update on Department of Education SWAT raid in Stockton

KXTV published another update, with an excellent video, on the Department of Education’s raid on Kenneth Wright’s home in Stockton, California. Neighbors are coming forward to corroborate Wright’s claims.

One witness said: “They all had guns. They dragged him out in his boxer shorts, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him.”

KXTV published the entire search warrant.

Page 4 notes that authorities were looking for evidence related to Financial Aid Fraud, Conspiracy, Theft of Government Funds, False Statement to Government Agency, and Wire Fraud. None of these are violent crimes.

Page 5 shows the judge specifically deleted the line authorizing the search for “Contraband or any other item that is immediately apparent to be evidence of a crime.” Authorities expected to NOT encounter criminal behavior. So why the forced entry with deadly force in play?

It also is chilling to know that if you are accused of lying to the federal government, you can expect an early morning SWAT-like raid, get handcuffed and dragged across the yard in your boxer shorts, and have your children terrorized. Orwell’s 1984 was not a work of fiction, but a how-to manual for bureaucrats.

Wright was not arrested, and authorities admitted they were looking for his estranged wife.

All previous questions remain unanswered.
