(C4L) – More Blank Checks to the Military Industrial Complex – Ron Paul

Congress, with its insatiable appetite for spending, is set to pass yet another “supplemental” appropriations bill in the next two weeks. So-called supplemental bills allow Congress to spend beyond even the 13 annual appropriations bills that fund the federal government. These are akin to a family that consistently outspends its budget, and therefore needs to use a credit card to make it through the end of the month. Read More Here

BP Gulf catastrophe typifies corporate behavior in America – Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) – The Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe, now in its 35th day, has struck land, coating tourist beaches, marshes and shorelines with a greasy black filth that metaphorically represents the corporate greed that now dominates the U.S. economy. We are all awash in the dark slime of corporations gone bad, and now we’re paying the price for allowing these companies to dominate our media, our government and our entire economy.

You might think government regulators could have prevented all this, but that’s hardly the case. This disaster isn’t merely about a government regulation failure; it’s about what happens when you let corporations rule Washington. Continue reading

Can IBM car technology pose threat to gun rights?

(Examiner) – IBM has hacked into a car. Now the multinational technology giant has applied for a patent to “manag[e] engines in response to a traffic signal.”

From news.com.au:

If you’re crawling through traffic in 2025 and approach a traffic light, IBM hopes it will be able to take control of your car.

And according to the patent, you won’t be able to go again until it lets you.

…With a laptop and customised software called CarShark, the researchers disabled the brakes of a regular family car and switched its engine off – while it was moving.

Naturally, there’s “good” reason given for doing this. In a word: “safety.”

It seems to be the standard excuse for giving up all kinds of freedom to government control these days. Continue reading
