Anything but transparent

While we muddle through the sand storm of NSA spying on you, perpetrated by what was supposed to be the most transparent administration ever, now we find this.

The EPA has been gathering information on farmers and sharing it with left-wing groups.

Fox reports a bi-partisan group of 24 senators has sent a letter to the EPA, demanding that the agency explain why it leaked the names and personal information of more than 80,000 farmers and ranchers to left-wing organizations.

The EPA later said it made a mistake by releasing the information

Really, like the rest of the IRS mistakes?

It gets better.

The EPA then asked the left-wing groups to return the information that was mistakenly released.

Here's another one you'll like, the Obama administration sneaked in a carbon tax the last day of May and didn't tell anyone.

Here is a quote:

"As we learn that climate damage is worse and worse, there is no direction they could go but up," Laurie Johnson, chief economist for climate at the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Bloomberg reports even the president supporters questioned the way the administration slipped this in without any public comment.

They're just trying to help up.

One economist said to do this without ant outside participation is bizarre.

No, it's not.

They're elitist and they know better.

They think they don't account to you and me and they'll do what they darn well want to.

The last month is evidence of that.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Here is our transparent Texas Government. "Perry’s veto pen strikes Public Integrity Unit and ethics “sunset” bill"
Gov. Rick Perry unleashed his veto pen Friday — just days before a Sunday deadline — scrubbing a total of 27 bills, including money for a special division that investigates public malfeasance and an ethics proposal with new transparency reforms.

Sure, but he's against the gays. That makes everything hunky-dory with the Tea Party types. If he's a Republican smack talking gays and banning abortion, he can do whatever else he wants. That's all they really care about.

dictatorial movement: any movement, ideology, or attitude that favors dictatorial government, centralized control of private enterprise, repression of all opposition, and extreme nationalism.

Does this sound like any beaurocracy you know? George Orwell wrote 1984 in 1948. He wrote about what he saw happening then. We are living in a milder version of this Orwellian state. We gain control through the party caucus, or revolution. Take your pick.

I used to sit in history class and wonder why the Jews didn't move away from Germany when Hitler made them the enemy of the fascist state. Now that the jackboot is on the other foot, I wonder what keeps me here.

I had not put this together before as to why the department of Homeland Security needed all these bullets and armored vehicles. It is no to stop the black protesters, it is to make sure the white people cannot stop them from rioting. If you liberal democrats want to call me a racists, bigot, or a jerk, go ahead and do so. ai don't really care if my comments offend you. They are intended to offend the liberal and blacks who are responsible for the mess in the first place.

People like Jesse jackson, Al Sharpton, The Black Panthers and Barack Obama are running wild without fear of goverment restraints or prosecution by honest citizens. The Travon martin case is a prime example. This case will not be tried on its merits but instead tried in the social media and the press. If Zimmerman is conviced and is not given the death penality, the blacks will riot. If he is aquitted, the blacks will riot. The blacks just hate white and want to riot.

In the words of Ben Franklin," Those who would give up safety for security deserve neither." Another of my favorite quotes is ," Democracy is two wolves and a lamb discussing what to have for dinner. Liberty is a well armed lamb contesting the vote." My fellow patriots, ask yourself if you want this country to go in the direction of Greece and Turkey of the last months? i suggest the 47 percent that support everything Obuma says and does do a little studying on the Roman empire.

A visit to any battlefield or war memorial will emphasize this. We have made a mockary of our veterans who fought war after war to keep our country free. At this moment in time, we have army's fightiing and our troops dying to protect our country which just as in Vietnam, we have people rasing hell at home. Freedom and security are different items and are sometimes strange bedfellows. I for one am not willing to give up my freedom because of some terriorist foreign or domestic.


As you stated, so what else is new. This is just another example of a goverment that needs a thorough cleansing. Our goverment ,(Of the People, By the People, and For The People) has been copied by other countries all over the world. It is obivious to anyone who has studied history that our Repubic form of goverment, has evolved from Republic, to socialist to now bordering on Communistic principles. Freedom never has been free or easy to keep.
