Internet Censorship

The FCC has voted 2-1 to repeal the onerous Obama era rules to control the internet.  Under the false claim that the internet needs to be fair and equal for everyone. The charge that ISP (Internet Service Providers) were throttling the speed and bandwidth of internet access in favor of customers that were willing to pay for the faster service.  That was never true.

“FCC Chairman Ajit Pai wants the commission repeal the rules that reclassified internet service providers as if they were utilities. He thinks the open internet rules adopted under former President Barack Obama, a Democrat, were unnecessary and harm jobs and investment.”

Essentially, the Obama regime wanted to take control of the internet and make it a public utility.  In effect making the internet like a service controlled by the government. Similar to water, sewer, and electric services, the internet would be controlled by a government panel where access cost and content would be controlled by the government.

However, the internet is a source of innovation and free market development.  That freedom would have been taken away by the government. An innovator would have to meet certain government regulations in order to meet government regulatory approvals. Thus throwing a road-block into developers to improve, develop new technologies, and provide open access to the internet.

The internet is not an essential public utility. People lives would not be irreparably harmed if they didn’t use the internet. The internet is more of a luxury than an essential public service. Electric, water, sewer are essential public services for obvious reasons of health and quality of life.  However, the internet is luxury.

There are people that live off the grid without internet and telephone services, and they survive just fine. My parents couldn’t make heads or tails of the internet, even though they took computer classes at the community college. I remember my father complaining about popup ads and asking why do they do this on the internet. I said it’s like a newspaper, but with ads that popup to get your attention.

People worry that their internet access and costs would be at the mercy of the ISP provider. The beauty of a free market internet is that you are free to choose your ISP provider.  Just like newspapers, you can switch to another publisher, and just like your internet provider, you can switch to another ISP provider.  If you don’t like Comcast, then you can switch to another provider like either Time-Warner, Verizon or some local provider.

Under a “One-Size-Fits-All” net neutrality government run utility, you don’t get a choice in providers. You get what the government approves. The government isn’t effective in controlling commerce, but the government would try to control internet content and that’s a scary thought.

Because Net Neutrality would be government controlled, it also means the government would control the content on the internet.  The internet would be subject to political influences.  The Alt-Left socialists, a.k.a. democrats, want to censor and restrict access to internet content.  Just like when the “Fairness Doctrine” was passed in 1949 to restrict the content on the radio.  Net Neutrality would restrict Free Speech.  The socialist left in America is pushing hard to restrict your First Amendment, and they are not trying to hide it.

The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses both to present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was — in the Commission’s view — honest, equitable, and balanced.

Thus the name “Net Neutrality”.  The left claims it would make the internet fair and balanced, but in reality it would restrict the content and censor free speech.  The left is good at creating flowery names to impose socialism on Americans.  President Ronald Reagan repealed the Fairness Doctrine in 1987 and that has brought freedom to the radio airwaves. The explosion of Conservative Talk Radio has become very popular.  Just like freedom of the airwaves, freedom of the internet is essential for the proliferation of free expression.

If you don’t like the opinions, then the solution is simple! You change the channel!  Just like newspapers, if you don’t like the content, then you can find another newspaper.  That is the value of a Free Market Capitalist system. The popularity of Conservative Talk Radio has moved to the internet, and the purpose of Net Neutrality is to restrict content as “honest, equitable, and balanced”. Which is socialist code for censorship of free speech.

Here’s an example: Remember “Air America?” Air America was a leftist radio program organized by socialists personalities to counter the popularity of Conservative Talk Radio. It didn’t last very long. Why? Because of the content. It’s wasn’t entertaining. It was mostly hate speech and it quickly turn people off, and the people switched off Air America.  The free market determined the fate of Air America.  If Net Neutrality were enacted, then the government would fund this content to keep it on the air.  Is that a good use of your tax dollars?

I’ve Run Out Of Dreams

CNCfin

All that remains are nightmares.  The promise and hopes for a new year and future seems to get dimmer every year.

Six plus years into Obama’s fundamental transformation of America into a socialist nation, what milestones has Obama achieved?

Social unrest is certainly the largest achievement.   It cannot be denied at this point in time that Obama’s agenda has been to course America’s direction towards socialism.   Obama has been using the same tactics as other communist despots around the world and throughout history.

Class warfare: Obama has been promoting by encouraging “fairness”.  Paying your fair share, but Obama never defines what a fair share is.  Obama’s infamous claim that “you didn’t create your business, someone else did that”, suggesting that entrepreneurship, hard work and profits, are not of your efforts, that the government gave you that.

In the socialist mindset, the world is rife with inequality, and that equality will only happen when government redistributes the acquired wealth of others and gives it to the less fortunate.  Along the way, the government takes a cut of that wealth, and those politicians get extremely wealthy creating laws that funnel other people’s money to them.  It is ultimately stealing from the taxpayers, and destroying opportunity equality.

It’s no wonder why corporations are leaving the United States for other countries.  These “evil” corporations, as the socialists like to paint them, park their profits overseas to prevent greedy socialist politicians from taking it away.  The practice corrupts corporations.  General Electric is a poster child for this corruption.  They know they have to play along with the rules of socialist legislation, even get involved in socialist programs just to survive.  GE is on Obama’s jobs program, but as they all joked and laughed, their socialist shovel ready jobs never materialized.

That’s Jeffrey Immelt, GE’s CEO, yucking it with Obama when asked about Obama’s failed socialist stimulus package that failed to create jobs.  Instead, jobs went overseas, GE’s CEO, a member of Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness council, is sending jobs overseas and parking GE profits out of reach of taxes.  Granted that GE knows that Obama’s draconian socialist tax policies will hurt GE’s profitability.  So, Obama’s failed policies corrupts large corporations to avoid paying “their fair share!”  Smaller corporation are not so lucky to take their business and run.  They either get eaten up by the larger corporations, or die on the vine.

This blatant abuse of power by the government is not reported by the news media.  Instead, the media, along with the government blame the lack of progress on evil corporations.  Giving rise to socialist groups like the Occupy Wall Street thugs and other socialist groups that want to destroy the capitalist economic system, giving rise to crony capitalism.

Income inequality is the socialist rallying cry for the destruction of our economic system.  What socialist economic system that has ever worked?  Those socialist economic systems like to brag, and pretend, they have a robust economy, but what they lack is innovation and entrepreneurship.  Workers rights are protected more so than the health of corporation.  Not that basic workers rights should be ignored, but rather a balance between employer and employee with minimal government interference.  This is why we have labor laws like equal protection and equal opportunity, and anti discrimination laws.

The pendulum of labor protection swings in both directions.  In our history, there was a time where unions were needed to allow workers to organize and protect the fair interest of the workers from being exploited by the employer.  Out of those struggles, labor laws protect both the employee and employer.  Right to work laws now protect the workers from unions that have become more socialist leaning with involuntary collection of dues which are used to fund socialist politicians.  Union’s interests are now in preserving their interests and not the workers interests.

Unions have priced themselves out of the market, and in some cases have become so politically corrupt, their purpose no longer helps either the worker or the company, but the union management.  An example is where Volkswagen voted not to join a union, and where Boeing moved part of it’s operation to Right to Work States to remain competitive in their industry.  Given the choice, public school teachers voted with their wallets and left the union in Wisconsin.  The result is children are now getting a better education without the union and government rules dictating the curriculum.

Isn’t it ironic that the OWS loons haven’t made the connection that under Obama’s direction, the FED’s pumping money into the stock market is artificially making the Market seeing historic gains?  It seems the rich are getting rich, and when the market goes through a correction, people’s 401K’s a investments could be hit hard with losses.

The media will point to some modest job growth, but what the media doesn’t tell you is that American business is about finding solutions.  So American business is finding ways around the hurdles the Obama regime has put in place.  While we are still free to innovate and work around choking government regulations, American ingenuity will overcome and prevail.  However, Big Government will still try to get their slice of the American Pie through legal racketeering.   There ought to be a law!

I will never understand what the meaning is behind this memorial.  It just doesn’t make any sense to me.  The expression is angry and militant.  It is not how I remembered Dr. King’s expressions and words.  I grew up during this era, albeit at a young age, but I do remember Dr. King’s “I have a Dream” speech.  I remember Dr. King’s speech at the Berlin wall. When it was broadcasted; I remember watching it on my parents black and white television.  It was as gripping then, as it was watching Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon.  We were taught about the civil rights movement along with American civics in school back then.  I remember when President Kennedy visited the Air Force station where we lived at that time.  Kennedy spoke to the crowds of hundreds back then and he gave an emotional speech about those current events of the day.  What went wrong?

This is a quote attributed to the late Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev:

“We will take America without firing a shot … we will bury you!

“We can’t expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have communism.

“We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within.”

I fear America is still in a deep sleep.  The Obama regime is clearly a socialist leaning, pro-communist government.  I’m tired of people trying to tell me that’s just crazy talk.  Action speaks louder than words and policies are actions.

Barry Barack Hussein Sotoro Obama: whomever is this person?  Isn’t it astonishing that we know more about Hillary Clinton’s letters to radical Saul Alinsky in 1971, than we know about any of Obama’s writings at Harvard as a supposedly Constitutional scholar?   Why is that?  Wait! To ask, could be considered racist.

That’s been the socialist shift now.  The Wall Street protests, the class warfare hype, the income inequality; all being used to simmer a boiling pot of hatred.  With the recent deaths of criminal thugs by police, it sparked the excuse for violent demonstrations.  Fueled by Obama’s communist propaganda of, “you didn’t build that“, and Elizabeth Warren’s “nobody got rich on their own“, chilling words when you look beyond their real meaning.

What these hard-core socialists are saying is that government is responsible for your success.  You had nothing to do with your success, it was all given to you by the taxpayers.  I guess Steve Jobs didn’t invent the Macintosh or the iPhone either.

Infrastructure is apart of civilization, and it has been for centuries.  It exists in various degrees of success depending on what kind of government you have; capitalist, or socialist.  If you compare either communist Cuba, or Venezuela,  to capitalist free markets United States, then there’s no doubt what worked, and what hasn’t worked.  Yet, we are told by fat ass socialist like wealthy Michael Moore that Cuba has a superior healthcare system than the United States.  So now we have Obamacare.  How’s that working for you?

What’s left is civil unrest and racial division.  There are hundreds of crimes committed in the United States, some are caused by bad cops, but most are caused by evil people.  There can be no denying the number of murders by blacks on blacks, but it is virtually ignored by the corrupt leftist media.  A socialist news media that feeds the hate monster to distract away from the true problems.

Ignorance dines off the plate of revenge and hate.  Dessert is the false promise of equality.  Like empty calories it temporarily fills the belly, while starving the soul of opportunity.  Individualism, freedom and self worth, are willingly traded away for the warm embrace of cold, calculating, socialist domination.

The Constitutional Scholar That Never Was

bullshitter

As the New York Post describes it:

“Obama fancies himself a modern-day Prometheus stealing laws from the oppressive Founding Fathers for the benefit of the oppressed.”

What is certain is that Obama is no Constitutional scholar, but a fraud!  So who are these oppressed people anyway?

It’s no wonder how many people were fooled by an even bigger fool.  Perhaps it was the years of academia rewriting of history to portray those that left ancient Europe for better economic opportunities, and religious freedoms, into oppressive slave masters.  Still, after all these hundred of years, you wonder why people from all nations still want to come here to America.  Where are the lines of people wanting to leave America for better opportunities elsewhere?  Where are they going to?  What country?

Call it the Gruber-ization of the uneducated and ignorant oppressed.  I liken it to the Joseph Goebbels-ization where if you tell a lie often enough, eventually people will believe it.  How many lies have slipped from the purple lips of the messiah Obama?  More than I dare to count.  But why do people still believe in Obama and the democrats lies?

By Obummers logic, and the progressive democrats (a.k.a. socialists), using illegal aliens for votes, is nothing more than creating a new definition of economic slavery.  In exchange for legal status, a social security card, and other government benefits, these oppressed illegal immigrants will forever vote democrat.  It is a disgusting way to bribe power from the poor, thus keeping the poor oppressed and without a future for economic opportunity.  It is truly a crime.

It is a crime against those that followed the rules of immigration, only to see their opportunity get pushed back to the end of the line.   The oppressed are the ones that lived across the borders of this country, entered illegally, overstayed their visas, smuggled themselves and their children; all for the hopes of a better opportunity.

That’s the real joke isn’t it?  For the promise of false opportunity, illegals give up their rights to liberty.

Their future is in low paying jobs by unscrupulous employers that would use them as low wage employees.

Then there’s the purple lipped liar Obama, demanding employers to give America a raise.  

Inviting another wave of illegal immigrants that will accept low paying jobs, for the chance of opportunity.  What opportunity is there in a economy of progressive slavery?  What freedom is there in overregulations and lack of liberties?

Meanwhile, the socialists (a.k.a. progressive democrats), will be campaigning on social justice, income inequality and class warfare.  They will produce a Elysium narrative that opportunity is being repressed by people who worked hard and built their success off of others.  When in reality, the democrats repress economic opportunity to gain power by stealing it through excessive taxation and over regulations!   Economic opportunity doesn’t happen with wealth redistribution, it only prohibits economic opportunity.  That’s not Constitutional policies!

The lazy corrupt news media will blame conservatives for the bad economy progressive democrats created.  Tom Brokaw, with his Sally Jessy Raphael glasses, flaunting his wealth around while slamming those trying to build a culture of economic opportunity.  These are the one percenters that gave birth to the the socialist Occupy Wall Street goons.  These are the crony capitalists that give government contracts to failed government projects for campaign contributions.  These are green energy Solyndra’s that wasted billions of your tax dollars.  Meanwhile, cheap affordable energy is being destroyed because of the hoax of Global Warming.

Progressive socialist democrats will always use the strawman argument to try and frighten people into believing good people are trying to take something away from them.  Its always been their motive to control the people.  This is how the few, the progressives, control the many.

Good people, working class people, average Americans, became part of a force to push back against this corruption.  They protested against government overreach and corruption.  They were demonized by the wealthy media, the ignorant and socialist communists.  They are called the Tea Party.

The Tea Party are employees, employers, entrepreneurs and small business people.  They work at WalMart and they are small business owners.  However, they don’t want their wages confiscated by union thugs only to be used to fund socialist democrats elections.  You have no choice with unions dues.  Unions take your earned money, and you have no choice.  That’s not democracy, that is called communism.  That is not representation, that’s called taxation without representation.

The Tea Party wants the same opportunities for everyone.  The democrats want only government to provide for the few that will only vote for them.  That’s not opportunity, that’s called economic slavery.

The Arizona law designed to protect religious freedoms, is under attack by leftist extremists that hate freedoms.  Leftist only believe in equality, not liberty, there is a huge difference. By taking away religious freedoms, the leftist extremists thinks that will make us more equal. We are all equal, but the leftist activist’s does not allow liberty to thrive with equality. People of conscience are denied liberty on how they to decide to run their businesses. The Government will now decide how you will run your business, under penalty of Intolerance.

No One Is Dictating Who You Can Love!  

Only The Intolerant Leftists Are Saying That!

The NFL?   Really?  The NFL???  How far has leftism encroached onto society?

The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion and freedom of expression, no matter if you don’t like it. Suppose the government forces you to listen to Islamic hatred about gays, Jews and Christians?  Suppose the government forces you to participate in gay marriages, and watch them engage in sexual acts?  Suppose the government forces your children to be taught about the joys of anal and oral sex?  Without learning the consequences of Sexually Transmitted Diseases.  Is that what you want?  You won’t have a choice!  The government will mandate these laws as “Social Justice” and a reconciliation to the past perceived injustices.  Injustices that have been long ago been exposed and reconciled.  However, that’s not enough for the liberal extremists.  They want more of your freedoms.  So much so, they will take your existing freedoms away.  They call it, Progressiveness’!

If someone comes into my business and wants to buy my cakes and flowers, there is no problem!  If someone wants me to participate in baking a cake to Satan, the government will now force me to comply. If I don’t, the government will jail me and put me out of business. So I have to expose my family and my children to immorality, to comply with the law of immoral politicians.  I am not equating homosexuality with either atheism or satanism.  I am just using this as an example of the extremist position being foisted upon the people.  The point is; no one is as intolerant as the leftist extremist that uses absurdity to create laws in an atmosphere of fear.  The Arizona law is trying to protect people from this absurdity.

That’s not what the First Amendment is about. Freedom of conscience, and freedom of speech, is not just a one way street. Freedom of expression is not limited to a select few. Freedom of choice is not to be regulated by the government. COMMON SENSE, used  to be a reasonable way and to make good decisions that benefited everyone. The Constitution is the LAW of the LAND. The Constitution is the Supreme Law. It is fundamentally based on the laws of freedom: The Magna Carta. The Freedom of Natural Law. The Rights of Human Liberty. From liberty and freedom, comes equality. It is the end result we all desire!

If the bakery, and the florist, don’t want to participate in your gay wedding: CHOOSE ANOTHER! MOVE ON!

Taking people to court and suing them only demonstrates your intolerance for others. Enjoy your cake and flowers. When the real forces of intolerance comes for you, you’d better hope we, the ‘tolerant one’s’, still have the faith in God to help you.

Niemöller, said it best: When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.

The Intolerant Godless Leftist are setting the stage, and you are all being played upon it.  Wake up!  Before it’s too late.

Shared Sacrifice – The Rise of Fascism in the Democrat party

New York’s intolerant socialist governor, Andrew “crazy eyes” Cuomo, said there’s no room for Conservatives in the State of New York.  Then fascist Senator Chucky “cheese” Schumer said he wants to sic the IRS on the Tea Party people.

I seem to remember that’s what Adolph Hitler said about the Jews, and what his henchmen Heinrich Müller did to the Jews using the Gestapo.  This is your Democrat Socialist Workers Party.  Obama has unleashed the IRS on Hollywood, and the average American Jack and Jill.   Using the IRS as their own private Gestapo to silence descent.

Affluentius is an interesting specimen, it is liberalism.  If you don’t know, and can’t identify them, read this to learn more!

Obama, and his socialist democrat minions are gearing up to bombard the American people with another lie to distract away from Obama’s asinine Obamacare, Un-Affordable Patient Care Act law.  This time it’s the unfairness of life in the world we live in.  An unfairness that that Barry the Bullshitter will say, “It’s the Right Thing To Do!”

liberalRacism

Income inequality, social inequality, age inequality, race inequality, and gender inequality, also known as gender apartheid, and climate inequality, grocery prices inequality: There will Always Be Inequalities! That’s how life is!  It’s unfair, it will always be unfair.  What’s worse is when someone tries to make it fair.

The topic of the Democrat talking points for the election is going to revolve around their cherished theme of income inequality and something that J.D. has identified as B.I.G. which as he points out means Basic Income Guarantee.  The Democrats want their base to believe that they can provide a guaranteed income for them without them ever having to lift a finger.

Communism is to Socialism is to Progressive is to Democrat.  Mandatory Kindergarten?  State mandated indoctrination!

The liberal rich 1%, get rich off the backs of the taxpayer.  Liberals blame corporations as a distraction away from their corruption.  They employ low information voters to spread their lies.   You’ve seen them, the Occupy Wall Street types that shit on society and freeload off of society.

Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), who is worth millions of dollars according to her congressional financial disclosure statement, and a terrible liberal fashion statement, says Congress needs to tackle income inequality because it “poses an existential threat to our nation and our way of life.”

Yet, she and her democrats fascists get rich off of the taxpayers and corrupt crony corporations that contribute money to their campaigns to stay in power.  The low information voter, doesn’t even question it.  They just believe the liberal hype and misinformation.

Obamacare is this pattern of death.  Sometimes it comes at the barrel of a gun, other times it’s the benevolence of an overreaching government.   Remember when Kathleen Sebelius, United States Secretary of Health and Human Services, denied a little girl’s need for a new set of lungs, saying, “some will die, and some will live”  — The death panels Sarah Palin rightly warned about.

Take for example the story of the Grasshopper and the Ants.

Even more sadistic, Liberals want to abort babies so they can eat the placenta. They say it’s great with fava beans and a nice Chianti.  Liberals call it fine dinning!

Then And Now

ThenAndNow

Remember when Obama proudly claimed he liked the name “Obamacare“?  Gosh how things have changed!

It seems that cannot get away from either the name “Affordable Care and Patient Care Act” or “Obamacare“, because neither is affordable nor is it patient care.

In order to deflect attention away from the disaster that is “Obamacare”, the Senate today lit the Nuclear Option and did away with the filibuster option.  Essentially eliminating a 200 year Senate rule.  It discriminates against the minority.  The way the socialist democrats did it was deceptive and reasoned with lies.

What a difference eight years and a Senate majority makes. Back in 2005, Senate Democrats (including Barack Obama) were in the minority – and dead-set against a Republican plan to allow judicial nominations to proceed to an up-or-down vote based on a simple majority. The so-called nuclear option, warned Obama and others, would have the Founders spinning in their graves and usher in a tyranny of the majority in the world’s greatest deliberative body.

This action by the socialist democrats is just another in a long line of bad policies being shoved down the people’s throat.  They’ve taken the voice of the minority away from millions of people.  But this is a distraction away from the disaster that is Obamacare.  Remember that Obama said it as much, and just like the Bloomberg reasoning that a 32oz soda is bad for you, the government will make your decisions as to what’s healthy, or not.  From Obama’s own words:

They’re going to have to give up paying for things that don’t make them healthier.  And I — speaking as an American, I think that’s the kind of change you want.

Why would we want to pay for things that don’t work, that aren’t making us healthier?  And here’s what I’m confident about:  If doctors and patients have the best information about what works and what doesn’t, then they’re going to want to pay for what works.  If there’s a blue pill and a red pill and the blue pill is half the price of the red pill and works just as well, why not pay half price for the thing that’s going to make you well?

Already, the individual mandate  has forced the cancellation of  over 5 million individual healthcare policies.  If each policy was insuring a family of 4, then we are looking at over 20 million people that are now going to be uninsured.  Some of those people losing their insurance will have preexisting conditions.  Some people receiving cancer treatments may find themselves in insurance limbo.  Putting them at risk of bankruptcy because they have no insurance for the treatments they need.

Obama waived  the employer mandate for a year.  They knew the employer mandate would force insurance companies to cancel over 100 million employer based health insurance policies.  Assuming that each policy could have both spouse and dependents insured, we could be looking at well over 400 million people uninsured in this country.

Obama claims that you can shop for a new plan, with a better deal; however, what people are learning is the affordable care act is not so affordable.  There’s basic economics behind that.  Obamacare is designed as a huge wealth redistribution system where the rich will pay the most for insurance.   Not only that, but the law also burdens young people with higher insurance premiums.  The law assumes they will be healthier and their higher insurance rates will help pay for the elderly and the sick.

It’s the slice of the pie argument that Michelle Obama spoke about:

“The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”

Read more at the Weekly Standard here.

This is what we in the Tea Party has been talking about for over 5 years.  We saw this coming by their very words.  It’s the classic story of robbing Peter to pay Paul.  This is the Robinhood mentality where you take from others, to give to others.

Of course this was tried in the Soviet Union and it failed miserably.   This government doesn’t want to you make your own pies, they want to the only pie maker.  Where ever socialism has been tried, it has always ended badly.

It is all a lie.  The President of the United States of America, lied!  Lied to the American people and Obama is only sorry that he got caught in his lie.  He thought he could “bamboozle” his way through his lie.  Even the doting lapdog media lied for Obama, until it became obvious to the media that they are not immunized from the disease of this fascist regime.

You get the government you voted for.

For Your Own Good We Are Doing This

legalExtortion

It seems the democratic philosophy of reading the bills after they’re passed, lives on in our mis-representative government. But this isn’t over, they’ve already made up their minds to pass this anyway, they just want to get their language straight.

Cesspool and septic tanks owners would be charged a new fee to pay for water quality monitoring, under a bill moving through the state Legislature that’s part of Gov. Neil Abercrombie’s “New Day” plan.

House Bill 903 assesses an unspecified “reasonable” fee on owners of individual wastewater systems that would go into a new water pollution control account to pay for Department of Health staff to monitor discharges and enforce permits and management plans. Individual wastewater systems are defined as cesspools, septic tanks, aerobic treatment units and any collection systems not connected to a sewer.

With no scientific evidence to back up the States claim that septic tanks and cesspools are causing damage to coral reefs, the State has sided with communists environmental groups in punishing those not hooked up to sewer systems.  The state approved the use of cesspools and septic tanks. The county approved the development of large subdivisions with very small lot sizes to have cesspools and septic tanks. The county did not install a public sewer system for large subdivisions.  This is all about revenue generation by a socialist government.

“Individual wastewater systems, such as cesspools and septic systems, pollute the public’s surface waters and groundwater, and pose a threat to public health and safety,” said Health Director Loretta Fuddy in testimony. “Since individual wastewater systems are not connected to a sewer system, owners of individual wastewater systems do not pay the substantial fees charged to those who are served by sewers that treat and mitigate wastewater pollution.”

This is just another wealth redistribution scheme by socialist politicians to generate new income for the State.  It would be virtually impossible to install sewer systems for every lot owner on an island that is primarily made up of volcanic rock.  We don’t even have public water systems; we have rain water catchment systems.  Will the State start to charge catchment owners with a rain fee?

Not that there are subdivisions that have cesspools that are along oceanfront property that could be contributing to a pollution problem.  Hotels and resort areas that are along oceanfront locations are already required to use either septic or sewer systems. That homeowner lots should be address separately.   Other lot owners, like me, are 5 miles away from the ocean and at a 500ft elevation; my cesspool is hardly draining either into the ocean, or into the ground water.  The Hawaiian Islands are made up of volcanic rock, which is very porous.  Farms use pesticides and fertilizers, is the State going to add an agriculture tax to farmers?  Food is already expensive here on these Islands.  So I wouldn’t trust the State with its current socialist government from trying to invent an environmental crisis just to add another tax to property owners.

Hawai’i council members have adopted the Mayor Bloomberg approach, “we’re doing this for your own good”.  Just like the plastic bag ban that was rammed down the people’s throat by Hawai’i council idiots Pete Hoffman and Brenda Ford, this is a done deal. Your only hope to stop this abuse of government is to demonstrate like what was done on the PLDC fiasco, and vote these clowns out of office.

No sooner than they proposed this idiotic law, they flushed it.  After Hawai’i Island residents raised a stink about it.  But what’s worse is that some didn’t even read the bill:

State Sen. Gil Kahele, D-Hilo, who had originally voted for the bill, said he asked committee leadership to reconsider after he learned there was more to the bill than first thought. He said he received a couple of emails about the bill, and he also talked to Kenoi.

“I took a closer look at the bill. The part about cesspools and septic tanks was kind of buried in the bill,” Kahele said. “Bills come across our desk quickly and sometimes we miss things.”

Really?!?  You miss things?!? Apparently Ol’Gil isn’t up for the job!  What the hell are we paying you for if you’re not up to doing your job?  As I mentioned, the environmentalist haven’t given this up.

Sen. Russell Ruderman, D-Puna, said he also received emails. An environmentalist, Ruderman had voted for the bill, and he said he still thinks it’s a good idea “in my heart.”

“Ninety-nine percent of the emails I received were in opposition. It would have been a dilemma for me, but I would have had to vote with my constituents,” Ruderman said. “I hope it comes back up next year in a way that soothes people’s fears.”

That statement should tell you everything you need to know.  They are going to bring this back up, hide it in some new law, and then feign ignorance.  This is the way of democrats; they are all socialists, communists and crooks.  All they want is to squeeze more money from the people.  Then they’ll all give themselves a huge raise with all that money they robbed from the people.

The bill’s author, Gov. Neil “Crusty the Clown” Abercrombie, was a part of his “New Day” plan.  More like New Nightmare, New Taxes, plan.  All Hawaii Island House members voted for the bill before it was sent to the Senate. In addition to Ruderman and Kahele, Sen. Josh Green, D-Kona, voted in favor of the bill in committees.  These idiots are only looking out for themselves at our expense.

C.S. Lewis said it best; these people are moral busybodies whose plan is to inflict more pain and suffering on the tax payers just so they can sleep at night knowing they saved the environment.  That haven’t saved anything, but they are just dreaming up new ways to rob people of their hard earned money.  Now they are making an unsubstantiated claim that cesspools and septic tanks are harming the coral reefs.  Where is the proof?  There is none!  They made it up to generate a new tax increase!

So desperate these corrupt politicians are that they will come up with another plan to try and steal your money.  In today’s Tribune Herald newspaper, there is a story about the county using aerial photos to see if people are building unpermitted structures on their property.  In effect, spying on the residents!  You are already guilty of doing something wrong in the eyes of the government!

This liberal logic is the same thinking that Barry the Bullshitter has been encouraging.  DHS already considers military veterans, Catholics, Christians, and anyone else they deem a threat to their regime.  This Cass Sunstein approach of nudging, more like shoving, the people into corrals by making life a little more difficult, just so the government can get its way.  If the government doesn’t like something, then the government starts taking away liberties.  The government does this to cause pain to the people.  They call it social engineering and it is expensive!

This is the logic of the left.  They mistrust everyone, and therefore they will look for new ways to steal your money.
