HOPE OR NOPE: The War on Debt, err, Drugs!

"In questioning during Congressional hearings related to her nomination, Napolitano spoke in favor of the militarization of the Mexican border, saying that border fences should be used to separate urban areas from Mexico, but that higher technology should be used in the more remote expanses of the border area. She did not oppose the “Real ID program,” which would create an internal passport system in the US, saying only that the financial burden it will impose on states needs to be lessened."
Who’s Who in the Obama Cabinet,  by Peter Phillips  for The Daily Censored

We, the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union need to get out of the foreign relations business for just a minute to mind the store internally.   We just managed to extract the thumbscrews and the sensory deprivation equipment off of  people living at Guantanamo Bay.   If we look again, we see The Real ID program is an embarrassment to U.S. identity.   It says we can't manage ourselves without a digital chaperone.  

The chaperone may make a lot of money in the public-private partnership. However, when the whole of the US economy is having a tough time squeezing nickles out of the Fed .... it's obvious; we have a long way to go.

My intuitive guess with the blowups in Juarez, aptly timed for new presidential accompli, has as much to do with economic hardship as it does with our last president's confusing blitz of legislation that goes against the Republican base's demands for small government and our needs for fiscal conservatism NOW more than ever. 


As of today, El Paso Texas is not in a state of emergency even if Juarez, Mexico is. 
Can we keep it that way?

What else are the chemtrails skywriting out other than DIRECTIVE 51 and CONTINUITY OF GOVERNMENT?  The Department of Homeland Security cannot "take it to the next level" without a national federal emergency.  In times of federal emergency, NPSD 20 overrides whatever constitutional rights you are under the impression you possess.   

Whatever you do - don't believe the hype.  Agitprop in the form of CNN's Lou Dobbs has been setting up the staging for a faux flag attack strategy for over 10 months.  The violence is real.  It is just really contrived.  I do not trust that  FEMA prison camps are collecting dust in the deserts at a collective loss to provisos.  

Prisoners have little to no rights in this country. Most Americans do what they can to avoid imprisonment.   However, if you are running a drug cartel, like Manuel Noriega, you can be imprisioned in America.  From there you can put together car stereos, do data entry,  field collection calls from creditors, process purchase orders for China, assemble electronic motherboards  etc. etc.  Whatever it takes to pay back your "debt to society". WE NEED FREE LABOR!!  And we will get it one way or another. This country was built on the sweat of rich delusional men and their dehumanizing entitlements. I will say it now, before it becomes the next eventuality; and for the sake of human dignity, so that it won't.

The trouble is, 10 trillion is a lot of debt and Americans aren't good for it.  So here is the #1 question to answer the electric company before they shut you am I going to pay for this? 

My hope, my real hope, is that we can live without debt.  To live without debt is to get a whole other economic way of life altogether.  This is apart from the intricately incestuous International Monetary Fund and World Banking System.  It comes on the terms of the community.  A gold standard perhaps.  Maybe  it means reevaluating the monetary systems in terms of community currencies - sustainable by green economic growth, urban rooftop farmers who can provide surplusses to neighboring counties with smaller ways and means.  

However, we come by it, it might be time to give up the ghost on America's plan for internment in  the states to get our needs met.   That was never a good idea.  We can do different and better and we should.

To withhold certain highway funds if a State does not comply with certain requirements in issuing a driver's license or identification card, and for other purposes.
BTC Exclusive

In my work approaching State legislators, some of them are cowing down due to threats of losing federal funding for their Highways by hitching them to Real ID regulatory conditions (Yes, the exact ones you hate). Otherwise this is still a voluntary unfunded mandate; the same as it was when it was passed on May 11th, 2005. There is a federal bill out there, HR 140, very similar to the one which died last session without even entering committee, that dearly craves the public-private bankrolling from your identity traffic.  I assure you, that is what is driving it.

I find it highly ironic that 4 Republicans from the destitute state of California stepped up to try to move this forward. California is suffering immensely due to lack of State funds. Cali also had a garden variety of pan-partisan effort to drown HB 60, CA’s Real ID bill, when it came up for air last session -R.I.P.

So I take delicious glee in naming names of the federal traitors trying to bully a broke state into a place of reckless endangerment. The technologies are neither secure or affordable. Many needs go ahead of Real ID compliant licenses. Especially when most states have insituted secure license measures before the passage of the Real ID Act.


Rep. Elton Gallegly [R-CA]introduced
Cosponsors [as of 2009-01-14]
Rep. Roscoe Bartlett [R-MD]
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher [R-CA]
Rep. Brian Bilbray [R-CA]
Rep. John Campbell [R-CA]

I think we can live without our nationalized ID with surveillance capacity. However, they are going to try to starve states into making it happen.

There are a couple of ways to tell them your State will not suffer from this coercion:

1)Contact your State’s federal legislators and tell them as a constituent that you cannot afford the comprehensive damages to your identity in this time of economic crisis and that you feel secure license technologies are available without volunteering for the Real ID license regulations. Ask them to oppose HB140.

2) Contact & fiscally support grassroots lobbies who understand what is happening, and will send someone to fight for you in Washington.

Wherever you are in the political strata there are those who will support your position. Here are a few who are working to curb Federal coercion on Real ID:

Center for Democracy & Technology
The Electronic Frontier Foundation
The American Civil Liberties Union
The Bill of Rights Defense Committee
The Stop Real ID Coalition
