Is this the end of America? Three items that will make you a believer...the fourth item is supposed to make me a believer.

Item #1 Oklahoma pharmacist sentenced to life in teen’s death

OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma pharmacist convicted of murder in the shooting death of a teenager who tried to rob the south Oklahoma City pharmacy where he worked was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole Monday in spite of his defense attorney and supporters’ pleas that he be set free.  Read the rest here: Boston Herald
The injustice here is:  Why should a productive member of society spend any time in jail for some worthless member of society?  Further, while the District Attorney states, "The rule of law applies. No one is above it." he makes a mockery of the system already mocked by the powers to be...if no one is above the law then why hasn't Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Nancy Pelosi, Hilary Clinton, and the rest of them been sentenced to long jail terms for violating existing laws.  Sometimes the rule of law has to be interpreted with common sense rather than the letter of the law.  Common sense tells us that crooked politicians should go to jail and law abiding pharmacists should be exonerated. ~ Norman E. Hooben

Item #2  I received the following video in an email with this message attached:
This is totally unacceptable!!! What do you think about this? Please watch it, and forward it.  Does this make your blood boil? If not, what will? What if your Congressman came into your house and said you can keep your children, but we are going to take a kidney, one leg, an eye, and half of their teeth from each of your children. They say doing this will limit that childs future ability at having happiness and prosperity, but it will help someone else RIGHT NOW who needs those things more than your child!! What would you say? Would you just stand there and say or do NOTHING? That is essentially what is happening. We are doing NOTHING to stop the harmful things that our government is doing to us.  Giving OUR money to fix up mosques in ANY country is BULL CRAP!! The current "Ruling Class" (I say current because I hope a change is coming soon!) is burying us and our children and grandchildren in a debt system that is impossible to repay. They have also allowed our culture to be diluted and destroyed from within.  I still cannot believe what I just watched!!   What do you think? 
This is further proof of Obama's Muslim leanings (or rather his dedication to the cause of Islam) it also puts into perspective Hilary Clinton's long sought after connections to the Jihadists that Obama hopes (the first half of 'hope and change') will ultimately conquer America (remember her support for Yasser Arafat when she was first lady under Bill Clinton).  Anyone who writes her college thesis that tries to show Saul Alinsky in a positive light is definitely not looking out for American interests...Alinsky was for the overthrow of America and so follows Hilary.  We can beat this thing if we not only throw these people out of office...we must prosecute them!  Prosecute, Prosecute, Prosecute!  On a side note to all of this, someone once asked me what I would do on day one if I were elected to live in the cottage on Pennsylvania answer, "I would immediately arrest four people, Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, Eric Holder, and Nancy Pelosi"... and as Johnny Carson always said, "More to come." ~ Norman E. Hooben

Item #3 (this one is bad...real bad) It’s Time to Inspect D.C.’s Hack Inspectors

(be sure to read 'How Bad Is It?' below)
Yesterday, Jim Epstein of Reason TV and I were arrested at a public meeting of the D.C. Taxicab Commission (DCTC). The meeting was held at the U.S. Park Police headquarters. Somehow, Park Police officers got roped into becoming the DCTC’s armed security and both Epstein and I have been charged by the Park Police with “Unlawful Entry/Remaining” and “Disorderly Conduct.” Our “crime”? Taking pictures or video.
Less than an hour into the public meeting, a hack (taxi) inspector – with “K. Bears #17″ written on his shirt – told me I couldn’t take pictures. He stood in my way to ensure that I didn’t photograph the DCTC commissioners on the dais. I settled on taking a photo of him instead. Not long after, things went haywire.

“I am troubled by actions taken by the [DCTC],” wrote Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells in a strongly worded
letter to Attorney General Irvin Nathan. “While the details are unclear, following a request of DCTC members or staff, two armed Park Police officers entered the auditorium, put a reporter in handcuffs, and removed him from the room. This was reportedly for taking photographs or making a video recording of the proceedings at an open and public meeting.”
As I sat in the front row recording the testimony of Jim Dickson of the American Association of People with Disabilities, two Park Police officers approached me. “You can come with me or you can get locked up,” said one.
“You cannot stop a reporter from [recording]. That’s outrageous,” responded Dickson. Despite the protests of the approximately 200 people in attendance, I was hauled away. Washington Post columnist John Kelly, who was present, wrote, “suddenly, a clot of Park Police officers frogmarched Tucker out of the auditorium.” Epstein caught it all on video, which led to his being placed in the jail cell next to me.
“The folks at the D.C. Taxicab Commission and the U.S. Park Police have got some splainin’ to do [regarding the arrest of] two reporters… during a DCTC meeting for, you know, reporting,” wrote City Paper‘s Alan Suderman. “Is it a public meeting or not?” asked NBC4 reporter Tom Sherwood.
Speaking to Martin Austermuhle of, Johnny Barnes, executive director of the ALCU of the Nation’s Capital, said, “We find the actions of the Taxicab Commission to be kind of strange.”
The DCTC has a history of doing strange things, particularly Interim Chair Dena Reed. At DCTC’s March meeting, then-General Counsel Reed attempted to ban Fox5 photojournalist Jason Smith from recording. “If the cameras don’t leave the room, we’re not going to have the meeting,” said Reed, who was overruled by then-Chair Leon Swain.
As interim chair, with no one above her, Reed has gone even further. A notice posted on the DCTC walls before the May meeting read, “NO TELEVISION CAMERAS. NO VIDEO TAPING. NO AUDIO TAPING. The subject of the hearing was Ms. Reed’s attempted rewrite of Title 31, the regulatory code that governs the taxicab industry.
Drivers, concerned that the proposed changes to Title 31 will put many of them out of business, attempted to submit a petition with more than 900 signatures. Instead of accepting it, the DCTC pushed drivers out, locked the doors, turned the lights off, called the police, and referred to the drivers as “a mob.”
The DCTC is badly in need of reform. And it’s not just the leadership. Taxi drivers describe widespread mistreatment by hack inspectors, who appear to face little to no consequences for their actions.
The answer, though, is not to abolish the DCTC, as some have called for. Instead, the DCTC should be strengthened and brought into compliance with the 1985 Taxicab Commission Establishment Act which calls for three industry representatives to be on the DCTC. Presently, there are none.
If drivers are included in the political process many issues can be solved before they erupt into a public spectacle. Take, for example, drivers’ response to Dickson’s testimony. The Small Business Association of DC Taxicab Drivers, an umbrella organization representing some 4,000 drivers, is setting up a meeting with Dickson to figure out how to deal with the serious problem of drivers not stopping for those with service animals.
Lastly, there’s no way to explain how so many hard-working, decent people can be excluded from the political process – at times targeted by it – without talking about racism and xenophobia. It took two reporters being arrested to draw attention to the DCTC’s misdeeds. But for years, countless drivers have been raising these concerns.
Maybe it’s time we listen.

How bad is it? Have we become a police state? ...lets look at a definition:
The term police state describes a state in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive.  The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement. Political control may be exerted by means of a secret police force force which operates outside the boundaries normally imposed by a constitutional state.
Now I'm pretty sure that we live (or should that be past tense, "had lived") in a constitutional state and the constitution has kept us united and free for a good number of years...that is until the extremists came into power (we could probably start with Woodrow Wilson but it's the modern extremists we're concerned with here...such as Barack Obama).  So did the police in the video operate outside the boundaries of our constitution?  Lets take a look at the first amendment to the constitution that once kept us free:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Insofar as I know Congress has not made any law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble...all elements depicted in the video.  Just what crimes were committed that warranted the police to make an arrest?  None! Zero!
Zilch! Nada!  In keeping with the above definition is this not the government exercising rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic and political life of the population (in this case an individual)?  I should also point out that there was no distinction between the law and the law-less with the police acting as the latter.  Therefor when police take it upon themselves to arbitrarily arrest someone for no reason (That's no reason whatsoever, and not 'no apparent reason'!) we have fulfilled the meaning of the definition...we now have a police state...and that's very bad, really, really bad!
Though some may not agree with my solution to the problem identified in the video I think in this case it is extremely warranted.  The right to survival comes into play here, and certainly one's freedom is an integral part of they say in New Hampshire, "Live free, or die!"  Because the police (stealing a line from Obama) acted stupidly, the members of the audience who protested the arrest by walking out of the meeting would have accomplished much for the cause of freedom to have ganged up on the illegal assailants in uniform, stripped them of their weapons and badges and made an example out of them such that they would not dare violate the constitution again...this is not too harsh a punishment...when our Founding Fathers were fighting for our freedom these police would have been tarred and feathered. 
Meanwhile lets hear what Judge Napalotano has to say.

Item #4  Should I be worried?  Would you be worried?

Almost every blogger that uses any kind of site meter to check the number of visits he or she receives on their website knows they have been visited by many government agencies.  This happens because the government computers are identified by their IP address such as this: 

Domain Name ? (U.S. Government)

IP Address

65.196.107.# (FTS 2001/Dept of labor OAS)


Verizon Business
At one time many bloggers thought that they were being 'watched' or spied upon by such and such government agency only to find out it was some government employee surfing the web while the boss was not watching (the boss was most likely doing the same back in his little cubicle).  But then again, when bloggers write some derogatory stuff that places a politician in questionable circumstances then the guilty politician will click onto the blogger's website to find out what's being said...this happen to me when I wrote a 'nasty' blog about Secretary of State (Massachusetts) Bill can check that out here: TRAITORS...they walk amongst us!     
Well I suppose some bloggers take pride in the number of government agencies and/or politicians that keep watch over their various web sites.  I for one have had almost every government agency known to mankind (I've included some of them in the list below that covers other institutions as well as the government) visiting me from time to time and it didn't concern me none until I had what we call, "an interesting visitor"  The interesting guy turned out to be none other than Barack Obama...go ahead, scroll down, look at the list, you'll find his IP address along with the rest (its highlighted in red).  Some of you know the story of how I was threatened (twice) by Obama's goons and I won't get into that here (but I did keep the phone number of the late night caller...the one I reported to the police).  The whole purpose of this item #4 was to announce another interesting visitor.  Now as I've alluded to before, I'm not in the least concerned about which government agency visits this website except...except maybe this one:

Domain Name
IP Address
198.81.129.# (Central Intelligence Agency)

Now it is my understanding that the CIA cannot spy domestically...their area of expertise is suppose to be overseas.  So what are they doing checking in on little ole Storm'n Norm'n?  Should I be worried?  Would you?

I wonder what would have happened to that teen if he had killed the Pharmacist? Probably a slap on the wrist.

I have been wondering about this nation and am worried about its future.
