News on the March
Be it fallout from Secret Service or the revelations of George Zimmerman wounds the night of Trayvon Martin's shooting death, the distractions keep coming, but we'll throw out a slew of stories from the past week that need some desperate attention. Be it the funding of Syrian Rebels in a time of the UN brokered 'cease fire,' the plan for special ops in Afghanistan, or that the US Government is green-lighting the publication of a controversial bird flu studies or how there's a plan that you could be kept from leaving the country if you don't pay your taxes--we'll blitz through these stories and more to start off the show.
|Laurie Roth will be live at 4p CST on Saturday Session|
She been a TV host, a one-time top 40 artist, a marshal arts contender and is considered the "Annie Oakley of the Airwaves." Now Laurie Roth is running for President of the United States in the Constitution Party and will be on Saturday Session tonight. We'll discuss her platform and why she thinks it's time to get away from the two party system.
The coming internet lockdown
So many things signal that our exchange of information over the Internet is in jeopardy. Even after the defeat of SOPA/PIPA, there are other seriously egregious pieces of legislation down the pike that we must be vigilant against. It's important to use the Internet to it's fullest capabilities while we have it and while it appears to be free. This is an infowar, there's no question about it.
"No birth certificate has been submitted"
That's what a defense attorney working to represent President Barack Obama said. The case is in a New Jersey court where members of an area TEA Party group pushed the issue. There is video of the Obama's defense attorney clearly saying that no birth certificate has been produced yet continues to say that the one released nationally hinting at it's acceptance by all the states.

Even the judge concedes that the Secretary of State in New Jersey has not received a birth certificate from the Obama administration but the suit is saying that if challenged they are legally required to. We'll talk about this interesting legal case, the questions, and the direction projected here on out. Will other media dare to discuss this? Saturday Session will and you can sound off by listening live (Saturdays 3 to 7p CST) and calling in 217.629.7970.
Red-light cameras and drones! Oh my!
"The technology is there so let's use it to enforce the law" many may say but do they understand the true consequence of setting the precedent? Cameras catching people driving through a school zone at high rate of speed or maybe taking a clear snapshot of the moment a person crosses the white line at a red light sounds like a good thing, but the issue isn't about keeping people from breaking the law or even about generating revenue. The issue is the deferment of enforcement of certain law to technology rather than relying on the discretion of the officer. That precedent has already been set time and again with red-light or speed cameras, but what about arresting people using drones?
