What has become mainstream news and circulating the rounds on some talk shows has serious implications for the direction our society is going. If you haven't read the story of the marine who was forcibly "committed," while under duress, to a psychiatric hospital for postings he made on a Facebook page, you can get the latest here. Something this program has experience for it's entire existence is a seemingly constant campaign to disenfranchise and discredit an open discourse of non-traditional or mainstream thoughts and opinions. "Got the tin foil hat on?" "How's that Kool-Aid? This attidude towards exercising inquisitive thought is not just dishartening, it's dangerous. There are already call from very loud speakers to medicate or commit people who say something that goes against conventional political dialog. Not that I support Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, but look at how much flack he caught for joking about his birth certificate!
Coming Civil War?
|Judge Tom Head talks about a possible civil war|
A judge down in Texas is calling for more taxes so he can have some well trained backup in case President Obama gets reelected and brings in the UN to ease civil unrest, or possibly even civil war. We'll dissect the judges comments (linked here) and also look at some evidence of how US sovereignty is already being threatened by the United Nations. Is this all just crazy conspiracy theory or should people really be concerned, regardless of who is in the White House, about the sovereignty of this country? We'll get to the bottom of it tonight on Saturday Session!
Taking the government to court
What happens when government, or it's employees, go wild? We've seen our fair share of instances here in Springfield, and in Sangamon County in general. Be it deaths in the Sangamon County Jail or cases of discrimination in Springfield and elsewhere--taxpayer dollars are being eaten up by costly lawsuits being settled out of court. We'll discuss the pros and cons of settling out of court and just how much some recent incidents have cost taxpayers right here in central Illinois--most of which we'll cover involved police.
We'll quickly just evaluate what went down in New York City where a handful of people found them selves on the other end of a shootout Friday. Was it really a shootout? We'll dig into the forensics of the New York shooting where 10-some-odd people were injured in crossfire from police bullets after one person killed his former coworker and then got shot by police. Also, what about that super-duper survielance state in New York City? Plus, how could we not talk about the gun violence in Chicago and the state's attorney who is unwilling to enforce concealed carry laws?
News on the March and more
There's so much news this week, it's gonna be difficult to cover it all, but we'll attempt to blow through some of the major stories that may have been missed. Plus we'll talk about the upcoming political coronations ... er, I mean conventions where party platforms and, in particular, the GOP nomination will officially be made. By the way, did you see that Texas Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul will not be speaking at the GOP convention?
