"The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse." -- James Madison - (1751-1836)

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force. " :
Ayn Rand in "The Nature of Government"

"Throughout history there have been tyrants and murderers. And for a while they seem invincible, but always they fall. Always."-Mahatma Gandhi

Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all -- the apathy of human beings: Helen Keller

The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naive and usually idiotic. He is , more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime ; he is a good citizen driven to despair.--H.L Mencken

"When even one American-who has done nothing wrong-is forced by fear to shut his mind and close his mouth-then all Americans are in peril" Harry S. Truman

"The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers, is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist."- Winston Churchill, Nov. 21, 1943

"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed: Ayn Rand - (1905-1982) Author - Source: Atlas Shrugged, Francisco's "Money Speech"

"Loss of freedom seldom happens overnight. Oppression doesn't stand on the doorstep with toothbrush moustache and swastika armband -- it creeps up insidiously...step by step, and all of a sudden the unfortunate citizen realizes that it is gone." ~ Baron Lane

Oh Look....Terrorists Can Investigate Themselves These Days.....And Find Themselves Innocent Too...

Well, the result have come back from one of the many investigations I instigated on the abuse of power issue with CPS that I wrote about in my last post. In a letter I received this past week from the CPS Consumer Affairs office.....a rather Orwellian name for this office, as if anyone CHOOSES to be a CPS “consumer”......they state that they have investigated themselves, and ...SURPRISE!!!!....they have come to the conclusion that there was no wrong doing. Apparently, this “investigation” entailed asking the CPS investigators involved whether they had abused their power, and they ...of course...lied. None of the impartial witnesses on the scene when this visit took place ....two Sheriff's deputies and one local Constable...were questioned as to what occurred, nor was I contacted. Mr. Ramos denies threatening me over keeping dogs indoors, having a camp fire in the yard, or giving my girls a bath rather than a shower, and his partner in crime, Ms. Carrasco lied for him as well. I guess I am supposed to accept that I must have been hearing things and go along my merry way. Fortunately, there is another witness to this misconduct that CPS has yet to become aware of....who remained inside listening at an open window to all threats made that day.......so things are going to get interesting. ....To be continued.......
