"A tax protester may not sell his book that contends paying income tax is voluntary, a federal judge ruled Monday."

"U.S. District Judge Lloyd D. George wrote in an order banning the book that Irwin Schiff is not protected by the First Amendment because he has encouraged people not to pay taxes."

-------
Amendment I

“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.”

Unbelievable! According to this insanity, the perverts at NAMBLA are protected, but you can't question the legitimacy of the Income Tax or the IRS.

"In a 6-3 decision, justices reversed a lower court ruling that ordered Dr. Charles Sell to be medicated against his will, though two lower federal courts had agreed he posed no threat to himself or to others."

" 'Never did we think our own country would imprison a peaceful defendant for more than five years without a trial,' said AAPS general counsel Andrew Schlafly."

"We used to complain when the communists engaged in such tactics... This should not occur in America."

"When we study socialist countries -- be they Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union or too many others -- we find a concept in the law called 'crimes against the state.' These are also sometimes called crimes against the people. In earlier days, they might have been called crimes against the king's peace. Biblically and constitutionally, crimes are against individuals and should result in capital punishment, restitution or acquittal. Non-criminal damages should lead to restitution." ...

"Apparently, under Washington’s post-Iraq mandate, all Americans now include Latin Americans too. Since the terror attacks on New York and Washington 21 months ago, the US government, in its zeal to globalize snooping on its own people, has bought access to the personal records of more than 300 million Latin Americans, including the citizens of the region’s two most populous nations, Mexico and Brazil, as well as Argentina, Colombia, and Costa Rica."

"The three were among 12 people -- 11 of them African Americans -- who walked free on bail today in this tiny Texas Panhandle town, after four years in prison on drug convictions that a Texas judge and prosecutors now agree were a travesty of justice based on the uncorroborated testimony of a racist white police officer. Two weeks ago, Gov. Rick Perry signed a bill allowing them to be released pending an appeals court's review, cutting short sentences ranging from 20 to 90 years."

"In a surprise move, the Ohio Senate Judiciary Committee on Criminal Justice today passed an amended House Bill 12 today on a 6-0 vote (Senators Stivers, Schuring and Goodman were not present at the time of the vote)." ...

"The amended bill is, in almost all respects, identical to the one passed by the Senate last December, and for which the Ohio House refused to reconvene for a vote of concurrence. The only significant difference is that license-holders would be allowed to 'open' carry their firearms in their personal vehicles, IF no occupants are under 18. If they are under 18, the firearm must be in a locked container."

"Intelligent seats could soon be informing airline crews whether a passenger is a nervous flyer, a potential terrorist or has been sitting still too long and could be at risk of developing blood clots."

"Qinetiq, which was set up last year in a part privatization of Britain's former Defence Evaluation and Research Agency, is developing airline seats with sensors that can relay signals assessing a passenger's behavior to a central computer."

"Well, we had to turn the plane around because passenger 13B's chair said he was sweating too much. In a universe where guns kill people, upholstery can have a unique window into the depths of the human psyche. Why not?

Domestic Disputes - Bad Social Science Makes Bad Legal Policy

"What the University of Pennsylvania study found was a statistical correlation: Gun ownership is correlated with gun deaths. But that two things are correlated doesn't prove that one causes the other. The sex-crime rate is correlated over time with the use of air conditioning, but not because air conditioning causes sex crime; rather, both rise during the summer months. Likewise, whether someone in your home has been to the hospital recently is correlated with death in your home, but not because hospital care tends to kill people (though sometimes it does). Rather, both hospital stays and deaths often have a common cause: serious illness."

" 'This is one of the most satisfying experiences of the job,' says Durand. 'Because I know for a fact these guns won't be used again in any illegal activity.' "

"Once the stash of illegal or unclaimed weapons builds up, Durand is in charge of destroying them. He says he's just now getting rid of guns from cases in the year 2000. Many people think the weapons confiscated by police are then used by police, but that isn't the case. Very few of these weapons meet their strict standards."

Anyone Believe That the Media Isn't Biased Liberal?

"That's the trick. Mr. Alterman's project isn't really to disprove that the media are liberal, but rather to move the already liberal media further to the left. He admits that 'elite media reporting favors gun control, campaign finance reform, gay rights, and the environmental movement.' He simply isn't bothered by that, 'as some conservative critics are.' "

"Keep in mind that Eric Alterman is media critic for The Nation--a hysterically left-wing magazine dedicated to the proposition that corporate America, U.S. foreign policy, and the Republican Party are criminal, racist, or both. The simple reality is that, for him, the Democratic Party is far too conservative."

"It may not seem like a long time, after all, it will be for 'just' three days."

"Be that as it may, Ronald Dixon is being taken away from his children, his home and his employment to be locked up because he acted reasonably, saving his children from a hardened criminal who had broken into his home." ...

"Crime is high in Brooklyn, New York where Ronald Dixon lives. Gangs use illegal weapons to murder, rob and terrorize neighborhoods. They are bad people who should be put in jail, and no one, not anyone reasonable anyway, would compare their actions with the actions of a father trying to protect his children from them. Moral equivalency under these circumstances is not just ridiculous, it is absurd. Yet, that is what the DA in New York is saying. The people who defend against the animals who prey on human victims are no better than those criminals and need to spend time in jail."

Who Let 'Enrique Sosa Alvarez' Loose?

"Without solid verification of 'Alvarez's' identity, it's impossible to know whether he had a history of child abduction or child molestation in his native country. We also don't know whether immigration officials are responsible for letting 'Cruz/Alvarez' loose in violation of federal law after his auto theft conviction. Criminal aliens are supposed to be taken immediately into federal immigration custody after serving their sentences. But as the Justice Department's inspector general reported, the Immigration and Naturalization Service's failure to track foreign-born inmates led to the release of 35,318 criminal aliens into the general population in 2000 -- roughly one-third of whom went on to commit serious crimes."

"The official reason why shooting sports and other events were cut this year is financial--they all draw few spectators and a relatively small number of competitors." ...

"Shooters and other shooting enthusiasts are skeptical, however. The games more than pay for themselves--even with low-performing events." ...

"The games are run by predominately urban and suburban administrators who've been talking about eliminating the shooting sports for years. And for decades antigunners have forced shooting ranges to comply with expensive environmental regulations to remove lead bullets from the backstops behind their targets as well as to install costly ventilation systems in indoor ranges. Many of the high schools that still had shooting teams were forced to disband them and close their ranges to save money. That, combined with strict gun-control regulations that bar anyone under 21 from possessing a pistol, has devastated the youth competitions."

"The new 'smart dust' chip integrates sensors and transmitters onto a platform that measures a mere 5 square millimeters, or slightly bigger than a fleck of glitter."

"The chip will be the brains behind the new generation mote, dubbed 'Spec' by its creators. It's a significant milestone in the Smart Dust and TinyOS projects, which are part of UC Berkeley's Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS). The projects seek to create low-powered, low-cost wireless sensor devices, or motes, roughly the size of a grain of sand."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? [...] The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!" —Alexander Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago (Chapter 1 "Arrest")
