Hello to fascism?
My blogfather Jeff has one hell of a good post on the sickening news that the Bill of Rights no longer applies in Louisiana.

Every two-bit corrupt cop can now just bust into your home and search it for what ever he/she wants without cause. Oh yeah, they would only use it with discretion. Right! This is fucking evil. This is anti-American. This is the most diseased Circuit Court decision ever handed down in the short history of our once (but apparently not anymore) great nation.
A very, very, very deep ditch with all of them. Dammit! I would hope that this quickly makes it’s way to the Supreme Court but these days who the fuck knows how they would rule? It amazes me as to how much more wisdom our founders had than we seem to exhibit today:

“When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” (Jefferson)

“The man who trades freedom for security does not deserve nor will he ever receive either.”
–Benjamin Franklin

Words to live by. And yet, we seem to have forgotten them. Certainly the cow-shit judges on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals have. Damn them to hell.

Agree completely. Straight to hell with the lot of them. Jeff also asks why there’s been no hue and cry:

I am just in awe of how citizens — let’s call ourselves “subjects” now — have become nothing more than pods in The Matrix. And I see no hue-and-cry from anyone. Naturally the left is silent since this fits in with their plan to control all of our lives. But where –oh where– are the libertarians’ and conservatives’ voices?

That’s a good question. And why do I expect that we’ll hear more from the former than the latter?
Might it be that no one (especially in the estabishment elite) really cares what happens to the “little people” who live down there in “flyover country”?
Or do they just assume that our Supreme Court will strike down this abuse? If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that you don’t assume anything. (There’s even a growing movement to stop the Supreme Court from protecting what’s left of our freedom.)
Anyway, read Jeff’s whole post.
And weep.
