New York Police Confiscating Firearms from People Taking Anti-anxiety Medication

Yep folks inch by inch they are coming. Is anyone else besides me tired of playing by the rules? You know we’re the good guys and we don’t cheat.

Frankly I am so sick and friggen tired of it. They just trample EVERYTHING that is decent and right that is in this world. They lie, cheat , beat , and yes even kill for their agenda. How bout we start drawing a line in the sand and say you better not cross this or I’m gonna bop you UPSIDE the head. I’m sorry but

the marquis de queensbury rules simply don’t apply anymore.

I forget who said it But it went something like this.
“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”  
This story grabs me by my gut and makes me want to hurl. HIPPA, Dr. Patient ——privacy, civil rights. Where is the outrage.?—————–

Government increases “onerous activity” to confiscate legal firearms.
April 9, 2013


The New York State Police are suspending the handgun permits of people in the state who are prescribed anti-anxiety medication, according to Jim Tresmond of the Tresmond Law Firm in Hamburg, New York. Tresmond Law specializes in firearm litigation.
“We are representing a client right now who is impacted by this onerous activity of the government,” Tresmond told WBEN, a news talk radio station in Buffalo, New York.
“We were flummoxed by this whole matter,” the attorney said. “The HIPPA act is supposed to prevent this kind of thing from happening. It’s a gross invasion of our privacy rights.”
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.
Tresmond said the New York State Police are responsible for taking action against legal firearms owners. “Based on information the county received from the New York State Police, they’ve suspended the permits. The State Police instigates the proceedings.”
Section 9.46 of the NY SAFE Act of 2013 authorizes therapists, doctors, nurses and social workers to report patients they determine may engage in conduct that may result in harm to self or others. If a determination is made that the person in question poses a threat, the provision permits the government to confiscate firearms. The provision is a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment and the legal standard of probable cause.
Experts said many mental health providers will likely ignore the provision.
NY SAFE was passed by the New York State Legislature on January 15, 2013, and was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo the same day.

A Speech Every American High School Principal Should Give

This is a speech that Dennis Prager  ( Radio Talk show Host)  gave.  He did not deliver to a school audience, just as a monologue on his show one night.
dennis prager

He said this would be first speech he would give if he was a principal.

By Dennis Prager,
To the students and faculty of our high school:
I am your new principal, and honored to be so.
There is no greater calling than to teach young people. I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school. I am making these changes because I am convinced that most of the  ideas
that have dominated public education in America have worked against you, against your teachers and against our country.
First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity. I could not care less if your racial makeup is black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could not care less if your origins are African, Latin American, Asian or European, or if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships. The only identity I care about, the only one this school will recognize, is your individual identity — your character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school will care about is American.
This is an American public  school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans. If you wish to affirm an ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity, race and non-American nationality-based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America , one of its three central values —
epluribus Unum, “from many, one.” And this school will be guided by America’s values. This includes all after-school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political correctness.
Your clubs will be based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other physically defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism — an unhealthy preoccupation with the self — while the purpose of  education is to get you to think beyond yourself. So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being interested in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that means that little outside of yourself really interests you.
Second, I am uninterested in whether English is your native language. My only interest in terms of language is that you leave this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The English language has united America ‘s citizens for over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school. It is one of the indispensable reasons this country of immigrants has always come to be one country. And if you  leave this school without excellent English language skills, I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the American job market. We will learn other languages here — it is deplorable that most Americans only speak English — but if you want classes taught in your native language rather than in English, this is not your school.
Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor , everything in this school will reflect learning’s elevated status. This means, among other things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in our society dress more formally for Hollywood events than for church or school. These people have their priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal dress code at this school.
Fourth, no obscene language will be tolerated anywhere on this school’s property — whether in class, in the hallways or at athletic events. If you can’t speak without using the f -word, you can’t speak. By obscene language, I mean the words banned by the Federal Communications Commission, plus epithets such as “Nigger,” even when used by one black student to address another black, or “bitch,” even when addressed by a girl to a girlfriend. It is my intent that by the time you leave this school, you will be among the few your age to instinctively distinguish between the elevated and the degraded, the holy and the obscene.
Fifth, we will end all self-esteem programs. In this school, self-esteem
will be attained in only one way — the way people attained it until decided
otherwise a generation ago — by earning it. One immediate consequence is
that there will be one valedictorian, not eight.
Sixth, and last, I am reorienting the school toward academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will be devoted to scaring you about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about sexual harassment or global warming. No more semesters will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as only or primarily a health issue… There will be no more attempts to convince you that you are a victim because you are not white, or not male, or not heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any one of you  graduates this school and does not consider him or herself inordinately fortunate — to be alive and to be an American.
Now, please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of
our country. As many of you do not know the words, your teachers will hand them out to you.
Furthermore the speech has been checked out at truth or fiction below.

Ant and Grasshopper – New revised version!

My laptop regularly gets updates of its software programs: Windows, Adobe, McAfee….
It’s time we update that old Aesop’s fable about the ant and the grasshopper. Below is “The And and the Grasshopper 2.0” that’s been circulating on the net, with some tweaking on my part to update it fully into a brand-new 3.0 version.  😉
H/t FOTM’s Christine (aka Annathule)!



The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away..
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.  The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!
*     *     *     *     *     *


The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.
CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Big Bird, Elmo the pederast, and Kermit the Frog appear on Sesame Street with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, “It’s Not Easy Being Green.”
SEIU,, and Occupy (whatever) stage a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, ”Down with the 1%!” Rev. Jesse Jackson condemns the ant for his selfishness.
Obama says if he had a son, he’d look just like the grasshopper, then blames President George W. Bush and wealthy Americans for the grasshopper’s plight. Pointing to the ant’s house with an accusing finger, Obama declares “You didn’t build it!” and urges all grasshoppers in America to “seek revenge.”
Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate 100% tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share. The EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Ant Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.
The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the IRS in the name of Obamacare and given to the grasshopper.
Believing America to be a rule of law, the ant appeals his case to the Supreme Court, but the court says Obamacare is perfectly constitutional and the IRS confiscation is just a tax.
The ant tries to resist. But armed soldiers come to his door to arrest the ant without charge or trial, in the name of a law passed by both houses of Congress and signed by Obama (National Defense Authorization Act).
Thankfully, being very very small, the ant eludes his captors by hiding under a dry leaf.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food, having taken over the ant’s home, which the government has designated a Section 8 housing. It wasn’t long before the house falls into disrepair and filth because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it since he doesn’t own it and he didn’t build it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.
A month later, the grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the now-ramshackled, once prosperous and once peaceful, neighborhood.
The entire Nation collapses taking the rest of the free world with it.
MORAL OF THE STORY:  As America voted on Nov. 6, 2012, so shall America reap.

Just as predicted…

Remember the mother of four from Florida who left her family behind to join the Occupy movement in New York? In October 2011, Stacey Hessler compared her decision to abandon her family to Americans serving in the armed forces. “Military people leave their families all the time, so why should I feel bad?” a defiant Hessler said. “I’m fighting for a better world.” As predicted, she’s now divorced.

After ditching her family, Occupy mom snags $85K in divorce

NY Post: She’s protesting banks — but still getting a bailout. The Florida housewife who abandoned her family to join Occupy Wall Street is divorcing, giving up custody of her four kids and taking a big payout from her husband.

Professional protester Stacey Hessler is legally splitting from her hubby, Curtiss, but not before waltzing off with a portfolio that includes cash and his 401(k) retirement fund, filled with stocks and other instruments of American capitalism. The divorce settlement, filed Oct. 16, awards Occu-Mom the $79,585 fund and a $5,800 bank account. Her total take: $85,385.

The filing lists Curtiss’ occupation as banker and says he earns $65,000 a year. Her job is listed in court papers as “protester” and her employer as “Occupy Wall Street.” Annual salary: $0.

Divorce papers cite “irreconcilable differences” for the split, saying the 19-year marriage “is irretrievably broken.”

One OWS protester who knows her says that Stacey’s devotion to the movement caused the divorce but that she was unfazed by the breakup. “She didn’t seem sad about any of it,” the source said. “It was just so matter-of-fact.”

As recently as last month, Stacey, 39, was sleeping in front of a Wells Fargo bank branch in the Financial District near Zuccotti Park, but it appears she scrambled back home to suburban DeLand to finalize the divorce.

Wearing her professional-protester uniform — a bandana and patchwork clothes — she refused to say what her plans were or when she’d be leaving the house. But she did respond when a Post reporter asked about a YouTube video showing her making out with another protester during an Occupy “Kiss In” on Valentine’s Day. “I actually made out with four guys,” she said, laughing wildly.

Curtiss, 43, initiated the divorce in Volusia County, Fla., where the couple raised their family about 25 miles west of Daytona Beach. The husband, a former Bank of America financial adviser, along with son Peyton, 18, and daughters Kennedy, 16, Sullivan, 14, and Veda, 8, reside in the three-bedroom, bungalow-style home built in 1952 on the ironically named East Rich Avenue. It’s the picture of Americana, complete with a white picket fence and sprawling back yard.

Under the settlement, Curtiss keeps the $65,000 house and assumes the $13,000 mortgage. He also gets custody of the children. “The children will be under primary care of their father,” state the settlement papers the couple jointly submitted. He has them every weekday, weekend, holiday and school break. She can see them any time, but only when “they want to see her” and only in a “safe environment,” the papers say.

That probably means the kids won’t be visiting her at the downtown Chase bank vestibule or Brooklyn hostel where she’s known to crash — or sharing any handout meals served in the public atrium at 60 Wall St.

Hessler — who has described herself as “midwives assistant, roller-derby queen, rock-star musician, activist, dreadlock princess, African-bee keeper and organic vegan freak” — showed up at Zuccotti Park a year ago and threw herself into the Occupy movement.

The Long Island native twisted her hair into long, scraggly dreadlocks and dressed in raggedy outfits that included a “Make Love, Not War” T-shirt. She slept under a tarp, cozying up to Rami Shamir, a 30-year-old waiter at a Brooklyn bistro.

In November, she was arrested near the park and charged with disorderly conduct. Cops said she blocked traffic and refused orders to move.

Curtiss, asked about the divorce, said, “No comment.” “It hasn’t been easy on the guy,” said a friend of his.

The father and children are much better off without this narcissistic woman.  And a hypocritical one at that – she protests the greedy bankers yet makes off with thousands of dollars for being nothing more than a moocher. Shameful.

Portlanders “liberate” foreclosed home

Woman facing eviction: ‘I’m not moving’

KATU: A local woman involved in a long fight against eviction faced a deadline last Thursday and demonstrators gathered outside her home in a show of support. “I’m not moving,” said Alicia Jackson, who lost her home to foreclosure last year. “They need to move and turn the water on. I don’t see why anyone should move out of their homes.

Jackson did leave her house last year after failing to make payments but protesters ‘reclaimed’ it for her and handed back her keys. At the time, police let the events unfold but said they would eventually take action to remove her from the home.

A formal eviction was scheduled for Thursday and once again, Jackson’s supporters gathered outside the woman’s home to fight for her. The effort was spearheaded by We Are Oregon and folks from Occupy Portland, the Blazing Arrow Organization and other groups are involved as well.

Early Thursday morning, demonstrators held a press conference to explain Jackson’s situation and rally supporters. The main objective, according to Alejandro Juarez with We Are Oregon, is to get the water turned back on at the house.

The city plans to remove Jackson because the house lacks water service and is considered unfit for habitation. Jackson has offered to pay the overdue bill, but the city won’t take her money because she doesn’t own the building. Portland Water Bureau administrator David Shaff says the company that owns it is trying to evict Jackson and doesn’t want water service restored.

Juarez said Jackson has been making an effort to work with the city on the water situation. “We don’t think it’s fair that they (the city) are refusing to turn it on,” Juarez said. “They should do that (turn the water on) while she’s fighting the courts. Alicia has offered to pay the water bill and give the city revenue until this is over.” Jackson’s supporters have been bringing jugs of water to the house to help her out.

As far as the bigger picture goes, Juarez said his group is trying to educate people about foreclosure and what their options are. He said they want people to understand that they can fight back against the banks and should not give up easily when it comes to keeping a roof over their head. “We’re telling them not to move out of their homes and not to self evict,” he said.

Jackson, who works part-time as a construction road crew flagger, has been living without water in the home since May, when supporters marched from nearby Woodlawn Park and helped her move back in after she was first evicted.

“We feel it would be better to have someone in this house than have it vacant and boarded up, but the city’s answer is to have the house empty,” said Ahjamu Umi, of Occupy NE, also known as The Black Working Group. “To refuse Ms. Jackson’s service, the city is taking sides with the banks,” said the Rev. Cecil Prescod of the Ainsworth United Church of Christ.

Jackson, who told The Oregonian on Wednesday that she knew this day would come, drew cheers from the crowd when she said, “I am one of the last African-Americans living in this neighborhood. We have to stop the issue of home-poaching and gentrification.

To support Jackson and push back against what supporters called corporate greed, “gangster banks,” and racist foreclosure practices, campers  were invited to stake tents on the property. More Port-a-Johns will be installed, organizers said, and a meeting for campers will be held at noon.

Now whether the city and/or police actually show up to forcibly evict Jackson on Thursday is unknown at this point. The eviction order does state that the city needs to do a ‘security board up’ before Jackson is told to leave but at this point that has not been done.

I understand times are tough for many.  Yet how can one claim they have a right to a home in which they don’t make payments? When you sign a contract you are held to the terms. It amazes me that people don’t want to take personal responsibility for their actions.

Two CBS affiliates declared Obama the winner 18 days before election

Remember this?

And this?

And this?

Here’s the latest example:

On Oct. 19, 2012, two CBS affiliates — KPHO in Phoenix, Arizona, and WCPO in Cincinnati, Ohio — had already called the election with Obama as the winner.

Randy Hall reports for NewsBusters, Oct. 22, 2012, that during last Friday’s edition of “The People’s Court” at 3:30 p.m. on KPHO, Phoenix, a “lower-third graphic” scrolled across the bottom of the screen and stated that with 99% of all precincts reporting, Obama had won the nationwide vote, 43% v. 40% or 40,237, 966 votes v. Romney’s 38,116,216.


Here’s a blow-up of the banner:

After 17 seconds, the banner disappeared.

Soon after, WCPO in Cleveland posted a list of vote totals for the Nov. 6 election that again declared Obama the victor in the presidential election and even stated that Ohio’s Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown was re-elected to his U.S. Senate seat. Below is a screen shot taken by the blog TexasDarlin:

Here’s a blowup of the WCPO screen shot showing that in Ohio, with 100% of precincts reporting, Obama won by a 7 point margin, 46% vs. Romney’s 39%:

WCPO’s election results site is now back to 0% precincts reporting.

A commenter on TexasDarlin, Mike Dolanson, poo-pooed questions about WCPO’s premature election results: “I worked at local TV stations for years. Stations test their on-air and online systems in the weeks leading up to elections. Random results are put in to make sure everything is ready and then zero’ed out. Occassionally, something isn’t right and it appears on the screen for a second or on the website for a brief time. That’s all. There is no fix — unless you’re paranoid.”

To that, other commenters made these excellent ripostes:

  • cbas: “So why not put all zeros in the results instead of random numbers?”
  • Jim Wafwot: “Why not put exact numbers for each party so they show 45% – 45% ?”
  • Reidmere: “I own a radio site, and when working on ‘test’ pages that you want to have live, you put it on an unlinked URL, not your homepages. Any professional tech knows this. Poor excuse: And this is coming from a programmer and web dev.”
  • a: “Maybe if they say Obama wins they may think that people won’t bother to vote for Mitt….it is some kind of scam.”
  • Guy S: “Some will claim this is simply an accident as stations prepare for the election and test pages for broadcast. Sorry, I’m not buying it. I interned at a PBS TV Station in Boise, Idaho as a cameraman and believe you me, the directors are anal about what is and is not done. And that’s PBS! To say that an ABC or CBS affiliate would ‘accidentally” run something like this stinks to high heavens!”

One CBS affiliate making a mistake, I can understand.

But TWO? And BOTH “mistakes” are in Obama’s favor?

What are the chances of that happening “by accident”?

Rapper Wyclef Jean’s Haiti charity a cesspool of fraud

Donating to charities is now a hazardous undertaking.

We must exercise caution and discernment when we give to even well-established charities like United Way, given disgraceful incidents of their CEOs’ misuse of donated funds on lavish personal expenditures like gold bathroom faucets. All the more dubious are charities set up by “celebrities” in the “entertainment” industry which lack a track record as well as institutionalized checks and balance. Madonna Louise Ciccone’s Malawi charity is an example. Here’s the latest.

Wyclef Jean is a Haiti-born American rapper, singer, record producer, and aspiring politician. Although he has an estimated net worth of $50 million, Jean fancies himself one of the oppressed 99% and is a vocal supporter of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

In April 2012, Jean released a song “Justice” as a musical tribute to Trayvon Martin

In 2004, Jean set up a charitable organization “Yele Haiti” to help his poor homeland. In 2010, a terrible 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Port-au-Prince, Haiti, killing more than 316,000 and leaving one million homeless. Yele Haiti received millions of dollars in donation from viewers of the MTV telethon Hope for Haiti and audiences for numerous benefit concerts and other events.

The UK’s Daily Mail reports, Oct. 12, 2012, that Jean’s Haiti charity is a “cesspool of fraud and broken promises” and has collapsed under a mountain of debt.

The collapse of the organization once labelled by its founder as Haiti’s ‘greatest asset and ally’ comes after years of accusations of mishandled funds totaling $16million.

The group, which the Haitian-born Jean stated in 2004, was small in its first years of operation, with assets amounting to only $37,000, but according to the New York Times, after the devastating 2010 earthquake, donations started pouring in.

Jean said he raised $1million in 24 hours after issuing a plea for help on Twitter. But rather than using the money to help the millions of displaced residents living on the quake-ravaged streets of Port-au-Prince, the Times reported that Yele funneled a large portion of the funds to pay for  ‘offices, salaries, consultants’ fees and travel’ to say nothing of Jean’s family, friends and legal team.

In one case, the group allegedly shelled out $30,763 to fly Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan from New Jersey to a charity event in Chicago that raised $66,000.

In another instance, Yele Haiti spent nearly $58,000 on private jets to fly actor Matt Damon and Jean’s other celebrity friends to Haiti. [One would think that given Damon’s estimated earnings of $65 million and his vaunted reputation as a philanthropist, he could have paid for his own transportation to Haiti. ~Eowyn]

Wyclef Jean (why is he wearing army fatigues?) and Matt Damon handing out relief food to Haiti’s earthquake survivors.

‘If I had depended on Yele, these kids would all be dead by now,’ says Diaoly Estime, who runs an orphanage in Haiti’s capital.

Following the earthquake, Yele spent $9 million of its $16 million on office space, workers’ salaries and other expenses.

About $600,000 in donations went toward Yele’s headquarters, which have since been abandoned; another $375,000 was used to cover ‘landscaping’ costs; and more than $470,000 was spent on food and beverages.

Wyclef Jean, who made an unsuccessful bid for Haiti’s presidency in 2010, reportedly paid himself $100,000 to perform in a charity concert and gave his family over $500,000 for unspecified work. Also, $37,000 was paid by Yele to cover the rent of Jean’s Manhattan studio.

According to The Smoking Gun, the charity also made payments of more than $100,000 to the alleged mistress of the married 42-year-old singer.

As for Yele’s much-hyped revitalization plans, many of them never got off the ground. The group paid $146,000 to build a medical center inside geodesic domes and another $93,000 to erect temporary housing, but neither project was completed.

A New York attorney general’s investigation into Yele’s pre-earthquake activities has already found financial improprieties. The forensic audit covering the time period between 2005 and 2009 found $256,580 in illegitimate benefits to Jean and other Yéle board and staff members, as well as other improper transactions.

At the end of August, Derek Q. Johnson, Yele’s chief executive, announced his resignation after Jean rejected a settlement offered by the attorney general that would have required the singer and the two other Yele founders to pay $600,000 in restitution ‘to remedy the waste of the foundation’s assets.’

Before I give to a charity, I always check it out on websites such as Charity Navigator.
