Monday Miscellany

1. advertisers21. Obama’s Top 10 Constitutional Violations Of 2013 : “Unfortunately, the president fomented this upswing in civic interest not by talking up the constitutional aspects of his policy agenda, but by blatantly violating the strictures of our founding document.”

2. The NSA Actually Intercepted Packages to Put Backdoors in Electronics : “The NSA revelations keep on coming, and if you’re feeling desensitized to the whole thing it’s time to refocus and get your game face on for 2014. Because shit continues to get real.”

3. Millions Falsely Treated for Cancer says National Cancer Institute Report : “A significant number of people who have undergone treatment for cancer over the past several decades may not have ever actually had the disease, admits a new report commissioned by the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI).”

4. How to avoid Cancer : “When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.”

5. H1N1 Flu Virus Surfaces In Chicago : “Nearly two dozen cases of the potentially deadly H1N1 flu virus have been confirmed in the Chicago area.”

7. The Stock Market Has Officially Entered Crazytown Territory : “It is time to crank up the Looney Tunes theme song because Wall Street has officially entered crazytown territory. Stocks just keep going higher and higher, and at this point what is happening in the stock market does not bear any resemblance to what is going on in the overall economy whatsoever. So how long can this irrational state of affairs possibly continue?”

8. Governor calling for Martial Law in Chicago :

  1. Old USAF Nurse says:

    Happy new year to all. These subjects are the tip of the iceberg. 2014 looks ominous. Time to ramp up prep work.

  2. H1N1 is the dominant strain in the U.S. right now. Here’s a link to this week’s CDC report.

    Given that the vast number of people infected with the flu never seek medical help and that those who do go to the doctor are diagnosed clinically (a culture is never performed), the incidence of flu is under reported.

    • Patriot Dave says:

      with all the holiday travel going on, I am positive this is just the beginning. Time to bring back the Paul Harvey thing. He proposed that instead of shaking hands that we give each other a snappy salute. It is still friendly, but may cut down on the spread.

  3. #7. This is why I am having trouble waiting until my 59 1/2 birthday to putt the rest of my money out of the market. Until then, I hope they have a riotous upswing!

  4. Donna in MN says:

    The tyrany over obcare and the way it won’t work has kept me far away from it with the unconstitutional changes were made. A little over a million signed up including medicade people and they needed 7 million healthy young people to pay for it. Not happening, and wait until the horror stories come out after Jan 1st. “Oh, look over there” distractions will be common in the lamestream media to hide what is really happening with obcare.

    NSA putting their spyware in hijacked new computers? Stalin would be proud of this admin.

    H1N1 flu is here in Minnesota, and with it being so frigid keeping groups indoors, it will spread like wildfire. It was 20 below this morning here. I have taken steps to have very little contact this winter where sick or carriers of flu gather.

    The stock market’s bubble (propped up by printing fake money) is reminisent of the housing bubble before the crash of 08 when the banks bundled and sold bad loans which was as good a fake money.
    There will be a correction and that will be our new depression.

  5. I have considered giving up my driver’s license in 2015 when it is up for renewal. But then Oregon is so far behind on compliance, it may not be an issue. (Wouldn’t be too much of a hardship–I really don’t like to drive.) However, I would probably have to shred my passport….

  6. #8, why don’t they talk about the elephant in the room, only criminals have guns in Chicago! Illinois is struggling with their concealed carry law, and all of the gangbangers carry all of the time. This is most definitely a case of when seconds count the police are minutes(hours?) away. People are responsible for their own safety, sheeple are always waiting on the gooberment to protect them.

  7. j.r. guerra in s. tx. says:

    #6 – wouldn’t the need for Social Security for driver’s license preclude illegals from getting a driver’s license.

    My driver’s license (TDL) is up for renewal soon, good knowledge to know. Thanks.

  8. ozhillbilly says:

    Hi Pack. I don’t understand where the outrage is on this stuff? If this would have happened say ten years ago there certainly would have been an uproar about it. We certainly are living in difficult times. Love the wolf thing. Is there going to be a t shirt?

  9. Hunker-Down says:

    #8. The gun laws in Chicago are the problem. Statistics in states with CC permits show crime decreasing. They are ignoring those stats because to let the citizens arm themselves makes implementing Martial law difficult.

    Chicago may be the test case to see how the sheeple respond to martial law. If there is no push back it opens the door to do the same nationally.

  10. HD, it will be a test case. Like I mentioned in a previous comment a few days ago, there are Stalin and Hitler wannabes out there taking notes on what Obama and his like-minded thugs can and cannot get away with and making their plans accordingly.

  11. I think that if martial law is called in Chicago, we would be wise to watch its roll out carefully. First thoughts, the whole city? or the crime ridden south side? What kind of vehicles and how many of them are going to be rolling through the streets………and which are located where. Are the LE officers rolling in those vehicles Chicago PD or will there be UN troops in them? Where are the staging areas for the equipment they will be driving/using. How much restriction of basic services is going to happen, access to food, medical supplies, etc is going to be important.

    • Nebraska Woman says:

      Worrisome, our politicians pass laws that they don’t read without thinking of the consequences. I’m sure that not one of them ever asked the sensible questions that you just did. Wanna run for President? You’d be a breath of fresh air.

    • Hunker-Down says:

      Sounds like a plan to reconnoiter.

    • I hope everyone realizes that the Fox News clip regarding Chicago was from last summer and the basis for it was a knee-jerk reaction by State Rep. Monique Davis asking the governor to consider National Guard help after learning of a horrific shooting.
      This was not a request from Chicago officials nor did Davis’ request go anywhere.

    • Good advice, worrisome, thanks for sharing your wisdom.

  12. Patriot Dave says:

    #7. IMO the stock market should continue to go up as long as the fed continues to feed it 84 billion a month. Barring other factors of course. When they even speak of easing off, the stock market plumets. the market responds to what the fed does, not the economy. That is how artificial it is. the fed cannot afford to ease off. they have gone down past the point of no return. I don’t know what the “trigger” will be or when. Our debt is already over 100% of GDP. 20% of world trade is now down in other currencies other than the US dollar. But the longer it is prolonged, the more time I have to prep. Each day is another day with a hot shower and a warm house.

  13. The Chicago story (video clip from last summer) is misleading in a number of ways. At the time of the story (Sept. 2013), Chicago area’s murder rate according to the FBI numbers released 16 Sept. was 7.1 per 100,000 residents. Definitely high but not the highest. Compare it to the following for the same time period:
    Jackson, MS – 13.4 per 100,000 residents
    Montgomery, AL – 13.9
    Mobile, AL – 11.1
    Birmingham, AL – 9.4
    Baton Rouge, LA – 11.8
    Memphis, TN – 11.5
    Just to point out a few.
    As for the effects of gun control, I suggest you research the rates during the ban and after the ban was repealed. Chicago IS NOT a good city to use when making a statement against controls on firearms. Speaking out against further controls is important – please be SURE of your arguments facts so it will actually carry some weight!

  14. Encourager says:

    #8, regarding Chicago’s crime wave. Why? What exactly is going on? Is it gang wars? Two or more gangs fighting for dominance? If so, why aren’t they being cracked down on? Is it South American or Mexican cartels fighting it out? Get to the bottom of what is going on before anything can be done on a permanent basis. How about a hotline for citizens to call in? How about citizens walking the streets, escorting kids to and from school? How about the citizens arising in outrage and taking their city back?

    If everyone runs and hides, criminals rule. And they know it. Any evil soul that targets children needs to be put down, permanently.

    And I agree, if only the criminals have guns, the criminals rule the city (not talking about law enforcement here…but wait, oh never mind…)
