The Founders Warned Us About Some One Some Time...Could Be Right About Now.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
It serves always to distract the public councils and feeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves with in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

FLAHR in, the name of a gold coin first made in Florence in the 1200's. The name comes from the Latin word for flower. The florin bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Saint John the Baptist on the other side. The first English florin was issued as a six-shilling gold coin in the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). A Silver English florin worth two shillings was first coined in 1849.
[The World Book Encyclopedia]

THERE IS A STORM BREWING. Part II

A powerful Democratic senator, pointing the finger at cable news for a politically toxic climate in Washington, unleashed a stunning tirade in which he expressed his desire to see the Federal Communication Commission shut down Fox News and MSNBC.
"There's a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to Fox and MSNBC, OUT. OFF. END. GOODBYE."
"It would be a big favor to political discourse; to our ability to do our work here in Congress; and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and, more importantly, in their future," said the chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce , Science, and Transportation.

West Virginia Senator Jay Rock e feller, don't know that Cable ain't regulated by the FCC.
BUT, It don't matter with these Kooks; they are tired of losing; and the American People are too dumb to know what politics is all about, and what this (POST) Constitutional Government is all about.
Yea-right. Keep on dreaming, Kooks.

 And then there is this!
"I like socialists. They're all great people."
-- Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH) confessing to Roll Call that he has privately referred to President Obama as a socialist since the 2008 campaign.

One other thing to watch for:
The FCC is going to use the old analog TV signals to broadcast WIFI. This may give them the loophole they need to control internet content.

Anyone who wants someone to shut up is a Fascist or a Communist, and has something to hide.
