"Homeland Security" Document Lists "Alternative Media" as Potential Terrorists
Source: PrisonPlanet.com Submitted: 05/04/2009
--In the same breath as radical Cuban Communists, the “decentralized terrorist movement,” “lone terrorists,” “racist skinheads” and the Mexican separatist movement, we find an entry for “alternative media,” alongside the blurb, “a term used to describe various information sources that provide a forum for interpretations of events and issues that differ radically from those presented in mass media products and outlets.”

That’s right folks - the federal government is training its enforcers that people who don’t believe everything they see on Fox News, CNN or read in the New York Times are to be treated as a “threat” and a potential violent domestic terrorist.

* The Downsize DC Army now stands at 25,004 -- that's a new increment of 1,000

* We grew by a net of 302 new members during April

* 710 people registered to use the Educate the Powerful System, which beat April of 2008 by 233

* We pounded Congress with 31,730 messages (in April)

We're constantly growing, despite our recent technical difficulties. But is it fast enough? Not yet. The feedback we got about growth goals seems to average out as follows . . .

* 100,000 members would probably give us a "critical mass" that would allow us to grow very rapidly

* And 1 million would probably give us sufficient strength to win major victories and start making our message heard by everyone, everywhere, every day

NBC Affiliate Meteorologist Rips MSNBC for Apocalyptic Global Warming Special
Source: BusinessandMedia.com Submitted: 04/28/2009
--Steffen rebutted claims of the MSNBC special saying that ice in the Antarctic has actually been expanding and that polar ice melting alone would not cause sea level to rise as depicted in the “Future Earth.”

“Keep in mind that if the Polar icecap (without Greenland) melted…it would hardly cause sea level to rise, because the icecap is currently displacing water in the Arctic Ocean,” Steffen wrote.

Steffen also pointed out, as many others have, the financial stake NBC Universal’s parent company General Electric (NYSE:GE) has invested in cap-and-trade becoming law.

--“Interesting note: In the fourth quarter of 2008 as GE/NBC stock fell 30 percent, GE spent $4.26 million on lobbying — that’s $46,304 each day, including weekends, Thanksgiving and Christmas,” Steffen wrote. “In 2008, the company spent a grand total of $18.66 million on lobbying. Reviewing their lobbying filings, GE’s specific lobbying issues included the ‘Climate Stewardship Act,’ ‘Electric Utility Cap and Trade Act,’ ‘Global Warming Reduction Act,’ ‘Federal Government Greenhouse Gas Registry Act,’ ‘Low Carbon Economy Act,’ and ‘Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act.’ Do you think this ‘big business’ is just concerned about the environment?”

Flu Kills The Torture Memos
Source: LegitGov.org Submitted: 04/26/2009
-- Scientists said the virus combines genetic material from pigs, birds and humans in a way researchers have not seen before. “We are very, very concerned,” World Health Organization spokesman Thomas Abraham said. “We have what appears to be a novel virus and it has spread from human to human,” he said. “It’s all hands on deck at the moment.”

Guess where the first swine flu outbreak occurred? That's right, Fort Dix, New Jersey, in 1976. Also likely created in a US Army lab. Thirteen soldiers died, leading the US government to force a questionable vaccine on the population -- backed by a legal liability escape clause mandated by and for the pharma-terrorists. Next, people started dying not from the flu -- but from the *vaccine.*
 Read full article »
UPDATE: Special thanks to a visitor who notified us the death toll from the 1976 swine flu at Fort Dix was only 1...not 13 as reported in the story at "legitgov.org."

...That it was only ONE soldier makes it that much MORE unacceptable that the government tried to roll out a mandatory nationwide inoculation program.

My original comment that appeared with the story appears in quotes below, followed by another update:

"...just something to distract the public from the torture story? ...not sure I'd buy that.

Something that our military created? Now THAT wouldn't surprise me a bit.

Something that was released for some other sinister purpose?...sadly, that wouldn't surprise me either.

Guess we'll have to wait and see how bad it gets and what kind of new "emergency powers" the government seizes (using this as a justification.)"

This brings up another angle to consider: The effect this crisis will have on government vaccine purchases.

The "normal flu" has killed nearly 14,000 people so far this year...but no panic. How many have died due to this new "outbreak?" Less than two hundred? Does the situation really warrant this level of hysteria or is it just another case of "hype for gain."
Harvard Conference: "Supporters of Capitalism Are Crazy"
Source: Mises.org Submitted: 04/25/2009
--In short, the conference was about this: “Why do people still think the interaction of free individuals is a superior economic system to one directed by Harvard Ph.D.s like us? I mean, apart from the failure of central planning in every case in which it's been tried, a failure so staggering that only a blockhead could miss it, why would people cling to the idea that being herded into a collective run by the experts isn't the best way to live?"

So by assuming from the outset the very thing that needs to be proven — namely, that the current state of the economy just occurred spontaneously, as the result of wicked market forces — our betters relieve themselves of the need to consider that central banking, a government-established institution, just might have had, you know, a little something to do with what happened.

The Judgment on Vaccines Is In? (Recommended)
Source: Jim Carrey Submitted: 04/23/2009
--I've also heard it said that no evidence of a link between vaccines and autism has ever been found. That statement is only true for the CDC, the AAP and the vaccine makers who've been ignoring mountains of scientific information and testimony. There's no evidence of the Lincoln Memorial if you look the other way and refuse to turn around. But if you care to look, it's really quite impressive. For a sample of vaccine injury evidence go to www.generationrescue.org/lincolnmemorial.html.

We have never argued that people shouldn't be immunized for the most serious threats including measles and polio, but surely there's a limit as to how many viruses and toxins can be introduced into the body of a small child. Veterinarians found out years ago that in many cases they were over-immunizing our pets, a syndrome they call Vaccinosis. It overwhelmed the immune system of the animals, causing myriad physical and neurological disorders. Sound familiar? If you can over-immunize a dog, is it so far out to assume that you can over-immunize a child? These forward thinking vets also decided to remove thimerosal from animal vaccines in 1992, and yet this substance, which is 49% mercury, is still in human vaccines. Don't our children deserve as much consideration as our pets?

The article above is very well-written.

My thoughts on this issue are pretty straight forward: Mercury is a DEADLY neurotoxin. So, of all the “preservatives” that vaccine manufacturers could have chosen, why would they choose mercury?

Are we really to believe there were no other ingredients on the face of the earth that could have been used instead? Put another way, if there WERE non-toxic ingredients available, WHY did they choose to inject you and your children with a known poison?

After presenting nearly an hour of evidence about the known dangers of mercury and its effect on "population growth," David Ayoub, M.D. asks the same question. It then leads him to an even more upsetting question: --Is there any evidence that mercury in our vaccines serves another purpose?

FBI workers accused of spying on dressing room

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Two FBI workers are accused of using surveillance equipment to spy on teenage girls as they undressed and tried on prom gowns at a charity event at a West Virginia mall.

The FBI employees have been charged with conspiracy and committing criminal invasion of privacy. They were working in an FBI satellite control room at the mall when they positioned a camera on temporary changing rooms and zoomed in for at least 90 minutes on girls dressing for the Cinderella Project fashion show, Marion County Prosecutor Pat Wilson said Monday.

-- Organizer Cynthia Woodyard said volunteers, donors and participants are angry. "I can't even begin to put words around what I consider an unspeakable act, the misuse of surveillance by a branch of our government in a place we felt so secure," she said. "Never in a million years would we have thought something like this would happen. We're in shock."

Welcome to “how it works” at the top. Ambitious politicians use their “influence” to do “favors” for special-interest groups that promise them “favors” in return.

In this case, we have a so-called “United States” representative agreeing to intervene on behalf of two people accused of spying against the United States. To me, that sounds like the representative is actually “representing” another country. And the scariest part is, it was allegedly done with the understanding this “representative” would be awarded a much higher position in our government for her efforts. (Where she could presumably do many more “favors” for the foreign interests that helped land her the new job.)

But it doesn’t end there…because this particular “US representative” had helped squash a story about the Bush administration’s ILLEGAL wiretapping program, a very grateful Attorney General (Alberto Gonzales) intervened on HER behalf to kill the investigation against her.

I understand that these videos make people squirm because it seems like the person who is “refusing to cooperate” is just being a jackass…that is not the case.

It is against the law for the government (without a warrant and/or without probable cause) to stop you and search you or your vehicle. If you cooperate, you are encouraging the government to break the law and you’re making it harder on those who expect the government to obey the law.

Nobody should be put in a position where they have to make the difficult decision to resist in this way…but they should be commended for doing so.

Is Secession 'Anti-American'?
Source: Lew Rockwell Submitted: 04/17/2009
In response to Texas Gov. Rick Perry's defense of states’ rights, State Rep. Jim Dunnam (D-Waco) says secession is anti-American. He even threw in a gratuitous race card to try to vilify the governor.

It should go without saying that the United States of America began with a series of thirteen secessions. The founding document of the American union is itself a collective "declaration of independence" that affirms unilateral secession to be part of our inalienable right of liberty. The U.S. Constitution (to which Rep. Dunnam has pledged an oath) affirms that the federal government's authority is both "enumerated" and "delegated," while the powers of the states are "reserved."

In other words, according to the Constitution, the states are the boss of the union, not the other way around. This is why leaders of the Texas state legislature, backed eloquently by Gov. Rick Perry, are reminding the bloated federal apparatus of its proper place as servant of the states. And Texas is not alone.

Kettling: Arrest everyone, ask questions later
Source: OpenDemocracy.com Submitted: 04/16/2009
--"kettling"- the practice by police of cordoning off city blocks at both ends and containing protestors for hours before arresting them for all intents and purposes, had its US debut five years ago during the 2004 Republican National Convention.

--The policy of mass arresting and detaining protestors was deliberate and premeditated, as revealed in NYPD documents released in 2007 under court order. The intention was to disrupt, discourage, and ultimately, disperse the protest presence from the streets by creating a climate of fear.

-- Independent filmmaker Mike Hall caught the whole experience on film and turned it into a short documentary, 16th Street Tactical. The imagery will be familiar to anyone who witnessed the G-20 protests. It shows the police cordoning off the block, refusing to let anyone leave, and then steadily mass-arresting everyone.

--In the end, the actions in New York amounted to little more than the criminalization of dissent. Everyone was a target, everyone was guilty before proven innocent, and everyone - even the innocent and the neutral - lost their rights and freedoms in one way or another.

Digg.com recently had a story demonizing the tea party movement. Beneath the story a lot of "diggers" posted comments attacking the "selfish people" who plan to participate in the protests. (Typical stuff like "look at Somalia if you want to know what our country would be like without taxes" and "you ungrateful traitors who don't want to pay your fair share should just leave" and "taxes are the price you pay to live in a civilized society" etc.)

The Digg article was written to elicit these types of responses...so, I posted the following to (hopefully) turn some attention back toward the real heart of the issue.

"How many of you here were FOR the first trillion dollar banker bailout? ...or the now 10 TRILLION more that you're on the hook for? Is that "the price you pay to live in society?" ...to be raped by well-connected criminals?

Did you know there was ZERO income tax in these United States prior to 1913. ...was America "uncivilized" then? Were we like Somalia?

And were the Colonists just a bunch of ungrateful traitors who didn't want to pay their "fair share" to the King of England? I suppose they should have just kept funding his abuses...he would have eventually seen things their way I'm sure.

And you too. Just keep telling yourself that your money is being used to benefit our country (instead of the criminals who OWN it) and everything will be just fine. They'll eventually stop abusing their power and breaking the law. (Just ask them...one more election cycle and they'll bring us the "change" we've begged for.)"
Obama and habeas corpus -- then and now
Source: Salon Submitted: 04/12/2009
--So that Barack Obama -- the one trying to convince Democrats to make him their nominee and then their President -- said that abducting people and imprisoning them without charges was (a) un-American; (b) tyrannical; (c) unnecessary to fight Terrorism; (d) a potent means for stoking anti-Americanism and fueling Terrorism; (e) a means of endangering captured American troops, Americans traveling abroad and Americans generally; and (f) a violent betrayal of core, centuries-old Western principles of justice. But today's Barack Obama, safely ensconced in the White House, fights tooth and nail to preserve his power to do exactly that.

I'm not searching for ways to criticize Obama. I wish I could be writing paeans celebrating the restoration of the Constitution and the rule of law. But these actions -- these contradictions between what he said and what he is doing, the embrace of the very powers that caused so much anger towards Bush/Cheney -- are so blatant, so transparent, so extreme, that the only way to avoid noticing them is to purposely shut your eyes as tightly as possible and resolve that you don't want to see it, or that you're so convinced of his intrinsic Goodness that you'll just believe that even when it seems like he's doing bad things, he must really be doing them for the Good.

20/20's anti-gun special "If I only had a gun"

The ABC piece opens with a simulated school shooting.

Armed students are "tested" against a "shooter" in the classroom to see how they'd do, but the scenario shown is totally unrealistic.

He bursts into a room full of 20 people, seems to know exactly which student is armed, and "takes him out" with beautifully placed head and chest shots within seconds…)

After a few of these exercises (different students, same basic result) the show implies that unless you can perform at the same level as the shooter they have shown, having a gun will do you absolutely no good.

Even if their demonstration wasn't a farce, their claim would still be laughable.

Have all the murderers who’ve attacked schools, malls and churches possessed the skills of ABC's shooter? If not, then the show's assertion is demonstrably false. (That is, the untrained murderers have had no problem “shooting people" despite their "ordinary skills" with a gun.) If these criminals can hit their targets, it is dishonest to suggest their victims can't do the same.

How banking insiders can "Game" the Government's banking plan
Source: Huffington Post Submitted: 04/08/2009
Consider a toxic asset held by Citibank with a face value of $1 million, but with zero probability of any payout and therefore with a zero market value. An outside bidder would not pay anything for such an asset.

Suppose, however, that Citibank itself sets up a Citibank Public-Private Investment Fund (CPPIF) under the Geithner-Summers plan. The CPPIF will bid the full face value of $1 million for the worthless asset, because it can borrow $850K from the FDIC, and get $75K from the Treasury, to make the purchase! Citibank will only have to put in $75K of the total.

Citibank thereby receives $1 million for the worthless asset, while the CPPIF (created by Citibank) ends up with an utterly worthless asset against $850K in debt to the FDIC. The CPPIF therefore quietly declares bankruptcy, while Citibank walks away with a cool $1 million.

Obama administration says government abuses are 'state secrets' beyond judicial scrutiny

--The government is effectively arguing that it can act with impunity because the evidence that the government has misbehaved is a secret that can't be used to seek to demonstrate violations of the law or the Constitution and to seek redress.

Did the feds abuse your rights? Too bad, they say, because you won't be allowed to prove it in court.

That's a remarkably pernicious argument, since it effectively puts government action beyond scrutiny.

Scientists find active ’super-thermite’ in WTC dust
Source: Raw Story Submitted: 04/05/2009
A team of scientists claim to have unearthed startling data from dust and debris gathered in the days and weeks after the World Trade Center towers collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001.

In a study published by the Open Chemical Physics Journal -- a peer-reviewed, scientific publication -- Steven E. Jones and Niels Harrit level a stark allegation: that within the dust and rubble of the World Trade Center towers lays evidence of "a highly engineered explosive," contrary to all federal studies of the collapses.

--"This finding really goes beyond anything that has previously been shown," said Jones in a media advisory. "We had to use sophisticated tools to analyze the dust because this isn't just a typical explosive, RDX or CD4 or something -- this is a highly engineered material not readily available to just anyone."

New World Order: Still A Conspiracy Theory? (Recommended)
Source: Prison Planet Submitted: 04/03/2009
--Wikipedia attempts to make the differentiation by claiming that the new world order in the context of a sinister, undemocratic, and ultimately totalitarian political agenda, is a characterization embraced only by paranoid conspiracy theorists.

--The new world order is totalitarian by its very nature - shifting power away from sovereign countries to global institutions which have no accountability to the general public whatsoever, and through which the public has no voice or influence. That cannot be defined as anything else but undemocratic. There is no such thing as a “benign” new world order.

G-20 Shapes New World Order With Lesser Role for U.S., Markets
Source: Bloomberg Submitted: 04/02/2009
April 3 (Bloomberg) -- Global leaders took their biggest steps yet toward a new world order that’s less U.S.-centric with a more heavily regulated financial industry and a greater role for international institutions and emerging markets.

At the end of a summit in London, policy makers from the Group of 20 yesterday delivered a regulatory blueprint that French President Nicholas Sarkozy said turned the page on the Anglo-Saxon model of free markets by placing stricter limits on hedge funds and other financiers. The leaders also pledged to triple the resources of the International Monetary Fund and to hand China and other developing economies a greater say in the management of the world economy.

The success of drug decriminalization in Portugal
Source: Salon Submitted: 03/29/2009
--There is clearly a growing recognition around the world and even in the U.S. that, strictly on empirical grounds, criminalization approaches to drug usage and, especially, the "War on Drugs," are abject failures, because they worsen the exact problems they are ostensibly intended to address. "Strictly on empirical grounds" means excluding from the assessment: (a) ideological questions regarding the legitimacy of imprisoning adults for consuming drugs they choose to consume; (b) the evisceration of Constitutional and civil liberties wrought by drug criminalization; and (c) the extraordinary sums of money devoted to the War on Drugs both domestically and internationally.  Read full article »
Russia backs return to Gold Standard to solve financial crisis
Source: Telegraph Submitted: 03/29/2009
Arkady Dvorkevich, the Kremlin's chief economic adviser, said Russia would favour the inclusion of gold bullion in the basket-weighting of a new world currency based on Special Drawing Rights issued by the International Monetary Fund.

--The Gold Standard was the anchor of world finance in the 19th Century but began breaking down during the First World War as governments engaged in unprecedented spending. It collapsed in the 1930s when the British Empire, the US, and France all abandoned their parities.

It was revived as part of fixed dollar system until US inflation caused by the Vietnam War and "Great Society" social spending forced President Richard Nixon to close the gold window in 1971.

China executing prisoners in "death vans" and selling organs on black market
Source: UK Daily Mail Submitted: 03/28/2009
--The number of executions is expected to rise to a staggering 10,000 people this year (not an impossible figure given that at least 68 crimes - including tax evasion and fraud - are punishable by death in China).

--According to undercover investigations by human rights' groups, the police, judiciary and doctors are all involved in making millions from China's huge trade in human body parts.

Inside each 'death van' there is a dedicated team of doctors to 'harvest' the organs of the deceased. The injections leave the body intact and in pristine condition for such lucrative work.

On "Sobriety"
Source: HowToStopDrinking.org Submitted: 03/28/2009
On March 25th 1991 I was charged with “driving under the influence.” It wasn’t my first, second, or third DUI…it was my fourth. As a result, I was looking at up to 2 years in jail.

Three nights later, drunk out of my mind, I decided I didn’t like “No Parking” signs. So, I spent a good amount of time driving up on people’s tree lawns to knock them over with my car. If I would have been caught, I would have surely been charged with my fifth DUI (not to mention reckless operation, destruction of state property, etc.) That final night of drunken stupidity took place 18 years ago today. I haven’t had a drink since.

For those interested in the full story, I’ve decided to go ahead and post this “non-political” article. In it, I explain how I eliminated both drugs and alcohol from my life. Just so you know: I have never accepted the “disease theory” of substance abuse. Nor have I used the “AA / 12-step approach” to enjoy all these years of sobriety. In fact, I developed StopDrinking.com (over 10 years ago) for those looking for something else. (I changed the site to "HowToStopDrinking.org" in 2010)

Side note: Some might wonder why I regularly post stories that are critical of the so-called “War on Drugs.” Here is the simple answer: Just because I didn’t like the way drugs and alcohol affected ME and MY life doesn’t give me the right (or desire) to tell other people how to live.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s none of the government’s business what an adult does so long as that adult is not violating the rights of others. The “War on Drugs” is a terrible waste of resources, it does more harm than good, and it is an unacceptable violation of the individual’s right to live their OWN life and make their own choices. –Hope that clears things up.
WILL CONGRESS WIPE OUT HOME GARDENS, GROWERS MARKETS?
Source: News with Views Submitted: 03/26/2009
--“This bill will not just sweep up commercial food operations,” warns Tom DeWeese, who heads the American Policy Center in Virginia, in a Sledgehammer Alert, “[It] will subject hobby gardeners, home canners, anyone with a few chickens, or anyone who ‘holds, stores, or transports food’ … to registration, extensive management, and inspection by a huge new bureaucracy, the Food Safety Administration, even if the food items will only be consumed personally.”

“The truly chilling language lays out civil and criminal penalties of up to $1 million per day, per infraction, and imprisonment of five or 10 years, or both, depending how serious the violation(s),” De Weese adds, characterizing the bill as “over-the-top in its overreach.”

Dissecting yet another scam
Source: Downsize DC Submitted: 03/25/2009
President Obama unveiled the latest government plan for buying up "toxic" assets on Monday, and the stock market soared by nearly 500 points. It's not hard to see why. Investors get the reward, while taxpayers get the risk.

Here's what you can say in your personal comments. This latest "toxic" asset bailout is yet another scam, because:

For every $100 used to buy "toxic" assets, private investors will put up only $7, while taxpayers will put in a matching $7 plus $86 in loans. These are no recourse loans. In other words, if a "toxic" asset doesn't pay off, taxpayers will eat the loss -- potentially $93 out of every $100 invested.

Investors get a chance to profit, while most of the potential losses will be socialized -- paid by you.

Withdraw your consent! And ask your friends to do the same.

Senate Rubber Stamps National Enslavement Bill

--In an interview with Ben Smith of the New York Daily News, Emanuel outlined the agenda for military-style training, essentially a domestic draft, aimed at preparing Americans for a chemical or biological terrorist attack.

Asked by Smith about the universal service plan and whether people would have to live in military barracks, Emanuel laughed before responding, “We’re going to have universal civil defense training, somewhere between the ages of 18 to 25 you will do three months of training….but there can be nothing wrong with all Americans having a joint similar experience of what we call civil defense training or civil service in service of the country, in preparation, which will give people a sense of what it means to be an American.”

“It will be a common experience and we will be prepared, God forbid, God forbid that there is a chemical hit, another terrorist act or natural disaster becoming more frequent - there’ll be a body of citizens who are ready and capable and trained - that’s all you have to think about,” said Emanuel before smugly declaring, “We’re all here for you OK? It’s a circle of love.”

Paul, Baldwin, Barr Send Letter Demanding Withdrawal of MIAC Report

Last week on the Alex Jones Show, former presidential candidate and Baptist minister Chuck Baldwin said he would co-author with former presidential candidate and House member Ron Paul and former federal prosecutor, former member of the United States House of Representatives and presidential candidate Bob Barr a letter (see PDF) to the Governor of Missouri, Jeremiah Nixon, protesting the Missouri Information Analysis Center’s document designating Baldwin and his co-authors as terrorists.

Baldwin, Paul, and Barr “respectfully demand” the document in question “be immediately removed from any and all websites associated with or maintained by the state of Missouri or any agency thereof, including the MIAC.” In addition, they demand “said document no longer be circulated by the state of Missouri” and the state repudiate its references to Baldwin, Paul, and Barr.

The Raid on Mayor Cheye Calvo's Home
Source: MakeMarylandGreat.com Submitted: 03/22/2009
Berwyn Heights Mayor Cheye Calvo’s mother-in-law, Georgia Porter, was stirring her spaghetti sauce when suddenly she saw armed, masked men in black swarming across their backyard. One of the men saw her and pointed his high-powered assault weapon directly at her through the window. She screamed. Suddenly the front door shattered, and men in black burst into the house.

Payton, one of the family’s two black Labrador Retrievers, was lying stretched out on the living room floor. As he turned his head towards the door, the terrified Georgia watched as the men shot him in the face multiple times. The other family dog, Chase, ran into the dining room in an attempt to escape from the screaming men, but they rushed the dining room from all directions and shot him also.

--The Prince George’s County Police Department had intercepted a package addressed to Trinity containing 32 pounds of marijuana and delivered it to the house earlier that evening. But despite it being common knowledge among narcotics officers that criminals were sending drugs to innocent people in the hopes of grabbing the packages before they got home, nobody bothered to do even the most basic background research into the Calvo’s before invading their house.

First Black President to Reinstate Slavery? (Recommended)

When tyrants want to take the next big step towards totalitarianism, they usually toss out some "trial balloons," both to see how people react and to begin desensitizing people to the new fascist agenda. If they're smart, they first propose a big leap toward totalitarianism, and then cut it back to a small step. By contrast, the peasants will not only be pleased with the smaller step, but will be trained to think that the larger step is at least debatably a good idea.

The American tyrants, and those in other countries, have done this over and over again with "gun control" (peasant disarmament), taxation, regulation, and so on. They suggest something startlingly bad, then scale it back to only mildly obnoxious, and pass it. And they keep doing it over and over again, until they've imposed all sorts of things that in the past seemed outrageous. And since hardly anyone thinks from PRINCIPLE, it works.
