    https://tech.slashdot.org/story/17/02/27/0539232/questioning-the-privacy-policies-of-data-collecting-cars Nothing wrong, nothing to hide, right? Right? Well, here is the trouble with that. When it comes down to Corporate Profits vs your Privacy Rights, Im sure that Board Members will decide that your Privacy Rights lose damn near every single time. Why? They now have a financial incentive to find something wrong. And they will always leave you more than enough rope to hang yourself with so they can blame you. That Blame becomes a Rationalization for them to take more money from you while providing you with no commensurate compensation for the increase in prices for the goods and services you pay for. Would you not be pissed to find out that at the end of your life, their data collection policies enabled them to take hundreds of thousands of dollars more from you? Maybe not all to one or two companies, but the same way as your prices are typically different than your neighbors when shopping online. Beware Death by a Thousand Paper Cuts.

    I think that Rights need to be enumerated specifically, even if not granted by any form of government. A Bill of Rights itself will not protect or stop a government who is completely intent on Tyranny, but is useful when smaller factions of the government want to infringe upon specific rights when other parts of the government are at least semi-functional. Once a government is entirely corrupted, any form of a Bill of Rights is practically useless as there is no one left in government to enforce consequences for violations of the Rights of the People. Sadly, I think that is very close to where we stand today. Most of our politicians get into politics with the intention of exploiting the powers of the offices that they hold to subvert most protections of the law in order to achieve personal gain. Some are honest, but those who who can be bought, manipulated, or controlled seem to have financial backing that allows them to crush any voted competition at every level. It was once said the best business to be in is the business of government. With that, you can pass laws that prohibit competition in order to entrench a status quo. Local laws can be passed that requires any new competition to apply for licenses while retroactively granting licenses to those already established. This prevention of competition prevents financial mobility upwards for people looking to start new businesses. Another thing that happens is our Bill of Rights is quite broad in its definitions, while the laws that are passed are very very specific. Think of Free Speech vs Hate Speech. Hate Speech Laws tend to be rather specific by identifying specific words or phrases which could be construed either in or out of context as Hate Speech. For example, one could talk about Muslims negatively in general, but if any speaker makes specific statements about referring to all Muslims as Radical Insurgents, it is suddenly prohibited by law. That is what the Chinese referred to as "Death By A Thousand Cuts", or the slow but cumulative incrementalization of passing laws that infringe upon Free Speech. Every year, we have hundreds of thousands of new laws that are passed that slowly but cumulatively infringe upon our rights. There are several ways to actively destroy Enumerated Rights. First is Passive. Ignore any infringements. Next is Active. Pass legislation that repeals Rights "granted". Things like "Constitution is SUSPENDED during times of Martial Law." Mistake there is Rights do NOT come from government. Leaders can either choose to respect our Rights, or to Ignore them, but do NOT have the power to repeal Rights that they did not grant. Third is Cumulative Subversion, which is the slow cumulative nature of most laws against individuals. Lastly, there is a BIG problem with Exchange of Definition. The two terms "Rights" and "Permissions" are literal polar opposites. Rights are Inherit, Permissions are Granted. Rights can NOT be summarily revoked, only ignored. Permissions can be revoked. Rights you have by default. Permissions by default are not granted until specific conditions are met. Rights recognize you as being Self Soverign, the highest authority unto your self above all other human beings. Permissions do NOT recognize you as Soverign. Now, if you look at the application of the words "Rights" and "Permissions" in most legalese today, you'll see what I see; authors tending to use the word "Right" or "Rights" when the word "Permission" should have been used. Such as "we hereby grant you the right to observe the material contained herein, but do not grant you the right to transfer said right to any other party". And for the record, LICENSE means Permission. Again, Rights are NOT granted, they are INHERIT with the human condition as they do not come from other men.

    A hot sauna. If you don't have a sauna available, blowing hot air from a hair dryer on and around the aching ear can provide some relief. It opens up the blood flow, increases circulation and helps drain away any built up fluid, removing the stuffed ear feeling.

    Virtually all reasonable laws are obeyed, not because they are law, but because reasonable people would do that anyway. If you obey a law simply because it is the law, that’s a pretty likely sign that it shouldn’t be a law.

    Seems like a good place to also share some Bastiat. Bastiat, Claude Frederic –All you have to do, is to see whether the law takes from some what belongs to them in order to give it to others to whom it does not belong. We must see whether the law performs, for the profit of one citizen and to the detriment of others, an act which that citizen could not perform himself without being guilty of a crime. Repeal such a law without delay. … f you don’t take care, what begins by being an exception tends to become general, to multiply itself, and to develop into a veritable system. If philanthropy is not voluntary, it destroys liberty and justice. The law can give nothing that has not first been taken from its owner.

    So the website constantly critical of big Pharma, FDA, excessive vaccines, and the pill popping medical industry culture, gets banned from the Google ad network because the Google ministry of truth decides the information critical of the drug-medico industry does not fit their approved "truth". Then Google censors the entire domain from its search engine for having an alternative ad network script on a tiny handful of blogs on a sub-domain, and Google wants us to believe its has nothing to do with content when its Google Ministry of Truth censorship brigade is what precipitated the expulsion of the alternative medicine site from its ad network based upon content to begin with. Yeah. Riiight.

    The Ignorant Nikki Haley Doubles Down on Stupidity. Now Dizzy Nikki is calling for sanctions against Assad for the already disproven "he used gas on his own people" false pretext. However it was proven and even Washington acknowledges that Washington backed "moderate" rebels used toxic gas supplied via Turkey on people, and that Saudi "Salafi" Arabia is using white phosphorus on Yemenis as well as bombing Yemeni civilians for years. But where is Ditzy Nikki Haley on the proven and acknowledged actions? Is she calling for sanctions against the Washington backed "moderate" al Qaeda terrorists, or the Wahhabist Saudi regime? No, she would rather re-raise already disproven propaganda to initiate more war and sanctions on false pretenses, while completely ignoring atrocities. From the Ron Paul Institute:Each time she opens her mouth she spews ... rather the boot-in-the-face know-nothingness that we have grown accustomed to in recent years. In the latest "Haley Alert," the Ambassador is furious over a Russia-threatened veto of a UN Security Council resolution ... to impose new sanctions on the Syrian government over unproven allegations that Syria used chemical weapons against its own population. Yes, under Ambassador Haley we have entered a time machine back to 2013, where the US is ready to deploy its entire diplomatic (and perhaps military) arsenal against the one government in the Middle East actually fighting President Trump's sworn enemies: ISIS and al-Qaeda. …

    Admiral Chester Nimitz, Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet, sent out the following public statement: “The atomic bomb played no decisive part, from a purely military standpoint, in the defeat of Japan." General (and later president) Dwight Eisenhower – then Supreme Commander of all Allied Forces, and the officer who created most of America’s WWII military plans for Europe and Japan – said, "The Japanese were ready to surrender and it wasn’t necessary to hit them with that awful thing.""Japan was already defeated and that dropping the bomb was completely unnecessary, and secondly because I thought that our country should avoid shocking world opinion by the use of a weapon whose employment was, I thought, no longer mandatory as a measure to save American lives. It was my belief that Japan was, at that very moment, seeking some way to surrender with a minimum loss of ‘face’. General Curtis LeMay, the tough cigar-smoking Army Air Force “hawk,” stated publicly shortly before the nuclear bombs were dropped on Japan, "The war would have been over in two weeks. . . . The atomic bomb had nothing to do with the end of the war at all." The Vice Chairman of the U.S. Bombing Survey Paul Nitze wrote (pg. 36-37, 44-45), " concluded that even without the atomic bomb, Japan was likely to surrender in a matter of months. My own view was that Japan would capitulate by November 1945. ... Even without the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it seemed highly unlikely, given what we found to have been the mood of the Japanese government, that a U.S. invasion of the islands would have been necessary." Deputy Director of the Office of Naval Intelligence Ellis Zacharias, "Just when the Japanese were ready to capitulate, we went ahead and introduced to the world the most devastating weapon it had ever seen and, in effect, gave the go-ahead to Russia to swarm over Eastern Asia. ... I submit that it was the wrong decision. It was wrong on strategic grounds. And it was wrong on humanitarian grounds."
