These are the ones that need to be run off private property…
This is an attack against personal private property. Their property had not passed by the bureaucrat’s fingers. Obviously not allowed according to the actions shown.

I have posited that the destruction of freedom in this country is bureaucracy. These are the lifetime people who get to decide interpretations of laws, and then enforce them on a population having no recourse against their actions. The concept of having elected officials was that their actions would bring consequences from the voters in the terms of their office term and later having to live under the laws they designed. Bureaucracy removes this check on the government. Oh, and one last thing – the government having the most to do in the lives of the individuals was originally to be the one closest to them. The local government was the one with which they would have the greatest dealings. Does anyone even know the names of their local reps? How about the state reps? How about the Federal representative? I would posit that more know that last individual, and it’s because the feds are dealing with issues not even considered by our Founders. Would John Adams consider having a Kathleen Sibeleus? One individual who is able to state policies allowing people to live and die. (Do you remember the girl needing the lung transplant?) These agencies have way too much influence in our lives and here is an example of how this plays out.

Here is an interesting article with an assertion contained within that received a mention and pass. Let me copy it here:

Vaclav Havel once complained that there were whole libraries written about the transition from capitalism to socialism, but not a single book about a transition from socialism to capitalism. Nobody thought that could ever happen. We had given up fighting long ago–and then, the Soviet monster suddenly died a natural death. As Margaret Thatcher famously said, socialism dies when it runs out of other people’s money. So it did in Russia, despite the entire world’s efforts to save it.

I will posit that the books describing the passage from socialism are those of our Revolution and the cries of ‘no taxation without representation.” We have the history of William Bradford to draw on, where socialism was tried, found lacking, and personal property was assigned to develop a capitalistic system allowing flourishing of the colony. Our very country has a history of this, which is why our history is not taught any more. No need letting our progeny know that we were a Christian nation founded on the philosophies contained in the Bible with all of the responsibilities therein. It is more valuable to the ruling elites to maintain a drug addled, video playing nonproductive population than allow people to develop their own potentials which may be different than the elites would approve. So let’s just tell the kids that Clinton’s impeachment was simply a result of the Republicans fighting against him, not a violation of law that he committed. Does anyone remember perjury and obstruction of justice? Ideas that leaders need to obey the same laws as us are suppressed in this present culture. (The previous illustration was from kidinbox’s textbook in school.) Let’s force children to “donate” their school supplies to the class as a whole to inculcate socialism from the earliest point possible.
Removal of history is a method of control for which our present Marxists are well practiced. In 1984, it is noted that who controls the history, controls the population. This also applies in education.

I surfed some more and found this nugget on islam:

Ultimately, the distinction between “extremists” and “moderates” does not hold up to scrutiny. There are only Muslims, who can be divided into three groups: violent jihadists, stealth jihadists, and munafiqs. The latter may be peaceable and decent citizens, but as Roberts points out, marshaling reams of evidence from every quarter of the globe, when jihad comes to our part of town they cannot be relied on to oppose their barbarous co-religionists, to resist activation, to assemble in protests and demonstrations against the violence done in the name of their confession, to speak, write and march in solidarity with their targeted neighbors, or to reject outright the many passages in the Koran, Hadith and Sunnah that call for acts of blatant savagery. Time and time again, “the munafiqs acted on the side of jihad,” either by collaborating or by refusing to intervene. Such collusion seems plausible since, as Daniel Greenfield comments, “Jihad isn’t an act of violence; it’s an act of faith.”

I note that they place the concepts as “faith” whereas I consider them political philosophy. Show me a democrat who is willing to vote republican. I find it intriguing that he (Dennis Prager) uses religious beliefs as the basis for political voting being the flip side of my argument for the muslims. As an off hand thought, maybe politics and religious beliefs aren’t that separate.

I ran across a posting of a letter from Snowden. One thought I have had for a while came to mind. The governmental types said there was a whistleblower provision in the government he could have utilized. Considering he was in an area that could monitor behavior of others, did he perform his act simply because he knew the result of following protocol would produce no information for the public and land him in prison? Just asking. I remember hearing a recording he made in Hong Kong basically stating he feared assassination. That is assassination from our government. Let that realization sink in for a moment. I found the video. Pay attention to 6:30 and the few seconds after that point. We are there. How many are willing to give up comfort to retain freedom? I believe that is the gamble the Marxists in power are taking.

I remember asking a teacher in 4th grade why it was necessary to study history, civics, etc. She said “So if they ever try to take your rights away you will know and can do something about it.” My normalcy biased 9-year-old mind said in essence “Yeah, right – like that’s gonna happen.” I never imagined that I would live to see it come to pass. Now the kiddies are brainwashed with the value system of international socialism rather than educated in American History, History of Western Civilization (how ethnocentric don’t ya know), critical thinking, civics, etc. It is happening and they are blissfully unaware of what they are losing. Like hearing loss you don’t realize when you could no longer hear the wind, the birds, etc. The American Republic was not created to be a nation of the ignorant and indolent, so by the promulgation and rewarding of ignorance and indolence its destruction is assured.

I remember 31 cent gas, cookies and popcorn balls for halloween – homemade – and mom telling us to come home when she rang the bell. I also remember early in elementary school hearing about the melting pot, global cooling, and doing bomb drills in the hallways, in case there are those thinking the “old days” were all sweet and roses.

Here is a page on this “game” with interesting comments including one identified as from a police. My analysis is that this is a combination of lack of family combined with tribal tendencies.
I grew up with a family that enforced school. If I dared do something at school, there were their rules followed by mom and dad later to consider. There was this interesting concept – responsibility – that I was given. The lack of responsibility leads to the formation of socialism – if everyone is responsible, then no one is responsible. My further contention is that freedom and responsibility are opposite sides of the same coin. Remove one and you lose the other. The less responsible one is, the less free they are.
