Here’s a Halloween story for you. The judicial system in Texas has been breeding…

Wait for it…

Vampires!

I’m speaking of the recent development that Texas has adopted a policy of no-refusal every weekend, meaning that you are subject to forced blood test if an officer deems you intoxicated and you refuse a breathalyzer.

This is the ultimate intrusion into personal space and private property that has ever occurred. For refusing a breathalyzer, a needle will forcibly penetrate your skin, which has now become the ultimate line of demarcation between you and The State.

Subjects, your overlords demand that you give involuntary testimony in the form of a blood sample. It’s the ultimate truth serum! Except that it can be manipulated. Who trusts their government anymore? Do they really need this much control? Really? Without proof of a crime being committed a person is to be forced to testify, against his will, against himself! Before even a lawyer can be called? What happened to the Fifth Amendment? Fourth Amendment?

Do you feel like cattle yet?

Not boo, but moo.

The ACLU of Texas in 2009, had this to say:

The ACLU of Texas sees the Austin program as part of a disturbing trend occurring all over the state: Law enforcement use of search warrants to obtain blood from drunken driving suspects.  The Austin Police Department recently announced the first “no refusal” weekend as a pilot program which APD plans to repeat on other holiday weekends such as New Year’s Eve.

“Utilizing officers’ time to transport and force Texas drivers who refuse a Breathalyzer test to get their blood drawn isn’t good use of police resources,” said Russell. “Moreover, it does little to help build the much-needed trust between APD and the community because inevitably there will be stories of physical abuse with implementation of this program,” Russell added.

Police have said the program will work this way: Motorists who fail field sobriety tests will be arrested and taken to a mobile unit equipped to give Breathalyzer exams. If suspects refuse, they will be taken to Travis County Jail where a magistrate will be on duty to issue a warrant for blood tests, administered by force if necessary.

Chemical tests don’t lie, after all [sarc]. The problem is, they can be manipulated, as we’ve seen many times such as in the recent Houston crime lab fiasco, in San Francisco, Detroit, and most recently in North Carolina. to name just a few.

Given these abuses of power, how can we give them more? Do any of us actually think they need more power? Why should they have more cameras, more Matrix? More! More! More! our government screams they  need tools to protect us from ourselves.

Enough, I say. Enough!

If the State is that worried about stopping crime, control the freaking border! Oh, but wait. There’s no money in that, is there? Instead we have a racket of insurance and courts and lawyers with the MADD mothers being useful tools in the erosion of our rights. After all, who isn’t against drunk driving? If you protest the intrusion of the state you must be a law breaker or a kook!

We have met the enemy and it is a Vampire Government unrestrained by the people who gave it power.

Where is my wooden stake?

Goes to the blogger known as Editor, who operates the blog Spellchek. Editor has written a very good piece in which he asks us to compare liberty as it existed in 1776 to the “liberty” we experience in America today.

An excerpt:

By any measure, we now live under a shadow of what liberty once was. Everything is relative and we accept a much lower standard to still call us free. The Constitution is now called  outdated. We are told our society has evolved and that the principles outlined in the Constitution no longer apply to a modern society. All of these scenarios were pre-warned by the Founders. They wrote it down. They relayed it in speeches. This is why many are so incredulous that this is happening to our country today. The warnings were issued and history has shown us that the template has been followed to a tee. Of course, today we have an astounding wealth of information at our fingertips about the subject, yet it is still a debate.

How is it that we still debate the definition of liberty? Our government and educational system have done us all a grave disservice by ceasing to teach the principles upon which this country was founded. Yet there are still those who understand what true liberty means and the threats it must endure.

Liberty will never exist unmolested. The more free we are, the more some will want to take it away. It was never a matter of declaring it and just being done with it. So many of us have no concept of what true liberty is or ever was…

Editor then explores a short scenario of what it may take to regain the liberty as defined by the Founders in our Constitution. An excellent read indeed. But don’t take my word for it.

See for yourself. Spellchek: Liberty 1776 vs. 2010

The robot is in a funky mood today. Funk in a good, R & B kind-of way. Time to dig on some LeAnn Rimes & Joss Stone from CMT Crossroads. This is the full show. It will play the first song (which kicks butt, BTW). If you want the rest, you’ll have to install the Veoh player. I did. Nothing bad happened.

Oh, this could be considered a Rule 5 post as these two are definitely hot.

What say you, Smitty?

What is Rule 5 you ask? See here for excellent examples.

What is it with Joy? Has she none? First I hear of her calling Sharron Angle a B*I*T*C*H, then  Sharron kindly turns the other cheek, and chooses to send Mzzzz. Behar a bouquet of flowers!

What does Joy do? Does she have a change of heart? Does she laugh about what an arrogant little snob she was? No. She doubles down on the bitchitude. Not very lady like at all, really.

I’m sure Miss Angle will respond with the class she has already shown to Mzzz. Beehair. It could be that was Joy’s ploy all along. She wanted more flowers! Yea, that must be it.

Ahem. Joy, hon, you get more flies with honey, honey. But in your case, I’m not so sure.

Anyhoo, I’ve created a little game we can all play while we wait fir the next salvo. Rules are prescribed below. En-joy.

Enough for a roundup, unfortunately.

This election isn’t just about getting a GOP majority.  This is about showing the Democrats the massive suicidal error of their ways.  How?  By taking back seats from Democrats, of course.  But you also score a victory by taking districts  you should win by massive margins.

So yeah, if you want, you can let the promise of voter fraud fuck with your decision cycle.  Or you can do your best to overcome it.  The choice is yours.

Just remember this:  If it ain’t close, they can’t cheat.

Be The Wave.

BE.  THE.  WAVE.

AMEN Brother.

Three Beers Later – More ways to report election fraud: Report Prog Election Fraud, Citizens!

I missed donating to a candidate this past Friday and felt a bit of loss at not having made that weekly donation. So I was thankful that Instapundit gave me a method to relieve my stress. A Monday Money Bomb for Ruth McClung, the rocket scientist running in Arizona’s CD-7!

Hey, thanks for the heads-up, Mr. Reynolds. who also notes that , according to an article at Gateway Pundit, there may be some major voter fraud being attempted in Ruth’s district.

Ruth needs our help to defeat these leftist shenanigans.

Ruth McClung for Congress.

McClung Miracle Monday Money Bomb.

A note received in the comments section helps sum up this week’s Rule 5 quite nicely, if in a round-about, truncated,  babel fish sort of way.

…Quite cool! I help your view!…

Well, I’m not sure about you, Mr. Anonymous Commenter, but Miss Vergara sure helps my view.

More Sofia Vergara after the jump:

What do you think the Second Amendment is for? Stephen Broden was interviewed by CBS and appeared to back away from some earlier statements he made while stating a violent uprising “is not the first option,“ but it is ”on the table.”

Here’s a comment I left at Bonzai from the Right, who has the video:

I’m disappointed that Pastor Broden is backing away from his earlier statements. (Or is that a bit of clever video editing?) He was right! I’m also surprised that no-one is bringing up the fact that the threat of a violent uprising is exactly why we have a Second Amendment. Take violence off the table and you have surrendered. That being said, violence is and should be, a last resort, after all constitutional measures are exhausted.

I also think, on the other hand, Mark Adams may be correct in his prediction. Either way, it doesn’t bode well for civil society.

In the coming days, the left will do all they can to paint Pastor Broden as extreme. Knowing that, let me ask you, does this woman look like an extremist to you?

Are you looking for a leader?

Here we go again.

That paragon of economic virtue, Teresa Ghilarducci has surfaced once more to expound the benefits of the government taking over seizing confiscating stealing your 401k “for your own good.” I wrote about this little banshee back in May, after O’biden made a slip of the tongue with regard to their plans for redistributing your retirement nest egg. Now, it appears she has been gaining ground with her arguments because, as Doug Ross points out, it’s not off the table. In fact, your 401k may be part of the main course for the upcoming lame duck session of Congress.

Doug writes:

…I am not a conspiracy theorist. But I can put two and two together. Earlier this evening Papa B pointed me to an oozing secretion from the Puffington Roast, which markets the idea that 401(k) retirement savings accounts are evil and should be abolished.

He goes on to detail Mzzz. Ghilarducci’s well laid plans to confiscate your dough.

Guilarducci and the Democrats are advocating legalized theft of the juicy trillions of dollars Americans have saved in their retirement plans. Nationalizing those accounts would support massive new spending programs plus payoff the unions and crony capitalists looking for more bailouts at the “workers'” expense.

Please do read the whole thing. Then listen to the interview she gave with Mark Levin in October of 2008. It’s linked in the Doug Ross article but just in case, here is the link again.

I also find it worth noting that:

Mz. Ghilarducci was named by US News and World report as the Most Dangerous Woman in America back in 2008. It appears they may have been on to something.

And, Mz. Ghilarducci “at times” has been a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, a fact noted in their National Political Committee meeting minutes of Sept. 28-29, 2009 as being considered for Vice Chair. – Thanks Wikipidia.

Keep your eyes peeled, folks. They’re not done by a long shot.

But neither are we.

Not to be left out of the UFO controversy, here’s video of the El Paso UFO’s from 10/18.

CBS posted this video of a similar triangle pattern from New York on 10/13/10. They disabled the embedding so, here is a news story that shows some shorter length footage.

What do you think? Balloons? Aliens? Distraction? War of the Worlds?

Isn’t there a new space invaders movie coming out in a few weeks?

Color me skeptical.

UPDATE: UFO mystery solved? Maybe for New York, but what about El Paso? And how to explain the recurring triangle pattern? Three points are by definition, a triangle. Is it mere coincidence that the pattern repeats in El Paso?

Maybe Mythbusters should call in Obama for another episode.
