Lots of strange and bizarre heavy-handed fascist things going on these days, so much so that we can only hit a few subjects which most of us never would have dreamed we’d see in our lifetimes.

For instance, the Department of Education buying shotguns. That’s right, boys and girls, shotguns, and it’s not for hunter education. These are Remington 870 12-guage pumps with the XS Ghost Ring sights and fourteen-inch barrels (illegal for schmuck citizens such as yourself) . And that’s a SWAT team entry weapon, not a standard riot gun.

Why does the Department of Education need SWAT entry guns? One reason could be to "keep up with the Jonses". The Internal Revenue Service purchased a bunch of SPAS 12 riot guns (also illegal for citizen scum such as you and I) and the Department of Agriculture has its own SWAT team. I kid you not. Or perhaps the DoED has just run out of Federal money confiscated from the citizens and borrowed from the Communists so it needs to conduct some smash-and-grab convenience store robberies to raise funds?

This country did just fine for a couple of hundred years with local communities running the schools and producing kids who could master the three R's. Then, in 1979, the former Worst President in American History, Jimmy "Senile Crackpot" Carter, signed into law the creation of the Federal Department of Education. At the time critics said it would be an unconstitutional and unnecessary bureaucratic intrusion into local affairs, but it would later prove to be an utterly incompetent unconstitutional bureaucratic intrusion that forces local schools to conform to their pogroms...or else. Thirty years later, with an annual budget now at 160 billion dollars, we have SAT scores that have declined from 937 in 1972 to 899 in 1992, and kids who can't make change for a dollar but know how to use at condom by age eight.

So let's give a big hand to the hard-working drones and hacks at the DoED. You might want to also consider sending voluntary donations to help Obama crony Arne Duncan create his special (I'm not making this up either) homosexual high schools.

Remember this when some politician tells you it’s a small program, a temporary program, or one that won’t get any bigger or usurp any new powers. Be especially wary when they say, "It will pay for itself."

Such as the (hopefully not) impending health care debacle, which will make the Department of Education look like a piker. Nancy “The Dunce” Pelosi thinks she has figured out a way, the Slaughter Rule, (so called because it slaughters the remaining shreds of due process and the Constitution) to ram this thing through the House of Representatives while avoiding a real vote on the actual bill as required by law. That President Obongo will sign this odious conglomerate if it gets within 100 meters of his desk is a no-brainer. Why are they so desperate to get this 2,000-page monstrosity jammed through by any means?

The answer surprisingly came from Speaker "Pandora" Pelosi, a rare instance of her actually uttering the truth in a big Freudian slip: “...we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, [emphasis added] away from the fog of the controversy.”

There is a glimmer of hope slowly flickering into life across the fruited plain as individual states continue to re-discover the 10th Amendment which, as apparently nobody in Congress or the Supreme Court knows, reads in short and simple English hardly open to interpretation: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." I've read through the whole Constitution repeatedly and still can't find the place where it says the federal government is authorized to give $2 billion a year of our tax money in "public aid" to Egypt or spend $6,435,000 for "wood utilization research". It does say they're supposed to deliver the mail, and we all know how that's turning out.

At any rate, Idaho Governor C.L. Otter, apparently no relation to the guy by that name in Animal House, has become the first state governor to sign into law a measure requiring the state attorney general to sue the federal government if residents are forced to buy health insurance.
Similar legislation is pending in 37 other states.

Unfortunately, nobody on Capital Hill seems to give a fat rat's ass about "...the States respectively, or...the people." We need to remind everyone of this at election time.
