Save the Internet: FCC Net Neutrality rules worst example of government intervention… ever & More

(Video, Source: Fox) – Of all the government interventions by the Obama administration, the plan released Thursday by the Federal Communications Commission to regulate the Internet is the worst.

Yes, ObamaCare is massive and is clogging one-sixth of the economy. But even before ObamaCare, government had a huge imprint on the health care industry with Medicaid and Medicare. Also, regulations on pharmaceutical and insurance industries led to their energies being focused as much on pleasing government bureaucracies as curing illnesses.

Indiana may allow ‘baby boxes’ for surrendering newborns

WEB Notes: This is a disgusting and terrible idea in my opinion. ‘Hey public, place your unwanted baby into a box for someone else to take care of.’ Hospitals, Police Stations and Fire stations already take unwanted babies which is sad enough. We do not need an after hours drop box.

(Source: Alt Market) – The Fourth Amendment was designed to stand between us and arbitrary governmental authority. For all practical purposes, that shield has been shattered, leaving our liberty and personal integrity subject to the whim of every cop on the beat, trooper on the highway and jail official.

Our freedoms—especially the Fourth Amendment—are being choked out by a prevailing view among government bureaucrats that they have the right to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation.
