Proposal to Make the Fed Truly Accountable~Bob Barr

A Proposal to Make the Fed Truly Accountable
By Bob Barr
as published on The

Last week's approval by the House Financial Services Committee of the Ron Paul-drafted legislation, the "Federal Reserve Transparency Act" (HR 1207) as part of Chairman Barney Frank's financial services "reform" bill, has caused much consternation on the part of the Federal Reserve. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke reportedly has been plying the Halls of Congress in an effort to convince lawmakers that opening the Fed to even the limited scrutiny HR 1207 mandates would cause the sky to fall. The reality is that bringing meaningful accountability to this powerful, 96-year old private bank than manages our public money supply, will require much heavier lifting by the Congress than a single piece of legislation opening the Fed's actions to limited audit by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

Since its creation in 1913, the Federal Reserve Bank and its seven Board members have enjoyed a degree of power and autonomy not shared by even the most secret of our foreign intelligence agencies. The president appoints all members of the Fed board, who are then subject to confirmation by the Senate. The chairman and vice-chairman are selected by the president from among the seven board members, and then subject to separate Senate confirmation. While not appointed to life tenure as are federal judges, the Fed board members serve lengthy, 14-year terms. Read More...

Sheriff Joe demonstrating to the world how to be a good Servant of the people

This Sheriff is doing more for USA and his jail inmates than all the country politicians and judges together.

He is basically teaching the inmates that there are serious consequences for evil deeds.

Basically he is teaching them (probably for the first time in their lives) that you cannot be a T-rex in society and then live happily after.

Among his prisoners released from jail, I am sure that relapse into legal offenses in his jail is much lower than in all other jails in the country.

He is to be commended highly for the good that he is doing to society and to the inmates under his custody.

You all remember Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona , who painted the jail cells pink and made the inmates wear pink prison garb. Well...?


Oh, there's MUCH more to know about Sheriff Joe!?

Maricopa County was spending approx. $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs.. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay.?

The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice daily. He now has prisoners who are experts in animal nutrition and behavior. They give great classes for anyone who'd like to adopt an animal.. He has literally taken stray dogs off the street, given them to the care of prisoners, and had them place in dog shows.?

The best part? His budget for the entire department is now under $3 million. Teresa and I adopted a Weimaraner from a Maricopa County shelter two years ago. He was neutered, and current on all shots, in great health, and even had a microchip inserted the day we got him Cost us $78.?

The prisoners get the benefit of about $0.28 an hour for working, but most would work for free, just to be out of their cells for the day. Most of his budget is for utilities, building maintenance, etc. He pays the prisoners out of the fees collected for adopted animals.?

I have long wondered when the rest of the country would take a look at the way he runs the jail system, and copy some of his ideas. He has a huge farm, donated to the county years ago, where inmates can work, and they grow most of their own fresh vegetables and food, doing all the work and harvesting by hand.?

He has a pretty good sized hog farm, which provides meat, and fertilizer. It fertilizes the Christmas tree nursery, where prisoners work, and you can buy a living Christmas tree for $6 - $8 for the Holidays, and plant it later We have six trees in our yard from the Prison.?

Yup, he was reelected last year with 83% of the vote.?
Now he's in trouble with the ACLU, again. He painted all his buses and vehicles with a mural that has a special hotline phone number painted on it, where you can call and report suspected illegal aliens Immigrations and Customs Enforcement wasn't doing enough in his eyes, so he had 40 deputies trained specifically for enforcing immigration laws, started up his hotline, and bought 4 new buses just for hauling folks back to the border. He's kind of a 'Git-R Dun' kind of Sheriff.?




Sheriff Joe Arpaio (In Arizona ) who created the ' Tent City Jail': He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.?

He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights Cut off all but 'G' movies.?

He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.?

Then He Started Chain Gangs For Women So He Wouldn't Get Sue d For Discrimination.?

He took away cable TV Until he found out there was A Federal Court Order that Required Cable TV For Jails So He Hooked Up The Cable TV Again?.?Only Let In The Disney Channel And The Weather Channel.?

When asked why the weather channel He Replied, So They Will Know How Hot It's Gonna Be While They Are Working ON My Chain Gangs.?

He Cut Off Coffee Since It Has Zero Nutritional Value.?

When the inmates complained, he told them, 'This Isn't The Ritz/Carlton...... If You Don't Like It, Don't Come Back.'?

More On The Arizona Sheriff:?

With Temperatures Being Even Hotter Than Usual In Phoenix (116 Degrees Just Set A New Record), the Associated Press Reports:?
About 2,000 Inmates Living In A Barbed-Wire-Surrounded Tent Encampment At The Maricopa County Jail Have Been Given Permission To Strip Down To Their Government-Issued Pink Boxer Shorts.?

On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 Degrees Inside The Week Before.?

Many Were Also Swathed In Wet, Pink Towels As Sweat Collected On Their Chests And Dripped Down To Their PINK SOCKS.?

'It Feels Like We Are In A Furnace,' Said James Zanzot, An Inmate Who Has Lived In The TENTS for 1 year. 'It's Inhumane.'?

Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic.. He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: 'It's 120 Degrees In Iraq And Our Soldiers Are Living In Tents Too, And They Have To Wear Full Battle Gear, But They Didn't Commit Any Crimes,So Shut Your Mouths!'?

Way To Go, Sheriff!?

Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.?

If you agree, pass this on. If not, just delete it.?

FairTax will end Socialism by ending taxation of basic needs~Tom Stark

We had quite a discussion going in the Icaucus group "Candidate Vetting Questions" on the FairTax. Here is the last post to which I have not thought of until now. It is like icing on the top of what we already know about free trade and our tax structure:
Tom Stark Comment by Tom Stark 21 minutes ago
...The key to the success of the Fair Tax is that by taxing consumption rather than production, savings and investments are encouraged. The rich that invest in new business or expansion of business are not taxed on the capital invested except as it relates to purchases of new equipment that will not be resold in the course of the business. They are not taxed on it when they earn it or their investments earn it. On the other hand, the worker is not taxed because he is working and the tax base of people paying the tax jumps from 150 million workers to 300 million inhabitants (not counting the 50 million visitors and another few odd million criminals who have to eat and clothe themselves. So 350+ million are now sharing the burden but ONLY on the amount they spend which is totally in their control. Not the government's. If they want to squirrel away their money, they don't pay taxes on it. If they want to be conspicuous spenders, they pay for it. The encouragement is toward saving and investment and prudent consumption. These three would go a long way to making our country more sensible in many ways. The fact that there is a pre-bated allowance to cover the bare necessities for every man, woman, and child in the country makes the playing field level between the "haves' and the "have nots" if you want to call it that. The fact remains that there will be fewer have nots when there is no longer an incentive to stay on the federal/state dole rather than go to work for a living where you get all the pay you earn in your paycheck.

There is no down-side to the Fair Tax. There is no need to put lipstick on an eagle (The Fair Tax). You can put it on a pig (The IRS) but it will never look like an eagle.

The Supreme Court states that the independent grand jury's purpose is not only to investigate possible criminal conduct, but to act as a
"protector of citizens against arbitrary and oppressive governmental action," and to perform its functions, the independent grand jury "deliberates in secret and may determine alone the course of its inquiry" (United States v. Calandra, 414 U.S. 338 (1974)). An independent grand jury is to "stand between the prosecutor and the accused," and to determine whether a charge is legitimate, or is "dictated by malice or personal ill will" (Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43 (1906)). The grand jury is to protect citizens against "hasty, malicious and oppressive persecution" and to insure that prosecutions are not "dictated by an intimidating power or by malice and personal ill will" (Wood v. Georgia, 370 U.S. 375 (1962)). The independent grand jury is described as "a body with powers of investigation and inquisition, the scope of whose inquiries is not to be limited narrowly by questions of propriety or forecasts of the probable result of the investigation" (Branzburg v. Hayes, 408 U.S. 665 (1972)). "Without thorough and effective investigation, the grand jury would be unable either to ferret out crimes deserving of prosecution, or to screen out charges not warranting prosecution." (U.S. v. Sells Engineering, 463 U.S. 418 (1983))

Kill the Bills. Do Health Reform Right

By Charles Krauthammer
WASHINGTON -- The United States has the best health care in the world -- but because of its inefficiencies, also the most expensive. The fundamental problem with the 2,074-page Senate health-care bill (as with its 2,014-page House counterpart) is that it wildly compounds the complexity by adding hundreds of new provisions, regulations, mandates, committees and other arbitrary bureaucratic inventions.
Worse, they are packed into a monstrous package without any regard to each other. The only thing linking these changes -- such as the 118 new boards, commissions and programs -- is political... (Read Full Article)
My comment:
Health Care is a State issue and the Federal Government has no power to Federally control it with the exception of inter-state commerce, not intra-State commerce.  Free trade within the USA border is what the Constitution mandates. 
The best way to cover everyone is for each State to mandate the HSA/IRA plan.  It will provide healthcare savings and retirement plan to replace both SSI and Medicare down the road, to bring the Federal Government back to Constitutional conduct.
What is the fault in our current system, other then the lack of competition, is the young people do not have a need for healthcare when weighing their budget items for priority.  What they fail to understand is that one day they will be old and in want of the service as a priority.  By a State mandating the HSA/IRA, the premiums will drop like a rock and near everyone will be able to afford the HSA portion, making for an opportunity to grow savings for the future, be it a house or old age, in the IRA portion.

Obama supporting terrorism in Honduras

Honduras is holding their Presidential Election on November 29th, 2009 to replace the former President Zelaya, who attempted a coup of the Constitutional term limit on Presidents by ignoring it(sound familiar?).  The support President Obama is one of a thug dictator, much like his cousin in Kenya did: using terrorism violence to alter the outcome of the election.  If the Honduras election has a low turnout, it will be Obama who is responsible.  God strengthen the Honduran people~

    Steve Forbes Has a Message for You on Card Check-Communism at it's finest


    Dear Concerned American:

    "I owe these unions."

    President Barack Obama couldn't have stated it any more clearly.

    And after spending a cool BILLION dollars to put their political cronies in positions of power in Washington, D.C., the union bosses couldn't agree more.

    They want PAYBACK.

    After all, Barack Obama and the rest of Big Labor's allies have already promised, "What Big Labor wants, Big Labor GETS!"

    That's why it's vital you sign the petition below urging Congressional leadership to OPPOSE the union bosses' Card Check Forced Unionism Bill -- and the rest of Big Labor's agenda -- IMMEDIATELY.

    You see, you and I may not have much time.

    Now that Al Franken has been seated in Minnesota, giving the Democrats a filibuster-proof majority if they all vote together, the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill is at the very top of Congress's agenda.

    That's why it's vital you act today!

    As you know, if "Card Check" passes, workers would no longer be able to vote for or against union boss "representation" in a secret ballot election.

    Instead, the union bosses would intimidate workers one-on-one -- or three-on-one -- into signing so-called "union authorization cards."

    And, of course, Big Labor has yet another ticking time bomb hidden in the "Card Check" legislation.

    If the union bosses can drag out negotiations with an employer past 90 days by making outrageous demands, Obama Administration bureaucrats will have the power to use this so-called "problem" as an excuse to write a new labor contract and force its terms and conditions of employment upon those workers.

    So you see, not only does Big Labor want to strip workers of the right to a secret ballot but also of the right to vote on their own contracts as well!

    That's why your immediate help is so vital.

    You see, Big Labor has another trick up its sleeve to make doubly sure "Card Check" is rammed into law.

    And that's a "Trojan Horse" version of the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill that's supposedly harmless if you believe the laughable stories coming from Big Labor's mouthpieces in the national media.

    But don't be fooled.

    The "Trojan Horse" version is every bit as damaging to American workers, jobs and our fragile economy.

    Plain and simple, this is nothing more than a ploy by Big Labor to trick fence-riding Senators into caving in and jumping on board.

    In fact, quoted in the People's Weekly World -- an overtly COMMUNIST publication -- the AFL-CIO's Director of Legislation said there would be NO CHANGES "that would undermine the basic thrust of the bill."

    That's why it's important that you sign this petition IMMEDIATELY.

    Should "Card Check" pass, this dangerous power grab would:

    *** Force millions of additional working Americans to pay union dues under the threat of losing their jobs, filling Big Labor coffers with hundreds of millions of forced-dues dollars;

    *** Dramatically increase the wasteful work rules, hate-the-boss propaganda, slowdowns and bitter strikes that shut down businesses and destroy jobs, ensuring that even more plants are closed and more jobs are shipped overseas or lost forever;

    *** Enable Big Labor to pump even more campaign cash into the coffers of its radical, tax and spend politicians like Barack Obama who, in turn, will look for even greater ways to increase the union bosses' forced-dues empire.

    That's why I'm counting on your help IMMEDIATELY.

    You see, a Capitol Hill aide was quoted recently admitting that Harry Reid is planning to move "[Card Check] to the floor and get it passed before anyone can mobilize against it."

    So we can't wait. We have to mobilize NOW.

    The good news is, the National Right to Work Committee has developed a massive plan to stop the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill dead in its tracks.

    Grassroots mail. Phone calls. Newspaper, radio and TV ads.

    But it's all VERY expensive -- especially since everything is "last minute."

    That's why it's vital you act TODAY!

    And that's why, in addition to your signed petition, I hope you'll agree to make a generous contribution to help stop the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill.

    After signing your petition, please send the Committee a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100 or $35.

    This is not a battle you and I can afford to lose.

    I'm convinced that with the Committee's plan to mobilize Americans against the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill, you and I can stop this bill -- and the rest of Big Labor's agenda -- dead in its tracks.

    But we don't have much time.

    Please sign this petition and make a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100 or $35 -- or whatever you can -- to help defeat Big Labor's Card Check Forced Unionism Bill.

    It's vital you act TODAY!


    Steve Forbes

    P.S.  Now that Al Franken has been seated in Minnesota, the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill could come up for a vote any day now.

    That's why there's not a moment to waste!

    Please sign this petition demanding Congressional leadership OPPOSE Big Labor's Card Check Forced Unionism Bill before it's too late.

    After signing your petition, please also make a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $35, or whatever you can afford, to the National Right to Work Committee -- IMMEDIATELY!

    Replace income and business taxes with the FairTax - the sales tax

    By Bay City Times staff

    November 23, 2009, 3:59PM
    Voice: R. George Dunn, Alger

    What can be done, being as the MI House is set on raising taxes or bust, is change how we tax so we can start lowering taxes. At the same time, we can give us a small increase to keep us at a level amount, with need to cut yet.
    • Make all services taxed by sales tax.
    • Eliminate sales tax on used products.
    • Move the Michigan Business Tax to the sales tax.
    • Either repeal Proposal A for education or move all homestead school tax on property to sales tax and make it a voucher system with freedom.
    • Put sales tax on food, but offset it for poverty by issuing credit or a check to every Michigan citizen on the poverty wage ceiling, in the amount of sales tax.
    • Make Health Savings Accounts/Individual Retirement Accounts a state mandate, not federal.
    • Resolve to the U.S. Congress our desire for the National FairTax Plan. 
    All this is needed to save us from what is coming with the dollar. We must center on being sovereign and what it will take to survive as a state, a nation of the republic.

    As you have witnessed all the benefit those businesses are getting in tax exemptions, it seems only fitting to make it so everyone so we can get jobs, jobs, jobs. By eliminating the MBT and income taxes, the production cost of Michigan Manufacturing will decrease that amount. The more people working the more people spending.

     Cutting out spending on a temporary basis is a must. You can put committees on emergency meetings only and stop them for a few years, like agriculture, DEQ, DNR, all of them.  If I need to know how to can tomatoes, I can find it online.

     I love Michigan. Don't make us have to leave. Act now.

    Imagine, if you will, someone suggesting to raise tax on income or business at a time when Michigan is already at the bottom of the employment scale in this Nation, at a time when the last thing we need is for more business to be driven out.  Rest asured, we are already a State that business will not come to, unless of course Lobbyists make it so you don't have a MBT.  But if you add an income tax increase onto the entrepenouirs wanting to set up shop somewhere in America, will they come here to a communist system of graduating taxation on income?  How about all the business without an exemption from the MBT?  Where can they apply? 

    Nope, the best way to go is to make Michigan the most business friendly State in the USA by adopting the Michigan FairTax Plan.
    For the changing of our Federal tax structure go to:
