I was checking out the weather this morning to see where the current snowband was located. We’re in an area that it changes very rapidly from sunshine to snow. You can run into heavy squalls one minute, and bright sunshine a mile up the road. As I was browsing a very interesting story caught my eye. Apparently the lovely state of NY has written some new laws. It’s now illegal to have license plate frames that obstruct your plate. Imagine being pulled over, minding your business, obeying the speed limit and the officer asks for your registration and license, then proceeds to tell you he pulled you over because of your license plate frame? Or also, how about your air freshener hanging from your rear view mirror, that’s another no-no. Or even a satellite radio attached the windshield inside your car — they can all be considered an obstruction of your view.

This is a blatant attempt of invasion of privacy, and a clear indication that the state of NY is making it easier and easier for NY State Police to have an excuse to pull you over, find something else to investigate, maybe you’ll end up in the slammer for something really stupid.

This is just the beginning folks, time to get serious about our rights before we have NONE!

World Net Daily has published a story regarding Obama’s plan to “require” students to serve their community in middle and high school. Creating a youth corp seems to be one of his great ideas to get everyone involved to “serve” their nation to preserve the “American dream”.

Perhaps there is reason to be concerned about this, perhaps not. But the key word here is “required”. The 12th amendment to the constitution states:

Section 1: Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

One would hope that this would be enforced by the constitution but Obama has stated in the past that he feels the constitution stands in the way of the “change” he is interested in.

Personally I think there is cause for concern. What would a “civilian security force” do? Obama has also stated it would be just as powerful and well funded as the U.S. military! Sounds like the makings of a police state.
