Cops to Law-Abiding Citizens: "Laws We Enforce on You Don't Apply to Us!"

Maryland's tax collectors, whom we call "cops" (sometimes "law enforcement officers"), believe that the laws they enforce on its own residents have no bearing on them.

Surprise, surprise, surprise...

Anthrax Was An Inside Government Job

Of course Anthrax was an inside government job. It was made in a taxpayer-funded government lab for the U.S. military. It may even be another neocon trick.

Here's the YouTube for it:

The Governator Speaks Out Against California Homeschooling Ban

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former bodybuilder and actor and now a Republican governor of the socialist state of California, has publicly expressed his outrage at the state's supreme court ruling against homeschooling. He said that he would fight the ruling and defend the rights of the parents to educate their children any way they see fit.

(03-07) 13:37 PST SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger denounced a state appeals court ruling that severely restricts homeschooling and promised Friday to change the law if necessary to guarantee that parents are able to educate their children at home.

'Every California child deserves a quality education, and parents should have the right to decide what's best for their children,' Schwarzenegger said in response to the ruling, which said children educated at home must be taught by a credentialed teacher.

'Parents should not be penalized for acting in the best interests of their children's education,' Schwarzenegger said. 'This outrageous ruling must be overturned by the courts, and if the courts don't protect parents' rights then, as elected officials, we will.'

State Education Secretary David Long, a Schwarzenegger appointee, said that meant the governor supported allowing parents without teaching credentials to educate their children.

'The governor sees this as a fundamental right of parental choice,' he said.

In the meantime, attorneys with Long's agency are poring over the decision to determine what to tell local school districts, the agencies responsible for pursuing truants, said Jack O'Connell, the state's superintendent of public instruction.

An estimated 166,000 children are homeschooled in California. Some are enrolled in independent study programs through school districts, charter schools or private schools. Others are taught at home or in programs that have no oversight by a public education agency or private school.

The ruling that prompted Schwarzenegger's anger was issued Feb. 28 by the Second District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles, but went unpublicized until this week. The court said all children ages 6 to 18 must attend public or private school full time until they graduate from high school or must be tutored by a credentialed teacher.

As much as I despise Ah-nold "The Governator" Schwarzenegger's statist/fascistic ideology and his support for his own party's hawkish foreign policy, at least he had the audacity to challenge the socialistic collectivists, statists, and social engineers who view our children as the property of the omnipotent state.
