    Default State of the Union Address for 2013

    The Real State of the Union for February 12, 2013



    by John Galt
    February 12, 2013 22:05 ET


    Instead of the traditional Republicon versus Demoliar debate which ensues for theatrics on cable news, I thought a more prudent analysis of the State of the Union after Obama’s first term is much more appropriate and realistic as to where our nation is going in the future. Thus I present the following commentary on the State of the Union for the United States of America by analyzing our Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution and their status as of tonight.



    1st Amendment:

    Condition: Critical


    With the repeal of the Zorinsky Amendment to the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, odds are it is only a matter of time when a national emergency is created or declared leaving the government an alleged no choice but to force mainstream and internet broadcaster to either abide by the dictates of the Federal Government regarding content and carrying the broadcasting arm of the Feds or be shut down. The newspapers are already in line and willing to force content on users without regard to accuracy or bias and television, be it cable or broadcast, is no longer a vast wasteland but a willing servant to the political and corporate elites. The silencing of the masses must occur via the seizure of mainstream radio broadcasting and the internet and with the current regime in power, there is little doubt that it is a matter of when, not if.

    2nd Amendment:

    Condition: Critical


    The assault on the right to keep and bear arms started in 2008 but has accelerated to a point where formerly mainstream pundits on conservative commentators have now openly stated that the threat of gun confiscation is now a real possibility. Law abiding citizens are now being called baby killers and mass murders for criminal events that have no relation to the reality of John Q. Public buying a pistol or rifle to protect their family. Wild ideas are being tossed up into the air randomly from tax credits for turning in firearms to mandatory liability insurance for purchasing firearms. There will be a conflict in the future which brings this issue to a full resolution, sadly it appears to be following the path of other authoritarian regimes throughout history.


    3rd Amendment:

    Condition: Stable


    While there is no consideration or threat of quartering troops in the homes of citizens at this time, do not be surprised if this regime concocts a plan to accelerate foreclosures, be they legal or not, to provide compensation to soldiers as they return or retire with an adequate number of years of service. The administration will have to consider something after the upcoming cut in pay and benefits is implemented and conditions deteriorate for the servicemen and women worldwide.

    4th Amendment:

    Condition: Dead


    There is very little chance that this portion of the Constitution will be saved in anyone’s lifetime who is over forty years of age.

    5th Amendment:
    Condition: Dead


    Excerpt from the 5th Amendment:


    … nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

    The reality? Without due process a citizen’s own private thoughts NOT broadcast via the internet, but possibly intercepted via PRIVATE telephone conversations can and are being used to prosecute Americans in violation of this Amendment and the 4th. Property is seized via roadblocks, checkpoints, and via Eminent Domain without due process nor compensation. Yet the masses remain silent as the “War on Terror” continues its horrific track record as a war on freedom killing few terrorists on American soil.

    6th Amendment:

    Condition: Dead


    The end of America is nigh when a President can order the interception of all personal data without a warrant and prosecuted without ever meeting his or hers accusers. The secret juries, unlawful arrests, use of emergency powers to detain citizens and deny them a speedy trial along with facing or using witnesses is only further proof that the current State of our Nation is critical heading towards dictatorship.


    7th Amendment:

    Condition: Dead


    Truly a sad day when some small awards are won by the common man only to be defied by courts sold to the highest bidder. There are now cases reported on an almost daily basis where mega-corporations working with the political elites defeat legitimate civil court cases making a mockery of this Amendment. If anyone doubts this idea, review the General Motors and Chrysler cases where the Supreme Court refused to hear the cases under the 4th and 7th Amendment appeals nor allow for a jury trial for the plaintiffs when the U.S. Government illegally seized their property (corporate bonds and preferred stocks) without much more than a cursory hearing to advise them to shut up or else.

    8th Amendment:

    Condition: Dead


    Crazy talk about this portion dying also? Hardly. Now the President or an “informed” minion can order an American citizen terminated or detained without due process.


    Not so crazy now, is it?


    9th Amendment:

    Condition: Serious


    The Constitution was originally created to protect all of the rights of the people, be they citizens or not within the borders of this nation. However the use of other laws, regulations, and orders created by the government over the last four years, if not the past decade also, have infringed on the rights of all people within this nation and this portion of the Constitution appears doomed to the memories of history books soon to banned or restricted from the masses and reserved for the privileged few.




    10th Amendment:

    Condition: Critical


    God help us all when this Amendment falls, which apparently Obamacare and the new regulatory provisions dreamed up by the President’s cabinet departments are intending to accelerate. The American people think that power emanates from Washington, D.C. now and have no clue that this Amendment was designed to blunt the power of Federalism and worse, authoritarianism. The evolution of the military-industrial complex has now been replaced the greater threat, the paramilitary-financial complex, a dangerous threat to every citizen’s rights and the ability of the states to defend those freedoms intended by our Founders to be protected by the individual states.


    In summation, and in this author’s opinion, the condition of a free, civil, and Constitutional United States of America can be summed up in one word:

    Critical.

    Once it dies, some of us will look fondly back on the memories of freedom and our Founders and not the new version created in a movie studio by propagandists working at the behest of our national government.

    I'm afraid that I simply don't give a shit anymore.

    When they come for my guns I'll die probably burned to death like that ex-cop.

    So much for fucking "Innocent until proved guilty".

    I like how they told the news to back off....presumably so they could torch the place.

    The media has been helping Obama torch the place since he got in office.

    Oh... you meant the cops though.... /shrug

    I hate to say this but that ex-cop's death was a metaphor for what is happening to America. He wasn't a criminal, he was a decorated Naval Officer, he was a decorated LAPD cop.

    In the Navy he had:
    Awards and Decorations
    National Defense Service Medal
    Iraq Campaign Medal

    Global War on Terrorism Service Medal
    Sea Service Deployment Medal

    Navy Marine Corps Overseas Service Ribbon

    Armed Forces Reserve Medal w/ “M” Device
    Rifle Marksman Ribbon
    Pistol Expert Medal

    I'm certain he had at least one award from the LAPD because I heard someone state that he did on the news in the early days of this and now there's nothing on it out there, but even if he didn't, he had a badge, he was a SWORN OFFICER.

    He didn't get there by being a loser...

    As an average American... I'll use myself, I'm average. I'm a citizen. I'm law abiding. I am... a "decorated veteran". I have 2 or three (I for get) AF commendation medals, I have expert marksman ribbons, I have NDS medal, I have an Army Meritorious Award, I have an AF meritorious award, I earned my combat badge, I earned my honorable service awards, longevity awards. I own guns. I"m a good guy. I'm not (never have been) a criminal.

    Dorner was pushed and pushed. He snapped.

    Americans - like me are being pushed and pushed by Obama and his ilk. They are taxing the hell out of us, making us into criminals by criminalizing our guns, they are taking our First Amendment rights, our Second, our Fourth, our ... all of them.

    One day - someday soon, this country is going to be filled with "Dorners"... men and women who were the good guys, the decorated military men and women, the good, law abiding citizens, those who cheerfully paid their taxes until they were bled dry. And there will be a pile of bodies left behind.

    God forbid all these good folks start talking together.....

    I didn't watch or listed to the SOTU. I did catch today on the various talk shows that Obama wants to increase the minimum wage to $9/hr?!?!




    I guess when you never work in the private sector, you have no clue how basic economics work. If that passes, the costs of everything will skyrocket worse than they already have.
