US Supreme Socialist Court Rules in Favor of Property Seizure

The United States Supreme Court in a 5-4 vote, upheld the Connecticut case of condemning property so the State can take it from the rightful owners. It gets harder to believe day after day, but I am just not surprised anymore. When our personal rights to be protected by seizure of our own property, guaranteed by the 5th Amendment to the Founders version of the US Constitution, comes under fire, they may as well repeal it all together. The CIA factbook says that we are a nation that is Constitution-based federal republic with a strong democratic tradition. So much for that fact.

Here is Artitcle V which states:

Trial and Punishment, Compensation for Takings. Ratified 12/15/1791.

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; 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.

If we do not act now and throw these Liberal Judges from their entrenched benches, we will have an America that our founding fathers would not be able to recognize as the United States, in a few decades. We must revise our Constitution to some how limit the lifetime appointments that a Supreme Court Justice enjoys. Perhaps there should be some confirmation of continuing service which is overseen by the House of Representatives. Contact your rep to complain today or risk losing the rest of your God given rights.

Schwarzenegger Jeered at Graduation Speech

I have to admit right now, I was blown away to learn that California students were protesting against Arnold. Not because he insisted that he have full reign of control to do whatever he wanted, but rather to insist that the citizens VOTE. Only in America would the puke students even think of protesting the right to vote and decide their destiny. The Socialist doctrine is creeping in on America. I would expect Chinese students to protest FOR the right to vote, or perhaps land owner rights, maybe citizenry to urge their government to allow freedoms to a populace that has seen little reform. BUT to have citizens protest elected officials who are FORCING them to vote, simply ridiculous! Click the link above.

Batman Begins In Theaters

I recently saw Batman Begins and to my pleasant surprise the story was fantastic! Bruce Wayne was a very complex and interesting character for once in a Batman movie. The acting was top notch, and the effects were good. I was not impressed with the shaky camera fight scenes, where I found it hard to see anything. I also didn't like the MTV style camera quick takes and cinematography, but for the most part it didn't take from the story. The movie deals with many flashbacks and memory recalls, which I could have done without. Start telling the story from the beginning, and give us the whole chronological view, instead of going back and forth trying to confuse the viewer. The flashbacks didn't add anything special from what I could see. This movie #5 from the Batman Quintilogy is, however, one of the better attempts to tell the Batman story. An obvious sequel will be in the works, in an attempt to bring back Joker. This major review is one of the first I read, and turns out to be pretty close to my own take on the film.

Apple Going Intel Inside!

In what seems to me to be the biggest announcement in the computer world in the last 10 years, Apple has decided to partner with Intel to replace the IBM/Motorola processor which is currently shipping inside the famed Mac computer. It was announced June 6th at the Apple World Wide Developer Conference. You may be asking, what's the bid deal? The rivalry between Intel with Windows versus Mac has been going on since Windows copied the first Mac computer with Windows 2.0 way back when. Microsoft settled and Apple never looked back. Best known for the iPod music device today, Apple set the standard for modern interfaces on personal computers. Now Apple has decided, under the direction of Apple guru CEO, Steve Jobs, to supplant the Power PC chip with Intel. The implications for the long term development of the company is at first obvious. Intel is light years ahead in low power consumption designed processors. But an added benefit is a possible inroads into the 95% market share that Windows software enjoys on the Intel platform. For us PC chip users, we could have a huge choice to make for a robust Unix based Operating System with a tried and true, solidly built Graphical User Interface in June 2006. If Apple was ever going to take a bite out of the Intel market, this may be Apple getting ready to set the buffet table.

See what my favorite tech pundit, John Dvorak, has to say about this one.
