Operation Choke Point - your government at work (for your own good)...

Guidelines designed to discourage banks from doing business with illegal and heinous operations involving things like human trafficking and child pornography are now being applied to legal and legitimate businesses which are deemed “high risk.”

“Our hands are tied by it,” a regional manager with Heritage Credit Union told Hawkins Guns owner Mike Shuetz of federal regulations which forced the institution to close Shuetz’s bank accounts in November.

Operation Choke Point was designed by the government to systematically cut off banking services and payment processing to gun and ammo businesses. This was done in part by adding these businesses to the "high risk" banking category and by pressuring banks and credit unions with additional audits and oversight if their portfolios contain these types of businesses.

Government by regulation, death by a thousand cuts...

NASA spacecraft approaches Ceres, dwarf planet

Dawn should enter orbit around Ceres — the largest object in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter — on March 6, 2015. When that happens, the spacecraft will become the first ever to orbit two different unexplored solar system bodies. (Dawn circled the protoplanet Vesta, the asteroid belt's second-largest object, from July 2011 through September 2012.) 

Too cool!

California now giving driver’s licenses to illegal alians

California has begun accepting driver’s license applications from immigrants who are in the country illegally.

The DMV expects 1.4 million people will seek a license in the first three years of a program aimed at boosting road safety and making illegal (ed. there fixed it for you) immigrants’ lives easier.

So, how does one know that the "illegal" is who they are claiming to be? How does one know that an "illegal" does not go to the DMV 3, 4, or more times to get a "valid driver's license" under any number of names? How long will it be until failure to accept one of these legal "illegal" licenses becomes a crime? By definition, an illegal immigrant is here against the law and is ALREADY breaking the law by being here. What part of "illegal immigrant" do these folks not understand?
