The Border Patrol Will Beat You Up

A look at how Americans are treated at inland border patrol checks.

It seems it doesn’t matter if a Liberal or conservative administration is in power…if you refuse UN-constitutional searches at inland Border Patrol checkpoints they will beat you to within an inch of your life. These federal agents are out of control, your life is in real danger if you resist them in the tiniest way. This country is not free anymore, and the police forces are out to beat us into submission.

Of course we all know the outcome of the trial this minister will have to undergo. He will have a dozen “witnesses” from the border patrol who will say he resisted legal requests from the agents and he “resisted” arrest. The surveillance tapes will be mysteriously “lost” or the cameras will have “malfunctioned.” and he will face imprisonment or more probably he will be offered some kind of “deal” that will save face for the agency

All of this is in the finest Conspiracy Theory tradition, the police agencies conspire to hurt people who legally resist them and then they conspire to lie about what happened when they go too far in retaliation.

We citizens need to realize that ALL civil police and federal enforcement agencies in America WILL now use life-threatening force against anyone who back talks them…they are no longer working for the citizens.  We no longer have 4th. amendment rights in America, and federal agents seem to no longer need probable cause…

Creation, Evolution, Texas State School Board

You gotta hand it to those Texans…they just won’t let religion and schools alone. A Doctor of Urology is running for a position on the school board in District 11 of the Texas State school board (Southwest of Ft. Worth) and he is outspending the opposition by about 12:1

Doctor Barney Maddox, the candidate, has been quoted as saying: “the theory of evolution is a “myth” and a “fairy tale.”

This fits right in with mainline Texas thought. I spent time in Texas a while back and I still vividly remember meeting workmates and people in the community. Their top 5 questions always included…”and what church do you go to?” They had to know this to place you on the social scale, to know if they would continue socializing with you. I could just visualize them getting home and taking out their little score-cards to grade newly introduced people.

It probably won’t be very long before creationism is somehow slipped past the US constitution and taught in their science classes at schools. Well, they’ll get what they deserve. If creation theory gets well established in the state it will head downhill scholastically pretty quickly, as the religious faction behind this is very conservative and anti-science. Once they feel that they are in control and the mainstream in their community…”I pity the fool.” You’d better try to fit in if you live there–and are atheist or non-church going.

To give you an idea of what was going on, I remember leaving the state when my job was done, (3 years) and literally breathing a sigh of relief when crossing over the border into another state. It was like overcast skies suddenly cleared to bright blue. Never been back, don’t ever plan too. Oh yeah, and they still have ‘dry’ counties…no drinking.

Texas is a lot responsible for the negative feelings I have for the conservative, evangelical, fundamentalist movement in the US. If they would ever get in full control of a society like ours, I would have to become a freedom fighter. You can’t reason with them, you just have to leave or fight…well maybe not literal fighting…but really strong political and intellectual counteroffensives.

I have my fingers crossed for them….but, I’m not optimistic.
