FBI Visiting Gun Shops to Investigate “People Talking About Big Government”

FBI counterterrorism agents are visiting gun shops in South Carolina to investigate “suspicious purchases” made by people who talk about “big government,” according to a new report.
Author Brandon Turbeville says he was approached by an individual who works in a Columbia, South Carolina gun shop to relate the story of how an FBI agent entered the store on Monday, showed his credentials, before proceeding to ask a series of stunning questions.
Telling the gun store worker he was tasked with visiting all the firearms outlets in the local area to check on “suspicious purchases” for counterterrorism purposes, the agent then began discussing what in actual fact were “completely normal transactions,” such as, “paying with cash, purchasing long guns, and other similarly innocuous behavior.”
The FBI agent then reportedly made a shocking remark that almost seems too chilling to believe.
“If you see some Middle Eastern guy come in, you don’t have to be so worried about that. What we’re really looking for are people talking about being sovereign such as sovereign citizens or people talking about big government,” the agent reportedly stated.
Before the agent left the store, he handed the employee a flyer which lists paying with cash, buying in bulk, along with other seemingly innocuous behavior as suspicious activity.  The LIST!

GOP writes legislation to deny Eric Holder his salary

A Republican congressman has introduced a bill that would stop government paychecks for officials who have been found in contempt of Congress — a move that seems designed in the short term to go after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.

Mr. Holder has refused to cooperate with House Republicans’ probe into the Fast & Furious gun-walking operation, and the House has voted to find him in contempt. Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court.

Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican who publicly excoriated Mr. Holder at a hearing last week, introduced the legislation just before Congress went on vacation, and announced it Tuesday.


“The American people should not be footing the bill for federal employees who stonewall Congress or rewarding government officials’ bad behavior,” Mr. Farenthold said.  


Mr. Holder appeared before the House Judiciary Committee last week and faced harsh barbs over his defense of Obama administration policies. He bristled at having been held in contempt.  Source!

Food Stamp Recipients Outnumber Women Who Work Full-Time

People participating in the food stamp program outnumbered the women who worked full-time, year-round in the United States in 2012, according to data from the Department of Agriculture and the Census Bureau.

In the average month of 2012, according to the Department of Agriculture, there were 46,609,000 people participating in the food stamp program (formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). That contrasts with the 44,059,000 women who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, according to the Census Bureau’s report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States.


For each woman who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, there was slightly more than 1 other person collecting food stamps.  Source!

Feds to Ban Junk Food in Schools

The government is putting its (big) foot down.  No more junk food in schools.  As Danica Lo of Epicurious writes:
New rules for school food kick in this July -- and for kids going back to school in the fall, it's sad sad news. According to new regulations being instituted by the USDA, junk food is now totally verboten -- in school vending machines, stores, and lunchrooms. That means that fruits, veggies, whole grains, and dairy are good to go -- high-sodium, high-sugar, and high-fat foods are not.
Rules, as we all know, exist to be both enforced and broken and it will be interesting to see how far the Feds will go to make sure the rules are obeyed.  Will it be a zero tolerance regime? First time offenders getting thrown in the jug for carrying concealed candy bars.
And, also, will the kids be more resourceful than the food cops?
This could be the start of a War on Food.  Source!
