The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Our Unapproachable Congress

While I am trying to keep the number of YouTube embeds to a minimum around here, this one is especially deserving of your attention.

Here's yet another illustration proving that our current Congress is made up entirely of would-be royalty, all of whom shudder at the thought of actual interaction with the dirty underclass electorate.

Via Gateway Pundit, Dan Riehl, and Ace.

This illustrates a conundrum we have created with cameras everywhere.

 

At a public meeting, however, there should be the presumption that the entire meeting will be a matter of public record. Also, teabaggers, acorn holes, or self anointed activists of every other stripe need to not butt in on other citizens' questons. Be polite, but be heard.

 

While on the one hand, I am glad to see more people using video to protect civil liberties, we have already seen several cases (like Sherrod) where selective, unethical edits were made to present a distorted view, rather than merely presenting the truth and allowing the citizens to see the truth for themselves.

 

I could support a law that requires that before you can record someone (even at a public meeting) that everyone who is on camera or who can be heard by the camera, must provide advance, written consent. I could also support the removal of all of the cameras in public places. They do not make us safer, they just treat us like we are animals to be monitored along with the rest of the herd.

If I am to be monitored by some cop, I want him to be out in the community, just like I am. I don't want any of our citizens subjected to some rat-faced voyeur, who is on the public payroll to keep tabs on our personal interactions. We are headed down the wrong path as a society.

 

American must reassert our LIBERTY, or we shall surely lose it in the face of this electronic surveillance onslaught.

 

BTW, Bean needs to be kicked out of office, even though she is a Democrat. Who is her opponent? Joe Walsh:

Ummmm... What aspect of "PUBLIC" meeting do you not understand?  People do not need prior and advanced written permission to film people walking in public.  They do not need an expectation of privacy in an open public meeting.

 

All I can say to this video... HOLY COW!!!  This once again goes to show how our rulers have grown into our ruling elite.  Ms Bean actually had a public forum to teach people the difference between SAVINGS and SPENDING?!!?!??!

I guess she really does see her people as that stupid.  And, unfortunately, since she was elected to office, those people are that stupid.
