A Florida magistrate ruled this past week that living off the grid is no longer an option in the land of the free.

Special Magistrate Harold S. Eskin ruled Thursday that Robin Speronis violated city codes by refusing to connect to the Cape Coral's water system. Eskin ordered Speronis to pay for water service, adding that her sewer access would be capped until she did, The News-Press reported. "I am in compliance," Speronis told the News-Press. "I'm in compliance of living ... you may have to hook-up, but you don't have to use it. Well, what's the point?"

Limited disclosure, part of transparency deal made last month, shows tech giants turn over data from tens of thousands of accounts

Tens of thousands of accounts associated with customers of Microsoft, Google, Facebook and Yahoo have their data turned over to US government authorities every six months as the result of secret court orders, the tech giants disclosed for the first time on Monday. As part of a transparency deal reached last week with the Justice Department, four of the tech firms that participate in the National Security Agency's Prism effort, which collects largely overseas internet communications, released more information about the volume of data the US demands they provide than they have ever previously been permitted to disclose. But the terms of the deal prevent the companies from itemising the collection, beyond bands of thousands of data requests served on them by a secret surveillance court. The companies must also delay by six months disclosing information on the most recent requests - terms the Justice Department negotiated to end a transparency lawsuit before the so-called Fisa court that was brought by the companies.

Scientists have discovered an explosive that was gathered from the WTC debris soon after the towers were destroyed on 9/11.

Brigham Young University Physics Professor, Dr. Steven Jones united a global group of nine analysts for more reasoning. Also, the scientists confirmed that the samples were Nano-thermitic explosives. There's over thousands of people that have challenged the government's conspiracy theory. Twenty-five military officers have stated that the official 9/11 story is, "Ludicrous", "A well-organized cover-up", "Impossible". There are many other people that have conspiracies on the 9/11 story. High-ranking military officers, academics, and architects, as well as hundreds of 9/11 firemen. The whole story seems like a joke. Commissioners of 9/11 say that the government didn't tell us the whole truth about 9/11, counting its Chairman.

A VPN is the only practical way to stop the NSA from knowing what sites you visit. VPNs will unblock censored websites and block bittorrent lawsuits (along with those annoying copyright warning letters) all for just 10 cents a day.

This VPN installs in minutes, runs in the background, and even works on smartphones. Since the proceeds fund Fight for the Future's activism campaigns, you won't just be protecting yourself, you'll be fighting for a better Internet: one that's free of censorship and spying. A VPN runs silently in the background, sending your entire Internet connection over a secure, encrypted channel. To the outside world, all your traffic comes from a single IP address (in, say, New Jersey... or Switzerland) that thousands of others share.

Federal agencies paid out $688 billion of taxpayer money in improper payments between 2002 and 2012.

And even though the agencies have known all along that the payments were being made in error, their own accounting indicates that $100 billion in improper payments is still on the books. Data assembled by The Fiscal Times highlight massive losses reported by the Office of Management and Budget, which serves as the fiscal watchdog for the executive branch. "In 2012 alone, the Office of Management and Budget gathered data on just 13 high-error programs in the federal government, and determined that they made a combined $101.3 billion in improper payments," the Times reported. "To put that in perspective, that's almost $16 billion more than the highly controversial budget sequester wound up cutting from government spending in 2013."

Since posting this story in 2013, the left simply won't leave it alone. Something about it strikes a chord and they have to lash out at it, even though it's a story.

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan".. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all)...

Congress's decline from the Founders' vision as "first among equals" in government to an echo chamber of the unitary executive, has been a slow but steady process.

In the process we have seen a steady stream of unconstitutional wars and civil liberties abuses at home. Nowhere is this decline more evident than in the stark contrast between the Congressional response to intelligence agencies' abuses during the post-Watergate era and its response to the far more serious NSA abuses uncovered in recent years.

With a seemingly endless line of talking-heads willing to ignore essentially every study that has been undertaken with regard the effects of raising the minimum-wage; and propose what is merely populist vote-getting 'benefits' for the ever-increasing not-1% who benefitted from Ben Bernnake's bubbles - we thought the following burger-flipping robot was a perfect example of unintended consequences for the fast food industry's workers. With humans needing to take breaks, have at least 4 weekend days off per month, and demanding ever-increasing minimum-wage for a job that was never meant to provide a 'living-wage', Momentum Machines - a San Francisco-based robotics company has unveiled the 'Smart Restaurants' machine which is capable of making ~360 'customized' gourmet burgers per hour without the aid of a human. First Jamba Juice, then Applebees, next McDonalds...

A mother submitted this photo from a physician's website in Pennsylvania on the VacTruth Facebook Page.

As you can read, it states that since 2012 "children who are not fully vaccinated will be denied entry to the school building." She asks: "Is that legal? We live in Pennsylvania." No, the information is incorrect, even though it is written on a physician's form. Here is what the law states in Pennsylvania...

​Schools in the UK used biometric technology to gather the fingerprints of over 800,000 pupils between 2012 and 2013, a watchdog has found. In 31 percent of schools, children were roped into giving their fingerprints without parental consent.

Civil liberties group, Big Brother Watch, filed Freedom of Information Requests to over 3,000 schools across the UK and found that 40 percent of schools are using biometrical technology on pupils. Only 1,255 schools responded. Based on the figures, the rights groups estimated that as many as 866,000 school children were coerced into having their fingerprints recorded in 2012-13. "As we are now one term into the 2013-14 academic year, and expect the number of schools using the technology to have increased over the summer, and the secondary school population now above 3.2 million, if the number of secondary schools using biometric technology increased from 25% to 30%, more than one million children would be fingerprinted," Big Brother Watch report says.
