Time is nigh, folks

Via Sipsey Street, linking to a piece out of Yahoo! News we find that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled (I use that term purposely and in the gravest sense of the word, here) that the government can track your movements, without warrant and without your knowledge, and by whatever means they may see fit, including tagging your vehicles, while parked on YOUR OWN PROPERTY, with GPS devices.

Repeat after me: Huxley, Orwell and Bradbury. How prescient those men were.

This might be what does it. The event horizon is within plain view, as the ball is squarely within the Gummint's court at this point. They no longer need be constrained by the idea that something they are doing might be illegal or even inadmissible in any court. They've been handed a carte blanche at this point, and the Fourth Amendment (and by way of that - ALL the others) can easily be excised from the Constitution, though I've had my doubts about the veracity of that document as it applies to the fucking Gummint, for some time now.

I will no longer be surprised at anything that happens from this moment forward.

My new recommendation for materials to acquire for the collapse; Concrete and rebar.

The one mitigating circumstance here is that it's in the Ninth Circus, the most overturned circuit in Federal Appeals history. If the Supremes don't do it again the America I know is gone for good.

This one really had to tie the Left side of the Ninth up in knots; generally they love to "defend" the rights of gangbangers, pimps, pushers and so forth. On the other hand, they're devotional Statist assholes who can't seem to understand the distinction between "enumerated powers" and "individual rights."

Note also Alex Kozinski's scathing dissent. He's one of the good ones, kryptonite to the Progressive Left, and should be the next appointee to SCOTUS. Hell, he should already be there, but never on Jugears' watch, of course. If you've not had the opportunity, look into some of his opinions, particularly the ones in which his dissents were utlimately vindicated by a High Court reversal -- there are quite a few too many of those.

Alex Kozinski has always impressed me, but then again, he's not wrapped up in the notion of academia, so it's not so surprising. He can plainly read and articulate what it means to be an American and an Originalist when it comes to interpretation of the law of the land.

I'm not too confident of SCOTUS taking that case up, and even if they do, I'm afraid that it'd come to a 5-4 decision anyway, at best, with at least one of the supposed "conservatives" voting for state-sponsored terrorism in their own country, along with the statist asshole Donks. Sotomayor and Kagan would absolutely lead the way with some dipshit response about "needs of the state" trumping the Fourth, when the plain language of said amendment says otherwise.

I'm sick of it all.
