40% of Americans say they trust the federal government to do what's right at least most of the time. That's down 17% from a survey conducted for the center in October, but it is higher than the 29% recorded in July.

Government favorableness ratings followed the same pattern. The percentage of people viewing the government favorably rose from 50% last summer to 78% in the fall, only to drop 18% since then.

"Attorney General John Ashcroft on Friday defended the FBI's reorganization plan against charges the new, proactive approach to fighting terror will infringe on Americans' constitutional rights."

"If you sit and wait for a crime to happen, and then you respond to it, that isn't a very good prevention strategy," Ashcroft said in an interview with Fox News. "You have to be able to develop or to get a lead from your own information, not wait for something to happen to trigger your activity."

"For reasons that remain impenetrable, if not just plain contrary, our inscrutable Transportation Department continues to hold out against arming airline pilots. Why they did so remains a mystery."

"Pilots need to concentrate on flying the plane," non-explained John Magaw, undersecretary of transportation. But can you think of a greater aid to concentration on the part of the cockpit crew than knowing a sidearm is available should the cockpit door suddenly give way?"

"On the morning of April 20, 1999, two gun-wielding teen-agers walked into their school, Columbine High, in Littleton, Colorado, opened fire and killed 12 fellow students and one teacher—perhaps the most shocking recent example of gun violence in America. The massacre prompted U.S. filmmaker Michael Moore, armed with cameras and boom mikes, to travel across America—and Canada—to try to understand why the United States has the highest gun-related murder rate in the world."

"A Bush administration program that calls for federal agents to prosecute gun crimes runs afoul of the U.S. Constitution, some legal scholars believe. "In actuality and despite what the federal courts have felt constrained to do, the federal government has no more legitimate constitutional authority over gun crime that happens in one state than it does over jaywalking or drunk driving," said Gene Healy, Cato Institute legal scholar."

Why not start spreading the truth about "Zero Tolerance". Print out and distribute. This will make a great student binder cover.

The Bill of Rights has a built in "Zero Tolerance".

"We the People" and Government need to know about it. We must bring our history out of the closet. By doing so, we can seek to avoid a "repeat".

"Chutzpah isn't a word often used in connection with typical admirers of Islamonazi terrorism. But John Walker Lindh is special. In federal court, Lindh's attorney has claimed that prosecuting him for firearms crime would violate Mr. Lindh's Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The Second Amendment claim was preceded by another claim that prosecuting Lindh for joining al Qaeda would violate his First Amendment right of assembly."

"I'm for the Second Amendment," the 57-year-old medical software developer and consultant said as he displayed World War II-era British Enfield rifles at his Collin County home."

"But the terrorism threat looming over the country has led him to campaign against what he considers lax laws governing the importation of parts that can be used to make automatic weapons."

--Right. So he's a hypocrite contributing to the destruction of the country he took an oath to defend.

"It's all part of Cowboy Action Shooting, a sport started in California in 1981 by the Single Action Shooting Society. (Most pistols in the Old West were "single action," meaning you have to cock the hammer for each shot.) The shooting society now has more than 47,000 members in 450 affiliated clubs nationwide. It's big in Texas (of course), New York, Illinois, "anywhere there's a big population."

"In the Florida Legislature's winter 1999 session, tough-on-crime politicians passed a law that puts people who have or use a gun during a crime behind bars for a long time."

"What they didn't do was put money behind enforcement of the plan that became known as 10-20-Life, which went into effect later that year. So local prosecutors fought for the money themselves."

"The tragic death of a Mesa teenager from an airgun pellet Monday underscores yet again the need for youngsters to be instructed in gun safety — even if they never intend to hunt or own a gun themselves. That’s "gun safety" in its traditional meaning of "learn to respect guns and handle them properly," not in its hijacked meaning of "restrict the wicked things as much as possible."

OPEN SEASON -- "To the young Mexicans with baggy jeans who regularly prowl the rocky bank of the Rio Grande, the isolated Vega Verde neighborhood just across the river is an American wonderland of large well-furnished homes, satellite dishes and SUVs."

"It is also traditional easy-pickings for thieves, and when three dirt-poor Mexicans from Ciudad Acuña waded the river on November 1, 1999, their target was the last house before the thickets of carrizo cane began."

"The court arguments take a different position from those made by Attorney General Ashcroft and Solicitor General Olson in which they said the Second Amendment gives individuals a constitutional right to gun ownership."

"Under the governor’s order, the state’s National Guard carries unloaded M-16s at its nuclear plants."

"The National Guard is subordinate to the [fully armed] Pennsylvania State Police, Hixson said. State police provide support to private security details hired by plant operators."

Regardless, why have National Guardsmen walking around with unloaded weapons? Even more bizarre, a state representative democrat is out there pushing for the governor to change his mind.

Let Off Some Psychological Steam, Enjoy A Great Read & Prepare For If...

From a 60's anti-big-goverment radical echoes a message we're all to familiar as being imminently nescesary. These skills are needed
if we wish to subvert the liars, here lie methodologies. I prefer the later.

If we wish a look back or a look into the 60's and one side of the politics, this is it. In retrospect, after learning of Ed Lansdale and his manipulations in the 50's in setting up Nam (www.prouty.org); Abbie stands vindicated.
