Florida legislature has chance to say ‘no’ to drones

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida legislature will consider a bill in the 2013 session that would protect residents and visitors from prying eyes in the sky.

Sen. Joe Negron (R-Palm City) filed SB92 last month. If passed, the Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act would prohibit the use of domestic drones over the Sunshine State.

“A law enforcement agency may not use a drone to gather evidence or other information.”

The bill opens the door for any person whose privacy is violated by a drone to take civil action and would also make any evidence gathered in violation of the act inadmissible in court.

South Carolina bill would Nullify Obamacare

The 2013 legislative session in Columbia may well become a watershed event in the reassertion of State Sovereignty and protection of the rights of the people of South Carolina. Senators Bright and S. Martin submitted a pre-filed bill that would nullify the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in South Carolina.

S. 102 would nullify not just the mandate portion of the ACA, but the entire bill as unconstitutional. It states:

The General Assembly declares that the federal law known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, signed by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, exceeds the power granted to Congress under the United States Constitution and therefore is not law, but is altogether void and of no force.

Passage would also prohibit the state of South Carolina from implementation the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and criminalize federal agents from attempting to do so as well:

Judge Napolitano On Spending: ‘You Don’t Cut Cancer Out One Cell At A Time, You Cut It All Out’

On Wednesday, Judge Napolitano weighed in on the fiscal cliff deal, going after Republicans for failing to do the job that they were sent to Washington to do.

Now, the next battle in Washington looms, with the U.S. debt ceiling needing to be increased once again. The judge believes once the debt ceiling hits, the government should stop borrowing money and immediately cut spending across the board to “live within our means.”

“When you have a cancer, you cut it out. Not a cell at a time, you cut out the cancerous organ!” said Napolitano on Fox Business Network’s ‘Varney & Co.’

That prompted Stuart Varney to ask what would happen if the U.S. government cut out so much spending all at once.

“If the government shrank the government, if it shrank each department by 10 percent, it would save a great deal of money. There would be a lot less obligation on the part of debt service for us to pay. I know there would be an initial reverberation here, you could call it an earthquake if you want, because we are so addicted to government borrowing,” said Napolitano.
