Is Darth Vader about to lose more of his dignity?

According to die-hard Star Wars fans, George Lucas continues to ruin the franchise with every new release. In this latest tweak, Lucas plans to sell the three original films on Blu-Ray.

Are you familiar enough with Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope to catch what has been changed here? Hint: Listen for Darth Vader to say something that wasn't in the original release.

According to WideAsleepFilm, who posted the clip, this is original (non-Blu-Ray) footage, with a leaked MP3 clip dubbed over the original sound. For those who are really curious, io9.com has the full story here.

Rep. Steve Chabot and the Police State

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive." ~C.S. Lewis

Think your government respects the Constitution? Apparently the answer is a loud, resounding "NO" if you ask Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH).

Watch as law enforcement officers confiscate cameras and mobile phones from law-abiding citizens attending Chabot's August 22 town hall meeting at North Avondale Recreation Center in Cincinnati:

Apparently, Chabot would like to be re-elected. But is he even qualified to be a Congressman? (We know, Barney Frank and Charlie Rangel are Congressmen, so the standard isn't exactly high.) Our inclination is to suggest that one who is approves of confiscating electronic devices at a public meeting is NOT qualified to serve in ANY elected office our Republic, much less the United States Congress. Perhaps the good people of Ohio's 1st Congressional District can help us get rid of this public nuisance of a politician.

Reports indicate that Chabot actually used the flimsy excuse of "protecting constituents" in order to take away people's personal property. (see the C.S. Lewis quote above.) Because Chabot is an establishment Republican, news media haven't even bothered to report this story. Just curious, but would an Oathkeeper have executed this order?

Blogger John Romano posted an excellent piece on this story here. You can follow Romano on Twitter.

Are you outraged? Contact Chabot today and let him know what you think of elected officials abusing our Constitutional rights. Be respectful, but be sure to tell him what you think about his flagrant disregard for our rights:

Enthusiasm builds around Sarah Palin in Iowa

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin isn't a candidate for President. Not yet, anyway.

Despite that, the former Republican vice presidential nominee is embarking on the One Nation Tour, a bus tour around the country. And she's being met with growing enthusiasm and excitement. Take a look at this video of her appearance at the Iowa State Fair, posted on August18 by Team Palin:

President Downgrade: All talk, no listen

USA Today reports that several members of the teaparty movement confronted President Obama after an Iowa town hall meeting. One man, identified as Ryan Rhodes, can be heard in the clip below asking the President why people in his administration call teaparty activists "terrorists." (Rhodes is founder of the Iowa Teaparty.)

Predictably, the Campaigner in Chief deflects the question, saying, "You don't want to listen." Consistent, for an out-of-touch man who hasn't ever listened to a conservative opinion about anything. It's a little surprising he didn't offer Mr. Rhodes a seat in the back on one of his new $1.1 million stealth campaign buses.

And then Obama actually says, (or perhaps has the audacity to say?) "Timothy McVeigh."

Americans are weary of this socialist in perpetual campaign mode. His regime kapos constantly label patriotic, ordinary Americans as the enemy. It is, in fact, Obama and other progressives who detest the US Constitution, and really do view citizen gun owners as a serious threat to their big-government, authoritarian reign.

As a people, let's covenant together to remove their authority over us during the 2012 elections, shall we?

President Obama works constantly on jobs, killing them by the millions

President Obama has consistently claimed since being inaugurated that he works constantly on jobs. Or that he's about to "pivot" to working on jobs.

That leads us to conclude that he must be working to destroy jobs, because that is the only result so far. More than two years into his administration, millions of Americans are out of work.

Our official unemployment rate still hovers near 10%, with many claiming the real number is closer to 20%. Our national debt is soaring, the Federal government is growing exponentially, businesses say they aren't hiring. Obama policies have stifled economic growth at every opportunity.

We realize it's tough to listen to our Prevaricator in Chief, but, if you can stand it, here it is in his own words, and in the words of his minions:

Deja Vu?
