Louisiana Creating Database Of Residents Who May Be A ‘Risk To The State’

Louisiana is making a citizen database to store information about residents who may represent a “risk to the state,” according to State Representative Chris Broadwater. The Comprehensive Person Profile was developed by the SAS software company. The contractor reportedly utilizes personal information from all state governmental agencies to create citizen data entries into a single, centralized file system.

The citizen database will allegedly be used as an aid in pinpointing “future criminals” and permit the state of Louisiana to “intervene” in the lives of residents to offer suggestions and guidance on factors such as mental and physical health and criminal at-risk behaviors, if Representative Broadwater’s assessment is accurate.

The Louisiana Comprehensive Person Profile was initially created to battle unemployment claims and worker’s compensation fraud. The centralized data warehouse allowed all government agencies in the state to both access and submit information on residents. Broadwater stated that the citizen database is being used to determine which residents might be a risk to the state “down the road” based upon the facts in the data entries. The lawmaker also noted during a recent interview that governmental authorities could now quickly determine if an individual is likely at risk for incarceration in the future.

The Comprehensive Person Profile database public relations announcements have reportedly introduced the systems as a means to make the lives of Louisiana citizens better because it will allow enhanced speed when renewing a driver’s license and other routine government forms.

If Broadwater is correct, even information about resident’s children will be included in the citizen database in Louisiana. An activist group known as The People, LLC is urging voters to support HB 1076, a data privacy bill. The legislation would reportedly pave the way to nullify policies which allowed the sharing of at least some personal family information in the state database.

Excerpt from The People, LLC website:

“The People, LLC is a partnership between two citizens who have come together to actively engage in the legislative process in Louisiana. Our goals are to ensure that: all laws and regulations fall within the confines of the Constitution; and, the rights of every citizen are protected. The People, LLC was created in response to observations made during the 2010 Louisiana Legislative Regular Session: ONLY special interest groups, or “stakeholders”, were represented by the actions of our Legislative and Executive Branches. Also, whenever we addressed the committees, the members were very interested in knowing, “Who are you with?” Being with no group or lobby, but armed with facts and the Constitution, we always responded that we were “with” no one—we were just citizens coming to take part in the debate. With the full intention of returning to session in March of 2014, we will use this site to focus on providing the most comprehensive information possible in regard to the most pressing issues facing the only “stakeholders” who should matter–LA’s individual citizens.”

According to The People, LLC website, HB 164 reauthorizes the Louisiana Workforce Commission for four more years. The bill is scheduled to be heard in the state senate labor committee on April 24.

I hereby volunteer to be on any list that would imply I’m a danger to the state.  I’m a free thinking anti-statist who believes that any government is incapable of doing anything but ruin things, so do with that as you will, scumbags.

A List of Cliven Bundy's Supporters, Now That We Know He's a Pro-Slavery Racist - Yahoo News

Great, but the implication here is that if you’re a pro-slavery racist, the government cannot mistreat you.

I do not get what his racist views have to do with what the BLM was doing. Character assassination is right out of the Alinksy playbook and this is textbook. The left rallied against him before they knew a thing about him. Now this story comes out.

I don’t care if he’s a raging racist scumbag, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a valid point. One does not invalidate the other.

(And for the record, I’m not even saying he does have a valid point, just that his personal race views do not make a difference in that regard).

Amazon Sales Drop With Online Sales Tax - Business Insider

Nutshell: Amazon sales dipped, marketplace (non taxed sales) increased.

And the “local businesses” that were supposed to be saved by this? 2% increase.

Basically, this feel good bullshit legislation solved precisely nothing.

"What’s a postal worker to do when a company that isn’t the United States Postal Service starts offering USPS products and using its own employees to sell those services? Prepare to protest, which is what the American Postal Workers Union is going to do on Thursday at 50 Staples stores."

~

Translation: postal workers don’t like being shown how utterly irrelevant they are.

Of course the Postal Union hates this idea, calling it an “attack” on “the American public.”

Right. It’s an attack by making your shitty services more convenient for the average person.

I can’t wait ‘til the junk-mail delivery service goes away. It can’t happen soon enough.

"The trial against a 65-year-old man accused of murdering two teens who entered his home is underway in Minnesota, stirring debate about how far people can go in defending their homes."

~

No it’s not. And they didn’t “enter his home.” They broke in. And he killed them.

If you don’t wanna die, don’t break into my house.

The idea that he can be charged with murder for killing two intruders into his house is so ridiculous we should be protesting in the streets. Instead, we have a bunch of assholes arguing that “you don’t have the right to kill someone just because they’re in your home.”

Oh fucking really? Because if they aren’t invited, I can’t think of a better reason to put two rounds in ‘em.

Obamacare Architect: ‘Be Prepared to Kiss Your Insurance Company Good-Bye Forever’ | TheBlaze.com

People are just catching up to this in a big way. This is something I wrote back in 2010/2011 (view the presentation here):

Within a few years, the insurance companies will either: 1. Raise their rates to exorbitant levels to cope with the various mandates imposed upon them which means they may end up out of the market or uncompetitive… Or… 2. Just go out of business. Now, the government didn’t actually take over the industry yet, but they did force the businesses in the industry out of business. Someone will have to fill that gap. And seeing as no private insurance company in their right mind would dare enter a market like this, who do you think will take it over?

"Houston City Council passed an ordinance Wednesday that makes it illegal to be a hoarder in an apartment, townhome or condominium complex."

~

That’s how you solve hoarding. Just make it illegal.

The question is:

A: How do you find out someone is a hoarder? The law is touted as allowing “access.” Does that mean random apartment spotchecks?

B: What is the standard for “hoarding” and how much “stuff” is too much and how is that measured by an objective standard?
