Worried about Panhandlers while Violent Crimes go Unsolved


kgan post panhandlers

Seriously, we’ve had several shootings, a home invasion, a bank robbery right downtown and a carjacking that the media downgraded to “car stolen at gunpoint” and the City Council is talking about aggressive panhandlers?

The City of Cedar Rapids is revisiting the issue of panhandling tonight.  The City Council shot down a proposed ordinance to ban it three years ago.  Coming up on CBS 2 News at 10, Gabe Erickson talks with one man who panhandles to make ends meet.  What do you think? Does the city need to prohibit “aggressive solicitation”?  http://www.cbs2iowa.com/shared/newsroom/top_stories/videos/kgan_vid_13745.shtml

My post the other day, “Times are Hard” was merely to shed light on what one panhandler said about another panhandler (who in the past has acted aggressive towards me over “his spot”).  I want to make it clear right here and now I didn’t feel like either of them were being aggressive towards me at all in my video!  If the guy I talked to in my video is right then the man interviewed in the KGAN video owns a house and is saving up to buy land!

Greg Hughes for Congress ~ The Issues


It’s up to us to elect liberty candidates. When our court system is more about profit than doing its job, we have a problem. The only way we can fix it is to get the right people into elected positions. Only we can fix this! Take responsibility for your liberty and get involved today!

Families are being torn apart by the system and the courts are 99.9% of the problem. You can’t make this stuff up. There are too many stories to list on this blog but I will share a couple!

The stories make are enough to make one cringe!

A Iraq Veteran, a victim of the economy was late making his payments to the Child Support and a judge put him in jail over it! How is someone supposed to get caught up on Child Support if they can’t work? To make matters worse the veteran got caught up and even received a refund check but the judge didn’t care he ordered more jail time. That doesn’t make any sense at all. Why are judges wasting our resources to imprison people for debt? If people were going to be imprisoned for their debt then why isn’t Congressman Joe Walsh in prison for being $175,000 behind? Something just isn’t right.

Another Iowa father, Michael, is ordered by a judge to do supervised visits with his mother in-law. Even though she stated that she would “rather take a knife and stick it in his throat than look at his face”. What kind of judge puts a child that they are supposed to be protecting in a predicament like that? Iowa Judges that’s who!

Not only are our families under attack but our civil liberties are as well. We need a congressman who believes in the Constitution and internet freedom. Can we count on Bruce Braley to continue to vote against these attacks on our civil liberties? I don’t know. What will Ben Lange do? Who knows! They are both lawyers and we all know that lawyers aren’t going to stop madness in the judicial system!

It’s up to us to put the power of the people back into the people’s hands. It’s time to step out of the two party paradigm and really study the candidates. What has Bruce Braley done for us over the last six years besides vote against SOPA? He pretends to be a liberty candidate when the issue is high profile. Where does he stand on the Red Light cameras? Where does he stand on anything really? Greg Hughes is recognized as District 1’s “Liberty Candidate” by the Daily Paul
