Welfare of all kinds

If you want to stop corporate subsidies I am all for that, but do not think for one minute that welfare subsidies are not a major drain on us also. Wall Street has the "too big to fail" regulatory system from the government that enables them to behave badly knowing there is a pot of $36 billion to bail them out on an ongoing basis.

Food stamps $75billion in 2011, corporate subsidies $154 billion planned for 2013, wars $6trillion over the last 10 years. But Obamacare is going to push 85 million Americans onto Medicaid which will increase to $800 billion by 2018 Fed & State combined.  

Yeah subsidies are bad but it's the wars that are really killing us. But neither side want to talk about that cost except the Libertarians. Politicians that is. The whole system sucks. 

You may think at least the individual welfare is helping people but is it?  Poverty has not decreased ever during any of these programs.  If anything, many of them are planned to make it difficult for anyone to get off a program once they are on and then we have generational victims.

The biggest victim is the American taxpayer suffering from all of the above.

Dave Ramsey nails it!

We can't escape the math of Obamacare.

If we really wanted to do something that MIGHT have worked, establishing walk in clinics at the state level to handle those who have no insurance would have kept them out of the emergency rooms saving us billions of dollars.

Let the rest of us shop for our insurance across state lines.

Keep the feds out of it cause they just add to the cost and bureaucracy.

Frankly, I say "thank you"!

Why should the Republicans negotiate?  Obamacare is a total disaster and will be the thing that collapses our economy so heck yeah, keep holding out!  This is about what is best for our country and Obamacare is NOT!

So for once I say "hang in there".

Oh and Obama's approval rating is down to 37%.  Just so you know.

Possible Attempted Military Coup of the US???

"Swiss intelligence analysts point to what they describe as a “cabal” of US military officers “fully intent” upon destroying the Obama regime, even if it means war."

 There is supposedly yet another individual, a Swiss citizen, who has reports collected from MI6 and our CIA to be turned over to wikileaks.  These could be even more damaging than Manning/Snowden.

Also, did you know there was a military coup uncovered last February?

I have been saying that the "travel warning" issued this week was probably a distraction and to watch for the other shoe to fall.

Interesting reading, is it true?  Don't know, but something to watch for.

Words of liberty

All too often people get hung up on labels, "I don't like them because they are XXXXX", liberals, republican, conservative, tea-baggers, homos, homophobes, muslims, islamaphobes, jews, whatever....

I wish the best for everyone, I wish everyone to be free. No one to be oppressed, no one under tyranny, no one to be abused. Truly "liberty and justice for all".

Some liberals have this idea in mind, they think governmental control of everything is the way to ensure equality.

The do not understand that with that "equality" comes a total lack of freedom.

Some conservatives, think only of themselves, believing they want equality under the law. All the while trying to control what other people do based upon the morals they think everyone should have. Seeing themselves as the foremost among equals, believing the best way to do this is with government, the Frank Burns' of the world... "individuality is ok as long as everyone does the same thing".

I don't believe that anyone has the right to anything owned by another, not their body, not their work, not their mind, and nothing they have made or bought. Nor should others have the right to tell you what you can do with what you own.

Thus, I can get along with some liberals, and some conservatives, because I can see good in both sides, and I can see the massive problems with both sides (the government).

"The most frightening words in the English language are 'I am from the government, and I am here to help' ".

I believe the world owes me nothing, and I owe it nothing. I do volunteer work, because I choose to, give because I choose to. I do not violate others rights, and I will fight to protect my rights and the rights of others.

I do not ask for, nor want the governments "help" ~czhliw

Voters Want Special Prosecutor For IRS

Even 63% of Democrats!

And in this Quinnipiac poll, Obama's approval ratings are suffering, mostly among independents. 

The one item that boggles my mind is yes voters of all parties are concerned about the IRS scandal but don't care about the email hacking?  Have they forgotten Watergate?  This is the electronic version of that break in.  And a direct attack on the First Amendment protections given to media.

How many confidential informants had their identification jeopardized?  If we don't stand against that abuse, we could all be next.  FROM EITHER PARTY!

See that is the thing everyone forgets.  If you excuse behaviour just because it is your guy doing it, then you have set the precedent for the next guy to do the same TO YOU.

A Recent Government Study Says.....

LOL no wonder MJ loves government studies so much!  But oops, Papa Joe Biden spilled the beans again, bet you guys wish you could put him in a closet somewhere.

Joe Biden recently let the cat out of the bag and affirmed the true intentions of the flurry of proposals for government studies on violent media that have propagated in the time since Newtown shootings: that is that they are purely political studies with a purely political intent to create pseudoscientific cover for a brazenly unconstitutional agenda.

That bears repeating: they are purely political studies with a purely political INTENT to create pseudoscientific cover for a brazenly unconstitutional agenda.


Scandal smandal

This is why so many don't care about the shenanigans coming from the White House and why his approval rating has not gone down the way it SHOULD.

They feel no shame.

IRS and AP

How can you possibly justify the actions of our government lately?

The IRS targeting ANY group should be criminal whether you agree with the group or not.  The IRS should be non-partisan.  They have been used to target the left in the past and hey guess what?  It was not well received by them then, so they should be screaming just as loud now.

To keep from being hypocritical that is.

And Associated Press having their phones, etc., hacked?  How many confidential informants were exposed during this witch hunt?

The media better pay attention, they are not immune to tyranny.  For too long they have proved how partisan they could be, making many wonder why do they have 1st amendment rights if they are going to abuse them.  So now they see what can happen when they don't do their job and vet everyone in Washington regardless of party affiliation.

Both parties have been guilty of this and you keep voting for them?

Libertarian Party = we are here to take over your government and leave you alone.

You CAN love your country without loving your government.

Bank makes money on citizens booked into jail!!!

Get picked up for minor (or major) run in with the cops.  Get bailed out and turn to collect your belongings you had with you when you came in, well guess what?  You don't get your cash, you get a fee laden DEBIT CARD!!!

Please spread this story.

Rocky's Story

Jason and I were going out to the Pilot truck stop on Riverwatch at I-20 at about 1AM in the morning of Friday, April 26 to get him a phone charger. Coming down Alexander Rd, we came across what looked like a traffic accident down at the intersection of Riverwatch. Within about a block of it, I made a legal u-turn and headed back from whence we came in order to avoid a delay due to an accident backup.

Immediately, a car pulled in behind us from out of nowhere and executed a blue light special. I stopped, put my window down about 8 inches and handed the state trooper my driver's license when he asked for it. Trooper Rhodes then "insisted"that I put the window all the way down - or that I open the door. I told him that I could hear him just fine and that if I needed to, I could speak a little louder. He "insisted" several times that I put the window down or that I open the door - once even grabbing the window and trying to rip it out of the door!

He said that it was a "safety"issue for him, even though I had my hands on the steering wheel and Jason had his hands on the dashboard the whole time. He said that I was "obstructing his investigation" - even though he could not (or would not) tell me what he was investigating except to repeat over and over that I had turned around to avoid a traffic stop. (We could see 2 cop cars with blue lights, a car carrier and a couple of other cars sitting in the darkness - looked at that point more like atypical accident scene than a roadblock).

I repeatedly asked Trooper Rhodes if I was being detained or if I was free to go. He eventually told me that I was being detained. I asked what crime did he suspect me of having committed that warranted a routine traffic stop being turned into a Terry stop. He never answered.

Anyhow, one of the 10 or so officers present went to Jason's door on the passenger side (he had not bothered to lock it! Kids! What you gonna do?) and jerked it open,threatening to taser Jason if he did not exit the vehicle. At that point I felt it might be better to go ahead and exit the truck. I got out of the truck and hit the lock button and started to push the door closed when I remembered I had not taken my keys out of the ignition.I reached back in to get my keys. (Note to self: Don't ever do that again!) I felt at that point that they were going to put me on the ground though cooler heads eventually prevailed and I was allowed to get my keys, but was not allowed to close the door.

As I was being pulled away from the truck by the arm before I had a chance to lock and close the door, I shouted “I do not consent to any search of my truck.” Apparently,the cop who removed Jason thought I said, “Do anything you want.”because he took the opportunity to go through the glove box and look under the seat. Even though we were unable to secure the vehicle, to my knowledge, that was the only “search” that was made. I do believe though that every one of the 10- 12 officers present shined their flashlights into the truck and took a look. Some one of the cops eventually closed both of the locked doors and secured the truck.

The cop said that he was “only”going to charge me with "Obstructing a Law Enforcement Officer." Uh, what were your other options Trooper Rhodes?

He told me as he was later leading me to the paddy wagon (not your father's paddy wagon, btw!) that he would have let me go had I rolled down the window or opened the door;all he wanted to do was verify that I had a valid driver's license and that I had not been drinking and driving. He had my driver's license from the beginning of the encounter, and this was the first time that he had even mentioned "drinking"; he never asked"Sir, have you been drinking tonight?" or even mentioned the term "sobriety checkpoint" or anything about alcohol until he was leading me to the van to be processed.

Before I was released they called out a bunch of us from the holding cells and told us to line up single file and march though the door that read “Men's Showers”. I must admit that for someone who is as distrustful of state power as I am, the analogies to other such orders given a long time ago flitted through my brain.

Once inside the “showers” they had us exchange our clothes for the green scrubs-style inmate costume and led us to another gang holding cell. We were taken out one at a time and placed in a single cell to do a “disrobe, bend over and spread your cheeks” check for contraband. Then we were loaded onto a bus and headed off to Phinizy Rd Correctional Facility.

We stopped at the courthouse and some of us assumed that we were going to be arraigned and given a bail hearing and “Oh boy, we would be home by supper time.” No such luck! We sat at the courthouse waiting for those who actually had gone to court to join us for the ride to Phinizy. At that point I thought that it was going to be a very long weekend!

A few minutes after we arrived at Phinizy, another guy and I were called out and told that we had been bailed out and would be returning to the downtown LEC to be processed out. It turns out that my sister – bless her little heart - had gotten a bondsman to bail me out BEFORE I had boarded the bus to Phinizy. I actually saw the bondswoman come into the jail and go in and do the paperwork before we were removed from our holding cell –not knowing of course that she was my ticket to freedom.

Another interesting thing, a guy who was arrested for "disorderly" for telling his arresting officer that he was "fucking up" and then calling him a"motherfucker" had a $280 bond; the "DUI's" that I heard about had bond of $1440 to $1600. My bond for not rolling my window down all the way was $1300!

Long story short (I know, I know; too ate for that!) I spent 12 hours or so in police custody for not rolling my window all the way down. Court date is set for June 20. Hope to see you there.

A Citizen Stands Up For His Fourth Amendment Rights!

As reported by Operation Rolling Thunder Spotline:


Local Augusta activist James (Rocky) Eades was arrested yesterday morning, (4/26) when he avoided a police checkpoint on Alexander Drive.

When pulled Eades was approached by a uniformed officer, who asked him to roll down his window. When he only rolled the window down half way the officer insisted that the window be rolled down further.

Eades: "I don't really feel comfortable doing that"
Officer: "Ok, step out of the vehicle"
Eades: "Am I being detained?"
Officer: "I am only stopping you safety reasons"
Eades: "Am I being detained?"

{Eades and his passenger put their hands on the dash to indicate they had no ill intentions}

Eades: "Safety for whom?"
Officer: "......Why did you dodge our block?"
Eades: "Blue lights are a universal sign for disress ahead and your block could've just as well been a wreck at a 3 way intersection"

The officer did not respond but Eades and his passenger soon found themselves surrounded by eight more officers, all flashing their flashlights in the windows of the vehicle also demanding that they get out of the car. Eades looks at his passenger and tells him to go ahead and comply, but to lock the door behind him. An officer tried to jump in the car upon his exit but the passenger quickly reached around the deputy, closed, and locked the door.

The passenger then found himself verbally contending with 4 officers and Eades was pulled from the truck by force, handcuffed, shouting that he did not want the vehicle searched. An officer searched it right away. The passenger volunteered a BAC in exchange to be able to take Eades' vehicle home instead of the alterative of it being impounded. The officers agreed to the offer.

Eades was detained on a $1300 bond for mist obstruction of law enforcement officer.

Officer: "Is your friend always this hard headed?"
Passenger: [Smiles] "yes"

Rocky Eades is an active member of this page and has physically tracked down blocks for ORTS.

Rocky is a friend of mine and we work together in the CSRA libertarian group.  There were no drugs involved, no alcohol involved, no guns involved! So don't want to hear any "if he didn't have anything to hide" crap! You do not have to submit to having your rights violated just because you have nothing to hide. Even if you had nothing to hide and said sure go ahead and search, you just might get that one crooked cop who will plant something. By giving them the ability to search, you open yourself up to that possibility. Protect your rights or you will lose them when you need them the most.

Our group will be supporting him through this and I'll keep you updated.

The Real Tragedy of Boston

A point brought to my attention by a fb friend.

Boston was the initial site of our Revolution and stand for freedom. Now with citizens locked in for 24 hours, being stopped if they were out, searched without a warrant, questioned, in a few cases made to lie on the ground hands behind them and legs crossed, houses searched again without a warrant, armed men looking in your windows, a suspect captured and will NOT be read his Miranda rights, and to add insult to injury used as an excuse for Congress to pass CISPA severely limiting our privacy and rights.....

Sorry Boston but your legacy has severely been altered for all time.

The Death of Objective Journalism

“For what it’s worth, I do think that those of us on the left have made a decision not to cover this trial because we worry that it’ll compromise abortion rights. Whether you agree with abortion or not, I do think there’s a direct connection between the media’s failure to cover this and our own political commitments on the left. I think it’s a bad idea, I think it’s dangerous, but I think that’s the way it is.”

If you expect to continue being protected by the First Amendment you have to do your job.  And that is to report ALL news whether you agree with it or not.

This is nothing more than pushing an agenda, hiding facts that go against your agenda.

What else have you NOT reported?

More excuses for confiscation!

The kid in a picture on facebook is holding a .22 that has been modified to look like a AR-15.  He is holding it correctly with his finger away from the trigger.  And in a picture you can't say it's loaded!  Obviously his parent took the picture so he had parental guidance. 

They use that picture as an excuse to confiscate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  STUPID

"No one is coming for your guns".  Again I say BULLSHIT.

Are you free?

I want us to stop thinking that government gives us our rights. If they give us rights, they can take them away. Even the constitution does not "give" us rights, it only talks about a few inalienable rights:
Unable to be taken away from or given away by the possessor: "inalienable human rights".

In other words we have the right to do ANYTHING we want to do as long as it is not already legislated such as murder, etc. No where in the constitution, does it talk about marriage or what size mag you have with that gun, what food you eat, what size drink with that meal, what you do with your property. We have allowed them to think they can tell us what to do. That kind of thinking enslaves you. Change your thinking and remember, the government works for us.

Education in America

Stole the pic from my buddy Craig "We The Libertarians" which I think came from elsewhere!!!  Who knows, libertarians don't much care for copyrights, we freely share.

Craig asked a group of us on facebook to give ideas on how we could change education.  Here is my response.  Realizing that not one size fits all is the first step. There are two ideas I've run across recently that I really like. One is a twist on the homeschooling (which I love) and that is the parents that have room and patience to take on more than just their own children can contract with other parents in the area that want the benefits of home schooling. Another is from a Harvard professor who is advocating for a return to a community based version of the old school "room", where a much smaller group of children are taught in one room. The older children help the younger and help the teachers which would also be a smaller group. Helps to eliminate the bully aspect so many are subject to, is cheaper than federally funded applications and much easier to adapt to the needs of the children. We certainly do not need the federal department of education as they have spent billions of our tax dollars in addition to the actual costs of the schools and have given zero benefit in return.

A Non-Partisan Salute!

We should all feel proud of our political parties and affiliations this week, regardless of which side of the political spectrum.

Democrats, Republicans, Tea Party people, ACLU, Code Pink and many others all came together to support Senator Rand Paul in his filibuster.

We all recognize a very clear threat to our individual rights represented by lethal drones.

Once we dismiss those people that are all about "the ends justify the means", we can indeed come to agreement on important issues.

Give yourself a pat on the back!

Mother Jones gets it right for once!

"Snitch" with Dwayne Johnson is being lawded as the first great effort in ending the war on drugs that has cost this nation so much in the way of money, families destroyed, lives lost both in the law enforcement community, so-called criminals and innocent bystanders.

Mother Jones has a pretty good review of the movie and the story behind it.

Fox News on the left, GOP press release on the right.

Fox News cribbed research and graphics directly from a National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) press release.

Anti-gun quotes from the left

 h/t Liberal Lunacy
 Anti-Second Amendment quotes from the left. The last one REALLY shows how dumb/Scary these guys are! -Shannon

"When we got organized as a country, [and] wrote a fairly radical Constitution, with a radical Bill of Rights, giving radical amounts of freedom to Americans, it was assumed that Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly .... When personal freedom is being abused, you have to move to limit it."
- Bill Clinton

"The measures adopted to restore public order are: First of all, the elimination of the so-called subversive elements .... They were elements of disorder and subversion. On the morrow of each conflict I gave the categorical order to confiscate the largest possible number of weapons of every sort and kind. This confiscation, which continues with the utmost energy, has given satisfactory results."
- Benito Mussolini

"All we ask for is registration, just like we do for cars."
- Charles Shumer

"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty."
- Adolf Hitler

"A gun-control movement worthy of the name would insist that President Clinton move beyond his proposals for controls ... and immediately call on Congress to pass far-reaching industry regulation like the Firearms Safety and Consumer Protection Act ... [which] would give the Treasury Department health and safety authority over the gun industry, and any rational regulator with that authority would ban handguns."
- Josh Sugarmann (executive director of the Violence Policy Center)

"All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party."
- Mao Tse Tung

"If I could have banned them all - 'Mr. and Mrs. America turn in your guns' - I would have!"
- Diane Feinstein

"My view of guns is simple. I hate guns and I cannot imagine why anyone would want to own one. If I had my way, guns for sport would be registered, and all other guns would be banned."
- Deborah Prothrow-Stith (Dean of Harvard School of Public Health)

"I don't care if you want to hunt, I don't care if you think it's your right. I say 'Sorry.' it's 1999. We have had enough as a nation. You are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun I think you should go to prison."
- Rosie O'Donnell (At about the time she said this, Rosie engaged the services of a bodyguard who applied for a gun permit.)

"Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country."
- Mayor Marion Barry, Washington, DC

Holy smokes! Oregon Democrat wants prescription-only cigarettes - Washington Times

I really want people to quit, but on their own accord after doing the research of the harm they are doing themselves HOWEVER, this idea by Greenlick is stupid. Even if it doesn't stand a chance of passing, I'm worried about people with this mindset.
