Law Enforcement Against Prohibition

exploding heads

Another one bites the dust… The Snowflake Generation The ME Generation The Don’t tell me NO generation The Everyone is a Winner generation The Trust the officials, don’t trust your parents generation However you slice it, the middle aged people today are not the same as they were a generation ago. A man is as good as his word. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Give more than you receive. It is this latter one that has come into question today after a third close, dear “millenial” blew up on me this year. In each case I have replayed the incident and all the preceding baggage I can conjure up only to find no […]

violence is golden

“Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Nations and peoples who forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.” — Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988) “Freedom… refer[s] to a social relationship among people — namely, the absence of force as a prospective instrument of decision making. Freedom is reduced whenever a decision is made under threat of force, whether or not force actually materializes or is evident in retrospect.” — Thomas Sowell (1930- ) The above courtesy of http://quotes.liberty-tree.ca/DailyQuotes “Strong communities are peaceful communities” — Ted Dunlap […]

economics lesson for disasters

        Saturday, September 09, 2017 Economics Natural disaster hurricane Price gouging Price Controls Professor Horwitz Explains Price Gouging In the Midst of the Storm It takes guts to go on CNN and explain economic truth – for humanitarian reasons – in the midst of emergency conditions. by  Foundation for Economic Education It takes guts to go on CNN and explain economic truth – for humanitarian reasons – in the midst of emergency conditions. But FEE’s Distinguished Fellow Steven Horwitz did just that, right as Hurricane Irma is bearing down on Florida. The immediate problem is that anti-gouging laws have contributed to causing massive shortages for gasoline, water, and other essentials right when they are needed the most.  Horwitz explained […]

getting to know our good neighbors

Six months ago I bought a pair of custom topographical maps. One is my Area Of Interest (AOI) – that included my super-vulnerable home and our bug-out location, the homestead we bought and “rented” to offspring. The other map was a much more usable scale covering our Area Of Operations (AOO), that is the homestead neighborhood. See more detail here: mapping your neighborhood Because the kids are of the Snowflake Generation, the Me Generation, run to the tune of The World Owes Me A Living, the rental has become our new home. We are as busy as one-armed-paper-hangers cleaning up, remodeling and moving in. This has increased my focus on our AOO. It occurred to me that our podunk county […]

bad news for sitters

I have seen mentioned by numerous researchers that sitting a lot is bad for us. On the other hand, too much time with weight on my left knee with its long-abused thin meniscus makes it increasingly tender. I try to make sure I spend some time getting physical standing or moving on my own two feet, but also avoid excessive time loading that knee. I just read this latest study posted below. It is not really new information to me, but definitely reinforces the message with solid study results. Sigh. I suppose I will review my sitting bouts, and try every 30 minutes to get 5 minutes of walking, dancing (definitely NOT me), or some regular interesting activity that […]

the weather gods

They are real proud of their “success” in geoengineering. More than half a century started with “cloud seeding” and progressed to widespread aerosol spraying with a myriad of toxic nanoparticles combined with huge electrical antenna arrays strategically located world-wide, sending focused charges up, down and sideways. With generous financial incentives and employment opportunities for staff and students alike, participating universities have full blown degree programs that feed the system, filling the manipulators of our ecosystem with pride that they can overpower Mother Nature. Now the old 100-year flood, 100-year storm models that used to determine where it was prudent to put buildings and infrastructure are being blown out of the water, or under water, as the case may be.  Ha […]

when the obvious becomes hard to ignore

The “war on drugs” scam has been running for 45 years, but its cover appears to be breaking down. The ludicrous Reefer Madness campaign is now widely ridiculed. The state-by-state rebellion of the people against the ruling elite is proving more than the mythology of their war can hide. The scourge to society and its children has not taken place in legalized pot states. The “no medicinal benefits” CDC lie has been thoroughly debunked by real world experience. And now pot prohibition’s obvious funding of organized crime, in both private and government sectors, is being laid bare.   Legalizing Weed Has Done What 1 Trillion Dollars and a 40 Year War Couldn’t Written by Nick Bernabe The $1 trillion War […]

resisting the all-seeing-eye

This came as a newsletter from the search engine I have been using for quite a while. I highly recommend duckduckgo for all your websearches. They have even more suggestions for ducking, at least a little bit, the Surveillance State. -Ted How to Live Without Google Remove Google from your life? Yes, it can be done! Google trackers have been found on 75% of the top million websites. This means they are not only tracking what you search for, they’re also tracking which websites you visit, and using all your data for ads that follow you around the internet. Your personal data can also be subpoenaed by lawyers, including for civil cases like divorce. Google answered over 100,000 such […]

Have we hit bottom yet?

The new Woodpile Report has been published. As always, it is worth reading. His writing is delightfully understated. His readers are assumed to be literate, clever and alert. In a world full of noise where nuance is unappreciated, and being told what to think is the norm, his respect for the reader is pleasurable. I do you a disservice posting this debate here, as his context building is worth the read. I therefore recommend you click the link to Woodpile Report only viewing the video below as part of a solidly developed bigger picture. On the other hand, he reports that the video has been taken down several times. I contribute my fair share to honest reporting by keeping it […]
