cultural differences

Some have asked what I’m going to be doing in 2014. Well, I applied for a building permit for a new house. It was going to be 100 ft tall and 400 ft wide, with 12 gun turrets at various heights, and windows all over the place and a loud outside entertainment sound system that was going to entertain the whole neighborhood. It would have parking for 200 cars, and I was going to paint it snot green with pink trim. The City Council told me; “Forget it…IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN!” So, I sent in the application again, but this time I called it a ‘Mosque’. Work starts on Monday.

another great news show

Thanks to the Internet, the government-granted media monopoly only owns the minds who give themselves to it. One of the great alternatives is The Keiser Report. For the first 15 minutes of the show, Max and Stacy discuss a topic or two with incisiveness and wit. In the second half Max brings on guests who, in my experience, are always excellent as well. Today’s show is an excellent introduction to The Kaiser Report. They discuss banking, money, gold and the why of inflation, easing and more. The Keiser Report, Episode 556, January 30

natural news TV

Earlier this month, a 9-year USAF veteran, an environmental health specialist, spoke before a group. Her talk was recorded and posted on the Internet. Missy and I just watched this very compelling show. There are some crazy people in powerful positions doing things you should at least know about. I’m not recommending any action, just KNOW this is happening. Give this show 5 minutes It is 21 minutes long. I think you’ll want to watch the whole thing. Geoengineering Whistleblower

Constitutional sheriff

The Sheriff was the highest law of the land prior to the Constitution. That position was deliberately unchanged by the Constitution. The sheriff is close enough to the people to be within their control. There is NO state or federal agency that can lawfully over-ride that. The framers of the Constitution thoughtfully put this in place to protect the people from excesses of central government. There are over 100 constitutional sheriffs in the USA who know and operate on this foundation. From coast to coast, county-by-county, sheriffs are protecting the principles that made this country great. This is true in over 200 USA counties and as the willingness to oppress grows more apparent, more sheriffs are rising to the occasion. […]


This needs to be shared widely. With limits on my Internet quantity and to support the movie making/distributing effort, I’ll just buy the dvd. You make that call for yourself, but one way or the other, at the very least watch the movie. – Ted We placed MOLON LABE – How the Second Amendment Guarantees America’s Freedom up on YouTube for free about 62 days ago and you can still watch it at Over those 62 days about 43,665 people have watched the movie and this number is growing by about 500 screenings per day. Word about the Second Amendment and the Militia of the Several States IS getting out. There are about 90,000,000 gun owners in the U.S. […]

State of the Union

Libertarian Party response to 2014 State of the Union address WASHINGTON — Libertarian Party Executive Director Wes Benedict issued the following statement today in response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address: Thanks to unprecedented levels of government interference and government coercion, Americans’ rights are violated like never before. We are harmed by taxes, regulations, prohibitions, and shocking privacy intrusions. Unfortunately, most of the harm and injustice of government occurs because too many Americans support existing government policies. We’re suffering under a tyranny of the majority. Our Libertarian hope is that we can convince enough Americans to change their minds. We hope voters will come to understand that government is force, and force is unjust. Here are some […]

Darby Adult Ed signups still open

The Spring 2014 Courses start dates are as early as January 31st and late as May 22nd. Courses will be canceled, fees refunded if less than 7 people are signed up 2 days before the class begins. More information from the Darby Adult Ed website here. The first class of the semester is at risk of cancellation for shortage of signups. Typically, most of them come in this week, so having 3 of the 7 minimum is not yet a show-stopper, but a warning. class information: Radio Communicating The personal computer fundamentals class I am offering to begin February 6th also stands at 3 of the required 7. class information: Learning Linux

his lips are moving

Apparently the believers will be treated to wild yarns of an imagined past and incredible future, broadcast nation-wide by its television monopoly gang of six and delivered primarily by the Liar-In-Chief. incredible – 1. so extraordinary as to seem impossible 2. hard to believe; unbelievable. In case you find yourself in front of the mass-media-box around that time, you may want a post-game show that has a little more substance and credibility. For same-day coverage, I recommend the Libertarian Party’s website: Their track record is very good, and they have promised coverage of the event. For an in-depth review from a guy who goes bare-knuckle and holds not punches, Gerald Celente is my favorite. His research and production team […]

education tax credits

I just tripped over a new campaign by Ron Paul. It is worthy and strikes at the root of a huge percentage of THE PROBLEM. I posted it here just a few minutes ago: Every Week Should Be School Choice Week But as I sat, pumping my my arm, saying, HECK YEAH!, the little voice in my head was claiming my version of this solution as I articulated it in my 2006 election campaign was a bit better…. and Imagine if it had begun in Idaho 7 years ago – whew! What a difference it would have made. Oh yeah, check out the televised debates from that campaign. While my head constantly screamed “RUN!” the body stayed and did quite […]

Every Week Should Be School Choice Week

Editorial By Ron Paul National School Choice week takes place from January 26 to February 1, and during this week education freedom activists around the country will be participating in events highlighting the need for parental control of education. I wholeheartedly endorse National School Choice Week, as parental control of education is a prerequisite for a free and prosperous society. When government usurps control of education from parents, education can easily become indoctrination. Centralized, top-down models of education are also doomed to failure as there is no way a bureaucrat in DC can design an education system capable of meeting the needs of every child in the country. The failure of centralized education is shown by the correlation between […]

why silver?

8 Reasons Why Silver Is the Investment of the Decade Mac Slavo March 7th, 2011 If there’s one asset that’s heated up over the last several months amid tensions in the middle east and a second round of the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing, it’s silver. The price has risen so dramatically, some 20% since January 1, 2011 through today, that investors may be wondering what actions they should take. For those who have not acquired the precious metal, the obvious question is, should I buy now or is silver in bubble territory? Those fortunate enough to have seen the crisis writing on the wall in 2008 and before, and have seen a 200% or more increase in the value […]

cat picture

While nearly all of them are a big yawn to me, today I saw a cat picture on facebook that was begging to be properly cropped and captioned. I did the job and share with you here.

global gun grab – near miss

In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The Statement of Purpose from the Bill reads: “To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.” The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo. Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing […]

going for the gold

John Embry is the Chief Investment Strategist of Sprott Asset Management, a position he’s held for nearly a decade. Having studied precious metals for over thirty years, John knows all there is to know about gold. He’s invested in precious metals through both crushing bear markets and raging bulls, giving him unique insight into where gold may be going next. In short, John Embry’s opinions on gold are worth paying attention to… and he has some very strong opinions about where gold prices are going in the next twelve months. Quote I am really fascinated with the gold and silver markets for a simple reason: I believe that the fundamentals that should be driving the price couldn’t be better. […]
