heavily armed sore losers

Casinos are big business, very lucrative and with little investment in things like manufacturing capability or raw materials. Even the little pocket casinos that litter the main roads make big money from a small handful of customers. That’s all okay. With freedom comes responsibility. Each of us is at liberty to utilize or discard our resources any way we want. We trade things we value more for things we value less. Lack of choice is for children who hopefully grow into taking full responsibility for their lives, liberties and properties. We call that “growing up”. In this same free world, the casinos are at liberty to attract, entice, reward and get money from their clientèle in whatever way they feel […]

Driving While Thoughtless is a crime against anyone inconvenienced, injured or killed. Almost by definition, the best and brightest in our society do not make it to political office at state or national levels. Unsurprisingly, they don’t grok the whole problem. Instead they attempt solve one small part of it, then watch in puzzlement while their new legislation fails to achieve the desired results. People who grossly overestimate their ability to multi-task including driving as one of those tasks has long been a peeve of mine. They are universally WRONG. You know it too. You get all frosted at the driver who is weaving, speeding, slowing, stopping inappropriately, failing to respect the traffic signal (red or green), backing up a […]

corrupt judges

FISA court judges buying Verizon stock as they approve NSA surveillance Judges who serve on the FISA court, approving the government’s collection of phone metadata, have bought Verizon stock in the last year. Although the justices have financial involvement in the company, it is not considered a conflict of interest. Under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the National Security Agency and other members of the country’s intelligence community must request approval from a top-secret court (the FISA court) to be able to legally place an individual under electronic surveillance. They must show that there is probable cause that the targets “are or may be” aligned with a terrorist organization with the purpose of carrying out acts of terrorism against […]

sex taboo

We cannot talk about sex in polite company. Rulers and law makers throughout history, around the world, including here and now, prohibit all sorts of sexual conduct among the non-politically-connected in their typical “Do as we say; not as we do” fashion. There are special forces in most large police agencies devoted to sex – that is, arresting those whose appetites run counter to the political rules. Sex outside a theoretical norm is distasteful, prurient, embarrassing, not to mention disastrous if caught by public exposure or police intervention. Yet most of it, no matter how outlandish it seems to any of us individually, is actually quite normal. But we cannot talk about it, fight the Puritanical legislation against it or […]

victory in Idaho

VICTORY: Idaho Legislature Votes to Nullify Federal Gun Control All across the country, we’re seeing states begin to fight back against federal overreach. States are using nullification, a method of undermining federal law by preventing state resources to go towards its enforcement, as a way to effectively gut the unconstitutional measures passed by Congress. This is happening with policies like Obamacare, NDAA, and federal gun control. Idaho’s legislature just joined the fray to push back against future federal gun control measures by unanimously passing a bill that would prevent the state’s officers from going towards the enforcement of any measure that would disarm the citizenry. The bill, which contains an “emergency” provision that means it would go into effect immediately, […]

The Nuremberg Principle

from Zero Aggression Project It applies to crimes large and small The Nuremberg Trials established that . . . Legislation is not the same as law Legislation must be moral to be lawful “Government” actions that violate moral rules are criminal This applies not only to the large crimes committed by villains like the Nazis, but also to the smaller crimes committed by your own “government.” Whenever “the government” threatens or initiates force against innocent people, it violates the moral law, no matter what the legislative “law” may say. To show empathy for the victims of this criminality, start applying the Nuremberg Principle where you live. Share this idea using the social networking buttons at left. Join ZAP by subscribing […]

standing up from the bench

After decades of packing the benches with judges who Go Along with the administrations in power, having one slam them down on something this important is a wonderfully pleasant surprise. It is actually a bit courageous on the part of judge Kathleen Forrest. This certainly will not do her career any good, and carries some actual physical risk in an era of unrestrained police state power. While we do our best to not think about it much, we know that the NSA, CIA, IRS, DHS, FBI, ATF alphabet soup is illegally, unconstitutionally collecting data, planting evidence, SWAT-raiding “the wrong home”, disappearing people, “assisting” suicides, not to mention droning at will nearly anywhere in the world. Either Judge Forrest isn’t thinking […]

Yawn. Another Big Drug Bust

by Jacob G. Hornberger U.S. officials and the mainstream press are going gaga over the latest drug kingpin to go down. This one’s name is Joaquin Guzman Loera, aka El Chapo, described by the New York Times in a front-page story today as “the world’s most wanted man – the chief executive of what experts describe as the world’s most sophisticated narcotics enterprise, the Sinaloa cartel.” The mainstream press is calling the arrest a “major victory in the fight against drug gangs in Mexico.” U.S. officials, whose drug-war forces helped capture Guzman, are now seeking his extradition to the United States to stand trial for violating U.S. drug laws. All of this ballyhoo might well have an effect on […]

evening news

We really enjoy our evening news. It isn’t the crap that half the households in the USofA are fed by the mainstream media monopoly. It comes from much more accurate and honorable sources. It takes a bit of time to ferret them out, but well worth it. I mean, do you want well presented lies or a slightly less splashy truth? Striding the middle ground is The Keiser Report We always enjoy Max and Stacey – they honestly make us smile in spite of the oftentimes sick, grim news they are delivering. After all, the news isn’t always news to us, but their perspective is fresh, honest, clever and, the fun part, caustic. Their January 9th report was a peach. […]

Constitution? What Constitution???

shocker: judge with normal IQ

Federal judge says NSA’s phone surveillance program is likely unconstitutional A federal court judge in Washington, DC ruled Monday that the United States National Security Agency’s controversial practice of routinely collecting the telephone records of millions of Americans may run afoul of the US Constitution. Judge Richard Leon of the US District Court for the District of Columbia wrote in an opinion released on Monday that plaintiffs who filed suit against the NSA in June have standing to challenge the spy agency’s program that collects telephony metadata pertaining to millions of Verizon subscribers every day. The plaintiffs, led by conservative legal activist Larry Klayman, challenged the NSA in court six months ago when they filed a lawsuit calling into question […]
