Where I live in Pierce County they are running a sales tax increase on the ballot this year, we just got a flyer in the mail. It says "more cops, 24 hour protection". That is not true. Every one of us is responsible to protect ourselves and those that depend on us. Police are there to arrest after the law is broken, not provide protection. A shepherd protects the sheep. Its a mindset issue. Like the school girls that beat up the pervert that exposed himself. 20 girls chased him down and punched and kicking him.

Did you hear about the congress shutting down because of the toy gun getting past security? I like reading past what they report and doing the what if scenario, like what kind of security guard sees a gun on the x-ray screen and then describe a man grabing a bag and running away, ("They said a man grabbed a backpack and ran off after the apparent revolver was detected") when there was no guy. He just made it up. It was two women.

The Patriotist - W. James Antle III: "Living in Post-Constitutional America"

WND is great at some things but horrible at others, I wish they could get my Whistle Blower magazine to my house in the same month that is printed on the cover. They have been consistently 2 weeks into the next month before it arrives. And that is to their paying customers. :(

Vox also points out some other hits by Farah. Farah does nail it in issues where the media refuses to state the obvious because of bias. Not liberal bias, PC bias, establishment bias. If I was a terrorist, there are so many things that could be done by one man to wreak havoc, and they could not be stopped by a homeland security dept. But they could be stopped by a people who are not afraid protect this nation. Ordinary citizens like you and me. The other day the thought went through my mind "What would I do if a sniper shot someone next to me in a parking lot?" I would assess the situation and start running toward and sideways but I would not run away. (see the Bourne Identity) Those DC snipers were relying on people being afraid, running away. I am unarmed, don't carry a weapon, but I would not let some coward rule my life. What if just 5 kids with a sense of justice carried a concealed handgun to school in Columbine? You would have a much different result there. These are my random thoughts.

And then there are times when Mr Farah make sense (We all sound stupid at times)

WorldNetDaily: Bush and abortion: "Roe v. Wade is, thus, a sham – a house of cards. It was an artificial attempt to make abortion a right by citing a 'right of privacy' that is itself nowhere to be found in the Constitution. Roe v. Wade created rights where none existed and abrogated those that were enshrined as unalienable.

I rest my case.

But I will not rest entirely until this nation is awakened to abortion as both a national tragedy as well as a constitutional threat to all of our God-given rights – as well as an endangerment to the lives and liberties of our posterity."

"If you're willing to endorse eminent domain just because the government doesn't like the offered compromise, that grants far too much authority and discretion to the government, which is not a positive precedent. Permitting excessive discretion to the government--any government--allows all manner of pernicious mischief to follow. It's important to have the system itself be the solution, and not rely on the integrity or competence of whomever happens to occupy an office."

Remember, it is all about control. They want your mind. You have to give it to them.

New shopping carts may talk to you

Kathryn Cullen, a technology specialist at Kurt Salmon Associates, a retail consulting firm, said some retailers are shying away from such extensive use of the store card, also known as a "loyalty card."

"This is a very sensitive topic. I may not want the store to be broadcasting what I bought last time I was in here. You're getting closer and closer to being inside my home."

On the other hand, she said, consumers have a history of eventually acceding to such intrusion for the sake of convenience.

These kind of stories always make me wonder what they have now, These gadgets belong to We the American People, I want my own :)

CIA exhibits spy gadgets with Bond edge
In the 1970s the CIA had developed a miniature listening device that needed a delivery system, so the agency's scientists looked at building a bumblebee to carry it. They found, however, that the bumblebee was erratic in flight, so the idea was scrapped.

An amateur entymologist on the project then suggested a dragonfly and a prototype was built that became the first flight of an insect-sized machine, Hiley said.

A laser beam steered the dragonfly and a watchmaker on the project crafted a miniature oscillating engine so the wings beat, and the fuel bladder carried liquid propellant.

Last night I was reading a blog from the Vox reader list called buried treasure and I had to laugh when she described Vox as neo-connish. I would not use that description, but she has a great blog.

Any woman that has given birth to 10 children has my respect, and she homeschools to boot. We can use more mothers that are as self sacrificing as she, not mention more fathers that will be as self sacrificing as to support a family that size (its not a matter of finances, its about discipline)

I just heard michael medved call joe farah stupid for declaring the end of cbs over the reagan mini series. I think he has a point, cbs is not going anywhere, so why say so. I already boycot tv. They are all the same, including fox news. We want to be entertained, which always turns into influence. We are lead by deception.

Quagmire? I was thinking about politics today. Why do we lose? Because we play by their rules. Democracy is evil. False civility is weakness. I would love to hear a Senator stand up in congress and call Ted Kennedy a scoundrel to his face. I honestly think that we could start to be a more civil society if we brought back the duel. At we could then be straight forward about destroying peoples lives. Instead of hiding behind bureaucratic processes and such. More on what I think quagmire is later.

Help me! I got bit last week by a linux bug. It is now starting to fester. Like a splinter in my mind. As I mopped floors for about 4 hours tonight I had thoughts of distros running through my head. I give it about a month before cant take it anymore. Who cares if there is no room for another box, and no time to download over dialup, no time to sit in front of a computer for hours.

First it was palm OS, then irfanview, then came opera, and now this. Cant I just be normal like everyone else?

The fear of trying to get it up and running is being overcome by the fact that I just spent 20 min downloading yet another 4 critical updates to windows XP. At least I can get my freedom from opera for now, but soon it is going to get bad.

Thoughts for the day,

Freedom is not free! Freedom vs. security, Give me liberty of give me benefits, all just fun words until it hits you in the face.

Claire shares a new article on working without a SSN. Great stuff, It took me months of searching to get the same info. Now dont let it go to waste.

I have been working without a SSN for almost 6 months. It feels great. Until the reality of lack of security hits. Lost my provision stream (i dont have income, sorry guys) last week. Came hard. I support my wife and son. If it was just me I can always sleep under a bridge but I have family. As people found out our situation they would ask "so are you going to get unemployment?" I side step the question with "Unemployment wont pay the bills" which is true. I was in no mood to be lectured for working as an independant contractor. It is the risk factor. We americans are lazy and would rather run to the massa to help us. The gov owns everything anyway.

But not me, I will run to God who owns everything I have. I was following Him and He will continue to lead me.

The first thing my wife said to me was "if you could do anything, what would it be?" ok, am I blessed or what? She is the best! Well we are not sure what we will do but for now I am a wage slave again until the bills are paid. There is work out there if you are willing to sacrifice pride. My family comes before the words "I am worth more than $10 an hour." It is not easy to work 15 hour days but isnt it great to have that option?

So I am not complaining at all. Life is good. We life in an awesome country, even if it is slouching toward communism. Remember, Socialism is still 100% voluntary :) how bad to you want freedom?

WorldNetDaily: Church destroyed after 'gay wedding': "Moscow Patriarchate spokesman Viktor Malukhin stated: 'Nothing of this kind has happened during the 1,000-year history of the Russian Church.

'According to Christian teachings,' he said, 'marriage is a free union of a man and a woman blessed by God, while homosexuality is a sign of human nature obscured by sin.'"

When Doug pointed to a Vox Day Blog I thought it was just a dead link, but Vox has started posting. I will now add him to my blogroll and check in from time to time. Once a week is a long time to wait in the microwave / fast food society that we live in. Vox used to crush his opposition every saturday but he said that people just stopped emailing him their challenges. Vox, I love your column, looking forward to your blog. Vox Popoli

I am no longer trying to change the world, just wake up some people who will wake some more people. Jesse discusses what happens when you take a stand, all alone.

Reflections on a Choice by Jesse Ogden

The whole experience gave me a chance to see how Americans act when one of their golden calves is under attack. Being raised in this country and being told countless times that this the greatest form of government and not understanding the concepts that this country was truly founded on, it makes it hard for most people to even imagine that anything could actually be better. With so much else that goes on in this world and so much to worry about, it’s hard for people to stop and think some things over. It’s much easier to allow someone else make the big decisions.

And even though only I have these beliefs – to the extent that I’ve taken them that is – at my school, there is a solace a person can find in knowing that your beliefs frighten the establishment. It shows that as powerful as the status quo and the government are, they still fear individuals, and with good reason. A single person can influence a person who influences another person and so on, and soon the state doesn’t seem as powerful and unstoppable as they once were.

Car Owners' Hero Dresses for the Job

As a one-man vigilante force, Angle-Grinder Man, who takes his name from the boot-destroying circular saw he wields, has made only a modest impact: by his own estimates, he has freed about 20 cars so far (he does it only part time). But his campaign against the city's effort to immobilize cars for parking violations and other infractions has touched a nerve in a city of strict parking regulations, zealous traffic police officers, ubiquitous speed cameras and car owners increasingly aggrieved at what they believe is mean-spirited law enforcement.

Freedom  --- J. C. Ryle

1. We live in a land where our “bodies” are free.

So long as we don't hurt someone's body, or property, or character, no one can touch us: the poorest man's house is his castle.

2. We live in a land where our “actions” are free.

So long as we support ourselves, we are free to choose what we will do, where we will go, and how we will spend our time.

3. We live in land where our “consciences” are free.

So long as we are peaceful about our beliefs, and do not interfere with others, we are free to worship God as we please, and no one can compel us to take his way to heaven.

4. We live in a land where no foreigner rules over us.

Our laws are made and altered by people like ourselves, and our governors and leaders live among us, bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh.

In short, we have every kind of freedom to an extent which no other nation on earth can equal. We have personal freedom, civil freedom, religious freedom, and national freedom. We have free bodies, free consciences, free speech, free thought, free action, free Bibles, a free press, and free homes. How vast is this list of privileges! How endless are the comforts which it contains! The full value of them perhaps can never be known. It was well said by the Jewish Rabbis of long ago, “If the sea were ink and the world parchment, it would never serve to describe the praises of liberty.”

Freedom  --- J. C. Ryle: "Time and space would fail me if I were to attempt to say ten percent of what might be said in praise of freedom. What are the chronicles of history but a long record of conflicts between the friends and foes of liberty? Where is the nation on the earth that has attained greatness, and left its mark on the world, without freedom? Which are the countries on the face of the globe at this very moment which are making the most progress in trade, in arts, in sciences, in civilization, in philosophy, in morals, in social happiness? Precisely those countries in which there is the greatest amount of true freedom."

"The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a
nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right,
which Heaven itself has ordained." --George Washington
