Strapping people down for forced blood draws in Gwinnett Co., Georgia

This is for drivers on Labor Day Weekend.

How about an aggressive lawsuit for every one of these blood draws? The guy on the gurney asks, "What country is this?"

Over at the Gwinnett County Sheriff's website, a video that looks more like Marine recruiting than community policing.

From Grad School to Prison

This past spring, Cecily McMillan rode a bus across a bridge to Rikers Island, home of the notorious New York City jail. When the Occupy Wall Street activist was released nearly two months later, she had left her old self behind.

As Told to Abigail Pesta | Cosmopolitan Magazine

I didn't cry my first night in jail.

By the time I got through the 12 hours of intake — the lines, the fingerprints, the strip search — it was 4 a.m. In a dorm with 50 women, I lay on a cot smaller than a twin bed, with a mattress so thin, I could feel the cold metal beneath my back.

I didn't feel much of anything emotionally, except a vague sense of resolution. At least I knew my fate now. I was a convicted felon.

I had spent two years awaiting a trial, accused of assaulting a policeman at an Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City in March 2012. As I remember it, the officer surprised me from behind, grabbing my right breast so forcefully, he lifted me off the ground. In that moment, my elbow met his face.

At the time, I was a graduate student at The New School for Social Research and volunteering as a union organizer, in fact helping police negotiate contracts. I was studying nonviolent movements and had been inspired by pacifists like Bayard Rustin, the activist who helped Martin Luther King Jr. My arrest was the opposite of everything I stood for.

"I Hate American Tyranny! Oooh But Please Give Me Putin/Gaddafi/Assad!"

What is wrong with some of my "liberty" brethren?!??!?! Actually, this is not meant for my libertarian friends. This is meant for the purely anti american/anti american government/extremist populists... I am so disgusted by some of you, that I've been wanting to post this for a LONG TIME and after watching Putin's defense for his PURELY TYRANNICAL laws against his own people, I realized, its time to bring the fight on. I'm anticipating a lot of venom, but what's right is right, bring it on!

Just be honest, you tyrant defenders, you are not "libertarians." I am a libertarian and I love my country, but I hate my government. I hate any man who thinks that by force and by money they can control another man. Thats what the US government is, thats what Putin is, thats what Assad is, What Gaddafi was, Saddam Hussein was, thats what Hitler was, thats what Stalin was, etc etc etc. yet these same FOOLS who decry US hegemony and US world dominance, APPLAUD AND DEFEND PUTIN!!!

Putin, really? The man who is lying to the whole world while invading Ukrain (I was NOT a fan of US involvement into Ukraine and believed Crimea has a right to succession, but whats going on now is pure murder and tyranny of violence of one state over another).

Virgin Valley High School Harrases Cliven Bundy's Granddaughter

By Ian Whitaker (contact)

Friday, Aug. 29, 2014 | 11:17 a.m.

Citing the "communistic mentality" of county school administrators, Cliven Bundy's son has withdrawn his children from county schools.

Ryan Bundy said he made the decision following a disagreement this week with administrators at Virgin Valley High School, where his daughter was set to attend. School officials refused to let the girl carry a pocket knife on school grounds, citing safety concerns. Bundy said he feels that's a violation of his children's rights, and has decided to pursue education for them elsewhere.

Israel Seizes 1,000 Acres Of Palestinian Land In West Bank...

Sept 1, 2014

Less than a week after a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas halted the bloody 50-day war in Gaza, Israel announced it is appropriating nearly 1,000 acres of land in the West Bank for Israeli settlers.

Israeli officials declared a 990-acre region as "state land," effectively confiscating it from Palestinians who live nearby and claim ownership.

The land is west of Bethlehem, in an area with several established settlements.

Peace Now, an Israeli group opposed to further settlements, called the move the biggest land grab the country has undertaken in over 30 years.

I hear there is a big bully in a state called "Far Far Away"

I hear he has rounded up a gang of cold blooded killers and they are killing anyone who gets in their way. Fortunately, we have a wise old leader in our town called John McFool who has come up with a brilliant plan to keep my family and I safe. Even though I am heavily in debt and on the verge of bankruptcy, he says I should borrow the money to make the long trip to Far Far Away, and I should walk right up to the bully and shoot him in the head. He says that will make me safer. He says the bully will be dead and not one gang member will want to retaliate against me or my family because I shot their leader in the head. He says there is no reason to expect any gang members to follow me back to my town and kill my family with a bomb.

And if the gang elects a new leader after I shoot the current one, John McFool says I will have to borrow more money again next year and make the trip to Far Far Away and shoot the new gang leader in the head. John says there is no chance that any of the gang members will want revenge and follow me back to my town and harm my family.

Does the House of Representatives really represent? You decide!

How many people really know how many people one Representative represents? It can vary from State to State, but the average is 700,000+ people.

Do you know when they fixed the amount to 435? Some people debate 1911 or 1929.

Either way, is this really a representative Republic?

I break it all down here:

There was a North vs South. Now there is a West vs East.

The eastern states have enjoyed an immense amount of wealth and property ownership. Just look at all that land. I visited Wisconsin the other month for my fiancé's family reunion. Caught an awesome bass kayaking with no federal permit. Her aunt owned a plot of land that used to be a camping ground. Apparently if you lived in the camping ground for 10 years it was yours but you had to build a house. These personally built houses were awesome and so efficient.

Latest John Williams (from Shadowstats) Interview - Released 8/31/14

Greg Hunter, USA Watchdog


http://youtu.be/clrpVNoPHII

"The economy is in severe trouble." Williams goes on to say, "When you see a contraction as we had in the first quarter, given all the upside biases that the government puts into the series, you know the economy is in serious trouble."

"If we were to go back to the levels before the recession, we would need at least 11 million new jobs. That’s 11 million more than we have now...We are in serious trouble here."
