The Last Hour
In Liberty... JC444 @ 1:31
Stay vigilant, my friends... Peace!
I can't with full conscience blame the police totally for all the incidents that have recently taken place. From the killing of twelve year old Tamir Rice in Ohio, to the actions taken against protesters during Occupy Wall Street, the police are not the only ones to blame. I would even go further and say the police have very little blame placed upon them. The politicians are the ones to blame for one hundred percent of the events that have taken place these last few years. Sure, the police have some responsibility in a moral aspect to respect their fellow man and women by refusing to comply with the orders demanded by politicians even if that sacrifices their jobs. We the people also are to blame for demanding government do something about everything and not demanding them to do nothing about something.
Politicians are elected to govern within the restrictions set by the federal and state constitutions. For the last few decades or more, politicians have violated that restriction for political gain. They want the people to see that they are doing something. When something horrible happens, the politicians are right there to promise new laws and restrictions and the people allow this to happen.
The issue today with all these incidence involving police is a direct consequence of years of laws that are nonsense. From the war on drugs to the attempted soda ban, these are "laws" that create conflict. The politicians write the "laws" and they send the police to do their dirty work. Naturally, the ones who are seen as aggressors will hold the blame such as the police are now, and the politicians who caused the aggression will use the situation to their advantage when the people cry for them to do something, which is also happening now.
Marching in the streets all day long,
Writing a brilliant, passionate song,
Fighting injustice, opposing what's wrong,
Wondering why we're not that strong,
Wondering why with all of our reading,
We're being led and not leading,
Working real hard, doing all we can,
We're still ruled by Them and The Man,
Still trying to do better every day,
Still lost along the way,
Still searching for something new,
Still striving for the breakthrough,
It will come when you pray for me and I pray for you,
It will come when you pray for me and I pray for you.
We've all seen a stone thrown into the water create ripples across the entire pond. And the ripples keep on going across the entire universe.
That is what that whole Beatles song was about, Across the Universe. Jai guru deva om (जय गुरुदेव ॐ), which roughly translates to: "Glory to the shining remover of darkness!"
Jai guru deva om. Be that stone. Go out and remove some darkness in the world. Don't wait for it to happen. Go out and do it, even if it is just for one person. Go make a positive ripple in this world.
What a twist that would be. Can't say as it'd surprise me but I would love to see all of our "goons" with egg on their collective faces...
Love this; Rand on the Kelly File calls Rubio rude and intemperate; his interview starts at about 1:35. I can't seem to embed videos from Fox News so here is the link...if someone else can embed this, please do!
Why Liberty Lives in New Hampshire - Marc Clair and Mike Vine Discuss on the Lions of Liberty Podcast!Submitted by Marc Clair on Thu, 12/18/2014 - 11:44
In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I am joined by Mike Vine of the Free State Project to discuss the film “101 Reasons Liberty Lives in New Hampshire.” Mike describes how he became a libertarian at the young age of 13, and what eventually drove him to move to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project. Mike and I discuss a few of the reasons presented in the film, and how the Free State Project could be a model for creating political change in other states and even countries.
Putin gave a Press Conference today that is already being assailed with propaganda and outright lies by the mainstream media. Much of it is being taken out of context and twisted to fit the "New Cold War" mentality being dumped on the American people.
I have no idea why, but my Dad started watching Ron Paul videos on YouTube yesterday. I was in the living room a few feet away, and imagine my surprise when I heard Ron Paul's appearance on The View playing from Dad's computer speakers. He hates The View, and until yesterday, I was pretty sure he hated Ron Paul because Fox News told my Dad Ron Paul was anti-military (sigh). Just a couple of days ago he was lamenting the millions of GOP voters who stayed home rather than vote for Romney.
Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s execution-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
