The Last Hour
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).

Roman Empire Slaughtered by Their Own Paid Assassins. Professional protectors Demanded Their Pensions.Submitted by Mark Twain on Sun, 08/31/2014 - 22:06
Securing police pensions... in the time limit set by Rome... 20 years. Using force, or just the threat of force... to secure pensions is common... Enforcers routinely back up their requests with their force.
New Concept App using Crowdfunding Campaign to develop concept.
Here's how it works: You encounter police in some capacity. You launch the app. You get an attorney on Video Call and the entire call is saved securely offsite for later use as Evidence.
Here is an Interesting Story from the comment section of the CopBlock page:
Potential Complaint about App:"...I've never seen or heard of someone being successfully defended from civil rights violations by their lawyer over the phone..."
It's Sunday afternoon, the sun finally came out and its been shining down for hours. The sky's blue and perfectly clear now, but earlier in the day when it was still dark it rained. At noon the humidity and outside temperatures were higher than normal. It was miserably sticky; the kind of weather where your clothes glue to your skin and you can't get cool, no one wants to be outside.
By 3:00 the pools of rain water have dried up and people are starting to come out into their yards and the streets again. I'm on my way home from walking my dogs. The smell of ribs grilling over apple wood drifts through the air to me. I pass a family gathered together for a picnic in the neighborhood park.
Dad's hanging back in the shade of a big Cottonwood tree, working the grill and sneaking sips from a sweating bottle—He's in the midst of taking a long pull of beer—when he sees me passing by. He makes a move to hide the bottle. I've disturbed him, intruded into that sacred space he's found in front of the grill. It's a space filled with wisps of smoke curling up to chase away the twin ghosts of work and worry. The disturbance is brief. Presently a wave of ease settles over his face. Everything about him returns to the way it was before I came by. He seems to be saying "Ahhh fuck it, it's Sunday afternoon and I'm here to enjoy myself" as he raises the bottle to his lips again.
The past few years have been a wild psychological ride for me. I went from being someone who was very happy with the system, one who even supported Obama in 2008 to someone who was shocked into reality from 2010 to present. The DP is responsible to a large extent for my awakening as I've shared in other posts... but it was the twitter anarchists who got me into circles interacting with libertarians and eventually guided me to this place. that's more of a side-note but I guess it can serve as an introduction.

DALLAS — Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Pence, Rick Perry and Ben Carson all sounded like presidential candidates in weekend speeches to conservative activists here for a conference organized by an influential Koch-backed group.
The would-be candidates touted their small-government bona fides and hammered prospective Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama on issues ranging from the Middle East to health care to Obama’s golfing.
Everyday Ted Cruz sounds like another Bush family member!
My 18-year-old Siamese has taken to thinking of the floors as her toilet. It started with pooping everywhere; now she's peeing as well.
Arizona Senator John McCain, (who never saw a war he didn't love), is advocating loudly for more U.S. military intervention against ISIS, and warned that they may be the "biggest threat ever" to the United States!
But the fact is - if we simply FOLLOW OUR CONSTITUTION, then no one can ever claim that we are suddenly a Muslim nation (or a Jewish nation, Hindu nation, Christian nation, Ammish nation, Buddhist nation etc etc).

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.
Update: Kent Hovind gets more charges, Eric Holder to prosecute. Government doesn't want him out of prison.Submitted by wraiththirteen on Thu, 08/28/2014 - 23:36
Personally Kent Hovind is the man who brought me to the liberty movement and now that he is about out of prison the state is taking him back to court to give him more prison time.
Eric Holder is bringing charges against Kent for frivolous law suits
If you want to see some of the charges read this. http://2peter3.com/Blogs/22Update.pdf
After you read the lawsuits Kent has filed I would imagine even the Hovind hates in the liberty movement will come to like him.
It's long been true that teachers had to watch what they say in the classroom,(for example, a history teacher mentioning the benefits true Christianity brought, or a science teacher mentioning the evidence of intelligent design).... while the students had more liberty. Now the students are feeling the jackboot of statism on their backs as well. John Whitehead, of the Rutherford Institute and author of A Government of Wolves lists several ways the student is being treated more like a dissident from a police state, and less like a free citizen.
