I am arrested - legalizeliberty

My Dear Friends.

This is my first opportunity to tell what is happening to me.
On Nov 24 late evening I was arrested by police and send to detention center under "mental health act".

All I did was protest the participation of Canadian troops in illegal and fake war in Afghanistan.
I stopped the traffic on Robson street in the heart of the tourist district in Vancouver Canada - pre-Olympic Games sweep caught me like a salmon in it's net.

I was shouting out "stop the war stop the killing shut down the military industrial complex"...it took cops 5 minutes to stop my protest...remember the Chinese guy stopping those tanks on Tiananmen Square? - that was my idea - one man symbolic protest against the war...

Because of some good Christians I have a 1 hour chance to tell you what is going on - Thank you for your prayers - must go back to the center where my money and all ID's are...

God Bless you all*))
in Liberty

Update - Dec 4th I am told I will be detained up until Wednesday 9th...sheer horror...please whoever can please donate to Oath Keepers - Restore Liberty - Oath Keeper Money Bomb Dec 4th http://www.dailypaul.com/node/117790

I might have been pissed off as a tourist driving too UNLESS you WERE wearing a Ron Paul shirt or a sign...

Then I would have JOINED you!!!

Kick some ass

my Slavic bro. There is nothing they can do to us now that we already did not experience in communism.

Hey Carlin

You sound like you might be fairly smart and do make some good points, but everyone here knows how much LL cares and works.
Go ahead and make your point with the mindset that we're all on the same team. Crazy that we need a team to stay as free individuals!

But... you DID give the discussion legs! Good job!

Guess I have to follow his lead...

I can't find the post from last spring re. War is a Racket (Smedley Memorial Badminton Tourney). Help? Should be relatively easy to do!? We have a great sport and social club with contact set up. May as well use it for something good. Obviously the more Canadian content the more inclusive it would be for my area. Are there good Canadian sources of literature that I could get? I wouldn't mind naming it after Smedley or is there someone Canadian who could carry the honor. Appropriate date in February for the Tournament?

a little help for you


BTW - where are you in Canuckistan?

Thanks Waffle

I'm in Nanaimo. Are you suggesting Afganistan, Pakistan, then Canuckistan? Know why I'm scared now?

Very happy to hear you are safe.

The mental illness thing is what they try to get many people on who oppose their views. Like the character Angelina Jolie plays in the movie "The Changeling" (?) who challenges the police. This is so common. Please keep safe.

You "stopped the traffic" ?

That is a crazy and disrespectful thing to do. If you're going to protest, do it without restricting the freedom of other people. If this is what you did, you deserve to be arrested. You stood in front of cars to stop them with delusions of grandeur imagining that you were like the guy in front of the tanks at Tiananmen Square? If this what you did, I would think you're mentally ill too. I have to break it to you, those are not enemy vehicles. They are normal people going to work, picking up their kids from school, going out to eat, and so on. I just hope you weren't wearing a Ron Paul shirt , which would be an embarrassment.

Where do you draw the line

Where do you draw the line on "restricting the freedom of other people"? That kind of thinking is a dangerous, slippery slope...did the protesters at Tianamen Square restrict the freedom of those driving the tanks that ran them over? How about the protesters at Kent State? Did they block sidewalks on campus or something?

As far as I am concerned, what Legalizeliberty did was an act of civil disobedience, pure and simple. It isn't what I would do to protest, but courage takes many forms. It's the in-your-face kind of action that is going to get attention and eventually get results.

Whether or not you like it, we are on the road to revolution. And revolution ain't polite or pretty. Hell, I hope he DID have a Ron Paul t-shirt on...

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
Thomas Jefferson

Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietam servitutem. ("I prefer the tumult of liberty to the quiet of servitude"). Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 30 January 1787.

Amazing you can't see the difference.

Protesters stopping tanks at Tianamen Square, is stopping government vehicles coming in to assault them.

Innocent civilians are just that, innocent civilians. They aren't the enemy. They are innocent people driving their cars and should be treated as such. If you violate their right to travel in order to make a point, you're not better than any fascist setting up a checkpoint.

Civil disobedience is actions taken against the government, not against your fellow citizens.

You sir....

.... are a complete knob.

LegalizeLiberty did Something.
What have you done?

Hey Archons', we are taking our planet back and there's nothing you can do about it!

Ron Paul would disagree I think

Ron Paul said once, "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take - education, conventional political action, or even Peaceful Civil disobedience, to bring about the necessary changes."

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

That's not civil disobedience.

Civil disobedience is when you do things like refuse to pay income tax. It's an action against the government, not against other people. Violating the rights of other people is not "civil disobedience." It's simply violating other people's rights.

Carlin-Equities please contact me and I will either agree

or disagree with this post and tell you this was an idiots post. Sorry but this was absolutely the wrong place to post this. Civil disobedience is where the individual finds it. That is Liberty. That is standing up for your beliefs. I personally would never stand between someone standing up for their beliefs. Just so happens, I trust Legalizeliberty more than I would trust you or anyone else. My reason for this is because he has more faith in our Constitution than most people in this country. I personally salute him and his efforts.

Now I must ask What have YOU done to promote liberty and freedom of the individual to surpass Legalizeliberty in EFFORT. Show me and I will support you as well. I just happen to know this individual gave, and is giving more that the SHEEPLE(idiots) in this country.

Trust me I am not looking for conflict for that solves nothing but, this animosity towards LegalizeLiberty was just a little much. This individual has much heart and right now the world needs way more heart.

Amen to that, Jim. Legalizeliberty has a heart of gold and some hearts in this world could sure use a Midas touch.

Ok I'm convinced

the diagnosis of mental illness was correct. Let me take a wild guess, you also believe in chemtrails and that 9/11 was an inside job. And you think they're putting stickers on mailboxes to know who to send to Fema camps. Am I right?

You are no activist of freedom if this is the extent of your

mentality. You suffer from the most severe of mental illnesses - its called denial of something even when it is right in your face - you will deny it. The mkultra mind control has been a complete success in your case sir!

It seems you are 'delusional' and blind to a cause that is thousands of years old.

Go back to sleep and leave us who are awake alone!





Mr Carlin are you agent of

Mr Carlin are you agent of CIA or FBI ?


Carlin, you are definitely

Carlin, you are definitely not someone I'd want as a backup for me if I were ever in trouble. You brought up the point about blocking traffic, all the while ignoring the courage it took LL to bring attention to the war in Afghanistan all by himself. But you couldn't even stop there. You then had to spout off uncalled for, petty, and snide comments when no one else agreed with you. This behavior is typical of a bully and a jerk. You can be better than that.

Knock it off Carlin.

Dunno that I agree with stopping traffic, either, but your attempt to marginalize him for his protest of Canadian participation in the BS war is pathetic.

...as is your attempt to bring ridicule upon those concerned about other things you mention.

I did no such thing.

I said nothing about what he was protesting. I'm talking about his method of protesting.

And those other things deserve ridicule. They are things Dr. Paul never expresses belief in. The truthers and chemtrail people, fema camp people, all try to preempt Dr. Paul's message.

Bugger off...

Get back to your sitcoms and fox news.

If you honestly believe the official government sponsored conspiracy theory of 911 then you sir are beyond daft. Apply Occam's razor, inside job is the obvious result.

Another thing, Chemtrails are a fact. it's called Weather Modification and has been around for years now. They seed clouds with aluminum oxide and barium salts. Look it up.

Don't be such a twit. We don't need any censoring on this site, we get enough of that from this tyrannical system we are trying to break free from.

Hey Archons', we are taking our planet back and there's nothing you can do about it!

But that is why he was protesting.

YOU created the doubt as to whether your gripe was really just about method when you chose to tie in ridicule of causes. His cause was objecting to Canadian troops participating in the Afghanistan war.

If you did not mean to imply anything more than objecting to his method, then you should not have tied in causes here.

Also, if it is simply his method to which you object, you went pretty far out of your way here to attach an assessment of mental illness. Bad judgement call maybe, but nothing here warranted your label of mental illness.
