Immigration reform is a red herring

While I vowed to myself that I would quit writing about politics, I cannot sit idly by as I witness fellow libertarians nibble on the devil's candy.

The deafening call to "secure the borders" is a red herring. How could one believe otherwise? When has the marble building occupiers of Washington DC had the best interests of the People in mind?

Awesome: Hyundai's new ‘anti-speed camera technology’ coming to cars in 2015

Korean auto maker Hyundai has developed technology that will warn you when you approach a stretch of road that’s covered by speed cameras. And if you happen to miss the warning for some reason, the car will gently apply the brakes for you and automatically slow the car down to the posted speed limit.

If you’re wondering if this technology will run afoul of the law in states where radar detectors are illegal, the answer is probably not. Why not a yes or no?

Anyone on the DP a half serious woodworking hobbyist?

When I am not at work or on the DP, my passion is weekend woodworking. I am starting to get a halfway versatile tool collection together and eventually plan to have every piece of furniture in my house be self built. I am no pro, but I have accumulated a lot of theoretical knowledge through watching youtube videos.

I recently built my son a bed and corner tv stand painted in Seattle Seahawks colors (indoctrination starts young). With the nightly jam sessions for the musicians among us, I thought those of us that create art through wood might be interested in sharing ideas.

Government & Factions

Originally published - Mon, 06/03/2013 - 21:21, under the title "Government (I spent a lot of time on this please read it all the way through)"

- - -

I started writing this 6 years ago. This was a concept that i had before a found that there were liberty minded individuals in this country, although my understanding of freedom and inalienable rights differ from the general consensus Please read it and critique. I posted another lengthy post year a month ago and it got very little reception. I would go elsewhere but i am not sure where my ideas might be accepted. I spent a lot of time on it and i think it offers a different perspective on the ideas of natural rights:

It ought to be asserted that no political entity has ever managed or regulated man as capably and competently as the individual has managed himself. This basic human instinct has caused humankind to prevail over every menace to her existence. Throughout the ages the will of man, most importantly the will of the individual has set mankind on a path of remarkable advancement. Advancement in all fields in fact, to the extent that through most paradigms history is characterized by advancement and progression. The indomitable spirit of man, coupled with his ability to understand his own suffering and the reason to employ means through which to prevent it, has caused the ascendancy of an existence the likes of which nature has never seen. To incorporate this into the larger scheme, one must consider the implications of man's aptitude for success. It is an accomplishment of mankind inasmuch as mankind shares the same characteristics as its elements. For the ascendancy of mankind is a direct answer to the ability of the individual to attain his own ends. The unification of individuals is as much a product of reason as their competition against one another. It is an arrangement, an intangible contract between a people that outlines the manner in which their coalescence will benefit the private interest of the singular. No man would submit to the will of another man arbitrarily. This invaluable check on mankind ensures his interdependence on each and every aspect of his environment. The individual good precedes the greater good. The greater good is its consequence.

Why the hell is everybody complaining about Obama?

The Senate SUCKS just as bad, if not worse!

The conservative news channels want to blame obama and, HELL YES, he IS to blame.

But lets don't forget the other branches of our worthless government. The other guys with the 12% approval, excuse me, 88% DISAPPROVAL rating.

The NOT so supreme court also SUCKS!

There are 545 people responsible for EVERYTHING WRONG with this country. Not just one although he sucks, clearly, without a plan.

REPLACE THEM ALL NOW!

ABC News tells viewers that scenes of destruction in Gaza are in Israel

Diane Sawyer Misrepresents Footage of Palestinian Bombing Victims as Israelis


http://youtu.be/k-m4PlW-KgI

More than fifty Palestinians have been killed and another 450 wounded since Monday in Israel’s ongoing assault on the besieged Gaza Strip, dubbed “Operation Protective Edge” by the Israeli army.

As usual, mainstream media outlets are straining to paint Israel as the victim, defending its people against irrational Palestinian rocket fire.

New Kansas law would make complaints against police "proven false" a felony

The Kansas House Standing Committee on Corrections and Juvenile Justice has introduced a bill that will require private citizens who file complaints against police officers to sign an affidavit, acknowledging that if their allegations are proven false, they can be charged with perjury, which is a felony charge.

Furthermore, this bill prohibits a Kansas law enforcement agency from opening an investigation into a complaint if another law enforcement agency has already investigated the complaint and found in favor of the officer.

The People know they aren't really free

Despite the State pretending otherwise via mainstream talking heads, the People now are coming to realize how severe the encroachment on freedom has been over the last decade here in the united States. Perhaps, they may even begin Startpaging "Jekyll Island" or "Iran 1953" and finally see the long train of abuses extend far beyond the last 10 years, and many of the "problems" faced today are simply blowback.

How books are banned in the United States

We don't burn books in America, can't do that because that would expose the hatred of the First Amendment.

No, we do it in a much "smarter" way. Here's how we go about keeping truth's concealed.
