Some of the bizarre complications currently plaguing Washington are inherent in any conflict between state and federal government. Marijuana remains a Schedule I prohibited substance under federal law, although US Attorney General Eric Holder has said the Justice Department will allow Washington and Colorado — Amendment 64 there also legalized recreational pot as of January 1 — to proceed unhindered. Some arise due to cumbersome provisions in the Washington law itself. And others from the way the Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) has interpreted its authority to create a new recreational marijuana system.
Have you had a chance to read your state's constitution?
I have not read them all in detail yet but they all seem to follow a similar pattern
The government has total power with only a few "rights" reserved for the individual.
Contrast this with the federal constitution where article 1 section 8 grants only 17 specific powers and the restrictive clauses limits how those powers are used.
(restrictive clauses are found in article 1 section 9 and the first ten amendments)
"Former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg announced on Tuesday the creation of "Everytown for Gun Safety", a major gun-control campaign that will combine some of his previous efforts.
But a pro-gun group has already reserved that page on Facebook. The first post the group made proudly stated that it stole the name of Bloomberg’s group.
Watch Hitler as Bloomberg raging over his defeat by gun owners!
Once we had a thread here that was lost in a site upgrade from years ago, simply titled The Chicken Thread. I believe it was originally Mike Lawson's, but its been a few years, so for now I credit it to him. But to our dismay, The Chicken Thread was lost long ago, during the site upgrades. A few have been re-kindled but just didn't fly.
So, in light of chicken lovers, and people who enjoy providing for oneself and their family, we release a new chicken thread. And now that you can embed pictures, it should be much more fun for our community chicken lovers.
Show us your chickens.
''Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has a slight lead in another New Hampshire poll of potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates. But the poll, released on Friday, revealed that most voters are undecided, and only one percent of those surveyed have decided on a particular candidate.''
How many liberty folks on the Daily Paul are in New Hampshire?
Nevada’s senators sparred Friday on live TV in Las Vegas over the standoff between the federal government and rancher Cliven Bundy.
“What Sen. Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots,” GOP Sen. Dean Heller said during the rare joint appearance on KSNV-TV. “We have a very different view on this.”
Reid said Thursday that the people involved ”who hold themselves out to be patriots, are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists.”
"It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday (4-18-14).
More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil, timber and mineral-rich lands away from the feds.
"It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now."

For four months during the summer of 1787, the Constitutional Convention met “in order to form a more perfect union.” With the country’s legal framework finally drafted, the framers of the Constitution signed the document on September 17, 1787, before sending it to the states for ratification. On the 225th anniversary of the Constitution’s adoption, explore seven surprising facts about the delegates to the Constitutional Convention and their work in Philadelphia.
1. Signing of the Constitution1. Several framers met with untimely deaths.
Was there a curse of the Constitution? Alexander Hamilton was famously killed by Aaron Burr in 1804, but he wasn’t even the first framer of the U.S. Constitution to die in a duel with a political rival. In 1802, North Carolina delegate Richard Spaight was mortally wounded by a dueling pistol fired by sitting congressman John Stanly. Four years later, Virginian George Wythe died of arsenic poisoning, likely at the hand of a debt-riddled grandnephew and heir. Pennsylvania delegate Gouverneur Morris died in 1816 after a ghastly bit of self-surgery in which he unsuccessfully attempted to dislodge a urinary tract blockage with a piece of whale bone, while New York’s John Lansing mysteriously vanished in December 1829 after leaving his Manhattan hotel room to mail a letter.
2. Rhode Island boycotted the Constitutional Convention.
America’s littlest state had a big independence streak. Rhode Island, distrustful of a powerful federal government, was the only one of the 13 original states to refuse to send delegates to the Constitutional Convention. It was a decision that rankled even the normally temperate George Washington, who wrote in July 1787 that “Rhode Island … still perseveres in that impolitic, unjust, and one might add without much impropriety scandalous conduct, which seems to have marked all her public councils of late.” On the condition that a Bill of Rights be included, Rhode Island became the 13th state to ratify the Constitution on May 29, 1790, more than a year after Washington was sworn in as president.

US Terror Drone Strike in Yemen kills at least 6 innocent civilians during extrajudicial murder of 9 al-Qaeda suspectsSubmitted by go213mph on Sat, 04/19/2014 - 10:03
On what authority does the US have to murder individuals who are "suspected" of being bad guys...not to mention the INNOCENT people who always end up being killed during all these extrajudicial murders from above via "signature strikes"? If you don't think the day will come when the Federal Government uses the exact same method to kill "domestic terrorists" like Clive Bundy and all the Oath Keepers out in Navada...you have your head up your ass! These murdering criminals who have usurped our nation must be stopped and held accountable!
...Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman sent a letter to Barack Obama, Department of the Interior Sec. Sally Jewell, and BLM Director Neil Kornze, laying out his position that any such action by the agency would violate the U.S. Constitution.
