Atlanta City Council approves law to regulate Art on Private Property

So this caused a stir a few months back in Atlanta. There was an uproar in the community here because the city has a HUGE arts community (murals in particular). So they did what Government does best, stall and pass later in secrecy. This "law" they're passing will give the government the right to define "art" lol.

Next week I'll be speaking in front of the council against this law. Wish me luck.

Ryan Dawson Exposes We Are Change's Luke Redowski


http://youtu.be/6PfzbrGAfZI In this interview with a member of We Are Change, Ryan discusses Luke Redowski, the main activist, but not the founder of We Are Change. Seems Luke has been using donations to We Are Change for personal benefit. He also details the lack of meaningful attention from Luke and Alex Jones to the real agents behind 9/11.

Edward Snowden is Becoming More Dangerous Every Minute.

I watched the interview with Snowden by Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig (thank you, DP member “telepathic” for posting). It was fascinating.

Ask yourselves a question: One year ago would Snowden have been interviewed by an academia member from an American university, much less an esteemed institution like Harvard? The answer is – no, and the reason is simple. After information detrimental to the NSA was released in 2013 by Snowden, the Feds put forth quite an effort to demonize and vilify Snowden in whatever way they could. Government officials, military leaders, politicians, and every other tax-dollar parasite you can think of were on the same side with the exception of few. Without the public knowing what the fallout from the 2013 revelations would be, one could understand why contact with a whistleblower like Snowden may prove to be taboo.

The shockwave of negative notions regarding Snowden propagated by our government hit the media. Instead of the term “whistleblower” (which Snowden has obviously earned the title of) the media resorted to the pejorative, “leaker.” After all, the term “whistleblower” had heroic connotations and a hero Snowden was not in the eyes of Federal Government parasites. To them he was a traitor, a villain who cowardly refused to “man up” as frat-tastic John Kerry put it to come home and face a fair trial.

What is my 'Status'?

I am about to enter a world that is both mind blowing scary and promising at the same time. I'm about to go to Court.

I've heard a great deal and read a little about this Sovereign Man idea, I like it, but people who use it seem to go to jail. I don't like that. So I pulled out my handy dandy Black's Law Dictionary 9th Edition and I looked up the CAPITUS DIMINUTIO definitions. I see that they are all about one's 'Status'. So I looked that up.

A message for all you folks that film cops (UPDATED)

I am not a cop and am in no way affiliated with law enforcement. Having said that, I have mixed emotions about these Libertarian "activists" that film cops in public places just for the hell of it. I KNOW it's your right. I KNOW it's legal, but I think law enforcement members deserve respect just the same as a private citizen and all too often, I don't think the motives of these activists are pure. Common sense would tell you: don't F with the cops. Do cops always act accordingly and not abuse the law?

I Love the Atheists, Christians, and Religious Fundamentalists

Seems like there’s been an awful lot of intolerance, hatred and trolling going on at the Daily Paul lately. I dread looking at the comment section anytime a topic has been posted having to do remotely with anything religious.

Ebola can travel in airborne particals paramedics are warned

I read this site every day but this is my first post. I am a paramedic in Georgia and recently we were told to watch this video about ebola. They are telling EMS workers that ebola can be aerosolised through vomit particals, or through the mist in a breathing treatment. We are advised to not intubate them,and to forgo the breathing treatments. This is obviously in stark contrast to what the general public is told about the transmission of ebola. This is the video that details it.

No charges against SWAT officers who maimed toddler during raid

Georgia law enforcement officers responsible for a bungled SWAT raid that left a toddler burned and disfigured will not face criminal charges, a grand jury has decided. The case is now being reviewed by federal officials.

News of the decision first broke on Monday, when a 23-person grand jury in Habersham County, Georgia, called the investigation “hurried and sloppy” but chose not to indict any officials involved in the SWAT operation’s planning or execution, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Let Me Vent about Affirmative Action

I work at a fairly large consulting firm in the U.S. and when I joined the workforce several years ago I had no idea what the effects of affirmative action were. It’s an idea that sounds great – give the little guy a chance and we’ll all be on a level playing field, right? Not so much.

NOTHING is getting better in this country

I’m so depressed. Is it just me or does it seem like NOTHING is getting better in this country? The wars, the debt, the crime, the police brutality, government overreach, etc… It seems like for the last few years things have continued to spiral downward and NO end is in sight. Think of the scandals that have come to light in Washington – the NSA, DOJ spying on reporters, Lois Lerner and the IRS, Fast and Furious and Eric Holder, etc…WHERE IS JUSTICE? WHY AREN’T PEOPLE GOING TO PRISON?

Woman arrested for possessing spoon covered with dried Spaghettios

Posted on September 25, 2014 by Site Staff

GAINESVILLE, GA — An innocent woman had several months of her life destroyed when she was arrested and charged with a felony because of a spaghetti-encrusted spoon found in her possession.

Ashley Gabrielle Huff, 23, had no criminal history and insisted that “there’s no way in hell” that there could have been any drugs in her possession during a traffic stop in July. Nonetheless, a Gainesville police officer honed in on a spoon that was “on her or near her” in the vehicle in which she was riding as a passenger.
