On the surface, the cases appear nearly identical: Michael Brown and Dillon Taylor, two young, unarmed men with sketchy criminal pasts shot to death by police officers two days apart.
But while the world knows of the highly publicized situation involving 18-year-old Mr. Brown, whose Aug. 9 death in Ferguson, Missouri touched off violence, protests and an angry national debate, most people outside Utah have never heard of 20-year-old Mr. Taylor.
Remember when Obama wanted to do a "limited surgical strike" on Syria's Assad and the people rose up in protest? That was one of the only times that I ever called my congressman about an issue and his secretary was saying that he had received hundreds of call like mine. It was amazing to see Americans rise up and say no to the Syrian War.
People were asking me about it so here it is. About two and a half years ago I bought my first house. I was twenty one and I hadn't the slightest idea of what to do with the 0.2 acres it was on. Over the course of the next two years I figured out how to turn the 1600sqft of land that wasn't covered by concrete into a productive yet very low maintenance farm.
The 16 main personality types has probably been the most fun thing that my wife and I have studied together this year. I feel like sharing because all of my friends that care the most (or at least actively talk about it) share a letter.
Essentially the way it works is you are either an (I) introvert or an (E) extrovert, a(N) intuitive thinker or a (S) observant thinker, a (T) thinking type or a (F) feeling type, and you are either a more (J) judging type or a (P) prospecting type.
So I watched the "The Hidden Secrets of Money" on youtube series and read at least a hundred articles and a book or two on how silver and gold are real money. I even went out and invested a large portions of my savings in precious metals.
Yesterday I went out and bought myself my first ounce of Platinum. The store I usually go to was sold out. I was able to find just one eagle ounce out of the four places that I called in the Salt Lake area.
I'm one of the new people from that one day that the "Ark door" was opened and we were allowed to subscribe again. Believe it or not I have been following the site since at least 2011 during the run up to the 2012 republican primaries. The DP came up when I was searching for more information on Ron Paul and I've been coming back ever since.
Now I feel like I should explain myself a bit. It wasn't really my style to pay a subscription fee to chat it up with a bunch of people that were probably way smarter than me in the comments and to vote on posts. I may have tried to sign up once but registration was only open on Wednesdays and by the time I was serious about doing it the "Ark" door was closed.
When it was finally opened back at the end of July I was excited to finally contribute my part (intellectually and financially). That is when I learned that subscribing could be free anyway. The irony right? I could have been pestering you people for years! Anyway, I decided to go ahead and contribute some money anyway (maybe I'll make a post about contributing to causes you believe in later...?) and sure enough the paypal link was broken so I couldn't become a new member after all.
This may have happened to many of the 100 or so people that tried to make an account and couldn't. I just called the number from the email in paypal and got it figured out that way. Michael is pretty great for doing that. He said that I wasn't the only one with this problem so if you didn't make it in and you have that contact info then I'd go for it. I'm so excited to be here!! Thank you for having me!

Homophones, as any English grammarian can tell you, are words that sound the same but have different meanings and often different spellings — such as be and bee, through and threw, which and witch, their and there.

In the not-too-distant future, privacy is a thing of the past. Undeniable rights degrade like the paper they were written upon, and Big Brother has a constant eye on you and your family.
It will take a determined man and an unequaled weapon to make a stand. And explosions. Yeah, lots of explosions.
If trouble was what they were after, they found it.
"OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — One man's quest to explain his brother's mysterious jail cell death 19 years ago has rekindled long-dormant questions about whether others were involved in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
Dog shot and killed during search for toddler:
SALT LAKE CITY — A neighbor's dog was shot and killed during a police search for a 3-year-old Wednesday.
Around 4:30 p.m., Salt Lake City Police Department reported that a 3- year-old boy named Kelby was missing from his home near 2500 South and Fillmore Street. He was found safe in his home just before 5 p.m.
As police searched for the toddler, an officer entered Sean Kendall's yard, felt Kendall's dog, Geist, was aggressive, and shot the dog, police said. Police can lawfully enter private yards during an emergency.

Now, will the Corporatist Govt employees finally 'see' the type of country they've helped turn it into, when it starts attacking them, in earnest??
So Judge.me has closed down.
They recommend net-arb.com
Has anyone had experience with net-arb or are there any other third party arbitration websites? I have some contract work and I will have to turn it down unless I can agree to a third party arbitration.
Thanks to SuccessCouncil for the original post here where I learned about 3rd party arbitration.
Well well well, the criminals are figuring out that all you need to do is dress like the SWAT team when entering a home and the owner wont fight back until its too late. Many DP'ers here foresaw this fallout from the Police State policy and now its coming to fruition. Ironically, the homeowners are better off with the criminals breaking in than if it was the real SWAT team as their dog is still alive and nobody got shot. Notice the police STILL searched the victims house after all this went down:
Gunmen dressed as police invade home, assault resident
This just broke across multiple media channels.
I've been sitting on our internal reports for a few days. I was asked to stand down and NOT draw attention and NOT put out the call for BOTG.
From Carol Bundy:
Please make your way to Blanding Utah this Saturday May 10th 9AM to protest the BLM Closure of Recapture Canyon.
Blanding has been the site of many BLM overreach efforts, including the horrific BLM SWAT team raids that resulted in the deaths of three Blanding residents.
County Commissioner Phil Lyman has organized a peaceful ATV ride into "Recapture Canyon". This Canyon was "temporarily" closed over 7 years ago by the BLM.
You do not need an ATV to participate.
We need to help the people of Blanding re-establish who is in control of the land.
