On Friday afternoon, a fully loaded logging truck collided with a tourist train, killing the truck driver.
I send out a prayer to all involved and pray for a safe weekend for all truckers, especially our patriots in DC.

Syria in Crisis: Ravi Zacharias on Turmoil in the Middle East
Can anyone comment on this guy?
Evan Jenkins: After seventeen years as a Democrat serving in West Virginia's state legislature, I am leaving Barack Obama's party to become a Republican and run for Congress against Nick Rahall. West Virginia is under attack from President Obama and a Democratic Party that our parents and grandparents would not recognize.

Podunk Prosecutors Seek Gag Order Against Eight-Grader Arrested Over NRA Shirt

The case of the rural West Virginia eighth-grader who was suspended and arrested in late April after he refused to remove a t-shirt supporting the National Rifle Association just keeps getting weirder.
Officials are now warning people to be on the lookout for a device that could pose dangerous health and contamination risks to the public.
A portable gauge containing dangerous radioactive material fell off the back of a truck in West Virginia and officials are offering a reward for the missing device.
The truck was transporting the device for the Pennsylvania firm Valley Quarries Inc. – a company licensed to possess and use the gauge. The company had been using the instrument in West Virginia at the time it was lost, and is desperately seeking to find it
It seems so much furor has been created by Rand Paul's recent statements, and upon further inspection, it seems to be little more than poorly paraphrasing a previous example laid out during his filibuster.
The statement that caused all this goes as follows...
"If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and fifty dollars in cash. I don't care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him."
If we look to his filibuster, the same situation is outlined as follows....
We apologize for the diversions into gun politics lately. Not our bailiwick, others do it better and the NRA is going to be all over this like ugly on an ape, but there are some really insidious things in the Manchin-Toomey deal just struck.

Nothing brings Democratic and Republican senators together like some time alone on a yacht, says Sen. Mark S. Kirk.
Sadly, the current state politics in West Virginia do not reflect the citizenry as a whole. This state is filled with patriots and liberty-minded folks, but the upper levels of the state (governor, majority of delegates) are working hard against parental rights.
Very strange drill taking place in West Virginia: http://wvmetronews.com/drill-to-prep-for-mass-evacuation/
They claim it is a drill responding to a possible flood but that makes no sense when you look up where they expect a flood.
They are expecting a major event that will cause thousands (or millions) of people to evacuate their homes and pass through the 10 WV counties listed. The "even" must come from the east (Washington DC) because nobody would travel through those areas coming from any other direction.

What acts of passive resistance should be done? Here are some suggestions to get started.
Use only pre 1964 U.S silver in transactions preventing inflation. In my business I would sell a $25 item for a silver dollar for instance.
Don't register firearms.
Stop using credit cards.
Refusal to abide by federal laws of many kinds. I don't want to get a knock at my door but you get the idea.
Formation of state militias.
The fight continues in West Virginia against the state legislature and Dept of Health. West Virginia is currently one of only two states that do not allow religious or philosophical vaccination exemptions for public school children, and medical exemptions are extremely rare. (Mississippi is the other.) In fact, if you do not vaccinate, parents can be charged with a misdemeanor. Students are already being pulled from school based on non-vaccination.
I was suddenly awakened at 4:30AM and this idea came to me.
