Roman Empire Slaughtered by Their Own Paid Assassins. Professional protectors Demanded Their Pensions.


Securing police pensions... in the time limit set by Rome... 20 years.
Using force, or just the threat of force... to secure pensions is common... Enforcers routinely back up their requests with their force.

Galt's Gulch Chile, Jeff Berwick responds

Jeff Berwick spills his guts here. Thoughts anyone?

I agree with a lot of what he says. As an entreprenuer myself, he hits on many key points that resonate with me.

Time will tell if he can unfcuk the mess he's in.....

It's my fault.

Those who have been reading some of my internet scribblings over the past months or years know I've been going down a very interesting path. Having graduated with a MASTERS DEGREE from the school of hard knocks in Austrian Economics and political "science" over the last decade I've begun to dig even deeper into an understanding of the very question of life. Heck, we'll see if I am still alive by the end of this blog entry. Yes, I am serious about that (I think I will be... but I'll explain below why I haven't killed myself yet).

Russia Demands Release of MH17 Black Box Investigation

I know there are many who believe the US/NATO/EU story and the Russians/Putin are attempting to deceive us they aren't involved militarily in the Ukraine crisis. But, if that's the case, and the US/NATO/EU's version of the downed MH17 flight is legitimate, why are they refusing to release the 'black box' recordings? The Russians are making a demand that these finding be realeased to the public.

Hey there human being

It's Sunday afternoon, the sun finally came out and its been shining down for hours. The sky's blue and perfectly clear now, but earlier in the day when it was still dark it rained. At noon the humidity and outside temperatures were higher than normal. It was miserably sticky; the kind of weather where your clothes glue to your skin and you can't get cool, no one wants to be outside.

By 3:00 the pools of rain water have dried up and people are starting to come out into their yards and the streets again. I'm on my way home from walking my dogs. The smell of ribs grilling over apple wood drifts through the air to me. I pass a family gathered together for a picnic in the neighborhood park.

Dad's hanging back in the shade of a big Cottonwood tree, working the grill and sneaking sips from a sweating bottle—He's in the midst of taking a long pull of beer—when he sees me passing by. He makes a move to hide the bottle. I've disturbed him, intruded into that sacred space he's found in front of the grill. It's a space filled with wisps of smoke curling up to chase away the twin ghosts of work and worry. The disturbance is brief. Presently a wave of ease settles over his face. Everything about him returns to the way it was before I came by. He seems to be saying "Ahhh fuck it, it's Sunday afternoon and I'm here to enjoy myself" as he raises the bottle to his lips again.

Storing your Silver Safely

Buying silver is something that a lot of people that read this site do so I figured it was about time for a post full of tips, ideas, and advice on how to store your precious metals.

Silver is a hedge against instability but like any physical hedge it could be stolen by thieves, confiscated in a no-knock-raid, or potentially taken by a bank during a bail-in.

There may not be anywhere that your silver is 100% safe so to minimize risk it is important to try and have multiple locations. Even under the worst case scenario you won't lose all of your stashes. Silver that you plan on saving for a longer period of time can be stored in more isolated places.

PCR: The West, The Greatest Cause Of War In Human History, Stands Stripped Of All Legitimacy

By Paul Craig Roberts

The Donetsk National Republic States The Facts

“Every time you come to Russia with a sword, from a sword you will perish.”

The former Russian provinces, which Soviet party leaders carelessly attached to Ukraine at a time when it seemed to make no difference as all were part of the Soviet Union, are now independent republics with their own governments. The West pretends that this isn’t so, because Washington and its puppet capitals don’t recognize the independence of formerly captive peoples. But the West’s opinion no longer counts.

Ohio “Open Carry” Laws Could Spell Murder Charges for Cops who Shot Innocent Man in WalMart

Beavercreek, Ohio – The killing of John Crawford III by police inside Wal-Mart differs from other recent police killings in one substantial manner. It isn’t that the victim was unarmed, carrying only a bb gun obtained from the store’s shelves. It isn’t that Crawford was on the phone when the officers approached him. It is different because even if Crawford had been carrying a rifle in the store, the officers that killed him did not even have cause to detain him, much less shoot him.

Police unions fight to keep military gear for police force

Police associations are beginning a major lobbying push to protect their access to the military equipment that was used against demonstrators in Ferguson, Mo.

Law enforcement groups argue a Pentagon program that provides surplus military gear helps protect the public, and they are gearing up for a fight with lawmakers and the Obama administration over whether it should be continued.

Does the House of Representatives really represent? You decide!

How many people really know how many people one Representative represents? It can vary from State to State, but the average is 700,000+ people.

Do you know when they fixed the amount to 435? Some people debate 1911 or 1929.

Either way, is this really a representative Republic?

I break it all down here:

Virgin Valley High School Harrases Cliven Bundy's Granddaughter

By Ian Whitaker (contact)

Friday, Aug. 29, 2014 | 11:17 a.m.

Citing the "communistic mentality" of county school administrators, Cliven Bundy's son has withdrawn his children from county schools.

Ryan Bundy said he made the decision following a disagreement this week with administrators at Virgin Valley High School, where his daughter was set to attend. School officials refused to let the girl carry a pocket knife on school grounds, citing safety concerns. Bundy said he feels that's a violation of his children's rights, and has decided to pursue education for them elsewhere.

I must be a sociopath, real life trolling, boredom and other thoughts

The past few years have been a wild psychological ride for me. I went from being someone who was very happy with the system, one who even supported Obama in 2008 to someone who was shocked into reality from 2010 to present. The DP is responsible to a large extent for my awakening as I've shared in other posts... but it was the twitter anarchists who got me into circles interacting with libertarians and eventually guided me to this place. that's more of a side-note but I guess it can serve as an introduction.
