The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is sending out letters telling gun owners to turn over their rifles and shotguns — or else face the consequences.
New York City’s ban on rifles and shotguns that hold more than five rounds is now being enforced, according to a letter the NYPD is sending out to targeted city gun owners.
I was walking home one evening and came upon a clearly depressed man standing at the edge of a bridge, looking like he was about to jump. I called out to him to wait, and ran over to see what was the matter.
"It's this country," he lamented. "It's falling into ruin and there's nothing I can do about it. The election was the last straw. I don't want to live on this planet anymore."
"Well cheer up," I said. "We're all in this together. Say, are you a conservative, or a libertarian?"
"A libertarian," he said.

In Detroit, Rand Paul says justice system treats minorities unfairly
The senator from Kentucky had an important question for Republicans in Michigan.
“How are you supposed to make child support payments if you’ve been in prison, and the best job you can get is $9 an hour?” Sen. Rand Paul asked, wearing a suit and tie at the opening of a new GOP office on Livernois Avenue in Detroit.
Looks like they've banned all genetically modified except papaya. Being it was below zero this morning on my thermometer and never been there before despite wife twisting arm, maybe its time to go!...and search for a non-gm papaya grower on Kauai(where I've wanted to go...world's best coffee, from my experience).
Good news in a time when good news is hard to find...
Scary. Insane. Ridiculous. Invasive. Wrong. The Washington Post reports that the FBI has had the ability to secretly activate a computer's camera "without triggering the light that lets users know it is recording" for years now. What in the hell is going on? What kind of world do we live in?
"My email inbox and mailbox filled with vitriolic rebukes from pastors and Christians. I was called just about every dirty name in the book and relegated to the depths of the damned–and those were the mild ones."
Reason magazine and CATO suck! They get some things right, but they are total establishment shills on important issues.
Are they saying there is no libertarian argument for refusing to have someone stick a needle in your arm and dump heavy metals and "weakened" viruses?
Or are they saying there is no libertarian argument against forcing someone to use a product? Big Pharmacy certainly wants everyone vaccinated.
Somebody made a thread over at FreedomWorks because they were concerned about the Atlas V launching another secret payload off the coast of Cali. Reasoning doesn't seem to work with many at FreedomWorks, so I have resorted to calling them out and embarrassing them, just as I do at my local meetings (with good success I might add). Here is my response:
"From The Washington Times:
The Pentagon has loosened its guidelines on avoiding civilian casualties during drone strikes, modifying instructions from requiring military personnel to “ensure” civilians are not targeted to encouraging service members to “avoid targeting” civilians."...................."In addition, instructions now tell commanders that collateral damage “must not be excessive” in relation to mission goals, according to Public Intelligence, a nonprofit research group that analyzed the military’s directives on drone strikes.
I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at age 4. I have had run-ins and flare-ups in my 35 years, some serious and some fleeting. February 2005 saw me off work for a month with knees swollen the size of cantaloupes; drained three times to levels that astounded my Rheumatologist.
In 2011 I gave up on Medicine and Big Pharma. I was taking Enbrel at $100/shot/week self administered. I decided to make my own cure and became Vegan. I have had very minor if any problems since but for the last two weeks my right elbow has been seized to the hindrance of expansion limited to 150% of 180%. One thing my "condition" has taught me: pain doesn't hurt as bad as a quiet conscience.
Thank you for sharing and caring and letting me be a part of this amazing group of brilliant and world-changing personas.
I love you all.
Peace and Love always.
