You Are Not Trayvon Martin
His death wasn’t about race, guns, or your pet issue. It was about misjudgment and overreaction—exactly what we’re doing now to the verdict.

Despite having had their final showdown in Congress last year, the war of words between Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and the champion of liberty Ron Paul continues on.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., sounded a familiar anti-war note during a Wednesday hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the confirmation of Samantha Powers - President Obama's nominee for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.
During the hearing, Paul explained that he was concerned by the multiple U.S. military interventions around the world - specifically in Syria.

"The best part is Larken's short video-within-a-video that starts around 14:02, revealing the true horror of a society without government. If you get tired of the "interview," skip ahead to view it. Hilarious."
I totally agree and should have included something similar initially.
Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner Jr. (R-Wis.), who sponsored the Patriot Act, objected strongly to the actions of the FISA court and the administration. He later warned that there are not enough votes in the House now to renew Section 215 when the law is revisited. “It’s got to be changed,” he said. “And you’ve got to change how you operate 215 . . . or you’re not going to have it anymore.”
A redneck with a bucket full of live fish, was approached recently by a game warden in Texas as he started to drive his boat away from a lake. The game warden asked the man, "May I see your fishing license please?"
"Naw, sir," replied the redneck. "I don't need none of them there papers. These here are my pet fish."
"Yep. Once a week, I bring these here fish o'mine down to the lake and let 'em swim 'round for a while. Then when I whistle, they swim right back into my net and I take 'em home."
"What a line of baloney....you're under arrest."
And lawmakers want drones patrolling our every city and town?
The Air Force closed Highway 98 west of Panama City and east of Mexico Beach because of fires from the crash. Officials say the drone has a limited, 24-hour battery life and will be inactive after the battery is depleted.

In this weeks edition of TSA Tuesdays we take a step outside the TSA’s comfort zone of the airport, and into the courtroom! Last week the TSA lost an appeal seeking to reject a ruling that they had violated the First Amendment rights of college student Aaaron Tobey when they called police and had him arrested and charged with disorderly for removing his shirt at a TSA checkpoint, underneath which he had written the 4th Amendment. The charges were later dropped, but the Rutherford Institute filed a lawsuit on behalf of Tobey. From their report on the judge’s decision:
Why Can't We Party Like It's 1905?
FREEMANSPERSPECTIVE · Jul 16th, 2013
When writing historical things, I try to include perspective from people who actually lived through the events. And for money issues in the US, I’m able to do that back to about 1905.
So, do you think life was nasty, brutish, and short in 1905? That there were poor and starving people falling dead on every street corner?
