• "we the people" are the only ones left to defund obamacare

    Non-participation! Listen, I'm poor and I'd qualify for that socialist program but I will not sign up. I have taken control of my own healthcare. When I do go to the doctor, I pay with FRN's.

    For more on "non participation" see this DP post:
    Oath Keepers, Brandon Smith, Ferguson and the “non-participation principle”

  • Shaaaaaaaa

    Shaaaaa Shameless BUMP!

  • I've never heard that before...

    I like it. I'm forwarding it to my daughter! :-)

  • I've said it here before...

    Cops should only be allowed to drive those little "Smart" cars and they should be totally disarmed.

    I can't think of ANY situation in which I would EVER call the cops. I'm perfectly capable of handling anything that arises but if I ever need backup or assistance in handling some unusual situation...I'd contact a friend or neighbor.

    I will never voluntarily invite an armed thug working for the state to "help me out" with anything. I wish MOST people would start ignoring the "authorities" and treating them just like what they are...a crueler, more violent, more hateful, gang than the mafia.

  • Great Article...I was fixing to post it here myself.

    I left a comment with a link to it under a CNBC article titled: "What millionaires are buying for the holidays"

    (I don't normally go to cnbc or any msm sites but I wanted to look and see what the talking heads were saying about the market falling 266 points today)

    J.Whitehead has become one of my favorite authors.

    What Millionaries are buying for the holidays
    http://www.cnbc.com/id/102253737?trknav=homestack:topnews:14

    My comment was:
    The Game Is Rigged. Most if not all of the current and recent millionaires have achieved their wealth from fraud and through connections to the free flowing money that the FED keeps handing out to the criminals on wall-street.

  • Project Hammer

  • "Protect & Serve" For Plutocracy

  • Wow, golden, I'd never come across that clip

    I guess nothing should surprise me anymore, but that was stunning! CLEARLY these occupations are about little more than resource theft, Graft, and lining the pockets of the MIC and multi-national corps. They don't keep up with the costs of the lives lost or the money spent? Nice...

  • It may appear that people attack christianity more than other

    religions, but I certainly don't know any atheist or free thinker that finds 1 particular religion any more or less legitimate than another. The punishment for apostasy (which in most cases is death) is mostly only carried out in modern times by Muslim fundamentalists so I certainly wouldn't regard Christianity to be quite as destructive to society as Muslim extremists...even though according to the Christian bible...non-believers are to be killed. (Which means, should you and I ever meet, you should kill me.)

    Deuteronomy 17
    If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant; 17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded; 17:4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel; 17:5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

    So, IMHO that's why you often hear people say that Muslims are more religious or more devoted than christians. As deranged as it is...you have to admit that there are far more Muslims that are willing to kill and be killed in the name of their religion than Christians. (actually that may not be true since George W. said god told him to invade Iraq and its estimated that over 1 million have been killed since W heard voices in his head)

    The truth shall make you free, but first it shall make you angry. In reality, every religious person knows that we know that they know that god is not real. You know that. ;-)

  • Only tried it a few times when I was in high school

    Each time I specifically remember "tasting colors". I was not eating or drinking anything most of the time so it was very interesting how I would get the sensation of tasting various colors in my mouth, I guess just by thinking about them.

    Visually I would see lots of very pronounced colors and I'm assuming that having such strong colorful illusions somehow crossed over into my taste sense.

    One time I did it, I had not planned on it and got talked into it kind of on the spur of the moment. We were going to watch an auto race at dirt track outside of Orlando, Fl. That scene was impossible for me to handle. I ended up leaving the stands and sitting in the car until the racing was over. The loud engines and trying to watch all the cars going around in a circle was too uncomfortable/bizarre for me.

    I never had a "bad" or terrifying experience. But, I know of some people that did. You really need to be in a good mood and be able to recognize and control any irrational fears that might pop up during the experience.

  • "The best way to bring her back? BE LIBERTY, yourself"

    Totally Agree! I liked the way Brandon Smith explained the "non-participation principle" in this article I posted here:

    http://www.dailypaul.com/330220/oath-keepers-brandon-smith-f...

    Also, I know that historically peace prevails for a while and then things slide back toward war and tyranny...however, I truly believe that this time could be different. The ability for society to educate themselves and communicate via the internet might, just maybe, be the thing that breaks this vicious cycle.

    Enjoy your day!

  • It is fear that first brought Gods into the world

    "For ages, a deadly conflict has been waged between a few brave men and women of thought and genius upon the one side, and the great ignorant religious mass on the other. This is the war between Science and Faith. The few have appealed to reason, to honor, to law, to freedom, to the known, and to happiness here in this world. The many have appealed to prejudice, to fear, to miracle, to slavery, to the unknown, and to misery hereafter. The few have said, "Think!" The many have said, "Believe!" [The Gods, 1872]

    If God has spoken, why is the world not convinced?

    I have to admit...these posts are tiring and mostly pointless. However, I too am guilty of commenting instead of just ignoring them but its just so hard not to try and help people break through the indoctrination.

    I have to remember that most of my life I wouldn't have dared to question god or the bible. But, anyone that has researched the history of government and the way people have been controlled by kings and rulers through the centuries will inevitably come across the same links to information that tell the real story. I can only assume that some people are just to afraid to click the links and read something that is likely to shake their world view. It is hard, HARD, to admit you have been deceived all your life. Add in most of your friends and family have also been deceived and its just too much for most. The truth is not for the mentally weak...but once you make it through...and you will, given time, things (and life in general) make SO MUCH more sense.

    Think about all the other things we have found out about since the internet came along. The FED literally prints money out of thin air, 9/11 was an inside job, the markets are rigged, the USA is the biggest terrorist state, etc. Why is it so hard to accept that we have been lied to about religion?

    For those who are actually interested in evaluating whether their beliefs are more or less likely to be valid...here are a couple of links that led me out of the darkness.

    Stefan Molyneux
    Against the Gods? A Concise Guide to Atheism and Agnosticism (free book, also in audiobook format) Just listen and THINK!

    Again, most believers will not even consider checking out the links. They have been indoctrinated into thinking its a "sin" to question...or that I'm the devil, or something tragic will happen to someone they love if they dare educate themselves. I know...it was difficult for me to take that first step...but now, my wife and I cannot believe we were so damn gullible.

    Peace and Love!

  • This makes much more sense. ROFL!

  • Don't forget to research the original 13th

  • Through the years...

    I've used (not abused) just about every substance you can name. For me, alcohol turned out to be the worst of all drugs, by far. Booze is the ONLY substance that ever caused me to do and say things that were completely out of character for myself.

    At the other end of the scale, I was offered MDMA in my early 30's and even though I was a bit nervous...I did go ahead and try it. Turned out MDMA was by far the most wonderful feeling both mentally and physically that I had ever experienced. It truly was just incredible! Its so bizarre because as incredibly "high" as you get from consuming MDMA, unless you told someone you were "rolling" no one would even know. I actually took a dose right before going to work one day and had just an excellent day. Try to wrap you head around getting as "high" as you have ever been but, with no one being able to notice? I remember talking to my Mom on the phone one time while I was on MDMA and not even my mom could tell. The only clue that people tend to pick up on is how incredibly happy, relaxed, loving, understanding, and completely carefree you become.

    I remember sitting outside by our pool(before I had to short-sell my home) just gazing into the sky. Massive warm and fuzzy is best I can describe. unfortunately the stuff I hear about being available today is not MDMA. Its mostly just some type of stimulant. REAL MDMA is nothing like being on speed. Damn, I haven't thought about it in so long...I'd like to have some right now!

    I'd also really like to try both DMT and Ayahuasca but so far I've never had access to either.

  • I don't pretend to know how we got here nor do I know

    what happens after we die. I look at it like this: I do not remember the 9 months I lived inside my Mothers stomach. Based on evidence I've seen since I've been alive, I do believe I did live inside my Mom's stomach for about 9 months. Also based on how I've seen newborns react immediately after they are born, I probably didn't have any desire to leave the comfort of my Mom's womb and plopped into this world when that happened. I don't remember anything about being in my moms stomach. So, in my view, I'm in this world right now and when I die, it's just "what's next".

    Honest men do not pretend to know; they are candid and sincere; they love the truth; they admit their ignorance, and they say, "We do not know."

    What I do know is that the explanations provided by the bible and theologians is wholly inconsistent with anything real and rational that I've ever experienced while I've been alive. Miracles do not happen. Snakes have never communicated with me. Donkeys have never spoken to man. Dead men buried for 3 days underground have never risen from the dead. You can tell me these things happened 2000 years ago but based on my education, research, and personal experience I cannot make believe it to be true.

    All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind and monopolize power and profit.

    It seems much more reasonable to me that religion has always been a device used by the rich to oppress the poor and render them powerless.

    The Christian religion even to this day cannot be believed by any reasonable person without believing in miracles. I just do not understand why non-believers are regularly viewed as the "crazy" ones because we don't believe in miracles. Bizarre. :-)

    Okay, I'm burned out talking about mythology and superstition.

    Peace!

  • We live in a corporate paper based reality

    Everyone and every city, town, state, district, everywhere...has now been incorporated.

    Its practically impossible for anyone to escape. Just by using FRN's you are "agreeing" to participate in the fraud. Of course, since its virtually impossible live any type of a normal life without getting a drivers license, bank account, etc., everyone is part of the paper based administrative system. But the reality is, since we are forced into all this crap, legally, none of the contracts are valid since they are adhesion contracts that we were never given proper notice about nor informed about all the obligations we were accepting and all the other strings that are attached. All the contracts are null and void because you can't be compelled to perform under a contract that was fraudulent or where one or both parties were intentional deceived.

    The problem can't be overcome without a mass awakening. You will find very few if any who have used the system against itself without a huge amount of personal time, money, and time spent in jail.

    Like I mentioned below...research Rod Class. He has been fighting a bogus concealed carry charge for nearly a decade and just this past month...after ALL THAT TIME...he choose to take a plea bargain to avoid up to 21 years in jail. The attorneys admitted his paperwork was correct. Karen Hudes even showed up at his last court appearance to support him and nothing mattered. They told him to plead guilty or else. Like Rod said...you can't make much progress from inside a jail cell. Adam Kokesh learned the same thing...the hard way.

    Until enough individuals educate themselves and a large enough group of people just start peacefully non-complying with Drivers licenses, insurances, banking, etc. nothing can/will change.

    All indications are that the lawyers/attorneys/judges/court administrators...ALL are either aware and playing along for personal/financial reasons or they are just educated to actually believe they are right and those of us who have figured this scam out, are just crazy, conspiracy theorists.

    However, more and more people are waking up. Lots of educated people are unemployed/under employed and have lots of time to spend researching the truth through our unprecedented access to information via the internet. I've personally learned more in the past 6-7 years than all the other years of my life put together. (Granted, I did have to unlearn a lot of things too) Other than the experience I got just from being alive, living and working all my life, I can't think of much I learned in a school environment that has helped me in the least. I'd have been better off quitting school after I learned to read, write, add and subtract.

    So, keep learning and enjoy it. But putting what you learn into action will most likely be best saved for when the system finally collapses in on itself and we can hopefully build a new America 2.0

  • I listened to the entire podcast

    SPECIFICALLY because I'm one of those people who always adds a caveat when I mention or promote Tom Woods...that caveat of course being...Tom believes in god.

    I really hoped he was going to put forward something that would cause me to think long and hard about some area I had never thought about before, but no such luck.

    I'm not going to address each of his points but one thing I'd like to mention is that a lot of believers routinely provide the text book definition of "non-existence" when defining "god".

    EVIDENTLY, (meaning, using the available evidence) no gods exist! I just don't know what to think when people use the very definition of non-existence to validate the existence of something..??

    non·ex·is·tence n.
    1. The condition of not existing.
    2. Something that does not exist.

    exist
    1. to have actual being; be:
    2. to have life or animation; live.

    It's become painfully obvious that one of the greatest barriers of individual, critical thought (and personal empowerment) is the stubborn inability of otherwise intelligent people, who for whatever reason, cannot break the chains of their religious indoctrination.

    It makes perfect sense why our government gives tax free status to churches and why the criminals in DC regularly mention scripture and "the year of our lord", "In god we trust", "one nation under god", etc. TPTB KNOW that if they can at LEAST keep MOST people enslaved to bogus religious dogma...their ability to think critically and think for themselves remains significantly thwarted.

    "Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful." -Lucius A. Seneca

    "The Bible is a mass of fables and traditions, mere mythology." Mark Twain

    "It is fear that first brought Gods into the world." Gallus Petronius

    "The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason." Benjamin Franklin

    BUT, BUT, BUT... I love ALL of my brothers and sisters in liberty and freedom! I will never allow religion to cause any meaningful distraction from what all of us here really want...and that is Peace, Liberty and Freedom.

    PEACE & LOVE!

  • It didn't appear or sound like

    whatever the thug (cop) put into the back of the older pickup/car was the same thing that sounded like a firecracker. I think that sound came from further down on the right...near where the other car was already burning.

    Having said that, I would not be a bit surprised if it was the armed thugs who burnt most of the cars and most of businesses...including that Advance Auto.

    It would be nice if Oath Keepers might have been able to get some incriminating footage of the criminals in action. I'd expect some of the protesters probably let themselves get caught up in the moment and created some of the destruction but if my research over the past 5-7 years has taught me anything...it is to QUESTION the "Authorities" and look out for Agents Provocateurs and Staged Events.

    I now ALWAYS suspect the cops and other authorities by default. My research indicates its almost ALWAYS TPTB that are trying to cause conflict.

  • Perpetuating the Scam

    It’s not hard to see why so many people think this way – religious wars and persecution have, over the centuries, killed untold millions; the tenets of Holy scriptures used as a justification for a litany of crimes against humanity, from the Crusades in the Near East and the conquest of the New World and subsequent genocide of the indiginous population, to the horrific Inquisition and the frequent slaughter of heathens “in the name of Jesus Christ”.

    When a bunch of people fool others into believing a set of claims that have no truth to them, then yes it is a scam.

    The truth about the origins of religion is now at everyone's fingertips. I'm shocked at the number of individuals who refuse to even do the research. It goes to show that the elite knew what they were doing when they really started wholesale religious brainwashing with the expansion of the Roman Empire.
