Price of Liberty

A display of the true nature of the American political machine. This blog is a collection of posts and news articles predominantly focusing on the West's setting sun. "No Man is An Island," but forced equality is a myth. Here, we look at the price we pay for liberty.

I don't pretend to be an authority on anything and my academic qualifications are far from thorough. Still, I try to remain open-minded and ready to learn! Check out the link portal below or scroll through the infinite multitude of posts.

Yes, some of these posts are apolitical and personal in nature.

Someone else made an infographic, but it was a little bit shoddy, so I improved it.  

Re-reblogging for all you ancoms and other varieties of sea cucumbers who happen to be around.


How dies one person in a society completely change the societies dynamic when they decide to stop participating? Or multiple people or a large group, or a majority? If people are still participating in socialism or communism in and an anarcho situation it’s still a society based on that.

Because rather than being labeled as a “left” or socialist society, the individual who can say no and be respected in doing so demonstrates that all members of that society have the same capacity although they instead voluntarily choose to remain a part of the collective. They are thus Individual anarchists who voluntarily relinquish property or wealth for the benefit of all, but they are still individualists. That’s my interpretation anyway.

The disturbing messages in police recruiting videos

According to the New Mexico Watchdog Web site, this is a new recruiting video being used by the police department in Hobbs, New Mexico.

Note the aspects of policing the video emphasizes: Shooting stuff. K-9 enforcement. Nabbing the bad guys. The SWAT team. This is the first step in the process.

(There’s also the separate but related question of why Hobbs — a town of 35,000 people — needs a SWAT team in the first place. As the Watchdog reports, the SWAT team has its own page on the Hobbs department Web site, complete with a video of SWAT cops shooting and destroying things, set to heavy metal music. The statement in the video that “The rules of engagement of SWAT are simple: Defeat the enemy … any way you can”is also troubling. The mission of  a SWAT team ought to be to resolve volatile situations without force and violence whenever possible.)

Note, too, what’s missing from the recruiting video: Public service. Cops walking beats. Community policing. Helping people.

Now ask yourself:  What sort of person would be attracted to a career in law enforcement based on the images and activities depicted in that video? And is that the sort of person you’d want wearing a badge and carrying a gun in your neighborhood?

I agree. They ruined the ending of Season 1 of Heroes, and two was such an immediate disaster. I was thoroughly pissed off about it.

See I am not the only one who feels this way about Heroes

Season one of Heroes was probably the best first season of any show I’ve seen in a while. Even up to the end, but season two was absolute trash and the remainder of the series was equally garbage.

Senator Yee, extreme anti-gun Democrat from California gets picked up on corruption charges and then a sworn affidavit comes out about his alleged involvement in gun trafficking

image

Is this the Democratic Party equivalent of when an anti-gay-marriage Republican is found to be having a secret gay affair?

In any case, he’s also the same state senator who tried to ban the sale of “violent” video games to children

And this doesn’t look like some minor infraction or paperwork snafu either; there seem to be connections to organized crime (that is, aside from the organized crime that is his day job), and he seems to be quite directly involved in having arranged the illegal gun deal(s). 

This - along with the two other California democrats and the North Carolina democrat who have caught in crime scandals in as many weeks - serves as a good reminder that any politician who wishes to tell you how to peaceably live your life is a crook; it’s just that some are bigger crooks than others.

“Those of us who live in the rural areas know how to take care of lands. We have to start managing these lands. It’s the right thing to do for our people, for our environment, for our economy and for our freedoms.”

Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder said, who lives in the northwestern Montana town of Thompson Falls, as more than 50 political leaders from 9 Western states gathered to discuss ways to take control of federally owned land in their statesNew Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington also were represented.

In most of these states, at least 30% of the state’s land is federally owned; with some like Nevada reaching up to 85% of the land.

Bundy ranch militia (2014)

wonder if i know anyone here

this is the post i have been waiting for

Lot of saigas though, pretty rad

Lotta outdated gear and some pretty ugly stereotypical “tactical vests”.

Whatever works.

People are on a budget a lot of the time, people who are part of or form militias are usually working class. Cheap gear and surplus gear are easy to come by. So don’t hate. These guys are getting by with what they had.

Why are all of you nerds so edgy all the time?

The Waco siege began on February 28, 1993, and ended violently 50 days later on April 19. The siege began when the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) attempted to execute a search warrant at the Branch Davidian ranch at Mount Carmel, a property located 9 miles (14 km) east-northeast of Waco, Texas. On February 28, shortly after the attempt to serve the warrant, an intense gun battle erupted, lasting nearly 2 hours. In this armed exchange, four agents and six Branch Davidians were killed. Upon the ATF’s failure to execute the search warrant, a siege was initiated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The siege ended 50 days later when a second assault on the compound was made and a fire destroyed the compound. 76 people (24 of them British nationals) died in the fire, including more than 20 children, two pregnant women, and the sect leader David Koresh.
The other day I was talking to one of my followers from Waco, Texas. They had no idea about any of this. Why don’t they teach this stuff in schools?
