Fear and Oath-ing in D.C.


Oil companies burn off natural gas (enough to power all the homes in Chicago and Washington combined) because it is cheaper to waste it than do something useful with it.  It sure does seem silly to me that our president tells us to keep our car tires properly inflated to save energy while this is going on.

I keep hearing talk about our ‘free market’ and I should be happy because I live in a free county.

Louisiana stops sale of cheap milk at market


You can read stories like this all day long.  Our government is out of control.  This is what is called tyranny.  It will lead to bloodshed if not stopped through peaceful means.

I hope all my ‘liberty’ friends read and (mostly) agree with this:

On “Propagandizing” for Ron and Rand Paul

From the very first day I recognized Ron Paul was gaining popularity, I knew that this thing we were all creating, this “liberty movement,” as it came to be known, would come in separate parts. That logically, there would be a beginning, middle, and hopefully, some victorious “end” or ends (there’s never any true “end” because to protect liberty we must always remain vigilant).


Pictures and such:


These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they do Employed
DeathSpiralLast month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. What’s the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25.00 an hour.

UPDATE: The report does not say that every household receiving welfare benefits totals $168 but specifically refers to those receiving benefits and living below the poverty line. Also, it should be pointed out the $168 includes all costs incurred by the federal government to deliver benefits, including administrative costs.


Well said my friend.  (What has changed with the gun culture?, Does gun control work?, An AR-15 along with a 30 round magazine is suitable for home defense use according to the DHS.  Who needs an AR-15?

Good for me, but not for thee:

Mayor Bloomberg, in the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team?

Retired Sheriff Richard Mack spoke for almost 2 hours at the Allen Area Patriots meeting last week. He has an interesting story of how he became sheriff, how is was turned on to learning about the US Constitution and the concept of liberty, and and how his opposition to a component of the Brady Bill worked its way from a feeling to a landmark Supreme Court case. Here is the video:
