I Will Not Comply

Like most members of the Congress that passed it and, undoubtedly, the president of the United States who signed it, I have not read the entirety of the ill-named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  Yet there is one aspect concerning that legislation of which I am certain: I will not comply.

I will not comply because I am a free citizen of the United States, not a subject of its government.  I consider non-compliance with this monstrosity and the tens of thousands of pages of regulations that are to be enforced by an unelected bureaucracy, and that have left a gigantic carbon footprint on our environment and the United States Constitution, a duty.

Non-compliance is my executive order, and that order reads in part that I do not recognize any government's claim on my action or inaction in the marketplace, nor upon any personal information I am unwilling to divulge.

I will not submit to a cabal who read George Orwell's 1984 not as a terrifying warning, but as an instruction manual.  Nor will I submit to the dictates of those who attempt to trample the right of free speech of others in the halls of government who are warning us about the looming tyranny.  I refer to those sons of liberty who, as Camus wrote, "are not all legitimate or to be admired. Those who applaud it only when it justifies their privileges and shout nothing but censorship when it threatens them are not on our side."

If (when) the IRS or HHS or any other such entity attempts to extort a tax or fee of any kind for not participating in mandated commerce, they will be met with resistance.  I will not pay any such tax or fee.

It's True, I Am the Terrorist

http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/confederate-battle-flag-raising-scheduled-saturday-south-of-richmond/2013/09/28/1c3b3114-282e-11e3-8ab3-b5aacc9e1165_story.html

As a Confederate battle flag rises along I-95, an American flag is unfurled in Richmond

CHESTER, Va. — Hundreds gathered Saturday in freshly cleared woods along Interstate 95 to celebrate the raising of a Confederate battle flag, an event that stirred strong opposition from those who view the flag as a symbol of division.

Symbol of Division? Really? The people of the true south want to fly their flag and honor their Heritage and their War dead. It has nothing to do with "division and bigotry" They are innocent of these charges just as the Civil war was not fought over "slavery" (don't you get sick of people puking up this boldface lie?). They want to remember their past and try to teach the truth.

I however want to use this banner along with the Gadsden Flag to separate myself from the current political structure in place in Washington DC. You should leave the Southerners alone and come after me. I'm the one you want. I'm the one that believes Jefferson Davis should have been the president and not the Bloodthirsty Tyrant Lincoln. I'm the one who things we need to make a Fundamental Change in Washington DC not them. It's just that I agree completely with the Confederates as to how this country should move forward, not the Obama way but the Jefferson Davis way.

And yes, if provoked, I will fight!! Everyone else seems content to waste away in obamas handout and free everything if you just vote for him. I heard someone say they voted for Obama because he believed in family.....really? you mean the ones he wants dead? you mean the kids with no brothers and sisters thanks to abortion?.....I can't justify it.... and neither can you but you will hang on until the end....whatever that means.

Not me, I remember a better America, and I will fight to get it back.

The American Flag is sullied and soiled, I choose the Confederate Battle Flag as my banner. The liberals can just keep stomping on their stars and stripes, but should be careful with the stars and bars.

Remember, I am the terrorist, you should fear me, I won't put up with this administration and his "March of destruction" on America.

Or Am I the real terrorist???? Think about it.

Will You Fight for Freedom?

 
"Fernando"
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
I remember long ago another starry night like this
In the firelight Fernando
You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your guitar
I could hear the distant drums
And sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar

They were closer now Fernando
Every hour every minute seemed to last eternally
I was so afraid Fernando
We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to die
And I'm not ashamed to say
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

Now we're old and grey Fernando
And since many years I haven't seen a rifle in your hand
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
Do you still recall the fateful night we crossed the Rio Grande?
I can see it in your eyes
How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando
Yes, if I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando...
 
Would YOU Fight for your own Liberty? 

What The Confederate Battle Flag Means To Me. A Confession

With years of the Liberals burning "Old Glory" for so many years makes me wonder about the "new" attitude about the American Standard and I find myself amazed at what I see. Richmond, Virginia has been the lightening rod for liberals for the last couple of months as to my astonishment the screaming hate America crowd has decided that the Stars and Stripes takes on new meaning as is to be glorified with none other above her. When I was a Boy Scout, before they went gay, (or BG) I was taught respect for the flag, that the flag was not to touch the ground, that a tattered flag was to be taken down and deposed of with respect with certain rituals as to the handling, folding, and flying of Old Glory. The liberals since then has taught that the Stars and Stripes is to be despised and to be hated, that it stood for power and greed and hatred. And the world hated our nation as we flew this soiled flag over our nations capital. And the progressives would burn and stomp and spit on and do all manner of vile things that I was taught was to be the focus of pride and honor and a symbol of our nations glory. And I hated the progressives for the way they treated our nation's symbol.
Enter Obama
Now it seems the progressives have a new standard to hate, and try as they might, one brave lady with a group of True American Patriots have given me a new standard to love as the symbol of the chance for freedom. that symbol has become the Confederate Battle Flag. And as I and many other Americans have discovered that Old Glory has become the truly despised Flag the progressives said it was, true American Patriots have discovered a new symbol of Freedom! Susan Hathaway, a member of the Virginia flaggers, told the crowd Confederate symbols are being snuffed out and they have a duty to responded when the South’s “honor is attacked.” She has her reasons for loving and cherishing the Confederate Battle Flag and I agree with those reasons, but I also have my own reasons. You see Obama and the Progressives have destroyed this once great nation and everything that it once stood for. As Obama and the Democrats have, as promised when he ran for president of the former America, "fundamentally transformed" America into a vile and evil nation who is at war in practically every theater in the world. Foreigners now hate America and Americans and spit every time they see our banner as they search the skies for the dreaded drones that coldly rain death and destruction on those who pose a threat to Obama's desire to spread Islam to every corner of the earth.  Obama's policies have destroyed America both domestically and internationally and I find myself no longer desiring to claim Old Glory as my banner.
I have a new Banner now, it's the banner I will fly on flag day, its the banner I will fold and not allow to hit the ground. It's the new banner of freedom, the freedom that National hero's like "Stonewall" Jackson, Robert E Lee, Sam Davis, Jefferson Davis. Men who stood for real freedom and States Rights. Men who fought and died for the right to live free without a central government or fear of an NSA, and the IRS, a HLS, an EPA, or a US Department of Education, or the FBI, or the CIA, the Affordable Health Care Act the one that you owe a tax for the second you are born in this country. The list goes on and on and the crimes against our citizens increases at a staggering rate. I'm now ashamed of old glory and what it now stands for.
Then I see this, The VA Flaggers are raising the Confederate Battle Flag on I95 just south of Richmond Virginia and all of the sudden Obama and his maniacs are incredibly in love with the American flag? All of the sudden they raise the flag downtown as a diversion of the raising of the Confederate Battle Flag? They burned, spit on, stomped on, and desecrated the American flag and now they want you to worship it right along with Obama and his maniacs??? WTF???
So I've decided that the American flag does not stand for the things I stand for, and I no longer place that flag in a place of honor in my mind. the Flag I will follow is the Confederate Battle Flag! Not to Coopt the place of honor it has with those in the South who have honored the Flag and their Civil War Dead for generations, but to tell the world I don't agree with the policies and actions of the united states of America, I am no longer one of them. I stand separate and have a different set of beliefs, I am not Muslim no matter how many "honor Muslim days" Obama declares. I do not approve of the wars in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Syria, Libya, Iran, Iraq, or any other war this president declares to spread the hateful religion of Islam. I do not agree with "spread the wealth" I do not agree with spying on all Americans and our Allies. I do not agree with sending drones to do our dirty work, I do not agree with giving the UN our sovereignty, I do not agree with uncontrolled spending, I do not agree with National Health Care, I do not agree with Core Curriculum, I do not agree with militarizing our neighborhood police, I do not agree with gun confiscation, I do not agree with "freedom of speech" zones, I do not agree with a "strong central government", I do not agree with military intervention inside the US. I do not agree with the advancement of Islam inside the US. I do not agree with my tax dollars being given to al Qaeda, I do not agree with F16s being sent to the Muslim brotherhood, I do not agree with sending weapons of war to the Syrian rebels, I do not agree with taxation with representation......and on and on and on......
So you see, If I want my freedom, I must take up the cause of the Confederates, you see, they didn't want these things either, and I have discovered that, just like the words in the song "in Dixie land I'll take my stand to live and die in Dixie", even if I am a damn Yankee!!!
Read the Words of Jefferson Davis and tell me you can't agree!! Really?

Electricity Rates In America Will Necessarily Skyrocket! Barach Hussein Obama

For Germany, it all adds up to a disaster in the making and an explosion of electricity prices per kWh, at least 40% or more


http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/58140

High German Electricity Rates Coming to the USA?

Based on this alarmist erroneous information, most countries have made and are making fundamental changes to the way they live and do business. Germany was one of the first European countries to jump on the wind and solar renewable energy bandwagon, abandoning nuclear power generation after the Fukushima disaster in Japan. Consequently, according to Spiegel Online International, Germans were forced to pay the highest electricity rates in Europe. “Germany’s energy poverty” hit the underprivileged the hardest when “electricity became a luxury good.” Welfare and pension checks were not adjusted to accommodate for higher prices. Over 300,000 Germans a year have their electricity cut off because they cannot afford to pay their electric bills. “Two-thirds of the price increase is due to new government fees, surcharges and taxes.”
The renewable energy is generating so many tax surcharges, Germans can no longer keep up – there is a surcharge to finance the power grids, and collateral damage charges from energy surplus or deficit, depending on the weather and the time of the day.

Visa Declares War On Gun Merchants and Gun Owners

Visa Goes Anti-Gun: Restricts America’s Largest Gun Store From Processing Transactions

The assault on the U.S. Constitution and the Second Amendment continues.
Visa Goes Anti Gun: Restricts America’s Largest Gun Store From Processing Transactions 280913tile4
Visa – limiting your rights
This time big business is getting into the mix and they’re aiming for gun stores right at the source of their revenues – their transaction processing facilities.
According to Larry Hyatt, owner of the largest gun brokerage firm in the United States, Authorize.net, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Visa USA and one of the world’s largest credit card processing gateways, has terminated their relationship with the firm.

BIG Obama supporters, Visa needs to be cut down, each transaction must be examined to determine if other sources of credit are available.

Is It Really That Simple To Shut Down This Clinically Insane Government? DO IT

A Shut Down of Government May Help Us Avoid Civil War.

Hill prediction: Headed for shutdown

House and Senate leadership aides in both parties are increasingly convinced the federal government will close for the first time in more than 17 years on Tuesday morning.
There is still time to avoid such a climactic stalemate, the aides acknowledged. But unless there is a dramatic change in momentum, the likelihood that a partisan showdown over government funding and the future of Obamacare could lead to a shutdown has increased dramatically.

SHUT IT DOWN!!! THIS GOVENMENT IS NO LONGER WORKABLE

A simple fact is missing from all the media hysteria and political establishment temper tantrums over Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee’s attempt to defund Obamacare.

Americans are getting slammed by Obamacare right now. Workforces are decimated as health care prices rise. Public opinion is on our side. If now was not the time to unite and fight it, when was? Those who are attacking Cruz and Lee’s efforts have forgotten how negotiations are won.
Use as an example the negotiations a governor of energy-rich Alaska must engage in with powerful multinational oil tycoons. In my experience, I found that the key to achieving success for the people you’re elected to serve is to take a firm position, stand solid, and negotiate from there when the other guy is ready to take you seriously. You fight as hard as you can with whatever small edge you’ve got until the other guy respects you enough to wise up, sit down, and come to a mutually acceptable agreement. You get nothing at all if you preemptively surrender before the battle even commences.

I AGREE WITH SARAH

Oh Please, Shut Them Down, One Dictator Silenced by the Lack of Stealing Taxpayer Money SHUT THEM DOWN

wow, no NSA spying on Americans, no IRS harassing Americans, no EPA shutting down power plants, No EPA not letting us "drill baby drill", no money being sent to the al queda, no F16s to the muslim brotherhood, no common core for our kids, no attack on Syria, no war in Afghanistan, no Homeland security to harass us at airports, no press telling us how great Obama is doing,
SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT DEAL TO ME....SHUT EM DOWN!!!!

FUCK EM!!!

The president used his weekly address to the American people to demand that Congress meet its two responsibilities: “pass a budget on time and pay our bills on time.”

SHUT THEM DOWN, DO IT, DO IT NOW!!!!

Dallas County Now Has Its Very Own Bulletproof, "Mine-Protected" Military SUV

Coming to Your Neighborhood Just to Keep You In Line!

Now that the war in Iraq is officially over and the one in Afghanistan winding down, the Department of Defense found itself facing a conundrum. It had just spent billions of dollars buying heavily armored personnel carriers designed to stand up to insurgent attacks only to find that it had run out of wars to use them in.

The initial plan was to shove the vehicles, called MRAPS (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected) into a warehouse and let them collect dust. That changed when someone decided that, having served so admirably overseas, it would be only just to bring the MRAPs stateside and deploy them in the domestic war on crime.
And so, for the past couple of months, news reports have been popping up announcing that places like Murfreesboro, Tennessee and Ohio State University have been receiving their very own military-grade armored SUVs.

Last Week The Liberals Couldn't Burn The American Flag Fast Enough, Now......



It will be flag versus flag Saturday near the former capital of the Confederacy, as a heritage group promises to hoist a Confederate battle flag up a 50-foot pole along Interstate 95 and opponents will respond with the Stars and Stripes.
A group called Virginia Flaggers is scheduled to fly the 10-by-15-foot Confederate flag on private property south of Richmond at a location that has yet to be disclosed. A spokeswoman said details would be released later Friday.
Since the group announced its plans in June to raise the flag in Chesterfield County, others said they have gathered nearly 24,000 signatures on an online petition opposing the flag and have urged city residents to fly the American flag. One of them, who sought anonymity, planned to raise a giant flag Saturday afternoon in downtown Richmond.
"You can't stop them from raising their flag, but you can drown it out with better speech: an American flag," said Brian Cannon, 31, a Richmond attorney affiliated with United RVA, which has spearheaded the protest. RVA is a common abbreviation for Richmond, Virginia

Just for fun....

Get Out Now Before Obama Institutes the Final Solution.

Why are Americans giving up their citizenship?

 
The number of Americans giving up their citizenship has rocketed this year - partly, it's thought, because of a new tax law that is frustrating many expats.

Goodbye, US passport.

That's not a concept that Americans contemplate lightly. But it's one that many of them seem to be considering - and acting on.

The Aliens Are Coming, And They Will Eat the Press First

Time’s Stengel latest in long line of reporters who jumped to jobs in Obama administration

By and Billy Kenber, Published: September 25
Jay Carney says it was a simple calculation. He could continue as a reporter and writer for the rest of his working life, or he could try something new and different.
He chose something different. After 20 years as a reporter at Time magazine, Carney accepted an offer to become communications director for Joe Biden, the newly elected vice president, in late 2008. Carney would go on to become President Obama’s press secretary two years later. “I had a great job” at Time, Carney says. “I’d also been doing it for 20 years. Doing something completely new has an appeal.”

Warning Projectile Vomiting Ahead

of the lowest slime on the face of a cow patty lies the American press, stinking putrid liars who turned their back on the greatest nation on earth to spread their vile lies as they slither from one Obama event to the other. words can not describe my contempt for these pond scum vomit lickers from hell. the lies the lies the lies, while they smile and tell you the economy is getting better, and the world loves us now, and Obama won the not so noble piece prize. what crap. if you have a weak stomach, it's time to quit reading. now.
how can these sorry excuses for human life even look at themselves in the mirror. they pass as the judges and jury's for all things good, they spread human waste like manure spreaders and eat at Joe's on cockroach infested sandwiches. smiling and all the while crawling on their belly's like the scaled reptiles they are. they ruin successful carriers with some low life mag rag and take jobs lying while smiling and jousting with others of his make and character. imagine if you will all those kids who are pinning for a job with the press while they are being taught to bend the truth and outright lie for the dictator Obama...all wants a job where the truth runs loose and slithers across the floor of the men's room by the urinal on a Saturday night. yeah that's right, I hate the press and everything breath they breathe. they are traitors and treasonous and deserves what happens to those who set about to destroy their own country. What do you tell your children at night when you realize that you sold their future and the future of a nation so you could win the Obama biggest fucking liar of the year award? when your kids graduate from college and there is absolutely no economy left for them to get a decent job, what will you tell them? will you tell them that thanks to you and the lies you printed you helped to destroy any chance they had for a good life? no you are so used to lying you will blame on a president that is not even in office so you can ease your guilty conscience as you children stand in line for bread and the flu shot. will you explain how you printed lies about Obamacare and how there is no longer any hospital that is worth taking your dog to, because your government stripped every penny from health care just the way they did the US Postal Service, Social Security, and the very government you get on your knees to every night? What will you say when your children and grandchildren are born in stinking barns with cock roaches and rats running the halls and roofs that leak and the food served is rotten and the infant mortality rate is 40% if they make it through the failed abortion attempts.
I blame the press for all of it, they are responsible, for the lies, for the power grab, and for the coming civil war. I blame the liars and word spinners of the press for all of it. there is Karma and you will pay hell for what you have done and your children and their children will live in misery and fear for your intervention in what was a great nation. Want to see the future of your health care, look at the history of Walter Reed Hospital and weep for the great nation that the entire US press core began writing the obituary for 5 years ago. my only satisfaction is that they will not get by with it, they will pay for their words, them and all their heritage will pay. Each member of the US press should look in the mirror in disgust then go outside to a country road and find a tree and do us all a favor. the hate and the violence in this once great nation sits between the folds of the vile words printed on your bloodstained paper.
I hope I am alive long enough to see you all pay.....every single one of you.

 
And you thought it was "meet the press" hahaha!

The Fruit of Obama's Labor

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP/CBS Charlotte) — A man who shot four people near a Greenville Wal-Mart in June picked out his victims because they were white, according to several indictments handed down against him.
Lakim Faust had more than 100 rounds of ammunition when he started shooting at people who were standing outside at a law firm and a shopping center in June, authorities said.

The Freedom To Burn

Since I was a kid I've had a friend. And unlike the other kids who had "invisible" friends who they spoke to, and to the enlightened, understood that the invisible friend spoke back. And not unlike Jimmy Stewarts old friend Harvey, My old friend speaks to me. And while other kids outgrew their secret companion as the got older, my old friend is still around occasionally and still speaks to me if I will hold still long enough to hear. Last night my old friend caught me in a moment of unusual tranquility and came around for a visit. I sat motionless gazing up at the stars when my friend first spoke and while', at first I was a little startled, I recognized his voice and continued in the dialog that lasted only a couple of moments.
My friend spoke to me of freedom, the freedom to burn. You see, my friend explained, you are a lot like me, you are born, and catch oxygen, and as you grow you catch heat. The trend continues until you are on fire. And given enough oxygen and heat your fire grows ever hotter and you start to consume the things around you and you give off more and more heat until eventually the sum of what you are is consumed and your energy is expended and starts to cool but your ember glows in the night, and as sparks fly off of you and soar into the night sky that others might see your light. and every piece that breaks off to fly soars ever skyward until that little ember flashed to eternity and the spent ash falls to the ground and goes on to feed other fires far into the future.
That's Freedom my friend, You are a fire burning, flaming, and glowing. And your sparks fly and you consume what's around you and reshape it to something good and you share your flame with others and they catch fire. And you do what you were sent here to do, you burn and your heat grows and you share and you consume and finally leave the essence of yourself for others to pick up and nourish and grow and start to create their heat. The oxygen is supposed to be the government, and it's their job to ensure that you have enough oxygen and fuel to grow and consume and heat until you are spent. That is their job, and your job is to burn in freedom.
Our government has decided that you do not really have the right to grow and consume and to share and to heat, and they are attempting to restrict your oxygen and deny you the fuel you need to have heat. But as my old friend explained last night, that it is our destiny to burn, we are born to it, it is our heritage. If you do not burn, you are failing from your commandment as a person.
Everyone burns, some so fast that the ember barely is seen, others slow and deliberately as in the wisdom of the ages. Either way we have a job, and the job will be done by you or by the ash of your life that is left behind for others to nourish with. Burn, you have the freedom still to burn, don't let anyone steal your heat, run until exhausted, and walk in God's strength.
But above all Burn!

Obama's costly war on coal

Phyllis Schlafly warns of latest 'bypass Congress' move that will mean higher rates

Campaigning for the 2008 Democratic nomination for President in Oregon (a must-win state in the Democratic primaries), Barack Obama toadied to environmentally conscious voters. He said on May 17, 2008, “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times – and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.”
In one of those “other countries,” Australia, a political earthquake has just ended the six-year reign of the leftist Labor Party, which had imposed a steep “carbon tax” on electricity bills. This month, Australians elected a new government pledged to ax that tax.

A Useless Obama Addresses the Useless United Nations

I don’t know who looked more pathetic when President Obama addressed the United Nations Assembly on Tuesday; him or the assembled ambassadors, many from nations where human rights, justice, and liberty don’t exist. Like the League of Nations before it, the United Nations has long since demonstrated how useless it is.

Victory: Senate to Kill Monsanto Protection Act Amid Outrage

Anthony Gucciardi 
Prison Planet.com
September 25, 2013
This unprecedented move shows the true power of the anti-GMO, anti-Monsanto movement, and how elected officials are now being forced to side with the concerned population over the money-spewing Monsanto. After all, it was Monsanto who purchased its way into the initial Senate spending bill legislation via a rider dubbed the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’  through Senator Roy Blunt.
Officially labeled the Farmer Assurance Provision under Sec. 735 of the Senate Continuing Resolution spending bill, Senator Blunt was conveniently given over $64,000 by Monsanto before he handed the biotech corporation the ability to write its own legislation for the Monsanto Protection Act. And as I told you back in March here on the frontlines of anti-GMO activism, the financial payload dished out by Monsanto was enough to secure a major victory for corporations over both the public and even the federal government.

Cyprus-Style Wealth Confiscation Is Now Starting To Happen All Over The Globe

Michael Snyder
Economic Collapse
September 25, 2013
Now that “bail-ins” have become accepted practice all over the planet, no bank account and no pension fund will ever be 100% safe again.  In fact, Cyprus-style wealth confiscation is already starting to happen all around the world.  As you will read about below, private pension funds were just raided by the government in Poland, and a “bail-in” is being organized for one of the largest banks in Italy.  Unfortunately, this is just the beginning.  The precedent that was set in Cyprus is being used as a template for establishing bail-in procedures in New Zealand, Canada and all over Europe.  It is only a matter of time before we see this exact same type of thing happen in the United States as well.  From now on, anyone that keeps a large amount of money in any single bank account or retirement fund is being incredibly foolish.~

A Hearty Arhgggg Goes out to The Feral Irishman for turning this one up

 
Amazing, Such Passion!

Finally Someone Has Put The Pieces Together, Mass Killings Are Spawned By Big Government

Consider the common public characterizations of the perpetrators of the last several mass shootings in the U.S., such as John Holmes (the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting),  Adam Lanza (Sandy Hook Elementary School) and most recently,  Aaron Alexis, the named shooter at the Naval Sea Systems Command inside the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C.  Even the most skeptical among us would have to agree that there is not only something eerily similar about the characterizations made public of each alleged perpetrator, but there is something not quite right with the changes made to the official narratives in “real time” as well as after the fact.

Parent Arrested for Questioning Common Core Curriculum - Get you Kids Out NOW!!!


Video: Dad Charged with 2nd Degree Assault on Cop After He Questioned Common Core Curriculum

September 23, 2013
A parent trying to get answers regarding the curriculum his children are learning, was aggressively thrown out, arrested and charged with second-degree assault on a police officer during a school board meeting in Maryland last week.

free country my ass. this is everyday!! America get off you butts and stop allowing this shit!! It's your kids we are talking about. Don't you care any more?????

UK Wants A Piece of this Action

Come and get us....

Whew, that's scary, the UK and the UN (I'm sure with Obama's blessings) wants to land amphibious landing boats on the Outer Banks, start going door to door taking sovereign citizen's of the US guns. Now I know Cameron and Obama are sleeping together but that's no reason for pillow talk to turn into a lot of UN and UK soldiers to come over here and getting themselves killed. Anyone who knows Americans will tell you that you can get by with a lot of shit (Obama is my best example) but when to come to take our guns you will need help, I mean a lot of it. You see, in America, unlike the sheep in the UK, we will fight, there will be a rifle behind every blade of grass waiting for your keen uniforms and black attitudes. We whipped your ass once and if provoked will do it again. See Obama can't get enough support from the National Guard, the Army, the Navy or Marines to get the job done and he knows it. So if he can suck in a few outsiders in the fray, he just might get enough people to clear out enough houses to get gun control, for a few minutes.
Obama knows it, there is enough ordinance buried in these United States in places unknown, to maintain a guerrilla war from now till doomsday. Can you say Viet Nam? We learned a few things about "hide and seek" in that war to understand how to take all comers. Don't forget, we have the home court advantage so to speak.
SO when you want to come over and risk your boys lives the way we waste ours in all parts of the world, trying to intervene in everyone else's civil war, come on over, Just be ready for a little shit you will get from your citizens about all the losses in the US civil war you will take.
I'll bet you even think World Wide Wrestling is fake, don't ya?

Are You Round Up Ready?

http://blogs.wsj.com/indiarealtime/2013/09/22/gm-crops-wont-solve-indias-food-crisis/?mod=WSJBlog&mod=irt

Earlier this month, India’s Parliament passed a bill aimed at delivering subsidized food to around 800 million people. While well-intentioned, the law is expensive and has raised questions about whether India produces enough food to meet demand.
Proponents of genetically modified food say GM technology will boost production to meet India’s food requirements, but critics argue that it is unsustainable, and that the main challenge is not one of production but distribution.

you MUST read this article if you have not made up you mind about GM foods, this is a show stopper for Monsanto.

Propoganda, It's What's for Breakfast!

Never mind that we are in this position directly because of them and Obama's policies. they are willing to allow lowly us to be satisfied eating the crumbs that fall from the master's table.... and I can't stand it!!!!!
and they pretend to serve the "most in need"
what a crock of crap.
propaganda piece I'm surprise the puke press isn't all over this!
why don't they make it possible for new jobs to be created and cut the "serve those most in need" shit.....


Republicans and Democrats Join to Serve
Those Most in Need



From the Desk of Senate President Keith Faber:

These days, most of what you hear and see about what is happening at the Statehouse in Columbus and in Washington, DC is focused on all of the disagreement, partisanship, and name-calling between our elected officials and political parties.

But I want to draw your attention to a wonderful bipartisan volunteer effort that’s taking place at the Ohio Senate.

Our staff, Republican and Democrat, has joined forces to create The Emma Project, a community service program to meet the needs of our fellow Ohioans. The Emma Project was named for a Columbus woman who provided lodging and a warm meal for travelers to the Ohio Statehouse back in the 1800s.

Last week, as we remembered September 11th, The Emma Project participated in a National Day of Service. Staff members spent their day at the Gladden Community House in Franklinton, a neighborhood in Columbus, to hand out groceries and produce to residents of that community. Our communications staff created an emotional video that you should see:

WATCH THE VIDEO
Thank you to HandsOn Central Ohio, The Gladden Community House and the Mid-Ohio Food Bank for making this service project possible. Most importantly, I’m so proud of the staff at the Ohio Senate, Republican and Democrat, who take their responsibility to serve their fellow Ohioans beyond the walls of the Statehouse.

Sincerely,

 Keith Faber

It's Time for a One Million Pitch Fork March on Washington! (Torches are optional)

I don't know about you guys but I'm sick and tired of working 12 hour days because our company won't hire anyone because they don't have any idea about how much it will cost them for health insurance. So I am proposing a 1 million march on Washington DC with pitchforks in hand to prove our resolve. This time it needs to be the working stiffs like me who really don't have time to go down and make our voices heard because we have to hold a job, so they can take my money and give it to those who do 1 million man marches while the government pays their bus fare to get to Washington DC. Then the media hypes the whole thing that this demonstrates the average American and how we think. BULLSHIT> I'm sick of it. So I propose we working people, you know, the ones everyone depends on to build their roads, cars, planes, food, clothing, shelter, guns, knives and bullets, but the government takes our paychecks and gives it to the million man marchers and now they live better than we do!!!!!!!! Obama said it himself, if the people speak and governments don't listen then Obama will let our Embassy burn and kill American diplomats and send in the military to overthrow their government. You know, so he can win the Not So Noble Peace Prize! Ask residents of Libya, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, California and Colorado how much "peace" has been spread around since Obama took over. Then do a little homework to find out just who took over after Obama's drones quit bombing! that should open you eyes, hey but George Fuckalotofus didn't say it so it just didn't happen did it?
I know this will never happen, cause if you take time off and buy a pitchfork and march on Washington your boss will fire you. I know he will cause he's too stupid to buy his pitchfork and join you. but the time will come when you too will not have a job but then you won't have the money to buy the ticket....only Obama's supporters get that kind of benefits.
I still propose a 1 million pitch fork march on Washington DC the 3rd week of October, 2014, just before the mid term elections. schedule your vacation time now. take the 3red week of October off and jump in your car, buy one pitchfork for every member of your family and race to DC. Don't worry, they won't ban pitchforks between now and then because they don't think we have the guts to do it. When you get there, believe me, you won't be alone. there are millions of us that can't take anymore injustice. It's time we took our country back, even if it is at the point of a pitchfork!!!

1 Million Pitch Fork March On Washington October 19 thru the 25th 2014.

Be There!!! ( torches optional )

Save Your 401K Before Obama Decides He Wants Your Money.

The Pledge of Allegiance To Obama

((((1235085_574526839274280_2026747488_n“…this is why liberals are to be mocked and avoided if possible … bunch of paternalistic self-righteous busybodies who, in the end, are really just a bunch of assholes.”

Ocracoke Meanderings

 
The sweet smell of the salty ocean air greeted me as I scrounged around on the beach and gathered a little dried driftwood and threw it in a pile not far from the rising dunes just North of the ferry landing on Ocracoke, The ferries had quit running for the evening and no one hangs around there much after the last ferry leaves for the night, an occasional fisherman maybe but the main action and the real touristy draw to Ocracoke is the bar scene and those who wish to learn more about the famous Pirate Blackbeard, we were pretty much to ourselves, me and my wife. We took the mischievously piled wood and made a small log cabin, put some kindling in the middle and stretched a small grate across the top to create an efficient wood stove and set the kindling ablaze the rising smoke stung our eyes and the pungent smell of burning driftwood competed with the salty air for dominance, we both settled down on the two Adirondack chairs we threw in the back of the truck. the fire grew high and sparks flew from the crackling wood. We shared a funny cigarette and a couple of beers and watched as the night sky gave us the dependable show that it always gives when the stress of life makes a man wander to the beach for respite. We relaxed and roasted hot dogs and grilled vegetables on kabobs until we were no longer hungry. The cool wind was out of the west and tried to blow the flames off the fire.  but being unsuccessful, the wind settled for providing us with a small case of wind burned cheeks, the result of our midnight rendezvous with the beach. The eternal waves that slipped up on the shore over and over with the sound as ageless and relentless as the beginnings of the earth itself provided the symphony we have always enjoyed. I honestly can't tell you how long we tarried there as we ignored the movement of the celestial sky's in favor of sharing the simple pleasure of another homegrown, hand rolled "cigarette" along with a 1/4 split bottle of wine we purchased from the "On Sale" bin at the grocery in Avon. The air was cool and the breeze was brisk and the wine warmed us to the point that we didn't know we had any cares in the world. At this point in prior years the passion of youth would force us to explore each other in a really physical way until we would pass out under the stars, but these days we spend most of the time just gazing at each other in the fire light and enjoying the blessings that the years have given us. I can't say which way was better, but I can say that after 35 years, my wife is more precious to me than words will allow me to say. And these moments under the stars on Ocracoke will haunt this beach long after I'm gone. And I will in my ghostly way prod future lovers to spend time with each other and enjoy this beach and it's timeless wisdom to love each other in a way that no one in these perilous times understands. And my wife and I's ghost will smile and coax other troubled lovers to the beach that healed our marriage saved our lives! 

Vermin Fills the White House Bwahahahaha! Really? Took 5 Years to Figure That Out?

Bugged: Obama's Roach Problem

As in cockroaches. But vermin is nothing new in a building that is 213 years old--and roaches aren't the worst of it.

It was just a cockroach, one of millions around the world. But this one had a White House address, making it pretty special. Well, special at least to the reporters with workspace in the often-troubled basement of the press offices. Already this year, they have been treated to flooding, soaked carpet, mousetraps and the wondrous odors of mold.
"It was the size of a small drone," said Martha Joynt Kumar, professor of political science at Towson University, who led the effort Wednesday to capture the bug. Kumar, who has worked out of the press offices studying the president-press relationship for almost four decades, wanted to turn it into the General Services Administration, the agency responsible for the building. "I wanted to bag it so that the GSA would know what kind of issue we had," she said. "I chased it. But it got away behind some wiring."

Running Now Capital Offense In North Carolina, Just Keep Electing Them Yankees

Unarmed man, possibly looking for help after wreck, shot by police

CHARLOTTE, N.C. An unarmed man who may have been looking for help after a vehicle wreck was shot and killed by a police officer Saturday as he ran toward him, police said. The officer was later charged with voluntary manslaughter.

A statement issued by police said officers responded to a breaking and entering call on the city's east side around 2:30 a.m. Someone had knocked on the door of a residence, and the homeowner opened the door, thinking it was her husband. When she discovered it wasn't, she closed the door and called 911.

When officers arrived, they found Jonathan A. Ferrell, 24, a short distance from the home, and he matched a description given by the homeowner, police said.

Who to Blame Who to Blame?

Everyone wants to blame someone, I blame people who have elected Yankees or Yankee Sympathizers into Public office who want to help Obama with his police state.
Would this have happened if the police department were staffed by true Southern Gentlemen? Hell no. This is the new militarized police who are no longer there to "Serve and Protect" but are there to Push Progressive Policy and that does not include safety for the citizens especially a Southerner..
Sad but true.

Is Chinese Dog Food Killing Ohio Dogs? Commentors Think So!

Mysterious Illness Killing Ohio Dogs
Four dogs have died from a mysterious illness in Ohio, prompting state agriculture officials to issue a warning.
“Affected dogs have exhibited similar symptoms including vomiting, bloody diarrhea, weight loss and lethargy,” the Ohio Department of Agriculture said in the warning. “Although there are several known causes of these symptoms in dogs, it is generally believed that there is an unknown contributor to the cases.”

Self Defense: How Far Will You Go?


By Russell D. Longcore
I’m following a self defense theme for a few moments.
I see a lot of bluff and bluster in the Liberty Movement about how we’re all going to rise up and kick the ass of the .gov and .mil personnel come the revolution. And for the most part, I look at that as the same kind of high-fiving testosterone displays that you see in the stands at college and NFL football games.
I wonder how many people, men and women alike, have come to grips with actually taking a life of another human being, or fighting in a way that could kill or disable an attacker?

Son of Sherman Possesses Bloggers, Dixie, Americas Last Best Hope.

Va Flaggers:  Fight like Forrest...NOT Sherman!
 
From: VA Flaggers
 
Over the weekend, one of the Anti-Confederate Bloggers took his campaign of hate against the Va Flaggers to a new low, when he made my private employment information public by posting it on the world wide web, then tweeting the information, along with false accusations, to my employer, anti-Confederate agitators in the Richmond area, and our local press.
 
Almost immediately, I was overwhelmed by the incredible show of support from friends, Flaggers, and folks I have never met, from both North and South of the Mason-Dixon Line. I cannot adequately express my appreciation for the encouragement, offers of assistance, and willingness to help.
 
Some of the offers came by way of wanting to repay him and other Anti-Confederate Bloggers in like kind, by posting their information and encouraging others to do the same. I want to take this opportunity to express that I am adamant in not wanting ANYONE in our movement to ever do such a thing. Disagreeing with someone is one thing, and we have every right (a duty, even) to defend our honor, but publishing information that could very possibly affect one’s livelihood, and therefore their ability to care for their families and fulfill their obligations, is not something I want to EVER be a part of.
 
Unlike our enemies, WE have truth, honor, and right on our side, and do not need to sink to unethical and immoral tactics in order to gain victory.
 
In my humble opinion, the best thing we can do to neutralize those who attack us with no provocation is to stay focused on our Cause and continue the good work that has been started. With every flag that is raised, returned to its rightful place of honor, or added to the landscape, we win a victory for the Confederate Veterans who fought and died under them…and when THEY are not the focus of our efforts, such efforts truly are in vain.
 
Our heritage is under attack in ways that even our parents and Grandparents could have never imagined. The time has come for Southerners to stand in defense of our Confederate ancestors and against those who would desecrate their honor and memory.
 
I have no doubt that victory will be ours, even in the midst of this latest assault. I may not know what lies ahead, and I am certain there will be many more such attempts to stop us, but I know one thing is for sure…I’m determined to stand, fight, and never back down...but I'm gonna fight like Forrest…NOT Sherman.
 
"You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done..." Genesis 50:20

More examples of the hatred spewed by the so called "progressives". whew, this is ugly.
 
 

Confederate Flag To Greet Northbound I95 Travelers To Richmond. This will Really Piss them Off!

News that a giant Confederate flag which will soon fly beside I-95 just south of Richmond, Virginia has delighted many Southerners who are used to hearing of the South’s symbols, songs and flags being under attack in Progressive USA. It has also sparked a backlash from anti-Southern elements, mostly Northern transplants, who are raising money to put up an anti-Confederate billboard near the flag. Now SNN has been brought into the fray. In a recent article for the Chesterfield Observer news editor Michael Buettner quotes from Southern heritage activist and organiser Susan Hathaway’s appearance on the SNN podcast:

Quietly Hand Over Your 401K And Walk Away From The Table

The Best Advice I ever got was to quit contributing to my 401K and borrow as much money from it as I possibly can. YOU still believe you have a retirement coming, YOU still think that money is safe. Well if you think you will ever see one red cent of that money, you need to think again. The attached article from Ann Barnhardt explains clearly that your money is already gone, all that's left is so many digits on a spreadsheet that won't buy a loaf of bread. As your money becomes nationalized and you become broke. The government needs to figure out what to do with you. You don't have a job and they stole all your money.....what to do, what to do? We already know what previous Dictators did with these people, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin ad nauseous, you've heard the warnings and ignored then, you watch as the economy collapses around you and you turn on NFL Today. You are robbing any savings you have left to maintain an ever dwindling lifestyle. And all this is to prove you are not a racist and you support Obama. Man....we are in big big trouble.
Ann try's again to send you the truth of your current situation, but you won't take time to read it. You're busy, too busy. there's soccer for the kids and a tailgate party at you local sports team. and government will take care of its self..... right? of course right, in the meantime your kids are being trained to hate you and their country. they are being taught, right under your very noses that America sucks and Obama will "fix" it. You need to start asking yourself what will Obama's "final solution" be for the troubled person on welfare, he can't keep paying them and he knows it.....I would say "wake up!" but you might as well stay asleep...if you ever wake up your going to hate the person that wakes you instead of the person that did this to you....
waking up time is over now, we are fully in the arms of the oligarchs. but you don't know what that means. don't bother to look it up...you will be late for your PTO meeting, I've heard that the teacher has a really cool program for your kids to share the wealth! they might as well get used to it.
power hungry,
Here's Ann if you even care anymore

On Poland and Detroit. Not For the Faint of Heart.


Back to finance.  Poland did exactly what I and a few others have been warning about for years with regards to private retirement accounts and pensions.  Poland confiscated 50% of all private pension funds last week.  PRIVATE pensions.
As Warren Pollock and I have been screaming, one of the largest chunks of collateral left in the system is private retirement money, both in the form of 401(k)s and IRAs and in private pension accounts.  In the U.S., the latest data for 2012 shows that there are now $10.5 Trillion in private 401k and IRA holdings, with another $9 Trillion in pensions and annuities.

The end of your money, Do you really Care?

Dems Angry With GOP for Opposing Millions to Planned Parenthood Navigators

Watch your wallets, America, the liberal, waste-your-tax-dollars Democrats are on another spending spree and some of it is going to those brazen and brash baby-killers at Planned Parenthood.  As we all know, in Democrat thinking, the more infant murders committed, the more the tax shekels are doled out by our socialist commie lib Dems.
