The Bird Feeder Paradigm

I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it was, as I filled it lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food. But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue. Then came the crap. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table … everywhere! Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food. After a while, I couldn’t even sit on my own back porch anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio. Soon, the back yard was like it used to be ….. quiet, serene…. and no one demanding their rights to a free meal. Now let’s see…… Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care and free education, and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen. Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor; Your child’s second-grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn’t speak English. Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to ‘press one ‘ to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than ”ours” are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties. Just my opinion, but maybe it’s time for the government to take down the bird feeder. If you agree, pass it on; if not, just continue cleaning up the crap!! We don’t need a wall. We need to stop drawing lines in the sand and claiming no one can cross them. If we all are born free then should we not be able to go anywhere we want without asking for permission? When we are at our best, our country is an open-minded and big-hearted country, a compassionate nation. At our best, we have a strong sense of national purpose and an indomitable spirit. At our best, ours is a country of builders, doers, go-getters, dreamers. Today, as we wall... read more

The Patriot Act Is Unconstitutional

The Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act, more commonly known as the Patriot Act, was passed by Congress in October 2001 to give law enforcement increased powers in the fight against terrorism. Running 342 pages, the law contains more than 150 sections, most of which are amendments to existing statutes. The Patriot Act was first presented to Congress five days after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and passed 45 days later. Since when has government been so fast to do anything? This bill was already written long before 9/11. Think about that for a second. The law was passed by overwhelming majorities in both houses of Congress — by a 98-1 margin in the Senate and 356-66 in the House — but since then a growing number of legislators have become critical of it. Most of those expressing concern have been Democrats. So just what is The Patriot Act? The USA PATRIOT Act is an Act of Congress signed into law by US President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001. With its ten-letter abbreviation (USA PATRIOT) expanded, the Act’s full title is “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001”. In response to the September 11 attacks and the 2001 anthrax attacks, Congress swiftly passed legislation to strengthen national security. On October 23, 2001, Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner introduced H.R. 3162 incorporating provisions from a previously-sponsored House bill and a Senate bill also introduced earlier in the month. The next day, the Act passed the House by a vote of 357–66, with Democrats comprising the overwhelming portion of dissent. Those opposing the law have criticized its authorization of indefinite detentions of immigrants; the permission given law enforcement officers to search a home or business without the owner’s or the occupant’s consent or knowledge; the expanded use of National Security Letters, which allows the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to search telephone, e-mail, and financial records without a court order; and the expanded access of law enforcement agencies to business records, including library and financial records. Since its passage, several legal challenges have been brought against the act, and federal courts have ruled that a number of provisions are unconstitutional. Many of the act’s provisions were to sunset beginning December 31, 2005, approximately four years after its passage. In the months preceding the sunset date, anybody supporting the act... read more

Why You Should Never Trust Police And Always Record.

This Is Not Acceptable Under Any Circumstance. These guys are suppose to protect and serve. Somehow, the officer couldn’t tell the man dressed as a railroad worker was a railroad worker. So he began a cussing match with the man, physically assaulted him, and threatened to tase and arrest him. At one point he is in cuffs. Listen to the end of the video. Notice how the cops tries to get to understand his way of thinking. But when the worker tried to file a complaint, Walnut Ridge Police Department wrote the worker two citations. The citations were dismissed and the guy in the video is suing the city. See the video below. What do you think would have happened if this video did not see the light of day? Think about. Now… how may people are out there that have been falsely accused just like this and there is no video. How can we keep ignoring what is going on here. Their badge does not grant them any special rights over us. In fact, it takes some of them away. It’s a rigged game. They have made this system convenient to allow your rights to be violated in a way that you would much rather have that happen than stand up for them. That’s the best to describe what is happening to us. Take the Transportation Code and this could be applied to traffic statutes of any given state, or to the entire way in which law enforcement goes about its business. And it really is a business, driven by revenue, but possessing the power of the State and with a license to kill. Law enforcement is a revenue collector, producing obscenities like civil asset forfeiture where cash and property are seized from innocent people on made up suspicions. An officer’s first job when he gets you pulled over for a traffic stop is to attempt to escalate that stop to either a DUI or a drug bust. He doesn’t care about the traffic, that’s just his premise for pulling you over. His real goal is to get inside that car and see what else he can find. They are taught to find ways to keep the person in the car talking and answering questions that will allow them to continue their fishing expedition. Everything these officers do is meant to trick you into something that they can actually arrest you for. As soon as a cop puts... read more

It is time to start exercising our RIGHT to self-governance.

If you happen to live in Seattle, New York, or pretty much any large American city you will recognize the truth of this picture. Once more for the record, municipal and state “law enforcement” agents HAVE become the standing army that the federal constitution specifically prohibits. WHY do we allow our public servants the luxury of thinking that they RULE OVER US rather then SERVE US through our delegated powers? Why do we continue to allow local “law enforcement” to act as unaccountable armed thugs and murderers on behalf of the local “authority.” These “officers” bully, harass, assault, injure, and kidnap people every single day over “petty offenses” that cause harm to no one. We allow the state and local “authorities” to “criminalize” acts that require no victim or injury. Why do we allow it? Why are we blind to it? Why do we turn a blind eye to such atrocities committed in our name? Since when does the excuse “for the good of society,” an entirely collectivist/socialist concept, become the dominant theory and practice over individual rights and liberty under our Republican form of government? It is time to start exercising our RIGHT to self-governance. It is important to remember that self-governance begins with the INDIVIDUAL, not with the collective/society. Whether you believe the majority of people do or not, *I* don’t require constant “supervision and management” by others. I grew up, became a man, and “left the nest.” I became independent, self-reliant, and personally liable and responsible for my own acts, and I’m damn proud of it. We need more people to be proud of not needing to be “taken care of” their entire life. More people willing to take full responsibility for their actions and choices. Only then do we stand a chance of getting rid of the “nanny... read more
