Irony Alert: The 2nd Amendment’s Not Just For Muskets!

We posted this video before but I think it should be repeated. Our government (public servants) have no respect for history. It assumes that what we do today is a great advance on how previous generations thought and dealt with life. They overlook that every generation is full of people working away to improve how tasks are performed, lives are saved, distances covered, worlds made safer. They are particularly disparaging about technology, an area that benefits most from free enterprise. To watch those young people Occupy Wall Street with their smartphones, synthetic sleeping bags, vaccinations, and macchiatos is informing. They have no idea that their coveted “ironic” stance, is truly ironic. Their actions reveal their ignorance of our past. For when we forget our history, we lose our way. Science and technology has always moved rapidly. Man by nature is curious and inventive. Since we discovered fire, farming and wheels, we have striven to find innovative solutions to everyday problems. Things really began to rev up during the eighteenth century. So it is a great mistake to think that the Founding Fathers — the greatest minds of their generation — could not anticipate future developments in firearms technology – or any other technology, for that matter. One of our greatest ever minds, Benjamin Franklin, was not only a signatory to the Declaration of Independence, but a scientist and inveterate inventor. There is no way he thought science and technology would never develop beyond what was possible in 1770s Philadelphia or Paris. So, when you hear those idiots say “The Second Amendment was written for muskets” – show them this video. Are you awake... read more

We Don’t Need a New President – We Need a New System and a New Consciousness

We Don’t Need a New President – We Need a New System and a New Consciousness by Makia Freeman What the United States needs most right now is a new consciousness, and a new system which springs from that elevated consciousness – not a new president. Here we are again in the midst of another long election cycle in the US, and what has changed? Yes, there are more “outsiders” this time, to the extent that you can call Sanders (a career politician) and Trump (a billionaire intent on always getting the best deal, in true capitalistic style, no matter what) “outsiders”. You see it every election cycle; a new candidate emerges, promising hope, change and sometimes even a revolution. But how often does it actually lead to significant, lasting and beneficial change? Can any candidate really deliver as much freedom, peace and abundance to the average person as much as an improved new system? The “Hope and Change” Ride Many get swept away by the euphoria of it. Obamamania was a classic example. Obama was Mr. Hope and Change, but as many have noted, he turned out to be Bush on steroids, or tyranny with a smiley face. Obama has continued and expanded all the wars he inherited, spearheaded a whole new type of war (remote controlled drone killings) and signed pieces of legislation like the NDAA which allows Americans to be held indefinitely without trial, in gross violation of the 6th amendment among others. Is this the kind of hope and change people thought they were getting when they voted for Obama? Hope and change, or similar notions, are almost always seized upon by politicians vying for office, because they play off people’s dissatisfaction with the status quo. However, history shows us that generally the promised change never quite happens in a way that’s good for the people. The movement or revolution in the making tends to dissipate once the candidate takes office. It leaves us betrayed and trapped, like a donkey tricked into doing hard work, reaching forward for the carrot on a fishing line that always remains out of grasp no matter what he does. Although Bernie Sanders is clearly of a higher moral character than Obama, what will his brand of “change” be? If he wins, will he just be the leader of another phantom movement? The US President Has Too Much Power — Whoever It Is We may get a new president, but he or she will inherit the same system of control. Meet the new boss; same as the old boss. Lord Acton famously said that “power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. It is a very rare person indeed who cannot be corrupted by the massive excess of power that is afforded an office like that of the US President. US presidents have the power to fire anyone in the entire executive branch of the government, and also to command the instant destruction of entire cities. The US has thousands of nuclear missiles; only the president can give the signal to... read more

The Constitution – Free Your Mind

Someone told me that the Constitution as long outlived it’s usefulness. You can only imagine how that turned out. I could not disagree more. The Constitution itself isn’t the problem, as its time for existing is timeless when you understand the document. The Constitution does not give you rights, it protects the rights you inherently already have. You are not bound by the Constitution and it’s Amendments, Period! It does not apply to you. It only applies to those who swear to uphold and protect the document. Go it? Let’s get this straight… It is MEN that have perverted its intent and purpose. It is MEN with their eyes on power and wealth at the expense of those they deem to somehow be less worthy than themselves. It is MEN that believe that they somehow have an inherent right to rule over and control the lives and property of others. And it is MEN that has allowed all of this to become true rather than to fight back by arresting and imprisoning those that have used this Constitution and all their false laws to inflict pain, harm and death upon innocent and guilty alike. The problem is MEN with weak minds and weak wills, not some antiquated mandate that MEN should have been intelligent enough to understand from the very beginning. Are you awake... read more

This Is Part Of The Reason Why America Is So Messed Up

A Homeless War Veteran get mistreated. Now Keep Your Eyes On The Kid Beside Him! WOW! I am not a fan of war. Never have been, never will be. Nobody wins and the thought of going and killing people never sits well in an case. There is no denying, many returning vets with issues beyond the scope of physical pains end up homeless on the streets with no idea how to function in the civilian world after what they’ve been through; and no one blames them until it actually comes time to step up and help. This social experiment was designed to see how the populous reacts to a homeless kid (not really homeless) versus a homeless adult. The results are staggering; just how much abuse are the homeless supposed to take when even the random people on the streets abuse them? A police officer even began harassing him simply for asking for some spare change – after she’d given some to the kid! Being homeless shouldn’t be a social death sentence, it should be something that every first world country should attempt to eradicate. Humans are by far the most creative beings on the planet and it’s high time we used that creativity to fix a problem that never should have existed in the first place. In the end, the homeless vet will surprise... read more

Unlocking the iPhone is ‘Trivial’ the FBI is Deceiving the Public to Spy on Them

The US public doesn’t need a Digital Security Commission, they need the FBI to stop deceiving everyone and tell the truth that it wants to spy on Americans. Republican Michael McCaul, Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and Senator Mark Warner, a member of the Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence have introduced a draft bill that would create a ‘Digital Security Commission.’ It is supposed to help the US federal government better manage issues with encryption and better control the competing interests of law and technology companies. The proposal came amid the ongoing legal standoff between Apple and the FBI over a San Bernardino attacker’s cellphone the feds want to decrypt. When we hear ‘The Digital Security Commission,’ what comes to mind? More spying, period!. Let’s make this issue simple for the American public and for the FBI, who clearly doesn’t understand. These devices are computers, whether it is an Android phone, iOS phone, or whatever. Inside – is a processor, which is a computer, the instruction set, which is the iOS, and all the applications that you run and the memory – in which you store your data. Let’s take the FBI case. The FBI wants Apple to change their software, so that it removes the check for security, so that we don’t check for security anymore. Once it has that software, they can use that software on any phone. But they say they only need it for one phone. Anyone can exactly learn how we do this. You need a hardware engineer and a softer engineer. The hardware engineer takes the phone apart, and copies the instruction set, which are the iOS and applications and your memory. And then you run a program called a disassembler, which takes all the ones and zeros and gives you readable instructions. Then the coder sits down and he reads through. What he is looking for is the first access to the keypad, because that is the first thing you do, when you input your pad. It’ll take half an hour. When you see that then he reads the instructions for where in memory this secret code is stored – it is that trivial – a half an hour. The FBI knows this, Apple knows this. And this is not an indictment of Apple. Any computer that falls into someone’s hands, anybody can do it, which is why corporate datacenters keep their computers locked up; and this is why we ought to keep our own phones locked up… In either case if they (the FBI) don’t know – that is tragic; if they do know it – then they are deceiving the American public and Apple and everyone else by asking for a universal key. Why do you need a ‘Digital Solutions Commission,’ when the FBI should be able to take a hardware engineer and a software engineer and get exactly what they need? I can do it; anybody can do it. We don’t need a commission, what we need is the truth… The FBI needs to get its act... read more

Why Don’t We Call Out CNN and the Media for all the KKK Hype?

It’s amazing that the media is able to create the issue, the Ku Klux Klan. You know, I don’t even know if there’s 100 people in the country that even know about it. Of course, it has to be condemned, but why are people able to bring this up? No politician would want it to be brought up, so it has to be a plant by the media to instigate it, try to make accusations. Why? The KKK has been condemned, and they have been marginalized. Nobody cares about them. They’re evil, they’re monstrous, and yet now it’s going to be the issue of the day. That to me should be the issue, how in the world do these things occur? Why aren’t we talking about the military industrial complex, the Federal Reserve, the deficits, the intrusion of our privacy, and all the intrusions of our liberty? Something to think about. Are you awake... read more

Quotable Quote

“You may be 38 years old, as I happen to be. And one day, some great opportunity stands before you and calls you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause. And you refuse to do it because you are afraid…. You refuse to do it because you want to live longer…. You’re afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity, or you’re afraid that somebody will stab you, or shoot at you or bomb your house; so you refuse to take the stand. Well, you may go on and live until you are 90, but you’re just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90. And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit.” ― Martin Luther King... read more
