I Can Do It; You Can’t

President Obama was served with a subpoena to appear in an Atlanta court on January 26, to offer proof of his eligibility to be on the ballot in Georgia in the upcoming presidential election. Georgia law, as I understand it, requires that all candidates for federal office be qualified to hold the office to which they aspire.

Of course, Obama did not appear; few, if any, expected that he would. He is, after all, El Presidente, and was busy with other things on that date, such as flying around the country campaigning.

Resistance

“Protests will get more radicalized since the Tibetans in the region see no concession, no offer of compromise, no flexibility coming from the government,” he said.

Imagine that.

Seems there’s more than a few “Teachable Moments” to this story.

BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY

Thirst

It is apparent to me that there is a thirst for freedom among the individuals that frequent this sphere of the internet.

I wonder if we are all doing all we can to push the ball forward.

It seems to me that if we all committed ourselves to the cause of freedom as vehemently as the enemies of liberty do,we wouldn’t be in the position we are in.

I know my personal awakening occurred during the second term of Bush the younger.

It didn’t make sense to me that depite all the talk of freedom and small government,his actions were contrary to his words.

Kind of like our current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

We really are in a battle for our way of life,you know.We all must carry our own portion of the burden in order to pass on any semblance of freedom or liberty to posterity.

I realized I could only talk to so many people in my daily life and decided to try and find a larger audience.

I’m by no means a writer,but I can tell by the reaction to some of my posts that there is a thirst for freedom.I am humbled by the reception of my ideas.I appreciate you spending your time to read my scribblings.

I encourage everyone to make up their mind as to what really matters to themselves,and make it your own.Live it,breathe it,know it,but above all else,do something for your cause.Expecting someone else to defend your liberty is a fools assumption.Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying to you,and probably wants 30 bucks a year in membership dues(coughNRAcough).

Freedom is a participatory sport,and you can’t win sitting in the bleachers.

You have to get on the field.

Who didn’t see that coming?

Laws are just for the peons.

Think we’ll see a warrant for his arrest?

Yeah,me neither.

Keep it up.You’re doing a great job of destroying your own legitimacy.

Fed.gov,that is…

Updated:

It appears that the judge issued a default judgement against Obama because he didn’t bother to show or send a lawyer.

The Bottom Line

We The People want to be left alone,to live our lives in peace as we see fit,free from coercion by anyone,without infringing upon the rights of our fellow man.

We’re tired of the neverending barrage of lies and distortions by our elected officials.

We’re tired of you constantly looking over our shoulder,watching what we’re doing,telling us we have no right to privacy,all in the name of safety.Yet,you claim you need more privacy to keep us safe.

We’re tired of you sexually assaulting our wives,mothers and children in the name of public safety.

We’re tired of the continual theft of our liberty.

We’re tired of not being able to trust you.
We want to trust you,but what we see makes us think that isn’t such a good idea.You don’t seem willing to trust us in the least.

We’re tired of double standards,or what you call “Professional Courtesy”.What ever happened to Common Courtesy?Sure seems to be in short supply these days.

We’re tired of law enforcement acting as a revenue generation apparatus,or worse,behaving like a trigger happy occupation force instead of the PEACE officers they are supposed to be.

We’re tired of seeing honest people run through the wringer for violating arbitrary laws while harming no one,yet honest to goodness criminals get a slap on the wrist and a swat on the behind.Or worse,”Paid Administrative Leave”.

We’re tired of having every aspect of our lives subject to some government agency or bureau that doesn’t care about what we want.Having to pay for it just rubs salt in the wound.Your obvious indifference to our pleas is absolutely infuriating.

We’re tired of you lying,cheating and robbing us blind because you can get away with it.

We’re tired of you betraying our trust.

We are tired of you telling us we have to beg permission to secure the means for our own self defense,or to bear the same as we please.

We are tired of being treated like children,being told we can’t be trusted with this or that,because it’s unsafe for us.We’re tired of having our choices taken from us “for our own good”.

Who are you to tell us we may not decide what is in our own best interest?

We are adults,we can make that decision for ourselves,thank you very much.

We do not seek to impose our will upon our fellow man.We find it immoral to offer violence to anyone,except to secure life or liberty.

Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself.

Live and let live.

But dammit,you’re not leaving us alone to live our lives as we see fit,and that is what pisses us off more than anything.
You claim to know what is best for us,regardless of what WE want for ourselves.
When we want or need your help,we’ll ask for it.Until then,leave us be.

But you won’t.

You don’t care.So here’s a question:

If you don’t want a disturbance,when will you quit disturbing us?

Look in the mirror.You know the answer.

You won’t,because you just want to make it through to retirement to collect your pension,or you are just trying to do your job,or you are only following orders.

Or worse,you want to impose your will upon us.

None of those are acceptable answers.

I don’t have to point out the fact that the population at large is arming themselves at a blistering pace.Why do you think that is?

You know the answer.Look in the mirror.

You have earned our contempt.IN SPADES.Payment for services rendered.

The NDAA is just the latest in a long train of abuses and usurpations.I’m sure there are more coming.When the law is illegal,no one is under any obligation to obey it.

Quit pushing.Stand down.Deescalate.Back off.

But you won’t.All experience has shown that is not in you.Humility isn’t one of your strengths.Neither is honest introspection.You don’t seek resolution,you seek domination.

YOU are harrassing us.YOU have overstepped your delegated authority.YOU have violated your oath.YOU are trying to provoke a response.YOU are the real criminal.

“I was just following orders” has never been an acceptable defense.

You,individually,have a decision to make:

Treat us with respect,and we will respect you.
Behave honorably,and we will honor you.
Do the right thing,and we’ll do right by you.

Don’t,and we won’t.

The decision is yours alone.

Yup

First principles are funny things.  When you actually have them and believe in them you find all sorts of problems we have today in our government and its budget aren’t really problems.  They all stem from one place — the desire to control others.  To direct their lives, to tell them how to live, and to violate their fundamental liberty interests — fundamental rights that most people believe were endowed by the very creator they claim to worship!

Think about that for a minute.

On the one hand most people in this country claim to believe in a God that endowed us all with certain unalienable rights — life, liberty, and the pursuit (ed. but not the guarantee!) of happiness.

But then, under the label of “Democrat” or “Republican” we vote for, support, and enable the enactment of laws that blaspheme what we claim to believe, in that we then intentionally violate those very same liberty interests we claim come from that God.

Yup.

Paychecks,Perception,Propaganda and Power

The erroneous notion that Americans have a choice between two political parties that offer distinct and clear opposing policies addressing the major issues facing our country is still perpetuated by politicians and the corporate media. It is untrue, as we have seen the Obama administration employ the same repressive methods instituted by the Bush administration. Military spending rises. Wars of choice proliferate and grow. Obamacare is virtually identical to a plan created by the leading GOP presidential nominee. Further restrictions, regulations and laws are put forth to keep the masses controlled, sedated and fearful. The governing elite and their propagators of misinformation are again formulating a false storyline to convince the easily fooled ignorant public that a sovereign country 7,500 miles from our shores is actually a threat to their lives. While our government has already committed acts of war against Iran (sanctions, assassinations, cyber warfare, and using drones to spy), the public is being worked into a bloodthirsty frenzy of nationalism. Bipartisanship worked so well with Iraq. How could it possibly go wrong with Iran?

Read the whole thing.It’s long,but worth your time.
