    I will hire any veteran who demonstrates that they did the job they were hired for. Their job was to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

    Guess I’ll be working by myself for a long time.

    Yup, okieqt. Think about it. For those who got/get a real education, there isn’t usually a spare minute of any day. extracurriculars take performance directly from academic performance.

    Desert, a MOST welcome post. Sadly, I did not expect to find even one person at this forum who understands the power of jurisdiction. Including the author, who relegates this vital measure to ‘rant’ status.

    My question is whether Brown adequately challenged jurisdiction. Certainly as a judge he should have known to make the adequate motion to halt the proceeding in its tracks, and earlier than he apparently did.

    GB folks…we complain often and impotently about renegade judges. The ONLY way to have them sit up and take notice is an SMJ challenge, Because s/he can be sued without jurisdiction on the record. And…they…know…it.

    Yes, desert, no fan of Joe Brown here, either. But this is probably the most worthwhile thing I’ve ever seen him do. Thanks for your post.

    The First Amendment is just as important as the Second.

    Just give the guy his wish!

    “Taxable event” does not mean 1) taxed event 2) liability laid upon a taxed event. Without either written into law, there…is…no…defensible…claim.

    I’ll come to Dallas, Mr. Beck, and say this to Mr. Luttrell:

    Having worked around SEALS for many years, what you do is PAST amazing. But…you and SEAL brothers have failed. Because you see, contrary to what we have heard you say, the nation did not hire you to “protect our American way of life” or even to defend us from the bad guys. We hired you to do two things: 1) protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic; and 2) obey the officers appointed over you. You show yourself to be expert at the latter. The former – your FIRST obligation – well, I shudder to think what the nation would look like if as much attention, training, planning and execution given to the pinnacle of military excellence went into the charge we gave you.

    This isn’t “workplace violence” — but neither is it terrorism. “Terrorism”, amongst explicit definitions that vary, is ALWAYS 1) a random act 2) to further a political goal 3) against a CIVILIAN population. Against a MILITARY population it is an act of war. There are no exceptions for those who seek benefits.

    I have often wondered why the bad-$%% protectors of freedom, the biking community, submits to state travel licensure in the first place. IMHO it looks pretty silly to have people riding for “freedom”….but not until they get their govt permission slips and license plates.

    This piece done eighty years ago would have Americans laughing at those uneducated morons who believed that retirement was a right, a license for travel was right, an income tax applied to all that comes in, voting is a Constitutional right, as is equality of outcomes, unemployment, guaranteed crop prices &c &c &c &c &c.

    We have met the enemy and they are us. The definition of uneducated moron cannot simply be those who know less that we do. Because as a society we have forgotten more important principles than we now know.

    Contraire, User! The executive branch, again, wrote a regulation to dismiss a law of Congress.

    Lots of the usual bravado here. This issue is different though, because it is a situation we all find ourselves in and we ALL can do something about. Seems from comments that 99% of Blaze-enlightened folks would do something. Hmmm. In my community and I’m sure in yours, 99.9 will bleat like sheep instead.

    Are we watching the same video, Barber? I’ll show you a dozen instances of non-civil disprespect by the officer if you can show me even one second of the traveler’s non-civility.

    OMG, Mick. The King has no permissions to give. He has nothing to grant.

  • July 1, 2013 at 12:08am

    Your analysis is right Chancellor, but I disagree with your prescription. No need for radical and generally worthless protest measures. MUCH more effective to actually live the charter. Most Americans give up 4th A rghts, nearly daily. 5A due process – govt request people to give it up and almost everyone does without question. Travel with license and registration? Complete a W-4, or accept W-2s and 1099s without dissent? Accept Social Security or any of a hundred other benefit programs? Get off this crack and liberty re-asserts. No useless protest action chasing of tails needed.

    No James, not guaranteed by the Constitution. The Constitution ‘guarantees’ nothing. ‘Guarantee’ warrantied by….whom? Rather, the ‘guarantee’ was a bold proclamation that We, the People could defend against its encroachment….if we chose to do so. Not govt; not anyone else.

    A fiction of the City Manager, the ‘mixing Church and State’ fiction. But more importantly, the good pastor is even more misguided. He appealed to King for the King’s permission. So he’s gotta play by the King’s rules. Can’t be a serf when convenient and then revert to liberty when serfdom becomes inconvenient.

    The soldiers continue to be wrong. Tenets of all definitions of terrorism used in the last 30 years are 1) a random act, 2) against a civilian target. They can either be victims or they can be soldiers. They are soldiers. They fight an “enemy” that is so in popular parlance, but who cannot be declared so under the rules of war.

    I know a very smart dentist who has always insisted that this subject is a big deal. But I guarantee you he did not spend millions to outfit his dental building.

    How about a petition for the American people to stop groveling to govt and to start acting like the free people they once were.

  • December 3, 2012 at 3:29pm

    Maybe people shouldn’t be whistling at women, or dressing as criminals do, of acting in ways threatening to reasonable people, or inflicting loud, violent music on the people around you, &c &c &c.

    I have yet to hear of a young black man being gunned down because he’d stayed at the library studying until closing time.
