Ever since I arrived to a state of manhood, I have felt a sincere passion for liberty. Ethan Allan
As shameful as Watergate is, the case has a hopeful or reassuring aspect: nothing is being swept under the rug. Orlando Sentinel
Orlando Sentinel editorial, 1/13/73
Most of the trouble in this world has been caused by folks who can’t mind their own business, because they have no business of their own to mind, any more than a smallpox virus has. William S. Burroughs
“The proposal would require banks to report to the IRS every deposit and withdrawal from an account, including transactions from Venmo, PayPal, crypto exchanges and the like in an effort to fight tax evasion. The IRS would know how much money is in an individual’s bank account in a given year, whether the individual earned income on that account and exactly how much was going in an and out. One key prong of President Biden’s plan to bankroll Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget plan is to monitor every inflow and outflow of an individual’s bank account. “
Perhaps they should install cameras in every bedroom and bathroom to make sure no one is doing anything illegal in there too? No curtains.
Microphones in every room and on you continuously so that they can monitor our speech for “hate speech”.
Of course the socialists and communists love this too.
So much for the 4th Amendment.
The authoritarian fascists want: No medical autonomy. No privacy. No freedom of speech. No border control. No fiscal responsibility.
I object strongly to the artificial and mainly false dichotomy that some people in the political arean place between blue-collar and white-collar workers. There is no way to earn an honest living in this country except by providing a product or a service to the public and, generally speaking, the harder and smarter you work, the more money you make. It’s just that some people have greater abilities than others. Tom Clancy
Executive Orders, 1996
It intriguing how the CDC changed their definition of terms in the last week or so from:
“Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease” (per the wayback machine) to
“Vaccine: A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.” (per the web site earlier today).
I am really curious about the timing of why at this specific time, did the CDC decide that the definition of vaccine needed to be changed.
To me it says: they are seeing more trouble with the vaccines than they are saying publicly and don’t want to be held to the old definition of what a vaccine is vs a therapeutic. It doesn’t matter from a usage standpoint, but it does from an accountability standpoint.
Isn’t it strange? The same people who laugh at gypsy fortune tellers take economists seriously. Cincinnati Enquirer
He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions. Thomas Jefferson

The God who gave us life, gave us liberty.
Summary View of the Rights of British America., Thomas Jefferson, 1774. (1743-1826).
To be free one needs constant and unrelenting vigilance over one’s weaknesses. A vigilance which requires a moral energy most of us are incapable of manufacturing. We relax back into the moulds of habit. They are secure, they bind us and keep us contained at the expense of freedom. To break the moulds, to be heedless of the seductions of security is an impossible struggle, but one of the few that count. To be free is to learn, to test yourself constantly, to gamble.
