Beyond Being Mugged By the State

Friday, September 20, 2013 20:51 No Comments

I may be able to one-up LewRockwell’s post in terms of a story about being mugged by the gang of thieves writ large. William Davidson passed on in 2009 with a net worth of $3 billion. He is the founder of Detroit-based Guardian Industries, and he owned the Detroit Pistons, the Detroit Shock (WNBA), and the [...]

The Surveillance Apparatus State

Saturday, June 15, 2013 20:03 No Comments

Leonard Pitts writes about the tyranny of the Surveillance State in the Miami Herald: If ever tyranny overtakes this land of the sometimes free and home of the intermittently brave, it probably won’t, contrary to the fever dreams of gun rights extremists, involve jack-booted government thugs rappelling down from black helicopters. Rather, it will involve changes to [...]

Social (Un)Security: “We’ll Keep Your Dough.”

Thursday, May 30, 2013 10:45 1 Comment

With the recent death of a family member on the 26th of the month, I was reminded of a special provision for social security that gives the government a free pass for a last moment of theft, and that’s after a lifetime of theft under the guise of overseeing one’s “security.” The provision essentially states [...]

I Hate Government Street Sweepers

I’ve never understood the point or purpose of street sweepers – not since I was a small kid. They provide no value whatsoever. Forget what they are supposed to do – they can’t vacuum, they can’t clean, they can’t sweep up into a dustpan, they can’t wax, and they can’t pick up your carry-out dinner [...]

Dictators throughout time have used children as props. Is this symbolic of, “We are change”?

Productive Property vs. the Lawn Police

Friday, January 4, 2013 19:02 4 Comments

It’s amazing to see the number of individuals who are being persecuted for using their own property for productive purposes. This house and garden in Florida violated an “appearance code.” Appearance is always subjective, that is, until the government perverts definitions to enforce its arbitrary laws. Individuals who defy the crazed American Lawn Worship Culture and [...]

Don’t Roll Your Own Cigarettes in Michigan. It’s Against the Law.

Saturday, November 24, 2012 3:21 Comments Off

A couple of weeks ago I was in a smoke shop with a smoker friend. I ended up conversing with the owner who told me that bureaucrats from the state of Michigan had come in earlier in the year to shut down his cigarette rolling machines. The reason? Roll-your-own was becoming big business, especially with [...]

The Government Mimics a … Condom?

Blame Travis Holte, one of’s most hard-working “information connection activists,” on this one (sorry, but that’s my cop out Lew). Deny responsibility, and point the finger at poor Travis.   :–)

Amerika Hits the Snooze Button

Sunday, September 23, 2012 12:45 3 Comments

I find this video presentation on Big Government to be charming, especially with the speaker’s delightful Australian accent and well-written script. As an aside, I have Australian friends and correspondents, and always, the theme among them is this: “How is it possible that Americans – who are so blessed to have once been given a [...]
