There is an anathematizing expose' on Amerika from the "ditto heads" to the "hard ballers". It is a real good thing the grass roots liberty movement is growing.

    Mike is right. This particular problem knows no party affiliation, it is general and ingrained across the spectrum. How else can you explain an American Police agency smuggling guns to criminals? I was just doing my job? Not to mention the obvious cover up from Holder & Co. They are as complicit in murder as the Nazi's who were "just doing their job" of putting Jews into ovens. This crap has got to stop!

    This is exactly the sort of thing I believe in. It's a pity that there are Americans who are still willing to submit to authority.

    I knew a school teacher who was a Monetary Realist and he said there is a book on the subject of respecting authority. You will understand this once you have been jailed for an imaginary crime as I and hundreds of others have been.

    I doubt we'll hear from Waffler on this one. He always argues for obedience to authority for the collective good. 'Question Authority'

    Funny that Einstein's theory of relativity is now the authority and anyone who disputes it is treated like a quack.  Even Hawking finally admitted that there is no way to prove the Big Bang or black holes  only on paper, and observable reality does not completely match the physics.  "Bent space," "dark matter" and the mysterious "weak force" are all theories on why the calculations do not work exactly as theorized.  Yet no other theories will be studied in universities.

    Did you know the Sun was electric? ;-)

    Conversely: Contemplative reflection on nature's moral authority must be the friend of truth.
