“Taxes are never, at no level of taxation, consistent with individual freedom and property rights. Taxes are theft. The thieves — the state and its agents and allies — try their very best to conceal this fact, of course, but there is simply no way around it. Obviously, taxes are not normal, voluntary payments for goods and services, because you are not allowed to stop such payments if you are not satisfied with the product. You are not punished if you do no longer buy Renault cars or Chanel perfume, but you are thrown into jail if you stop paying for government schools or universities or for Mr. Sarkozy and his pomp. Nor is it possible to construe taxes as normal rent-payments, as they are made by a renter to his landlord. Because the French state is not the landlord of all of France and all Frenchmen. To be the landlord, the French state would have to be able to prove two things: first, that the state, and no one else, owns every inch of France, and second, that it has a rental contract with every single Frenchman concerning the use, and the price for this use, of its property. No state — not the French, not the German, not the US-American or any other state — can prove this. They have no documents to this effect and they cannot present any rental contract. Thus, there is only one conclusion: taxation is theft and robbery by which one segment of the population, the ruling class, enriches itself at the expense of another, the ruled.”by jeffli6 with 2 comments
…then all illegal immigrants should be held to the same standard. If Reid is screaming that Bundy is breaking the law, then what is the difference with illegals? Answer that question Mr. Reid, and while your at it, why so passionate about giving illegals amnesty for their transgression, but no offer to Bundy to wipe his slate clean?
Is it because illegals will vote democratic and Bundy does not?
RORY REID: We believe in a country in which we are subject to laws and you can’t just ignore the laws we don’t like. I think clearly if state and local prosecutors look at this more closely, they’re going to find that he broke the law and he should be prosecuted…. He is not a victim and he’s not a hero. He’s been using that he doesn’t own for over 20 years and he didn’t pay. He broke the law. There are hundreds of ranchers throughout Nevada that conduct their profession honorably. There’s thousands of them throughout the country and when they have a dispute with the BLM they try to work it out.
Obviously the apple did not fall far from the tree with this one.by jeffli6 with no comments yet
Everyone escaped without getting shot. Whether Bundy was in the right or in the wrong in this situation is for the courts. Political threats won’t help.
RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) — Senate majority leader Harry Reid hasn’t been very vocal about the cattle battle showdown in recent days, but says “it’s not over.”
Reid tells News4′s Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over,” Reid said.
If he presses the issue somebody will get hurt.
So the main condition under which diversity adds to the strength of a culture is that a society’s diverse peoples be willing to assimilate to a common, unified culture with shared beliefs and values. Throughout most of American history, most newcomers were more than willing to assimilate. The “tempest-tossed” of the world were eager to be Americans. Like converts to a new faith, they often believed more strongly in American values and opportunities than did the native-born who sometimes took their blessings for granted.
But that no longer seems to be the case. For example, a 2013 Hudson Institute Study found that less than 50 percent of foreign-born citizens thought that students should be taught “to be proud of being part of the U.S.” What accounts for this changed attitude? The most likely answer is that many native-born Americans no longer believe in American exceptionalism either. Rather, they have been taught to believe that America is racist, sexist, homophobic, colonialist, and imperialist. In short, they have been taught to be ashamed of their culture. read more
Liberal indoctrination in academia succeeds. “White Privilege” is now the buzz word for the left to further erode American traditional values.by jeffli6 with no comments yet
I don’t agree with everything but he does have some very good points.
How does the American government control its population? The same way it always has: divide and conquer. It pits one group against the other and lets them fight. Native-Americans against whites. Blacks against whites. Red states against blue states. Pro-choice against pro-life. Women against men. Liberals against conservatives. Straight against gay. The fighting is endorsed and encouraged by the power elite because it distracts their unjust or illegal methods of control, that if carefully examined and brought to light, would bring into question their very justification of authority.
Have you noticed how the Obama regime has been the most divisive administration ever?
It does not matter where you lie on the issue as long as you develop passionate opinions about homosexuals that you share in place of other issues that can threaten the power elite. Every minute you talk about homosexuals or immigrants or blacks or feminism or celebrities is one minute you’re not talking about an idea that reveals criminality of the government. For the issues that don’t threaten those who have power, you will be allowed the ability to speak about them indefinitely without disturbance. In other words, if you have gotten into an argument or debate about homosexual marriage in the past year, you are an obedient sheep that is doing what it is supposed to do. You will keep talking about it because you’ve been fed propaganda to do so, and when you get bored of it, there will be a new “hot button” topic that will keep you busy and emotional.
What scares the power elite?
The greatest threat to state power is nationalism. There is nothing scarier to the state than a large percentage of the population who self-identifies with each other and has similar beliefs they’re willing to die for.
You can actually predict whether a new belief system will be propagated by the cultural elite based on if it threatens the power elite. Does masculinity threaten the power elite? Strong-willed and reliant men have historically been one of the greatest threats to state power, especially if these men are idle without circus distractions. Therefore, masculinity must be written off in the media as a poison or antiquated accident of humanity that has no place in modern society.
Now you know why the left is in bed with the LGTB crowd. Not because they embrace the perversion, but to build a society of sheep unable to think for themselves.

Does sex equality threaten the power elite? Homosexuality? Celebrity obsession? Obesity? None of those offer a threat. They enhance state power by distracting the populace.
Does immigration threaten the power elite? Absolutely not. Immigrants are the easiest to control, they reduce nationalism, they put downward pressure on wages, and they offer a great distraction for citizens to whine about what’s happening to “my country.” keep reading
If it doesn’t accomplish it’s stated goal, then it needs to go away. This exchange of freedom for security is a travesty.
A vigilant public not concerned with political correctness would do more, for a lot less taxpayer money.

I think adults should jump in the frey, but this kind of shit doesn’t help.
Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins has caused outrage by remarking that Utahns planning to travel to Nevada to support Cliven Bundy in his standoff against the feds “better have funeral plans”.
The comments were revealed by Darin Bushman, a Piute County, Utah, commissioner after he spoke with Collins about Utah ranchers and his colleagues on the County Commission complaining about tactics used by Bureau of Land Management agents during their seizure of Bundy’s cattle in southern Nevada.
