A Bill of Rights issue for Oregon

Well this was certainly unexpected… Another of many reasons that I continue to no longer be an Oregon resident. How can any state feel that they are above the U.S. Constitution? Do inalienable rights mean so little to Oregon and her residents that they should be easily cast aside? Lawsuit… Continue reading

Interesting Reading for the Fourth of July

Do you know how many times God is mentioned in the Declaration of Independence? Once. Just so nobody thinks that I am taking it out of context: “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with… Continue reading

Its Sheeeeeeple!

So here we see the government intruding into your lives and asking you to shed your rights yet again! This week it was Pennsylvania, and recently it was Texas. There is a study to find out the statistics of drivers operating motor vehicles under the influence. Okay, I see some… Continue reading

Dog the Bounty Hunter, the latest threat against Snowden

Dog the Bounty Hunter has sworn to bring Snowden back to American, though what ever illegal means he can find. http://www.chronicle.su/news/dog-the-bounty-hunter-to-pursue-snowden-bounty/ And just who has offered a billion dollar reward for his return?

The general media has little time to report on such incidents, because they don’t bring in the ratings or aren’t within the political beliefs of the editor/owners of… Continue reading

Amending amendments

Anyone for a forth amendment discussion? Does, or should, the government have the right to peruse individual’s e-mail accounts, and chat history, without cause or a warrant? http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-57578839-38/irs-claims-it-can-read-your-e-mail-without-a-warrant/?part=rss&subj=news&tag=title If they are allowed to continue this practice, how long before corporations are given the same “rights”?   By, Eyes_Open

Federal Government Making A Huge Power Grab

By Eyes_Open The federal government has once again made a huge power grab to expand federal powers over the states. They are, as I type, in the process of removing the power of sheriffs across the country to arrest people and to act as law enforcement. http://www.examiner.com/article/effort-to-abolish-local-sheriffs-a-stealth-federal-power-grab Delaware has already… Continue reading

Wal-mart; Knuckling under to political pressure, or a convenient excuse for desired policy changes?

By Eyes_Open I have confirmed with other sources, Wal-mart is suspending ALL orders of ammo and firearms to their stores that carry these items, pending the final wording of the “Federal Gun Control Act” which is now in the hands of President Obama.
