Gun Free Zones = Helpless Victim Zones

The recent CN shooting tragedy is horrendous, and the typical reaction of authoritarian Collectivists is deplorable.

Will these bureaucrats ever acknowledge FACTS — will they never cease in spreading lies in order to instill FEAR into the psyche of ignorant masses as they continue violating their oath of office, which is to uphold the US Constitution and defend the rights of the individual?  Will they never cease in waging war against LIBERTY?

We the People must continue to pressure these anti-gun nuts until they put aside their partisan duopoly folly and get to the heart of the issue BEFORE any further innocent victims are put at needless additional risk of losing their lives due to such anti-liberty legislation which only serves to foster further acts of domestic terrorism.

The question everyone should not be asking:  "What do we need to ban now?"

The question everyone should be asking:  "Has history shown that 'Gun Free Zones' reduce violent crimes where implemented?"

According to the statistics presented by Grass Roots NC in its recent alert, "GRNC Alert 12-15-2012: Newtown Victims of ‘Gun Free’ School Zones Act" [], since the "Gun-Free Schools Act" was passed in 1994 there has been a 370% increase in the rate of school shooting deaths.

So, is GRNC accurate in its reporting of these statistics or not?  It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to determine the truth here, yet apparently some bureaucrats seem to be having great difficulty distinguishing truth from fiction.

If their statistics are even close to being accurate, those who supported the "Gun-Free Schools Act" and any other similar anti-liberty legislation should be held partially liable for the outcome of such shootings which occur wherever they have usurped the rights of the individual to defend himself — as boldly stated in a recent article from the Oath Keepers, The Federal Government is Guilty Accomplice in School Shooting in Newtown Connecticut [].

Let's consider other FACTS, some of which are included in the STOP the Obama Gun Ban Petition [].

There is no such thing as an "assault weapon" or "assault rifle".  All weapons — not just firearms — can be used for offense or defense.  Classifying any weapon as "assault" is erroneous at best and deceptive at worst.  GRNC is most likely correct in assessing that the word "assault" has been used by anti-gun biased media and bureaucrats in order to confuse the public masses regarding the difference between semi-automatic and fully-automatic firearms, while also asserting that only murderers and terrorists would "need" one.  Even NYC Mayor Bloomberg in a recent ABC News interview [] stated "assault" to mean "fully automatic" until the reporter corrected him.

Beyond this however, the word "assault" means: a crime that involves causing a victim to apprehend violence.  Therefore, by erroneously attributing the classification of "assault" to the most common of all firearms, the anti-gun biased media and bureaucrats are implying that everyone who owns a semi-auto firearm is a potential mass murderer.  This is extremely offensive to ALL law abiding Americans who are merely exercising our unalienable individual right to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our fellow man!

Plato said, "Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws," and this is a statement having perpetual truth.  Most rational Americans have by now learned from the failed "War on Drugs" and 20th Century Prohibition that legislation cannot prevent individuals from acquiring whatever one desires on the black market, nor from engaging in any particular willful action.

Therefore, no legislative ban on any weapon or weapon accessory will ever prevent an individual from acquiring the prohibited item and using it according to their will.  Such bans only prevent law abiding citizens from having the same means of personal defense by which a criminal might use for assaulting a helpless victim.

Americans should have also learned from tragedies like hurricane Katrina that we cannot always depend on our law enforcement to protect us in every situation — we have to be able to protect ourselves.  If criminals are able to procure semi-automatic firearms with high capacity magazines, then we must have the same ability or we risk being severely outgunned.

The notion of preventing potential future mass shootings by assigning security guards — especially in school zones — is well intended, but can never equal the deterrent of the criminal not knowing who in society is carrying a concealed firearm.  Further, the last thing we need is yet another largely ineffective Federal bureaucracy (like the TSA) to give a mere appearance or illusion of safety.  If the people of a given locale desire armed guards at their public schools, effective security would be better served by their local Sheriff's department.

Regardless, it doesn't take a whole lot of intelligence or common sense to understand that any location which has been deemed by bureaucrats as a "Gun Free Zone" effectively only creates a "Helpless Victim Zone".  Any criminal who calculates a mass shooting would rather plan to do so at any such "Helpless Victim Zone" where they will have the best chances of taking out as many helpless victims as possible before ending their own life.  This has also recently been exemplified in the Oregon Mall shooting [] which was stopped short by a licensed firearm carrier.

How many more helpless victims would have been shot there if an armed law abiding citizen wasn't there to defend them?  Yet the anti-gun nuts are currently attempting to persuade Congress to create more "Helpless Victim Zones" — this is an absurdity that should warrant accountability for violating the fundamental natural right to protect oneself.  Anyone who needs more evidence need only witness the testimony of Suzanna Gratia Hupp [] which she gave before bureaucrats in her state who should have been tried for being at least partially responsible for the deaths of her parents.

We the People of the United States of America have both enough intelligence and common sense to call this nonsense for what it is... so with all due respect, Mr. President, regarding your recent message about reducing gun violence... BULLSHIT!

We law abiding Americans will not remain silent while deceptively and falsely being accused of being potential mass murderers and we will not obey any of your tyrannical bans on firearms or firearm accessories.  While the authoritarian Collectivist anti-gun biased media and bureaucrats stand on deceptive lies and fear tactics as they wage war against our unalienable Creator-given individual liberties, We the People will continue to stand on TRUTH, JUSTICE and LIBERTY in this United States of America as we defy your tyranny in a mass action of civil disobedience!

Always in liberty,

(inspired by President Obama's message:)

The White House wrote:

A Message from President Obama about Your Petition on Reducing Gun Violence

By Bruce Reed, Chief of Staff to Vice President Biden

In the days since the tragedy in Newtown, Americans from all over the country have called for action to deter mass shootings and reduce gun violence. Hundreds of thousands of you have signed petitions on We the People.

I'm writing you today to thank you for speaking up, to update you on an important development, and to encourage you to continue engaging with the White House on this critical issue.

First, you should know that President Obama is paying close to attention to the public response to this tragedy. In fact, he sat down to record a message specifically for those of you who have joined the conversation using We the People. Watch it now:

On Wednesday, the President outlined a series of first steps we can take to begin the work of ending this cycle of violence. This is what he said:

"We know this is a complex issue that stirs deeply held passions and political divides. And as I said on Sunday night, there's no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. We're going to need to work on making access to mental health care at least as easy as access to a gun. We're going to need to look more closely at a culture that all too often glorifies guns and violence. And any actions we must take must begin inside the home and inside our hearts.

But the fact that this problem is complex can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing. The fact that we can't prevent every act of violence doesn't mean we can't steadily reduce the violence, and prevent the very worst violence."

Vice President Biden has been asked to work with members of the Administration, Congress, and the general public to come up with a set of concrete policy proposals by next month -- proposals the President intends to push swiftly. The President asked the Vice President to lead this effort in part because he wrote and passed the 1994 Crime Bill that helped law enforcement bring down the rate of violent crime in America. That bill included the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004.

As the Vice President's Chief of Staff, I'm going to do everything I can to ensure we run a process that includes perspectives from all sides of the issue, which is why I wanted to respond to your petition myself. Two decades ago, as domestic policy adviser in the Clinton White House, I first worked with Joe Biden as he fought to enact the Crime Bill, the assault weapons ban, and the Brady Bill. I will never forget what a key role the voices of concerned citizens like you played in that vital process.

The President called on Congress to pass important legislation "banning the sale of military-style assault weapons," "banning the sale of high-capacity ammunition clips," and "requiring background checks before all gun purchases, so that criminals can’t take advantage of legal loopholes to buy a gun from somebody who won’t take the responsibility of doing a background check at all."

An issue this serious and complex isn't going to be resolved with a single legislative proposal or policy prescription. And let's be clear, any action we take will respect the Second Amendment. As the President said:

"Look, like the majority of Americans, I believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. This country has a strong tradition of gun ownership that's been handed down from generation to generation. Obviously across the country there are regional differences. There are differences between how people feel in urban areas and rural areas. And the fact is the vast majority of gun owners in America are responsible -- they buy their guns legally and they use them safely, whether for hunting or sport shooting, collection or protection.

But you know what, I am also betting that the majority -- the vast majority -- of responsible, law-abiding gun owners would be some of the first to say that we should be able to keep an irresponsible, law-breaking few from buying a weapon of war. I'm willing to bet that they don't think that using a gun and using common sense are incompatible ideas -- that an unbalanced man shouldn't be able to get his hands on a military-style assault rifle so easily; that in this age of technology, we should be able to check someone's criminal records before he or she can check out at a gun show; that if we work harder to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, there would be fewer atrocities like the one in Newtown -- or any of the lesser-known tragedies that visit small towns and big cities all across America every day."

The President said it best: "Ultimately if this effort is to succeed it's going to require the help of the American people -- it's going to require all of you. If we're going to change things, it's going to take a wave of Americans -- mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, pastors, law enforcement, mental health professionals -- and, yes, gun owners -- standing up and saying 'enough' on behalf of our kids."

So let's continue this conversation and get something meaningful done. If you have additional ideas and are interested in further engagement with the White House on this issue, please let us know and share your thoughts here:

Thank you for speaking out and staying involved.

NC Domestic Terrorism — Turtle Island Preserve

To Pat McCrory (NC Governor elect), the NC legislature, the Watauga County Sheriff Dept., the Watauga County Planning and Inspections Dept., the Appalachian District Health Dept. (via website contact form), and Boone/Asheville media:

The entire NC State Legislature should be ashamed that it allows such crimes against its residents:

Upon reading this, I feel ashamed to be a North Carolinian!  This one hits very close to home for me, as it's somewhat similar to the local tyranny I continue to face with regard to my property situation (  My heart truly goes out to Eustace Conway and his family.  I pray he finds recourse to these crimes committed against him by his local government, which have been allowed by the State of NC.

There is a petition drive going on with not many days left, but at the time of my writing this only ~1600 signatures are needed.  Apparently this petition will be presented to the Chairman of the NC Building Codes Council on Dec 10th.

I'm not holding my breath, as from my experience with regard to these authoritarian Collectivist (and most often arbitrary) "building codes" issues, the bureaucrats seem to often "pass the buck" when confronted.  Regardless, I signed it anyway in hopes of a miracle — or that the NC Government might actually do its job in fulfilling its proper role and function: to protect the unalienable rights of the individual.

As America's so called "War on Terror" continues, the mainstream media is very silent when it comes to "Domestic Terrorism", defined by as:

Noun1.domestic terrorism - terrorism practiced in your own country against your own people; "the 1995 bombing of a federal building in Oklahoma City was an instance of domestic terrorism"
act of terrorismterrorismterrorist act - the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear.

It's time We the People start addressing such actions perpetrated by our own government which violate individual unalienable rights for what it is: Domestic Terrorism.

Rather than continuing to allow our own government to label any of US as "potential terrorists" simply because we speak out in opposition to such crimes against the People, We need to proactively do our part as American patriots in this endless "War on Terror" by loudly and ubiquitously proclaiming each and every time our government commits acts of Domestic Terrorism against US until the bureaucrats squirm!

If even the NC State Legislature and Governor will do nothing to stop such acts of Domestic Terrorism committed by NC government agencies against its own People, it's up to the People to engage in acts of civil disobedience as an effective non-violent recourse to this form of tyranny, since there appears to be non other.

Either that, or perhaps We the People should just accept our condition of slavery in this authoritarian Collectivist State and pursue a class action lawsuit against the US Government for false advertising: "Land of the Free, and Home of the Brave".

Regulating Liberty

A friend asked me my thoughts regarding the recent decision by the State of Colorado and Washington to end the prohibition of marijuana.  Of course, I'm very happy that at least two states have finally acted in accordance with LIBERTY — it's one small victory for liberty in "Neo-Amerika"!  8-)

However, I cannot say that I'm enthusiastic in any way regarding this call to "regulate" it.  Honestly, should there be any "regulations" placed upon liberty?  And who, other than the Creator — the source of all liberty — has the authority to regulate liberty or impose such regulations upon those to whom liberty was given?

Frankly, I'm entirely sick of this authoritarian Collectivist State regulating anything and everything.  The older I get, the more intolerant I am toward any and all gov't regulations.  I was reminded of this last night, upon finishing the History series, "The Men Who Built America".  Please allow me to digress...

I really enjoyed the series, but the Collectivist bias woven into the thread of the story troubled me, but I should not be surprised.  It painted the picture that "Capitalism" (presumably meaning the "free market") was solely to blame for the growing expanse between the rich and the poor in post-Civil War America.  There were several comments alluding to the evils of "Capitalism with no restraints" and how there is the "need for Federal government to regulate" an otherwise free market.  I found this Collectivist bias within the series to be not only stretching the truth, but hypocritical as well.  The documentary offered little to no balance in accurately addressing the opposing ideals of Individualism.

Clueless viewers of this series would certainly conclude that these wealthy and unscrupulous men who had a near endless supply of money were destroying the lives of countless Americans, yet the series never mentioned that these new gov't "regulations for the greater good" which replaced the free market soon allowed for the creation of a dishonest and immoral fiat money and banking system that would allow the ruling class to create wealth from nothing, plunging America into the Great Depression and ultimately destroying the economy over the following century or so.  On the contrary, the series conclusion made it seem like once Federal regulations were placed upon "Capitalism with no restraints", prosperity abounded for EVERYONE happily ever after!

At least the series gave credit to these late 19th century entrepreneurs who actually produced goods in their creation of wealth from both natural resources and labor, for making prosperity more achievable for ALL Americans.

However, the series didn't mention that while the State was supposedly fighting greedy monopolies, that it would soon violate the law of the land in creating perhaps the greediest and most powerful monopoly over wealth itself in the history of all mankind: the Federal Reserve.

Likewise, It made no mention that this new Collectivist social-economic-political system designed by the ruling class of bankers, lawyers and politicians, would soon foster a method of controlling the American working class through an "income tax" system which violates the fundamental unalienable individual right to privacy.

Not addressed is the long term result of adopting this new Collectivist system which would prove to prohibit accountability for and recourse to the myriad of natural rights violations to follow, even to the point of prohibiting alcohol and other drugs through legislation, giving no consideration for even such basic freedoms individuals have had throughout the entire history of mankind.

The series depicted these "Capitalist [PIGS]" buying off the media and politicians — even purchasing the outcome of the 1896 Presidential election — as if this hasn't continued to happen unto this very day with NO accountability or recourse whatsoever.  While one of the interviewees actually said that this sort of thing is probably much more difficult today, the truth of the matter is that even when corruption within our contemporary election process is revealed, NOTHING is done to correct it.

And of course the series depicted these "Capitalist [PIGS]" as being total anti-humanists, creating dangerous sweat-shop working conditions for (you'd think) ALL Americans — as if these few men of great wealth owned EVERY single business in America.  It still seems to me that if an employer creates such hazardous and slave-like working conditions, the workers could simply seek employment elsewhere — it's not as if they were being FORCED to work under such conditions.  Further, if the State actually performed its duty and proper function in protecting the unalienable rights of the individual, workers could have begun a class action lawsuit against their employer for violating their liberties.

Collectivists might argue that these powerful "Capitalist [PIGS]" would have simply bought off those gov't offices which might have otherwise done their job in protecting the downtrodden workers.  But then this would exemplify a breakdown in the function of the State for failing its duty, rather than some failure in the private sector brought about by an unregulated free market.  Capitalism, Socialism, or Fascism: human corruption is not limited to such manmade boundaries.

Still, individuals bewitched by Collectivist ideology will argue as if those holding gov't offices within this Socialist-Fascist system that America has continued to embrace since the turn of the 20th century aren't beholden to the deep pockets of the banking cartels, lobbyists, and their corrupted political parties!

If there was little to no accountability within the State in a more Individualist free market social-economic-political system, you can bet your last phony dollar that there will be even less accountability within the State in any Collectivist system.

Therefore, as this Collectivist State continues to regulate liberty in nearly every aspect of private and public life, I grow compelled to view any and all such "regulations" as yet another aspect of this ongoing war against Individualist ideology which maximizes liberty — and thus as a war against the People themselves, as well as their Creator.

Decision 2012 — Mourning After Thoughts

[My intent is not to vilify, demonize or condemn those who support the partisan duopoly candidates, but rather to help reveal to my fellow Americans what could be the greatest deception of our current age.]

I challenge EVERYONE who voted for either tyrant (Obama or Romney) to watch this 20 minute video:

"Worshiping Government — Message To The Voting Cattle"

It's a difficult message for us to hear that strikes a deep chord within the heart of the individual, because it makes a very good case for our own culpability in the massive and ongoing criminal actions against humanity committed by our own government — a government supposedly elected by the People in a "fair" election process.

However, I bet that those few who actually try to watch it will also find it very difficult because they cannot really understand and/or stomach the truth of this matter.  Can you?  I pray so!

I was inspired to share this video and write this blogpost upon receiving an email this morning which began with the statements: "Panic won't help, prayer will — yes, we're in trouble now."  I had to laugh as I responded, "We're in trouble NOW???"  As if we haven't been in trouble for decades!  8-)

It continues to astound me how the masses honestly believe we somehow won't be in as much trouble if their preferred "lesser-of-two-evils" authoritarian collectivist candidate for President wins.  In this case, as if electing a so called "Conservative" THIS TIME would somehow set "Neo-Amerika" upon some course other than that of total economic and social destruction, and repeal tyrannical legislation which violates the unalienable rights of the individual and the US Constitution.

I question: Which so called "Conservative" (or "Liberal") President has ever challenged the establishment for whom they work?  Which of them has ever truly challenged the immoral fractional banking and Federal Reserve system that has been thieving from ALL American generations in perpetuity for a century or so now?  Which of them has ever stood up in opposition to the immoral and inefficient Income Tax scheme which violates ALL individuals' right to privacy?

Yes, as a Christian, I do believe prayer will help — but prayer for what exactly… for those who "run" this country to somehow repent from their continued evil deeds which violate individual rights and the US Constitution, or for those who continue to repeatedly elect such tyrants into office to stop doing so?  I'm largely convinced that "We the People" and those we elect are far too deceived to repent, for how can someone repent when they don't even understand how they're sinning?

The author of "Message to the Voting Cattle" might not view the masses to be so deceived, which could be one cause resulting in such a tone of condemnation he attributes to this character's words from his fictional book.  However, as a Christian who believes in a spiritual battle continually taking place beyond the physical, I might have a slightly different viewpoint than he does regarding the extent of our own sole culpability in these continued crimes against humanity.

Revelation 12:9 says that satan deceives the whole world — and I believe it's correct!  Spiritually, he has deceived the religions of man into twisting Biblical scriptures for millennia, often resulting in the substitution of God's instruction with traditions of men.  Politically, he has duped the masses into believing in these false ideologies, "Liberal" & "Conservative", when the truth is that these terms have become mere descriptions of the contemporary political partisan duopoly, that in reality exists within the authoritarian ideology of Collectivism, which includes Socialism, Fascism, and other social-political-economic constructs which prohibit individual freedoms and free markets.

Ultimately these deceived masses replace the Creator with the State as the source of our liberty and justice, thus trading the worship of the Creator for the worship of the State — breaking Commandment #1: "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me."

My prayer is that the eyes of more people be opened to this great deception as the end of this age draws near — NOT so they can help to potentially change this nation (no, I'm afraid it's far too late for that, and I'm convinced that humanity is simply incapable of governing itself in accordance with LIBERTY) — but so they can PREPARE themselves both spiritually and physically for what lies ahead: the total collapse of society as we currently know it.

Of course, I am entirely disappointed with the outcome of this election which I successfully predicted over four years ago.  But I also knew I would be disappointed if my prediction turned out to be wrong, because I simply cannot support any authoritarian collectivist candidate that champions tyranny over liberty (see my blogpost: Choosing Sides — Good VS Evil).

I remain looking forward to the point in time when justice will ultimately be served — I just don't believe it can be served at the hand of man.

i believe noteworthy…

the day after writing this blogpost i discovered a comment to another online article citing "State worship" from an individual who said, "I am a Christian... and at times like this Romans 13 is my least favorite chapter of scripture (although I know when I struggle with scripture it is my problem, not God's)."

because of the way this was stated i perceived this individual to be wiser than average and was moved to reply to their comment:

there are many false teachings from many pulpits regarding Romans 13.  i began a study in this a while back and just haven't gotten back to finishing it, so i apologize for not being able to share it with you.  so i'll try and just give you a few thoughtful highlights from my perspective on this seemingly contradicting scripture...

YES — as Christians, we are to obey the law of the land... but are we also not supposed to stand up in opposition when the government breaks it?  after all, here, we are supposed to have a government of, for and by the People… therefore, is it not to some degree our own responsibility when our own government violates both the limiting power of the US Constitution and violates the liberties of its own People?

YES — we are to render unto Caesar what is his... but WHO is Caesar in a supposedly self-governing nation?  (We the People are supposed to be!)  and what if the very "money" our nation uses is not only based on a lie, but is also part of a fiat money and banking system which has been thieving from ALL future American generations in perpetuity since a century or so — should us Christians not stand up on opposition to this evil?

YES — we are to pay taxes as according to the law of the land... but what if those taxes violate the very right to privacy which was granted to us by our very Creator?  further, what if that tax system was deceptively written to appear that it applies to ALL Americans, when it really only applies to a specific set of people?

YES — we are to obey the authorities, but most Christians understand that God's hand was in the American Revolution — a revolution waged against a State (Crown in that case) which was violating the unalienable rights of individuals!  if the Colonists understand Romans 13 the way many so called "preachers of God" teach today, there would never had been an American Revolution, and they would have continued their march toward total slavery without any such opposition to tyranny.

LIBERTY is of Christ, while TYRANNY is of satan.  therefore, authoritarian collectivist tyrants will twist Romans 13 (as they do with many other scriptures) in order to make otherwise free individuals believe that they must voluntarily accept their slavery under the all powerful State, which in turn becomes their lord god and master — of course, they don't put it quite like that and probably don't even understand it due to being deceived, but that's the truth.

"Message to the Voting Cattle" brutally exemplifies that the masses have been duped into State worship, while believing such lies as those being portrayed about Biblical scriptures like Romans 13.

of course, individuals who are deceived into purchasing the lies of Collectivism — the ideology that teaches the individual exists for the masses, regardless whether they lean Socialist or Fascist — might read this and comment how much of a "kook" (or some other colorful adjective) i am for saying such things!

but when one takes the time to deeply investigate further into this world filled with deception, one will find that the ideology of Individualism which is rooted in the philosophy of LIBERTY stands in the light of TRUTH, which i believe comes only from one source: Christ, who is our Creator.  all Collectivist ideologies (including Socialism & Fascism) are from a completely different source that would rather have all humanity remain in darkness.

during these end times deception will continue to grow so very great that it will continue to be most difficult to see through it.  may God grant you the ability to do so, and also to persevere through all that we must face as we reap the results of allowing authoritarian collectivist tyrants to usurp our Creator-given individual liberties for many decades.  8-)

Choosing Sides – Good VS Evil

My reply to everyone who sends me pro-Obama/anti-Romney and/or pro-Romney/anti-Obama propaganda:  if I have to choose a "side", I'm going to objectively examine the facts and then choose GOOD (LIBERTY) over EVIL (TYRANNY).

In other words, I aim to support a Presidential candidate whose ideology largely falls on the side of LIBERTY.  Therefore, if it's between the "lesser of two evils", I'll support NEITHER, and rather vote for someone who to a much greater degree stands for truth, justice and liberty, even if they have little to no chance of being elected.  If there is still no one that I feel meets this criteria, I'll vote NOTA.

I cannot really recall a time in my life where the partisan duopoly candidates did not represent a "lesser of two evils" scenario, except perhaps for those two unique times in the 90's when Americans actually had a third option… but then of course, the tyrannical partisan duopoly tweaked the "rules" in order to make it nearly impossible from THAT ever happening again.

I have not voted for the lesser of TWO EVILS since I was a teenager and knew no better.  IF Americans would have long ago removed their heads from whatever dark void in which they reside and dispensed with supporting "lesser evils", this massive government corruption — at every level — would have perhaps been greatly minimized by now.

And BTW, this is NOT the "most important election" since whenever.  It's astonishing how the Sheeple of Neo-Amerika actually believe that lie every 4 years!

Further, the "end of liberty in America" did not recently occur.  That largely began occurring in 1913, if not earlier when the 14th Amendment was passed (if you don't know why, consider further education on the subject).  As with going off the gold standard, the "end of liberty in America" has been slow and steady over a century or so, and NO ADMINISTRATION of the partisan duopoly has ever made a serious effort to turn US around from this course toward national destruction (well, perhaps ONE President had planned on investigating the Federal Reserve and the fractional banking system, and we know how he was dealt with).

Getting back to this election as a "lesser of two evils" example, when one votes for Obama or Romney, they vote in support of Collectivism of one form or another which breeds only tyranny & slavery:  as a so called "Liberal", Obama and his ilk most often lean toward the Socialist side of Collectivism; while as a so called "Conservative", Romney and his ilk most often lean toward the Fascist side of Collectivism — BOTH of these political-economic systems (Socialism AND Fascism) fall within the ideology of Collectivism which is diametrically opposed to Individualism, and therefore, at enmity with LIBERTY.

And really, if you are one who believes in a supernatural Creator of all things and through whom all liberty is derived, it might be noteworthy for you to consider that since Collectivism is at enmity with liberty, it is therefore also at enmity with the Creator.  Since I happen to be one who believes in such a Creator, I cannot in good conscience support ANY potential leader of our country who subscribes to such an anti-liberty ideology.

Our founding fathers like Jefferson, Adams, Franklin, etc., would be rolling in their graves for over a century now if they were alive and conscience as the masses who, although through much deception, have continued to elect Collectivist after Collectivist, liar after liar, and crook after crook, whose very actions are aligned with the REAL adversary behind the physical-spiritual curtain through which we cannot yet clearly see.

We the Sheeple of Neo-Amerika FULLY DESERVE what's coming — TOTAL ECONOMIC COLLAPSE — and Continuing to elect these Collectivist "lesser evils" who make up the corrupted political "ruling class" will certainly do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to prevent this from occurring.

Whether Obama or Romney are elected, we will continue to witness — as we do EVERY term regardless which so called "lesser evil side" of the partisan duopoly is in power — continued Constitutional violations (and lawlessness in general at all levels of government and within all branches: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial), continued usurpation of our unalienable Creator-given individual liberties, and continued foolish social, monetary & foreign policies.  In short, as a nation we're DOOMED!

Time is PAST for "electing our way out of this mess" — time is NOW for preparing oneself SPIRITUALLY & PHYSICALLY, for the sake of all our loved ones who wish to endure the coming unavoidable apocalypse.

Still, I will vote in good conscience:  NOT in support of ANY so called "lesser evil", but rather FOR truth, justice, and liberty.

Pray for us; for we are confident that we have a good conscience, in all things desiring to live honorably.  — Hebrews 13:18

In liberty always...

Enforcing AVL Ordinances EQUALLY

I wrote the following letter to the AVL City Council, County Commissioners, local law enforcement (Police & Sheriff), and the City Legal Dept... oh, and the local ACLU.

But it seems none of them care about this violation of local City ordinances which mandate a $500 permit fee to expose naked breasts, nor does anyone seem to care about the CIty violating the 14th Amendment in NOT enforcing the law equally.

Not only that, but our Asheville City officials apparently still claim they have "no legal way to stop a topless rally".

Can anyone say, "SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT"???  There — I knew you could!




Enforcing AVL Ordinances EQUALLY

Dear local City of Asheville & Buncombe County representatives, Law Enforcement, and City Legal Department:

There is a so called "protest" coming up on Sunday, Aug 26 that I would like to draw your attention to, in regards to a legal matter.

Upon hearing various arguments regarding this "" event, I published a blogpost entitled "Right to Public Indecency?", which addresses the REAL issue of rights being violated — OUR rights as taxpayers to walk in PUBLIC without being forced to witness "public indecency.

As I continued to consider how the City of Asheville is allowing this event to happen by permit, I began to think about the current City ordinances which prohibit women from revealing particular areas of their breasts, unless they pay a $500 fee each year.

You see, I know about this ordinance because back in 1991/92 when I ran the nightclub 45 Cherry, I was fined a great deal of money for having a ladies show at my facility wherein some of the ladies performing elected to violate our contract and not obey this new local ordinance.

While I was — and still am — in opposition to such an ordinance disguised in a cloak of "moral concern" (but really about money), I also realize that the City of Asheville cannot legally impose certain ordinances upon some, and not upon others:

State & City ordinances are to be enforced EQUALLY among ALL citizens, otherwise violate the Fourteenth Amendment of the US Constitution.

So now we have a non-local business coming to our City in order to parade topless women in our PUBLIC streets while violating our civil rights, and they are somehow being pardoned from paying the fee of $500 for each woman participating.

Folks, this is a blatant violation of the Fourteenth Amendment and is a slap in the face to all local women who are forced to pay the $500 fee each year in order to do the same exact thing — local women who support our local economy!

Beyond the blatant Fourteenth Amendment violation, it makes no sense whatsoever to force local businesses and performers to comply with such ordinances in their PRIVATE businesses where no one is forced to enter, but allow anyone to parade topless in PUBLIC without incurring the "fee" for such "permit".

The City of Asheville must enforce ALL local ordinances EQUALLY or risk a civil lawsuit.

I have also recently been forced to come into compliance of another City of Asheville ordinance found in the UDO, and as a result I am currently facing foreclosure of my home of 24+ years.

Therefore, I ask local government:  If these non-locals are not going to be forced to obey local ordinances, why should we locals obey them?  If this happens on August 26 without enforcing this local ordinance, will this now set a legal precedent that local ordinances are optional?  Seems to me that it will!

And if this "GoTopless" event is allowed to continue without their paying the same fees that locals have to pay, then I personally want my money back from the fines I had to pay back in 1992... and I'd be pretty certain that every single local woman who has paid their share of fees for decades will also want their money back as well, and will no longer be obliged to pay the fee.

Further, doing so will set the legal precedent that We the People who live in the City of Asheville are no longer required to obey ANY City ordinances — either EVERYONE obeys them, or NO ONE obeys them... it's really that simple.

Below my signature are excerpts from the applicable City of Asheville ordinances, their web links, and with my notes.

I look forward to hearing back from you ASAP.

Thank you for your time,

City of Asheville "Adult Entertainer" ordinances

(I've bolded applicable terms in the statutes, along with my notes.)

Sec. 9-26. - Definitions.
The following words, terms and phrases, when used in this article, shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this section, except where the context clearly indicates a different meaning:
Business includes each trade, occupation, profession, business and franchise taxed under this article.
Seasonal means a business that is conducted for profit six months out of the year or less.

Sec. 9-29. - Persons required to pay tax.
Each person who conducts a business within the city is subject to this article. A person "conducts a business" when he engages in one act of business taxed under this article. He conducts the business "within the city" if he maintains a business location within the city or if, either personally or through agents, he:
Solicits business within the city limits; or
Picks up or delivers goods or services within the city limits.

• NOTE: By these local legal definitions, the GoTopless organization IS in fact operating as "Seasonal" during the so called, "GoTopless protest", soliciting business within the Asheville city limits by advertising themselves and their website, upon which it sells wares on their Shop page for profit.

Sec. 9-172. - Definitions.
The following words, terms and phrases, when used in this article, shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this section, except where the context clearly indicates a different meaning:
Adult establishment means an adult bookstore, adult motion picture theatre, adult mini motion picture theatre or adult live entertainment business as defined in this section.
Adult live entertainment means any performance of or involving the actual presence of real people which exhibits specified sexual activities or specified anatomical areas, as defined in this section.
Adult live entertainment business means any establishment or business wherein adult live entertainment is shown for observation by patrons.
Entertainer means any person who provides entertainment within or at an adult establishment, whether or not a fee is charged or accepted for entertainment and whether or not entertainment is provided by that person as an employee or an independent contractor.
Specified anatomical areas means:
Less than completely and opaquely covered:
Human genitals, pubic region,
Buttock, or
Female breast below a point immediately above the top of the areola; or
Human male genitals in a discernibly turgid state, even if completely and opaquely covered.

• NOTE: By these local legal definitions, the "GoTopless" organization/business IS a form of an "Adult establishment" (nothing in the statute specifies a "building" as part of the definition) because it provides "adult live entertainment": there IS a presence of real people exhibiting "specified anatomical areas", which include the entire female breast.

Sec. 9-173. - Application for licenses.
Business license.
It shall be unlawful for any person to operate or maintain an adult establishment in the city unless the owner or operator thereof has obtained an adult establishment license from the city. It shall also be unlawful for any person to operate such business after such license has been revoked or suspended by the city or has expired.
It shall be unlawful for any entertainer to knowingly perform any work, service or entertainment directly related to the operation of an unlicensed adult establishment within the city.
It shall be prima facie evidence that any adult establishment that fails to have posted, in the manner required by this article, an adult establishment license, has not obtained such a license. In addition, it shall be prima facie evidence that any entertainer who performs any service or entertainment in an adult establishment in which an adult establishment license is not posted, in the manner required by this article, had knowledge that such business was not licensed.
Entertainer license. It is unlawful for any person to work as an entertainer at an adult establishment without first obtaining a license to do so from the city, or to work as an entertainer at an adult establishment after such person's license to do so has been revoked or suspended by the city or has expired.

Sec. 9-180. - Violations and penalties.
Any person violating any provision of this article shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a Class 3 misdemeanor and be punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.00 or imprisoned for not more than 30 days. Each day such violation shall continue shall constitute a separate offense.

• NOTE: By these local legal definitions, BOTH the owner of the adult establishment AND the entertainer of the adult establishment are required to obtain licenses, otherwise be fined accordingly.
