Crime Pays Arizona Courts, and Your Criminality is Their Livelihood

Crime pays….the state.  Make no mistake about it, there is a reason many people are beginning to refer to highway patrols as road pirates.  They’re not out there keeping the roads safe for you and me, they’re out there looking for easy targets, fat booty for the state.  Need proof?  A recent investigation of Arizon courts by the ACLU discovered the courts were making serious coin catching you up in violations that garnered them fines.  The courts are making a handsome living collecting fines from you, so why would they ever want to find you not guilty of violations that lead to fines, and why would they ever want to show mercy when their livelihoods depend on your criminalization? from phoenixnewtimes.com Compounded fines and fees can be a major revenue stream for these city courts. But for residents, the municipal court system can be a Kafkaesque part of daily life. The executive director for the American Civil Liberties Union in Arizona described city courts as “a revenue-generating system that turns into an endless maze where there are very few ways for people to get out.” So, why are these city courts the top earners? For one thing, municipal judges in Paradise Valley are unpaid volunteers, which greatly reduces expenses. Paradise Valley also imposed greater court fees than other cities. In most cities, court fees on top of penalties were...

Meet Prometheus’ 21st Century Fire, Anonymity

PAUL GORDON – Prometheus was a greek god who defied Zeus and paid a terrible, eternal price for that betrayal.  Prometheus dared believe that humanity should have the great secrets of the gods, represented in the iconic form of fire.  According to greek legend, Zeus had taken away the secret of fire from humans.  Prometheus, however, loved humanity, and decided to defy the greatest god of them all, and restored the secret of fire to humanity. What was his penalty?  Prometheus was tied to a rock, naked, splayed in a way that allows eagles to swoop down and daily...

Arkansas Restaurant Uses Aquaponics to Grow Own Herbs, Spices

Aquaponics is one of the most promising technologies and practices that offers self-sustainability for individuals and free associations, so you bet I’m excited when I read a story about a restaurant in Arkansas that is using aquaponics to grow its own herbs and spices that it prepares and sells to happy customers.  One thing is certain if you want fresh food, go to Slye Gardens. from thv11.com CONWAY, Ark.(KTHV) – From tank to plate, a Conway restaurant is changing the way they get their herbs and spices. Aquaponics is a system where fish are raised in tanks and plants...

3D Printed Gun Files Are Being Sold on the Dark Web, and 3ders.org Calls that “Dangerous”

3ders.org is afraid of your freedom.  That’s the only way you can interpretthe article they posted called “3D printed gun files are selling for $12 on dark web, new report reveals.”  In the article, they warn of the dangers of 3D printing, that people can, gasp, print guns without any record by the government to be able to track who has what guns.  That’s right, the writers of a publication dedicated to an industry that creates self-reliance, self-ownership in the form of individual and small scale manufacturing is afraid of your freedom to own the tools that can defend you because those tools aren’t registered with the state. Well, I have a very different take.  The fact that gun plans are being sold on the dark web for $12 on average is not alarming, but encouraging.  In the war of ideas between liberty and coercion, the power of demonstated liberty (in this case being to freely manufacture and own an untraceable tool of self defense) will go a long way to help the beneficiaries of that demonstrated liberty come to an acceptance of the ‘dangers’ of true liberty. from 3ders.org We all know of the benefits that 3D printing technology can offer and the potential that it has to revolutionize manufacturing and even save lives, but less frequently discussed are the inherent dangers. The open-source, accessible nature of the...

Wired Magazine Begs Gov to Control Autonomous Cars

The folks at Wired celebrate government control over their lives, at least as far as autonoous cars goes.  In an article in Wired titled “Congress Finally Tackles the Murky World of Robocar Rules,” Wired applauds the decision of a few hundred people to decide the rules and regulations as far as autonomous cars goes for 300 plus million people.  Congress apparently is set to take aim at the burgeouning industry this September, but don’t worry folks, it’s for the good of the whole, and, to be  sure, no one will personally gain from the decisions that a few hundred...

Oklahoma DA Files No Charges Against Man Who Killed Teen Attempting Break Into His Home

No surpries here.  In a clear-cut case, the DA has declined to charged a man for shooting and killing a teen attempting to break into his home. This falls under our “play stupid games, win stupid prizes” category. from koco.com At 3:41 a.m. on Saturday, June 24, emergency dispatchers received a call that someone who tried to break into a Midwest City home had been shot. The 62-year-old caller said he was at home when he heard noises outside and armed himself with a 12-gauge shotgun as someone continued to try to enter the home. The man told investigators...

Marylanders Beg SCOTUS to Overturn 4th Circuit Anti-Gun, Anti-Human-Defense Ruling

After the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that gun rights are only selective and that the state can define what constitutes selective, a group of Marylanders are attempting to get the Supreme Court to visit the ruling.  They hope to get the Supreme Court to reassert less restrictive interpretations of what constitutes ‘common sense’ gun control. As I have often said, there is no Rule of Law, there is only Rule of Power.  Individuals tasked with deciding what is “constitutional” have the ghosts in language to assist them to produce almost whatever ruling they desire to produce, one...

Italy’s Growing Assault on Food and Drink Liberty Supported by Self-Righteous Tourist Magazines

Italy is known for its food.  Italian food is synonymous with quality, as is italian wine.  Yet, in the home for high cuisine, it seems the Italian state is finding itself increasingly choosing to become food and drink police, dictacting what you can sell, what you can drink, and even what times you can drink.  The Italian people are chaffing under the tightening of the leash while tourist publications like Food and Wine are moralizing on the side of the food police, even suggesting that a ban on drinking wine after 2AM is no big deal becaue, after all,...

Homeschooling Reduces State Theft

It turns out that homeschooling might do more than save minds, it might save people money.  Thanks to homeschooling, you might end up paying less taxes this year.  According to a study from the  National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) , homeschooling has saved states millions of dollars.  This is NOT the main argument I would make in defense of homeschooling, but the fact that homeschooling DOES save states money further demonstrates that human beings, if left to their own devices, with layers of bureaucracy removed, can do it better and cheaper than any coercive enterprise system could ever...

Court Rules Condo Association Cannot Force Man to Meet Contractual Agreement if it Violates His Free Speech “Rights”

  A recent court decision struck down a trial court’s prohibition on a man’s social media postings, ruling that a condominium associaiton could not prevent a man fro posting about the association or the people that live in the condiminium, even if the prohibition was part of a contract the man had entered into. The court stated, “[A] blanket prohibition of [Fox’s] online speech constitutes an unconstitutional prior restraint on free speech. … Freedom of speech does not extend to obscenity, defamation, fraud, incitement, true threats, and speech integral to criminal conduct. [But “s]peech that does not fall into...

Is the Military Losing Its Ability to Fight Capable Foes?

from theamericanconservative.com – In the conflicts currently at play in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, and elsewhere in the Middle East, America practices a policy of “military first.” But this constant use of force will not bring the conflicts to an end or stability to the region.
