I like Del Bigtree. His show, The Highwire, and the organization behind it, the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), are educating people and fighting for justice. They’re really doing it. They report on the news, they discuss the issues, they keep the pressure on, and they remain positive about it.
For no People will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can they easily be subdued, where Knowledge is diffusd and Virtue preservd . On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own Weight, without the Aid of foreign Invaders.Samuel Adams
I recently had a short exchange with someone on social media (I try to keep them short) who objected to people using religious exemptions to avoid giving in to bullies who demand they be “vaccinated” or lose their livelihoods. She said they are not really religious. To this I replied
I just finished reading Joseph Plummer’s novel Leaving the Illusion. I thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, once I started reading, I just kept going and finished it in one night. It gave me the feeling of a cross between The Celestine Prophesy and a Philip K. Dick story. The former
At some point in your life, if you’ve been paying attention, you discover the meanings hidden in the stories and idioms of your childhood. For example, I’d used the idiom “burning the candle at both ends” for a good chunk of my life before I finally realized “ends” referred to

The way you choose to solve problems in your life says a lot about who you are – how ethical you are, how much integrity you have, and whether you are a creative personality or a destructive one. So, I always find it interesting when I hear people complaining about
Oh, lots of lawyers are now debating whether or not mandating vaccination is constitutional. They are either fools, or in on it. As I’ve pointed out before, the constitution is a list of rules written by men. It exists as a means to guide people who are unable to understand
In September of 2019 it started. I already had an inkling about what was going on, even then. But, of course, I had no idea just how far and how fast it would go. And even now, nobody is really talking about it – or if they are, they are
If you live alone on a desert island you have no need of rights. To you, they are meaningless. You do, however, have responsibilities. These are things you must do if you are to continue living. You have no choice in the matter. These rules are inextricably linked to your
...whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them; nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle; and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it.Richard Henry Lee
Wow, you have some nerve lady.
So I just published a short rant on the war against independent contractors. I wanted to leave it at that because simple is sometimes better. But there’s more to it, of course. Like all high level thuggery there is an elegance to the fight. Kind of like the elegance of
Right now in New Jersey (Bills A5936/S4204) and California a battle is raging over the right to be an independent contractor. That is… to get paid without withholding and all the rules that go along with traditional employment – i.e., to be an individual making your own decisions and negotiating
I recently found this article in my archives from 2013, but it’s still pretty relevant so I’m publishing it (finally!) Might work for Halloween, too, because when you don’t do your own thinking you start to look like the above pic and you get spider webs in your brain. :-)
