Website on Govt Limitations
Original Intent Treatise - Constitutions
http://www.originalintent.org/edu/constitutions.php
You might enjoy this web site. It reveals dc authority is limited to 10 sq miles only. dc cant legislate the states, maybe only in limited Commerce clause, but only promoting Commerce between the states not limiting it. Laws from Congress effect fed employees and forts. Supreme court can,t change laws, they were never given power, only rule on Contract disputes. Enjoy [Anonymous]

        There is an article in the canadian free press that states that we never had an consulate office in Bengazhi. It was a huge CIA headquaters that was hit. Story indicates we were trading selling tons of weapons into Turkey for Syria,s demise. Russia an or Syria has been trying to destabilize the dollar for oil, they may have been behind the hit. Lame stream media only talk about Rices talking points vs what we were doing in Bengazhi and why or who hit us.

I think Prison Planet is an Alex Jones site and I don't trust him, because he seems to be a zionist, although much of his info may be true. On the other hand much of it seems to be intended to make people despair.

Nice article, I read the one about how small governments are more prosperous which sounds awesome for prosperity... but then it got me thinking.... why wouldn't a big non-prosperous kingdom just come and take their hard work?  Yup, that is what happened.  France said damn... nice economy and started a war for their riches.  Just my person bias creeping in.  Great articles and I look forward to reading more.

The Business of Bad News (airs Saturday at 3PM on FNC)
http://www.foxbusiness.com/on-air/stossel/blog/2013/01/11/business-bad-news-airs-saturday-3pm-fnc
Posted by John Stossel | January 11, 2013

When tragedy strikes, what do you do if your company is at the center of it?
What if you manufacture the Bushmaster rifle? What if you run BP when it spills oil?
On this week's show, Rohit Bhargava and Fraser Seitel explain crisis management strategy, like how Apple handled Steve Jobs' illness, and how the company that makes Skittles reacted after Trayvon Martin was killed holding them.

Would you eat what these rats ate? The pictures are scary, but misleading. The media exaggerate bad news. "The Skeptical Environmentalist" author, Bjorn Lomborg, addresses claims about genetically modified food, and global warming, as in this Newsweek article about "The End of Pasta." http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2012/12/09/bakken-oil-boom-and-climate-change-threaten-the-future-of-pasta.html

[Pro-libertarian Dr. Mercola reports lots of evidence that genetically modified food is dangerous, both to eaters and to farmland. See http://mercola.com and use the search box and enter "GM" or "GMO". I believe genetic modification would be okay, if it were not under the control of corporations and statists. - Luck]

Julie Gunlock of the Independent Women's Forum points out how the danger of BPA products has been overblown by activists. http://www.iwf.org/

Some people earn money thanks to people's (often irrational) fear of bad news. Janet Nelson of Epicenter Supplies http://theepicenter.com/ and Aton Edwards of the International Preparedness Network are entrepreneurs who recommend "doomsday prepper" products like "bear repellant." http://readyforanything.org/

Celebrities seem to live by a different standard. Sordid publicity makes them more famous. Just look at Kim Kardashian, or Lindsay Lohan, or Chris Brown. Kennedy, our show's special correspondent, and PR expert Howard Bragman explain why "bad news" affects careers differently in Hollywood. http://www.reputation.com/

Finally, I'm grateful to Brian Doherty and Marianne Stebbins for reminding libertarians that our bad news - Ron Paul's defeat and Republicans' treatment of him - is just one step on the road to peace, freedom, and sound money. http://reason.com/archives/2013/01/08/ron-pauls-last-stand --- http://mnlibertynetwork.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/live-free-speech-marianne-stebbins-to-the-ron-paul-we-are-the-future-rally-tampa-august-26-2012/

I think I heard that Julie Borowski is scheduled to speak at PorcFest this year (or another function?). So I looked her up. I think I saw her on videos last year during the presidential campaign. I listened to some more of her videos today and especially like the one on Gay marriage at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQJcJAJSMxg . But it seems she's pretty much always fairly brilliant.

She gets down to the issue of what business is it of the govt that people's marriages must be licensed -- a thought most seem incapable of grasping.

Julie's a pretty socially conservative person, which I think is important for making the case that you don't have to be some crazy libertine to support the right of others to live their lives as they see fit.

Great point, even though I don't share Julie's socially conservative views, I respect her support of liberty and look forward to hearing her speak. The distinction between "I think this personally" and "I wish to use government to impose this view on others" is so critical and so often overlooked.

Seems sensible to me.  If you don't like gay marriage the easy solution is to contract with whoever else you prefer.  Marriage should be a private contract between two or more consenting adults and their god if they have one.  My two "legal" marriages were straight (open) monogamies, my previous first marriage was a polyandry with an unenforceable contract once my cohusband declared himself born again and ripped things apart.

I'm a fiscally conservative crazy libertine and I support the right of others to spend their own (as in earned or inherited, not stolen by fraud, taxes or other aggression) money as they see fit.  Julie's a pretty thing but I doubt she'd be interested in a greying atheist widower like me.

[I'm showing below only the latter part of KrisAnne's article. To read more thoroughly about the origin of the Tea Party movement, click this link:]
http://www.krisannehall.com/index.php/blog/54-historic-tea-party-roots-247-years-resiting-tyranna

The Real Origin of the Tea Party Movement
[by Atty. KrisAnne Hall]
...
Samuel Adams had this to say in May 1764:
"For if our Trade may be taxed, why not our Lands? Why not the Produce of our Lands & everything we possess or make use of? This we apprehend annihilates our Charter Right to govern & tax ourselves. It strikes at our British privileges, which as we have never forfeited them, we hold in common with our Fellow Subjects who are Natives of Britain. If Taxes are laid upon us in any shape without our having a legal Representation where they are laid, are we not reduced from the Character of free Subjects to the miserable State of tributary Slaves?"
 
Samuel Adams would later organize the Sons of Liberty which coordinated the famous Boston Tea Party of 1773.
 
But let’s not forget the ladies of the TEA party movement.  Penelope Barker of Edenton, North Carolina organized the Edenton Tea Party in 1774.  In the home of her friend Elizabeth King, she and 50 other women signed a declaration and sent it to be published in a London newspaper.  In part the declaration said:
 
“Maybe it has only been men who have protested the king up to now.  That only means we women have taken too long to let our voices be heard.  We are signing our names to a document, not hiding ourselves behind costumes like the men in Boston did at their tea party.  The British will know who we are…We, the aforesaid Ladys will not promote ye wear of any manufacturer from England until such time that all acts which tend to enslave our Native country shall be repealed."

Much like the liberal media of today these principled women were attacked and portrayed by the British as bad mothers and loose women.  However, the colonists praised these ladies and the women of the colonies followed their lead and began boycotting British goods.
 
In light of historical fact, it is clear to any rational and reasonable mind that the modern TEA party movement is not a modern movement at all.  The TEA party represents the heart of the American ideal of liberty and self-government.  These brave men and women did not sit idly by in the face of oppression and tyranny because they understood their history and knew their rights.  They understood that their rights came from God and had been guaranteed to them beginning at the 1100 Charter of Liberties, through the Magna Carter of 1215, and the English Bill of Rights of 1688.  Their liberty was not a modern development and neither is ours.  That is why, in spite of Rachel Maddow's pronouncement that the TEA party is over because of small rallies, the TEA party is not going away.  It has been here for 247 years and will continue as long as the founding principles of America still burn in the hearts of patriots.
