I didn't feel the need to post this on the anniversary of the worst terrorism attack on our nation's soil. However, it must be considered that on that day, the terrorists did, in fact, score a massive victory and our country has been markedly changed for the worse.

We lost a huge amount of our civil liberties at the hands of ever-increasing government and it's not likely we will ever see them returned peacefully. The last two administrations have been two of the worst for increasing government overreach and control over our everyday lives.

We have the TSA, unfathomable government surveillance on our innocent citizens, and a perpetual state of undeclared war in multiple nations in violation of international law and morality. The list goes on, but those are more than enough for those concerned about liberty to be seething with anger, yet the people accept it.

The only difference between the democrat and republican parties is the way in which they wish to control you. But make no mistake, they both want limitless control over you regardless of the words they craft to convince you to vote for them.

A final thought: there is no morally or ethically acceptable circumstance in which to initiate the use of force or fraud upon another individual, group, or nation. It's time we actually consider that when we elect our leaders, and when we watch how they govern.
How much more freedom must Americans lose before the terrorists can declare victory?

There is a special place for people who prey on the elderly. I want to post this to get the word out to anyone who doesn't know about it.

Today, my grandmother answered the phone and was greeted by scum in human form. She was told her grandson was in jail in Canada on drug charges and needed $1200 wired immediately.

Fortunately, my grandfather was with her and called my father to verify the situation. Unfortunately, she was still visibly upset even after seeing me.

Please, inform elderly friends and family of this horrible scam. I know it may be hard for them to understand how evil people can be, but you could help prevent a loss of a great deal of money, or for our loved ones in bad health, a heart attack.

Is anyone else using Klout? It's a bit of online vanity but I'm curious.

This is the oldest compressed gas cylinder I have seen that is still in service. It passed a hydrostatic test even though it was made in 1918. That was the oldest stamp I could find, but I suppose it could have an older illegible mark.

This week is an interesting week in the Supreme Court. In light of the cases related to non-straights, I would suggest that this is as good a time as any to investigate the libertarian philosophy of governance.

I sympathize with those among us who are relegated to the proverbial back-burner of the civil rights movement. What's more, is I was incensed when I went to apply for my marriage license. There is no justifiable reason that the government should need to approve, sanction or profit from my union with my wife.

The government unfairly treats married and single people differently under the law. This is another situation in which the government has tried to sculpt social behavior and it is time we stood up and said we won't have it any longer.

The only thing that should have ANY involvement from government in relation to people joining together as a couple is contract enforcement. A marriage is at the least a social contract between two people. If a church wants to "marry" two people, then that church should do so. That ceremony should not change anything with regards to taxes or other relationships to the government. The two should be completely free to sign a binding contract with each other to provide a legal status as next of kin or family. The government should only be involved if a bound couple should seek to dissolve their union and only as the legal arbiter of the contract signed by the two parties.

This all boils down to the non-aggression principle of libertarianism. You should be free to do whatever you wish, so long as you do not initiate an aggression upon another person. Freedom is only as scary as you let it seem. Look at the records of your representatives in government at all levels and always vote for more freedom, never for less.

Looks like I'm glad I didn't do much with Instagram. Also looks like I'll be deleting all photos and closing my account. At this rate, my Facebook account is looking less and less like something I want to contain any personal information or photos.

Lol. I already trust Google way more than most companies. I'm making an effort to use G+ in place of anything on FB. The only interactions ill eventually have on FB are with those who don't have G+ and aren't switching.

Edward Snowden returned for another incredible AMA and with a single answer summed up why we need to keep fighting for our right to privacy. #redditAMA #EdwardSnowden #AMAzing http://buff.ly/1ECcEFT

Food, American style: extreme!
 
Why am I reading about this
Extreme eating has hit the nation's state fairs, where vendors are one-upping the junk food competition with offerings like deep fried meatloaf and English Toffee Fudge Puppies.

The sad part is that I'd love to eat a lot of that. The meatloaf on a stick looks great!

I have a great Canon EOS lens for sale. The 70-200mm f/2.8 IS USM lens is a spectacular item.  It's in excellent condition and includes all the accessories that came in the box (lens hood, tripod ring, front and rear lens caps, soft case).  

I had purchased it for a few particular instances and haven't used it much since.  I would like it to go to a good home and am willing to negotiate a good price that will make it a good deal for both myself and the buyer.

I've attached a link to the lens on B&H for reference purposes only.  Let me know if you are interested, or if you know someone who may be.  Thanks!
