Jeremy Blosser on ‘Teamwork’ – Words of Wisdom on Facebook

Half of you are reacting by saying you’re done with a party that won’t hold anyone accountable no matter what, half are saying we* need to replace some more SREC members. This is what divided we fall looks like. I realize getting people on the same page tactically is a pipe dream, let alone keeping them there.

End NSA Spying Defeat the Patriot Act - Rand

On Wednesday, GOP Presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) took to the floor of the Senate for 10 hours and 30 minutes to filibuster the renewal of Section 215 of the Patriot Act. The controversial section, which is used by the National Security Agency to justify its bulk collection of Americans’ data, is set to expire at the end of the month.

Paul held the floor from 1:18 p.m. to 11:49 p.m. on Wednesday. Politico noted that by extending his filibuster to the brink of Thursday, Paul prevented Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) from filing cloture on a bill that would extend the Patriot Act.

It is really that simple. We need a Governor that will govern the government, so that it will LEAVE YOU ALONE! Somehow that role has been reversed and governors and governments are micro-managing peaceful people as if they have forgotten where their authority came from in the first place!

A Dax Ewbank administration would be run by two simple principles:

Do everything you have agreed to do.

Do not encroach on other people or their property.

This article is very much food for thought. As first I thought the BLM versus Rancher Bundy was a pretty simple and straightforward story. It is turning out that it is any thing but. Embedded in this story, elements of: Senate corruption; land grab on behalf of Chinese company; Agenda 21; false desert tortoise claims by govt; Senator orders alteration of boundaries to benefit one of his contributors; govt euthanizing the same tortoises that they say are endangered; a move to force humans from remote areas into densely packed cities; and more.
