Free speech all day, every day!

What if you woke up in a world where you were not allowed to let people know how you feel? What if in that world, the rules changed and were interpreted on an individual basis? What if in this bizarre world, you’re told that you have certain freedoms, and yet, despite these freedoms, you are accused of breaking the rules? What if, worse yet, when asked to defend yourself, you’re instructed to stay away from certain words, terms, ideas, and concepts, the very concepts from which your freedoms are derived? Sounds pretty close to 1984, right? Sounds even closer to Nazi Germany, doesn’t it?

Here you will find a ten minute video regarding the arrest and trial of Michael Hoffman, who while standing on public property was accosted by law enforcement for holding a sign that expressed his beliefs.

As you can see, Mr. Hoffman was arrested because the JAA law enforcement stated that he needs to follow procedures as declared by Debra Braga to assert free speech. This is what free speech is according to our constitution, which we must uphold so long as we would like to be free; The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individual’s religious practices. It guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely. It also guarantees the right of citizens to assemble peaceably and to petition their government.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

All this from

So, we’ve heard  Elizabeth Hernandez state that the JAA is public property. We’ve heard Judge Shore say the JAA is public property. Everything should have then moved on smoothly; law enforcement made a mistake due to their ignorance of the law, Mr. Hoffman was arrested, and in trial he should be able to defend himself and subsequently sue the state for wrongful arrest, but the defense is barred from recording the trial, why? The O.J. trial was not only recorded, it was televised. The defense is also barred from speaking words such as free speech and first amendment; this is absolute lunacy, but why do I care? Because if we, the people who are to uphold the constitution, don’t bat an eye at this, we are inviting those powers at large to stomp on more and more of our rights. My question to you is not whether or not you care about this, or if you should care- no, my question is; where does it end? After they obliterate what’s left of free speech, none of us will have the right to tell the government to stop trampling on the rest of the constitution. You don’t like or agree with the constitution? Well, it’s due to the constitution that you have the freedom to denounce it, so maybe don’t denounce or you’ll one day wake up in a world where “authority” figureheads lead you like the blind leading the blind.

This video from an incident in Florida is proof that matters only get worse; this asinine judge doesn’t understand the law, the cops don’t understand the law, the lawyers don’t understand the law, and the only people who do understand it are told that they can’t use it in defense of their behavior.

Hey, Judge Shore, that courtroom isn’t yours, it’s ours. Your salary comes from us, we paid to build the JAA property, we paid for your courtroom, and we pay your salary.

Help me spread this into every conceivable corner of the internet. It’s time these idiots learn that they are not above the law, that they cannot interpret the law to suit themselves, and that they do not have authority over us. Authority is an arbitrary concept, a concept designed to keep us–the people–in check because the fat cats are few, scared, and weak, and so they exert this authority in order to confuse us, sedate us, separate us. Lawyers, stand up for Hoffman. Judges, chastise your fellows in raven robes when they abuse their power.

C’mon on people, do you not see what will become of us if we let them shove us around? Whether or not you realize it, we were not given a democracy.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Franklin was queried as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation. In the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Convention, a lady asked Dr. Franklin “Well Doctor what have we got, a republic or a monarchy.” Franklin replied, “A republic . . . if you can keep it.”

Looks like we’ve let it slip from our grasp…so please, spread the word. Otherwise, next time you want to say what’s on your mind, you may have to think twice, swallow your pride, your anger, suck up the injustice, and remember that you did nothing to fight for your given freedoms.

Product review – 3 in 1 pack penis rings

The 3 in 1 pack penis rings is another of my Amazon purchases. Considering the price and the product’s durability, this is a great buy.

The 3 pack came with 3 different colored rings; they’re all the same size and have the same pliability; I think they might be for the slightly larger than average man because the width of the opening is larger than I’ve seen seen in the past, but they’re nice and soft and slide on quite easily with a little lube.

This is probably a misunderstood product, as there are many many varieties of rings; it is simply meant to keep some of the blood from flowing back out of the penis, which provides a more robust erection. The good news is that the pleasure goes both ways, and this basic set of rings is an awesome way for two loving people to spice up their romance.

Product Review- The Sorcerer’s Crossing

The Sorcerer’s Crossing is a book by Taisha Abelar, who supposedly worked alongside Carlos Castaneda under the tutelage of Don Juan, an old, Indian sorcerer.

It is difficult to describe why this book is a failure; I am very enamored with Castaneda’s work. As such, it will be difficult to keep the two authors separate since they supposedly worked together to discover the totality of themselves, so I will preface by saying this: I have put Castaneda’s ideas to work; I have practiced inner silence, losing self importance, dreaming, the magical passes, not-doing, etc., and found the teachings of Don Juan to be real.

If you have not read any of these works–works by either Abelar or Castaneda–then you can’t possibly conceive of this situation, and that’s fine, but there are many out there familiar with Castaneda’s work; many believers and many skeptics, and yet it appears that neither the believers nor the skeptics put into practice the teachings, but this is a different point for a different conversation. What I can say here is that Castaneda openly admitted in his works that he did not provide the sorcerers’ real names nor did he disclose the actual location where anything took place- he blatantly states that in his novels. That being said, the characters; Don Juan, Don Genaro, Vicente, Pablito, LaGorda, LaCatalina; they are so vastly dissimilar that they are either real people or the product of a wonderfully talented author; the former is my belief because as I stated: I’ve practiced the ideas and they work for me, however, the ideas, people, and situations presented in The Sorcerer’s Crossing are not real.

I say this because the characters she presents are one dimensional; they all talk the same way, act the same way- it’s obviously just Abelar’s fabrication. She is trying so hard to jam one book with the level of mystery that was elicited by Castaneda’s works, but he had to stretch it out over 12 or 13 books. It’s difficult, really, to explain this. I don’t know if Abelar did or didn’t ever work with Don Juan or what role she actually played in the new cycle, or she if ever practiced anything herself. Maybe she really did, but the book itself feels fabricated; the story of a silly girl trying to mimic the vast eternity that was Don Juan Matus.

In conclusion, I want you to make your own decision, but my suggestion is to not waste your money on The Sorcerer’s Crossing.

Product review- Singer assorted safety pins

At one time or another, we all find ourselves in need of a safety pin. Remember when in cartoons, babies diaper’s were held in place with a safety pin? Was that a thing that actually happened? How many babies got stabbed in their chubby bellies?

I don’t have a baby, but I did need some safety pins; I used them to hold fabric in place while I sewed. These safety pins worked pretty good, but I mean, are there crappy ones? The Singer set came with 50 and they vary in size. It’s a good product and inexpensive.
