Feb 7, 2013 - As anyone who has seen LAPD in action knows, they are dangerous armed thugs.  I used to like to visit Venice Beach when I went to SoCal, but I quit doing it because of the roving gangs of armed, menacing, and highly belligerent thugs roaming throughout the crowd - the LAPD.  I've seen them many times, wandering around with huge chips on their shoulders, harassing people at random, going up to people and hassling them, demanding people's IDs, bullying people, trying as hard as they can to start something.  On my last visit there, I found a cellphone on the beach.  I picked it up and took it to one of the police officers.   As I walked up to a group of them, one of them jumped out from his little gang, straight-armed me in the chest, and demanded, in a most belligerent way, that I tell him what I wanted.  After I said I only wanted to turn in a lost cellphone, he then demanded that I show him my ID.  I just walked away from him.  I've often wished I'd gotten his name, so I could file a complaint against him.   But at the time, I just wanted to get away from this nutjob before he shot me.  That's just one of dozens of cases I've seen of LAPD abuses.

Christopher Dorner was an LAPD cop.  After the LAPD forced him out for exposing abuses, he went on a rampage in SoCal.  HERE is his unedited manifesto.  Based on all the innocent people LAPD has already shot in the panic to kill him, I believe what he wrote is true.  If anything, the behavior of LAPD and other nearby police departments has done nothing but prove his allegations.  In the first day of the big manhunt for him, LAPD and Torrance PD opened fire on multiple vehicles that vaguely resembled Dorner's, without even finding out first who was inside.  They have already shot several civilians who did nothing and had nothing to do with the case.

  This blue truck belongs to a couple women who were out delivering early morning newspapers when LAPD opened fire on them for no reason at all - other than that they were driving a truck that VAGUELY matched Dorner's.   Dozens of bullet holes.  This was only one of TWO such incidents in Torrance alone on Feb 7, where police opened fire on completely innocent drivers just for driving a pickup truck.  The other truck was a Honda, so obviously it didn't take much of a match for LAPD thugs to start shooting.   Details HERE

I think that most of the time, we vote not for the best candidate, but for the least objectionable candidate or for the candidate who is NOT the candidate we'd especially HATE to see win the election.  This is especially true in the election for President.  For 2008, we have a genuine alternative choice in Ron Paul.  For more information on his clearly-stated views on numerous important national issues, visit his web site at

I'm a strong believer in the principles of personal liberty and Libertarianism, and a supporter of The Libertarian Party.  I am an avid defender of liberty and individual rights.  It's tragic that people grumble about how crooked politics is and how out of control the government is, yet they keep voting the same smooth-talking, self-serving liars, crooks, and idiots back into office.  People won't vote Libertarian, even if they agree with the Libertarian ideals, because they feel a Libertarian can't win.  And the Libertarian Party can't win because the people won't vote for them!  I think most people are afraid of real change.  I vote Libertarian when I can, and support Republicans when the Republican/Democrat race is close.  With few exceptions, the worst Republican is a much better choice than the best Democrat, even though most Republicans leave a lot to be desired, too.  Keep in mind that the Internet, at least so far, is a Libertarian environment.

  After the debacles of the Wall Street, financial, and real estate meltdowns beginning around 2007/2008. I'm probably less Libertarian than I used to be.

Before Sept 11, the steady erosion of our liberty was a significant concern to many Americans.   After Sept 11, much of the concern for liberty has been dropped in favor of the appearance of safety.


May 10, 2005 - Congress screws all Americans by slipping a National ID Card program into a spending bill.  Remember those sleazy, crooked bastards at the next election!  Read more on it HERE and the link in the title.

"Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order [referring to the 1991 LA Riot]. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond - i.e., an "extraterrestrial" invasion or "Terrorists" attacks, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government."
-- Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991


"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty or safety.  Nor are they likely to end up with either." 

-- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania (1759)

"The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases." (Thomas Jefferson)

Americans used to roar like lions for liberty; now they bleat like sheep for security.  (Norman Vincent Peale)
