Muse website, and right wing libertarians

I was searching the website about a band called Muse and what their political persuasions were. An interesting task given that they are foreign and US and European political terms don’t exactly match up. Their recent songs though seem very libertarian to me. On their forum, they used the term Liberal which is generally the european way of saying Libertarian, and to them is tied closely to anarchists. Continue reading

If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone. Continue reading

What Israel can teach us about security

What Israel can teach us about security

While North America’s airports groan under the weight of another sea-change in security protocols, one word keeps popping out of the mouths of experts: Israelification.

That is, how can we make our airports more like Israel’s, which deal with far greater terror threats with far less inconvenience.

“It is mind boggling for us Israelis to look at what happens in North America, because we went through this 50 years ago,” said Rafi Sela, the president of AR Challenges, a global transportation security consultancy. He has worked with the RCMP, the U.S. Navy Seals and airports around the world.

“Israelis, unlike Canadians and Americans, don’t take s— from anybody. When the security agency in Israel (the ISA) started to tighten security and we had to wait in line for – not for hours – but 30 or 40 minutes, all hell broke loose here. We said, `We’re not going to do this. You’re going to find a way that will take care of security without touching the efficiency of the airport.'” Continue reading

Third Party Rising?

I came across this today while searching other conservative blogs, and must say I am very impressed!  I am not decided on the best course of action for reform our nation, whether it be through the Republican party or a new party.  The benefit of the using the Republicans is that they, as Glenn Beck has stated, already have the framework in place.  However, this existing framework has a stigma attached to it that many find distasteful.  It would be best that the reformist movement be open to left and right wing individuals that love the constitution and our country.  All this said I would like to share this new “American Federalist Party” platform being developed online.  It is very interesting and in many ways a perfect example of the concerns of We the People.

What is Independent Thinking?

What is Independent Thinking? -by Sharon Presley, Ph.D., Executive Director, RIT

The Oxford Unabridged Dictionary offers many definitions of independent, including “not depending on the authority of others” and “not dependent on others for forming an opinion.” Making up your own mind, in other words. But what does that really mean? Does it mean forming an opinion without input from others? No, of course not, otherwise we “reinvent the wheel” every time we make a decision. We all need relevant information and data on which to base our opinions. It’s the way that we seek information and how we apply it that makes us dependent or independent thinkers. If we uncritically accept whatever values or ideas we’ve been taught by parents, teachers or church, never questioning these ideas or asking ourselves if these ideas really make sense, then we are dependent thinkers (even if the ideas are true!).

An Independent Republic Still? – by Pat Buchanan

An Independent Republic Still? – by Pat Buchanan An Independent Republic Still? by Patrick J. Buchanan Two hundred thirty years have elapsed since Jefferson’s document was signed in Philadelphia, declaring the 13 colonies to be independent forever of the England of George III. In his Farewell Address, Washington defined independence in a single sentence: “It is our true policy to steer clear of any permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.” Jefferson echoed the father of his country, declaring America’s policy to be one of “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.”

“America as the last man standing,” speech by Geert Wilders

Talking about “America as the last man standing,” speech by Geert Wilders America as the Last Man Standing Speech by Geert Wilders, chairman of the Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, 25 September 2008, Hudson Institute Dear friends, Thank you very much for inviting me.

When we have three sunny days in a row, the government declares a national emergency. So Four Seasons, that’s new to me. Continue reading

NEWS::Talking about UK University to probe integrity of climate data

Talking about UK University to probe integrity of climate data LONDON (AP) – A British university said Thursday it would investigate whether scientists at its prestigious Climatic Research Unit fudged data on global warming.

It is amazing to me how much this story has been ignored in the mainstream media, yet in the background, the powers that be are scrambling to push through thier plans in quiet desparation!  Even without the MSM coverage, this story is spreading like wildfire.  The climageddon comunity knows thier time is up.  They are in trouble and need to act fast.
