"An anarchist is anyone who doesn't need a cop to tell him what to do."
Ammon Hennacy: The One Man Revolution
"Oh, judge, your damn laws: the good people don't need them and the bad people don't follow them so what good are they?" -- Ammon Hennacy
Hennacy passed away the year I became politically aware. I had just enlisted into the Navy as my lottery number was 50 and I hadn’t enrolled into any college. In school most of my friends were anti-war and anti-big government (whatever happened to that generation?)
After getting out of the service my awareness about government hijinks increased as did my disdain for the corporate culture which is why I primarily engaged in self employment strategies over the years, starting my own successful publishing company and other businesses.
Nowadays, even more folks have awakened to the follies and destructive nature of the Washington-Wall Street Cartel and I thought it pertinent to share a bit Hennacy’s story.
(1893-1970) Catholic anarchist, pacifist, vegetarian, draft refuser in two world wars, tax resister - a "One-person revolution in America."
Whenever Ammon was arrested for any number of reasons, mostly for "illegal" picketing, instead of pleading guilty or innocent he would plead 'anarchy'. This was his reply to the judge's statement 'But Ammon you broke the law.'
How many of you would risk arrest to protest against government tyranny today? All it takes to reclaim our country is for you to take a stand. The Poor Man has shared strategies such as Jury Nullfication, shunning, and other activism methods you can use and teach others to stop the nonsense destroying our nation. Have you shared or used any of these strategies?

The COIN card: Merge all your credit & debit cards into a single card
From their website: “Coin is a connected device that can hold and behave like the cards you already carry. Coin works with your debit cards, credit cards, gift cards, loyalty cards and membership cards. Instead of carrying several cards you carry one Coin. Multiple accounts and information all in one place.”
Pet Healthcare for Less Wouldn't it be great if we could somehow lower our pets' medical costs? As much as we love them, it's sometimes quite a stretch to have to pay a large bill that comes as a complete surprise.
The Un-Patriot Act has become a traitorous proposition used to deceive citizens…
The 21st Century looks a lot like 1984.
The government – our government – is using surveillance programs to track us. These secret programs have code names like: Boundless Informant, Carnivore, MUSCULAR, PRISM, Hemisphere, NUCLEON, MAINWAY, XKeyscore, and too many more to list.
Earlier this year, in June, the British daily newspaper, The Guardian, published the first in a long (and still not yet fully realized) line of leaked classified NSA documents, provided by former government contractor turned whistleblower Edward Snowden. These leaked files document government-led surveillance of telephone records, e-mail messages, Skype conversations, and through a top-secret program called XKeyscore, "nearly everything a user does on the internet."
To date, the federal government has not provided any legitimate warrant requests for this information, instead relying on Section 215 of the Patriot Act as the justification for this widespread, improper collection of private data.
Yes, that's the same Patriot Act that was enacted to fight terrorism. Now, Mr. Obama and his nosy government agents are using it to justify sifting through your private records, including the ones from your bank, your phone company, and your credit card companies, to name just a few. They can even force your financial advisor and accountant to turn over your files!
So much for our Fourth Amendment rights to be secure "in our persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures." Rampant federal disregard for the Bill of Rights isn't a conspiracy theorist's punch line anymore, this is reality. Much of this effort is led by special interest groups who have politicians in their pocket…knowing the wars in the Middle East are winding down, high tech spy companies now focus on scamming Uncle Scam and the public, fleecing are already bankrupt nation…
Think You Don't Have Anything to Hide?
Already, the government has identified pro-lifers, conservatives, libertarians, gun owners, and survivalists, even those who own precious metals or firearms as "potential terrorists." Learning about edible plants, basic first aid, and paying with cash when you shop could also lead to your increased surveillance by local and federal law enforcement that see you as a threat.
The argument that the only people who need to worry is those who have something to hide is quickly becoming irrelevant as the federal government slowly, but significantly, expands their definition of "potential terrorists." There are few left in the U.S. who fit within the government's definition of those who have "nothing to hide."
Most of the “problems” we have in our country are self-inflicted by our political elite and their handlers. Most often they offer fairy tale solutions which almost always require more fixing and more money – just look at the disaster known as Obamacare!
IT jobs can’t replace manufacturing jobs in the US but…like Germany and Switzerland, we could and need to rebuild our manufacturing base again. America needs to build things!
