"When more of the people's sustenance is exacted through the form of taxation
than is necessary to meet the just obligations of government, such exaction
becomes ruthless extortion and a violation of the fundamental principles of a
free government."

-- Grover Cleveland



In the new documentary Shadows of Liberty, filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay takes a journey through the darker corridors of the US media. Global conglomerates have called the shots for decades, and their overwhelming influence has distorted news journalism and compromised its values. In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists, and academics give insider accounts of a broken media system. Controversial news reports are suppressed, people are censored for speaking out, and lives are shattered as the arena for public expression is turned into a private profit zone. Tracing the story of media manipulation through the years, Shadows of Liberty poses a crucial question: why have we let a handful of powerful corporations write the news?

Tactical Firearms Training Secrets
Between the cost of ammo, range time, (sometimes) fuel to get there and back, and the time that it takes to get stuff ready before hand and get stuff cleaned and lubed when you get done, it's hard for shooters to get as much trigger time as they know they need.


How Stores Spy on You

You are being watched when you shop, and that information can be matched with other data to help build a profile of you. ShopSmart looks at the various ways we are all being tracked by stores, banks, and others. And now some stores even have a "booty cam" in dressing rooms!

Video cameras record your every move. Your face and car’s license plate are captured and filed in searchable databases. Hidden cameras classify you by age, sex, and ethnicity, and even detect your body language and mood. Even your bank account records are being pried into. The main goal of these surveillance methods, of course, is to get you to shop more and spend more…


When you're looking inexpensive tactical firearms training,
one of your best options is to pick up an airsoft gun.

DHS budget…Why America is broke
Proposed budget shows DHS will have to do with less

The administration’s proposed 2013 budget shows that DHS will have to do with less: the department $39 billion is $625 million less than the department’s2012 budget, and, in addition, the department has committed to save an additional $1.3 billion by reducing administrative costs. Among the big-ticket items in the new budget: $714 million for a state-of-the-art animal disease lab; $494 million to fund research and development in cybersecurity, explosives detection, and chemical/biological response systems; and $221 million for 1,600 additional Border Patrol agents.

At last month’s Border Security Expo in Phoenix, both start-ups and established companies showed off their inventions in an effort to pitch projects to federal agencies. Two themes emerged in the show: the expo demonstrated that many of the systems and weapons systems that were used in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are now becoming available to local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies – and companies expressed concern about the impact the federal budget cuts will have on their pockets.



The Parting Thought- We are trapped

" In America, collectivism is what the government does to people to make them deaf, dumb, and blind, so the corporations can steal everything from them."


From the University of New Mexico Bureau of Business and Economic Research...

Even if ALL U.S. citizens were taxed 100% of their income for an entire year... that's every penny, earned by every citizen in the entire country... it would still not be enough to pay off our debts. Not even close. We'd still be trillions of dollars short.


We began the year 2013 with a net public debt that has more than doubled since the year BEFORE Barack Obama took office. These overwhelming public financial obligations are completely unprecedented in the history of our country, outside of the two major global wars we fought in the 20th century.

Various other government agencies and private companies taken over by the government also have obligations of nearly another $5 trillion. We've already booked complete losses on $140 billion worth of these obligations. Yet they remain completely off the federal balance sheet.

When you add these other, genuine, federal obligations that exist right now, today, you come up with a total debt figure that's much more than $20 trillion. Far more than half of these debts were assumed under President Obama.

We are trapped. There is no way out.

And nobody in Washington – not Republicans, not Democrats, and not even Tea Partiers – want you to realize how precarious our government's finances really are. They can't afford for you to understand this dilemma... or what it means.

As things stand now, the U.S. government can't go broke in any ordinary sense of the word because it can simply print dollars to pay for its bad debts. (It's been doing so since March of 2009.)

Even as late as the 1970s, America was the world's largest creditor. But by the mid-1980s we'd become a debtor to the world. And since the late 1990s we've been the world's LARGEST debtor.

Today, our government owes more money to more people than anyone else in the world

 I believe our creditors (which include foreign countries and other investors here and abroad) will either completely stop accepting dollars in repayment... or greatly discount the value of these new dollars. I'm sure you think that sounds crazy, but as I'll show you, it is already happening.

In fact, Zha Xiaogang, a researcher at the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, recently said:

The shortcomings of the current international monetary system pose a big threat to China's economy."
