  • Deez Nuts is polling quite well against other presidential candidates.
  • And if this poll means anything, there’s more sanity in the country and more hope for harmony between the races than sometimes seems.
  • I forgot until Jim Bovard reminded me: Yesterday was the 23rd anniversary of the feds beginning their killings at Ruby Ridge. Yesterday, Sammy. Today Vicki. There’s no statute of limitations on murder …
  • For those who catch killer cops on camera: the personal aftermath.
  • The Dow (and darned near everything else) goes dowwwwwwwwwwwwn in a way last seen in infamous 2008. And this time, what tricks do global governments have left to pull out of their hats?
  • Starting one year as a nomad. While this is hardly the spontaneous adventure it seems (how many other nomads have multiple sponsors?), it’s still interesting. (Brought to you by BioLite, the folks who make the ingenious camp stoves and related off-grid goodies.)
  • What we do for love. And desperation. Your awwwww story for the day — if awwwww can include alligators.
  • OTOH, maybe you prefer your awwww with bears. (Here’s the video.)

    Re: catching killer cops on camera, I’d say those who chose to record such events take the same approach as lawful concealed carry practitioners…do it stealthily and obtain counsel if you go public with the footage.

    “Killer cops” are only the tip of the iceberg, of course, and not all that common. There are literally thousands, maybe millions of criminal actions by government employees at every level. Those activities are no less destructive to individual liberty than the worst of the cops. The “killer cops” wouldn’t exist without the support of the rest of the system, all supported by the taxpayer and those who still think government can/will protect them – and has the authority to do so.

    I’d think it would be important to do ANY recording of police or other government officials VERY carefully, and without calling attention to oneself. Also have a good idea what you will do with such recordings, and how to post them anonymously. The whole activity requires serious thought and planning. Breaking the myth of government authority is the most important result of such recording, far as I can see.

    IANAL, but as I remember video and photo evidence can’t be introduced in court without being introduced.

    A corporate,nomad. How nice. They young lady should try living out of the back of a Nissan pick up truck and follow the harvests from coast to coast. For fun she could add a couple of kids. I have several friends that are nomads, one with kids. No sponsors, just a lot of hard work. They aren’t metal smiths with space for creative expression though. Two are blacksmiths that make knives for a meager living. They can do artistic but it doesn’t buy much food. The other is a farrier and works farm to far, ranch to ranch.
