    Breakdown of Law and Order: “We Can’t Depend On the Police Department”

    Budget cuts across the country have stripped local police departments of personnel at an alarming rate. So much so that Americans from coast-to-coast are now being forced to fend for themselves.

    Our latest example comes from East Oakland’s Arcadia Park, where law and order have broken down to such an extent that residents have been been left with no other choice but to band together to police their own streets.

    According to one member of this neighborhood watch on steroids, it’s turning into the Wild West.

    With criminals running rampant, when seconds count, police are often minutes away:

    KPIX 5 cameras caught up with a half dozen neighbors in East Oakland’s Arcadia Park neighborhood Monday as they walked the streets on the lookout for crime. The vigilance has never seemed more necessary than now; 25 homes in the neighborhood have been burglarized over the last two months alone.

    In a neighborhood that has started to feel like the wild west, people have even started posting “wanted” signs.

    You have to walk around in your house with a gun to feel safe here,” said Alaska Tarvins of the Arcadia Park Board of Directors.

    The people who live in the area are nothing if not gutsy, but they need help. A plan to gate their community has been stalled. With the police force stretched painfully thin, they may be forced to follow other Oakland neighborhoods and hire private guards.

    We don’t have a choice. Either die or we hire some security ourselves, because we can’t depend on the police department,” said Tarvins.

    Source: KCBS San Francisco

    But Oakland is not alone.

    With cities, towns and their respective state governments having overspent billions of dollars over the last decade, many are so broke they have no choice but to lay off emergency services employees that include cops and medical first responders.

    It’s gotten so bad in some parts of the country, that there are areas of major cities where police refuse to go.

    The city of Chicago, in an effort to save money and deploy officers to more critical areas, has literally stopped taking 9-1-1 calls for crime reports such as armed robberies, car thefts, and burglaries.

    With anti-gun politicians at all levels of government now attempting to disarm Americans and restrict their access to personal defense weapons, and police departments running so thin that they can no longer respond in any reasonable amount of time, criminals will only be more empowered to target law abiding Americans who are left with no means to defend themselves.

    The economic malaise that includes millions of unemployed will only further add to the problem, as those with nothing left to lose will do whatever it takes to put food on the table.

    We are witnessing the slow but steady degradation of law and order in this country, and it’ll soon be coming to a neighborhood near you.

    The end result will be a citizenry so terrified that they will call for military intervention to help police our streets. In fact, in Illinois state representatives have already called on the governor to deploy the National Guard and residents in Detroit have followed suit.

    We have yet to experience a full scale fiscal crisis on the state and local level, but it’s coming. When it does, you can fully expect nationwide crime waves to spread like wildfire.

        • VRF,

          You got that right. Last time I called to report some men breaking into a home PD treated me like a crimmal. Second time I caught so kids breaking into a shed behind my house I put the laser on the back of one of their heads.. Guess what haven’t seen anybody breaking in 6 months… So if you catch somebody in the act, I say light them up like a christmas tree.. Red or Green both have the same affect.

          • In my experience, absolutely nothing good has ever come from calling the cops. They always treat you like a criminal, even if you are the one who was the victim of a crime. They quite literally scan your home, just looking for a reason to harrass you.

              I was really surprised when my house got broken into 3 years ago, the detective was pretty cool, not condescending or demeaning at all. They actually caught the punks and even got all our stuff back including my wife’s 9mm. I’m in a small town of about 3000 though…

                • don't tread says:

                  I have to agree, Shootit. small town. Our county has about 70,000 population and the current Sheriff grew up in a country farm household with good parents(met his dad several times). Although i never talked with his son, about my age, he knew of me thru the previous Sheriff. Nothing bad on my part.

                  Last year I was offered a piece of land,(about 40 acres) near my home to oversee and hunt on. Two guys that have separate interest for access and nearby hunting were furious and turned from friendly casual acquaintances, to enraged lunatics. Coming to the edge of the property where I was working and cussing me with everything they had. They said were coming back the upcoming Sat morn with our AR-15s and “fix your ass; and any gates you put up we will pull them down”.

                  The old me would have waited to catch them One-on-one and tear into them. The old worn out and slower,wiser,christian me just kept saying; “yea though i walk thru the valley of the shadow of death….”

                  A few days after thinking about the situation, I decided to tell the land owner so there would be no surprises if it came down to bloodshed. These guys,15 years younger, one is a lineman (union worker making about $35.00 per hour riding round in a co.truck, and the other an EMT making about the same,are basically Assholes that think because of their jobs, they are untouchable. They use Gods name in vain like a baby saying mama or daadaa. Because of their $$ they act like they are better than others and will climb a tree backwards to tell a lie.

                  After telling the landowner, a retired criminal lawyer of 43 years, about the incident, he asked me to phone or go see the Sheriff(not a deputy) and tell him so as to cover my ass. The sheriff tried to get me to take out papers on them, but I declined because of their craziness I would always have to look over my back.
                  He was very nice and knows the EMT guy personally. He said if you have any more problems, let me know and we will put an end to their “bullying” tactics one way or another.

                  That kind of support and taking the time to get all the details was a very important part of my having a positive attitude towards this one LE guy doing the right thing. It is a shame all LE aren’t that way.

                  The attorney/landowner still wanted me to file papers but I said let’s just give it some time and see if they are going to do anything stupid. He said, “well, at least now if you have to shoot one of the bastards, I’ll represent you in court.”

                  One of them came down the road a while back by himself, while I was at the property. He sat on the state maintained road staring at me working. I casually walked to my pick-up and pulled out a baseball bat in one hand and my 45 auto in the other and started towards the road. i hate a fucking bully about as bad as i hate a thief and liar. BTW he just took off as soon as he saw me coming.
                  What these pieces of shit bullies don’t know is I’m ready to die;so if go out while taking one of these bastards out by defending myself, so be it.

                  Around 1900, in El Paso, Texas, there was a German band that liked to practice their music in the city square in the gazebo. One evening after work they were practicing when they were interrupted. A cowboy (vaquero) had been thrown out of one of the bars surrounding the city square and he decided to take out his anger by shooting up the town. He pulled out his pistol, and as he emptied it, some of the rounds seemed to come dangerously close to the band. Shots rang out, and they realized the cowboy was dead. Luckily, the Coroner was a member of the band and he immediately convened a Coroner’s Inquest into the death. The verdict: Death was at the hands of persons unknown – because he had 43 bullets in him and the Coroner couldn’t tell which one killed him.

                Key words, “small town.” Everyone is nicer when chances are good they’ll run into you in everyday life – the grocery store, church, Little League – where their position doesn’t matter. Lots of big city police live out in the ‘burbs.

                Police operate from the premise, where there is a crime, there are criminals. And in certain neighborhoods that’s true. They show up at a shooting, chances are good one or more bystanders has an outstanding warrant. The problem arises when they apply the law of averages to Joe Sixpack who is victim of a burglary. The dumb ones think, “Hey, we found a couple outstanding warrants when we showed up at that shooting between the gangbangers, I’ll bet this s**thead has an outstanding warrant too. Police Departments don’t always recruit from the top of the class.

              I am sorry you have had that experience. I have to say that the times I have called them or any of my family has called them the police here have been courteous, respectful, and helpful. I guess it depends where you live and the type of folks that are recruited from your community into the police. We have good people here.

            • This is true. I called the police about a year ago to report someone shining a flashlight in our window, and he wanted my driver’s license. I thought – wait a minute, I’m not driving, I’m not under suspicion of a crime, what’s the deal here? I asked him what he needs to see the driver’s license for, and he said “to put a name with a face.”

              That didn’t make any sense, because he SEES my face and I TOLD him my name, and why in the world wouldn’t he believe me? Why would anyone call the police and lie? I was very uncomfortable with the whole thing but I didn’t say anything else. If it IS such a police state, then arguing with him would cause nothing but trouble.

                “””I called the police about a year ago to report someone shining a flashlight in our window, and he wanted my driver’s license.”””

                That’s because he had to establish corp jurisdiction over you. He had to see proof that you are a slave that requires a license to exist, and that the property he is protecting is the corps. He doesn’t protect your property. He is an executive agent of the government protecting ITs property from you.

                A FREE Man needs no license for ANYTHING. If you want to be free, never show an officer of the corp any corp documents.

                Instead, ask them if they are challenging you and / or what you say. That will always put them on the defensive and make them back down.

                I am the only Man in my city who can enter my kids school without showing a corporate ID. They hate that, but never challenge me anymore. They quit asking me.

                It’s all about putting you on the defensive. It’s far better to keep them on the defensive by knowing your rights and responsibilities and making them challenge YOU if they dare.

                • I have a unique (real) name and it is confusing to spell it as someone is writing. When I have called the police to make a report (I own a small business), they always ask my name and I give to to them for obvious reasons. I then spell it really fast and ask if they want ID. The officers laugh and agree the license may help. Guess I could write it down for them but why take the time. Not all officers have the skills or talent needed. However, it has been my experience almost all do. I don’t personally know them but they seem as though they would stand up for the right thing. Perhaps it’s best to not judge them on actions of a few. May be that this is not the case in other areas of the country but my interactions have been positive.

                  Gods Creation: You talk tough but all it will get you, or anyone, is locked up. If you’re driving you’re required to show your license when pulled over-period. Refuse and you’ll go to jail, you’ll be charged with as many infractions as possible, our car will be impounded ($$), you may have to post bail-depending if you continue to spout off stupidities in court($), and you’ll need to get an attorney to deal with all of those charges ($$$). But that’s only the beginning: if the arresting cop thinks you’re one of theose sovereign citizen types, your name is going into evey major LEO database from the FBI, DHS, and ATF, to name a few. Cops are now actively being trained by the FEDS and the SPLC on “Sovereign Citizens” and the danger they pose to LEOs. They’ll be looking at all of you credit card purchases-hope you paid cash for your guns. You may end up on a no-fly list and the locals will have you marked as a person of interest. They’ll look for reasons to pull you over because you couldn’t keep your big mouth shut the first time. Time is short, and the last place anyone needs to be WTSHTF is in jail or on the cops radar. Don’t believe me, look at SPLC’s taining site concerning sovereign citizens. Hell, it’s even on Youtube now.

                I’ve been in dispatch for a number of years and the reason the LEO wanted you DL is because he is lazy. Instead of requesting your info he’ll run your DL and have everything he needs for the report. And on the off chance there’s a warrant he’ll know just as quick and he’ll be obligated to pick you up. I had a young lady come into the station to file a domestic abuse report and unfortunately she was wanted for something (bad checks I think) and because the officer ran her and the hit came back she was taken off to the county jail. Watch yourselves and never trust em.

              • I don’t know all the particulars of your situation but I will say that on a prowler/ burglary call asking for your ID is common practice for two reasons:

                1) to establish that you are in fact the homeowner and not the bad guy who is just claiming to be the homeowner.

                2) so the officer can complete an incident report. When an officer responds a police report must be filed which includes the complainants name, address and phone number. The tertiary reason for asking for an ID is that some names are just easier to copy down than have someone spell out. If an officer responds for such a call, then the homeowner is a victim and all crimes must be logged in a uniform crime report.

              • A drivers license or ID verifies the correct spelling of your name and date of birth. Typically speaking with todays computer systems its easier to verify people’s information with dispatch center than write it down in a notepad then add it to a call later. Its force of habbit.

                Once LE is done with a call they add narrative and have to clear the call. Probably why he was in your driveway. Not sure why that is disturbing.

              I have never had a bad experience with a policeman, quite the contrary. A few years ago, my Mother called the police to report her mail box being run over, a police man came to her house and took a report, while he was there, he shoveled her front steps on his way out.

              • There may be some decent, helpful cops but the chances of you getting one on your call are astronomical. You are more likely to wind up dead that have your report taken.

                No, we don’t need cops. We need to start taking care of ourselves and protecting ourselves. The Supreme Court has stated the cops are NOT responsible for our personal protection. Ergo, we are not obliged to call them to protect us when they are too cowardly to act without the backup of a SWAT team.

You know they don’t have an easy job, not exactly hard either. But like any of us they can have an attitude on any given day.

              Have to agree with you, you just have to know your rights. NEVER let them in the front door. If they get to pushy remind them that they are on private property. Like I told the last one that came here, I invited you to my property to report a crime. Now I am telling you to leave my property. Yeah they get pissy but oh well its my right.

            First, because they are the most likely to resist enforcing Unlawful federal codes.

            Second, to make the local governments beg for federal help, which will come with many strings.

            On a happy note, you don’t need the corporate report generators anyway and there will be fewer to harass people traveling the roadways. We will be far better without the local police being so bloated.

            On a sad note, I would bet that for every local law enforcement officer lost, two are added to fed enforcement to carry out the crimes that local enforcement now stops by it’s very presence.

            Nothing happens by accident in government. It happens because a few are greedy and the rest are stupid.

                  When my kids were young they all started out working the drive-thru windows at fast food joints. The stories and dialogue we’d hear was hysterical!

            Same here. I called to report a car accident and injuries but the dispatcher was more involved in knowing who I was, my name, address, and a telephone number than gathering info about the scene.

            I was literally arguing with the person about why I’m such a point of concern for them and guess how the call finally ended??

            I was told they already had received calls about the accident and were well informed and had people on the way!!!

            Bottom line is they’re standard operating procedure is to question and database everything they possibly can.

            Just like how the gov used to give tax breaks and subsidize companies who updated surveillance cameras. The gov was using the cameras to scan facial recognition on everybody who walked by them and database it.

            It’s pretty scary stuff and it’s been kept relatively quiet for the past 10 or so years they’ve been implementing it.

        Sigh, this is the state of our Union. I had one guy that worked for me refuse to go in a hot zone. He is now up for termination for unrelated charges. But needless to say, I have seen guys make a career out of writing soccer moms tickets. But in a civil society, and we are still a civil society, the people must take part in the public safety. Have you ever gone to or seen a dictatorship or socialist/communist regime? There are cops everywhere, and that is to crush the people, not crime prevention. I think I would rather make sure my family is safe personally, than let some kid with a few hours at a police academy training make us safe.

        Here is something that should send everyone through the roof. The average police academy is 6 months, at 40 hours a week, that is roughly 840 hours of training, then we strap a gun on them and have them protect and serve. Now, they are supposed to be some of the best, and usually for a year or so they train with a veteran. In California it takes 1600 hours to get your cosmetology license….. 840 to get qualified for a gun and 1600 to cut hair. Look it up.

Around here, a lose dog is a lost dog and finding its owner is the right thing to do. Another thing, they don’t kill animals in the shelter here.

        matt,
        I believe in what you’re saying about not paying taxes, but the problem is in the areas of these cities that are getting burglarized, most of the people don’t pay taxes anyway. It was on the news the other day that in one block of Detroit, of 40 homes, only 1 person was paying property taxes. How can a civil society pay for anything, including services, when the cities are occupied by porch-monkeys. I get very upset driving home every evening and see the porches full of young “adults?” just hanging out with about 15 kids who look like they haven’t had their diapers changed in 2 weeks. Free health care, free food, free cell phones, EBT cards to use at the local strip joint, and people wonder why we don’t have money for services. Go Figure!!!

              I’d like to say – No Way In Hell, but the indoctrination has been very successful. I had a hard time erasing each day’s un-education for DS. It was tough work since I had to work and couldn’t home-school or afford private education. 1 out of 1200 isn’t much odds. DS know the founders, federalist papers, CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. He knows the blood shed and why. He didn’t get along with his teachers very well. They didn’t like being educated. The sad part of this story is he rants and raves at his peers and they say ‘Dude, it will be okay’!
              I wonder often if I’ve given him a life of miserable ~ knowing how different it could have been. For what end will it matter. Sorry, I’m having a private pity party that you wouldn’t want to attend.

        It is very amazing how Constitutionally minded, all these Politicians are when it comes to States passing Pro Gun Rights bills. They all say how these bills won’t stand up to the Constitution, and most of them are Dems. but it was Republicans that gutted our bill in Wyoming. Leland.Christensen@wyoleg.com–John.Shiffer@wyoleg.com– Bruce.Burns@wyoleg.gov– Strange that the Constitution is so important to the Politicans, when WE try to get laws to protect us from them, but the Constitution don’t mean squat, when every they’re walking all over our rights.The States just need the guts to go ahead and pass these laws, and make the Supreme Court rule on them. It may only take them 40 years to get to it. Trekker Out. Ready And Waiting!

      In the interest of maintaining law & order in the community, Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts have pledged to franchise a new unit in each and every neighborhood. Be more cops there than you can shake a stick at.

      My apologies to the LEO who aren’t full time sheep, but please understand: The organization you work for is corrupt. Ever written a ticket to somebody for no auto liability insurance? No seat belt? Then how long til you cite (or arrest) citizens for no health insurance? For speaking or writing something that is ‘against the law’? Will you help load them onto the trains to Camp Fema?
      The question to ask yourself is ‘Do I believe in the rightness and constitutionality of the laws I enforce?’ If so, then we already know where you stand. You’re a sheep. A propaganda believing troll. A jack-booted thug, nothing more. You are the enemy, now and after the commencement.
      If not, then why are you still working there?
      answer- I have to make a living
      Bzzz- wrong answer. you can make a living selling crack to teenagers, that doen’t make it right
      Try again.
      answer- We have to have some of our guys, some good people, on the inside, in the force. otherwise we turn full control over to the crooks
      Bzzz- wrong again. The mafia is the mafia. Getting a few ‘good guys’ from our side in there won’t change the criminal character of the organization.

      Do you see the point? The whole organization is CORRUPT. It’s rotten to the very core and needs to be discarded. Why hang around and soil your own integrity in that mess?
      Best to take full stock of what you believe in now, before hostilities commence. Plus, we need you on our side.

      *just for the record- I’m a firm believer in seat belts and car insurance. I use them all the time. What I despise, and what I was addressing, is the LAWS that force us into such use.
      ** I fully recognize my own complicity in co-operating with the government corporation in my day to day life. Believe me, I’m not doing nothing in my attempts to extricate myself therefrom…

      ***plus, I always wanted to use the word ‘therefrom.’ Is this ok eisen?

      I shall now return to the Burrito channel. There’s been way too much seriousness for today, a day in which I endeavor to re-stabilize my karma following yesterday’s rants. To return to the comfy confines of my own little world. It’s 200 miles yet to Oz…but,

      • Okie:

        Let me preface this question with the comment, “Amen.” I totally agree with the basic principle of what you said.

        However, recommending people quit their jobs in this economy is all but suicidal. There ARE no jobs to replace the jobs that people give up. And what about those who would take their places? What if they’re WORSE and they bring a whole new level of enthusiasm to enforcing stupid laws and increasing municipal income?

        I’m not sure what the answer is to this dilemma, and I am no fan of law enforcement, but I don’t know if recommending they all quit is correct either.

          ‘Day Daisy,

          “I’m not sure what the answer is to this dilemma…”

          Yes, you do Daisy…amd Okie too, and EVERYONE else here as well.

          “Unalienable Rights” are those which CANNOT be delegated away – thay are as much a part of us as is our hand or our leg – and thus your self-defense resides, and ABIDES first and foremost with YOU, always. Furthermore, it is always the case that any “Right” has an inseperable second component from which it cannot be divorced, a “Responsibilty”. That this is so is easily seen; Those who have Rights but no concommitant resposiblities are the very Tyranical fools we see about us today, whilst any who have responsibilties yet no personal authority over themselves are seen to be only slaves to someone else who does possess that authority.

          The grand experiment which is the last several decades of the American experiance is seen to be an abject failure; How so? Along the way WE began to beleive that this PLACE and the PEOPLE in it were truly, utterly different than anywhere else on Earth. Not so. People are the same wherever you go, down deep where it counts, and while we pursued high ideals and beliefs we lost sight of the Truth. I’ve always heard it said that you can lie to everyone all the time and get away with it – maybe – but when you begin LYING to yourself you
          are, or soon will be, LOST. Such as that is what happened with us as well, here, in America. It does not hurt to have high ideals, to be sure, but it is always the case that ideals must be tempered by TRUTH, lest we do again as we have already done.

          The answer I am refering to is, of course, the same one that existed in the Old West….that every adult being RESPONSIBLE for themselves IMPLIES that everyone is ARMED and COMPETENT in the use thereof. Any thing else is simply seen to be another form of lying to
          ourselves; denying Human nature at it’s root. 20 small children and six adults would be ALIVE this very moment had not the ‘enlightened’ citizens of Conneticut chosen to foolishly attempt to delegate thier ADULT responsibilites, thier UNALIENABLE RIGHTS to others. Make no mistake ever, any legislature does ONLY what it’s citizen’s tacitly permit it to do, Is this not so?

          “Every time we deviate from TRUTH someone, somehwere dies because of that denial”, we can no longer afford such denials…can we?

      Sigh, this is the state of our Union. I had one guy that worked for me refuse to go in a hot zone. He is now up for termination for unrelated charges. But needless to say, I have seen guys make a career out of writing soccer moms tickets. But in a civil society, and we are still a civil society, the people must take part in the public safety. Have you ever gone to or seen a dictatorship or socialist/communist regime? There are cops everywhere, and that is to crush the people, not crime prevention. I think I would rather make sure my family is safe personally, than let some kid with a few hours at a police academy training make us safe.

      Here is something that should send everyone through the roof. The average police academy is 6 months, at 40 hours a week, that is roughly 840 hours of training, then we strap a gun on them and have them protect and serve. Now, they are supposed to be some of the best, and usually for a year or so they train with a veteran. In California it takes 1600 hours to get your cosmetology license….. 840 to get qualified for a gun and 1600 to cut hair. Look it up.

        I think you’re right EA. Not all the cops I’ve met are bad, but there seems to be fewer good guys among them today. And the very organization that employs them is getting more corrupted each day. Federal subsidies to local law enforcement agencies come with plenty of strings attached.
        The criminals in DC would like nothing more than to get every single cop shop in America beholden to them, and enforcing their unconstitutional laws. That’s why the good guys that are still there must seriously question whether it’s worth staying in. And, we do need those folks on our side.

          Anyone who sells themselves to the military is incapable of comprehending what freedom is, otherwise they would not so willingly give it up for the almighty dollar earned in service to the worst humanity has to offer.

        @ Last American –

        I like your satire, but it’s all too close to the truth.

        The Amerika with a warship named after Malcolm X would HAVE long since changed its national anthem to “We Shall Overcome,” played on a KAZOO.

        Its national heraldic emblem would not be an eagle, but a chihuahua/St. Bernard mongrel with canine spina bifida and hermaphroditism.

        Its “constitution” would have an amendment upholding the right to the unfettered exercise of one’s “sexual orientation” and the right to intimate relations with home appliances, but ONLY if they are hooked up to smart meters.

        All kidding aside, unless this disgusting beast is brought down by God, it is very possible that the NWO US Navy will launch at some time in the future “green” warships with names like Rosa Parks, Caesar Chavez. Trayvon Martin and Martin Lucifer King.

        I for one would NEVER regret seeing a garbage scow called the “Harvey Milk,” filled with room-temperature IQ affirmative-action troglodytes, fluoride-stunted morons and degraded sexual perverts, get sent to the bottom by one of Russia’s new subs, preferably one named after a saint of the Orthodox church.

    30. I say more firearms in private hands, solid Castle Doctrine, and a local sheriff (to handle those who were routed or wounded rather than killed during the commission of their crimes) will do more to advance public safety than a well-funded police department full of donut-gobbling suburban cops on a power trip.

      I read many comments on these sites attacking law enforcement, and there may/will come a day when we have to resist them to the death. But until that day, lets not attack them verbally on a continous basis. There are many very good law officers in all branches, whether it be city cops or highway patrol or sheriff’s dept. I have been stopped by LEO on many occasions, usually pertaining to speeding. And have always been treated with respect, it seems they usually respond to you, as you respond to them. Just remember they are human, with human responses. I would sure hate to live in a country with out their protection. And as for all you badasses, I’m as tough as any. No Brag Just Fact!

        I’ve had pretty good experiences with the local police. I got stopped for running a red light because I was paying too much attention to our new baby in the back seat and was let go with a warning. When I called to report my motorcycle had been stolen from my front porch they were here within minutes.

        The state police on the other hand are total jerks. I was open carrying in my car (legal here) on the way back from the cabin and got caught in a speed trap. Next thing I knew I was face down in the gravel being handcuffed. He desperately searched my car for drugs, but found nothing. He was apologetic and reduced my speed so I wouldn’t get points on my license, but he is still a jerk.

          You should have arrested him for assault and battery. It is unlawful to place handcuffs on someone who has not tried to leave and has not posed a direct threat of imminent personal danger to the officer.

          State police are the biggest jerks because they were the biggest jerks to local police had to offer up. Only the biggest jerks can pass the psychological test they give.

          Why do you think they use it? To find people who want to serve you? Nope, they want useful idiots who are prone to abuse their presumed “power” over you.

        Treck The Cops know; the good ones are worse about what’s going on than we are. Had a chat with Chief of Police from my home town in Ohio. As he put it: 1/3 of my guys are super people who have always wanted to serve the public, 1/3 are just your normal guy trying to do a good job, and 1/3 are people who want to wear a gun and push people around. My job is to fire that last third. Then they go get a job working in a big city.
        Was a large estate auction. guy had more stuff than have ever seen for one guy. Had a building large as my house just for his stuffed animals. Must have been 200 people there, buying everything. I said to the Sheriff standing there: You know what these people are really doing? He said yup, getting ready for a war. I asked : Have you decided what side you are going to be on. He said everyone in the department thought about that every time they went to work. He didn’t answer the question, but he knew.

            I feel the same way MtnTrekker. That has been my philosophy concerning the roaming dogs of distant neighbors who refuse to keep them “contained” away from my “neck of the woods”.

            Shoot,Shovel, and Shut TF Up!

            I’ve tried to handle the situations everyway possible since the 1980s. I’ve determined who owned the dogs and went to them directly; with the same response: my dog wouldn’t bother anyone or anything. He plays with the kids. yea right? While the kids are at school and the owners at work, the dogs roam the woods near my home killing chickens, and running down newborn fawns killing them just to taste their blood. I know for a fact.

            I’ve tried educating the community by writing editorials about the problems of “free-roaming” pets. Same response: “Not my pets, that’s why i moved to the mountains, so my pets can run free.

            Brought up the problem at the Community Ruritan Meetings and Local VFD. Same ole response, and way of thinking.

            Some of my friends and I started using the S.S.S. solution. have been for over 30 years and ain’t gonna stop now. If floating thiefs and lowlifes start activity near our “private properties”; they’ll get the same reaction.

    41. We have something here called the RIDE program. It is supposed to be designed to catch drunk drivers through random checkpoints.

      The cops stand there in the middle of the road and everyone has to stop and answer their nosy questions. My daughter always cringes and says, “Mom, PLEASE BE NICE THIS TIME.”

      Yeah, right.

      For some odd reason, they often have these checkpoints at the beginning of the dead end road that leads to the school, and really, I cannot imagine that very many people tie one on at 8 am and then drive the kiddos to elementary school.

      LEO: Ma’am, have you had anything to drink this morning
      Daisy: Nope, just coffee
      LEO: Where are you going?
      Daisy: (Thinks, DUH, there is a kid in the car and one building on this street, but says) Why do you ask?
      LEO: Just answer the question ma’am.
      Daisy: I forgot the question.
      LEO: (Sighs) Where are you going?
      Daisy: Oh – why do you ask? Do I need an attorney?
      LEO: What?

      2nd LEO joins 1st LEO and recognizes me: Give up, dude,she’s American.

      It’s especially fun five minutes later after you drop off your kid and get to go through their lame checkpoint again – I’ve found they generally just wave me right on through.

    42. As this column is being published, hearings will begin at 10 a.m. Eastern time in the Hart Senate Office Building as Dianne Feinstein presides over testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on her “Assault Weapons Ban of 2013.”

      Among the witnesses scheduled to address the committee will be noted Second Amendment attorney, author and documentary filmmaker David T. Hardy, who also posts at the indispensible Of Arms & the Law blog. He’ll be in the second panel, appearing this afternoon, albeit he has not been allocated enough time to cover everything he is prepared to testify on.

      “With only five minutes to speak, I’ll have to hit only the high points,” Hardy explained in an email announcing his inclusion in the hearing. With his abbreviated testimony, he’ll be providing the committee with a copy of his complete testimony, which he’s posted in his website archives so the public can read it, too.

      Among Hardy’s conclusions:


      To pass constitutional muster under any applicable standard of review, a law must bear a provable, not speculative, relationship to an important social goal, and not unnecessarily impact other exercises of a constitutional right. S. 150 fails under this standard …
      •S. 150 arbitrarily bans guns by name, including firearms that have little in common, some which do not even exist in the U.S.
      •It arbitrarily bans firearms by features, where the features have no relationship to criminal use.
      •It would ban all semiautomatic rifles or shotguns with a “pistol grip” – and virtually all semiautomatic rifles and shotguns have these, so it effectively bans all semiautomatic long guns.
      •It arbitrarily applies restrictions to peaceful private citizens, while exempting LEOs who had to be retired due to mental disorders.

          There are too many inconsistencies, fake pictures, and odd “actors”. Another video that I watched points out that the initial, local media reports, going back to the Oklahoma bombing, are probably truthful (but confusing) and are quickly silenced and replaced by the “spin”. We see this after all the false flag events- Oklahoma, 9-11, Aurora, Sandy Hook. The truth is hidden unless you dig for it.

      One thing important to remember about the police: it is not their job to protect anyone or fight crime. Their job is to build a case against whatever they can find when they dig for something to charge. They have no obligation by law to protect people (with the only exception being if there was a special relationship set up with a particular party). One cannot rely on the police for anything related to crime except the paperwork that comes afterward.

        They don’t need to build a case. That’s the job of the DA’s office. I agree with the rest.

        The new cop just wants a suspect in jail for a crime that has been commited. It don’t matter if there is insufficient evidence, they just want someone with handcuffs on, file the paperwork and go back to jawing with whomever or whatever. It most likely will be a doughnut, or bearclaw.

        The new HPs just want to fill their quota with citations, so he can go back to jawing with a buddy, or a crawler & coffee.

    45. I am charging this countries courts, judges, lawyers and prosecutors for not keeping these dangerous criminals behind bars or executed…

      there should be a country wide law suit levied upon them until they change their catch and release policies.

      I am so sick of them making laws against us law abiding when they do nothing or very little to keep the dangerous criminals from infecting our society and way of life

      Its time as a society to hold those responsible for making this a safer place to live with deriliection of duty, and criminal charges for perpetuating the crime inflicted upon us as a society by thier hands.

      If they can go on a ban guns spree , than we can go on a do your fucking job spree, and direct some of if not most of the blame for the rampant criminal behavior all the way from harlem to the white house..and DC..

      we need a vehicle to be able to levy a suit against this system, because they cannot remain immune to prosecution..the fear of being prosecuted for this may get the job done with some hope for a legal system that has become a criminal justice system..yeah a system to get the criminals off.

      those that are making the decisions that affect us all, need to be held accountable for thier decissions, or there is no incentive to the right thing by the people for the people who pay their dam paychecks and perks

        They must be prosecuted, by Men, under the Constitution, through the local Sheriff.

        Any other action is a corporate action and the corp will protect it’s own.

        ===============

        Article III, Section 3

        Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

        =====================================

        The answer is in the Law called the Constitution.

        All that is needed is three people in ANY county to walk into the Sheriffs office and swear out an Arrest Warrant for Obama for treason.

        If people keep waiting for the corp to enforce the Constitution against it’s officers nothing will ever be done. It’s not the corps job. It’s yours.

            That is why communism rules in this country. All facets of .gov are controlled by commies from the top dog catcher in DC to the pissant towns’ dog catcher. They are not going to change their power position by allowing a vote to derail their communist coup.

        Slingshot, I’m with you, why pity California, it shows you what a True Democracy looks like. The majority of the people in that State continue to vote those same idiots into office, and then cry about how bad it is. And under a Democracy, the Minority have to suffer under the choices of the Majority. But where the problems come in,is that they don’t keep their dumb choices at home. It’s alright as long as they keep their Socialist and Communist at home, in State Government, but then they go and punish us, by send their trash to the U.S. Congress where the rest of the country has to suffer on their account, which affects us. So then instead of pity, we have contempt for California. Trekker Out. Semper Paratus!

          That is the point. We pay for someone elses mistakes and then have to listen to the bullshit. I have a few things going for me at my age when it goes down.
          I have pretty much lived a full life so I don’t think about the future too much as far as being wasted or lost.
          Have the wisdom of the years to ferret out the stupid people I will encounter in the chaos. Have done my preps. Won’t have to listen to the socialist or communist point of veiw for too much longer and that I have a direct capability of silencing their agenda.

      I’m presently staying with my daughter, who lives in a VERY large city- Atlanta, Ga. I need to go back up north soon, to take care of business. Since she refuses to prep, I was thinking of possibly buying some silver coins to leave with her so that if the s hits the fan, she will have a way to pay for gas and travel up north, where family is. Was wondering.. how much silver should I leave with her? Any ideas? Her closest relative (brother)lives around D.C. (She and I both have low income). I live around Baltimore, Md… trying to relocate but not sure where to go! ; (

      • I have avoided answering your question Grasshopper..because I didnt want to come across as too rash..

        But the truth of the matter is, If she isnt prepped, and ready and have her mind right as to how to survive, just giving her the silver or what ever you think will get her to you, it could very well be a death sentance.

        If she is not of the survivalist mind set, and obviously she must not be, or you wouldnt have to prop her up. She wont make it on the road trip AFTER the S hits the F..

        if she intends to stay with you, than she and you might want to think about getting a move on it now. So you two can prepp togeather.

        just throwing someone a few hundered in silver for gas or what ever, will not prepare them for whats coming.

        If she refuses to prep like you said..than nothing you do will change that mind set, it is like a drunk having to go to rehab, if its not their idea chances are it wont work..its the old “you can lead a horse to water” senario

        personally if she doesnt have food and water and some necessities already stored, giving a few silver coins isnt going to make a dam bit of difference and its kinda the horse before the cart..she should have the most important survival needs met first, before the metals

        Just my opinion, your results may vary

        Ghopper, I would tell her to not even worry about trying to make it to Baltimore/DC area. That would be like jumping from the frying pan into the fire. Screw that, and screw the odds of trying to make it that far if the SHTF already.

        A single female on the road, especially the interstates, could be a very big mistake and her last one.

        If she were my daughter in that situation, I’d say drive thru the GA mtns,on two-lane roads, about a three hour trip depending on what part of Atlanta she lives, and get to Cherokee, NC as fast as possible. Contrary to what some people think, there are a lot of native Americans there that have compassion for all peoples and still know a thing or two about survival. Her odds of finding a place of protection will be better there than anywhere.

        I’ve spent quite a bit of time there fishing and talking with the Cherokee people. (stay out of the Casino atmosphere). I’ve had nothing but good feelings and converstions with the older people. The casino has caused a cancer to run amuck within some of the younger generstions. A lot have lost their desire to do anything since they all get a check from the Casino. It has caused many to turn to the evils of alcohol and drug addiction because of idle hands. It isn’t rampant, but does exist.

        There are a lot of good folks in the mtn. region that would take her in. I would seriously consider it.

          • For the record, we have never been contacted by any member of an alphabet agency or arm of the Justice dept. However, it should be clear that web site forums and comment areas across the entire internet are regularly monitored by certain agencies within federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

            The fact is that these agencies have the power to shut down any web site, at any time, for any reason. If a user here were to post messages that are deemed by these agencies to pose an imminent danger to an individual or the government as a whole they would demand internet protocol address information for said user. This would be obtained voluntarily by us handing over this information with a legal subpoena or warrant having been presented, OR, they would simply seize the site and all of its data and pull the information themselves.

            So, it’s not about being scolded — it’s about the fact that the Federal government WILL take action should certain types of comments be identified.

            In the interest of keeping this site operational and open to the general public we are sometimes forced to remove certain types of comments. The percentage of such removals is extremely low — We don’t keep statistics on this, but the ‘removal rate’ is lower than 1 in 1000.

      And these SOB’s and certain harpies want to take away our self defense. Thankfully there are enough people in this country that are aware enough to realize that there are not enough police to protect them and won’t put up with these mindless gun grabbers doing much of anything to get our firearms. These end times are the good against the bad, those with values and priciples and those without anything substance to them, and the intelligent against the brain dead. That would those that understand and value the Constitution and its rights, and those pieces of garbage that want to destroy it and take ALL our rights away from us.

      All you have to do is ask someone do they feel you have to right to defend yourself with a firearms. If the answer is YES, then you probably know this person has something to them. IF the answer is NO, then that individual is most likely your enemy, the enemy of freedom, the enemy of what is right and justice, an enemy of the victims and the innocent, and most of all an enemy of basic rights as a human being. There are plenty of them that value the “poor” criminal that society made into, than the victims that have done nothing to harm anything or anyone.

      It is awful to see how ANYONE could ever if think of taking your firearms away from you, and thus your self defense to protect yourself. These sludge walkers have to be either without a conscience or without a functioning brain to try to take away people’s self defense. Europe is full of them, and why Russia would have a cakewalk to the Atlantic WHEN they decide to, no backbone of those countries to stop them. Same thing with Japan’s pacifist nation if China ever decided to invade Japan.

      Citizens cannot put up with this pacifism that has caused crime to explode in countries that give ALL the advantages to the criminal. Taking away people’s deterrents and their ability to defend themselves is like tying up an animal and throwing them to a wolf, mountain lion or whatever, it is against nature. Taking away people’s guns and their self defense is against nature, what is rational, and what is fair. Then not even having enough police the innocent. Sounds like to me a lot of these politicians are affiliated with the crime syndicates or been sniffing too much nose candy.

      By the way off the topic sort of because disasters lead to possible martial law, the Juan de Fuca plate had a 5.1 on the outer portion of one of the bottleneck sections of it to the south off the coast of Oregon. I have seen this too many times with the Nazca plate down in South America that lead to big earthquakes. You have earthquakes on the western side of these plates and it means the plate is on the move, ever so slightly, It means stress is building up. The Juan de Fuca is so locked that normally such movement you would have a 6-7.5 like down in South America, but not so. When the Cascadia fault goes it will likely be a 9.1-9.3 and each time you have one these quakes like this, especially in a bottleneck region of much higher concentrated stress, it means it needs to be watched much more closely.

        Good Morning BI,

        I’ve absorbed you missive above, as always many thanks for the insightful analysis. Over the last 24 hours we have seen activity at Vanuatu, and lesser activity in the Siberian region as well. Does either of these events – when coupled to the activity off the Oregon coast – alter your estimations as to probable, subsequent activity? My curiousity is at work here…

        Be advised, similarly to the missive which I previously transferred through Mac, there has been almost no noteable extra-solar activity of late. The salient here is that if the surmise contained therein is plausibly correct then there would be increases in the activity noted…increasingly so as the absence extended further through time…just a thought to retain here.

      Off topic here…but I want to post this nevertheless….

      The Alex Jones radio program has been pulled from the air here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. His program has been aired on KKGM 1630 AM for quite some time here.

      I tuned in today and his program was not on. Instead….we had southern Gospel quartet music.

      I called the radio station and their response was that KKGM was changing its programming and “returning to its roots of southern gospel music”. They wouldn’t elaborate beyond that, and the lady I spoke to was very terse in her response.

      So…..I guess southern gospel music draws a bigger listening audience than Alex Jones. (insert sarcasm here)

      So for now…..there is no Alex Jones program in the DFW market.

      I contacted Alex Jones’ via the infowars website and received a response that they did not know why the show had been taken off, but that they would not be on that station any longer.

      Quite a mystery here. And call me paranoid, but it makes me wonder who got to the management at KKGM.

      (Note: KKGM is a Christian oriented radio station….but really folks….hours and hours of non-stop southern gospel quartet music is going to be a bigger money-maker than Alex Jones? I’d love to be selling advertising for that. [insert the sarcasm again here] )

      So now…If I want to here the Alex Jones program, I have to be sitting at my computer so I can listen over the Internet.

        What’s wrong with southern gospel music? You should have your local station go Mexican like the station in my town did.

        What has probably happened is that being Christian radio, it doesn’t pull in the advertising dollars that a talk station does. They have to pay a lot of money to carry Alex Jones or any other national show. Putting a few gospel albums on the computer costs very little. They are probably just trying to keep solvent a little while longer.

          I have no problem with southern gospel music at all.

          I was not aware that they had to pay to have Alex Jones. I figured it was the other way around. I thought programs had to pay for airtime.

          I have no problem with them pulling the show if it was just a financial decision.

          My concern is that they may have been pressured to drop the show. That’s a horse of a different color.

          They certainly have offered no explanation beyond the terse response I got when I called.

          The station is owned by some guy named Mortenson…who owns some 40 other stations scattered around the mid-west and south I think.

          Again…I don’t argue their right to pull the show. But I will admit it’s got my paranoid meter pegged.

      Relying on the market while jobs are outsourced is insane.
      It all comes down to economics and social structures. Our once prosperous nation is being dismantled by bankers.
      Go figure. The most boring profession in the world. Banking. But these guys have planned for this for quite some time. Crafty bankers. Thomas Jefferson warned us about this but his words were left in the history books of the past.
      All that is left is for each of us to protect ourselves and our families from the evil bastards that they, and their recruits, are.

      Anyone here ever check out flexyourrights(dot)org? They had a good YouTube video on how to appropriately handle a traffic stop with a pushy (needlessly pushy) cop.

      Also, last July I was rear ended at a stoplight where a cop had just pulled off to direct rush hour traffic. We pulled the cars over. It was 105* so we were all out of our cars saving our gas during the stop. When I gave the officer my license, I wasn’t thinking and let him see my wallet when I removed my license. My ccw permit was next to license. He was a real cool character, chatting up me and the other guy who was rear ended. Then he went to the guy who hit us. When he came back he told me the other guy said I caused the accident, by putting my suv in reverse and slamming on the gas. I just cocked one eyebrow and said ‘ really, I don’t think so!’ as I laughed. He looked me over, smiled and just shook his head. I think he was testing me, but he was by no means an arse. Retired military, and former DC cop– def pro gun. He was just making sure I was not at risk of going postal. Still, never trust a ho….aaahhemmm I mean cop.

    70. This is one of the positive developments. fewer pigs = more freedom. We need to get a backbone. By the time you call a cop its usually too late, and half the time they come after you instead. We need to develop relationships within our communities, stay strong, stay sharp, and take care of our own.

        The stories here remind of some folks I knew as an undergrad. They were heavily involved in the Society for Creative Anachronism- those folks who dress up in medieval costumes and put on Renaissance festivals.

        They had friends in Colorado who were walking home from practicing with quarterstaves. Apparently a couple of guys thought these weird guys in strange clothes would be an easy mark and attempted to rob them.

        A few whacks from the quarterstaves and the crooks took off. Solved the problem with no police involved.

      The problem is: the government has gone from supplying services for the community, to being a protection agency.
      All the services the Government used to do have been sold to the lowest bidder. Leaving the Government to be the Protection Agency, sounds more like the Mafia.

        The “sequester” is only a decrease in the rate of spending increases and too small a percentage of spending to make a difference even it was a real cut. The US will spend more this year than last year.

        Morning JOG,

        Thanks, it is appreciated. It would appear that if you have a problem with your sewage (California) that it should be cleaned up first.

        The news this morning:

        Unemployment: Only 340,000 people filed for benefits last week. In a good economy it takes only 150,000 people filing. But this is good news!

        GDP: Last month figures for the United States came in (of course unexpectly) very low. A contraction is how it is refered to.

        Rosa Parks: Statue being unveiled in Washington DC. At same time the Supreme Court is debtaing the voting laws regarding black people?

        IRS: Announces because of Sequestration that refunds will be delayed. Like they had the money to pay out. They don’t. Because business for self people like me do not have the forms yet so we can file and pay the money into the system so it can be paid out to those who have not.

        Gun Control: Big push on to ram new laws into place before people forget why we need to do it. Very sad parents of Sandy Hook testifying on how sad they are???

        White House: Threatening Bob Woodward for exposing the madness coming out of the White House.

        Immigration: DHS releasing illeagal immigrants because of budget constraints. After all the time and money spent catching them.

        This is a government that we don’t have to fight. They are destroying themselves. Unfortunatley they are destroying us as well.

        Have a great day everyone. I have to go out and work to pay my 63 cents out of every dollar I make to support the above crap. :)

          TWO distinct possibilites exist here, bear with me.

          1) That there exists a real, non-imaginary body, the PTB, for want od a better name…which are actively massaging the world at large for thier own nefarious Goldman-Sachs vampire squid face-hugger ends…

          2) that what we see around us is in reality the simple manifestation of the formless, inchoate GREED which has come to define first Americana at large and thence through through export, the remainder of the globe broadly…

          …which of these rwo is actually operant is a mystery to me…one could easily argue either (or both) sides with equal ease I think. HOWEVER, I submit that in either case, what we are now seeing overall is in fact the equivalent of a corpse jsut moments after the heart has ceased to beat. Gluid is still moving within the body proper – ata greatly reduced arte – but the flow od essential ntrients and oxygen is already stopped. The decay processes which would normally occur in any such case are incipient, momentarily; witness Detroit, Camden NJ, San Benadino, Cleveland….the list goes on and on, does it not. The immune response in these places is either failing or has reached the point of total ceasation of function….and this WILL spread. Perhaps critical mass is alrady achieved, that point is arguable yet. But that the CANCER which is the Federal government is fully metasticised is inarguably true. America has a 72 lb tumor sucking the life out of the body proper… absorbing the bulk of the nutrution therefrom, the parient will not survive, any surgical remedy would be impossibly difficult with a probability of survival of Oh say, 0.1%

          Regardless of WHERE one looks, there is simply NO indication that any remaining vitality is left…except unless you are paying attention to the idiotic, massaged figures the government attempts to get us to believe. This I do believe though; “Stall speed” has been reached in the economy broadly…the seminal indication of this is suprisingly the Wal-Mart sales figures, which internal memo’s are only this morning revealing is even worse than the inital read was yesterday.

          …blood pooling in a corpse is an apt analogy here I think. Anywho, gotta fly for a bit…take care Bro…remember what I said previously.

      We should all thank Oakland’s neighborhood watch groups for bringing police non-feasance to national attention. Police, in the USA, have ceased to focus on Service & Protection, and instead have become glorified report writers and expensive traffic ticket writers. They’re far more interested in citing speeders and generating revenue, while remaining safe & warm in their cars, than they are in fighting crime. How often do today’s larceny victims got their merchandise back? When is the last time that a child molestation was prevented by a cop patrolling local neighborhoods? When is the last time that a victim’s rights superseded those of the criminal? Just take a look at the national, and state, crime statistics to glean how dismal police performance is today versus how much we pay to train, employ, and fund their retirements.

      It’s time to redirect a designated percentage of state budgets from police forces to volunteer armed, trained, neighborhood watch groups and stop vilifying those who stand up to violent thugs as vigilantes!

        @ pale rider. Isn’t it amazing how I have been warning about the south and the eastern flank of the Caribbean plate and then boom here comes the USGS confirming this. It is so maddening that the USGS doesn’t just state the obvious and let everyone know the truth. If I can see this, I would think they can to, you would think they would as I am not that special to know something that they don’t. They monitor wells, all of the; gas, oil, water, etc. for rises and drops that would indicate that a fault or even a volcano is getting ready to cause some major seismic upheavals.

        The Caribbean plate is really not all that large, it is ONLY about a little larger than the size of Texas and California combined, but it is the most influential in the future movement of the New Madrid of all the other plates. The Caribbean plate causes the twisting of the New Madrid fault by pushing against the southern boundaries of the North American plate that the New Madrid of course rides on. The Cocos plate that influnces Central America big time also plays a smaller part in the New Madrid. The Nazca plate interacting with the South American plate builds much pressure on the southern Caribbean plate even though those two plates are pretty much moving towards each other west to east and east to west.

        I want to thank you for keeping us update on this. People like yourself are going to be the reason why we are going to have advanced warning of some catastrophe hitting, whether it be geophysical or some impending war.

        Be Like Water, welcome here!

        Remember the “complete overload” and anguish you feel is EXACTLY what the Progressives are wanting. If you read their strategies, the themes are repetitive — overwhelm people, overwhelm the system, ridicule people, stay focused and organized, etc. They target Conservatives with an upside-down illogical methodology because we are rational thinkers and as Saul Alinsky said, it’s our Achilles Heel. To us, when actions and statements don’t make sense, it causes us to stress — we can’t make sense of their LACK of sense.

        Most of us feel overwhelmed at times — you’re not alone. This is what the Progressives want. They want us to feel defeated. To be worn down. HELL NO! NOMI. NOMI. and NOMIMF! So the best way to beat them is to take a breather, get re-focused, and remember not to let them get away with doing this to you/us.

        Just this past week, investigative journalist and author Bob Woodward has blown the whistle on Obama’s WH tactics. And now Lanny Davis is talking. We need better media coverage and maybe a few more journalists will man-up and join in so the group can hang the SOB through the media. Bob Woodward took down Nixon so let’s hope there are others who will join in. I’m thinking there are more than a few who are about to fix bayonets.

      @ Thinker. Just got on the computer after solving some problems with it. Saw the 6.9 in Ozernevskiy, Russia.

I thought it would be larger than 6.9 though, more like 7.5. I also still feel that the intenrational dateline is a big fat target for a large earthquake.

      Also on that comment I mentioned that eastern Russia has a good potential for a volcanic eruption within 6 weeks from that Feb. 14 date, which would make it 4 weeks now. When you had that 6.6 on the Asian/North American plate boundary it was obvious that something was coming, and once again within that 15 day period a 6.5+ did hit in one of the locations that it should have.

      Maybe off topic, but very intriguing, is the report that the highest numbers of bets being laid with the Irish and Brit bookies; on who the next Pope will be.

      The Cardinal with the highest numbers of bets either for/against, according to Reuters’s, is the card from Ghana; Peter Turkson. What a concept; a black Pope by the name of Peter.

      A few interesting facts: Ghana means= “Warrior King”
      It is holding major oil reserves, the sixth largest in Africa and ranking 25th in the world.
      The population has a mix of many different religions but the majority are some form of Christianity over 65% and Islam making up 16%.

      As Schultz(Hogan’s Heroes) would say: “Veerrrly Intelesting”.

        Plus, like they say, they’ll never go back to white popes…

    101. When a person in a ski mask takes your property he’s called a criminal. When a person in a suit does it he’s called a politician. Both should be thrown in prison and both are perfect cause for defending oneself.

    102. Senate panel postpones work on writing gun legislation, including bill to ban assault weapons

      The DNC is probably staging another mass shooting to manipulate the public with before resuming their gun grabber hearings. Wonder where it will be this time

        Not sure where but it wouldn’t surprise me to see it done with pump shotguns and semi-auto handguns. I think they haf sufficiently demonized semi-auto rifles, on to the next class of guns.

      Wow!! This same thing happened in the 80′s and early 90′s because wanted people to pay more money for more cops, etc. If they won’t answer to 911 calls, then that means they should be audited for extra income. The residents of those areas should receive a refund check from the city, state and feds. As well as, the freedom to maintain and control the area as they see fit.

      Civil servants do their job, to a point. Maybe it’s because I am no criminal, but all they have done for me is give me a ride home or just a warning when speeding. Somebody above must love me or something. I dunno. I still know one thing. What you call a “cop”, is just another name for laborer. One with a badge and a fancy whooped gizmo gadget car. :)

      It may be more a question of locale that tells the tale. Here in MN, they are people.
