Just Say NO!

With the elevation of Etch-a-Sketch Romney to challenge ObamaNation maybe it is time for We, The Exasperated, to just say NO!

It was originally Nancy Reagan’s idea after all. Can you just say NO? Will you just say NO?

Maybe it is my imagination, but I seem to see a number of examples in my daily life where people have just taken a tip from the lawlessness of ObamaNation and assumed the cause of Constitutional Restoration without consulting their neighbors, or without asking authorities for permission or without any real concern for consequences beyond the message of resistance and necessary disobedience.

To judge from radio commercials for Tax Resolution Services (CLICK LINK HERE)a number of people have wandered off the 1040 Income Tax reservation without regret or apology. Even at the low, low, settlement price of a 10 or 20 percent payout, people cannot be persuaded to come back to the mother ship and sign ZEE PAPER!

It is a somewhat mixed message. On one hand enough people have quit filing to the point where very expensive commercials try to persuade them to come clean and on the other hand all the commercials in the world hardly seem to dent the outcome.

So how about it? Will the person you see in the mirror every day find something, anything to just say NO?

Will you burn your 1040 form?

Will you remove the license plate from your car?

Will you refuse to renew your drivers license?

Will you leave the little checkbox for race on some obnoxious form empty?

Will you refuse to volunteer your Social Security number just because some file clerk demands it?

Will you light a cigarette in a NO Smoking zone even if you do not smoke?

For Heaven’s sake just drive around the parking lot without your seatbelt fastened!

Anything to break the hypnotic trance of tyranny which suffocates us all!

Surely you can find some element of resistance to let the world know you have cast off the cloak of sheeplehood.

Do not ask me what I think. Do not ask me what I intend to do. YOU decide. All by yourself.

Remember the repeal of 1,000,000 statutes begins with a single dissident act.

When will you begin your march?

Really, it’s for the children…….

Nick Vujicic, Genuine Tough Guy

Would that Chuck Norris be so lucky to be as tough as this guy.

Even if you are a minority within a minority of a minority, you can take lessons from a guy who is literally in a class by himself.

As the venerable Colonel Jeff Cooper observed: “Humans use their minds to fight, weapons are just accessories.”

Every day of his life Nick Vujicic has used his mind to fight.

Never say never again!

Operation EFAD From Travis McGee

Since my Free Republic Champion (Copernicus where art thou?) has been AWOL for over a year I do not follow events at Free Republic as closely as I once did, but I have learned long time Freeper and author Travis McGee has put his money where his heart is and concocted an interesting Falun Gong saber -rattling exercise.

On March 1st his contemporary action thriller *Enemies, Foreign and Domestic* will be available for free download from Amazon in a maneuver called Operation #EFAD.

The idea is to pump up download numbers so quickly the book will rise to the top of Amazon’s Bestseller Index.

You can help in two ways:

1. Publish the link everywhere.
2. Download the book.

It is a good read, but even if you already have a paid copy download another one for friends and family.

This could be a useful Public Relations Coupe if it works as designed.

Since Free Republic now seems to be AWOL two additional links to help explain the EFAD concept:

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Communiqué #1: D-Day Minus Seven, February 23

Want to join a beat-up old ex-Navy SEAL, ocean sailor and book writer on a real-world covert cyber operation?

I knew you did. So here’s the deal. The idea is a national clandestine psyop, using my first novel as a vehicle.

On next Thursday, March 1, Enemies Foreign And Domestic will be put into Amazon Kindle’s free library.

Where EFAD’s free download promotion will be different from those of the thousands of fantasy/romance/vampire novels currently offered on Kindle, is that I’m simultaneously coordinating a mass plan to ensure that Operation EFAD goes hyper-viral on all constitutionally-oriented, freedom-loving, and Second Amendment websites and blogs at the same time.

Or on at least on as many as I can reach, and that is where you come in. There are literally hundreds of patriotic websites and blogs, and I can only reach a few. You can reach them all, every last one. And then some. More about this in the next communiqué on D Minus Six.

The Duty To Assist

Today’s video highlights an important distinction between actual military combat veterans (in opposite corners of the country) and the armed thugs who populate the United States law enforcement culture – the ability to carry out a necessary assignment with honor and dignity.

Most American citizens have never met the two most important people who have an inordinate unwholesome influence over the course of their daily life – the Police Academy Trainer and the University Law Professor.

For better or worse, the Academy Trainer and the Law Professor almost single-handedly determine the actual street level application of law.

So, for example, in the case of Law Enforcement, We, the Trampled, are burdened with the unfathomable concept of “officer safety” which cheerfully countenances the summary execution of family pets and sucker punched pedestrians on the slimmest pretext in the course of an ordinary encounter all because 9 out of 10 Police Academy trainers agree it is “a good idea”!

Or, in the case of the accredited Attorney-at-law, entire philosophical constructs of principle and theory are completely ignored by the Law School establishment in favor of ‘stare decisis’ and case law!

Which brings us to today’s video of a California Sheriff cold cocking a citizen without shame in full public view and the soldier who immediately spotted the violation of protocol embodied therein.

Unlike the modern patrol officer modern combat soldiers enter truly hostile and dangerous environments with a lawyer on each shoulder who eagerly await any opportunity to condemn them for any misstep -intentional or accidental. They accept the hazard as part of the assigned duty and perform fearlessly.

Compare that mentality to the “officer safety culture” which escalates the smallest encounter into a life threatening situation.

Thank you soldier for your service to our country both on active duty and off.

Coincidentally William Norman Grigg discusses virtually the same topic in his current column on the excellent Pro Libertate blog:

Excerpt:

Anne Dekins was a loud-mouthed party girl — or at least, that’s what the arrest warrant suggested. Whatever she may have done in the past, Miss Dekins was quietly minding her own business when Officer Samuel Bray found her on the street and began to haul her away.

Dekins wasn’t inclined to go quietly, and she put up a struggle. Her cries for help attracted the interest of several armed men led by an individual named Tooley, who confronted Bray and demanded to know what he was doing to the frantic woman. The officer produced his official credentials and insisted that he was making a lawful arrest for “disorderly conduct.” When witnesses disputed that description, Bray called for backup.

Tooley and his associates ordered Bray to release the woman, and then took action to enforce that lawful order. After Bray’s partner was killed in the ensuing struggle, Tooley and his associates were arrested for murder. The trial court threw out the murder charge, ruling that the warrant was defective. Since the arrest was illegal, the court pointed out, Dekins had a right to resist – and bystanders likewise had a right, if not a positive duty, to assist her. The defendants were eventually found guilty of manslaughter, but quickly pardoned and set free.

By trying to enforce an invalid warrant, Bray “did not act as a constable, but a common oppressor,” observed the trial court. Tooley and the other bystanders were properly “provoked” by the act of aggressive violence against Anne Dekins, and their forceful but measured response – first demanding that the abductor release the hostage, then exercising defensive force to free her – was entirely appropriate.

Lawless violence against the helpless “is a sufficient provocation to all people out of compassion” in any circumstance, observed the court, “much more where it is done under a colour of justice, and where the liberty of the subject is invaded….” In fact, an act of that kind carried out by a law enforcement official is nothing less than “a provocation to all the subjects of England.”

How To: Kill 11 Million People

Brits Protest American Internet Censorship

American Legislative Tyranny is so out-of-control the British have begun to protest.

You know, England where they are subjects, not citizens, and under the thumb of the Official Secrets Act? Yeah, those British.

Seems at least one Brit is concerned about the implications of the Stop Online Piracy Act and provides some startling examples of how it will be applied with the aid of current examples.

His soliloquy is, of course, enhanced by that wonderful upper crust Monty Python accent that makes even the most droll topic seem somehow absolutely riveting – a good thing- since the people in the United States most likely to be immediately affected by this legislation would be, of course, your local gun blogger, 2nd Amendment RKBA Activist.

Yes, David Codrea would no longer have to plead with his readers to “share the link” because there would no longer be a link to share.

As far as the need to share this link, it has already gone from 2,000 + this morning to 255,000+ as I write this.

Thank Heaven for British diction! Enjoy!
