Control Of You Own Life

Food has always been a tool the elite have used to control the masses. When you control the food supply, you control everything, even life and death. A starving man is more likely to sell his soul for some food then someone with a full tummy. The relatively free market of food production and distribution that has been in place in this nation for a few centuries now has led to unrivaled prosperity. You walk or drive to your local store walk in and buy what ever you need with little work and no need for a garden. Food can, in fact, be grown for practically nothing if you have the land, the time and can afford to buy just a few heirloom seeds to grow the organic vegetables necessary for good health. This will save you money, is better for you than grocery store vegetables which are surely genetically modified and contain unwanted chemicals, and helps you to become less dependent on the state for your survival. The less you need outside help the better your chance at survival and the less you have the government in your pocket the more money you will have to buy other needed items. Just think about the tax that could be saved if you were to stop buying vegetables from the store for just one year, not to mention the money you would save on the vegetables themselves. We have stopped buying so many items because now we make them to use around the house. Like Windex, we now use 1/3rd ammonia and 2/3rd water and it works great. And ant spray is $8.99 a can but if you use 1 part ammonia and 3 parts water it does just as well and cleans at the same time. There are so many little tricks to cut your spending and save money. And help you control your own life and be more back to basic living.

Collapse Is Coming......... I can Feel It!!

I feel it in my bones and I know our time is running out! Just look around at our country and our cities and towns. The roads are falling apart, or schools have less teachers and more students, our hospitals ER's are over run with people who have lost their health care when they lost their job. Now the ER is their primary care doctor because they can't afford to go to their regular doctor. I talked with a friend back home in North Carolina and she said that the ER visits are up 400% in the last year and looks to go up even more. I see the price of just about everything going up and the cost of living going up but at the same time pay and your hours at work are getting cut. How is this recovery, how is this good for this country or the people that live here. I see the debt ceiling thing as a spark to the doom of this country and the winds of change will light the spark into a fire and the collapse will happen. And when it hit God help us because the walking dead of this country will run crazy and take and steal everything they can get there hands on because they deserve it and have earned it with all their hard work and daily devotion to the false gods of government and the New World Order. But the one thing the the False gods and the New World Order didn't tell them was that sheep are just for slaughter and to use as fertilizer or a work force. So all you good sheep just need to die and feed the ground or work the ground to feed the elite of the world, either way you are no more than the walking dead!
I know bad times are ahead and a hard life where every day you get up and fight for survival, but I would live three life times that way before I lived even one as a sheep. I will not bend my knees to The New World Order nor give in to their false gods. I ask you my friends to make a stand for true freedom and for real life, get your house in order and have food, water and other needed supplies to survive the coming collapse. And ready you guns and stand watch because the light over the hill is not day break it's the horde of walking dead of The New World Order.

Take What You Can, Give Nothing Back!!!!

This is a pirate saying but it sure sounds like what our government is doing to us now. So does this mean that our government is a pack of greedy hording pirate's? I say yes and I can prove it, just look at the state of our country and the state of housing, unemployment, stocks, retirement funds and your pay check from week to week. Every year I get a pay raise but every year I get taxed more because my pay raise has pushed me into a higher tax bracket. So my dollar a year raise gets cut in half with the tax. I pay taxes on my gas, food, power, and everything I buy plus I pay taxes on my income and at the end of the year if I have not paid what they think is due then I get a big year end tax bill and if I don't have it then I get hit with 15% interest on top of my tax bill. They hit us coming and going and on top of it all they want to tax us some more to help with the debt. I say piss on there bills I WILL NOT PAY!!!! They ran up the bill let them eat cake!!! The collapse is what this country needs to rid the fools and the weaker people and then we can start new and build up a better country to live in.
Take What You Can, Give Nothing Back should be put on the front of every government building!!!!

More Propaganda!!!!

http://www.infowars.com/feds-profiling-whites-middle-class-americans-as-terrorists/

Well it looks like I'm a terrorist and I didn't even know it! If you look at infowars.com and read the story and see the video you will see the newest load of propaganda from Department of Homeland Security.
Lets look at me,
I am a white man
I own guns and ammo
I fly the Don't Tread On Me flag on my home and truck
I store food and water and other survival gear
I don't trust my Government
I own a copy of the Constitution of the United States
I want to be a freeman and live without Government in every part of my life
And I think I have Free Speech and the RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS!!!

So I must be a terrorist!!!!!
Can you say POLICE STATE? Because that is what we are living in and everyday it is getting worse. So as the mass of fools out there line up like good little sheep the few of us who see the BS and know the truth stand ready to fight the evil empire and the NWO!!! Now is the time to get ready if you are not prepping then start now!!!! And if you are prepping kick it into high gear!!!!! Time is short!

Hump Day And The Mess We Are In!!!!!!!!!

It the middle of the week and not much going own. The dollar is dying and that's not new, gold and silver fell yesterday but back up today. It's so funny sad how messed up the stock market is and how much they mess with the numbers. I'm sure the propping up of the market is all that is keeping it from the big crash. The only real safe bet is to buy food, water, ammo, guns, gold, silver, medical supplies and other survival supplies. I still buy a little silver off and on but I put the mass of my prepping fund into more food, ammo and guns! I'm sure the collapse is coming, I just don't know when or what will set it off. I am sure that the crash of the dollar and the collapse of the economy will play the biggest part in the collapse of this country but with the ups and downs of the economy who the hell knows when the big crash is coming?
Worked a little on my preps for the last few days and found a few good books I just love used book stores and goodwill. I found two old books yesterday both George Orwell's 1984, $1.00 each. One of then I will giveaway on this blog soon. The other I will add to my stock of books. I found more lamp oil at goodwill four gallons .99cents each so less than $4.00 for all four. Then I found a old camp stove it was $5.00 but I passed on it because I have three already, but it just shows the cool stuff you can find on the cheap at thrift stors. So get out and look around and keep prepping!!!!!!

The Dollar Is Dying!

We all knew the dollar was dying and after the jump in metals(Gold/Silver) today we can see just a little better. Silver was at $40.55, up +$1.28 and Gold was at $1605.10, up $11.00. Big jumps for both and I'm sure the price of both will go down a little because I'm sure the master minds behind the Fed and Wall Street will mess will the numbers some to pull the price down. I have always thought the the master minds behind the power of money have messed with the market to push up the numbers and make the stock market look better than it is and when we have the big drops I think it's the market setting it's self right. I know that the economy is in very bad shape and getting worse with each passing day. But if you look at Wall Street or the news all you see is how things are getting better and how the market is up. But if you dig into the info of the economy you will find that unemployment is higher than they are saying and in some states it's damn near 20% - 25% but you never see that in the news. Look at Detroit's unemployment numbers officially, Detroit's unemployment rate is just under 30%. But the city's mayor and local leaders are suggesting a far more disturbing figure that the actual jobless rate, they say, is closer to 50%. As many have noted, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which culls federal unemployment data, does not account for all of the jobless in its widely-quoted national unemployment figures. Among those omitted: part-time workers who are looking for full-time jobs and frustrated job seekers who abandon their job search altogether.
So, the economy is, without a doubt, in the tank.  Now, there is talk of cutting the size of the debt reduction deal to around $2.5 trillion or even lower over the next ten years, down from the optimistic $4 trillion.  That’s just $250 billion a year in reductions.  With $1.5 trillion in annual budget deficits, that still leaves way more than $1 trillion in red each and every year, so how is this going to help us? It's not going to help because we are on a sinking ship and only a few on board even care, most of the people are watching American Idol, Big Brother or some other BS show on the Boob Tube or the Dumb, Dumb Box. The sheep of this country do as they are told and believe everything that is on the News and because of this they will follow the evil empire right into the FEMA Camps. Ayn Rand once famously said, “You can ignore reality, but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.” The consequences of reality are America is already Dead, and so is the dollar.  Even if a debt deal is reached in time to avoid the August 2nd deadline for debt default, the dollar and this country is dead and I don't think any one can save it.
The only thing we can do is dig in and prep!!! Stock up on all the needed items to survive the coming collapse. Our time is short my friends and the light over the hill in not the daylight! Wake Up and make a stand for life and make a stand for your survival!

Here is the Gold chart for the last ten years! I think it's gone up a little.

Doomsday Preppers

I found all four parts and like them but the first two have problems with there plans. And letting people know that you prep and what you have is crazy. And if any of them don't think some people they know will not see this and not show up looking for a hand out they are crazy. I'm not 100% ready and don't think I will ever feel as if I am but that group from South Carolina looks to have about 99% of it covered. I see holes in there plans for some of the people in the video, but I'm sure a few of you could look at my plans and find holes. It's good to see what others are doing I just know I could never put my info out that much.
You should check out the four parts it was a good video.

What Future Does This Country Have?

I was reading this morning and came across the posting at infowars.com http://www.infowars.com/outcasts-tonight-tens-of-thousands-of-formerly-middle-class-americans-will-be-sleeping-in-their-cars-in-tent-cities-or-on-the-streets/  It is about the homeless of this country living in there RV's and cars. But if you read the posting you will see what most of us already know and that is how it really works in this country.
So you work hard all your life it could be 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 years of work and you have lost your job and can't get a new one, not even a $8.00 fast food job because they are just not there. Your unemployment has run out and in the weeks you were getting unemployment you had to dip into your savings to pay the bills and now that is gone, so next is your retirement and damn you have to take a 20-25% tax for getting your money out before your retirement age, which is going to be raised again pushing it even further out of reach. For the first time in many years the life expediency in down and I think it's because the working class is getting killed with fees, taxes and the high cost of just about everything we buy. So you get your retirement money by this time your unemployment is gone and now all your have is the money you had planned to use during your golden years. So you take the only things you have left and pack them into your Class C Motor home and hit the road looking for work and trying to make a living or just have a life. But you find out real fast that no one cares about you, not your government not your state and not your city! If you stop for the night in most cities don't try to park your RV for a nights sleep because the fools with the badge will kick your ass out of town or write you a nice ticket maybe you will get both because the great leaders don't want to see you, look at you or have your poor ass in there cities. The new law is if your poor, homeless or down and out they would like you to stay the flip out of there towns or cities. You know the old saying, "out of sight, out of mind" and if they don't see you they don't think about you, Like they care a rats ass about any of us.
Tent cities and RV's with people living in them are popping up all over the country and the way we are dealing with it is to run them off. Why the flip are we all not in the streets fighting the leaders for the treatment of these people? I don't think we should take them in as our own and feed them and give them anything they need, but get off there backs and let them care for them self's. Most of the tent city and RV people are just trying to get on there feet and back to work. I'm sure with all people there are the few who are just riding the system and you get them with any group of people but as I see it most of them are good people. You know people like you and me who just ran out of time or money and now are in a fight for there survival.
If this country continues to knock your feet out from underneath you every time you try to stand up then what future does this country have?

Quartzsite, AZ

I have been keeping an eye on this event in Quartzsite, AZ every day we walk into a Police State and just like good sheep don't ask any questions. It looks like the Police Chief is becoming King and is walking on anyone who gets in his way. The Police Chief Jeff Gilbert has asked the town council to declare a “state of emergency” due to all of the publicity the town has received over the arrest of a reporter at an open meeting in June.

The town council voted 5-0 in favor of the action; Mayor Ed Foster did not attend the emergency meeting Sunday afternoon. Gilbert reportedly said the action was needed because Jennifer Jones was “inciting riots” after videos of her arrest at the meeting sprung up across the Internet.

Check out the full story at: http://www.infowars.com/jennifer-jones-az-police-chief-declares-martial-law-after-being-exposed-on-infowars-com/

I remember when I was young seeing Billy Jack and the Quote, " When Policemen Break the Law, then there isn't any law just a fight for survival!"

Lets hope the good people of Quartzsite, AZ have the will to survive!!!!

New Bill Introduced in House Asks Citizens to Voluntarily Pay Down National Debt

So they spend our money like crazy for dumb ass stuff and run this country into the ground and now want to tax the hell out of us? I don't remember asking for any of there BS and I will no longer be paying for any of there BS. I am 100% done with this sick ass government and will not play there little game anymore. I am looking for more ways to get out from under the beast and it's unlawful taxes. One day I will be a free man and will live my life my way without the evil government hands in my pocket!

I found this at infowars.com

Earlier this month, Rep. Chaka Fattah, a Pennsylvania Democrat, floated the idea of imposing a tax of 1% on every transaction to pay down the national debt. The pencil-necked geeks in the district of criminals took one look at this and scoffed. It would need to be closer to 5-6%, they argued, in order to pay down even a small part of an astronomical debt.

Of course, the debt is so far out in the stratosphere that no reasonable amount of taxation – or unreasonable, for that matter – would even approach paying it down.
Since the United States dumped the gold standard and went to worthless fiat currency in 1971, the national debt has skyrocketed to more than $14 trillion dollars. It is now greater than our yearly GDP thanks to the current economic depression.
However, when added together with the unfunded liabilities from Medicare and Social Security, the national debt is well over a $100 trillion, a number almost inconceivable.
Now Congress wants you to be a patriotic citizen and volunteer to pay down the debt.
H.R. 2411, entitled “Reduce America’s Debt Now Act of 2011” and introduced on July 6, would “provide for an employee election on Form W-4 to have amounts deducted and withheld from wages to be used to reduce the public debt.” The legislation was referred to the Committee on Ways and Means.
You have to love career politicians. They say the debt piled up for wars and sweetheart deals for mega-corporations is “public” and you have to pay it back to the bondholders.
It’s not your debt and you don’t owe a red cent to the bankers.
Last month Ron Paul, practically the only sane politician in Washington D.C., said the only way to deal with the national debt would be to default on “obligations” to the Federal Reserve and the bankers.
So long as the current crop remains in Congress, however, this is not likely to happen. They will muddle along and take instructions from the Federal Reserve and the bankers until the United States ends up like Greece.
Also, there is no guarantee — if this legislation passes and citizens actually contribute to it – that the politicians will use it to pay down the debt.
Since Johnson and the “Great Society” of unabashed spending, politicians have moved money from Social Security into the general fund government uses to pay for things like wars and socialism for transnational corporations.
If you trust these guys, you may also be interested in a bridge I have for sale on the dark side of the moon.

16 Reasons To Feel Really Depressed About The Direction That The Economy Is Headed


If you do not want to feel really depressed, you might not want to read this article. The U.S. economy is coming apart at the seams, and there are a whole lot of indications that things are about to get even worse.


After a time of relative stability, the pace of job cuts is starting to pick up again, inflation is rising but paychecks are not, the U.S. housing crisis shows no signs of ending, millions of American families are drowning in debt and all of the recent polls show that the faith of the American people in our economy is eroding.

As you read the statistics in this article, try to keep in mind that there are scores of families from coast to coast that are barely surviving from month to month. It can be a soul-crushing experience to work as hard as you can and yet justbarely be able to pay the mortgage and put food into the mouths of your kids. The reason why so many Americans believe that we are in a “recession” or a “depression” is because that is what they feel like they are living through every single day.

The number of Americans that are really depressed about the direction of the economy continues to grow. At first most Americans had expected the U.S. economy to bounce back after the recession “like it always does”, but now hope is turning into desperation as people start realizing that this time things are different.

Most Americans are very eager for things to go back to normal. Unfortunately, things look like they are about to get even worse.

The following are 16 reasons to feel really depressed about the direction of the economy….

#1 A newly released National Federation of Independent Business polldiscovered that U.S. small businesses let go of more workers than they hired in June. Previously, the poll had registered four monthly gains in net jobs in a row. Some analysts believe that this may be another indication that the employment market is getting softer once again.

#2 Another newly released jobs report found that the number of job cuts being planned by U.S. employers increased by 11.6% in June.

#3 There are fewer payroll jobs in the United States today than there were back in 2000 even though we have added 30 million people to the population since then.

#4 There are officially 6.2 million Americans that have been unemployed for more than 6 months. There are millions of others that have also been out of work that long but they have become so discouraged about looking for work that the U.S. government considers them “to no longer be in the workforce”.

#5 It now takes the average unemployed worker in America nearly 40 weeksto find a new job.

#6 Paychecks are not keeping up with inflation. In May, the average hourly wage in the United States was 1.6 percent lower than 12 months earlier.

#7 Food and gas prices have been absolutely soaring over the past year. McDonald’s, Hershey and Coca-Cola have all announced price increases this year. One recent survey found that 9 out of 10 U.S. workers do not expect their wages to keep up with soaring food prices and soaring gas prices over the next 12 months.

#8 There are disturbing indications that the business community expects the economy to slow down even more in the months ahead. For example, pre-orders for Christmas toys from China are way down.

#9 As of April, there were 6.39 million home loans in the United States that were either delinquent or in foreclosure. Included in that were 675,000 home loans that had not had a single payment made on them in two years.

#10 Approximately 28 percent of all home loans in the United States are currently “underwater”.


#11 Overall, American households are about 7.7 trillion dollars poorer than they were back in early 2007.

#12 As a percentage of GDP, the total amount of debt in the United States is now far higher than it ever has been in any other era of U.S. history. Things were not even close to this bad during the Great Depression.

#13 One of the key measures of consumer confidence in the United States has hit a seven-month low.

#14 According to Gallup, the percentage of Americans that lack confidence in U.S. banks is now at an all-time high of 36%.

#15 According to one recent poll, 39 percent of Americans believe that the U.S. economy has now entered a “permanent decline”.

#16 Another recent survey found that 48 percent of Americans believe that it is likely that another great

Depression will begin within the next 12 months.
So what is the United States going to look like if we do have another major economic downturn?
If the U.S. economy continues to get worse and worse, will what is happening in Greece eventually start happening in this country?
Let us certainly hope that our cities do not descend into chaos any time soon.
However, we should not just stick our heads in the sand and pretend that everything is going to be okay.
Those of us that are aware of what is happening to the economy should take this time to get prepared.
We should all be getting out of debt. When the economy tanks and interest rates start to spike you don’t want a horde of creditors hunting you down.
We should all be reducing our expenses and learning to live on less. It is those that are “lean and mean” that will have the best chance of making it through a major downturn successfully.
We should all be storing up emergency food and supplies. After all, you take out insurance on all kinds of other things, don’t you? We all need to be fully prepared just in case the worst happens.
The truth is that most Americans are totally unprepared for economic troubles. As the financial crisis of 2008 demonstrated, when people lose their jobs and their wealth they will come in and take everything away from you. And it is not just your home that you could lose. When you don’t have any more money left there is a chance that authorities will take everything away from you.
For example, according to one local news report, six kids were taken away permanently from their parents just because they were homeless and living in a storage shed….
“You shouldn’t take our kids because we’ve fallen on hard times,” said Prince Leonard, a married father of six whose family resides in a northeast Houston storage shed.
The Leonards moved in three years ago after the father, an unemployed welder, was hired as a maintenance worker.
Well, it turns out that the storage shed actually had “an air conditioner, a refrigerator and two personal computers”, so they were not living too terribly.
But this is what happens to so many poor families today – “child protective services” will come in and take their children away at the drop of a hat.
Poor people are an easy target. They know that they are unlikely to fight back and so thousands and thousands of young children are constantly being ripped out of homes and never returned.
Don’t think that it can never happen to you. It is happening all over the country.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media continues to act like everything is just fine. As our economy continues to be caught in a death spiral they are busy cracking jokes and talking about celebrities.
While the country is falling apart, the following video is an example of what passes for news in America these days….
The sad reality of the matter is that “the American Dream” is dying.
Every month more American families are slipping out of the middle class and into poverty.
Over the past four years, the number of Americans on food stamps has risen by 18 million. A higher percentage of Americans is enrolled in government anti-poverty programs than ever before.
There will be millions of Americans that will not be able to sleep tonight because they are being eaten alive by worry and fear. If the economy does not turn around soon, there will be even more American families that are living in their cars and eating out of dumpsters.
Our economic problems are a horrible nightmare that never seems to end. We are literally watching the greatest economy on earth crumble before our very eyes.
So if you feel really depressed about all this, nobody is going to blame you.
But pulling yourself together and getting yourself and your family prepared for the really hard times that are coming might be a better course of action.

Go take a look at my giveaway for a great book.

Important Paper Work And How To Keep It Safe......

Important Paper Work!


When it comes to safeguarding your important personal documents, safe-deposit boxes used to be the only solution for the typical person. But recently, fireproof safes have become an affordable option, allowing you to keep your documents safe and within easy reach. Recognizing which documents deserve such protection can help you to make a plan for life after a disaster. Your first priority in protecting your information should be your personal identity documents. Your passport, living will, Social Security card, tax documents, birth certificate, any vital health records and a copy of your driver's license should go in your safe. You might also include marriage or divorce documents, military records, degrees and professional licenses or certifications and wills. Pertinent real estate records, including deeds, titles, title insurance, homeowners insurance, real estate taxes, and home inspections for any properties you own, should be stored in the safe. You also will want to store documentation regarding any other large assets, such as your car/truck. As with your personal documents, keep copies of the originals in a separate location. Prepare an inventory of your household goods, complete with receipts for high-cost items. Having an organized list of your home contents to give your insurance company can help get claims paid quickly. Make two sets of copies of any original documents you store in your safe and keep them in a separate location, both preferably off-site one set with a relative and the other with a trusted friend or a safe-deposit box at your bank. Having a backup plan to your backup plan is not just smart it’s damn smart and the best way to be if you are planning to survive a disaster or event of doom.

And as we are talking about a fireproof safe let’s talk a little about having some cash on hand. You should always have about $200- $500 dollars of small bills in your safe to use in a Bug out event. Just look at it like this a major disaster as hit your city and there is no power any place and you and your wife/husband have said,” that’s it we are out of here” but you have no cash and only have your ATM or debt card. No power in your area and maybe for miles away so without cash you are up the river without a paddle. So always keep some cash in your safe and I even keep a small amount of cash hidden in my truck for just this kind of event.

Keep all your documents in a folder that would be very easy to get and go. You would want to take any and all important documents with you in case of a disaster of an event of doom. And have a money bag like the banks has to put your cash and other valuables in so you can take them with you. After most disasters you will have looters and you don’t want your loot got!



And just remember that fireproof safes are not indestructible. A large fire could heat the safe enough to scorch paper or destroy electronic media inside. And please bolt your safe to the slab of your house because a safe not bolted to the floor is just a gift to a theft that breaks into your home. Be smart and think smart and live smart.

Libertarian Party Asks Florida Sherriffs To Arrest TSA Agents

Steve Watson

Infowars.com
July 5, 2011

The Libertarian Party of Florida has written to the sheriff of every county in the state demanding that they arrest any TSA agent who conducts an “enhanced” pat-down on charges of sexual battery.
“We, The People of the State of Florida must turn to you as our last line of defense against a federal government that is usurping authority and ignoring the rule of law.” the letter, signed by party chairman Adrian Wyllie, states.
The party cites electronic and bodily searches carried out on Florida citizens as “egregious” violations of the Fourth Amendment, as well as Article One, Section 12 of the Florida Constitution, which prohibits searches and seizures without probable cause.
The letter, which was also emailed to 67 sheriffs across the state, points out that under Florida law searches carried out by TSA agents fall within the definition of felony sexual battery.




Full text of LIbertarian Party Of Florida’s letter:




Dear Sheriff,



On this day in 1776, our forebears founded this Nation by declaring their independence from an oppressive government. This beautiful and timeless document expressed the self-evident truth that all people have certain inalienable rights, upon which no government can infringe. They asserted that governments are formed among men to secure these rights, not to impede or restrict them.

The Libertarian Party of Florida is reaching out to you, and to all of Florida’s 67 Constitutional Sheriffs. We, The People of the State of Florida must turn to you as our last line of defense against a federal government that is usurping authority and ignoring the rule of law.

I am referring specifically to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and their egregious violations of the United States Constitution, as well as the Florida Constitution and state law.

Every single day, TSA employees conduct electronic and bodily searches upon tens of thousands of Florida citizens and visitors at airports, and more recently at bus terminals, rail stations, and highways. They are searching the persons and seizing the effects of travelers without warrant or probable cause. Specifically, they are in blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which reads as follows:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

These TSA agents are also in clear violation of Article One, Section 12 of the Florida Constitution, which reads as follows:

“Searches and seizures.— The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, and against the unreasonable interception of private communications by any means, shall not be violated. No warrant shall be issued except upon probable cause, supported by affidavit, particularly describing the place or places to be searched, the person or persons, thing or things to be seized, the communication to be intercepted, and the nature of evidence to be obtained.”

In addition, one of the methods by which the TSA agents conduct these searches, referred to as the “Enhanced Pat Down,” is clearly within the definition of felony sexual battery, as codified in Florida Statute 794.011.

I would like to point out that this statute clearly defines that it is a first degree felony when sexual battery is committed by a law enforcement agent in paragraph 4(g), which reads:

“When the offender is a law enforcement officer, correctional officer, or correctional probation officer as defined by s. 943.10(1), (2), (3), (6), (7), (8), or (9), who is certified under the provisions of s. 943.1395 or is an elected official exempt from such certification by virtue of s. 943.253, or any other person in a position of control or authority in a probation, community control, controlled release, detention, custodial, or similar setting, and such officer, official, or person is acting in such a manner as to lead the victim to reasonably believe that the offender is in a position of control or authority as an agent or employee of government.”

As Sheriff, you have the absolute duty to enforce the law uniformly and without prejudice. You are, at best, engaged in selective enforcement by choosing to further ignore these flagrant violations of federal and state law. At worst, you are complicit.

If you have TSA agents within your county that are violating the law, then you must act. Warn the TSA agents that they are subject to arrest if they continue to violate the law. Should they continue, then you must begin making arrests.

We urge you to remember the oath you took to support, protect and defend the Constitution of both the State of Florida and the United States of America. On behalf of all Floridians, the Libertarian Party of Florida calls on you to do exactly that.

We turn to you, our Constitutional Sheriffs, to enforce the law in accordance with your sworn duty.

Sincerely,
Adrian Wyllie, Chairman
Libertarian Party of Florida

Sleep When the Wind Blows

A farmer needed an extra hand to help on his farm. One young man came to interview for the job. "What are your qualifications?" the farmer asked. "I can sleep when the wind blows," the young man said. This simple reply confused the farmer, but he was desperate for help and the young man was hired.


The young man was a diligent worker through the harvest season, but the farmer still questioned his answer.

Autumn ended and the first cold storm of winter came late one night. The farmer panicked as the winds began to blow. Calling the young man for help, the farmer grabbed his coat and pulled heavy boots on his feet. He was disappointed to find the young man asleep in bed at a time like this. Grudgingly he ventured out alone planning to shuffle all of the animals in the barn and then fix that last hole in the roof. He mumbled about the young man sleeping and was sure all the farm equipment was left standing in the field, collecting rust from the snow.

However, when the farmer reached the barn all the animals were tucked safely inside. In fact, clean hay had already been set out for the new day. Not a single hole could be found in the roof, and the tractor was parked perfectly in the shed.

"Who could have done it?" the farmer wondered. And then, he realized what the young man's answer meant, "I can sleep when the wind blows."
