Charges Dropped! Lemonade Anyone??

Hey guys!! I have been so busy with life and love that I completely forgot to give any updates regarding my legal situation!
Just to let everyone know all charges against the "lemonade liberators" were dropped!!!! We fought the state and we won WE DID IT!! For further detail the associated free press did a pretty damn good article about the whole situation and it was by far my favorite interview of them all so please check it out!!!!
Ms. Dill added, “We felt that if the police were going to come onto people’s property and shut down their lemonade stands, then we were going to take it to them and set up a lemonade stand right in front of the Capitol.” After their arrest and interrogation for nearly five hours while handcuffed to a wall, the three activists were given the option of urinating in cups and undergoing drug tests in order to avoid trial. Recognizing these constitutional violations, they refused, which added an additional charge of contempt of court. Additionally, the court granted a “stay away” order that barred them from the U.S. Capitol. Duffield explained his views. “Even though we haven’t yet been proven guilty of any crime, we’re banned from Capitol Hill, which in my estimation is a violation of my First Amendment right to petition government for [redress of] grievances as I can no longer access the offices of my congressional representatives.” The original charges—unlawful conduct, failure to obey a police officer and vending without a permit—were all dropped and replaced by the federal charge of illegally selling goods and services. Each facing up to a year in jail, the lemonistas were surprised that the government dropped its case.
They have no plans for future protests, but Duffield commented, “I’m of the opinion that if you don’t stand up for your future and the future of your country and your children, then you might not have one.” Commenting on how friends had stated that having a record could ruin her future, Ms. Dill explained, “I don’t see how my life would be more ruined than if I didn’t stick up for what I believe in.”

Lemonade Liberators October 4th Court Appearance: Did Not Go Well

1st and foremost Meg Mclain Will Duffield and I will need a very good liberty minded lawyer. Please if at all possible one that can work pro bono or at a discount. If anyone knows of one please please please let one of us know. To sum things up: things DID NOT go well today in court, and we are facing very severe charges given our crime as well as extended jail time. So here is what went down today. At 8:30 a.m. we had our first court appearance, and it was told to us that the charge "vending without a permit" was dismissed. Due to "failure to provide proper paperwork" by the Capitol police. In response to that they said that we could have the charge "esponged" from our record. This set up the first red flag that things would not go well today. Why should someone have to put forth effort to have "esponged" from their record a charge for a crime they were not convicted of. But since the charge of "vending without a permit" was dropped we assumed the other two charges would be dropped as well. Boy were we wrong.

At 10:30 a.m. we appeared in the federal court room to find that the charge of "vending without a permit" was only dismissed at the local level, and that The federal charge of "vending without a permit" or selling goods/begging as they put, was not removed at all at the federal level. Our name was called "the united states vs Kathryn Dill, Will Duffield, Meg Mclain" for us to appear before the judge and three men walked up infront of us claiming to be our lawyers. MEN WE HAD NEVER SEEN OR SPOKEN TO BEFORE IN OUR ENTIRE LIVES. We were legitimately confused because 1. we did not ask for lawyers 2. we did not tell these men our plea 3. we were under the impression our charge had been dropped (apparently that was only at the local level but everything against us still stands federally). The judge carried on and our lawyers told the judge our plea was "not guilty". Then the judge said that our conditions of release were the following:

1. We are banned from the US Capitol and its grounds. (Yes the US Capitol literally has a restraining order against me LOL )

2. we must submit to drug testing and if anything turns out positive must submit to weekly drug testing until trial

3. we must agree to appear before court on October 24th

Upon hearing that we must undergo drug testing as a condition of release, we "objected." Our case had absolutely NOTHING to do with drugs, even if it had, we are INNOCENT until proven guilty, where does the court get the authority to possess my urine, when i have been convicted of no crime! This is a gross violation of our 4th amendment right, the government cant just randomly drug test people without warrant. To this the judge took off her glasses started shaking her neck and screaming at us. She couldnt believe someone would object to her little "conditions" Then the judge told us to talk to our lawyers and come back after they had "talked some sense into us"....We were hustled out of the court room by our "lawyers" Apparently we had no choice in whether we had a lawyer or not, they were given to us by the court and mine SUCKED atleast Meg and Will's talked to them. Mine literally kept running away from me. Saying small mumbled sentences and then darting off. I finally caught up with Meg and Will and their lawyers so I could atleast find out what the hell was going on. We told them we felt like submitting to a drug test would be a violation of our constitutional and much more so BASIC HUMAN rights. We are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, why as an innocent person who is being charged with something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH DRUGS, do I have to submit my urine? - I think that was basically all our opinion, and we were notified by the lawyers that to fail to obey the conditions of release would put us in contempt of court, and make us liable to be held until our court date on October 24th up until our trial.

We re-entered the court room and our lawyers asked the judge if she could reconsider the restriction of us from the US capitol since it violates our right to our representatives and our right to redress grievances aka our free speech. They also asked that we not be required to take a drug test as a condition of release since the case has nothing to do with drugs. The judge went against our objections and overturned our requests. Our lawyers then told the judge that we understand what the consquences are and we still refuse to comply with conditions of release, and since our possible sentence is now a full year, they told the judge we demanded a trial by jury. Afterwords we were given papers to sign stating that we understand and agree to our conditions of release. Of course my flighty lawyer was nowhere to be found, and we were simply trying to READ what it was we were supposed to be signing. Apparently this was not ok to actually read something before signing it because the court aid snagged the papers out of Meg and I's hands for "taking too long" told us to "SHHHHHH" when we said we were reading it, and then scrabbled on "refused" where our signature was supposed to be. (which is fine by me because i was not signing that piece of garbage "terms of conditions" anyway. After appearing at the Pre-Trial services agency where we were given a review of our conditions, & told to appear in another room for drug testing. Instead we walked out of the courthouse.

We were reunited with Eddie Free after leaving the pretrial room and he told us the government prosecutor said "Just because they are white kids from suburbia doesnt mean they are above the law" In actuality it is HE who thinks he is "above the law" we were trying to get HIM to follow the rule of law (the consititution) and he said that our constitutional concerns were "not an issue"..HE is the one who thinks he is above the law! In addition to that, we were asked by the baliff to exit the courtroom while waiting for our case to be called. He said that we were talking too loud, and that it is putting the judge in a bad mood and that could effect our outcome....since when is "blind justice" liable to the whims of some moody woman's pms?

It is a racket! nothing more than another step to add in, and people just go along with it, and act as though it is perfectly normal that the government has a right to your urine when you have not even been convicted of a crime. The system knows probably half the people in the court room have some sort of drugs in their system and by adding on drug testing as a condition of release they know they can make money by adding on another charge, and by forcing that person to pay for whatever "drug testing" or "treatment" they must attend before court. Its all a racket, the law is SUPPOSED to protect our rights to protect our property, instead it steals our property through taxation, it violates our right to privacy at the point of a gun. It is absurd, it is violence, and I would rather die than submit to it.

In short, we face a maximum of 180 days (6 months) for each charge. The selling goods on capitol grounds as well as the new contempt of court charge for failing to allow our 4th amendment rights to be violated. I have been in contempt of court since 230pm when I failed to show up to my unconsitutional drug test that was a mandatory condition of my release. Our status hearing is October 24th at 9am in courtroom 314 500 indiana NW Washington DC, please please PLEASE if you can make it be there, and for our trial date (whenever that may be) we have to inform the jury of their rights and we honestly need all the support we can get, we are facing serious charges and more than likely jail time. Please let the prosecution know this is intolerable. We are peaceful people, we have commited NO CRIME, have NOT violated the consitution and are simply asking the court to follow the CONSTITUTIONAL RULE OF LAW. They do not have the right to make laws that go against our basic human rights as peaceful people. as Eddie asked them "How do you feel about persecuting peaceful people?"

Selling Lemonade in America: A Criminal Offense

On August 20th 2011, Will Duffield, Meg Mclain, and I were hand cuffed, kidnapped, loaded into a van, chained to a wall for hours, and taunted by armed men and women in blue uniforms for selling lemonade at 10 cents a cup on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

I knew there was a possibility of arrest for our action of free trade on the capitol lawn, but the physical implications of arrest were something I had not expected. I was initially handcuffed by what looked like a 6 foot 6 linebacker with metal cuffs. The officer held tight onto my hands and would not let me even wiggle my fingers. The officer immediately began taunting me, and tried to turn me against my friends by telling me “All your friends are using you as a pawn, they are walking around with video cameras and you 3 are the ones in handcuffs” to which I replied “Dont you dare try to turn me against my friends, YOU are the one that has me in handcuffs.” After several more baffling comments he realized his attempt of duping me into a state of Stockholm syndrome had failed. The three of us were loaded into the van that had no air conditioner. My hands were behind my back, I had no way to push my hair out of my eyes or wipe the sweat from my face.

Once we arrived at the station Will Duffield was taken into the station for processing, leaving Meg and I in the van with no flowing air or air conditioning, and no idea how long we would be in the van. I asked the officers to please loosen my cuffs because they were slicing into my skin. To this they mocked me and told me “You should have thought of that before you were arrested” They kept looking through the window at Meg and I laughing about how they were going to keep us in jail all weekend,and happily repeating “you have just ruined the rest of your lives” Next Meg was taken in for processing leaving me alone in the heat filled van for several additional minutes. Finally an officer came into the van, unfastened my seatbelt, and took me into the station, where I was placed on a hard wood bench while I waited to be processed. Again, I asked the officers repeatedly to loosen my cuffs. While sitting on a bench a female cop kept yelling at me from the other room mocking me with statements such as, “your parents must be so proud of you” telling me that I am a shame to my family, and that I have ruined my life. She gleefully said that she would gladly arrest people like me all day long.

Finally it was my turn to go through initial processing. All I could think about was getting the cuffs off my hands. The same female cop who had just mocked me was the one who did my initial processing. She asked me If i had any scars or tattoos to which I replied “only the scars from the handcuffs” Finally my handcuffs were removed to reveal deep red indentions in my skin, upon seeing this the officer said it was my fault because I didnt ask the officers to loosen my cuffs. WTH? She had me place my hands on a metal bar and began groping my entire body including my breasts and vagina. At this point I felt extremely violated, how did selling lemonade somehow make me deserving of physical molestation? How did it make me un deserving of basic human decency? The officer then made me take off all jewelery, I obliged but stopped when she told me to take off my ring. It was my grandmothers ring that I had worn every day of my life since the day my grandmother died when I was 10. I begged her to let me keep it on. I said “please just let me keep this ring on, it is my most prized possession, I never take it off, I don’t know what you are going to do with it.” This was the only point of the day where I became emotional, my eyes started brimming with tears. I explained to them I would not sell the ring for a million dollars, please just let me keep it on what will it hurt? To this she seemed joyous, and exclaimed “ I hope you are kidding” and “You should have thought of that before you were arrested” Again, as though I should have expected selling lemonade for 10 cents would make me un deserving of basic human decency. My ring was removed and I was taken into a a small square room and chained to a wall, where I would remain chained for the next 4 hours.

A series of officers came in and out of the room asking me various questions about myself, my family, and our “group”. The officers wanted to know my associations, where I was from and a series of other questions. An hour or so later an investigator came in and said they had been anticipating us. He told me he had been on the website, and had also been watching us on livestream even before we were arrested. The officers kept repeating “if you had just sold somewhere else, you could have sold lemonade all day long” or “if you just gave it away instead of charging, you wouldnt be here right now” or “if you had just gotten a permit, this could have all been avoided” Clearly they are incapable of grasping the point.

Do they think we needed the 10cents? Of course not, the very reason why we charged, was because it was “illegal” to sell. We were protesting an unjust law. People wonder why there is homelessness in America, why the unemployment rate is so high, It is because the simple act of buying and selling in America is a criminal offense. You have a God given right to barter, buy and sell, and take control of your own livelihood. If you get a permit, you are waiving your right and asking permission.Why would we ask permission for something that is a fundamental right? if you don't want to be slave, you have to assert your right. If something as simple as buying and selling is “legal” then why do we need a “permit” (permission) to do it?

As to the objection, we should have just “done it somewhere else” question is why? We were on public property. Property paid for with our own tax dollars. People say that if they allowed vending near the capitol then there would be tons of vendors all around the capitol, my response to that is “so what?” We had a huge line of thirsty people wanting lemonade, clearly people would like vendors near or on capitol grounds, thus adding to the enjoyment of tourists, and providing a livelihood for vendors. I am glad we did this on capitol grounds. It exposed in broad day light what happens in silence every day. Curious and excited children who want to be productive and learn the value of a dollar and the basics of entrepreneurship are told they are criminals, law breakers, and punished for their vision and imagination. I dont want to live in an America like that, I dont want to live where a child is told to go inside, that they can not make a difference in the world, that their ideas are “wrong” and to go back to playing video games. To this I say “No”. Good people disobey bad laws.

I was then told each Meg, Will, and I were being charged with 3 misdemeanors.

- Unlawful Conduct

- Failure to obey

- Vending without a permit

After the paperwork was filled out, I was placed in a room where pictures were taken from every side of my face, and each of my fingers were scanned into a system where they will remain for the rest of my life. After providing references and getting my thumbs printed onto my documents, I was told to wash my hands, my belongings (including my grandmother’s ring) were returned to me, and I was released from the building. Meg, Will, and I reunited outside of the police station, to find that a call launch was made by our friends demanding for our release. That a group had been standing outside of the police station for 45 minutes. I was overwhelmed with love and support. I couldnt believe there were so many people who cared about our well being. To everyone who called the station, and to all those who gave support and demanded our release, I say thank you, To be treated with such kindness and thoughtfulness was overwhelming.

Our court date is October 4th 2011, I hope as many of you as possible can come and show your support as Meg, Will, and I face our captors once again. Mostly I would like to thank Robert Fernandez who did not let the crushing of children’s dream happen without an uproar. Also each of the children who defied the police and purchased a cup of lemonade deserve to be commended. It was the children who were the most courageous. They had not yet been brainwashed to fear that which is not scary. Their instincts of natural rights had not yet been deluded. To me that is beautiful and inspirational. We should all hold on to those instincts and inherent rights and assert ourselves as free people, just as those children did on August 20th 2011 as shown below.

As for the cops who said I am a shame to my family, last night I got a call from my father, after I said hello, he goes “Well, I just saw you on the news..” ...I held my breath as I anticipated a long lecture about the long term implications of my actions, but instead after the pause my father replied “I’m proud of you”.

Quotes I like

"Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the
place where no one else has ever been. You have to
leave the city of your comfort and go into the
wilderness of your intuition. You can't get there by
bus, only by hard work, risking, and by not quite
knowing what you're doing. What you'll discover will be
wonderful: yourself."
--Alan Alda

“Music expresses that which can not be said and on which it is impossible to be silent” - Victor Hugo

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. "

"When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen: there will be something solid for you to stand upon, or, you will be taught how to fly"
— Patrick Overton
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right forget those who don't. And believe that EVERYTHING happens for a reason. If you get the chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

""The woman came out of a man's rib. Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior, But from the side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected, and next to the heart to be loved"

""Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, cause hate in your heart will consume you too. " Will Smith

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference"

"If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve." - Lao Tzu

"There will come a time when you lose everything and believe everything is finished - That will be the beginning."

The Death Of Osama Bin Laden

I viewed the recent announcement of Osama Bin Laden’s death with solemn sobriety. First and foremost I do not believe Osama Bin Laden was killed this past Sunday. I believe he died years ago. Our government needed the public to believe Osama Bin Laden was alive as a way to perpetuate fear and generate support for war. Then at an expedient time our government decided to announce his death: right before Obama’s re-election campaign and as support for the endless unjustifiable wars in the middle east was waning. His “death” was used to legitimize ten years of terror committed by the United States military in the Middle East.

Here is a BBC report of Benazir Bhutto who was murdered shortly after revealing what I believe to be the actual death of Osama Bin Laden. Link here:

Russia today did a story on the links of Osama Bin Laden to western intelligence. Link here:

Infowars provides evidence of the “Osama Bin Laden Hoax”. Link here:

However the point is not whether Osama Bin Laden died this past Sunday. The point is what does this mean for our country? Like the character Emmanuel Goldstein from Orwell's prophetic book "1984", Osama is to be viewed as the perpetual enemy of the people. The man we must give up our liberties because of; the man who is a danger to us all. While Osama Bin Laden is of course a real person and not a fictional character, our government has turned him into more of an idea than a man. He is an enigma; he is the face of terror, a universal boogie man we are to all fear as we go to sleep at night.

Over one million Iraqis have been killed in our “war on terror” (90% civilians), $1188263000000 has been spent in the middle east, money that we DO NOT HAVE. We have destroyed our reputation worldwide and created more enemies and potential threats to our nation. In response to the death of 3,000 Americans on 9/11, we have allowed our government to kill over one million Iraqis, thousands of our own troops, and strip away our freedoms. Does this even make sense?

Since September 11th 2001, we have allowed our government to strip away our rights piece by piece from sexual assault and molestation as protocol by TSA at airports, to the enactment of the patriot act which is a heinous violation of our right to privacy. We have given up all these rights in the name of “security” against terror. We are told to fear Osama Bin Laden, his spread of death and his spread of “Sharia law”. We are told to fear Osama because he represents a threat to our “freedom and liberty." Yet it is our own government stripping away our freedoms here at home, with our consent; it is our military spreading death.

See link to Collateral murder video here, of what our military views as legitimate warfare:

Link of video ending with a speech by Dr. Dahlia Wasfi about the horrors of life in Iraq under US occupation

Could you imagine how infuriated we would be if another country tried to occupy our land and tell us how to live? Can you imagine our outrage if even ONE of these civilian deaths, or rapes had happened on our own soil?

We have rejected the just war theory of Christianity, we have forgotten to do unto others as we would have them do unto us. The occupation, the terror, and the death that the United States has spread to countless countries in OUR NAME will come back upon us. It is our solemn duty to speak out against these atrocities because they have been committed in our name, and how dare anyone criticize war resisters for speaking out against these crimes against humanity.

What has the supposed death of Osama Bin Laden accomplished? Are we any safer as a nation because of it? No. Mainstream articles already predict blowback from the announcement of Osama’s death. There is legitimate concern of another attack on our soil, be it from an outside threat from one of the multiple enemies we have obtained due to our heinous foreign policy or via a “false flag operation.” See link here:

It is all too easy for our government to stage an attack on American soil, via a “false flag operation” in order to increase security (which gains money for the security companies) and as a way to garner support for more war, (which profits the war profiteers such as Halliburton) This may sound far fetched because it is a topic so untouched by the mainstream media, but the very real threat of false flag terror is something we see over and over again throughout history, be it Hitler’s attack on Reichstag to gain support for war in 1933, or the 1917 sinking of the Lusitania. Link here:

The formula is summed up in the following statement by Herman Goering:

"Why, of course, the people don't want war... But it is always a simple matter to drag the people along... That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."- Herman Goering

War profiteers care nothing about human life, they care nothing about the death of those overseas or the death of our own soildiers. Halliburton's only concern is to make a profit, meanwhile they are poisoning US troop's water supply, and exposing them to dangerous contamination. (link here)

While anti-war protestors are given the label of “hating the troops”, such a claim has no foundation other than demagoguery. it is actually the ruling class, those who profit from war that hate our troops.

Henry Kissinger himself claimed “Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” Do you honestly think he is looking out for the best interest of those who serve in our military? Do you think such a disgusting person actually values human life at all?

You do not maintain liberty through perpetuation of war. The restoration of liberty will not occur with the killing of an outside enemy. The answer lies within us, the American people. We can not be free until we prove we are above manipulation. The wars will not end, the stripping of liberties will not end, the death of millions overseas will not end, until The American people wake up and realize you maintain liberty by protecting those liberties, not by giving them up in the name of protection.

The Mistake

If only there was an escape. The suffering is ceaseless,it is long,it is merciless, it taunts you with the hope of escape...The escape is a mirage.You know it is not real. Yet, like a caged dog to an open door, you go after it...instinctively, because it is the only thing that can keep you alive. The hope the chance,the bright light to save you from chaos.

It is an illusion. it taunts you, it mocks you. It shows you what never was and what never will be.

How long can one mistake haunt you. How long can the same thought turn over and over in a person's mind. What I would not give to escape....if for just one year, one week one day. To breathe just one full breath. To go back to how it was before.... and change everything.

The isolation made unbearable by the burden. The burden made unbearable by the isolation, yet it continues. It is my battle to fight alone. Amidst a world that will never understand. It is the bed I have made, and now I am left to lie in it.

To never feel comfort in my own skin, to know something is wrong, and I am the one who did it to myself. To never be at rest, to never fully breathe. To never be fully present or alive. It never stops. If only there were an escape, I dream I dream... one year, one month, one day...if only.

Optimists Are...

People often tell the optimist that they should be a pessimist or a realist because bad things will inevitably happen to them and they will only get disappointed in life by expecting the best. I disagree.

Indeed bad things do happen to the optimist. They get disappointed, rejected, disgusted, and devastated. The only difference between the optimist and the pessimist is that unfortunate circumstances do not cause the optimist to give up on expecting great things out of life. The optimist does not act like they do not believe good things will happen to them because they DO believe good things will happen to them. The optimist does not say there is no way they can make a difference in the world because they DO believe they can make a difference in the world. The optimist believes they can change a person’s life for all eternity.

So no, Mr. Pessismist and No, Mr. “Don’t have expectations” It is you who are wrong. Many of the optimist’s dreams never come true, many of their goals are never achieved, but many of their goals ARE achieved. Many of the optimist’s dreams ARE made manifest, and it is only because the optimist had the courage to dream them. The ones who despite everything are still crazy enough to believe they can love deeply, and change the world are the only ones who do. The optimist does get hurt, but the optimist is strong enough, competent enough, and brave enough to deal with those disappointments when they come, and unlike the pessimist they do not let the bad in life stop them from achieving, hoping, working toward, and believing in great things.

Days are to be lived alone
A Phoenix flying on her own
All emotions left my eyes
through the heavens, I will fly

You could cross seven seas
yet from you I would turn to flee
Your plans are sure to go ary
for Like a Phoenix, I will fly

Forget the sugar and the spice
Ive become the Queen of Ice
Though your words may flow like art
Nothing will ever melt my heart
To not want or not care
is to feel as light as air

All I wanted was to be loved
wrapped in your embracing hug
My dream of this has been denied
what one cant have, theyd best despise.
No more weak to loves highs
like a phoenix, I will fly

My heart has turned to ice so fierce
My heart you will never pierce
The world is mine to call my own
Escape from all the pain Ive known
To know charm is to know lies
I prefer open skies

I rise from ashes of shattered dreams
Things are never as they seem
A survivor, yes. But Unscathed no
This pain I wish Id never known

My heart first frozen and then closed
dreams of love have been disposed
If all is fair in love and war
I do not want love any more

The pain of love is akin
to sharpend blades piercing skin
never again will I try
To be alone, is to not cry
Like a Phoenix I will fly

The Me I Wish to See

Better than I was yesterday
Yesterday better than before.

Keep growing, keep reaching
I grow stronger and braver
My knowledge constantly expanding
My possibilities abounding
Each day another open door.

Today is the best me there ever was
From now on each day a new me will rise
Better than the me before

I will not wonder who I could have been
Or what I should have done before
I will not let past regrets consume me anymore.

When it is finished, When my course is done
It will be the me I wish to see
Reflected in the mirror that hangs upon my door.

Property of the State....Who Cares!?!?

My drivers license has officially been suspended. This is due to about 3 years worth of accumulated statist garbage tickets that I have failed to legitimize by paying (I will pay it soon and my drivers license should be restored shortly). Who does the state think they are to tell me whether I can or can not drive? Im the one that pays taxes to build the road I drive on. And why do I have to register my car with the state? I hate this, I hate slavery: This is slavery. It is my road that I pay for, so long as I am not violating someone else’s personal space I should be able to drive however I want to. People are so stupid they accept and LOVE their servitude, we are supposed to THANK the police officers as they write us tickets, we are supposed to THANK the state as they steal money from our pay check.

If I have to register my car with the state of Virginia simply to drive it, then it is NOT MY CAR. I simply paid a fellow slave $600 worth of federal reserve notes in order to buy my chevy lumina, but I don’t actually own it. If I were to choose not to pay the registration fee, I would be locked in a cage like an animal. Why would I register something with the state of Virginia if I owned it? If I have to register my car with the state of Virginia, then Virginia owns my car. Virginia is just gracious enough to let me use it, so I can drive to work, in order to provide the state with 25% of my paycheck so they can pay for the pad the police officer uses to write me tickets on. We are paying people to steal our money.

Why does no one seem to care? Why does no one stand for principle? why does no one care about the freedom, liberty, and justice this country was founded on!? This country is filled with a bunch of fat slobs too preoccupied with sex and beer to care about anything like righteousness, like freedom…who cares about these things when we can watch the real housewives of orange county?

And if you say anything even remotely intelligent or blatantly obvious, your fellow slaves are trained to call you “negative” or ”judgmental” Who cares that money is taken from my paycheck every month so that my government can fund a military machine that blows up brown people over seas and harasses people who are simply trying to get from point A to point B on the road!? hehe no biggie!

HA and what is HILARIOUS. Is that I am often told to “get a life” by pseudo intellectual losers who have never left their home town or read an actual book ( and no twilight & Harry Potter don’t count) yes, these are the people telling ME to get a life! I lead one of the most exciting and interesting lives I know of. And some reality tv obsessed loser with a car filled with mcdonalds hamburger wrappers is telling ME to get a life!?! MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE DYING overseas, we are being robbed and our currency is about to reach the value of toilet paper. Do you not realize these are the things you are SUPPOSED to care about, NOT a mosque, NOT kardasian sluts, NOT twilight.

The sheep Just keep popping their Prozac, and drinking their fluoridated water and pretend like everything is ok. if something doesn’t affect their life directly they just don’t care, As long as THEY don’t lose their job, as long as THEY can still pay the bills, as long as THEIR family members are not unjustly killed in a war, then they don’t care. A selfish narcissistic society is one that cares the least about the death and destruction that happens to others. How backwards is our society when the ones who love others enough to care are the ones called “hateful” just go back to sleep.


The ENDA Freedom Bill

Last week I overheard as two men discussed the ENDA bill (Employment Non Discrimination Act) and how it is necessary because certain states have instituted laws that GASP ... allow employers to hire and fire who they want to.

In certain states employers are allowed to not hire someone based on their sexual orientation. EX: if a cross dresser comes in to apply for a daycare position, the employer has the right not to hire them because they feel it is inappropriate to hire a cross dresser to care for children, and it could negatively affect business. ( I certainly wouldn’t send my kids there)

The men's argument for the bill went something like this:

“states are passing laws to allow businesses to discriminate against gays, and since that is so against what our country was founded upon the federal government feels as though it has to intervene. we cant support discrimination blah blah blah.”

Lets break this down:

1) So this country was founded upon FORCING employers to hire homosexuals??? wth?

Ii thought it was founded upon freedom, wouldn’t allowing employers to hire and fire who they please be an expression of freedom?? not only that, but most states during and after our founding years had life imprisonment &/or death penalties for sodomy and these laws were supported by our founding fathers.

I don’t exactly call that "gay friendly" our country was founded on many things.... but i cant seem to find the words "give all homosexuals jobs" anywhere in the constitution. You can give your reasons for or against gay rights, but I’d stay away from the argument "this is what our country was founded on" because if you are “pro gay” you definitely don’t want us going there.

2) Why can’t we support discrimination? ok i get that gay people can’t resist their "feelings" This is no different than stupid people who can’t help being stupid. Does this mean we should hire morons as brain surgeons for the sake of "equal rights"?.... or should we use a little discrimination and decide against that? Most people have set personalities, yet we dont have laws saying we arent allowed to discriminate against hiring unpleasant or boring people. (they cant help it they are boring)

Our founding documents grant us "life liberty and the pursuit of happiness", not the guarantee of happiness, and if being "homosexual" prevents someone from getting a certain type of job, then that’s no different than someone who was born with a low IQ having certain limitations on their job options. Gay people earn more than almost any other demographic, i am sure they can find a nice gay friendly job somewhere else.

If you have a conservative business and all your other employees are straight males with traditional values, a gay person would make everyone on the job uncomfortable. Wouldn’t it be best for the employer to hire someone who fits their company better?? I see nothing wrong with discrimination in this context. That is like telling someone they HAVE to let someone in their home they do not want in their home. It is their home and they have a right to say who goes in there or not. It is their business; they have a right to say who works there or not.

I am not trying to make comparisons between gays and other minority groups... but even if someone chose not to hire someone because of their skin color or gender I think that should be allowed,

ex 1: a woman wants to start her own company and hire an all female staff... are you saying shes not allowed to do that???

ex2: A latino organization wants to bring on a new staff person as their spokesperson, are you saying they dont have the right to give preference to a fellow latino??

I am NOT saying I think that would be right or good for them to do so, I personally believe "all white" or "all latino" or "all black" groups are pointless and counterproductive, but it is THEIR RIGHT.

3) Doesnt our constitution support states rights? This is no business of the federal government whatsoever.

Just look at the idiotic arguments for this bill. It says this is not about “gay rights” but about “universal rights” because if a heterosexual was not hired at a gay bar because of their heterosexuality they could sue too!! < I am not joking. That is a literal argument for this bill.
