Hype or a Real Concern?

OK, so this country keeps getting weirder and weirder and more dictatorial all the time. They really are here, it just isn’t rumor any more.   This recently received from a friend. Right here in western Colorado: So, as I was about to park, I saw this vehicle, so I quickly got out of my car and took a picture as it drove by.  As the driver saw me do this, he slammed on the brakes, and asked, “Do you have a problem?”  To which I replied, “Just taking a picture.

Why Politics Fails

Why Politics FailsPosted: 11 Nov 2013 12:19 PM PSTNothing will change until we confront the real sources of power.

El Dorado County Sheriff Strips Forest Service Of State-Law Enforcement Power...
