Fireworks: Taxpayer Money, Up in Smoke posted 07/03/2011, 10:54 PM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Commentary]
Is it wrong that all I can see while watching the firework shows is taxpayer money going up in smoke?

As much as I enjoy fireworks, I can't help but find it angering the way the 4th of July is nothing more than some hollowed out, almost sarcastic joke of a celebration. The whole tradition of celebrating freedom in America has turned into the government taking our taxpayer money and burning it in a spectacular show of largess on the taxpayer's dime.

Meanwhile, Joe Citizen in most states is not even allowed to buy fireworks himself! The very symbol of the celebration of his freedom has been banned by the very same government which uses our tax money to put on elaborate fireworks shows to tell us how great our freedoms are!

As with all things government, it's only fine if they do it. They are above the law and us commoners need to know our place and bow down before their arbitrary dictates.

What a wonderfully free country.

If you dare to skirt the law and set off your own fireworks you have the tax feeders in costume trawling around town for some poor sap to jail.

Some land of the free!

I'll celebrate our freedoms when we are actually free. I'll celebrate when the major fireworks shows are put on by private citizens and private companies which exist on voluntary trade and symbolize freedom, as opposed to some parasite government which traffics in stolen goods.

America is dead, the government killed it.

Maybe over the next few years the American people will finally say they've had enough and throw this parasite government off the same as the American revolutionaries did the British.

I wrote this article last year, I still feel the same way. I must say though, I've been enjoying watching some rogue criminals set off fireworks on the beach here behind our place and I find it quite enjoyable. That is the real 'spirit of 1776,' not tax fattened functionaries burning tax money in celebration of our glorious empire. - Chris

The Grand Holiday posted 07/03/2011, 10:53 PM (
[Category: Commentary]
It is very unfortunate that the grandest holiday of all, the Fourth of July, comes but once a year. This glorious day, infused with American exceptionalism and the power of pride, is more exhilarating than sex for most patriotic Americans. Independence Day is the one day when ordinary folk can declare their independence from individualism and embrace the collective worship of the all-powerful government.

The Fourth of July is not merely a day off from earning taxable income. It is

After more than two centuries of "constitutionally limited government," the results are clear and incontrovertible. At the outset of the American "experiment," the tax burden imposed

Igan Interview:

Brit Interview:
This is a good video responding to Charlie Veitch's 'conversion' from truther to official fairy tale true believer. Apparently, he is taking part in some show for the BBC where he met a bunch of government 'experts' and they 'like totally' convinced him 9/11 happened exactly as the regime described! Now he rejects the 'religious dogma' that is questioning the government's bullsh*t! This guy is a weak minded idiot. On the bright side, this is a great rebuttal. - Chris, InfoLib

Microsoft admits Patriot Act can access EU-based cloud data posted 07/03/2011, 10:53 PM (ZDNet)

LONDON — At the Office 365 launch, Gordon Frazer, managing director of Microsoft UK, gave the first admission that cloud data — regardless of where it is in the world — is not protected against the USA PATRIOT Act.

It was honestly music to my ears. After a year of researching the Patriot Act’s breadth and ability to access data held within protected EU boundaries, Microsoft finally and openly admitted it.

The question put forward:

The Topsy-Turvy Liberal View of Taxation posted 07/03/2011, 10:45 PM (Anthony Gregory)
[Category: Commentary]
Obama insists that the United States can’t afford to maintain corporate tax cuts. As with all modern liberals, when he says the U.S. can’t afford it, he means the government can’t afford it without cutting spending. With nearly four trillion dollars of expenditures a year, I suppose it’s very understandable that the president, as most of his ideological ilk, view tax cuts -- sign... (more)

NY motorcyclist dies on ride protesting helmet law posted 07/03/2011, 10:44 PM (Associated Press)
[Category: General]
ONONDAGA, N.Y. (AP) -- Police say a motorcyclist participating in a protest ride against helmet laws in upstate New York died after he flipped over the bike's handlebars and hit his head on the pavement.
Idiot socialists are having a heyday over this story. If the government mandated "safety" in every aspect of our lives, we'd all be living in jail cells and forbidden from doing anything. The funny thing about this story is if the government didn't prohibit not wearing helmets, it's entirely possible he would have been wearing one during this crash, so to act like this is some celebration for the glories and values of statism is entirely backwards. - Chris

Willie King, 66, was standing on his neighbor's property in the 3900 block of North Whittier Place as he recorded officers arresting a man on Feb. 18.

Yesterday Beau Davis was held in “contempt” for not removing his hat when ordered by a stranger named Ed Burke in Keene district court. He was told that he’d spend the next five days in a cage.
