One Small Voice. A Lot of Big Ideas. Let Freedom Ring!


 America is the only nation on Earth that purports personal  liberty as one of it’s cornerstones. Yet with each passing decade, our personal freedoms are vanishing with increasing velocity. Our government shoulders much of the blame, but since we the people are the government (which is actually becoming more theoritical than factual) every American who stands silently on the sidelines, not questioning the constiutionality of laws and regulations, shares in the blame for our eroding liberties.

Since freedom  is woven into the fabric of every American experience–from the family, to schools, to the workplace–Freedom, by the way  address all aspects of American life. It is a celebration of personal freedom, a mourning of the loss already sustained, and a wake-up call to new attacks on liberty.

    I was reading your post about the Yuma & Union County refineries. You noted that green energy is not ready to replace fossil fuels? What the hell are fossil fuels? I have some fossils in my barn. The don’t burn very well. Oil and natural gas are hydrocarbons produced by the geologic forces within the Earth. Coal is a blend of oil and biomatter compressed under the massive weight of the deluge. There ain’t no such thing as fossil fuels. Was that the remains of dead dinosaurs and dead dinosaur food pouring from the Gulf floor for four months? Or was it hydrocarbons gushing up from an oil basin under tremendous pressure, and being constantly refilled by even deeper pressures working on the carbon outer core of the Earth. Get a clue or just go all in and become a leftist.

    Jericho: We are both correct in our defintions.The term “fossil fuel” is used to describe oil, coal and natural gas. See the American Heritage Dictionary definition below:

    fossil fuel
    A hydrocarbon deposit, such as petroleum, coal, or natural gas, derived from living matter of a previous geologic time and used for fuel.

    You have obviously not spent much time reading my blog or you would know that your last line is a LOL.

    My name is Wes Faull of We The People Will Not Be Chipped. I hope this finds you well. I thank you for your help in promoting One Mainframe To Rule Them All when it was released, and I am emailing to ask for your help promoting our follow up feature Predictive Programming and the Human Microchipping Agenda. I need all the help I can get.  Any help is GREATLY appreciated!  Posting on websites, writing reviews, re-posting in social networks etc…Anything. This film is important because it exposes the plan of getting the world to accept the idea of human microchip implantation via predictive programming through media. 

    Thanks for all that you are doing to fight this agenda and everything else that you do, you have a huge impact and are making a difference. Keep up the good work!! And thanks for anything you will do to assist me in getting this film out to the masses.

      Wes: I am more than happy to help spread the word. This is an excellent video and this topic is near (alothough not dear) to my heart. I have always been not only a proponent of indiviual liberty but horrified of the thought of the chip/Mark of the Beast, since seeing the film “A Thief in the Night” when I was about 12. Thanks for all of your work.

    This country wasn’t built on freedom, it was built by a bunch of tight fisted merchants. They settled this country by overwhelming indigenous peoples, & bringing slaves (with no freedom) to enrich themselves.

    Obama has a minor part in the sham to which you refer. Big oil has stymied refinery constructioon in concert with politicins they control. It is cheaper to produce & sell all over the world,rather than produce in the U.S. 35 years of no new refineries has been the mantra of big oil….they made millions more in profit doing it that way. It is a simple concept of capitalism…..once you gain control of a comodity, you can conduct business with impunity. The warming planet is testement to their actions.

    • Freedom, by the way
      April 12, 2012

      Dick, tight-fisted merchants, perhpas, but not by themselves. It was also built on peoples seeking religious freedom, peoples seeking the opportunity to own their own land and property, people seeking new riches and adventure in a new country. Slavery is a bitter stain on America’s history, and it is a dark history that we share, unfortunately, with many nations. Much of the world was built on the backs of enslaved peoples. I doubt any one of us could not trace slavery in our ancestory if we were able to trace back far enough.
      We are a nation rich in resources including oil, coal and natural gas. Many of those resources lie on federal or state-owned land (the fact that such a high percentage of our land mass is controlled by the government is another issue). But by opening up those lands to extract resources, we could be filling the coffers of our treasury smf lower the tax burden on AMericans. Instead, the Obama administration has declarred a war on coal through new EPA regulations which many, many power plants depend upon to provide cheap electricity. Consumers are going to be screaming very soon when their electric rates go sky-high (as Obama promised by saying that electric rates would necessarily go higher). That’s taking the Green movement way beyond sensible measures. So you believe the extraction of natural resources is a cause of global warming aka climate change? I disagree as do many experts. Sorry, mankind is just not that important or powerful. The Green movement, with the global warming as its centerpiece is nothing more than an excuse for global socalist control of our natural nesurces, property and money.

      Thank you for stopping by. I invite you to read more of my posts and visit some blogs in my Links to Freedom blogroll.

    At least we agree about the designation of “merchants”. Freedom of religion in America was OK as long as you were the correct religion. i. e. christian (preferably WASP); It took almost 200 years to elect a catholic.

    As far as resource wealth is concerned, a few other contenents are vastly more endowed then us. They lacked the economic system availed by you & I, which utilized basic instincts such as greed, etc, to push aside the idea of community. Our form of government was founded on the principle of community, not capitalism. The goverment is not the enemy.

    Left unchecked, the greed of a few have led our freedom down the primrose path to future extinction. This point is not necessarily mine, but from prominent scientist on both sides of the political spectrum. Continued reliance on oil, coal, and natural gas is similar to lead based paints of the past. Job creation dosen’t justify killing my grandchildren.

    Anyone knows, or should know, that all lands in the U.S. are the property of the government. The Louisiana Purchase is an example of how land in this country was obtained (by conflict). They are responsible for the defense of U.S. property, and can take complete control of property & production if required
    Mineral rights are part of the ownership and need to be guarded for the benefit of community, not “Wall Street”. Wall Street ubnderstands this principle, and has throughout history sought deregulation of government controll. As is shown by the deregulation of the financial markets, the communities throughout the world have paid a huge price. This is not the case for business. They made billions by creating trillions of dollars of debt they knew the public would pick up. They forced the Gov to employ those they terminated.

    Business has made the adjustments to the top line, i.e, laid off the community, in order to protext the bottom line. The community, i.e., working stiff has no prospect of doing anything remotely similar. It is impossible for a business to not show improvemnt from the 2008-9 economic collapse.

    The phony economy created at the end of the Clinton Administration, and embraced during the Bush Administration has put this government, and others at risk of collapse. Wall Street promoted, and convinced politicians to deregulate banking to the detriment of the community. As in the 1930s, the community has been called on to save them……it is such a shame, such a sham!

    Hi, thanks for stopping by I got lots to learn from you about post headlines. The one I saw right out was, “President Obama’s Illegal Amnesty for Illegal Aliens.” That’s a great headline.

    Freedom…Now that’s a word that will never be lost on the Patriots of this country. It is a fighting word, a fight for the God-given rights of all Americans. I find it heartwarming that there are more of us each and every day—as big government grows in numbers, We, The People, grow in numbers as well. We are of like mind, Freedom. I like what you write so I added your Blog on my “QueenBeeWorld” site under “The Buzz In QueenBeeWorld’s Hive”. There is strength in numbers…
