An expression of personal freedom designed to educate people about the meaning and importance of freedom and personal responsibility. Topics will include current events, historical analysis, gun control and firearms rights, education, politics and more. I write in support of freedom lest darkness fall upon our society in the form of dwindling rights, apathy and oppression.
I am a neolibertarian minded individual who feels that freedom and individual rights take precedence over the wants of government. I believe government exists to serve the people and not to protect us from ourselves. I am an advocate for private firearms ownership, smaller government, reduced taxes and freedom to live your life however you choose, providing you do not directly hurt others.

If you enjoy reading, you really must get one of these. I carry mine with me all of the time and read at least 5 books per month on it.
Books I Am Reading
A Feast For Crows This latest installment of Gearge R. R. Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series isn't quite as gripping as the previous books but is still a pretty good read.
Phantom Book 10 in the Sword of Truth series continues to keep the reader riveted while repeatedly emphasizing the duty and importance of self defense.
Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed A follow up to Guns, Germs, and Steel that explains the geographic, environmental and socio-economic reasons that can cause civilizations and communities to collapse.
A Virginia judge has sentenced spammer Jeremy Jaynes to nine years in prison for sending over 10 million e-mails a day with the aid of 16 broadband lines.
Unfoturnately, the judge wasn't quite bold enough:
Because the case marks the first felony prosecution for spam, however, Judge Thomas Horne postponed the sentence while the ruling is appealed.
I don't understand why the sentence was postponed until the appeal, even if it is the first felony conviction for this crime. Isn't it more common to let convicted felons make their appeals while serving their sentence? I hope this doesn't mean that the jerk never ends up behind bars. With all of the money he was making, he can probably afford an army of lawyers. Given the many recent failures of our judicial system, he might very well find a way to wriggle off the hook.
Jaynes was accused of grossing up to $750,000 per month with his unsolicited junk e-mail.
