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.

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.

Book 10 in the Sword of Truth series continues to keep the reader riveted while repeatedly emphasizing the duty and importance of self defense.

Time to Sue the ACLU

There's been a big stink about Bryan Barton, the Minuteman that supposedly captured and forcibly detained an illegal alien. According to the ACLU:
The men physically restrained a 26-year-old Mexican man and forced him to hold a shirt while his picture was taken and he was videotaped. The shirt read: "Bryan Barton caught an illegal alien and all I got was this T-shirt."
Unfortunately for the ACLU, who would like nothing more than to catch a Minuteman doing something evil, the entire event was caught on video tape. A Washington Times article explained:
Mr. Barton provided the tape prosecutors used to review the incident. The tape also was reviewed by the sheriff's department, Mexican Consul Miguel Escobar and the U.S. Border Patrol.
He [Barton] said they approached him to see if he was all right and gave him "Wheaties, a granola bar, water" and $20 before calling the U.S. Border Patrol.

"He thanked us about a dozen times," and didn't complain until after he was in custody [of the U.S. Border patrol], said Mr. Barton"
Given that the ACLU is so fond of suing those they disagree with, I think it would serve them right if Barton to sues them for libel and slander and forces them to make a retraction. Since Mr. Barton is an aspiring congressman, he could easily make a case that these false accusations are damaging to his future. This is yet another example of how these people use accusations to harm people, but show no remorse when they are proven wrong. As of yet, I have not been able to find a retraction, apology or any attempt by the ACLU to set the record straight.
