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.

Minutemen are Still Having An Affect

Associated Press reports that there is a shortage of strawberry pickers in Oregon.
Traditional seasonal workers from south of the border have not shown up this year, said Daniel Quiones, the migrant seasonal farm workers representative from the Oregon Employment Department.

Quiones attributed workers' insecurity to the Minuteman Project, which involved civilian volunteers who patroled the U.S.-Mexico border this spring by ground and air, looking for illegal immigrants.
It's about time the agricultural community got a taste of not being able to ILLEGALLY hire ILLEGAL aliens who entered this country ILLEGALLY! I've often said that we need to pair border enforcement with penalties against employing people who do not have the legal right to work (in fact this is one of my few non-libertarian views).
Independent labor contractor Arnulfo Sandoval Perez told The Statesman-Journal of Salem that some strawberry farmers are losing $10,000 per day.
Let this be a warning to every industry that has complacently ignored our Federal labor laws and encouraged illegal immigration to this country in order to avoid paying fair wages. This will simply happen more and more as our nation takes back control of its borders. Thus, it's time for them to evaluate their production methods and cost of goods in order to factor in employing legal workers. If that doesn't appeal to employers and growers, they can always use innovation and technology to create a more efficient way to produce their products using less laborers.

Thank you Minutemen for making a difference!
