Ponder This:

Real public servants are free enterprising individuals who, inspired, embrace challenge, take risks, and create, sometimes big, and often, they create jobs in the process, all out of their ideas, and self initiative...

What's the Flat Tax? Is it even possible? Join me and my guest, John Hanson, Saturday, May 2nd at 11 AM PT

Join me on the air, Saturday at 11 AM PST

CRN Channel 5 (On the Internet)

Call in number for the program: 831-633-1460

This Saturday,

If you’re out on the campaign trail these days, it’s hard to miss the sea of professionals who live on the dole, under the guise of being non profits and or government employees or public employee union officials or employees of massive corporations with “Private-Public Partnerships” that are heavily subsidized by our tax dollars. In these public meeting events, it’s difficult to make your way around a room, to talk to individuals without repeatedly coming face to face with this privileged class of person, if you talk about your spirit and drive and motivation for liberty and strength to the middle class, the entrepreneurs, the free market, and capitalism, all of a sudden, smiles disappear, and you get pinched face stares and glares, and suddenly awkward moments of silence, or smarmy criticism inferring I am callous, insensitive and selfish.

It’s easy to become discouraged, and to feel it’s a tide so big, it’s hopeless to try to stem it, and so that’s why I’m here. Buck up and join me. Freedom rocks!

This Saturday, May 02, 2009, I’m joined by John Hanson, publisher of ZAP the IRS, RepealIncomeTax.com and the National Day of Mourning, on July 12, 2009, to mourn the day, in unity, when the 16th Amendment became law, and the road to serfdom in the U.S. was set in motion.
Join us for hot talk Saturday at 11 AM, PT

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"

"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko.

Death of an innocent. Death or injury of a police officer. Death of a nonviolent offender.
Raid on an innocent suspect. Other examples of paramilitary police excess. Unnecessary raids on doctors and sick people.
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night. But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
