"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
                                             -- George Washington

"If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have: no federal meddling in our schools; no Federal Reserve; no U.S. membership in the UN; no gun control; and no foreign aid.

We would have no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor"; no American troops in 100 foreign countries; no NAFTA, GATT, or "fast-track"; no arrogant federal judges usurping states rights; no attacks on private property; no income tax. We could get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget."

Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom by Dr. Ron Paul

"Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons."
                                             -- Congressman Ron Paul

End the Fed by Dr. Ron Paul

"The government is best which governs least."
                                                       -- Thomas Jefferson

Some Preppers like to think or even fantasize about going it alone when the world collapses. They may envision a cabin hundreds of miles from civilization with enough provisions to sustain them for years.

Most people realize that other humans can be a threat during any crisis. However, not everyone will be a threat. Even today, in the absence of a crisis humans cause most of the problems in the world. While some people will be a threat, many more will be a burden because they failed to prepare. Then a smaller percentage will become saviors because of their knowledge, skills and their willingness to share what they know with others.

Threading elements of the great educational experiments of Bauhaus and Roycroft Community models together with Pierre Levy's modern definition of "collective intelligence," La Scuola Open Source (The Open Source School) embodies the principles...

In the early part of the last century, as a result of the social and economic changes produced by the industrial revolution, an architect named Walter Gropius conceived a school in Germany aimed at creating new professionals to provide an answer to the demand of innovation generated by the changes in time. That school was Bauhaus - a place that would become a legend. It was born from the union of an art academy, a technical college and a faculty of architecture. Within a few years, combining skills and working on real projects with the help of many internationally renowned experts, a pedagogical experiment of historic proportions was born.

It's the season to beat the heat and head to the high country. With the allure of cool mountain streams and breezes, hikes through the high country, the taste of food that only comes from cooking it on a grill outdoors.

Taking the much-needed break that a trip to the campground offers does take a bit of planning, especially since camping requires everything to be packed in and out and the fact that you and your family won't have access to modern conveniences. But that's the point of a camping trip, right?

Jacee Vallelunga, 7, stood with her friend, Mary McCrory, 6, outside her family's Leisure Pines home Thursday morning watching as a hazard-tree specialist across the narrow street was hoisted 100 feet in the air by a 200-ton crane.

Vallelunga's mother, Melissa, was standing next to the girls using her cell phone to film the scene as the specialist fired up his chainsaw and began cutting into the trunk of a 120-foot-tall pine tree that's brown hue stood out from the green ones around it. The pine was one of more than 750 that have died in the Leisure Pines neighborhood off Highway 108, east of Twain Harte. At least 29 million trees are believed to be dead throughout the Sierra Nevada, a result of a bark beetle epidemic made worse by four consecutive years of drought.

If anyone needs a reminder on the absurdity of the U.S. approach to drugs, consider the fact that cannabis is classified as a Schedule 1 drug with "no currently accepted medical use" and a "high potential for abuse."

Still, alcohol is left to the states to regulate, untouched by the fateful 1970 CSA that began Nixon's War on Drugs and spawned the DEA. As we have reported, this war against freedom was targeted at blacks and "hippies" who drove the counter-culture force demanding an end to militarism.

The pursuit of knowledge and advancement of medical research are among the many victims of the War on Drugs. Just as marijuana prohibition is now being dismantled under the juggernaut of reason, so too will the prohibition of psychedelics.

For thousands of years, cultures around the world have explored the mystical experience provided by psychedelic substances, using mescaline, ayahuasca, and magic mushrooms for religious ceremony and healing purposes. In the 1940s, western medicine began realizing the potential for psychedelics to treat addiction and psychiatric disorders. Tens of thousands of people were treated effectively, and psychedelic drugs were on the fast track to becoming mainstream medicine. But the beast of oppression reared its ugly head.

Study after study has shown that having children does not make people happier. In fact, a so-called "happiness gap" exists between people who have kids and people who don't, and parents often pay a "happiness penalty" when they have children, research has

Recently, researchers studied data from 22 countries and found that the United States has the largest happiness shortfall between parents and non-parents, even larger than the gap found in similar nations like Great Britain and Australia. And in other developed Western countries, like Norway, Finland, Sweden, Hungary and Russia, the gap didn't exist at all. In fact, sometimes parents were even happier than non-parents.
