CA: Scouts unbowed by Berkeley bullies

"The Scouts are loathed by many self-styled progressives for transmitting a code of commitment, stressing God and country, that was supposed to be marginalized by now. But they're not giving in to bureaucratic bullies who try to force them to shed 'outmoded' beliefs on matters of sex and social values. Lovers of liberty - even those who might disagree with Scouting's principles - should toast their tenacity for the First Amendment and the right not to be PC."
 

How far have property rights been eroded?

"Why are American sovereign citizens treated with threats of fines and arrest should we fail to jump to attention and scour our property for the junk a careless federal agency has dumped on our land (they could have politely requested the help of the citizens of Texas and Louisiana, offering to compensate them for any trouble and inconvenience.) Why was their first instinct instead to resort to threats of armed force? And why, in contrast, would they show so much more courtesy, respect and consideration to the representatives of the bloodthirsty butchers of Tiananmen Square?"

"Next time: the answer."

"The PIRG scam is short for 'Public Interest Research Group,' and there are well over a hundred chapters of the organization spread out across the country. The scams vary from campus to campus, but it basically works like this:"

"Each time your kid registers for classes, the local PIRG chapter has arranged with the school to tack a fee on to his/her tuition. On most every campus, the PIRG chapter has made attempts to make this 'contribution' as secretive and misleading as possible. Just how secretive and manipulative the method depends on how much resistance each chapter has met in trying to get the scheme implemented. At most schools, they first attempt to make the fee both mandatory and nonrefundable. If that doesn't work, they lobby for as underhanded and sneaky a scheme as the school will allow." ...

"So students continue to unknowingly fork money over to Green causes. And universities continue to look the other way. And all the while, Ralph Nader and his nationwide army of advocates go on collecting millions - each three, five, or eight-dollar fee at a time."
 

Court Considers Forced Medication Case

"The Supreme Court wrangled Monday over the government's authority to force nonviolent criminal defendants _ and potentially other people not charged with crimes to take drugs against their will."

"The court is considering whether a dentist, now locked up in a psychiatric unit, can be forced to take anti-psychotic drugs to make him well enough to stand trial for health care fraud. But the justices did not limit their discussions to the drugging of people facing charges."

"Justice Sandra Day O'Connor asked if the government can require children to be vaccinated against smallpox. Justice Anthony Kennedy evoked an image of defendants and witnesses being injected before a trial with drugs that control their behavior. If the government can medicate the dentist, why not a person charged with a traffic violation, Justice Stephen Breyer asked."

"This 5-foot-4, sandy-haired sophomore has the drive to do it. He has a 3.0 grade point average, and he watches his diet for up to a week before each competition to make sure he will not be jittery from caffeine or sugar."

"The only thing between the muzzle of his rifle and the black dot in the center of the target is his psyche. Shooting is an intensively mental sport that requires Zen-like calm and focus."

" 'It has been almost a year now that I have been trying to get help,' one woman told The Salt Lake Tribune. 'I would just like someone to know how frustrating it is from a victim's point of view.' "

-------
Let's get this straight: that worthless piece of paper will not protect victims. The proper use of a firearm will.

"Many don't think there is a need for a firearm to protect your home and family. I think that this is a naïve attitude. Simply take a look at recent events such as the Los Angeles riots after the Rodney King verdict, and the need for a firearm becomes evident. Rioting can, and will, take place after natural and man-made events. Examples that could cause this type of reaction are terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and even reactions to court verdicts." ...

Jacobs should also tell abused women to arm themselves, as shooting their assailant will take much less time than waiting for the police to arrive.

"In the aftermath of the deadly fire in 'The Station' Nightclub in W. Warwick, Rhode Island, all the talking heads on TV can talk about is 'Code Violations' or the fact that no one obtained a 'Permit' for the pyrotechnics that set off that terrible fire. This is indicative of an attitude fostered by Government over-control of our daily lives." ...

"Now, back to the fire. 'They didn't get a Permit!!! That's why the bar burned down!!!' NO!!! The bar burned down because the person that placed the pyrotechnics did not determine what was in the flame front of those devices. Nor did they take appropriate measures for fire fighting in case of a problem. I am a Racing Engineer, I always have a fire extinguisher handy, and know where more are if needed when I am dealing with flammable or explosive materials. I prefer not to burn or blow up!"

"Jury nullification occurs when a criminal trial jury decides not to enforce a law because they believe it would be unjust or misguided to convict. ... History shows juries have taken this enormous power very seriously, and have used it responsibly. Rosenthal's jurors agree. Jury foreman Charles Sackett has said the jury probably would have nullified the law and acquitted, had they known this was a medical marijuana case."

"Safe Passage, a Westminster-based company that offers self-protection courses, gave a series of workshops in Durango over the weekend. The Women’s Resource Center, the Rape Intervention Team, the Victim’s Assistance and Law Enforcement Program, and Planned Parenthood sponsored the workshops."

"The Women’s Journey workshop on Saturday taught students physical self-defense skills, but instructors taught them to use their verbal skills and assertiveness to prevent the use of physical skills."

-------
Telling an assailant to go away loudly is unlikely to make him leave you alone. The use of physical skills requires close proximity to your assailant. A firearm can be used at a distance. Do you really want your assailant that close to you?

"Let's stick with the right to keep and bear arms for a minute. My Democratic friends, when you think about this question, ask yourself if snobbery as a political force isn't part of the reason you stand where you stand."

"Gun owners hunt. They keep guns to protect themselves in dangerous places--rural areas where help isn't always immediately available, for instance. They like and respect firearms and are committed to their right to have them. A lot of gun owners live down South or out West or in the less fashionable sections of the Northern industrial states. They are mostly not coastal and urban in their cultural interests. They are not the media elite, the academic elite, any kind of elite. Do you respect these people?"

"In their zeal to defend the individual right to keep and bear arms, most firearms owners limit their discussions to the Second Amendment. There is, however, another amendment that not only helps resolve the controversy surrounding the intent and wording of the Second Amendment, but also makes the prohibition enumerated in that Amendment enforceable against the States. In the author’s opinion, this is one of the reasons why opponents of the individual right to keep and bear arms, at the State level, are so opposed to this interpretation of the Second Amendment."
