SORT BY Relevancy
In a democratic form of government, where a vote constitutes a real voice in government, voting is the most precious right of all. In the United States, where votes don't have to be counted, aren't verifiable, and elected officials do not let public opinion influence their policy decisions, a vote, no matter who or what anyone votes for, is consent to tyranny.
Mark E. Smith, the author of Consent to Tyranny: Voting in the USA, was sixty years old and a habitual voter in 2000 when the Supreme Court stopped the vote count. Mark spent the next six years as an election integrity activist, doing research and bringing litigation to try to ensure that US votes would be counted. In 2006, having learned that it is Constitutionally impossible to have free and fair elections in the US, Mark dedicated his life to full time election boycott advocacy and to educating people to the fact that as long as they are willing to vote in sham elections, there is no incentive for government to allow honest elections.
in Pop Culture
Literally "Costume Play." Dressing up and pretending to be a fictional character (usually a sci-fi, comic book, or anime character).
(usage) There are anime cosplay conventions around the world.
“Costumes are not consent. It’s a phrase you may be hearing a lot lately, and one we need to keep talking about. In the past few weeks, the internet has exploded with women speaking up about the treatment we receive at conventions and online. This isn’t a new problem that has suddenly presented itself. The issues have always been there. What is happening now is we finally feel we are allowed to speak up, that doing so will not result in us being ostracized from our community – because we are now acting as a community, a support structure, to create a safe environment for all costumers and convention goers.”

Yes, we are talking about Comic con and the like, and the amount of harassment dished out to women ( and sometimes men) who enjoy dressing up as their favourite character and joining other like minded fans at conventions. Somehow, dressing as your favourite comic book character has been misconstrued as a license for fans to paw and grope these women while treating them like sexual objects.
Today we will be talking to Sam Maggs weekend editor of the online publication themarysue.com about the problems cosplayers face at these conventions, and how we can raise awareness.

Welcome to North London Paranormal Investigations Radio USA with Kurt and Moe "Dark History Show" . We are going to discuss how the predictions of Nostrdamus are twisted by people with there own agenda. Meny people see Nostrodamus as a true seer. We are going to debunk many of his predictionas and tear into his predictions and debunk them.
(December 14, 1503 – July 1, 1566) born Michel de Nostredame, is one of the world's most famous authors of prophecies. He is most famous for his book Les Propheties, which consists of rhymed quatrains (4-line poems) grouped into sets of 100, called Centuries.
Nostradamus enthusiasts have credited him with predicting a copious number of events in world history, including the French Revolution, the atom bomb, the rise of Adolf Hitler and the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Detractors, however, see such predictions as examples of vaticinium ex eventu, retroactive clairvoyance and selective thinking, which find non-existent patterns in ambiguous statements. Because of this, it has been claimed that Nostradamus is "100% accurate at predicting events after they happen".

“If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpations; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.” George Washington
Our Constitution wisely provided us the means to change our Constitution anytime we please via the admittedly arduous Amendment Process. Unfortunately for some our amendment process designed to reveal the true intention(s) of a proposed amendment.
Starting around one hundred years ago people such as Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt decided they could stealthy usurp not only our Constitution but the Three Separate Branches of Government as well. For the sake of argument we’ll assume they had our best interests in mind and heart.
The first order of business was to begin constructing a federal bureaucracy whereby the agencies would have the three branches of government under one roof. In other words Dr. Frankenstein has succeeded in his experiment but he created a monster.
I look at this and reflect upon the above quote by George Washington and am reminded that it matters not what their intentions are however benevolent - it still equals usurpation of the Constitution.
Our monster is the federal agencies having all three branches of government under one roof and being turned loose on “We the People”. If you’re like me having been born seeing the agencies operate in this manner it was just how things are done. I contend and I think you will see this is Tyranny plain and simple and it needs to be changed now.
I can not even begin to guess how many times I have been told things like...
"Bill our two party system is just not working"
"Our voting system needs an overall, It's all broken."
"Bill, we need open primaries." and the opposite, "We need to tighten up our primaries. The system is being abused."
This morning "In the Pickle Barrel" we will discuss these issues.
Hopefully, with your input, we will be able to determine what is right and what is wrong with our system of elections.Or, perhaps we will decide our system is okay.
Hope to see you at 7AM-8:30AM this morning "In the Pickle Barrel".

Derrick Rose is one of five point guards in training camp for Team USA, and he is the only one who has these three things in play right now:
_ He is trying to initiate a career comeback after playing only 10 games the past two seasons after injuries to both of his knees.
_ He is the only one of the five Team USA point guards who has won an MVP award. Also, he started for Mike Krzyzewski four years ago in Turkey at the World Championship.
_ His coach, Tom Thibodeau, is an assistant on the U.S. staff and is overseing Rose's scrimmages with an eagle eye.
Columnist Bobby Gonzalez attended the first day of practice and wrote that he thinks Rose will make the final 12-man roster, along with Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving (Damian Lillard and John Wall would miss the cut. I wrote in my camp preview that I thought Rose would be the easiest to cut.
So what are we to make of Rose's strong play and strong words following the colclusion of Day One of Team USA's training camp? I discussed on the Boers and Bernstein Show on 670-AM The Score in Chicago.
We are a Republic, no matter how the Establishment Progressives try to tell you differently. Why are the voters voting for so many ballot issues? Is that a good thing? MO State Rep Paul Curtman will be my guest in the 8am hour!
Changing minds every day of the week!
