It’s the ultimate property right to produce a product on your own land using your own hard work. Then government legislators wade in and decide what you will be “permitted” to do on the land you own and work with your own two hands. Wisconsin farmer Vernon Hershberger was charged with the heinous crime of producing and selling milk to willing and happy customers without a … [Read more...]
Horrifying Headline proves just how screwed up our priorities are
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is under fire (again) for being everything a liberal despises. Saving Toronto taxpayers over a BILLION dollars is meaningless. Ford is a jerk and there is no low too low when it comes to attacking him in the press. For the “crime” of being a conservative and doing exactly what he said he would do if elected Mayor of Toronto, the mindless lemmings of … [Read more...]
Some People Despise Liberty and they’ll say or do anything to take yours away too
It would seem Toronto’s Ron Charach didn’t get cuddled enough by his mommy when he was young, or perhaps he had no strong manly figure around to teach him what it means to be, well, manly. Whatever the failings of Mr. Charach’s upbringing may be, they combined to create a man who utterly despises personal responsibility and is determined to do whatever it takes to strip … [Read more...]
Guntersville Mayor Leigh Dollar is just another jackbooted thug, albeit with perfume…
Is there no end to the raft of elected officials who cannot comprehend the oath of office they swear? You know, those pesky little section where they affirm they will “support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic”? It’s a simple phrase and an even simpler concept, yet time and time again we hear of duly elected officials doing the exact … [Read more...]
No Right to Bear Arms in Canada? You might want to re-check your history.
By Chris McGarry If there is one topic of conversation your average Joe Canuck takes pleasure in discussing over a cup of Tim Horton’s coffee (besides hockey) it’s the fact that we’re not American. Despite months of unending snow and cold and short summers plagued by hazy, mosquito–filled skies, we in the Great White North have it pretty darn good: a health care system … [Read more...]

Remembrance Day: Our Most Important Holiday
[powerpress] Remembrance Day is, I believe, the most important holiday we have. This is the one day we set aside each year to remember all of the brave men and women who fought to protect our Rights and Freedoms. That includes both those veterans who returned home safely after serving and those who came home wounded and broken; those who now rest in graves … [Read more...]
With Liberty Comes Great Responsibility
John Adams, back in 1765, wrote what came to be called his Dissertation on Canon and Feudal Law. In that document are the following words: “Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right, from the frame of their nature, to knowledge, as their great Creator, who does nothing in vain, has given them understandings, and a desire to … [Read more...]
Corey Maygard: Harassed by Edmonton Police for the “crime” of videotaping them on a public street
Corey Maygard was on the street on Friday, August 10, 2012 and saw what he thought were Edmonton Police Service constables physically abusing a man. He pulled out his iPhone and started recording what he witnessed. One of the constables came over and demanded that Corey stop recording them. Fine. The constable can make any demand he likes. That doesn’t mean anyone has to … [Read more...]
Ontario’s so-called “conservative” Tim Hudak claims to believe in Freedom of Speech
Freedom of Speech is such an invaluable right, but like what happens with any one of our precious Rights and Freedoms when it is taken for granted, those of us living in the western world don’t appreciate its value. We fail to understand what it is like to live in Iran or Egypt or China, where simply speaking your mind about the government can land you in prison for the rest … [Read more...]
Judge to RCMP: Citizens have Rights. You violated them. Case Dismissed.
In what is becoming a trend across Canada, judges are having less and less patience with police forces who illegally search a person’s vehicle, residence or person. The latest case involves two people who [allegedly] have known gang affiliations in Burnaby, BC. Damion Ryan and Theresa Latham faced a total of 30 gun charges after police searched their home after responding … [Read more...]
Albertans: Alison Redford stole your property rights. NOW is the time to take them back.
Most Albertans have no idea that the Progressive Conservative government, under the so-called “leadership” of Ed Stelmach and Alison Redford, literally extinguished property rights in the province of Alberta. This was done in a deceitfully systematic and methodical way using Bill 50, Bill 19, Bill 36 and Bill 10. The combined effect of these laws and the order in which a … [Read more...]
Unless you have a Government Permission Slip to break the law (a licence) you’re going to jail
What is a licence? It is nothing more than a Government Permission Slip (GPS) to break the law. Just because you may choose not to believe me doesn’t make it any less true. It is a crime to do a myriad of things in Canada today; things that should not be a crime, yet are. Politicians mistakenly believe they must always be doing something when the very best thing they could … [Read more...]
Zero Tolerance = Zero Common Sense = Zero Justice
The case of Jessie Sansone and his ordeal at the hands of the Almighty State should sound the alarm bells deep inside every Canadian's brain. Three government agencies, all now abdicating responsibility for the fiasco, combined for a perfect storm of abuse upon Jessie Sansone, all because his 4-year-old daughter drew a picture of her dad holding a gun. NEWS FLASH! … [Read more...]
Bill C-30’s invasions of privacy and warrantless searches are outrageous, but all the other Acts are just fine?
Bruce Cockburn wrote a famous song that contained the line “The trouble with normal is it only gets worse.” The same can be said for governments. They always get worse, too. The current so-called Conservative government is a perfect example of this, and Vic Toews unwittingly tried using this to his advantage. He quickly discovered, much to his dismay, that Canadians … [Read more...]
Saskatchewan dumps its Human Rights Tribunal. That’s 1 down, 13 to go…
Saskatchewan has officially dumped its Human Rights Tribunal. What a momentous day for our cherished Rights and Freedoms! This is the day we've been anticipating since Saskatchewan's Justice Minister Don Morgan announced the proposal about a year and a half ago. Anyone who hasn't been hiding under a rock for the past 5 years will know all about such stellar examples of … [Read more...]
