Prosecution, Persecution & Government Intimidation

January 20th, 2016 · Comments Off

“I love my country, but I fear my government” once struck me as a bit paranoid.  However, recent accounts of citizens who’ve fallen into bureaucrats’ crosshairs is a reminder that “just because I’m paranoid, doesn’t mean they’re not after me.” Consider these examples of government run amok: • Oregan ranchers Steven and Dwight Hammond face [...]

The sad state of freedom in America

September 29th, 2015 · Comments Off

At a time when state legislators should be doing everything possible to encourage job creation, a bill working its way through the Colorado Legislature unfairly paints employers as unreasonable and untrustworthy.

Led by Democrat State Rep. Andy Kerr, plaintiffs [...]
