WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES
I get asked all the time how to remove as much government from your lives as possible. As a matter of fact, in the Ask Me Anything segment this week, there is just such a question. Make sure to hand around towards the end of this episode to hear that one.
One thing I always say when asked that question is to reduce your need to use government products and services. The biggest one that fits this category is to reduce your use of Federal Reserve Notes and other government fiat money. This brings me to an article I’ve hung on to for a couple of months. It’s not dated information and it’s something I knew I would want to talk about. What better time to do it than now!
The article comes from Roger Ver’s news.bitcoin.com site and is titled “Bitcoin Is a Viable Way to Remove the State From Your Life.” Hell yeah! That’s a title I can get behind! And, I agree with the sentiment 100%.
WHAT’S IN THE NEWS
In how to treat politicians news, Vitaly Zhuravsky, a member of the Economic Development Party, in Kiev, Ukraine, is full of rubbish today, as an angry mob tossed the neatly dresses lawmaker into a trash can, dousing him with water and throwing more trash on top of him.
In judicial misconduct news, with just a single warrant, a Florida detective obtained access to the DNA profiles of more than a million people — and experts say the case sets a dangerous precedent.
In bad boys news, an Arizona Deputy pinned a quadruple amputee to the ground and then arrested the teen who filmed it.
In legal murder news, a man has been executed in the US state of Georgia despite a request from his lawyers for DNA evidence which they claimed would clear him of murder.
In some good news, under pressure from his political advisers and lobbyists to factor in the potential pushback from his supporters, Trump has resisted moving forward with any action on vaping, while saying he still wants to study the issue.
In related news, The Massachusetts House of Representatives approved a bill that would ban flavored e-cigarettes, impose a 75 percent excise tax on “electronic nicotine delivery systems” (including e-liquids as well as devices), and authorize forfeiture of cars driven by vapers caught with “untaxed” products.
In immoral laws news, the act of annoying a police officer could become a crime in a New York county.
