Interview With the Founder of Awareness Act
On 28 June 2013, I had the pleasure of interviewing Mike Moore, founder of Awareness Act again, and this time, we had a lot of news to cover, including the fact that he has been persecuted extra-judiciously by the government, that Awareness Act is now…

FACEBOOK GENDER TOGGLER

o-FACEBOOK-570Editorial by Barbara Cornell.

Syndicated from Barbara Cornell’s personal blog.

It used to be very important to me that people understand me. I was, like every other youth in America,

Mizundaztood.

The thing that was vitally important for everyone to understand was that I was smart. It didn’t matter whatever else you understood as long as you knew I was smart. It didn’t even matter to me if you understood I was arrogant and condescending about my intelligence, so long as you knew I had a lot of it.

In college, people would see me and say, «There’s the girl who sets all the curves in all the classes!» just trying to be nice. And I would correct them, and make sure they understood that my scores were always eliminated, and the curve was always set on the second highest score. Because you needed to know how smart I was.

I studied engineering but … well, there were a lot of forks in the road and I ended up getting an accounting degree, which I mostly considered beneath me because I was smarter than all the others in those classes. I had a favorite story I liked to tell about how I refused to buy a $300 calculator for a business math class, choosing instead to solve all the annuity problems using actual math and the professor had to take my exams to the math department to have them graded. I had a copy of the most recent IQ test I’d taken, proving my IQ was way off the charts.

I began my career as an accountant only to find out that I would face life being called a secretary, because I was female, and I wasn’t a nurse or a school teacher, so therefor I must be a secretary. This pissed me off beyond measure. I was not a secretary. I was smarter than that. (I’ve since figured out that, if you get out of bed and make a significant contribution to your own survival every day by performing some honest labor, then you deserve some respect. It’s astounding how your 30’s pummel the hubris of your youth out of you.) I gave out my business card to anyone who would stand still long enough to have it foisted on them so that they could see I was a 20-something CFO.

In the years since, I’ve figured out that having the general population understand me is way overrated. If my few, close friends and the people who pay me understand the essentials, then that’s enough. Having the understanding of strangers isn’t really good for much of anything. Can’t eat it, can’t live in it, can’t trade it for new movies at Amazon.

I think we all understand, at some level, everyone else’s need to be understood for who they are, even if we can’t identify with the particulars.

FacebookMisunderstoodTake, for example, the transgender issue. I don’t actually understand it. I’m female. I’ve always been female. I exhibit some decidedly «masculine» characteristics (aggression, alpha-member domination tendencies, analytic approach, many others) but it’s never once occurred to me that I was anything other than female. Gender seems to me a pretty black/white, binary, minor kind of proposition, and knowing my gender has never once suggested to me that I should behave any way other than I do, but I understand there are others who believe differently about it, probably because they have different experiences. I get that. I don’t actually get the issue, but I get that it’s important to some that I understand it’s an issue for them.

What I do understand, though, is Facebook. I can’t recall the number of times I’ve read someone beating a drum loudly, demanding that Facebook recognize more than two genders and provide more options on the gender toggle button. (It’s about self-expression!)

Here’s what I know about Facebook: it’s a for profit sight, owned primarily by its staff and Mark Zuckerburg, whose sole purpose in life is to draw you to it so that the people who pay them for advertising space can sell you stuff.

Seems to me that demanding that Facebook understand your struggle for self expression is like storming into McDonald’s and demanding that they understand you are a corporate officer, not a secretary. They don’t care. They just want to know whether you want fries with that. Seems like if your family, close friends (and the people from whom you derive your living so far as it’s relevant to your rendering of services) understand that you don’t identify as either male or female that the rest of the world can just kiss your ass.

Seems to me that people take Facebook (and the «understanding» of the general public) way too seriously.

TRUE CHRISTIAN MODUS OPERANDI — JESUS LOVES PORN STARS

The Waikato Times ran an story on 22 January 2013 in respect to the Parachute Christian Music Festival held annually here in the Waikato which caught my attention (Porn Star Worships Gift Bible) because of its Libertarian idealism.   A church organization called «XXXChurch.com» is going to be at the festival with the Idea of starting a «fellowship» here in New Zealand.

Here’s a Bible.I loved that.”

I plan to make contact with them as they appear to be my kind of people; that is: Christians who don’t ride around on high horses like self righteous legalistic Pharisees preaching about how «God Hates Fags,» but instead preach the love and grace of God towards sinners.  This is how real Christianity functions: i.e. via Libertarian means, not by inciting mob violence or legalistic oppression, but via reason and compassion.

I salute them.

THE NATURE OF CHARITY

1151ab454aeca285248a3eb69711f3f8Article by Barbara Cornell.

Syndicated from Barbara Cornell’s personal blog.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This story was originally published on 07 September 2013.

Nearly 4 months ago, a friend of PJ’s called and said he and his fiance (we’ll call them Lerry and Alissa) could no longer stay with his mother and they needed a place to stay for «2 or 3 days until the new house was ready to move into.»

While they stayed with us, they did considerable damage to my house, let their children run loose to destroy my property and endanger my pets. Neither of them had jobs, although Lerry claimed he would go back into self-employment as a contractor, and because they had no way to get around, I let them use my car (the one I used to commute and conduct business; I have another one for personal use). They never washed any dishes, they never cleaned the room they used, they left their dirty underwear piled up in the floor literally knee deep, they played the television loudly all night. Also, while they were there, Lerry remodeled my kitchen and did a fantastic job of it, so it was a mixed bag.

welfareworkDuring this time, I was forced to face down the worst of my demons: resentment. Alissa, a woman of 23 years, has already birthed and abandoned 4 babies (2 of them she dumped off on her sister, one of them she dumped off on her ex-boyfriend’s grandmother and the other she’s never said where she dumped that one off.) She collects food stamps and public assistance for each of these children, even though they are nowhere to be seen. She does nothing. All day every day. She does nothing. On the days she gets out of the bed at all (which is about half of them), she sleeps 16 hours, then she visits the bathroom, then she sits on the couch watching television until she goes back to bed. Lerry brings her food to the couch then either she leaves her dishes on the couch (or on the floor or in the bed) or Lerry takes them to the kitchen. When Lerry paid for her to go to school to get her GED, she flatly refused to go. She makes no effort whatsoever to contribute to her own survival. I found that my resentment of her was overwhelming. She lives off of me, makes zero effort whatsoever to contribute, impedes my ability to earn a living, and while I am working at my job or building a business to support my family and her, she sleeps. I would like to think I don’t have such ugly emotions as resentment, but her presence in my house proved to me that was a lie I told myself.

But even after all of that, I still was willing to give them (or at least him) the benefit of the doubt. He seemed to be a hard worker and did good work, and if he chose women poorly, well…we all have our faults.

He showed me a house that was for sale (big, beautiful, two-story Victorian era house with hardwood floors) for practically nothing (squabbling among the estate’s heirs). I agreed that I would buy the house and he would remodel it and then we’d resell it and split the profits. It was a good deal. And it would help him get back on his feet, and give him a place to stay while he worked. By this time they’d been living in my house for over a month. The project should have taken a month.

The project went fine for about a month. Then he just stopped working. I would show up there at 2 or 3 in the afternoon, and they were both still in bed. Or they weren’t there at all. He took off a week to «grieve» over a friend (whom he hadn’t heard from in 20 years) who shot himself. He took off a day for Alissa’s birthday, took off 3 days to go to a doctor’s appointment and get a prescription. This, that or the other thing, and pretty soon, he hadn’t done a thing in an entire month. About every couple of days, there would be someone new I’d never laid eyes on living in the house with them (he told me they were homeless and willing to work in exchange for a place to stay.) I lost count of how many of these people he brought in, but it was at least 20, and they all live on welfare and have no intention of ever doing anything else. I was shocked to discover the size of the pool of these hopeless people living in this small town. Quite often, I would go to the house to check on the progress and it would be filled to the rafters with people I never heard of and Lerry would not be there. Gone…somewhere. I addressed with him repeatedly that I was allowing him to use my car as a favor and to make it possible for him to conduct business but he was not to loan it to anyone, and still many times I would see it around town being driven by someone I never saw before in my life.

As of today, I’ve given them a place to stay, a job, a car to drive, insurance, utilities and quite a bit of cash for going on 4 months.

other-peoples-money-98518703623Now, I’m willing to overlook a lot of things. All this time, I was perfectly aware that he was taking advantage of my generosity, I suspected he was skimming off the top of the project (kickbacks from the crew, stealing construction materials and pocketing the money, possibly charging rent from all his misfits, he claimed one of his crew stole a generator, compressor, tools and supplies but I suspect it was him) so I reined in his ability to do that, but I never removed all faith from him because I believe in generosity for its own sake, even if the recipients are not entirely worthy of it. That is the nature of grace, and I embrace that. People in desperate situations sometimes make desperate choices. «There but for the grace of God go I.» Also, I think we improve our character the most when we’ve been shown grace, been given things that we know we don’t deserve.

But there is a fine line between generosity and corruption, and there is a point at which generosity reduces the recipient’s ability to survive (not to mention the giver), at which point the giver becomes the corrupter. And we’ve far exceeded that. So, it was time to put a stop to it. I communicated to him last week that I was removing his authority over the project, sending a new foreman to supervise the job and he was to take instruction from the foreman. I still intended to carry through with my agreement to split the profits with him, but he had to be at work every day, he had to cease lying to me (he told me many bald-faced lies) and the project had to progress significantly from that point forward (we are already over budget and over-schedule and the project is far from done) or I would have to fire him from his job, repossess the car, and evict him from the house.

Yesterday, a member of the crew communicated to me that Lerry had stated that he intends to steal the car and leave the state. I’ve decided I need to repossess the car because (besides the fact that this morning it has a dent in it and he has not offered any explanation for that) I genuinely do not want to be in any way responsible for sending the man to prison, and if he steals my car I will have no choice but to report it stolen (I’m not so wealthy that I can afford to lose an entire car, I will have to file an insurance claim and that will necessitate having a police report).

Now, I’m not saying that every person who receives assistance is corrupted by it. But I think it is a rare person who can receive unmerited assistance for very long without being corrupted by it.

Lerry probably could redeem himself, but it’s obvious that further welfare would do nothing except harm to him.

Alissa, however, is irredeemable. She’s spent her entire life being paid to produce offspring for whom she shows no degree of responsibility. She is, as we speak, producing the next generation of people who are incapable of survival. If at any point, she had been forced to face the reality of having to do something to stay alive, she probably would have done that. But she is supported by a faceless state and she will never do anything to support herself as a result. She is the living, breathing personification of the destruction that is wreaked upon long-term recipients of welfare. The welfare system destroyed any chance she may ever have had to survive on her own.

I see the proof of the damage that is done by the guilt of the masses every day, first-hand. I suspect that if you are of the opinion that welfare systems help people, then you have never actually sat face-to-face with any of the people the systems cripple. And by advocating these systems while remaining ignorant, you are responsible for the damage done to peoples’ lives.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Since this story was written, Barbara and PJ investigated Lerry’s work progress and misuse of funds.  They found that he was defrauding them, as well as the welfare system, and was not getting any work done whatsoever.  They gave him notice of eviction and notified him of breach of contract.  Lerry subsequently sued them for breach of contract.  He lied to the lawyer who was representing him.  When the lawyer was presented with the evidence that PJ and Barbara had accumulated, he immediately dropped the lawsuit in exchange for a promise that they would not pursue criminal charges.  Lerry was evicted from the premises on 25 October 2013, as ordered by the court; he was not in the house when PJ arrived to evict him.  Lerry’s things were still inside the house.  After the police granted PJ and Barbara permission to enter the premises, they proceeded to throw away Lerry’s belongings.  Lerry attempted to muscle past Barbara with a gang of 6 thugs, but decided not to when he saw that she was armed with PJ’s 1911 .45 caliber hand gun (PJ had to go close out some business with a gunsmithing client of his; we speculate that Lerry waited until PJ left, thinking he would overpower Barbara once he was gone — PJ was only gone for 20-30 minutes; fortunately, he had the presence of mind to leave his firearm with Barbara).  All of Lerry’s belongings were promptly picked up by the sanitation department.

WOMAN MAULED TO DEATH BY DOGS: A VICTIM OF NANNY STATE AND OVINE CULTURE

Thirty-one year-old Chloe Mathewson died after being attacked by two dogs at Redvale in the early hours of Friday morning.

Read more about it on News Talk ZB.

«Thirty-one year-old Chloe Mathewson died after being attacked by two dogs at Redvale in the early hours of Friday morning.

Her father Jim Mathewson says his daughter was a sensitive, caring and compassionate person — with a glorious sense of humour.

He says Chloe’s magnetic personality drew people to her, and she inspired others.

But Chloe Mathewson also suffered from serious addictions, he says.

In a statement on behalf of the family, Mr Mathewson says: «Chloe is our only much loved daughter and sister to Ben. She was a much wanted child.

 ‘I was present at her birth and gave her her first feed and we bonded forever. We called her Chloe which is Greek for «blooming, beautiful.»‘»

My thoughts: this is a horrific tragedy.  So very sad.

Yet, just imagine if it was both legal and routine in our country for woman to carry a small pistol?

She would probably still be alive.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Yes, she probably would be.  The statistics bear out the colloquial wisdom that more guns equals lower crime.

Some may argue she is a victim of too much liberty (with respect to dog ownership).  Others (like myself) can apprehend she is in fact a victim of «nanny state» legislation which not only has disarmed us all and left us defenseless against criminals and wild animals, but also has generated a sheepish culture, wherein the very idea of carrying a weapon for personal defense is considered to be virtually a deviant mentality.

EDITOR’S NOTE: 

Thus, it is also a great tragedy to grasp just how far socialism has institutionalized our population. The very idea of being self reliant and bearing the means of self defense are completely alien concepts.

I’ll probably receive hate mail for making «political capital» out of this tragedy.

EDITOR’S NOTE: And the ones who make political capital by blaming dog-owners’ individual rights for the tragedy probably won’t. Tim Wikiriwhi is currently running for mayor of Hamilton, New Zealand as the Libertarianz candidate.

TRAILBLAZING POLICE CHIEF, MARK KESSLER, TALKS GUNS AND FREEDOM

Article by Mark I Rasskazov.

The video above is the interview I had with Chief Kessler.  Once I got him talking, we ended up speaking on a number of subjects, where he cogently and succinctly explained his views on a number of political and philosophical subjects.

Some of the things we talked about:

c23838d5a26f73db2fd4ff5cb6c0bc2b_mooaObviously, the first thing we talked about was his interpretation of the second amendment, including his interpretation of the «Well regulated militia» clause.

We talked about the proper scope of responsibility of the government, given the constitution.

We talked about what prompted him to become so actively pro-constitutionalist on a national scale.

We talked about Obama and his policies.

We talked about Senator Feinstein and her Facebook page.

We talked about how he got banned from Facebook, and the new social networking site, Awareness Act.

We talked about Sandy Hook, and the parents’ response.

5e39a87359e4263c044f1cfa8dc40225_0h3sWe talked about how in most schools there are no armed guards, and how he was able to get it approved in his local school district.

He talked about his community in Gilberton, PA, and the relationship he has with his local government and his sheriff, as well as his take on Mayor Bloomberg and his ilk.

We talked about the responsibilities and attitudes of elected officials.

We talked about «illegal» guns.

We talked about gun registration and the Dick Act of 1902.

We talked about the Patriot Act.

06eac9103e93fcb297f012dfb200d2c2We talked about Congressional pay, the fact that they play the American people off of each other, and the fact that they vote for unconstitutional laws, as well as what we should do about it.

We talked about the possibility of a confrontation between the people and the government, including where he would stand, how many members of the government who would stand with the people, and how it would compare to the previous civil war.

We talked about the ATF and Waco.

We speculated on the possibility that the ATF’s classification of assault rifles as «machine guns» might represent a move to require a Class III Firearms License to own one.

We talked about the Supreme Court, the Constitution, the Law of the Land, and the legitimacy of the government.

3fc03d92b15b33efc249011d041b9892_o8fsWe talked about the possibility of impeaching president Obama.

We talked about the difference between a police chief and a sheriff, and why police chiefs are much more hesitant to come out publicly for the constitution.

We talked about the Constitutional Security Force, the civilian defense training organization, Fast Tactics, and his pro-freedom intelligence network, Oathbreakers.  We talked about violent crime, and how gun-ownership along with the proper training can help someone come out on top of a violent confrontation, and about how his Constitutional Security Force is partnered with Fast Tactics to provide training for private gun owners.

He closed with a call to action on the part of all liberty lovers to do their part to safeguard their freedoms for themselves, and for their posterity, and strongly reasserted the fact that our second amendment rights are the final safeguard of freedom against tyranny.
