    I'm just gonna start this thread. I don't have the many skills that other members do when it comes to graphic memes or short video creations.

    I'm just humbly asking that some might be interested in stepping up.

    Rand is pushing an Audit the Fed bill.

    How many people do you know that actually understands what his means?

    So here I'd like to create some objectives and some out come.

    What can we do to saturate social media with the reason WHY the Fed needs auditing.

    I'd propose that for the next week we hash out definitions and strategy. Next week those that have the skills to create memes, twitters and videos do there stuff. And then we role it out.

    Just an open forum discussion on the viability or need tonight. Thoughts?

    The Army has warned its recruiters to treat the gun-toting civilians gathering at centers across the country in the wake of the Chattanooga, Tenn., shooting as a security threat.

    Soldiers should avoid anyone standing outside the recruiting centers attempting to offer protection and report them to local law enforcement and the command if they feel threatened, according to a U.S. Army Recruiting Command policy letter issued Monday.
    “I’m sure the citizens mean well, but we cannot assume this in every case and we do not want to advocate this behavior,” according to the Army Command Operations Center-Security Division letter, which was authenticated by the service.

    A western Michigan woman heads to court Tuesday after being arrested for failing to renew her dog’s license.

    Becky Rehr says she drove to the Kalamazoo County sheriff’s office June 23 to prove that she’s recently renewed the license for the family’s 11-year-old dog, Dexter. Rehr’s 14-year-old daughter waited in the car as her mother was arrested, fingerprinted and held for three hours, The Kalamazoo Gazette said.

    “They frisked me and put me in this intake cell with all these inmates in orange jumpsuits,” Rehr said. “I was pretty nervous.”

    Failure to license a dog is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and $100 fine.

    The Third Amendment, which guards against the quartering of soldiers in citizens’ homes – and which came into being because of the abuse of British troops against American patriots – has just been dinged by a judge who ruled the provision doesn’t apply to police.

    In essence, that means police on official business could claim the legal right to bust into a private citizen’s home and occupy it.

    The determination from federal district court Judge Andrew Gordon was rendered when he dismissed a Third Amendment claim from a Henderson, Nevada, family who suffered that very fate.

    Nevada’s top judge recently had to appear before state lawmakers asking for more money for the state Supreme Court, apparently because law enforcement officers aren’t writing enough traffic tickets.

    Chief Justice James Hardesty testified before a joint Senate Finance and Ways and Means subcommittee, during which he told the panel that the court needed $700,000 by May 1 or it will be out of money. “Do you want me to close the judicial branch of government at the state level on May 1?” Hardesty said, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

    He added that law enforcement is not generating the same amount of revenue from traffic tickets as it once did, and that’s robbing the high court of funds for operations. “I’m not faulting law enforcement; either they are understaffed

    Thread Starter: Suzanimal

    I have an irrational fear of elevator free falls but I feel better knowing what to do. Instead of laying flat, what about sitting like they tell you during tornado drills. My mom used to call it the stick your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye pose. ...

    Strawberries and Squirrels

    Thread Starter: Suzanimal

    I planted 42 strawberry plants last fall and here is the only strawberry I've managed to harvest. I've seen tons of green strawberries but when I went back to pick them they were gone. At first I thought the birds were getting them but a couple of weeks ago my mom noticed several holes in the ground near my plants and she says they're ground squirrel holes. I'm having my strawberry for...
