Senator Cory Bernardi (South Australia) on Axxiom for Liberty Radio_10-22-2010

October 22, 2010

Tonight I will co-host “Axxiom for Liberty Radio with Kaye Beach” from 6:00 to 8:00 PM CST (US).  This shoudl be one show you will not want to miss.  We have as our guest, Senator Cory Bernardi (South Australia). Senator Bernardi came to my attention almost two years ago by way of a “hometown girl” turned Aussie citizen.  I began to read and listen to quite a bit of his writings and speeches and thought to myself: “This guy sounds like me (different accent though)”. 

Cory is among the most Conservative of voices in Australian politics and will not shy away from controversy nor throw his conservative principles to the way-side.  He is a staunch supporter of property rights, lower taxation on Australian citizens, national sovereignty (vs World governance), a HUGE anthropogenic climate-change critic (calls Al Gore “The Myth-Maker”), hates Cap and Trade, struggles to limit the power of federal government, works to preserve and restore natural individual RIGHTS, and-so-on, and-so-on, and-so-on.

We will also have Marcus Kesler of The Oklahoma Pirate Party talking about the planned rally at the Oklahoma Stae Capitol on Oct 30 as well as Kirk Shelly representing Campaign for Liberty who will discuss a petition drive to protect PERSONAL INFORMATION from reaching the hands of the almight Big Government!

Should be a great show so please go to www.ruleoflawradio.com to ListenLive or get more info on the radio stations the show broadcasts from in the NINETEEN state coverage area as well as other ways to listen to the show.

see ya there!

A “FUNERAL” to Mark the Death of Property Rights in Australia

October 21, 2010
           On this weeks “The Road to Liberty with Howard Houchen” show, I interview Debra Medina, former Texas gubernatorial candidate and President of We Texans, about Property Rights and ownership in Texas and the rest of America.  For those of us who pay close attention to this most fundamental aspect of Liberty, we understand that the notion of “actually owning property” is rapidly declining and can be considered “DEAD” in many instances.  At the very least, we view the current state of property rights as being in severe deterioration.  Some may ask what the future holds if we allow more government intervention and do not “hold-the-line” on OUR ability to “OWN” property and roll-back many of the current policies, laws, and regulations governments have imposed on OUR property. 
           I have a case that provides that magical looking-glass into the future…it is happening in West Australia.  The case surrounding the Narrogin Feed-Lot is not at all complicated but it is quite a chore to relay all the details.  In short, the hyper-environmentalism lobby, married to a corrupt quasi-governmental entity, sired by a Progressive govetnance philosophy, has just killed any notion that Property Rights extend to a Property owner.  What we learn from this case is that YOUR Property, MY Property, OUR Property, can be confiscated even if all laws, regulations, licenses, codes, and political whims are fulfilled!  That is exactly what is taking place in W. Australia as I write this and this is exactly what WILL take place here and elsewhere if WE fail to hold-the-line on government usurpations of power.
           On Monday, October 25, 2010, a “Funeral” will be held on the step of Parliament House in Perth WA to signify the death of Property Rights in Australia.  Those in attendance will be wearing the traditional color of mourning…BLACK…and speakers will eulogize this tragic loss by recounting brighter days.  Days of not-so-long-ago when a property owner could make decisons like; I want to make fire-break s as to make more of my land immune to the spread of wild-fires or I would like to drill a well and use the water I find or I want to operate a business utilizing my land (while adhering to every rule in exstence) that produces goods in an efficient and safe manner.
           Here is a quote concerning what many are facing: ” …we’re looking to lend the Premier a bit of support in his commitment to taking action on property rights this year.  If you have been affected by Native Vegetation Clearing Bans, Groundwater Protection Notices, Heritage Listing, Planning Regulations, Licencing Impositions, or other assaults on what you thought was your private property, come along and lend your support to this important PEACEFUL demonstration.”
Here is a link to “Funeral” and “Burial Ceremony” announcement as well as the place that provides all the details of what has and is happening in Australia:

           Ladies and Gentlemen, for OUR boys and girls, WE must not allow OUR government…YOU must not allow YOUR government…to steal this essential element of Liberty right in front of us!!!  The struggle for Freedom and the maintenance of Liberty is never-ending and never easy and many times it is never pretty.  But it IS NECESSARY!

The Hugo Football Buffaloes are 0 – 7…So What!

October 21, 2010

           Throughout the extensive history of our Hugo Football Buffaloes we have seen winning seasons, mediocre seasons, losing seasons, building seasons, lost seasons, and hard-to-define seasons.  Over these same many decades, fans, parents, and casual observers of The Mighty Buffaloes have taken up the position of “arm-chair quarterback” and “arm-chair coach”…me included!  This aspect of involvement is to be expected, it’s simply human nature.  No matter where one travels on this planet earth, if there is a sport being played, there are observers that have an opinion and most will let that opinion be known at some level.  This, too, is an important variable that makes up the “phenomenon” of high school football.

            In talking to MANY folks who are involved, and have been involved, and have witnessed the roller-coaster that is indicative of Hugo Buffalo football (and virtually every other sports program that has ever existed), you will find frustration at our 0 and 7 start to the 2010 season but you will also find no sense that horrific events may follow.  Frustration because, once again, it’s human nature to desire success…to be a “winner”…and no sense of emergency because those “in-the-know” have experienced this before. 

            Yes, our 2010 Hugo Football Buffaloes are 0 and 7.  But this team, while being unique in its make-up as far as individuals are concerned, is still a Hugo Buffalo football team.  Just like the 1923 football team, the 1962 team, the 1978 team, the 1983 team (and we stunk pretty good), and the 2005 team…this team IS “The Hugo Buffaloes!”  It really makes no difference, other than personal desire, that this team started 0 and 7 or 7 and 0. 

           In 20 years, when the kids that make up this team reflect, they will find fond memories.  Ask Hack Welch and Joey Brindley of the early-60’s Buffaloes…they were far from involved in winning seasons…when they talk Hugo Buffalo football you witness a love for the game and the immense PRIDE of being a Hugo Buffalo.  Talk to our current head-coach, Courtney Lattimore, who, at the time, suffered through an 0 and 10 season as a Hugo Buffalo but went on to play college and professional football in the arena league.  Talk to some of our assistant-coaches, Jimmy Wyrick and Jeff Jones.  The experience, all of it – good and bad – is what builds character for many and instills that feeling of PRIDE that may not become evident for years to come. 

           Our Hugo Football teams are Buffaloes, the band and cheerleaders and flag corps are Buffaloes.  All the students are Buffaloes, the faculty, the coaches, the announcers, and all the support individuals are Buffaloes.  Those of us in the stands, at the coffee shops being arm-chair quarterbacks and coaches are Buffaloes.  Those of you, who read the paper and listen to the radio and pay a little more attention to a piece about our team, are Buffaloes!  Guess what…we started this season 0 for 7…SO WHAT!  I seriously doubt anyone is TRYING to be 0 and 7, everyone involved wants success…sometimes success comes in other forms and sometimes it escapes us no matter how hard we try.  Let’s get behind our Hugo Football Buffaloes and work to ensure that one essential element is retained: Pride – BUFFALO PRIDE!

The Future of Property Rights and the Impact of Hyper-Environmentalism in America?

October 6, 2010

There exists a story, so horrific, coming out of West Australia that every single person who wishes to remain free must be made aware of. This story, like the personal firearm confiscation act of a past Australian government, is the crystal clear omen of things to come here in America.

 I simply urge you to take the 16 minutes and watch these two videos on YouTube which tell the story better than I could ever hope to:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgFPDcPr5yA

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WgUJLSbDIM&NR=1

 South Australia Senator, Cory Bernardi, has taken up the issue but the hyper-environmentalism lobby that permeates the Australian Department of Environment and Conservation is not subject to political or public oversight (sound familiar?). The central-planning government currently in place, along with this over-reaching, unaccountable, bureaucracy is literally STEALING productivity from producers and property from lawful property owners. After years of kow-towing to pencil-pushing know-nothings, years of bureaucratic red-tape, filing for government licenses, meeting regulatory standard after regulatory standard, public notices, license revocations, contracts, and outright government deceit…the GOVERNMENT has changed the rules in mid-stream.

Business…producers, the drivers of an economic machine…cannot function in such an environment. The hoops that this family has jumped through, at the whim of government to satisfy government, was for NOTHING! Listen and watch this story carefully, you will see and hear eerie similarities to what has been occurring and what is likely to occur here in America. Government intervention of this magnitude will ALWAYS have deadly repercussions…no exceptions!

Below is a link to a site which chronicles the events surrounding the Thompson’s saga. This link goes directly to Senator Bernardi’s statement in Parliament on 28 Sept. 2010. http://joannenova.com.au/2010/09/thompsons-part-9-senator-cory-bernardi-speaks-out-in-parliament/

I am advised the Thompson family have broken no law, they have no outstanding environmental infringements, they have done everything asked of them by government, they are popular in their local community and nearby towns, and yet they still face ruin. They run a profitable business—or they ran a profitable business. But an over-officious and what would appear to be an overzealous government bureaucracy has cut the profitability of their business and their ability to access any capital.” Senator Cory Bernardi to Parliament, 6:54 pm 28 Sept. 2010

Kaye Beach and I will be interviewing Senator Cory Bernardi on Axxiom for Liberty Radio on October 22, 2010 6:00 to 8:00 pm. www.ruleoflawradio.com.

One last note: The Janet Thompson in this story is from my hometown of Hugo, Oklahoma.  We went to high-school together.  I know her sisters, her brother, her parents.  This family is a model of citizenship (Aussie or American) and service to community…impeccable graciousness and fortitude.  As we say here: They’re just good people

She suggests writing an e-mail to Colin Barnett, Premier of West Australia:

The Honourable Colin Barnett, Premier of W.A.
