ENSLAVE THE LIBERTY OF BUT ONE
HUMAN BEING AND THE LIBERTIES
OF THE WORLD ARE PUT IN PERIL
William Lloyd Garrison
I know that you would rather hear about my take on the interesting things to do, places to visit, and people of rural Kansas. But since I have taken on the job of giving my views there are things that have to be discussed. Things that the mainstream media and those with vested interests just don't want you knowing about or having an opinion on.
The advantage that technology has done is in the fact that I can give you my opinions without being subject to an editor or organization. It gives me the chance to continue my free lance writing when many publications no longer assign work to free lancers. It is very gratifying to me all those who pick up my stories every week and publish them in their papers.
I hope you all will indulge me in the one time I am going to ask you to take a stand and do something for the good of the country. Freedom is not only bought with the blood of our soldiers. It is each citizen standing up and voicing their opinions and make their elected representatives respond to the health of our Republic.
Tell me what all these agencies of the Federal Government have in common? DEPT. OF AGRICULTURE, RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD, TENNESSEE VALLEY AUTHORITY, OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT, CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION, US STATE DEPARTMENT, US ENERGY DEPARTMENT, NATIONAL PARK SERVICE, BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT, NOAA, US POSTAL SERVICE, AND THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE?
All these departments of the Federal Government as well as around 40 more all have, and maintain Swat Teams. The stories pour in almost every day about a citizen being pulled out of their houses in front of their families being investigated about an alleged or suspected offense. Many times the offenses did not amount to more than a misdemeanor and an allegation.
You have seen the confrontation in Nevada with the team from the Bureau of Land Management. The pictures are now coming in of the destruction of watering facilities and digging up the shot carcasses of cattle that were buried on the ranch. No matter which side you are on in this matter, did a civil dispute warrant the threat to life from a Swat Team?
This is only a fraction of the actions taken by departments of our government daily. Also all of these Federal agencies have been on a spending spree of billions of dollars buying the ammunition and equipment for these teams. Enough demand that the ammunition has become in short supply and the cost has risen dramatically. More ammunition has been purchased by these agencies than has been expended in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Traditionally the FBI, DEA, US Marshals Service, state and Regional law enforcement agencies have Swat Teams and very good ones. The addition of thousands of people to agencies other than these have no business having their own.
What I am asking you to do is to contact you Senators, Representatives, State Senate and Reps. and the Attorneys General Office to pass legislation and rules delegating the traditional agencies the only ones to legitimately have Swat Teams.
These stories have been posted in the Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, and dozens of other publications and web sites as to these facts.
IF YOU DO NOT STAND UP AND DEMAND THIS FROM YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS it may be you for some innocuous perceived infraction whose door is broken down, home and business trashed, and time and money spent proving your innocents.
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY?
