Happy New Year 2015 - Hope and Change

January 1, 2015

Happy New Year from Anarchapulco!

Here was my view last evening as I watched a completely anarchic fireworks display occur.  With absolutely no government involvement private individuals and businesses set off fireworks and shots were fired into the air in complete spontaneous order (captured below in 1080P with a Samsung Galaxy S5 - just click on 'settings' on the bottom YouTube bar to upgrade it to 1080P).  Midnight was struck at the 0:42 second mark of the video.

Cops Can Enforce Non-Existent Laws With Impunity

December 29, 2014

[The following post is by TDV Contributor, Wendy McElroy]

Ignorance of the law is an excuse...if you are a cop. American police no longer need to know what the law says or to enforce it correctly. They can implement a non-existent law with impunity even if it results in the apparent violation of constitutional rights. This may have been apparent to many as a police practice but now it is now officially the law of the land. On December 15, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled on Heien v.

A Vigilante Navidad

December 25, 2014

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the casa,

Pinatas were hung from the bamboo terraza,

Talk of Santa and Jesus swirled by the tree,

But being a vigilante I had to be me,

One after another,

I told them too of whence came these ideas,

They nodded back and offered a Christmas tequila,

As the night carried on and drinks and food were enjoyed,
