The Free Man's Creed

Monday, May 27, 2013 by Don MacIntyre

I believe in personal freedom. I am the sole owner of my body, mind and spirit.

I will not be numbered, indexed, monitored or cataloged.

I have an eternal responsibility to my own soul to break all bonds ever forged upon me by force. I will repudiate and remove from my life all links in any chain of authoritarian ownership or control.

I believe in freedom for others. I will never initiate any act of force or fraud against another.

To be fully human and fully moral we must be free to dream, strive, explore, experiment, think, travel, believe, speak, risk, fail, succeed, defend ourselves, make choices, accept responsibility, and grow. Always to grow.

I will reach for the future. The only barrier I will permit to stand between my soul and the stars is time.

From Reason's Hit&Run Blog....

As you move slowly and shoe-lessly through the security lines at your airport, trying to get home to your loved ones for Christmas, the Department of Homeland Security would like you to remember that you would be dead if it weren't for them and their $50-odd billion a year. So give them some gratitude and dive into their "DHS' Progress in 2011: By the Numbers."

Who's not consistent?

Monday, December 12, 2011 by Don MacIntyre

I know I don't post regularly. I'll go months, sometime a year where I don't post anything. My work life doesn't exactly consist of normal business hours and doesn't allow me to dedicate the amount of time I would like to to this blog. And, I have to make time for my personal life. This blog is important to me, and I promise this: If I see, hear, or read something that I find interesting or funny politically; I will definite post something on it.

Until next time,
