Damn your Eyes, I’m an American Citizen!!

I am compelled to write the following facts. First I would like for you to read this post. When he had finished, come on back because I have a few words on the matter.

If you have read any of my posting, you'll realize that I have decided to turn activist, again. I have a big problem with illegal searches and illegal seizures. Here are some more stories I would like for you to read....

Okay this is for you, and I urge you to copy and print the following, and put it in your billfold or purse. If you are absolutely sure you have nothing to hide, I'm talking about illegal guns, illegal drugs, illegal aliens, illegal weapons such as switchblades etc., I urge you to inform the government functionary of the following....

I hereby invoke and refuse to waive all of the following rights allotted to me by the Constitution of the United States of America:
I invoke and refuse to waive my Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. Please do not ask me any questions.

I invoke and refuse to waive my Sixth Amendment right to an attorney of my choice. Please do not ask me any questions without my attorney present.

I invoke and refuse to waive all rights regarding the Supreme Court ruling in Miranda vs. Arizona 384 U.S. 436. Please do not ask me any questions or make any comment to me about this decision.

I invoke and refuse to waive my Fourth Amendment right to protection from unreasonable searches and seizures. I do not consent to any search or seizure of myself, my property, or any property in my possession. Please do not ask me about my
ownership interest in any property. I do not and will not consent to this contact with you. If I am not presently under arrest or under
investigatory detention, please inform and allow me to leave.

Any statement, or alleged consent, will be given in response to questioning and demand that is under strict protest, complete
duress and in submission to a claim of lawful authority to force me to provide information.

Specific notice to immigration officers: I am a citizen of the United States of America. My journey did not originate in a foreign country or border equivalent space (international airport). I have not been to the border. Do not ask me any further questions.

Please also note: the above, as stated by the Supreme Court, our rights and privileges as guaranteed by the Constitution, and anyone (including Judges)  who knowingly violates those rights may be civilly and criminally liable under several federal statutes. Please see:  United States code, title 18 section 241 (conspiracy against rights), and section 242 (depravation of rights under color of law); title 42  section 1983 - section 1986 (civil rights).

That certainly is specific, isn't it? I would also urge you to find, copy and print the following.....

Now friends, I believe in law and order, as much as the next person. And I'm sorry if you disagree, but LEOs have started to go way too far in the wrong direction. When I, or my friends, start getting deprived of our rights, it pisses me off. You may think me radical, but remember, I am from Texas and we have a history of not getting along with authorities we don't think are right. Why hassle someone who is not a terrorist, drug runner, or illegal alien type?  I think it could be a power-trip of some sort. Isn't that possible?

 I better listen up to a little West Texas inspired music. You know what a mean?

Damn good copy but these England dudes

junior brown is my buddy

This drought is really causing some problems. I live on the lakefront and have a boat stall whittled into my property. I also have a 1/2 Husky and 1/2 Chow escape artist. As you can tell from the picture, I assembled what I considered a clever dog-wall. He came down there and watch me doing it, and when it was finished, ol' Blue was nowhere to be found. In the picture, the lake level is usually up to where the rake is. (he returned later, but he didn't spill the beans on how he escaped) The Lake that I live on, is normally constant level. We have not had enough water to even bring it up to level. I've lived here for 25 years, and I have never seen anything like this. God? When are we going to get some rain?

I suppose I have ranted and raved enough for today. I appreciate you for being here. If you don’t already know, it means a lot. Thank you!



  1. Hi Michael Ultra. Nice songs. Bad Man's Blunder by the Kingston Trio would have fit nicely in there somewhere.

    As for the other part, the waving of the bloody flag for the search and seizure issues, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

    Some of my ancestors on the Native American side of the family tree tried to fight on after the battle was lost, though most didn't. The ones who didn't have descendants out there on the Rez. They don't admit it, but the ancestors who accepted reality for what it is are the reason they exist. They stir a lot of dust [justifiably from some perspectives] about dying for causes, but they aren't raiding off-the-Rez towns or military bases.

    Some of the other side of my family tree tried to keep fighting after Lee surrendered at Appromattox. Went out robbing trains and banks until they were killed or caught. But most of my ancestors accepted defeat, said the Pledge of Allegience and a few generations later fought for the side that burned the houses, crops, killed the livestock of their parents and grandparents.

    In my view the war you're talking about in your post is lost.

    But a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

  2. No war Jules. According to the Bill of Rights, number 1 says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." We have rights and need to stand up and complain when they get abused. I think the government goes to far on a lot of our rights. I dated a TSA girl and she was regularly in meetings to teach the agents how to go over the line. Assumed consent and implied consent and other garbage like that. I understand when it comes to airline security. I am speaking of outright abuse and lack of common sense by agents that should know better. Anyone who doesn't agree are called scum-bags and are certainly profiled. Just saying...(because someone has to!) Put this rant with the stealing of our social security.

  3. Hi Michael Ultra. I'm familiar with the Bill of Rights. If I gave the impression I'm not it wasn't deliberate.

    You and I might not be able to find enough common ground to be able to understand what the other is saying. I don't know. But there's no reason we should expect to agree about it, no obvious gain if we do.

    Maybe that's the core of our differences in viewpoint. I don't believe there's a single person in power anywhere on the planet gives a damn what I think or don't think. And I don't mind.

    Thanks for your visits to my blog and your comments.

  4. J, my Friend~I am afraid you are right about people in power. I think it's the old root of all evil, isn't it.
    I started today's writing from reading your blog. Then I read Frann's and Tffnguy's. The stories are so familiar. I actually think we communicate pretty well.

  5. Maybe I should never go back to Terlingua. Last time I was waved through the check point.

  6. DD~I have been in and out of Mexico many times and through check-points hundreds of times. Never had a problem. It depends, I guess.

  7. I am sure going to use some of the advice for dealing with our over aggressive BP!!

  8. frann~smart gal! Just be sure you are 'clean'. Those guys have rules, too.
