1. ITS CREATOR BEGAN WITH A MAPLE SUGAR BUSINESS BEFORE MOVING INTO CHOCOLATES AND CANDY.

Clarence Crane was the son of a maple sugar producer in Cleveland, Ohio. He worked with his father until 1903, when he struck out with his own maple sugar business, which became one of the largest producers of maple sugar in the world. In 1909 Crane sold the maple sugar business but continued to work for the company as a salesman. Two years later, he opened the Queen Victoria…

Mike Vanderboegh founder of the III% prepares for the other side

“If you consider yourself to be III% it is because of Mike Vanderboegh from Sipsey street irregulars the founder of the movement

When a lot of us in the patriot movement thought that we were alone we stumbled across SSI and found out that in fact, we were not

Mike voiced, and eloquently I might say, what was on the mind of millions of concerned Americans

He managed to take his thoughts and convictions and turn them into a national movement

The III% went from obscurity into a burgeoning liberty movement that has become a juggernaut

The principles of the III% will not pass just because Mike does

He instilled in many the thought that no matter how small the number ,we could still fight if we so willed it

Mike is now in the last few final weeks of this life as all of us someday will be

But we could only hope that in our end we could accomplish as much as he did

Farewell and hats off to you Mr. Vanderboegh, you will be missed”

GEORGIA GOVERNOR CHANGES HOLIDAY’S NAME

“So why now, 150 years later, did the Governor of Georgia decide to change the name from Confederate Memorial Day to “State Holiday”? Governor Deal was facing scrutiny from liberals due to what they deemed Georgia’s “embracing” of Confederate symbolism in the wake of the malicious and horrific attack by a suspected white supremacist at an African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina.”

Give Me Liberty

This is from Patriot UpDate.

Governor Nathan Deal has lost his mind and his way from the path Conservatism. 

If the state of Georgia has the ability to issue a recall  it is time to fire Nathan Deal.

Confederate Memorial Day will now be known as "State Holiday" in GA. Confederate Memorial Day will now be known as “State Holiday” in GA

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has once again stepped away from his constituents’ conservative roots, this time with the tampering of a statewide holiday.

The fourth Monday in April has, for 150 years, been considered Confederate Memorial Day, a day in which Georgians can celebrate the sacrifice made by rebel soldiers during the war between the states.  Georgia is one of many states observing such a holiday, but the peach state’s role in the Civil War was absolutely gargantuan.

Atlanta, not then the capitol of GA, was – and still is to this day – the transportation hub of the entire southern United States…

LESSONS IN LOGIC: Gender Does NOT Refer To Sex

Before the creation of political correctness, people didn’t refer to matters of sex in terms of ‘gender.’ This is because our society was still sane. We understood that you either had a ‘stem on the apple,’ or you didn’t. There was no in between because nature didn’t make us that way. But today, Face Book has ‘identified’ 51 types of ‘gender!‘

Like mathematics, Language is a form of logic.  This means, like mathematics, Language is governed by a known set of rules.  In order for mathematics to work, the rules which govern it cannot chang…

Evade and Avoid … vs. Harass and Collect

Avoiding the po po is the only way to ensure that YOU are safe! Here in #NorfolkVa they are very militarized – force searches of vehicles and the dumbies here do not say NO! While radar detectors are “illegal” in Virginia it doesn’t stop the use of them by typically law-abiding citizens — but this is another example of the government forcing WE THE PEOPLE to break the laws to have our FREEDOM!

The relevant thing is that on the scene – your life in the balance – resistance is not only futile, it is unlawful. That most basic of all human rights – the right to defend yourself – is a nullity when it comes to interacting with Enforcers.

Standing up to bullies is usually the best way to end the bullying. But what if you can’t do that?Winston Smith

Legally, I mean.

That’s the dilemma when it comes to dealing with the Enforcers of the Law. No matter what they do to you, “resisting” is not a good idea. Perhaps later, your family will be able to obtain some money as compensation via a wrongful death civil suit against…
