DSC_0084We have been happy to spend money in the local economy for home improvements, maintenance & repairs to include: driveway gravel, lumber, paint, window replacement, carpet cleaning, installation of gutters, pest control, land survey services, riding mower parts, chainsaw service, landscaping plants & materials, roofing repair, tools, etc.

We believe that fewer people will be inclined to do this if the neighborhood appears to be going downhill.

US Border Patrol, Port Angeles, WA-

Port Angeles USBP station- grand opening:

“Jones asked a Peninsula Daily News reporter to interview only Border Patrol personnel selected by the agency and to confine interviews of selected personnel to topics concerning the station’s opening.”

No topics to be discussed unless pre-approved by the agency in question.


Unmanipulated press?

If you run a government operation- these are the reporters you want to see on interview day:

In an emergency- deputies will be away from regular duties while cooking?

MREs work well for emergencies- no need to have deputies spend 2 years trying to get a kitchen up & running.

Another source:

One of our local TV stations recently informed us about Homeland Security gunboats on Puget Sound.

Video: Behind the wheel of the ferry gunboat

This hard-hitting interview was an opportunity to answer most FAQs.

Serious subject matter- covered like an elementary school field trip down to the fire station- except- students might come up with some intelligent or interesting questions at the fire station.

What questions went unasked?

1) How does the gunboat protect the ferry if a bad guy is already onboard? The Washington State Patrol uses dogs to check vehicles at some ferry terminals on some days. Walk-on passengers are not checked at any terminal- at any time.

2) “Terrorists” (If they really are out to get us) can communicate just like teenagers- they can wait in line and ride the ferry just like anyone else. What would stop terrorists from riding the ferry and alerting each other if they see a US Coast Guard escort or Washington State Patrol dogs sniffing cars prior to loading?

3) If a terrorist wanted to get their boat dangerously close to a ferry- they could just put it on a trailer and drive it on- what would prevent this?

4) What stops terror strikes on the days US Coast Guard gunboats are not providing escorts on any given route or Washington State Patrol dogs are not on duty at any given terminal?


Video promoting the drug war-

Another report treating viewers as if they are part of an elementary school field trip:

With drugs streaming into Washington, state turns to National Guard for help


In print:

Our free and independent press recently informed us on Olympic Peninsula US Border Patrol operations.

The article reads like paid advertising or something produced by US Border Patrol public relations.

Most of the photos used in the article were provided by the federal government.

DSC_0008 copyJust days after the nation celebrated Independence- someone gets caught with marijuana at a federal campground inside Washington State.

“A man called KING 5 to say he had pot confiscated and was ticketed while camping with friends. It happened when a ranger came by to check on their campfire. The ranger noticed the group had a small amount of marijuana.
The camper said he purchased it legally, but because he was on federal land the viewer said the pot was confiscated and that he got a $125 ticket.”

“Larry Chambers, a US Forest Service spokesperson says the agency is legally required to enforce federal laws on public lands they manage, even though Washington voters legalized recreational marijuana in November 2012.”

Click here to view authoritarian comments from people who are all about federal law even though they probably were up for celebrating independence on July 4th.

Favorite comment:

“Its federal land. Just like the Military bases.”

Maybe American culture would be easier to understand if all of the US was one giant military base.

It took a constitutional amendment to prohibit the sale of a glass of wine- why no constitutional amendment to authorize a federal war on drugs, drug czar, prohibition of marijuana, etc.

Same country where half time sports announcers remind us that The Troops are fighting undeclared/unwon wars overseas in order to defend your rights and freedoms.
