American popular & political culture insists on dividing people up into groups-then assigning a separate value to different groups.


Parking/entrance pass for federal lands you paid for the same as the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan:

Regular people- $80 annual pass

Military- free

Seniors- $80 Lifetime pass $20 annual pass

Annual 4th Grade Pass
Cost: Free (valid for the duration of the 4th grade school year though the following summer (September-August)

The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass Series


Selective Service registration for men only.


Scholarships that are awarded only to women.


Women’s colleges


Prohibition of alcohol sales to adults age 18-20.


Federal support for Women-Owned Businesses


Certainly, Americans do not live in a free and honest society.

Both major political parties are OK with treating 18-20 year old adults as second class citizens.

Sales restrictions on alcohol, marijuana, tobacco and firearms are in place for 18-20 year old adults.

Is there any state where recreational marijuana laws remove prohibition for adults at age 18?

While the troops were deployed, federal law was signed prohibiting the sale of tobacco products to adults age 18-20. Can elected officials of any party or any member of the press help us to understand the militarized version of freedom here?

Liberty And Justice For All?


I have seen comments saying Twitter is a private business and free to set its own rules. Does that also apply to the florist or bakery that does not want to create a product for a gay marriage ceremony?

Does that also apply to a tavern that wants to allow indoor smoking?

If I ran a bakery-

Store policy:

We do quality cakes for all occasions-no customer application/background check required.

Growing numbers of happy customers and building our positive reputation is our goal.

Please tell your friends & contact us at any time.

In a free and honest society customers would support or walk away from the businesses of their choosing.


How Do The Troops Defend The Constitution?

Not asking about the oath of enlistment. Asking about what happens after the oath has been taken.

When the US Armed Forces are sent to Lebanon, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Vietnam, etc.-how is that defending the US Constitution-or our rights and freedoms, or our physical security?

Look for newspeople and school teachers to ask zero questions in these areas.


The idea is to live in a free and honest society.
