Here is a collection of some of the stories that Personal Liberty staffers will be keeping an eye on throughout the day. Click the links for the full stories.

  • Secondary issues surrounding the legalization of recreational pot continue to harsh the liberal Colorado Legislature’s mellow. The same Legislature that uses the 2nd Amendment as toilet paper is now grappling with a bill to help Colorado police (who do still have guns) determine what to do when a motorist is too stoned to drive.

 

  • How the Internet does love polls. More than 10 percent of Americans believe President Barack Obama is the one and only Antichrist, according to this one. The same poll shows about twice as many people believe a UFO really did crash in Roswell, N.M., and that the U.S. government has been hiding the truth.

 

  • The White House may be on lockdown to the general public, thanks to that awful sequester, but Justin Timberlake, Cyndi Lauper, Queen Latifah and The Alabama Shakes get a pass. They and other musicians are putting on some kind of Memphis-themed concert for the President and his wife next week; PBS will broadcast it. No word on whether J.T. will reprise his “D!@% In A Box” “Saturday Night Live” character for the First Family…

 

  • …But the first lady is definitely digging in to this pop culture thing. Michelle Obama didn’t exactly demur when “Entertainment Tonight” asked if husband Barack isn’t an American “sex symbol” in the tradition of other Oval Office studs like JFK and Billy Bob. Mooch told the hoary TV tabloid: “He’s got a little swag, you know?” Oh, we know.

 

  • The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has at last responded to an Oklahoma Senator’s formal request for an explanation of why the department has committed to buying up enough ammunition to wage a 20-year war. Don’t get your hopes up that the curtain’s been pulled back, though; DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano says it’s just a cost-saving effort to buy in bulk. Kind of like Costco, only for hollow-point bullets.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

      FF, sorry, your story of paranoia doesn’t fly. I have debunked this nonsense in other threads… She is not buying “billions or millions of rounds” it was 176K for officers in many areas of law enfocement and when you break it down by which location gets “X” amount of bullets, its no big deal.
      But you need to believe that Obama is gearing for war against “patriots” like yourself don’t you? I wonder why that is?

        Even congress is investigating the purchase of “BILLIONS” of rounds, you sound stupid.

        The Southern Poverty Law Center sent a letter earlier this week to Attorney General Eric Holder and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano urging the government to establish a task force to investigate the supposed domestic terror threat posed by the likes of Alex Jones, We Are Change, Oath Keepers, the Constitution Party, the Tyranny Response Team and thousands of other Americans outside of the orbit of the establishment.
