The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

Detroit Free Press editor loses mind, writes column calling for Republican legislators to be murdered


Two years ago, Stephen Henderson won a Pulitzer Prize. I’ll let you decide what you think that says about the state of journalism, especially as you consider what he wrote late last week. Henderson, the editorial page editor of the Detroit Free Press (and a Facebook friend of mine, at least as I type this), has become increasingly hysterical in the past year - seeing racism behind almost every perceived societal ill and ascribing to conservative policymakers not just mistaken thinking but, invariably, an intent to hurt people.
But his column of this past Saturday took the cake. A little background:
Henderson and his Free Press colleagues, who love teachers’ unions, hate charter schools. Last year the Free Press published an entire series bashing charter schools and setting up a series of editorials denouncing the whole idea that they should exist at all. Charter schools, of course, are state-funded public schools that function independent of school districts and often are not unionized. They have to be chartered by a university, and their purpose is to provide an alternative for children who would otherwise be trapped in failing traditional schools.
(Two bits of disclosure before I continue: 1. I occasionally contribute columns to the rival Detroit News. 2. For two years I served on the board of a charter school, including the period when the Free Press was running its anti-charter school series.)
This is important as background because Michigan’s Republican-controlled Legislature is working through the difficult job of crafting a bailout for the horrendously managed Detroit Public Schools - a bill that will likely include governing reforms that Democrats hate, as do their allies at the Free Press editorial page. Henderson and company are upset that Republicans want the DPS to change its ways, but they’re not prepared to bring the hammer down on charters.
How upset is Henderson about this? Well . . . pretty upset:
We really ought to round up the lawmakers who took money to protect and perpetuate the failing charter-school experiment in Detroit, sew them into burlap sacks with rabid animals, and toss them into the Straits of Mackinac.
  That’s harsh. Maybe.
  But isn’t that what the Romans or Greeks or some other early practitioners of democracy used to do with solicitous and unprincipled public officials?
The Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto notes how rich this is coming from the media establishment that is horrified by the things Donald Trump says. Indeed it is, but even most of the liberal media establishment isn’t calling for Republicans to be killed just because they pass school reform bills the left doesn’t like. In that respect, Henderson is a trailblazer.
And maybe he is ahead of the curve. If you observe the political class (and that includes the establishment media), you’ll notice that they admit to believing things once they believe it’s publicly acceptable to do so. Ten years ago they would not have advocated gay marriage, even if they privately thought it was OK, because they didn’t think the public would accept their saying such a thing. Five years ago, it would have been unheard of to favor sending bakery owners to sensitivity training for declining to bake a cake - even though these committed newsroom liberals probably believed in the sanctity of their own domain that it was perfectly justified.
Today, they perceive that cultural attitudes are more willing to accept their fascist tendencies, so they express them a little more openly. In the liberal ivory towers of the Free Press, fantasies about Republicans being mauled by wild animals and thrown off bridges are probably commonly shared. But actually write it in the paper? Not unless you think the public is ready for that sort of thing.
I guess Stephen Henderson decided it was time to take the leap. And if someone like me calls him out for it, hey, I’m easy enough to dismiss as a white racist from the suburbs. I hope those burlap sacks are being stitched by union labor, and that they’re hauling the would-be murder victims up to Mackinac in UAW-made cars. Steve can only take so much of this garbage!
