mushroom farming, fed bullshit

Lavoy's brandAbout TinFoilCowboyHat.com: Inform Yourself. In society, one of the greatest guardians of freedom is truth. Learning more truth can replace worry with knowledge. Hopefully, we’re moving out of an archaic and barbaric era and into a more humane and open era… and that won’t happen without resistance; people addicted to status, power, and control will fight it. With more understanding, we can make better sense of our world, see our options, recognize our obligations, and make better choices on how (or if) we allow it to affect us and our loved ones.

Purpose or Perish "We already know how to feed, clothe, and comfortably house every human being on the planet ~ YES. We have the technology to feed, clothe, and supply energy to an ever-growing population for the next seven billion years. Our problem is not knowledge or resources. There is no actual need to fight over resources." We do not have to buy in to the paradigm of "scarcity" that we are fed by gov't, mainstream lifestyle and society - we can step out of the matrix and embrace the reality of "plenty." Once we realize this, we see that our collective and individual central problem ~ our challenge ~ is simply cooperation. "And this will remain a problem so long as governments control humanity." • Paul Rosenberg, FreemansPerspective • Sep 6th, 2016

Fish Are the Last to Notice the Water A single model of human life has dominated the West for thousands of years. This model is so common that it’s hard to make out at first. Here are its parts:

  • A small minority of men hold a monopoly on making rules everyone else will live by.
  • This minority enforces these rules on everyone else.
  • The minority extracts regular payments from everyone else.
  • This is said to be necessary for protection and justice.
  • The minority fails to provide justice on a daily basis and very often sends the children of the majority to fight in battles to the death.
  • A minority-aligned intellectual class assures the majority that this is the best that can be had and that it has been sanctified by some higher power (gods, ancestors, tradition, reason, experience, progress, or whatever).
  • No one is permitted to escape this model. Those who try are punished as traitors and heretics.
  • FAIL: Wars have continued throughout its entire reign.
  • FAIL: Justice has never been achieved.
  • FAIL: Justice has generally came closest in places away from power centers.
  • FAIL: Human happiness has not noticeably increased.
  • FAIL: Even when science has broken out, it has been recaptured and forced to serve the model.

tyranny VS liberty Wounded Knee. Regardless of your political sway, your stand on issues, or your ideology... it is important to realize that Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscations in US history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people (mostly women, children and elders). What the government refers to as "gun control" is in reality the constitutionally prohibited government control of law-abiding citizens.

No Explanations Needed to Exercise Our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. For one thing, people are ultimately responsible for protecting themselves and those under their care. When an intruder enters your home with the intent to harm your family, the outcome directly affects you. It has no repercussions for the local police department. Courts have ruled that the police are not legally responsible for defending your home and loved ones. But this is a secondary rationale. The Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment because, having recently secured their independence from England, they knew their freedom had only been possible through the use of guns. All governments have a tendency to grow and consolidate power. Very rarely, if ever, do they reduce their authority on their own volition. Whether people are comfortable with the truth or not, the reality is our rights are ultimately preserved either through the use of force or under the threat of violence. Everyone responds to incentives, including governments. A government that knows its citizens have the means to rise up and abolish it if it gets out of line behaves differently than the government which rules over disarmed citizenry who must comply no matter what.

Body Counts: The reason for all the body count conspiracies is because there are so many (bodies).

What Julian Assange and WikiLeaks is Really Doing: WikiLeaks Julian Assangewas designed to hurt power that hides its intentions. The more secretive or unjust an organization is, the more leaks induce fear and paranoia in its leadership and planning. WikiLeaks is the creation of some smart guys who were inspired by Timothy C. May, Eric Hughes, Murray Rothbard, and a few others. Assange describes modern governance as conspiracy. He invokes Teddy Roosevelt, who said, “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.” These networks – the real power behind the apparent power – are WikiLeaks’s actual targets, not the governments they may seem to be addressing. I hope you can see how brilliant the WikiLeaks strategy really is. They’re not reacting after the events, as in exposing dirty laundry. They are acting in advance, disrupting their enemy’s ability to function in the future. More than this will be required to bring our world out of its current barbaric age, but this is a fascinating and important part.

The Dangers of Telling the Truth: Snowden, Assange, and Manning. One of them has been tortured; another is surrounded by armed men and trapped; and the third is hiding ten thousand miles away, in fear for his life. And what were their crimes? Telling the truth. They released the truth about what they saw happening. And the gigantic operations are threatening their lives because they do not want you to know the truth. • Paul Rosenberg, FreemansPerspective •

Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning are treated as terrorists and criminals in U.S., but elsewhere in the world they are celebrated as heroes in the fight against corruption and global surveillance.
From prison where she is serving 35 years, US soldier Chelsea Manning (born Bradley Manning) was convicted in 2013 on charges relating to the Espionage Act for leaking US intelligence and military documents to Wikileaks. Edward Snowden is evading extradition to the US by taking asylum in Russia. He released classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) Italian artist Davide Dormino stands on an empty chair in his installation “Anything to Say?”to journalists revealing the scale of the US government’s global surveillance capabilities. All the while, WikiLeaks editor in chief Julian Assange keeps publishing what governments are really doing while being detained in the Ecuadorian embassy for years. Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning “had the courage to say no to the intrusion of global surveillance and to lies that lead to war. They chose to lose the comfort zone of their lives to tell the truth.” As this struggle continues, the torch for transparency and courage that kindled hearts and has sparked public debate keeps shedding light on the state of the world we live in. A statue recognising the courage of the three whistleblowers stands in Geneva, Switzerland. The Italian sculptor Davide Dormino stands on the empty chair of his installation “Anything to Say?” urging people to follow their example, saying “the fourth chair is empty because it is our chair--take a stand, because your liberty is at stake.” The statues have been on a world tour. • euronews, May 2015 • yournewswire.com August, 2016 •

Personal and Online Privacy: If you have nothing to hide, why do you care? The comeback should be this: Because I value myself. The real value of privacy is not because it allows us to hide things, it’s that privacy allows us to develop independently – according to our own natures. In other words, privacy is an essential tool for personal development.

How Capitalism Can Fix Health Care The cost savings and improvements in health-care quality that can be realized when a physician escapes the crazy system we have now, which people mistakenly think is a free market, are staggering. A mind-blowing interview with Dr. Josh Umbehr, who accepts neither government money nor private insurance, and keeps prices of medical care at a level you'll hardly believe. Dr. Josh Umbehr operates a concierge family practice in Wichita, Kansas, and counsels doctors about making the transition to direct care, bypassing insurance and government, through Atlas.MD. He ran for lieutenant governor of Kansas in 2014 on a ticket with his father, Keen, at the top. (See also IAmDirectCare.com.)

The Shocking 150-Trillion Reason Why the Government Killed Rancher Lavoy Finicum

There's a $150-trillion reason why Rancher Lavoy Finicum was murdered by the U.S. Government. There's also a $150 trillion reason why they detained Rancher Cliven Bundy and tried to destroy his life and the lives of all of his fellow defendants--and a very good reason why the gov't wants them all dead if at all possible. In addition to being one of the first journalists to expose the connection between the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One in January 2016, there's a reason why the U.S. Government held Pete Santilli in jail longer than any other journalist in American history. Some parts of this report may shock you or upset you. Truth about government cover-ups often do that, because when we hear "the rest of the story" we recognize the whole truth when we hear it. By the end of this report, you'll have the answer why Santilli was in jail for 619 days, and you will appreciate that jail did nothing but make him more determined to expose the truth about corruption and criminality within the U.S. Government to the American people.

Keep it All in Perspective. Be Happy.

No one gets out alive; Our purpose is to be part of the solution--in how we live our life--to enjoy it--and how we help others enjoy life, and pass if forward. Knowing the reality of plenty is a mindful decision. Happiness is a state of mind and a choice... [what time is it?]

USA Debt Clock (real time)

We May Be Approaching the Big Financial Reckoning

The national debt will exceed $25 trillion by September 30, 2020. This isn’t some wild conspiracy theory, it's official government projections published February 01, 2018, by the United States Department of Treasury. Not only does the US owe the greatest amount of debt ever accumulated by a single nation in human history, but $25 trillion is larger than every other nation's debts in the world combined. For the past several years, US government has always been able to rely on the usual suspects to loan them money and buy up all the debt, namely – the Chinese, the Japanese, and the Federal Reserve. But now all three of those lenders are out of the game.

  • Interest per Year: $443,833,210,730
  • Interest per Second: $14,074
  • Population: 327,744,186
  • Debt per Citizen: $63,092

Chaos Theory; 2 Essays on Market Anarchy. This book was written to define, explain and defend anarcho-capitalism. The true definition of anarchy is the belief that a state (government) is not necessary, and that all services the state currently performs can best be provided by an anarcho-capitalist open marketplace. This book is terse, very well-written, and an excellent introduction to anarchism. Chaos Theory consists of two essays written by economist Robert Murphy, devoted to explaining how an anarcho-capitalist order CAN provide for
(a) defense and (b) law.
Liberty Classroom “If you can't explain it simply you don't understand it well enough.” Tired of losing arguments with brainwashed ignorance, when you know you're right? Want to innoculate your teenager against lunacy? There’s a myth in America that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and all opinions carry equal weight. But that’s not true. What we are all entitled to is an informed opinion. Many people who debate politics, economics, and social issues do so with little command of the facts. Liberty Classroom ensures your mastery of the unvarnished truth so you can defend your ideas with clarity, accuracy, and rock-solid logic. The distortions and omissions of the political, media, and academic establishments have gone on for a very long time. Liberty Classroom offers a unique opportunity to learn the finer points of non-partisan knowledge and thought from scholars, teachers, writers, and thinkers committed to the truth. Read more here.
