What is barter? Barter is the exchange of goods or services for other goods or services without using money. The site banner you see on this blog is a perfect example of bartering. Our friend Barry, who owns Webfinity Design, built the banner in exchange for us linking to his site on this blog which we’re doing in this article. Wikipedia explains barter as the following:
Barter is a method of exchange by which goods or services are directly exchanged for other goods or services without using a medium of exchange, such as money. It is usually bilateral, but may be multilateral, and usually exists parallel to monetary systems in most developed countries, though to a very limited extent. Barter usually replaces money as the method of exchange in times of monetary crisis, when the currency is unstable and devalued by hyperinflation.
“Anything you say CAN and WILL be used against you in a court of law!” That statement (Miranda Warning) is something we ALL need to be aware of when dealing with law enforcement. Yes, you may truly be 100% innocent and not in the least bit involved in any type of crime, but if you begin to speak to law enforcement you may possibly incriminate yourself without even knowing it. Don’t be afraid to assert your 5th amendment rights and REMAIN SILENT!
A lot of states have what is known as “stop-and-identify” and/or “Obstruction” statues, so please educate yourself on your state law to know when you’re required, by law, to identify yourself to law enforcement.
We often hear the words “To protect and to serve” whenever we hear anyone speaking about the role of police officers. Unfortunately, those words are a complete fallacy. Not only is that notion a fallacy, but the supreme court has ruled that the police have no legal duty to protect individuals and stated the responsibility of police as follows:
“Police do not have a duty to protect you as an individual, but to protect society as a whole.”
Judge Andrew Napolitano gives a speech from the heart about freedom and from where our rights come. The Judge explains the hard core truth about the Constitution, how intrusive the patriot act is and why we must fight to regain and retain our freedoms.
