I got this from a friend who is on the email alert list for NAGR. I found it posted in OCDO Washington forum from a month ago. It seems the story originated around June 2009, I don't know how we have missed it here on the Louisiana board.

Robert Baillio: Well...I don't know if my phone broke up or what but you're saying that...As a citizen...when I am stopped by a police officer I don't have any rights?
Mayor Cedric Glover: Your rights at that point, Mr. Baillio, have been suspended. That's part of what makes the powers and duties of a...in fact it's one of the things that I say to each and every one of the police officers who graduates from the Shreveport Police Academy since I've been mayor.

Fat asshole. Typical. When you're stopped by the cops, your rights begin. But with his GED, this pos can't be expected to know that. What's his experience? Car wash or garbage truck?

Well in a sense, he's right, isn't he?

Your right to liberty is certainly suspended until the cop decides to let you go.

Doesn't mean you don't have the right, but for the duration of the traffic stop, it's disabled. This is part of my problem with the existence of cops, government, authority, etc., but it's the way it is, as far as I can see.

Not saying your mayor isn't a jackass, I'm sure he probably is.

IF you're suspected of a crime then your rights are not suspended per say. This is why they remind you of your rights by reading your Miranda warning that starts "You have the right to remain silent." Your rights as a human being can not be surrendered or suspended, though crotch stains like this tub of poop think differently.

Even with all the effort we are putting forth, we still will not affect major change, untill we start change within our own families. The average family is being taught a value system that does not recognize the right to carry along with a host of other issues that work counter to a society that respects individual rights over the rights of the State or the Federal Government.

In short, Families are all screwed up. Men letting everything under the sun advocate their God given authorty and responsibilities as men.

Your real battle is the hearts and minds of the public, i.e. the families. No longer does, "Father know best", etc. Families are being raised much like the Europeans raise their families. See where they are? This is where we are heading fast.

We need to take a good hard look at how we are raising our families and what our values are based on. I'm not looking to get into a very broad discussion about everything that was wrong or right a hundred years ago, but we would need to almost go back to a lot of the principles that were in place back then.

Don't see it happening until men take a good hard look at themselves and act accordingly.

This saying by one of our president's, pretty much sums it up:

'We have staked the whole of all our political Institutions upon the capacity of mankind for Self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to The Ten Commandments of God.' ~ James Madison, 4[suP]th[/suP] President of The United States of America

"Upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God" You either have been raised to get this or you have not. And all the talk in the world will not get you to understand nor tolive bythese values, unless you have been given the tools to understand and teachthem when you were young. So when people, get elected into "authority" positions and they don't have the up bringing to live and govern based on these principlies, then what principlies will they govern by?

You will have what you have in most major cities and pretty much everywhere now, that is a form of Tyranny. A suppressive and over reaching tyrannical goverment with leaders that laugh at what you think are "your rights". Sounds harsh, yeah, but its the truth!

Which leads me to another saying:

When they get piled upon one another in large cities as in Europe, they will become corrupt as in Europe." --Thomas Jefferson

You either get this or you don't!

Tomahawk,

Good, I will get back to you with an explanation that is worthy of your request. And are you a religious man?
Not particularly.

In my conversations with others who are interested in liberty-related issues, I have had arguments with some, usually christians,who told me our rights come from God.

I told them that if that is the only basis for their belief in unalienable rights, than it won't resonate with anyone who doesn't share their beliefs.

The usual response to that was, "So what! I know I'm right and so does God!", which completely misses the point and just sounds arrogant.

You're not trying to convince people that god gave them their rights, you're trying to convince them that they have rights, and that those rights belong to them because they are human beings, regardless of religion.

That's why I was intrigued by Locke and others who wrote of natural rights, the philosophical position that it is in human nature to prosper best only when our rights are respected, that our rights come to us as a function of our existence in the natural world. Basically, we are wired to be free.

The beauty of Natural Rights theory is that it works whether you are religious or not; to the Christian, nature is God's creation and thus rights come to us from God because he made the natural world the way he did. To the athiest, rights come to us because of whatever natural forces led us to be the way we are, because the universe works under a set of rational rules, and humans are capable of being rational when we act responsibly and think. Locke himself was a Christian, some of the Founders were Diests.

If you can get people to respect unalienable rights, you have won. You are now free to live life the way you want, including a Christian life if that's what you choose. The United States is (for now) the freest nation in the world, and it's also the most religious. Nations where religion is tied to the government are usually oppressive and the people have no freedom and go through the motions when it comes to worshipping the state religion.

Well, I've read your reply. And I thank you for your response. You seem to have some reasoning that you feel is correct. At least it sounds as though you think it is correct.

You said, Not particularly. Don't really know how to move forward with that. Is that a yes or no? That answer leaves one to draw aconclusion that you may be, but maybe not. Not too sure are you?

Are you trying to hedge your bet? :) !!

Really don't know where to start in regard to a real thoughtful discussion regarding my email and how you replied.

One may choose to belief whatever they like; but one cannot mistake this country's founders being Christian Men and thereby building this great country on biblical principles. There is no doubt that this nation became what is was because of it's founder's beliefs. You sir, meaning no disrespect, enjoy these freedoms and thefruits thereof because of these very beliefs and teachings that came from the Bible. Because ofsocialism, which has taken over our great country through the Democraticparty under the guise of "diversity", the very foundation of this greatness is being eroded away as we speak and live. The founders of this once great and Godly country had it right when they wrote the Consitution. The mold was set by the belief's of the framers. They were very, very clear.........this consitution and government, or WE THE PEOPLE is wholly for a religious people and let's be clear, they meant Christianity. And without that structure of belief to hold it together, to give it a living, life giving power, (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) make no mistake, it will fail. Because we have strayed away from these belief's, and our families no longer teach that which is what made us great, weno longer have proper discriminating abilities. We have become a nation ofsuch "diversified idealogies",we no longer function as a people as the founders envisioned, thereby renderingthe Consititution inaffectual, no longer being able to move us forward as a people,losing our directionas a nation.

I don't care a about a person'scolor, height, riches, nor short hair, or long hair. I care about what our framers said and what they believed. Like I said, you will either get it or you will not!

When you embrace liberal "Diversity", you embrace socialism!



In short Sir, you may be knowingly or unknowingly,the product of this effort,"socialist diversity"which is our country's demise!

I am commenting on the Tomahawk's entire post, rather than just on his answer that he is not particularly religious, hence the ellipsis (three dots).

Actually, many of them were Diests.

And I'm not sure what this has to do with the topic, anyway, since we all agree we have rights. The question is, does a cop have the power to suspend your rights?

I argue that, yes, anyone with sufficient force can compel you to stop exercising your rights. A police officer arrests you, your right to liberty has been suspended until you are released.

I broke the story about Mayor Glover on the radio show right after it happened. Robert Balio (the man who was stopped) is a friend.

I talked with the Mayor about it. He's the typical shout-you-down politician. He held to the "your rights have been suspended" line.

I said, "So, during the civil rights march, when police chief Bull Connor released the dogs on the marchers, he was legal to do that because their rights had been suspended?"

He didn't much care for that.

Just remember, folks, these arsehats don't appoint themselves to power, stupid Amerikans ELECT them.

Tom, what prevents such a person from being ARRESTED or INDICTED ? After all, why should HE get a free pass? If any of us violated the law, would we still be strutting around BRAGGING about it?

Repeat after me: "we'd all be better off with NO government at all."
