"Of the roughly two hundred panels, there was virtually nothing on subjects such as the American Revolution, the Civil War, or America's involvement in the two World Wars." ...

"Worse yet, mainstream historians are driven by a pernicious political agenda that seeks to elevate 'group rights' over individual rights. By sanctifying the stories of oppressed and 'marginalized' groups, historians subtly indoctrinate students with the idea that justice and rights are synonymous with one's group identity, be it one's race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation."

"Do you know a tax cheat? Turn him in for fun and profit!"

"There's no shame in ratting on rats. After all, every buck they hide from Uncle Sam ultimately means more tax for the rest of us. You can justifiably stake the moral high ground by exposing these shirkers, especially if they've been cheating you out of child support or rubbing their shiny new Jag in your face. That's the fun part."

"Now about that profit part. If you provide sufficiently detailed information on a tax cheat to the Criminal Investigation unit of the Internal Revenue Service, you may receive up to 15 percent of the amount recovered in taxes and penalties (but not interest) as a tip for your tip."

"It just got more expensive for rural Clay County residents to buy a handgun."

"Starting Tuesday, the Clay County Sheriff’s Department will charge a $10 fee to help defray costs from doing background checks on rural Clay citizens who buy handguns, said Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist."

"Since 1999, Clay County has run about 590 handgun-related background checks."

"Bergquist estimates each check costs the county about $40 in time and labor or in total $23,600 since 1999."

-------
So let's get this straight. The county is using money taken from the taxpayers to pay for expensive, intrusive and unconstitutional infringements on their rights. However, it hasn't stolen enough. Ergo, it will steal yet more money from law abiding citizens, who want to purchase a gun, in order to continue infringing on their rights. Is this bureaucratic logic?

Funny how this alleged self-defense expert considers screaming an effective self-defense technique against an assailant, but not a firearm.
