Taking Pictures or Video at TV or Movie Sets on Public Property is NOT a Crime

Filed under: Principles — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:16 PM (21:16)

I saw this post on Craigslist about a month ago —

Here’s the text of the post (Craigslist normally deletes posts 45 days after they’re put up) —

It is not illegal to take video or pics of movie shoots as long as you are doing from public property. Don’t let them try and tell you youre violating copyright laws because you cannot copyright real life. PINAC Photography Is NOT A Crime[1]. That is Robert Duh Niro in The Comeback Trail.

Here’s the embedded video from the post —

Someone that looks like De Niro can seen standing to the left of the older orange car on the left side of the video.

It should be noted that not only was the photographer taking the picture from public property (somewhere in the Downtown area of Albuquerque), but that the set itself also seems to have been located on public property.

Someone needs to tell the producers and locations managers that if they don’t want the general public taking pictures or video of their stars or the set, then they should not use public streets as their set.

Just because you flash some cash in front of some Political Classholes, that doesn’t mean that you get to have exclusive use of public property.

Mike Blessing 2:54pm

I publicly asked you what your qualifications are.

As for salary, that’s dependent on the experience, talents, etc., as well as Party’s finances.

Without seeing a resume or CV from you, the salary is ZERO.

As for the Party’s fundraising plans and fiscal status, I’m not at liberty to disclose that to anyone who isn’t a full dues-paying, pledge-signing member in good standing.

Michael Thompson 2:57pm

I do not discuss my professional qualifications over a social media site. How unprofessional of you to even ask. Never mind about the finances. I can find it on my own. It is public record.

OK, have a nice life then.

Team Hillary Spews Yet Again

Filed under: Humor, Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:59 PM (17:59)

No, that isn’t the actual Hillary Clinton for President campaign bus.

But maybe it SHOULD be Her Majesty’s official stagecoach.

Hillary’s performance as a U.S. Senator and Secretary of State was bad enough – the above picture sums up her “public service” rather nicely.

So does the next bit –

Remember this scene from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation ?

The reality in Lawrenceville, Georgia doesn’t seem to be far from that clip –

Gateway Pundit: Figures. Hillary Bus Caught Dumping Sh*t on Highway (VIDEO)

WND: Hillary bus caught illegally dumping poop in street

CBS-46 WGCL-TV video clip on reddit

One wonders if Christian de la Rosa (the local TV reporter on the scene) will soon be dead found after having “committed suicide” from being shot in the back of the head several times, from different angles. Or killed via an “accident” at the local gym.

For what it’s worth, maybe Donald Trump might get some mileage out of this incident for a few days, but does anyone really expect any significant legal ramifications from this for Team Hillary?

Seriously, folks?

If any of us Joe Sixpack types did that sort of thing, we would be looking at hefty federal-, state-, and local-level fines (at least 10,000), jail or prison time, a felony conviction, being unhireable for years, that sort of thing.

If anything happens to Team Hillary, it will most likely fall upon the bus driver and campaign crew of the bus. Any senior staff involved will most likely skate on this one.

Of course, I’m just guessing here, but if the past is any indicator – the private home-based server, Benghazi, Rosatom, Libya, Syria, the DNC emails, Vince Foster, Whitewater, the 1994 White House health care task force, interactions with George Soros – Hillary and her senior staff won’t have to give up the cocktail party circuit one bit.

Yeah, I know what the Hillzillers will say – “She didn’t tell them to do that! You can’t hold her responsible for that!”

Why not?

If anyone is a supporter of third-party liability to get at parties with deep pockets, it’s Hillary.

Just ask the gun industry – she’s been talking about repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act for a while now.

It just goes to show, you might be able to take Hillary out of the corruption, but you can’t get the corruption out of Hillary.

For the record, NO, Hillary is NOT a “wonderful public servant,” despite whatever you’ve heard on CNN. For anyone who says that Hillary has “no criminal intent,” I defy you to cite ten (10) times in the last twenty years when she’s acted WITHOUT criminal intent (the intention of taking from others without their consent, etc.).

Never Been to Ephrata, PA, But . . .

Filed under: Frustrations, Life — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:02 PM (18:02)

After I finished my shift at the day job, I stopped by the nearest Circle K gas station / convenience store for a fountain drink — a “Polar Pop,” they call it.

It’s all of 0.95 in total, including GRT.

Imagine my surprise when the clerk tells me my debit / credit card was declined.

Anyway, I had a spare ∅1 note to cover it, but still . . .

So I get home and log into my Nusenda account. That’s when I discover that my card had been hacked, or cracked, or whatever.

Apparently, Nusenda locked out my account because some asswipe in Ephrata, Pennsylvania decided to help himself (herself?) to ∅90 worth of goodies at the local Wal-Mart, using my account to pay for it all.

I haven’t been to my old stomping grounds (about 50 miles east of Ephrata) in 21 years and change. When I did live in Pennsylvania, I never had a reason to go any part of Lancaster County. So I’m guessing that the perpetrator was just using some random card number obtained from the internet or whatever, which just happened to be mine.

May his / her genitals rot until his / her dying day.

Spam, Spam and More Spam

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:04 PM (18:04)

Another bit of spam circulated to me from the infrared-emitting meat-puppet (R) in the Billingsley “vs.” Bregman turd-polishing contest commonly referred to as “the U.S. Senate race” :

9/27/2014 6:26 AM:

From the Weh campaign, Albuquerque

“Why is long-time entrenched career politician Tom Udall running negative campaign ads? Because he doesn’t want you to know the facts.

Udall’s new attack ad today claims we want to deny seniors their healthcare. Who is he kidding?

He’s the only candidate in this race that voted to cut Medicare by $716 billion when he cast his deciding vote for ObamaCare! He cast a deciding vote to rob Medicare to help pay for it. “Tom Foolery” at its best!

So the GOP plan to “support health freedom” is to complain about Obama’s 21st century scheme of medical national socialism by saying it will take away from Lyndon Johnson’s 1965 scheme of medical national socialism?

They do know that Lyndon Johnson was a Democrat? One of the people that they say they’re against, correct?

So much for the GOP supporting those Tea Party ideals of free markets, limited government and individual rights.

But the reality of campaign advertising is that it can influence voters — even if it’s not true. And Udall’s ad is not only NOT true, it’s almost a joke! But now we have to quickly craft an ad to reply to this false attack, and that costs money we hadn’t planned on.

What’s the matter? Did Weh run out of funds from his profiteering shell-game known as “CSI Aviation” ? Not enough taxpayer FRNs coming in from We The Fleeced to count as “contributions” ?

He can always pass the hat to Slick Willard Romney.

But Weh has a two-shot here – after Weh responds to the latest Udall attempt at mudslinging, then Weh can do another ad telling us how great that ad was – isn’t that how it works?

Please help us respond to Udall’s attack so we can get the real truth out to our voters. Please give $75, $150, or $250 to help us stand up to Tom Udall.

Ask David Clements for some cash.


Who owns you? Who runs your life? Who wipes your ass? Who should – you or someone else?
Freedom is the answer – what’s the question?

“An elephant: A mouse built to government specifications.”
“Anything free is worth what you pay for it.”
“Be wary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at tax collectors – and miss.”

Ron Paul vs. David Horowitz

Filed under: Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:25 AM (02:25)

Current mood: cynical, pissed     

Neo-con Bushevik David Horowitz has this annoying habit of taking pot-shots at libertarians. In one of his latest, he goes after Ron Paul – Ron Paul Is A Vicious Anti-Semite and Anti-American and Conservatives Need To Wash Their Hands of Him.

As for the assertation that Horowitz “calls out the Islamists,” I can do that, too – and I can do it without stumping for tyranny here in the States or overseas military actions and occupations.

Want to call out the Islamists without being a creep like Horowitz? Simple – invoke the Bill of Rights when they insist that the governing body incorporate the malum prohibitum aspects of sharia into the U.S. Code, state law, county or city ordinances.

Tell the Islamists, “NO, you can’t have that sort of law here in America. If you want to live by this sort of code voluntarily, feel free to do so. Feel free to try persuading others to file suit. But you do NOT get to insert this into American law. Deal with that.”

Truth, Lies and Cigarettes

Filed under: Dark Side, Humor, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:44 AM (03:44)

Current mood: pissed

“2 Truths & a Lie” from “The Truth”

Guess the Lie!

  • Cigarettes are 100% safe and pose no health risks to smokers at all
  • Every 6.5 seconds, someone in the world dies from a smoking-related disease
  • Sunburns can cause wrinkles; so can cigarettes

Sneaky bastards, aren’t they — they put their preferred answer on top, and set the poll script to default to it.

Here’s my version –

Guess the Truth!

  • Smoking is a choice — just like drinking alcohol, smoking pot, crack, or meth, shooting up with heroin, speeding down the highway, rock-climbing, among other things.
  • Cigarettes fly around on their own, force themselves into smokers’ mouths, then self-ignite.
  • Tobacco companies force smokers to smoke, often by threatening smokers’ families with torturous, slow deaths.

Tom Mullins — Landmines on the (U.S.–Mexican) Border

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 1:19 PM (13:19)

Posted to Facebook

Way to go, Tom Mullins!

GOP House Candidate Tom Mullins: Consider Land Mines on Border with Mexico But NOT Canada (Audio)

Landmines on the border, to stop immigrants?

Here he attempts to clarify this a bit — Mullins clarifies land mines comment

Now he said in the KOB interview that he’s not advocating this himself, but was suggested by someone he met on the campaign trail.

Still, if you go to the archived audio clip, it does sound at first as though Mullins himself is advocating this very sort of thing —

I think well they need to enforce the law. I actually have a couple of ideas and I received these ideas. We talk about a border fence, and really what we get down to is, it’s very difficult to have a fence and have that work. But we have some low-cost, low-tech solutions, and I know it sounds crazy, but we used to have land mines. I know it sounds like a crazy thing, but if we wanted to stop, if we have an attack on the United States, if we have a nuclear attack and we find that they carried the nuclear weapon and the people that harmed us came across the border and we say we have got to secure the border, we could put land mines along the border. I know it sounds crazy, we could put up signs in 23 different languages if necessary . . . .

Now, later on in that clip, he does say that he doesn’t actually want to use land mines, and that the National Labs can cook up another low-tech, low-cost means to secure the border, but come on now, how many millions will they spend on developing it?

Am I supposed to believe that some future Administration won’t fall back upon the land-mine idea as just the sort of low-cost, low-tech solution? After all, back in 1996, we saw an 18-year-old boy (Esequiel Hernandez) who was herding goats, shot dead by a Marine Corps counter-drug patrol because of the .22-LR rifle that he carried. Between that, the whitewash and coverup investigation of the Waco Massacres of 28 February and 19 April 1993, and plenty of other incidents along those lines, why should anyone trust a Republican of the Lincoln-Roosevelt mold?

We saw just how well the Republican-majority U.S. House members exercised their oversight duties in 1998 looking into the Waco debacle, didn’t we? They didn’t dig too deeply simply because they knew that they would need the Democrats to return the favor and go easy on their Administrations’ . . . indiscretions of using federal power. We saw some of those indiscretions from 2001 through 2009, first at Rainbow Farm, then Afghanistan, then Iraq, the USA-PATRIOT Act of 2001, etc., etc.

What really stymies me is that the clown clique behind Mullins [1] keeps pushing the idea that things will improve “when our people take the reins of power.”

The fact remains that they had those reins of power in the Congress from 1995 until 2007, and in the White House from 2001 until 2009. How much did they actually shrink the reach and intrusiveness of Washington DC? How much did they lessen the costs of Washington DC upon us?


  1. I know that Mullins says that he’s not part of the GOP Machine, but is the gear in your wind-up alarm clock cognizant of the other gears in the clock, and the other parts that make the hands go around, the alarm go off, and such?

Skipping on Horowitz

Filed under: Events, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 10:51 PM (22:51)

I’ve been getting repeated emails from the Albuquerque Tea Party reminding me about the upcoming speech, dinner and book-signing by anti-libertarian neo-con David Horowitz:

Click the picture for the full-size version

Some examples of his potshots at Ron Paul in particular and libertarians generally in the past few years —

David Horowitz: “Ron Paul…is a Disgrace”

David Horowitz and a Guided Tour of the “Ron Paul Revolutionary” Mind

Check out this video clip from the Glenn Beck Show from 2007 —

The gems from that video clip —

“. . . strain of isolation and anarchy in the American tradition which Ron Paul is tapping into

Washington and Jefferson weren’t isolationists, they were non-interventionists, and there IS a difference, despite comments to the contrary from the neo-cons:

Friendship and commerce with all, entangling alliances with none.

Here’s the part that really sets me off — I see NO evidence from Horowitz that he’s changed from this tune in the past three years:

“. . . plenty of unfortunately libertarian websites indistinguishable from the anti-American left — and others like that . . . totally in bed with the Islamofascists and turned against this country”

In addition, Horowitz seems to me to be the neo-con version of Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center, headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama.

What Dees (allegedly) does is pick out some Aryan Airhead, then portray that idiot as being ready to take over Washington DC — “but YOU can stop this with your donation! And buy my book, too!” Dees also has a habit of smearing anyone in the militia movement, tax honesty movement, etc., etc., who’s ever come into contact with the Airhead. It doesn’t seem to matter that said Aryan was kicked out of the militia meeting immediately after showing his “SS” runes tattoo to the membership. It also doesn’t matter that the Aryan has no actual hope of gaining any sort of political power over anyone than other Aryan Airheads in their little (infiltrated with federal agents through and through) group.

Horowitz appears to do the same sort of thing where the Islamists are concerned — portray them as just a few steps away from carrying out their dreams of making sharia (Islamic religious law) the core of the American legal system — “but YOU can stop this with your donation! And buy my book, too!” Never mind that, like the Aryan Airheads, the sharia pushers have little to no chance of gaining any sort of actual power in America.

As with the Aryan Airheads, the best answer to the Islamists is to respond with better speech. I prefer to tell them that there’s nothing stopping them as individuals from setting the example for the rest of us, and adhering to the tenets of sharia personally. If they want to make it into American law, there’s an amendment process all spelled out for them in the Constitution. Until they get 2/3 of the House, 2/3 of the Senate and 3/4 of the State legislatures, it’s a no-go[1]. If they choose the Hamas / al-Qaeda route (suicide bombers, etc.), I look forward to taking corrective action via the Second Amendment.

So what is Horowitz’s answer to the prospect of Islamic terrorism here in America? Does he invoke the right of private citizens to own and carry weapons? Nope — for him, it’s a reason to expand the reach of Imperial Washington DC, with police-state agencies (DHS, for example) on the domestic side and long-term occupations of other countries for the foreign-policy side.

So Horowitz might have left Marxism back in the 1970’s, but I suspect that Marxism never truly left him.

So I’m going to skip seeing Horowitz when he shows up here in Albuquerque tonight — why pay Ø60 to hear this sort of thing when I can get it for free over the net?[2]


  1. Not that this seems to be stopping the Congress lately on anything else.
  2. My attending this event would be a double-hit on me financially — not only would I be out the Ø60, but I’d have to take a day off to attend, and thus come up short on next week’s paycheck.
