Celebrating British Independence Day #Brexit

Celebrating British Independence from EU

 

Celebrating with folks around the world on twitter tonight– it is like a fireworks display in words.  The results are in.  The Brits have declared their independence from the EU.  The markets are in a chaos predicting that the sky is falling, but people are celebrating and resolved to set the people and the markets free from elitist control.

Here are a couple of my favs on twitter tonight:

Twitter on Brexit

Nigel Farage quote

Nigel Farage, “Dare to dream that the dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom” #EURefResults @SkyNews

And now for something a little more controversial and designed to make you think about what could be next.  It was first discovered on Liberty Forest and is thought to have originated on PolandBall.  I could not find it there however.  I have edited it slightly for language and share it here now as food for thought:Cartoon from liberty forums edited for Brexit aftermath

Liberty on Tap

 

The Tulsa State Fair is in town. The midway is bustling with the sights and sounds of rides and games….and the Tulsa County Sheriff Department, in place to protect and serve. One undercover deputy saved many fair goers from a menace to society, from a dangerous threat for all those attracted to the balloon/dart game…..he saved them from the Hello Kitty carney.

The deputy negotiated a price for the Hello Kitty doll rather than play the game. The Hello Kitty was soon in his possession as was Frank, the carney. He was thrown in a cage and charged with violating the Carnival Fraud Act and slapped with a $500 bond. Frank is apparently an indigent worker from Texas.

As the story hit the media, more and more people expressed negative comments against law enforcement. One group of individuals found this injustice outrageous and worked together to raise money to…

the definition of liberty:

liberty

LIB’ERTY, n. [L. libertas, from liber, free.]

1. Freedom from restraint, in a general sense, and applicable to the body, or to the will or mind. The body is at liberty, when not confined; the will or mind is at liberty, when not checked or controlled. A man enjoys liberty, when no physical force operates to restrain his actions or volitions.

2. Natural liberty, consists in the power of acting as one thinks fit, without any restraint or control, except from the laws of nature. It is a state of exemption from the control of others, and from positive laws and the institutions of social life. This liberty is abridged by the establishment of government.

3. Civil liberty, is the liberty of men in a state of society, or natural liberty, so far only abridged and restrained, as is necessary and expedient for the safety and interest of the society, state or nation. A restraint of natural liberty, not necessary or expedient for the public, is tyranny or oppression. civil liberty is an exemption from the arbitrary will of others, which exemption is secured by established laws, which restrain every man from injuring or controlling another. Hence the restraints of law are essential to civil liberty.

The liberty of one depends not so much on the removal of all restraint from him, as on the due restraint upon the liberty of others.

In this sentence, the latter word liberty denotes natural liberty.

4. Political liberty, is sometimes used as synonymous with civil liberty. But it more properly designates the liberty of a nation, the freedom of a nation or state from all unjust abridgment of its rights and independence by another nation. Hence we often speak of the political liberties of Europe, or the nations of Europe.

5. Religious liberty, is the free right of adopting and enjoying opinions on religious subjects, and of worshiping the Supreme Being according to the dictates of conscience, without external control.

6. Liberty, in metaphysics, as opposed to necessity, is the power of an agent to do or forbear any particular action, according to the determination or thought of the mind, by which either is preferred to the other.

Freedom of the will; exemption from compulsion or restraint in willing or volition.

7. Privilege; exemption; immunity enjoyed by prescription or by grant; with a plural. Thus we speak of the liberties of the commercial cities of Europe.

8. Leave; permission granted. The witness obtained liberty to leave the court.

9. A space in which one is permitted to pass without restraint, and beyond which he may not lawfully pass; with a plural; as the liberties of a prison.

10. Freedom of action or speech beyond the ordinary bounds of civility or decorum. Females should repel all improper liberties.

To take the liberty to do or say any thing, to use freedom not specially granted.

To set at liberty, to deliver from confinement; to release from restraint.

To be at liberty, to be free from restraint.

Liberty of the press, is freedom from any restriction on the power to publish books; the free power of publishing what one pleases, subject only to punishment for abusing the privilege, or publishing what is mischievous to the public or injurious to individuals.

Vaughnshire Farm Homeschool Moment – Cereal Connection?

Homeschooling provides special moments I like to equate with the “perfect golf shot”.  It only takes one moment like this to make you come back for the next round.  During our dinner discussion tonight we were discussing the setup of our new solar powered device.  I was explaining to the family the difference between serial connections and parallel connections when connecting the solar panels and batteries together.  I asked if anyone knew what a serial connection was.

My favorite 3 year old spoke up and said, ”its when the milk is connected to the Cheerios, that is a cereal connection”….  After a hearty laugh, everyone agreed he deserved an “A” for the class tonight.  Personally I’m looking forward to my older boys teaching this young guy what they have learned in logic class soon.

I’ll spare you the square root discussion that followed.  But, with a few brownies and some milk, a good time was had by all.
