WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES

[1:35]

In my formerly conservative days, I was proud to sign up for the draft through the selective service program. At the time, I didn't understand fully the implications of that decision. Looking back on it now, I wish I had more information on it. From a government that tells me I am not smart enough to use alcohol until I'm 21 years old, or that I'm never smart enough to use many other drugs, it is the height of hypocrisy for them to force an even more difficult decision like this on 18-year-old boys.

And this is not just an intellectual exercise for me. I have two boys, 11 and 9, who, much sooner than I want, will be facing this exact decision. I want to prepare them for this decision much better than my parents prepared me, which was exactly zero preparation. 

I have to start out with the caveat that I am not a lawyer and nothing you'll ever hear me say is legal advice.

WHAT'S IN THE NEWS

[10:26]

In barriers to work news, Gardendale, Alabama is now requiring kids in the town to pay $110 to buy a business license if they want to make a few extra bucks over the summer mowing lawns. Teenagers have actually been threatened by officials and other lawn services to show their city-issued license before cutting a person’s lawn for extra summer cash.

In other state vs. kids news, in Worth County, Georgia, violated children and furious parents have just filed a massive lawsuit after the Worth County Sheriff’s office conducted an illegal search of 900 students — in the name of the war on drugs.

In big brother is always watching news, the FBI has illegally shared raw intelligence about Americans with unauthorized third parties and violated other constitutional privacy protections, according to newly declassified government documents.

In Ross Ulbricht news, the Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit upheld the conviction and sentencing of Ross Ulbricht for life without parole based on crimes associated with launching and operating the Silk Road website, a site where people could buy and sell items anonymously, including illegal drugs.

In low information jurors news, jurors in Mecosta County, Michigan, have convicted a man for telling potential jurors that they don't have to convict people.

ANCAP APPS

[23:27]

Do I have an interesting treat for you guys today! If you've been listening to me for a while, you know that I've talked about Arcade City quite a lot in the past, and not in a good way. I liked the original concept behind Arcade City, but I had massive issues with the implementation by Christopher David. My first Ancap Apps segment on Arcade City was way back in March of last year where I was talking about the very beginnings of the great idea and how excited I was for it. You can listen to that episode at thelavaflow.com/33. Then, in September of last year, when things started looking bad for the implementation of Arcade City, I did a Jimmies called The Gamification of Arcade City. You can get to that one by going to thelavaflow.com/45. I followed that one up in November with Arcade City 2.0 where I talked about the huge changes in Arcade City when Christopher David stepped down and left the operations of Arcade City to the development team that became involved in the project. You can get that one at thelavaflow.com/50. Finally, I did a spurt episode called Arcade City vs. Swarm City Hard Fork, where the dev team went even further to distance themselves from Chris by changing the brand completely to Swarm City. That one is at thelavaflow.com/tls28

I haven't talked much about them since, but I've been watching closely, and I've been very pleased with what I've seen. So pleased, even, that I spend some money and purchased some Swarm City tokens, the same tokens that were once called Arcade City tokens that I told everyone to stay the hell away from. And, the newest advertiser for this show is Swarm City! This is how much things have changed. And, today, I have an interview with Matt Carano, a musician, voluntaryist, entrepreneur, marketer, and organizer who is currently running a communications hive in Swarm City.

INTRO

“Welcome to The LAVA Flow, channeling the flow of information to the Libertarian, Anarcho-capitalist, Voluntaryist, and Agorist community. Find us at thelavaflow.com. Here’s your host, Rodger Paxton.”

Thank you for joining me this week, coming to you from the state that is called the Granite State for a reason, because you can't dig anywhere in the state without hitting tons of rocks, as I found out last weekend, this is the show that will bring you the people, places, and events that everyone in the liberty revolution needs to know. You can catch me on Twitter @TheLAVAFlowPod.

This is episode sixty-three, Dodge the Draft, and it's Tuesday, June 6th, 2017, when there have already been more than 505 people killed by police this year. What's Rustling My Jimmies this week? You're about to find out! Let’s Do It To It!

WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES

In my formerly conservative days, I was proud to sign up for the draft through the selective service program. At the time, I didn't understand fully the implications of that decision. Looking back on it now, I wish I had more information on it. From a government that tells me I am not smart enough to use alcohol until I'm 21 years old, or that I'm never smart enough to use many other drugs, it is the height of hypocrisy for them to force an even more difficult decision like this on 18-year-old boys.

And this is not just an intellectual exercise for me. I have two boys, 11 and 9, who, much sooner than I want, will be facing this exact decision. I want to prepare them for this decision much better than my parents prepared me, which was exactly zero preparation.

I have to start out with the caveat that I am not a lawyer and nothing you'll ever hear me say is legal advice.

Let's start with what happens if you or your children are drafted.

If there is a draft for cannon fodder like we saw in Vietnam, men who registered for the draft (if you didn't register, you won't be drafted) and who turn 20 this year would be called up first. In 2017, men born in 1997 would be drafted first. They would then move to men of other ages.

Some of the first people to be drafted will probably be doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers. The military was short of health care workers even before the current wars began, and as the bodies pile up Congress may authorize a "Doctor Draft" of medical professionals. Selective Service has contingency plans for a Health Care Personnel Delivery System to draft men and women ages 20 through 44 who are doctors, nurses, technicians, therapists, or other medical professionals.

One way for such people not to be drafted -- unless they are also young men eligible for the general draft -- is to give up their medical or professional licenses. But they'll have to do it before they are drafted. Unless you're already thinking about a career change, that's not much of a choice. For more on the health workers draft, see www.MedicalDraft.info.

If you get drafted, you'll get a letter giving you ten days to report for a pre-induction medical exam. If you show up, pass the physical, and submit to induction, they'll put you on a bus to basic training the same day.

If the Vietnam War draft is a guide, the odds favor people who resist. Most of the people who resisted illegally -- especially those who never registered -- were never caught. They weren't drafted, they didn't go to prison, and they were never even charged in court. Even of the 210,000 men who were formally accused of violating the draft laws, only 4,000 went to prison. Another 5,000 got probation, and 41,000 avoided prosecution by submitting to induction. The rest -- more than 75% -- were either never caught, never went to trial, won in court, or flunked their induction physicals!

So, you are generally much better off if you refuse to register in the first place. But, there are implications for not signing up for the draft. The maximum penalty for failing to register with Selective Service is a $250,000 fine and up to five years in prison, although such harsh treatment is unheard of for draft resisters. Failure to register will also cause ineligibility for a number of federal and state benefits including federal jobs, student aid, federal job training, state jobs, and training. Plus, most states have added additional penalties for those who fail to register with Selective Service, including not allowing you to get a driver's license unless you've signed up. Thankfully, New Hampshire does not have that restriction. Most of these are really not much of an issue for us. My boys will never need to receive federal jobs, student aid, or job training. The big issue is if they will have to spend time in prison. And this is a big risk.

I happen to be friends with the man who spent more time in prison than any other draft resister since the Vietnam War. He is also a former chairman of the Libertarian Party of Arkansas like I am. Paul Jacob spent 5 and a half months in federal prison in 1985 for refusing to sign up for the selective service. He was very vocal about his opposition and became a target because of this. He wanted to make a political statement, and he did in spades. Congressman Ron Paul testified on his behalf in court. He said, before his indictment, "I am not a pacifist resisting war. I am a free man resisting slavery." Paul Jacob wrote a brilliant article called The Draft is Slavery that I'll link in the show notes to this episode at thelavaflow.com/63. If you want to hear more about Paul Jacob's story, check out the article I'm a Free Man Resisting Slavery by James W. Harris. There is, of course, a link in the show notes.

Jacob ended his article with this paragraph:

Army General John A. Wickham, a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said in praise of American soldiers, "They follow orders and they die." Whether drafted for war or for any other purpose, this statement sums up the distressing fate of the conscript. When human beings lose the power to decide the destiny of their own lives, when they are relegated from pursuing their own happiness to merely following orders, then they do die. If the death is not a permanent physical one, it is certainly a death of the human spirit--a death of the soul.

Absolutely, and this is why I will be advising my boys to not register for the draft. If they choose to do so anyway, I will support their decision, because it is one that I made, and who can blame them for making a decision like that when they could face 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine? However, if my boys choose not to register to be drafted to another man's war against their wills, I will also support them in any way that I can, even if I have to help hide them out in the New Hampshire mountains like the so-called "Slacker Gang" hid in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas during the draft for World War I.

The Slacker Gang were a number of young men from Newton County, AR who were selected in the first draft of June 5, 1917, but refused to report for duty. Given the rugged terrain and close-knit, interrelated community in the region, it'ss unlikely that the sheriff would have been able to assemble a nearby posse and then apprehend the resistors, all of whom had reputations as snipers, without considerable bloodshed. Four U.S. marshals, several special investigators, and an army colonel visited Cecil Cove but were unable to coerce the so-called slackers peacefully or by the threat of force. One deputy even declared it would be “nothing short of suicide” to attempt to capture the slacker gang.

Hopefully, it won't come to that for my boys, and they can live their lives in peace, and I am taking every step I can to help them with this if they so choose. Homeschooling is a big help, since the government most likely will get your kids addresses from their schools. Another thing that helps is that compliance rates for signing up for the draft keep dropping, which will create even more statistical noise that will help protect my boys if they decide not to sign up. As of 2015, it was down to about 88%, from a high in 1991 of 97.7%.

There is one more option that is very difficult to achieve but may be worth a shot. You can register as a conscientious objector. Since there is no legal way to really do this, The Center on Conscience and War recommends you write that you are opposed to participation in war in any form on the face of the card before mailing it in. This is a risk because you can't really legally file as a conscientious objector until you have been drafted, and that is a difficult process to win, especially in war time when the military needs cannon fodder. You have to prove that you are a conscientious objector to a draft board. The Center on Conscience and War has very detailed information on this if it's a route you want to pursue. You run the risk here of being denied that status and being forced into war anyway, which is a big risk to take, but it can keep you out of legal trouble if there is no draft. I've linked to information from The Center on Conscience and War in the show notes to this episode.

If you are considering this for yourself or your children, I highly recommend researching this heavily so you understand all of the ramifications for whatever you choose. As my children get older, I plan to spend time with them talking about this so we can decide what's best for them. There is no substitute for researching your options and being knowledgeable about the process.

WHAT'S IN THE NEWS

In barriers to work news, Gardendale, Alabama is now requiring kids in the town to pay $110 to buy a business license if they want to make a few extra bucks over the summer mowing lawns. Teenagers have actually been threatened by officials and other lawn services to show their city-issued license before cutting a person’s lawn for extra summer cash.

Since the going rate for cutting a lawn in Gardendale is $20 - $30, a teenager would have to mow about five lawns just to pay for the government’s permission to mow lawns, if it pleases the crown.

Elton Campbell, the grandmother of one of the affected teens told a local television station, "One of the men that cuts several yards made a remark to one of our neighbors, 'that if he saw her cutting grass again that he was going to call Gardendale because she didn't have a business license."

So here we have someone literally using the force of government to cut down on his competition. Instead of lower his prices, providing a better service, or finding some other way to out-compete his competition, this asshat sicks men with guns on kids to do his dirty work for him. This is the definition of crony capitalism and this man should be ashamed of himself. But, I imagine he's a statist who thinks he's just doing the right thing for his community.

In other state vs. kids news, in Worth County, Georgia, violated children and furious parents have just filed a massive lawsuit after the Worth County Sheriff’s office conducted an illegal search of 900 students — in the name of the war on drugs.

An Atlanta attorney is now representing multiple students who were subjected to invasive and outright horrifying body searches during a mass — and warrantless — search for drugs at a South Georgia high school. Attorney Mark Begnaud, who filed the class-action lawsuit, called out the sheriff for conducting “900 illegal, suspicionless searches.” He went on to say, “This was a textbook definition of overreach. They pulled 900 students out of class. They did full, hands-on body searches.”

On April 14, when the students of Worth County High School returned from spring break, they arrived at school to find a police state had taken over. The sheriff and his deputies — with no probable cause — detained and illegally searched every single child in the school, all 900 of them. More than 40 cops from five other law enforcement agencies participated in the raid.

According to the complaint,

Defendants’ searches of students were intrusive, performed in an aggressive manner, and done in full view of other students. For example: a) Deputies ordered students to stand facing the wall with their hands and legs spread wide apart; b) Deputies touched and manipulated students’ breasts and genitals; c) Deputies inserted fingers inside girls’ bras, and pulled up girls’ bras, touching and partially exposing their bare breasts. d) Deputies touched girls’ underwear by placing hands inside the waistbands of their pants or reaching up their dresses; e) Deputies touched girls’ vaginal areas through their underwear; f) Deputies cupped or groped boys’ genitals and touched their buttocks through their pants. Defendants had no warrant or other authority to perform a mass search on hundreds of public school children.

And what did this massive, illegal, and borderline-rape search yield? Not a single bit of contraband. Not one goddamned piece. And no one is surprised by this, because Sylvester Police Department did a search at this school on March 17 — just a few weeks before — and found no drugs. But Sheriff Jeff Hobby told reporters he didn’t think that search was thorough enough, so he decided to do his own. Naturally, Hobby is standing by this rights violation on a massive scale, noting that as long as a school administrator was present, the search of the children was legal.

Apparently, in the sheriff’s mind, school administrators can usurp the constitutional rights of children in favor of unlawful police searches.

Thank Rothbard my kids don't go to government indoctrination centers because if a cop had touched my kid like this there is no telling what I might do. There has not been a single charge brought against this department or any of the officers involved, of course, and there likely never will be because cops have special privileges that the rest of us don't have, and they can hide behind their badge.

In big brother is always watching news, the FBI has illegally shared raw intelligence about Americans with unauthorized third parties and violated other constitutional privacy protections, according to newly declassified government documents.
Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) chronicles nearly 10 pages listing hundreds of violations of the FBI’s privacy-protecting minimization rules that occurred on former FBI Director James Comey’s watch.

The behavior the FBI admitted to a FISA judge just last month ranged from illegally sharing raw intelligence with unauthorized third parties to accessing intercepted attorney-client privileged communications without proper oversight the bureau promised was in place years ago. The FBI was forced to admit its agents and analysts shared espionage data with prohibited third parties, ranging from a federal contractor to a private entity that did not have the legal right to see the intelligence.

The court isn’t the only oversight body to disclose recent concerns that the FBI’s voluntary system for policing its behavior and self-disclosing mistakes hasn’t been working.

The Justice Department inspector general’s office declassified a report in 2015 that reveals the internal watchdog had concerns as early as 2012 that the FBI was submitting ‘deficient” reports indicating it had a clean record complying with spy data gathered on Americans without a warrant.

The FBI said it is trying to resolve the deficiencies with the aggressive training of agents.
That admission of inadequate training directly undercut Comey’s testimony earlier this month when questioned by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. Comey said, "Nobody gets to see FISA information of any kind unless they've had the appropriate training and have the appropriate oversight."

This is a huge concern when you have agencies who are not supposed to be targeting Americans but are anyway, like the NSA, sharing their intelligence with agencies that are not allowed to spy at all, like the FBI, who then turn around and share that data with whoever they choose. If you honestly think that the government doesn't know everything that they want to know about you by now, then you are either naive or foolish. Of course, they know, and they will know more and more as we go along. The only thing we can do is try and be as secure in our communications as possible, even when doing even the most innocuous things. I use Wire or Signal for the vast majority of my communications because they are end-to-end encrypted. I even use these programs to ask my wife what's for dinner or to tell her I love her from a distance. These programs give me some privacy, and every time I use one, it creates more noise out there that the NSA and FBI can't access, which I know drives them batshit crazy. Want to help me drive them crazy? Go to app.wire.com and send me a message to @rodgerpaxton, even if it's just to say hi, or to ask me what's for dinner!

In Ross Ulbricht news, the Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit upheld the conviction and sentencing of Ross Ulbricht for life without parole based on crimes associated with launching and operating the Silk Road website, a site where people could buy and sell items anonymously, including illegal drugs.

Reason.com has an incredibly detailed and well-written article on the appeal and the justification of denying the appeal by the judge. I highly recommend you check that out. It is much larger in scope than I can get to on this show.

Ulbricht's mother Lyn, who has been a consistent public voice for her son's case, says in a blog post at FreeRoss.org that:

The Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 says A judge should impose a sentence that is"sufficient, but not greater than necessary." How is a double life sentence plus 40 years by any stretch necessary? Even if everything Ross has been accused of is true, which we steadfastly do not believe, a life sentence is draconian and unnecessary.

We will not stop fighting.

What specific form that further fight for Ulbricht's liberty will take is unknown at posting time. But Lyn Ulbricht said in an email this morning, "I expect that Ross will appeal the ruling. I don't see this decision as the end."

I will get to spend time with Lyn in a couple of weeks at PorcFest. I imagine she'll give an update on the case and where it will go from here at that time and I'll try to let you guys know what she says. I'm heartbroken for Ross and his family and I wish them all the best.

What it does is it allows people to participate in commerce; to communicate and transact, without interference from a middle party. To give you an example, platforms like Amazon and Uber give global users a safe place to conduct business, but they’re centrally organized. And as we all know central organization is never the most efficient, so these platforms extract a lot of value from the transacting parties, sometimes greater than 25% of each transaction!

In low information jurors news, jurors in Mecosta County, Michigan, have convicted a man for telling potential jurors that they don't have to convict people.

In 2015, Keith Wood stood outside a district courthouse in Big Rapids handing out pamphlets to passers-by. The literature explained the concept of jury nullification—the idea that jurors have the right to refuse to convict people of breaking laws they believe are unjust. Wood and his lawyer contend that distributing these pamphlets is protected free speech.

Prosecutors disagreed. Wood was convicted Thursday of attempting to influence a jury, a misdemeanor charge that could lead to a sentence of up to a year in jail. Prosecutors argued that the very nature of such fliers taints a jury pool. As Mecosta County Assistant Prosecutor Nathan Hull told the jury, "This pamphlet from beginning to end is designed to benefit a criminal defendant."

Let that argument soak in for just a moment. It is illegal to inform and educate jurors because it may benefit a criminal defendant. What the actual fuck? I guarantee you that if this pamphlet benefitted the state or the prosecution, they would be paying people to hand them out in front of courthouses instead of prosecuting them. As Reason.com said:

Sadly, the jury took less than an hour of deliberation to convict Wood. But perhaps we shouldn't be surprised. The judge apparently prevented Wood's lawyer from offering any sort of First Amendment–based defenses. Because of the judge's behavior, Wood's jury received only limited information—a practice, interestingly enough, that the nullification pamphlet warns about. If only somebody been handing them out when they were seating Wood's jury. Wood's lawyer says they'll appeal the verdict.

And in some LAVA Flow news, the winner of my latest contest for two free PorcFest tickets was Sarah in Lousiana. Congrats, Sarah, and I can't wait to see you at PorcFest!
