Texas State Young Americans for Liberty, #GagMeReagan


 At The Texas State Young Americans for Liberty Conference (3), the Opening Speaker, Chris Doss, proselytized his audience with this call to action,

Go forth and, “shove the Ronald Reagan of 1964 down their throats.” – Chris Doss

Then, around the corner I witnessed the “War on YOUth”, which honestly, was disturbing, but little did they know The Truth They Spoke.

Here Is The Reagan I Voiced Concern With To Chris Doss, The Ronald Regan of Just 5 Years Later,

“Reagan sent the California Highway Patrol and other officers to quell the protests, in an incident that became known as “Bloody Thursday”, resulting in the death of student James Rector and the blinding of carpenter Alan Blanchard.[85][86] Reagan then called out 2,200 state National Guard troops to occupy the city of Berkeley for two weeks to crack down on the protesters.[85] A year after “Bloody Thursday”, Reagan responded to questions about campus protest movements saying, “If it takes a bloodbath, let’s get it over with. No more appeasement.”[87] When the Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapped Patty Hearst in Berkeley and demanded the distribution of food to the poor, Reagan joked to a group of political aides about a botulism outbreak contaminating the food.[88] Conversely, in that one afternoon, “Bloody Thursday”, 111 police officers were injured, including one C.H.P. officer who was knifed in the chest. After calling in the National Guard, the Guard remained in Berkeley for 17 days, camping in People’s Park, and demonstrations subsided as the University removed cordoned-off fencing and placed all development plans for People’s Park on hold.” -WikiWikiYeah

It’s A Toll Road, Stupid


I love BitCoins, they are completely untraceable cuz you know, duh InCRIPTShun….

What do you mean how do they get there? The internet, duh, this guy.. <

What do you mean an underwater highway of telecommunications connecting the continents? 



Who owns them?


“All modern cables use fiber optic technology. Most such cables follow the great circle route from London, UK to New York City, USA because of the high-speed requirements of international financial transactions. Financial trading firms spend billions of dollars annually on high speed fiber optic communications to get an edge on trading”

Real Talk

From: https://www.facebook.com/LuciousAtXo

So, when I was in 2nd grade, we had to come up with a story explaining the etymology of our last names. Mine, at the time, was “Loose-Ear.” So, I concocted a brilliant fiction centered around my family line of Otolaryngologists, aka #ENT, whom went around with their extensive knowledge and fixed peoples’ “Loose-Ears” right up.

Now, I always knew the proper pronunciation of my last name to be French, “Lucy-Yay,” but in America, we speak American English and, hence, the alternative pronunciation. As I have grown, and studied the French language and visited the culture, I enjoy switching between the two pronunciations, dependent upon the situation. I leave you to ponder the irony in my creating the Mushroom Tea Party alongside my last name’s French pronunciation.

My real point is that, I, like many in America, have descended from multiple cultures into, the traditional phrase attributed to the United States, the melting pop of civilization. I’ve come to realize I am neither more “Loose-Ear,” than “Lucy-Yay”, but a wonderful mix of the two. But, what I have learned in the kitchen from my dad, USAF Major (Ret) Rick Lucier, is that no matter the end result, one does not arrive to it without each individual ingredient, and if not properly sourced, respected, and included, the end result could very well be the ruining of an entire dish.

Last, and certainly not least of all, is my Cherokee lineage. In High School, I had “anger” problems, but what I really had was people problems. I was raised to be respectful, decent, honorable, and most importantly, loyal.

Now, that last one there can get you in trouble. Loyalty to the wrong cause, person, or organization can leave a bad tarnish on your name. Choose wisely and investigate every nook and cranny of the cause, person, or organization’s books and records that are available.

Back to the people problems, I experienced every day in my school the lack of respect, decency, honor, and loyalty to one another, and not just among students, like you are probably thinking. No, no, that which shocked me the most was the lack of respect, decency, honor, and loyalty I witnessed exhibited from teacher to student. Not all, mind you, but enough to rattle my upbringing that, “all elders were to be respected.” A few girls, not women mind you, have rattled my upbringing of a similar philosophy, but I digress.

This is part of my story, and since this is Face Book, I’d like it to be as accurate as possible. How accurate is yours? 

Can you hear me now? #ENT




Jury Nullification- A Right and a Duty

Jury Nullification, the last defense against a tyrannical government

Texas Connect

Imagine you are a juror for a criminal case. The evidence is clear that the defendant broke the law. However, your conscience tells you the law is unjust and should not be enforced. What do you do?

John Jay, our nation’s first Supreme Court Justice stated that “It is presumed, that juries are the best judges of facts; it is, on the other hand, presumed that courts are the best judges of law. But still both objects are within your power of decision… you [juries] have a right to take it upon yourselves to judge of both, and to determine the la w as well as the fact in controversy.”
American jurors have a history of fighting injustice with JN. Jurors routinely refused to convict prosecutions under the Fugitive Slave Act and during Prohibition. Unfortunately, like so many of our basic rights and freedoms today, JN is under attack.

Texas Tribune Festival

I attended the Texas Tribune Festival for the first time this year thanks to the organizers lining me up with a free pass for being a student. The Texas Tribune is a non-profit news organization based in Austin, Texas:

that promotes civic engagement and discourse on public policy, politics, government, and other matters of statewide concern. Our vision is to serve the journalism community as a source of innovation and to build the next great public media brand in the United States.


The opening ceremony was capped off with a live-stream interview with Ted Cruz, still in Washington D.C. because of the upcoming government shutdown. Though Cruz is touted as a fresh, independent voice in the D.C., Hollywood act, he actually served on the campaign for Bush-Cheney in 2000. It showed when he began the interview immediately tying the United States foreign policy with that of Israel’s and hypocritically denying Iran the right to nuclear energy. When I confronted one of the staff I had met at the mixer for students being held at the Cactus Cafe with the thought that he was just riding the political wave, she retorted with, “Well, isn’t that what politics is all about?” Being a nonpartisan, non profit organization, I was obviously in attendance with hopes of a fresh outlook towards the political spectrum. I responded with, “Let’s hope we can move past that onto some leaders with morals they can stick to throughout their political careers as statesmen, and not politicians.” The conversation moved to water when I brought up the fact that T Boone Pickens is pumping the Ogallala Aquifer dry in northern Texas to make a buck. I was then hit with the news that the CEO of the Texas Tribune is good friends with the ruthless capitalist. No surprise to find the leading sponsor of the event as America’s Natural Gas Alliance, T Boone’s other favorite commodity. I informed my new acquaintance of my suspicions of this “news agency” with such ties, and she reassured me of the nonpartisan stance of the organization; nonpartisan, and most definitely capitalist oriented as you go down the list of sponsors to find JPMorgan, Lockheed Martin, and AT&T, who has partnered with the University of Texas to open the new Business Conference Center and Hotel directly on campus. 


Freedom of Consciousness


How free are we as a society when we cannot even make the basic choice of what to ingest into our own bodies? Many view religion as an external experience, a building where you go once a week to sing some songs with a group of people, some of which you hold a relationship with outside of this setting, others in which you do not, and hear a sermon from a man (or woman) who you may or may not have a personal relationship with. Others see their religion, or spirituality, as a way of life, an everyday reality that makes up who they are as a person. It affects, or rather helps describe, their interpersonal relations, eating habits, meditative practices, work or career choice, and every other aspect of one’s day. The First Amendment was put in place here in the United States to protect the people from any infringement of these practices by the state. The use of a sacrament has long been held, and respected, in the Christian faith. The same idea of a sacrament exists in many indigenous cultures, and Native Americans are protected through Supreme Court decisions in their use of peyote, but where do these boundaries and restriction to usage come from when the first amendment is in place to protect the right to choose? Santo Diem churches have begun to pop up in the states, and they too have won the right, in an Oregon case, to use a natural brew, known as Ayahuasca, of the Banisteriopsis caapi vine mixed with leaves of a shrub belonging to the Psychotria genus, but not without great social and legal difficulty due to Dimethyltryptamine’s illegality, and demonization, under the Controlled Substances Act. These substances, along with Psilocybin containing mushrooms and Lysergic Acid Diethyl-amide produce an intense neurological reaction within the individual that is often described as spiritual. A new perspective on reality is quickly uncovered, a new connection with one’s environment and others follows. The right of passage ceremony, incorporating the use of one of these entheogens was once deeply ingrained into indigenous societies. This brings about a great spiritual awareness and knowledge of oneself at a young age. Not found in today’s society, other than the right to drive, drink, or die for one’s country, this may account for the moral degradation in today’s society. A Johns Hopkins study recently came out to support the use of psilocybin pills in improving the quality of life for cancer patients. The question beckons, why must one be on their death bed before being justified in improving their quality of life? Until we return to the proper function of government, and indeed Constitutionality, the soul of the nation will remain suppressed, and pressure will build like that of a pressure cooker, until a release is found.
