“Have you reached your breaking point yet?”

Our government in action! An American citizen has sued and won almost a half a million dollars from the federal government for subjecting her to a random strip search upon her return to the states from Mexico.

Read the article. Customs agents essentially raped her. Worse, the agents won’t pay the bill, it will be you, the taxpayer.


Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.


Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    I can certainly accept the reasons why the victim (an appropriate term) chose to settle, but settling lets the legislators and perpetrators off the hook. To the extent that the American people have allowed this to happen and continue to happen, citizens are culpable for damages, but surely the sheer depravity of what transpired should move people to, en masse, demand the relevant legislation be changed or, better yet, repealed. Taxpayers should seek reparation (and justice) by suing the government entities and the particular actors who are responsible.

    If only Al Pacino was real and took a flamethrower to these assholes.

    A little off topic but I just learned that, in pursuit of additional security, the Social Security Administration will not allow me to access my Social Security account online, after July, unless I own a text enabled cell phone. That’s so they can text me a code to complete logging on. No, I don’t own a cell phone, never will. ARRRRRGGGHHHH…

    I’m guessing hundreds of other Americans and non-Americans (perhaps it’s OK for the US government to sexually abuse foreigners in this way?) have been exposed to the same thing but signed the “consent form” to avoid facing the additional financial extortion.
