The picture above is the very tap root of Bishop's Homegrown/Face Of The Earth Seed. My grandparents shortly after moving to Pekin Indiana from Greensburg KY in 1947 where they purchased the farm that is now Bishop's Homegrown. This picture was taken in Pekin in front of the old co-op next to the old railroad depot, neither of which exist today.

Indiana: Road to tyrany.

So it looks like my home state has forgotten just what rights and liberties "We The People" have been granted. Recently they passed the Endangered Nosey Pig Law

This law essentially protects the endemic "problem pig" population by allowing them to enter your home, root around a bit, and deficate anywhere they want without a warrant to do so or even probable cause. You know, if I remember right the Brittish crown tried something similar to this during the revolutionary war and we beat their ass all the way back to the isles, perhaps we will do the same in court to our own government or if necessary take it to the street.

To those cops drawn to drama (and many of you piggies are, not all some of you are truly great men, citizen servants in the true spirit) I would suggest taking a listen to Led Zeppelin's "No Quarter" and by the way don't be suprised if things don't always go as planned when you poke a normally docille hornets next with a stick.....afterall "Pigs get what pigs desserve."

Just to clarify, it was not a law passed by the legislature and then signed by the Govenor, rather a court ruling. If the legislature passed a law that specified that we Hoosiers did indeed have the right to resist unlawful entry into our homes, it would in effect, negate the court's ruling.

Agreed and I should have clarified that but then there would have been no way to have written a witty "Nosey Pig Law" statement. Good call though.

And folks, don't think we can't. Believe it or not, the law is on the people's side, because in the beginning it was the people who wrote it. Also, google "jury nullification" and educate yourselves. This was the people's balance of power and still is, the legal professionals just try not to let you know about it. Juror's have the right to decide if a law should be upheld or not, regardless of a judges suggestions.

And don't think we can't! Google 'jury nullification and educate yourselves. It is every juror's right to decide if a law should be upheld or not. This is the people's balance of power.

A couple of tenacious policemen went above and beyond the call of duty and unlawfully entered my home over twenty years ago. They saved my mother's life and mine and my siblings as well on just a hunch. They had no clue as to what was happening in our house and against my father's wishes, they entered and set us free in more than one way.

They weren't being quartered and eating all our food while engaging in war with our men folk like the British. And, to this day, I wish that I had been old enough to have thanked them or at least have tracked them down, but, of course, the county sheriff's department destroyed the records by the time I realized I needed them.

I just wish that someone/anyone would have unlawfully entered that house where that poor boy died in that dog cage there in Indiana, but life is far from even remotely fair.,0,2952575.story

John, one can always argue that indeed there may be reason for a police man to enter your home for protetion, but then that amounts to "probable cause". There are just as many reasons that a police officer constitutionally does not have the right to enter your home illegally (which is exactly what this amounts too) not the least of which is personal vendettas, power trips, and laws that are becoming quickly far more totalitarian.

I stand by whay I say and won't be "guilted" into believing otherwise.

Bishop is correct. We can in no way ever be fully protected or safe. All these laws do is take away one right after another. When does it stop?
