Anti-gun laws good for criminals

March 21, 2018

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for March 21, 2018)

How much do you respect self-destructive people?

Do you honor those who engage in self-harm such as “cutting”? Do you celebrate those who burn up their mind and body by abusing drugs and alcohol? Do you respect those who commit suicide as soon as life doesn’t go their way?

Then why praise teenagers (or anyone else) who protest for more anti-gun “laws”? Just because they are “doing something” with conviction? If that’s all it takes, young ISIS recruits deserve your respect, too…read the rest

Lies cause weakness

March 18, 2018

American culture, if there is such a thing, is weak and pitiful from decades (or more) of telling lies. And from glossing over lies that are told. Lies always cause weakness.

But the lies are understandable in a way.

Lies feel safe and cozy. Especially when they are told and retold. When the lies bring you together and make you feel a part of a community you have a special place to fit in.

Truth is often lonely and painful. I know.

I wish I could tell the lies and feel accepted and warm. But it wouldn’t change the truth. I wish I could say that cops are good guys, that taxation is the price of a civilized society, and that it’s good to support government because God tells me to in Romans 13. I wish I could believe in “authority” and that it is for my own good and the good of the children. I wish I could believe government schools are “public” centers of education. That citizenship is a wonderful thing. Those are comforting lies because of the beliefs of those around me. Telling those lies to myself and others would help me fit in and feel welcomed. But they are still lies.

Fake "responsibilities"

March 16, 2018

Did you know there are fake responsibilities people will try to guilt you into accepting? It’s true.

Such as your “responsibility” to v*te. Or to comply with counterfeit “laws”. Or to “pay your taxes“.

These fake responsibilities are handy tools for the control freaks. They give them leverage against people whose ethical foundation makes them want to accept their responsibilities while confusing them with lies.

You have the responsibility to not violate the rights of others; to respect their liberty. This includes keeping agreements you voluntarily took part in. You have no responsibility to prop up the State. You have no responsibility to protect people from the consequences of their own evil behavior.

Sometimes it takes a lot of work living up to your responsibilities. You certainly don’t need to be wasting effort on the fake responsibilities you have been tricked into believing you have. Stick to the real stuff, and leave the fake stuff to the useful idiots.

Three topics big deal to libertarians

March 14, 2018

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for March 14, 2018)

There are three topics which come up frequently in libertarian writings: guns, drugs, and national borders. The reason is those three areas are where the people of America seem willing to let government do the most damage to Rightful Liberty, just to punish other people.

All three are hot buttons for almost everyone, with people on each side screaming at those on the other…read the rest

You support… that?

March 13, 2018

There are businesses around which display support for Blue Line Gang molesters on their electronic signs. I’m glad to know what they support so I can spend my money elsewhere. 
There are houses which fly the Blue Line Gang molester flag; the flag that declares that the lives of molesters are more important than yours or mine. I’m glad to know where these people live so I can avoid them and leave them to their heroes in an emergency.
There are cars driving around with stickers on them advertising their support for the molester gang. I encourage them to let themselves be known everywhere they go.
I’ll always encourage the enemies of all that is decent to display who they are and what they support. It’s helpful to know where anti-liberty bigots are.

Taxation is…

March 12, 2018

Taxation is theft.
Taxation is theft.
Taxation is theft.
Taxation is theft!

I remember how I felt the first time I heard it. I was shocked. But then I tried to consider any possible way it might not be true. I never did find any flaws in the reasoning. Taxation IS theft.

It needs to be repeated until it is a cliche.
Until it is no longer shocking but is, instead, boring.
Until people who hear it roll their eyes, not because it’s a crazy notion, but because it’s something everyone simply knows already.

Gun rights or copsucking? Your choice.

March 9, 2018

If you consider yourself a gun rights enthusiast, but you support cops and the military, you aren’t Ready to Rumble, you are Ready to Crumble. Ready to willingly cave in to whatever “law” your heroes decide to enforce against you.

Don’t fool yourself– if they have to choose between the paycheck/pension/social status, and respecting your rights, you will be tossed aside like anonymous skid-marked underwear hanging on their doorknob.

You are throwing your support behind your enemies– the very people who will be treading on you while prying the guns out of your cold, dead hands. Assuming you didn’t hand over all your guns immediately when your heroes demanded you do so.

There are few creatures as pathetic as a cop-supporting gun-rights enthusiast. What other molesters do they throw their support behind?

Tide Pods and "gun control"

March 5, 2018

Does eating Tide Pods kill off the regions of the brain responsible for rational thought, so that those who have taken that “challenge” lose the ability to avoid supporting anti-gun “laws”

Or, are really stupid and gullible people just more likely to fall for both self-destructive things?

Does it matter what causes the stupidity? (See how I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt by not automatically assuming they are all simply evil?)

From now on when I see some teen or young “adult” out whining for the State to rape the populace of America in the name of “gun control”, I’ll picture the little darling uttering his words of stupidity while chewing on a Tide Pod, foam dripping from his flapping lips.

Libertarianism means respect

March 4, 2018

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for January 31, 2018)

I am not libertarian because I expect to get anything from it.  Well, that’s not completely true.  I should say I am not libertarian because I expect to get anything from you because of it. I don’t even necessarily expect civilized behavior from others.

Respect for life, liberty, and property– without excuses– is the hallmark of both libertarianism and civilization. I expect civilized behavior only from other libertarians, and not even all of them manage to deliver. After all, they are still only human.

I am libertarian because I don’t have any desire to own you, nor do I wish to be owned. I am libertarian because I recognize your life and the products of your life– your property– are yours, alone, to use as you wish, as long as you don’t violate anyone else. I am libertarian because I expect to be treated as I treat you, while exercising the right to defend myself and others against any who refuse to cooperate.

I don’t want something for nothing. I’m not libertarian because I hate roads, parks, libraries, and food safety. I am libertarian because I know my appreciation for something doesn’t justify forcing you to pay for it against your will. I am perfectly willing to pay for what I use– however, I want to be able to choose the provider I buy the service from, and I want to be able to opt out of things I have no use for, such as police. Monopolies never serve customers’ needs adequately, and never survive long without government favoritism. I prefer free enterprise, liberated markets, competition, and options over mandatory “one-size-fits-all” monopolies.

One precious thing I get from being libertarian is freedom from the stress of trying to control your life. You do your thing, and as long as you don’t try to stop me from doing mine, and you violate no one, we’ll have no problem.

Unfortunately, the non-libertarian crowd seems to find this civilized compromise unacceptable. They can’t abide something so mature and respectful; based on mutual consent.

It doesn’t change how I’ll live, though. I won’t call for anyone’s life, liberty, and property to be violated simply because they can’t respect mine. I support self-defense for anyone being violated for any reason, and I hope the bullies learn about actions and consequences before it’s too late.  Someone has to take the first step toward maturity when dealing with others. Let’s take the step together.

Not all molestation is sexual

March 1, 2018

All cops are molesters. Not all of them are necessarily sexual predators.

Sure, that Oklahoma cop who was raping women he pulled over was a sexual molester. So were those New York City cops who raped the girl then tried to say it was consensual. And the Texas cops who “searched for drugs” inside the woman’s vagina after she was pulled over. And… well, I could go on with thousands of examples. Probably not all cops have sexually molested people, but all cops are molesters. Worse, they are paid stolen money to molest people.

Your “polite” neighbors believe cops have a legitimate function: to molest bad guys by stopping them from hurting people or violating property. And if they actually did that without molesting the rest of us, I wouldn’t be completely against policing. But they don’t– because they can’t. Molestation is built into the “job” and is a result of every encounter with them.

“Molest” simply means “to bother, interfere with, or annoy“. You can do that non-sexually. And that is most definitely what cops do. Cops are molesters. Not every cop is molesting at every moment, but all cops molest or they get fired for “not doing their job”.

Traffic stops are molestation.
Drug “arrests” are molestation.
Weapon “arrests” are molestation.
Property code enforcement is molestation.
“Checkpoints” are molestation.
Having a cop driving down the road behind you is molestation, because it is a threat to your life, liberty, and property.
A cop walking up to you and demanding ID is molesting you.

Add that word to your toolkit of descriptors for police officers, along with “pig”*, badgescum”, “jabbut” (JBT/jack-booted thug), “reaver”, “Blue Line Gang member”, “Popo”, “Hero”, “Registered Liberty Offender”, “Barney”, etc.

When you see a cop, think “Molester”.


 *I don’t like calling cops “pigs”, because pigs are intelligent, sensitive, useful animals of value. Totally unlike cops.
