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

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.

Why sacrifice your children to him?

March 11, 2018

Horace Mann’s “lethal monster” – that’s what Jim Davies called kinderprison. That’s a pretty accurate description of that obsolete institution of compliance and indoctrination. Oh, it works pretty well for compliance and indoctrination, just not at all well for education, which is the lie which is told to justify it.

It seems Horace Mann would be reviled by all who value education and liberty, and honored by those who support the Prussian System of child abuse.

Many “parents” support government schools as a babysitting service. They could get a better deal if they kept the money which is stolen in support of the schools, and spent it somewhere that competed for their business. I’ll bet more actual education would be offered, as well.

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?

Any tyranny is too much tyranny

March 7, 2018

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for March 7, 2018)

How much is enough?

When it turns out stronger anti-drug “laws” don’t prevent addiction or tragedies, how much are you willing to expand prohibition? How far are you willing to have armed government employees go– on your behalf– to impose your opinions?

Would you approve of permanent checkpoints on all roads? Do you favor banning the manufacture of any and all chemicals which could possibly be combined to make substances you are willing to kill people over?..read the rest

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.

Government "ethics"

February 25, 2018

That’s a phrase that amuses and bewilders me: government ethics.

How can a criminal gang have ethics? Now, I would argue they can have morals— worthless, harmful morals. But, actual ethics? No.

What kind of “ethics” leaves room for “taxation“, kidnapping, mass murder, prohibition, slavery, and other forms of archation? Only government “ethics”.

You might as well be talking about the ethics of muggers or child molesters.

The Little Engine that could, but chose not to

February 20, 2018

There once was a Little Engine.
It wasn’t the biggest or the strongest engine, but it was a good little engine. It loved being useful and it loved helping when it could. This didn’t pay well, and the Little Engine often ran short of fuel.
The Little Engine was told about a job for which a train was needed. A job that paid well. A job that was said to be helpful; hauling government troops and their equipment over a steep mountain to their next destination.
It wouldn’t be an easy job but would push the Little Engine to its limits.
All its friends encouraged the Little Engine to do what they knew it was capable of. They knew it could get that job hauling troops over the mountain, even though the mountain was very steep, and usually only much more powerful engines did the job. They knew the Little Engine had heart, and a reserve of strength. The engine’s friends kept saying “We know you can do it! It’s a respectable job; supporting the troops! It pays well! You can do it! You can do it!
But the little engine knew that the troops were armed government employees, used to impose the opinions of political bullies on others, by breaking things and killing people in places they have no right to be. The little engine knew that the troops were paid by a type of theft called “taxation”, and that the pay for hauling the troops over the mountain would be obtained the same way.
The Little Engine had ethics and principles.
The Little Engine knew it could, but knew it shouldn’t.
The Little Engine refused the job and was shut down by the federal government for being a suspected terrorist sympathizer.

The End.

Paraphrased from Jurrasic Park‘s Dr. Ian Malcolm:
Humans were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.

Umbridges galore

February 19, 2018
Dolores Umbridge-
famous fictional pecksniff

There is no difference between those who use their distaste for some forms of consensual sex, drugs, or “immigrants” [sic]– and their drive to “protect the culture” or morals from those things by way of government or “laws“– and those who do the same thing with guns. None.

The “cost to society” excuse is a handy tool for both types of anti-liberty bigot to use against rights they don’t like.

It’s just a game of justifying being a control freak.

And I see it a lot. One type of statist wants to protect society from some liberties, while other statists want to protect society from the other liberties. Until there is no liberty left– and the moralizing bullies still will never be content. It’s never enough for them.

I realize they believe they are protecting fragile order from the chaos of people just “doing whatever they want, with no regard to consequences“. They’ll admit as much. The problem is “just doing whatever they want, with no regard to consequences” applies identically to the control freaks and anti-liberty bigots. They are what they rail against. Too much order is as deadly as too much chaos.

Liberty is never up to their approval. Thank goodness!

Dawkins’ religious error

February 16, 2018

And I’ll go further than that, since I was severely limited by Twitter’s character count. Here’s the link to the tweet, in case you’re interested.

Taking away someone’s “Comfort Blanky” is also something you have no right to do. For the same reason you have no right to take someone’s gun, house, car, money, or any other property. You have no right to violate the property rights of others. Period. It’s a right that can’t exist. Not seeing this is a blind spot caused by religious belief.

I’m sorry if you are offended that I said “thoughts and prayers” are useless. I know that’s not quite true– at the minimum they make people feel better when there’s nothing real they can do about a bad situation. And, they can let a hurting person know (if they are informed about them) that someone cares and wishes they could help. I’m unconvinced about any usefulness beyond that, but would love to be proved wrong But I needed some common ground with Dawkins here.

I know Dawkins is famous for his atheism, but you and I know he isn’t an atheist because he still believes in The State due to his superstitious belief in “authority” (new link, hope it works now). You can’t be an atheist, by definition, if you believe in any gods whatsoever and believe in any religion. Statism is not only a religion, it’s the most popular religion on the planet by a wide margin.

I already see people agreeing with Dawkins because they don’t understand rights in the slightest, and one guy even believes someone once took away my “right” to own slaves- a right that can’t exist any more than a right to steal can exist. People are dumb. I am an abolitionist. I know slavery is always wrong, no matter how you dress it up. It is a violation of life, liberty, and property. Anti-liberty bigots (and theft advocates) are the ethical equivalent to slavers. No, that’s not quite right. Statists ARE slavers.

Religious beliefs can make you advocate atrocities if you refuse to think critically. Don’t make Dawkins’ error.
