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

Hooray for smugglers!

March 19, 2018

Smuggling. What a funny little non-crime. I can’t even wrap my mind around any possible way it could be wrong. It’s just the act of going around a bully who’s standing in your way, wanting to rob you or prevent you from getting products to those who want them.

Here’s the “legal definition” of smuggling:

The criminal offense of bringing into, or removing from, a country those items that are prohibited or upon which customs or excise duties have not been paid.

The only wrongs I see there are prohibition and taxation. Those are the acts of the State, not those trying to get around the State. So, yeah, smuggling is an indication of a crime, but not a crime committed by the smugglers.

And there are a lot of other non-crimes like this: “money laundering”, “tax avoidance”, “evading arrest”, “assaulting an officer”, etc. “Crimes” that no one would even bother with, except that government and its “laws” have made them necessary as a way to avoid being violated by the State. To all those who commit this kind of “crime”, I say Thank you for your service!

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.

Armed and dangerous

March 15, 2018

I support the right of every human to own and to carry a gun. Period. That doesn’t mean I trust every armed person. There are some people who simply can not be trusted with guns, even though they have the right to own and carry them and no one has the right to forbid it. Those are separate issues.

I’ve known some of those who couldn’t be trusted with a gun. They are simply too dangerous or unstable to trust. With or without a gun.

A guy who comes to mind was very reckless, spastic, and impulsive. I went out shooting with him once. Only once. Never again. He had no muzzle awareness and wouldn’t keep his finger off the trigger. He left town saying it was his intention to join the military– they deserved the likes of him.

No one who would wear a government uniform can be trusted with a gun– and that especially applies to cops. I don’t trust them with a gun any more than I would trust an angry diseased monkey with a loaded and cocked gun with a hair trigger and no safety. Anyone who would demean themselves enough to become a government tool obviously has serious issues with authoritarianism and aggression.

This doesn’t mean I’ll ask government to keep guns out of their hands. It means I will consider them dangerous morons and always try to stay away from them. It means I will warn others to be alert around them. This sort of person deserves to be shunned to death unless they grow up and take responsibility– which would begin with shedding the uniform and making an honest effort at becoming a good guy.

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.

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? the rest

Prime Archators

March 6, 2018

A Prime Archator is a person who is at the top of a government, especially a national government.

This includes presidents, prime ministers, kings and queens, tsars, or any other such positions which rely on the belief in political “authority“.

These are the people who instruct others to archate on behalf of the State.

I suppose you could have minor Prime Archators, too. Mayors, police chiefs, and the head of other gangs which live by archation could be Prime Archators in their limited realm.

It’s bad enough to be an archator. It’s orders of magnitude worse to be a Prime Archator.

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.
