9.  NLRB Exposing Catholic Identity Concerns

The number of Catholic colleges challenging the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) continues to grow. The problems with this trend are twofold: One, the NLRB is exercising unconstitutional government oversight in attempting to determine whether or not a college is sufficiently Catholic; and two, the test applied to the colleges is exposing major Catholic identity concerns. Colleges opposing NLRB rulings now include Carroll College, Duquesne University, Manhattan College, Saint Xavier University, Seattle University and Loyola University Chicago.

In the Newman Society’s amicus brief opposing the NLRB harassment, attorneys for Alliance Defending Freedom stated:

Religious organizations have the right of autonomy over their internal governance, the right to be treated the same as all other religious groups and denominations by the government, and the right to be free from government meddling and intrusion in their operations and beliefs.

*** end quote ***

First, they come for the Catholic Schools?

Remember Gooferment Skrules are deliberately creating cannon fodder for the Army, willing morons for the factories, and useful idiots to vote for and be led by the elite.

They promote and propagandize the greatest of the State who solves all problems. Worship the Earth because there can’t be any God. It might limit the State which is the current God of Man.

Argh!

Dumb.

But, how do we get “We, The Sheeple” to stop it?

imho, the thing will eventually collapse under its own weight. 

Look at how much it costs. Look at how the Teacher’s Union protects it and Big Gooferment. Look at the terrible results it produces.

The minute that the Black minority realizes how they have been screwed by the Gooferment Skrules, then things will change.

Wise up people.

Factoid: The only President that send his child to a Gooferment Skrule was Jimmy Carter. Why doesn’t anyone else? Why should anyone else?

Argh!

LIBERTY: SIX DECADES of misery

The ever-growing number of Americans who are joining the liberty movement are not interested in “reforming” the welfare-warfare state. They also have no interest in “fixing” the Federal Reserve via “rules-based” monetary policy. Instead, this movement is dedicated to auditing, then ending, the Fed and stopping the government from trying to run the economy, run the world, and run our lives. If this movement refuses to compromise its principles, we may succeed in restoring a society of liberty, peace, and prosperity in our lifetimes.

*** end quote ***

In addressing the “welfare” part of the welfare-warfare state, it’s unfortunate that those of us that want to “end welfare as we know it” are portrayed as heartless unfeeling Ebenezer Scrooges.

In actuality, nothing could be further than the truth.

If you look on the Gooferment’s failed “war on poverty”, then you will see whole GENERATIONS lost to the despair of “welfare”. Politicians and bureaucrats — mostly D’s — and “community organizers” have developed a “poverty industry” that they siphon off of. Argh!

We have more than SIX DECADES of the current system, with no end in sight of misery.

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” — attributed to Einstein

So WHY can’t we try something different?

* Eliminate the minimum wage by phasing it out over 20 years. That would do wonders for black youth unemployment.

* Eliminate the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” that sends so many poor people to prison, impoverishes them, and limits their employment opportunities. And BTW inflicts crime and violence on the poor disproportionately!

* Eliminate the handouts by phasing them out over 20 years. Reduce them 5% per year. 

* Eliminate the various and sundry “regulations” on the States concerning “welfare”.

* Eliminate the Crony Capitalism “regulations” of “licensing” various things like hair braiding, Uber driving, and all sorts of other stupidity.

* Eliminate the tremendous “take” off the poor by the various forms of Gooferment lotteries. 

Americans are very charitable. If the taxes are reduced by reducing the welfare burden, then true charity will spring up to help the truly needy with real help. I cite Homefront NJ as an example of what a real community can do. (And, from whom, I was taught that the “welfare bureaucracy” needs lots of “clients” to justify their continued existence.)

Argh!

Why can’t we have an experiment to see if this wouldn’t work so much better?

Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats, as well as all those that make fine living off the current system. 

Argh! SQUARED.

LIBERTY: A libertarian view of when to go to war

Speaking about this Afgan thing, I made a comment the other day something to the effect that if you have to go to war … … … and I explained what an ugly business war is … … how violent it is, how innocent people wind up getting killed, we should never ever ever ever go to war unless our liberty is directly threatened, unless the risk to our way of life exists. And, I use that as the standard to go. The liberty within our shores. What I advocate on this show is a defensive posture. A defensive military. A miltary that defends our borders much the way that Japan had for many years after World War 2. … … But if you have to fight, if Liberty is directly threatened, well then there are no holds barred. If we are going to go out and we know where the enemy is, then we bomb the city and then we bomb it again and rearrange the pieces because we understand that we will lose the greatest gift that God has given us if we don’t stand up and fight.”

*** end quote ***

This is the best description of my feelings on “war”. As a little L libertarian, a porcupine, a Free State Project mover, this is what I want the “Department of Defense” to be.

Sorry but we never needed “Homeland Security” if the “Department of Defense” was doing its job.

Argh!

The Zero Aggression Principle doesn’t mean you don’t fight. It means you never start one. But if you get into one then you just win.

Argh!

How To Stamp Out Cultural Marxism In A Single Generation
By Brandon Smith

October 26, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Demand that society respect your inherent individual rights: Collectivism’s ultimate propaganda message is that there is no such thing as inherent rights or liberties and that all rights are arbitrary and subject to the whims of the group or the state. This is false. I have written extensively in the past on inherent rights, inborn psychological contents and natural law, referencing diverse luminaries, scientists and thinkers, including Thomas Aquinas, Carl Gustave Jung, Steven Pinker, etc., and I welcome readers to study my many articles on individualism. Freedom is an inborn conception with universally understood aspects. Period. No group or collective is more important than individual liberty. No artificial society has preeminence over the individuals within that society. As long as a person is not directly impeding the life, liberty, prosperity and privacy of another person, he should be left alone.

Maintain your rights; they do not hurt other people: PC cultists will invariably argue that every person, whether he knows it or not, is indirectly harming others with his attitude, his beliefs, his refusal to associate, even his very breathing. “We live in a society”, they say, “and everything we do affects everyone else…”. Don’t take such accusations seriously; these people do not understand how freedom works.

*** end quote ***

Sorry I am not politically correct.

(I know because a beautiful young woman bought me a t-shirt that says “#nofilter”. And, my friends just shake their head at my crazy rantings, like ZAP, gold coins, and the various forms of tin foil hat conspiracy theory questions I ask.)

Our rights come from God or the Universe or our essential humanity.

They are not open to debate. And, “molon labe”, try to take them from me.

“…if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” -Churchill, The Second World War, vol. 1, The Gathering Storm (London: Cassell, 1948, 272, on the British guarantee to Poland in Spring 1939.

Negative rights are basically peaceful. 

Translated in to the language of children, since that seems to be the comprehension level of “We, The Sheeple” — don’t hurt people or take their stuff.

Dona Nobis Pacem

LIBERTY: Dig us out of the Gooferment Skrules “hole” in 40 years

Charter Schools Are A Shell Game: Get Government Completely Out of Education
10/16/2015
By Chris Rossini

*** begin quote ***

One of last bastions of full-blown socialist policies around the world is in the area of education. Control of education is the crown jewel of government control. After all, if the world moves in the direction of the most dominant ideas, it is of the utmost importance to government to force you to adopt its ideas. Government has you for the first 18 years of your life (at least). Then the government’s media picks up where the schools leave off, and take over from there.

No matter how much failure the government’s school “system” produces, and no matter how many resources are flushed down the drain, it will fight tooth and nail (to the very end) to maintain control of education.

Despite the fact that this so-called education has become so horrendous (as parents who are currently dealing with “Common Core” can attest to), the cries are always for “fixes”. Of course, demands for more money to toss into the black hole are a given. But, again, as Von Mises proved, socialism cannot be fixed.

One of the more recent fixes are called “Charter Schools”.

*** end quote ***

So, we need to “sell” a 40 year plan to return Gooferment Skrules to the parents to fund and the marketplace to satisfy.

I say 40 years because it took 70 years to create this mess.

First 20 years is to return school choice to the parents and divest the infrastructure to the teachers by freeing 5% of the students to go where they want; second 20 years is to reduce the Gooferment “contribution” 5% per year until it’s zero.

Easy peasy!

LIBERTY: The Separation of Education and State

Poll Results: When Should Schools Open?
Because Labor Day was a bit late this year, some schools, including South Brunswick, opted to open before the holiday.

Frankly, the Government should not be involved in education at all. Hence the discussion of the terms and conditions of schools and “education” would not be a matter of public concern; it would be between the privately run school and the parents or guardians. 

“We, The Sheeple” have accepted the Progressives contention that “school is too important to be left to parents”. Remember that the Prussian model of education that was brought to the US from Germany had three goals: cannon fodder for the Army, willing morons for the factories, and useful idiots to vote for and be led by the elite. Note that today’s elite NEVER send their children to public schools. With Jimmy Carter as the notable exception.

It will admittedly take decades to unravel this immoral, ineffective, and inefficient system that has developed over the last 70 years or so. But that doesn’t mean we should shirk away from the hard task of rescuing the children from the slavery of Gooferment propaganda and the tyranny of low expectations.

I’ll have to find or recreate my 40 year proposal that I created for the Hands Across New Jersey tax revolt group in the 80’s. If I could have “sold” that plan then, we’d be five years from a truly free market in education.

Argh!
