POLITICAL: Taxation is the fuel of war

Well written, basic little L libertarian doctrine.


*** begin quote ***

We must choose a different course. No one who claims to be a libertarian can deny that taxation—having begun as nothing more than simple banditry—represents an institution nearly as ancient as Humankind itself. Nor that taxation is still theft. Nor that taxation is slavery. Nor that taxation is the fuel of war. I will reiterate: taxation is theft. Taxation is slavery. And taxation is the fuel of war.

TECHNOLOGY: Use multiple email accounts to identify spam

This is a guaranteed spam. It came in on the “wrong email account”. I use specific pre-defined email accounts for different purposes. For example, “bank able 1234 @ reinke doc cc” or “bank baker 6789 @ reinke dot cc”. Thus if I receive an email on ANY account but the right one (i.e. bank able message on bank baker’s account), there’s no doubt it’s spam. And, it’s not just bank name @ account, but bank name with random string to prevent a spammer from guessing. If I “see” an alpha attack on the account to find the suffix, I can just change the fixed part of the string. I’ve been preaching the strategy to any one who will listen. Since you have a bigger platform, maybe you’ll recommend the advice to your readers. fjohn, the big fat old blogger hisself

QUOTE: “You’re an extremist!”

“If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist.”

— Joe Sobran (1946–2010)
