Politicians and bureaucrats make diktats. 

It’s why we should have a marketplace.

May sound ghoulish, but it’s the only fair way to do things.

POLITICAL: We will never be at peace

*** begin quote ***

Gingrich went on to criticize the Obama administration for ignoring the threat that radical Islam poses to civilized society.

“No one wants to talk honestly about the fact that there is a radical Islamism on offense,” Gingrich said. “It is on offense across the planet…We will never be at peace in the pre-1941 sense that we are not threatened and that we don’t have to actively take measures all the time.”

*** end quote ***

If we don’t recognize the enemy and our contribution to the problem, how can we ever have peace?

The R’s and the D’s both support the warfare / welfare / crony phony corporatism. 

You expect them to change?

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Stockholm Parking Tickets?

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

*** begin quote ***

For the past week, immigrant youths rioted in Sweden. Riots that included the breaking of windows, rock-throwing at police, destruction of property and burning of cars. Swedish police tell the Associated Press that some 220 crimes were reported to them during the violent rampage.

But instead of cracking down on the perpetrators, authorities were busy issuing parking tickets on cars that were burned by the rioters. The conservative Swedish news site Fria Tider reports that owners of some cars destroyed in the riots were fined for parking illegally, while the Swedish police force described a low-key approach to the rioters themselves. Its reporter caught a parking enforcer in the act of issuing a ticket, and shot a photo, published above the headline “Parking Tickets Issued on Wrecks While Stockholm Burns.”

You just have to laugh!

Get your car destroyed by lawless thugs and a parking ticket too!

Wonder when it ail happen here?

INTERESTING: Weigh your choices?

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

It’s easy to tell others to take risks. It’s harder to live by that rule, especially if you’re wise enough to consider the consequences. Have faith. Take a leap and trust that someone will catch you.

Weigh your choices.

Don’t hesitate to give to a stranger but don’t give everything away.

Be who you are. Everybody else is taken

*** end quote ***

I’m not sure that you can “weigh” choices?

I used to think that way. Even had software, later spreadsheets, later mind maps, all to define the “choosing process”.

Some decisions turned out well; others poorly. It really had little to do with anything.

Like watching poker on TV. The best decision can work out poorly based on luck.

So, like the poker pro, you try to play the odds as best you can and roll with the punches.

A lot of the results depend upon “luck”.

There are really no “wrong” decisions.

Argh! Life is hard and then you die.

RANT: Memorial Day movies

Interesting the “war movies” on TCM and ACM …

… maybe when I was a yute this propaganda would work. 

Now I’m much more of a skeptic!

RANT: Memorial Day?

Monday, May 27, 2013

On today, one has to wonder what the Clovers and Sheeple really think.

When we have “Wounded Warriors” on TV begging for 19 bucks a month for aid to the returning WIA … …

When we have a confused unwinnable mission … …

When we have a citizenry uninvolved in the mission … …

When we have not fulfilled the conditions for a “Just War” … …

When we have girls and boys in Harm’s way and it’s ignored … …

… then you have to question just how “grateful” the Nation is!
