He should know incompetence. He’s part of the Fannie and Freddie mess. His hands aren’t clean by any means.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: “Never waste a good crisis”

Never waste a good crisis, Clinton says on climate

Sat Mar 7, 2009 1:44am IST

By Pete Harrison

*** begin quote ***

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience Friday “never waste a good crisis,” and highlighted the opportunity of rebuilding economies in a greener, less energy-intensive way.

*** end quote ***

The socialists, who want to boss us around, are rubbing our nose in it.

They think it’s good policy.

The sheeple don’t even notice it.

Time for a tax revolt.

“Never waste a good crisis” to force some of the slugs out of office.

LIBERTY: Nationalization is one more step to the death camps

The Nationalization Debate Comes Out Of The Closet

*** begin quote ***

We’re finally beginning to remove the ideological blinders (socialism, socialism!) from our eyes and look at all possible ways to fix the liquidity crisis. This otherwise good NY Times article explores the pros & cons of nationalization but leaves out an important pro they’ve reported on in the past: it’s the most transparent, honest approach

*** end quote ***

Yeah, the gooferment is sooo honest. So good at everything they touch.

Sorry, it’s all about control.

Think Japanese Internment, the Civil War, and the Carter Inflation.

We’re all sheep. Being herded. Lucky if we just get sheared.

Government is dangerous.

Where’s my pitchfork and torch?

LIBERTY: Fix it before it kills us!

The End of the World…Maybe

*** begin quote ***

“Commandments” is an incorrect translation; “Utterances” or “Words” is much more accurate. I prefer “Laws,” as in “Natural Laws.” If you break them, bad things automatically happen. No cops are needed. The 20th century was a time of worshipping the false idols of Man and State, in violation of the First Law (“have no other gods but the one true God”). It doesn’t matter to me if people believe in any sort of God or not; these Ten Laws still exist, and violation of their practical wisdom brings unhappiness, destruction and death. You can say, “As you sow, you reap,” or “What goes around, comes around,” or karma (“the moral law of cause and effect”) or kismet, or the Tao, or whatever name you want to give it. Those laws are part of human nature.

*** and ***

And if people can’t do it, it’s doubly forbidden for governments (which in a sense don’t really exist, since they are composed of people). The big difference is that governments try to claim a monopoly on force, which makes them unimaginably destructive. I’ve read estimates that up to 200 million people died in the 20th century at the hands of various governments. And all because of the violation of “You shall not murder.”

*** and ***

If I was King, I would take all the Christians and Jews who support Israel (and send money there) and deport them all over there. I would do the same with Muslims here who support the Islamic countries. As it stands right now, the US government is involved in 4,000-year-old tribal warfare, and is in fact supporting both sides in the conflict.

*** end quote ***


First, the author points out timeless principles. Then, he proceeds to break them by using force on people.

I think one of those timeless principles is the “Zero Aggression Principle”. In my mind, I am moral, as admonished by most major religions or philosophies, to not initiate force on others. ZAP as the Libertarians call it.

Government — be it Kings, Presidents, or Tyrants all the same — seeks to force youto conform to its wishes. It robs Peter to enrich Paul while deducting a huge chuck for its “services”.

Sorry, sovereign individuals need no tyrants to tell them what to do. Government’s only legitimate role is to preserve the peace and ensure rights. The jury is still out if it can do that. Not very successful so far.

Maybe it’s time for a new meme to replace “government”. Examine your paradigms and memes for a replacement? I don’t have one but I’m looking.

Fix it before it kills us!

POLITICAL: Think badly about O and get a visit from the Secret Service?

Number 495, November 30, 2008
“The Thought Police have arrived.”

Entering the Age of O-ppression? by William Warren

Special to The Libertarian Enterprise

*** begin quote ***

“I certainly feel like they were trying to make me be quiet and trying to intimidate me and take away my free speech… That’s what really enraged me is that I thought ‘there’s a lot of people out there that if [the secret service] showed up on their porch, that’s exactly what they’d do—they’d be quiet’… I wasn’t going to be the one.”—Jessica Hughes, in an exclusive interview with ALG News, November 20th, 2008.

In the face of insurmountable intimidation and bullying from armed Obama lieutenants, Jessica Hughes of Lufkin Texas has remained defiant—like any good American who values free speech and views dissent as a patriotic duty.

*** end quote ***

Obviously, things are not going to improve with the “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS” when one doesn’t agree with the Obama “true believers”.

RANT: 90 days in prison for refusing to stand

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal” is a concept taught in American schools as a fundamental truth that all people are deserving of respect and life and prosperity. Why then is Ian Freeman in prison for the next 100 days?

Here’s the video! I still think this is an over-reaction by the gooferment. Like Gandhi, Ian is showing them up for what they are. A gang writ large.
