When It Stopped Being Against The Law

We have hordes of socons bemoaning the gay marriage ruling of he Supreme Court. Where did this country go wrong? I wrote the following in response to this commenter who was decrying the fact that the Government was no longer following God’s law and was allowing abnormal behavior. I replied: If it is abnormal behavior […]

Hell in a bucket, anyone?

That’s where a lot of people say we’re headed, especially these days. I am reminded of this classic. (Not a new idea….)  

There Is A War On

An interview with a police officer – Radley Balko. The officer says: I had an awakening. I remember it very well. I was doing narcotics work. And so I was spending a lot of time doing surveillance in a van, or in some vacant building. You have a lot of time on your hands with […]

Gun Control – Poor And Minorities Hit Hardest

From Salon Magazine Gun control’s racist reality: The liberal argument against giving police more power Well isn’t that interesting. And from Salon? Big surprise there. There is no reason to expect fair enforcement of gun control laws, or even that they will mainly be used to someone prevent these massacres. That is because how our […]

“not something that we have ever fully come to terms with”

In light of the horrible massacre by an admitted racist and terrorist, President Obama has issued a renewed call for gun control. “Unfortunately, the grip of the NRA on Congress is extremely strong,” Obama said in a clip of the interview with “WTF with Marc Maron” posted by the New York Times. It was not the […]

The Origins Of The 2008 Crisis

I have no love for the bankers. But it wasn’t them. They just played along with the game because that is where the big profits were. The game went something like this – SJW “there are under served minorities” Bankers – “their record of repayment is not good” SJW – “we will rate their paper […]

Against Profit

    If you are against profit quit eating. You profit from it.    

Alternate Headline – Armed Churchgoer Stops Rampage Shooting

Except it is not an alternate headline – it happened in Aurora, Colorado. “Police said two vehicles ended up in the church parking lot after some sort of argument between the drivers. Police said one vehicle was chasing the other. The man who was being chased got out of his vehicle and entered the church […]

Either way, gun control works! Right?

Speaking of things that don’t pass my smell test, here’s another piece of weirdness. Media reports do not agree on whether the Charleston shooter bought the gun himself, or his father bought it for him. According to CNN, Roof bought the gun himself: One key part of this horrific scheme — the weapon — came in […]

Huh?

I don’t post as often as I should, but right now I’m curious about something. Since when does a white supremacist gunman, lover of racist states like Rhodesia, apartheid South Africa, and the Confederate States of America have black friends? According to a number of reports, many of the man’s Facebook friends were black. And […]

Over Medicating Veterans

    I was in the Marine Corps for 11 years and did two combat tours before being medically discharged. After coming back home, I was put on 40 different medications over the course of five years. In 2012, after watching a documentary, I decided to try cannabis. I felt more relaxed after one joint […]

The War On Abused Children

I’m having a conversation with an avowed Prohibitionist. He says that only 5% (the number of signatures gathered for a ballot initiative) of the Ohio population favors an end to Prohibition and he assumes that 5% are all users. My response (slightly revised): The usual number is about one in ten. And another 4.5 in […]

Houston? We No Longer Have A Problem

The space probe that landed on a comet, once thought to be dead, is now alive. To scientists’ relief and delight, the Philae spacecraft that landed on a comet last fall has woken up and communicated with Earth after seven long months of silence, the European Space Agency announced Sunday. Philae became the first spacecraft […]

Just Like The Soviet Union But With Democracy

Reason Magazine has a story about Secret Police and Informants. It happens at Ole Miss. It happens at Florida State. I think this explains why kids are turning against prohibition. Notice the pig about 5:30 into the video. And for all you animal lovers I mean no disrespect to pigs. But when a supposed human […]

“Nothing To Do Anymore With Environmental Protection”

From a Climate Summit Past: Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection, says the German economist and IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer. The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated. – Ottmar Edenhofer Figures it would be […]

All your records are belong to us!

Another day, another gigantic Big Hack Attack. Not to sound like a nutjob, but sometimes I wonder who is hacking who. OPM officials said as recently as Thursday evening that they believed 4.2 million people—including 2.1 million current employees—were affected by the breach, but the background-investigation form breach suggests the number could be larger. The […]

Without The Police, We’d Be At The Mercy Of Lawless Thugs

From Reason Magazine: Cops in Santa Ana, California, donned ski masks to break and enter into a local medical marijuana dispensary, raiding it with guns drawn in a May 27 police action. They then proceeded to remove surveillance cameras and recording equipment, but they didn’t remove it all. Video from a camera they didn’t disable […]

What Is Slavery

What is slavery? Well let us suppose Jewish rules applied (look up Jewish laws on slavery if the topic interests you). It is saying, “You can manage my life better than I can.” What does government tell us these days? “We can manage your life better than you can.” I really wish the anti-slavers applied […]

It Is Starting To Become A Trend

I started posting this phrase around a few months back and now I’m staring to see it more and more frequently.     He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
