what day is it?

July 4th is flags, beer, barbecue and fireworks. What for? All of our lawyers are contracted affiliates of the British Bar Association. Sixty percent of the USofA senators and 43% of our congresscritters are lawyers. British bankers own “our” federal reserve, and, thus complete control of our money. So Brits own our courts, our legislature and our economy. What exactly did the colonists of 1776 win independence from? And about this flag USofA politicians, courts and ENFORCERS of their laws wave around… It is The Flag Of The Admiralty. What exactly are you celebrating?

suppressors

I endured the expensive and long process currently required to gain permission from our rulers to own a sound suppressor for my rifle. Over 9 months and $1,000 for a hundred dollar part that enables your neighbors to go about their business without noise pollution should you choose to sight in or practice with a firearm. Darn near a year for some faceless apparatchik to affix a rubber stamp and signature to my papers. Precious few of us bother. Therefore one person’s shooting is an entire neighborhood’s disturbing the peace. I repurposed a .223 AR-15 rifle into a 300 AAC Blackout, mounted the scope without proper tools, or any experience for that matter, and got help mounting “the can”. […]

redirecting the pro-life effort

I have been an active Libertarian for most of the last 16 years. I have likely been to four score or more meetings of libertarians. Often the discussion moves rapidly over areas of agreement to focus on animated discussions where we do not agree. The pro-life vs pro-choice question is one of the main ones. Nobody wins that argument. Remember, this is a group that eschews existing rules and rulers in favor of philosophically proper and theoretically pure. No pre-existing guidelines carry weight in these arguments. For us there is no agreed upon role for government in this question. That means neither paying for abortions nor monitoring and controlling womens’ reproductive systems. Those who would use government force to ban […]

happy days

I am not believing in DC magic. I do not expect to see the Potomac Swamp drained. Money, power, vice and corruption will remain far more popular than liberty. BUT, I won’t have to see bits and pieces of that nauseating synchronized show where the Clinton, Obama and Media whores constantly lie to a worshiping audience of trusting souls who I could otherwise happily share Earth with. Photos and quotes from those two disgusting pseudo-humans will finally drop off my news feeds. The media and The White House will be at odds instead of teammates. THAT loss of power is a glorious benefit to the election results if nothing else improves. Not much else is assured, but those are […]

new marshal in town

As I write, it is past midnight, January 20th in Washington DC. Donald Trump, whose records are not sealed and birth certificate not forged, is the POTUS. The First Lady is a woman. The paid and volunteer rioters did their thing, but none of it horrible. Maybe 2 million bikers made a difference, or DC police, military, Secret Service, those portions of the FBI who didn’t like the official direction of the prior administration, or dozens of other groups. No matter. I am thrilled that Soros and company failed one more time. We have escaped the scourge that has been, and was scheduled to continue control to the bitter end. The destroyers have to develop new plans. Don’t worry for […]

Michigan to end daylight savings time?

On their first day in the new legislative session in Lansing, a group of state lawmakers introduced a bill to end Daylight Saving Time in Michigan. The bill would make Eastern Standard Time the official time zone for the entire state and eliminate setting the clocks backward or forward. The article from CBS-Detroit includes a poll which indicates about 2/3rds of us would love to see it gone. As with most online polls, you have to vote to see the results. Of all the meddling legislators do in each session, undoing stupid stuff rarely gets much consideration. It is nice that some of them, somewhere at least consider this one. A possible majority in one out of 49 state […]

Can’t shoot the messenger?

Pick a random target and shoot them. Or maybe the target is not so random… I don’t figure I need to put up links. Ya’all know the leaked e-mails exposed the Clintons, the DNC, Obama, the Clinton Foundation and many top level officials for corruption, election rigging, pedophilia, a trail of lies, bribes, bombs and dead bodies. Real media, real investigative journalism would have these people and these stories laid bare before an outraged populace. But the presstitutes are lockstep hammering “the Russians” for hacking the Clinton’s illegal computer system that the secretary of state used instead of the computer system belonging to the US State Department that she was required to use (felony, treason). Evidence of this Russian hack: […]

the right people lost

Yesterday, my Al-Gore-style-environmentalist acolyte daughter asked me if I was a Trump fan. She was relieved by my answer… until I said I was at least pleased that his victory over the other leading choice at least moved us further from nuclear WWIII. She felt the opposite was true. The knowledge gap is too great to be leapt with a single bound. I learned long ago that my family members living in la-la-land are surrounded by, immersed in a sea of humanity, all hearing the same voices in their heads. You know the voices, the ones mainstream media incessantly drone on their FCC-licensed monopoly airwaves. Elite Californians are not only ignorant of the other side, they feel quite superior in […]
