Announcement

On my primary blog I have made an announcement:

As I write this a full moon is setting to the west. A friend recently suggested that I stand for the office of President of the United States.  After giving the concept some thought I have decided to do so. My fundamental goal as President will be to restore complete compliance of the Federal Government to the Constitution and the complete sovereignty of our nation with respect to the transnational order. And I fully look forward to interaction with the Fourth Estate:
Reporter: Mr. Bates, how do you as a Christian Conservative justify your opposition to Social Justice? Candidate LB: Good question.  Have you thought of asking an actual Christian Conservative? Reporter: What? Candidate LB: I stopped believing in the Western Monotheist Tradition over four decades ago.  I have made no secret of my disbelief since that time.  Even when I enlisted in the United States Army during the administration of President Ronald Reagan.
In light of this answer the reporter would have to engage in actual thought in order to respond. Regardless of the outcome I fully expect to have fun.   
I have not had this level of emotional uplift since I uploaded the first issue of The Resister on the talk.politics.guns newsgroup and every bulletin board I could log on to.

This will be one Hell of a run.

Quote Of The Day

There’s a reason they refer to them as Union thugs. There isn’t much difference between being in a gang and being in a union. That’s the sad thing. You have to feel sorry for all those Hell’s Angels/Outlaws that feel like they’ve been compared to a union. -- Iron Fist at Blogmcracy. [LINK HERE]

Quote of the Day

Everything I need to know about unions, I learned during the 1983 copper miners’ strike in Arizona, when a 3-year-old girl was shot in the head while lying in bed with her teddy bear. All because her father was a strikebreaker.

-- John Skookum

I'm not a Christian, but I do believe that those who live by the sword, should as Christ says, die by the sword.

I believe that those who benefit from the exercise of coercive force should be put down by force.

A Movie

I just saw Atlas Shrugged, Part One.

It wasn't how I visualized it.

It's better.

A Blast From The Past

Something I wrote a few years ago:

What the Republican Party needs to get through their collective skulls right now is the fact that the age of politics as usual is over.

No more compromise. No more deals. No more bipartisanship.

There must be a radical clean up of the mess that the Left has created. The partisans of socialism must be systematically removed from our public institutions. And if we are to have a future as the core nation of our civilization we must make a special effort to clean out the Augean Stables that our educational establishment has become under the tutelage of the Left.

And we must with volume and clarity tell the spoiled brats who imagine themselves to be the heirs of Marx and Lenin to grow up or get out.

Of course, if those idiots would just die, it would be nice too.

Huh?

Alex Johnson of The Epoch Times reports:

Mikhail Gorbachev, the former leader of the USSR, said recently that Moammar Ghadafi could be run out of Libya due to the violent force used to combat the protests.

"Gadhafi reacted so ruthlessly that he might end up being forced out (of his country),” Gorbachev told CNN. “I don't want to make predictions or anything, but he's shooting at people; he is using the military and weapons against defenseless people."

Um, isn't that pretty much the definition of how the Soviet State operated?

You simply can not have Socialism, or "social justice", or any other political order that operates on looting without the exercise of deadly force against the productive population.

The only alternative to a social and political order based on the principle of consent is coercion by physical force. (The emission of fraudulent ideologies only serves to cloud the issue.)

As the present looting spree by the Tax Eaters continues we will eventually see mobs of overburdened taxpayers taking to the streets with their fists in the air and chanting: "HELL NO! WE DON'T OWE!"*

To the various gangs of Tax Eaters, who depend on tax revenue for their sustenance, this is nothing less than a death sentence. And their patrons in executive office on the state and federal level will respond to a tax strike with open and deadly force.

They simply have no other choice.


* Yes, I know what's going on in Wisconsin. I'm simply predicting that things will get a lot worse.

A Question For Today

I have a question for Republican office holders and members of the Tea Party:

If public employee unions, and teacher's unions in particular are corrupt, then how can we continue to allow them anywhere near our children?

I think the answer is obvious.

Quote of the Day

Mark Urbin posted this on his No Moss Here blog:


Much of the left’s hate speech bears greater similarity to a psychological disorder than to standard political discourse. The hatred is blinding, producing logical contradictions that would be impossible to sustain were it not for the central element faith plays in the left’s new religion. The basic tenet of their faith is this: Maybe they were wrong on facts and policies, but they are good and conservatives are evil. You almost want to give it to them. It’s all they have left.

-- Ann Coulter

Anyone who feels that they are automatically right is automatically wrong.

The persistent habit by the members of The Left of refusing to check their basic beliefs (what Ayn Rand used to call a Premise Check) as well as their immediate facts is leading them away from the path of reality (and thus Life) and onto the path of insanity and destruction. It should come as no surprise that horrendous megaperson body counts were run up by collectivist states in Twentieth Century. Each of those states were founded on a falsehood and led by a leader who was held to be infallible.

Anyone who feels that they are infallible is already in the failure mode.

Progressives In Action

In the early 1930s, the Communist Party of the United States censured a comrade whom they had assigned to infiltrate the National Guard, because he refused to distribute materials demanding the abolition of corporal punishment of the troops on the grounds that it had already been abolished, nearly a century earlier.

-- Al Nofi's CIC, Strategy Page


We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

A Comment On The News

I've pretty much invoked the "Cry Wolf" rule as far as the emissions of the Leftist Commentariat is concerned.

And I expect the Senior Senator from New York to call for more violence against more innocent people in three... two... one...

"Mister Schmumer... what's it like to not have a Human soul?"

Giving Real Meaning to Veterans Day

By Edwin A. Locke

There is no more precious possession than one's own life. But without political freedom, human life is empty. Man cannot exist in any meaningful sense as a serf. The New Hampshire motto says it perfectly: "Live Free or Die."

Because human life is so precious, war should never be undertaken unless our rights are threatened. It is often said that our soldiers must sacrifice themselves for our country. This is precisely what we must not ask them to do. A sacrifice entails the surrender of a greater value for a lesser one. But if a man loses his life on the premise, "I would rather die than live in slavery," it is a tragic loss—but it is not a sacrifice. Such a man is acting in his own interests, to protect his most precious values.
