Inalienable

Odds are when you were in Public School you were not taught the definition of this very important word.

So here we go:

Inalienable

Not subject to sale or transfer; inseparable.

That which is inalienable cannot be bought, sold, or transferred from one individual to another. The personal rights to life and liberty guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States are inalienable. Similarly, various types of property are inalienable, such as rivers, streams, and highways.

West’s Encyclopedia of American Law, edition 2. Copyright 2008 The Gale Group, Inc. All rights reserved.

inalienable

adjective incapable of being conveyed, incapable of being sold, incapable of being transferred, nontransferable, not able to be conveyed, quod abalienari non potest, secured by law, unable to be bought, unable to be disposed of, unforfeitable, untouchable
Associated concepts: inalienable lands, inalienable rights

I beg your pardon Justice Stevens, only as I’m polite, but the Second Amendment which is actually the Second Inalienable Right as listed in the Bill of Rights cannot be “Repealed”.  The only reason it appears as an Amendment to the Constitution is for recording purposes.  As you should know, Sir, there was a vociferous debate regarding the placement of them as Amendments rather than leaving them as a stand alone document for the very reason we are dealing with such idiocy today.  Many of the Founding Fathers knew that the remaining Monarchists (about 30% of the population), most of whom had surrendered to the inevitable and thrown in with the ‘Federalists’, would continue to try to position these Inalienable Rights as Amendable by Man.  The idea of one’s right being given to them by other men is the tenent of Monarchy as it is the foundation of Socialism/Communism.  Without one man being able to force another man to do what he wants there would be no governing paradigm resembling the above.  It is always about force, Mr. Stevens.  Our Freedom rests on being able to resist it.
This is exactly why Free Speech and an Armed Populace is integral to a Free Society.
The Bill of Rights was debated down to its simplest form so Every Man could understand it, rich and Poor alike.  Simple, Powerful and Direct.  The Bill of Rights is the Maxim for Human Freedom.
It has been proven over and over throughout history and continues to be illustrated around the World.
The absence of an armed population, given enough time, always ends in Tyranny.  We do not need to repeat the errors of the past which has demonstrably resulted in Oppression, Death and Destruction of Human life.
We should be past that here in the United States.
But, Mr. Stevens, thank you for your input.  It’s important for us to remember that people like you still exist… and always will.  It’s also important for all of us to recognize that such an oppressive mindset can rise to the highest levels of our government.  We need to be vigilant and more careful.

Democracy Kills.

Stop It! Stop It! Stop It!

Stop talking about “Democracy” as if it’s a good thing!

While this is a sin committed by seemingly everyone, it struck me after listening yet again to the President and the Secretary of State speak glowingly about Democracy being introduced to the Middle East (Which is melting down), and the resulting democratically elected leaders that we MUST deal with, it occurred to me that they were playing on the ignorance of the American people… yet again.

This is not splitting hairs… this matters and we all need to understand it.  Democracy is horrible.

Historically, when Democracy is present, populations (almost without fail) vote themselves into tyranny.  In other words they ask to be taken care of, and they get taken care of… just not the way they wanted.  Every Socialist Dictator claims to be, and most often has been, at some point “Democratically elected”…

Do you really want to help countries enjoy what we enjoy here is the United States?

Here are the ingredients, all of which are poisonous on their own;

A Judiciary, by itself is a collection of “priests” passing edicts upon the population by fiat.

A Congress, by itself is a tribal meeting of elites fighting for and protecting their personal interests.

An Executive, by himself is a dictator.

What is required to establish a Free Country is a mix of the above…

A recipe, or better yet, a Constitution specifically defining the checks and balances of each branch and limiting government to very specific responsibilities to protect the Individual and his property rights.  (Unenforced, is a “living, breathing” piece of paper and nothing more.)

Elections without ALL of the above, is Democracy.  Democracy, by itself is simply “legitimized” mob rule.  This is what is being promoted by the Progressive Left.

But combine the above with Free-Market Capitalism protected by Individual Property Rights and now you have a recipe for greatness.  You have what the United States should be…

However,

Democracy on its own… you have what is today the Middle East.  A region on Fire and Falling into Theocratic Oblivion.

The goal should never be “Democracy”.  And, contrary to what generations of poorly educated public school teachers think (and apparently the Obama Administration as well), we do not live in a Democracy.  The United states is the product of a finely tuned mixture of all the above.  We should know this, and understand it.  Democracy is only one part of a beautiful formula making our country unique from the rest of the world.  Now is the opportunity to contrast what we have, and why we have it, against a tapestry of violence and destruction.  If today’s examples are not good enough then let’s go back a little ways.  Lenin wrote profusely regarding “Democratic Socialism” and his wish for “Democracy” leading to the dictatorship by the Proletariat.  Mao added a class and proposed roughly the same thing.  The Socialists have always viewed direct “Democracy” as integral to their achieving their goals.  I could list a number of prominent Social Elitists who killed their own citizens in the name of Social Utopia, but for this post those two should suffice.

In case you didn’t know;

We proudly (most of us proudly…) live in a Democratic Republic… “if we can keep it.”

We work very hard at maintaining the integrity of our elections.  (Or at least we should.  The lack of prosecutions for election fraud is deplorable.  ref: Preserving My Right to Cheat.)  We also have checks and balances at every level of our local, state and Federal government with the hope we can keep it.

To make this simple, understand the words you use.  When you do, you’ll understand what others are saying to you.  And you’ll learn quickly that some things you think are “good” are actually “evil”.  (Like decaf coffee… who drinks this?  Do the same people drink non-alcoholic Beer?  What’s next, non-alcoholic Bourbon? Clearly there is evil in the world.)

You’re Stupid.

And, because You’re Stupid, the Smart People don’t owe you the Truth.

Why?

Because They Know You’re Stupid and You will not Understand the Brilliance of Their Ideas.

They also Know due to Your Stupidity you may not agree with what They want to do, and that would necessitate further explanation and possibly debate. Both of which could lead to not getting done what They want to do.

Finally, They consider Themselves ‘Elite’ which means Superior… to Stupid people like You. They might have been told this throughout their lives by family and friends, or they may just believe it because of a mental disorder. But none the less, They feel Themselves to be Smarter than You. This is what justifies, in Their minds, Their Lying to You because you’re too Stupid to understand anyway.

But Wouldn’t They be afraid We would figure it out?

No. Remember, You’re Stupid.

So Who are these People?

They are composed of Socialists and Fascists (a subgroup of Socialism).  They reside in the Totality of the Democrat Party, but there exist many Republicans and Independents who subscribe to the same Ideology.  There are even some very confused Libertarians out there as well.  Almost always they can be spotted by how they espouse a belief that they are superior to others… who are not around to hear them.  So listen carefully.

And, Why are they Lying exactly?

The Elitists will Lie to you because They believe there should be no debate about Their ideas. They also believe You must be saved from yourself… by Them. Neither of which seems to be warmly received by those They label Stupid (You).

When did this Start!?

It’s a behavior as old as time itself. The idea of Slavery under a ruling Class of Elites has been the basis for every Government on the Planet from Monarchy to Dictatorship.  It is alive and well in China, Russia, Mexico, Canada, Europe and the rest of the World.  It just so happens that the last couple of hundred years it’s found a home in the ideology of Socialism, and it’s variants, here in the U.S.  They arrived at this power by telling you, your parents, and your parent’s parents, that they will ‘fight for you’ and ‘champion equal rights for everyone’.  When in truth, the only thing they give you is that which doesn’t directly effect Them negatively and/or threaten Their Power.

A single Glaring Example; They have taken over the Public Education system in order to keep all of us as ‘Stupid’ as possible.  Without much energy you can see Their Elitist condescension through the fact that They refuse to send Their kids to the schools They run.  I have stated many times, if we want to clean up our public school system Force EVERYONE to use it… or restore the right for EVERYONE not to use it.

How do We Stop Them?

Very Good Question.

First, Make an Effort to really understand what’s going on around you.

Second, Stop listening to the Old Media which was taken over by Liberal Leftists 70 years ago.

Third, take the time to understand the ‘Why’ behind the U.S. Constitution.  This alone will lead you to an understanding of Individual Freedom, Liberty, Right to Property and Limited Government… all four of which are anathema to Elitists.  (Warning: While Socialists may say they are for these things, it is only for Them… not for You.  Why?  Because You’re Stupid, remember?  Of course they will never champion Limited Government as They need Government Force to make you do what They expect you to.)

Such a course of action will also lead you to understand Free Market Capitalism and the Invisible Hand… both of which the Elites despise as neither requires Their supposed brilliance.  And, both leave you in charge of making decisions for yourself… which cannot be tolerated, because… wait for it…  You’re Stupid.

In the End, Stupid is as Stupid does.

So Stop listening to, and worse, electing, those who Believe you are Stupid.

Because that’s Stupid.

Please Don’t be Stupid.


Primaries! Primaries! Primaries!

Frankly it’s the only tool we have to cast out the Demons of Socialist Thought from the Republican Party.

There can no longer be any denial… it’s not that some of the Republicans are “weak”, it’s that they agree with the Progressive Liberals.  They only pretend to oppose the Left and then only when it’s politically harmless.

You must also understand that Leftists like Harry Reid, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and John McCain Mean It when they call you Terrorists. They mean it because anything that stands against Socialism stands against the America they envision as “better” and “fair”. They long for an America where they are called upon to remain in control… of everything and everybody… forever.

Why? Because you are too stupid to make decisions for yourself. You are too stupid to handle the Freedom and Liberty the Founding Fathers intended you to have. You are too stupid to make the decisions Harry, Barry, Nancy and John think you should be making.
You are… Just… Too… Stupid.

A Truly “Historic Compromise” has been made today. Our Leaders have decided to fully commit to our free fall into the Fiscal Abyss… because “it’s the right thing to do”.

Brilliant!

I would say I’m disappointed… but that simply doesn’t describe what I’m experiencing.

I would say I’m angry… but that doesn’t really describe what I’m feeling.

I suppose I would have to say I’m motivated… because the level of passion I have for the removal of individuals like Lindsey Graham from office is palpable.

Don’t fool yourself, this is a Huge Victory for the Left. And I don’t blame the Democrats… at least they’re somewhat honest about the Communal Paradise they wish to impose.

I Blame McCain, King, McConnell and the tribe that follows them.  They are nothing more than Leftist Progressive Socialists who believe if they tell you they love the Country, Constitution and are genuine Republicans loud enough and long enough you will believe them.  So far, they’ve been right.  You have.

But unlike these people, I do not believe you are too stupid.  I think you just don’t pay attention because you either have other things you believe are more important, or you don’t think it matters anyway.  Well, we’re all about to pay for that inattentiveness.  It’s headed for us like a freight train… and you will have nobody to point a finger at but yourself.

Now is the time to Makeaneffort and run people against these imposters.  Nothing could be more important.

There is no better way to get a point across than to publicly force them to spend their money defending their Leftist activities while risking their elected office.  And that’s what Primaries are all about.

Repeat after me…

“Primaries, primaries, primaries!”


“…What’s Happening Right in Front of Us.”

What do you say about the self-proclaimed “Most Transparent Administration in History” when you find out they are spying on American Citizens who have done nothing other than go about their lives?

If you found a way to defend that…

Then what do you say when you find out that the few, pathetic, rules restricting the access and use of the private information collected by the NSA were removed in 2011 by that same “Most Transparent Administration in History”?

Well… they did.  Full Story: Here

I must confess that I am not surprised…

The story held nothing that I haven’t already accepted to be true.

So why am I posting this?

It was a comment.  A small comment.  A comment that must be addressed.

Does the US Constitution mean anything anylonger? Seems like so many of our elected officials have taken a pair of scissors and cut out sections they don’t like of it leaving it in a cut up pile on the floor. Change has been brought to us, I am not sure many like it however.

The short answer to your question as to whether the US Constitution means anything any longer, JonQCit is «No». Then we could have a lengthy discussion about how long it’s been this way ; my suggestion would be at least since very soon after WW II, when the US government begain initiating and/or participating in foreign wars without the Congress, as is its duty under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, declaring war (the last time the US Congress declared war was on 5 June 1942 on Bulgaria, Hungary, and Romania ; how many years has the US been at peace since that time ?)…

job, it’s the people fault, we have become so ideology driven we can’t see what’s happening right in front of us. (emphasis mine)
just read some comments, we have a government that is spying on us, they have reversed restrictions secretly and people still defend them, that’s why we have these problems.
It’s not JonQCit’s rhetorical question or mhenriday’s assertion.  It was the product of our government schools, maifgm, that made me feel sad.
I’m going to assume that maifgm meant “ideologically” when making his statement.
While I don’t disagree with the problems he identifies, it is not being driven by ideology which has brought us here unless he is speaking of Socialism.
In fact, it is the abandonment of Ideology and the rise of Compromise which have handed the Socialists their greatest victories.  It is exactly the Spirit of Compromise which handed them maifgm and probably the friend maifgm drinks with.  It is Bipartisanship, the Why Can’t We All Get Along mentality, that is happening right in front of us.
Depending on maifgm’s age I might not dump ton’s of derision upon his head… I suspect everything he thinks sounds nice with a little ecstasy and a techno music bed, but it is an illustration of profoundly confused thought.  It is the absence of critical thinking that must be corrected everywhere we look.  First with ourselves, then with our friends… particularly those we drink with.
Ideology is the answer.
Free-Market Capitalism is the only Ideology which protects us from Tyranny.
It’s time we embrace it.
If you don’t think so, I suspect you too are a product of our Government Schools and the intentional confusion they were paid to administer upon you.  But don’t feel bad because you’re not alone.
Because maifgm is right on one important point, “it is the people’s fault”.
However, it’s now up to you to correct it.

Alphabet Soupgate.

The IRS, DOJ, DOD, CIA, BATFE and next up is the EPA…

Could the Liberal Blitzkrieg have encountered a Republican Winter?

It looks like they might be stalled right outside of their Social Utopia.

I tapped out a little ditty a while back regarding the pulling out of all the stops by the Leftists in Government.  I accused the Republicans (most of which I hold in low regard) of doing nothing to stop what was evident to every sober American… as well as me.

What I failed to take into account was the ability for the Progressives to over-reach.  And, over-reach they have.

It looks to me like the Republicans have no choice but to confront what seems to be the Hydrant Blasting abuse of power and Supercilious Subterfuge being conducted by the minions of Socialism.  It appears that all that Community Organizing has been a bit too effective in motivating the Useful Idiots.

Given the scandals at:

The IRS – targeting groups with Constitution and Patriot in their names because they are considered “the opposition” to the Administration.

The DOJ – using the power of government to covertly investigate members of the press while intimidated their sources.

The DOD – and it’s ties to the lack of response, and subsequent cover-up, during the assassination of our Diplomat and his security team in Benghazi.

The CIA – and the moving of missiles into Syria for the Al Qaeda backed rebels, possibly leading to a new “cold” war with Russia.

The BATFE – and the up-arming of Mexican Drug Cartels which led to the deaths of our Border and Immigration agents… not to mention hundreds of innocent Mexican women and children.

And now the EPA…  and a fabricated employee.  – Manti Te’o has nothing on Ms. Lisa Jackson who created a Mr. Richard Windsor in order to avoid scrutiny of her actions and decisions while serving as Head of the Environmental Protection Agency.  While she didn’t seem to relate her most intimate secrets through Mr. Windsor, she certainly expressed how she believed government’s purpose was to punish business.

“The  EPA and Ms. Lisa Jackson, its chief, have committed extensive violations of law  that should receive in-depth scrutiny from Congress, law enforcement and the  American people.  Yes the Obama administration has yet another serious  scandal on their hands.”

The full article is found at The American Thinker: here.  It’s absolutely worth the read.

The “surprising” revelations show no sign of stopping anytime soon.  And the Republicans are being dragged to the party in a meaningful way by the American people.  (Those damned TEA party types simply won’t go away… who do they think they are teaching folks about the constitution!)

This fall may exceed my greatest expectations in terms of political theater.

The only part of this I find truly amazing is that the Administration is doing nothing to put out any of these inferno’s.  At some point, someone has to get thrown in front of the bus.  Typically it happens sooner than later, because the longer you wait the more of them you have to throw.  But that’s the part I so truly enjoy…

So, I’ll fire up the grill, while Congress is forced by America to fire up the Special Prosecutors.

Nothing says summertime fun like grilling politicians.  (A helpful hint: They taste better if you tenderize them first.)


Poor little Dictator.

Very late at night when my wife is asleep I dress up like Napoleon in lipstick and squeeze the last drop out of a fifth of scotch, through the tears I cry over all the wasted years making up my life…

Whoa!
Wait a minute. Wrong blog. Sorry… let me try again.

I just finished up a little ditty about the life and times of Cicero.

With that came a heavy dose of Caesar and Octavian (Later Augustus), but enough of the history lesson. What is important is pulling all the threads together. For anyone who knows me they know that much of my “formal” schooling was spending time with the likes of Lenin (Vlad not John), Stalin, Hitler and Mao with some additional minor players thrown in for seasoning. After finishing the lesson on Cicero and the Caesars, it dawned on me that all these guys had a single similar trait.
No, it’s not that they thought they were contestants on “How many of your own citizens can you kill?” (Although this would make for better TV than Fear Factor… I’m still holding out for Survivor Antarctica. If you freeze to death you’re off the iceberg.  That I would watch.) The shared trait was that “darn it, the system is broken and somebody has to do something about it.” added to “I’m just the mustachioed maniac to do it.” (OK, the Romans were more into funny hats, sheets and body oil.  But I digress.)  They saw themselves as saviors.
They viewed themselves as “thrust” into their positions. The people pressed them into service and in order to install that “New Order” they had to control things… just for while of course. They only killed their enemies out of political necessity… not actually to fertilize the fields of the Ukraine or improve german furnace technology. No, no, no. All of that was just an unfortunate byproduct of “saving” their respective countries.  Can you imagine if they actually saw themselves as evil and that was their intent?
Without fail every one of these dictators demanded a communal following of their citizenship. Shared sacrifice was a favorite go to phrase when government meddling turned supply and demand on its head. It was Patriotic to be desperate and in need. Noble even!
This story has repeated itself over and over because there has never been a shortage of people who think we need them whether we know it or not. They believe deep down that the fate of their nation is calling them to take the reins and administer a beating… I mean “set things right”.
This is how current leftists say with a straight face that they are “patriotic”. These folks genuinely think that moving this country into a variation of European Social Democracy is the best intention one could have.

Enforcement of the U.S. Constitution is the only “problem” stopping them from saving you from yourself and the Utopia you never asked for.  Constitutions are rules put in place to keep Statists in check and it really makes them mad. (Keep in mind that without enforced constitutions countries start baking people.)  Boy are those rules put on paper a nuisance to the poor little aspiring dictators.  So what are those smartest among us (just ask them) whose best of intentions require some dictatin’ supposed to do?  Traditionally the Statist tactic has been to get enough people to agree with them so they can ignore the constitution until it can be forcefully changed.  Simple really.  And, it has worked every time.

Ask yourself a question; Has that been happening here for decades? If you answer “yes… now that I look at it, it has!”

Then the next question is;  So, what should we do with these wannabe dictators with the best of intentions?

Aside from making sure these types never get into public office of any kind..
I think we should buy them a Napoleon outfit, a tube of rose petal red lipstick and a bottle of Glenfiddich…
