Force is a terrible idea…
…Unless it’s my idea.
And so goes what passes for debate built on principles of sand.
There is a trick played on us. It’s a simple trick, a trick for the Simple that is. And the fact we fall for it is more an indictment of ourselves than those Knaves who play it.
The Trick is to foment a fight were there was none.
The Goal is get Us to concede something we don’t realize we’re arguing about…
It works like this;
If you believe that Force is a wonderful thing and People are too Stupid to know what’s best for themselves… then you also believe that Vaccinations must be compulsory. In other words, Vaccines save lives and the Masses are too idiotic to choose to get them. (Explaining the benefits of Vaccines is just not enough and besides it takes too long, and too much effort, to argue the benefits with a bunch of Morons. You get it… because you’re Smart. Having to compete in the arena of ideas is just prodding the Sheep into the right decision assuming they accidentally understand your brilliance.)
At the same time, when you know that your ideological opponents profess to believe that Force is a terrible idea and all things should be Voluntary, you create an argument over… say… said Vaccines. (The topic is interchangeable.)
The Goal is to get your ideological enemy to agree that Force (The foundation of your Progressive ideology) is a Good idea. Even if they qualify it with the caveat of “Only sometimes”, you have won the Greater Argument your opponent doesn’t even recognize he’s having.
All that remains is who gets to decide what cases qualify as ‘Sometimes’. And, of course, The Real Power lies in being The Decider.
Once a Liberal has this Foolish Victory they quickly move on to Compulsory Health Care… Compulsory Diet Plans for Public Schools… Compulsory Education… Compulsory EPA regulations… Compulsory Redistribution… Etc… Etc. Demanding you go on the record as to exactly WHEN it’s OK to Force.
Now the conversation has moved away from Force as an idea and on to exactly What will be Forced.
From a Progressive point of view, its Brilliant. It keeps your Ideological Enemies on the Perpetual Defensive and leaves them no option but to be the one’s to say “No”. (Ever hear the phrase “The Party of ‘No’.?)
Supposed Conservatives fall into this Socialist Trap all the time. And because they spend little time Thinking about what they think and Why, they deserve it.
The Socialists set their opposition up to get them to concede their principles shift with the wind making them worthless if not non-existent.
Liberal Progressives believe in Force. They believe you’re Stupid. They believe the only thing they can count on is given a decision to make you’ll make the wrong one.
That is the divide.
Force versus Freedom.
All arguments reduce to this.
Unfortunately, Conservatives seem content to have Lucy hold the football.
Another example is the “Gay Marriage” debate.
This ‘argument’ has both sides FIGHTING for Government approval.
Do you see the faulty premise here?
Why is the question not “What is Government doing being involved in one’s marriage in the first place?”
Why on Earth would any person, Gay, Straight or Slightly Bent, beg the approval of the Government as a validation of their ‘deeply personal’ marriage.
Why would the debate not center around all partnerships being contractual civil unions between two individuals and leave marriage to the Church of your choice?
It’s not about validating a union between two people.
It’s only about validating the Concept of Government Interference and Involvement.
It’s about Force…
Telling us who we can, or cannot, marry and charging us a fee for the privilege.
I always thought Charlie Brown should have run as hard as he could and Kicked Lucy in the Head instead.
Seems harsh, but it would be the last time she pulled the ball away.
Until that happens… Republicans have no ground to be surprised when they are accused of being a distinction without a difference in comparison to Democrats.
And that’s just how the Elitist Democrat Socialist Knaves want it.

So there I was, Minding my own Scotch… and I get a message from X. In the most perfunctory way possible he made clear it was time for me to dig myself out from the secure comfort I’ve been enjoying and return to the fray.
Who am I to disagree?
I have to say right up front, it has been an exciting few months. From the ANTIFA-Facists to the complete fabrication of accusations used to slime a man who is far better than I, the Theater of the Absurd never ends.
The timeliness of X’s prompt is exquisite. It just so happened that I was struck by something so profoundly stupid that I was seriously considering putting my drink down. So let’s go there first…
A Gentleman by the name of Ruchir Sharma said the following on what used to be a go to network for business news;
“We may or may not believe in [American exceptionalism], but the financial markets have never believed in it to such an extent,” added Sharma, head of emerging markets and chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley Investment Management.”
Please read that again real quick.
I would ask Mr. Sharma what American Exceptionalism has to do with a booming economy? If he is speaking to Property Rights and the influx of foreign investment which is recognizing the United States as a Safe Haven for their wealth, then okay… maybe… but I’m not sure he is. I believe he is conflating the financial success of the current economic reforms, which are returning the United States to its position as the World Leading Economic Engine, with Freedom and Liberty of the Individual. I would then remind Mr. Sharma that it is the latter which constitutes “American Exceptionalism”.
Why is this such a big deal?
It’s a big friggin’ deal because the Socialist Democrats have been diligently dumbing down our population for decades in the hopes ‘educated’ individuals like Mr. Sharma will intentionally or unintentionally continue to do their work for them. Sadly, they have been very, very, successful.
However, in his defense let’s assume Mr. Sharma knows what American Exceptionalism is. Now let’s take the beginning of his assertion… “We may or may not believe in [American Exceptionalism]…”. I then have to ask who it is that does not believe in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual? You speak as if you know or this opening qualification would not be necessary.
Yes, yes… I know these people are out there Hammering away at the Malleable Proletariat but I like to have them on the record so we all know who they are which is why I ask. (One of the reasons I’ve been hiding out around the Barnes and Noble in Tyson’s Corner, aside from all the TOTALLY COMMON and super awesome Gang Rape Parties that EVERYONE has ALL THE TIME around the short hop to Bethesda, is watching how Trump’s mere existence is bringing these Socialist Democrat A-holes out into the open.)
So Who is it, Mr. Sharma, that does not believe in American Exceptionalism? Who is it exactly that does not believe in the Freedom and Liberty of the Individual and the power inalienable rights has unleashed upon the World propelling the United States to the most powerful country on Earth in just a short few hundred years? Who are these people who believe a person’s rights are bestowed upon them by Government made up of fallible, elitist, narcissistic beings and not God… or the Universe… or simply because they Exist?
It’s okay, Mr. Sharma, I know you can’t do this for several of reasons. 1.) You may be one of those people. 2.) You like your paid gig and wish to keep it by specifically not offending those fallible, narcissistic elitists who employ you. 3.) Both 1 and 2.
So allow me to say what I’m hoping you meant to say.
The Current Economic Boom occurring in The United States is substantially due to the removal of barriers upon the Engine of Capitalism which were erected by Socialist Scum as they believe it’s not ‘Fair’ that Free (er) Markets are so damned successful and restraining them is the only hope for their foolish Command and Control Economic Idiocy to catch up.
Giving you the benefit of the doubt, I’m sure that’s what you wanted to say…
Now we wait for Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg to retire and the ensuing melt down.
The Left is the proverbial ‘drowning man’… it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

About half way through my life I realized I had spent most of it trying to figure out who to believe. In fact, I still spend an inordinate amount of time on this. I have never required someone to agree with me to find them believable, trustworthy and interesting. Actually, I find relief in surrounding myself with people who challenge my thinking. If they are willing to do that, then they are willing to tell me the truth.
But I have come to some red flags, so to speak, which have saved me from a number of those who I call Elitists. These are the people who most often don’t tell you the truth because they don’t know what it is. However, they know whats best for you. And you can’t trust them because they will do whatever they think they have to for your own good. “The best of intentions” crowd. They should all have tattoo’s on their foreheads reading “You need us.”
I don’t subscribe to the idea that there are a ton of truly sinister people out there purposefully lying directly to your face… why risk that when they can get the intellectually lazy Elitists to do it for them? The genuine Leftists search out those people fitting certain criteria and then fill their heads with crap which they promptly go and spew on you with righteous entitlement. We all know these people… they are the ones who are full of opinions they can’t defend and most importantly don’t think they should have to. When asked, they resort to a myriad of rhetorical devices to make you feel ignorant, mean-spirited or both.
After decades of in-depth clinical research I have found these individuals can be grouped roughly as follows:
The genius by virtue of Geography. When I grew up/lived in/traveled to (fill in the blank) it makes me smarter than you. – We all know this guy. (By the way, I type in gender neutral.) Simply due to the fact that he was born, lived or traveled through a specific place he is the most informed person on every issue regardless of topic. The coastal areas of the U.S. supply us with a large number of these types.
The genius by virtue of Profession. – You can’t possibly teach me anything. Many of us know these guys as well… often they are professional in their field. Stock Brokers, Doctors, Lawyers, Scientists, Cowboys whatever. Since they have genuinely mastered a very specific area of complexity, they are geniuses in all things. Often these types will view you as ridiculously uninformed while they themselves establish barricades to challenging information. They interpret your respect of their accomplishments in their area of expertise as validation of their genius in all things. I must disclose that a great many of my best friends are professionals but they do not suffer from this elitist mentality else they would not be my friends. So don’t take offense you guys… you know who you are.
The genius by virtue of Caring. – There is nothing for me to learn that my heart doesn’t tell me and you are mean… and just dumb you dummy dumb-dumb… These are the people we typically see at demonstrations of various types holding the peace signs… with flowers… and rainbows. We can usually find nine or ten of these people occupying a park we don’t use or walking down a road with a sign which makes no sense. You know them. They are out there saving people from themselves or saving those who have not asked to be saved. They chant slogans in the hopes of being acknowledged. Simply put, they care more about everything than you do so they do not need to educate themselves on issues, particularly the ones they are currently championing. The only knowledge they need is the deep pain they feel in their hearts over everything humans do. This “feeling” is how they know that they are doing something meaningful… and you are stupid and mean. And, because you work, bathe and cut your hair it’s clear you don’t care.
The genius by virtue of Inheritance. – I have money therefore I am. I actually find these types entertaining and will engage them every once in a while. These are the guys that inherited a ton of money and have no idea how it was made. Sure, they were around when their parents created the wealth (unless of course their parents fit into this definition as well) but were not involved in the business even though they FEEL like they were. As an aside, if their parents fit into this category it is astonishing to me these guys have anything left over as it usually gets spent before the kids see any of it. Anyway, these are the fun drunks. They buy all the drinks and agree with any idea ever put in front of them… like “it would be a good idea to open up a sequin mine… or become professional cat waxers”. All they have had to do is be semi-tolerable and act like they’re brilliant… the money is already there whenever they want it, they just need “friends”.
The genius by virtue of being Alive. – I’m fabulous and you’re stupid for not agreeing with me. These folks are everywhere! They are prolific! There is no required age, or income, or for that matter intelligence. They recognize their own brilliance because they are ALIVE! They have the latest cell phone, but they can’t tell you how it’s made. They saw the latest movies but cannot tell you who is running for President and why. They have the latest laptop but have no idea what makes it run… hell, they don’t need too! They’re cool just because! They can give you a 20 minute dissertation on Kim Kardashian’s rear end and its societal significance but can’t tell you how a policeman gets paid. They have never read a book but update their Facebook page five times a day. They consider the ability to download music a “skill”. They think texting while driving should be outlawed… for other people. (Same with guns, and “mean” dogs, and food that makes you fat, etc.)
So… Why do we need to identify these folks?
Because they VOTE, which directly effects us… and we run the risk of them having influence over others who vote as well. It’s our job as individuals to recognize and clean up the intellectual mess they leave behind.
It also goes a long way in QUICKLY determining who you can trust.

If you’ve been with me for longer than 10 minutes, then you already realize I’m what you would call an Anti-Socialist.
While I have vast and varied views, first and foremost I stand in opposition to all forms of Socialist thought. You can call it whatever you want; Socialism, Liberalism, Leftist, Progressive, Fascist, Communist, Democrat, No Labels, Crony Capitalist, RINO, John McCain… or whatever new names they come up with to keep you confused.
Why do I oppose Socialism? Why do I oppose a political theory that promotes Elitists exercising force over all those they deem inferior? Why do I oppose an Ideology that has resulted in the greatest destruction to the common good, and ultimately the loss of life, in the history of the world?
I am a Free-Market Capitalist.
But what apparently sets me apart is I know what that means, which is more than I can said for the majority of our elected officials… and certainly more than our electorate.
(If you would like to join me in actually KNOWING what a Free-Market Capitalist is instead of allowing Leftists to tell you what they want you to think it is… here’s a good start: Wealth of Nations, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, The Road to Serfdom, Freedom to Choose, The Romantic Manifesto, The Constitution of Liberty, The Age of Reason, The Law, Conflict of Visions… and the list can go on. Come join us… it is rare air to breathe indeed.)
I will share with you, the people being demonized by the press are the people you must listen to carefully. (Actually listen to them… not whatever sound bite John Stewart or Bill Mahr decide to let you hear, followed by a studio audience of the above mentioned know nothings yucking it up and a laugh track from the fifties.)
The folks you will be told are Mean, Evil, Stupid and In the Way of your Happiness are the very individuals who, most likely, have the best interest of our amazing country at heart. And, they are the few deserving an honest, unedited, un-editorialized hearing of why they stand in opposition of more Socialism.
But let me get you started:
Socialism gets you Detroit.
Socialism gets you Mexico.
Socialism gets you Domestic Spying.
Socialism gets you incredibly horrible public schools.
Socialism gets you Unions who make promises to their members they know they can’t honor.
Socialism put’s your medical records out there for all to see.
Socialism gets you expensive, crappy health care.
Socialism gets you high taxes.
Socialism gets you high unemployment.
Socialism gets you Crony business deals.
Socialism gets a quadrupling of the money supply devaluing everything you’ve worked so hard to save.
Socialism spends your money with no consideration of reason or result, because it believes it owns the money… not you.
Socialism gets you National Debt so large you cannot possibly conceive it. You literally can’t count that high… before you die of old age.
Socialism gets you racial hatred because without it, it dies.
Socialism gets you a bigger and bigger gap between the rich and poor, because it relies on that too.
Socialism puts self-anointed Elitist A-holes in power and keeps them there… forever.
Socialism is Force.
So the very least MY representatives can do IS NOT GET ALONG WITH SOCIALISTS. AT ALL… EVER.
The very least MY representatives can do is say NO in the face of bigger government and more spending… or should I SAY WASTING MY MONEY.
The VERY LEAST my representatives can do IS STAND IN OPPOSITION to everything… every single thing… the Socialists want to do.
And, if they DO NOTHING ELSE… I will consider them to be doing a great job.
If they really want to impress me, then start taking apart 100 years of Socialist schemes which have not only stood in the way of this country being greater than it is, but has set it back on every level. Doubt me? Do you think the founding fathers would have asked the public to tolerate Domestic Spying after fighting a War in order to establish a new type of Government designed to protect the Individual, Their Freedom, Liberty and Property? (There were plenty of “Terrorists” back then too.)
So I expect that 20% of the Republican Party who are about to be positioned as the worst people in the world… will do the right thing.
I expect them to be the Party of No!
NO! NO! NO!
It is the least they can do. When I say “the least”, I mean the LEAST.

My Apologies to Lord Vader..
How is it that those who practise genuine Free-Market Capitalism, in its purest form, can’t understand why Socialists Hate them?
Which brings us to a Flurry of Uber Arrests in Hong Kong.
I happen to have an answer…
Those practising Free-Market Capitalism, in its purest form, are a bunch of Democrat Socialist Tools.
This is the only explanation for the surprise experienced when Chinese Authorities Arrested Uber Drivers and those coordinating the Company’s efforts in Hong Kong.
For me this is a glaringly hilarious illustration of the ignorance of those who ‘Identify’ as Way Smart, Totally Cool, Progressives simply doing what any One World Collectivist Hipster would do, Download an app and make money Driving people around…. then be amazed that Big Labor Unions, Democrat Politicians and the Communist Chinese Government doesn’t go for it.
The fact they fail to understand what has happened is rich irony indeed.
If you’re reading this and I’ve made you angry, please think super hard as to why.
But don’t bother telling me about it.
I don’t care.
Because no matter what you say… it will remain funny.

Why the IRS matters.
The BIG question is, does the IRS scandal matter?
I say yes, it does.
For almost 100 years the Left in this country has spent untold treasure, and untold man hours, crafting arguments that pit one group against another.
The creation and nurturing of these groups is called Balkanization.
It is the political tactic of getting individuals to identify with a small group sharing similar interests, then pitting them against other small groups who seem to oppose said interests. The outcome of this manipulation, they hope, is to gain one or the other small groups support in the form of money, and votes, come election time. We have all seen this. While it is certainly found on both sides of the aisle, it is the sole motivator used by the Socialists. It is the proverbial “Us vs. Them”, whomever that may be. The reason this is the foundation of Socialist politics can be found when individuals educate themselves as to what Socialism is… then recoil in disgust. Because of this common reaction to Progressive ideology, they are left with identity politics.
The upside for the Statist Left is it distracts us from the paramount task of protecting our Natural Right to Indivdual Feedom and Liberty as outlined in our Founding Documents… what is otherwise a unifying cause.
There is fantastic writing on this phenomena out there, so will I not bore you.
But, what makes the IRS scandal important is the unifying effect it has on the population. No matter who you are, if you are productive in any way, you are afraid of the IRS. They have enjoyed that power, fostered it since their inception. The rub for Liberals lies in the Unity part…
When your entire political success relies on small groups that you keep mad at those you consider your enemy, things start to fall apart when everybody unites. And, everybody is uniting in outrage over the IRS scandal. This makes for a very interesting tap dance the Left must perform in order to retain their base (by feigning outrage along with them) while also trying to defend and preserve the fear the IRS reputation evokes. They must have a complicated, unintelligible, unnavigable tax code allowing unlimited power over the population and it’s productivity. Socialism requires “special people” with the authority to redistribute wealth.
If you doubt me, you will have plenty of opportunity to see for yourself over the next week or so. During the hearings look for your local Leftist and count the number of “but’s” in their statements and questions. In other words, they will start by saying how unbelievable… horrible… terrible… it is for the IRS to target certain groups “BUT”… and then they will go on to defend its legality, or justify it in some way. They simply cannot lose the power of the IRS. Liberals on both sides of the aisle know and love the power they find in the U.S. tax code.
For the Socialists, government exists to take your money and give it to someone else… and you’re supposed to love it. Or at the very least fear it. Caligula had a famous quote; “Let them Hate me, so long as they Fear me.”
So yes, this scandal matters. And I think it matters in a very big way.
In a Global way… in a Macro sense…
In fact, the timing could not be better… well, it could have been better. It could have happened 50 years ago. Anyway, it was not long ago that those who supported ideas like the Gold Standard were dismissed (after Nixon) to crazy-ville by the Liberal Left. But time has allowed for many additional alternatives regarding taxation, from flat to consumption.
Many more individuals have become interested in the function of money. These two facts only make it harder for those who have anointed themselves the smartest people in the room to do as they wish in regard to our economy. Education has that effect.
So it brings us to today…
The Left has no choice but to try to shut down this IRS scandal.
They cannot afford all of us getting together and opposing something so important to the foundation of their Ideology. The power of taxation cannot be modified in any way that reduces their ability to redistribute wealth.
They cannot afford alternative ideas designed to fund government functions which do not require one human forcing their subjective decisions upon other humans. The individual cannot become more independent through the reduction of bureaucratic oversight and punishment.
They cannot afford to have this discussion continue much longer… particularly now that many of us know Liberals exist on both sides of the aisle and no longer fall for the old trick of party identity, but instead have endeavored to gain some ideological understanding.
While it’s a bit late, I’m happy it’s happening.
Cheers to the IRS and the Elitists who run it! All the better to see you with…

When Socialists get together behind Closed Doors…
Let’s get something Clear. The Statements made by Jonathan Gruber, a Primary Architect of Obama Care and a M.I.T. Professor, were far from Stupid.
And that is the point.
Gruber’s comments were not Stupid… they were Honest.
While it’s not news to me, it might be to you…
Socialists and their Ilk see you as Stupid.
You are to be fooled, lied to and manipulated. The only thing Socialists believe you can be counted on to do is the Wrong Thing.
Gruber, et al*, know what’s right for you… always… in every situation. Just ask them. (You’ll have to pretend to be one of them and do it where they think they’re safe.) They’ll tell you.
What’s an important lesson to take away from Gruber’s comments, regarding your Stupidity, is the Leftist media circling the wagons to reposition his speaking as “Stupid”. But listen carefully… no one on the Left is saying his comments are Not True. What is being said is it was “Stupid” for him to say them. And what they mean is it was ‘Stupid’ for him to SAY THEM OUT LOUD WHERE YOU CAN HEAR THEM.
The Democrats are angry because you heard one of their own speak freely.
You heard a Highly Regarded Progressive Liberal being Honest about how they ALL feel about You.
Nothing is surprising by these comments.
Many of us have personally heard such statements throughout our lives. But the Democrats, and some Republicans, have been very careful not to say such things where they can be heard by those they speak of. Kind of like spelling out words in front of your Children…
Personally I like having Socialists be honest and open. Just like I prefer my Racists to be honest and open.
They are Poisonous, Ugly and deeply Evil people. And I want to know exactly who they are.
So now you know about Obama Care and how it has been based on Lies throughout it’s being Forced upon the American People.
But it’s not just about Obama Care.
It’s about how Socialists see the World… and most importantly, You.
When you subscribe to the idea that the ‘Ends justify the Means’ as Socialists do… lying to the ‘unwashed masses’, the ‘idiots’, the ‘little people’, is just part of the Job.
They are even beginning to look for moral relativity by saying “Everybody does it.”
But hearing it for yourself… puts some things into context, like an Elected Representative publically stating “You have to pass the Law to Find Out What’s in It” as Nancy Pelosi condescendingly did. She knew what was in it, she knew it was the Crown Jewel of the Socialists Transformation of the United States… it’s just You are too stupid to understand it. And, on the outside chance you did understand it, you wouldn’t like it. So Stop asking Questions, Shut Up and Pass It!
Well, they might ‘all lie’… but that doesn’t mean We should tolerate it. Ever. From any of them… ‘our side’ or not.
This goes especially for you ‘Liberals’ out there. Don’t think for one moment that associating yourself with Democrats get’s you a pass… it’s a Fatal Conceit.
They think you’re Stupid too.
Only worse… they think you’re Useful.

The most insidious form of Hatred is the kind that thrives just below the surface. It festers just under the skin, while those it infects look us straight in the eye and direct the accusatory finger of indictment at all but themselves. It clearly permeates the entire elitist class that panders for your vote every two years. It is sadly alive and well…
… in The Party of Slavery… the party of Bull Conner… the Party behind the hoses, the beatings and the once accepted old south morality of overt discrimination condemning fellow human beings to the back of the bus or often Far, Far, worse. The party of Tyrannical Oppression. In the Democrat Party, where it has been hiding like a lesser Demon for over a hundred years.
It strikes me in the most horrible way that we are witnessing modern Democrats exhibiting their deep seeded Racism by Criticizing a man whose accomplishments are nothing less than amazing. Barack Obama worked tirelessly for decades in the Illinois State Senate. A truly amazing man who earned a Nobel Peace Prize. The very man who has made Health Care Affordable for All! A single, principled man who persevered the trials of arguably the most Racist Country on planet Earth now has to face those whom he trusted showing their true colors as the rancid bigots from a time best left far behind us.
I’m not just talking about Democrats such as Mark Begich in Alaska or Alison Grimes in Kentucky…
I’m not speaking about Senate Majority Leader, Democrat, Harry Reid being fascinated that a Black man can be “Clean” and “Articulate”…
Or even the betrayal of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and CIA Director Leon Panetta severely criticizing the President just weeks after they have left his inner circle of trust…
I’m talking about all of those Democrats who now see a Great Man as nothing more than an object whose intrinsic value is determined only by how he might forward their selfish aims. A Man whose Achievements, I remind you, those very politicians supported with full voice for Years. Years!
However, Now that this man is no longer needed, he is cast out like a tool they used to only further their sick, greedy self-interests. The Democrats in question cannot even bear to profess they once voted for this Great Man. When his usefulness is through, they abandon him. But hasn’t that been hundreds of years of history? He is being treated as something… something… slightly less than Human.
One does not need a Dog Whistle… as this betrayal can have only one Evil Root… only one Sad Motivation.
One does not need signs above the water fountain.
One does not need Code Words…
…to see the soft Hatred Harbored in these Liberal Hearts.
It is without question because…
Barack Obama is Black.
And these Democrats are saying it loudly and clearly.
Or rather… refusing to say it at all.

Freedom and Liberty without Consequence and Responsibility. – The Devils Promise
A Promise of Infinite Freedom and Liberty to do as he says… live as he wishes… exist if he desires.
Last night a friend of mine asked “Why can’t we just go to work, come home and not worry about anything?”
I was disappointed and sad. I simply assume the people I surround myself with understand the value of their Liberty and the necessity to defend it at all times. This is my fault… and illustrates the lesson that these facts must be repeated over and over.
However, this is a common question. It’s a question labeled ‘reasonable’ by those who want to keep you asleep until it comes time to secure their power or help them keep it. It is a question built upon a premise that Evil does not exist and Evil People are not being born this very second. And, those who peddle niceties are in fact nice. It is a question which is more of a plea to trust, a cry of despair, that life is too hard to shoulder the constant burden of skepticism and responsibility for ones actions. It’s the soft mindset that incrementally leads to slavery.
What do I hear when someone asks this?
I hear their desire to give up… surrender… lose… their Freedom by abdicating their responsibility of protecting it to those who pine for control over others.
I hear apathy, ignorance and ambivalence regarding the Freedom and Liberty they currently enjoy…
I hear a person who has no ability to empathize with those who are oppressed and do not enjoy their same Freedoms.
It is the absence of contrast… wisdom built upon experience… which disables otherwise able minds.
If you’ve been around here for a while you already know that one of my top 12 reads is ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ by Frankl. At the end of the book he suggests there should be a Statue of Responsibility on the West Coast mirroring the Statue of Liberty in New York.
I happen to agree with Mr. Frankl’s brilliance and insight based on experience. (For any of you who want to understand more about anything… ever… you need to read this book.)
Being Free is a Huge Responsibility. It takes energy, effort and thought. It requires the ability to be honest with one’s self and willingness to suffer the consequences of one’s action without projecting blame upon others. It necessitates seeing the world as it is, not as you might wish it to be.
To be a Citizen of the United States, the only Nation on Earth to be founded upon the principle that the Individual was Paramount and his possessions, including his person, were to be protected above all other things, places the responsibility of remaining Free on each and every one of us, every moment of every day.
Nowhere on this planet, at any time in recorded history, has the Ultimate Minority of the Individual Human Being been placed First… before Government… before the Majority…. before a Specific Religion. We are it.
That is American Exceptionalism.
Because of the above fact, We’re the only ones who can protect it… not Government, or a King, or a ‘super smart person’, or a Nobel Peace Prize Winner, nor any other form of Leadership Committee big or small. It’s us… just us… in a purely voluntarily cooperative effort. No one anywhere in the World will come to our rescue should we fall. Because no one anywhere else in the World agrees with us. They have decided that the only viable forms of Government fall somewhere in the spectrum of Socialism; whether it’s Social Democracy, Theocracy, Communism, Oligarchy, Plutocracy, Fascism, Dictatorship… anything BUT a Constitutionally Limited Democratic Republic which puts the Individual first justified by Natural Law.
The Progressive World finds such an Enlightened Idea far too limiting. The World prefers Force and Class Stasis… the World prefers Control. Therein lies the Irony. The Progressive World desire to take all of us back to divine right and the age of Monarchies. They only wish they could figure out a way for the majority to vote them into permanent power. They already know they are Smarter than you, they just want you to solidify it once and for all. (Elections are such a nuisance… all that energy… all that money… could be used to force our brilliance upon the Masses. Such is the Ego of the Devil.)
The Devil’s Promise is really; Do as I say and you will be Free… You have a right to your existence because I allowed it.
We in the United States are being conditioned in our Schools and through our Media to accept this… even support and promote this…
The ‘Why’ and ‘How’ are clear and simple to see for those who are capable of intellectual honesty. We have done this to ourselves. The history has been written for all who care.
It is also plain to see We have wandered far from the intent of our Founders…
We no longer own the fruit of our labor.
We no longer own our property.
We no longer own ourselves.
All we have left, which we know is genuinely ours, is what’s in our mind… and never shared.
Those who wish Control would take that from you as well… if they could.
Is it time to give up and pay the Devil his due?
‘Why can’t we just go to work, come home and not think about all this stuff?’
It would certainly be easier…
than being Free.

My last post on The Zombies has prompted a thought.
I have a strong belief in Conspiracy… just not in the volume shared by many of my fellow Tin Foil aficionados. The primary reason for this is it takes huge numbers of people (AKA Humans) to pull off the kinds of conspiracies which would hold most of our interest. And, Humans can’t keep their mouths shut. So I do not believe most of the popular conspiracies hold water, so to speak.
Do Conspiracies exist? Absolutely.
One of my favorites is as old as time itself.
The greatest trick the Devil ever played was convincing you he doesn’t exist.
This occurs in everyday life for all to see… with the help of the Mainstream Media.
The Liberal Progressive Left in this country has convinced you they are not Socialists/Marxists… because they say so.
This is brazen lie. Period.
Once you take the time to learn what a Socialist is you see clearly what the Left is. But the goal of the Liberals is to keep you from making the effort to do so.
Diner Customer: Are you peeing in my coffee!?!
Waiter: Absolutely not! How Dare You Accuse me of such a thing!
Diner Customer: But you’re doing it right here at the table, in front of me, right now!
Waiter: No I’m Not! I would Never urinate in your coffee Sir!
Diner Customer: I’m WATCHING YOU DO IT!
Waiter: Well Who are you going to believe? ME or your damned lying eyes?
Diner Customer: Oh.. well good point. Sorry about that.
Waiter: No problem. Enjoy your breakfast. Let me know if you’d like some more coffee.
Diner Customer: Thank You! I appreciate it! See you tomorrow.
And so goes the relationship between the Left and the Useful Idiots that support them. The rest of us try very hard not to go to that Diner… (Except the owners keep buying up and closing down all the other ones.)
So yes, conspiracies exist. But they exist only because we allow them to. Far too many of us refuse to acknowledge what’s being done to us right out in the open. (#Leanforward)
But an even bigger problem exists. A problem that permeates society. A problem the Elitist Left doesn’t want to admit exists because it undermines the lofty, enlightened, view they hold of themselves.
It’s The Law of Unintended Consequences.
Most often we see this Law illustrated following a Stupiracy.
A Stupiracy is a loosely associated hoard of Stupidiots practicing profound Stupidiocy in a concert only non-participants can see.
The Zombies, worst case scenario, would be a perfect example. Computer makers building back doors into Computers ‘just in case’ is a perfect example (thanks IB). Obama Care in its entirety is THE perfect example. The list could go on. But in the end it requires disparate individuals exercising Stupidiocy sans Conspiracy that in the end generates the greatest number of stupified Faces. While there might have been a small, but loud, contingency of us screaming to stop… look… and listen… they dismiss us by projecting their ignorance in our direction.
Then, when things get weird, terrible even, they act as if they are shocked and surprised. The Stupidiots then attempt to cast the blame on us. Why do they do this? They do this to make sure no one listens to us next time we identify a Stupiracy and scream about it.
(noun) A confluence of errors, oversights, poor judgments, and/or lacks of foresight by unrelated parties that is so maddeningly frustrating you’d swear there was a larger plan or higher power at work that was designed against you.
1. adj.; So stupid that the word stupid is too much of an understatement to be used to describe something.
2. noun; An idea, plan, action, etc. that is stupid enough that stupidiocy is the easiest way to describe it.
1. The stupidiocy of some of the people who won a Darwin Award defies belief.
2. The idea that it’s okay to stick spoons or knives into a toaster because the only warning label pictures and mentions a fork is pure stupidiocy.
(adj.) 1. Used to describe Individuals resembling John F. Kerry
2. Used to describe Those who consider themselves smarter than everyone else in the room.
In the End…
The Smartest People in the Room are most often the Stupidest, and they dream of the day we recognize their brilliance then concede all control to them, forever.
We are in the process of making Dreams come True.
