He has a Point about the Death Star.

 


An Open Letter to Frank Luntz

Or, why the Left Hates Logic.

Frank Luntz of Focus Group Fame, Displayed his Establishment Credentials several nights ago by once again informing all of us that The American People want Politicians ‘who can cross both aisles and unite the government to get things done.’

This is where supposedly intelligent people display their ignorance of, or complete disdain for, Logic.

All Giraffes are Animals… but not all Animals are Giraffes.

I would like to take this opportunity to address Mr. Luntz directly.

Dear Mr. Luntz,

No, Many of us out here are not interested ‘In Getting Things Done’ if it means continuing down the path of Socialism.

I will take the liberty and speak on behalf of many of us out here.  The Politicians we ‘want’ are those that STOP the seemingly ceaseless slide into Democratic Socialism.  The Politicians we ‘want’ are those that care less about their Party and more about the Constitution of the United States.  The Politicians we ‘want’ are those that are more concerned about protecting Us from Government than protecting Government from Us.

Sir, I recognize we are a minority in the World.  However, I would offer that this is what makes The United States of America Exceptional.

We were created as a bottom up Government.  We were built upon a Governing Theory placing the Individual as Paramount.  We are a  country where the Freedom and Liberty of every single Human Being is supposed to be Sacred above all else.

I wish to return to that Paradigm of Enlightened Brilliance.

We have wondered far afield from the Founders intent.  We have been overrun by those Elitist Administrators who know they are right about everything without the trouble of demonstration or reflection. We have dishonored the Founders and Every Man who gave all to protect their Vision.

For all intent and purpose the Socialists have won.

That being said, Mr. Luntz, I do not wish for more of what got us here.  I do not wish for the perpetual growth of Crony Socialist and Fascist Government.  I do not long for Bipartisanshitt, Compromise and Handshaking between those I send to Government and those whose drive is to turn us into every other Social Democracy designed to Control their Populations from the Top Down.  I do not wish for a single Politician who fails to see Socialism for the Deadly Poison it is.

Mr. Luntz, I respectfully ask you to cease including me in the ‘group’ of those who want politicians ‘to get things done’.  I ask this because I strongly suspect what I wish ‘to be done’ is very, very different from you wish to be done.

Regards,

Mike


You Should be Free to be a Crappy Bigot.

And I Should be Free to Point it Out.

Like a never-ending election season treadmill, out come the issues that divide us but never get solved…

Discrimination is a Big One.

Look Folks, In a Free World we must all have a right to Discriminate. And with that comes our Protected Right to Point Out those Crappy A-Holes so devoid of accomplishment that they must find Personal Characteristics none of us are Responsible for and Discriminate against us on that basis… so they can feel better about themselves.

Frankly, I want to know who these people are.

I Do Not want them hiding in the Shadows.  Do You?

I want to be able to craft my decision-making with full knowledge of Who these people are, and expose where these people work. This way I can avoid them… while suggesting to my friends that they might consider doing the same.

I would also promote News organizations doing their jobs again, and applying scrutiny to these people, and their businesses as well.

This would allow LOTS of folks to make informed decisions.

Instead, this problem suffers from ridiculous attempts to Legislate Behavior and results in an erosion of our individual rights as a whole, drip by drip.

Once you accept the premise that only ‘some’ freedoms are ‘allowable’, you’ve lost the Inalienable Right to All of Your Freedoms. And by default, control over you is gradually handed over to those in Power.

Once you have conceded your ‘rights’ come from Man and thus can be taken away by Man, then the race begins to become the Man in charge of handing them out and more importantly… taking them away.

This is our Reality, and it is how we are all Manipulated to do the bidding of, and send money to, People Who have No Business Running Things, let alone telling us what to do.  We promote our own march to Slavery, whether we realize it or not.  I’m guessing most of us fall into the ‘not’ category.

So…

Let’s A-Holes be A-Holes.

But Shine the Cleansing Light of the Sun upon Them…

And do yourself a favor, Stop looking to Government to solve this problem, because it can’t… and truth be told, the Fine Folks up there Don’t Really Want To Solve It anyway.

There is Power in Division.


4 out of 5 Socialists Recommend Controlling Speech

In a Recent unscientific Survey 4 out of 5 Socialists said they believe Offensive Speech should be Controlled.

Rather than stand on Principle and cast Sunshine on supposedly ‘deadly’ speech expressed in newspapers, television and the internet thus allowing All if Us to condemn it…  Our Government prefers to sidestep that argument and ask for Increased Control of all methods of expression.

Why?

Because controlling Speech is an important weapon employed by those in power to remain in power.

Think about it this way; If you’re doing things people hate you for, what better way to avoid their anger than to make sure they never know about it… and if they do find out, you can tell them whatever you want while making sure nobody can challenge your hogwash.  If anyone tries to shed light on your crappy behavior anyway… send some Force their way.

Brilliant!

Of course you need to convince enough people these controls ‘are for their own good’ or, in pure Irony, ‘to safeguard Free Speech’.  Those that support you, for whatever unimaginable reason, will nod in agreement.  They might even grab a Starbucks, Stop Bathing, Misspell a Sign and Sit in a Park.  Get enough Useful Types like these and you’ve inoculated yourself against all those who recognize the danger you represent.  Machiavelli would be Proud.

We are seeing this play out right in front of us.

New Controls are being created for the Internet.  Last time I checked the Internet has done pretty well without them…

It Keeps getting Faster…  It Keeps getting Better… all by Private Means.

But it represents all that Socialists believe is Evil.

Free Speech.

And that cannot be tolerated.

If you can’t make fun of someone’s Faith, what Can you make fun of?

And since Socialism/Populism/Liberalism often serves as Religion for Atheists… it’s not even a jump, leap or reach.

By the way, the Fifth Socialist who didn’t Approve of Controlling Speech is having his Mind made Right by the other 4 as I type this out.

You’ll just need to keep drinking the Kool-Aid for another six weeks until the Election.

Remember, the Liberal Progressive Socialist Democrats are depending on you.


The Devil’s Promise

Creepy Backroom Babies 2014

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.

Because we know you won’t give up your car…

…dammit.

“The odds of dying in a terrorist attack are a lot lower than they are of dying in a car accident, unfortunately.” – President Barack Obama to Jay Leno.

Please read that again.

But you’ll give up your Freedoms out of fear of Terrorism.  You have made it clear that you are willing to accept the dangers of personal motor vehicle travel in order to remain Free.

If you listen, they’ll tell you what they really think.  Who on earth says “unfortunately”!?  Well, folks like Obama.

Kind of a Dog Whistle that you can actually hear… and has genuine meaning.  Okay, more like a regular old whistle.  Like a train.  Loud.

“But don’t worry… we’re working on the cars too.  We’ve been doing it quietly for years.”

Speaking of trains,

Fear not!  We always have Amtrak!

Let’s hope they don’t ruin that…

Although I think they’re way late to the party.

On the upside, it’s FAR safer because most of the time it’s not moving.

My experiences with Amtrak are similar to sitting in your car… while it’s in the garage… running.


Waiting for Them to Die…

It appears our Embassies in the Middle East will remain “closed” as we wait for the Terrorist’s who have explosives implanted in their bodies to become extremely Ill… or better yet, Die.

This is where we are at.

This is the level of depravity our enemy nurtures.

It is also a small glimpse of the white-hot hatred our enemies feel towards us.

They Hate our Individual Freedom.

They Hate our Individual Liberty.

They Envy the Accompanying Prosperity.

All of which they consider Sin.  Which is why we must defend all three.

It is Why we cannot tolerate Domestic Spying by our Government… but, as we all do, understand we need it Abroad.

It is Why we must Defend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights… and stop giving Socialism, and all its relatives, sustenance.

It is Why we are Unique in the World… and why the World knows it.

We are not the Chosen People… We are the Chosen Design.

Do our politicians listen to what they say… or has it all become a quaint rite of passage?  A Formality?  A Joke?

…I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same

What do we take seriously?  Does Moral Relativism allow us to pick and choose that which we agree with, and that which we don’t, while pledging to defend it all in totality?

If so, could the people having explosives sewn into their bodies be considered Heroes?  How about Freedom Fighters… because “Freedom” means something different to everyone?

Is Definition, Meaning and Contrast lost forever?

We know where we are at… but we can’t remember how we got here.

The path Forward promises, and has delivered, more of the same.

It appears too few of us know the way back… even though the map is well-preserved, behind bullet-proof, UV protected glass in the National Archive.

Is that document really that important?

I don’t get the feeling it is to us…

but it certainly is to those who recognize it must be destroyed.

Sadly, one must at least acknowledge a level of respect greater than ours, even though it fosters Hatred.


Doing Less is Doing More… versus 1984.

A Government Doing Less is A Government Doing More not to infringe on your personal Liberty and Freedom of Choice.

It is also serves not to undermine your self-reliance, and thus your self-esteem.

Ever wonder why there has been such a concerted push to make our children “feel good about themselves” simply because they show up to school?

Our public schools focus on this because, it’s an integral characteristic for them to possess in order to ultimately accept that their self-worth is not connected to their independence and self-reliance. It is an important mindset for them to have if they are going to cheerfully welcome the State, or “someone else”, providing everything they should need while simultaneously directing their every action…

It is conditioning.

And, it is destructive in every way.

Now the DHS is demanding information regarding citizens biological information.

They want it all… which should make the front page of every paper and the lead for every news cast. Why would DHS need this information to do their job? (Even more important… what exactly is their job? Don’t give me platitudes… be specific, Because I’m not sure.)

I have stated it often, and I will once again… Your Freedom is Directly Correlated to You Ability to Live Your Life Anonymously.

How is that going?

Why are we constantly expected to give up biological information about ourselves to our Local Law Enforcement? DHS? IRS? Elementary Schools? Etc?…. How on earth is this information vital to their providing you their service?

It is a slow conditioning process allowing all of us to become more comfortable with no longer being Anonymous.

We seem to cheerfully accept such demands… as we have been taught to do.

The common retort you will hear when bringing up this topic is “What’s the big deal?”. “They need it to take care of us!”  or “What are you afraid of?”… Instead of “Why do they need it?”.

Our goal should be to keep government out of our lives.

That means we need to start taking personal responsibility to solve problems or issues as we identify them.

In other words, stop expecting someone else to deal with it… if it’s broken, fix it yourself.  If you are “being taken care of”, you are not free.  If you are “being kept safe”, you are being Kept.

But in the end…

It is my opinion that “fairness” is what always gets in the way of our preserving our Freedoms.   (This is why that platitude is forbidden in my home.)

“It’s not Fair that I am always the one solving the problem… that I’m the one with the shovel.” Well… tough sh*t. There will always be those who will do nothing… and their lives will suck as long as we don’t allow our elected officials to reward them for their sucking.

If it takes me out there solving my problems, or protecting myself, with a spoon instead of a shovel that’s what I would prefer in order to remain free.

That’s what I will do to live my life Anonymously…


Run Away! Run Away!

Apparently it’s no longer a laugh line from Monty Python’s Holy Grail.

According to our Attorney General, Eric Holder, it’s “your duty” to retreat when threatened.

Your Duty… to Run Away.

du·ty
 [ dootee ]
  1. obligation: something that somebody is obliged to do for moral, legal, or religious reasons
threat
 [ thret ]
  1. declaration of intent to cause harm: the expression of an intention to cause harm or pain
  2. sign of something bad: an indication that something unpleasant or dangerous is going to happen
  3. somebody or something likely to cause harm: a person, animal, or thing likely to cause harm or pain

Please take a moment and think about this.

Our Attorney General, who is the legal mouthpiece for the President of the United States, has stated in no uncertain terms that you must retreat when threatened by anyone wishing to do you harm.  And make no mistake… taking your stuff, threatening your well-being, or both, is “doing you harm”.

According to Mr. Holder, you are obligated to give that person, or persons, whatever they want if they demand it.  Could be your Wedding Ring, could be your child, could be your body.

You have no right to protect yourself, or your property, if another individual is willing to harm you.

Sounds to me like it’s “Open Season” on all of us who are not inclined to break the law.  Sounds like a Thug empowerment seminar.  Sounds like pandering for the criminal vote.

The only legitimacy this idea enjoys is born out of the concept that we should leave such matters to the police (the government).  It is a flawed idea.

I respect the police.  It is a difficult and dangerous job.

However, the police are the SECOND line of defense against crime.  They exist to catch criminals AFTER they have committed the crime… as it should be.

YOU are the FIRST line of defense… as it should be.

Why is this?

Because you do not… do not… do not… want to live in a country where there is a police officer on every corner.  These places exist, and judging by the numbers, you don’t even choose to vacation there.

So, this leaves YOU.  And surprisingly unknown to our current leaders, our country was designed that way.  The responsibility to defend ourselves is integral to our freedom and liberty.  In fact, our ability to defend ourselves, and our property, is considered an inalienable right.  Does that phrase sound familiar?  It should.

As you age, and pay attention, it becomes disconcerting when you realize the level of ignorance some of us find acceptable in our leaders.

Or is it ignorance?

Could it be they know exactly what they are saying?

If so, does that make you feel better?
