An Open Letter To Rob Bishop (R-UT)

Posted in: Uncategorized | Comments Off

Mr Bishop,

I am writing concerning the recent sabre rattling against Russia over the Ukraine. I think you know better than I that Ukraine is both very far away and not of strategic importance to the United States. I think you also know better than I, that the recent turmoil occurring there is not some grassroots uprising but yet another “stirring of the pot” by both western and eastern external influences.

The details are not really all that important because this theme seems to constantly repeat itself. Small podunk country does it’s own thing (in this case they voted NOT to join the nightmarish European Union) **Correction, there was never a vote, it was a decision by the president to sever an agreement** the US gets upset, sends in their spies, stirs up trouble, arms some rebels, deposes (or attempts to depose) current leadership, pisses off other world powers, threatens war. This is nonsense. We cannot afford another war. The American people cannot even stomach another war, and we didn’t even pay all that much attention to the previous two. Our munitions are depleted, our military is shrinking, our economy teeters at the edge of oblivion and yet the sabres still come out ?!?

You like to be known as a “Representative” so here is the message I’m sending to you from back here in your “home district”. Stay out of Ukraine. Leave the people of that land to hack out their own future. Getting involved there risks starting World War III. Do you think the dollar will withstand a Word War III? Of course not. It will crash even without it at some point, but a war with Russia will make it crash that much sooner.

Here’s an idea, how about you take the stand in front of your sordid group of well dressed, tax feeding, thugs and give a speech about America’s historical roots in neutrality. Why not give a speech on the dangers of war with Russia and China? Why not give a speech telling Obama to sit down and shut up because he is out of his league when dealing with Putin.

Not what the house leadership wants you to do? Yeah…that’s what I thought.

A 5 Step Plan To Significantly Reduce Gun Violence in the US by Robert Wenzel

Posted in: National Politics, State Politics | Comments Off

1. Abolish the DEA and end the war on drugs. A large part of gun violence comes as a result of the drug market being forced underground. Drug dealers have to shoot to stay alive, just like Al Capone had to during Prohibition.

End the drug war and drugs would be sold at drugstores by little old lady cashiers – -and at a fraction of the price – thus reducing all kinds of drug related crime.

2. Abolish the FDA and government involvement in drugs. Big pharma, which owns the FDA and the White House, is behind the mind altering drugs that have been taken by many of the crazed shooters. Drugs paid for and promoted by the government. Let’s end the government promotion of these drugs, which can turn young men mad.

3. End minimum wage laws. Urban youth, in particular, with few skills, are the victims of the minimum wage laws. Their marginal revenue productivity is not high enough to warrant businesses hiring them. Thus, they roam, looking for targets to rob.

4. Abolish the Department of Education. Government education is a myth. It’s an open air prison. The only thing learned at public schools is how to become a thug.

5. End gun control. Guns are the great equalizer. Robberies will really go down when criminals know that the potential victims could be carrying.

Bonus idea: End gun registration and destroy all records of who owns guns.

Gun registration is only one step away from gun confiscation. The most important reason to own a gun is so that individuals can protect themselves should a government get oppressively totalitarian. The last thing that an individuals should want is the government having a list of who owns guns.

Posted in: Uncategorized | Comments Off

With government like this, who needs foreign enemies?

#7 – Department of Justice (DoJ) – annual budget $28 billion: This includes the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) which has its own annual budget of $8 billion. The “Department of Justice” is perhaps the most Orwellian oxymoron of all government agencies. For decades they have pursued a failed War on Drugs that targets small-time users while ignoring the true drug criminals. In fact, they’ve even armed the drug gangs as revealed in the Fast and Furious scandal. We have a Justice Department more concerned with going after whistleblowers of crimes than the criminals themselves. The FBI deserves a whole section unto itself given their recent behavior. The only “terrorists” they’ve caught since 9-11 are the ones they have created with their own material support. Further, the FBI is increasingly using illegal surveillance tactics for peaceful activists like Occupy demonstrators and others. It has recently been revealed that the FBI was actually spying on Occupy protesters at the behest of banks, not the government, even refusing to tell Occupy leaders that there were assassination plots against them. Finally, it must be noted that no bankers have gone to jail from the immense fraud that led to the financial collapse of 2008 and beyond; no one significant has gone to jail for torture and other war crimes; and government corruption has been all but legalized.

#6 – Spy Agencies: The nation’s 17 spy agencies, including the CIA and the National Security Agency (NSA) – annual budget $55 billion? Many of the intelligence accounts are classified, so we can’t really know the true total, but we do know that the budget for spy agencies has doubled since 9/11. The NSA has grabbed the most attention as of late with plans to expand into their new $2 billion data mining center in Bluffdale, Utah set to launch in September of this year. Whistleblowers like William Binney have stated that the agency is already spying on its own citizens domestically. As the war on terror increases its scope through drone surveillance on American soil, the NSA’s budget will only increase, while increasing the danger posed to large sections of the U.S. Constitution. The CIA of course has long been implicated in using assassination rings to topple foreign governments and political opponents, while being at the center of the Guantanamo Bay and rendition torture apparatus. With the arrival of no-holds-barred legislation like NDAA 2013, the intelligence regime becomes more dangerous than ever.

#5 – Department of Education (ED) – annual budget $70 billion: The way that America has chosen to educate its youth is the beginning of the justifications for the abuses of every other federal agency. The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, as Charlotte Iserbyt has called it, has resulted in a once independent, entrepreneurial nation becoming a collectivized horde of selfish, but not individualistic, youth. There is much less attention paid to vocational skills, and much more attention paid to training the next bunch of public officials or bureaucracy enforcers. Furthermore, the public school system is clearly engaging in prisoner training with the actions of children becoming criminalized at an ever-greater pace. With the recent CT school shooting, we can expect that this will now become part of the curriculum as justification for the surrounding police state will be taught as a logical consequence in the face of such random threats of terror.

Gun control for those who need it

Posted in: Uncategorized | Comments Off

When considering disarming the populace, why not start by disarming those who kill the most?

While I am in favor of illegalizing guns and thus ending crime, I think the principle should be democratically applied. Let us begin by disarming the Pentagon. If this seems unreasonable, ask yourself: who kills more children in a month, Ritalin-addled little boys in America, or the US Air Force in every Moslem country it has heard of? All I ask is an honest body count. I will accept your numbers.

Right To Work

Posted in: Economics | Comments Off

When I heard that Michigan of all places was about to pass “Right to Work” legislation I was ecstatic. “There is hope!” I thought. Unions have made a mess of that state and turned Detroit into both a ghost town and the murder capital of the country. I’d never given much thought to right to work legislation, just sort of figured it was good because it helped to beat down the unions (which are bad).

Walter Block on LewRockwell.com set me straight:

Right to work laws would forbid all such agreements. One justification for such legislation is that these union contracts are invalid, since they are made under duress. Organized labor compels businesses to sign them by threatening all sorts of violence against them, some legal, others illegal. But suppose, hypothetically, that an agreement of this sort were strictly voluntary. Posit that an extreme left wing, “progressive,” firm such as Ben and Jerry’s ice cream or Michael Moore Enterprises wanted, desired, was more than willing to, engage in such a commercial interaction with a union. Right to work laws, in forbidding such an arrangement, would then be a violation of the rights of two consenting parties to engage in a capitalist act. Thus, on that ground alone such legislative enactments are incompatible with libertarianism.

I have to admit the man has a point, a very good point. If we’re going to have a free society, we should work to apply the Non Aggression Principle to everything even some of things we personally can’t stand…like unions.

The Death Of Liberty

Posted in: National Politics | Comments Off

Well people this is it, you are watching the last days of American liberty unfold. Our petty rulers are now working overtime, hammering the ignorant masses with all the right words and images through their own Ministry of Truth (MSM), dusting off ready made bans on various guns (or maybe all of them this time), and preparing to subject the people to what is bound to become a total police state.

I’ve heard talk of ex-post facto gun bans that will require people to surrender weapons that were previously purchased legally, I’ve even heard talk of outright confiscations. I’ve heard talk of the need to extend mental health resources to still more people, despite overwhelming evidence that SSRI type anti-depressants are very likely significant factors in many of the recent mass shootings. I wonder who is going to pay for all of this new mental health coverage and enforcement? Right…it’s going to be you.

What is in store for us?

Gun confiscations, drone surveillance, people disappearing into that giant NDAA human memory hole? Will states like Idaho succeed from the Union? Are we in for civil war? More wars abroad? Foreign troops on American soil? With no more threat of armed reprisal will Obama start targeting 16 year old American kids here that don’t agree with him? Will they start bombing schools in various extremist filled red states to protect the homeland?

There is no way around this collapse now. The Republican Party has cast out it’s only members that had some semblance of what is needed to be done to save the country. The House leadership has even stripped committee posts from Libertarian leading members. A mighty figurative middle finger was presented to Ron Paul and all of his supporters at the the Republican National Convention, then they said “don’t let the door hit you and the butt on the way out!”.

We effectively have a one party system where we elect sociopaths to run our lives. Perhaps that’s not totally correct, maybe we don’t elect them anymore. Maybe machines elect them now. All takes is for the programmer to write something like:

bool ObamaWin = true;
USConstitution constitution = null;

Why even bother with that? They make up all of the economic statistics, why not just make up voter numbers?

If you have not read 1984 By George Orwell, you may want to read that now because that is where we are headed.

Remember Taxmageddon? It’ll make Sandy look like a tropical storm

Posted in: National Politics | Comments Off

A horrifying combination of expiring pro-growth tax policies from 2001 and 2003, the end of the once-temporary payroll tax cut, and just a few of Obamacare’s 18 new tax hikes, Taxmageddon will be the largest tax increase EVER to hit Americans. It’s nearly $500 billion in one year, starting January 1. That’s two months away.

What that means per person:

  • Families with an average income of $70,662: tax increase of $4,138
  • Baby boomers with an average income of $95,099: tax increase of $4,223
  • Low-income workers with an average income of $24,757: tax increase of $1,207
  • Millennials with an average income of $23,917: tax increase of $1,099
  • Retirees with an average income of $42,553: tax increase of $857
