Ron Paul shits on Michael Moore, Republicans & Democrats

All in one sitting, on the Larry King show, Ron Paul gives some of the clearest and most logical solutions to our health care and war quagmires:



Again, he speaks the truth when we blames both Democrats and Republicans for all of these disasters. The corrupt politicians are protecting their buddies in the Insurance companies, Drug companies, Military Contractors, Arms Dealers and other merchants of death and destruction. Michael Moore wants to keep this violent cartel in place and then "hopes" that the right folks will magically appear (get elected) to run it better. Ron Paul is the realist who knows you have to smash this racket, shut them down, send them home and let "We the People" (aka The Free Market) take care of everything through non-violence, cooperation, free exchange and commerce.

Tourtured Foxx



Recently I was teaching a British-born friend of mine about Sanford & Son and it's enduring legacy. While he had never heard of the show he interestingly clued me into the possible origins of the sitcom with the British show Steptoe and Son. The Wikipedia entry for Sanford & Son confirmed this fact and it led me down memory lane and eventually to this YouTube video of Redd Foxx' final interview. From the article it seems like Redd's spirit and his will to live were already crushed by the IRS's heavy hand years before his heart-attack killed him.

These sad stories reinforce my belief that the economy and society in general would be better off if we abolish the IRS, the income tax and any sort of taxes on productivity and profits. Just imagine if everything you earned you kept, free and clear, there would be thousands of companies moving their factories or headquarters to the USA to take advantage of this sort of freedom. We wouldn't have to destroy an entire generation with this reckless deficit spending, nor the spirits of creative geniuses such as Redd Foxx in the process.

It sucks to be an Obama supporter (again)



Once again Rachel Maddow is on-point. She's got to be one of the most honest progressive in the media today. I'm glad anti-war Democrats are not giving up their cause of ending these illegal imperial wars. Recently the South Florida Veterans for Peace created "Arlington South Beach" during the Memorial Day weekend and with over 4000 deaths in Iraq being represented by a tombstone it was quite a site to see.

Again, don't believe the Obama hype, the guy worships Abe Lincoln, the first Republican tyrant, and he's definitely following in his footsteps.

Obama Crime Family hates your liberty!



This is the same bullshit from the last tyrannical administration. Thankfully, I keep reading of liberals who are already going sour on the Obama Crime Family. The dumb-fuck Republicans are finally screaming on the feds for their blatant socialism (where were their protests during the last 8 years?)

Obama officially shot down the idea of legalizing / decriminalizing Marijuana during hist town-hall meeting. Plus the feds raided a pot dispensary in violation of their earlier promise to back off and let the states handle this issue.

Don't let your "liberal" friends remain glass-eyed and mindlessly devoted to this current crop of criminals, spread the word on Barack Bush's continuing violations of our personal liberties!

Good News from Obama!

Holy shit! I gotta post the good news for a change because ragging on Obama for being a Bush-cloned-suck-wad gets tiring.

The administration of the holy emperor is going show mercy on medical marijuana dispensaries who abide by their state laws.

But wait! Obama's thugs are saying that they will leave folks alone who follow their state laws in reference to a particular matter that the US Constitution does not explicitly address? Huh?

I think I heard of this concept before....

It's called the 10th Amendment of the Constitution and it says:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.


Should we be praising these rat-bastards for (semi-)following the constitution? It reminds me of a Chris Rock joke where he mentions folks who brag "I take care of my kids!" Chris Rock then replies "You're 'sposed to take care of your kids, what do you want a cookie?"

I guess we can give Obama a cookie... a medicinal weed cookie as a token of our appreciation for leaving peaceful plant-consumers alone! Still, lets enjoy this great news and hope for more to follow.

One of the most disgusting articles I've ever read!

Not because of the way it was written, the author nor the opinions expressed in it. (The author is actually one of my favorite bloggers!) But this article by William Grigg offers some chilling facts about the horrible and tyrannical judicial system that lords over us in the United States. I'm sick to my stomach after reading this article.

SICK!

This is some bullshit!

After reading that article the hairs on your arm must be standing on end. If not, then check your pulse and your conscience. Then, if you want to further ruin your lunch (and or day) listen to this MP3 of Judge Andrew Napolitano explaining how our civil liberties are further eroded by our wonderful Federal Government.

Abe Lincoln the Tyrant


In response to Robert who wrote a comment on my last post, I had to reprint my response:

I appreciate your comment Robert. You gotta take a second look into the war between the states to really get my point. Never do I endorse nor support slavery in any way. But simple and plain... Abe Lincoln did not wage the war to free the slaves nor did Able care for their well-being or equal rights (he wanted to deport them back to Africa!) The war was about taxes (money). There is ample evidence that supports this. If you believe that the "Civil War" was about slavery than you must also believe that the Iraq war was about WMDs.

My point is that a so-called Catholic high school is putting a war-monger up on a pedestal as a model for proper conduct. It makes no sense because Jesus Christ was obviously anti-war (and anti-state for that matter).

During the 1860's there were many abolitionists (those who were working towards abolishing slavery) who were also anti-war, especially Lincoln's war of aggression. Read up on Lysander Spooner as a great example.

The brutality and viciousness of that war, then using the slaves as a scapegoat towards the end is what lead to the creation of the Klu Klux Klan by disgruntled and defeated Democrats. (For every action you get an equal and opposite reaction.)

Why do you think Dr. King's non-violent civil rights movement was so successful? The 1960's did more for equal rights than Lincoln's so called emancipation ever could. Lincoln used war, terror, homicide and humiliation to achieve his goals. Dr. King used love, peace, brotherhood, community-bonds and civilized discourse to help free those who were oppressed. (Peaceful action eventually reaps a peaceful reaction, like Obama being elected, makes sense?) The motivations and the results from both campaigns are like night and day.

We will eventually stop worshiping President Lincoln when we all realize the truth about this Republican, homicidal tyrant who disregarded the constitution and human life as well.

Random signs of our times


This image of Lincoln's rules of conduct with Jesus Christ in the background was taken from inside a Catholic High School in Canada! An institution that supposedly promotes the message of the prince of peace... he who disarmed all Christians and promoted non-violence and non-retaliation to his very death at the hands of the state. Here Jesus is juxtaposed with America's favorite war-mongering and murderous tyrant! Lincoln basically used the state to retaliate against and murder thousands of tax rebels in the south. It's great to see that he is used here as a role model for proper "Christian" conduct.



At Sears you can now purchase Officially Licensed products of the U.S. Army! No longer are they just the brave men and women who defend our empire... liberty, but now they are a brand for all to consume and glorify! They gotta raise the money to fund the endless wars somehow.



Finally, this is the kind of economy where you cannot drink Goldschlager without feeling guilty about shitting out gold flakes... all while gold and silver are selling at top-dollar premiums because of the shortages! During the good times, the financial booms, the bubbles, yeah its fucking great to drink pure gold and crap it down the toilet for your enjoyment! But now its time to start filtering that stuff as if you were a 49er sifting for nuggets in the mud. There's gold in dem hills!

Ron Paul shits on Obama and McCain

Today Ron Paul is calling on all Americans to reject the two-party cartel that has turned our presidential elections into a pissing match between two evils. No matter how you look at it you're still voting for evil. In a nutshell this is Ron Paul's reasoning behind rejecting Obama and Mcain... I agree wholeheartedly with him:

We cannot expect withdrawal of troops from Iraq or the Middle East with either of the two major candidates. Expect continued involvement in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Georgia. Neither hints of a non-interventionist foreign policy. Do not expect to hear the rejection of the policy of supporting the American world empire. There will be no emphasis in protecting privacy and civil liberties and the constant surveillance of the American people. Do not expect any serious attempt to curtail the rapidly expanding national debt. And certainly, there will be no hint of addressing the Federal Reserve System and its cozy relationship with big banks and international corporations and the politicians.

There is only one way that these issues can get the attention they deserve: the silent majority must become the vocal majority.


Even before Ron Paul announced that he was going to make this joint press conference with the major 3rd party candidates I already was leaning towards supporting the Green Party candidate Cynthia McKinney. Check out some of the other candidates as well if you care about truly abolishing the evil American empire that provokes more war and homicide worldwide.

1913: Worst. Year. Ever.


1913: Worst. Year. Ever. We continue to have endless wars, boom and bust economic cycles, inflation, tyranny, fascism, etc. It all really get ugly in 1913, and this design
points out why. 1) The federal reserve was created 2) The 16th amendment reinstated the federal income tax 3) the 17th amendment killed states rights with the direct election of senators and 4) President Woodrow Wilson was inaugurated. Wilson of course was the jackass who signed the federal reserve act into existence and he can directly be blamed for causing WWI and WWII (look it up!)

If you can't stand the Bush Crime Family then learn your history. 1913 was a turning point for the neocons that paved the way for America's violent empire.

Oh yeah, plus 13 is an unlucky number.

Just say NO to "State Worshiping"

The question is, why do Christians keep the American flag and the Pledge of Allegiance in their churches, masses and Sunday schools? If I ever decide to send my children to a government school you can bet that I'll ask them to refrain from pledging any allegiance to anything but God (until they're old enough to make their own educated choice, of course). This great article in the Christians Science Monitor sums it up:
Our "patriotism" is really nationalism: unquestioning and enthusiastic support of political power. Christians eager to render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's have the rest of the week to do so. But the things rendered should not include our allegiance. That belongs to God. Why taint our worship by pledging it to the state's flag instead?

I agree wholeheartedly with this article and I guarantee that Jesus Christ would NOT have been pledging allegiance nor recognizing the "trivial" power that governments wield. Jesus said his kingdom was not of this world, that means the Bush Crime Family and it's followers have no ounce of credibility in trying to portray themselves as being "Christians". (Read more on Jesus' rejection of state power and violence here).

McBama


McBama actually looks like Hugo Chavez. This creepy bastard has promised more war and more violations of civil liberties.

McBama said:
I will do everything in my power to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. (hint, hint)

McBama also famously sang:
Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran


McBama also voted to allow the Bush Crime Family to continue to spy on us.

McBama also wrote an article where he essentially drools all over another illegal-war conducting, constitution-shredding republican fuck-tard: Abe Lincoln.

These and many more promises of war and homicide and keeping the American empire intact is why we must oppose this jerk. McBama will guarantee more wars, no liberty. God bless America! (Get McBama T-shirts and bumper stickers here)

Thomas Flav!



Thomas Flav!! It's Thomas Jefferson meets Flavor Flav from Public Enemy. Way before there was a Ron Paul Revolution, Thomas Jefferson staged the Revolution of 1800 when the Jeffersonian Democrats took over all the levels of government to fight the corrupt power in D.C.. The Hamiltonian Federalists were already violating our civil liberties and the ink on the Constitution wasn't even dry yet! Maybe that's why Hamilton got shot.

True enemies of Liberty

You can trace the Bush Crime Family's bullshit all the way back to Alexander Hamilton (what is he doing on the $10 bill anyways?) who influenced Abe Lincoln's murdering antics and so on. But if you want the real story of how the power elite have manipulated us into these useless wars check out this long article by Murray Rothbard. The story is complex, detailed and eye-opening. Its summarized with this quote:
The House of Morgan, the Rockefellers, and the Kuhn-Loebs must take their place alongside the First, Second, and Third Internationals as the historic enemies of liberty.

Giant multinational corporations, and their economic satellites, in alliance with governments and the big banks, are in the process of extending their influence on a global scale: they dream of a world central bank, global planning, and an international welfare state, with American troops policing the world to guarantee their profit margins.


The whole article is worth a read if you truly want to dive deep into the truth of how we've inherited this hot steaming turd bucket called the U.S. government (and who's really to blame!)

Ron Paul vs. Hamilton



Alexander Hamilton, one of the first to start poking holes into our Constitution and the nemesis of Thomas Jefferson, set the foundation for tyranny in our country. The Hamiltonians have slowly taken power and it has culminated with the Bush Crime Family, the Federal Reserve, the Military Industrial Complex, the Patriot ACT, etc. etc. Ron Paul is our modern day Thomas Jefferson who is ready to "duel" with the Hamiltonians of the Republican and Democratic Party for the sake of our Liberties!



I posted this Ron Paul Shirt on Cafe Press for your enjoyment. Like they say, for ever 100 people striking at the branches there is only One striking at the root of the problem. Read your history and you'll see that the root of the problem with the Bush Crime Family can be traced back to Hamilton. Why do you think that asshole is on our 10 Dollar Bill?

Thankfully YouTube serves as the source for distributing new evidence of the Police State we're living in.

Russ Feingold on restoring our Civil Liberties

Its kinda sad to say but out of the nearly 20 people running for president in 2008, none of them come as close to being on-point as Russ Feingold (with the exception of Ron Paul in his own way).

In the last days of the Republican controlled congress at the end of 2006, those rat bastard facist fuck-tards rammed through the Military Commissions Act which essentially expanded the powers of these tyrants in D.C. by shitting on Habeas Corpus. Senator Feingold is fighting to restore our Constitution and our Civil Liberties, this is what he said on this matter:

Mr. Chairman, this bill is part of our counterterrorism efforts, because we cannot begin to make a dent in terrorist recruitment and plotting worldwide without sending a clear message that the United States will adhere to the principles that make our country great. Our faithful adherence to checks and balances, fundamental fairness, and the rule of law has been and always will be one of our greatest strengths.

Last year, the President agreed to consult with Congress on the makeup of military commissions only because he was compelled to do so by the Supreme Court in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld. Congress should have taken that opportunity to pass legislation that would allow these trials to proceed in accordance with our laws and our values. Instead, we passed the Military Commissions Act, allowing the government to seize aliens on American soil or abroad, designate them “enemy combatants,” and, in one of the worst provisions of that bill, detain them indefinitely with no opportunity to challenge their detention in court.

It is time to start to undo the harm this legislation has caused.

....


Mr. Chairman, this state of affairs is unacceptable, and it almost surely violates our Constitution. But that determination will take years of protracted litigation. The Supreme Court has declined to review the D.C. Circuit’s decision on this issue, at least for now, so it is all the more urgent that Congress act to resolve this issue. We should restore the right to habeas corpus now. We must make clear that our laws do not permit the government to detain people – including people on U.S. soil -- indefinitely without court review. This bill is an important first step in reasserting the primacy of American values in our law. The elimination of habeas corpus in the Military Commissions Act was a historic and tragic mistake. It is time we correct it, and I congratulate you, Mr. Chairman, and Senator Specter, for moving so quickly to take this important step.


My theme this week is basically "civil liberties". The American colonists fought for our independence in 1776 from a tyrant (King George) and created a limited government that was supposed to safeguard our civil liberties. Yet slowly but surely the statists (Abe Lincoln, Wilson, FDR, Nixon, Reagan, Clinton, Bush, etc) eroded our freedoms in exchange for this bloated federal government that exists today. All of these sick bastards (including the fuckers running for president like Giuliani and Hillary) need to leave us the hell alone and choose honest-to-God professions like the rest of us and stay out of politics. These power-hungry career politicians will continue to shit on your civil liberties if you don't push back.

Thankfully Russ Feingold is providing a voice of reason in the senate.

Hopefully he runs for president after '08 and sets things straight, but I won't hold my breath for this current bunch of candidates (except Ron Paul).

Kos said it best: "War on Terror" is B.S.

Excuse me for posting this from DailyKos in its entirety but the recent plot to blow up the JFK airport in New York proves what we (the reasonable folks) have been saying all along:

Poor wingnuts. The aborted (and laughably unrealistic) effort to attack JFK is a stark reminder that every line they've fed us about this war on terror is horse crap.

1. The attackers had no ties to Iraq. Nor the Middle East. Nor Al Qaida.

2. It was homegrown terrorism. (Of course, the perpetrators were brown, so this merits a lot more hand-wringing than white domestic terrorists, especially the ones bombing abortion clinics.)

3. No illegal wiretaps or torture were necessary to crack the case.

4. It was thwarted by good ol' police work -- an informant inside the cell, working with a joint FBI/NYPD task force.

5. Whatever happened to "fighting them over there, so we don't have to fight them over here"?

6. War in Iraq and elsewhere isn't ending terrorism. In fact, it's fueling it.


Now the usual suspects praying for more terrorist attacks to justify their apocalyptic world view seem to be pouncing on this case as some sort of validation. In reality, everything about this plot rejects their views on handling terrorism.

And this isn't an isolated case -- the morons who were going to take down the Brooklyn Bridge with a blowtorch and the "Fort Dix Six" were taken down by traditional law enforcement activities. While terrorism is bound to be a low-grade threat to our nation for pretty much ever, this is all proof that bombing them over there isn't doing anything to stop that that threat over here and that law enforcement can handle the task without surrendering our Constitutional liberties to authoritarian fear-mongers.


Your crazy Republican dumb-fucks who foam at the mouth for Big Government to spy on us for the sake of "protection" have no grounds for calling ANYONE unpatriotic. Read the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence again... we founded this republic for the sake of preserving liberty above everything else.

Always a threat to Liberty: Standing Armies

The Father of the U.S. Constitution (James Madison) said it best:


A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.

Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is perhaps the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.


Thomas Jefferson also was opposed to the idea of standing armies during peacetime:



There are instruments so dangerous to the rights of the nation and which place them so totally at the mercy of their governors that those governors, whether legislative or executive, should be restrained from keeping such instruments on foot but in well-defined cases. Such an instrument is a standing army.

Were armies to be raised whenever a speck of war is visible in our horizon, we never should have been without them. Our resources would have been exhausted on dangers which have never happened, instead of being reserved for what is really to take place.

Nor is it conceived needful or safe that a standing army should be kept up in time of peace.


In case any of you crazy Republican lurkers and other opponents of Liberty want to accuse me of being anti-American or being in bed with the terrorists, eat a dick. You can clearly see that two of the founding fathers (and both former U.S. Presidents) were strongly opposed to standing armies. Obviously, we should revisit the notion and consider changing our current policies... we've strayed from the principles of Liberty that founded this country.

That's unless you're the type that hates Liberty (and war gives you a hard-on).

Ron Paul Kicks Everyone's ASS!



Despite the crowd of weirdo's at the 2nd Republican debate who cheered Rudy Guliani, any sane person will undoubtedly see that Ron Paul handed Rudy his ass on a plate for being ignorant about the causes of 9/11.

I've mentioned Ron Paul before in this blog and while I do not agree with him 100% of the time I do appreciate his presence in the presidential race.

Why do I even like the guy in first place? Check out that video above. Ron basically says that the Federal Reserve is robbing the poor and middle class of their spending power when the central bank pulls money out of its ass.

While everyone else is running their campaigns fearing dumb-fuck extremists who shit in caves, Ron Paul actually bases his campaign on shutting down this government thievery (among other things) that has gone on for too long.

Speaking of sound money, check out Ithaca's Hours. Imagine that... money that is actually worth something!

Holy Shit! I wish it were 5% again!

In Thomas Jefferson's first inaugural speech he spoke of the principles of our government, many of which we have totally allowed our government's to abandon. Anyhow, check this one out as it's explained by Charley Reese:

The fourth was preservation of the general government in its whole constitutional vigor as the sheet anchor of peace at home and safety abroad. The original purpose of the constitutional government was to represent all the states in such things as foreign policy and war while, as James Madison put it, in time of peace doing only about 5 percent of the governing. Here again, we have strayed far.


Again, people (including me) do complain that presidential elections are too expensive and that too much money is involved in federal races. One of the main reasons is because there is too much power in the Federal Government! We have totally shitted on the 9th and 10th amendments of the constitution and allowed everything to get out of hand since the days of Thomas Jefferson.

2007 predictions?

Sounds kinda ridiculous, but check these new years predictions out:
--In yet another case of government bureaucracy gone mad, some local health agency will insist that the churches and private homes where volunteers prepare food for homeless people pass rigorous, restaurant-standard health inspections or shut down operations.

The silly policy will be justified in the name of protecting the homeless when, in reality, it will really only lead to fewer homeless people getting fed.

--In a scenario straight out of George Orwell's "1984," several local governments will begin to encourage children to turn in their parents when the parents fail to abide by building and property code violations, such as mowing the grass, properly sorting recyclables, and similar mundanities.

--In an aptly striking display of the drug war's misplaced priorities, federal narcotics police will sit idly by while a government informant takes part in several drug-related murders. The reason for their inaction? It was more important to get information from the informant on drug dealing than preventing the killings.

--In other drug war news, when asked to explain how today's drug prohibition differs from the nation's failed attempt at alcohol prohibition in the 1920s, the nation's top drug cop will actually make the argument that alcohol prohibition was a success.

--A radio host in the nation's capital will play a hoax on his listeners, jokingly suggesting that all Muslims in America be identified with an armband or a tattoo. He will then express shock when a solid majority of callers to his show will express their agreement with the proposition.

--In Britain, where the Nanny State is even more aggressive than it is here in the U.S, a government health agency will insist that the company that makes the whimsically-named "Dragon Sausage" change the product's name, or pull it from the market.

The reason? Customers might be fooled into thinking the product contains actual dragon meat.

--Now that the federal government has made online gambling a crime, some state government will take things even further, and make writing about online gambling a crime.

--Some state that spends millions of dollars promoting its lottery will protect its monopoly on gambling by executing a man for the crime of wagering with his friends on football games.

--Having run out of things to tax, some state legislator will attempt to pass a law stating that any money left over on retail "gift cards" be forfeited to the state government.

--Taking the overuse of SWAT teams to new, un-parody-able levels, a federal SWAT team will raid a group of Tibetan monks touring the United States on a world peace mission.

--Some silly conservative will write a book blaming rap music and South Park for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

--A major U.S. magazine will riff on the obesity hysteria, and run a hoax article about the possibility of taxing fat people for their extra weight. The magazine will then get a significant amount of mail from people who support the idea.

--In a strategy pulled straight from the movie "Minority Report," police in some towns will start "pre-arresting" people for drunken driving.

--Not content with mere gun control, some local governments will begin to ban swords, too.

--After successfully pushing questionable science on the effects of secondhand smoke for decades, the public health movement will move on to their next hysteria: Secondhand drinking.

--Not content with micromanaging parents when it comes to bicycle helmets, car seats and any number of laws and regulations, some state legislator will get the idea that we should make kids who play soccer wear helmets.

--In the never-ending race to see which state can be toughest on sex offenders, one state will propose a public registry of people merely accused of sex crimes. They needn't be actually convicted, or even charged.

--In Great Britain, a country whose system of socialized medicine is commonly cited as something the U.S. should strive for, hospitals that defy the system and actually treat patients with some degree of haste and efficacy will be fined by the government for "overperforming."

--Two "public health" professionals will argue that what developing countries really need – places where people are starving and women still routinely die in childbirth – are policies like motorcycle helmet and seat belt laws.

Yeah, I know they all sound ridiculous but if you're apt to the news (or you clicked on a few links) you'd realize that these are things that ACTUALLY HAPPENED in 2006. It hard to predict what moronic ideas our governments and "law" enforcement officials will unleash in 2007. But as always... remain vigilant, tell a friend or two, and don't let 'em shit on our civil liberties if you can help it.

"Here's your Fucking Patriot Act"



From Crooks and Liars, this is a video of a student at ACLU being tasered and abused by the campus police for NOT having his student ID at the Library. The rent-a-cops made the situation worse by tasering him and abusing their power.

For those who still haven't realized that the REAL ID act is a piece of shit, this video might wake you up a bit. With nationalized IDs the cops will mandate that you carry your ID at all times... or else.

Remember, the govenment does this for your protection.

Fuck them! Click here to demand that this new congress repeal the REAL ID act.
