So I keep seeing these commercials on-line from Apple showing how imporant privacy is, and how they keep working to maintain privacy on iPhone. Last I heard, the Government could pretty much get into any iPhone anyway so I assumed… Read More ›
America is not free. You are not free.
You can’t drive a car without permission from the government. If you do you will be fined. If you refuse to pay the fine and drive without permission, you will be arrested. If you resist arrest you will be killed…. Read More ›
Gordon Ramsay’s troubles are a teachable moment for us about the Deep State
I heard about Gordon Ramsay getting in trouble for comments he made nine years ago on the Tonight Show and it reminded me how useful the governments data mining on all of us will be in the future when they… Read More ›
Permits Required for Road Kill
In today’s “There should be a law!” post, someone decided that there should be a law that requires individuals to secure permits to pick up and eat roadkill. Why? As a Libertarian, I fully understand that one of the prime… Read More ›
In California, non commercial cars pay commercial tax, but commercial cars pay no commercial tax. This is Government.
In California, all pickup trucks are considered commercial vehicles – vehicles used to earn an income. All of them. Doesn’t matter what you use it for; nor its size, nor trim, nor make nor model. Like Plato’s forms, if it… Read More ›
I just realized, my kids aren’t really mine either…
I’ve accepted the fact that none of us can own our house, or own our land or our cars – even after we completely pay for them. That’s just a fact. Most of us agree we do own ourselves, because… Read More ›
Voting is not Consent
I was listening, accidentally, to a podcast yesterday that quoted the following from Lysander Spooner. I rarely hear such insightful observations of such crystal clarity as to make even the most clouded of thought and irrational among us pause for… Read More ›
How buying a house and getting a job are now Government granted privileges.
Nobody reads the back of the paper you get from the DMV that you sign to renew your driver’s license, but let me tell you what it says as I just got mine… First, if you kill someone from a… Read More ›
If you have high blood pressure, the Government will take your guns eventually.
It’s pretty obvious how the Government, mostly Liberals or Democrats, will take away your guns or ban you from getting any. And I am sure the Republicans won’t get in the way – I have yet to figure out what… Read More ›
Bunny Friend Park Mass Shooting? What shooting?
So yeah, I never heard of it either. Thanks to Hot Air for writing something about it. So in 2015, ten men with guns shot up a crowd during a parade in a major tourist city and there is almost… Read More ›
Care.com Supports Dream Act. Unsupport Care.com.
I had to end my membership with Care.com today due to an email I received from them about their support of the Dream Act. I cannot financially support a company that has chosen to reward parents who committed a felony… Read More ›
DACA – The Truth (and Trump)
Stefan makes a great case against DACA using math. If you don’t believe in math, then go ahead and skip this post. If you want more government, more taxes, more inflation and fewer jobs, fewer opportunities, a shrinking economy and… Read More ›
Why we are slaves to the Government using the watermelon analogy.
What is the difference between the Government chaining me to a soup kitchen where I ladle out soup and bread to poor people for four hours a day as a slave, or just me working in my office all day… Read More ›
Democrats: The policies and politicians you support are destroying small businesses in America. How do you FEEL about that?
Democrats go on at length about companies and people (except movie stars, pro sport players and socially popular liberal supporters) not paying their fair share. What I doubt they know is that according to the last census, there were 27.9… Read More ›
Amazon & Walmart Drive Down Healthcare Insurance Prices
Well, they would, if they had the same access to offer healthcare insurance as they do for groceries, since they are now engaged in a grocery price war… “The result in recent months has been a high-stakes race to the… Read More ›
Filing taxes could be free and simple. But H&R Block and Intuit are still lobbying against it.
This is how the sausage is made. Government is not here to help you, it’s here to help itself. The sooner we fully appreciate this, the sooner we can get rid of it. “Intuit spent more than $2 million lobbying… Read More ›
March 7, 2017 – The last day of the Trump Presidency.
It took exactly 66 days for Trump’s presidency to become a complete failure. Impressive, but not unpredictable. What is most interesting to me, is the 62,984,825 people in America that just found out that they live in a country where… Read More ›
What Hitler thought of us Libertarians…
I have seen this scene from Der Untergang used many times to make fun of many things, but being a Libertarian, this is my favorite Hitler Parody from Downfall (Der Untergang). By the by, Downfall was an excellent movie. Enjoy… Read More ›
