Libertarian Commentary on the News, #14-29B: Nanny State Stupidity

By Nathan Barton

In Texas, the cartels are “suspected” as high-caliber gunfire sends Border Patrol scrambling on Rio Grande.

Mama’s Note: Maybe they should borrow some guns from the post office and shoot back…  Do they even have “rape whistles?”

Hmmm.  Apparently in the interests of being “kinder and gentler” the BP is less heavily armed at the border than everywhere else in the nation, but I notice that they claim that they do not have the armored vehicles capable of protecting them against this harassing fire.  Why? Continue reading

Libertarian Commentary on the News, #14-29A: government does NOT protect us.

By Nathan Barton

Good morning.  Here are a few examples in the news about what government does (and does not do).  Be warned, please.

Job growth picks up in states that raised minimum wage, according to Fox News, quoting US Department of Labor “data” – reminding us how MUCH statistics lie. Continue reading

America: Imagine The World Without Her

By Bradley Harrington

“That’s how we see you around the world, as one of the greatest ideas in human history… This country was the first to claw its way out of darkness, and put that on paper.” – Bono, U2 lead singer, Georgetown University speech, 2012 -

In “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” film producer and noted conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza gets right to the point: “In America,” he states, “you get to write your own script.” Continue reading

Libertarian commentary on the News, #14-28E: Evil is as stupid does.

by Nathan Barton

Good morning this weekend, as we swelter in the heat again.

The Black Death (pneumonic plague) has appeared in Denver, not just in remote prairie dog villages.  ​This Jennifer House does not seem to know much about the matter.  Or is being carefully coached in what to say.  I work with CDPHE on a nearly-daily basis, and my confidence in them is very, very low.  It is obvious that the woman has no grounding in basic public health OR the plague.​

Mama’s Note: Jennifer is a government employee… tells you all you need to know. Continue reading

Libertarian Commentary on the News, #14-28D: Stupid people and agencies

By Nathan Barton

Good morning, and enjoy the heat!  Did you know that the recent cold spell is all the fault of man made global warming?  The “polar vortex” is due to instability in the Arctic, which is caused by – that’s right – global warming.  I mentioned in the last column that PopSci claims that the Antarctic ice is melting and will cause the sea level to rise by 10 feet – not inches, feet.  But while people in Europe panic over melting glaciers in the Alps, a few historians have pointed out that in classical Roman times (First Century AD), there WERE no glaciers in the Alps.  Of course, the true believers in global warming believe that WE are as stupid as their minions are.  But we can easily figure out who is lying, can’t we?  On to news: Continue reading

Libertarian commentary on the news, #14-28C: Contrasts between business and government

By Nathan Barton

Good morning.  Just a short column today, after being slow on writing for a couple of days., due to travel and many distractions.  But here we go.

Canaanite front: Israel accepts truce plan; Hamas balks.  The Hamas rejection came just minutes after Israel’s security cabinet decided to embrace terms set forward late Monday night by Egypt’s military-backed government.  If it isn’t one side, it is the other.  Neither side is telling the truth, without a doubt. Continue reading

Not My Problem

By MamaLiberty

Not my problem. I’m sure a lot of people would consider that a harsh thing to say, but if you’ll stay with me a bit you should easily see that it is the only real answer to the whole “politically correct” thing sweeping this country and, incidentally, the world.

“You made me mad. You didn’t make me happy. I’m offended.” You can probably add a hundred more such phrases people use to control what you do, say and even what you believe. That’s exactly what happens when a few people can choose any word or object, assign a specific (often NEW and ugly) meaning to it, and then demand that nobody use that word or object because it “makes them feel”… whatever. Continue reading

Libertarian commentary on the news, #14-28B: This and that

By Nathan Barton

Good morning. Congressional Democrats have unveiled a bill to override the Nine Nazgul’s ruling on the Hobby Lobby case.  Everyone says this bill has absolutely no chance of passing.  But we can expect this to be a constant issue and it is intended to help election-year fundraising and vote getting (and cheating) among the Dems’ loyalists.  Certainly it has led to certain Democratic cretin-stars to openly say what they have believed for years: that the First Amendment is as unacceptable to them as the 2nd, that religion must be suppressed and subordinate in ALL ways to government, and that refusing to pay for something that is wrong for someone IS stealing their “right” to be a parasite and live off you in every way that they can.  It should make it easier to show people how wicked and evil government is, once they get past the whinging give-me attitude. Continue reading

Climate Change Quackery, Part II

By Bradley Harrington

He who seeks to deceive will always find someone who will allow himself to be deceived.” – Niccolo Machiavelli, “The Prince,” 1532 -

As detailed in Part I, a truly scientific case for man-made “climate change” has yet to be made, but never underestimate the ability of the “climate changers” to hide that reality – and nowhere does that lack show up more tellingly than in their “Appeal to Authority” campaign to convince lay-people that it’s all “settled science.” Continue reading

Libertarian commentary on the news, #14-28A: Stupid government: all the wars

By Nathan Barton

Good morning: it has truly been said that war is the health of the state, and today’s headlines prove it.  Here are a few examples of the stupidity of government and its wars.

War on Some Drugs: There is a right way to do things, and a good many wrong ways to do them: government almost inevitably chooses the wrong way(s) to do something.  Consider, for example, this last week’s “legalization”  of marijuana for recreational use in Washington State, one of the more “progressive” states of the Fifty, but one in which voters nearly TWO years ago voted to legalize the selling, purchase, ownership, and consumption of cannabis.
