Home Front heats up (Libertarian Commentary on the News, #13-30B)

Good afternoon.  Over the weekend, some stories showing how bad things are getting on the home front showed up, and I want to discuss them.

In  Pennsylvania, a doctor shot a patient who killed a caseworker, using the gun kept in a wall display labeled “In case of emergency” in the medical office… NO, really, using his own personal weapon carried concealed (and against hospital edicts). Here is the USA Today story (which does disprove the claim by many people about this incident that NONE  of the Mainstream Media were willing to report it): Continue reading

Libertarian Commentary on the News, #13-30A: This and That

By Nathan Barton

Good morning, and here are a few news stories from last week and over the weekend: this and that.  Amazing what all is going on!

Raqqa, Syria is the new capitol of the ISIS caliphate in Syria and Mesopotamia (Iraq). The free people of Iraq are begging for American help to hold off the ISIS threat (how foolish of them).  Meanwhile, the “free people” of neighboring Syria are more and more rallying to the victorious and bloodthirsty victors of the Islamic State. Whether it is religious-political fervor OR self-protective fear, the state is worshiped by these people as part of their practice of Islam.  We can condemn them for this, but too many who claim to be “christian” or Jew do the same. Continue reading

A Lady and A Gun

By MamaLiberty

One of the most exciting things for me as a firearms and self defense instructor, is seeing an increasing number of women, especially young people, becoming interested and starting the process toward responsible gun ownership.

Once they have some training, two questions come from most of them. “How do I choose a gun?” is the first. The second, and even more difficult to answer, is, “How in the heck do I carry this thing?” Continue reading

Libertarian Commentary on the News, #14-29E: Simon Says?

by Nathan Barton

Good morning.  Fans of R. A. Heinlein’s “The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress” will recall the PR campaign featuring “Kilroy was here” and the little horned devil “Simon.”  Like the famous Eric Frank Russell novel “WASP” and others, the literature on how to use propaganda (PR) techniques to drive the government goons more nuts is readily available and fun to read – and also do.  Put a little bit of time into printing out and distributing some labels (sorry, I don’t know where to buy that adhesive that has little tiny pellets of acid activated by water to etch the glass, wish I did). Continue reading

Libertarian Commentary on the News, #14-29D: Sire, the peasants are revolting!

By Nathan Barton

Good morning!  Those who love Johnny Hart’s comics will recall, “Sire, the peasants are revolting!” as a great series of strips and book, and it should remind us all too well that our beloved Fuehrer seems to imitate the King of Id a whole lot.  IF this be “Lese Majeste” then by all means, make the most of it. Continue reading

Libertarian Commentary on the News, #14-29C: Situation crumbling?

By Nathan Barton

Good morning.  Are things starting to crumble even faster?  The Fuehrer and his minions got another few kicks in the teeth this week.  I feel so sorry for him!

Different sets of Nazgul made conflicting rulings on ObummerCare tax and subsidy provisions this week, setting the stage for the Nine Nazgul to decide the fate of one more piece of this large and gross Abominable Act.  One said that subsidies have been paid out by the IRS (at the Fuehrer’s order, natch) in 36 states that do not have health care exchanges (for the transfer of stolen money, apparently), while the other group said that the IRS can pretty much do what it pleases because Congress is so brain dead that it passed an ambiguous law that can say anything that the Fuehrer and his thuggish cohorts want it to. Continue reading

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
