() America’s top commander, General David Petraeus, fainted during a congressional hearing as he was being grilled by senators sceptical about US strategy in Afghanistan.

His collapse came about an hour into the hearing as a Republican senator, John McCain, questioned him about recent setbacks. McCain stopped mid-sentence, his face frozen, as Petraeus slumped forward from his seat on to the witness table.

The hearing was suspended as Petraeus, looking dazed, was led out by army colleagues. He returned 20 minutes later, blaming not McCain’s questions but dehydration.

My Commentary: War Criminal Fever?

50 Shades of Tyranny

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Liberty Outlook,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"I will act violently on peaceful people to acquire... Total Socialism: energy, clothing, housing, food Modern Liberalism: universal healthcare Modern Conservatism: unemployment insurance, retirement insurance, limited healthcare (for seniors and poor), limited housing, food, energy (for the poor - 'safety net'), education Classical Liberalism: fire protection, roads Minarchism: police, military, courts Anarchy: I'm not willing to act violently on peaceful people. I will seek to acquire desired services without aggression through voluntary relationships."

“I will act violently on peaceful people to acquire…
Total Socialism: energy, clothing, housing, food
Modern Liberalism: universal healthcare
Modern Conservatism: unemployment insurance, retirement insurance, limited healthcare (for seniors and poor), limited housing, food, energy (for the poor – ‘safety net’), education
Classical Liberalism: fire protection, roads
Minarchism: police, military, courts
Anarchy: I’m not willing to act violently on peaceful people. I will seek to acquire desired services without aggression through voluntary relationships.”

My Commentary: 50 Shades of Tyranny. Enter through the narrow gate, and embrace the Law of Liberty.

Never Forget American Abuses at Abu Ghraib

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted a graphic being shared by the page, “The Abolitionist Movement“…

Rayn:

"Taxes are the price we pay to live in a civilized society"

“Taxes are the price we pay to live in a civilized society”

Stephen K.: What is happening in these photos, I have no idea.

Rayn: No? These images represent just a few of the many photos available to the public, showing American soldiers “just doing their job” by abusing and torturing detainees at Abu Ghraib prison, and happily posing with the dead body of one of their murder victims, Manadel al-Jamadi. This is a part of the U.S. government’s “War on Terror,” and it is, of course, a tax-payer funded operation. Ironically, we are supposed to believe that this sort of State-sponsored terrorism not only protects us from “the terrorists,” but that the tax-dollars pilfered from us all to fund these crimes against humanity (and other such horrors that almost no American has ever consented to), actually represent “our fair share,” as well as “the price we pay for a *civilized* society.” In other words, I’m supposed to accept these sorts of barbaric, criminal “services” because my tax dollars also go towards Muh Roads, muh schools, muh “law and order,” Muh Borders, and muh “aid for the poor.”

Complacency is Complicity!

"Anti-war protests 1966 Anti-war protests 2016"

“Anti-war protest 1966
