The American Political Circus

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following status update here, posted by Voluntaryist, Larken Rose, and originally shared it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Larken Rose: When people believe the circus that is paraded in front of them, they are constantly complaining about how one PARTY, or one POLITICIAN, did something nasty, evil, etc. And as long as the puppeteers can keep people thinking that way–instead of seeing it as THE RULING CLASS doing evil crap–then people will keep focusing on handing the power to some OTHER party or politician. And when they get their way, they will then make excuses when their “own” politician or political party does evil crap.

The end result is that almost everyone in the country bitches about the evil crap done by the ruling class, while at the same time VOTING for it and making EXCUSES for it. Meanwhile, the ONE ruling class, with all of its puppets (“right” and “left”), is laughing at all the dumbasses who keep falling for the game.

If you are a Trump supporter today, you’re the exact same kind of pathetic dupe that was cheering for Obama back when he was the Puppet in Chief doing evil crap. And your excuses and attempted rationalizations don’t change the fact that YOU helped to further move authoritarianism along by cheering for yet another puppet. You can either continue with the delusions and psychological denial, pretending that Trump is gonna save us all, or you can stop being a total dumbass, acknowledge that he is just another puppet, and stop acting as a useful idiot for the most evil people on the planet. Your choice.

My Commentary: What up, marionette?

Consent Means Very Little to the Average Statist

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

“Gun Free School Zone – violators will face severe federal state and local criminal penalties”

What Percentage Of Mass Shootings Happen In ‘Gun Free Zones’? The Number Is Stunning.:
https://www.dailywire.com/news/27440/what-percentage-mass-shootings-happen-gun-free-amanda-prestigiacomo

(Amanda Prestigiacomo) After dozens of warning signs and alerts from concerned citizens went unnoticed, a shooter walked into a South Florida high school and murdered 17 people. In the wake of the tragic mass shooting, guns and “gun free zones” have become hot-button issues.

(Read entire article here…)

My Commentary: Blue: “Force gun control on entire population.”
Red: “Force teachers to arm themselves.”

CONSENT means very little to the average Statist. The lure of coercing innocent, peaceful individuals into arbitrary compliance is just too tempting to pass over. Well, guess what, control-freaks? Legitimate governments only have legal jurisdiction over criminals! And, though the State would have society believe otherwise, if there is No Victim, No Crime has been committed! Here’s an idea: how about you all run your OWN lives into the ground, and leave everyone to theirs!

Smug, Self-Important Control-Freaks in Charge of Government

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following captioned photo here, being shared by the page, “NORML Women’s Alliance,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“Democrats picked Congressman Joe Kennedy III (D-MA) to respond to President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday. He was one of only ten Democrats to vote against a 2015 amendment protecting medical cannabis patients and providers from federal prosecution. He also opposed measures on medical marijuana for veterans and CBD for kids with epilepsy, putting him way out of step with voters and his party.” (https://www.marijuanamoment.net/anti-cannabis-dem-giving-trump-sotu-response-newsletter-jan-29-2018/)

My Commentary: LOL! DemoCrackPots and RepubliConArtists are two wings of the same bird… Both use the violent apparatus of the State to initiate aggression against the peaceful. Both are full of smug, self-important control-freaks that support a continuation of the inherently-racist, freedom-crushing, prison-filling fraud, known as the “War on Drugs.”

Against All Major Evidence to the Contrary, Delusional Democrats Imagine Themselves as Champions of Minority Rights

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Liberty Minds”…

“We are a nation of many nationalities, many races, many religions – bound together by a single unity, the unity of freedom and equality. Whoever seeks to set one nationality against another, seeks to degrade all nationalities.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Thanks for the nice words, FDR! Wouldn’t want to degrade anyone”

My Commentary: Sorry, Democrats, but you’re completely delusional if you imagine that you ever have been, currently are, or ever will be, the party to champion the cause of minority rights! Try getting a firm grip on reality, already. You’re embarrassing yourselves with your blatant hypocrisy…

Aside from the above meme, here’s some more evidence of historical racism among Democrats, sprinkled with some current examples…

Watching Democrats suddenly pretend to give a single shit about Muslims and “immigrants,” now that the Orange Caveman is in office, while they sat silently as Obombya drone struck seven Middle-Eastern and African countries, murdering thousands of civilians, including hundreds of women and children, in the name of the fallacious, racist, imperialistic, terroristic, Orwellian “War on Terrorism,” and deported more of your fellow human beings than any previous President, and signing off on Bush’s “border fence” along Mexico, in 2006, as an Illinois Senator …

The reality is that Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin…

DemoCrackPots and RepubliConArtists are Indistinguishable!
http://acidrayn.com/2014/06/27/democrackpots-and-republiconartists-are-indistinguishable/

Those who truly want to fight for equal opportunity and justice for all, must finally reject the liberty-crushing, soul-sucking system of control know as Statism, along with the current two-party fraud the fuels it, here, in the United States, while simultaneously recognizing and embracing the reality of humanity’s universal, natural-borne state of Self-Ownership, respecting the Individual as the smallest minority on Earth!

A Little Moral Consistency, Please?

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Bush administration torture memo author, John Yoo

John Yoo Thinks Presidents Can Legally Torture Children. Even He Has “Grave Concerns” About Donald Trump:
https://theintercept.com/2017/02/06/john-yoo-thinks-presidents-can-legally-torture-children-even-he-has-grave-concerns-about-donald-trump/

(Jon SchwarzIN A NEW YORK TIMES op-ed today, John Yoo wrote the following words: “even I have grave concerns about Mr. Trump’s uses of presidential power.”

That should get your attention, since Yoo, a fancy law professor at Berkeley, is best known for authoring much of the legal advice claiming the U.S. could legally engage in torture when he served in George W. Bush’s Justice Department.

In fact, Yoo believed this so fervently that in 2005 he said that a president can torture children if necessary, and there’s nothing that Congress or international law can do to stop him.

My Commentary: For those of us logically-and-morally-consistent enough for unbiased, independent, critical thinking, this has been a severe problem, provoking vocal outrage and protest, from Bush, to Obama, and on to Trump. For the lemmings among us… “Go Team Red (or Blue)!” “The other guy did it, too (or first)!”

Yes… Rest assured that those innocent human beings indefinitely detained at Guantanamo Bay, for years, without a trial, or any legitimate proof of guilt, while being tortured, sexually-abused, force-fed, and even murdered, all in your name, and with your tax dollars, take solace in the merits of your stellar reasoning. They glady embrace their complete lack of due process, and are eternally grateful for the American brand of “justice” you defend (or accept)…
