Never Forget America’s Kent State Massacre!

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

“It is not the job of thinking people to be on the side of the executioners.” – Albert Camus

My Commentary: Never forget the Kent State massacre! During this year’s anniversary of the American government’s murderous crimes against innocent student anti-war protesters, which is today, take a moment to reflect on this egregious violation of human rights committed by a system that has historically purported to legally protect them. We must learn to reject ALL forms of democide – no matter who the perpetrator is – and to discard the blinder-based faith required to adhere to the religion of Statism!

The Government Scam Referred to as “Social Security”

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall…

Jason R.:

"Entitlements? I PAID CASH for my Social Security insurance. Our benefits are NOT some kind of charity or handout! Congressional benefits... premium federal healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days! - Now THAT'S welfare! And they have the nerve to call my retirement an entitlement??? Repost if you are sick and tired of their crap!"

Rayn: Indeed, Jason! Payments for SS/medicare were snatched out of every one of my paychecks without my consent since I was 15 years old! Anyone who would label such an arrangement as an “entitlement,” “charity,” or a “handout” is either sorely mistaken, or outright lying! As for Congressional benefits, I agree 100%. The so-called “public servants” who accept these outrageous “benefits” sure think very highly of themselves compared to the ones they “serve,” eh? Disgusting! And, sadly, a quick examination of the numbers, and the intricacies of the system, shows that the Social Security trust fund worked well enough, mathematically, to leave it as a major target for LOOTING by our own government, time and time again!

This is exactly why Social Security insurance’s biggest failure (besides not being voluntary) has been to put such a precious asset as our nation’s retirement into a single set of thieving, government hands, without our direct, daily, and individual oversight – all under the completely illogical and arrogant notion that “we the people” are unable to be trusted not to steal from ourselves, to understand the math involved in such a system, or even possibly, to have a few different versions of such a system in circulation, to meet the many different needs of the INDIVIDUALS that make up this country!

Speaking of welfare, how about CORPORATE WELFARE? According to the Cato Institute, the U.S. federal government spent $92 BILLION on corporate welfare during fiscal year 2006, alone! And, to add the the egregious nature of this virtual theft, recipients included such companies as BOEING, XEROX, IBM, MOTOROLA, DOW CHEMICAL and GENERAL ELECTRIC!!! Meanwhile, the same politicians that demand reforms for social programs largely REMAIN SILENT on this issue!!!!

The Kind of Man Who Wants Government to Adopt and Enforce His Ideas…

My Commentary: True dat!

The Fix is In!

The following correspondence originally took place here, upon the Facebook page, “Infowar Coalition“…

Infowar Coalition:

“The system isn’t broken, it was built this way”

Virginia T.: Not from its inception, it wasn’t!

Kari H.: Depends on which ‘system’ you’re referring to..

Rayn: “The system isn’t broken. It’s fixed.”

Jadranka V.: It is built with bodies of 99% of people living these planet!

Ryan V.: same guy twice in one photo?

Jaci M.: I was about to say are they twins?

Tanner L.: No its just broken. Try not to spread tooo much propaganda now.

 

State Destroys Freshly-Packaged Deer Meat Intended for the Homeless

Louisiana Forces Homeless Shelter to Destroy $8,000 Worth of Deer Meat:
http://houston.cbslocal.com/2013/02/25/louisiana-forces-homeless-shelter-to-destroy-8000-worth-of-deer-meat/

Louisiana’s State Health Department forced a homeless shelter to destroy $8,000 worth of deer meat because it was donated from a hunter organization.

KTBS-TV reports that the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission lost 1,600 pounds of venison because the state’s Health Department doesn’t recognize Hunters for the Hungry, an organization that allows hunters to donate any extra game to charity.

“We didn’t find anything wrong with it,” Rev. Henry Martin told KTBS. “It was processed correctly, it was packaged correctly.”

My Commentary: Statists often make the false claim that charity for the homeless is simply “too rare to be reliable,” while quickly jumping to the non-sequitur logical fallacy that society then “needs” government programs to “care” for such individuals (AKA loathe, criminalize, abuse and rob them via State employees, while the public subsists on a steady diet of “out of sight, out of mind”). Yet, almost NONE of these sadly misinformed individuals have ever even been homeless – and, are just talking out of their asses on a very important, real life issue, with the hope that no one will call them out on their bluff, or that others are just as ignorant as they are! And, while these wanna-be do-gooders are busy worshiping the State, relishing in the callous, apathetic, hands-off, homeless-ignoring, false charity that comes with their dutiful payment of “taxes,” they seem to have forgotten one important fact: there IS one thing that the government HATES more than homeless and poor people, and that is: COMPETITION! The State literally NEEDS to be NEEDED by the public, or else, it risks becoming OBSOLETE! Therefore, government ALWAYS finds new and creative ways to make our legitimate efforts to help others in need into criminal activity that must be prevented at all costs. And, whether it be through de facto means, such as lining the path to REAL assistance for those in need with massive levels of bureaucratic red tape, or through outright cold-hearted bans on helping those without shelter under the guise of “safety,” the proof is always in the pudding! Never forget that “by their fruit, you WILL know them”!
