Rand Paul Freedom Fighter

Fascinating stuff plagiarism. Could it just be that libertarians are so enamored of freedom that copying others work is covered by their ideological moral framework? Think about it, freedom is a kinda vague concept, so why not claim freedom to copy? It's not like he was asked to do something original, there's nothing original about anything else he says so why is this different? He should make a stand for freedom and say, 'yes, I copied lots of stuff but I never claimed originality, I only claimed my libertarian freedom to copy.' See how easy that is when freedom is the key. Think about all the nonsensical stuff he copied from dad. Libertarians are fun to watch.

If Rand Paul were a woman.

Obamacare Questions

As I watch MSM's gnashing of teeth and whining over the ACA, as I watch republicans whine about the ACA, I wonder....

Why is there so little information about the positives of the ACA?
Why is there little news on the people in America who need healthcare?
Why is there no news on the states that are doing a good job implementing the ACA?
Why is there no investigation into why insurers and others are opposed to the ACA?
Why is affordable healthcare for all Americans not a priority instead of an impossibility?
When did America become the 'can't do' nation?
When did any news agency or republican take note before October 2013 of insurers dropping Americans from healthcare or raising rates constantly?
When was the last time a news source reported on Americans whose coverage was dropped or failed to cover their health condition prior to October 2013?
OK, I repeat myself.
How is it our healthcare ranks 37th in world and we aren't embarrassed as a nation?
Why is it tha…

Republican Ideology

Republican Ideology the Past One Hundred Years (Work in Progress, updated 08/14/2013)

"...Ideology makes men fight for their servitude as stubbornly as though it were their salvation." Deleuze/Guattari

Roaring Twenties, America turns inward after WWI, laissez faire economics prevail
Harding reduces taxes on the wealthy to spur growth
Three consecutive republican administrations, supply side economy, little regulation
Republicans align themselves with big business
Coolidge administration incompetent while speculation takes hold of nation
Hoover elected in landslide
Coolidge/Hoover presidencies, bubble mentality assures wall street speculation growth
Wall Street grows out of control, everyone wants in
Wall street market exchange cannot control speculative mood
Bubble bursts, banks collapse, investment trusts collapse, economy starts long downward spiral
Unable to control speculation wall street equally ineffective in controlling crash
Banking industry attempts control of secur…

Martin Zimmerman

Your teenage son or daughter is walking home in the rain, it is growing dark, she is on the phone with a friend and eating candy she just bought from a nearby convenience store. The hood is up on her jacket when a man starts following her in his car. She mentions this to a friend on the phone. Your son keeps walking. Soon your daughter walks behind a building, and the man in the car gets out and follows her. Your son does not know what motivates the follower. Soon they are so close, fear of each other causes a scuffle. Your daughter does not realize the man is armed with a gun. She fights the man to the ground and in the melee he is injured. He pulls a gun and kills your daughter. How do you feel? What gave him the right to follow and pursue your son? What motivated him to follow? What right did your son have in this situation?

Guns Love Em or Hate Em

The problem is that nothing is so simple as the assumption all things are either or. You are either responsible or not responsible. Are we creations of our self. Does possibility ever enter the picture. I am for the moment a mildly psychopathic teenager, I have access to various weapons, I go out into the street and I kill many people with my weapons. I am for the moment a mildly psychopathic teenager, I have no access to weapons I go out into street and I scream obscenities at the moon and other more animate objects who smile and wave. So then responsibility lies solely with the person regardless of the situation, or the background of the person, or the possibilities of violence? Why don't we arm small children and tell them be careful and if we did do we have any culpability in what happens? But little children don't know how to handle these weapons. Hm...but then we assume everyone else does. And thus everyone else can be armed because now we assume responsibility regardles…

What the heck is wrong with white people?

Let's face it folks white people are just plain bad news. Look at South Carolina for instance, white people just voted into office a known philanderer and misappropriator of tax payer money. And he is a republican too, you think maybe that is what they mean by being more inclusive?

Look too at Congress, now what moral person thinks avoiding delays at airports is more important than meals on wheels for the elderly who rely on it for sustenance? Anyone.

Then there is the hurt done to children through reductions in head start. Didn't I hear lots of white people say children are our future and didn't I see lots of white people holding and kissing children? Odd huh, guess it must be rich white children?

And then to top it off, these same white people pray all the time. Even congress starts each session with prayer. Ask yourself what is it they pray for, fast lines at airports or food for the bed ridden? Must be those lines? 'God, please speed up those lines, amen.'

Thank a Liberal

The Greatest Americans are from the left side of life for who else could imagine a better world. "Much of what we now take for granted as common sense was once espoused by people who were widely considered left-wing radicals."

The greatest Americans are on the left side of the political spectrum, why is that? Liberals, lefties, and other left leaning radicals need to take a bow. I've often asked my conservative friends to list conservative accomplishments. What you get is an invasion of liberal ideas starting with Humanism in the middle ages, the Renaissance, and finally the Enlightenment. As I have noted often, no nation was founded by conservative ideas as conservative ideas require a foundation and foundations do not exist on their own, they must be imagined and pushed forward against a wall of let's keep things as they are.

"The 20Th century is a remarkable story of progressive accomplishments against overwhelming odds. But it is not a tale of steady progr…

It's not guns, it's statistics that kill people

It isn't guns or people, it's statistics that kill people. Those darn statistics, we gotta outlaw them in America, they make us look bad. All these shootings make America look uncivilized, a nation full of savages, this has got to stop, ban statistics.

Myth: A gun in the home increases personal safety.
Fact: A gun in the home make homicide 2.7 times more likely.


"Keeping a gun in the home carries a murder risk 2.7 times greater than not keeping one, according to a study by Arthur Kellermann. The National Rifle Association has fiercely attacked this study, but it remains valid despite its criticisms. The study found that people are 21 times more likely to be killed by someone they know than a stranger breaking into the house. Half of the murders were over arguments or romantic triangles. The study also found that the increased murder rate in gun-owning households was entirely due to an increase in gun homicides only, not any other murder method. It further found that gun-o…
