Cliven Bundy, The State and Conservative Cowards

On the “Conservative” over-reaction to Cliven Bundy:

Cowards. The guy wasn’t saying that black people belonged in slavery or would be better off as slaves as opposed to being free people.  He was talking about a specific subset of black people. He was referring to those on the government dole.  He wasn’t PC, so, of course, the PC cowards ran from his statement.  In my opinion, he had a valid point. Crudely made but a valid point. I’ve often wondered the same thing. Not specifically about black people or black people on the government dole but about people in general who are dependent upon the government.  When dependent upon the government, one is not a free person. One is subject to the whims of the State. This is a form of servitude.

It is growing worse. As people become more and more ignorant of the truth, they are falling for the demonization of the government dependent even as the STATE is forcing more and more of the citizenry into dependence.  After all, what is “Obamacare” but a crude and coercive expansion of citizen dependence upon the State. Now, we have States and other entities which wish to fully invade the nearly non-existent privacy of any individual who is dependent upon the government. Urinalysis checks, in home checks, child safety and welfare checks.

How long before a provision is added to the Affordable Care Act requiring urinalysis testing prior to receipt of any “benefits?”  (Remember Liberals, there will come a time when the GOP takes the White House and Congress.  The worm always turns.)  Is this what you call freedom?  It is definitively not what I call freedom.

Bundy’s point on “putting their men in prison” (paraphrased as I can’t recall exact wording) is potent. But no one listens to this truth because he used the word “negro” and his point was made crudely.  Black leaders go on and on about the prison population of America being essentially a BLACK population and the “War on Drugs” being aimed at America’s young, black male population. Bundy was essentially speaking to this truth and because he used the term “Negro” BOOM! he’s a racist.  (On a side note, I had no idea that Negro was an unacceptable term.  I guess it’s like the term “niggardly.”  It sounds vaguely racist to liberals and, therefore, it must be a bad word.  PC Censorship at it’s finest.)

So, what we are saying is that we must couch our truths in lies in order for them to be accepted and understood.  Cliven Bundy stated what many others have stated over the years. However, he’s a white, redneck, country, inarticulate old fella and, therefore, is not allowed to speak truths.  How dare a white man speak about problems in the Black community. Fuck….I mean if an old white dude can see it…well, there are issues.

I had black and white friends growing up. When the Black kids came home with me, Grandpa Les treated them exactly the same as he treated the White kids.  Yet, my Grandfather used the word “nigger” once in front of me.  I think I was 14 at the time.  In explaining to me his reason for his quitting smoking, he said;  “I couldn’t afford cigarettes for me and the niggers at work.”   He would be considered racist by PC folks like Glenn Beck and Rachel Maddow.  I never saw him treat black people differently from white people.  He worked, ate lunch, socialized with Black folks daily for a couple of decades at his garage.  I never heard him make a disparaging remark about Black people in general.  Just that one statement.  Yet, despite his daily interactions with Black folks and despite his friendship towards and total lack of negativity towards my Black friends or me for having Black friends, that one instance of his use of the “N” word would be enough to destroy him in the minds of politically correct idiots in the media and politics.

There is a strain of racism and/or bigotry in all of us.  There is always a degree of a lack of understanding and empathy with/for the other in each of us.  Why can’t they…..? Why won’t they…..?  Cliven Bundy, like all of us, has his prejudices, I am certain of it. I am certain of it because I have never met a human being who did not have prejudices.  To sit here and pretend that you are without them is a great lie…it is self deception.  It’s cowardice, duplicitous and a complete lack of self-knowledge. It is denial. It is hypocrisy.

AND the thing that most of America is missing is that all of this talk of racism (division) brings about is a diversion. A diversion from the real issue.  Cliven Bundy is a “racist bum.”  Therefore, the State can do as it pleases with him. In the exact same manner that it persecutes and oppresses those who are dependent upon the government.  However, let’s not talk about the State and it’s assault on the rights of the Citizenry.  Instead, let us speak about racism.

Meanwhile, pee in that bottle like a good little boy and girl.  Stand in line for security at the airport, let the TSA goon molest you.  Don’t complain when the police “mistakenly” raid your home for drugs.  You’re free.  You’re secure.  We are doing it all for you says the STATE.

American Idiots

Why do people trust the new administration or the last administration? How is it possible?

Each Presidential Administration in the past 100 years has been proven to have lied to the Citizenry of this nation. It has been proved that each of these persons and their underlings have lied, connived, circumvented the Constitution and profited from doing so.

Yet, we still believe that this one…yes, this one, the last one and the next one is, was or will be telling us the truth.

Americans are this pathetically stupid?

I keep going back to Johnny Walker Lindh. This guy was paraded in front of America as if he were the blood soaked re-incarnation of Tamerlane.

In the end, he was naught but a drug addled boy who had never handled a gun and was rounded up amongst a group of half assed “talibs” like cattle.

The dude did nothing. His crime was being in the wrong place at the wrong time and refusing to admit guilt when he was really guilty of nothing.

Yet, he was railroaded through our justice system and sentenced to prison.

Our system of justice is warped or perhaps, there is no justice in America. There is only those who have the funds to manipulate the legal system and those who do not.  Woe be unto those who do not have the means to fight and go against the grain.

I am supposedly a free man from a country governed by the principles of Liberty, yet, they tell me that I need permission to travel to Cuba.

Freedom?  Liberty?

America ~ Land of the Slave, Home of the Poltroon

 

 

Have we become so fearful that we will allow Caeser to tear asunder the fundamental rights of the American People?  Shall we allow the spirit of the Declaration of Independence to be snuffed by fear mongers and greed motivated cowards.

Has America fallen to such lows that we regard security more highly than Freedom and Liberty?

The Patriot Act, Homeland Security, the TSA bullies in our Airports providing “security” to the American people.   I see it differently.  I see these acts and institutions as a move towards the enslavement of the American people.  They are treasonous acts against Liberty.

America!  Open your eyes!  Before it’s too late…

The Promise of America. Is there Hope?

The hatred and vitriol directed towards homosexuals and immigrants from Latin America is a stain upon the fabric of American Society today. This same venom that was once directed at the Natives, Irish, Black people, Chinese and Japanese Immigrants darkens the soul of every American who does not speak out against it.

The War on Drugs is a war on American Liberty. As is the War on Terror. These are threats fabricated by the American Federal Government that are being used to erode our liberties.

Where is the America of the Revolution? Where is the America of the Statue of Liberty? When did we lose our attachments to the spirit of the Declaration of Independence and the “pursuit of happiness” and become a nation in pursuit of security from fabricated threats.

We send our troops around the world to liberate the peoples of other nations while we ignore, shun and sow hate against our neighbors.

America! We are a nation of immigrants. We were once the Champion of the oppressed. What has happened?

“I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.”

Thomas Jefferson

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyrannyThomas Jefferson

All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian.

Racism and Bigotry

http://techbuddha.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/obama-hope.jpg

I’m tired of people whining when they think that I am calling them a racist or bigot.  If you are the type of person who cuts the word “Hope” from this picture and replace it with the world “Nigger.”  If you are the type of person who creates or forwards emails that purposely denigrate whole groups of folks based on false information or misinformation.

If you participate in these types of activities, I’m not calling you a racist or a bigot.  Your actions and words are an admission of your guilt and your true feelings.  Don’t whine to me when I dispute the lies and ignorance of these actions and words.

Here’s a bit of a wake up call for all of you.  Not all Muslims are terrorists or want to push Sharia on the world.  Not all Black people are unemployed and on welfare.  There are Muslims serving in the military and who have served in the military honorably. I work with a Muslim right now who is a true American and one of the better human beings whom I have had the pleasure to know in my life.   These folks love America and what she represents in the World.  If you disagree with Obama over policy, that’s fine.  I do as well.  If you hate Obama because he’s black or you think he’s a Muslim, you’re an ignorant racist/bigot.  Period.

If you are a racist or a bigot, please move to Waziristan.  Many folks in that region are as ignorant, bigoted and racist as are you.  I don’t want your ignorance in my America.

America ~ Governement of the Government, For the Government and By the Government

It was not supposed to be this way. We elect the government. It works for us. How did it get so removed, so unbridled, so arrogant that it can tell us how to live our personal lives? Evil rarely comes upon us all at once, and liberty is rarely lost in one stroke. It happens gradually, over the years and decades and even centuries. A little stretch here, a cave in there, powers are slowly taken from the states and the people and before you know it, we have one big monster government that recognizes no restraint on its ability to tell us how to live. It claims the power to regulate any activity, tax any behavior, and demand conformity to any standard it chooses. — Andrew Napolitano

H.L. Mencken

What is any political campaign save a concerted effort to turn out a set of politicians who are admittedly bad and put in a set who are thought to be better. The former assumption, I believe is always sound; the latter is just as certainly false. For if experience teaches us anything at all it teaches us this: that a good politician, under democracy, is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar.

Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule — and both commonly succeed, and are right… The United States has never developed an aristocracy really disinterested or an intelligentsia really intelligent. Its history is simply a record of vacillations between two gangs of frauds.

We live in a land of abounding quackeries, and if we do not learn how to laugh we succumb to the melancholy disease which afflicts the race of viewers-with-alarm… In no other country known to me is life as safe and agreeable, taking one day with another, as it is in These States. Even in a great Depression few if any starve, and even in a great war the number who suffer by it is vastly surpassed by the number who fatten on it and enjoy it. Thus my view of my country is predominantly tolerant and amiable. I do not believe in democracy, but I am perfectly willing to admit that it provides the only really amusing form of government ever endured by mankind.

I believe in only one thing and that thing is human liberty. If ever a man is to achieve anything like dignity, it can happen only if superior men are given absolute freedom to think what they want to think and say what they want to say. I am against any man and any organization which seeks to limit or deny that freedom. . . [and] the superior man can be sure of freedom only if it is given to all men.

The difference between a moral man and a man of honor is that the latter regrets a discreditable act, even when it has worked and he has not been caught.

The fact is that the average man’s love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. He is not actually happy when free; he is uncomfortable, a bit alarmed, and intolerably lonely. Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty — and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies.

I very well may have posted these before. They bear repeating.

Free Esha Momeni Now (10/22/08)

This is the lunacy with which Barack Obama will have to contend when “talking” to the mad leaders of Iran. Good luck with that.

We hear about these horrible incidents, often fictionalized in movies and novels. An idealistic, compassionate person is detained and imprisoned. Cold and calculated attempts by repressive regimes to silence critics are as old as history itself. Sometimes it hits so close to home that you can feel it deep in your gut. Such is the current situation involving Esha Momeni, an American-born student of Iranian descent. Since her arrest on October 15th, Esha has languished in the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran. Her supposed crime was conducting video interviews related to issues of feminism, with members of an organization that has experienced consistent harrassment and intimidation by the Iranian government. From the sketchy reports that are emerging, she is now in solitary confinement, and her family is also being harassed.

Esha Momeni

Free Tibet Now!!!

Tibetans and their supporters are on the move throughout the free world. It’s the perfect time to move against the communist human rights violating monolith that is China.

China . The Host of the 2008 Summer Olympics. It’s sacrilege. The Olympics are supposed to be symbolic of peace,cooperation and harmony among nations. Amongst peoples. China, the megalithic Communist Monster. China the world devourer. China of Tienanmen Square fame–Tanks to squash a student protest. China who allowed millions to perish so that a few well fed maniacal murderers could retain power. China. Led for nearly 3 decades by Mao Zedong. The greatest mass murderer to walk the earth. The man who oversaw the murder of 70 Million Chinese so that he could frighten the rest into obeisance. Mao Zedong.

In 1950, China invaded Tibet. Extending the Maoist carnage and murder spree into the worlds most peaceful province. China rolled into Tibet and commenced to torturing and murdering Monks and ordinary citizens in the thousands and hundreds of thousands.

Why did Mao want Tibet? What was his claim?

It was simply a matter of Chinese prestige. Mao thought that all of the peoples of the area should have the opportunity to be murdered in his evil grasp and under his failed leadership.

In 1246, a Mongolian annexed Tibet into the greater Mongolian Empire. That Mongol Ruler was Khubalai Khan. Great Grandson of Genghis Khan. Khubalai Khan eventually conquered and united what we know today as China. This is the first instance in history of a united China. Khubalai founded the Yuan Dynasty. This is considered the first Dynasty of modern China. The China that we know today.

The China we know today was created by a Mongolian. Don’t tell the Chinese this. For some reason, it angers them. They see the Mongols as a primitive people. But it took a Mongol Emperor to bring China together. it was a Mongol Emperor who first brought Tibet into the Chinese sphere of influence.

China’s claim to Tibet is as ridiculous as a Mongolian claim to China.

China has brought herself these troubles. The Chinese want to join the Global scene as a full and respected partner. Yet, they still want to carry on as belligerent neighbors. Taiwan is another example of Chinese over-reaching and trouble making. Taiwan is a separate nation. Yet, China continues to want to claim it as part of mainland China. China wants a peaceful partnership with the free world. BUT they don’t want to be held to the standard of peaceful nations. China wants to make money off the West even as they terrify and cow their own citizens. Even as they deny many of their citizens basic human rights.

The Taiwanese have built a country based on capitalism and free markets. It’s people were thriving even as Mao was murdering millions in his failed Cultural experiments (revolutions). Yet, China demands the right to rule over the island nation as if China were the author of Taiwan’s successes.

Now that the Olympics have given the enemies of China a world wide forum, expect the Tibetans and other groups to surface. As the Olympics draw closer, it will be more and more difficult for China and the governments of the participating nations to ignore their demands.

Tibet has international support. I’m interested to see where the pressure on China leads. Will China react as they have in the past with violence and severe punishments? Will they cave to international pressure? Will China be forced to stop murdering innocent folks for the crime of desiring freedom and liberty? Will the world stand up and be counted? Or will the same eyes which refused to see the genocide in Darfur be willfully blind still?

Will Tibet finally gain their independence or at least autonomy? Or will Chinese hypocrisy and murder be rewarded yet again by it’s eager accomplices in the West?

Of course, we all want our cheap electronics, tennis shoes and t-shirts from Walmart via cheap Chinese labor. Therefore, the chances of China being held to any real standard of human rights is slim to non-existant. It’s the same with oil. We want our cheap products. And Hell! We’re free. We have our liberty. Why should anyone care about those damn Chinese or Tibetans? Or anyone else for that matter.

I’ve met a few Tibetans along the path of my life. They have always been nice, peaceful people. Exactly what you would expect. As if each Tibetan were an emissary of the Dalai Lama himself. Poised. Perfectly composed. Even when the subject of the mighty Dragon arose.

Peace.
