    Actually, I see it as eminently and elegantly simple. The complexities arise as part and parcel of the nature, but of its perversion. The reason things get complicated is because some people want that to which they are not entitled. "I want my interstate highways, and by GOD I will have them, dammit!" When that is one of your positions, complexity has been artificially injected into the broader issues of free living because interstates do no build themselves. They require great resources and if you are going to have them built, those resources do not simply fall from Jed Clampett's butt, ready to assemble themselves into ready-made highways. If the resources are not available for the free taking, then they must be acquired from... well, YOU. Now add the presumed fact that John Dough has no interest in superhighways. All righteousness would then say "leave Mr. Dough alone". But that leads to shortfalls, which leads to no highways, and by GOD you will have them. That leads irrevocably to force and robbery, which are of course complexities in that they are conceptually disguised and called "taxation" and justified as "one's fair share". I now want to spit obscenities for where all this leads my mind. And so it goes, issue upon issue arises where people want that to which they have no ability to obtain on their own or even in voluntary cooperation with others. But by GOD they will have them, and so they confound and pervert the good with the evil that is their avarice and the will to engage in whatever steps are deemed necessary to get what they want. Everyone knows this is evil, which is precisely why they contort words, turning murder into love-making. It is classic 1984 tactics that have been used for thousands of years since Empire arose out of the lowest and most rank muck of the mind of someone who by all rights should have been eaten by a wild predator when still a child for the sake of humanity's better fate. F.A.I.L. has gotten the better of us, and has become so deeply normalized that most people are now incapable of seeing it in their own most basic perceptive assumptions. They don't see taxation as robbery, because the tired and clapped-out "fair share" and "roads" assumptions are so deeply entrenched in their psyches that they are incapable of realizing that these are not absolute, universal truths applicable in even the farthest observable galaxies. Therefore, it is a literal impossibility for such people to see beyond the superficial conflicts of interest between individuals on such matter, which leads to "complexity" in their minds. They cannot - WILL not - accept an alternative viewpoint on what for them are basic truths of the universe, and are thereby hamstrung by the prison their own minds have erected for them and the world becomes complex.

    Are you certain of this? I suppose it turns on the meaning of "interjection", but my recollection of the rulings suggested with some vigor that police are in no way obliged to intercede on the behalf of one in distress. The only obligation they hold is to maintain the general peace. Therefore, they can walk right by a rape in progress and fear no unpleasant consequence from the judicial branch.

    I see how this is a problem for some - many even - but consider what it is many of us are attempting to do here. We are trying to find a path toward the reestablishment of human freedom on a planet that has become a huge prison. The enormity of this task, were it realized in its fullness, would likely drive people into their living rooms to break out the beer and cocaine and just say "fuck it". This regression to freedom, which was man's original natural state, is so radical that we cannot hope to accomplish it in any meaningful way without first establishing and understanding the philosophical basis for such a quantum shift in the way people live. We are here essentially reinventing that basis, and doing so (at least in my case) with the understanding that words matter and are devilishly tricky. In order to assemble a clear, complete, and correct philosophical "platform" upon which to base one's material efforts, precision becomes paramount and that usually requires a lot of words in order that all bases are covered sufficiently that those who play word games are put before the tallest and most unscalable barriers imaginable. Without precision in every detail covering the basic structural elements of a philosophy for freedom, especially in a world of carpet-bagger filth, the door is left ajar for those very people to ply their deceit. Just look at the hopelessly weak Constitution. It's very structure all but guaranteed the outcome to which we have been treated. It may be "small and elegant", but it is also hopelessly vague in critical areas such that even to this day "scholars" argue the precise meanings of this passage or that. Granted, there is only so much the written word can accomplish, the rest being up to us. But if we are to take up the reins we dropped so long ago, we must understand what it means to be a governor, and that means understanding well the basic philosophical underpinnings of the nation. Without that, there is far less to stop yet another generation of filthy hippies and other useful idiot stooges to come and begin sowing the seeds of doubt in the minds of strong people. We have gone so wrong in so many ways that it makes my head hurt when the torrent-vision overwhelms my waking mind with its reality. We do need to be "government", even if we are an anarchy... especially so. We need the attitude of a governor of ourselves, as well as that of sentinel and guardian of the rights of all men. But we also must have understanding of that which we are defending, and that requires fools such as myself get all wordy about things, such that all bases are covered and precise. I wish it were otherwise - I would have to type a whole lot less - but alas, I see no way around it, save to leave too much unspecified with insufficient clarity and detail so that evil men would be able to bend words to false meanings. Does that make sense? Have I been too wordy, even here? Seriously.

    OK, that's pretty good, but I must reiterate a point - not to be downer, but to be certain we are all aware of that against which we seek to move: a mindset that wants wants wants without having to work. Why do so many people want to have Bernie Sanders' babies? Because he is telling them what they want to hear. They want it all to happen on someone else's back so they can be there to reap the benefits. We are talking about a nation dangerously infested with lazy, avaricious people who have no knowledge of the basics of proper human relations, no interest in such knowledge when it conflicts with their wants or requires work to obtain, and have no moral compunction so see their desires fulfilled through the application of force against those who have that which they desire to obtain without work. I believe the truth of this is far worse than most people realize, even in these forums. We are talking about a huge, brutishly inarticulate mob driven by unvarnished avarice, unabashed lassitude, and unwavering hatred of anything that calls them to account for themselves. Such people would watch you killed through the agency of their paid tax goons and say you deserved it. Why? Because the superior man is, in their eyes, intolerable as he is the constant sore reminder of the average man's low character, inferior attitude, and his resultant lack of ability for anything worthy of valid praise. The superior man constantly spotlights the reasons the inferior man should loathe himself. That reminder sears his weak and over-inflated buffoon's ego, prompting him to seek and accept as valid the flimsiest pretexts upon which their nemeses are sent to burn in the flesh through the agency of third party hands. How does one compete with the likes of a Sanders or a Clinton who preach free unicorn-poo for everyone while promising death to the wealthy? They are reinforcing the base instincts that draw them inexorably in the direction of "free shit", playing upon envy, while redirecting and projecting what should be shame for one's own miserable inadequacies and translating it into blind, red-raging hatred. The question of competition is the one that needs to be answered - not how to compete, initially, but rather whether you can. I am no longer certain it is possible. Be that the case, any attempts to win such people to your cause is likely to prove fruitless, leaving you to ask whether there are enough "superior" men remaining such that one could realistically make an attempt to keep this vessel we call "America" afloat. The task is enormously difficult because you have damned near everything against you, including the majority who would see you burned alive as soon as tell you to screw off. Keep that in mind.

    My question in all this is what will you contrive that stands some chance to have an actual, palpable effect? Look at Black Lives Matter. Someone vomited forth this idiot hashtag from their shriveled intellect and it caught. Now, countless dullards of all manner of denominations are on board this derailed freight train to hell, marching, whining, threatening, demanding, twittering, mastur... oh never mind. The point is that all high-minded philosophizing aside, a simple, clear thing is what is needed. Something that will cause people to act. Something that will catch people's imaginations. This is a tall order because you do not have stupidity on your side, which makes things tons easier in a culture now and apparently hopelessly addicted to idiocy of almost any form. Is there anything sane, rational, and decent that would bring people together to make themselves heard and felt to the end of furthering the cause of human freedom? That is the question you need to answer.

    This is actually the seed for a great idea. Since so many black folk seem to think whitey is the reason they are dying in droves, remove all crackers from Flint and see what results. That is to say, when the murder rate goes up, how will this be spun into "whitey's fault"? I would like to see some truly clever black creativity come to the fore on this one. Just how far out there are they willing to go?

    She surely did. Eleven grand children. But the really weird thing was the way everyone turned out. These are some of the best-adjusted, most impossibly decent human beings you would ever meet. It is almost unnatural how they treat each other. In the 52 years I knew my sister and the 42 years she lived with her children, I have never once seen or heard a harsh deed or word pass between them. And this was no case of crap happening behind closed doors. I'm sure they have had their disagreements, but they deal with them in ways so off the average path that I'd almost be someone could wrangle a valid PhD out of studying them. I actually never felt that comfortable around them because I am a rotten bastard and all that goodness just makes me dizzy. I love them all, but their world is very far from mine.

    Not sure. My sister, a very quiet but devoted walker of the Christian talk (though not at all an evangelizing type) was liberal-leaning, but not quite in the way most would think. Liberal-leaning Christian seems almost an oxymoron, yet there she was, very accepting of everyone. She was very much against things like abortion, but not sure she would have been on board with criminalization. I honestly don't know. She would have been all over the gay-marriage thing in favor. Very odd mix, but very open to reason. We had several discussions on topics such as 2A, taxation, and so forth and she always listened and admitted when my points or questions raised were valid. She was an idealist, but not so married to her fantasies that she would not let reality in. When she died, something like 1000 people showed up to the service. That tells you something right there. I'd be lucky if the guy charged with lighting the pyre showed up.

    And here we see the great potential dangers posed by mixing truth with lies. Anyone thinking that there is not threat here is being dangerously naïve. It may be a propaganda piece, or it may be a heartfelt warning given by someone who wishes to see his home, family, and everything for which he cares to remain. Sure, we can look at it cynically and say that it comes from a man who doesn't want killed his goose that lays his golden eggs. That changes nothing, for it is still about property rights at its root. Is it a "propaganda" piece? Perhaps, but it is wise to bear in mind that even the worst propaganda, if it is to have any meaningful effect, has at its core a truth that serves as the basis for that effect. The key, then, is to find the truth in it, cleave to it, and disregard the rest. Here the truth is that Muslims are warrior people and those "at the top", their leadership, are Wahhabis. Translation: they are not your friends and have no respect for human rights. If allowed, they will impose an iron-fisted regime upon you that will leave you pining for the days of the Soviet Union and their gulags. Some will object to this, making the boilerplate claim that the people running wildly about in the middle east lopping the heads off people by the thousands are just a "few extremists". Such people need to take a trip to Saudi for Wednesday judgments where people's heads are removed, as well as hands and feet. That is Wahhabism and unless you get your head out of your sphincter, it will be coming to your home town in your lifetime. Perspective is indeed hugely important, and the key to having a good perspective is practicing the art and science of getting one. Trump may be a NYC loud-mouth. He may make a shitty president, just like all the others would. His meter in reading the little snake story may not be quite "on", and heaven knows Opal is right in thanking heaven he did not sing it. But when all that noise is stripped away, what remains is the core truth: Islam as an institution poses and clear and existential danger to nearly every human being on the planet.

    Firstly, I am of mixed-mind on the use of "War On" terminology. On the one hand, I immediately ask, "have we not yet had enough of warspeak?" Why is it that in the past 50 years at least, that America is seemingly incapable of or otherwise unwilling to stop viewing every damned issue that arises as necessitating a "war"? War on drugs, poverty, racism, hatred... I'm sick of it. On the other hand, MereCogs being what they tend to be, which is to say wholly polluted by F.A.I.L., are perhaps best approached by this brand of simplistic hyperbole with which they are familiar, and therefore comfortable. Let us face it, we are attempting to put a battleship into right full rudder at flank speed, said rudders having no power assist, the turning needing the help of an otherwise worthless crew of corrupt stooges. Reduced by how much? Why not tax-free zones?
