    I disagree. The sort of behavior to which you refer is a violation of another's space, so to speak. There are limits of tolerance for such trespass. This has nothing to do with butthurt, but with the (negative) right to be left alone. Invade my space, go to the ER. Let us bear in mind that much of this depends on what is being said, how, and the manner of physicality accompanying the speech. Let us also consider defamation. "Your mother was a whore in Tijuana", "You're a fucking *****", and such expressions are not free speech when they are making untrue assertions peddled as truth. That is why such speech can be answered in courts of equity, so the losses are very real and I believe that such "assailants" take risks when they behave so atrociously. Consider chronic harassment. How much is someone obliged to tolerate, especially when "law" fails? It's a complicated issue, to be certain. I will not say that all speech is protected from violent physicality. By no means.

    Cannot say I care for the author's style, but he did well enough to up to the point he asked who are the libertarians. At that point things went largely into the toilet.

    True enough, but in this case simplistic. Possibly true... But that speaks nothing to the notion of culpability. This path paints us as the devils; it underscores and sets to glaring light OUR criminality - YOURS, MINE, everyone here at RPF, and so on down the list of every single human being walking and breathing in America. This is government OF the people, BY the people, and FOR the people. The direct implication here is that every one of us who did nothing to get himself put into a prison pursuant to stopping Themme prior to moving our troops shares in the culpability for this disaster. Or are we going to claim innocence on the basis that we are not a free people? I don't think there is any way to escape the assessment of "fuck heads", but what do I know? As far as I am concerned, we are all guilty as sin - we wanted someone else to take care of our freedoms and prosperity, etc., seeking to busy ourselves with the pursuit of blowjobs and agonizing over what color the new fucking BMW is going to be. On the whole, we are a raft of rank corruption, wanting something for nothing. Look where it's all gotten us: right here in a corner where one day we are going to have to make the existential decision of whether we are to capitulate to the predators that have been in our midst since the first days of the republic. Had we been proper freemen, we likely would never had ended up in our currently very tight corner.

    Most certainly we can, but have we no culpability for the shit we leave behind? We are either a moral people or we are shit. I don't think there is anything in between... not in these situations. We are all responsible for what has happened there. Theye acted and we did nothing to stop them, other than bitching about it in places like RPF, which counts for little at best. So you tell me if just walking away is right, after having marched in uninvited, killing however many tens or hundreds of thousands of civilians, wrecking the place, and sending tens of thousands of our own home missing body parts, not to mention the thousands returning home in coffins, and trillions of dollars pissed down a rat-hole. Or do you think none of this is in any part your fault, or mine?

    What a load of shit. This is window dressing. Put it this way: how, pray tell, is this going to stop feds or whomever from using the devices to collect data? Bear in mind it matters no whit whether the "evidence" is admissible in a court because Theye no longer need courts and procedure and due process in order to apprehend and treat those whom they wish silenced or otherwise processed. None of the activities in question are about justice or safety: they are purely about power and nothing else. Therefore, it matters no whit whether there is a state law banning the use so long as those making such use remain untouchable. Yeah, can you picture the state of NH putting their own cops behind bars? Not on your life. How about tossing FBI or NSA... perhaps even CIA into state prison cells for violating the law? Not. Going.

    Depends on the definition of "mission". We are in a mess in a thousand ways. Our shyte foreign policy got us into this mess and we dragged the Eye-rackee people into it. Walking away is not right. Staying kills us. Mr. Rock, meet Mr. Hardplace. We made this bed. Let us now lie in it. We deserve this because we did nothing to stop it.

    Many will not know this one. Danny Gatton was one of the greats. He could wring sounds out of a guitar that few others could manage. Sadly, he shot himself in his barn in 1992 or thereabouts. His suicide had a lasting effect on me similar to that of Ian Curtiss in 1980. I just cannot grok why anyone with that kind of talent and skill would do such a thing. I can see why a no-account such as myself would - I have no talent of which to speak, but people like Gatton and Curtiss were able to do things I never could, no matter how much I may have wanted it. I understand being depressed... but I also understand how to get out of it, even when one doesn't want to. Go teach kids how to play. Find the talent and encourage it. I'm going on. So sorry. Here is an example of Danny Gatton's great. Here, he's on with Robert Gordon

    Are there really only three defenders of liberty in American political positions? Are there no other congress critters worthy of the appellation? Just curious.

    Not only was she a way-fetching lass back when, she still looks great at 100. And that name... "Olivia". Absolutely beautiful. There was a little Olivia in the building next to ours ca. '83 in Astoria. She was 2 and I would have taken her as my own in a heartbeat. Probably has her own Olivia by now. Bless her heart.

I find it amazing to consider just how hopelessly corrupt a land we are, and have been for so very long a time when I read things like this. To think not only that some people would dare usurp the authority to remove those which are the most obvious prerogatives of free men, but also that we as a people would
