    Good video. Ummmm....that's got nothing to do with whether the stuff that were are importing anyway regardless of the Jones act is shipped via truck or via ship. And lots of trucks on the road today are foreign built and/or foreign owned. Mmmmm.....okay. And that has what exactly to do with the Jones Act? :confused: So...you're worried that the Chinese junk being ferried from New York to Puerto Rico gets left to its own devices?

    Guess what? The actually historical reporting from 1921 proves that back when it happened there was eyewitness evidence of airplanes dropping bombs on black Tulsa. But I see you don't even want to address that. So STFU.

    https://freedomisobvious.blogspot.com/2021/06/the-truth-about-communismsocialism.html The Truth About "Communism/Socialism" On another forum, an individual was going on about so-called "anarcho-communism". I pointed out how the term was a penultimate oxymoron, with the grand emphasis on "moron". He went on the cite the common etymological root between "communal" and "communism", an error so grave that I felt I must respond. The exchange, fruitless as it may have proven, got me to thinking that a restatement of the basic problem of political philosophies such as communism may be in order, if for no other reason than to offer yet another expression of the argument against such arrangements. And so here we find ourselves. To put it very bluntly, communism is a game of felonies.

    For the record, and this is nothing new but perhaps it bears repetition, communism is a game of felonies. It plays on all the worst that is in a human being, most specifically, FAIL (Fear, Avarice, Ignorance, and Lassitude). Communism is all about the individual riding the wave of crime against his fellows. It is mob rule not unlike democracy in its ultimate practical results, but with different color grease paint on its face. Once again, communism != communal living. The two have nothing to do with each other because the latter is a descriptive term, whereas the former is proscriptive. The one is a simple observation of what is, the other a specification of what should be: positive v. normative. One sees what's happenign, the other barks orders and edicts at you. Can I make this any more clear? Do not me taken in by the superficial similarities and the tacit assumption that appearances represent the deeper truths upon which they are painted. Nor should you make the grave error of trusting the competence of those peddling these slippery terms to the world. And finally, always remember and never forget that the intentions of those who peddle these pills of conceptual poison are utterly irrelevant. Far too many of us are in the habit of miring ourselves in the arguments of a criminal's intentions, as if ostensibly good ones would somehow excuse the felon's actions. Intentions count for absolutely nothing at all, especially in such cases. Result is the only thing that matters where such issues are concerned and the unamended violation of a man's rights is always an outcome of the criminal variety, by definition.

What is the purpose of gain of function research? What is the purpose of gain of function research? What is the purpose of gain of function research? I am not asking about why the vaccine was created after the virus was released. I'm asking why did the NIH fund the creation of the virus in the first damn place. Don't move the goalpost. And don't give my that shyt about the government not wanting to indiscriminately poison people. It's not "the government" we're talking about. It's rogue elements within the government. U.S. funded government researchers purposefully injected prisoners and military servicemen in Guatemala with syphilis.

    Agreed. I will not deal with your "wall of text." This is really simple. There is such a thing as anarco communism, whether you wish to acknowledge that fact or not, and it doesn't require a state whether you wish to acknowledge that fact or not. Capitalism requires capital whether you wish to acknowledge that fact or not. Capitalism is not just having a free market. You can have a free market without capitalism. You don't have to have a central bank to have capitalism, but you do have to have usury (interest on money) to have capitalism. You can have loans with interest using cryptocurrency for example. People can decide to voluntarily hold their possessions in common or they can decide that each person will own everything and exchange them on a market. "Self-ownership" has nothing to do with the discussion. In capitalist systems some people can be slaves which means they have no self-ownership. In communist systems people can still own themselves but not own anything else. These are merely words to describe economic systems. Nothing more.

    The person that was sued was getting paid social security until he moved to Puerto Rico. He paid into the system and he should be able to withdraw from it. Ultimately SS should be privatized anyway. People should have a pot of money, like an IRA, that they can take with them wherever they move or leave to their dog if they wish.

    I am not sure if you know enough of the Bible to try to talk about what it says. Not trying to be mean, but you keep making provably false statements about what the Bible says. This is what the Bible says about "self ownership." 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. That said, anarco communism doesn't preclude self-ownership. Many of the Native American tribes owned themselves. But they collectively owned the land. On the flipside in many "capitalist" countries into the 19th century the slave class didn't even own themselves. Your argument is simply incoherent. That gets to your fallacy #2. The excuse that westerners could "own" land that was collectively owned by tribes under some "first rule of use" principle denies the self determination of societies that preferred collective ownership. But it's a double lie because when the Europeans encountered a society like the Aztecs that had property ownership, they took it. It was "right by might." And #3 is not unique to capitalism. In fact 1, 2 and 3 are not unique to capitalism. But let's go with free exchange. Trade still existed among all the Native American tribes even though most of them collectively owned the land. They treated the land the way we treat the oceans today. In fact most right leaning libertarians were against the "law of the sea treaty" (L.O.S.T.) which would have turned the collective resource of the oceans into private property.

Of course when that antifa lady was run over at the Charlottesville protest that was covered non-stop so....I dunno. Edit: NVM. I see this in your article. The man’s motive was not immediately known. According to investigators, preliminary information suggests that drugs and alcohol could have played a role. He was just drunk and high? No racism as a motive? Yeah....M.A.D.D. was so 1990s.

    Is it just me, or is Newsweek less biased that a lot of the MSM? They also published the gain of function story back in 2020. Note this story also cites a study on the effectiveness of hydroxycholoroquine. https://www.newsweek.com/how-americans-opinion-dr-anthony-fauci-has-changed-over-past-year-1596690 Don't listen to those maniacs. Everybody loves you," Jimmy Kimmel told Dr. Anthony Fauci on his ABC show May 5, shortly after mocking the Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson for criticizing colleges that mandate students get a coronavirus vaccine. Last week, singer Trisha Yearwood was so giddy over meeting Fauci she said she was tempted to have him autograph her vaccine card. Last year, actress Julia Roberts called Fauci her "personal hero." There's also a children's book set for release June 28 called Dr. Fauci: How a Boy From Brooklyn Became America's Doctor, and Disney's National Geographic is working on a presumably laudatory documentary about Fauci. More than a year into the pandemic, the list of trendsetters who have fawned over the chief medical adviser to the president goes on and on. But while Americans had mostly been on board with the praise, new polling data suggests their patience for lockdowns, social distancing and mask-wearing has worn thin, as has their confidence in Fauci, with 60 percent of Republicans, 41 percent of independents and 20 percent of Democrats saying their trust in him has decreased in the past year.

    That's your dishonest definition. You are forcing the word "state" on something that doesn't require a state to exist. The Diggers of England are considered early precursors of anarco communists.

    I'm quite familiar with the fact that the gospel reached Africa and the oldest Christian church in the world is in Ethiopia. And I don't know many Christians who aren't familiar with the story of the Ethiopian eunuch. That said "capitalism" as we now know it didn't exist on a large scale until the 16th century. You can't have anti-capitalism without capitalism. A) That's a straw man argument. I never said there was anything anti-capitalist in Scripture. But the early Christian church was not capitalist. B) It's false to say "the organization of the church and the organization of the economy are two separate things." Going all the way back to Moses there were religious laws about economics, such as the fact that Jews could not charge Jews interest. By the way, modern capitalism cannot exist without interest. That's the point. Letting money work for you. Capitalism is more than just using money as a means of exchange or having a market. While you can't have capitalism without market forces, you can have market forces without capitalism. Feudalism predated capitalism in Europe but there were markets. LOL. Jesus kicked the money changers out of the temple so clearly ^that is not true. But more importantly, the same laws of Moses that you referenced at the beginning of your post laid out how the Lord wanted commerce to be done. So from the beginning of the Old Testament church, which predated Jesus by thousands of years, the church was about the organization of the economy.

    I'm doing no such thing. You are misusing words. Communism has nothing to do with communal anything, save communal poverty and communal force of the "state" against the individual. "Communism" is jargon. The term was foisted upon the world by a raft of raving lunatics and has nothing to do with community, communes, communion, and so forth. It has everything to do with painting misleading pictures of false utopias and using the sword to force people into acting as if their stoogery was ultimate paradise. An analogous effect would be seen were I to be stabbing you though the neck repeatedly with a large knife while telling you how much I love and treasure you. The words and what people have been lead to believe they imply turn out to be diametric opposites of the accompanying reality.

    We could go down that pedantic path, but to what end? Pardon me, but that response sounds eerily similar to the brands of rationale used by the hard-left to justify their crimes against humanity. They pull that brand of thing all the time. Generally speaking, I believe people know when they are being genuine and when they are being disingenuous. Few of us fail to see the bullshit and baloney spewed by those who choose to accept absurdity for no other reason than that it gets them what they think they want. And yes, people do that sort of thing all the time, but that isn't really territorial behavior, but rather blind avarice being masqueraded as such.

    People who have had Covid and got over it are going to be this country's saving grace. It's because of them that we can stop mandatory vaccinations. It should be just because of liberty n stuff, but it'll be because about a 1/3 of the country will get no benefit from a vaccination. There is simply no scientific way of making a case to jab those folks.

    That's nice. What would you call the early Christian church? It most certainly was not capitalistic by any stretch of the imagination. Acts 4:32-35. 32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need. You certainly cannot call ^that capitalism by any stretch of the imagination. If this was a state requiring people to sell all of their possessions and keep them in common it would be classic statist communism. Instead, this was done voluntarily. No, the people weren't forced to sell their possessions and let the church distribute to who had need. They chose to do it. When Ananias and Sapphira lied to Peter and claimed they had donated all when they had only donated a portion, this is what Peter told them: Acts 5:3-5 5 Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. 2 With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet.

Or someone can with to do communal living through government force. Your "wall of text" doesn't change your dishonesty in this regard.

    You are employing a different sense of the term, and in fact "communism" has practically nothing to do with "commune" in reality. What you have outlined here is a prime example of the abuse of language, much like "For The People Act", which is in no conceivable way for the people, but rather the tyrants. Communists are pathological liars by their nature precisely because they are thieves. They want to take what is yours, preferably with your consent, but will employ force if need be. In either case, they are incentivized to lie to and bullshit those around them. In the case of voluntary handing over of the goods, Theye need a line of shit that convinces the rest to put out. "Blah blah equality blah blah blather blah..." The dumbasses and opportunist-parasites go, "OOOOOooooo... we're all EEEEEEEEEKWAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL... Sign me up!" In the case of having to use force, Theye similarly need a line of shit that enables them to rationalize and justify their felonies. And so the methods of NewSpeak come into play, and Orwell didn't invent a whit of it, but gave it a good name. Define terms to suit one's goals, even if it means mangling words and language to the detriment of all. It's all good if it gets you what you want, consequences be damned. This is what Theye do. It is ALL Theye do. Communism has a very specific meaning and it has absolutely nothing to do with "commune", "community", etc. It has everything to do with chicanery and bitter hatred or, far worse, utter indifference by one population to the rights and plights of another, and is thinly disguised as the precise opposite. Furthermore, the purported altruism of the hard-left commie is in fact one of the foulest of human obscenities of self-absorption, masquerading as compassion for one's fellow human beings. The claim of altruistic intent is a clear and infallible sign of malice and malignancy in a human being. I would prescribe the death penalty for any policital officeholder who would dare utter that word as the basis of any legislative effort. And no, I am not joking. "Altruism" is one of the most singularly spectacular lies of all human existence. It is a penultimate obscenity and should be stricken from human consciousness, as it describes an impossibility and labels it as some form of ultimate human virtue. Fie upon all who worship at that altar.

    I would tend to agree with this, but since when did "state" have anything to do with the good between men and their inherent natures? "State" is all about tyranny. The very concept of "state" is repellent to Freemen and attractive only to Weakmen.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.
