Quote of the Day for Thursday, 10 January 2019

Filed under: Principles, Quote of the Day — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 7:53 PM (19:53)

ANARCHY, n. The worst fear of every politician. A nightmare situation in which institutionalized violence, coercion, and extortion are replaced by free association, voluntary cooperation, and mutual aid. Fortunately, governments the world over maintain secret police, informers, provocateurs, prisons, execution chambers, and herds of obedient men armed with weapons of mass destruction to guard against this dreadful possibility.

“The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the government.”

Who Doesn’t Want to Pay Twice as Much for Car Insurance?!

Filed under: Economics, Politics — mikewb1971 @ 6:20 PM (18:20)

Here’s a gem from this year’s list of pre-filed bills for New Mexico’s 60-day kabuki show State Legislature

HB 112 DOUBLE VEHICLE INSURANCE MINIMUM COVERAGE

Basically, Representative David M. Gallegos (R-61, Lea County) seems to be of the opinion that auto insurance policies simply don’t offer sufficient coverage. If the insurance companies won’t increase their minimum coverage on their own, then they simply must be made to do via the Iron Fist of the State. For example, the first part of HB 112 —

SECTION 1. Section 66-5-208 NMSA 1978 (being Laws 1978, Chapter 35, Section 282, as amended) is amended to read:

“66-5-208. EVIDENCE OF FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY – AMOUNTS AND CONDITIONS. – “Evidence of financial responsibility”, as used in the Mandatory Financial Responsibility Act, means evidence of the ability to respond in damages for liability, on account of accidents occurring subsequent to the effective date of the evidence, arising out of the ownership, maintenance or use of a vehicle of a type subject to registration under the laws of New Mexico, in the following amounts:

  1. [twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000)] fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) because of bodily injury to or death of one person in any one accident;
  2. subject to this limit for one person, [fifty thousand dollars ($50,000)] one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) because of bodily injury to or death of two or more persons in any one accident;
  3. [ten thousand dollars ($10,000)] twenty thousand dollars ($20,000) because of injury to or destruction of property of others in any one accident; and
  4. if evidence is in the form of a surety bond or a cash deposit, the total amount shall be [sixty thousand dollars ($60,000)] one hundred twenty thousand dollars ($120,000).”

Now I’m sure that the insurance companies will simply increase the minimum coverage limits to comply with HB 112 without raising premiums for the covered, right?

Of course they won’t — they will probably seek to double the premiums that they charge to the covered as soon as possible after HB 112 is added to NMSA 66-5-208.

It’s what businesses do when the regulatory state requires that they “put out” more — they pass on the cost increase(s) to their customers in the form of increased prices.

“The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the government.”
Publius Cornelius Tacitus, Annals, Book III, 27

Of course, there’s what could be the flip side of this little bit of cronyist mercantilism.

This could be a put-up job by the insurance companies themselves. Simply put, they could be figuring that since most of the population needs motor vehicles to get around in New Mexico (try using Uber or Lyft outside the urban areas!), they have that population over a financial barrel.

Basically, we need their services to get by, so they can charge what they want and otherwise play games with We the Drivers.

How much did the insurance companies lobby against the “individual mandate” part of Obama’s copy-and-paste job from Massachusetts Romneycare?

[YES, I’m saying that “Mandatory Financial Responsibility Act” should be repealed in its entirety, as it disincentivizes the insurance companies from competing via pricing. I was T-boned by an uninsured driver in April, 2003 — my car was totalled, the other vehicle barely damaged, and all that the responding APD officer did was had the trainee who was riding shotgun with him remove the license plate from the other vehicle. “Tough cookies, Mr. Blessing.”]

Either way, we expect New Mexico Democrats to be advocates for and devotees to the ever-expansive State, enthusiastic about Big Government sticking its fingers, nose and other appendages into our wallets, homes, businesses, among other places.

We expect New Mexico Democrats to cheer on the further infringements of our lives, liberties, properties, and pursuits of happiness in the names of Collectivism and Lefty-Fascism.

We expect New Mexico Democrats to use such anti-Liberty schemes to feather their own nests and the nests of their families and friends, their beneficiaries and sponsors.

But Mr. Gallegos is a Republican.

Don’t Republicans campaign as wanting to get government out of our lives, businesses and properties?

Aren’t Republicans the ones who tell us, “Put us in public office if you want Constitutional government, free-market economics, and individual rights” ?

Don’t Republicans tell us that they’re the ones to root out the corruption in and around the public sector?

So WHY exactly is this particular Republican furthering the State’s intrusiveness into the private sector, and possibly expanding the corruption of New Mexico?

Overkill — Last Man Standing

Filed under: entertainment, Listening, Viewing — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:57 PM (18:57)

[Verse 1]
They’re lining up in columns
They’re lining up in pairs
They’re lining up around the globe
They line up everywhere
Without reservation
Without cause to care
Fuck the complication
Last man standing
Heard the blowing siren
Heard boots upon the ground
Heard the brave in unison
Hear their engines pound
As God will be our witness
And evil is commanding
Fuck the abdication
Last man standing

[Chorus]
Last man standing, last to fall
Last man rise to take it all
Last define the best of what we do
Last man standing, last to fall
Last man rise to take it all
Last man in to tighten up the screw
Get in the mix and fight
Fight

[Verse 2]
The fever turned to anger
The anger turned to hate
The hate became the reason
In the hands of fate
Without reservation
Pause to dedicate
All our admiration
Last man standing
Stronger by the dozen
Stronger by the score
Stronger by the thousands
With a cry of war
As God will be our witness
And loyalty demanding
Fuck obliteration
Last man standing

[Chorus]
Last man standing, last to fall
Last to rise and take it all
Last define the best of what we do
Last man standing, last to fall
Last to rise and take it all
Last man in to tighten up the screw
Get in the mix and fight
Fight

[Bridge]
All our footsteps have taken us here
To the place that we all can call home
And all of our hearts sing together in what we bring
All in a place we call home

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus/Outro]
Last man standing, last to fall
Last to rise and take it all
Last define the best of what we do
Last man standing, last to fall
Last to rise and take it all
Last man in to tighten up the screw
Get in the mix and …
Get in the mix and …
Get in the mix and fight
Fight
Fight
Fight
Fight

Why Carry a Gun?

Filed under: Self-Defense — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:00 PM (17:00)

Why Carry a Gun?

Author Unknown

My old Grandpa said to me, ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take a whoopin’.’

I don’t carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry; I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Police protection is an oxymoron: Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take a whoopin’!

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

PLEASE DON’T THINK FOR A MOMENT, THAT THIS COULDN’T HAPPEN IN OUR COUNTRY ALSO !

⋅ In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control:

· From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

In 1911, Turkey established gun control:

⋅ From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

Germany established gun control in 1938:

From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

China established gun control in 1935:

From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

Guatemala established gun control in 1964:

⋅ From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

Uganda established gun control in 1970:

⋅ From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

———————–

———————–

56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control.[1]

———————–

You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

With guns, we are ‘citizens’; without them, we are ‘subjects’.

During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.

The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.

⋅ SWITZERLAND ISSUES A GUN TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD! SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.

⋅ SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

⋅ IT’S A NO BRAINER! DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

I’m a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward this. If you’re not a believer, please reconsider the true facts. This is history; not what’s being shown on TV, sanctioned by our illustrious delusional leaders in Washington.

H/T Joseph L. Roberts

Paul Krugman, Instructor on Masterclass

Filed under: Economics, Humor, Politics — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:52 PM (15:52)

Scrolling through my “News Feed” on Cuckerbergbook, I recently came across this little gem —

<sarc>
Yes, YOU TOO can add to your economics edumication for the low, one-time price of 180!
</sarc>

But seriously, folks, why not simply cut to the chase on this?

<sarc>If we’re going to live the Krugman way, why not go all-out?

Let’s have our friends in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy (and their foreign counterparts around the world) light off all of their special toys? You know, the ones that give us results like this —

That way, we can all cash in and get rich!</sarc>
