    I’d like to see the national debate shift from between Republicans and Democrats over how intrusive and expensive government should be to between the Libertarian and Constitution Parties over how small, cheap and laissez-faire government should be, by what schedule the State is reduced, those sorts of things.

    At present, with the current DNC versus RNC “debate,” anyone who proposes genuine reduction in the State is laughed out as a kook. For example, Ron Paul, Gary Johnson.

    From the article:

    “The central question in Zubik v. Burwell is whether President Obama’s signature health care law, the Affordable Care Act, improperly forces religious nonprofits — everything from nursing homes to universities — to compromise their beliefs by requiring them to take part in a process that requires employee health insurance to pay for contraceptives.”

    The Obama / Pelosi / Reid / Boehner / McConnell / Roberts federalized version of Massachusetts Romneycare forces lots of people to do lots of things and jacks costs up in the process. So much for “Affordable Care.”

Vote Dumpster Fire 2016

Filed under: Fun, Humor, Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:16 PM (21:16)

Can there be any doubt that Dumpster Fire is head-and-shoulders above the other candidates in this election season

Do Hillary Trump and Donald Clinton have any hope of besting Dumpster Fire in any debate? We think not — that’s why the Commission won’t let Dumpster Fire participate in the upcoming debates.

Wouldn’t you like to see Dumpster Fire on the debate stage?

We can say for certain —

  • Dumpster Fire will NOT raise your taxes, increase public spending, ban your guns, intrude into your bedroom or regulate your business affairs.
  • Dumpster Fire will NOT send your children, spouses or siblings overseas to fight other peoples’ wars or to further the American Empire.
  • Dumpster Fire will NOT attempt to interfere in how Americans better themselves on their own.
  • Dumpster Fire does not seek to make you a criminal simply because of what you smoke, drink, or otherwise intoxicate yourself with.
  • Nor does Dumpster Fire seek to take your property to build a monument or national park, or to hand it off to some big donor for private profit.
  • Dumpster Fire has no desire to bail out financially insolvent corporations who say that they’re “too big to fail.” Nor will Dumpster Fire seek to subsidize corporations who make donations over their competition, nor to regulate those competitors out of existence.
  • Dumpster Fire will NOT bow to special interests to shut down politically incorrect industries.

Donations are cheerfully accepted from all entities, individual and corporate, behind most strip mall shopping centers in America. Preferred forms are paper, wood, plastic, rubber, styrofoam and flammable liquids. Donated Federal Reserve Notes will be rendered unusable as a result of being donated.

If you want to help the Dumpster Fire campaign, use these tags on Facebook, Twiiter and anywhere else hashtags will work:

#feelthefire #dumpsterfire2016 #votedumpsterfire

    Per U.S. v. Miller, the only weapons protected by the Second are “militia weapons” that have “military utility” such as the M9, M11, M-16, M-4, M-203, M-240 and M-249, the AK-47, Steyr AUG, H&K MP-5, G-3, HK-33, etc., etc. — the weapons that are in actual military usage. Maybe the troops who have been using these weapons for years might have some idea as to what is and isn’t useful?

    What’s pathetic is that the hoplophobes and victim disarmers complain about “weapons of war on the streets.” Don’t they read the case law that they claim supports their case?

    The GOP will continue going “left” as long as Americans continue to vote for GOP candidates, regardless of how similar those GOP candidates’ behavior and advocated policies are to those of the Democrats’ that they “oppose,” just because those GOP candidates have the Magic Big R after their names.

    I suspect that this will continue until (and quite possibly after) this becomes a common sight on American streets:

    Anarchy doesn’t mean “no rules,” it means “no rulers,” as in the absence of a permanent ruling class over everybody else.

    Can someone (anyone?) please quantify “Hemp’s vibration” ? What frequency? What wavelength(s) ?

    The 200M number (actually 270 million) is the official line from the F-Troop. I’ve heard from others that the real number is three times that (~ 810 million).

    This of course presumes (probably erroneously) that when the Founders put that bit into Article I of the U.S. Constitution about “Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings,” they were actually referring to seventy percent of the total land area west of the Mississippi.

    [snort] So much for “he’s gone from OAI.” If Gary or OAI want to see a penny from me, they need to dump TM for real. That means we don’t see TM at any of the LPNM’s events, for starters. Until then, I’m fine with supporting John McAfee and Darryl Perry.

    This is an attempt to get Libertarians into the GOP to support T.rump.

    That, and the writing style seems a bit familiar.

    Just removed a posting here from “Bernalillo County Libertarians for Donald Trump,” which was nothing more than a cheesy attempt to divert some of us to the GOP. I also blocked “Bernalillo County Libertarians for Donald Trump” from posting again here.

    I don’t know that anyone from the LPNM has been able to make direct contact with Gary since Election Night 2012 other than paying for a ticket to an OAI event. (Election Night 2012 was when I basically ambushed him as he walked in the door of the party at Hotel Albuquerque and asked him to form a gubernatorial *exploratory committee* for 2014.)

    “MCP” ?

    What really pisses me off is when I go to the “10 Items or Less” lane and the person in front of me has 15-20 items.

Notes from Life, Etc.

  1. I definitely need to upgrade to a better phone — one with a micro-SD slot, at the very least. All I have installed on this one is Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Tinder and a scientific calculator app, yet when I try to install an app (App.net, for example), I get error messages about “insufficient storage.”

    That, and I’m paying ∅60 per month for “4G LTE” speed (why not just call it “5G” ?!), yet I haven’t seen anything faster than 3G.
