Mencken again

Thought for the Daze

Morality is doing what’s right regardless of what you’re told.
Obedience is doing what you’re told regardless of what is right.

- H.L. Mencken

XXXX In my eyes he's [Johnson] the only logical choice. Just my opinion

Brian Wilson Jake Nelson "In my eyes he's the only logical choice." Actually - if you dare argue "logic" - the answer is unequivocally "don't vote at all". If you maintain you are for Libertarian "self government", then voting for a " ruler" with the power to inflict the immoral Force of Government upon you is either terminally stupid or remarkably hypocritical - but it is no way "logical". Irrespective of that, I most certainly support your right to your opinion - as untenable as it may be.

XXXX I'm not an anarchist. I simply believe that the governments only job is to protect our rights outlined in the constitution. Any step in that direction would be amazing. It would be much better than them taking our rights!!!

Brian Wilson As recorded history has proven, It is virtually impossible for Govt to do the job you want. Acton nailed it: "Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely." Govt is nothing but the organized exercise of power. Power requires Force. While the use of Force in defense of inalienable rights may be admirable, it has never even been achieved with any permanence due to the toxic corrosion from the monopoly on Force thru Power given to Government. The quaint notion that any individual can do this thru the imagined magic of elected office is beyond "hypocrisy"; it is simply not possible. You might want to give Anarchism an thorough and objective examination. You may be surprised to find precisely what you want - in an entirely different form.

Thought for the Days

The persistent existence of Liberals is due to their immunity to any infection of intelligence that will cure their Aggressive Ignorance. When faced with irrefutable facts, Liberals cling to their indefensible opinions the same way they ridicule Conservatives “clinging to their guns and Bibles”. The significant difference being Conservatives are principally motivated to defend their inalienable right to Life, Liberty and Happiness. In contrast, the Liberals’ minds are in permanent lockdown, thoroughly resistant to any reasoned enlightenment that threatens their oppressive worldview of entitlement to authority and power over others into subservience through unbridled, aggressive force.

Free Movie

Clinton Cash, a feature documentary based on the Peter Schweizer book, has been posted to YouTube for all to view free just in time for the DNC. Clinton Cash investigates how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being “dead broke” after leaving the White House to amassing a net worth of over $150 million, with over $2 billion in donations to their foundation. This wealth was accumulated during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State through lucrative speaking fees and contracts paid for by foreign companies and Clinton Foundation donors.

The New York Times hailed the book as “The most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle" while MSNBC described the documentary as devastating for the Hillary campaign.

The Clinton camp has, of course, dismissed the documentary as a right-wing smear campaign filled with unsubstantiated conspiracy theories. That said, perhaps the most shocking aspect of the release is that many of the biggest bombshells revealed in the documentary have been vetted and confirmed by various mainstream media outlets. More recently, some information uncovered in the Panama Papers has echoed some of Schweitzer’s allegations in the movie and book.

The Doctor is In

The diagnosis is complete: the I’s have it.

Laboratory results:

America’s metastasizing societal insolvency is being led via the generational infection of the “Four I’s”: Igorance, Incompetence, Indiffernce and Indulgence evidenced by the following symptomatic warning signs:

Ignorance – The perfected result of the deliberate dumbing down of America, courtesy of the permanent parasitical partnership between Government Training Camps (public schools) and socialized Teachers Unions “where destruction of the Individual and construction of the Lemming is Job One!” Critical Thinking, Logical Reasoning and Objective Analysis not permitted; “social justice”, liberal media bias, “compensatory inequality”, “anti-social tolerance” and “Political Correctness” is practiced, corrosive and mandatory. Experts also refer to this as the new “non-invasive prefrontal lobotomy”.

Incompetence – The primary result of 12 years (minimum) of induced Ignorance (see above), aided and abetted by Helecopter Parenting, “Snowflake” Indulgence and “Safe Space” sheltering from “real world” realty; elevation of opinions over facts, feelings over thoughts, absent marketable skills, long on “entitlements” and imagined “rights”.

Indifference – (aka Attitudinal Apathy). Combined with Incompetence and Ignorance (above), behaivior resulting in the belief in being free of any personal responsbility or obligation not specifically self-centered. When combined with Indulgence (below), results in poor work performance, poor interpersonal conduct, confrontational communication and immunity to any occupational discipline or social limitations.

Indulgence – Absence and rejection of any moral compass; self-induced narcissism, bloated egocentrism, civil behavioral limitations based solely on personal preferences and selective application of self-defined, self-assumed “values” not reflective of anything currently recognized as “civil”.

Experts say a cure was possible, however MGI (Malignant Governmental Interference), a side effect of Cultural Malaise, eliminated hope for salvation of the majority of those infected. Future generations could only be immunized if the missing essential elements that contributed to the current epidemic are cultivated and distributed in mass quantities. Unfortunately, they say, such production can only come at the hands of those not already infected and those numbers are too small to be remotely effective.

Put more simply: We’re doomed.

Couple questions, Judge

Anyone following this site likely knows of my long-standing professional and personal friendship with FOX News Senior Judicial Analyst, Judge Andrew Napolitano. We recently enjoyed a celebratory dinner toasting 4 years of "Judging Freedom", a podcast that has appeared on this and several other web sites. Today (7/21/16), the Judge published one of his popular "Socratic" pieces in which he poses questions that have answers that are - or should be - obvious to anyone paying attention regarding the recent inaction of the FBI and DOJ to indict former SoS Hillary Clinton. According to FBI Director Comey's own testimony, there was ample evidence to do so.

First, read the Judge's piece here.

Then consider this note I wrote to my friend:

Nice piece, Judge. Couple questions.
Where is the vaunted integrity of FBI Director Comey? What possible repercussions other than getting fired would he suffer if he came forward with what he really knows? Similarly, where is the integrity of just two of the 150(alleged) FBI agents who reportedly worked this investigation and could step up with the concealed facts ? Where are the mass resignations of FBI agents you suggested would almost surely occur if Clinton wasn’t indicted – Director Comey’s among them? Where is the integrity of the “dozen members of Congress” who were privy to Clinton’s secret Libyan war plans? Who might be among that “dozen”? You wrote:

"What if Hillary Clinton has engaged in espionage and public corruption and FBI agents know that she has? What if they have evidence to prove it but they could not present anything to a grand jury because President Obama wants Clinton, and not Donald Trump, to succeed him in office?"

Just what is the obligation of an FBI agent to step forward with such evidence? Hasn't he sworn an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution? If his immediate superiors are corrupt and guilty of “blatant political interference”, does the Agent have no alternative course of action? What about the “Grand Jury of Public Opinion”? Wouldn’t a public uproar motivate Congress to act in some decisive manner?

You asked “What do we do about it”? Other than the suggestions above, where do the people go for learned guidance?
