So On And So Forth

At World Net Daily, a notoriously Christian news site, they are asking the question:
Are today's baby names abandoning Bible?
Let's ask the real question: Are more Americans accepting the fact that reality is real?

The fact of the matter is that all religions are false. No amount of whining or coercion will change this. In order to ascend to the height of civilization that we have reached we had to culturally compartmentalize our religion to Sunday Morning. Some people, myself included, are now taking the next logical step and dropping religion altogether. In all aspects of their lives.

But, as some Christians are whining, without obeying God everything will descend into chaos and destruction.

Nonsense.

Because God is an invalid concept we have no alternative but to accept responsibility for our own lives and actions. We will have to see things as they are and live according to the actual requirement of human life.

And the clergy will have to find real jobs.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?

A Letter To The Mayor Of Minneapolis

Your Honor,

Since I moved into the Parker Skyview building in early November I have been subjected to overwhelming noise emitted from the adjacent apartment. I have repeatedly called the police to intervene to no practical effect. As of Christmas Eve I was notified by the watch commander at the Second Precinct that they will no longer respond to my complaints about the noise issue.

Are we now living in a state of anarchy?

Yours respectfully,

Leslie Bates

Thought For The day

If you want to predict what will be said by the democratic Party and their media prostitutes, all you have to do is take any statement by an old school Nation Socialist, cross out the word "Jew" and write in the words "Gun Owner."

That's how depraved and predictable they have become.

An Answer

During a discussion on gun control Harry Binswanger raised the following question:

If the majority wants a certain government, how is the minority going to defeat them with guns? The majority will have more guns.

That's a good and necessary question.

If all it took to construct a building was to stack stones upon each other there would be no science of architecture and no point in writing The Fountainhead.

If all it took to fight a war was to use brute force without rational input there would be no science of warfare or any such thing as a military organization.

If all factors were equal in warfare then a simple majority of combatants would win every time. But in reality all factors are never equal. Thus the purpose of military science is to identify the factors that favor one side or the other and use or negate those factors to one’s advantage.

A book that covers this process is The Myth Of The Great War by John Mosier. In this work the author explains how the Central Powers managed to avoid defeat until the American entry into the WW1 even though they were outnumbered by the Allies.

Mosier also covers the role of the active mind in warfare:

Over at Pershing's headquarters, young ex-cotton dealer turned intelligence officer, Samuel Hubbard, looked at all the available information and concluded that the Germans were going to turn south, and launch an offensive across the Chemin des Dames at the end of May. Despite the fact that the Allied intelligence estimates had been continuously wrong for the last forty-five months of the war, Hubbard's analysis was disregarded. How could the Americans, who had just arrived on the scene, be better then the French and the British, who had been doing for it for years?

Mosier, who up to this point had been cataloging the effects of the unconscious approach to war as practiced by the Allied powers, says this:

On 27 May 1918, The Germans, to the consternation and surprise of everyone except Captain Hubbard, smashed across the ridge.

In order to succeed in business one has to possess valid knowledge and use an active mind. The same in true in the practice of warfare as demonstrated by Captain Hubbard. In warfare the active mind with valid knowledge as a general rule will prevail over those who practice blind obedience.

Now I must also point out that as long as one free to communicate then one is free to persuade members of a political majority that they have made an error.

And of course not everyone who votes for a state of tyranny, particularly if they've been bribed into it, is going to put their lives on the line for it. Right?

Another Nihilist Touches A Keyboard

If there was such a work as Introduction To Kantian Epistemology the complete text could be boiled down to three words: Reality is unreal.

For example, William A. Jacobson, a professor at the Cornell University Law School, reported the following on one of his blogs:

Erik Loomis is an assistant professor of American history at the University of Rhode Island. He also blogs at “Lawyers Guns and Money” blog.

In reaction to the murders in Connecticut, Loomis tweeted that he had never been so angry except maybe for the invasion of Iraq (I guess 9/11 was chopped liver to him), and that he wanted the NRA chief’s “head on a stick”:

Now to the non-Kantian mind this constitutes a literal call for an act of murder. Having been outed as a would be murderer Loomis then attempts to rhetorically cover his backside:

Dear right-wing morons, saying you "want someone's head on a stick" is a metaphor. I know metaphor is hard for you to understand.

Dear rightwingers, to be clear, I don't want to see Wayne LaPierre dead. I want to see him in prison for the rest of his life.

Well why didn't he just say so? Would it be too clear?

Those of us who treat reality as being real learned a hard lesson back in the Twentieth Century. It was believed by many the when Hitler spoke of clearing the Jews from Europe that he was speaking metaphorically. It was when the Allied armies liberated the death camps that we discovered that Hitler was speaking literally.

To us who are not under the influence of Kant and in fact value our lives, a call for an act of murder has to be taken literally. There is simply no other morally valid option.

Having been outed as a would be murderer Loomis then backtracks and says he would settle for an act of tyranny. That he would settle for Wayne LaPierre to be imprisoned for life.

Punishing a man for an act he did not commit is unjust. Imprisoning a man for speaking the truth is tyrannical. Disarming the citizens -- who are the sovereign authority of the nation -- is treason.

To say anything more would require the extensive use of barracks language.


UPDATE 1335 CST:


A nihilist calling himself the Rude Pundit posted the following on Twitter:

First [expletive] to say the solution is for elementary school teachers to carry guns needs to get beaten to death.

In other words someone, such as myself, who suggests the obviously rational solution to irrational behavior is to be crudely murdered.

My name is Leslie Bates, I live at 1815 Central Avenue, Apartment 2313, in North East Minneapolis. I was trained by the United Sates Army to kill Marxist trash with my bare hands at the Benning School For Boys.

I routinely patronize the Diamonds Coffee Shop just down the street. Try to murder me and see what happens. If you insist on behaving like a Brownshirt, I will identify and treat you as one.

Have a nice day.


UPDATE 1530 CST:

Erik Loomis has just deleted his own Twitter account.

Poor baby. WAAAH!




Oy Vay!

After I posted an article on my blog explaining why a citizen needs to armed someone named Stephen Paul sent a very long and complete waste of text into my e-mail box via Google Plus.

In his waste of text -- I won't dignify it by calling it a rant or a keyboard dropping, nor will I quote any part of it even with the obscenities along with the racial and sexual preference slurs deleted -- he declared that I was a non-sentient animal who had no political authority as a citizen and no right to be armed.

I managed to boil down his message to the essential point in about one percent of the verbiage.

So what of it? If I am a mindless animal who is under the control of a master, why send me a message? If I'm not thinking for myself I certainly won't examine my own beliefs based on the mass of unnecessary verbiage and expletives that was transmitted.
Nor will I be impressed by his command of obscenities.

Instead of being positively impressed by this display of mental posturing I would have to come to the conclusion that Stephen Paul is an idiot.

I in turn reported his message to Google Plus as an example for hate speech.

What else could I do?

A Photo And A Question

Pamela Geller shows us how school children are protected in Israel.


Yes, that's a teacher protecting her students with a firearm.

What we have here is a solution to the problem that is simple and obvious. Except of course to those who are mentally stuck in the Kantian reality-is-unreal paradigm. But the Founders of the American Republic were not anticipating the presence of lunatics and Muslims running around and slaughtering children.

Why did they write in a right to bear arms in the Constitution?

My answer to the question is simply this: WE THE PEOPLE are the sovereign authority of the United States of America.

There are several natural consequences of the political primacy of the citizen. I'll just cover the first two here:

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

First, the citizen as the sovereign authority must be free to examine the facts for himself and communicate his conclusions to his fellow citizens. He cannot be compelled to believe a falsehood and therefore act on it.

Second, the citizen as the sovereign authority must possess the physical instrument of political authority and be prepared to use it. The ballot that is cast by the citizen, like the paper currency in common use, must be backed by a physical value.

The government must be subordinate to the sovereign authority, the citizens of the nation. And citizens must have the knowledge and the means to enforce their authority.

Contrary to what the practicing Kantians want us to believe, the first four words of the Second Amendment does not constitute a license to disarm the citizens and render them helpless in the face of a supreme state. It means that the citizens must be armed, trained, and organized to enforce their authority upon the government.

Now no rational person wants a civil war in our nation, but if the government would simply comply with the Constitution it wouldn't be necessary.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?

A Larger Problem

On Friday I posted a response on my blog to the religious ravings of former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. The link to the initial response is here.

At the time I was focused on Huckabee's commitment to theism. I missed the larger problem. This problem is simply contempt for the rights of the individual.

Life is the fundamental moral value. But to live in human mode of life does not mean mere physical existence. The human way of life requires conscious rational control of it. Freedom is the next step in the hierarchy of moral values. Because violence against men can only be stopped by force it becomes necessary to establish the institution of government to place the use of force under rational control.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
"We the People," not God, or Der Volk, et cetera, are the sovereign authority on whose behalf the government is established. With those three words the primacy of the citizen over the government is established.

The primacy of the citizen over the government required the right to speak and publish the facts and the right of the citizen to bear arms. As a result we also gained freedom from a religion being imposed on us, and a rational system of justice.

So far, so good. But from the very first day others, out of a desire for material or spiritual benefit, sought to overturn the primacy of the citizen in favor of the dominance of the state.

The desire for material benefit led to the Dred Scott decision, in which the citizens of the free states of the union were stripped of their authority to ban the practice of slavery in their own home states. This set the stage for the Civil War.

The desire for spiritual benefit (or the warm fuzzy feeling of the same) led to Prohibition. In this case the citizens were stripped of their right to decide to consume or not consume alcohol and were effectively reduced to the status of cattle under state control. Defiance and contempt for the rule of law became the order of the day and another result was the vast growth of organized crime.

But the worst was yet to come.

Combining both a desire for both material gain and spiritual dominance came the self-styled Progressives. Although there was some lining of the pockets on the part of the Progressives their primary goal was political control. Political looting was simply a means of buying the votes of the corrupted voters.1

Even before the onset of Prohibition the Progressives had gained control of the public schools and had replaced education for citizenship as the sovereign authority with John Dewey's plan for programming children to morally devalue themselves and to be drones in the Progressive collective.2

Huckabee, in calling for the return of religious indoctrination to the public schools is not advocating an valid alternative to the inherent nihilism of Progressive programming. But simply wishes to replace blind obedience to the collective with blind obedience to God.3 In doing so he has accepted the fundamental Progressive premise and is facilitating their program. He is not upholding life as a moral value but is instead taking part in the destruction of the rational way of life.

And if Huckabee is going to claim that we as humans must obey God regardless of the consequences he may as well go all the way and convert to Islam.

But then Huckabee isn't the religious conservative idiot to facilitate the goals of the Left.4

What are your questions on this block of instruction?



1. What can I say? It apparently works for them.

2. When I was a contributor to THE RESISTER we referred to the public schools as Dewey Camps.

3. Here's my rant of the year on the subject of God.

Brain Death Case Of The Day.

A conservative is being disgusting as usual:

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee attributed the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in part to restrictions on school prayer and religious materials in the classroom.

"We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools," Huckabee said on Fox News, discussing the murder spree that took the lives of 20 children and 6 adults in Newtown, CT that morning. "Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?"

Law enforcement has released few details on the alleged gunman, but Huckabee suggested that the separation of church and state may have spurred his rampage.

"[W]e've made it a place where we don't want to talk about eternity, life, what responsibility means, accountability -- that we're not just going to have be accountable to the police if they catch us, but one day we stand before, you know, a holy God in judgment," Huckabee said. "If we don't believe that, then we don't fear that."

He said those suffering from a crisis from faith should look to God in the community's response to the violence. But he added that "Maybe we ought to let [God] in on the front end and we wouldn't have to call him to show up when it's all said and done at the back end."
Where do I start?

Better yet, I'll let an ancient Greek philosopher start for me:

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

– Epicurus
In short, if there was a God, then why did this act of mass murder happen?

Why did ANY act of mass murder happen?

WHY DID THE NIGHTMARE OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, WITH NEARLY TWO HUNDRED MILLION DEAD, HAPPEN?

"Why God, did you allow all this to happen?"

In reply to these questions there is only silence.

There is no reply because there is no God.

Earlier this year I went on a long rant on the subject of God:

At no time in the fifty one years of my life have I ever come into physical or visual contact with God. I have never EVER received a message from God. No phone calls. No letters or other junk mail through the U.S. Postal Service. Not even an e-mail from god@god.god, even though he should be able to get something through the spam filter.

Nothing. At. All.

I simply have no reason to believe in the existence of God.

In the Collectivist dogma presently taught in the public schools a person had no rights because that person belonged to the collective. One could actually see a mob of looters and be seduced by the promise of real loot.

According to religious dogma you are the property of God and must obey him. You are not allowed to make moral decisions on your own. Regardless of the actual facts of reality.

But what do religious conservatives offer as a reward for obedience?

NOTHING.

Nothing. At. All.

In fact religion does not teach us anything about reality and how to live in it. Religion is pure nonsense.

That's all that I will say today.

An Icon For Altruism

While going through some old stuff after I moved into another apartment I found a hard copy of a draft of my obituary for Diana Spencer, The Princess of Wales. This was intended for publication in THE RESISTER, but the editor Sergeant First Class Steven Barry of the Third Special Forces Group, rewrote it and in doing so completely dropped the basic premise and even got her maiden name wrong.

Needless to say after this I stopped writing for THE RESISTER.


DIANA: A Wasted Life [The revision so far]

By Leslie Bates


One of the things I do for my own selfish pleasure is to take a sketchbook and a drafting pencil and draw. For the last fifteen years the second favorite subject of my work was the late Princess of Wales. So when Andrew Morton’s biography of Diana was originally published I purchased a copy. It took me four months to work up the nerve to finish the first chapter. I did not (and no rational egoist would) enjoy the spectacle of seeing a soul being crushed by a band of witch doctors. (When I first read this my thought was. “If this is how the ruling class educates their children then it’s no wonder that England is rapidly becoming a third world country.”)

To properly become an adult, a child must gain moral knowledge, to know what human life is and how to live it. What Diana received as a child was close to pure poison. Her parents sent her to a boarding school. The Church of England’s version of a Dewey Camp. Here she was pounded with the doctrines that selflessness was the moral ideal. That sacrifice and obedience were virtues. That independent judgement was evil. And that her mind was impotent to deal with material existence. Her mind thus mangled , it should have been no surprise that her life was mangled as well.

Diana became a Second Hander, someone who avoids moral judgement and is dependent on others for guidance. To avoid judgement is to suspend consciousness. It is to effectively shut down the mind and enter the mental equivalent of a state of death. It should not be a surprise that Diana would shortly become physically dead.

Diana was told that the royal family was the pinnacle of civilized existence. A rational person would have seen the royals as a useless remnant of a barbaric tradition, and that the monarch had become nothing more than ta hand puppet for the ruling party. No sane woman would condemn her children to such a fate.

During her engagement Diana discovered that her fiancee was a pragmatist who had an active sexual affair with an already married woman and who had no intention of breaking off the affair. A rational woman would have dumped the sniveling piece of hominid garbage on the spot. Diana asked her sisters for advice and was told to go through with the marriage out of duty.

[Insert paragraph on being an icon for altruism]
[Insert paragraph on third world savages]

All a rational woman had to avoid the aforementioned horrors was simply to say: “No. This is wrong. I won’t do it.” To do so requires a valid knowledge of moral standards, and for her to know that she was right to exercise moral judgement. It is not enough to know that there is an alternative to a particular course of action. One must know that the alternative is correct.

SFC Barry radically cut down the text to basically call her a drunken slut. As I said, I stopped writing for his publication.

Question Of The Day

Why does the Left openly support Islam?

Both Islam and Marxism were concocted by the uberparasites of their times, Karl the First Trustifarian and the Big Moh'. Both doctrines must deny the Right to Life -- and thus the subsidiary Rights of Liberty, Property, Free Speech, Et Cetera -- of all persons. Both ideologies must do so in order to establish and maintain the reign of terror and death, in order to control and exploit the productive population, that their parasitic adherents need to sustain their otherwise useless lives. To accept the concept of the Right to Life that underlies the society of consent is for the Marxist and the Mullah the first step in an act of suicide.

So it should be no surprise that the Left is coming out in favor of silencing the critics of Islam. They feel that the enemy of their enemy is something they can use.

Photo Of The Day


This is a mother in Israel shielding her child with her own body during a savage rocket attack.

The rockets are a copy of the BM-40 artillery rocket originally deployed by the Soviet Army. Another band of savages serving in the cause of Communism.

Why does the mainstream establishment willfully blind themselves to the truth?

The origin of the doctrine of Islam is nothing more than the expression of the depravity of a predatory savage. It is overt nihilism posturing as righteousness. Islam is nothing less than a doctrine of human annihilation.

But, say some defenders of Islam, it is a religion, we can't criticize it or even interfere in any degree in the practice.

Really?

The first thing I was taught when I entered infantry basic training at Fort Benning in the spring of 1982 was that "the maximum effective range of an excuse is zero."

Acceptance of the facts is a fundamental necessity in the combat environment. Indulgence in a fantasy gets someone needlessly killed.

Innocent people are dying because the mainstream establishment won't understand and accept a fundamental truth.

Islam is Death.

And Islam is completely outside the bounds of civilized toleration.

Totalitarian Socialism As Usual

Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner reports:

The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority (read GOP) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards.

These Inspectors are election officials - again, court appointed -- and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats) and being replaced by Democrats.

Also in Philadelphia the Black Panthers are positioned at polling places as they were in 2008.

There’s a disturbing report coming out of Philadelphia, as it’s been confirmed that New Black Panthers are, once again, outside of a polling place — the same location they stood at, batons in hand, back in 2008 (the address is 12 and Fairmount, Ward 14).

TheBlaze originally received the following image of one of one alleged Panthers outside of the station via e-mail this morning, then FOX News confirmed their presence in a subsequent report with video.


And propagandist Michael Moore and other Democrats are whining about his party not being allowed to cheat.

The Democratic Party has all of the credibility and respect for the citizens shown by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

Which is to say: NONE AT ALL.

Brownshirts In Action

From Andrew Breitbart's Big Government site:

The Racine, Wisconsin Tea Party held a get-out-the-vote rally Saturday to energize conservatives for the final stretch of the upcoming election. Organizers for the rally arrived at the event venue to find hundreds of roofing nails spread across the parking lot where attendees were to park their cars.

It remains a mystery who left the nails in the parking lot, but it is just one more assault in a chain of attacks, likely incited by the left against Wisconsin conservatives who are openly expressing their views and gathering exercise their right to speak and assemble freely.

Such actions may be a surprise to certain members of the Church of Obamatology but they should not be a surprise to anyone who has read The Ominous Parallels by Leonard Peikoff.

We must remember that the goal of Obamatology is to clear the planet of the effects of Capitalism. That is the behavior of decent and rational persons. In other words, civilization.

Islam And Altruism In Action

Real men do not commit the act of rape.

Unfortunately, this has become a significant problem with Muslim taxi drivers in the United Kingdom.

This is inexcusable. Completely inexcusable. I used to drive a taxi in Minneapolis and as far as I knew this behavior was unknown. Even with Muslim drivers

I did eject a woman from my cab once. She was being excessively rude. I brought her back to the bar where I made the pick up.

As the story points out most of the offenders have received less than a decade in prison sentences for their crimes. This is also inexcusable.

To commit the act of rape is to behave as a predatory animal. Those who choose to act as predatory animals should be identified and treated as such. The penalty for forcible and statutory rape should be nothing less than death.

But then, unlike some whim worshipping trash I used to know, I actually value life in the real world.

Atlas Shrugged Part Two

My lack of God, what a mess.

The trailer was better then the film as a whole.

Where shall I begin?

Starting with the air chase and then flashing back to the beginning was clearly a mistake. The thing is I used the same start for a screenplay that I was working on. Darn.

Taking some liberties is a necessity on an adaptation to film. Having Jeff Allen already working for the railroad worked. The following changes would have also worked:

Thompson as President of the United States. Granted, like the current occupant of the office, he doesn't deserve the title. But using the proper title would have added an element of realism.

The Winston Tunnel Accident clearly needed changes. The last steam locomotive was taken out of commercial service in 1957. A switch failure was shown as a factor in the accident. This would have been a sufficient cause for the disaster.

CGI effects are now the current standard. But the quality of such effects should be higher than those used in video games.

In bed
I was about to write a poem to cuss Him out
The poetry started to smell like him
When I stopped.
For I thought
A shitty politician like him
Does not deserve
My sweating
To write poetry about
Even though it may be to cuss Him.
Even Marx
His fucking ancestor
Never did get a few lines from me!
So why bother?
Let the hacks with their prostituted pens
Comb his beard, pat his head, caress his arse!
So I went on to other business
The hell with Him!

Oh, and read this.

Thought For The Day

I've been reading a lot of post debate commentary on a number of right wing blogs. One subject that dominates the commentary is the question of what drugs The Big Zero is using.

And before this I thought The Zero was high on ideology.

Rant Of The Day

Let's start by quoting the current occupant of the White House:

"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
Really?

If I was a Christian I would say that Mohammad was one of the false messiahs predicted in the New Testament.

But I'm not a Christian. I'm an Objectivist.

If we accept the accounts written by Mohammad's earliest followers as the truth then it is very apparent that he committed serious crimes such as robbery, murder, and other acts that are not discussed outside of a lecture on the subject of the SS-Dirlewanger Brigade.

And Mohammad did so while claiming the sanction of the Magical Mystical Master in the sky.

A claim that any rational person must reject as total nonsense.

Apparently the current occupant of the White House believes that an honest discourse on the subject of Mohammad constitutes slander.

Really?

Contrary to what the current occupant of the White House may believe he is not a monarch and my not determine what the citizens of this (or any other) nation may discuss in public. In reality the Citizens of the United States are the sovereign authority. And as such have the right to publish and speak the truth, and to read and hear the truth, in order to carry out their obligation as the sovereign authority.

Those who do have a problem with this fact, or do not understand it, have no place in public office.

In this or any other nation.

Progress Report

On my current novel.

I changed the scene breaks into chapter breaks. As a result what were three chapters are now seven chapters.

I finished chapter eight.

I'm now 138 words into chapter nine.

The system primary, the star around which everything orbited, gave off a red tinted light of variable brightness. It was the kind of light that hack writers on the mother planet who were very short on personal funds would write extremely long paragraphs on their extremely old manual typewriters in order to explain the effects of it on the landscape.

Any Questions?

THOUGHT

Islam is an crime against Humanity.

The false prophet Mohammed commands those who submit to him to murder those who don't.

Therefore killing a muslim, any muslim, regardless of their age or other condition, is not a crime. It is an act in defense of the Human Race as a whole.

Post Of The Day

My lack of an imaginary overlord! That drooling idiot is still at it!

If there is one thing I've learned from real experience in the real world is that arguing with a drooling idiot is a complete waste of time. And I'm just too old for this excrement.

So I'm going to end this nonsense by reposting a short piece I wrote on the subject of imaginary overlords:

The Truth About Penguins In The Traveller Universe. (A Repost)

UPDATE 0640 CDT:

Of course Kratman had to get in a final shot.

By the way, just so you don't misunderstand, those answers and comments above aren't really generally directed at you, barring the one or two that were obviously directed at you. You don't have much value to me. I've insulted you and enjoyed insulting you, because you're a mindless moron. Beyond that...meh. No, they're directed to Drak and BT, who do have value, and to any others that may read them, who presumptively have some value. Any time one can point out to someone worthwhile what an evil, hypocritical, nasty and Nazi bitch Ayn Rand was, and how foolish her followers are - foolish where not evil (don't sweat it; you're just self righteous and stupid, but probably not competent or effective enough to arise to the level of evil) - that's worth doing.

So run along, little one; your drool buckets need changing.

Let's see...I treat reality as being real, therefore I'm a drooling idiot?

I oppose A, therefore I am A?

Just the sort of doublethink they teach in modern education.

Kratman should just go all the way and convert to Islam.

Baen Books was the intended publisher for my first pro novel. But as long as they are publishing the keyboard droppings of Kratman I may as well summit to another publisher.

Tor Books looks like a good candidate.

Or other suggestions.

I think I'm going to leave that hornet's nest I kicked over yesterday alone. Let Kratman stew in his own juices.

I'll just keep working on that.

Quote Of The Day

While I was reading a discussion thread at Baen's Bar I ran across this keyboard dropping:

Ayn Rand was a arrogant, soulless, unethical, vicious, evil, and ultimately stupid monster.

-- LTC Tom Kratman, US Army Retired

This means that I won't bother to read any novels he wrote or make friends with this irrational walking piece of excrement.

Regardless of what one feels, THE TRUTH IS THE TRUTH. I don't worship her at her (figurative) feet. But I have found her nonfiction work to be closest to my own experience of the real world. That is why I am an Objectivist. So that when someone denounces Rand in such appalling terms, they are denouncing me.

And it's been my experience that arguing with such individuals is as practical as providing medical treatment to the dead.

Given that his novels are published by Baen Books I am now wondering if my own literary output will ever pass muster with them.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?

Update 1705 CDT:

Apparently Comrade Podpolkovnik Kratman has read my denunciation:

You're really not worth any more effort than this. Get the fuck out.

No Problem. Bye.

WHoaaa.....

Update 1912 CDT:

Comrade Podpolkovnik Kratman wrote to another member of the forum:

That's okay, BT, I categorically forbid the animate piece of dog shit from reading my books. He, like other members of the cult that goes by the name of objectivism, is just too dogmatically stupid for the lessons to take.

Well, that will relieve me of any accusations of plagiarism on the part of Comrade Kratman.

Seriously, I tried to read an opening chapter of one of his novels on the free section of the Baen site. I found it unreadable. My worst fan fiction is better than his output. (I won't insult those who scribble out their novels in crayon by suggesting that he does so himself.)

But then I never really had any interest in Neo-Nazi war porn.

Update 2100 CDT:

Oh my! He's still at it. Talk about a serious premise check failure.

Obersturmbannf├╝hrer Kratman said:

By the way, if you can't see the difference between a conservative and a communist, as your silly little comment suggests, then you really _do_ belong with Objectivism; an idiot philosophy for an idiot. It's a perfect match.

Dipshit.

Regardless of what they call themselves, a statist is a statist.

I could also say that it doesn't matter what color wig she is wearing, a whore is still a whore.

In monotheism (which according William F. Buckley, Jr. is the foundation of conservatism) man is the property of God and therefore must obey him.

But in reality God is a figment of the imagination who is spoken for by a self appointed spokesman.

In collectivism, man is the property of the the collective and must obey it.

But in reality the collective is a figment of the imagination who is spoken for by a self appointed spokesman.

So what is the difference?

Regardless of the exterior differences, a statist is still a statist. And a whore is still a whore.

I'm looking forward to seeing how deep this idiot digs himself in tomorrow.

Quote Of The Day

“The Government is the only thing we all belong to.”

-- The Democratic National Committee, 2012 AD

The notion that the person is the property of the state, and may be used as a slave or killed as a diseased animal for disobedience, is the central social premise of totalitarianism.

The fundamental value of the parasites who create and make up the membership of the totalitarian movements is power over the productive. They must have power over the people who do real thought and real labor because without it they would die. The users must exercise force on the productive of else they will die off.

Because a human right is a restraint on the power of the state, all the Rights of Man, starting with the Right to Life, must be treated as null and void.

And we all know where this is going.

All over the world, especially in Europe and Asia, there are monuments to the depravity of the totalitarians. The remains of slave labor camps and extermination centers. Our planet is dotted with the mass graves of those who would not or could not be used by the users.

Even in the United States, along the Trail Of Tears, there are the graves of those Natives whose land was stolen and given to the slave owning elites by the Democrat Andrew Jackson. The Democrats continued to support the slave owning elites and to protect the practice of slavery. Even after the Civil War they created a terrorist arm, the Ku Klux Klan, to suppress and murder former slaves.

And then there is the still unpunished crime of Democrat William Clinton.

In my mind the title of Democrat has become synonymous with the term Murderer.

The Democratic Party in the United States has in effect become a totalitarian party, and like the National Socialists and Soviet Communists they must be identified and dealt with as such.

By nothing less than complete annihilation.

Changes

I've changed the name of the blog. Somewhere in the process I've made some errors.

As part of a comment on a previous post Mark Urbin said:

Remember the petty vandalism the Clinton staffers did before G.W. Bush and his staff took over the White House? That is going to be nothing compared to what the looters in the Obama regime will do. Personally, I would have the silver inventoried Empress Michelle is allowed to leave the building.
It's not the petty looters that I'm worried about.

The fundamental value of the other side is power.

Without it they are effectively dead. Without it their purpose in life is effectively removed. Without power they are nothing.

The other side has shown their absolute contempt for our constitution and the rule of law. It appears that they will stop at nothing to obtain and retain power.

What I'm afraid of is that The Big Zero will simply refuse to step down when he loses the election. And that he will order the arrest and even the murder of those (Romney, Ryan, et al) who oppose him. It will be the American Night Of The Long Knives.

While part of the armed forces may follow their oath to defend the constitution, I would fully expect the local branches of their mafia (Democratic Party) and their enforcers (Cops) to follow orders to the letter.

This is going to be a bloody mess. And it will end with one side or the other as filling for a mass grave.

Quote Of The Day

A brownshirt in Tampa had this to say:

“The police just silence us, the Republicans just silence us. We are just getting silenced everywhere we go. It’s like no one wants to even hear what we have to say.”
What's wrong with the noise emitted by this brownshirt?

First, if the occupiers behave like a bunch of thugs, then the police will treat them like a bunch of thugs. That's what they're paid for in a capitalist nation.

Second, the occupiers really and truly have have nothing to say to anyone with a functioning mind. All the occupiers are really doing is to robotically repeat the same exact noise that tenured totalitarians have been emitting for the last century. And we are fully well aware of they have been emitting.

And while a "piled higher and deeper" degree in political science may not actually be necessary to obtain a significant rank and command in the political goon unit, along with a career of rape, robbery, and mass murder, but it does help.

Just ask this doctor of political science?

Oh... That's right... He was beaten to death in Poland after the war.

This sounds like those black helicopter stories that went around during the reign of Big Bubba.

So who's the theoretical opponent? Certainly not the inhabitants of certain "ethnic" neighborhoods who could start a riot when The Big Zero is not reelected. That would be racist.

Isn't it nice that everyone who enlists in the armed forces of the United States takes an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution?

Update

David Pryce-Jones at National Review Online on the Pussy Riot situation in the former Soviet Union:

When the Emperor Napoleon ordered the judicial execution of a harmless Duke, Talleyrand — a diplomat from the days before the lily-livered official creeps of the present — made the unforgettable crack that this was “worse than a crime, a mistake.” The Pussy Riot girls are also harmless, and Putin has made a mistake. Violence is more and more likely to overtake his intention to remain dictator until well into the next decade.

Message For Putin

Today I have a message for Soviet Leader (yes, that was deliberate) Comrade President Vladimir Putin:

When I was growing up here in Minnesota, a state of a western civilized nation, I was taught something about the practice of name calling:

"Sticks and stones may hurt my bones but names will never hurt me."

Yes, I did just engage in name calling. And no harm will ever come to you as a result, Comrade.

Except, perhaps, in your head.

Barack Obama is the Herbert Hoover of the Democratic Party.

And that may be an understatement.

Members of the "Occupy Movement" are taking over local Obama campaign headquarters and are making demands. The Brownshirts are brownshirting their own leader.

Hitler did a better job of controlling his own followers. But to do a Night of the Long Knives in the present day would mean having to drop the mask of being civilized.

Even with the continued cover-up of the present administration by the mainstream media more of us would would see The Big Zero as he really is and vote appropriately.

But that wouldn't stop some people from sticking their heads in the sand and their hindquarters in the air and willfully ignoring the facts.

Rant Of The Day

This may actually be my rant of the year.

To make a reply to this individual would be a useless gesture.

Right-wingers have long been fascinated by Ayn Rand, the mid-century pop philosopher who defined moral behavior as doing whatever will make you, the individual, happy, and opposed any government intervention in the economy or charitable giving. Based on her economic beliefs, you can understand why, for example, Rep. Paul Ryan makes each of his staff members read her most famous novel Atlas Shrugged. But shouldn't it bother some of these right-wingers that she was, to use their own language, a "radical atheist," too?

Ryan, a Catholic, was confronted on this rather obvious friction last Friday, as he was leaving notorious GOP grifter Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Conference in Washington D.C. A young man supposedly representing a religious organization concerned with promoting economic justice — just like in the old days! — caught up with Ryan as he made his way through the hallway. He introduced himself as a Catholic and began hurling questions to Ryan about why he supports the economically immoral cult of atheist Ayn Rand. He offers Ryan a Bible and suggests he pay more attention to Luke!

This comes less than a month after 75 Catholic professors sent a scolding letter to Speaker John Boehner, a Catholic, for pushing a harsh budgetary agenda which they see as violating their religious principles.

All we're trying to do is give a "heads up" to those policymakers who run their mouths about being devout Catholics while simultaneously promoting Randian economics: Get your canned responses ready, because people are starting to notice.

One cannot rationally argue with someone on a matter of faith. To do so is clearly an act of futility. One may as well attempt to practice medicine on the dead,

What I can do is to explain, to other rational people, why I cannot submit to this load of mental excrement.

Let's begin with the basics.

A IS A.

On the epistemological level this means that regardless of what someone wishes to believe that THE TRUTH IS THE TRUTH.

This means that the TRUTH cannot be changed or otherwise negated. No matter how many times a lie is repeated or how many guns are shoved into into a person’s face or even how many people are actually murdered in order to enforce a lie.

But any smug Catholic such as the one I quoted above would claim that he is only following the commands of God when he is unleashing force upon us to comply with the will of God.

Whose commands?

At no time in the fifty one years of my life have I ever come into physical or visual contact with God. I have never EVER received a message from God. No phone calls. No letters or other junk mail through the U.S. Postal Service. Not even an e-mail from god@god.god, even though he should be able to get something through the spam filter.

Nothing. At. All.

I simply have no reason to believe in the existence of God.

As a consequence I have to treat any demand that I obey God as so much nonsensical noise.

But does not stop numerous individuals from claiming to speak for God and demanding obedience to his will on his behalf. Nor does it stop these individuals from writing numerous books outlining those claims and their demands for obedience.

The issue is, again, that there is no objectively verifiable evidence for the existence of this being.

But, say the Theists, God created Heaven and the Earth, therefore he must exist and therefore we (meaning YOU) must obey him.

Really?

(I regret to say that I do not have access to my personal library and it has been some time since I have read the relevant works. My answer to the aforementioned nonsense may be the reverse of Rand’s answer to it. And I will not be able to place the correct citations in this article. Please bear with me on this.)

It is claimed by Theists that God, as his first miracle, created the Earth, and by implication the rest of the Universe, Ex Nihilo. Literally out of nothing. And that there was nothing in existence before the Universe was created by God.

Nothing at all?

Theists often claim that God was the original conscious being. But in order to be conscious one must be conscious of something.

A consciousness that is conscious of nothing is a contradiction in terms.

Therefore there must always be something in existence.1

Existence has to exist.

But some theists also claim that God is omnipotent. That he can do anything and is not limited by the laws of nature.

Really?

Existence is identity. To be is to be something in particular.

An omnipotent being is NOTHING in particular. Which is to say, it is nothing at all.

But let’s look at the practical effects of omnipotence.

An omnipotent being should not have ANY unfulfilled needs or desires. An omnipotent being should not be bored in any way. Furthermore, an omnipotent being should not any uncorrected physical or psychological flaws.

An omnipotent being should not have to create the Universe or to create Man to serve him.

If God exists, then we should not exist.

And by we I mean a physical and conscious being who carries out his own action by his own decisions.

If God, the omnipotent being exists, then Man cannot direct his own actions by his own free will. A man cannot even decide to
submit or not submit to the will of someone who claims to speak on behalf of God.2

But all of the above does not prevent theists from making their most absurd claim yet.

That each of us has an immortal soul. If we obey God then the soul will be eternally rewarded by being allowed to enter Heaven.3 And if we do not obey God then we will eternally punished by being sent to Hell.4

Never mind that there is no evidence that the mind can be separated from the body and preserved in some fashion.

Theists are not simply doing this to be sadistic.

As a class the clergy are not productive members of a society. In order to exist they need the material support of those in their domain. They also need to feel that they can continue to rely on the support their victims.

In short they need wealth and power.

The history of organized religion is the history of robbery by fraud and the murder of those who rightfully refuse to obey and materially support the self appointed speakers for God.

And if the Judeo-Christian version wasn’t bad enough, the perpetrator of Islam took the most evil aspects of Western Monotheism and turned them up to eleven.

In a novel that I’m writing I have a character who is thinking of what so say to the convert to Islam who was responsible for the murder of his wife and daughter:

But in Islam,‭ ‬those who submit to the obviously false god Allah,‭ ‬and obey the obviously false prophet Big Mo,‭ ‬and who in their supposedly holy names go out and conquer and abuse the unbelievers,‭ ‬will get to eternally rape a bunch of eternal victims as if they were a bunch of eternal animals in Allah’s eternal whorehouse.

Okay. I’m not nice.

The fundamental part of the scam of organized religion is the notion that God owns Man. That Man has no rights that those who enforce the will of God need to respect. And that those who refuse to obey God, as represented by the clergy, will not only be subjected to spiritual punishment but must also be subject to temporal punishment. The Founders of the American Republic understood that this would lead to sectarian violence and in the first article of amendment of The Constitution prohibited the enforcement of sectarian doctrines.

The smug Catholic such as the one I quoted above apparently does not understand this or does not care. What matters is the warm and fuzzy feeling that he receives from abusing the power of government to enforce the will of God.

And if some unbelievers have to die? Well that because they disobeyed God.

Speaking only for myself I fully believe that those who deny the Rights of Man cannot claim those same rights for themselves.

I cannot believe in the concept of God. I will not submit to those claim they are enforcing the will of God.

I will live my life by my own rational judgement. And I do not care how many priests and obedient followers I have to kill, how many places of worship I have to demolish, and how sacred texts that I have to burn to do it.

I will judge. And I will prepare to be judged.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?



1. Of course there will be those who will claim that the theory of the Big Bang constitutes proof of the existence of God. But there had to be something to go BANG. Therefore I must conclude that there was always something. No ifs, ands, or buts.

2. This is taken to extremes in the areas occupied by the adherents of Islam. (I won’t call them nations.) Some Muslims if they witness the commission of a felony or even a murder will not interfere or even call the police because it would interfere with the will of Allah.

3. Where the Muzak system plays syrupy sweet songs that constantly praise God and Jesus Christ. This may actually qualify as punishment. Seriously, Jennifer Knapp can write and perform spiritual songs that do not mention God or Christ at all. But Miss Knapp is also a lesbian. Nobody is perfect.

4. Where the condemned are subjected to the noise generated by Yoko Ono.

Okay. The last two points were a bit silly.

Rant Of The Day


Mike Riggs of Reason.com has the following to say about police misconduct in Saint Paul, Minnesota:

A St. Paul, Minnesota family claims in a lawsuit that police officers who conducted a wrong-door raid on their home shot their dog, and then forced their three handcuffed children to sit near the dead pet while officers ransacked the home. The lawsuit, which names Ramsey County, the Dakota County Drug Task Force, and the DEA, and asks for $30 million in civil rights violations and punitive damages after a wrong-door raid, also claims that the officers kicked the children and deprived one of them of her diabetes medication.

The child went into a diabetic seizure. If the girl had died this would be a clear case of murder.

There are basically two ways to bring this nonsense to an end:

The Totalitarian solution would be to follow the lead of Chairman Mao and arrest and summarily execute anyone anyone who was suspected of being a pusher or a user.

Just dig a few ditches and set up a few machine guns. No need to build camps with those special shower and oven facilities.

The Libertarian solution would be to stop interfering with the evolutionary process by re-legalizing the sale and use of hard drugs and letting the idiots kill themselves.

Of course that wouldn't be progressive, caring, or compassionate.

The Totalitarian solution also has the apparent virtue of allowing the Holy Total State to get rid their open critics without a constitutionally valid legal procedure.

It would not be a surprise under such circumstances to witness my former friend Doug Graen, who is now an open member of the Church of Obamatology, come forth and claim that I used Marijuana back in the late Eighties. This would be no more absurd than "her" claim that because I oppose socialist violence that I'm a totalitarian murderer.

Rant Of The Day

An African American Asshole is arrested for being an asshole:

Romayne Davis surrendered at the Broward Main Jail on a single charge of unauthorized transmission and interference with a public radio station. He disrupted the soothing sounds of classical radio station 89.7 FM with the unexpected beats of rap music, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Detectives launched an investigation after receiving a complaint from a listener of WKCP Classical South Florida. Instead of hearing the usual symphonies and sonatas, the station's airwaves were blaring with the sounds of rap music and "vulgar speech and lyrics," officials said.

Investigators found a warehouse on the 3000 block of Northwest 23rd Way in Oakland Park on July 12 where the illegal pirate radio station was broadcasting.

Let's see, someone comes home from their place of employment after doing a day of actual productive work, and turns on their radio with the reasonable expectation of listening to some real music made by real musicians who spent most of their lives leaning their real trade.

Only instead of listening to real music the victim is hit with a barrage of incoherent and obscene noise generated by one or more no-talent nihilists.

Under such circumstances one may be tempted to think, "rope, lamp post, asshole, some assembly required."

But some liberal twits will, of course, accuse one of being a racist for thinking such a thought. But then the idea that one should be able to live one's own life in accordance to one's own judgement is such an alien idea to a liberal that is may as well come from the planet Mars.

Liberal's are, after all, nothing more than a bunch of parasites themselves. Without the capacity to force their will upon us, through the police agencies, they would shrivel up and die. So in order to live at our expense they have to teach their victims to accept the state of submission, regardless of the consequences.

So it should not be a surprise that this asshole acted to emulate his liberal masters and impose his will on some radio listeners.

Now of course I wouldn't be surprised if the asshole formerly known as Doug Graen wanders in and accuses me of being a hypocrite. Pay absolutely no attention to the Glock 36 pistol and the concealed carry permit the "she" carries while openly supporting the present occupant of the White House and his agenda of disarming, subjugating, and plundering the productive people of this nation.

Is it hypocrisy when the choice to make me a dependent of the welfare state was made by my mother while I was laying unconscious on a hospital bed? And if Doug actually thought about it (Thought! What an alien concept!) "she" would see that suicide is not a solution to the ethical problem that I found myself in. It would only leave a larger mess for someone else to clean up.

Leaving the ethical hole that I'm in is not impossible. And I will do it.

But returning to the subject of this rant, I did give some thought to writing on the subject of the noise commonly known as "Rap." And I came to the conclusion at the time that it wasn't worth the effort.

I did perform some research on the subject. I found a a video, for something called "Ice, Ice, Baby," on You Tube by a soulless no-talent nobody from South Florida who adopted the trade name of "Vanilla Ice."

I listened it it for 42 seconds before shutting it off. Seriously, Yoko Ono has more talent than this moron. I would rather listen to one of her albums (from the late Sixties or early Seventies on the Apple Records label) than be further subjected to the noise generated by a rapper.

This moron starts off by literally ripping off the bass riff from the beginning of the Queen/David Bowie song "Under Pressure."

Literally.

He apparently couldn't be bothered to actually hire someone to play the bass riff. I suppose that would actually require someone with actual talent to perform the act.

And then the moron walks onto screen wearing an absurd costume and an absurd haircut.

Why?

I suppose because someone told him that the image that he projected was cool. Whereas anyone with functioning neurons in their head would laugh their ass off or shake their heads in disbelief at the image of this moron.

And then this moron opens his mouth.

This moron drones on in a monotone voice about how wonderful he is. He is followed by his entourage who also mumble about how wonderful he is.

At this point I shut off the video.

To flush away the mental residue of that talentless nothing I repeatedly played a live concert video of a band with actual talent.

These gentlemen perform with actual power and passion. They actually work at it.

And there's a reason that you way not recognize the instrument that guitarist Brian May is playing. It's because he designed and built it himself.

That takes real talent and effort.

Quote Of The Day

From Cracked.com: 7 Scientific Reasons a Zombie Outbreak Would Fail (Quickly)

But even in nice, flat, paved cities, where it would seem like people would be extra-fucked, the landscape still works in favor of the living. History has shown that in most awful situations, people don't always act like the panicky idiots in a horror movie. In cities, people would likely congregate in the upper levels of high-rise buildings, where the invasion can be held at bay with simple security doors. Also, the streets themselves would keep the undead corralled in straight, easy-to-aim-down lines where they could be picked off by snipers, or just bored office-workers waiting out the quarantine by dropping office supplies onto the undead from the top floors.
So even if I can't bring my guns to work I could still have fun.

Gosh What A Surprise

KGO-TV in San Francisco has the following story:

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The San Francisco bicyclist accused of running over and killing an elderly pedestrian was back in court today.

36-year-old Chris Bucchere is charged with felony vehicular manslaughter for allegedly running a red light last March at Castro and Market Streets.

The district attorney says Bucchere was speeding and made no attempt to stop when he struck 71-year- old Sutchi Hui. The prosecutor rejected a request by Bucchere's lawyer to exempt him from appearing personally in court.

"This is a form of a homicide. An innocent man who was crossing the street is no longer with us. The inconvenience it may cause Mr. Bucchere is irrelevant to me. He should be at every single court appearance for something so serious," San Francisco Asst. District Attorney Omid Talai said.

Talai says he has not decided what kind of punishment Bucchere should face if he is found guilty.

Why am I not surprised?

This sort of behaviour ended with the Age of Kings. Back when royalty and the the rest of the aristocratic class could do anything they wanted to the peasants.

Part of the point of creating a constitutional republic is so we can be free of such lethal abuse by those who feel themselves to be superior.

How dare that peasant act like a Republican who has an equal right to cross the street?

And why should I not be at all surprised that this would happen in San Francisco, a major center of the Leftist Aristocracy?

What can I say?

Rope, lamp post, aristocrat, some assembly required.

Brave Sir Adam bravely told a girl at a drive thru what a evil company she works for after taking his free water and posts it to youtube and is surprised at the reaction. What makes it even better he had all his personnel info on his account plus where he worked I bet his company is loving all the attention they are getting. 8) 

A self appointed superior being behaving like a self appointed superior being. So what?

What we have here is a failure of this bozoid to rationally think.

This is a moron who mindlessly follows the mindless "progressive" herd. He doesn't think for himself and he can't imagine or tolerate anyone else reaching their own conclusions on an issue.

I'm not a chicken fan so I can't participate in an counter protest by purchase action. Or enlighten this brownshirt wannabe with a baseball bat. But I can stand here and applaud the brave souls who are rubbing the faces of the Left in their own fecal matter.

CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!

Statement of Policy

For the second time someone tried to post a reply to the previous article on my Live Journal page.

This so-called reply was a link to a You Tube video. In both cases I deleted the reply without viewing the video.

Here are the house rules for replying on my blogs.

1. Use text in Standard English. English is now the world standard for international communication. If you cannot make a statement in English you may as well give up and take a suicide pill.

2. If you post a link to video it is very likely that I will not bother to watch it and I will proceed to delete it. If the video is not in English I will automatically delete the post.

3. As far as I'm concerned there is no valid argument for evil. I will not waste any time on such noise. All posts that attempt to argue in favor of a toxic ideology, such as Islam, National Socialism, Communism, or Obamatology, will be automatically deleted.

Five Responses To A Walking Piece Of Excrement

1. When one finds one's self at the bottom of a moral equivalent of a hole, then one has to climb out the hole. The process will take time, and may even take years, but it will happen. Suicide is not a valid means of resolving a moral dilemma.

2. Compliance with an actual moral code takes an entire lifetime. Errors do happen, so do corrections. This takes work, but it will be done.

3. If you are going to stab a friend in the back, do it literally.

4. Never cause an author to become angry at you.

5. You betrayed me, again. Do not expect to be forgiven this time.

Thought For The Day

In my view the members of the so-called Occupy Movement are basically a bunch of Brownshirts without a uniform, a shave and haircut, and a bath.

But some readers may object that the Occupiers aren't racists while the original Brownshirts were.

But the Occupiers are in fact a racist group, it's just that their racial hatred is directed towards Caucasians who are rational and productive.

Quote Of The Day

From Al Nofi's CIC comes:

When the Duke of Wellington attended the Congress of Vienna in 1814, the Austrian secret police noted that he was accompanied by the famed opera singer Mme. Giuseppina Grassini, “a very pleasant kind of baggage”, who had previously been a mistress of a certain Corsican who had recently removed to Elba.

Ouch! That has to hurt. From the Corsican gentleman's perspective.

There was a time when I used to respond to nonsense like this by writing several paragraphs of flames. I've learned the hard way that such responses, especially to morons, generally don't work.

Somehow the moron that is being quoted above has taken offense at the idea that good people should be depicted as behaving like good people.

Oh, and that evil people should be identified and dealt with as evil people. I personally don't see anything wrong with loathing someone for adhering to an evil ideology. If Greater Germany were still under the rule of the National Socialist German Workers Party, I would have the same problem with them as I have with Iran under Islam.

HAPPY MASS MURDER DAY!!!!

Once again we come to May First.

This is the day on which Leftists traditionally shout out their claim to be morally superior beings who are entitled to rule over us mere humans and take the product of our thought and labor to use as they they see fit for the betterment of mankind. And if you really believe their claims then obviously you won't notice the pile of the one hundred million-plus human bodies that the self styled agents of progress have left in their wake as they have made their way to power, and willfully abused that power over us mere humans.

When we see through the ideology and other claims of the Left it is very readily apparent that their doctrine is nothing more than a modernistic facade placed over the old stone age practice of beating up or killing people and taking their stuff.

It is time that we see the Left for what they truly are, not as the vanguard of moral progress, but only a gang of thieves and murderers.
