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.

My mistake.

Isn't It Nice

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?

Quote Of The Day

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?

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.

What can I say?

Dictator, nomenklatura, machine gun squad, and a really long ditch. Some assembly required.

Message For Putin

(Image courtesy of Instapundit)

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.

This message is sponsored by the NATO Phonetic Letters ECHO SIERRA ALPHA DELTA.

(Postscript: When are you going to give Comrade Lenin a decent burial? Or better yet, just dump his remains in a landfill with the rest of the garbage?)

Thoughts For The Day

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.


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.


(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.


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 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."


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.


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 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.

(Copyright ©2012 KGO-TV/DT. All Rights Reserved.)

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.
