Quote Of The Day

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

-- C.S. Lewis

Thought For The Day

Writing anti-gun "literature" is very easy--all one has to do is take anything published by the NSDAP*and replace the word Jew with a word for Gun Owner.

*National Socialist German Workers Party.  That's the Nazi Party for those readers who are historically challenged.

In the end O-Brien loved Big Brother but in Newspeak a word is used with the opposite meaning.

Thought For The Day


If religion is a system of brainwashing and control then Scientology and Islam both qualify.  And if religion is in fact a negation of Life and Liberty then why should it be protected under the Constitution?

Sigh...

Why don't we drop the pretense that Democrats, Progressives, or whatever they're calling themselves this week are anything other than the Manson Family with graduate degrees and paramilitary death squads in the place of LSD and old rusty knives?

Describing a Progressive as being stupid is an insult to stupid people.

Thought For The Day

The people who support The Big Zero and the would be successors Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are who Robert Heinlein wrote Starship Troopers.

These idiots* simply do not understand the nature of human life and function of government in protecting it.  Not only that but they have been indoctrinated to believe that tyranny is right and freedom is wrong.  Under no circumstance should any of them be allowed to exercise authority as a voting citizen.

Heinlein's proposed solution to the idiot problem is relatively easy to look up for yourself. Or you can purchase a copy of Starship Troopers from Ace Books.

My solution to the idiot problem is simply proper education in the obligations of citizenship.

The course would be similar to a driver education course as presently taught. The first part of the class covers The Constitution, the proper functions of each branch of government, the function of each clause and amendment, the duties of the citizen as the sovereign authority of the nation, and what happened when the Federal Government was allowed to enter the failure mode.  The second part of the course covers the function and use of the instrument of political authority, the personal weapon. This covers rifle marksmanship and maintenance. Also covered is the basic organization and tactics of the citizen militia unit.  While the citizenship course will not be mandatory, completion and a passing grade in it will be required to exercise the authority to vote.


* A word which is derived from the ancient Hellenic word for someone who does not participate in public life as a citizen of the political body.

A Thought

A problem with The Anointed is that they are the last to suffer the negative consequences of their own insanity.

A Possible Scam

I just received a phone call from someone who identified himself as being from the Technical Department of Windows and he asked if I was the primary owner of my computer.  I would assume that a proper Microsoft employee would actually identify himself as be being employed by Microsoft.  On the basis of this I assumed that this was a scam and immediately hung up the phone.

If O.J. Simpson had stayed home that night he would still have a career, real friends, the annoying ex-wife, a reputation as a stand up guy, and most importantly no one outside of Los Angeles would have ever heard the name Kardashian.

Morons Of The Day

A Jihad fan posted this:


In reality if ISIS took out The Big Zero it would actually be a good thing for the United States and Humanity in general.

Please do so.

A Scene From A Work In Progress

This is a scene from a novel I'm currently working on:

Carl Grant had arrived on Freya and checked into a hotel in one of the suburbs of Landfall..  But he had to wait a full local day for the scheduled meeting with the defense secretary as all local government offices were closed on what would have been a normal business day. 

Why was this?

Grant left the hotel early for the meeting and hailed one of the taxicabs waiting at the cab  stand.  It was a Ford Galaxy sedan that had seen service as a police car and was now painted in the company colors of red and white.  The driver appeared to be entering middle age with glasses, a mustache, and a fringe of blond hair.  And he wore his old style M1911A1 in a shoulder holster.

The driver asked a question.

“Where to, sir?”

“The Planetary Government Center in Landfall.”

“There are multiple buildings on the site,” said the driver, “so what department are you visiting?”

Grant answered.

“The Department of Planetary Security.”

“Okay.”

The driver switched on the meter and electric motors hummed as the cab pulled away from the hotel.  But something about the way the driver responded to him seemed a bit odd to Grant.  It was as if he were speaking with a long term veteran soldier.

 “Is there a problem?”  He asked the driver.

“No sir, it’s just that the Founders wanted to call it the War Department, but the groundhogs wouldn’t allow it.”

Grant responded.

“The Federation authorities?” 

“Yes.”  The driver replied.

And then the driver asked his own question.

“Are you a writer, sir?”

“Yes.”  He replied.  “Of military theory for the most part, of works such as On War by Clausewitz.”

The driver’s response was a surprise to him.

Vom Kriege by General Karl Maria Von Clausewitz.”  He said.  “I tried several times to read the complete Standard English edition and the damned thing always put me to sleep.”

“Well military theory is not for everyone.”  Grant curtly replied.

The driver quickly and clearly responded.

“The thing is that Clausewitz began to write at a time when Kant was barely cold in the ground and Hegel had just started his emissions.  At that time the intellectual culture in Germany was already in deep trouble with clarity and brevity already going out of style.   

Grant had not expected a lecture on intellectual history from a common working man.

But he responded.

“I wrote a book on military doctrine titled Future Forces: Organization and Doctrine.”

“I’ve read it.”  Said the driver.

“So how do you feel about it?”

“I think Colonel Simmons wrote a fairly good review of it.  He clearly understood how the citizens out here on the colony worlds would respond to an invasion by your Future Force but didn’t explain the why...”

Grant sneered.

“Simmons...that moron...”

The driver solidly interrupted the sneer

“I served with him when he was a battalion commander in Afghanistan--and we don’t give out Sky Blue Berets as supermarket promotional items--even to West Point graduates.”

“So you were in the Quarantine Force and then retired out here?”

“No.”  The driver replied.  “I enlisted here and served on Earth.”

“Why?”

The driver smiled before answering.

“Because that’s where the enemy combatants are.”

Grant thought for a moment and then spoke again.

“So you feel that the Quarantine Force are all true warriors?”

“Hell no!’  The driver suddenly snapped back.  “The goal of every warrior is to impose his will upon his victims.  And our mission in the Quarantine Force is to hunt down and kill warriors.”

Present tense.  Grant thought.  He spoke with hostility in the present tense.

Grant was now concerned for his own safety.

Is there a round in the chamber of his gun?

The cab then entered the main drive of the Planetary Government Center and stopped at the DPS Building.  Grant paid the fare in cash and without a gratuity.

Thought For The Day

If someone as dumb as Barack Obama had been elected in 1940 there would now be mass graves and special camps from coast to coast and those of us left alive would have learned to speak German the hard way.

Jihad Again

The absolute first thing taught at infantry basic training during the Cold War was that the maximum effective range of an excuse is zero.   On the face of it I saw this as the response to any attempt to explain a failure to learn a necessary skill.  But this idea also applies to the moral nightmare we were facing during with the Communists enemy and their excuses for their crimes.

Today we are facing another and older nightmare with the onslaught of Islam.

There has been another jihad incident.

The functions of ideologies are first to erase the responsibility of the perpetrators for theirs actions and to deny the humanity of the victims.  But there is never a valid excuse for murder.

Task Of The Day

 Today I Printed off 50 copies of this leaflet and managed to give away 5 of them:

A Request

The very first act that every individual performs upon enlisting in the Armed Forces of the United States is promise to uphold and defend The Constitution.

For the Army the oath of enlistment was this:

I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God." (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).

 All of us who served in the Armed Forces made this promise to the nation.

The time has come for us who served to keep the promise.

In 2008 it was clear to every rational observer that Barrack Obama was absolutely unfit to hold any public office.  It was clear that he possessed no valid understanding of human life and of the government that protects it.  It was very clear that he had been indoctrinated in the falsehoods of Marxism and was an adherent of the anti-human doctrine of Environmentalism.  And finally in office he has opened the way to the nuclear arming of the Islamic dictatorship in Iran. 

As President Barack Obama has acted as an adversary to the nation and a friend to our enemies and to Humanity as a whole.  There is no question that he is absolutely unfit to occupy the office of President and must be removed.

Although Congress has the authority to remove a President through the process of impeachment it will not happen.  The Republican Party, which actually represents the People of The United States, lacks the votes and the fortitude to carry out this task.  And the other party is simply too depraved to do it.

There is no question at this point that the Armed Forces must step up and remove Obama from office.  We need a military coup–right now.

Please copy and pass along.

Last night during my long walk  I came up with a line I want the protagonist in the novel to use:

"Because under all the indoctrination is an active mind struggling to break free."

Fun With Friday

I will start by thanking my friend Mark Urbin for posting this on his Tumblr site:



While Socialism appears on the face of it to be an economic doctrine it is in fact an excuse for a series of political actions--the acquisition and exercise of power.

The fundamental value of what we call the Progressive Movement is Power.  The very first member of the of what we now call that movement was the stone age hunter-gatherer who saw others working the land with their primitive tools and decided to compel them to feed him.  Their sole original idea was to enslave the productive and every thought they had since that time was simply an excuse for the use of Power.

The fact is that if a Socialist had a conscience they wouldn't be a Socialist.

Another Mind Dropping

Mark Urbin has called attention to this bit of cognitive noise:


As normal the masters hold the slaves in contempt.  In this case the normal woman who is going about her life is deemed to unable to exercise rational judgement in identifying a rapist.

Although this Democrat (I won't call it Human) is claiming to protect the innocent the concept of innocence means nothing to it.  This being is disarming college women, and everyone in general, to protect his own sorry carcass.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?

Gosh--What A Surprise!

Thanks to Mark Urbin and CEREBRALZERO for calling attention to this mind dropping:


In Century of Death we have learned during that Marxism in theory has always led to mass murder in practice. 

In objective reality the declaration of intent to commit murder, and in this case mass murder, is more than sufficient grounds to respond with deadly force.  The fact is that killing a Marxist is not an act of murder, it is clearly an act of defense of Humanity in General.  And the sooner this begins the better off each of us as individuals and Humanity as a whole will be.

And as a Combat Rifleman (U.S. Army MOS 11B) I have absolutely no problem with the proper disposal of such anti-human trash.

(And before some Marxist starts whining about the execution scene--a Socialist is a Socialist and is a Enemy of Mankind--and they are without exception vermin fit only for extermination.)

What are your questions on this block of instruction?

Rant Of The Day

Today I had a visit with my primary care doctor.  In the waiting area of the office was the latest issue of TIME magazine with a cover story that proclaimed the end of the era of capital punishment.

Oh really?

The fundamental moral value held by Hillary Clinton as an open collectivist is power.  If Hillary were elected we can be certain that she will be in touch with what I cal her Inner Stalin.  And as a result we should not be surprised to see mass graves of her victims--including myself--from coast to coast.

In the history of collectivist states in the last century* it was clear that the central goal of the collectivist state was unlimited power over the subjects.  This requires absolute submission of the subjects to the collectivist leader.  And in every case where the collectivist state is in power those who rightfully refuse to obey the leader is seen as an enemy of the state and put to death.

The polite term is execution but in reality it is clearly the act of murder.

But that won't be all.

In the doctrine of collectivism those who are not useful to the state are essentially a dead weight that must be disposed of.  Helpless adults and children will be put down for the good of the collective as in the case of Action T4.  This was the murder of retarded children and adults carried out by the National Socialist state in Germany in which the technology of genocide was developed for The Holocaust.

And because these actions will be performed for the good of the collective the perpetrators will feel good about it.

What are your questions?


* I normally call this period in history The Century of Death

Reminder

Mark Urbin has reminded us of the fact that 26 years ago on this day someone blocked some traffic.


Now it may seem that I'm trivializing the event.  But this cropped image only shoes the man blocking five tanks.  What was then the equivalent of an American army platoon.


The uncropped image shows that the man had blocked the effective equivalent of a tank battalion.

Weekend Update

Apparently Al-Moron stayed home this weekend.  But the gang-bangers in urban centers like Chicago were out in force to commit their usual violent crimes.  And of course the progressive propagandists were blaming the innocent as usual.

A Reminder


Bitching On The Anniversary

On this day in 1776 a bunch of subjects of the British crown declared themselves and their fellow Americans to be the free citizens of a free nation.  Needless to say King George III and the British Aristocracy objected to this revolutionary act with deadly force.

Although the United States Constitution clearly prohibits the establishment of an aristocratic class one has been brought into effect by judicial fiat.  Homosexuals -- a group once commonly identified as depraved or mentally ill -- have been granted a separate and superior status with respect to the citizens of our nation.  Anyone who refuses a demand from a homosexual on any grounds are now subject to civil punishment.  Given this it would not be a surprise when the refusal of a demand by a homosexual will result in a criminal penalty as well.

In reality this is called oppression.  In the last year the Pink Triangle of the Homosexual Collective has changed from a sign of victim status to being a symbol of the oppressors.  It has become a symbol of tyranny like the Red Star of Soviet Communism and the Broken Cross of National Socialism.

What are your questions on this rant?

UPDATE 1735 CDT:

I'm reposting  a rant on the subject of Gay Rights.


The Myth Of Gay Rights


What is a right?

In Objectivism a right is a moral principle that defines and sanctions an individual’s freedom of action in a social context.  There’s only one basic right, a person’s right to their own life.[1]

So what is a Gay Right?

The so-called Gay Right is a political privilege, a law enacted for the private benefit of homosexuals, which negates the freedom of non-homosexuals.  In most of the cases on record it’s the freedom to not associate with homosexuals.

Why disassociate from homosexuals?

In the cases that have come up for judicial action individuals are being punished for complying with the Christian moral code.  In Christianity homosexuality is identified as a sin and as a result they are to be shunned.  In reality the act of shunning a homosexual does not violate his real rights because in a free society all personal interactions are voluntary.

In a case that came up for judicial action a homosexual couple entering into a pretend marriage sought to buy a wedding cake for their ceremony.  When they were refused on Christian moral grounds they sued the baker for the act of discrimination.  Instead of choosing a different baker to voluntarily provide the cake as is proper in a free society they chose to reject the principle of freedom and to judicially inflict their will upon the baker.[2]

Are there grounds to disassociate from homosexuals and thus a rational basis to do so?

In reality homosexuality is a mental dysfunction.  The homosexual act runs counter to the normal biological functions of human life.  And homosexuals have been disruptive to the normal interactions in civil and military groups. [3]  

Given that there are both religious and rational grounds for disassociating from homosexuals it’s no surprise that the adherents of tyranny, those that seek to establish the Primacy of the State with themselves fully in control, have quickly and firmly moved to exploit the homosexual voting block.  In exchange for the privilege of negating the rights of non-homosexuals this collective is consistently supporting the complete effort of the tyrants to impose their rule upon our nation.  This should result in a negative outcome for the homosexual collective.  When the present cold civil struggle becomes an open war the victims of the homosexual collective will seek an end to their problem.

A permanent end.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?   
    

Footnotes

2.  In finding for the homosexual couple the judge acted in the opposite manner of a judicial officer in a free society.  For this he should be taken out and shot.

3.  The ancient Greek city state of Thebes had a dedicated all homosexual military formation.  It was wiped out in action.

Thought For The Day

The warrior for Social Justice is not concerned with actual justice.  He, she, or it is seeking to feel good regardless of the consequences of their actions.

Think of it as ideology in action.
