Thought for the Day

Anyone who believes that tyrannicide is murder may not be part of the problem of tyranny, but that is certainly the way to bet.

Thought for the Day

Of course the tyrannophiles, otherwise known as the Left, are having a fit over the permanent disposal of Saddam Hussein.

I once wrote this about the relationship between the Left and their beloved tyrants:

Socialists are inherently parasitic and thus cannot take "no" for an answer to their demands for obedience and the material goods they need to exist. If they did so they would wither away and die.

A dictator, on the other hand, does not have to take "no" for answer. Thus socialists are by necessity inclined to favor dictatorships over citizen-ruled republics.

When they see a dictator in the dock, they see their own hopes and desires go with him.

And when they see a dictator doing a dance at the end of a rope they see themselves perishing with him.

Do I really need to say more?

No, I really don't think so.

Update at 0740 CST:

Apparently I do have something more to say.

The frothing of the Left continues. Their hatred of President Bush the Tyrannicide will intensify because they will see him as an active hazard to their own lives. So we should expect to see them become more explicit in their desire to see President Bush die.

We should watch for the first "Kill Bush" bumper stickers.

Update at 0940 CST:

Eon over at LGF had this to say on the subject:

Also, to a great extent, the attitude of these individuals toward the likes of Saddam is that of envy. They see someone they would like to emulate, and whom they believe they are entitled to emulate, as follows;

1. I am a progressive. I am therefore on a higher moral plane than anyone else.

2. (1) proves that I am innately superior to all others. I am therefore the one best suited to rule, and gain the rewards of doing so.

3. (1) and (2) together should be obvious to all others, so they should therefore recognize my inherent specialness and general wonderfulness and obey me as I manage their lives for them- to my benefit, as I am far more important than they are.

4. Anyone who does not acknowledge the truth of (1), (2), and (3) is both stupid and evil, and must be destroyed.

You or I can see that this entire argument is built on a false premise- namely, that those who style themselves as "progressive" are somehow different or inherently better than the rest of the human race. But the ones who claim this label are convinced that it is not merely true, but an immutable law of nature.

Or in other words, they believe in a cult of self-worship.

This probably explains most of the posters on DailyKos, HuffPo, and DU. As well as anyone who ever thought that all answers to any problem could be found in the works of Marx, Engels, or Marcuse. Or Nietsche, for that matter.

Just an observation.

Today in Pizzaland

I had a large pizza order today from a group having a meeting at the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul today. The male person that I talked to was unable to tell me which specific building on campus they were in. I asked him several times and all he would tell me was that he was on the campus. To show how stupid he was I must point out that all buildings on the campus have the name of the building on a sign at the building entrance. I strongly suspect that the individual may have been a peace activist. But I didn't ask.

Let's Do this!

The U.S.S. Robert A. Heinlein

What better way to commemorate Robert Heinlein's birth centennial than naming a major new US Navy ship after him? The ultra-sophisticated DDG destroyers (Zumwalt class) are something straight out of science fiction themselves, and there's never been a better ship to name after an sf writer, futurist and proud Navy man.

We'll have more here soon about the USS Heinlein campaign and how to make it happen, but for now, here's the scoop from our event coordinator, Tim Kyger:

The U.S.S. Robert A. Heinlein Campaign

For all but a very brief period at the beginning of our history, the word ship will mean space ship. [1] Many will be named “Robert A. Heinlein.”

Only one will ever be the first.

We have the chance to name that very first one. [2]

This coming July 7, 2007 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Robert A. Heinlein. That day would be a perfect opportunity for the Secretary of the Navy to announce that ship DDG-1001 (or another early hull number) would be named the U.S.S. Robert A. Heinlein.

How do we make it happen? We write the Secretary of the Navy and ask him to! The Secretary of the Navy has the authority to name the ships of the U.S. Navy (he is the only one who can).

Thought for the Day

If history has taught us anything, it is that peace has never been the result of yielding to the will of one's enemies. Peace can only come as the result of totally and unconditionally defeating those who seek to bend you to their will.

In other words, give us Liberty or we will give you Death.

Update at 0900 hrs CST, 29 December, 2009:

Rabbi Eliyahu Shalem of Jerusalem has some more to say on the subject:

As a proposition war should be avoided but not at all costs for it thus serves to appease the evil bent on their own agendas. Even containment can be misused and only aid and abet the evil.
Adam's regime was evil and had to be removed. Ahmedinajad's call to annihilate genocidely the Jewish people is a blatant evil and must be removed before it is too late.
Bush was correct and the American people at the time after 9/11 were again correct. War is justified in these circumstances. Save the moralizing for Sunday morning.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

Good News!

Saddam Hussein is to hanged by Sunday.

Actor Jerry Haleva to be out of work.

Leftist tyrranophiles are expected to blame President Bush.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

Update at 2000 hrs CST:

And now for something completely different, a song!

Hang the bastard, hang him high.
Hoist his body to the sky.
It's as nice as a day can be.
Won't you come to the hanging with me?

Hang the bastard, hang him high.
Hoist his body to the sky.
It's as nice as a day can be.
Won't you come to the hanging with me?

Hang the bastard, hang him well.
Send his sorry soul to hell.
When his neckbone snaps we'll know.
When the (dic-tat-or) won't be killing anymore.

His face will turn red,
Then purple, then blue.
We'll watch from up here
To get a good view.
And when his eyes bug out we'll know,
It's the end of him
And the end of the show!

So hang the bastard, hang him with cheer.
We'll make some hot dogs
And drink a few beers.
And when his tongue rolls out we'll know,
It's the end of the show
And we all can go home!

But not till we hang the bastard, hang him here.
The most exciting thing this town has seen in years.
When his body stops jerking we'll know,
It's the end of him, it's the end of him,
It's the end of him,
And the end of the show.

[Cowbell solo]

So hang the bastard, hang him high.
Kiss his guilty butt goodbye.
It's as nice as a day can be.
Won't you come to the hanging with me?

His veins will pop out all over his head.
We'll tickle his armpits to make sure he's dead.
And when his tongue rolls out we'll know,
It's the end of him and we all can go home!

But not till we
Hang the bastard, hang him high.

Hoist his body to the sky.
When his body stops jerking we'll know,
It's the end of him, it's the end of him,
It's the end of him!
Let's get on with the show!

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

The Left lied, millions died.

The Worst Day of the Year

Contributed by George Mellinger

Monday will be a day for contemplating all that is best, most noble and perfect in our world. But today is the day to contemplate all that is ugly, criminal and thoroughly demonic. It behooves us to remember from time to time all the worst of which we are capable, and today is the most fitting day of all. On December 22, 1879, in the Georgian village of Gori was born Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, better known as Stalin.

I would also say that killing a Marxist is no more a wrongful act than is putting down a rabid dog.

So Anyway

So I stopped over at The People's Cube to see what they're up to today. Apparently it was Volume II, Chapter I of the the autobiography of a certain famous socialist. Which they quoted:

- We demand that the State shall make it its primary duty to provide a livelihood for its citizens.
- The abolition of incomes unearned by work.
- The breaking of the slavery of interest
- Personal enrichment from war must be regarded as a crime against the nation. We demand therefore the ruthless confiscation of all war profits.
- We demand the nationalization of all businesses which have been formed into corporations (trusts).
- We demand profit-sharing in large industrial enterprises.
- We demand the extensive development of insurance for old age.
- We demand the passing of a law for the expropriation of land for communal purposes without compensation
- The State must consider a thorough reconstruction of our national system of education. The aim of the school must be to give the pupil, beginning with the first sign of intelligence, a grasp of the nation of the State (through the study of civic affairs).
- The State must ensure that the nation's health standards are raised by protecting mothers and infants, by prohibiting child labor.
- We demand the abolition of the mercenary army and the foundation of a people's army.
- The publishing of papers which are not conducive to the national welfare must be forbidden.
- Our nation can achieve permanent health only from within on the basis of the principle: The common interest before self-interest.
- To put the whole of this program into effect, we demand the creation of a strong central state power

Guess which well known socialist party had all that in its platform?

"We demand the abolition of the mercenary army and the foundation of a people's army." That sounds like something Charles Rangel would agree with given all of his efforts to replace our Volunteer Army with a mob of draftees.

I want to watch the DUmmies, the KOSsacks, and the Huffpuffers pop arteries when they find out who really wrote it. (Tee hee hee.)

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

Thought for the Day

Expecting a Leftist to speak the truth is like expecting that Bill Clinton will not have a zipper failure.

Okay, they can't all be profound.

In Other News

Here's something that the mainstream media will never publish about Fidel Castro:

According to the Harvard-published "Black Book of Communism," he executed 14,000 subjects by firing squad. These ranged in age from 16 to 68 and included several women, at least one of them pregnant.

According to the scholar/researchers at the Cuba Archive, his regime's total death toll from torture, prison beatings, machine gunning of escapees, drownings of same, etc. comes to 112,000 and counting.

There is a reason I no longer buy newspapers and switch on the network news programs.

Their reporting on political and ethical issues simply cannot be trusted.

There are days that I wish that this branch of our own national fifth column could be held accountable for their ongoing support of slavers and murderers. But would require the creation of the government bureau whose function is to determine what the truth is and to punish those publish contradictions of it. And THAT is a power I don't want to fall into the hands of socialist trash like Comrade Hillary, et al.

In my opinion I think the whole doctrine or practice of Leftism, and thugism in general, can be reduced down to eight words:


Well, that's my theory.

A Message... the Iraq Surrender Group, to the Democrats, and to the other willing servants of the Enemies of Mankind:

“Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say 'what should be the reward of such sacrifices?' Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!”

-- Samuel Adams, Brewer and Patriot.

A Blast From The Past

My feelings toward the Japs could be described as a cold fury. I not only want them to be defeated. I want them to be smashed. I want them to be punished at least a hundredfold, their cities burned, their industries smashed, their fleet destroyed, and finally, their sovereignty taken away from them. We have been forced into a course of imperialism. So let it be. Germany and Japan are not safe to have around; we are bigger and tougher then they are, I sincerely believe. Let’s rule them. We did not want it that way–but if somebody has to be the boss, I want it to be us. Disarm them and don’t turn them loose. We can treat the individual persons decently in an economic sense, but take away their sovereignty.

– Robert A. Heinlein, Letter to John W. Campbell, December 9, 1941.

Someone Asked A Dumb Question

Some piece of Leftist trash is whining:

Is there any way to ban Limbaugh, O'Reilly and their ilk from the airwaves?

This question touches on the first amendment freedom of speech. But what about speech that provides only hatred, propaganda and divisiveness?

The piece of Leftist trash quoted by P.J. Comix is simply being stupid as usual.

As Ayn Rand used to say, a gun is not a substitute for an argument.

Once force is openly used against those who speak out against the Left then the gloves will come off and force WILL be openly used against the Left. Once the Left openly repudiates the rules for living in a civil society then their victims will no longer see themselves as subject to those same rules.

Or to put it another way to the Left, break the rules of civil society and you will have left us no choice but to break you.

It's called a civil war. And cars with bumper stickers, tee-shirts, and other examples of open posturing will make target identification very easy.

What part of "Liberty or Death" do they persist in not understanding?

It is generally considered to be bad form to advocate violence against someone simply because of their political views. But if some Leftist thug finds himself staring at the muzzle of my favorite rifle it is because the stupid individual put himself there.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?
