~~on all this Land of the Free and Home of the Brave business

How can the people of this once great country consider themselves "free" when they allow the thugs in blue to enter our homes warrantless and clueless and with such deadly force?  Why isn't it outrageous when these gestapo wanna-be's target innocent people and then in turn use their innocent pets for target practice?  And when they make "mistakes" there are no repercussions, no price to pay.  At most they get paid vacations on the very taxpayers' dimes on whom they declared their vicious war on drugs or war on raw milk.  How can we consider ourselves free or brave when we allow the goons of the TSA, the reptiles who cannot seem to get respectable jobs cleaning bus station toilets, to grope us, our elderly parents and our children?  What kind of bravery is it for parents who teach their children not to let strangers touch them in certain private places, then take their children to the airport,  and cower and scrape in front of these demonic guardians of the gates while they allow them to do everything that they warned their children against?  What kind of child allows these goons to grope their elderly and infirm parents, to even have these disgusting monsters closely examine the very shit in their Depends?  Oh God, we wouldn't want to miss our flight now would we?

Better hide under the bed all you free and brave people.  Al Qaida hates you for your freedom!

~~on Clarence Darrow

What a brilliant man.  I knew Clarence Darrow's name from the famous, or infamous, Monkey Trials.  Didn't know much else about him.  Went to book club this past weekend and we were fortunate enough to J.H. Huebert as a guest speaker, author of month's book choice, "Libertarianism Today."  During book club, he mentioned Clarence Darrow's short book called "Resist Not Evil."  Darrow was an anarchist, believing that man has been brainwashed since the earliest time to believe that government was necessary to keep order and peace in the world.  He believed that the opposite was true - government causes chaos, injustice and murder.

Darrow recognized that governments are born out of and survive through aggression.  From the time of the earliest savages, the man with the biggest club became the ruler of all, not to protect the smallest, weakest of them, but to enrich his own life, claiming for himself the fruits of the labor of the ruled.  Of course he needed help to subjugate those that he ruled over by recruiting lieutenants and helpers, bribing them with a piece of the action.  Thus was born the earliest governments.  Yes, this is a simplistic view and Darrow does a much better job in describing it in this book.

Though this was written back in 1902, much of what he writes is applicable today.

~~on why I'm starting this blog.

I get tired of fighting with my crazy ass relatives and friends on Facebook who think that the State is the be all and end all of civilization and the only means by which man may live in harmony with fellow man.  I'm not going to be politically correct in these posts - these are just random thoughts from someone who began her journey to freedom late in life.

I'll see where this journey leads me ~~
