It offends me that I share citizenship with morons who pin their hopes on one side or the other as created or coopted by our masters of fiat purchasing power. The Republicans are the backstop party, the pawl enforcer in a ratcheting mechanism led by the Democrats. Democrats, they win; Republicans, you loose. The record of history is clear enough that a home-schooled child could read it: The guns without sovereignty have racked up no where near the carnage the guns with sovereignty have. Saving the dish set at the expense of the ship is what people unworthy of civilization do with their civil rights. Damned if I’ll cooperate with landlubber shipworms when that blight cries at the end for life jackets and lifeboats.
So here we go again. Now it’s the Sandy Hook school massacre, where less adults and children died than at the 50-day government ‘siege’ in Waco. Per the standard modus operandi, Obama talks in platitudes—in native La La Land of the single female voter, the weaponized domestic-goddess co-housewife of Daddy Government instinctively pack mothering Daddy’s plague family of diversity disguised dependency spawn—pontificating as usual that law-abiding citizens can have their cake and eat it to. The point of the Second Amendment is so that We the People ARE THE GOVERNMENT! Read the Preamble. Every gun law in the United States of America is unconstitutional, period. That freedom does not excuse the Obama Administration’s Fast and Furious operation, and I suppose we are to believe Obama had no idea. He sure is smart at getting elected and explaining the Constitution.
Listen with thinking clarity. The ‘needs of the community’ are not the needs of the Establishment running our lives. Is the United States the people or the institutional government? The Nazi Government started WWII a year after passing the 1938 German Weapons Act used to disarmed Germans whose trustworthiness with or need for a gun was questionable TO GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.
More recently, Obama said in a press conference on 19 December 2012 with VP Bite Me to his right:
“What we’re looking for here is a thoughtful approach that says we can preserve our Second Amendment, we can make sure that responsible gun owners are able to carry out their activities, but that we’re gonna actually be serious about the safety side of this.”
It was at that press conference that Obama appointed Biden to lead a new committee to expeditiously draft proposal gun control legislation.
Biden parroted Obama the next day when he said, “Even if we can only save one life, we have to take action.” Let me fill in the blanks for you. “Even if we can only save one life, we have to take action [that will increase this government’s ability to stifle 300 million lives at will].” Yes, the math from our leaders, consummate politicians of power consolidation not growth, always excludes the larger terms of subjugation.
What are our illustrious leaders not telling us with their carefully crafted words of the moment? According to a CNN article:
No politician could be better suited to the challenge of passing federal gun control legislation than Biden. Over the past four decades, Biden has been one of the most consistent and effective advocates of gun control and violence prevention legislation.
It is only reasonable to conclude as a responsible American citizen that the goal of the Obama administration, nay the fiat-moneyed Establishment for a century now, is disarmament of the American people into holocaust-ready helplessness.
Thomas Jefferson told us:
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
We are too corrupt or dense to even passively resist despotism that still needs our consent. We are the dog waged by the tail. The standards of this we of today are too, too liberal. The standards in force are discriminatory against our human excellence to temporarily cultivate our depravity. Nondiscrimination is a fable believed only by cowards.
How many deaths have not been paraded relentlessly in the media over the past week? More than the 26 at Newtown I’m sure, but detailing those deaths is not politically expedient. Yet the trap is using the debate frame of invaluable human life at all. Does it matter which deaths in the future we expect government to prevent if we can only ratchet forward Fabian style with more, more, more? We ought to embrace our lives as our own, death and all. Not even the National Rifle Association (NRA) is doing that. They have sided with totalitarian control under the cloak of doublespeak, just like ‘the other side’. lmfao Their official statement (click through or try here) of 21 December 2012 made by Wayne Lapierre cloaks itself in sound principles:
As parents, we do everything we can to keep our children safe. It is now time for us to assume responsibility for their safety at school. The only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Would you rather have your 911 call bring a good guy with a gun from a mile away … or a minute away?
* * * * *
They’re our kids. They’re our responsibility. And it’s not just our duty to protect them — it’s our right to protect them.
However, that’s not what the NRA is actually supporting. This is what they are supporting:
I call on Congress today to act immediately, to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every school — and to do it now, to make sure that blanket of safety is in place when our children return to school in January.
The NRA is calling on more central government dependency. Any voting-age American who does not understand the difference between a military and a militia is a dangerous fool. True patriotism is not government-issued candy. Too many Americans take the phrase ‘national security’ at face value. All we need now is an ESA to go with the TSA. You think your children are groped now? Comply and love it, you worms!
While I am on the subject of debauched vocabulary, inflation is the rise in prices not from where they were but from where they would have gone. Since that idea is too complicated for even economic geniuses, we have Austrian laurels for those who define inflation as money supply increase. Purchasing power is closer to the issue of wealth.
Apparent Deflation – The fall in pricing level due to absolute decrease in the money supply.
Apparent Inflation – The rise in pricing level due to absolute increase in the money supply.
Real Deflation – The fall in pricing level due to absolute increase in wealth.
Real Inflation – The rise in pricing level due to absolute decrease in wealth.
Notes: (1) By definition, Apparent Inflation = –Apparent Deflation, and Real Inflation = –Real Deflation. (2) Conceptually, if not mathematically so simple: Price Inflation = Apparent Inflation + Real Inflation = –Apparent Deflation – Real Deflation.
Pricing level inflation is due to combined apparent and real inflation, meaning due to changes in both money supply and wealth supply. A warehouse fire plainly lowers living standards by decreasing existent wealth. New money transfers existent wealth such that living standards are lost to some for the gain of others. If the inflation tax profits are wasted—and why wouldn’t they be?—then living standards are generally debased, but luxury and control accrue to a parasitic elite no doubt smart enough to plan to farm human livestock sustainably in the victorious future.
Overall price increases do not fully reflect elitist appropriations by purchasing power. Forgone price lowering by real deflation due to wealth expansion is masked by apparent inflation. (Real Deflation < Apparent Inflation.) As a result, honest wealth production is an unprofitable practice on average and anywhere below an above-average threshold of positive efficiency (real productivity before the inflation tax handicap), and the productive class is being liquidated by the very institutions to which most voters demand things be made right while keeping their hands clean from responsibility. Real deflation alone would reflect and maximize the rise in our standards of living, if it were allowed, by sloughing off the institutionalized human garbage, but instead our standards are not going up despite the exponential growth of technology. Moocher economic activity is counted in Gross Domestic Product (GDP), but it is subtracted from your living standard, being constructive oppression wrapped in humanist wastefulness.
So let’s all hold hands with the dumb asses and march into privileged impotence with each step of our choreographed Hegelian dialectic. The weak minds among us want clean, absolute answers. Mortals don’t enjoy clean, absolute existence, so seeking such answers is failure from the start. Humans have advanced gradually by the hard work of getting into the mental mess of details, relationships, and limitations. Life centers around productions not products. Participate with me, or get out of my way. You ain’t making it on your claws and fangs, or whining to government. Life for a cerebral species is about the planning not the plan, nor troubled wishes.
Even if the above analysis is not exactly right, it is useful. Is the idea of self-government so absurd to ponder diligently? Living like the past Americans that made America great is an overwhelming and ridiculous ideal for the minds of lesser humans who prefer or require more primitive thinking. The results of tribal allegiance and conflict are beneath me and should be beneath you, dear reader. Invested too much emotionally into sports outcomes? Afraid to think about channeling that testosterone in a manly direction? That’s by design. Where’s your allegiance, effectively? Only philosophers can possibly deserve to be free with any substance. Feral freedom is illusory, a slavery disguised by the void of responsibility and meaning.
On 14 December 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, 6 adults and 20 children were massacred by a troubled gunman. Where’s your allegiance, effectively? If your answer is reactively different to suit your feed diet, you are as qualified to vote as the average unmarried woman.
U.S. Government policy supports financial engineering by banking elites to include mortgage backed securities, credit default swaps, and interest rate swaps. The fiat money controls the military and police guns. The financial engineering has wrecked the U.S. economy and the livelihoods of millions of Americans, including me and I’m pissed. In case you don’t know, a livelihood is the means of maintaining life. Add to that the social riches that never were and the lost youths. I hope I’m not the only one righteously pissed. You’re next if you’re not already here unless you die first. Some people do get to have their cake and eat it too. It’s pretty much called exploitation and assault. I fantasize about ending those situations.
On 2 August 1967 the Tonkin Gulf incident was perhaps feigned and allegedly to have occurred. Presidents Johnson and Nixon lied to allow the military-industrial complex to make millions on the blood of thousands. Soldier fodder is ideally young, strong, and naive. Lots of foreign children died in the Vietnam War. On 4 March 1970 at Kent State, the Ohio National Guard killed 4 college students and paralyzed another while Nixon milked the proxy war. We have nothing meaningful to show for the latest carnage in Iraq and Afghanistan except profits, death, and hate. Like General Smedley Butler said, the boys like their medals. Stormtroopers are not minutemen. Exceptional is the inscrutable hamster honor of the garden variety Southern boy, who by inherited experience ought to know better than any other American recruitment pool.
[RD, 23-12-2012: I just came across this similarly themed piece from The Atlantic personifying the foreign children killed by U.S. drones vis-a-vis the children killed at Sandy Hook. Conor Friedersdorf, staff-writer at The Atlantic, swear to Truth, wrote: “As I argued yesterday, criticizing Obama’s speech in Newtown, it is often appropriate to choose freedom rather than minimize the number of innocent deaths in a society.” The same outfit puts out feminist crap like The End of Men. Go figure. This Alex Jones’ video takes the cake.]
Guns wielded with government authority have undoubtedly killed more people than guns wielded by all the lone gunmen ever. Where’s your allegiance, effectively? If your answer is still reactionary, you are as qualified to vote as the average unmarried woman. The issue is not if we die; the issue is how we live. I would choose to live with philosophical invalids as my political equals like I would choose to sleep in a bed of loaded guns. People kill people. Scores of dead children or all the dead soldiers ever do not change the issues of governance one iota. Life demands and life has possibilities. There is time for war and time for peace, time to help and time to neglect.
Whether Americans choose the Democrat solution of populace disarmament or the Republican solution of domestic militarization, we the people will be more helpless and exploited than before. Instead of doubling down on public schools as the ultimate caretakers of our collective children, maybe parents should endeavor to retain the means and sovereignty to raise them and watch over them personally. I agree with Eric Holder, Mr. Fast and Furious, that we are a nation of cowards, but for different and legitimate reasons. Americans have lost their stomachs for their own lives, really the men, especially the white men who had the best values and society in the world and agreed those things were contemptable, and inevitably themselves. That’s what happens when women need little or no men to be the majority coalition of voters. Men of civilized ability who abdicate their own potential, as I used to do by misplaced trust, are contemptible in their contrition to the arrogant parasites of no independent civilized potential. Subordinate inclusion is too good for them. They will naturally diminish if not go extinct without assistance from those of exercised civic ability. There is a time to neglect and permit civilized standards their offering of flesh to nature, but enough of the best vaginae-uteri available must be incorporated, subordinated according to its nature.
For the Mosuo, women are simply the more effective and reliable gender. However, they do say that the “really big” decisions — like buying a house or a machine or selling a cow — are made by the men. Men are good for this kind of decision-making as well as physical labor.
The Mosuo way of life is not matriarchal but lazy patriarchal. It survived autonomously only in fortuitous isolation that permitted the cultivation of its fecklessness. I admit sex and hunting is appealing, but endlessly only to derelicts. Life demands real progress or real failure sooner or later. Think about it.
