Labels!

Chaos!

17 June 21   “‘Anarcho-tyranny’ is a concept, where the state is more interested in controlling citizens, so that citizens do not oppose the overbearing political class (tyranny), rather than controlling real criminals (which might bring about peace and prosperity, and worst of all, dignity).   ‘Laws’ are therefore enforced only selectively, depending on what […]

Skewed view of “Freedom”

15 June 21   Perspective, from a friend in CA:   “The irony is represented by California’s pro-criminal Democrats’ skewed view of ‘freedom:’   1. Petty theft is now de-facto ‘legal’ in CA.

1 June 21   The UN “Human Rights Committee” has decided to establish a permanent commission devoted to studying and criticizing Israel’s “Crimes Against Humanity.” For starters, they’ve declared Israel’s military response to Hamas’ recent precipitous rocket attack as “disproportional.”   Curiously, they never get around to describing exactly what a “proportional response” might look […]

Spiritual Suicide!

28 May 21   When the “mainstream media” refer to “mass shootings,” we never get to know what kind of gun(s) was used.

Stationary Momentum!
