Gary Johnson 2012Peace is Cheaper

From the page of the embedded YouTube clip —

Republicans are Thelma. The Democrats are Louise. Together they are taking our nation over a cliff. We have a President and a majority in Congress who insist on endless war. But a majority of Americans are insisting on Peace. As our President, Gary Johnson will end the wars and bring our men and women home — where we will rebuild and renew our broken nation together. We the People will have PEACE. Demand it. Donate to it. Elect it. Protect it. The fight for our liberty never ends.

    Face it – you’re not going to win over libertarians with this “Free but fair” bit.

    I suggest that you start reading (see above) and develop your writing skills.

    If you don’t, I’ll assume that you’re a typical Republican, behaving like the salesman who calls potential customers idiots for not buying the product.

    Didn’t they try this schtick before a few times during the Bush XLIII Administration with things like Operation Tips, where they wanted to co-opt UPS and Fed-Ex drivers as their informants?

    Anyway, GOOD LUCK finding a working payphone in Albuquerque – at least one where you won’t catch some funky disease from the handset.

    It would probably work out better to get a few pre-paid cell phones (the cheapies so you can toss them if needed), buy them with CASH, and register them from an internet cafe under names like “Mr. Big Dick,” “I.P. Freely,” etc.

    So exactly when will we be able to order these “smart” bullets from Cheaper Than Dirt?

    I can understand getting pissed about the double standard (“it’s OK to do this to conservatives . . .”) but as for the picture itself – we have a First Amendment that guarantees Flynt’s and our pre-existing right to freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Cupp is a public figure, so she’ll get over it.

    As for Cupp suing Flynt, Flynt’s been down that road before with Jerry Falwell in 1983 and won in the end – hence the disclaimers on the Hustler article. I  suspect that Flynt does these pieces specifically to provoke litigation.

    “If you can find a more dedicated and proven libertarian than Larry Flint, I’ll kiss your ass in Macy’s window.”

    That’s an easy one – L. Neil Smith, Ernie Hancock, Adam Kokesh

    The whole “Left vs. Right” silliness is based upon the seating chart of the 1791 French National Assemby, not upon any rational analysis of the issues.

  3. Posted to the “Libertarian Hotties” Facebook group

    Emerson White – While such a difference is important, Duverger’s Law specifically states that an electoral system like that currently in use in the States will tend to move towards two major political parties.

  4. Posted to Brad Spnagler’s Facebook Wall

    Fuck ’em – I’ve been on austerity wages (30-60 % pay cut) since March 2011, while my public-sector “counterparts” take to the streets over cuts of about 1-5 %.

  1. Re: Obscene Moth Bombing Blockade

    The problem with smacking them on the wall with anything (newspaper / magazine, flyswatter, slipper) is the greasy spot that sticks to the wall afterwards.

    They also have a tendency to leave their wing scales (?) behind when they stay in one spot for a long time.

    However, they do seem to be slacking off a bit (at least over here on the West Side).

    Whatever you do, don’t put anything like a wreath on your front door during moth season – they love wreaths (sp?) as hiding places.

    Neil, you should get an Amazon Seller account – that way, you not only get royalties from the publisher, but a commission from Amazon, as well. Barnes & Noble appears to have a similar system.

  1. Re: Patriots!

    Draft Trump?!

    Never mind that Trump’s 2011 activity wasn’t much more than promotional copy for Season 12 of The Apprentice. Consider that on the issues, he’s right next to The Great White Obama when it comes to parroting The Barack‘s policy positions:

    • Institution of a once-only 14.25 percent tax on personal estates and trusts over $10 million, which he estimated would raise $5.7 trillion in revenue toward retirement of the national debt, tax cuts for the middle class, and supplementing the funding of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid; and, by way of compensating this one-time tax on the wealthy, permanent abolition of the 55 percent federal inheritance tax.
    • Repeal of limits on campaign contributions, combined with outlawing soft money campaign contributions
    • Regarding universal health care, Trump touted himself as “a conservative on most issues, but a liberal on this one. Working out detailed plans will take time. But the goal should be clear: Our people are our greatest asset.”

    Trump’s present political stances include being pro-life, against same-sex marriage, anti-gun control, advocating the repeal and replacement of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, anti-foreign aid; and supporting a fair trade policy and believing generally that the People’s Republic of China should be considered more of an adversarial competitor, subjected to significant import tariffs as a response to China’s currency manipulation in order to help balance the U.S. budget. He said he would impose a 25 percent tariff on Chinese goods. He also believes the U.S. should disengage in Iraq and Afghanistan. In December 2008, Trump supported a government backed rescue plan for the American auto industry where the government would provide the debtor in possession financing for a Chapter 11 restructuring.

    Emphasis on the word present – give him a week and it could flip 180 degrees.

    Anyway, I take it as a given that Trump’s “politics” are all about reinforcing his spot in the current mercantilist plutocracy, where people like himself use their influence with public officials to coerce the rest of us into giving them what they want. Just ask Vera Coking.

    If you hear anything from Trump lambasting The Barack for America’s national debt, disregard it – he’s got 900,000,000 in personal debt and 3,500,000,000 in business-related debt.

    But at this time, this is all moot – Trump has endorsed Romney (for the time being).
