Want Total Freedom and No Responsibility? Be a Democrat!

Filed under: Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:36 AM (03:36)

Apparently, being a Democrat makes you immune to the Beer Bug. Who knew?

This immunity doesn’t seem to discriminate between the lefty-fascist “progressive” kind, the “conservative” or “libertarian” kind or the Republican-wannabe Establishment kind.

The DNC’s nominee for First Crook, Creepy Joe, is a prime example of the last kind.

From Kamala Harris’ Twitter feed — 8:20 AM ⋅ August 17, 2020

In that picture, it’s plainly obvious that this is a gathering of more than five [5] people, and that they do not appear to be practicing any “social distancing” protocols.

As the TV pitchmen say, “But wait, there’s more!

In this second picture, it’s plain to see that not only are they not “social distancing,” but they aren’t wearing the idiotic masks that they insist that the rest of us wear any time that we step outside of our homes.

H/T Joseph L. Roberts — Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at 8:01 AM

It seems like Eric July called it last month when he [sarcastically] said in a video clip that “the virus is woke” and able to tell what your politics are, and only infect those who aren’t lefty fascist types of the sort that are working for the DNC, its affiliates and candidates.

After all, when you’re a lefty fascist whackjob, you can get away with just about anything, as Larry Correia writes:

When a lone nut job maniac goes on a mass shooting, he represents all gun owners (even if his manifesto is all pro gun control). Even if he’s a raving left winger or has no coherent philosophy at all, he represents all republicans/Christians/white men/whatever group the left has a hate boner for this week. And the existence of this lone nut maniac irreparably taints half the population of America with guilt, even if they have nothing in common with him at all.

However, if somebody wearing a hoody and a ski mask, looting, burning shit, while chanting fuck the police and flying the hammer and sickle, gets caught on video beating someone with a baseball bat… HOW DARE YOU ASSUME THEY ARE ANTIFA?!? HE DOES NOT HAVE AN ANTIFA NAME TAG ON! WHERE IS HIS ANTIFA ID CARD? HOW DARE YOU SMEAR THESE INNOCENT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PEOPLE WITH THE ACTIONS OF A FEW BAD APPLES?!?

This may sound crazy, but just remember. If you are on the right you share collective guilt for every bad thing which has ever happened, even if it was done by people on the left. And if you are on the left, you are free from sin because you Care Harder.

On the individual level, if you are on the right, you are responsible for things that other people’s ancestors did 200 years ago. But if you are on the left, you aren’t responsible for what you are doing right now.

Also see this video clip, where the guy holding the gun on the woman in the car says (no way that I could have made this up) —

“I am not a cop, I will fucking shoot you. I’m a Democrat. I can shoot you because Democrats get away with everything.”

Stupor Tuesday 2020 — Overhyped and Underwhelming

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:24 AM (03:24)

Image H/T Stephen Carville

For what I’m seeing at about 3 AM, it looks like Gropey Joe Biden has won a lead on Bernie Sanders, with Sanders coming in second.

Whichever of them is the eventual DNC nominee matters not much to me, as the chances of my casting a ballot for either of them is as close to zero without actually being zero.

On a side note, Amy Klobuchar and Petey Buttigieg dropped out and endorsed Gropey Joe. Did Joe cop a courtesy feel on each of them as a consolation prize?

The best news of the night comes in two parts:

  1. Bloomberg, a real-life Duke of New York, came in third place after he blew through about 500,000,000 of his personal cash reserve while pitching his promotion of victim disarmament policies as a good thing. Serves him right. He appears to be re-assessing whether or not to continue a seperate campaign, or to back Gropey Joe. To be fair, the Duke did win American Samoa.
  2. On the Republican side of it all, Mr. Bill the Original Weldist got his head handed to him by T.rump. At this time (Wednesday, 5 March at 3 AM), Mr. Bill doesn’t seem to have received more than ten percent (10%) of the votes cast in any state, including his home state of Massachusetts. To date, his highest vote total seems to be that of the News Hampshire primary, where he got about 13-14 % of the votes cast. Even there, for every vote Mr. Bill got, T.rump got SIX votes. But that doesn’t stop him from sending out fundraising emails saying “this is our chance to take down Donald Trump.”

On the LP side of the 2020 presidential camapign season, Lincoln Chafee seems to be coming in a solid eleventh place, and deservedly so, as Chafee, like Mr. Bill who reportedly encouraged him to run as a “Libertarian,” doesn’t seem to have the slightest clue of what the Libertarian Party is supposed to be all about. (I for one am still waiting to see any evidence that Mr. Bill cares or ever did care about the Non-Aggression Principle. Not holding my breath here.)

Just Say “NO!” to Tim Keller

Filed under: Philosophy — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:44 AM (04:44)

Why should I support Tim Keller for Mayor of Albuquerque?

I don’t.

Allow me some space to list some reasons —

OK, that’s enough. He wants any more publicity from me, he can send me a check for it. Because I’ve already paid for it, to a degree — see the bit above about tax-funded campaigning.

Just Say No 2017-2018 v1

Filed under: Media, Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:21 AM (05:21)

“After Albuquerque mayoral candidate Brian Colón filed his first campaign finance report, he issued a statement touting the $357,000 he raised and the support he received from ‘some of the area’s key stakeholders.’

“But Colón has returned $5,150 to one of those key stakeholders — Attorney General Hector Balderas — after the Secretary of State’s Office determined that the contribution wasn’t legal because it was made through Balderas’ campaign fund.”
Albuquerque Journal: Mayoral candidates forced to return some contributions, by Martin Salazar, Journal Staff Writer

Shouldn’t Balderas as the sitting State Attorney General have been aware that he was about to make an illegal campaign contribution and thus refrained from doing so?

Of all people, the State Attorney General should expected to know the current law and stick to it.

If Balderas is going to use the line “Ignorance of the law is no excuse” against others, then he shouldn’t be breaking the law himself.

Likewise, Colón, being a practicing attorney and member of the NM Bar Association himself, should also have known the law and not accepted the 5,150 from Balderas.

At any rate, I will be scratching Balderas’ name off of my list of acceptable gubernatorial candidates at this point.

Nor will I be supporting Richard Berry’s 2018 gubernatorial bid.

Likewise, I will not be supporting either Brian Colón or Dan Lewis to be the next Mayor of Albuquerque.

Aside from the mayoral candidacy of Wayne Johnson, I’ll be supporting either Dumpster Fire or Cthulhu for mayor.

Does Trump Arouse You?

Filed under: Dark Side, Fun, Humor, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 12:59 AM (00:59)

No, Trump doesn’t arouse me in any way, but apparently he does get those who claim to hate and fear him a bit on the frisky side, as evidenced by this letter to Dan Savage’s Savage Love column —

I’m a longtime fan – reader and listener – and part of the 47 percent of white women who did NOT vote for Donald Trump. To say I’m disappointed, horrified, scared, and mad about the election is woefully insufficient. I donated $100 to Planned Parenthood this morning because I honestly felt like there was nothing else I could do. That being said, I wanted to share that I had one of the most weirdly charged, hottest, and sexiest orgasms. A little buzzed (dealing with those election results) and sad, my boyfriend and I turned to each other for consolation. One thing led to another, and before I knew it, we were fucking as Trump came on the TV to give his acceptance speech. As that orange blowhard spewed more bullshit about being our president, I rode my boyfriend’s big, beautiful dick until I came. It was the perfect way to say, “Fuck this. Now fuck me.” I encourage all your readers to fuck out the stress from this election. Yes, we should donate and volunteer and speak up and protest and vote and not give up hope, but we should also keep doing it and taking care of each other. Because love trumps hate, and fucking trumps . . . well, I’m not sure what fucking trumps. But it sure makes life better.

– Justifiably Unsettled Lass Intensely Emoting

And then Savage doubles down on the lust born from hate or fear of Trump, as demonstrated by “JULIE” —

It’s important to practice good self-care in the wake of a traumatic event – the election qualifies as a traumatic event – and going by the definition of self-care at GoodTherapy.org, fucking the living shit out of someone qualifies as self-care: “Actions that an individual might take in order to reach optimal physical and mental health . . . Self-care [includes] activities that an individual engages in to relax or attain emotional well-being, such as meditating, journaling, or visiting a counselor.”

They’re too polite over at GoodTherapy.org to include “fucking the shit out of someone” on their list of examples, JULIE, but what you did on election night – which just so happens to be the exact same thing I did on election night – certainly meets all the criteria.

And if anyone out there who did the same on election night – fucked the shit out of someone – is feeling the least bit guilty, please know that millions of Americans did the exact same thing after 9/11. We used a different term to describe all that post-9/11 fucking: “terror-sex,” which New York magazine defined as “urgent, unguarded, end-of-the-world coitus inspired by that day’s sudden jolt of uncertainty and fear.”

I want to thank you for writing, JULIE, and I want to second your recommendation: Sex, partnered or solo, makes life better – and people shouldn’t feel guilty about fucking someone else and / or fucking / jacking / dildo-ing themselves at this uncertain and fearful moment in our nation’s history. Yes, we must donate and volunteer and protest and vote, all while reminding ourselves daily that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. And we must commit to defending our friends, neighbors, and coworkers who are immigrants (documented or not), Muslims (American born, immigrants, or refugees), people of color, women seeking reproductive health care, trans men and women seeking safety, lesbian and gay men seeking to protect their families, and everyone and everything else Trump has threatened to harm, up to and including the planet we all live on.

But we must make time for joy and pleasure and laughter and friends and food and art and music and sex. During the darkest days of the HIV / AIDS epidemic, when Republicans and religious conservatives controlled the federal government and were doing everything in their power to harm the sick and dying, queers organized and protested and volunteered and mourned. We also made music and theater and art. We took care of each other, and we danced and loved and fucked. Embracing joy and art and sex in the face of fear and uncertainty made us feel better – it kept us sane – and it had the added benefit of driving our enemies crazy. They couldn’t understand how we could be anything but miserable, given the challenges we faced – their greed, their indifference, their bigotry – but we created and experienced joy despite their hatred and despite this awful disease. We turned to each other – we turned to our lovers and friends and sometimes strangers – and said, “Fuck them. Now fuck me.”

We didn’t eradicate HIV / AIDS, the disease that was sickening us then, but we fought it to a standstill and we may defeat it yet. The disease that now sickens our nation is different. We may never eradicate racism and sexism and hatred. But fight it we will. And don’t listen to anyone who tells you that music and dance and art and sex and joy are a distraction from the fight. They are a part of the fight.

So why aren’t there any blog posts from conservative or libertarians expounding on their fear or hate of Hillary Clinton making them horny?

[LPNM] A Modest Proposal

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:42 PM (17:42)

Now that the LPNM[1] has apparently attained “major party” status for the second time[2], the LPNM will most likely be awash in those of all stripes who expect the Party and its members to toss the Non-Aggression Principle in the trash because, well, how else can we support the legislation that they advocate?

Not only that, but many of these people will insist on being LPNM candidates, party officers, what have you, because after all, no one truly understands how trashing the NAP will bring us to liberty in our lifetimes like they do.

I propose that while they might be very willing to delegate that initiation of force to the public sector, they probably don’t have the stomach to do it personally.

Thus I suggest that we offer them knives, or clubs, or whatever, and let them demonstrate that they do indeed personally have what it takes.

This scene from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight (2008) comes to mind —

I have no intention of starting a civil war in the LP’s ranks (one could argue that one has been going on since 2006[3]), but let’s head this off before we end up like the Reform Party of 2000, from which I had read accounts of actual physical fist-fights on the business floor of their national convention.

Especially when I keep seeing articles that the entire county may be headed for a civil war itself. NOT the sort of thing that happened between 1861 and 1865, but more like The Troubles in Northern Ireland, with a rural vs. urban component to it for kicks.

In either case, we of principle aren’t going away. Nor will we voluntarily disarm ourselves.[4]


NOTES

  1. If there are any other state affiliates of the LPUSA facing similar circumstances, I have no problems with them adapting this proposal to their purposes.
  2. The LPNM briefly attained “major party status from 1999 to 2001 after Maurice McDonald ran for State Land Commissioner in 1998 and recieved about 9% of the total votes cast, which was equivalent to 5% of the votes cast in that year’s gubernatorial election.
