In 2014, following the Russian invasion of Crimea, The Washington Post published the results of a poll that asked Americans about whether the United States should intervene militarily in Ukraine. Only one in six could identify Ukraine on a map; the median response was off by about 1,800 miles. But this lack of knowledge did not stop people from expressing pointed views. In fact, the respondents favored intervention in direct proportion to their ignorance. Put another way, the people who thought Ukraine was located in Latin America or Australia were the most enthusiastic about using military force there. The following year, Public Policy Polling asked a broad sample of Democratic and ...
On Trump’s Solutions to Mass Shootings
Post Date: 2019-08-07 08:31:19 by Deckard
Op-Ed by Scott Lazarowitz More mass shootings again. In El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. So once again Donald Trump and his fellow politicians are turning to more fascist proposals to solve the issue of these young people shooting up places and killing people. More gun regulations, background checks and Red Flag laws, none of which will help to prevent the violent episodes. The dysfunction going on now is mainly a result of government intrusions and government interventionism in the first place, so just how will more government intrusions and interventions solve any problems? They wont. Bureaucrats will only make things worse, as they are now. Why would we want to trust ...
America, Love It or Leave It!
Post Date: 2019-07-17 09:33:00 by Deckard
President Trumps rant against four members of Congress, all of whom are American citizens, in which he told them to return to their crime-infested countries, brings to mind the rant that conservatives have long used against anyone who disagrees with the policies or programs of the U.S. government: America, love it or leave it! Anyone who lived during the Vietnam War era will recall that this was a favorite refrain of conservatives against anyone who opposed the war. The opponents of the war were accused of hating America and were often told that since they obviously didnt love their country, they should move to North Vietnam or some other communist ...
When Should You Shoot A Cop? (Another shit article from Decktard)
Post Date: 2019-07-16 05:38:32 by Deckard
That question, even without an answer, makes most “law-abiding taxpayers” go into knee-jerk conniptions. The indoctrinated masses all race to see who can be first, and loudest, to proclaim that it is NEVER okay to forcibly resist “law enforcement.” In doing so, they also inadvertently demonstrate why so much of human history has been plagued by tyranny and oppression.
In an ideal world, cops would do nothing except protect people from thieves and attackers, in which case shooting a cop would never be justified. In the real world, however, far more injustice, violence, torture, theft, and outright murder has been committed IN THE NAME of “law enforcement,” than has been committed in ...

Fourth of July should celebrate liberty, not politicians like Trump
Post Date: 2019-07-04 09:57:04 by Deckard
by James Bovard President Donald Trumps plan to give an Independence Day televised address from the Lincoln Memorial has outraged many pundits and plenty of normal Americans, too. There has rarely been a shortage of political buncombe on July Fourth but Trump could, as usual, break all records.For Trumps extravaganza, the Pentagon is bringing out of mothballs some World War II-era Sherman tanks. Though the gun turrets look impressive, Allied soldiers nicknamed Sherman tanks Ronsons because they were death traps that light first every time in clashes with better built German tanks. But that painful fact, like many others, will be swept under ...

Theres a reason why you almost never hear Talking Heads talk about sex not the act; the bifurcation of normal mammals into male and female while they talk endlessly about gender.Which isnt biological and thus is fungible.A biological man can claim he feels hes female and shazam! by dint of those feelings and his assertions regarding them his biological sex (male) becomes gender female . . . because she insists. Well, one could just as logically assert Lobsterhood on the same basis and insist on appropriate accommodations, such as brine tanks in all public places as well as other things not as ...
Vets Who Use Medical Marijuana Shouldn't Have to Give Up Second Amendment Rights
Post Date: 2019-06-21 05:43:34 by Deckard
17 (© Vanesa Dellacqua - Dreamstime.com) Despite many states legalizing medical marijuana, the fact that it remains illegal under federal law has forced some U.S. military veterans into a difficult choice. Using the drug to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) could cost them their their constitutional right to bear arms.The problem results from a question that gun buyers must answer when going through a federal background check: "Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?" Underneath this question on the federal "Firearms Transaction Record" form, the Bureau of ...
Consenting To Be Paid for Sex Is Still Consenting!
Post Date: 2019-06-04 06:18:53 by Deckard
(Joanna Andreasson. Source image: drante/iStock) Most modern people agree that every individual has the right to set his or her own conditions of consent, even if few of us think about daily life in those terms. "You can borrow my car if you promise to have it back by 4 p.m." is an example of conditional consent at work. "I'll perform this labor for you in exchange for x amount of compensation" is another. "I will have sex with you if you agree to use a condom" is a third.In the realm of sex, consent has been elevated to the level of a sacred word. But in practice, most of us believe in a host of exceptions. We think that some people ...
The Drug War Is Totally Idiotic
Post Date: 2019-06-03 09:34:27 by Deckard
Pardon me for being blunt, but it would be difficult to find anything more idiotic than the war on drugs, an ongoing federal program that has been enacted and enforced by both Republicans and Democrats for decades. The program is sheer idiocy in that its supporters continue to keep it going despite the manifest failure, violence, ruination of lives, expense, racism, and destruction of liberty and privacy that this federal program has produced and continues to produce.But hope springs eternal in the minds of the drug wars supporters and enforcers. Each new drug bust over the decades, oftentimes accompanied with a large amount of hoopla from the mainstream press, provides these people ...
Abolish the FBI
Post Date: 2019-05-31 09:14:01 by Deckard
As a libertarian, let me make my position clear with respect to the FBI: It should be abolished, not reformed or reined in. Thats because in a free society there is no national police force. Criminal justice, along with all the power a criminal-justice system entails, is best left at the state and local level. National police forces are inherent to totalitarian regimes, such as those in Iran, North Korea, and China. Thus, its not a coincidence that the Framers did not provide for a FBI in the Constitution, just as it isnt a coincidence that our American ancestors did not have a FBI for more than a century after the Constitution called the federal government into existence. ...
The Fleeting Feeling of Freedom
Post Date: 2019-05-24 05:23:01 by Deckard
Every now and then, I do something risky and illegal, to remind myself what it was like when we were still relatively free. I roll one of my old bikes out of the garage and take it for a ride around the backroads near my place without a helmet on. This used to be legal, once upon a time on the sound premise that it was your head to break and so your business to risk it. Then it became the business of busybodies and control freaks aka, the government, which passes laws that assert the contrary. It is important to keep this in mind. That there is no such beast as the government. It is a term a manipulation only; a technique for getting ...
The Time Has Come for Patriotic Dissent: Stopping War With Iran Is Essential
Post Date: 2019-05-22 06:17:45 by Deckard
What if they called a war and no one came? Well, nows the time folks. The apparent march to war with Iran represents a pivotal moment in the historical arc the rise and fall of our republic come empire. This potential war is so unnecessary, so irrational, that it borders on the absurd. Still, since the U.S. now fields a professional, volunteer military, few citizens have skin in the game. As such, they could hardly care less. Unlike in past wars think Vietnam there is no longer a built in, established antiwar movement. This is unfortunate, and, dangerous for a democracy. See the US Government operates with near impunity in foreign affairs, ...

Owen Benjamin is a conservative commentator who discusses/critiques the culture from a "Regular Guy"/Common Sense perspective. The discussion within government circles and sources is whether to "spread Democracy" and "our values" on Iran by military means. Benjamin discusses the motivation, morality and hypocrisy of the same US Government that since Iraq War II has been assuring Americans they and our military have indeed been "spreading democracy" (while corrupting and destroying America's own democracy and culture.)

Riding Dirty Daydreams
Post Date: 2019-05-17 10:09:04 by Deckard
Lately I have been giving serious thought to riding dirty without insurance. Just cancelling all of it. The savings would be considerable equivalent to eliminating my monthly electric bill as well as my monthly Internet bill and a portion of my monthly food bill. These things I need and so I buy them, without anyone jabbing me in the back with a bayonet. I am happy to pay for these things because I do need them. I am grateful to those who provide them. The insurance Im forced to buy for my vehicles? Not so happy about this. I need vehicle insurance like I need a mortgage payment on a condo in Hungary. I have never visited Hungary. I ...
Why Even Staunch Conservatives Should Support Marijuana Decriminalization
Post Date: 2019-05-16 11:30:58 by Deckard
By Matt Liles For a brief moment, marijuana decriminalization in Texas was a bipartisan possibility. The Texas House recently approved a bill that would have prohibited the arrest of individuals for possession of an ounce or less of marijuana. But when it was passed on to the state Senate, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick immediately gathered a Republican majority in opposition and killed the bill. Like in Texas, swaths of conservatives around the country are holding out against the rising tide of decriminalization as more states are eliminating criminal penalties for possession. While this might be well-intentioned, its a mistakemarijuana decriminalization is firmly in line ...
Tlaib and Omar: Despicable daughters of evi
Post Date: 2019-04-30 10:35:40 by IbJensen
(Birds of a feather) Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., are rabidly anti-Semitic Muslim bigots and haters of America. Collectively, with their congressional Muslim counterparts, they unambiguously showcase every negative opinion held by civilized human beings who distrust their kind. They are uncouth, common, contumacious daughters of evil, who find America and Israel objectionable but somehow overlook the treatment of Islamic women and girls. Specific to same, lets ask how far the congresswomens duplicitous double standards extend. Both of these women openly defend Shariah law. I want them to tell us what its like to have a mother, grandmother ...
The 10 Most Destructive Americans of My 8 Decades
Post Date: 2019-04-25 07:47:36 by IbJensen
America has undergone enormous change during the nearly eight decades of my life. Today, America is a bitterly divided, poorly educated and morally fragile society with so-called mainstream politicians pushing cynical identity politics, socialism and open borders. The president of the United States is threatened with impeachment because the other side doesnt like him. The once reasonably unbiased American media has evolved into a hysterical left wing mob. How could the stable and reasonably cohesive America of the 1950s have reached this point in just one lifetime? Who are the main culprits? Heres my list of the 10 most destructive Americans of the last 80 years. 10) Mark ...
Why Bernie Sanders Can Defeat Donald Trump in 2020
Post Date: 2019-04-20 08:26:05 by Hondo68
With his veto this week of legislation intended to end United States military support for the war on Yemen, President Donald Trump may have ensured his defeat to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the 2020 presidential election. That is an argument political commentator Patrick J. Buchanan persuasively presents in a new editorial.With that veto, writes Buchanan, Trump may have just ceded the peace issue in 2020 to the Democrats. Buchanan continues: If Sanders emerges as the nominee, we will have an election with a Democrat running on the no-more-wars theme Trump touted in 2016. And Trump will be left defending the bombing of Yemeni rebels and civilians by Crown Prince ...

The Top Ten Evilest People of All-Time
Post Date: 2019-04-06 10:29:20 by IbJensen
Have you ever wondered who the evilest people to ever walk this earth are? Adolf Hitler always seems to be the go-to reference in such conversations. It is a difficult thing to quantify. Do we do it statistically that is, according to who killed the most people or should it be based on their evil influence on history? My list relies on both. Of course, its totally subjective, but those making the Top Ten might surprise you. So, starting in reverse order, I give you a list of people who will make you feel better about yourself: 10. (tie) The Kims: Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il, and Kim Jong-un This is quite possibly historys worst political dynasty. In addition to ...

A Conspiracy Theorist Confesses to his Petty Crimes
Post Date: 2019-04-03 07:38:50 by Deckard
By Edward Curtin Our research has shown for the first time the role that conspiracy theories can play in determining an individuals attitude to everyday crime. It demonstrates that people subscribing to the view that others have conspired might be more inclined toward unethical actions. Professor Karen Douglas, University of Kent press release for the research, entitled Belief in Conspiracy Theories and Intentions to Engage in Everyday Crime, in the British Journal of Social Psychology Let me be perfectly clear from the outset. I am not referring to the conspiracy theories of George W. Bush, Colin Powell, Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, Donald Trump ...
Conservatives and Progressives Are Denialists
Post Date: 2019-03-15 08:58:01 by Deckard
One of the major differences between libertarians, on the one hand, and conservatives and progressives, on the other, is with respect to freedom and reality. When it comes to the concept of freedom, libertarians have a grip on reality. Conservatives and progressives dont. Both conservatives and liberals are convinced that they live in a free society. This mindset is reflected in various ways. The Pledge of Allegiance comes to mind. Having had this pledge inculcated in them in public schools since the first grade, conservatives and liberals continue to recite it at public events long into adulthood and all the way until the day they die. As they dutifully put their hands on their ...
