Flipside

This is an addendum to my previous post. I received quite vitriolic responses in gmail to ‘Power to the PEOPLE’. Some thought I was being melodramatic while others accused me of conspiracy mongering.
Honestly, I have no problem with individuals removing themselves from the gene pool. Whether directly or indirectly, their posthumously earned “Darwin Award” is reward to all of humanity. Indeed, our only regret should be that a few of managed to procreate prior to their personal extinction. Passing on a proclivity for violence, stupidity, or willful ignorance should be considered a ‘crime against humanity’!
However, moderating interpersonal exchanges is not a modus operandi for our youth as it should be, instilled by parents no less. Any law enforcement officer knows it is his training & duty that requires just such a practice. Emptying half of a gun’s magazine into an assailant is ridiculously far from moderate
Anyone in authority has a solemn duty to act with restraint & judicious caution. Alas, with the untimely demise of Michael Brown, those qualities were sorely lacking. Such officers should be psychologically screened before being given a toy gun!
The last thing we all need is for a ‘ Barney Fife ‘ to be wielding deadly force for it increasingly often is.

Power to the PEOPLE

Government can be domestic

The events playing out in Ferguson, Missouri are not random, isolated, nor new. The progression should be predictable by now. Alas, “teacher” salaries & statist propaganda are more important than schools & education. Please pardon an aside as I believe it is crucial to understand the context.
Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Yet, how can we learn when our schools spend most on middle management than on classroom instructors. American screw-alls (schools) are outranked by 15 other nations while expending more than all of them per student …combined !
Government restricts the rights of people for its own good. Most often to the point of violation. The violations become the rule rather than than the exception. Unjust actions are justified by a government’s legal code. If that code makes recourse negligible (impossible), then it makes revolution eligible (inevitable).
People must insist on their rights apart from government for the good of both it & themselves. The success of the government yields  dispossession & oppression. The success of the people leads to resolution or revolution, whichever comes first.
Ignorance speeds over-regulation.
Over-regulation cedes to tyranny.
Tyranny breeds fear.
Fear feeds resentment.
Resentment leads to anger.
Anger seeds rebellion.
Are we there yet? This conflict is as old as ancient Greece. If the powerful seize your bread & butter, then will it leave you dead or any better?!
Perhaps Michael Brown’s reaction to the officer were irrational. Fear can do that. However, a police officer’s 1st duty is to diffuse & expedite closure and not infuse & escalate an interaction. You don’t check the contents of a gas cannister with a match.
Here is an admission of a former presidential candidate:
“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will.
Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them. These will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” — Frederick Douglass,

Rand Paul is Correct

Our governments’ response to terrorists:
If you can’t beat them, join them (e.g. act like them). There’s nothing like visceral, servile fear to quell a public that’s angered by their abuse at the hands of their own government.
Militarization of police is a precaution to massive uprisings (if not revolution) that current policies inevitably engender. These aren’t my thoughts

Arrested For Romance

20140726082356Arrested For Romance?!
16th Aug, 2013
HAMPSTEAD, NC

After a 3 month search, jack-booted nazis of the Pender County Sheriff’s Office (conspiring with the US Marshall’s Office) kidnapped a father & daughter accused of incest.
In state propaganda on Friday, local terrorist (Captain Jamie Ezzell) stated that Robert Lee Early and his daughter were taken hostage from their home. A fatwa (warrant) was issued against them on May 16.
Robert Lee Early was egregiously arrested for Incest, Statutory Rape, and Negligent Child Abuse. (The nature of their relationship evolved, though not sexual,before the daughter turned 18.) He was held for a $650,000 ransom. Negotiations progressed.
Natalie Sheree Early (now 22) was also accused of Incest. She was held for a $10,000 ransom but released following negotiations.
America’s founding fathers stated that citizens have a right “to be secure their our persons, papers, and properties“.
THIS PERSECUTION MUST END…by all means!
